Mani Monday – Seeing Red

Happy first week of February. This month is all about red!

For this week, I used a Wet n Wild color called Marooned Over. I know I said I was going to try to limit my nail polish purchases this year but I had to have them, they were $2.49, originally over $5. What a score!

For this color, I used 3 coats. Normally I just use 2 but it was still streaky with 2. I also used Wet n wild top coat which helped with keeping my nails from chipping and keeping them shinny.

Should I do a classic red or go with a sparkly red for valentines week?


Mani Monday – Play Date

Hey!! This is the last mani Monday for January so this means that this is the last purple nail. We move on to red nails for February!

I’m wearing Play Date by Essie.

I love this polish. It looks purple and pink at the same time. I used two coats of this and some Sinful Nails topcoat.

What nail colors are you going to wear in February? What color should I do for March?

Mani Monday – Disturbia

Hey all!

For this week, I decided to do a deep plum color. I chose Disturbia by Wet n wild.

I used two coats of this color to achieve this look. I love wet n wild nail polishes. They’re inexpensive and I love the wide brush they have.

One more purple week until January ends. I can’t believe we’re almost one month in.

Mani Monday: Lie-Lac

Keeping with the purple theme for January, I decided to do a lighter color for this week. I am using Lie-Lac by Sinful Colors. I love this nail polish because it’s so beautiful and because it’s under $5. Sinful Colors comes second to Wet n wild in the drugstore nail polishes category for me. They would be #1 if they had a wider brush.

I used two coats of this color and topped it off with my sinful colors top coat. I am currently looking for a good to coat because most of mine are almost gone.

What’s your favorite top coat?

Mani Monday – Let’s Talk!

Hey guys! Here comes another Mani Monday! Even though the color is not a “holiday” color – Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate-, it is one pretty color.

This is Let’s Talk by Sinful Colors. It is a nice purple/blue color, the only color that I know that comes to mind that is similar to this is Purple Potion by Sally Hansen. Although the Purple Potion seems to have pink undertones.

For this manicure, I used 2 coats of the nail polish. This color is not opaque at all so you will need more than one coat. I was going through my nail polish collection to find Purple Potion and as I did that, I found my Sinful Colors topcoat. I used the topcoat, and I have to say that my nails are holding up better, I think this topcoat works better than the Wet n Wild topcoat – although it is not as shiny.

What are you doing this week? Are you celebrating Thanksgiving? Black Friday? What nail polish are you wearing right now?
