Happy Sunday! Who remembers crackle? The very first texture polish. Well today I pulled out a bottle and put it to use. I used China Glaze's Cracked Concrete over OPI Kiss My Tulips and topped it with Wet n Wild Kaleidoscope. For my accent nails I did a splatter mani using coffee straws. Enjoy :-)

More Dotting

Quick post. I used my doing tools and Wet n Wild Black Creme. I topped my accent nail with INM Northern Lights a holo top coat. Enjoy

Salon Effects

Welcome! Today, I'm posting more nail decals. I had a busy work week and didn't feel like painting my nails everyday. This time I used Sally Hansen salon effects real nail polish strips in Tri-Bal It On. These have a pretty black and white tribal pattern. Easy as always to apply. Peel, stick and file. I wore them for three days only changing my accent nail. Enjoy

Hey loves, thanks for stopping by. Today I have a Walmart Pure Ice Haul $1.97 each. Pure Ice has never been a favorite brand of mine not even for the price. I find their formulas to thin and inconstant. But they have a new line of colors out so I had to give them another try.
First up is Sheer Luck. This a green micro glitter with purple and teal hex glitter suspended throughout. Here's what I hate. I hate glitters that I need my fishing pole for and I had to fish for the hex glitter. Grrr! Pretty if you want just green glitter, anyway.
 Next is Twisted. Great name because this was a twisted blue. A flaky mix of blue, teal and green. Wonderful color great on it's own. Two coats even application. Nice. First with flash and the out of focus shot is closer to real color with blue under tones. For $4 bucks I'm happy with these. Enjoy :-P
