Barry M Denim + Candeo Sprouse !!

Holy Cow Do I Have A BEAUTIFUL Combo For You Today.... I Can't Believe How Much I Love This. 

Everytime I Go To Do My Nails, I Have A HORRIBLE Time Picking Out What Polishes To Use... It Literally Takes Me HOURS To Decide. I Will Swatch Out 3 Or 4 Nail Wheels And None Of The Combinations I Made Will Be What I Want... Then I Usually Get Irritated And Just Make Myself Choose Something. That Isn't The Case This Time!! After Swatching Just One Wheel, I Went Over To My Polish Stand, Stared At It For A Moment, Grabbed Two Random Polishes I Have Never Used And Said 'These Are The Ones Whether Or Not You Want Them To Be.' Which Two Did I Grab You Ask? Barry M in Denim (325), And L.A. Girl Glitter Addict in Eutopia (GNL444).

I Started Off With One Coat Of Denim, Then Topped It Off With One Coat Of Eutopia. It Was Pretty, But Not QUITE What I Wanted. So, I Ran Over To My Untried Indie Polish Area, And Pulled Out The Perfect Topper For It All -- Candeo Colors Sprouse! Holy Cow The End Result Is Beautiful. Onto The Pictures!!

Above Pictures Show One Coat Of  Denim With Topcoat. Denim Dries To A Matte Like Finish.

These Pictures Show One Coat Of Denim With One Coat Of Utopia. Please Don't Mind My Cuticles, They're Getting Sore From The Weather Changing. My Skin Always Has A Hard Time Adjusting No Matter How Much I Moisturize And Whatnot.

AND The Final Product. Its GORGEOUS. The Way The Purple Glitters Peek Out From Behind Sprouse... I Just Love It. I Can't Stop Looking At My Nails. Don't Want To Change This Mani For A Long Time, But I Know I Have To Keep It Fresh. Ha Ha.

CLOSE UP!! Still Doesn't Really Show The Holographic Glitters That Are In Sprouse, But Man This Is Pretty.

Application For All Three Polishes Was Great, No Problems At All. Formula Was Also Great On Them All. No Problems With Drying Or Dragging Etc. 

Barry M Is A Brand From The UK, I Received Denim From A Friend. But You Can Always Check Out The Website And Order From There If You Want To Pay The Shipping.

LA Girl Glitter Addict Polishes Are Available Here For $4.00 Each.

And Last, But CERTAINLY Not Lease, Candeo Colors Polishes Are Available At Their Website Here, And Also Through Llarowe

Dollish Polish Dino-Mite Yoshi!!!!

AGH! So I Have Been Slacking... Again. So Sorry. Life Can Just Get So Hectic With Working And 3 Kids And School And Appointments...  I Really Have Every Intention Of At Least Posting A Few Times A Week But Life Seems To Get The Best Of Me.

Buuuutttt Anyways, Lets Get To The Good Stuff. I Recently Ordered Some Of Dollish Polish's Mario Collection. I Am A HUGE Mario Fan, As I Know A Lot Of Others Are, And I Am Also A Polish Fiend, Hence My Name. So What Could Be Better Than A Mario Themed Polish Set?? The Set Contains 8 Amazing Polishes, 1-Up, Toad-Ally Awesome, It's A Me, Mario!, Go Luigi!, Wicked Wario, Dino-Mite Yoshi, The Koopa King And A Peachy Princess. Of The 8 I Ordered Toad, Luigi And Yoshi... Need To Get the Rest Of Them Still, Can't Just Have Part Of The Set .

On To The Swatches!! Below I Have One Coat Of Dino-Mite Yoshi Layered Over Two Coats Of L'Oreals 'Safari Chic'. Don't Mind The Redness Of My Fingers In Some Of The Pictures, I Don't Know If It Was The Camera Or From My Skin Being Sensitive And Having To Put My Poor Hands Into Sanitizer At Work *(I Am A Waitress)*

CLOSE UP!!! oOoOoOoOohHhHhHh... Pretty :o)

This Is Safari Chic By Itself, It Is A Really Pretty Creme Polish, If Olive Colored Greens Are Your Thing.

My Bottle Of Yoshi. Absolutely LOVE This Polish. The Shimmer And Glitters In It Just Amaze Me And I Couldn't Stop Staring At My Nails While Wearing It, And It Made Me Sad To Take It Off. The Application Was Great With Yoshi, I Had No Problems Getting Tons Of Glitter And Getting It Spread Nicely On The Nail. Formula Was Amazing Also, Not Too Thick, Not Too Thin. I Am A Huge Dollish Fan, And Can't Wait To Add More Of Her Creations To My Collection. Especially Excited For Her Upcoming Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween Collection!! EEEKKK!

For Any Of Those Who Don't Know About Dollish Polish, You Must Be Living Under A Rock, But You Can Purchase Her Polishes Here At Her Big Cartel Store Or Through Llarowe, Where All Of The Mario Polishes Are Still Available Along With Others.

Time To Come Back....

So, If You Were Somebody Who Started Following My Blog, Or Were In The Same Groups As Me On Facebook, You Probably Noticed I Just Disappeared With Nothing Said At All.... It Was Not To Be Rude, I Was Just Having Some Major Personal Issues That Needed To Be Dealt With, And I Just Didnt Have Any Time For Anything Other Than Working Or Family. At Least Thats What I Told Myself. I Didnt Want To So Much As Look At The Computer Or Talk To Anybody Who I Didnt Have To... I Was Totally Out Of Control With Ordering Polish Online, And Swaps Etc. It Got Really Overwhelming. I Blew Tons Of Money On Polishes I Really Didnt Need. I Just Wanted Them. I Had Plenty Of Others That Looked Just The Same. Couldnt Talk Myself Out Of It Though, I Did A Ton Of Impulse Buys. So I Had To Take A Break And Get Myself Composed And Back On Track. I Just Made My First Two Polish Orders In Three Months (Thats A REALLY Long Time, For Me Anyways!!!) I Have My Spending Limit Set And Feel That I Am Ready To Start Over. I Am Stronger Now, And Know To Take A Step Back And Think 'Do I REALLY Need This' Before I Just Carelessly Hit The Buy Button And Get Yet Another Polish That Looks Exactly The Same As 10 Others I Have. I Really Enjoy The Nail Community, And I Love Polish. So, Lets Give This Another Try And See How It Goes From Here. Thank You All Who Support Me!!

Layla Ultra Violet AND More Nail Mail

Hello Everybody!! This Has Been Such A Long Week With Work... Blah. Need A Week Off I Think, But That Is Not Going To Happen Any Time Soon. *End Sob Story*. I Finally Used One Of My Layla Hologram Effect Polishes I Bought Myself As A Birthday Treat. I Must Say, I Am IN LOVE. I Can Not Wait To Use Ocean Rush Which I Also Bought. Also, I Got Some More AMAZING Nail Mail The Last Two Days. I Am Pretty Excited About.

Lets Get Into The Pictures!! *(OOOHHH Rainbows!!! YAY!)*

So, Here She Is, Layla Hologram Effect In Ultra Violet. I Am Sure You All Have Seen It Before, But Never On Me! :o) Please Excuse The Tip Wear In These Photos, My Poor Hands Get Abused At Work, That Is Why They Look So Red And Swollen *(I Have Very Sensitive Skin And The Sanitizer In The Water We Use Does That To My Hands... I Should Really Just Wear Gloves)*...  Anyways, The Rainbows In This Polish Amaze Me. I Really Think It Is One Of The Most Holo Polishes I Own. It Reminds Me A Lot Of OPI DS Original... I Might Have To Do A Comparison Post Sometime, I Don't Know If I Have Seen That Done Yet. As For Formula Of The Polish, It Was Not Bad, Maybe A Wee Bit On The Thin Side, But This Polish Dries REALLY Fast, Major Bonus. I Could Not Believe How Fast It Dried, In My Personal Opinion, This Is A Great Quickie Polish... But That Is Just My View On It. I Have Heard Others Say They Have Had Troubles With It. This Is 3 Coats All By Itself, Next Time I Might Try To Put It Over A Deeper/Darker Purple To See What It Looks Like!

Onto The Nail Mail!!

First Up Is My Cult Nails Order!! The Last 3 Are From Their $5 Promo They Did. I Ordered Hypnotize Me, Let Me Fly! *(Which Is Actually A More Greyish Blue But Did Not Photograph That Way)* And Living Water. SO PRETTY!! Then, After I Ordered Those 3, I Found Out They Had Seduction Available On The Site For Purchase By Itself. I Had To Have It. It Is The Closest To Unicorn Puke I Am Ever Going To Get. You Can Get To The Cult Nails Shop By Clicking HERE.

Next Up Are Two Kleancolor Polishes I Got Off Ebay From An Auction For Really Cheap. The One On The Left Is Disco Ball, It Has Tealish And Lavender Glitters In A Clear Base. Then On The Right We Have    Vegas Night, Which Is Yet Another Blue And Purple Glitter Polish To Add To My Collection. I Wish I Knew What It Was About Blue/Purple Glitter Polishes That I Am So Attracted To, Even Though I Have At Least 4 Or 5 Other Different Ones.

Now, We Have Dandy Nails' Wonderwall. I Am SO Glad I Snagged This Polish Before It Disappeared!! I Did Not Even Know She Was Open Until I Saw A Friend Post That She Had Just Snagged A Bottle, So I Got To Her Etsy Shop Real Quick, And Got Myself One Before It Sold Out!! You Can Get To Sandy's Etsy Shop By Clicking HERE.

And, Last, But CERTAINLY NOT Least... My Precious Ozotic 533. I Am So Happy About This Polish, It Is My 3rd Ozotic Ever. So Prettyful. Just Look At The Rainbow In That Bottle!! Can't Wait To Try This Out!!

Well, That Will Conclude My Post For The Night. Off To Do My Nails So I Have Something For Tomorrow. Have A Great Night/Day Everybody!!

Awesome Nail Mail From 05-21-12 !!

Hello Readers!! I Am Very Worn Out From Work. I Was Going To Do A New Mani To Post Tonight, But I Am Just Too Worn Out, So Instead I Am Going To Show You The AWESOME Nail Mail That Was Waiting In My Mailbox For Me Today :o)

Above Is My KB Shimmer Order!! From Left To Right There Is: All American, Proud Peacock, Party, Bejeweled And Shipwreck! I Am So Excited That I Snagged These Up Before She Sold Out Because I Usually Miss Out On Everybody's Shop Openings Since I Am Always At Work. In My Opinion The Shipping Was Very Fast And I Had No Problems At All With My Order. Her Next Restock Won't Be For A Few Weeks Due To Base Issues, But She Also Sells Yummy Scented Soaps And Bath Bombs. You Can Click Here To Check Out Her Etsy Shop!!

Next Up Is A Polish I Got From A Little Swap I Did With Jacki From Adventures In Acetone. This Is Ana Sui 105, A Very Pretty Light Blue/Light Teal Polish With Holographic Glitters Spread Throughout. Thanks Jacki For The Beautiful Polish, I Look Forward To Wearing It!!

And Last, But Certainly Not Least, My AquaDaisy Order!! For Those Of You Who Don't Know, AquaDaisy Is Another Indie Brand That You Can Purchase On Etsy, If You Are Interested In Checking Out Her Shop You Can Click The Link HERE. The Top Polish Is Succulent, A Beautiful Mint Colored Polish With Fuchsia Glitters Throughout. On The Bottom We Have Ke$ha's Floor Sweepings, You're A Firework, And Me Too. Ke$ha's Floor Sweepings Is A Really Pretty Glitter Polish That Is Filled With All Kinds Of Glitters, And I Mean ALL Kinds. There Are Silver Holo Glitters, Purple Hexs, Blue Hexs, Stars And SOOO Many More, Pretty Much What You Would Find If You Had To Clean Up After A Ke$ha Concert!! Next Is You're A Firework, A Royal Blue Jelly With All Kinds Of Shapes And Sizes Of Holographic Glitters Along With Red, Blue And White Hex Glitters. Then Finally We Have Me Too, Which Is What She Describes As Her Ode To The Black And White Polish Craze... There Was A Bit Of Confusion With My Order Since She Was Switching Between Two Things And She Sent Me The Mini Blue And The Black And White Polish As Extras For The Confusion With My Order. Bonus For Me!! Yay!

Princess Tea Party And A New Mani!! *(Long Post!)*

Oh My Goodness Ladies, What A Day!! I Had A Princess Tea Party With My Daughter, Aizlinn                *(Pronounced Aye-Z-Lynn)*, Which Was A Function To Help Her Dance Studio With Remodeling Costs. They Had Some Of The Older Girls From The Studio Dressed As Disney Princesses And They Got To Get Their Autographs And Dance With Them.   At First Aizlinn Wasn't Very Sure About It, And Looked At The Girls Like They Were Insane, But By The End She Was In Her Dancing Glory!! For A Moment I Had A Flashback To My Childhood Where I Quit Dance Class Right Before My Recital Because I Was Too Afraid To Get On Stage, AFTER My Parents Spent All The Money To Get Me My Costumes *(I Was In Ballet, Tap And Acrobatics)*.... LOL. Everything Is Good Though, That Just Isn't My Girl, She Is Super Outgoing And Fun, The Complete Opposite Of Me, The Shy Girl Who Hid In The Corner Forever!

Had To Share A Couple Pictures Of Aizlinn All Dressed Up <3 Love Her!!

Now, Onto The Reason You Are Here!! NAILPOLISH!! Woo Hoo! This Took Me FOREVER To Make My Mind Up On What To Do Tonight. I Filled 3 Whole Nail Wheels With Different Polishes To See What They Would Look Like On And None Of Them Really Just Said 'WOAH' To Me. It Is Also Hard With My Job Because Technically, I Am Not Even Supposed To Paint My Nails For Some Unknown Reason. But, There Is No Way I Am Going To Not Paint My Nails... I Tried, It Does Not Work. I Just Cant Do Their 'French Tips Only' Thing, And Not Colored French Tips, PLAIN French Tips... BORING!! So, I Am Sure If The Manager Of My Store Sees Them Tomorrow She Is Going To Say Something, Like She Always Does, To Which I Will Say 'Yes Karen! I Will Change Them Tonight'... And Simply Come Home To Put A DIFFERENT Color On, He He He.

So, After Going Through About 50 Different Polishes. I Decided On These Three Beauties -- Golden Rose Matte Velvet 101, Models Own - Indian Ocean And Models Own - Ibiza Mix For The Accent Finger!! I Bought The Golden Rose On A Blog Sale And The Models Own I Got By Paying A Very Kind Lady To Order And Send Them To Me From The UK. Love My International Friends Who Feed My Addiction!! What Would I Do Without Them? *(As I Have Said Before, Probably Have More Money... LOL)*

Onto The Pictures : 

Picture Above Simply Shows My Little 'Work Area' On My Tiny Coffee Table. I Need To Get Something Else To Do My Nails On... 

This Is A Front View Picture Of The Three Polishes I Used: Golden Rose Matte Velvet 101, Models Own Indian Ocean, And Models Own Ibiza Mix!

Back View Of All Three Polishes!

Here Is The Mani *(Going To Apologize For The Wierd White Stuff On My Fingers Now! It Is Not Dry Skin)*

This Is The End Result!! I Love It. It Is Absolutely Gorgeous. I Am Sad Because I Failed To Capture The Beauty Of Indian Ocean. I NEED A New Camera!! Indian Ocean Is Truly A BEAUTIFUL Polish, It Is Very Sheer On Its Own, So I Find It Best For A Topper, This Is The First Time I Have Ever Used It, But I Am Sure You Can Layer It Over Other Colors Than Just Blue For An Awesome Effect. For This Mani I Used Two Coats Of The Golden Rose, One Coat Of Indian Ocean, And One Coat Of Ibiza Mix On My Ring Finger. Application For The Golden Rose Was Fine, No Issues. It Does Not Have One Of The Really Wide Brushes, But The Brush On It Was Good. As For The Models Own, Application Was Great. The Only Thing With Them Is I Wish They Had Wider Brushes. For Some People Though, If You Don't Like Smells, It Might Be An Issue For You. I Personally Love The Smell, But It Is Very Strong.  Kind Of Like A Really Strong Permanent Marker. Yum. LOL. These Pictures Are All With Topcoat.

So, This Concludes My Post. What Do You Think? Do You Own Any Of These Polishes? What Do You Think Of Them? Also, For My Fellow Bloggers, What Kind Of Camera Do You Use? I Need To Invest In A New Camera, But Do Not Want To Pay An Arm And A Leg. I Am Now Going To Leave You With A Couple Pictures Of My Boys, Jayden And Bentley, Since I Posted Miss Aizlinn On Here. <3

This Is My Bentley <3

This Is My Jayden, He Was Trying To Hide Behind A Piece Of Bread, And Would Not Let Me Take Any Other Pictures... Ohh Kids.
