O Christmas Tree - Candy Lacquer

Today I am wearing a super fun polish from Candy Lacquer. It's called O Christmas perfect is that! Now don't look too close guys lol. I do A LOT of cooking on the day before Christmas Eve and my hands were in water and preparing food all day. I always wait til after I finish cooking to do my nails so it's when they look there worst :)

This is sooooooooo fun and festive. It really reminds me of a big ole Christmas tree. This is one coat of OPI Red with two dabbed coats of O Christmas Tree.

I did have to fish out the stars in this one and place them, but that is the same case with all star shaped glitter polishes no matter who makes them. The great part is you can leave out the star glitters if you don't like them.

I feel like I have bright Christmas lights on my fingers lol. Also, I can not stop singing the song in my head...
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging
Not only green when summer's here,
But also when 'tis cold and drear.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging!
It just keeps playing over and over in my head when I look down at my nails. How super awesome fun and festive. 


 I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Holiday. I also say a little prayer for those that are not so fortunate. I hope to be back tomorrow for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but I make no promises. Similar to many of you Family will be a priority and I will post both days if I can. If I'm not back, please have a wonderful Christmas Eve and Day!

Rockin around the Tree - Naild'it

I have to say this was probably the hardest manicure that I ever had to photograph. I wanted something really different, but my camera just didn't want to play too nice tonight.

This is two coats of OPI Jade is the New Black layered with one solid coat of Naild'it Rockin Around the Tree. You can find this at Naild'it's Etsy shop here. They are currently on vacation so I can not promise that this will still be offered after the Holiday. I then topped everything with Hard Candy Matte Top Coat. The polish lost it's JADE color and turned more green once I started layering it, which is exactly what I was hoping for. 

It is really difficult to see in the photos, but once matted there is a gorgeous light green glitter that shines and stands out from all the darker green glitters. It is so pretty.

It came out exactly how I wanted it to. 

If you have not yet tried using a matte top coat on a glitter, you are really missing out. The depth of the glitter once it is matted is amazing, and not to be missed.  If you look carefully at my pinky finger you can see the different color glitters that are hiding.  I didn't see all the amazing color shades of the glitter until I used a Matte coat.

Again, this was a really tough polish to capture, but I promise it is beautiful.  Hope you guys like this and hope anyone in the path of Draco stayed safe today. Here in Missouri we had wind gusts hitting close to 60mph. There was a white out blizzard here most of the day and the wind has been howling non stop. I'm hoping by morning it is all gone.

Thanks for visiting :)

No Elfing Way

Evening everyone!

Tonight I have a super cool polish for you guys. This is No Elfing Way by Naild'it, and it is a LLarowe exclusive, meaning it can only be purchased at this LINK. As of tonight while I post this, the polish is still in stock and available.

This is three coats of my favorite green OPI nails polish, Greenwich Village, topped with 2 dabbed on coats of No Elfing Way.


   This polish had CRAZY glitters of all shapes and colors. There is no taco glitters here. It's totally smooth with two coats of Seche Vite. This is like a serious glitter party on your fingers.

I'm a glitter junky and this one is right up my ally lol. The formula was really easy to use. I dabbed on two coats and I did not have to use any thinner. 
Dabbing on the glitters helps to evenly disperse the glitters and allows you to 'place' the glitters where you want them to fall. I notice if I keep the brush somewhat on the dry side, more glitter sticks to the nail with the base color.

I also swatched this over a dark deep green and it looked equally as awesome.

If you haven't tried Naild'it, I highly recommend this brand. I have tons of these polishes and love ALL of them. There is not one yet that has disappointed me or let me down.

I hope you guys like this as much as I do. I LOVE IT!!!

Sweet Heart Pastello - Naild'it

Evening everyone,

First, I want to apologize for my last post. I featured Poison Apple by Once Upon a Polish, and did not even realize she closed up shop. SO Sorry. Sad to have seen that shop go, I have several OUP's and I wanted so many more, sighhhs....It just stresses the importance of grabbing an Indie polish when you first see it and fall in love. The shades come and go, and unfortunately the shops do too.

On a happier note, on to tonight's post. I'm featuring Sweet Heart Pastello by Naild'it. This color is a Mei Mei's Signatures exclusive, and can only be purchased at the following link HERE.

This is an amazing awesome pistachio colored polish. VERY VERY unique in color. It is unlike any other shade I own.

This is three coats of Sweet Heart Pastello on it's own. I did have to dig the hearts out on this polish, but that was pretty simple. Insert the brush in the bottle and give it a few swirls, and 9 times out of 10 a heart will stick. I just placed them with a toothpick. 

This polish has super pretty green, red, gold, and lavender glitters. Some surface very brightly and others say inbeded in the polish like a sandwich. I love these types of polishes, you get a lot of depth. 

Since this had such a pretty green and red, I thought it was perfect for my Holiday Polish swatches for this week. So Super Pretty. 

I love the shimmer that is buried in this polish. You can see the shimmer in the above picture on my ring finger, so very delicate and pretty.

So super pretty and shimmery. I look forward to wearing this to work tomorrow. My favorite part is the color combo of the glitters and all the different shapes. 

What do you guys think? Does anyone have this one in there collection? I ended up liking it so much more than I originally thought I would. I love surprises like this. 

As of today this is still available and in stock at the above link in the beginning of the post. Make sure you stay tuned for more Holiday polishes that will continue until Christmas Day!

Once Upon a Time I had a Poison Apple :)

Hi Guys,

Tonight I have a really fun polish for you. This polish is from Once Upon a Polish and it's called Poison Apple. All the polish I own from Once Upon a Polish are amazing. I did not know much about this Indie Polish maker when I originally ordered from them, it was just on order on a whim. I'm really glad I had that whim, they are fabulous to say the least.

UPDATE: When I originally posted this I had no idea that Once Upon a Polish closed up shop :( So sad to hear this, thus this polish is no longer available.

This is sparkly in your face glitter, and I love it!!! For those of use that have spent ALL our money on gifting presents for Christmas and have no money left for polish for ourselves, a polish like this is PERFECT. It's shiny and red 'Rudolph like', but not part of any 'Christmas' collection.  This is 2 coats of OPI Off Dreaming of Red with two coats of Poison Apple. Kelly helped me pick the base coat on this one :)

This was a polish I purchased months ago for no special reason, and it's perfect for Christmas. Tomorrow I'm going to the Mall in St Louis with my sweetie and we are having a shopping spree day. I wanted to wear something special. Kelly is feeling so much better, us going to the mall and shopping will be so fun. We split up and shop for each other, and then meet up at the end and head home lol. 

I want to again thank all of you that have asked about Kelly and how he is doing. He is recovering well, and I am excited about kicking back and enjoying the up coming Holiday with him. I feel really blessed this Holiday Season to have him here.

This is going to be so fun to wear for the day tomorrow. I start my day out early working from 7am til noon, and then Kelly picks me up and takes me off to St Louis (about an hour and half away) to shop our heads off lol. I'm so excitied about it!!! I need to pick up a few last minute surprises for him! 

Hope you guys like this!!! Stay tuned as the blog will be filled with Holiday Themed polishes all this week, and next week until Christmas. 

I would love to hear what you guys think about this. Please leave your comments below, I love to hear what you guys have to say :)

Naild'it - Don't Be Blue


I'm back with a gorgeous polish for your viewing pleasure. This is Don't Be Blue by Naild'it. I haven't done my nails in a long while since my Jet nails on Nov 18th, close to a month!!!  I finally got my nails done tonight :) This is exactly what I needed. Thanks Andrea!!! I was so thrilled to find this in my nail mail this past week.

UPDATE: This polish is a one of a kind. This was created just for me by Andrea, the owner of Naild'it, to help me get through everything that has happened over the past few months. It can not be purchased anywhere.

I promised you guys that after my husbands heart attack that I would do my best to get back here and bring the blog back to normal. This is my start. I have a bunch more Naild'it to show you over the next few weeks.  Stay tuned between now and Christmas for some major polish :)
This is 2 coats of MACS Blue India layered with 2 dabbed on coats of Don't Be Blue. The sparkle on this one is outta this world! 

Don't look too close at my cuticles, they really are in bad shape. This is probably the worse I have ever seen them lol. Once I start doing my nails more frequently, they will bounce back.

I love the large iridescent hex glitters in this. My pictures can not capture the colors that flash off the larger hexes.

I will be wearing this for work tomorrow :) I love it!

The scattered smaller black glitters and square iridescent glitters make this different then all other Indies I own. 

It was easy to apply with the *dabbing method*. The glitters stuck to the brush well and application was a breeze. Hope you guys like it - Thanks for coming to visit!

*This polish was created for me and can not be purchased at this time*
