Cuticle Oil

I use a cuticle oil from Julep that smells wonderful and works well for me. I keep it on my desk. They also sell polish I have a few colors my hubby got me that I think I might have used before I started blogging. I need to do a mani with them and take pictures to show you.

 I added some hearts. I used color club Wish List Red. I had a hard time doing the hearts because this is a glitter polish. Yup glitter does not go where I want it very well.

Random Glitter

These pictures are taken outside except for the top one and yup that is snow on the ground. I live in the Pacific Northwest and we have a light dusting of snow and overcast sky. So it is snow/rain and yucky out. We could use a little more sun around here. Dark inside, dark outside just dark. So I added a glitter from a Walmart gift box. All the polishes in the box say The Color Works other then that the bottles have no ID color or code. It's actually a nice glitter. Light ,can't feel it on the nail which is good because when I have a heavy or chunky glitter on I tend to play with it.

With the interest in toluene free polish lately I wanted to get this posted. This is Samantha by Julep . I could not get a good picture. This is a Hot Strawberry Pink if you ask me and looks great in real life not so with my dinky camera. Remember to click on the picture to enlarge it. Have a Great Day
Closest I could get to showing how Strawberry pink this is.


Okie dokie, I am finding I can not remember what polishes I have used and posted. Therefore I am going thru my posts and labeling them. As I do this though I am finding myself constantly going off and visiting nail blogging sites and getting side tracked lol. So between leveling my many toons in WOW to 85, being addicted to Frontierville, watching my favorite shows, listening to my daughters and advising them as they ask for it, playing and keeping up with Gizmo and Bailey, cooking, Ironing, paying bills, various chores and Loving my Hubby time is flying by. So that is what I am up to. Hopefully I can stay on task and get all my stuff labeled. Lucky for me I have not been Blogging long. I strongly advise if you are new to blogging that you take advantage of the label gadget asap. Peace!

Added Konad M73

Hey quick post it's night so these pics are taken under light. Hubby just poured me some tawny port, YUM! So hopefully this is coherent as I am on glass number 2. For some reason wine goes quickly to my head. Anyways wanted to post this before I change it. Thinking of adding hearts which might be to much. But I enjoy going over board on a mani just before I change it. It's the best time to experiment. Peace out!

What ya doin?

Ok so you might be wondering what is with all the pictures. Well this polish changes depending on the light. I looked all over trying to find out if maybe someone had a good picture already and honestly I don't think anyone does. These do not even really show you the beauty of this polish. I love dark colors, love dark chocolate, purple, gold, Port Wine, shimmer I am drawn to these like a moth to flame. Ok well maybe not the wine so much though I do enjoy a glass now and then. I read the reviews many wrote that this is a double of another polish, 2 other polishes were mentioned. I don't own those but I do own this one.  Tease-Y Does It by OPI. I used OPI base coat, 2 coats of Tease-Y Does It and OPI top coat. Bailey was like what the fraq are you doing as I tried to take pictures. I just could not capture this color the way I wanted to. These pictures are the best I could do with my crummy camera. But you can see the chocolate and purple a bit depending on the light.
