Manicure Description: This manicure was inspired by a cosmetics bag that one of my best friends gave to me (full of polish!) for my birthday this year that you can see in this photo. I started with a base of NOPI Call Me Classy and then sponged on a gradient using NOPI Call Me Classy and Ulta3 Orchid. Next up I stamped on a flowery design from BundleMonster plate BM-321 - I tried using two colours (OPI Dim Sum Plum and NOPI Call Me Classy) to make it more opaque but it didn't work out quite as well as I hope. I then finished it off with some white stars from BundleMonster plate BM-202. I love how it turned out, as soon as I saw the cosmetics bag I knew I had to try it out as a manicure and it looks fantastic!
Favorite Polishes: Color Club Wild At Heart, A England St George, Cult Nails Let Me Fly, OPI Skull and Glossbones, China Glaze FYI

Manicure Descrption: I wanted to do an Olympics manicure for the blog so I grabbed the new Essie Mirror Metallics collection and used nail striping tape (lazy and just left my bare nail underneath) and did a pseudo "laser" manicure using gold (good as gold), silver (no place like chrome), and bronze/rose gold (everyone's new favorite- penny talk!). I thought it turned out pretty well!
Favorite Polishes: China Glaze Re-fresh mint, Julie G 9 to 5, POP Beauty Tangerine Taste Color Club Koo Koo Ka Choo! I rarely wear polishes more than once, though...millions of untrieds (#bblogger "problems")! Your blog/tumblr/instagram if you have one:
