Today I’m wearing Essie Sleek Stick nail appliques in So Haute! (No, I’m not shouting that sentence at you…So Haute! actually has an exclamation point in the name!) (There, that last one…I was shouting.) I’ve not gone ga-ga over nail strips because I do nail art. And I’ve always thought polish strips were for people who don’t do nail art. But the texture on this design is really spectacular and I was surprised by how much I loved the look. On the first trip out of the house wearing them…I bet I got a half a dozen compliments! You can see full-sized pics in the gallery at the end of the post.
Hi all! I’ve seen so many cool “Christmas Sweater” designs lately and I wanted to try one. After doing a bunch of practice stamps…I quickly realized that my nailbeds are just too small for elk. So I pressed ahead with a stamped, not-so-Christmasy, not-so-sweatery mani using Zoya Envy and Ziv.
Today I have a simple swatch of OPI Designer Series (DS) Mystery. I was all primed and ready to put some serious gold dots on this baby…but after I got it on, I knew it didn’t need any fancy stuff.
I have a simple swatch for you today. The collection posts really take a lot out of me! Course, it’s not like I’m fighting a fire or running a marathon…but it is a lot of polishes to swatch for just one post! I really appreciate what bloggers like The Polishaholic do every day! Anyway, after modeling each of the 12 colors in the China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil Collection and working on The Mani Cave (Yes!), I didn’t have time for any fancy nail art. However today’s color, Butter London Two Fingered Salute is fabulous all on it’s own!!
Okay…I’ve taken the easy road the last two days. But it’s tough to do intricate manis when Mr. Workplaypolish expects me to help him install the wainscoting in The Mani Cave. I’m like “What? I might break a nail?” I know resistance is futile. So last night we started installation. Can I say awe-some? I’m so excited about this development and can’t wait for you to see it next Wednesday.
In the meantime, I have a new polish from the China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil Collection, Creative Fantasy. I’ll review it on its own when I post swatches from the line. For now…suffice it to say it’s a cool purple jelly that I wore for three whole days! There’s no more ringing endorsement from a nail blogger than that!
