Nicole by OPI Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam with Cult Nail Hypnotize Me!

Hey guys!

I am interrupting the E.L.F. swatches because this manicure if so awesome, haha.

I'm finally getting around to wearing some of my Kardashian Kolors. My favorite of the colors I picked up is definitely this one. Khloe Had A Little Lam Lam is called an emerald green, but it is more of a really dark teal color. I. Love. This. Color. This is my color. Blue/green, creme, awesome. Loves it!

This is two coats of KHALLL.

THEN I spotted my beautiful Cult Nails Hypnotize Me in my untried pile, which I have tested but not had the opporunity to wear yet. I said to myself "Self, this will be perfect on the lovely teal. Do it." And since I am good at following directions, I did.

Then angels started singing "Haaaaaaaaaaaahhhh" because it is so awesomesauce.
One coat of Hypnotize Me over KHALLL.

I did add a topcoat of Seche Vite to smooth everything out and shiny everything up. Nomnomnomnom! So pretty! 

What do you think?

Talk to you soon!

Vintage Fluffy Clouds

Hey guys!

So, I saw these cute little clouds on on blog and after searching and searching and trying to remember what it was, I FOUND IT! I saw these on Nailside and they were just too adorable for me to pass up! Annnd! Super easy! That's what I like to see and hear :-)

I recently acquired the Seche Clear Base coat and am trying this out to see how I like it.

I forgot to take pictures of Julep Emilie on it's own, but this is a really lovely tealish color... sooo pretty! It covered really well, also. Love Julep's coverage with their polishes :-)

Then I painted Julep Alfre (the purple/lavender shimmery color) and ended with Mary Kay Gold Leaf for the ends.

I should have applied a second coat of MK Gold Leaf but oh well. Live and learn, right?

These clouds were so cute to me. I kept looking at them all day! Next time, I will try some brighter colors to really punch up the excitement factor :-)

What do you guys think? What color combinations would you try to a manicure like this?

Talk to you soon!

Flower Nails with Unicorn Puke

Hey guys!

So today I decided to attempt some nail art. It is very rough nail art and I don't have any stamps or plates or anything like that. But I saw an extremely easy to follow tutorial on The Nailasaurus and I thought "hey, even I can do that!" So I did :-)

I started with two coats of China Glaze Crimson as my base coat.

This is a really really dark burgundy color, it almost looks black but it's definitely not black.

Then I dotted little flowers with Sinful Winterberry.
Then, I dotted Wet n Wild 24 Carats in the center.

I topped it off with INM Out the Door top coat.

Then I was like "but wait... I have this Unicorn Puke and I really want to wear it. So I applied a light layer of UP to the flowers.

So that's my flower manicure. Simple and not at all perfect but I think it looks cute :-)

Talk to you soon!

Westside Warrior Polka Dots

Hey guys!

This was originally going to be for the 31 Day Challenge, but since I'm lame and stopped that, I didn't want to let these photo's go to waste.

Cute lil' polka dots. I don't have a dotting tool so I used the brush. I tried a bobby pin but it was too small so the brush worked just fine.

I alternated the polish on my middle finger and used Owl's Nest as my base coat there; all the others are Westside Warrior. The more I use that color, the more I love it!

What do you think? Do you like polka dots?

See you soon,
