Won't you take me to...Tinsel Town!

Hiya folks!  I tell you what, it has been way too long.  I haven't painted my nails like I love to in several months.  Exciting things have been going on in my life and my husband has been pushing me to actually get work done in our house.  I'll have a few photos by the end of the coming week of before and afters.

Anyhow.  I finally had the drive to put polish on my nails.  It is either summer or winter here in Houston so I went with a winter-inspired look.

The two colors I used are Chanel Blue Rebel and China Glaze's lovely winter color, Tinsel Town!

One coat of Blue Rebel with one coat of Tinsel Town.
I used snowflakes from Dashica Beauty plate #SdP-A18.  I purchased this a very long time ago and I've noticed her plates are now rectangular.  She has a lot to choose from, and I originally looked into these plates because of the many different Sanrio characters she has.

You can see Blue Rebel coming through on this indoor photograph with flash

I will be back soon.  Have a beautiful weekend!

You've got to know...Loodie Loodie Loodie!

I'm sure many of you have already heard of her, and are even following her, but I just had to give loodie loodie loodie a shout.

She is seriously the Bill Nye of Nail Science!!

The one post that really got me was her post "Moisturize Your Nails with Acetone...Kinda"
Check it out for help with getting the acetone to glycerin ratio down.  :o)

You'll definitely find yourself lost in her other extremely informative posts.

piCture pOlish Blog Fest! | Featuring Metallic Mush

Australian brand piCture pOlish has deemed today blog fest.  Lots of bloggers all over the world will be showcasing colors from this brand's color menu.  piCture pOlish is also known for carrying Ozotic Pro Polishes.  I'm so excited to have received Metallic Mush.  I love rose gold, and have two other polishes quite similar to Metallic Mush.  I'll post comparisons in the future.

"Watch out this maybe magic!"  I found that a little humorous.  I didn't quite get it, maybe because it is so shiny?

The one thing I know about piCture pOlish's Metallic Mush is the quality.  Two coats and you've got full coverage.  My all time favorite color is Bombshell, and Metallic Mush is right up there with it.  I really think this color would flatter all skin tones.

What do you all think about rose gold metallics?  The rosiness is subtle in Metallic Mush, and is why I think this color could easily flatter all skin tones.

NOTD *~*~PIC HEAVY~*~* | Chanel Peridot, Missha HGR01, $OPI Mermaid to Order & NYX Jungle

I felt like sporting ombré nails today.  Seeing as it is summer, I felt mermaid inspired colors would be a good idea.  XD

Jungle is a peacock blue jelly with a greenish gold shimmer while the other three are frosty colors.
Mermaid to Order is a turquoise-y teal that flashes a deep watery blue color.
HGR01 is a greenish gold color that flashes the same deep watery blue color as Mermaid to Order.
Peridot is a golded olive that flashes a blue-green color.

I applied two coats of all three. 

In the sun | L to R:  NYX Jungle, $OPI Mermaid to Order, Missha HGR01 & Chanel Peridot


In the shade | L to R:  NYX Jungle, $OPI Mermaid to Order, Missha HGR01 & Chanel Peridot

In the sun:

In the Shade:

Chanel | Peridot

Missha | HGR01

$OPI | Mermaid to Order

NYX | Jungle

What do you all think of these colors?  Any of these you just had to have?
I just had to have Mermaid to order.  I got Missha because I thought the bottle was adorable, and it turns out the brush is just like the crazy large Sally Hansen brushes.  I picked up Peridot because that is my birthstone.  As for Jungle, I received it from the lovely Edita of AllYouDesire (Yes the one with the totally awesome nails).
