Sweet as Apple Pie

This manicure is for My Favorite Things Challenge. We are on Day 4, Favorite Food.

Me and apple pie go way back, lol. I can't tell you why b/c it is only between the two of us. 

As for as my base I used Sinful Color's Cross My Heart, and stamped the checker with Konad's white special polish. The nude base and the pie color is Essense Nude It, and the dark brown color is Sinful Colors Nirvana. The pie topping is acrylic.

Favorite Things Challenge: Favorite Animal

I don't have a favorite animal, so I did my husband's favorite animal, the elephant.

So sorry for the blurry pic, still learning my camera (at least that is what I want to believe). 

I used Barielles, U-Concrete-Me, and Milani's A Rose My Lady for the pink. 

All lacquer, I think I am on a roll working with polish to do nail art :)

Ms. Pacman, Pastel Version

This is my entry for the Geeky Nails Challenge for games and gaming and one of the three challenges I am involved with. 

I was really struggling coming up with a geeky game. I just chose Ms. Pacman, but I wanted to add my own spin to it by making it pastel.

I used China Glaze Elephant Walk as the base, and the rest of the polish is actually done with polish instead of acrylic paint. 

Here is the challenge details (only 1 more to go)

Favorite Things Challenge: Day 2, Nail Polish

Hmmm... I don't have a favorite polish b/c almost every polish I own is my favorite. But I will pick a brand if I have to. 

Drum Roll Please.

Wet n Wild Megalast!!!! 

I picked this brand b/c I am a cheapanista, and overall I love these polishes. They last for a super long time. Compared to all the other brands, I can wear these for 6-7 days without any sign of chippage (made up word). 

paint drip nails

The base color is a soft baby pink called Sugarcoat, the other purple is On a Trip, the light mint blue is I need a Refresh-mint, and the bright pink is called Candy-licious. 

I wish they would come out with more colors or collections, because I will get each and every single one.

Let me know what do you think about them, and how long they last on your nails?

Starting 31 Day of Nails Challenge

I know... another challenge! lol. But this one is simple b/c I will not do it consecutively, there is a band of nail polish addicts that are joining and this challenge is hosted by Kimber at Kimber Lacquer Korner. Click on her blog name and it will take you there if you want to start (leave a comment). 

We will do them every 3 days, which I think is very doable, and it will start next week.

 Will you join too?

Favorite Things Challenge: Day 1, Favorite Color

I am starting a new challenge, My Favorite Things Challenge, by Ooh La La Polish.

I am really enjoying challenges. Since today is day 1, my favorite color is purple/violet. It has been since I was a child, although, it did change once, but I had to come back to purple.

I also have a 1st grader, and when she is coloring things of purple, grapes are always included.

My grape color is by Barielle's Grape Escape

I am screaming...for some Ice Cream

I am experimenting to find the best white nail polish. I used Orly's Dayglow. IT was difficult to work with, so I am still searching. So far I like China Glaze Snow. What are your favorite white nail polishes?
