Hello, for this week I used Acapella Ella by Sinful Colors. I used two coats of polish to complete this look.

I love the color because it’s the nicest baby blue, and it’s great for the spring time.

Mani Monday – Pinky Swear

Hello, for this late Mani Monday I wanted to do some nails that were classic and what better than a pink polish. I love this subtle pink because it goes with everything and it makes me feel like I have my ish together.

I used Pinky Swear by Wet n Wild. This is one of their gel nail polishes, they are normally $5.00 but I got this color and some others from the 50% off bin at Five Below.

I used about 3 coats to make the color be opaque, and the results were beautiful…for like 5 minutes. This nail polish started to chip less than 24 hours after I applied it. I even topped it with the Hard As Nails Wet n Wild top coat and that didn’t work. This is one of those colors that are beautiful but the formula just isn’t there.

What color should I do next?

Spring Cleaning my Nail Polish Collection

Hey guys, I haven’t been online in a bit; I guess life gets in the way some times. There are many rules that I have made myself for the month of April, mostly because I want to be more disciplined in my life and I want to keep track of what I do. I had two rules for this month regarding nail polish and nails.

RULE #1 – DO NOT BUY ANY NAIL POLISH THIS MONTH!!! – When I was looking over my nail polish collection, I found so many nail polishes that I have bought and never used. I also bought over 5 nail polishes in the month of March, I guess I went overboard on my birthday month.

RULE #2 – GET RID OF AT LEAST 20 NAIL POLISHES!!! I have two photo boxes full of nail polishes, some over 5 years old! I made a vow to myself to throw away some, I don’t want to become a big nail polish hoarder.

These are all of the nail polishes that I got rid of this month. The criteria that I used was

a. Are they old?

b. Do I like the color/quality?

Have you been spring cleaning? Are you clearing out your makeup/nail color collection or are you cleaning your entire house (I need to do this)? How has your April been?

 

Nails of the week – Birthday Nails

Today is my birthday!!!! so I decided to make my nails look like cake. I used two coats of  Acapella Ella from Sinful Colors and one coat of a confetti glitter topper. I love how my nails look.

These are the perfect nails for a birthday.

 

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?
