Miracle Gel

Hey guys! Okay Sally Hansen has joined the no light gel polish craze. Is it a craze? Anyway I bought this from Walgreens for $15.99. Wow! Yeah, but it came with the "special" top coat and a coupon for $2.00 off your next purchase of this product.  They have an impressive array of colors. I choose Shock Wave. It's a cream barbie pearlized pink. The iridescent shimmer is barely present.
 This is three streaky coats from beginning to end.  I added some stones not gonna wear this for longer then a couple days. So, I won't be reporting back on the wear time.
Enjoy!

IBD Gel Nails

Hello all,
Mani for the week I decided to go with gels. I've been wearing polish for a couple of weeks. I forgot how much I missed changing my nail look so often. But, a busy work week ahead calls for gels. I got this on clearance at Sally a few weeks ago. This is IBD gel pot in Return to Paradise. This is 4 thin coats. Then I used brush on nail glue after I cleansed and top coated to secure my embellishments. Enjoy!

Bling Texture

Quick post. . . I know, I just started back already making 'em quick, lol. Nice smooth one coater for both colors. Blue is Sally Hansen Razzleberry. The pink is Bump & Grind by  China Glaze. I love texture polishes. For me because it's one less step without the topcoat. It last super long. I wore these to work for 4 days and had minor tip wear. I am loving crystals now. Got these from the craft store. When I become a nail tech I'll pay $20 for 5 stones, but for now "shine bright like a diamond" on a budget, lol ;~) Enjoy

My Return

I haven't posted in over a year. I have been doing my nails, but my life seems to be getting away from me. I want to try and catch it. Join me.

For my return mani I really wanted flowers.  I SUCK at making flowers. I've tried dotting tools brushes.  I just can't get it. Right now. Anyway I used Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow then I topped it with China Glaze Fairy Dust. For my flowers I used acrylic paint.  On my left head (Cinderella hand ) i added some 3D crystals. Then Sech Vite to seal. Enjoy
