Brief catchup and a mani

I've been on a very long break from blogging and the nail world in general but I've been thinking about the blog lately so here I am. I'm not going to make promises that I'll post regularly but I will be around. A lot has happened since I stopped blogging, life got fun and I started doing everything I wanted with no one to tell me no anymore! White water rafting! Pierced nose! Green hair, purple hair,  mardi gras hair! Dinner theatre! I bought a big girl bed and a real couch! My brother came back to town and he introduced me to a great group of friends and the most amazing guy. I bought a house! We got engaged and now we're planning a wedding for this December ❤
I'm at a loss right now on what my wedding nails will be but I've got a few more months to figure that one out!  

This is todays mani. 
Chg Sugar Plums. I love the holo glitter in this but it's not really visible indoors.

Nubar Jelly Beans Review Part 3

And last but not least the final 3 polishes from the Nubar Jelly Bean Collection and my favorites :)

Blueberry-opaque medium vibrant blue creme


Blue Raspberry-semi opaque light turquoise creme
Kiwi-opaque pastel green creme



The last 2 colors looked so perfect sitting next to each other I decided that I would do the 2 colors together and it turned out just as I had imagined!

I think the Nubar Jelly Bean Collection is a great one for anyone that is a fan of jellyish cremes and pastels with Blueberry and Lemon being an excellent bright solid addition to the collection.

Nubar Jelly Beans Review Part 2

Part 2 of our Nubar Jelly Beans - All 3 coats

Toasted Marshmellow- opaque light caramelized brown creme


Cherry-semi-opaque bright orange red creme


Strawberry- semi-opaque light modern pink creme



All of these had what I think was a good formula but honestly I did not like Toasted Marshmellow, it such an odd color, I also posted this on my facebook and didn't get any positive compliments on it. Cherry just wasn't what I think of when I think "cherry", Strawberry I did like since it was such a delicate clean subtle color but then again I have a lot pink to my skin tone.

Nubar Jelly Beans /Polka Dot Collection Review Part 1

I know I am extremely late on this review but better late than never right?

This is the Nubar Jelly Beans Collection which reminds me a lot of Easter which is right around the corner .

First up we've got Nubar Lemon which is described as an opaque bright yellow cream. I used 3 coats of Lemon.

Indoors

Sunshine

Lemon with 2 coats Nubar Black Polka Dot


Grape is described as a semi opaque medium modern purple cream. I used 3 coats for Grape as well.

Indoors

Sunshine

My camera had a very hard time focusing on the Nubar White Polka Dot but here it is

Both the Black and White Polka Dot are great glitters I personally love the black since its not as common to find a nice black glitter over a silver/white. I used 2 coats of each glitter for good coverage.

Classy skulls and glossbones :)

I had the perfect idea to use OPI Skulls and Glossbones with the girly skull from konad since you know gloss girly classy :) I used CC Revvvolution for the stamp color and Skulls and Glossbones is a boney kinda color :)

1st Halloween Mani!

I'm waay behind in the seasonal manis so I'm going to try and bust a few out over the next week.

This is 3 coats of Chg Skyscraper and my  stamp is I think Chg Sci-fi. The witch design is from bundle monster. I thought te design and color kinda went together perfectly since witches fly and all :)

Strawberry wine

Ohhh ahh pretty sooo late to the party!   I've had Chg Strawberry Fields since it was released and for some reason I'm just now using it, I have to stop doing that!  This is 3 coats of pink perfection.

I like all these pics! The hello kitty is a cube that its into the square hole in my cube dash..I'm not sure what its for but a gal in the cube/car forum makes these :)

None of it was ever worth the risk. You, are, the only exception

Holo holo holo! I love holo's.  This is 2 coats of Color Club Worth the Risque.  I was super impressed at how little draging there was and how well this is wearing. Normally holo colors chip likeno bodies business. I did use a sticky base coat this time so maybe that's what is helping.

Can you ever go wrong with holo?! Rainbow on my fingers!

True love awwww

I think we all know by now I'm really slow when it comes to "new" colors.  I buy them but then I just never get around to using them and feel like I should be using my others.  I should probably get over that considering how many awesome polishes could just be waiting for me...oh like Milani Molten Rock! This rocked my socks ladies, seriously! I don't think I have one Milani that hasn't blown me away :) Now if only I could find a guy like that (hehe)



Gorgeous green

This is 2 coats of Nubar Verde, excellent formula. I love green.  I love foily finishes.  Verde is a dark forrest green to me with gold finish which is an auto win for me.  Yay! Might just be my favorite Ubar.  What's yours?
