Rockstar Manicure

Yep, I got my first Rockstar Manicure today! It’s safe to say that I will be returning for more to achieve this glitz & glam look! I think everyone has heard of shellac polish, right? Well, they apply your shellac color of choice on your nails and then place glitter of your color choice into the wet shellac which creates this high sparkle effect. Then your nails dry and harden under the uv light and a second coat is applied so that you have a smooth nail vs. a bumpy nail like you feel with regular glitter polish. The beauty of this whole thing is that it last two weeks before its time for a new manicure! Well worth the money! Plus, you feel like a ROCKSTAR with your Rockstar Nails. Hope everyone parties like a ROCKSTAR tonight and has a HAPPY NEW YEAR! See you in 2013! 🙂

Holiday Nails

I’m getting a little carried away over here with Christmas around the corner (haha) but its my favorite time of the year! I couldn’t resist doing something festive to my nails! So, I used the OPI base coat “Don’t Touch My Tulip” and Red tips (instead of your typical white french manicure tips) with Butter London Polish “Chancer” which has a glitter. It creates a nice sparkle and finished with green stripes on the ring finger. FUN! 🙂

Glitter Polish

I recently did a post sharing with you the nail lacquer I purchased at Victoria Secret called “Game On” the picture makes it look more black then the true navy color it is and I also purchased the gold glitter nail lacquer named “Supercharged.” It has pieces of regular size glitter and larger gold chunks as well! You can use to polish your nails like I did below or you could also do a glitter french manicure! FUN, I’m really enjoying all the nail art lately! 🙂

Game On

Clearly, I’m not going to be a hand model but I like to share my nail art and pinterest inspired nails with YOU! Right, now at Victoria Secret you can Mix n Match nail polish and lip gloss, it’s four for $20. Great deal! Victoria Secret Nail Lacquer “Game On” (its cross between a navy and deep purple)…Fun Fall Color! So, I polished my nails with the lacquer and applied ….are you sure ready? Christmas stencil (haha) it worked. I had to substitute since I didn’t have nail tape. Just cut then strips and press into the polish. The stencil had small stars attached so those were placed on the ring finger. Let dry and apply a clear coat. Why not? It’s fun for a couple days.

Glitter Love Affair

My new line of butter polishes that I purchased all have glitter in them, so its been quite the love affair with glitter these days! I polished all my nails with the Butter London line “The Black Knight” which is black polish with glitter and I polished my ring finger with a classic OPI color “Lincoln Park at Midnight” which is a deep purple. I like polishing one or mail nails a different color some days for FUN! 🙂 It’s polish…Go Crazy!

Butter London

I’m in love with the Butter London line of polish! How fun is this green with the green glitter top coat? You can add a flair to your nails with this Duo! Ulta and Nordstrom carries this line or you can order online, the name of Duo is Henley Regatta and Slapper.
Note: Polish is formaldehyde, toluene and DBP colour, creating a more natural polish for your nails. 🙂

LCN Polish Seal

Ok, so this product has had a lot of hype lately and I hope it lives up to everything it says it is! After, seeing it on the Today show and hearing that this polish seal keeps your nails from chipping for two weeks, I was on board! Going to the nail salon, getting shellac and gelish can get costly and if you look at sephora they sale no chip kits for $150. So, when I saw this LCN polish seal was only $22 my interest was sparked. All you need is the clear coat polish seal and a 60w light bulb in your home. Yep, supposedly you apply the polish seal and hold your fingers under a 60w light bulb for 3 minutes each and your polish will not chip for two weeks. I guess I will know soon enough since I just ordered mine! Seeing is believing. 🙂
Below was an insert from LCN website about their product …
The perfect protection for every nail polish! Polish Seal is a UV curing top coat that can be easily removed with LCN’s acetone free removers. Polish Seal provides the nail polish with long-lasting protection and a high-gloss and scratch resistant surface. Suitable for both natural and artificial nails. Polish Seal hardens in just 3 minutes in a UV lamp or under a minimum 60 watt light bulb!
