Milani Checkered

Omg is this really my first post this December? I have been so busy, working in retail at this time of year I'm lucky to get sleep. So I usually have no time to set aside for my nails or posting. My last few manis I've worn for at least 5 days, which I never do, but I just don't have the time lately. *sniff sniff* I just can't wait for January and having more time yay! So bare with me please. Today I have a mani I did one a few hours before having to work. I think it took me like 30 min or so. I was seriously trying to hurry since I had to shower after finishing. Gotta love Seche Vite for that, if you let each coat dry then put Seche Vite over it all and let that sit for 10 min or so you should be ok to shower if your careful.

Anyway onto the mani...

Base Coat
Milani- HD 3 coats
stamped in 
Ulta- Celebutante
Nina ultra Pro- Blue LaLa
China Glaze- Want my Bawdy 
1 coat of Seche Vite before stamping, and 1 coat after. 

My pictures do not do this polish justice it's a cross between a scattered and a linear holo. Just in some lights though. Most of the time it just looks like a silver sparkle. Either way it is so pretty.

Urban Outfitters Holo

So unless you've been hiding under a rock the past couple of weeks or so, you've probably already seen the Urban Outfitters holo polishes popping up all over the place. There are three colors a pink, green, and silver all very strong holo and super easy to apply. They covered well in 2 thin coats with no cuticle drag.

Last I seen these were sold out of their website, but stores probably still have a bunch in store, I know mine did when I went.
Here they are in all their glory, all lined up nice and pretty. From what I've seen these are just slightly more holo than the Color Club ones, I don't have the Color Club holo collection since there isn't anywhere for me to buy them locally, So I am happy to have found these. Ok enough of my talk onto the nails... 

Base Coat 
Urban Outfitters UO- Green Holo 2 coats
Stamped in Wet N wild- Black Creme 
Accent Nail
Ulta- Hide & Go Sequins 3 coats
Stamped in UO- Silver Holo 
All Topped with 2 coats of Seche Vite, well just because I wanted to there was no need for 2 coats I just did. 

The picture directly below, was supposed to be in direct sunlight but the wind and an umbrella got in the way, but I had to show it even in the shade you can really see the holo. 
There are some pictures slightly blurry I did that on purpose, I liked the way the holo looked not in focus. 

Thats all for now enjoy...

NOTD- Black Friday

Today I have a quick NOTD, I did Thanksgiving night. I was planing to do some sort of turkey nails but never had the time to actually sit down and try. So seeing as how I had to work at 5:30 on friday morning I went to something quick and simple. I was still wearing my birthday nails that makes *gasp* 6 days for that mani. I never wear any mani for that long. They were already chipping and everything I just never had the time to re-do. Ok onto the pictures...

Base Coat
China Glaze- Want My Bawdy 3 coats 
Color Club- Glitter Wonderland 3 coats
All topped with Seche Vite 

I was worried I might mess these up yesterday but they fared really well, A little bit of tip wear but I expected that, always happens when I'm on register. Thats all for now.

Birthday Nails!

So yesterday was my birthday, Yay. I am now 23, I still can't believe it. Just crazy, but I love birthdays and this one was very fun. And onto my nails for my day, I had originally planned on some type of skittles with glitter and balloons and something else. I didn't have a full plan yet, then well I just didn't have it in me to do any of that and changed even my colors. I have been fighting a cold for the past 5 days and yesterday was the first day I was feeling better so on sat when I did my nails I changed almost everything about the plan.

The only thing I kept was the cupcake. I knew I wanted a cupcake for my birthday! Yay and my boyfriend made my cupcakes so I had too... Here's a pic of them...
He made them all by himself, and so yummy

And onto the nails...

Base Coat
Zoya- Charla 3 coats
Leopard print-
Opi- My boyfriend Scales Walls
Zoya- Neeka

Accent Nail
Zoya- Neeka 2 coats

For the Leopard print I use a small dotting tool, the cupcake was made using a striper brush and a big dotting tool. 

Even though it's not quite what I had imaged I am very happy with what I came up with.
