Steelers Game Day!!!

Image
So here is my Steelers mani!!! GO STEELERS!!! Brought to you by Hit Polish- Steelers and Sally Hansen- SunnySide. The third picture down is a finger with no base coat... just the glitz!! Also, Hit Polish has been great for me to take off. Most times it just peels right off. I'm not sure if its because of the nail grow I use underneath or if it's the polish itself. If it's the latter half, Go Hit Polish!!! For  next week, I will NOT be using Sunny Side because it stains my nails very bad and when I remove my polish, it stains the rest of my finger and cuticles as well. So without further ado.... Go Steelers






Sinful Colors Magnetic

Image
So I wanted to try Sinful Colors Magnetic polish because it was reasonably priced at Target and I really liked the color. I ended up purchasing "Polar Opposites". The directions say put one coat on, let dry, add another coat and then use the magnet ring provided for 15-20 seconds to get starlike effect. Well a couple tips I learned during this experience. I had to do several coats because you have to use the magnet pretty much immediately after you put on the polish. Now, I have used magnetic polish before with my good friend Stephanie (over at alittlepolish.blogspot.com) and I don't remember having that panicked feeling to hurry and get the magnet over my finger. In this case, I did!!! Ahhhh the anxiety.. Haha! Anyway, the second realization is that there are apparently different magnetic patterns available. This polish has a starlike effect. The one I used with Stephanie was a wavelike effect. So when I purchase my next magnetic, I will be sure to pay attention to this…

Hit Polish Review

Image
So I bought, errr...ummm...5, polishes from Rachel Steele on her Etsy shop- D&R Apothecary Hit Polish. I was a little nervous at first because for a mini bottle it was between around $3 each!! I took the plunge because, quite frankly, I wanted a cute Steelers themed glitter. I ended up with 4 more.

So... Drumroll....
I love it!!! I used the "Steelers" polish on Saturday, but today I used "Treasured" (this is a discontinued polish) and "Pomegranate Ice". I absolutely looove the "treasured" more on the undie that I picked. I will be adding more pictures once I use all of them, but for now... This is what I have

"Pomegranate Ice" and "Treasured" are both on top of Purple Pizzazz Frost by NYC

School Spirit

Since my high school colors are the same as my favorite football team colors (go Steelers!!), I have decided to go with my college colors!! I went to Duquesne Univeristy in Pittsburgh and our colors and logo (to the best of my ability) have been represented.



Colors used are as follows NYC- Skin Tight Denim Creme Color Club- White Mark Wins- Redder NYC- Starry Silver Glitter TC is Fresh Paint

Target pick ups

Image
Some quick picks from Target. I'm going to try this quick dry and see how it works out. I need something good because I usually have just enough time to do my nails and never enough time to let them dry. Also, I will be reporting on the nail grow as well later!!

Steeler Time!!!!!

Image
Here's my weekly homage to my Steeler team!! On the bottom alternating is Black Lace Creme by NYC and Sunny Side by Sally Hansen. Topped with my Steeler Pride franken polish and Pot O' Gold by Sally Hansen. I added the extra Sally Hansen only on the black for a little extra sparkle!! Let's go Steelers!!!!!

My first franken polish!! Ehh

Image
So I ordered a franken polish set from Franken Polish Supply Shop at www.etsy.com/shop/FrankenPolishSupply.com. The set is great and is under $40!! It came with 10 suspension bases , 8 bags of glitter and 20 stainless steel mixing balls. I am about to do my Steelers mani and decided to make a Pittsburgh Pride Polish. I think it tuner out great! The only tweak I would make is to include a little mini funnel to make pouring the glitter easier. The homemade funnel did not work as well as I hoped. Overall... Awesome!!

French Aunt Dotty

Image
So today I decided to go dotty with some neons for one last push for summer. I usually don't like working with Funky Fingers because it stains and is hard to do a nice clean up.... But they have nice neons and they are cheap!!


Brilliant Sur- Sally Hansen
Pop Artist- Funky Fingers
Top coat- Fresh Paint
