Polish Haul

Okay, here I am going to go through all the polishes I own to date. I do have some new ones coming in the mail as well but they can wait till next time. Since I am really in the mood to get this done. But I am not going to show all my polishes at once. I plan on doing only a few polishes a day. That way I can keep going and not have huge gaps with my purchases and postings. It again has just been crazy though. I kinda went way overboard the past couple of weeks. Like making a stop at my Sally's, Ulta, and my local nail supply store 3 times in one week. Then ordering about 12 polishes online, and then I unfortunately went into my local Ross, and they had some awesome Color Club products that I didn't see last time I was there. So now that's another stop on my nail polish route. YIKES!!! But its ok, I have the support of my friends and my loving husband. He's so cute, I hurt my finger really bad at work last week and tore a huge chunk of my nail off. After I told him how pissed I was that I did that he goes "OH NO!!! What about painting your nails!" - :) Like I said very very cute. Oh and also I plan on making a link so you guys can see what colors I own all together. There will be a description w/ name and colors in it if necessary, a pic of the bottle and then a swatch. That way you can fully appreciate every color, as I do. Also I just wanted you all to know the reason behind me showing swatches only on nail wheels, is because I really can't and don't want to waste the polish on my nails. It's very pointless to paint even one hand one color take a pic or two and then take it right off. I already do that when I want to do different designs. And I only do that on 1 finger anyways. So that is why, I love the nail wheels, I need to buy more. I only have China Glaze on them right now, but I need wheels for all the misc. colors, and my color club collection, since that's my new 2nd favorite brand. And that's the 2nd brand I have the most colors in. So I can't wait to show you guys what I have. And as always I hope you enjoy.

 This is Thunderbird. And my husband LOVES this color. We have a 97' Thunderbird that he is planning to fix up. Yeah I know why not just get rid of it. Believe me Ive been trying but with no success :(. Anyways this is the exact same color as our car, so he wants me to wear it all the time. hehe, but it is a gorgeous color. So in secret I hope he does fix the T-Bird so I can wear this polish while driving in it. I do miss cruising down the strip in my Cinnamon. That's the cars name.

 This is Snow Globe. I really really like this glitter, but I don't love it. I feel I have a lot of dupes for it. But it really is different then what I have. Just wish my camera would take better pictures.

 AAHH, I love this color. This is Techno. Very gorgeous glitter top coat. Just a bunch of rainbow glitters big and small.

I saw this color on a ring, and I fell in love with it. Again my camera isn't working so well anymore, but in real life this is a gorgeous holographic pink glitter. Reminds me of bubble yum watermelon bubble gum with glitter.

Ok everyone, I have been super super bad about keeping up with my blog. Because I have bought over 20 new polishes since my last post :D I know right! Its been crazy at work, back to 1 day off again. But I need to get these swatches, and mani pics and my collection updated. Also I was wondering if you guys think I should put a spreadsheet of all the polishes I own. Its funny, because my friend Lindsay has a spreadsheet, and she told me that I should start one. I wrote her back saying nah, I dont think Im gonna get that many polishes. But boy was she right, and I wrong. I unfortuneately have all the colors I own memorized which is even sadder, but a spreadsheet with swatches next to them sounds like a great side page on here. Let me know what you think. Well until I decide I guess I better get to lookin for all the new polishes I got and get them on here. So be right back......... hehe.

Some Accessories

Here are the rest of the pictures I didn't get to show last time. These are mostly just some accessories I have, and tools I use. Just wanted to let you have a lil glimpse of what I got. Hope you like it.

 Okay here's some of the glitters I use for Decorating my nails either in plain mani form or in acrylic form. I have made acrylics out of all these glitters and believe it or not they actually work. I got this case at a craft store and I was super disappointed because then I went to Wal-Mart and they have this same thing only in a bigger count :( and for a cheaper price :0!

 Here it is. Half of the bottom row is acrylic while the entire bottom row are my glitter acrylics. The rest is yep you guessed it FIMO'S. I bought the 100 count of fimo canes off eBay and now I have tons of fimos everywhere. I cut them myself which isn't really hard to do. I just used an extremely sharp steak knife with no edging to it. Other then a little force they cut like "Butter."

Flower Fimo's
 Here's a closeup of some of the Fimo's. Yeah some are a little big, but honestly it gives it character. So I don't mind.

 Here's a close up of my glitter Starry Moon Acrylic.

 Fruit Fimo's Closeup

 Here is a baggy of some other tools I have. In here I have my konad stuff, my dotting tools, some fimo canes, toothpicks for water marbling. Glitter, nail polish pen corrector brushes and a file.

 One of my best investments ever. My polish wheels. That way you can see the colors without me having to paint all my nails, take a picture, then take the polish off and put on another color. These are really cheap in eBay, and I LOVE THEM!!!

 I found this at CVS, I saw some other blogger's recommended it and I'm glad they did. I use this all the time, especially at work so my cuticles don't dry out from the hot plastic and boxes I mess with all day. I carry it in my pocket at all times, but it was a little pricey. I paid $9 for this bottle. But I think it was a great investment. My nail beds thank me everyday.

 Did someone say Water Marble?  These are just some of the main tools I use when I do my water mani's. My lil party cups, and my glass jar of polish remover, with the eyeliner brush to clean around the edges. Love it!!!

I got this cuticle oil at Christmas, its not my favorite. It's supposed to smell like Apple, but smells like Watermelon instead. I do like it, but scented stuff makes me break out sometimes, and I'm too nervous to keep using this in case I touch my face and start getting itchy bumps everywhere. Other blogger's love this product, just don't think its for me.

A little off topic and then back again

Okay I know these are completely off topic, but my good friend Jennifer messaged me on Facebook wanting to show me these dresses. I LOVE DISNEY Princess's and I wish I knew about these before I got married. Because I would have definately tried each and everyone of them on and would have had a huge struggle between my 3 favorites. Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Belle. But all these dresses are absolutely gorgeous. Theres also a link to check it out yourself, that way you can see just the dress, shoes and accessories.

And now to some nail swatches.

 Here is Hyper Haute from the Tronica Collection.

 Hologram Tronica Collection. In this picture you can see some of the hologram, but in the sun you can really see it. I know Ive mentioned it before, but I dont want people to diss this color, it really is pretty. And yes it DOES have holographic effects to it. But it is your opinion, and mine is I LOVE HOLOGRAM!!!

 This is a rare color, its called Fortune Teller. This is personally not one of my favorites. And China Glaze made a dupe of it called Ick-a-Body. The colors are exactly the same even the glitter colors, the only difference is the glitter in Ick-a-Body is smaller and theres a lot more of it. Other then that the 2 colors are the same.

 AAhhh, Secret Peri-Wink-Le. Such a great Spring color, I will be doing a water marble with this color and a few othere colors for Easter. Pics, and possibly a tutorial soon.

Blue Paradise, the name says it all.

My polish's, supply's and accessories. Oh and some swatches!

Okay, here I am just going to get right to the point. No new designs Im afraid except for 1. Since I split my 2 days off, I will only be showing 1 mani and some pics of my polish's, supply's ect. This way you can see what I have to work with. Which unfortuneately is a lot, but my creativity is very limited with thte no nail polish at work thingy. Which I can only dream at the moment will change in the next few months, but we will see. So for know enjoy the pics and I will see you next time. Thanks.

In this box, I have 66 China Glaze nail polishes. WOW, Thats all I can say... WOW!!!
You might also be able to see my Nfu-Oh's, Orly Cosmic FX Collection, Milani, and my Deborah Lippmann. <3 that one!

Here are just some of the extra polishe I got. Before I realized how much I love China Glaze. And yeah those are a crap load of 2 Way art polishes. I got them off ebay, everyone was only getting like the 15 or 24. Not me I got the 42 pack, hehe. Theres some Pure Ice, Sinful Colors, Zoya, Orly, Sally Hansen, Wet n' Wilds, OPI, Icing, and Del Sol. Oh and Bubble White, I saw Sayanythingbr00kes video on that stuff, I bought it for a $1.99 and fell in love. So now the $5 jar is completely worth it.

Okay well the pic thingy isnt working at the moment, so I will have to leave this post as is till it starts working again. Sorry for the mishap. Until next time.

Okay Im gonna try to win this giveaway, so I am posting a link for everyone to have a chance as well. To anyone that enters and posts could win Deborah Lippmanns: Glitter in the Air, and if you post it to your blog you will get 5 mystery polishes. Good luck to everyone!!!


Updates, just talkin and playin around

Okay, so your probably wondering where the heck are all my updated pics. Well.... I will be putting those up next week. I actually have 2 days off next week and I am going to spend them playing with all the new polishes I got. I havent had 2 days off in a row in almost 2 months. So a full weekend is way overdue for me. But I recently bought 3 more china glaze polishes from sally's. Im so sad though, there's only 1 more color I really want from the Tronica collection and I havent been able to find it since sallys had them out. I want the Techno Teal color. So pretty!!! I really dont care that this collection isnt as holographic as OMG and Kaleidescope because in the sun which is where I plan to be mostly this summer, it looks AMAZING!!! Seriously, when I bought hologram I tried it out in the store, ande was disappointed but I bought it anyway just to have it. But when I left the store and saw my nail in the natural sunlight, I fell in LOVE. I will definately be posting pics of it next week. To me these colors are a mix between OMG and Kaleidescope, it just depends on the lighting. Thats my opinion and Im sticken to it, hehe. But believe me I was just as disappointed when I saw the collection too. So dont be all, What? that collection sucks! Nope don't wanna hear it, haha. Well to conitnue with the updates, Ive also been playing around with some new designs, and I will now post some pics of what I came up with. Ive gotten inspiration from other bloggers and things like that, so if you think these look like other peoples designs then Im sorry, but Im tired, it's late, and I just got off work and don't feel like looking peoples links or names up at the moment, but if you know who then you can thank them for me, but to everyone and their inspirations THANK YOU!!! You all give me great ideas to play around with. So here's some new pics:

My new Deborah Lippmann: Across the Universe, so BEAUTIFUL!!!

Here we have Zoya Pippa w/ Nfu-Oh #40 and Matte Magic
I wish the flakies would show up better, it is so pretty in real life. Think Im going to do this on my toes, make them nice and bright.

Here we have just Sally Hansen's Black Out with Deborah Lippmann: Across the Universe on top, also w/ Matte Magic. Love this combo.

And again Sally Hansen Black Out, but with Nfu-Oh #40 and matte magic. It just makes the glitters and flakies stand out more. So awesome!

5. Golden Enchantment

6. Wagon Trail

8. C-C-Courage

Nfu-Oh and some random's

Okay, I have seen some youtube guru's with these polishes and I had to have them. I asked several people and they said they bought them online at other retail stores, but I saw some youtubers say they found them from fabulousstreet.com. And there they were all the cutest polishes I could ever want. I feel every girl should have their entire collection. I mean look at these bottles. Totally ADORABLE!!! Wish I knew about these earlier I would have given them to my friends as gifts for my wedding party. I only had 1 bridesmaid but still I definately would have gotten her some of these. But anywho to get on with the night. Heres some the first colors that I got. Nfu-Oh # 40 and # 63. Love the flakies and the holo's. Hope some day I will post a picture of the entire Nfu-Oh collection in my posession. Man that's a
lot of nail polish ;)

 # 40

 # 63

 I absolutely love the backs of these as well. The dress design for nail polish is so adorable.

Okay now here come the random's:

Okay I follow a blog called Chloes Nail's http://chloesnails.blogspot.com/. She is completely awesome and has the most amazing nail collection. So this was a design inspired by her, and I can't wait to see what she come's up with next and what inspiration she can give me and other's.

Sally Hansen Black Out and China Glaze Dorothy Who? and Pom Pom.

And yet again more water marble

 China Glaze Sexagon, Sinful Color's Let's Talk and Sally Hansen Black Out. The base is Sexagon.

 These are the same colors only the base is Sinful Colors Dream On.

 These colors remind me of Cinderella's dress. The colors are all from China Glaze, they are Hologram, 2Nite, and Frosty.
Okay that's all I have time for today. I will be doing new mani's this weekend and posting some awesome pics. I recently recieved Deborah Lippmanns Across the Universe. So expect some pretty cool mani's with that one.
