31DC2012 - Day 19: Galaxies

Oooh! I love galaxy nails. However, everyone else seems to do them better than me. When I first started doing my nails again (last August), I tried them and loved the look, but I had horrible nails and cuticles. You can see my old ones here

I'm not satisfied with these, however, they suffice! The glitter is more apparent IRL. :D

Polishes used:
Maybelline Color Show Twilight Rays
China Glaze Pink Voltage
Sation Tardy Tart
Sinful Colors Firefly
Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed
Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor
OPI Alpine Snow

Sponge, dotter tool

31DC2012 - Day 18: Half Moons

Hello lovelies! Today's mani was a first for me! I had never done a half moon mani up until this morning. I couldn't find hole reinforcers for the LIFE of me, so I had to make do with labeling dots. =/ 

I like the look, but I like it more on longer nails. 

Polishes used:
Nail-Aid Ultra Fast Growth
A England Lady of the Lake 
Sation Tardy Tart
Anise Smouldering Eyes
Hong Kong Girl

31DC2012 - Day 17: Glitter

Hello! I'm finally caught up with blog posts. Woohoo!

I took a little trip to Seattle over the weekend to see some friends and to go to the Puyallup (state) fair! I had such a good time. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the animal pics and the cupcake pictures from hello, cupcake in Tacoma, WA. Mmm. 

A few stores down from hello, cupcake is a store called Purple Peacock. It has an array of gorgeous jewelry and handmade items. One display had butter LONDON. While over priced, I really wanted to try them all because I hadn't had a chance to, EVER. I ended up wanting them all, mostly Snog, Slapper, Trout Pout and The Black Knight. I went with the latter. 

Here are the pics for glitter day! 

It is absolutely stunning. I love it!

31DC2012 - Day 16: Tribal Print Nails

Hello! I know that you all see the tribal prints often enough. I did some bright neon ones awhile back here and some warm toned ones here.

For these tribal print nails, I decided to some random ones, mixing the usual and then totem pole figures! Check 'em out!

Oh, and every color beside the white and black used for this mani were previously untried, thanks to a cool grab bag I purchased from The TraceFace Philes

Polishes used:
No base
Brilliant Nails Soft Nougat 
China Glaze Mahogany Magic
Julep Gunta
Sinful Colors Firefly
Bettina Resort Mojito
