But in all seriousness.  For realsies.  I've been away from the nail world for about 6 months.  I haven't touched my blog or looked at other people's nail blogs at all.  And I've barely purchased any nail polish.     I don't know the current collections that are out or the popular colors.  I've been DEAD to the nail blogosphere.  But I've found inspiration.  And I'm BACK.

So.  I plan on changing the layout, playing around with colors, etc etc etc.  I did my nails for New Years Eve today so I'll post that tomorrow hopefully.  Maybe tonight if I feel ambitious.  :D

For Christmas I received some Ciaté and Butter London nail polish, which I've never had before and I'm in love!  So expect stuff, guys!

Green and Orange Tips!

Hello, Everyone!  I did these nails in February... I think?  Orange and Green are my school colors!  Woohoo for school spirit!  And woohoo for the semester almost being over.  

I used China Glaze "Life Preserver" for the orange and Essie "Going Incognito" for the green.

I got the straight, clean lines by using tape.  Simple. :)  And in case you didn't already know, Zoya is doing their Earth Day Promo again.  New to the nail world and don't know what that is?  Check out my post from yesterday. :)

Purple with Gold Glitter Triangles~

Hello, Everyone!  Today's manicure I used tape to make the triangles.  And the pictures are FAR from color-accurate.  Zoya Kieko is purple, strictly purple.  The pictures make it look pink-ish.  I used 2 coats of China Glaze Diva Bride as a base color to make the nails look clean.  Enjoy!

Products Used:
  • Seche Vite Base Coat
  • China Glaze Diva Bride
  • Zoya Kieko
  • China Glaze Blondie Bombshell
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Usually I'll randomly babble down here, but I have nothing to say except to enjoy your day~

Hello, Everyone!  Today's design is from nailside and here is her tutorial post for this simple, but fun design.  After seeing her post, I knew I had to try it.  So I did. :P

I was already wearing Glitter Gal's Blue 3D/Holo.  So then I just added white and black. :)

Products used:

  • Seche Vite Base Coat
  • Glitter Gal Blue 3D/Holo
  • Zoya Snow White
  • China Glaze Liquid Leather

So now I really want to use a bunch of different color combinations.

Blue Holo Beautifulness! Glitter GAL!

Hello, Everyone!  This is no official review because I'm not in the mood to be formal.  But I'm wearing an amazing nail polish color today and I need to share it with the world!  Holographic nail polish FTW.

It's just.. it's just... so amazing.  I could rave about this forever.  It's so cool!  Really futuristic looking!  I got it online at Llarowe.  She sells a bunch of out-of-country nail polishes.  Check it out!

Zoya: Yasmeen + some Clarins 230

Hello, Everyone!  Today's color is Zoya's Yasmeen. I might as well just get it out that this is my all-time favorite color that I own.

And also, I don't know if people know this, but it looks A LOT like Clarins 230, but without the multi-chrome, changing colors.  I own Clarins 230, so I can say this on good account.  Yasmeen  looks like Clarins 230 layered over purple.  Both colors have a purple base but with internal pink shimmer that glows within.  It is beautiful!  And I have a comparison photo at the bottom of the post. :)

  • Coats: 2 easy, beautiful, amazing coats
  • Finish:  Purple base with internal pink shimmer
  • Where:
  • Wear:  5 DAYS, no chips yet.
  • Cost:  $8.00.  
  • Staining:  No stains!  
  • Application:  Easy!
  • Dry time: Pretty fast.
  • Removal:  Easy to remove!
*This color is perfect and I have absolutely no complaints. :D

Clarins 230 (left) and Yasmeen (right)

They're similar, right?  Or am I crazy?  Well, I think they look similar.  Maybe it's my love for Yasmeen and refusal to say anything bad about it that prevents me from seeing the truth?

One more picture?  One more picture.

Moral of the story:
I love Yasmeen.  And so should you.
