NOTD: Wet n Wild Dreamy Poppy + Sally Hansen Glass Slipper

Well hello there everyone!  I want to show you my NOTD: Wet n Wild Dreamy Poppy layered with Sally Hansen Glass Slipper.  It's been freezing cold and cloudy where I live, so I wanted something bright and cheery on my nails.  Dreamy Poppy is a bright, pink creme that reminds me of Barbie Dolls.  For some added sparkle I used Sally Hansen Glass Slipper, a white flakie topcoat.

This is 2 coats of Dreamy Poppy, 1 coat of Glass Slipper, and a coat of quick dry top coat.

On a related note, yesterday was my birthday, and my wonderful husband got me an awesome gift!  I am so excited that I have to share with everyone.  He bought me a 15 piece nail art brush set that has practically any brush I could ever need, plus a dotting tool.  I've been saying for awhile that I wanted some new brushes but never bought any for myself, so this is a perfect gift. :)  So I guess you'll be seeing more nail art in the future!

As always, thanks for reading and have a great day! :)

Happy New Year!

Hello everyone!  I want to wish you all a happy new year!  2012 flew by so quickly, I can hardly believe it's already 2013.  I guess that's what happens when you're busy though.

I wanted to show you all a fun little design I made using some nail art and craft glitters.  This almost looks like it could be glitter topcoat, but it's just loose glitter placed randomly on the nail.

I started with Island Girl Aloha Luau, a purple cream with a dusting of silver shimmer.  Then, I randomly placed some large black and iridescent hex glitters on the nail.  The black glitters are matte and the iridescent glitters shift between pink and green.  I also used some iridescent nail art bar glitter to add a little extra sparkle.  I finished the look with a coat of quick dry top coat, and since the glitter is pretty sparse, I only needed one coat to smooth it all out.
