Zoya Summer Sunset Gradient Nail Art


 When I got the latest Summer Zoya Pixie Dust collection these four colors just jumped out at me and begged to be put together in one manicure. I usually do not have much luck when it comes to gradient manicures however the textured polishes are super forgiving and made it easy for me to create a gradient effect.  Even though I'm not a warm colored person, yellow and orange are some of my least favorite colors, this manicure was just super hot and I loved it! Here is the order I applied the polishes: Solange, Beatrix, Destiny and Miranda. This was also the last manicure I had before I did a major nail chop... I miss the talons but a change is always good!

Gonna keep it short since I have to go book my flight and hotel for my upcoming trip to Las Vegas!!! I struggled with this but I decided I just had to make it out to the Cosmoprof show this year. With all the house renovations I've been doing it wasn't really an expense I wanted to take on but this girl needs a break and what better way to reward myself than with a little trip to Vegas?? :D

Lumina Lacquer Grape Granita

I know my posts lately have been super sparse. I'm coming to the conclusion that I'm pretty much buried under a pile of photos that need to be edited and my poor camera is out of memory since I have so many pictures on there.  The only way to fix this problem is to start trying to post and slowly dig my way out of this mess i've thrown myself into... I know I know I sound like a broken record.. heheh so in happy news the house has a complete new roof on it!!! I will share pictures soon!! I never knew how heavy a bag of shingles is till this past weekend!!! luckily I did not break my back or any nails!!

So this is combo I put together what seems like ages ago. I layered Grape Granita over a black with a side sweep of Models Own Indian Ocean. I have to say the indian ocean made this manicure just pop for me. I love the glitter but over the indian ocean it just turned into wow. If you've followed me for a while then you know I love Lumina Lacquer, I did not have any problems with this polish , I'm a purple fan and this glitter bomb did not disappoint!

Animal Print Nail Art Tutorial Video: Leopard Spots


So the worst thing about taking a break for so long is I can't remember what all I've posted and what I haven't posted... At least I can look back through the blog and see but it just seems like so much work to actually look through my blog.... haha I know I'm being so bloglazy lately.. :P Here's another tutorial video I did for the Allure contest I was part of... yes I know It's only taken me forever to post this but it's still pretty and worth a look. This was the second time I've ever worn leopard prints and I gotta say these colors just went so well together and even though animal prints aren't for me, I loved it. After a day or so I threw on Zoya Katherine and man it was further transformed!! 
Enjoy the Video!

Painted Sabotage Angel Wings


Ever know you should do something but you're too afraid(lazy, tired) to just take the dive to do it? well I have to admit i'm upset at myself for being gone for a full month.  Working on the house has been a lot of work and it's keeping me busy.  I'm sorry that the site is on the back burner for now. But I admit since my break I have been getting to bed before midnight and instead of searching for polish to buy i've been looking at everything from hot water heaters to blinds.... haha not fun! My poor nails are so upset with me they went from getting painted daily , even twice a day to  once a week now. I 'm ashamed to show my face around here I promise to get my act together soon. We almost have everything painted in the house, soon there won't be much left for me to do but pack my junk up and move in but realistically we're 2-3 months away from that.  I  am happy to see a good bit of activity on the site even after being gone for a month so I want to thank you guys for still stopping by. You have no idea how much I miss you guys! My body has been forcing me to take this break but I don't think it will be for much longer, I've got a few more loose ends to tie up in the house so I will slowly be getting my tips wet again and I thank you guys for being so understanding!

The polish... being that I wore this what seems like months ago my memory is not the best... however This is one that's not easily forgotten. It's a little on the sheer side and at first impression I didn't think I would like it but once I built it up 4-5 coats I had no idea it would look so good! Since I wore this Painted Sabotage has changed the formula so that it's not as sheer. (love it when a brand listens to suggestions!!) So it will be more opaque and take less coats!  I 'm a sucker for iridescent glitter, mix that with a light purple oh man that's the sweet spot!! Every Painted Sabotage polish I've worn has been amazing if you haven't checked out the brand yet , you're missing out!

Yell at me if I a week passes and I haven't reappeared :)!!!
