China Glaze - OMG

Usually when I am in a hurry, I end up with bubbles. Not with this polish. I applied two coats with no wait time and Seche Vite for the top coat. No issues whatsoever. This is a beautiful silver holograpic, wish you could see this IRL. I can't stop looking at my nails, although in the sun I may go blind!!
China Glaze released 12 colors in this Holograpic collection. I think I may have to invest in a few more!

Konad Nail Art

After seeing so many cute designs out there, I decided to give this a try! I have to admit, it is harder than I thought it would be. I mean, with some of the designs you have to be completely centered length and width. For me, this is hard to do. I found a random pattern, like the one posted is much easier. (I loose patience!)
My base polish is Finger Paints - Mystery Muse

OPI & China Glaze Summer 09

I received my order today and could not make up my mind which polish to use. So, I thought I would swatch them and decide then. Well, I still don't know! Anyway, if you are looking for a good place to buy online, try They usually have the newest releases available and they have great prices!

I had no issues with any of these polishes. All had complete coverage in 2 coats and have a nice glossy finish. Though I always use Seche Vite top coat on my nails, these pics are without it.

From index to pinky:

China Glaze - Laced Up, China Glaze - Sneaker Head, OPI - No Room For The Blues, OPI - A Grape Fit. The China Glaze polishes are right on with the pic. The OPI blue is a little darker and more of a turquoise, the purple is less blue. My camera has trouble with blues/purples, sorry!

Are any of these calling your name?

OPI Re-released Shades

For summer 2009 OPI has re-released some of their most popular shades. I have 2 swatches of them.

First - Venus di Violet - From the Collezion Italiana 2001. I like this one a lot. A beautiful pink/lilac shade with a pearlized finish.
Second - Cancun Fiesta - From their original 1989 collection. Bright pink with blue undertones, great for a pedi!

Essie The North Fork Collection - Sag Harbor

Happy Mother's Day!

This has been a favorite for many of us nail polish enthusiasts. A pretty shade of blue for Spring.


Welcome to my blog! I am addicted to nail polish and thought I would share some of my favorite colors. My most recent purchase is MAC Love & Friendship. I love this lavender shade! This is 3 coats + topcoat.
