OPI Rainbow Connection

Hi my lovelies! Today I reached 300 followers! It has been a wonderful 7 months blogging. I wish I was able to update my blog a little more often, but it's been really difficult with school. When I'm on my winter break next month I will definitely be updating it a lot more! I thank each and every one of you who take the time to stop by my blog and check out my nail art. It's nice to be able to share my obsession with all of you =] I will be having a giveaway (a new bottle of this polish will be included!) within the next few weeks so keep an eye out. Anyways, here's the first polish I used from OPI The Muppets Collection called Rainbow Connection. Application was a little difficult because the glitter is so chunky and the glitter would clump on other glitter, but the end result is worth the little extra effort! I used 2 layers of topcoat to smooth it out. Believe it or not, removal was really easy because my polish came off in whole chunks and I just kind of picked it off =P

O.P.I. Suzi Loves Cowboys and BM 203

I really wanted to do a Thanksgiving water marble last week, but the only brown brown that I own is a sorbet and it was a disaster =| It was also my birthday on Thanksgiving and I kept debating whether to do Thanksgiving or birthday nails so I just did something with brown LOL. Here I used O.P.I. Suzi Loves Cowboys and stamped using BM 203 in China Glaze Passion. After a few days I added one of Essie's new Luxeffects in As Gold as it Gets and it looked really cool, except I didn't make time to take pics. I really want to do a giveaway, but nursing school is practically drowning me right now so I think I have to wait until next month.

China Glaze Westside Warrior and Konad M78

Today's post is a mani I wore a couple weeks ago. It's a simple design, but I kind of like doing manis like these sometimes because it doesn't take long to think it up (I'm SO indecisive) and it's hard to mess up. For my base color I used China Glaze Westside Warrior and stamped using Konad M78 in Konad Princess Apple Green. I like it because it has a kind of marbled look to it!

November Haul

I haven't been to "nail polish heaven"  for couple months and that's a pretty long time in nail polish land because so many new polishes are always being released. Anyways, it basically means I bought a bunch of nail polish! I wanted more, but I'm not made of money so here's what I picked up:

China Glaze's 2011 Holiday "Let It Snow" Collection:

L to R: Velvet Bow, Winter Berry, Poinsetta, Ring in the Red

 L to R: Holly-Day, Glittering Garland, Blue Year's Eve,  Champagne Bubbles

L to R: Tinsel Town, Icicle, Snow Globe, Twinkle Lights

O.P.I.'s "The Muppets" Collection:

L to R: Warm & Fozzie, Designer... De Better, Pepe's Purple Passion

L to R: Wocka Wocka, Meep-Meep-Meep, Animal-istic

L to R: Divine Swine, Gettin' Miss Piggy With It, Excuse Moi

L to R: Rainbow Connection x2, Fresh Frog of Bel Air, Gone Gonzo

L to R: Zoya Kissy (from Zoya's Holiday 2011 Gems and Jewels Collection) and Color Club  Wild and Willing

I'm lucky the nail polish store I go to sells these for half of what you would pay anywhere else. The OPI were $4.25 each, China Glaze were $2.75 each, Zoya was $4, and Color Club was I think $2.50. I think I'm going to get more Zoya's from the Gems and Jewels Collection, but at the time I told myself no because I thought it would be overdoing it lol. As you can see, there are TWO of Rainbow Connection. Since it seems to be so popular (and GORGEOUS), I decided to grab an extra and since my birthday is coming up, I will have a giveaway for Rainbow Connection and announce it on my birthday! I can't wait until my winter break from nursing school next month so I can finally play with everything.
