Quick Chrstmas Nails

Through most of my 20's I was a bit of a humbug about the holiday season. Then every year around January 2nd or 3rd I'd realized I missed it all. So for the past several years I've made to invite my family over to decorate the tree, listen to some holiday music, & drink some hot chocolate. Much more fun!
Anyway, here's my second set of holiday nails for this year. I used an unknown Toma that I really love. It's a one coat wonder! Then I just added some red & green rhinestones for a bit of seasonal festiveness.

Thanks for reading!

Toma Purple Mist To Grey Mist & A French Manicure

I've never posted NINE pictures of any polish before, but this one deserves it! Toma Mood Changing Purple Mist to Grey Mist is one of the most unique colors I've ever seen! I have no idea how to describe it so I'll just let you look at the pretty pictures. Gorgeous!






I did a french manicure using China Glaze LOL. I didn't end up liking the color combination as much as I thought I would though
.

I would buy this in a heartbeat if I could find it anywhere!!! What do you think ladies, should we petition Mad Beauty, who took over Toma, to bring this color back?

Thanks for reading!

Toma Forest Green to Teal Mood Changing and Blackboard Nail Art


This is another Toma that I borrowed from my friend Kim Jantz. It's says mood changing on the bottle and it does change with heat but nothing like the recent Claire's polishes. The name really says it all with this one, sometimes it looks forest green and sometimes it looks more teal. It ALWAYS looked drop dead gorgeous though! I can't find anywhere to buy this one online or I would be getting it immediately. If you love green this one is very unique! Most of the time it looked more forest green on me but I tried to capture the more teal side in the next pictures.

Man, looking at these pictures again makes me want to go put it on right now! The color really reminded be of a blackboard from elementary school, so I decided to write some of the alphabet in white "chalk". I used my trusty Migi Nail Art Pen for the letters.

Awesome. Then I tried China Glaze Matte Magic on top and I think it looks even more like a blackboard. I love it when the manicure that you've thought up in your head actually turns out the way you imagined!

I have one more Toma to show you and it's also a real stunner! I'll post it sometime soon. If anyone knows where to get these old Tomas, please let me know! I've tried 3 and they are some of the most gorgeous colors I've ever seen!

Thanks for reading!

Unknown Toma, Blue Leopard Nails & Awards


This is a Toma that I borrowed from my friend Kim Jantz. No label to identify the color, but I know it's from 2000-2006. She did graphic design for a beauty supplier during those years and has tons of OPI's, CNDs from that time period. Were there any amazing colors from that time period that I should go hunt for at her house?
This is a lovely navy blue shimmer that never looks black. Very pretty!

I'm not really into leopard print but I hadn't used that Konad image (M57) before so I just went for it. I kind of love it! I used Maybelline Matte Blue for stamping.

I don't think Mr. Acorn approved though. I don't know why, but this picture cracks me up!

Thanks to all of the lovely ladies from around the world who have tagged me lately! Here's a list of their blogs. I love finding new nail polish blogs!!!

Toma Chromicolor

This is the second nail polish I ever chose for myself! It is my go to color if I am in a major hurry because it is opaque in one coat and dries in about a minute! Lovely silvery purple chrome metal nails! YAY! Not sure what the actual name of the color is because the sticker was missing when I purchased it. The first two pictures were taken in sunlight and the third indoors.
