New Years Eve :D

Are you guys ready for tonight?! I hope everyone has a blast bringing in the new year!!!

I have a BLINGY mani today :) just for the occasion.

There are three coats of Pop A Bottle by Icing on my four fingers. And 3 coats of Gold Accessory by Maybelline on my thumb nail. 

To show the pink and blue

Pop a Bottle is a glitter packed sheer base polish. It is mainly gold micro glitter, but there are some pink and blue glitter in there as well that show up great on the nail but not in the photos :(

Hope you all have a great and safe night and new year!!!

Any new years-themes that are going to be on your nails??

Fireworks :)

Oops :) Forgot to take pics of this mani before wearing it :)
Well you get to see the wear of the polish this way :)

This is my pre-new year mani, I am going to be changing it for the actual night/day.

Excuse my dry hands!

They are supposed to be fireworks :)

I used 1 coat of Sinful Colors Black on Black, then a coat of WnW Megalast Blackmail. That has multicolored glitter in it, but on the nail it wasn't visible :( I was thinking it would make it look like the starry sky but oh well.

Then I stamped 'fireworks' on with several metallic golds and silvers. I used BM02 for the plate and Orly Luxe, Zoya Richelle, and Zoya Trixie.

I really loved this manicure upclose but it was far too subtle to wear for new years. I need some bling!!!

What are your plans for this new year's mani??

Also, my blog sale has been updated so go check it out!!

First Franken :)

This was the first 'franken' I ever tried!!! To be honest, its really not a franken... more of a way to save one of my sally hansen magicals :)

I used polish thinner to get all the dried remnants of the magical out (bad ebay purchase haha). And added the wet n wild dark purple to it.

I ended up using WAY too much purple (first franken, remember?) so I added some of the spectraflair holo topcoat that I had.

Inside, not much holo, but a pretty color!

And outside!! 

It is a very slight linear holo, but I really love the subtle effect it gives. Like a secret that I know and no one else :)

I named it Lena after the main character in one of my favorite book series, Beautiful Creatures. She is very unassuming like this polish, but has a hidden beautiful secret ;) Deep, I know haha.

In case you are interested, I wrote a review for it on my other blog here.

That's it for today, do you like it??

*** I did not write down the name of the wet n wild or magical that I used :( if anyone can tell from pictures, let me know!!***

Black Friday Haul :)

Since I have been gone there have been TONS of nail mail days, and unfortunately I just unpacked them and screamed without pictures ;) haha
So I figured I would show my black friday/cyber monday nail polish haul!!

Here is the full haul! 33 polishes total.

Instead of having a one day sale, Zoya (because they are so awesome) had tons of flash sales. I sent their twitter posts to my phone, so I managed to catch quite a few :)

L-R: Petra, Trixie, Edyta, Dree

L-R: Richelle, Codie, Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator

L-R: Jo, Tallulah, Breezi, Yummy

L-R: Ibiza, Indigo, Cynthia, Marina

L-R: Happi, Lillith, Lola

L-R: Rea, Adina, Zara, Kendal

L-R:Casey, Juleanne, Neeka

Then Cult Nails Had a sale!! I own all of the polishes already, but then I heard she was including some that never made it into a collection. 
L-R: Feel Me Up, Blackout, Tied Up

Andddd Jordana had a sale, I had never tried this brand, so I figured now was a good time to pick some up!
L-R: White, Chiffon, Mellow Yellow, Yellow Dazzle

L-R: In Love, Pink Bunny, Lavender Fields, Grape

L-R: Rich Green, Boy Oh Boy, Purple Glam

And Sephora was having their $15 gift card special, so I got this beauty for free!! 

So as you can see, I have a problem haha. This haul actually is what led me to do a purge blogsale. (There are still over 80 polishes available!!) So go check it out!

Also, I am going to be doing a bunch of swatching, and I want to know what brands you guys would like to see. So vote up in the top right corner!!

Did you guys score on black friday too???

Blog Sale and Update!

Hey!! As you may have noticed I just up and left the blogging world :(
I just kept putting it off and off until I was so nervous to even go on my page in case there was any comments about my absence! I know, silly :)

But anywhoo, it was because of COLLEGE. Ugh. It really has been wayyy more stressful this year, so my reward is going through all my polishes, purging, and buying more!!

My new interest is frankening :) so expect to see those soon! I am also going to be a swatching manic over break so I can support my blog with *hopefully* daily posts!

Soooo I will start posting again tomorrow! As for then, I purged my stash, I got rid of over 100 stash is now over 700!!!

Crazyness, I know. And a lot are untried!! Make sure you check my blog sale here or up in the top bar (there is a TON of variety).

:D Hope you all have been good while I have been gone!!
