NOTD 179 – Featured Color Friday – Icey Duo

Happy Friday and Happy Holidays (just in case I am not able to post again for a while with the upcoming craziness) 🙂

As I said in my last post, I picked up Butter London’s Double Take Ice Duo at Ulta the other day. It’s … amazing! I absolutely loved the formula of both of my first ever Butter’s. The blue is just as stunning as I’d hope it’d be from the looking at it in the bottle. and I actually like the glass shardy ice topper and I wasn’t sure I would.

This is the website’s description: Opaque, navy shimmer. A twist on the traditional style of dress in British private schools.

I am totally in love with my new blue and topper… Although as I said in my last post, due to the price this will probably be my only Butter’s unless I can find another amazing sale!

A very merry unbirthday to me! Don’t forget, I also picked up the Double Take Fire Duo and it’s up for grabs right now for my Birthday Giveaway #1! ***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***


Alright guys, as I said just in case I can’t post until after Christmas, Have a Happy Holiday (I will post my Christmas manis’ after in one post) and of course

NOTD 178 – Featured Color Friday – Indie Hello Kitty

Woohoo It’s finally Friday! I feel like I am so behind this year, I have no decorations up, nothing wrapped, still a few people to buy for, etc. I am usually way more prepared by now. I think it’s that Thanksgiving was so much later, it’s totally throwing me off. I have been working on Saturdays for OT, this Sunday I have a party to go to, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday of next week I have things going on, along with Doctors, etc. mixed in to that, it’s just insane!

Anyway, enough about my crazy schedule and lack of preperation this year, on to this beautiful ILNP pretty that I have been telling you all so much about lately. This is Indie Go by I Love Nail Polish. It’s a gorgeous blue holo with mixed in blue sparkles and subtle color change.

This picture is a little blurry but you can just see the amazing holo/sparkle and slight color change! 🙂

I then stamped my Ice skating Hello Kitty and I took my Milani nail art bottles and filled in some of the stamp. I colored in her headband and scarf pink and added glitter to her skates and her headband for some sparkly detail. 🙂

NOTD 107 – Snow Angel, Shawn

Sundays are the worst day of the week next to Mondays, because they lead up to Mondays, which are horrific… ugh.

Today I have “Zoya – Shawn” and “Lush Lacquer – Snow Angel”. I painted two coats of “Shawn” and then accented with one coat of “Snow Angel” which is a gorgeous gold and white topper by “Lush Lacquer”.

This next one is kind of blurry but I just loved how sparkly and shimmery it looked 🙂


Well guys, that’s it for me today, quick post 😀 lots of pics. I did pick up “OPI’s Nail Envy” yesterday after multiple suggestions, I used it for this mani and will continue, I will do a full report in a few weeks of how it’s worked for me.

NOTD 99 – Featured Color ‘Black Friday’

Happy Friday everyone! Welcome to the first edition of Featured Color Friday. Each Friday I will feature a color that I have yet to on the blog. Then new links will be added to my “Current Polish collection” page until all are filled.

These were my New Years Day nails. I painted one coat of “China Glaze – Liquid Leather” and topped with two coats of “Lush Lacquer – Black Friday” and “Seche Vite”

I absolutely love the colors and shapes and the design, and everything about the polish. It however is a glitter topper that you have to maneuver and manipulate on your nails so it lays where you want it to sometimes. ( if you are OCD like me) 😀


Still trying to get the lighting just right with my new light box, but I definitely see some improvements. Sorry about the blurriness around some nails, I had minor black polish marks before clean up that I tried to blur out. I wanted to take the pictures last night before Seche shrinked the look, and of course I did all that, and it didn’t shrink… 😦 I should be happy I know but I sat there and edited all the pictures. now I am using them hahaha

So what do you think of this polish and my new pictures?
