NOTD: Rhinestone French Manicure :)

So today's nail design is pretty simple...just a typical french manicure with some blue rhinestones. :) Sometimes it's just nice to go back to basics every once in a while.

I should have some super awesome designs coming very soon! :) Thanks for stopping by!

NOTD: Orly Peachy Parrot + Ulta Quake Top Coat.

Right now I have on Orly Peachy Parrot, my third color from the Birds Of A Feather collection. I'm still debating on whether I should get a couple more of the colors, guess we'll see. :) I was gonna leave it plain, but decided to go over it with Ulta Quake Top Coat, and I am pretty happy with the result:

 Before adding the Quake Top Coat:
So to me they turned out kinda Halloweenish, not really what I was planning, but I like it. ;) Hope you enjoyed this NOTD post. Next I want to do a series with the Zoya Smoke and Mirrors Collection, so hopefully I'll get to that soon. :) Thanks for looking!

Nails Of the Day: Orly Nite Owl.

Really quick post...I have on Orly Nite Owl from the Birds of A Feather Collection. I know it's a pretty boring color, but it's one of those that is so simple it's stunning. :) At least to me haha:

I decided to pick up this color from Orly after obsessing over Butter London All Hail The Queen...I wasn't about to spend the $14 for that bottle, so settled for this since it seemed like the closest shade I could find. I am pretty pleased with it. ;) Thanks for looking! :)

Nails Of the Day: Nubar Reclaim!

So this is what I put on my nails last night. I know it's nothing new in the world of nail polish, but this is my first holographic polish ever! :) I had always been kinda weird about wanting to try something like this, but I finally got one and OMG...I love it. This is Nubar Reclaim, one of the more popular ones I've seen floating around the web. :)

Outdoors, overcast:


Awesomeness. :) Thanks for looking! :)


Recent Haul...and Time For A NO-BUY Haha

Hey Everyone! So I made a couple of trips to a couple of Ulta stores...and ended up buying a lot more polish than I had planned. :\ I did really well though as far as getting good deals and hitting up the sales(buy 2 get 1 free, 2-for-1, clearance), and using coupons and rewards, so that made me feel a little better about my purchases. :) So here is the first group I bought:
These three are Zoya Jem, Neeka and Jana, all from the Smoke & Mirrors Collection. I now have 7 out of 12 from that collection, and I think it will stay that way:
These three were random from various collections, left to right: Zoya Ali from the La-Di-Da collection, Zoya Marley from the Intimate collection, and Zoya Shay from the Touch collection:
Then I just had to take advantage of the 2-for-1 deal with Ulta nail polish, so I picked up Ulta Concrete Evidence and Army of 1:

So that was my first little haul...Then while visiting my grandparents I took a trip to the local Ulta there, and had an amazing time shopping there! It's funny how each Ulta can have a totally different selection of things and clearance items! :D I was very pleased with this second trip:
So these were buy 2 get 1 free, and are from the Orly Birds of a Feather collection. From left to right: Fowl Play, Nite Owl, and Peachy Parrot:
These two I just couldn't pass up. Ulta Material Girl and Chocolate Kiss:
And then, as I was about to leave, the clearance section caught my eye. I just had to check it out, and found a few sweet deals. :) I picked up China Glaze Blue Iguana and Electric Pineapple from the Island Escape collection, and Barielle Out-Grey-Geous. I tried so hard to get a good picture to capture these colors, but I just couldn't get it. :\ The blue is actually a blue and purple duochrome shimmer, Electric Pineapple actually has a greenish tint to it, and Out-Grey-Geous had little flecks of holographic glitter. Hopefully when I wear these I can get better pics of the true colors:

So here's the whole lot together!! :D

Ahhh so pretty...But seriously, this has put me in the No-Buy phase. I told myself I need to wear every one of these colors before I do another major haul. Hopefully that will actually happen. ;) Thanks for stopping by, I should have new Nails of the Day and tutorials up sometime this week!
