OPI Texas collection- Big Hair Big Nails

OPI's Texas Collection is 12 shades, 6 are what they call sorbet...I call them jellies
and I'm stubborn and don't take to change well so they will be referred to as jelly. :oP~
The first one up is Big Hair Big Nails a Red jelly that is almost a coral/orange toned red.
If you've been reading my blog long then you know I love red and I loooooove Jellies
(I do not like the name at all)
This is 3 perfect coats of jelly love, you really don't need a top coat with the gorgeous shine that these have.
Can you see my nails smiling?
In shade this almost looks opaque but still squishy and yum
Application was honestly much better than with most jellies, it was not thin streaky/sheer and runny but a nice thick, smooth even coverage that builds perfectly
OPI I love you for making a red jelly....can you do a teal, green and periwinkle next?
 I will give you many smooches!

Zoya Intimate collection- Jules

Jules is a sparkling champagne gold metallic
I wish I could wear gold better because this truly is a lovely color
This is 3 coats of Jules with Poshe' top coat
Application is very nice for a metallic, smooth, a little sheer but builds well.
Removal is so much easier than most comes of as easily as a creme!

Zoya Intimate collection - Caitlin

First I have to say I apologize for the quality of the pictures in this post and in the coming Jules post.
These are the last swatches photographed with my old camera which was on it's last leg & you can see why I HAD to upgrade. The swatch colors are accurate although grainy/fuzzy and generally odd looking.

Caitlin is gorgeous!
Even a dying camera can't hide this perfect dusty, grayed purple creme!
This is 2 thin coats with Seche vite top coat
(Natural light)
Application is excellent, smooth and very even.
This is my new perfect purple creme!

China Glaze Anchors Away - Sea Spray and a little fauxnad

China Glaze Sea Spray is so gorgeous that my camera refused to capture it's perfect color!
Description by China Glaze-
Sea Spray: Calming pale blue crème

I can't dispute a perfect description
I added a little me over Sea Spray by stamping Red kisses from Bundle Monster plate BM02
and then in black stamping across the tips and up one side with BM21
I love how it turned out....a little goth graffitiish
Sea Spray is smooth & opaque in 2 thin coats and needs nothing more to be perfectly gorgeous!

Hanging out with "Them Pretty Colors"

If you want to see/read more about this gorgeous Brazilian shade...head over to Them Pretty Colors
I did a fun guest post featuring a gorgeous Brazilian brand, Angel.

To all my friends

Did you know that women have a Flaw?

One Flaw In Women
Women have strengths that amaze men.....
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
But they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
And laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in..
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer,
When they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
And cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
A birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
Yet they are strong when they
Think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
Can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
To show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what
Makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their
Family and friends.
Women have vital things to say
And everything to give..


I wanted to share this with ALL of my readers. Please write a note to yourself, your friends, Mother's, daughter's, Grandma's, sister's or any of the women you know.... Simple write, You are worth more than all the stars in the sky and I love you!
P.S. Make a banner and hang it over the kitchen sink.... "I am worth so much more than even I know"

China Glaze Anchors Away- Starboard & White Cap

I am loving China Glaze Anchors Away collection!
My Daddy was Navy in Vietnam and my Hot Hubby was a Merchant Marine so obviously I love Sailors!

I decided to layer Starboard and White Cap because well...I wanted to! :o)

Starboard: Hip and playful green crème
White Cap: Whimsical and sparkling multi-dimensional white
(descriptions courtesy of China Glaze)
My descriptions:
Starboard- An unusual and cheery medium bright green creme
White Cap- A sheer opal white with gold micro glitter/shimmer
This is very color accurate
New camera takes pretty pictures doesn't it!?
Oh look at the sparklies
This is 2 coats of Starboard with 1 coat of White Cap topped with Seche Vite

Application: Starboard was great, nearly opaque in one coat
White Cap is very sheer so personally I would not likely wear it alone but layered it gives beautiful shimmer in one very thin coat.

Formula: Great formula! Starboard is a perfect creme and applies like a dream. White Cap is rather thin and slightly runny, which makes it perfect for layering.

Has China Glaze made you a naughty Nauticalista?

I hope very soon to be back to steadily posting 3-4 times a week.
I did a little guest post over at Overallbeauty's blog

Kim got in and is now carrying these sweet little skully nail decals and being
the sweetheart that she is, she thought of me when they came in and sent me a set because she knows that like her I am a skully freak! (Thanks Kim you rock)
I did a simple mani with them over BB Couture Nightmare and I love it a ton!
Nightmare is a deep vampy jelly red with red micro shimmer
You can see the rest of the pictures here
And I believe they will be on as well

Thank you for not throwing rocks at me for abandoning you all!

Zoya Intimate Collection, Marley and her kitty

Marley is a sweet lilac creme with a touch of secret shimmer....
Did you meet Marley's kitty?
Mew just looked like she belonged with Marley
The formula is very good for a pastel, slightly streaky on the first coat but smooth and perfect with the second. The pigment is really great on this as well.

Nail Art for Ana!

The beautiful Anastasia of Lipsticks & Lightsabers and I were talking
color (big shock right) and she showed me her WOW character which sparked an idea...OK several but one nail art related idea stuck in my mind. I also realized that I do not own and Cyan colored polish...not one out of 800+ polishes...not 1 single cyan.
(This is cyan)
So I had to franken one...ummm in the dark by laptop did not come out cyan, more blue green dusty meh. But it was the closest I had so I used it and added my fun nail art that is supposed to resemble Ana's character.

I stamped my nails using China Glaze Grape Pop and Chez delaney plate that I cannot recall the number of.
P.S. My camera is getting worse and now has added grainy macro shots to the list of you suck traits that is causing it to be replaced in the next couple of weeks.
I stamped the wings from one image first and then went back and carefully added the hot girl over to give the winged woman affect...sort of.
It's not perfect but I hope you like it!
