Flip Flop is My Fantasy

Man, China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy is one of the most flattering polishes I've seen on so many different skin tones, mine included! I had seen swatches and never broke down to buy it until this summer, so glad I did~ This is three coats of Flip Flop Fantasy stamped with Zoya Ibiza (vampy dark blue) and the polka dot french image from fauxnad plate m49.

 Where did I get this fabulous plate might you ask? From the lovely Crystal of Valentine Kisses of course! This doll mentioned she had an extra plate I really like and dropped it in the mail to me along with some rockin' fimo canes. <3 Thanks honey!!

I then added the bow image from plate m71 and a blue rhinestone. Lots of photo opps because this is one of my favorites~

HK Mermaid Style~

Oh Hello Kitty, how I love thee. I know that this little lady has been around since the 70's, and there are some massive cult followers of her brand. For some reason my affinity for HK started a few months back and I don't see it slowing down anytime soon! I had been really thinking about how I wanted to use the cutie little mermaid Hello Kitty water decals from Born Pretty Store and finally figured it out. There were multiple colors for the scales on the tail so I wanted to match it. I used two coats each of Sinful Let's Meet (gold shimmer) on the pointer and pinkie, two coats of Nina Ultra Pro in Punki Purple on my middle finger and thumb then two coats of Hello Kitty by Sephora in Bubble Gum.
Then one thick coat of the total awesome-licious that is Icing's Glitterratti. I added the water decal to my accent fingers and tada, total HK happiness. Also, I wanted to apologize for dragging out the results on my Birthday Giveaway, I'm really behind and a little low on funds but will announce winners in the next two weeks hooray!

Like Royalty

So I know that Orly's Royal Velvet was the breakout star in the fairly recent Precious collection. I wasn't quite sure until I sported her. The way it catches the light and duochrome type goodness is fascinating. Royal Velvet really describes the color best. This is two coats stamped with China Glaze Avalanche and the flower-like image from plate k05. My accent were some Fing'rs USA silver glitter crown stickers and small circles.

I also wanted to share a fun pic of the lab baby. His ears are sooo big, even bigger than his older brother. He literally woke up like this the other day and I was lucky enough to have a camera close by. We say he looks like a gremlin when his ears get turned inside out like this.
Did you grab this color when it came out? Are you as big a fan as I?

Think Warm Thoughts

It's a friggin monsoon outside! It has never rained this much nonstop. I'm sad to see the cooler temps roll in :(. This mani just cheered me up looking at it though. From a few weeks ago, three coats of Pure Ice Heartbreaker, a sheer coral jelly with holo glitter. I used two coats of China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le on the accent fingers then stamped the palm tree image from plate m28 with konad hot pink, it wasn't as crisp on the blue as I had hoped so sorry for the blur.

Pure ice is sold at Wal-Mart just like this delish Hard Candy Lip Gloss with FLAKIES! Hunkering down and clearing out the DVR tonight, you?
p.s. So soddy for the tip wear, waited a wee bit too long for photos~

Shella from Polish Wonderland asked me to do a  guest post for her blog, I didn't realize it's been live for a few days, I'm loving the Ozotic Pro!

Glitter. Simple. Get it? I was craving something simple bust still very ME. I went with three coats of China Glaze Love Letters, a pinkish fair pink jelly for French manis and then free-handed the tips with OPI Show It and Glow It from the Burlesque collection. It's a glittery goodness of multi-colors loaded with mostly purple glitter. Wore this one for about a week, a bit gritty.

We had a fairly relaxing weekend, yesterday was the best considering a community pool lets the pups come and swim before they close for the season. My oldest Gunner can't get enough of fetching his ball in the water. The little one had a great time too. It's all fun and games until someone shizzes in the pool, we had to get out a little early, but hey at least it wasn't my dogs' fault. = O.

Elusive Stripes

Countdown to the weekend! I'm so looking forward to a three-day break, are you guys doing anything special? The Colorado Balloon Classic is upon us again, always a fun event other than the early call time. Honey decided he'd rather do the morning than the "BalloonGlo" like last year. All I know is the coffee better be waiting for me =D. So this mani was just damn impossible to capture. Three coats of Claire's Cotton Candy scented polish with holo glitter, a neon turquoise with a matte finish. I then used a metallic fuchsia stripe rite for the lines with criss-crossing on my accent and thumb.
It smelled good for about a day, people always look at you funny when you tell them to smell your fingers or they see you smelling your own fingers (I always insert dirty association here, feel free to keep your head out of the gutter unlike me haha). Hope all my U.S. cuties are planning some good R&R~
