Red why are you such a PITA...

Red polish is classic, really pretty, and not something I wear often. But when I do I am always reminded why I hate red polish so much... which would be the staining you will undoubtedly get on your skin and around your cuticles when cleaning up. And when removing, omg when I took these off my fingers were covered in red! Ugh it was awful. Anyway onto the pictures of the pretty red polish...

Sally Hansen- Heart to Heart 3 coats
Accent Nail- 
Orly- Nite Owl 3 coats
Rhinestones from ebay
all topped with 2 coats of Seche Vite to secure the stones. 

My accent nail is not supposed to be mickey but well kinda looks like it lol oh well, if I want mickey I know it'll look cute with rhinestones.

CopyCat Candy mani

When I saw this mani done by Luv My Lacquer I knew I had to replicate it. Since I had just picked up those exact polishes and had that same plate she used, well why not then. So I went at it, starting with a white base and sponging on my colors, by painting them stripes on the sponge and just dabbing them on, I had to go over them a few times but it was worth it. 

Base color- 
Jordana- white
From cuticle to tip, 
Sinful Colors-
Cotton Candy 
Sweet Tooth 
Sugar Rush
Stamping in Jordan white 
all topped with Seche Vite 

Please just ignore the dry cuticles, it is a never ending battle here. One day its all nice out trying to be spring, then the next it windy and overcast but always dry. That just the desert for ya I suppose.

Pinterest Inspired

The other day before work I really wanted to change my mani, but didn't have much time or inspiration. While perusing Pinterest I saw this mani, and I thought thats pretty and I could do it pretty quickly. I used a blue instead of a green, otherwise tried to stick to her original mani.

Jordana- black 2 coats
Color club- Hydrangea Kiss
Hearts and polka dots made with a dotting tool 
All topped with Seche Vite 

I had 30 minutes before I needed to get ready for work so I grabbed my stuff and got to it. I really like how it turned out. There is a bit of tip wear sorry these were taken after working all day.
