Happy New Years Eve

Happy New Years' Eve everyone. I hope 2013 brings blessings of health, wealth and love to you all. I must say that 2012 has been quite an interesting year. Not so great but not so bad either. I am so grateful to be able to see another year come and go. Watching my beautiful daughter grow has been such a blessing. I wanted to enter our new year with lots of bling on my nails so here we have it. My very first attempt at real nail art.

 Can you tell that the design on my middle finger is a glass of champagne? I hope to improve my art skills in 2013 :)
I used a bunch of different polishes for this but I can't remember all the names. I know i used China Glaze Some Like It Haute, China Glaze Glistening Snow, China Glaze Angel Wings, LynB Designs Luxury Tax, an Icing polish and the gold glitter on my middle finger is a Julep.
Everyone has a blessed and safe night.

Tipsy Turvy Nails: Festivus

Hi guys! Today I have a polish that I should have shown you a long time ago but life somehow got in the way. Festivus by Tipsy Turvy Nails is a mix of blue hex and silver glitter in a clear base. It also has some silver holographic bar glitters in the mix. I believe it's part of their holiday collection. I used a coat over white and black so you can see how it looks over a light and dark base. The formula was good. The glitter payoff was pretty good as well.

You can find Tipsy Turvy Nails on etsy. You can also follow their blog, Can't Hold My Lacquer. You should check out their shop. Michelle and her sister have some great polish for sale,

Happy Holidays

Today is Christmas Eve and I have not posted even one Christmas mani...(hangs head in shame)
My head has just not been in the game lately. I have been suffering frequent headaches and migraines which has kind of put me into a mild depression with anxiety. I feel terrible that I have been so quiet on the blog front. It doesn't help that I took the shooting in Newtown here in Ct pretty badly. As a state and a nation I feel like we are all still grieving. With that being said, my resolution this new year will be to make a blogging comeback with a vengeance! I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season and I will be back soon. I love you all.

Devastated & Heart-Broken

I was unable to come up with anything to say about the heart wrenching tragedy that occured here in Newtown, CT yesterday. Words cannot describe the anger, the hurt and the fear we all feel. We are all grieving at this time. Here is my white mani for peace & non-violence for the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School.

My prayers go out to the families and friends of the victims of Newtown, CT & to those in Oregon as well.

Mmmm Nails: Red Hot Diva

Hi guys. I have not abandoned you guys. The holiday season is just a very busy and hectic one at work & home. Not to mention my latest health issues. For some reason I have been having migraines, no bueno. I promise I will post more after the holidays.
Today I have a polish from Mmmm Nails called Red Hot Diva. What a sexxy biotch she is too! I was amazed by how much I la la loved this polish. It's a red wine jelly with ruby red shimmer. Formula was great. I used 3 coats and top coat.

Mmmm Nails has an etsy shop and her polishes are very reasonably priced.

Glitzology: Island of Misfit Toys

Happy Saturday everyone! I know its a late posting but I was down for the count for a few days. For some reason I have been having migraine headaches. I'm feeling better now though. Anyone else watching the Miguel Cotto fight tonight on Showtime. He is so hot! and I'm not just saying that cuz he's boricua like me :)
I got some swatching done today. A major feat for me... WOOT WOOT!!! lol
One of the polishes I swatched today is from an Indie brand called Glitzology. I ordered this a few weeks ago and I just now have been able to try it out. I must say, I am quickly becoming an Indie addict. This polish is AMAZEBALLS!!!!!!! First of all, the name brings me  back to the holiday seasons of my childhood watching the cheap claymation cartoons like Island of Misfit Toys, Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town and all the rest. Island of Misfit Toys is a glitter bomb chock full of colorful delight! It has silver, red, orange, yellow, blue and green square & hex glitter as well as a black microbar glitter all swimming in a silvery shimmer base that was easily opaque in just 2 coats. It was thick but easy to work with. Take a look!

I used 2 coats with 2 coats of topcoat. I really love this polish. I ordered 2 others with this one and I went back to Glitzology's shop and ordered four more polishes.
You can find her shop on etsy.
