Mish Mash Challenge!

Guess what day it is?! It's Hump Day! :)

Today is also the start of a new challenge! Some of us ladies from the last challenge and some wonderful new additions are getting together again for what is being called the Mish Mash Challenge. This challenge will consist of a different theme each week that were chosen at random. I'm excited for this one, I think its definitely going to be challenging!

This weeks theme was brought to you by the color: Purple. I have been dying to try I Love Nail Polish and when I saw the Ultra Holographic collection I fell over in my seat. I had to have all of them, and all of them I got! I was so excited when I got my package wrapped in cute ILoveNP tissue paper. Since I knew that this week was the color purple, I went for Amanda Hugginkiss!

DROOOOOL, photos don't do this justice. I couldn't take my eyes off of my hands! I'd be driving along and then catch a glimpse of my nails in the sun and just gaze! They're a beautiful hazard LOL. I still haven't tried the others but don't be surprised if they make an appearance sometime soon. A good holo is like my kryptonite, just take my money, please.

Before you go please check out the other ladies below and have a great week!

TIOT - Nail Pattern Boldness

Hi there! For today's Try It On Tuesday I have a 2 in 1! I just got myself two lovely bottles of Nail Pattern Boldness, Glitter A-Peel and Hello, Sweetie! After seeing so many reviews of Glitter A-Peel I had to get my hands on it and of course I couldn't purchase that without getting a glitter polish to go with it. My choice was Hello, Sweetie!

This pretty little thing is a purple jelly with glitters galore. I'm starting to appreciate purples more and more these days. Under this bad boy was Glitter A-Peel and I have to say it was SO AWESOME! I actually had a few nails pop off while at work and doing random things. It was so nice though to not have to deal with nail polish remover and cotton balls and the smell! It's worth every damn penny...LOVE IT!

Have a wonderful evening everyone and tomorrow I'll be back with a brand new challenge! Can't wait!

Try It On Tuesday - Clown Puke

Hello people! Happy Tuesday! Today is kind of like my "Friday"...tomorrow is a state holiday, Pioneer Day! What is Pioneer Day you might ask? I have no freaking clue! I've had the unfortunate pleasure of living in Utah for 6 years now and I think I first heard about this holiday maybe 3 years ago. I think...I may be when the Pioneers settled in Utah, I could be wrong though. I just celebrate the fact that my company uses this day as a PAID holiday, so I have no problem taking full advantage.

OK, on to the polish right?! For today's TIOT I've got on  KB Shimmer Clown Puke over Sally Hansen White On. Clown Puke is an amazing awesome glitter packed top coat that pretty much rocks my socks off. It was so much fun watching new glitters show up on each nail. The KB Shimmer website says that this polish has over 100 different glitters which is mind blowing to think about!

Super pretty right?! So much glitter...and I probably could have used more, but I didn't want to over do it. I know the more glitter I used, the harder it would be to take off :) Plus I only got a mini bottle so heavens forbid I use it all. Well I am off to see a movie, I hope each of you have an awesome week!

Try It On Tuesday - Sonoma Nail Art

Hey there! I hope everyone is having a good week so far, mine is all over the place and its only Tuesday! Working and staring at a computer all day makes it hard to come home and spend more time on the computer and blog. I really do like posting once a week though, it gives me time to enjoy my manicure and play around with other colors in between. Currently, I am blogging from the inside of my closet because I have scared dog who is terrified of the thunder that's happening outside...what a chicken right? The closet is her safe place and she prefers to have you with her; and she wont leave you alone until you get into the closet. So here I am, closet blogging.

For today's TIOT, I've got another indie that has been on my buy list for a while and I am oh-so-glad I finally got my hands on some, Sonoma Nail Art. First off, I have to say that I LOVE the bottles. I like the fact that each bottle has a different design for each color, I think it makes it unique. Today I wanted to share with you the beautiful Aether.

You may or may not have noticed but I used a REAL camera for my photos today! LOL. I've had this camera for a while now and finally decided to give it a shot since my iPhone photos show up like garbage sometimes. I think they actually came out pretty decent, I'll defiantly need to play around with the settings but I think this is a good start.

The last photo in the set is probably the closest to the true color of this stunning polish. I used about 3 coats and had no issues with the formula. The small glitters and the aqua base made this polish land in my top 5 favorite colors. Another thing I loved was that it lasted for about 4 days until it started to chip, which is great in my book. Isn't it pretty?!

Well, I am off to tend to a spazmatic dog and eat some ice cream, I hope everyone has a lovely week and until next time!

Try It On Tuesday - Lime Crime

Hey there! I decided to participate in a little thing every Tuesday with Gini from Sassy Paints called Try It On Tuesday. These posts will consist of polishes that I've probably had for a while and have been dying to try out. Its a great way to enjoy these beauties and try more of them out! Lord knows I have waaaay too many untrieds!

Today I've got on Lime Crime Peaches <3 Cream, a gorgeous peach color that's been in my stash for a few months now. I decided to try out a "quilted" pattern on my ring finger with another polish that I recently purchased and just used for the first time, Tough As Nails Lacquer in Peachy Keen. When I looked at buying Peachy Keen, she had a swatch of it over Peaches <3 Cream and I pretty much had to have it.

SO PRETTY! I'm really digging the peach and coral colors this summer. It's a weakness of mine when I walk into Ulta. Damn you beautiful nail polish....why do you tempt me! If you want to participate in TIOT, you can check out Sassy Paints FB for more info.

Also, I have decided to jump on the Bloglovin please follow me there! Have a wonderful week everyone! Follow my blog with Bloglovin

ABC Challenge - Z is for Zoya

Happy Hump day! I can't believe that we're at the end of the ABC Challenge! It's been awesome getting to know the ladies who participated and seeing what kind of amazing artwork can happen using nail polish. You ladies are truly an inspiration!

Now on to the super simple Z manicure, Z is for Zoya. I went with Zoya Rocky because I have become OBSESSED with this color, its pretty much all Ive been wearing since I got it. The blue is the prefect shade, it actually reminds me of the blue skies back home in Oregon.

Well, I am off to an MLS soccer game to cheer on my Real Salt Lake and to enjoy the beginning of my 4-day weekend! Don't you just love a holiday?!
