Just Another MANICure Monday

January 6, 2014

Hey!

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.

Finger Paint Whose Hue

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 :-(

Essie Penny Talk

Looked a little something like this:

Just Another MANICure Monday….on a tuesday

So nobody was going to mention to me that I completely and totally forgot to post last week…and then Memorial Day laziness. So here I am. Excuse my tardiness.

Anywho…I have been totally off my game with polishing my nails. I sat down to paint my nails and I totally felt prissy. I promise there is nothing better than freshly painted nails. This week I used Sinful Colors Savage and Revlon Gray Suede.

Sinful Colors Savage

I am in looooooooove with Savage. Love. Perfect for summer.

Revlon Grey Suede

I alternated colors on each hand and threw in a little design:

Okay. I think I am finally back in the groove of doing my nails weekly.

This week I wanted to use a few colors that I picked up on clearance recently. The Sonia Kashuk I picked up from Target for $1.38 and the Revlon during a recent half off sale at Rite Aid. I can never pass up clearance nail polish. I mean like ever. It’s all fun and games until you have $15 worth of $1.38 nail polish…not that I know.

Revlon: Muse

Sonia Kashuk: Tantalizing Teal

I’m not sure if I like the Muse on me but it looks really pretty in the bottle. This was my first time using the Sonia Kashuk line. It covered well and could completely get the job done in two coats and the brush was pretty awesome.

Your turn! I have started using a new linky tool that doesn’t require you to have a blog so feel free to link up and show your digits if you don’t have an online home. Can’t wait to see what you ladies come up with. Linky is open until Friday.

Mani Monday 210

I’m back. Did you miss me last week?

This week I am channeling spring and brought out one of my favorite colors.

Sinful Colors: Hazard Milani polish pen: Art of Gold

I love Hazard. The issue with some Sinful Colors polishes is that with some you get good coverage and with others not so much. This one goes on the not so much pile. This is about 4 coats with quick dry sandwiched in between to make sure it didn’t bubble and smudge. I still love this color but if you plan on using it don’t say your cyber homegirl didn’t warn you!

Ready to link up? Can’t wait to see what you ladies came up with.

Just Another MANICure Monday

December 10, 2012

It’s that time of the week.

The party is over at Efie’s this week.

My inspiration this week was based on the holidays and the lovely red color that I picked up from CVS during their 50-75% off beauty sale last week. I added in some silver and a little gold for a little holiday nail cheer.

L’Oreal: Caught Red-Handed/ Essie: No Place Like Chrome

 I used a Milani glitter gold art pen to make the gold lines

Festive no?!!

See you next week!
