Orange Freestyle Challenge

It is orange freestyle day....
I chose to to start out with a gradient of light to darker orange for the base. 
Then I stamped with white and used my dotting tool to accent the flowers and add some interest. 
I then topped with China Glaze Fairy Dust. 
This is NOT one of my favorites by any means.
I am STILL in the growing out phase of POST-acrylics.
My nails are NOT even close to where I need them to be.
I am taking daily vitamins and Biotin along with my Seche Vite treatments. 
Hopefully I will see some progress soon.

Summer Challenge Dots

Today's post is for Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge
Summer Dots

For this mani I used a bunch of summery colors for the base.
I painted them with a dotting tool in little patches.
Then I took a glitter polish to "set" the colors together better.
After that I took my dotter and added various colored dots and sizes throughout my nails.
Very easy and a F-U-N way to use LOTS of pretty polishes!!

Chelsea Flower Show

I just joined a facebook group called 
Today's challenge was Chelsea Flower Show

I admit to "cheating" by recycling an old mani pic!!!
Today is a bad day for me and oddly enough I don't feel like painting my nails. 
My father-in-law passed away about 9 months ago and today is his birthday. 
If I end up painting my nails it will be for him.
Possibly hunting or fishing themed.

For this mani I used punki purple from ultra PRO 
then I stamped black zebra with konad plate m57.
Then I stamped white flowers from konad plate m60.
I added some silver and pink rhinestones.

Hope you like you it!!!

Seche Vite Rebuild

OK So here's my problem. I got suckered in acrylic nails and now I am ready to grow out my natural nails. There's nothing wrong with artificial nails but I admit I went to a lower end nail salon and ended up with the nail tech DRILLING and DRILLING my nail beds!!! UGHHH!! So here I am today!!! I have weak, thin, peeling natural nails that I NEED to get back to PRE-acrylics. They used to be healthy and strong WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?! Well today is day one!!!
I am going to try Seche Vite Rebuild. I have always used OPI nail envy as my basecoat so I wanted to try something different.
Here's a picture of day one:

This is a protein product that seals nail layers, builds thickness, and promotes nail strength. You apply this product once daily and then remove after 4 days and reapply. It CAN be used as a base coat!!! So if you are like me, that means that you can paint your little, brittle, stubs!! If you use as a base coat you need to remove BOTH polishes and reapply the next day. I can handle THAT!! HECK, I do that now!
So here's a pic of my painted stubs!!! 

You can't even tell that my nails are damaged! I am wearing Finger Paints Silkscreen Green from the Neon Collection stamped with konad m-73 in Orly Green Apple. I added some red and pink dots for "flowers" This was a quickie manicure since it will only last until tomorrow afternoon ;0)

Dollish Polish

This is my First purchase from an INDIE seller and I am thrilled!!!
This is from Dollish Polish check her out here: 
Here face book site will keep you informed to when she will restock her shop.

I have from LEFT to RIGHT:
Team Salvatore
Does Barry Manilow know you raid his wardrobe?
Super Bass
I want to do bad things to you
Heart of glass
He slimed me

Heart Of Glass over Orly Black with blue and deep purple striping brush designs. 
I went TOO far ( in my opinion and added some silver swipes)
This color is AMAZING I got many many compliments even though my ever so UGLY nail art gone bad ruined Dolly's beautiful concoction!!! 

OHHHH Super Bass!!!! To be honest I only bought this because her polishes are WAY hard to snag and this baby was able to sneak into my cart. The pics I saw on the web didn't appeal to me but I HAD to buy some DOLLISH POLISH!!! 
I am so GLAD I did!!! This is my #1 Favorite! The purples and blues and beyond words!! This is a MUST to buy!!! This is layered over Orly black and side swiped then accented with a fimo butterfly on the ring finger. 
LOOOOVED this MANI and got more compliments than ANY other EVER!!!!


This is my very first blog post. I figured I am overdue considering how obsessed I am with nail polish! 
This blog will be a mixture of my own personal MANI's and possibly others that I see around that I like. Also I will post pics of new polish finds, limited editions, indies, etc.
I would love to start swapping.
OK here goes!!
