Halloooo, I have this major problem...it's called never-do-my-nail-at-a-good-time-itis. Haha yeaah so I always end up doing my nails right before I have to go somewhere and they are never dry enough so I end up somehow ruining them. I even did another design for halloween but I completely ruined them when I went out and I refuse to show you the disaster that occurred. I like to take pictures of my nails in the day light and I always do my nails at night time so I wait until the next day to photograph them and by then something usually goes wrong. Yeah obviously I have not learned from this mistake. So if any of my photos if the topcoat looks kinds rough, well it's because it is-but it's completely my fault not the topcoat lol. Hopefully you guys can overlook that since I hardly have time time to sit there for 2 hours to do my nails and wait for them to dry completely.
Anyway I've changed my nail shape back to square nails.. not because I didn't like the oval-I loved it! Unfortunately with the move my nails took a good beating and some of them broke so I gave up and cut them all off
I wasn't sure if I wanted to show you guys this picture because I didn't like it but heyy why the hell not? I put OPI's Pepe's Purple Passion and didn't do anything special, well because I hadn't really found the time.
But once I did find the time I created this manicure.
I used Barielle U-Concrete-Me and Color Club Sugarplum Fairy for the glitter which translated terribly in this picture so I took another one under artificial light which as you can is incredibly holographic!
I liked this a lot actually sort of felt like I had Jewelry on that ring finger there haha
Good Morning! Today I have for you a design that I did a couple days ago.I felt like something simple but not too simple. Complicated but not too complicated. And this...is where I pretty much ended off, having to do it in a short amount of time.
Since this is the first time I had gotten/heard of/even used a barielle shades polish, I felt like it should be incorporated in my first mani after the grand haul!
So for today I got for you a mani using one barielle shades polish, one OPI, and a regular black striper. The barielle is called Grape Escape and the OPI, from the DS collection is called Temptation.
I'm gonna say that I was really happy with the result of the quality of the barielle polish. I only had to use on coat and it went on smooth like butter... absolutely amazing!!
Okay! So I actually did this manicure about a month ago for Breast Cancer Awareness Day at my school. I actually think this is really cute but would change a couple aspects in it now that I look back at it.
So I used Yum Gum by Color Club for the base color and Mod About You by OPI for the ribbon.
Can we ever stop? Yeah, I don't think so, at least not in the near future! And the way we're going it seems we'd rather have nothing else but polishes and nail related items! Anyway we're super excited to show you what we've got, I believe this is our longest haul yet!
Orly: Candy Cane Lane, Winter Wonderland, and Meet me Under the Mistletoe

Did we mention how much we love Winners?? We really really do!! Most of these polishes were purchased from there!! If you are as crazy as we are, you should definitely go check it out! Super excited to do our nails now!
Back agian, Selene's back tell a friend... hehe yeaahh so we've been MIA for a WHILE, I really didn't expect it to take this long. Theia and I have just finished moving to a different house and we got a lot more busy then we expected. It took much more time from us then we wanted and we really did want to get back asap but we're both in school and I'm also working so all of that together left very little time for ourselves. And once we got off the routine of writing post it started getting hard for us to get back on it even though we have plenty of things to show you!
Anyway. I made sure to still take pictures for you so you could see the different manis I've been sporting AND I know it's been a while since Halloween but I have two designs I've been wanting to show you and I just didnt have the time to post it. So I'll post it here quickly for you:
If you want to know the polish I've used on any of these looks just comment and I'll be sure to answer! Right now I'm at school and I have to go! See ya later! -Selene
