Summer Fishnet Nails! #manicure #nails #loreal

Good morning beauties!  How nice was it to have a day off? Whoo hoo, I loooved it.  Sigh, reminds me of the days of working from home and having my little Sam Dog at my side all day long.  Gotta make that dolla though, haha.

Anyways, new mani for you guys, the Summer Fishnet .  I’m so happy it’s summer and I can wear bright colors all the time.  This time I did L’oreal’s Tangerine Crush with some fishnet nail art on top (in fuschia).  The fishnets were done with  an unknown brand of stripping polish.  my mom got it for me somewhere and I finally used it.

Bring In The New Year Manicure!

I trust everyone had a wonderful holiday so far…I know I have! And aside from Halloween, New Years Eve‘s is one of my favorite holidays.  My boyfriend and I usually go out dancing,  meet up with friends at parties, and of course see Doc Mix records.

Its been a while since my last post. Sorry, I think we all go MIA around the holidays and everyone’s back to normal business. I bought a new polish over the weekend and wanted to feature it in this weeks manicure. It’s a glitter, but with long glitters and that stand out!

I present you Save Me, from OPI’s Nicki Minaj Collection. Silver glitter with blue and pink “long” glitters.

Here is the rest of the line. I really want the pink one too.

I decided to pair it with another new favorite of mine Essie’s Shine of the Times an iridescent flakie polish.

I wanted to keep the manicure light by using Essie’s Marshmallow, a soft creamy white.

I loved this combination it looks fun and sparkly, and catches light from all angles.

Save Me also looks great over a shiny black polish which I tried on my toes first. Which do you prefer? A light mani? or darker nails?

and on another note…have an awesome (and safe) New Years Eve!!!!

Nail Polish Swatch: Zoya Roxy & OPI Teenage Dream together

Lately, it’s been hard to go a weekend without getting a new polish.  This past weekend I grabbed two new (to me) Zoya Polishes in Roxy and Neeka.  I wanted to jump on the “paint your ring finger” bandwagon this time using glitters so I choose and old and a new one.

OPI – Teenage Dream – A clear pink  polish with pink & champagne glitter

Zoya – Roxy – A sheer red-toned purple base loaded with bright purple glitter

Zoya’s Roxy ended up being much more opaque than I originally had thought–but didn’t squash my love for the glittery purple.  The base is deep and the glitter highlights in brighter shades of purple.  I did apply 3 coats but I think two would suffice.  I also added a top coat but the next day it does feel grainy or bumpy still from the polish.  I’m temped to do another top coat but afraid I’ll go through a bag of cotton pads trying to remove it later on!
