Sweet Valentine's Nail Art

Something a bit more traditional today when it comes to Valentine's day.  The stamping on my index finger is not as clear as I would have liked but I just didn't have the time to redo it.

Stay tuned to see what else is in store for Valentine's nail art.

Tainted Love

Well, Valentine's Day is this Friday so I decided to do a selection of looks this week around that theme.  Today's is a bit of an "nontraditional" look.  I found this topcoat by Salon Perfect at Walmart the other day.  It is called Hearts A Flutter.  Beautiful sort of fuchsia glitter with gold hearts in a clear base.  I was trying to determine what color to layer it over and finally decided on black to make the colors really pop.  I love the result!

What do you think? Is this a look you would wear for Valentine's Day?

Black and White Damask Nails

I am in love with the classy look of damask print.  I have small touches of it allover my "office".  When I ordered the Pueen plates a while back, I didn't even realize this was one of the images!  

Base Color: Zoya Purity
Stamp Color: Zoya Black Swan
Image Plate: Pueen 44
What do you think of this look? Any other color combo suggestions??

Snow Day!!

I had another snow day today!  While I often feel overwhelmed with work, I am very thankful to be working for a company that puts the safety of their employees first.  

Since I had an unexpected day off, I had some time to do my nails and try out some new polish.  I also purchased some stamping plates before Christmas and have not had much of a chance to play with them either so today was the day! 

I started with a base of Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud on all except my middle finger.  My bottle seems a bit wattery so I actually used 3-4 thin coats then topped it with Seche Vite.  My middle finger is 3 thin coats of Julep Love from the February box.  I used Pueen plate 35 for the design on my ring finger with nails inc. victoria for the stamp color.  Finally, I added some studs from Born Pretty Store that I painted with victoria so they would blend in with the look.

What? A new post? FINALLY!

It has been another crazy period around here!  Job is keeping me busier than I would like in the evenings so I haven't had much time to do my nails...though somehow I keep acquiring polish...not sure how that is happening.... And on top of that my computer has a virus (which I'm currently trying to get rid of) so everything takes an insane amount of time and frustration!
Anyway, thanks to a "small" winter storm here in the midwest, I don't have to work today! So for the first time in weeks I retreated to my hideout for some swatching.
More than a year ago, I came across this post by The Polished Perfectionist and fell in love with a england She Walks in Beauty and promptly ordered it.  I have worn it a couple of times but I don't think I ever posted pics here.  This week I was cruising the makeup aisles at Walmart and came across Maybelline Gilded Rose  and immediately  picked it up thinking it looked very close to a dupe.
Swatched today over Zoya Neely and if there is a difference, it is very slight.
a england is on the index and pinky fingers, Maybelline on the middle two.

List of where to buy a england  polish based on country can be found here on their website, Maybelline can be found at most drug stores and mass retailers.
