Easter Manicure

Hello everyone!  Happy Easter to those who celebrate and happy Sunday to those who don’t.  🙂

Today I have Nails Inc Lower Regent Street with a nice topping of Angel Burp by I Love Nail Polish.  Lower Regent Street is a bright fuschia pink that is described as a deep cerise pink on the website.  It gave complete coverage with two coats, and dried to a nice shine. As I’ve come to expect, the application of Nails Inc. polish was a dream! The addition of Angel Burp gave this bright pink a bit more of a Springtime/Easter feel.  This clear polish is a mix of opalescent/iridescent hex and square glitters and a nice bit of microfine glitter.  This first shot shows the manicure, topped with TWO coats of Seche Vite in daylight.

Here is the same manicure shown under the light of a camera flash.  This view definitely gives you a  better view of those wee little glitters I told you about.  These are both gorgeous polishes that I am sure I will get a lot of use from.  Also, the I Love Nail Polish bottles have a nice rubberized cap!!  That makes polishing so easy as the cap feels quite secure in the hand.  I’ve really come to like this feature that I’ve seen so far in Orly and now I Love Nail Polish.  Nails Inc.

Thanks for stopping by, as always.  I hope you all have a great week ahead!

Random Manicures

Here are some manicures I’ve done in the last couple weeks.  I’ve been busy with school. so haven’t been as attentive to the blog as I would like to be.  I will have to stockpile some photos and set up posts when I have some time to steal away.  🙂

The first one uses Nicole by OPI’s Khloe Had a Little Lam-Lam, a dark forest green/teal cream, with an accent nail of Lush Lacquer’s Frankenmama, a clear base packed with with small purple glitter, matte black bright green hex glitter.  I was hoping to pick up a bit more of the green from the Frankenmama  to highlight the dark teal green of the Lam-Lam, but it wasn’t meant to be apparently.  Also, excuse mu super dry cuticles, must not have used my cuticle butter that day.

Here’s Torrid from Orly’s Holiday Minis set.  LOVE IT!  It’s a bright and shiny red with a slightly gold shimmer that looks great indoors and explodes in sunlight!  These are photos taken indoors with artificial light, so it’s not so apparent.  I will have to remember to get some outdoor shots next time I have it on.  While this color does bring Christmas to mind immediately, I think it is one that can be broken out year-round whenever you need a little pick-me-up.

The phrase “Santa Baby” came to mind when I first saw it on my nails.  This is one that I may actually get a full sized bottle of in addition to the mini that came with this set.

Now here it is with an accent nail using Nicole by OPI’s A Gold Winter’s Night.  This glitter rocks!  It’s a clear base with TONS of gold rose colored glitter, along with a bunch of holographic bars.  It can be used over any color and will give full coverage in 2 or 3 coats.  I am cuckoo for glitter lately, not sure what’s up with that.  Mid-life crisis you say?  No comment. <stern looks all around>

That’s it for now.  I hope you are all having a wonderful fall and that you enjoy your Thanksgiving and Black Friday shopping if you’re a reader from the US.  I never really used to be into the whole Black Friday thing, but have made the treck out for the last several years.  It’s kind of like a shopping version of new year’s eve party!  LOL  More of a social event and if you get some good deals out of it, awesome!!   I do some online also, so it’s not all complete madness.  (*^_^*)

Everyone else have a great week ahead!
