Hi everyone! I have for you all a swatch of an absolutely PERFECT polish. It is Glitter Gal's Red Sparkle (Type O) from their Sparkle line that was recently discontinued.......BOO HOO!! I have the whole collection.....thankfully but i'm still devastated they discontinued it. It's probably the one collection in my stash i'm most in love with. I cannot properly express to you all how amazing this polish is.....STUNNING doesn't quite cover it!I'm not a red girl, never have been but this isn't your ordinary average red. It literally glows on your fingers in any lighting......heck you don't even need lighting! Driving home tonight in the pitch black i'm babbling excitedly to the hubs about this polish because it's STILL glowing and I can barely see anything else in the vehicle!! He actually came home from work today and and said nice color honey......he NEVER comments .......I ask, he gives a perfunctory reply without really looking. I mean really......this is for sure a favorite for 2012!! Everything about this polish is an 11/10........application, formula.....it's pretty much a one coater if you apply liberally. First coat looks like a brighter cherry red, second coat is deeper red. I had a hard time capturing the true color...so actual color is a little deeper red than my pics but everything else is accurate. No flash people. And I bought all my Glitter Gal's so my gushing is cause I truly freakin' LOVE this polish. Ok, i'll shut up and post now......;)

Hi everyone! Getting closer to X-mas...oh boy!! So I was inspired to try out my new China Glaze Running in Circles....perfect X-mas green. Then I went shopping for more X-mas tree decorations......and since my tree is a peacock theme I added some peacock feathers. I'll shut up now and post the goods......no one's here to read, right? lol This is picture heavy and i've shown it in steps...hope you like :)Then I sponged on some Ziv...probably one of my more subtle gradients..like how it turned out.
Base: CG Running in Circles
Sponged with Zoya Ziv

Hi everyone...today I wanted to contribute to the nail communities effort to support the tragedy that occurred in Connecticut yesterday. My thoughts are with all those families that have lost so much and for a community shaken with such an awful tragedy. I hope the powers that be will wake-up and do what's necessary so this kind of thing can't happen again! Crazy/evil people are still going to exist but hopefully they won't have access to the kind of weapons that can do this kind of harm in mere moments.
Base: Glitter Gal Light as a Feather (3coats)
Topcoat: China Glaze Fairy Dust (1 coat)
Stamps: BM07 & BM320, Konad white
Peace is such a far off dream but one we should never lose sight of...hold your families close <3

Well it's the 3rd and last week for Nail Polish Canada's Holiday Nail Challenge! I was inspired by my sisters glorious Christmas tree..i've always (not so secretly) wanted her tree and was super jealous when she found it at Superstore of all places! I have looked for one like it ever since but haven't gotten lucky:( It's no ordinary white tree...it's the PERFECT white tree!! Fluffy and perfect....and on top of that..as if that's not good enough..she's decorated it with all pink!! So I stole a picture off Facebook..it's not the whole tree but you get the idea.
