Girls Night!!

So last night my sister Mel, and my bff Sarah came over for a little girl time. They wanted to do their nails which was fine with me, especially since Sarah is a Salonaholic, and almost never paints her own nails. 
Funny enough they picked almost the exact same things, and the little difference is definitely conducive to their personalities.

Sarahs Nails: OPI Fly & Konad Princess white

Plates M57 & M13

Mels nails: Zoya Jo & Konad Princess White, Plates M57 &M28
I like the skulls on Sarahs nails better, but Mel HATES them, they just aren't punk enough for her :P I'm gonna practice free handing anarchy symbols for her, for next time, lol. I'll let you guys know how that works out. As always thanks for checking my pics hope you like them!

Im a barbie girl O.o?

So I recently bought Seche Restore, and went on a nail polish saving mission. Most of my shatters were dry and the brushes were all gunky, so I added a few drops in hope that they would ungunk, and boy did they ever. The consistency of the polish was back to perfect after only 30 seconds and by the next day the brushes were completely chunky free. Needless to say I felt the need to bring them out of retirement, now without further ado, my Barbie inspired mani!

You can kind of see the Essie Pure Pearlfection

For this I used Color Club Electro Candy, OPI White Shatter, then topped it with Essie Luxeffects Pure Pearlfection, and Revlon Speed Dry Top Coat. I can't lie, I kind of hate Pink, but I really wanted to use the white shatter and for some reason I felt I had to put it over pink, so bleh. Hope everybody has a great weekend!

Blast from the past!

Lately I have seen a lot of blogs featuring old Sally Hansen polishes, many of which one of my sisters owned at some time or another, and it makes me sad. I missed out on so many awesome nail trends. One, however, I didn't miss out on was the original SH Chromes. When I was in like grade 9, these were the hottest thing around, and all the cool girls had them, me included. Anyways last night my bfffffff x10000 Sarah, was at my house for a mini girls date night and for whatever random reason we started talking about the chromes, and buying nail polish at garage sales. So she goes i think i still have one in a drawer somewhere, and low and behold the next day she shows up at my house with it, and its still in perfect condition!! So of course we had to do it up old school, check it out!!

No name on the bottle but its blue chrome

Bathroom lights- look at how shiny it is!!

You can see every knick bump and brush stroke

Im in love all over, lol, but seriously this is going with all my stamping stuff cause this is one is super wicko gross-o goody as my son would say. You guys have any old favorites from your younger years still lying around??

Toxic Kitty

I don't know whats up with the animal print thing I have going on right now.

Base colour is Color Club Tangerine Scream from their Electro Candy collection, and I love it. Its a true safety orange with a really subtle greenish blue shimmer, and was fully opaque with only 2 coats. Once it was dry I stamped with Konad special black and plate M57. 
To me this color was just begging for some leopard spots, what do you guys think?

Another Zebra mani

When my last mani chipped off i was like i should try white with black stripes so here it is!!

The little stringies from the egde of the stamp flopped back onto my pinky nail
I used Orly Au Champagne which i LOVE - its a pearly white that dries to a satiny finish. I stamped the stripes with China Glaze Awaken and Konad plate M67. I would have loved to keep it with that satiny Orly finish, but i knew it would chip so i slapped some Seche on top. Personally i like this version better than the last, but my husband preferred the other one, oh well. Hope you all like it :D

Nails of the day

You can see where I schmucked it on a transformer

It looks really bad in the pics its barely noticeable in real life.

 I used Soulstice Space Troy as the base colour and stamped with Wet & Wild White and Konad plate M57. This is my first time using the Zebra print, I think it looks pretty good. I really love troy, I think I need to wear it more!!

Nail Biting Relapse :(((

Well in the stress of the holidays, and many chipped and ripped nails, I managed to completely bite off all my long beautiful nails :((( Disgusting I know, and an unfortunate habit I have had since childhood. Anyways if anybody actually reads my lame little blog I probably wont be posting much for a while, but I will keep reading all your blogs <3
