China Glaze Towel Boy Toy

WARNING: Pedicure pictures below, so please run now if that freaks you out lol.

Today I have on China Glaze Towel Boy Toy Neon blue, and I love it! I actually had to cheat and I had a professional manicure and pedicure today, and these are the results. She did paint closer to my cuticle then I do, but I think it looks messy and lots of my skin is painted lol. I didn't do any cleanup so you can see what it truly looked like leaving the salon. I'm leaving for vacation shortly and I just needed something quick, I now regret not doing it myself. I'm going to have to take out my cleanup brush and try and get this polish job looking exceptionable and the polish off of my skin lol.

Also I can't even think about how unsanitary the place was. If I don't get an infection it will be a miracle lol. She didn't like that I had my own polish (uh? that was never an issue before), She did not like that I made her clean any tools that touched me, they looked gross!!! She also didn't like that I wouldn't let her cut my cuticles. To make it all worse, she put on NO BASE COAT on!!! She put polish straight on the nail with nothing else!!!! Ughhh...I'm going to have smurf fingers for sure. I have never had such a horrible experience in my life! I tried explaining etc but she didn't speak English :( I was so frustrated I just wanted to get out as soon as I could. Then the topper she charged me 45$!!! I almost fainted. I have to say I'm shocked. I must really be out of the loop - those prices are insane. I could have bought a ton of drugstore polish for that. I learned a harsh lesson today DO IT YOURSELF or don't do it at all hahaha. I have to leave soon so I can't even redo it all. Soon as I get to my vacation destination I want it all off and going to change it elsewhere. I pray I find a better place.

The only good thing about today is my new shoes. Here are my new shoes and my bad pedicure lol.

and finally my flip flop shot lol

I have the ugliest toes of all time so sorry if this scares you LOL! :)

Hello Kitty Fauxnad plates and Nail Art Supplies Haul!

My Hello Kitty Fauxnad Stamping Plates have finally arrived - yippee! Thanks to the lovely rmccandlelight (for providing the site to order these from) I now have my plates!!! 


The above plates come in a set of all 6.  The website where these can be ordered is:

The Price is so reasonable as well and since I was ordering these I decided to get some other nail art supplies as well.  Everything was so cheap :)
Here are the other things I ordered as well.

These are oval shaped gems and I always think these are perfect for highlighting and creating flowers. So many colors as well!

Traditional Round Rhinestones

A Larger sized Round Rhinestone

Random Fun Shapes (half pieces so they lay flat)

Pearls in silver and gold (these are extra tiny but would work awesome for detailed nail work) 

And Rhinestone Stars (my Favorite type of rhinestone)

Remember you can click on any of the pictures above to get a closer look! I hope you enjoyed this type of post.  I usually do not do Haul pictures, but I was so excited about these I couldn't help not to lol.

I leave for vacation in 2 days so I will try squeezing in pictures of these items in use before I take off.  I will do my best.

Thanks for visiting today!

EDITED: the pictures do not do these rhinestones justice they sparkle sooo MUCH and that's always an issue for me when I buy them elsewhere. They are usually real poor quailty and flat looking, but these are really great and sparkle so much!

Smitten with Mittens in Daylight :)

As promised, here are the pictures I took this morning of OPI's Smitten with Mittens in the Sunlight.  If you missed last nights post (pictures of it indoors) check out yesterday's post Smitten with Mittens and Memorial Day

Here it is in Bright Sunlight - It's a stunner.  The pictures do not do it justice.

I also took this in a bit more shaded area as I felt that the complexity of this polish really shows better that way.

It's so packed full of goodness :)

HOLLY MOLLY lol This is just to die for! Check out the deep dimensions in this polish. Click the picture to make it larger (you won't be sorry lol). This picture really shows off it's true beauty. 

I hope you enjoyed this and I hope everyone is having a great week.  I'm hoping to post more soon, but Saturday I leave for a week vacation *Happy Dance*.  I'm headed to the Lake of the Ozarks and I'm excited.  I got a beautiful Condo there that I plan on enjoying every bit of it. It also has a giant jet tub and I plan on taking as many bubble baths as I can lol.  Guess I'm going to have to stock up on my LUSH! :)

Be back soon....

Smitten with Mittens and Memorial Day

My Memorial Day was quite hectic.  I went to the Movies and then I had a family gathering (like many of us must have had as well today), so this post is very late :) Better late than never, right?!

I wanted to do something more intricate to honor our brave Heroes for today, but I just didn't get around to it. Time was so limited. To make things easy I figured I would go with a basic red sparkle. I grabbed for Smitten with Mittens.  I totally think this is a gorgeous Polish, it wasn't as bright red as I wanted (more on the deep wine red color in most lightening), but it did the job :) in bright sunlight it does show as very sparkly bright red.

These pictures where taken indoors (as it's dark out already, and best I could do).

I'm not the greatest at applying red polish and this is basically a mess. This is 3 coats with a top coat. I slapped this on as I was running out of the door so it's probably the fastest mani I ever did in my life lol. I was headed out to see Sex in The City 2 (which I LOVED) and I just didn't have enough time for a perfect application.

The color is gorgeous on this one!

The only odd thing about this polish is in the bottle there is a very prominent gold glitter, but on the nail this does not show (at least not indoors out of sunlight).  It looks like a deep red glitter on the nail.

I know I see gold in there - do you? lol :)

Tomorrow when I can be out in bright sunlight, (which I didn't have today), I will take more pictures. I will post those tomorrow and give your the Outdoor sunlight perspective.  Stay tuned :) Hope you all had a great Memorial Day and I send out many prayers and blessings to all our war vets out there.
