Ship Shape!

Hey lovelies! I have been itching to try this combo forever! China Glaze Life Preserver and First Mate and then for fun I added a gold line. I love this combo so so much! It reminds me of a Tory Burch store! I hope that everyone has a wonderful 4th and stay safe! Ta!

Walking the Plank

Hey lovelies! It's Friday, yay! Today I have OPI Planks A Lot from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection. I know that you have seen this collection over and over, but I really liked it. The colors caused some dispute, but I thought they were really pretty and muted. However the formula and application caused me some trouble, very sheer and didn't build up smooth. Planks A Lot is a muted purple cream with gray undertones, I used 3 coats and still had some patchiness. Because I LOVE OPI I Juggle...Men I topped Planks A Lot with 2 coats of this beauty! WOW, what a gorgeous combination, we had a little sun peak thru so I took advantage and I apologize for the messy clean up. Enjoy the weekend, ta!
Planks A Lot was provided for review.

Sometimes you just want to say F@#$ Off!

Hey lovelies! It's Pink Wednesday and I love this polish, not sure if I love it even more because of the name! This is ManGlaze F@#$ Off & Dye, which is the most perfect matte pink ever! ManGlaze makes matte nail polish like no ones business, I couldn't decide if I liked this one better matte or with a topcoat so I did both! I used 2 coats of F@#$ Off & Dye, then taped of diagonal lines and used Seche Vite. It is such a subtle difference. I have had the best time looking at my nails and thinking, yes that is exactly what I want to say right now!

Lights, Camera and Nail Polish!

Hey lovelies! Today was a big day, I made my television debut as Polish Pauper on Charlotte Today!

It was so much fun to do even though I was super nervous prior to going on! What did ya think?

Here is a close up of my nails done in OPI Guy Meets Gal-vaston layered with Cult Nails Captivated and accent nail of straight up Captivated!
Now on to the polishes featured in the clip. Corals were Deborah Lippmann, Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Sally Hansen Coral Fever, A Beautiful Life Go-Go and Sinful Colors Hazard. Yellows were Deborah Lippmann Yellow Brick Road, Chanel Mimosa, Zoya Pippa and Sinful Colors Unicorn. Oranges were Deborah Lippmann Lara's Song, Finger Paints Outta Sight Orange, Revlon Tangerine and Sinful Colors Cloud 9. The crackles were all of the new OPI's Navy, Red, Silver, Turquoise, $OPI Gold, CG Cracked Cement, Broken Hearted, Lightning Bolt, Fault Line and Crushed Candy.

I need to give a major shout out to Sandy Bowers and the Monkeetes from Monkees of Davidson for their awesome styling! Mawh! To Tracey at Ginger Kitty Designs for the fabulous bracelet! Then to Rachel Sutherland of Rachel Sutherland Communications and If the Shoe Fits for everything, you are the best!

Pirate Gold!

Hey lovelies! Yesterday was my hubby's family reunion and I wanted to have a subtle mani, but with an edge, what to do what to do! I came up with Pirate Gold, two coats of OPI Stranger Tides and one coat of $OPI Blasted Gold. Stranger Tides is an odd color, but I kinda like it and Blasted Gold is a light gold shatter. I did use a top coat which made the gold really sparkle! Enjoy! Ta!

What could be better then Always Winning?

Hey lovelies! What a weekend, my son graduated from kindergarten, I fell down my friends porch steps and have a massive bruise on my bum and then spent the rest of the weekend with an old friend and her family at our farm, whew! Ok now on to the polish, Maria of Cult Nails is one of us and her polishes reflect that. Today I am showing you Always Winning from A Day at the Races collection. Always Winning is a sheer, olive green polish with gold and holo glitter which overall equals awesome! I decided to layer Always Winning over Sinful Colors Unicorn, a pale yellow cream. 1 coat Unicorn and 2 coats Always Winning and then SV on top. Ta!
