My "little hand" model

My niece KL (3 yrs old) was over at my place the other day and saw how cute her little painted toenails were. Her fingernails were bare and I felt like polishing nails (which is almost everyday!). I can't go a day or two without changing my nail color. Sometimes, I admit, I peel my polish on purpose just so i can take them off to put something new on...(unless I really love the color ^_^). Anyway, this is what i put on her-- OPI in Elephantastic Pink and I topped it off with Seche Vite Top Coat (my fave top coat when I'm on the go) which dries super fast since I knew she'd be running around soon after. KL was such a trooper! She kept really still and didn't bother with the application until it was dry. Aren't her little fingernails just the cutest! I love her!

This on the other hand, was my nail polish for the past two days. Before that, I had just the Essie in Licorice (which I love. Black matches anything ;)) I decorated it because I noticed that it was slowly chipping since I'm fairly rugged with my hands and nails (which I know isn't good. yikes) I actually did this in the car with some Bon Bons nail polish in a pink color and silver (there's no name on it) and simmered it up with NYX Ink Nail Art in Silver Glitter which by the way, I got on sale for $1.49! (yay! for sale items!). I basically did horizontal stripes on the left and right side of each nail and layered the colors together. I wasn't trying to be perfect which made this even more fun :) & I modeled it with my MAC Select Sheer Foundation.

Hope you enjoyed this! I'll try to take pictures of the NYX Ink Nail Art and post that and maybe do a review on it since I haven't really tried it yet (I'm no pro at nail art and can't think of any cool designs of my own) so we'll see. =)

Nail polish crazy...

I was searching random things on the web one day and came across a bunch of nail polish pictures. From there, I searched more...and more...and more. I spent hours glued to my computer (which was very unproductive but so satisfying);P! Here are some swatches I did on my nails:

essie in Pop Art Pink (3 coats)

essie in Licorice (3 coats)

Nicole by OPI in Blue Lace

The two Essie, I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! First coat applies a little streaky but as you apply the second and third coat, it evens out. It's super shiny even without a top coat. The Nicole by OPI on the other hand, I love the colors that they offer, but compare this to the original OPI brand nail polish, hands down, OPI takes it. Only because Nicole sometimes tends to be streaky and wearing it alone, it doesn't give the kind of shine OPI and Essie has.

Today, I am wearing Essie in Licorice. =)
I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed swatching it for you!
