Three coats of Essie Marshmallow followed by one coat of Julep Melissa followed by Nubar 2010! My nails look exactly like opals, it’s gorgeous.

Nothing, yet! I’m waiting til tomorrow to paint them CG Four Leaf Clover with a gold/green flaky polish.

I’m actually wearing ombre nails varying from very light purple to very dark purple/almost black in a bunch of different polishes.
First time trying and I love it:D

‘Pink & White’ gel nails. The base is clear and the tips look like gold chunky flecks. They are way grown out and I’m debating if I should just let them grow on out and do natural for a while or get a new set. Gotta wait until next Fri for payday to see what I want to do.

Revlon’s Charming. I’d been on a hunt for the perfect creamy pastel lavender and I found it with this shade. I can already tell it’s going to be a spring favourite of mine.

this seems like a ton of nail polish but i really like it and i think it’s cute for spring.
2 coats of MAC Abalone shell as a base
random and different sized dots from the tips down about 1/3 of the nail of essie turquoise&caicos, essie lapis of luxury, and opi fly from nicki minaj collection

China Glaze Celtic Sun πŸ™‚
My birthday is on Saturday so I’m doing it as big as I can with my nails haha:)

I’m wearing Orly Space Cadet, a duochrome. I’m switching over to a green for St. Patty’s Day – haven’t decided which one yet.

GOSH Crispy Coral! I just did them actually! Im typing very carefully….

Christine – I have always wondered, do you just paint one hand for swatching/ testing colours?

Essie Ole Caliente πŸ™‚ but today I’m going to take it off. I’ve been wearing it for 5 days now and still looks gorgeous πŸ™‚

It lasted on you for 5 days? You must not have natural nails! I cannot get more than 2 days out of a mani

nails, inc. Serpentine. I wanted to make a reverse French manicure with LancΓ΄me Jolis Matins, but it turned out to be hard doing it half-drunk with vodka. LOL!

China Glaze Fast Track.I must say I love China Glaze’s Hungergames collection. The best one they’ve done in a while.

China Glaze Smoke And Ashes with Luxe and Lush on top on one hand, Mac Breezy Blue with Nails Inc The Wyndham on the other. Of course it’s all coming off in a minute for more swatchy goodness!

Nails inc Basil Street. My Favourite polish in the world, if they were ever to discontinue this shade i would hunt for as many bottles of the shade in the world to keep forever.

I got my first shellac mani yesterday and went with CND Wildfire which is a bright fire engine red. I do not know how I will manage TWO WEEKS without changing my nail color but I wanted to try it once!

Hands- L’oreal After Hours (really pretty dark navy-ish blue, but damn is it hard to get off!)
Toes- Jessie’s Girl Julie G Collection Mermaid’s Lagoon (turquoise).

Estee Lauder Pure Color in Rosa Rosa — gorgeous color and it’s surprisingly chip-free so far (their old formula, not so much)!

Nothing on my hands, starting night shifts tonight, no nail polish allowed – boo!

On toes – OPI calafornian raspberry.

Tips: Zoya Holly with INM Northern Lights Holo topcoat (green rainbows seemed appropriate for St. Patty’s Day!)
Toes: 2 coats of Essie Orange, It’s Obvious? with 1 coat of China Glaze Riveting over the top.

I’m wearing China Glaze Stone Cold from the Hunger Games Collection! Thank you for reviewing those! I love them so much.

Nailtek foundation II, China Glaze ‘Oh Audrey,’ and Nailtek Intensive therapy topcoat. It’s a wonderful combination!

One coat of L.A.Colors Color Craze in Twilight, 2 coats SH HD in Laser, 1 coat SH HD in Spectrum, 1 coat $OPI Blasted Top Coat in Indigo Blasted, & all topped with shiny top coat. It looks amazing on my short nails: classic dark blue nails with a twist.

I’ll have green toenails by tonight. Probably ChG Glittering Garland, but I may throw some of Orly’s Here Comes Trouble on there too.

Colour Club – Bluetopia, with a a Deborah Lippmann – Lady Sings the Blues and OPI – Disco Ball glitter gradient =)

Essie Licorice with Ozotic #505 on top. I saw your review of 505 and ran to ebay and bought the only bottle I could find of it. I am SO GLAD I did because holy cow it looks AMAZING. The teal, emerald and purple duochrome is to die for!

Essie “Lilacism” on fingers and toes with Pure Ice “Spitfire” on both ring fingers and both big toes! So girly!!! πŸ™‚

I just did that – they do need a rest now and again. I use that time to do intensive moisture treatments that I know don’t go through lacquer.

Essie’s Shine of the Times over China Glaze’s Smoke n Ashes…..looks evil – that’s what my sister said πŸ™‚

Sally Hansen Triple Strong- this is amazing. It really does strengthen the nails (at least while it’s on), and really makes polish stay on with no chips, fading, etc, and is surprisingly easy to remove. I find that when I use this with a dark polish, the color is actually *easier* to remove.
