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 @Holographics.com 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 @Holographics.com, 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.

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!
