Simple Nail Art With China Glaze

Many polish lovers have a few precious polishes that are hard to find. I'm torn between wanting to wear them often & wanting to save them forever. I think this is an excellent compromise. A simple wide stripe of the truly stunning China Glaze 2NITE is framed by China Glaze Liquid Leather. So easy & so pretty!

Quick Accent Nail

I started with a base of China Glaze Roguish Red & then added some metallic lines to both ring fingers with my trusty Gold Sharpie! Simple but I like the look.

OMG Nail Strips Accent Nail

I have never tried any brand of nail strips before! I really like all of the styles that have been coming out in the pas couple of years but I just never got around to trying any. I finally decided to give them a shot with these OMG Nail Strips. I chose a lovely pattern that I know I can't duplicate. Since I'm a newbie at applying strips I decided to just add an accent nail to my current China Glaze Millennium manicure. (Millennium is still amazing; I need more chrome polishes!) The strips have instructions printed on the package so I just followed them. I have to say I was expecting lots of issues but the application was ridiculously easy! I love the design & I can't wait to try more. I have some American Flag Foil Strips I'll be trying out soon for July 4th.

China Glaze Cast A Spell


I won this one from Confessions of a Sarcastic Mom; thanks Destany! This is 2 coats of China Glaze Cast A Spell. It's a lovely dark pine green glass flecked polish. It's a little too dark for me though so I'll be passing this one along to a friend.

Pomegranate Cyberspace & Holographic Stripes!

Pomegranate polishes are big 3free - no toluene, formaldehyde, or DBP. They are also cruelty-free & made in the USA! Pomegranate brushes are very narrow but I know some of you ladies like narrow brushes for more control. They can be purchased from their website for $9.


Pomegranate Cyberspace is an excellent charcoal scattered holographic polish. We all love a good subtle holo! Great formula that covers in just two coats.
 
The next day I added some stripes of China Glaze 2NITE. Sometimes the simple manicures are best. I love this one!

China Glaze Millennium



I've posted about this polish before but I think it deserves another look. It's one of my all time favorites for many reasons. One coat if you're careful & it dries super fast! If you need to get out the door fast China Glaze Millennium is an excellent choice!! This is one coat without topcoat which it doesn't need. You have to avoid brushstrokes but a little practice makes application very easy.

Thanks for reading!

Nail Art Inspired By Confessions of a Polishaholic

I have tons of posts saved of my favorite nail art from fellow bloggers. This manicure was inspired by Confessions of a Polishaholic's Silver Holo Skyscrapers from this summer. I love simple nail art like this, especially when I think it will be a great way to refresh an old manicure. Plus this one is super easy! I don't really love my version but I still love the idea and will probably use it again someday.
I didn't go for a skyscraper look since I used a purple polish, the drop dead gorgeous L.A. Girl Amethyst. I think these pictures show it off even better than my original post since I have a newer camera now. Anyway, I then added uneven stripes of China Glaze OMG. This is super easy and fast! Just make the stripes the width of the brush and vary their length.        

Thanks for the idea Orlica & thanks to all of you for reading!

China Glaze 2NITE


This is China Glaze 2NITE in all it's glory & magnificence! From the much sought after OMG collection. Needs no words. This polish is so incredible that my pictures look like I applied some sort of crazy photo shop effect to my nails but they are accurate. This polish is MAGICAL!

I tried to resist keeping one of these for myself but I just couldn't stand it anymore. I've been wearing it for almost 2 weeks!!! I took it off and then went right back to it twice! This is unheard of behavior in my world. I ususally change my polish at least 3 times a week. Even if I don't have time to change polish, I always add something to it, stamping, flakies, marbling or something. But this one loved all by itself because it's just too gorgeous.

China Glaze Stellar At Disney World


Wow! What a crazy week I've had. Last Sunday I drove from Tulsa to Brooklyn with a very good friend who is moving to Long Island. We got to go to the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit at the Met in Manhattan. It was so amazing that we went through twice! Here are a few of my favorites. Look at the feathers on the one pictured above. Truly spectacular!

Then I flew from New York to Walt Disney World to meet up with Will & his family. Here are my nails with Cinderella's Castle in the Magic Kingdom. China Glaze Stellar is one of my favorite polishes and I knew I wouldn't be able to change my nails for a whole 9 days! This is day number 7 and it still looks great.

Sorry I missed last week's Giveaway Roundup. I'll be posting today's later tonight. I'm so behind on my blog reading since I didn't have my computer for over a week.

Look for some nails coming soon that are inspired by my vacation!

Thanks for reading!

China Glaze Ruby Pumps & Dotting Tools


This is the longest my nails have ever been! I think they are actually too long for me, but it was fun to try out once, just to see. I used the gorgeous China Glaze Ruby Pumps for the base and Quirius Caribbean Turquoise & American Apparel Hassid for the dots. This is the first time I've successfully used my dotting tools and I love this manicure! Thanks again Alisa for getting them for me for Christmas!
