What can I say? I love, love, love this color! Ok, I also love Halloween too, so its not that hard to come to that conclusion, especially with the catchy names! Application is smooth and polish consistency is a treat! haha =) I applied 3 coats with Seche Vite QD on top. The more you layer the polish the more the sparkle is evident. I think this is a great polish to kick off this next “holiday”. The base of this polish is a dark wine/brown color with hot pink/purple flecks of micro glitter in it. I look forward to trying out the other 2 colors in the Awakening Collection as well. Because it was, oh, 5:30am when I polished my nails this morning, the sun wasn’t awake, so the pictures are using indoor lighting and flash. Enjoy, until next time!

For today’s NOTD, I chose to try Revlon Silver. It’s a light gray jelly polish that borders on being a light blue depending on the lighting your in. Polish application gives full coverage in one coat,though I applied 2 coats in the above pictures. I’ve learned over the years that product consistency isn’t always a plus with some polishes, Revlon being one of them. The applicator brush seems to be hit and run with these polishes, meaning, the brush in this polish bottle is all discombobulated, with wild bristles sticking out all over, making the application a little more difficult/messier than it should be. Anyway, I survived, mission accomplished and I do like the color very much! Ah yes, by the way I picked up a few more polishes in my travels on Monday. Here is a quick snap shot of my goodies.
China Glaze: Mummy May I, Zombie Zest & Ick-a-bod-y
Orly: It’s Not Rocket Science & Space Cadet. I only wish I had realized how similar Zombie Zest and It’s Not Rocket Science are, I bought them at 2 different stores. I’ll do a side by side comparison soon. Until next time!

Today’s NOTD is a French Manicure using SH Hidden Treasure and Orly Pointe Blanche. I love the flakes in Hidden Treasure and how it reflects different colors in light changes. The best way for me to describe the flakes is it reminds me of fish scales…ok not attractively worded but the iridescent flakes play with the light bringing out gold, orange, green and pink reflections. Hope all is well out there in blogland, until next time.

The following designs are all hand painted using different polish colors. I used a striper brush, dotting tool and rhinestones here and there. Not sure when I will be able to post again, I will be working a lot , sooo… hope you enjoy, until next week!

Looking thru the “archive” of pictures that I have created over time, I stumbled across these nail art pictures. It’s been so long I wish I could tell you the names of specific polish colors but I can’t :( This is a sample of my restlessness, either that or I had so many pretty colors, I couldn’t chose just one and I ended up using them all for lack of being able to make a decision. I used a thin striper brush, a dotter and some rhinestones. Hope all is well, until next time!
