Happy New Year's Eve!!!

Hi friends! Sorry I have been M.I.A. for the past few days. All the holiday celebrations over the last week have kept me quite busy with little time to blog! Can you believe it is New Year's Eve?! I just can't get over how fast this year has gone. What a whirlwind it has been.

Since it is NYE, I had to do something and end the year with some nail art! I just wouldn't be a proper nail blogger if I didn't, lol!

ILNP Super Nova

Hey guys and gals! Happy Christmas Eve! I am in the middle of a cookie bake-a-thon at the moment, so today's post is a short and sweet one!

As I mentioned earlier this week, I will be showing the three ILNP multichrome flakies individually to maximized the viewing pleasure! If you missed the epic ILNP Brilliance, you can see that post, here. Today, I have the beautiful peacock shade, Super Nova!

Twinsie Tuesday: Holiday Special

Hey y'all! Today is a special edition of Twinsie Tuesdays. In case you didn't notice, all the Twinsies decided to take a short break over December, as the holidays and family commitments were taking up a majority of our time. But we wanted to do something special to celebrate the holidays with each other and you all, so we decided to do a double mani post honoring the Christmas and Hanukkah holidays.

I, personally, love this idea! While I'm not particularly religious, I believe it is important to recognize all beliefs and traditions. Only when we open our hearts to everyone can we truly begin to understand the notion of love and acceptance. Okay enough soapbox, time for the nail art!

ILNP Brilliance

Hi friends! A very happy Monday to you all! I cannot get over how close we are until the big day, and the end of the year. It has definitely been a roller coaster for me and I am hoping to have a nice quiet finish, lol! Not sure if that is going to happen, but one can always hope, right?

As promised, albeit a week late, I have swatches of the three ILNP multichrome flakies that I snagged from the pre order a few weeks ago. I decided to split them up into three separate posts, because it is just too much awesome to fit into one, lol!! So today I am starting with my favorite, ILNP Brilliance.

Snowy Nail Of The Day

Ohhai friends! Well we are back from East Texas, technically since Monday afternoon, and the mound of dirty clothes from the trip has dwindled down enough that I had time to do a little something with my nails!

The weather has turned cold and dreary, so I figured I would do something seasonally appropriate. And I had this gorgeous bottle of Love Angeline Love At Frost Sight sitting around waiting ever so patiently to be used.

Saturday Snapshot: Multichrome Flakie Gradient

Hi friends! So I am currently in East Texas visiting my family for the holidays, but I didn't want the blog to be inactive while I was gone, so I am sharing a quick post of my nails for the trip. Well at least what was on them before I left. I brought a few polishes to play with while I am here, so no guarantee what they look like now!

If you are active in the nail community on IG, then I am sure you have seen the amazing new multichrome flakies that have been making their way into many Indie polishes. In fact, I just swatched some lovelies from Takko Lacquer a few days ago! 

One of the big release was a full line of thirteen multichrome flakies from ILNP, and I couldn't help but to get a few during the pre-sale! This is just a quick little gradient I did with one of them, but next week I will have full glorious swatches of the three I did pick up!

Fall/Winter Color Trends Wrap Up and 2015 Color Of The Year

Hey y'all! So this is the wrap up post of the Fall/Winter seasonal color trends. I personally really loved this palette. I think the color combination was a great way to express the vintage flare that is very present in fashion lately. It was a big season for creams, even though China Glaze and Zoya added some really interesting finishes to their fall/winter offerings. But I feel that a cream fits so perfectly with the season!

Takko Lacquer Winter 2014 Release Part Two

Hey guys and gals! So how is your week going? Anyone stressing out over the holidays yet, lol? I have so much stuff jammed into the next few weeks that I may be a little crazy by the time New Year's gets here! But before I go off the deep end, I have more Takko Lacquer goodies to show you guys! 

Today is part two of the winter release - with a total of seven new colors to lust after. The first three were swatched on Monday, so if you missed that post, you can read it here. I have three more to share in today's post (the seventh one was mistakenly left out of my package, but will be arriving shortly for me to swatch for you guys) and they are simply beautiful!

Takko Lacquer Winter 2014 Release Part One

 Hey y'all! How was your weekend? Mine was made exceptionally better after swatching the new Takko Lacquer beauties for the upcoming Winter release! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw a couple of sneak peeks at some of the polishes to be released at the end of the week.

China Glaze Don't Get Derailed Fall/Winter 2014 Color Trend

Hey guys and gals, another week has come and gone! Today's Color Trend post is the last one of the season. We have made it through the entire fall/winter palette with only one exception (Misted Yellow) and I couldn't find a single polish to match. Not that I am complaining, the color is not very polish friendly!

The last color is the muted warm green, Cypress. A lot of people have a hard with this color, but I actually really like it - clothing or makeup. China Glaze Don't Get Derailed from the most awesome All Aboard fall collection nails this earthy tone perfectly!

Oh, and sadly no, my nails did not magically grow back over night into my lovely rounds I had previously. I took these pics before my nail broke. Sigh...

Matte Skittlette Nail Of The Day

Hey guys and gals, short and sweet post for you all today - we had a loss in the family yesterday and all my energy is being devoted to that. But I did want to share my nails, because: one, it makes me happy to blog and I need it right now, and two, sometimes a mani is just too good not to share!

O.P.I. Today I Accomplished Zero

Hi friends! How was your weekend? Did you partake in any of the awesome polish sales? I actually skipped out this year because I may or may not have gone on a spending spree a few weeks ago! Today's polish being one of them. I picked up O.P.I.'s Today I Accomplished Zero at my local Ulta, but never wore it.

As you can see, I am back to squared nubs. I broke off much of the nail on my ring finger yesterday. Shorty squares look so great with a dark and edgy polish, so I grabbed Today I Accomplished Zero since it was sitting in my untried pile. I really don't know how to feel about going short and square - I really love the longer round nails I had, but this polish is making me feel a little better!
