Zoya Polish Haul!

Got me some new Zoya polishes!


They are fantastic. Love them. Here's a qquickie swatch sesh. Each polish has just one thick coat.

Matte About You Topcoat!

Okay guys, I apologize that 1. My posts have been so non existent and 2. They're so unorganized. My laptop charger broke so I'm currently living SANS COMPUTER. The worst. So I've been blogging right from my phone.

Anyways, I got my first ever matte top coat, Essie's Matte About You. SERIOUSLY WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE?! I don't even know what to say I adore it. Easy application. Fast drying. So far I don't know about chipping because I cannot wait to post this! Absolute A++ could not be happier.

I'll post pics of my current mani without top coat first then with will follow right after. The last pic is just my response to the awesomeness that is matte.

Christmas French Manicure

I am literally only posting this because I am so beyond frustrated that I'm surprised I got ANY results out of this.

I've been doing my nails straight for 2 hours and destroyed a sheet set, a quilt and the Mickey Mouse blanket my grandparents gave to me as a kid so far. I have screwed up 2 manicures beyond repair and this is the best I've managed to get so far. I'm only gonna show the hand that KIND of looks right because the other one is crap.

I got the idea from it off a tutorial on Instagram. The nail community on that is pretty solid.

Candy Cane Nails

Okay so I was GOING to keep the snowflake fail mani on for a couple days at least but they rubbed off in the shower! I was so mad! I let them dry for an hour!!!!

So tonight I had to try something different. Sticking with my Christmassy theme (might as well, right!!!?) I chose candy canes!!!!

My roommate and I painted our nails together while watching a movie. I thought I'd share hers as well just cuz!

More Jasper!

Just a couple cute pics of my boy :)

Snowflake Fail

Okay so there is no clean up because I'm honestly not sure if I'm even going to keep this mani on. It really didnt turn out how I wanted AT ALL. I'm sure no explanation is necessary and you can see what I was going for. My hands are just far too shaky for it tonight.

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer

Sorry for my lack of posting, life kind of got in the way of things.

Here's my first ever attempt at doing REAL nail art. I don't have any brushes yet so I just used the polish bottle brushes.
