My First Glitter Gradient Mani ^_^

Hey guys! I haven't felt very good at all today and somebody suggested glitter to help cheer me up :) It has helped a little, but still not feeling that well I just want to go to bed lol but it is only 7pm!
Today i used another one of my new Barielle's, Slate of Affairs. And Then I sponged on Deborah Lippmann's Today was a fairytale, and voilĂ  :D Let me know what you think! It was hard to get decent pictures because the glitter I guess so I hope these will do!

Barielle Elle's Spell Swatches!

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't posted too much lately : ( No excuse really just been hanging around on my new comfy couch and mostly doing nothing. But I did get my Barielle order that I placed on Tuesday already! They were on sale + I used a 15% off code and I got 10 polishes for $25.50, they are normally $8 each!! These are my first ones but I have heard great things form their brand! This is Elle's Spell, I love it! I am a huge fan of polishes with flakies! & Jelly based polishes and this is both! Takes a few coats but it is so pretty!

Wet n Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer + Chg Electric Lilac

Hey guys! This will be a short post because I am absolutely exhausted! I cleaned a TON today because our new sectional & dining table will get here finally :D I want it to look nice (well as nice as it can lol) SOO excited! Me and the hubs haven't ever even had a dining table at all LOL and our couch atm is so broken, the springs underneath are like unattached and it is not comfy at all! I will have to post pictures :) But anywhoo Today I painted my Nails with WnW Buffy the Violet Slayer, my hubby picked it for me when I asked him what color to paint them earlier before we went to see the new POTC movie! (I am obsessed with Johnny Depp!) :) I have two sets of pictures because it randomly came out blue sometimes and then other times very purple.. It looks more purple than blue int he bottle to me but I think it depends on the light and it kind of switches or something, either way I like it! The swatches of it without Chg Electric Lilac are not very neat I painted them way too fast before the other coat was all the way dry but we had a lot to do today! Without further ado lol here are pictures :) Nect time i use Electric Lilac I am putting it over Finger Paints Hue Rang? I think it will be gorgeous!

Silver, Black & White Leopard print Mani

Last night I stamped my nails with BM-221 I decided on Leopard print! I painted my nails with Finger Paints-Paper Mache (white creme finish) And stamped over that with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Silver Sweep.. lol then I stamped once more with the same image on the plate but I used Konad black stamping polish. The design smudged some (I use Seche Vite no idea why it smudges sometimes : /) But I am not pro at stamping yet but I can tell I am improving! I also painted over SV with Essie's Matte about you to see how it would look matte as well  Hope you all enjoy, even with the smudging I like this more than I thought I would! Nowhere near perfect but I think it is cute. Have a awesome day! *Oh and sorry I know I didn't do very well on the clean up but I had to take pictures and post this before Sky woke from her nap!)
With SV topcoat
:( My poor pinky nail keeps breaking! It is the weakest the rest are pretty tough I don't get it!

 Hey everybody! I miss you <3 lol I'm sorry I haven't been online as much I hope you all understand! First off if you haven't already, enter my first blog giveaway [RIGHT HERE] :) Or even if you did please go check if your comment is still there! When blogger went all wonky and my posts disappeared then reappeared some of the comments were missing :( 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I had a pretty great time with Amber from Rainbows and Sparkles blog! Me and my hubby drove down to her house and spent the weekend there! We bought tons of polish (I still need to post my haul D:) And went to Sally's, Ulta, Charming Charlie's (we both got new purses there!), and a BUNCH of other places! lol She popped my Ulta cherry! I have ordered online before but it was my first time in one! Hopefully we can hang out again soon sometime :) She is only a hour away :D

Off to my nails today, well from yesterday too but the sun wasn't out at all so I waited to take pictures outside today :) I have on Orly's Galaxy Girl! I love it, it is so beautiful in the sun! I have more coats on than you need, but that is because after I painted them I got Amber to file my nails (Yeah I should have thought to ask before hehe) But I'm not so great at making mine squared and now they look so pretty <3 But I think this is 4 coats because of that, I normally do 2 coats with most polishes but I liked this one with three.

I will try to post my haul soon! <3 you guys! Spread the word about my giveaway please! I will be throwing in more Born Pretty plates since my order FINALLY got here!! You have until the 20th to enter!!!

My DL's Came!! Red Ruby Slipper's Swatch!!

Okay wow I am in love with these <3!! I ordered these for myself for Mother's Day, Seeing as the hubby really didn't have the time to get me something because he had just gotten home! I can't wait to try them all!!
This will be a quick post since I just did the giveaway one and I need to go eat before it gets cold, then get ready for my appointment and everything but here is the Deborah Lippmann Haul I got (haha and yes 4 is considered a haul to me with how much these $$!!)

I got Today was A Fairytale, Ruby Red Slippers, Across the Universe, & Bad Romance!
They are all so amazingly gorgeous! You can even do one coat with them (ONE coat with a glitter polish?!) I honestly did two but only because I messed up where my cuticles are, I did 2 thin ones. This is without a topcoat, but I added a topcoat after so it felt smooth.

DL Ruby Red Slippers, No topcoat.

My Hubby is HOME!!! & China Glaze Caribbean Temptation

Well as the title says my hubby has returned home from his 12 months deployment! So I probably won't be blogging tons but I will still be making a effort to! The giveaway will be soon I just have one more package I am waiting on! I decided that this giveaway won't be very big since I am close to 100 so if you get me to 100 I will have a much bigger one!

Here is a mani I did a few weeks ago, Since I haven't had too much time lately <3 It is China Glaze's Caribbean Temptation, I water marbled the ring finger with ChG Coconut Kiss & ChG Sexy in the City, the color is off thought because it was over a light pink :)

Waiting on my hubby to get home! He had to go to work today, and then to a speech with President Obama and the VP also :)
