I know. I’ve been slacking on getting my MANICure posts up but with all of the house painting around the house I haven’t really taken out the time to get my hands together. Hopefully moving forward I will make this more of a priority.
Anywhooooo. Alisha is pouring virtual wine and showing off mani’s. She’s hosting the link up this week.
I am always raving on the fact that I like Sinful Colors better than some of the higher dollar brand polishes and this color is one of the reasons why. I admit it needed a few more coats than an Essie but for the price I can do that.
I’m done with winter and in my head it is spring so that is why I went with this color. I love it.
Don’t you dare say a word about my cuticles. Not a word. These nails barely got painted.
The link up this week is over at Alisha’s. You have until Friday to get over there and show off your MANICure. Don’t be like me. Take the time out to pamper yourself. I tell you a shiny, pretty nail goes a long way!
This is the first link up of the new year and I promise stability and great things on Mondays in 2014. So make it your business to paint your nails on Sunday evenings while watching your shows and come link up with us on Mondays.
MANICure Monday is starting off the new year with a new hostess. I want to welcome Alisha from Coilylocks.com to the mix. She takes her nail art to another level and shares a love for nail art and polish like Efie and I do. She is going to be an awesome fit.
I’m hosting this week. Linky will be open until Friday!
Seeing that I have tons of polish that I haven’t even touched I am making it my business to try the colors that I haven’t tried before. If I don’t like them they will be given away. Sad to say the color I used this week will be the first casualty.
I used Finger Paint color “Whose Hue” and my question is Whose idea was it to make this color. I don’t like it. I suppose it could be that it doesn’t look well on my skin color. It is a purplish color with a tad bit of sparkle.
I couldn’t deal with the color by itself so I added a little metallic- Essie “Penny Talk” the gold did a little something but I don’t know how long this will last
Looked a little something like this:
Hope your digits came out better than mine. Let me see your MANICure!! Don’t forget to grab the link up button!
A few weeks ago I received an Influenster Vox Box that had the Kiss Gradation polishes in it. I love the look of the gradation polishes unfortunately I have never been able to recreate them successfully on my own so I was excited to give this product a try.
Now that things are finally calming down I am ready to start linking back up and hosting MANICure Monday regularly. My fine co-hostess Efie has been holding it down in my absence and she is hosting this week so get over there and link up.
Oh…how I have missed polishing my nails. Seeing that I am still on cloud 1908 and will probably be for awhile don’t be surprised to see my nails in variations of pink and green. This week I went with the first pink I could get my hands on in my bin and wouldn’t you know the name of the color is “Tickled Pink” by Wet and Wild. How. Fitting!!
The coverage was decent for the lower priced line of Wet and Wild. I needed about 3 coats to get good coverage. I just painted them so I can’t talk to you about any chipping, however I did use my tried and true method to a longer lasting manicure.
Look at my baby ivy in the background!
It is my week to host the link up and truthfully my manicure is a mess. My nails look like all of the drama I’ve been going through with this house business. Need a description? They look like disappointment, mixed in with failed dreams and sheer aggravation. Trust me, I’ll spare you the visual. I tried though.
I thought I would give you the scoop on some of the hottest new fall nail colors. Fall is just around the corner so grab these when you see them to make sure you stay on trend this fall!
China Glaze – Rare and Radiant
Essie – Bordeaux
Laura Mercier – Cocoa Suede
L’Oreal – L’Orange
Deborah Lippman- Dark Side of the Moon
Link up and show off your MANICure. Can’t wait to see what you ladies came up with.
I chose to keep my MANICure simple this week. We are getting back to normal with the link ups so you can find the linky at Efie’s house this week.
I used Sally Hansen’s Good to Grape and Revlon’s Whimsical top coat to give a little shimmer to the purple. I wasn’t thrilled or disappointed with the purple. It was just purple, I almost wanted it to be a little lighter but I loved the outcome when I lightly overlayed it with the Whimsical.
