Beverly Hills and Ice Queen!

Hello Lovely Ladies,yesterday I took a ride to my local Walgreens looking for the Sinful Colors Beverly Hills collection and I found it. Unfortunately, the only color I was impressed by was the color "Beverly Hills", a light, creamy lilac shade. And I love the little flower ring that comes with each bottle, so cute.

Most of the other colors I already have or have colors very similar. I also picked up a bottle of Sally Hansen's Ice Queen, a fine silver glitter with blue and pink glitter chunks and a bottle of Sinful Colors, Ciao Bella. This is a deep, Royal blue with a little bit of shimmer.

I put Ice Queen over a swatch of Ciao Bella and over a deep red nail polish and it looked fabulous. However, when I put it over my Beverly Hills mani, I was not happy with the results. But it's a fun look for a hot summer day. That's what I love about nail polishes, you get to play and try different looks.

Have a great day ladies,

Favorite summer Polish!

Hello Lovely Ladies, I just wanted to share my favorite nail polish for the summer. Yes, it's Essie's Turquoise and Caicos. I just love this color. It's such a cool and soothing color to me and it adds that POP of color especially when wearing a white outfit.

I wear a lot of silver and turquoise jewelry and this polish is a perfect match.

In the second photo I added LASpalsh's Golden Seahorse to my ring finger.

Well, I'm off to do my Saturday errands, hope you all have a fabulous week-end.

Morticia's Nails

I love this set and it's perfect for the Fourth of July. .

Bebe Neuwirth, two-time Tony Award winner and star of Broadway's "The Addams Family," has selected and named these spookily fun colors. The set's sale helps raise money for the Actors Fund.

The deep blue polish is called Midnight Tango, the crisp white shade is called Bone Chilling and the beautiful, deep red is called Blood Curdling.

I also picked up some nail polishes while I was in NJ this past week-end. Golden Seahorse is this beautiful, aqua blue polish that has very fine gold glitter and is made by LASplash.

and I finally got my hands on WetnWild's Mermaid Cove polishes. The pretty blue- green shade is Diving for Pearls, the deep purple is Sea Witch and the mauvy pink is Sea of Dreams.

"Make Mine Mango"

This is the manicure that I wore to New Jersey this week-end. Revlon's "Make Mine Mango". It is such a pretty coral color. On my ring finger I topped it off with a coat of Finger Paints " Outta Sight Orange.
I picked up some polishes while I was in Jersey, I'll be posting them along with Essie's "Morticia's Nails collection later today or tomorrow, so come back soon.

Sally Hansen "Strike a Pose"

I know that these pictures "suck" but I just couldn't get a good picture. But I am so excited about this Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Strike a Pose". It is an ivory color with extreme duo-chrome. I put one coat over Sinful Colors "Seaweed" and it looks great. The duo-chrome is incredible especially in sunlight.
I probably would never wear it on it's own, but the possibilities of using it over other colors , is endless. I can't wait to play.
So go to your local drugstore and get a bottle, you won't be sorry.

OPI Dupes.

Do these colors look familiar? I found these in my local Rite-Aid. They are from the Sinful Colors Adventure Island collection. and they are exact dupes for OPI Pirates of the Caribbean.

From left to right is Seaweed {which is what is on my nails} and is exactly like Stranger Tides. Next is Star Fish, a dupe for Sparrow Me the Drama. Then there is Open Seas a dupe for the famous Mermaid's Tears and the last one is Verbena which is just like Planks a Lot.

I paid $1.79 for each bottle so I got all for colors four less then it would cost for a bottle of OPI. Another plus is that they wear so much better. I have the Pirates of the Caribbean collection and when I wore it , it chipped after two days. I've been wearing Seaweed for four days and its as perfect as day one. The application is great and it covers completely in two coats.

There are a few other colors in the collection including a beautiful pink called Beautiful Girl. So check them out, you won't be disappointed.

Magenta and camera problems

I guess I'm a little late, but I finally got my Wet n Wild Bucket from CVS. I'm sure you all know about it already, it has 7 nail polishes, white nail paint and decals and a nail file for $9.99.

Anyway I did a manicure using "How I met your Magenta". Unfortunately it is coming across more pink then magenta. My camera is not the best.

As a matter of fact I am very "pissed" at my camera right now. I was deleting some pictures and all of a sudden a message came up saying "Delete all Files from Memory". It give me a choice of yes or cancel, so I immediately hit cancel.
But it deleted all the pictures from my SD card and my memory anyway. I lost tons of vacation pictures from Key West and Vegas. THAT SUCKS!

Sorry....just had to vent. Have a great week-end ladies. HUGS!
