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.

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?

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?

Mani Monday – The Perfect Green

So if you know me, or have been following this blog, you know that I have been on the hunt to find the perfect green nail polish, and I think that I just found it. I scored when buying this nail polish. I was scrolling through Amazon when I found this deep green polish, it’s Off Tropic by Essie nail polish, I knew that I was going to get it, but then I procrastinated.

That same weekend, I went to Marshall’s and while browsing I found the nail polish, for only $3.99, how awesome was that?! Don’t sleep on stores like Marshall’s and TJ Maxx, you never know what you might find.

While you’re using this nail polish, you might think that this color is opaque with one coat, but I found that if you use one coat, your mani will end up steaky. For this nail polish, it’s best to use 2 coats. After I let the nails dry, I used my Orly top coat and was on my way.

This nail polish is amazing, it’s the perfect green for the fall and you can add a red nail as an accent for the upcoming holiday season. My only gripe with this nail polish (I think, could also be the topcoat I am using) is that it started to chip after a couple of days. My manicure did not last a week.

QUESTION TIME: WHAT TYPE OF TOP COAT DO YOU USE?
