China Glaze No Plain Jane

I was pretty excited to hit up the clearance sale at Sally this past weekend. I was able to get my hands on some great finds. And because I had a “$5 off a purchase of $5 or more” coupon from renewing my card, I only paid $0.77 for four polishes. Four of them.

Exciting yes?

This is one of the great finds.

NoPlainJane1No Plain Jane is one of the lovely duochromes released in the Bohemian Collection.

NoPlainJane2.1And since it’s New Year’s Eve, as if the pretty duochrome wasn’t enough, I decided to layer a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust on it. Holographic glitter deliciousness.


Be safe out there tonight.



Wet ‘n Wild Buffy The Violet Slayer

Just a quick nail I did a couple of days ago. I received this polish as a gift from a friend.


I had been wanting this polish for a little bit.

I don’t know if it was the formula or the brush (or a combination of both), but it was a chore getting this on my nails.



Have a good rest of your weekends. 🙂

Sally Hansen Marine Scene

Tonight’s post is really random.

While I was sitting here freezing, I said to myself: “Self–why don’t you paint your nails blue to match the temperature of your fingers?”

So I went digging through my blue/purple drawer to find something I hadn’t shown before. I was looking for my OPI Ink, but came across this one instead.



I’ve had this one stuffed in my stash for over a year. I bought it at Big Lots for a buck.

It’s got a little duochrome flash–green and blue. Not too terribly noticeable. Still cute though.



It’s very thin. This is four coats plus topcoat.


P.S. For those of you who heard about the tornadoes roaring through Mobile, David and I are fine. The majority of the damage was in our neighborhood, though. Light a candle for those who lost their homes.

Rudolph Nail Art for Chrimmas

I hope everyone is enjoying their chrimmas. 🙂  I know I am.

I started off with the famous Peppermint Bark mani (in honor of Nicole, who I miss very much).

Then, at my SFAM’s request, I added a Rudolph accent nail. 🙂

Rudolph1Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good night.



e.l.f. Red Velvet

I meant to post this before leaving for Miami last weekend, but I got sidetracked. My mother’s in the hospital, and (as you can imagine) things have been hectic.

RedVelvet1I received this polish from my Secret Santa for last year’s exchange. It’s a really pretty warm red with a gold shimmer.

RedVelvet2.1On a side note, I broke one of my nails, so they’re all filed down now. Maybe I will get around to showing another polish with the shorter length.
