China Glaze Shocking Pink

Hello guys,

  I have some BRIGHT nails for you today. I have yet another first for me and it was ... An experience...  To say the least

China Glaze- Neon Shocking Pink
Indoors w/o Flash. Pretty right?
  So as I expected the application of this color was a bit of a pain in the behind. The first two coats were a streaky nightmare but once I added a third coat it magically evened it self out and it looked great! Once I added a coat of Scehe Vite it looked even better. In the picture above the color looks quite tame, trust me these are some bright neon pink nails right now.

Outdoors w/ Natural Sunlight & the addition of some Fauxnad
 I took some pics in natural sunlight but even then the color isn't photographing quite right. This is like Day- Glo pink guys. It's definitely an edgy fun color. If you can get over the application this is a fun color to wear.

Until My next post

Update on Nails

Lat post for the day,

  Exactly one week ago I broke some nails painfully short and I decided to try a nail hardener by L.A Girl. Here are some pictures of the progress.

 There has been a decent amount of growth, what I'm happier about is that there has been no flaking of my nails. I have also noticed that my nails are feeling a lot less thin. 

So that is my one week update. I can't wait for my nails to be even and pretty again :)

Until tomorrow :)

All Dolled Up

Hello again :).

  This is my second post today but these are really my nails from yesterday (August 29th, 2010). My husband and I went out to a GREAT dinner last night at a really high end steakhouse. I had never been to such an upscale kind of place... I decided to wear a gorgeous black lace dress so naturally I had to dress up my nails for the occasion. I used several Konad designs layered over each other to create a lacy effect.

China Glaze Peachy Keen

Hello guys :)

  These are my August 28th Nails. I didn't have a chance to post since my modem decided that it needed a nap so I was internetless for most of Saturday. So for the NOTD for Saturday I swatched another new color for me, here is a pic....

China Glaze - Peachy Keen
Up & Away Collection
Indoors w/o  flash
Direct Sunlight w/o flash.
  This is such a fun color. It's kinda neutral, but not really. It is like an edgy neutral... Personally I preffer bolder colors, but every girl needs a neutral color so this is really perfect for me because I don't love beige tones againts my skin. The application was easy and even, completely opaque in two coats. As always it was finished off with a coat of Seche Vite.
 I decided to add some Konad designs to my nails after I painted them and this is what I came up with...
Not terribly original, but cute non the less :).

Until my next post,
