Major Update!

In the past week or so, I managed to wear some pretty sweet manis, finish school, and get engaged! Now that I'm done with school, I'll be able to post more often! :)

This is China Glaze- It's Alive. It is from their 2011 Halloween collection and I guess it's supposed to resemble some type of swamp creature. I didn't get a chance to wear it until December, and it kind of reminds me of a Christmas tree. It's very sparkly!

This is Essence Gagaelectric from their collection layered over Essie Tomboy No More. This had a pretty interesting effect. It looked blue and purple in different lightings. Although the Essence collection is called, I believe the polish looks more duochrome.

I was inspired by Christmas cookies so I decided to do this mani. This is the red and green snowman glitter (unnamed but Blue Cross makes it) over OPI Alpine Snow. I loved this! 

This is Zoya Marley on it's own (pre clean up). It is from their Spring 2011 collection. You can see that it has a pearl shine to it with the flash.

Here it is without the flash

I layered one coat of OPI Gone Gonzo on top of it. It chipped a little before I could take a picture of it.

without the flash

This is one coat of OPI Rainbow Connection over three coats of OPI Guy Meets Galveston. I loved this combination. It's festive for the holidays, but can be worn year round. Guy Meets Galveston is a jelly. I got many compliments on this, and somebody even asked me if I got them done somewhere because they looked like gel nails. I was visiting home when I took this and my mom just got her bathroom remodeled and the light in her new shower is so bright! I wish I could take all of my pictures under that light!

And last but not least, here is my engagement ring! I am so pleased with it! 


  1. jeez congrats on the engagement!!! my nails would fall off if i wore that much nail polish haha. the china glaze one is fairly nice! really goes with christmas and halloween. the little snowman polish is adorable. :) what were you studying at school?

  2. Thanks! All of the pictures were from the past couple weeks. I usually change my polish every 2-3 days. I was studying to be an elementary and special ed teacher and I just finished up with student teaching.

  3. Yay! Congrats! That ring is a beauty. And the manicures are nice too
