Color Club Holiday Splendor

Today I have the awesome Color Club Holiday Splendor from the Beyond the Mistletoe collection. I decided to go ahead and layer it over black. I love the way this looks. My oldest son was also impressed. He made me promise to wear it again soon when I had to take it off after an unfortunate chipping incident at work. Holiday Splendor has some holo glitter in it that my poor camera was trying so hard to capture. Didn't work so well. Take my word for it, this polish is gorgeous.

Again due to sucko weather these photos were taken inside, next to the window.

Hope you're all having a wonderful day!

China Glaze Frostbite

This was taken inside

I have a lot of blue nail polish. I love blues! This blue just shot up the list of my favorite blues. It's amazing! This is China Glaze Frostbite. This is two coats although I think I might do three next time I wear it, with a topcoat. I have this on as I'm typing and I just can't stop checking out my nails. After putting it on, I decided to matte it. Oh my word it's freaking amazing! Kinda looks like metal on my nails but not shiny.

I think all but one or two of these pictures was taken outside in overcast conditions. The others were taken inside next to the window.


Can you see the weird white speck on my ring finger in the last photo? That is from my Essie Matte About You. It happened on a few fingers but I don't know why. Any ideas what's causing it?

Take care,

OPI Jade is the New Black

Thanks to my Secret Santa I am showing you OPI Jade is the New Black today. Such a pretty color. It is a jade cream that went on flawlessly with two coats. I don't own a ton of OPI but this one is so amazing I want to go buy more. I wore this one for six days I think. I was so sick I didn't even want to change my nail color. It wore very well. No chips and little tip wear. Granted I wasn't doing much other than holding down my couch.

Again these pictures were taken inside next to the window. No sun again. Sorry about the dry skin. It's winter, even in Phoenix it gets cold enough to cause it. I can only put on so much lotion.

Take a look and tell me what you think.

What's your favorite cream polish? Just curious.

Have a great day!

Finger Paints Winter Sky

Today I have Winter Sky by Finger Paints. It is part of their holiday collection. I only picked up this and the green (can't remember the name). I love this color. Not sure I can express to you all how much I love this. It has a subtle shimmer to it that I just love. This is two coats and the accent finger is one coat of China Glaze Atlantis. I have been wanting Atlantis for so long and my nail polish Secret Santa was so good to me. She took care of a couple lemmings I had. My secret santa was LaKeisha from Refined and Polished. If you haven't checked out her blog go do it now!

Sorry these pictures aren't the best. I've been so sick and we've had a stretch of icky weather. So no sun for me. These were taken inside, next to the window. My next couple of posts will be like this. Luckily the sun seems to be coming back.

See that amazing sparkle from Atlantis? I can't wait to wear this as a full mani.

I'm going to try and schedule a few post so I don't disappear on you again. I'm still really sick so no guarantees.

Take care,

So Sorry!

Hi Ladies,
Sorry I haven't been around but I have been so sick with some sort of mystery illness. Plus I have the cold that everyone has been passing around here. It's kicking my butt. I haven't even been doing my nails. Hopefully I'll be back soon and able to schedule some posts.

Have a great day!

China Glaze Midtown Magic


I wasn't even going to get this polish but then I found it on clearance at Sally's. My 8 yr old talked me into it and I am so glad he did. It is gorgeous! Midtown Magic is a jellyish brown full of amazing shimmer. I don't think my pictures do it justice. Check it out!


I think this picture show off the color best. Sun


So glad I picked this up. What's you all time favorite China Glaze color? Right now mine is Custom Kicks. Just can't get enough of that color.

See ya next time!

Color Club Nouveau Vintage

Hi Everyone,

Today I have Color Club Nouveau Vintage. This color is beautiful. I bought the Back to Boho set just for this color. There are other great colors in the set but this is my favorite. In the bottle this color has a bit of green to it but that doesn't come across on the nail. This is two coats of bronze/copper perfection.

This color is just stunning! What was your favorite Back to Boho color?

Take care,
