Essie Sugar Daddy & Konad M19 French Mani

Hey beauties! Today I have my first successful French mani! I don't know how many times I've tried to use Konad M19 with the French tips, but I have failed every single time. I tried something different this time around. I used binder hole reinforcements and then stamped and it worked like a charm! I used Essie Sugar Daddy and stamped using Konad M19 in Konad White. I like how clean and simple these look!

Also, from now on I'll be using new watermarks on my photos (feedback is welcome). Unfortunately one of the photos I used to review a product for Born Pretty Store had my watermark blurred out and used on their site. I have contacted them and my photo has been removed, but stealing photos is no longer limited to young kids on Instagram and I have to be much more careful from now on.

My Vampire is Hotter than Warsaw

Happy Friday! Lol I had trouble coming up with a title for today's post. Today I have a quick mani I did while studying so my nail art is minimal. I used 3 colors I got from the OPI Euro Centrale Collection. I used OPI My Vampire is Buff, OPI My Paprika is Hotter than Yours, and OPI I Saw... U Saw... We Saw... Warsaw. I can't wait to play more with this collection!

OPI Pink Friday & OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons

Hey loves! Quick post today. This mani is from 3 weeks ago when school started. I used OPI Pink Friday and OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons. I added some 4mm gold square studs. They're girly with an attitude! In case anyone was wondering, the studs are from Born Pretty Store.

OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls & Bundle Monster BM 317

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Here's the 3rd mani I did for Valentine's Day. I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and stamped using BM 317 in Konad Red. The glitter is China Glaze Love Marilyn. I did all 3 of my vday nails a few weeks ago and my nails today are just nude. Blah! Oh well, I got an awesome gift from my hubby today--tons of nail polish! What is everyone wearing on their nails today?

Here's only part of my Valentine's Day gift from my hubby. Isn't he the best?! I got OPI's Euro Centrale Collection, OPI's Disney Oz the Great and Powerful Collection, Color Club's Halo Hues 2013 Collection, a couple of China Glaze's Biz n Pieces polishes, and Essie Sugar Daddy. I'm a happy nail polish addict today! =]

Hey lacquerheads! Here's the second Valentine's themed mani I did and it's my favorite of the 3. I used China Glaze Surreal Appeal and stamped using Cheeky CH53 in Konad White. The glitter is China Glaze Glistening Snow. Aren't they so adorable?! I entered these into Orly's From the Heart contest on Facebook so if you ladies can vote for me here that would be awesome! My entry is called "Love Letter" and it's under Natalie Niu. Thanks ahead of time!

China Glaze With Love & MASH 39

Happy Friday! I did 3 Valentine's Day themed manicures a couple weeks ago before school started--and I'm glad I did because otherwise I wouldn't have time to do any. Here's the first one. I used China Glaze With Love and stamped using MASH 39 in Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Silver Sweep. For the glitter gradient I used Essie Set in Stones.

49ers Watermarble

Hey ladies! I was so busy with yesterday's festivities that I didn't get a chance to post my mani I wore for the Superbowl. I did a quick water marble using forty niner colors. I used China Glaze With Love, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Golden-I, and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. We didn't win, but I'm so proud we had a great season and made it to the Superbowl!
