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!

China Glaze Well Trained Fall/Winter 2014 Color Trends

Hi friends! Are you all recovering from yesterday? I, for one, am staying home and attempting to clean my house a little. I can promise you, it is not a pretty sight! But before all that, I am back with another Color Trend post, yay!

If you remember back to the first post of the fall series, the Pantone color palette for the fall/winter season included two blue shade: Royal Blue (in the form of Essie Style Cartel) and Bright Cobalt, the featured color for today's post. I have an issue with the color associated with the name "Bright Cobalt." It is neither bright nor a cobalt blue. It is a dusty navy blue if anything. Oh well, at least we have a gorgeous polish like China Glaze Well Trained from the amazing All Aboard collection.

Nail Of The Day: Thankful

Hey y'all! Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends! We are off spending the day with my husband's family in San Antonio. I can pretty much guarantee there will be fantastic food and lots of alcohol, lol! Definitely a great way to spend Thanksgiving!

Today I wanted to share my holiday inspired nails and, more importantly, say thank you to all of you! I sincerely appreciate all of the comments and the interactions I get from you guys. 

My Thanksgiving nails are rather simple. I have been craving more basic designs lately - probably since I don't have a lot of time to devote to the more intricate looks. It seems my fall back method is some sort of gradient and that is what I wen with today!

China Glaze Dancing & Prancing

Hey y'all! I don't know about you guys, but I cannot believe it is already time for the holidays! This year has gone by soooo fast and I kinda feel like I wasn't able to keep up, lol!

Today I have a quick post with one of the new glitters from the China Glaze Twinkle holiday collection. I really wasn't planning on getting any of them, but I saw Dancing & Prancing at my local Sally's and was totally captivated by the shiny glitters!

Fair Maiden Polish Once Upon A Dream

Hi friends! Today I have a polish from a brand new Indie brand - Fair Maiden Polish! I love discovering new indies, especially when they have a solid branding and a fantastic first collection.

I saw Fair Maiden Polish pop up on my Instagram feed a few weeks ago and fell instantly in polish love! The initial collection - Be Your Own Heroine (girl power, yay!), consists of ten polishes and a spectraflair topcoat. Although I do have about 4 from the BYOH collection on my wish list, I opted to try out Once Upon A Dream.

Twinsie Tuesday: Favorite Sports Team

Hey y'all! How is every one's week going? Are you all staying warm? I have seen quite a few snowy pics on Instagram lately! Usually this time of year in Texas, we are having nice fall weather, but it has been crazy cold lately!

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is all about our favorite sports teams. I'm not in to sports all that much, except for baseball - and that's only if I can go see a game live! But there is a sport that I love, that, for many Texans, is almost as popular and definitely a lot more fun than HS football - Roller Derby! Texas Roller Derby is one of those awesome things that make my home state such a fun place to live. The TXRD has five pro teams - Cherry Bombs, Hell Cats, Holy Rollers, Putas Del Fuego and Rhinestone Cowgirls. I chose to represent the Hell Cats, and although they finished last in the league this year, I still love 'em!

Cirque Colors Mirror, Mirror

Hi friends! How was your weekend? We had a great time at the fundraiser event for my daughter's school. It was a great turn out with fantastic home brew beers. Definitely a fun evening!

If you follow me on IG, you may have seen a sneak peek at the unbelievably stunning Cirque Colors Mirror, Mirror LE silver flakie holiday release. I wore it out this weekend for the party and it is just as amazing as I was hoping it would be!

Zoya Nyssa Fall/Winter 2014 Color Trend

Hi friends! Happy Friday to you all! I am really looking forward to the week end. Tomorrow night is the annual fundraiser party for my girlie's school. It's a home brew beer tasting cocktail party and one of the most fun events I get to go to every year! Needless to say, I have a spectacular nail polish picked out. Grammy will be keeping the little one all week end as well, so the hubby and I will have some much needed alone time too. Yay for fun week ends, right?!

Today's Color Trend post features another neutral shade - Cognac. Instead of being a softer more pastel neutral, Pantone's Cognac is a warm rich brown with red undertones. Zoya Nyssa, from the fall Entice collection is a very wearable, very flattering version of this earthy neutral.

Twinsie Tuesday: Your Least Favorite Polish

Hey guys and gals! Today's Twinsie Tuesday post is kinda of a fun one - depending how you look at it. The theme is our least favorite polish and I am really excited to see what everyone comes up with. I am such a fiend that I really don't have a least favorite in my stash. I love them all!! I had to o through my destash box to find something worth posting about, lol!

Back when I first started blogging and I had no idea about certain brands of polish, I would buy things just because they looked pretty. And they all looked pretty, so I basically got a lot of crap. My first big disappointment came from Klean Color.

Zoya Madeline Fall/Winter 2014 Color Trend

Hey guys and gals, happy Friday! Who has exciting weekend plans? Mr. APN has a softball game tonight, and then it is a nice boring weekend for us. I love slow weekends, lol!

Today's color trend post is one that I wasn't planning to like. Mauve Mist isn't exactly a color that I am immediately drawn to on it's own. Pairing it with more interesting shades from the Fall/Winter color palette suits my taste more, so I wasn't expecting to really like the color in polish form. Zoya Madeline from the Natural Deux collection changed my mind.

Twinsie Tuesday: Minimalistic

Hi friends! Another Tuesday is upon us (mid term election Tuesday, no less!) and that means it is time for the next Twinsie Tuesday theme. This week we are going minimalistic. I really love minimalist designs. More often than not, my nail art usually reflects that aesthetic. So today's theme was a lot of fun for me!

Zoya Veronica Fall/Winter 2014 Color Trend

Hey everyone! Happy Halloween! No holiday themed nails from me today. If you missed it, I posted a super cool, edgy look on Tuesday.

Today's Color Trend post is probably my favorite one from the fall palette. Sangria is a rich and vampy cool-toned red. It is fun and modern, yet still maintaining an air of sophistication. Zoya Veronica from the Entice collection is a gorgeous representation of this fun fall hue.

Takko Lacquer Fall Collection Part 2

Hi friends! How are you all doing, this fine Wednesday? I am happy to say that my cold is all but gone and I am feeling great! No stress, no illness for once and it is a welcome change. The last two months have been a roller coaster and my poor blog has really been neglected. But such is life. We all have highs and lows and sometimes our priorities shift. So I, once again, thank you all for your patience and encouraging words. It really does mean a lot to me! Okay, enough sap, lol! 

Today is the second part of the new Takko Lacquer fall release. If you missed the first two - the Gloss48 duo - you can see them here

Twinsie Tuesday: Halloween

Hey everyone! Well it's been a couple of weeks since I posted with the Twinsie Tuesday group. I am always so upset with myself when I miss a post, so hopefully that wont happen for a long time. This week we are posting Halloween themed looks and I am kinda glad for it, otherwise I may not have done one this year!

Takko Lacquer Fall Collection Part 1

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of posting last week. I hope it was better than mine, lol! My poor pooch was sick at the beginning of the week, and then it was my turn. She had an upset tummy and decided her leash was good to eat, so we spent most of Monday at the vet and Tuesday making sure she passed it all okay. The rest of the week, I had a bad head cold, drank lost of tea, and used up a lot of tissue! I have a nasty cough that is sticking around, but am feeling loads better.

Today I have the first part of the new Takko Lacquer fall collection - which includes 4 colors in all. The first two were originally released as a Gloss48 special, but they will be re-released this Wednesday. So if you missed out, you have another chance to snag them, yay!

Essie Dress To Kilt Fall/Winter 2014 Color Trend

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great week! We are having glorious fall weather here in my part of the world. It is so nice to feel the cool breeze outside. Definitely my favorite time of year!

Today's Color Trend post is all about the ultimate classic color - Red. Pantone's fall palette is filled with vintage hues and Aurora Red is as vintage as it gets. A bright tomato red shade takes a grand departure from the standard Ox blood of the past. Sadly, no polish collection carried that trend into their fall offerings! But the closest one is Dress To Kilt from the Essie fall collection of the same name.

Rainbow Gradient Glitter Placement with Born Pretty Neon Circle Glitter

Hey all! Hope you guys are having a great week! It has been super hectic around here with school stuff and the Mr.'s job change (his last day at the old place was yesterday, eep!) and I am trying to muddle my way through, haha! But I am managing to find a few moments to blog and catch up on social media. Though I am not as active as I wish I were. So thanks to you all who don't give up on me if I don't have the time to be around as much!

Today I have more goodies from Born Pretty. This time around, I went a little more complex and used a glitter pot full of neon circle glitter!

Essie Take It Out Side Fall/Winter 2014 Color Trend

Hi friends! With another Friday upon us, I have the next color from the Pantone fall palette, the first neutral and a good one at that!

Aluminum is a nice warm grey taupe with red undertones. It is a bit different than the traditional grey shades prevalent in the fall and winter. Essie Take It Outside from the Dress To Kilt fall collection captures the shade perfectly.

Fall Hued Saran Wrap Mani Plus Tutorial

Hey guys and gals! Hope your week is going well, mine is great so far, but I am ready for the weekend! So at the beginning of September, I was asked by Nailpolis to create a tutorial for their new e-zine. They wanted me to re-create one of my more popular looks, the Saran Wrap mani I did over the summer. I have wanted to do more tutorials lately and this is by far one of my favorite/easy techniques, so naturally I said yes!

Twinsie Tuesday: Polish Roulette

Hey all! Hope your week started off well yesterday! I am muddling through with a bad case of allergies. Fall weather gets me every time! This week, the Twinsies are taking chances with our manis and doing a polish roulette! We had to grab two polishes at random and make them work. This is definitely not how I do things, lol! I am way to much of a control freak!

So instead of going through my whole stash, I picked two random polishes from my untrieds and came up with these two - O.P.I. Suzi's Got A Swede Tooth and China Glaze Don't Get Derailed.

Essie Style Cartel Fall/Winter 2014 Color Trend

Hey y'all! I am so exited to kick off this season's Color Trend series. It is one of my favorite things to do on my blog. My intention was to post yesterday, but as always, things didn't quite go as planned, so you all get the post today, whoooo!!

If you recall the Pantone fall color palette (if not, here is the link to the original post), we are starting with Royal Blue and I am head over heels for Essie's Style Cartel from the Dress To Kilt fall collection.

Twinsie Tuesday: Biggest Splurge

Hey friends, happy Tuesday! I have some great news! By the end of the month, my husband will have a new career path! This has been the big chaotic thing that has consumed all of our lives for the past few weeks. It is definitely a good thing, but my amazing hubby had to put himself through a lot of stress to get here. I will never be able to express my complete gratitude for all his hard work and dedication.

Okay, enough sap and back to today's post, lol. This week's Twinsie Tuesday theme is our biggest polish splurge. I know some of you may be able to guess what it is before you see the pictures. Out of all the higher end polish lines, I have a special place in my heart for Rescue Beauty Lounge. When I first started blogging Ji had just released the GOMM collection and I was immediately hooked. Nail polish inspired by one of my favorite artists?!?! And the colors were stunning and unlike anything I had seen from a nail polish brand. I vowed I would one day own all of those beautiful little bottles. Two years later and I own all but two. I sadly missed out on Poppy and Jack, but Ghost, Faraway, Bella, Abi and Santa Fe are sitting quite comfortably in my helmer.

Katarina Naturals Nail Polish Remover Review

Hey y'all! I am still all over the place, it seems, and am trying so hard to get back to blogging on a regular schedule. It feels like it has been forever since I have had a normal routine and I do not adjust well to change. But I am really going to focus this week and post like crazy for you guys and have lots of fun stuff for you all to check out. 

So, in that spirit, today I have a little something different to share with you guys! Nail polish remover is an obvious tool for anyone who (even sporadically) paints their nails. It's pretty much a stagnant market, so I was super excited to have the opportunity to try out this new product!

Color Trends For Fall 2014

Hello friends! I didn't forget about you, I promise. I know posting has been sporadic lately and I do apologize. My personal and family life has taken a huge twist this month and it seems to have eaten up all of my blogging mojo. Despite all the changes that are taking place being positive ones, transitioning through everything has been a bit overwhelming and I am definitely feeling it! But I am eager to get back in the swing of things with new fall colors and some really fun stuff to show you all.

This past Tuesday, was the first day of fall and I couldn't be happier with the seasonal change! The fall collections are so good this year! If you are a regular reader, you know that I usually am not a fan of fall and winter collections, they are usually too dark and drab for my taste. Something about the color palette this year has really won me over and I am loving these seasonal hues.

Hey all! Today I have a polish from the beauty brand Pacifica. I have used their products a few times, and have enjoyed the ones I own. I received one of the new nail polishes in my September Ipsy bag and decided to post it up on the blog. 

Side note - I have had my Ipsy subscription for about 6 months now, and I love it. If you are thinking about joining I highly recommend it. I am always really happy with my bags and am able to use at least half of the stuff in it.

Twinsie Tuesday: Accent Nail

Hey all! So I wasn't sure if I was going to make this post today. I have been in a major slump, creatively, and have had nada for inspiration. I had such lofty goals for doing a gradient stamped mani for the Accent Nail theme this week, but when I sat down to do it, all motivation left me. i have been in a rare mood for fall colors (so rare that it has never happened before!) and I decided to do a little fall themed glitter gradient accent nail instead. Not very creative, but it still turned out super pretty!

Takko Lacquer Aphrodisiac

Hello friends! How was your weekend? We had a really nice one, after a glorious cold front blew in Friday night, the weather was fantastic - and for Texas in September, a cold front is a big deal. Yesterday we took the girlie to play Putt Putt for the first time. It was a blast, and no body won! We forgot to take score after the third hole, oops!

Today, I have one last beauty from Takko Lacquer to show you. This one is a previously released polish, but Sheryl threw it in along with the new colors.

Twinsie Tuesday: Summer To Fall Transition

Hi friends! Holy crap, it's September! My kiddo started back to school today, and I am pretty much a hot mess. Time is just flying by waaay too fast for my taste, and this year feels like warp speed. Since it is the first Tuesday of September and the first day of fall is just a few weeks away (the 23rd to be exact), we are going with transitional shades for this week's theme!

When talking about colors that walks the line between summer and fall, I immediately think of teal and peach tones. And since I have been gravitating more towards peach this year, that was the color I went with.

Twinsie Tuesday: Sideways French

Hey all! Today's Twinsie Tuesday post theme is the sideways french. I had zero inspiration for this theme until late last night, lol! Some times the simplest things cause me the most grief! For those of you who aren't too sure what a sideways french mani is, it is done with a thin line of a different color along the sidewalls of your nail beds. I decided to do a little modification and continue that line up along the free edge of my nails and am really surprised at how much I like the result!

Takko Lacquer New Colors Part 1

Hey guys and gals! How is your Monday going? Well I have a post that will potentially make it awesome, or cause anxiety over the lemmings it will create. Who knows!

Those of us in the polishing world know and obsessively love the amazing indie brand, Takko Lacquer. I have been devout fan since the very beginning and while I don't have all the takkitos, I am rather fond of my little army. To this day, I still reach for a Takko when I want a badass mani. They are all dearly loved.

With this newest release, I am convinced all over again that Sheryl has a gift for creating wearable art. The colors are outstanding and unlike any other Indie brand. So grab a napkin, kids. You will be drooling by then end of the post.

Twinsie Tuesday: Classic

Hello friends! Another Tuesday has come around and this week, for the Twinsie Tuesday theme, is Classic! I immediately thought of a dotticure - a classic nail art look and keeping with the theme, I went with a classic color combination.

Sunday Stamped: Neon Kisses with MoYou London Hipster Collection

Hey y'all, happy Sunday! Today's post is a late, we were up all last night watching Oklahoma! out at the Zilker outdoor theater. Yes, I am a musical nerd. Love them! Anyway, instead of being a good blogger and scheduling my post yesterday before we left, I decided to do it today after sleeping in and a late breakfast, lol!

I have two new things to play with, some of the China Glaze summer neons and new MoYou London plates. I used both the neons and the MoYou Hipster collection plate as well in my previous post, here. I personally think the two products are perfect for each other!
