Happy New Year!
Quick post this is Burlesque Rising Star. Now the photos will show 2 different colors but if you ask me both are accurate. Depending on the light this polish looks gold or copper. I think it is like having a foil only it is polish. Very pretty. I used essie base coat, 2 coats of OPI Rising Star, and one coat of OPI top coat. So though it was not opaque on the first coat with just 2 coats it has nice coverage. Excuse the tips of my nails I actually took a file to them after the mani because I was not happy with them. My nails under the polish are just trashed from the Holiday cooking and cleaning. Peace be with you and yours.

Color Club

First Thank you to Susie for this idea. These are the ornaments I did as party favors for this year.

I am babysitting my daughters dog during the day while she and her husband are at work. Oso had eye surgery and we don't want her to mess her stitches up. While Bailey and Gizmo think they could just be friends with her if I would let them out it isn't going to happen.
Poor Oso I hope she heals fast she doesn't like the cone much.

 Finally this is my mani I did while watching Oso. I started with Essie Ridge Filling Basecoat. Then Color Club Wish List Red, nail stickers that came with the polish and top coated with OPI top coat. The gloves are a gift from my Mom. I love them! Peace and Merry Christmas!

I blinked

Totally do not know where the days have gone. My hubby has had some vacation days and has also been working from home and that throws off my whole schedule. Also WOW has an expansion and it has sucked us in a bit. Oh well. Here are a few pictures. The light blue polish is my experiment with what my daughter wanted for her nails and the dark blue is what we settled on for a Christmas party.

Playing w/dots

 I still have not removed the polish instead I played some more. It's all coming off as soon as I make the time. Tonight a friend made level 80 in W.O.W. (World of Warcraft) and we're taking him on an ICC run. So it won't be tonight.

 Below is a morning picture of Bailey with what we call Bailey Bed Head. Her ears always go down for sleep and after she wakes up they stay upright all day.
Morning Bailey!

So when I woke up my nails had sheet marks on them. As I looked at them I thought ok lets not even bother taking this polish off and experiment with glitter on them. Which is what I did.

 The Fireplace peeps came to make sure our fireplace was okie dokie for winter. Bailey was a little distressed when they went up on the ladder outside. She got over it and I got this picture because I had the camera in my hand at that moment. Peace

Sinful Colors HD Nails

Quick post of pictures for my records. I am going thru polishes I own to see if anything I have will work for an evening holiday party. Yesterdays gold is a strong contender. I do like this green and the glitter is ok but it isn't what my daughter and I are looking for. I didn't put Milani Gems on all my nails because I am going to try another polish tommorow and glitter is a pain to remove. I would rather not torture my hands and nails more then I need to. Yes I could do this on a wheel but for me it just is not the same. Anyways here are two pictures of Sinful Colors Professional HD Nails with seche base, pinkie has Milani Gems and no top coat on any of my nails. This green is shiny alone. Though I don't like it alone and if I was going to keep this mani I would gem all my nails and be a happy camper. Very Christmassy. But not the polish we're questing for in my trove. I don't like the second picture because my fingers are not lined up right but it was best shot I had of Gems. Peace
