My sweetie pie’s first manicure!

Kaley loves playing with all my nail polish bottles and I have been doing her toes for a long time. I usually do them while she is napping and she just wakes up with painted toenails!

I think she got so into it that she decided she could even sit still and be patient while waiting for it to dry. So I did her toes and her nails today for the first time.

She picked s-he stylezone 427, a pink holo! 🙂

Zoya – Louise + Catrice – Have An Ice Day

I recently got Louise and wow, it is just like painting your nails with dark chocolate. It literally looks edible!
(forgive the dry cuticles, ugh!)

Then the lovely Gemma sent me Have An Ice Day from her stash and I had to wear it immediately over Louise! Its a really fine-particle holo top coat. Kind of makes whatever color you wear under it look like it just came as a holo polish!

I might as well share the news now that I’m half way through this… I’m pregnant! 20 weeks now, and I get to find out if its a boy or a girl on Wednesday. 🙂 That’s why I’ve been painting my nails less… not supposed to breathe the fumes and all. I feel pretty safe with Zoya though.

Color Club Revvvolution over Zoya Lo

I saw the Vivid Lacquer stamping plates and had to get some!

This image is from VL 005. Its the famous Lorem ipsum quote block in really pretty font!

It seems like everytime I wear Zoya Lo, I love the color but really want to stamp a gray or black over it. Color Club Revvvolution is black holo that stamps nicely.

Zoya – Kissy

I was bummed that the Orly After Party just looked plain black most of the time, so I added 2 layers of Kissy!

I had never tried this one, and I was *so* much more impressed with it than I ever thought I’d be. I thought the holo rectangular strips would end up being like little strands of tinsel on your nail, but it is actually like each strip is a brightly glowing rainbow!

It sounds ridiculous, but you’d have to see it. Especially since we’ve been replacing our lights in the house with LED lights, every time those would catch my nails, I’d be staring at the rainbows.

What do you get when you take Orly Rock Solid and pour in a bunch of China Glaze Hawaiian Punch, NYX Maroon, and Spoiled Cougar Attack?

Isn’t it pretty? When I got Rock Solid, I was bummed that it was just gray and not brown at all, so I thought I’d make it burgundy with some NYX Maroon. Then it was too purple and I wanted it a little pinker, so I added the China Glaze Hawaiian Punch. Then I remembered I wanted brown in the first place and dumped the Spoiled Cougar Attack in. haha!

Now I have a full bottle of this awesomeness!
