Make a splash on the party scene in relentlessly bright and beautiful neon. Kick up your heels (and your toes) in scorching color and hit the dance floor in style. In fresh, flattering fluorescent hues, these shades are perfect entrance makers that throw open even the most selective club doors. There’s no place like the boom boom room to [...]
I winged it today. (Wung it? Wunged it?) I went hunting for a pretty darker pink cream and found China Glaze Make an Entrance. I have no idea how I came upon this polish. It was part of the Creme Couture Collection way back in 2007 (pre- my re-obsession with nail polish). I used two easy coats then came back in with a dotting tool and China Glaze Pelican Gray and made random dots in one corner of each nail.
My Day 4 mani of the Digit-al Dozen ART theme week is based on a Mark Rothko painting called White Center (Yellow, Pink, and Lavender on Rose) (1950) [image source]. You probably recognize it. It’s one of the most expensive pieces of art ever sold. $72.8 million! What a steal! David Rockefeller bought it for only $10,000 in 1960 and attended the auction when it was sold almost 50 years later. During the auction, I imagine he felt like I did in the last 5 minutes of my husband’s motorcycle listing on eBay! Talk about a nail biter!

Last week I received three colors from the new China Glaze Tranzitions Collection. These polishes react and change color wherever topcoat is applied. Sounds good to me – I figured it would be a quick way to make an interesting mani without a lot of effort. The application and wear of the three polishes I’m showing you today are similar. So let’s see the looks and then I’ll tell you what I think! BTW, I used a flash for the first time in these pics. It seemed to be the best way to capture the color change.
The first mani is Split Perso-Nail-ity with an accent in Modify Me. Split Perso-Nail-ity is a dusty lavender-leaning pink that turns almost magenta with the topcoat. The finish is a cross between a cream and a shimmer…almost satin.

Hi all. I’m still getting back into the groove. I was snowed in yesterday (which is heaven to a very part-time nail blogger). I’m always in such a rush. Today I have some info about an awesome sweepstakes at BigDaddyBeauty.com. Keep reading to the end of the post for details on how to enter! For now…here’s today’s simple mani.
It’s always tough to come up with office-friendly nail art. Plus, let’s face it…it’s a little boring. If I’m posing for nail art pics on a work night, generally I swipe the mani right off and slap on a neutral shade. But alas, the work mani section of the site is languishing. So I went to my Zoya rack and scanned for possibilities. Aha…Addison, Pandora and Farah were sitting there side-by-side!
Today’s mani combines two of my Butter London favorites, Marrow and Shambolic. Marrow is a dark purple with silver shimmer from the Fall 2010 Collection. Shambolic is from the latest 2012 Holiday Collection and it’s a very complex polish. It has ultrafine glitter in dark purple, pink, silver (?), maybe gold (?), maybe blue (??) and larger hexes in silver and purple. The sparkle may even have some holo in it. Whatever it is…I like it.
Happy Saturday! Today I have six polishes from the China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil Collection – the cremes and a jelly (?) Tomorrow I’ll show you the glitters and shimmers. So let’s jump right in.
Escaping Reality is a hot pink creme. You can never have too many hot pink cremes! We’re only a few weeks into Fall and already it seems like ages since I’ve worn a color like this! Formula was great on this one. I used two coats and a coat of Seche Vite. Without the topcoat, it has a satiny, rubbery finish…which is cool…but I was on autopilot and mindlessly slathered on the topcoat!
