Thundering Waters

So I know it's been a while.  I went on vacation a few weeks ago and so for now I'm going to show you my nails I did for my trip to Niagara Falls.  I got several compliments from the locals which is always a treat. 

I basically used the "grunge" technique with less grunge-y colors.  I wanted it to look like the rushing water going over the falls so I used several shades of blue and some white.  I absolutely love the effect!  

What do you guys think?

Bohemian Luster Chrome!

Last weekend I got a couple of polishes from the new China Glaze Bohemian Luster Chrome line.  As most of my fellow lacquer addicts I have been lusting after most of this collection since I first heard about it.  I was very fortunate that the ladies working at Sally's are enablers and brought out the fall collections for me to preview when I went in there last weekend.  so of course I had to get some.  I picked up Deviantly Daring and Unpredictable.  

Deviantly Daring is a lovely blue green duochrome.  The color flash isn't as strong on this one as it is with some of the others in the collection, but there is a definite color shift from blue to green.  It's just not as obvious as some of the other duochromes on the market.  

Unpredictable is green with a blue shift around the edges. The also flashes blue in lower light. Out of the 2 this one is definitely my favorite.  I wouldn't say green is my favorite but I always gravitate towards greens and this beauty is no exception.  I'm sure I will be picking up the rest of this collection eventually.  I just can't resist!  What do you guys think?

Glitter on Glitter!

I'm so glad things are finally calming down.  I spent this past weekend at the Ohio State Fair Llama Show.  We did pretty good and had a pretty good time, but I'm glad things are getting back to normal.  I wanted something down there that would wear well, and I wanted to use some of my new glitters from the new China Glaze Safari Collection. 

I used I Herd That and I'm Not Lion (China Glaze).  I got tons of compliments, and will definitely be using this techinique again.

Also bonus baby llama! T-Lynn!

Coping with shorter nails

I've been absent a lot lately it seems, but I'm going to try and post more.  I had been working on growing out a mended broken nail for the past month or so and it finally was to a point where I could trim it back without serious pain.  Because of that I had to trim them all back, so now my nails are much shorter.  Oh what I would give to have long and elegant nail beds, but I don't. Oh well they don't bother me too much at this length.  Enough of my sob story, and onto the pretty stuff!

I used Wrapped in Rubies (Essie) then added some decals I got at Sally Beauty Supply buy one get one free, and then slapped on a coat of As Gold As It Gets (Essie).
