The ones that got away

 Hi! I’m so glad to be back after a long abscence. 

I had to move and although I do occasionally post on my Instagram i don’t have most of the polishes that I blogged about on here anymore. They were in my grandma’s home that I grew up in. It was hit by a tornado and because of the coronavirus I wasn’t able to go back for ANY of my stuff or hers or my late grandpa’s because on top of the RA, asthma and other stuff I already knew I had I found out I have early state heart failure (which explains the terrible coughing furs, fatigue and full body pain and coughing up blood I’ve had) and I didn’t know that a moving and cleaning company was coming until after the fact. I’ve been very upset about that especially since all our college diplomas were in there and a lot of other sentimental  things were in there. It depresses me so much and it’s taken away a lot of physical good memories of my grandfather. 

What are your polishes or favorite things that got away? My favorites of all time that I can’t find were colors by llarowe sizzlin Liz, Seahawks lime, Vapid Lacquer Petty, and any ninja polish (especially Mystic Glacier  100% Columbian  coffee, alexandrite) and any Ozotics. And my lily pad lacquer poppin purple broke but it of course wasn’t Almost Famous. 

I will be making a list and posting it soon in case anyone reading this is destashing or having blog sales. 

And if anybody didn’t know this about me my other “thing” was collecting stuffed animals. Watch this space for a list or Pinterest board.

Anyway I’m glad I finally figured out how to get back on here and write something. Thank you for reading!

Enchanted Polish 1999 and Monsters Ink

I'm finally making a post!

I lost a great deal of my polish collection which included a lot of my favorite polishes that I blogged about here previously. When I was moving my family actually threw them away.
But I've decided to try to get back into my blog as one of my 2018 resolutions.

I recently used Enchanted Polish 1999 with Monsters Ink as an accent nail.

I love 1999. Not just because of the name- I want all the Prince polishes since he was my favorite singer- but this has a beautiful foil/super holo finish. It's the color that I wanted Purple Roses to be. And in the sunlight the holo really pops.

I took this picture standing by the window- I was lucky that it was sunny when I took the picture because we recently had 3 days of rain.

I took this picture inside where you can see the foil finish.

the Meredith Nail Nation 3000 polish

Hello! I am back with an exciting new update.

First, I would like to apologize for my long absence. Thank you to my followers for sticking around.

Today I have a very special polish to review for you. It is made by my friend Maria from Nail Nation 3000 and it is called... *drumroll please*
Below is a bottle shot. It is a beautiful teal color with a metallic/chrome finish and light linear holo. Teal has always been one of my favorite colors (I always say blue, green and purple are mmy favorites and so this is the perfect in between shade.)

Here is what it looks like on the nails. The accent nail is another from the same collection,called The Social Mani Set. It is a silver glitter topper called Vamica.

The polishes may be found here  Check the Facebook page for sales and codes!

Back in blue

I haven't been keeping up with posting in here and I apologize for that. Thank you to everyone who is still following me.

But I'm doing a nail challenge now so I will post those in here. I thought I should also share some of my favorite blue manis I've done.

This is Enchanted H2O and Reign Beau. The holo accent nails are Rainbow Juice (with Pulp). I wasn't quite ready for the cold weather so my hands are unfortunately a bit dry.

This is a custom Mod Lacquer called Goodnight, Mod which was made when MOD Lacquer sadly closed down. The accent nail is Functional Distillator by Vapid Lacquer.
I will cheat and include a green polish in this one. These polishes are both by Carpe Noctem Cosmetics and are called I am the Forest and The Forest and The Sea. These colors go so well with my purse that I had to show them off!

Pinup Polish and Carpe Noctem Customs!

Hi! I had a few bad nail breaks so I'm going to post a few of my favorite manis from when my nails were still long.

This is my custom, Hyperspace by Pinup Polish. On my Pinky is Blue Years' Eve.

I chose the name Hyperspace because of the song Cosmic Girl by Jamiroquai. In the chorus it goes "Sends me into Hyperspace, when I see her pretty face."
If you look at the bottle you can see why I thought of that. Right Nadine? (Nadine is the creator)
I wish I had done a better job capturing the colors in this polish because it does a duochrome shift but I was trying to get the holo in the stars.

Here is the song:

Speaking of customs, Emily from Carpe Noctem Cosmetics made me my very own blogger color!

I had  a hard time thinking of a name. I just looked at it and thought of a beautiful bluish purple sky.
This color is also a duochrome (are we noticing a theme here?) Then I thought about tanzanite.. so it will be called Tanzanite Sky.
It is paired with Emily de Molly Head Over Heels.

Last but not least is another Carpe Noctem manicure I did for St Patrick's Day with polishes from her Always Greener Collection.

I used Losing Lime, Sweet Escapemint, and Insert Emerald Pun Here.
The other glitters on my middle finger are Lumina Lacquer Soleil (the gold) and the teal is F***ing sexy by Bitch by Jaclyn.

Manicure inspired by a ring

I haven't done any truly original nail art in awhile, but recently I got a really cute star-shaped ring from

I decided to try to do a mani based on the colors in it.

You can't see the colors in the ring as well in this picture.

The polishes I used were Femme Fatale Star's Lament, which is a black jelly polish with rainbow glitter.
On my ring finger I used chevron nail decals and from top to bottom I used:Enchanged Polish, Kids, Glitter Gal Lavender (whih looks more light pink in the bottle but does look light puple over black). I used a purple in the middle that I don't recall the name of at the moment.
On the middle finger I used Sparkle Nail Lacquer Stars on Fire.
It has a different arrangement of star colors than one of my other favorite polishes by that brand, Star Crazy.

Happy New Year! #PinkforLeelah

I want to be more active on my blog this year. Thank you to my followers for staying with me even though I haven't been posting much! I wanted to share the post I did on January 6th to honor Leelah Allcorn.

*image above from Tumblr- if you know who drew it please let me know.

This is my manicure.

The black is Cleopatra by Julep. I also used a regular topcoat and Essie's Matte about You to smooth it out. The glitter is Neon Punk by b.i.t.c.h by Jaclyn. The pink on my accent nail is September 2014 by Enchanted Polish. The stars are Silver Star by Kleancolor. (I know.. putting Kleancolor on an EP.. but I love those stars!)

I wanted to use the additional glitter on the black to try to tie it all together. I hope you all like it!

If any of you did a mani for Leelah I would love to see it too. Please link me to it or show me below!
