OPI – The World Is Not Enough

This one ended up being too light for my skin tone, but I loved the mix of taupe, pink and pewter that you can find in this polish!

I preferred it over black! On my ring finger, you can see it over black in this swatch. The hints of pink really pop out!

Jamberry – City Lights

Okay, these Jamberry wraps had me intimidated but it was actually so easy and took less time than a regular session of me painting my nails… plus zero dry time on the wraps really helped since I have a new baby!

This one is City Lights!

They lasted and lasted… after the 2 week mark I just wanted them off for a change but they probably would have gone another week!

Here they were after 2 weeks:

If you’d like to try them, all you need is a blow dryer to seal the wrap, a file to file the end off, and scissors to trim the wraps.

You can use one sheet for 2 mainicures and pedicures! One manicure left so many strips for later on:

You can buy them here!

They sell 8-free polishes too!

Essie – Sheers To You – Treat Love & Color

Sorry about the lack of editing here, I have a newborn at home! 🙂 Best excuse ever!

Anyway, I wanted to try this treatment line for the longest time but kept putting it off. Finally, a CVS coupon plus a waiting period for my prescription led to me buying one of these!

Sheers To You looked pretty because of the pink shimmer but I couldn’t find any swatches… so here are some swatches! There must be some available online in case you want to see it too!

Not too much to see, but sometimes you still just must see. 🙂

Christmasy Swatches

After going through all of my posts to update links for my new server, I kept my favorite Christmasy swatches aside to put in one entry. 🙂

I might as well try the cool WordPress “Gallery in a post” feature!

Misa – Lost To The World

I really found this taupe shade to be pretty perfect. It isn’t as dark as OPI – YDKJ or Essie – Mink Muffs.

Then it gets even more perfect when you see the flash of hidden shimmer!

The shimmer isn’t always noticeable, unfortunately. But since I loved the shade of taupe that it is, I didn’t mind. 🙂

Honeymoon!!

I’m in Hawaii!! And finally took off my french tips that were getting all screwed up anyway.

I made this franken before the wedding… RBL Poco a Poco was too light so I added China Glaze IX, Nicole by OPI You’re An Angel, and OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes and made this gorgeousness!!
