New Year's Eve Mani!

Happy New Year's Eve everyone! I don't know about you but I am ready for 2013 and a fresh start. Since I'm just staying in with family tonight, my mani is probably more tame than most New Year's Eve manis but I love it.

L'Oreal The Queen's Ambition

Hi guys! Hope everyone is staying warm and dry. There has been a bit of stormy weather here in southern California. Today I have a fun polish that is a twist on the usual black that I think would be perfect for New Year's Eve. More pics and info after the jump!

Revlon Colorstay Rich Raspberry

Sorry for being a bad blogger lately :( I have been super busy with the holidays and stuff, but I am still here! Today I have a polish that is a great jewel tone for winter and isn't too dark. I don't know about you but I start getting sick of all the dark colors after  while even though I do love them on short nails.

Penguins!!! **Pic Heavy**

Happy Christmas Eve! Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season so far :) Sorry for my lack of posting these past couple days.... I have been really under the weather for the past couple of days. But to make up for it I have a nail art post today! I'm fairly new to nail art and I am just trying to get things figured out but I think this is pretty good for a newbie :).  I started off with 2 coats of Revlon Royal, a royal blue jelly that applied like a dream (there was still some VNL but not enough to bother me). Before I go on about penguins I have to say that I adore this so much. I have been looking for a royal blue for a long time and this one is amazing.

Revlon Emerald and Nail Art!

So today I have some Christmas nail art for you guys! I started off with a base of Revlon Top Speed Emerald.  I had originally just planned on swatching this but I liked it so much I decided to wear it and do some nail art. I then put Sally Hansen Cherry Red on my thumb.

Revlon Top Speed Varnished and Golden

Hi lovelies! Today I have two Revlon Top Speed polishes that I picked up during the CVS beauty clearance sale (which is still going on). These were actually my first Top Speed polishes and I really liked how quickly they dried.

China Glaze Swanky Silk

Hi lovelies! This polish was on my wishlist for a while and I recently found it in a clearance bin at Sally's for $3.29. Awesome deal. I think this is a great gold/ rose gold duochrome. I know a lot of you may not love a polish like this, but for me it is quite fun.

Orly Shimmering Mauve

Happy Monday! Today I have a great polish that transitions well from fall into winter and the holidays. Orly Shimmering Mauve really isn't mauve at all (at least to me). Its more of a shimmery red. This polish has that "glows from within" feel to it. It is nearly a foil finish and has very few brushstrokes. If you are careful this can be a one coater.

My First Nails Inc. Polish and Spazzing Camera

Have you ever bought a polish just because of the name? Once I heard that Nail's Inc. had a polish named Baker Street, it was immediately on my wishlist. Baker Street is not only the street on which my favorite literary character, Sherlock Holmes, lives, it is also a beautiful blue creme that I am in love with. For some reason it reminds me of winter so I added a lot of glitter which reminds me of snow and I have a wonderful winter mani. Enjoy!

Wet n Wild Gray's Anatomy over Wet Cement

Hello! Today I have two Wet n Wild polishes for you. These polishes are great for the nail polish addict on a budget- I believe that all of their polishes are under 2 bucks! I know that many of you absolutely hate the Megalast brush (think a bit wider than the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure brushes) but I do think that the polishes are totally worth the trouble.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Commander in Chic

Hi ladies!  Today I have one of the pre-reformulation CSM polishes to show you. I bought a bunch of them for under $2 at Walgreens. Its no secret, I adore gray nail polishes. I have about a million of them and they are all pretty and unique in their own way. This is a brown leaning gray that I simply adore.

Color Club Haul from Ross

Hi polish addicts! I don't really have many places near me to get Color Club polishes so I try to find them at stores like Ross. I recently found a collection of 6 polishes plus top coat in a package labeled "All About Color Collection". When I searched for info about it, I couldn't find much that pertained to the set I found. All the colors were different than the ones that others have posted about. Unfortunately all but one did not have names so I searched around the Internet to try to find names for these. I also found an unnamed Cosmetic Arts polish which I have heard are just renamed dupes of Color Club polishes.

NOTD: Revlon Silver Screen

Hi ladies! So I actually have no idea how old this polish is (haha). I hauled it recently at Ross in a 4 pack for only $4.99- more on this in an upcoming post. I really bought the pack for this shade and one other and let me tell you, it was well worth it. This is a wonderful metallic silver foil and I love it for fall and winter.
