Flowers :)!

I tried out the vintage flower design I have seen around the blogs and this is how it came out:

I used China Glaze For Audrey for the background color, Essie Wife Goes On for the red, a Stripe-Rite in light pink, and NYX Ink in green for the leaves.

I also stopped at WalMart and picked up these sets from Kiss: A stripper set that comes with some sticker rhinestones and tip guides, which is different from their other set that comes with their stencils (I've found that these don't work at all).  And nail art pens which I will try out and let you know how I like them soon :)

Thanks again for stopping by! Have a great day!

Trade Secret Sale!

So the other day I wandered into Trade Secret and found out that they will not be carrying Essie polishes anymore! So all of them were on sale! I paid at most $1.50 for a bottle :) I went crazy hehe..

So here's some pictures of what I got:

From left to right: It's In The Bag, Ballet Slippers, East Hampton Cottage, Starter Wife, Limo-Scene, Adore-A-Ball, Waltz, and Happily Ever After
And all of these were just $1.00!!

Also got: O.P.I. On The Same Paige, Escapades, Playa Del Platinum, Nailtiques Monte Carlo, Nailtiques Shanghai.  Those two came in a set on sale for $1.50! And I also picked up Sephora by O.P.I. Traffic-Stopper Copper for $9.50.

Sephora now carries their version of the crackle or shatter fad, its called Blasted. So I got all the colors: gold (exclusively at Sephora), silver, and black blasted. I've yet to try these, but I will soon :) and let you know how it goes.

Sephora also has another huge hexagonal glitter top coat called Only Gold For Me Top Coat (the left one) and I also got Wild About Shimmer (right) to try out.

These Essie were only $1.50 and you bet I bought 2 of each! There's millionails, billionails, quick-e drying drops, and shine-e polish refresher. I've yet to try these as well, but if any of you have let me know how you liked them :)!

And these were also at Trade Secret for just $0.50!! A callus treatment and CND's solar cuticle oil in mini sizes.

Finally, I wandered into Claire's and found glow in the dark nail polish! They also had a green one but it looked similar to the white one so I only got these 3 to try out.  So far, what I can say is that it does not stay right for long, the glow is very dim :( even after shining a bright flashlight on it!

So, hopefully I'll try to swatch all those similar nude colored Essies soon.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day :)!

First Post :)

Hello all! I have been so inspired by the all the wonderful blogs I've seen and wanted to start one also :). I hope you'll all enjoy it also.  I enjoy many girly things like makeup, skin care, and especially nail polish.  I don't know that much, but I will try my best to share my thoughts on such things.

For now I have this on my nails:

I decided to add a little more to my ring finger:

The blue is China Glaze Rainstorm, which is a really pretty blue with slightly darker small blue glitters.
This is a really sheer polish and I needed 4 coats :(

I hope you'll all join me in my adventure of polish and things :)!
