Happy New Year!!!!

Glitter! Sparkles! Frosts! Champagne – Sliver – Gold!!!

If there was any holiday more appropriate for this, I don’t know what it is.

However, I’ve opted for the beautifully muted Color Club “Sheer Disguise blue. 
Top Coat of Essie Luxe Effects “Shine of The Times”  (THANK YOU Liza! I am in LOVE with this top coat!! it’s like an iridescent flake-filled jelly = fun!)

My nails reflect the kind of celebrating I plan on doing this evening to bring in this new year:  Calmly chilling with a nice sparkle. Winking smile

Crayola…..–ish

My nails wanted to make a statement.  Wanted to be “heard”.

So I pulled out bold and bright primary & a couple secondary colors in the loudest temperature I owned. And let them scream.

For some odd reason the blue base in the purple is so strong it’s difficult to differentiate it from the blue in the pictures.  If I can get a clear picture to show PURPLE instead of blue, I will post asap!

It’s basic…… Crayola.

Beautiful Girl

Felt like a princess with a little crown after this manicure.

Maybe my expectations are too high now because I am not at all enamored with the formulation of this polish.  It’s a pretty color, but it’s thin, and slightly streaky.  You will most definitely have to use a minimum of two coats for any remote coverage and opacity.  I will still use it again… because like I said, it’s a pretty color.    Plus, I feel like a beautiful girl with it on.

Over Christmas

I loved the Christmas polish adventures…. but being happy that it’s over, I don’t really want to see anymore red and green polish for at least a couple of weeks!! 

so I ventured as far away from Christmas as I could when I painted my nails this time.

…but just some little freehand dotted flowers.

As many others have reviewed “White On White”…. they are all right.  It’s a very pretty and creamy white polish…. once you get enough coats of polish on.  It’s a streaky polish, but I only had to use 2 coats to achieve these results.  I had initially planned on purchasing OPI Alpine Snow… and actually, next time I will.  #NoDiss

Santa’s Belt

OurPaintedWorld!!! <—(click for link to blog) 

Cutest. design. ever. 
As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to try it. 

So, I used my favorite… OPI “I’m Not Really A Waitress”… striped OPI “Black Onyx across and made a “Glitter Hologram” buckle….

Voila! Santa’s belt.

I absolutely love this design. So fun! Really may work for any time of the year – if you’re a diva…. it’s all in the context.  Because it’s almost December 25th, we’ll just say this is holiday nail art.  Winking smile

O Christmas Tree

I haven’t put up nary a decoration in my place.  No tree, stockings, lights…. nada. 

Had to decorate somewhere, so…. you already know where that decoration landed…lol

Christmas tree, star, ornaments, and tree skirt….. only things missing here are the presents.
(feel free to give me gifts. I will gladly accept them) 😉
