Good morning!  It's freaking gorgeous right now in Seattle!  It's effing cold as eff, but the sun is shining off the frosty rooftops.....I LOVE that!  I'm need to take the dog out for a frosty morning walk!

I wish I could blog every day so I wouldn't get so behind, but it's just not possible!  Full time job just sucks up all my time!  I feel like there's really just not enough time in the day to do what I want! Hate that!

Anyways, on to the spam.....picture heavy as always....

Sally Hansen's Nail Prisms in Ruby Diamond

The holo isn't a strong linear holo, but still quite holo.

China Glaze's Loft-y Ambitions.  I got this at Sally's on clearance.  Always nice to have a dark vampy burgundy in your collection!

Added a coat of Essie's Shine of the Times to my accent finger, cause well, why not!?!

Zoya Izzy.  This came in my November Birchbox (which I don't even post anymore cause they seem to be so boring!).  I love little mini Zoya bottles!

Added a coat of China Glaze's Moulin Rouge to the ring finger.

Then I got bored with it so figured I should add a coat of OPI's Silver Shatter.  I hate shatter, but felt I needed the silver one....still on the fence about the silver one.

OPI's Grape...Set...Match.  This very much reminds me of a lighter version of OPI's Ink.  I was quite surprised to see that this was duochrome on the nail.  It flashes bright pink in the right lighting.

I LOVE purples, but I was just meh about this.  I found the OPI Serving up Sparkle set at TJ Maxx for like 7 or 8 bucks.  They had all the Serena Williams OPI sets, even the most recent one.

And last but not least is my attempt at a free hand french mani.  This right here is why I don't do nail!  I used a coat of Essie's Potato Fields as a base across the nail.  I LOVE this color, it's the perfect sheer nail color.  I added Orly's Pointe Blanche to the tips with a coat of Orly's Twilight over the whole nail for the touch of shimmer.  It did actually look nice from afar, but close up you can see the lines aren't at all strait, and that drives me nutso!!

I guess it's time for me to clean the house...and walk the dog.....and work out.....and do xmas shopping.....and birthday shopping....and grocery shopping.......ugg.....


  1. Definitely a beautiful day but oh so cold!!! I love all those colors especially that ruby diamond one! I am on the search for those but haven't found any yet! How do you point your nails so good?! I feel like mine are always a mess after!

  2. @ Miranda - This is a great article on cleanup . All you need is some acetone and a good brush. I used a flat, strait tipped one that's pretty stiff. Works well for me. I found the last of the Sally Hansen Prism's at my local Ross.

  3. Love The Sally Hansen nail prisms can't get them here in Australia :(
