Fall snake skin nails

This is my 3rd day wearing this mani and I do have some tip wear but hopefully you can't see too much of it from the pictures.

I am wearing Fingerpaints Cordur-Orange. I absolutely love this color, it went on like butter and I only did one coat of this sucker. Full opacity. I am in love. I can't believe this is the only color I picked up from this collection. Then I used the newest bundle monster set to stamp a snakeskin pattern with sally hansen nail polish pen in gold.

Browsing Ross at lunch time..

I went to Ross to pick up a birthday gift for my bestie and while I was there of course I had to look at the nail polish and there was a rumor saying that Ross had the new Color Club 2011 foiled collection out for sale and lookie what I found...

Not the best picture but you get the point. They were $7.99 w/o tax. So check out your local Ross to see if they have these babies if you are interested in getting them. I am mostly interested in using them for Konad and Bundle Monster stamping, since they are so opaque and thick.

Spidey Spidey Spidey!

If you watch cute polish on you tube you should see she did this mani for Halloween, I thought it was cute and easy so I gave it a try. This is how it turned out. I will wear this for the next couple of days and then proabably get bored of it and take it off, lol! Enjoy.

The spider nails sticked are from Sally's Beauty Supply, they are around $4 and it comes with different Halloween designs in the package.

Mummy I love you!

I have watched several you tube videos on mummy nails and I just combined what I liked and this is how it came out.

 I used a makeup sponge to sponge a white, clear glitter and gold nail polish over my nails. Using a black stripper I made the black lines going across the nail and then used a white polish to make big dots for the whites of the eyes. Finally, use a red for the iris of the eyes and finish with a top coat(seche vite).

Hope you have a good day!

Color Club Back to Boho Collection at Ross

I was browsing my local Ross this past Saturday and I noticed on the shelf some color club nail polsih sets. They had half of the Back to Boho collection and the Starry Temptress collection. Guess how much it was? $7.99, CRAZY price for 7 nail polishes. I just picked up the Back to Boho collection, the Starty Temptress did not interest me much. So check out your local Ross to see if they have this, so worth it.

Nail Polish Storage

Well since I live in a small apartment I don't have much room. I picked up one of these plastic rolley cart things at Staples for like $8, they go on sale quite often.

First drawer: Nail supplies such as nail files, konad plates, konad stamper, nail polish wipes, orange sticks, nail stickers, nail jems, jewels and pearls, scotch tape, swabs.

Second drawer: Top coats, base coats, nail strengthners, nail art polishes (most are from the dollar store and I do have a couple of sally hansen nail polish pens, they are good for stamping). This is also where I keep my silver, nudes, golds, and brown nail polishes. I am slacking in that color department.

At first I had all my nail polished categorized by brand and they looked so neat and tidy but when I went to get a color I wanted to wear, it was a bit frustrating going through the brands looking for a specific color. So I decided to categorize them by color instead of brand, not so tidy but it works for me. These are blues, green, reds, blacks, and glitter polishes.

Last drawer: Pinks, purples, whites, oranges, yellows and corals. All my crackle and shatter nail polishes are in here also.

 I just weeded out all the stuff I don't wear and gave most of it away. I currently have around 214 nail polishes. This is not all of them I have about 15 more that need to put away. Seriously I think I have a problem, maybe I need to challenge myself not to buy polish for a month.
