This looks quite happy and colorful but its much more subdued and would be a great glitter
topper for any creme/frost color
Here is a pic of my quick Mani..I cut all my nails off as so many of them were split and half ripped off anyway..pisses me off  because I baby them so much and they still break so easily. I can also only get my left hand nails to grow long ..my right hand just wont cooperate!! Grrr!
BOYFRIENDS CHOICE:
I had wanted to do a nice mint green mani with glitter but he loves the purple!!
My nails are SOOOO JACKED UP..Sorry!!
Beautiful Purple by Julep in Morgan and with a diagonal glitter french in 
Spoiled by WetnWild in Papa-Paparazzi.
And a random picture of my Cat - CLEMENTINE..

Weekend Mini Haul

Hello Everyone who still comes here...lol.  Its been so long Im not sure if anyone is still interested but I think its fun so Im gonna continue to do it.  So I went on Friday to my local Bealls Outlet store to do my Under 50 15% off Friday shopping and what do i find???  COLOR CLUB COLLECTIONS!!! $8.99 + 15% off  Thats right!!  Fiesta Collection, Take Wing Collection and Poptastic Collection.  I had two of them in my cart for an hour ( i already have take wing) and then i put them back because I swore I would buy no more new nailpolish!! My addiction is way out of control.   I finished my shopping and checked out with NO POLISH. I was given a $5 off coupon for my next shopping spree though...so dont ya know...I was back there on Saturday morning and got me a POPTASTIC COLLECTION!!!  for $4.99  ..I couldnt help it...so then I went to Walgreens and busted out another $5.00 for the 4 mini Essie Polishes... so much for self control.!!! What a sucker!!
I can't tell you how HAPPY I am with that COLORCLUB purchase. Each polish is beautiful. Some are fully opaque after 1 coat!!  Except for yellow..you're looking at a good 3 coats there.
 So I did this jacked up Pink Lemonade Mani ( cause it sounds cute but the mani sucks) It was supposed to be a reverse french. I used those sticky things you put on paper to keep the holes from ripping. I got mine at the dollar store and the sticky part sucked and didn't work too well and that is why i put the stars on the line ( the line being way too far up the nail to begin with)

In my mind I see perfection, but my hands suck.  That is why i typically dont do nail art of any kind.
Anyway, I am loving all the new bright colors for spring ever since I did that mani with ZOYA Paz.
What are your favorite colors and manis for spring?? Leave me some comments ..let me know!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
