If this is what Brains look like I'd totally become a Zombie. Okay not really! So one of my favorite things about this polish is the pretty pink/purple shimmer the grey has in the bottle. However it doesn't translate to the nail well and looking back at my pictures it's hard to see it in the bottles. I honestly was a bit mixed on this one. I like it in the bottle but once on the nail I wasn't loving it so much.. Perhaps grey is a color that just doesn't do it for me. I did like how it was a nice instant jelly sandwich without any effort. Next time around I'd pass on this one because it's too close in the family of Revlon's Whimsical and DL's Up in the Air (which are easier to come across). It's still a really stunning beauty and I had fun wearing "brain matter" on my nails!

What happens when you have a manicure and you get bored of it but you don't have the energy to completely remove it and start fresh.... you grab a glitter and take the manicure to the next level! So I was meeting up with a friend and I couldn't have just plan boring green nails (opi jade is the new black) so in an attempt to have more exciting nails I slathered NYX Enchanted Forest. I didn't realize this polish had big glitter hex pieces in it till after i did several nails, once I got a giant hex piece I went fishing for more so each nail had at least one hex in it. I picked up this beauty at a beauty supply place while in Augusta GA for a buck! Totally worth the money. Plus it's not one of those stinky burn your eye balls with the fumes polish that you usually see for a buck. If you ever have a chance to get some NYX polishes do it because they are totally worth it. If I ever go back to Augusta I'm totally gonna get more.

This was my super simple St. Patrick's Day Manicure. I've been wanting to wear this color for a while but like many other polishes in my collection I tend to forget about them. So get this I already made my mind up that I was gong to wear this and then I had the hardest time finding it in my stash. I do have 95% of my collection organized by color and silly me forgot that I had one drawer where I keep my overflow of greens and blues together and I completely forgot to look in there since the label off the drawer fell off. I gotta say I totally did a happy dance when I finally found it. This color was perfect to celebrate St. Patty's with. It dries a touch darker than it is in the bottle. Nothing bad to say about this. Great formula great color.
Happy First Day of Spring!

Remember back in December when I did my first major Nail Chop? Well right after I did that chop I painted my nails with Snow Angel and for some reason I sat on these pictures till now. Yah I know I know bad blogger, hah seems to be a common theme for me lately... (ps have you noticed how this is my 3rd post in a row?!!!!)) If I'm not mistaken I painted this over Manglaze Mayo. I have heard a lot of people layering Snow Angel over Essie's Marshmallow and I've tested that combo but I liked Mayo better. It's an interesting polish and only reason I got it was because well I didn't have any white glitters like it. It's a shame how difficult Lynnderella polish have become to buy and with that said If I had a do over I'd buy some other colorful Lynnderella Polish. I hope the drama over these polishes ends so we can all get them on our nails!

Stamping is something I don't do a lot of. Not sure why since usually when I do take the time to do it I get pretty good results. I did this over the Glitter Gal Frappe and the Fuchsia Flare was an excellent color to use over Frappe. This delicate flower pattern was the perfect combo for the delicate Frappe.

So Yes I've been totally MIA. I still think about the blog and how I should be updating more but it gets put on the back burner since I've been hardcore planning and designing the kitchen in our new house. It is totally gutted and everything is planned, all appliances have been purchased and I can't wait to be able to share the progress on the kitchen once something actually starts happening! I've decided to create the backsplash and do some kind of crazy mosaic. Still not sure what I'll do but just know that most of my time is spent looking up kitchen stuff. I've finally figured out how useful pinterest can be in saving my kitchen ideas in one place!
So about this nail polish... Glitter Gal Frappe was honestly not a big favorite of mine at first. It took 4 coats and well it wasn't quite as opaque as I'd like it to be. But I have to admit it did grow on me. It's a very delicate holo and I would recommend layering it over a similar color. The color is somewhere between a light pink and a light lavender.
