NOTD: China Glaze Millennium + Techno

Good morning!

I wanted to show you one of the manis that I might be sporting for NYE. A friend of mine might be coming down from Birmingham to watch the Beach Ball Drop. I haven’t seen this friend in well over a year, so I’m hoping plans go as scheduled. 🙂

Millennium is the silver base you see. I have the hardest time painting my nails with these mirror-type-finish polishes because I always wind up streaking them. Probably why you won’t see a swatch of Millennium by itself any time soon LoL. However, it does make an excellent stamping polish.

Now Techno… that is the holographic blingtastic glitter you see before you. It is large hex holographic glitter as well as small regular holo glitter in a clear base. This is approximately three coats I’ve got going on here (the larger pieces were not wanting to deposit onto my nails). It will probably never build up into something you can wear by itself.

I received Techno from my blogger Secret Santa (thank you Bridget!!!!!).

Enjoy and have a safe New Year’s Eve. 🙂

P.S. I figured I’d do the public service announcement:

Tipsy Tow offered by AAA: You don’t have to be a AAA member, from 6pm-6am on New Year’s Eve/Day they will take your drunken self and your car home for FREE. Save this number… 1-800-222-4357.

NOTD: Julep Michelle

Hey there!

I decided that, since it was the holiday season and this color screams holiday to me, I would finally show you what came in my Maven box for November (I paused my December box, so you’ll get a small break lol).

Michelle is that perfect navy blue creme. It always looks blue, never black. Did I tell y’all that navy blue is my favorite color? I kind of ruined it when I made my first wedding bridesmaids wear it, but the hell with it–I’m taking it back. (The dresses were freaking sexy-hot though).

This three coats with a coat of Seche. The blue background you’ve been seeing for the last few posts? That’s the sky outside.

Gratuitous shot. Oh yeah, you’ll probably be seeing this color again as the backdrop for nail art later in the month. 🙂

And because navy blue and silver is one of my all-time favorite color combinations, I’ve got a silver glitter gradient for you:

Ahh… metallic snowfall. I love it.

Do y’all know that I don’t own a plain silver glitter polish? I have gold and holo out the wazoo, but no silver. I did this with a nail art striper.


Blast from the Past: China Glaze The Ten Man

Wow, that's a frightening shade of pale lol

Don’t look too hard and you won’t be blinded by the pale.  😉

Anyhow, this is The Ten Man (with cute lil heart stickers) from China Glaze’s Wizard of Ooh Ahz collection. I don’t know why it’s spelled “Ten.” The only thing I can think of is that “The Tin Man” might be protected?

I picked this up on the sale rack at Sally’s a while back. It’s a pretty silver with silver glitter.

Also, it’s proof that I do have those elusive thumbnails–Ha!
