StrangeBeautiful Polish Manicure

I ordered 5 bottles of Strange Beautiful polish from Anthropologie...these nail polishes come in bottles of 2 I love the packaging it's so cute! For this manicure I wore the bottom bottle olive green manicure for a couple days before I painted on those designs with some of the other colors in the collection cause I wanted to try on the colors so bad =P Swatches of the olive green coming...I LOVEEEE the formula on these polishes theyre awesome!

Deborah Lippmann - Supermodel

This is Deborah Lippmann - Supermodel...I absolutely love this color its so refreshing and's a sheer so you can see vnl but not too can see it a lot worst in my pics cause of the flash and closeup...i tried to explain to my friend what vnl was and that you could see it with this polish and his response was "all i see are cool red nails" so i guess thats the verdict =P

formula on this was absolutely amazing i loved it...i've already worn it a couple times and I'm wearing this for work tomorrow since it's a nice safe color but at the same time it's uber chic =D

Teal Leapard Manicure

So I saw these nails on Wah Nails and thought they were super cute and stopped by Ulta after work to look for some nail glue since my toenail is hangin by a millimeter from jammin it in basketball =( While looking around I saw these nail art pens by sally hansen and decided to try em out and did a quick manicure in store...turned out so cute that I decided to buy the pen and do a full manicure at home =D this is the result =)

I used:
Barielle: A bouquet for Ava
Opi: Ate berries in the canaries
Sally Hansen: Black nail art pen

Polish Hoarder Disorder Sponge Contest submission

Polish Hoarder Disorder had a contest last week and the theme was sponge this was my entry...if you look closely my left and right hand are slightly different...I like my right hand better with the all gold tips instead of the diff colored tips on my left hand...what do u guys think? I've noticed my right hand usually ends up better cause I'll change things I didn't like on my left hand haha

Blue Floral Manicure

I know I already posted this one...but the previous post was w/ crappy iphone quality pics so i figured i'd upload the nicer ones again just so you guys can see the details =)

Simple Fast manicure

this was just a nice simple design I think I'd had some pretty flashy manicures in a row and wanted something more neutral...I loved how this turned out and it was really easy since all i did was randomly put different sized/shaped rhinestones on a couple diff fingers....uberly easy and fast manicure

Floral Manicure

I actually did this manicure before I the one that I previously posted...this was my first ever manicure painting the lil flowers and I loved it...I just didn't ever have the time to get around to posting this until now...I LOVE LOVE LOVE the deborah lippman pink I used it's like the one color i've used more than 3 times in my life...I'm usually pretty a.d.d about colors I get bored of them so if I've used a color more than twice you know its a keeper...

anyway you can see with the two handed pic that the flowers on my right hand are bigger...that's because I painted them w/ my left hand (and i'm a rightie), but I actually think they look better as bigger flowers...wuddya guys think?
