OPI Suzi's Hungary Again & OPI

Happy Spring Break! Geeze I felt like I would never make it to spring break. My nails have been naked for 2 weeks, yes, very sad lol. Anyways here's a quick mani I did a couple weeks ago and I really loved the color combination. I did a reverse glitter gradient using OPI Suzi's Hungary Again and OPI I don't think I do this method well, but I actually think these came out pretty good. I guess practice does really make perfect =]

China Glaze Fade Into Hue & Cheeky CH51

Hey loves! Today I have a mani using 3 of my new polishes. Don't you just love when you make a small dent in your "untrieds" list? I'm pretty sure my list is longer than everyone else's, but 3 is better than none.  I used a base of China Glaze Fade Into Hue and stamped using Cheeky CH51 in Color Club Beyond. The glitter is China Glaze Glitz 'N Pieces. I wasn't crazy about this color on me, but with school keeping me so busy, I don't have time to go back and redo stuff like I want to. What do you ladies do when you don't like a color on you: keep going or redo your mani?

St. Paddy's Watermarble

Goodmorning readers! I just spend a long time trying to get my blogger page to look normal. I think there was an update and now everything looks out of whack! Did anyone else notice this happen to their blog as well? Oh well, I will try to figure it out later. Today I have a green and orange watermarble for St. Patrick's Day that is coming up in a few days. I used a base of China Glaze Def Defying and then marbled with China Glaze Def Defying, China Glaze Starboard, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed, and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Green With Envy. I really like how these came out. When I have a successful watermarble, it makes me want to do another one right away!

Born Pretty Store 2mm Silver Square Studs Review

Hey beauties! Today I have 2 mm silver square studs from Born Pretty Store to review. I used OPI...Eurso Euro as a base and added 3 studs on each nail. I applied them using clear polish and topped them with Seche Vite. What I really liked about these is that they are easier to lay flat on the nail as compared to the 4mm studs I also reviewed here. They even laid flat when I placed them diagonally. With the 4mm ones, they did not lie completely flat diagonally, especially because my nails are quite curved. Use these studs to add some attitude to your nails when you don't feel like doing any nail art!


You can purchase a pack of these 2mm silver square studs here on Born Pretty Store for $5.73. They offer free worldwide shipping on all orders. Use my code "NV7X31" for 10% off your entire order.

China Glaze Hanging in the Balance & Konad Q1

Hey my polished pretties! Quick post today. Here's a quick mani I did using a couple of my China Glaze Cirque du Soleil polishes. I have the whole collection and barely used any of them yet. I used China Glaze Hanging in the Balance and stamped using Konad Q1 in Konad White. The glitter is China Glaze It's a Trapeze. I used 2 coats over one coat of a white creme because I didn't want it to end up being too chunky. Also here's what my nails look like as nubs! I start med surg clinicals this week again and that means shorties for the next couple months.

Holo Zebra Print

Happy Friday! I have a cool holo zebra print today. I did the zebra print for a special meaning. I quit my job last week after working there for 5 years and some months and the first Konadicure I ever wore to work was a straight black and white zebra print. I decided on my last day I should wear something special even though no one knew what it meant except me LOL. I used China Glaze Liquid Leather and stamped using Konad M57 in Color Club Miss Bliss, Eternal Beauty, and Over the Moon. Index is Eternal Beauty and pinky is Over the Moon. The Color Club polishes I used are both from the new 2013 Halo Hues--I really love them!
