Pink Wednesday Gradient

Started with 2 coats of Sally Hansen's Pink Promise

First layer of sponging on Zoya Faye

The next day when I finished it up with more Faye and a top coat.

I really loved how this turned out even if it was a bit cutesy for me. The worst part was the next day I went out in all black, looking incredibly badass, but had this cute little pink mani.

ModMatte Pheobe

I got in my Zoya Earthday purchases. One of the colors I picked was the new ModMatte Pheobe. She is described as being a matte shimmer, but you mostly get the shimmer when you put a topcoat in, in which case you also lose the matte.

I started off with 2 coats. And this picture is taken in the shade. I LOVE it plain.

This was stamped with a BM12 design and Zoya Ibiza, another of my Earthday buys.

As the mattes chip easily with my use of my hands. I added a top coat before removing the polish, just to see the effect it gives. 

It did chip VERY fast for me. I only wore it for 11 hours before it started chipping.

Kreativ Blogger Award!

My future sister-in-law at MoondancerJen's Nails, has nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger Award!

This is what you have to do when receiving this award:
- You have to write ten facts about yourself
- You have to pass the award along to ten other bloggers! 

Ten Facts about me:
1) I have a lot of hobbies and nail art is just an easier/less time consuming way for me to paint. The other hobbies are: writing, painting, playing video games (especially world of warcraft), thinking about interior design as I do not yet own a house, and spending time with my boyfriend.
2) I have been with my boyfriend, Chris, for almost 7 years now, still without a ring.
3) I love animals and have a dog named Malachi, he's a miniature toy poodle.
4) I'm 21 years old, though on May 14th I will be 22.
5) I've changed majors 3 times now and schools twice trying to get through college.
6) My weeks seem to always be planned for me before I even get a choice in the matter.
7) I love being outside, but I am allergic to everything and therefore avoid it.
8) I am constantly thought by my online friends to be a male, because I am able to beat them at video games.
9) I love my summer job and I hope to be hired by them once I graduate. It is Department of Defense work for the Navy. But I LOVE it. And everyone says you should love what you do.
10) I can't think of something else to say, so I think I am not interesting enough to say 10 facts about me. :p

The 10 bloggers I think deserve this:
1) Painted Lady Fingers
2) Confessions of a Polishaholic.
3) SpookyNails
4) Spellbinding Nails
5) Polish Insomniac
6) Pass the polish please 
7) playing with polish
8) Parokeets
9) Shadow's nail
10) Dwarf Man at Holy Powah (not a nail blog XD)

Thanks much for this, Jen!

Pink Wednesday A little late. XD

I wanted to try something a little different than the plates i see most people using, so I used the chains on BM12. They are a bit punky, but I like them.

A new love of Yellow

I actually have always hated the color yellow. Not many things are pleasant that are yellow in my mind. I have really really bad allergies and yellow has always reminded me of that. BUT I got this yellow from Sally Hansen awhile ago and I actually really like it. 
This is HD Lite with a design from Bundle Monster plate BM12 in black Konad special polish

Red Glitter Love

I just got a couple of Finger Paints, and one was this like darker red with glitter. I just wanted a darker red and it looked good. Once I tried it though, I loved it. It is "Romanticism Ruby." And it certainly made me feel romantic. Nothing like a good standout red to make you look hot. :D
This is just one coat with a base and top coat. If I had done another coat it would have come out darker, but I was in a rush. My previous color had just chipped off.

Water Inspiration - Blue gradiant

I really love the four elements that people thought were what made up all life before science ruined all the philosophical fun, earth, wind, water, and fire. This is water inspired and I absolutely love these 2 colors.
They are both SinfulColors, the lighter is Gorgeous, and the darker is Midnight Blue.
I sponged the darker onto the lighter.
