BB Couture Green Goblin

I love this color! I found it very easy to apply, this is 2 coats and no topcoat. We have been using nail polish as rewards for accomplishing goals while starting our business and this was a surprise present from Ashley for making it to the next round of the Tulsa Entrepreneurial Spirit Award competition. Thanks Ashley! The first 2 pictures are indoors and the rest were shot outside.

BB Couture Electric Avenue

We did a order from Overall Beauty and now have our first BB Couture's!
I ordered Electric Avenue. I fell in love with it when I saw it on The Polish Addict's blog. I couldn't get it out of my head, but I wasn't quite sure what to expect since I knew a lot of people were having application issues. But I'm so glad I bought it. It's now one of my favorite colors!
It is a gorgeous pale light blue color. I didn't find it hard to apply, but it did take 5 coats to build bottle color.
April will post her pictures of her BB Couture Polish very soon! Hint it's a green creme, which are my favorites. I will definitely be trying it soon!

Sally Girl - Peabody

This is a very pretty color, but I didn't really like it with my skin tone. You can pick them up for about $1 at Sally Beauty Supply. That is my dog Wally Thor. He makes me happy everyday! Ashley used this color to do her first french manicure. I think it turned out pretty sweet.
Thanks for looking.

China Glaze - For Audrey

This is one of my favorite colors!
First two pictures I took outdoors, the third one was taken indoors.
This is two coats.

China Glaze OMG

My boyfriend and I decided that we will call this one Baby Unicorn Blood!
If I could only have one nail polish this would be it.
This is two coats. It looks like a pale grey shimmer in low light and then you go in bright light or sunshine and it's MAGIC! I thought I was gonna have a wreck the first time I wore it while driving, because I kept staring at my hands. Embarrassingly I actually said OMG when I started applying it.

Masquerade Ball

Ashley and I were recently invited to a masquerade ball. We weren’t planning on attending and then inspiration struck. I had 2 very similar dresses with great colors. We each wore one and matched our nails to the 5 different colored stripes in each dress. It was fun!



From pinky to thumb on both hands in the picture below China Glaze for Audrey, China Glaze Entourage, OPI Blue My Mind, Finger Paints Yellow Bikini and China Glaze Recycle, all with Nail Tek Foundation II as a matte topcoat.

See they match the stripes!

Here are Ashley’s colors. From pinky to thumb on both hands Color Club Blue Light, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Jumpin' Jade, OPI Red, China Glaze Solar Power and China Glaze Recycle. Also with Nail Tek Foundation II.

Introduction and 4th of July manicures!

Hello, everybody.
This is Ashley. We wanted to let everybody know a little bit about us and why we started a nail polish blog before we continued with the posts. I'm 21 and work at the Tulsa City-County Library.
I've always enjoyed wearing nail polish and a few months ago I started making my older sister (April) wear it. April never thought she'd wear anything other than conservative colors. Now she wants the craziest nail polish available!
We also wanted to tell you about our new business. We recently started 4BrooksDesign, making beautiful decorative concrete. Check out some of our stuff at www.facebook.com/4BrooksDesign.
Here's a picture of a concrete cakestand!


Here are our 4th of July Manicures.
This is April's. She used OPI Blue My Mind with stripes of China Glaze Raspberry Festival and L.A. Girl's Silver Nail Art Brush.




I used China Glaze For Audrey as a base, and on my striped nails Sally Hansen's Vanilla Bean, China Glaze For Audrey, Ruby Kisses' Caribbean Blue and OPI Red
