31 Day Challenge! Day 4- Green Nails Double Feature

Hi loves!!!

  Welcome to day Four of the challenge. Today's color is one of my favorites... GREEN!! I just love Green as a color in general. I'd say Green is my favorite color. It's calming to me and reminds me of the outdoors.  I kept today's look simple but I really like how it turned out. I'm no dotting wiz but practice makes perfect, right?
 So this was my first shot at the Ombre mani and I really like the look. I had such a hard time choosing my Five colors. The transition between Greens isn't exactly smooth but I do like how they all look together. I kept things simple by just doing some cute dotting. I smudged my pinkie dots a little but I was too lazy to go back and fix it :( lol.


Here is a pic of my base colors. From Thumb to Pinkie: Bettina #194, O.P.I Jade is the New Black, Misa Dirty, Sexy Money, O.P.I Mermaid's Tears and China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint. All were Two coats.

And just for reference here is a pic of the colors :D.

 Now for a bonus look. This is Nicole By O.P.I Green Up Your Act! with accent nails in O.P.I Spark du Triomph. I had already been wearing this for a few days before I took pics which is why it looks a little crappy but this is such a good combo.
Don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Green nails!

Tomorrow will be a true Challenge.. How am I supposed to pick a Blue polish!!? Hahah I have sooooo many Blues!

Misa Dirty, Sexy Money

Hey hey hey,

  Today I wanted to revisit one of my favorite Green shades. This one is really interesteting and unique. It's Misa's Dirty, Sexy Money. I had only worn this as a swatch and for some reason as much as I loved it I had not found my way back to it. Well, I am so glad I did because this reminded me that I need to look into adding some more Misa polishes to my collection. This is my one and only Misa pretty.
For this one I used this little flower stamp from plate BM06. As my stamping colors I used CG Jolly Holly and O.P.I  Brisbane Bronze. I really love this look. It is delicate and Springy and easy to replicate.

Here is a swatch of Dirty, Sexy Money. A dusty, Jade Green with an amazing formula. I could have done with one coat but I used two to give my nails a glassy look. This pic was taken pre top-coat.
I love this color and I love the stamping! Sometimes the simplest manis are the prettiest ones. 

Thanks for stopping by, also which Misas do you guys say I should have?

Untrieds Spam: Part 2

Hello :)!

  Here is the last Five polishes I had yet to swatch! It is official! They have all been worn! That doesn't mean I've blogged about every color I own but I have worn all 121 of them!






  Digital is probably the closest I'll ever come to China Glaze's "BFF" and that is A- Ok. This color is absolutely beautiful. The holo effect is very good, more so scattered finish than linear but just stunning! I love that it is a nice vibrant shade of Pink so you can still tell it is Pink and it does not become washed out by the intense sparkle in this polish.




Hi- Res... Let's see...Um Purple holo on my nails? All is well in this crazy world! Do you see all that sparkle?!!  How beautiful is this? I can't wait to wear these again. I'm so happy I found these Milanis. The formula is amazing on both of these colors, soo smooth and easy to apply. Both of these holos required Three coats for full opacity. I have a feeling these are mind blowing when layered.


Re- Fresh Mint is the cutest light pastel mint Green. The formula for this polish is insanel well pigmented. I was tempted to leave it at one coat but I ended up doing Two coats instead. This color is beautiful and soothing to look at and I'm so glad this is a part of my collection.

Rich and Famous is an awesome Barbie Pink creme. What's not to love? I have noticed a lot of bloggers have no love for Pink :(. I love Pink it makes me happy and I love how it looks on me. For this mani I used Two coats of color and the formula is a dream to work with.

Dirty, Sexy Money is the One and only Misa polish I own and I am in love. The formula amazing, almost thin but with amazing pigmentation. This is so easy to apply and it dries very shiny. I absolutely love this shade of Green, It's a dusty light olive toned Green. I really, really love this color!

Thanks for Reading :)
