NOTD 180 – New Year’s Nails – Impeccable AC Slater + GIVEAWAY!

Well goodbye 2013… I am happy to put this year behind me. A lot of happy things happened but a lot of not so happy as well. My husband had two surgeries this year, my (four-legged) daughter had two surgeries… among other health and personal issues I am just ready to move on and start anew. Among the good things, I have am up to over 2,000 blog followers, close to 100 Facebook likes, and continued a special bond with a very special group of ladies. 😉 Cynthia, Lesley, Nicole, Jessica, Amy, Frosso, and Siobhan!

I have a special New Years mani for you using one of my few last unswatched ILNP’s. This is Maybelline’s Impeccable Greys with a somewhat firework stamp stamped over top the gray, using ILNP – AC Slater.

It’s subtle, but I love the way the holo shows over this gray. Under normal light this barely shows, its only under my light box or very bright lights that you can see this gorgeous holo peeking through.

So what are you wearing for NYE, and what are your NYE, NYD plans?

NOTD 172 – Featured Color Friday – Northern Lights @ILNPBrand

It’s finally Friday, this was a long week but a good one! I got to spend a decent amount of time with my sister and my nephew but now I am sad it’s over, she heads home tomorrow morning 😥

I had gotten an email from I Love NP about 2 weeks ago maybe longer about a new line that she was coming out with. I loved just about every one of them but I had to control myself! I picked out 5 of the pre-order polishes and if you purchased three you got another special polish, I then also ordered Northern Lights which I have for you today. I absolutely love all of the colors that I chose but this one is definitely my favorite of the bunch see for yourself.

The website describes Northern Lights as “a wonderful duochrome nail polish with dark purple and navy blue hues.” This color is so stunning, I just have no words, I tried very hard to capture the dark purple hue but it’s very hard, it even looks greenish in some lights. See for yourself.

Picture right from ILNP site.

I painted two coats of Northern Lights and using Essie’s There’s no place like Chrome, I stamped this design using PUEEN14 stamp. Here is the final result:

This was a couple of different angles and lighting, in person you can definitely see that in some lights it almost looks greenish and you can see the very subtle purple undertone.

So what did you think? Did you pick up any of ILNP’s latest line (coming out November 22nd for those of you that did not get the pre-sale)
