A very Hidden Treasure






I'm sure you all have seen this polish, at least from me before. Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure. This is shown over white (looks like opals!). This polish looks good over anything, it's my drugstore staple of the year.

Hey! WnW French White Creme + WnW Black Creme + m71. That's all this is. But it sure is pretty :) I have an owie on my ring finger :( Also, it smudged a bit.

Through the gates of hell




It looks like a gate, see? No, you don't see? That's too bad, I think it looks like a gate. This is my french manicure (Essie Mademoiselle with WnW French White Creme). Stamped with plate m57 and WnW black. Love.

This is my franken. The NB on MUA was coming up with Shakespeare names for polishes, this is Lady Macbeth. This turned out... AWESOME! It's a jelly the color of dried blood, a little darker than I imagined but I like it better this way. I used a random red creme (it leans a bit pink/blue) with WnW black and Nailene clear. I figured as long as I was sending in the polish for the exchange, I might as well franken with it and I am glad I did! I may go on to make a Shakespeare collection, who knows!

From dark to light

My favorite nail color (long before I became a collector and blogger) was navy. I just adored it. Recently, I bought this navy (OPI Russian Navy). I love this even more because it has some slight pink shimmer that gives it a little interest. Now, I just need to find a navy creme (preferably a jelly) and my navy collection will be complete.

Some nail art I wore today, I frankened the base, and the branches are ChG Unplugged. I used silver bullions for the centers of the flowers.

I really like flakies





Can we pretend this less blue? Okay? Thanks. It's RBL Mismas with Nfu Oh 51 layered over with SH Hidden Treasure over that. Really pretty! 51's red shimmer is visible under all those flashing flakies. If you have the polishes, try it, you won't be disappointed.

Cheetah!


This is SH Pink Boa layered over CC Screamin' Fucshia. With konad.

ZEBRA!



Tomorrow I have a cool konadicure, WnW Black Creme with ChG Millennium and plate m57. This looks cool, I doubt people will think it's real (which is always a plus).

A game of catch-up

Finger Paints Decked With Dazzle is one of my favorite pinks ever, and it's not even a glitter or a neon :) That's quite high praise from me! This is a foil, it has small micro silver and gold glitter. This has SH Hidden Treasure over it, not noticeable so I felt guilty for wasting some of my precious bottle :(



And this, this is WnW Night Prowl, I wore it all day and was shocked to get NO compliments! I usually get 2-3 a day, when I have konad on that number jumps to 6-10, when it's a water marble EVERYONE notices. Yeah I'm a bit of an attention -forgive the language- whore, I like to be asked how in the world I did my nails! Well, forgive that rant, this is a jelly black with red-purple glitter. I wish there were more colors like this, I want a blue one and a pink one and a yellow one and a....

A Nail-Arty Post

Yeah, I've been gone a while. Sorry :(! Well, here are the AMAZING nails I wore today. This is WnW Black and White. It's hand done and just stunning in person :).

And here is the polish I just painted, it's still drying actually :). This is one coat of Essie Mademoiselle (told you we're best friends), one coat of Zoya Lael on tips and then a gradient of WnW Kaleidoscope and a glittery purple WnW (label came off). I modeled this after those awesome gel nails you see, I wanted the perfect my-nails-are-too-shiny-and-glittery-and-stunning-to-be-real kind of look. I think I achived that. The gradient as actually super subtle in real life, though the nails are impossibly bling-y.

It's been one year now...

Wow! I can't believe it! One year... When I started this I didn't think it would go anywhere. I have a habit of flaking out on things, so to have stuck with this... Indescribable. I wish I could have the coolest mani ever to show you all, but, the sad truth is I don't. I can't (for personal reasons) wear any color right now, so Essie Mademoiselle and I are becoming best friends. I also wish I could have a giveaway but I don't have any prizes! So, you tell me, what do you all want???

Dandelions

This was so pretty! I stole it from a MUAer who I adore. This was way more artsy than I usually go, I used ChG Recycle and WnW Black Creme.



And some real flowers...
