For the love of DS Glamour

I've got another blue for those who love blue as much as I do! I love OPI DS Glamour so much, I couldn't resist on using it for this design. A simple chevron french; blue on blue with a touch of glitter.

Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
Base Color: NYX Ink Heart
Tip Design: OPI DS Glamour & NYX Ink Nail Art in Crystal Glitter
Top Coat: OPI RapiDry TopCoat

Note: NYX Ink Heart is a creme finish but because I used OPI RapiDry when my mani wasn't completely dry yet, the brush picked up some of the holo glitters from DS Glamour making Ink Heart look like a glitter/shimmer polish which sorta gave it a nice effect on the overall mani.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Guest NOTD: Gold and Leopard

Here's a quick post. I have a guest nail of the day; my niece Kyra (3yrs) who requested me to do her nails. I thought it'd be cute to do a leopard print on her since her mommy's a big fan of the pattern.

Base Coat: Nail Envy
Base Color: OPI Bling Dynasty (2 Coats)
Konad IP m57 w/ Essie Licorice 
Top Coat: Seche Vite

Little fingers are fun to polish...especially when they're willing to cooperate. =)
Isn't it cute? Love it!

Pure Ice Kiss Me Here, m57

Happy September everyone! How's the weather in your area? It's weird as always here in's cold, then hot and humid, then rainy, then cold and rainy. If I can't control the weather, then it's at least a blessing that I can control what my mani will be like =)

Pure Ice Kiss Me Here is a medium grey creme. This would be my first grey polish. I was wanting to get China Glaze's Recycle but didn't want to go through the hassle of ordering online, so I went to Wal-Mart in search of a similar grey and I think this comes pretty close imo =). What do you think? At first I thought--should I get a grey polish or not? Looks like a boring color; but it actually looks pretty good on me (or so according to my husband. hehe) and I like it too...especially with the design on it =) Hope you like it too!

Base Coat: Nail Envy Dry and Brittle (Review coming soon)
