ABC Challenge - G is for Green

I have been BEYOND busy the last 2 weeks but I am excited to finally get my G post up. I took the easy way out with this one, G is for Green. I didn't like my selection of G-named polish so I went with a color and brand I haven't tried yet. This beauty is Layla Ceramic Effect CE54. Overall I really liked this polish, it was easy to apply and dried fast. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to try some more from Layla, they have some beautiful colors.

ABC Challenge - F is for FLOAM

Happy Hump Day! I am so excited to show you today's polish. For the letter F, I decided to go with FLOAM. I was so excited when I was able to finally snag this from Ninja Polish several months back. When I first got it, it had great application. After sitting for a few months, it thickened up and was a little more difficult to work with. Even with that, it still came out looking awesome. I used Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in White On for my base.

Little side note -- Sad day....broke my thumb nail on my "good hand." So you may not see it for a while, it needs some major TLC. RIP Thumb Nail.

Splatter Manicure

Happy Friday! I am so happy the week is over, its been a long one for sure! Today I have something I think I am going to try more often. I decided to use my lovely base from Wednesday's challenge to attempt a splatter manicure. I've seen it on several blogs and its been on my list of nail art to try for a few months now. I'm actually pretty impressed with the way it turned out!

My base is Essie Mojito Madness and for my splatter I used Sally Hansen's Xtreme wear in White On and Blue Me Away. I had a few bubbles pop up with the white polish, but I think over all it turned out awesome. I used 2 coats KB Shimmer Clearly On Top for my top coat. I have to say it's my new favorite top coat, it has great application and dries quickly.

After looking at this manicure for a while it kind of reminded me of the earth, you know, blue - ocean, green - land, white - clouds. Am i right....or could I just be seeing things?? ;)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

ABC Challenge - E is for Essie

Hey ladies! Today's letter for the ABC Challenge is E. I decided to go with Essie Mojito Madness. I am obsessed with the name and color of this polish. First off, I love me a good mojito, who doesn't? Second, green is my favorite color, and this is the PERFECT green in my eyes. Two coats of this bad boy and Ive got full coverage, I love it! It reminds me of summer time and laying in the grass :) Have a wonderful day everyone!
