Ivory and Coral

I have been in love with this stamp image for some time but really haven't used it much for whatever reason.  I got the idea in my head to try a mani with an ivory and coral color scheme.  I have been looking for the perfect ivory shade for a while, not too brown, not too white, just the right mix.  I think I finally found it in OPI's My Vampire is Buff.  This is actually the first time I had tried the polish and I LOVE it!  No formula issues, it isn't sreaky, two coats to perfection....
Anyway, then I chose the scroll design from the  Bundle Monster BM-314  plate and stamped using Finger Paints Gimme Some Sugar.  I am in love with this color combo and will likely pair these two again in the future!

Dandelions and Roses

Due to my ever-growing pile of yet-to-be-swatched polish, I'm trying not to buy as much lately as I used to. Meaning, I'm trying not to buy an entire collection as soon as it hits the far so good...
With the China Glaze Avant Garden collection, there weren't many that spoke to me.  I have been really drawn to white and nude colors lately, so Dandy Lyin' Around ended up being the only one I bought (at least so far).  Formula wise, this one was a little tough for me to work with, I ended up needing three coats and still had some patchy areas. I still love the delicate white shimmer of this polish though...

  Then I added roses from the BM-323 plate and Zoya Lara.  It ended up being perfectly girly and sweet!

OPI What Wizardry Is This Swatch and Review

When the new Oz collection came out, What Wizardry Is This? was really the only one that "spoke" to me.  I loved some of the early swatches I saw and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one.  It didn't disappoint!  The hardest part for me is letting it get fully dry, I'm so addicted to Seche because it dries fast and I can get on with whatever I'm doing that not using it is tough for me sometimes.  It does take it longer than the "average" polish to dry, I assume because of the texture.  I was really skeptical of the texture, not sure my OCD could handle for my nails not to be smooth, but I actually like it.

I'm Back...In Black!

Sorry for the long absence guys, life has been insane lately!  I hope things are finally starting to settle down now and that I can get back to a regular posting schedule.  This one is fairly simple, but after such a long absence, it had to be black, right?
This one is from a couple of weeks ago.  Nails Inc in noho.  Shown here with two coats, no topcoat.  I didn't expect to love this as much as I did, and it wore very well for no topcoat!
