China Glaze Nail Wheel

|
By cristalena56 · March 1, 2012

I decided to get some nail wheels off ebay. I am getting quite collection and i keep thinking im buying the same colors or similar colors to what i already have. Now I can see what the colors actually look like and also will come in handy when picking out a color to wear. I bought 3 sets of 5 nail wheels from ebay for $6 and change. I got a total of 15 nail wheels and each has 18 nails to swatch(270 nails total). I've swatched all my polishes except my color club which i will do tomorrow. First up is my China Glazes. I had just enough to fill up 1 wheel.

1. Polar  Ice over Liquid Leather

2. Some Like It Haute (Eye Candy Collection)

3. Cross Iron 360 (Haunting - Halloween 2011)

4. Shocking Pink

5. Hyper Haute (Tronica)

6. Flying Dragon (Ink)

7. Senorita Bonita (Island Escape)

8. Virtual Violet (Tronica)

9. Techno Teal(Tronica)

10. Sexy in the City (Sexy Sport)

11. For Audrey

12. Emerald Fitzgerald (Vintage Vixen)

13. Paper Chasing (Kicks)

14. Peace on Earth ('Tis the Season to Be Naughty and Nice '10)

15. It's Alive (Haunting - Halloween 2011)

16. Passion (Romantique)

17. Liquid Leather

18. Polar Ice (Glitters and Cremes)

The only china glaze i didnt swatch was Ghoulish Glow. My 3 crackle ones are on my crackle nail wheel. If you see any you would like me to swatch on my fingers and show you the bottle let me know in the comments.

Mardi Gras Manicure

|
By cristalena56 · February 9, 2012

Going to a Mardi Gras themed bridal shower on saturday. I wanted to repaint my nails today and one of my new polishes from my secret cupid seemed like a perfect MG purple. The name Flying Dragon, seemed to go along with the theme as well. Im not the greatest at nail art but i tried lol This wasnt that hard to do.

Colors Used:

*Wet n Wild Sagreena the Teenage Witch

*Color Club Sugar Plum Yum(scented!!)

*Color Club Gingerbread

*China Glaze Neon Flying Dragon

*Migi Nail Art Manicure Pen
in Black and Blue(Not Pictured)

*Seche Vite Top Coat(Not Pictured)

*First I applied a base coat(Beauty Secrets from Sally's)

*Next I put nail guide stickers on the middle of each nail going diagonally.

*Then I painted one side with Sagreena and the other with Flying Dragon.

*I took the nail guide off to see which color i needed to add more. Then i painted in the bare spot.

*Im impatient with drying so i added one thin coat of Seche Vite.

*Next I applied Gingerbread to the tips of my fingers.

*I then went over it with Sugar Plum, Yum.

*I found it didnt cover all the green and purple underneath so i applied Gingerbread yet again to be more opaque.

*Next I drew a line with the black migi nail art pen under the glitter. (drawing with my left hand wasnt the greatest, sorry :()

*Applied Seche Vite so lines wouldnt smear(though i accidentally smeared my thumb and middle finger :/)

*Next I drew a little mask on my thumb with the Migi Nail Art Pens in Black, Blue, and Yellow

*applied seche vite

I have a hurt finger :( keep stabbing it at work when reaching in my bucket for a pin to hard tag clothes.

I took a better pic of Color Club Gingerbread so you can see all the sparkly goodness.



Secret Cupid Nail Polish Exchange

|
By cristalena56 · February 8, 2012

So ive been part of the purse forum(aka tpf) for a few years now. But there are more categories the just different brands of handbags. We talk about not only bags, but fashion, make up, nails, celebrities, movies, sports, babies, tv shows, relationships, food, everyday life, finances, work, news, youtube videos, etc.... One of the places i have made a home at is The Nail Care in the Beauty Bar section. For about a year now we have been doing exchanges for VDay, Easter, Summer, and Christmas/New Years.  We receive a name of our body, along with a wish list, likes, and dislikes. Everyone gets at least 4 polishes but some people dont know how to count and give more ;) We also include candy, nail files, samples, etc... Theres no price limit so all nail care regular members from all different walks of life can participate. Its just a fun way to bring joy to someone else's life with these little nail polish gifts. We are happy with whatever we get. Majority of us join to give. There is our second annual Secret Cupid Exchange. I happened to receive my gift in the mail yesterday. I was so excited to come home to this package waitin after a long day at work. My hubby (aka Louie) tried to claim my package as his own lol

It was decorated with all kinds of cute valentine's day stickers.

I wonder whats underneath :D

Let the bubble wrap popping begin ;) Oh wait its pretty and i can reuse it. :)

Look at all these goodies for me :D Have to keep hubby's hands away from my treats. Ok, ok i'll share... maybe.. ;)

Cute little mail box held my polishes. I spotted these at Target, and almost bought one for my buddy.

Oo i wonder what pretties await inside!!

Hello Kitty Polish in Blueberry!! This polish has been on my wishlist for awhile, and I had totally forgotten about it til i opened this. You can find them being sold at Sephora here.

Periwinkle Blue Pastel

a rainbow glitter :) you can never have too many of these, or at least i can't :)

I wonder what pretty i get to open next :)

China Glaze For Audrey - Tiffany's Blue

I pick this polish up everytime i goto sally's but i never get it. Now when i wear this i can wear my tiffany bracelet. I think this color will go good with my new coach bag i bought 2 weeks ago.

Coach Poppy Patent Spotlight in Spearmint style #13835

China Glaze - Flying Dragon(Neon)

Deep purple with blue and red glitter. Cant wait to try this!!

Essie - Smokin' Hot

purple/gray creme

All Together and looking mighty pretty. :) Can't wait to try all these. Its time for a new color.. So which one to use first. hmmm..

No gift is complete without the card.

Thanks Coronita for all my pretty polishes!!! It made my day opening up my package last night!! :)
