Digit-al Dozen Does Festiveness: Jolly Skittles

It’s Day 3 of the Digit-al Dozen holiday theme week. This is my THIRD try at a Day 3 mani. One of these days I’ll have to post a nail art blooper reel. Oy! Just imagine dip dye nails that look bloody, not pretty. Anyway, I decided I was being too elaborate and frankly, I’m not an elaborate girl. So I settled on something simple. I call it “Jolly Skittles”.

Sinful Colors Neptune

Shew…between my day job, daily posts and decorating The Mani Cave…my schedule is packed. I’d hoped to bring you the first half of the China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil Collection swatches – but I didn’t get that far. So instead I’m bringing you a swatch from the archives, Sinful Colors Neptune, a beautiful medium dusty blue with tons of silver shimmer.

All Together Now: The Zoya 2012 Ornate Collection

As I was doing my manis over the last week using the polishes from the Zoya Ornate Collection, I was sure to capture a swatch of each one. I thought I’d combine them all into one bonus post. In addition to each photo, I’ve included the description from the Zoya site and a link to the mani I used it in.

Check, Please: Zoya Electra and Storm

I’m still working my way through the Zoya Ornate Collection. Today I have Zoya Electra, a silvery, holographic bar glitter, and Storm, a full-coverage holographic black. These are both beautiful polishes. I haven’t been a fan of bar glitter in the past, but Electra reminds me of Christmas Tree tinsel…so big points for that! Today’s mani is a checkerboard pattern.

Dashing Diva Carnivale

No. I didn’t just call myself a Dashing Diva. That’s the brand of nail appliques I’m sporting in today’s mani. Why’s everyone got to be a diva these days? (Says the girl with hundreds of bottles of polish!)
