Sonoma Nail Art — Sincerest Pumpkin Patch

So I guess I hand't realized how long it had been since the last time I posted. >.> My intention was to post a few weeks ago but life and time just flies by and gets in the way!

Today we have an oldie but a goodie in spirit of Halloween coming up. It's Sonoma Nail Art's Sincerest Pumpkin Patch (from 2012, I think). This polish is a glitter packed shimmery green transparent jelly base. There are multiple sizes and colors of glitter - green, silver, orange, red.

I layered this on top of a nice green creme Butter London polish I found at Marshall's because it's basically a one-coater. I wanted to be able to make a couple of layers of Sincerest Pumpkin Patch because it was the real star of this manicure.

Photos were actually taken a couple of days after I did this mani. I loved it and wore it until it cracked off of my nails (I'm a horrible nail care person). 

Anyway, I think I have at least one more Halloween inspired manicure to post before next weekend so I will definitely try to get to that!

Until next time.

Butter London — Wallis

Decided to redo my nails and am being hopeful that fall will come around sooner rather than later (living in Louisiana that's really not likely). 

So today we have Butter London's Wallis. Wallis is a gorgeous golden olive green shimmer. Two coats to full coverage but there was a bit of patchiness in some places that thankfully isn't noticeable.

I do wish my nails would grow and when I put topcoat on it wouldn't cause shrinkage but no matter what I use it happens, so oh well.

Hope you guys are good!

Dollish Polish — Toad-ally Awesome

Very long time no update.

Just decided to pop in here because I actually painted my nails today. After getting a manicure while on vacation, my polish lasted a whole 2 days so I decided I wanted to get rid of it and do a fun mani!

This is an oldie but a goodie. Dollish Polish Toad-ally Awesome is a jam packed glitter in a clear base. There is large and small white glitter, square blue glitter, gold glitter, red glitter, and micro blue glitter. This is from her 2012 Super Mario Bros. collection.

The glitter has settled so I had a little issue trying to fish out the bigger glitter, otherwise this goes on awesome. I used Toad-ally Awesome over an unlabeled Color Club blue. Two thin coats and I had perfect coverage.

L-R: Toad-ally Awesome by Dollish Polish, Unnamed Color Club blue.

Life Update & OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection

So, it's been a while. :) Understatement of the universe. I don't think I will be posting a ton but I think I want to start doing my nails again. Here's a little update on my life.

I got married.

We have a little family.
L-R: P (stepdaughter), hubby G, Mishka, and I.

I've become a crazy dog person. 
We do dog park meets with huskies and other northern breeds.

So needless to say my life is a little hectic. My nails are crap and I barely take care of them let alone have time to do some of the fun manicures I used to.

But despite everything the new Fifty Shades of Gray OPI collection came out and I HAD to have it despite my personal opinions on the novel and movie.

Love the grays, so I did a little manicure with Shine for Me (accent) and Embrace the Gray. Even though I actually bought the mini set, the quality is on par for OPI. Both went on smoothly with only 2 coats to full coverage.

So I hope to post a little. I already have 2 other manicures planned. I just know I won't be as active as I once was. Having a life and a family takes up a lot of my time, which I'm happy to spend time with them rather than spend so much time online.

Hope everyone is well. :)
