Orange nails for Marie.

Today I have an orange mani with a purpose.

I was scrolling through my news feed on Instagram the other day and came across quite a few manis that were orange and tagged with the hashtag #orangenailsformarie.  Marie has been fighting leukemia and, according to what I was able to find out, it is a tough fight at the moment.  So in support of Marie, and in hopes that seeing such a large backing behind her, a new spark of motivation will give her that extra push needed because cancer does suck.  Although I don't know you Marie, I support you 100% in your fight against this beast and you WILL conquer.

So in honor of Marie...





All my love, thoughts, and prayers.

P.S.  This color is called "Year Round Sunshine" by Anise.  A very fitting name, don't you think?

Black tie optional.

Good morning lovelies!!  So, as soon as I heard about the new line of Hard Candy polishes that was released at Walmart a while back, I rushed to my local store and picked up a few of them.  Unfortunately, they have been sitting in my giant box of untrieds for weeks on end.

Black tie optional is a glitter top coat with black and white hexes of varying sizes as well as black bar glitters.  I have been trying to decide what I wanted to use this over, and last night it finally hit me - neon!




I paired this with OPI Black Onyx and layered it over Orly Glowstick (white undies are Sally Hansen White On).



This is also my first time using Orly Glowstick, and whoa.  This sucker is bright!  And paired with the black it just glows that much more.

I hope you all enjoy this look!

Until next time...

A girly gradient.

Hi all!  See!  I told you I would have two posts today!  :)

This is a gradient using Sinful Colors Beverly Hills, a light lavender with a hint of pink, and China Glaze Make An Entrance, a gorgeous pink.  I love the way that these two colors compliment each other!



And of course, you know I had to top it off with China Glaze Fairy Dust ;)





I haven't done a gradient in a while, so I thought today would be a great day to do one again.  I hope you all like it as much as I do!

Until next time...

Zoya Storm.

Hi everyone!  Today I will have TWO posts for all of you, which will hopefully make up for my lack of posting the past week.

I finally got my hands on Zoya Storm, and the moment I swatched it on my nail wheel I wanted to kick myself for not getting it when it was released.  It is such a stunner!!  Black with a scattered holographic twist - pure love.

Here are some sun shots:






And one in the shade:


I seriously can't believe that I just got this.  I love it so much!

Until next time (or the next post!)...
