Hot Topic Black

Quick post. Love Hot Topic polish, really do not love bottle or the brush. These are two shots one with outside light near back door, other is inside near side window. This might seem crazy but since I knew I was going to be using black polish I put on a few base layers. First I used Nutra Nail with ginseng and vitamin E that I had laying around in a drawer. Then I used Sally Hansen Max Growth next I used Seche Base Crystal Clear. Will see how well this works. Last I put on one coat of Hot Topic Black polish. I took these shots before using a top coat because I wanted to show how shiny this polish is.

Chicken Legs

Awhile back my hubby looked down started laughing and called Bailey Chicken Legs. I was like huh? So I looked down and this is what we saw. Notice the Drumstick. It was a LOL moment for us. Bailey has lost a few pounds since this picture. Our Vet gave us a small lecture about her diet.

Ruby Clarity

I asked my hubby what nail polish I should choose next and he chose this one. It is a vampy red if you ask us. Very pretty in low light a bit like strawberry jam under the lights. I used Essie first base as base coat, 2 coats of Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Nourishing Nail Color Ruby Clarity, and Seche Vite top coat.

Nailslick Sunrise and Bats

This polish was kicking around in a drawer. It was so old that, *gasp* I had to shake it. I am so glad we kept it. I say we because I am pretty sure this belongs to one of my daughters. I used CG nailslicks Sunrise over a base coat, konad black special polish and BM13. I had a few smudges after I put a top coat on. So I did some touch up. After redoing one nail I messed up I said sqrew it. I envy all those perfect konads out there. This one will work for now. I was up all night playing World of Warcraft and doing my nails. I will try to get pictures of this mani during the day later. For now though here is what I have with indoor lighting. Thank you for stopping by. I need to go get some sleep.
  Ok I am awake. Below are the pictures I just took. I used a detail brush with the Sunrise polish to touch up some of the smears.

Florida Trip: Day 1 (8/4/2010)

My daughter and son in law. He likes to video here are some more he has done youtube. I want to clarify for myself that my daughter has been on a plane several times over. To New York, Florida, Europe and California. But as is the case I find my children seem to never remember that yes they have gone on trips. Granted though this is the first time away from their dog Oso. My daughter adopted Oso from room mates that abandoned her.

I started with a Seche Base coat then added 3 coats of Wet n Wild Goldmine. Using a make up sponge I then added Wet n Wild Inferno. Next from the dollar store are leaf decals and topped it all off with Seche top coat. The pinkie somehow messed up only I can't remember how I managed that. I did some minor repair to the polish on the pinkie. I like these polishes only drawback is they are sheer. If I did this mani again I think I would only put the inferno on my tips. I added WnW Jade to the tips.
