OPI Spark de Triomphe

I wore this to the beach on Saturday and it was sparkling like diamonds! In all of the pictures I am wearing three coats of polish.

I was not a fan of glitter nail polish and if you took a look at my stash you would never believe that. I hope everyone is having a great 4th of July!

Awesome Combo!

I saw this combo on Steffels at MUA and I instantly knew I had to try it. Of course, at the time, I did not own the glitter polish used to create the look but I fixed that quickly!

I really enjoyed wearing this combination and did not want to take it off but, unfortunately, it had to go. 

Oh, I did end up using Essie Matte About You on it before I took it off but I didn't like the way it looked and I forgot to snap a picture.

Milani Sparkling Blue

Here is a mani I did with Milani Sparkling Blue and I must say it is not one of my favorites:

Milani Sparkling Blue 

I was disappointed with this one. I think if the base was more of a jelly base I would have liked it much better. The base overpowers the glitter to much and I was not feeling it at all! The base and the glitter in this polish were just not made to be paired with another.

This polish was a part of the 2009 Welcome Back to Color Collection. Along with Sparkling Blue, I purchased, Flashy Orange, Gleaming Green and Dazzling Pink.

Essie Ruby Slippers

This was red week for my nails. I didn't plan it, I just wore red for the whole week. One of the reds I wore was Essie Ruby Slippers ♥♥♥♥♥.

I remember going to my TJ Maxx last year and finding a few mini's of Essie Ruby Slippers but I never bought them because I don't like mini polishes. Then I saw pictures of the polish and instantly fell in love but I still could not bring myself to buy the mini. Well I finally purchased the full size and I am VERY pleased. I love the red glitter in the red jelly base. There are even small bits of silver glitter in it. I should have used Gelous Basecoat and then Seche Vite so it wasn't so gritty, but it was no biggie, next time I need to remember to do that.

Thanks for looking!

OPI DS Glamour & Zoya Reva

Here are two pics of my NOTD's (Nail of the Day) from last week:

OPI DS Glamour ♥♥♥♥♥

My application on this one was pretty bad. Hopefully, the application can be overlooked because this polish is gorgeous! The first time I saw it I knew I had to have it. I was in Ulta one day and it was in the clearance section for 2 bucks! WOO HOO!

Zoya Reva ♥♥♥♥♥

This is another winner and to be honest I was pleasantly surprised! I am tempted to put it on again this week it is just so pretty!

This weekend I also indulged a little bit. I purchased the OPI Navy Shatter, Turquoise Shatter, Blue Shatter, Mod About You and Butter London Henley Regatta:

Off to play with my new pretties!

My nails...

look so bad right now and it is all my fault. Normally, I use Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover and Nubar Foundation Base Coat or Sally Hansen Nail Quencher Hydrating Base coat. Well, I ran out of the Sally Hansen Cuticle Remover and started using the cuticle remover from Nfu-Oh, then I ran out of Nubar Foundation Base Coat and instead of using Sally Hansen Nail Quencher I decided to use Seche Crystal Clear Base my nails are peeling and I am not sure which of my new products are the culprit. I am switching back to what I was using before and hopefully my nails will come back in better condition.

I wore Amour Rain Glitter before my nails started peeling so badly and I must say I  ♥♥♥♥♥ it.

Sephora By OPI Ocean Love Potion

This polish is definitely in my top twenty. It applied nicely with very little cleanup. I am wearing three coats but I really could have stopped at two.
