Double Zebra w/ a little sparkle

Just a quick post today, but with a ton of pictures. When I started this mani I originally wanted to use do a black and white zebra simple right? Well I picked a frosty white to use so I started with my base of Orly Nail Armor and went to work with Orly Au Champagne, Well after the first coat on both hands I waited a few mintutes to let dry... Normal right? Well a few more minutes go by and it just wasn't drying. It was still tacky even on nails that I did a super thin coat, So I scrapped that idea maybe I will try Au Champagne again but I was kind of in a hurry so plan b it was. Which was Zoya Dove with black and pink zebra and holo glitter on top. Turned out pretty good so I was happy... And here are my pictures...

Used: Base coat of Orly Nail Armor
2 coats Zoya- Dove
Stamped w/ Mash # 57
Using Wet N Wild Megalast- Tronicalia
then Wet N Wild- Black Creme on top. 
1 coat FC Savvy- Touch of Glitter
And finally topped with Seche Vite
And these pics below are before cleanup so don't mind them.  I really like the Mash plates my only problem is that the full nail images are just barely wide enough for my thumb nail. On my right hand I placed it good but on my left hand I placed it just slightly too far over ugh it's annoying but not too bad. Most of the time I can get it just right just not that day.

Smoky Canvas + Glass Slipper = Ooohh Pretty

I picked up Revlon's Smoky canvas not too long ago on clearance, at first I wasn't going to get it but I kept going back to look at it, it's not quite grey but not quite beige either. It's a true taupe color, but does look grey in most lighting. This color is just so pretty on its own, I wasn't sure if I would like it on sometimes I have the intention to paint a color then when I start I just don't like it at all, but this was not the case with this color. Applied very easily with two coats, I had expected it to be thin and maybe need to be built up but not the case. I probably could of gotten away with one thick coat instead of two thinner ones but I pretty much always use two coats.

To add a little something I decided to add Sally Hansen Glass Slipper on top, I love this polish its just so pretty, White Flackies need I say more... ok on to the pics

And after wearing this for a couple days I was fed up with my longer nails, and cut them back down.

Last Valentine Mani

So this mani is a bit simpler than the last one I showed you. It turned out pretty subtle, I hadn't meant too but was really happy with it. 

This is 2 coats of Color Club Rev'd Up stamped with Bundle monster plates using China Glaze Velvet bow, and an NYC dark purple sorry I'm not sure of the name and not around my stash to go check. 
Rev'd up applied so well, and pretty I almost just left it at that it was so shiny all by itself, but I could't I had to add my stamps on there too.

Valentine Ombre

This was actually my first try at an ombre nails and I wasn't even planning on it just kind of happened because I wanted to do a gradient of pinks, Well of course that would mean a ombre but well I I didn't even think of it that way until I was done lol. Yea I know I'm a little slow sometimes...

Here they are, I took a ton of pictures of this one too hope you all enjoy...
