January 2012 Haul Swatches!

January was such a fun month to shop for nail polish. From putting myself on an early "no-buy" in mid December to prepare for Christmas, I was beyond ready to start hauling again! Fortunately for me (and my wallet), I hit up some amazing sales and got close to half of my haul either on sale or clearance! I love when that happends! I also was able to get my hands on a new brand of nail polish! Although I was not a fan of it once I got it home and tried it, it's still always fun to try new things! Without further adue, here are the swatches for my January 2012 nail polish haul. If you would like to see the video of my haul, I will post it at the bottom of this post :) Enjoy!

(These swatches are WITHOUT a topcoat)

I hope you enjoyed my haul and swatches! I will see ya in the next post!

Victoria's Secret Valentines Day Inspired Manicure

When I think of Valentine's Day and 'Love', I instantly think of Victoria's Secret, the colors pink and red and hearts. What better way to be inspired, right?! So, here is a simple Valentines Day manicure that I think anyone can do; beginner or professional :)
For this manicure I used the polishes:
* China Glaze 'Sugar High'
* Sinful Colors 'Folly'
* and, a white striper pen

Check out the video below of me doing the design! :)

I hope  you guys like this Valentines Day manicure, and I will see you in the next post!

A Purple Flowery Water Marble and YouTube vent! :)

YouTube is being the biggest pain! I have this beautiful purple, flowery water marble that I wanted to share with everyone, but after three failed attempts at uploading it, YouTube is now not allowing me to even log in. So, until I can get the video up, here are the pictures!

I absolutely love this one! I was going for a flower design, and this what I got. I'm still fairly new at creating designs and what- not, but I am pretty happy with the way this one turned out!

I used China Glaze 'Urban Night', 'Light As Air' and OPI 'A Grape Fit'.

I have several videos waiting to be uploaded as soon as YouTube decides to play nice! I hope everyone is having a good new year and I will see you in the next post!

Valentine's Day Quilted Mani

It's been awhile since I last posted a blog. I've gotten lazy when it comes to taking pictures of my manicures, but one of the things I want to keep up on this year is my blog.

I love quilted manis, glitter and the color pink, so how perfect is this next mani?!

This manicure was actually inspired by Victoria's Secret 'Pink' brand, but it always reminded me of Valentines Day, so this is what I'll be wearing on Valentines Day!

The light pink is China Glaze 'Something Sweet' and the glitter polish is OPI 'Teenage Dream'. The is the perfect combination of pinks IMO. :)

I hope you guys enjoyed this Valentines Day/Victoria's Secret inspired manicure. :) If you'd like to see how I did this nail design, you can check out my youtube channel:

Have a good day, and I'll see you again soon!
