This ladies and gents was my VERY FIRST China Glaze I ever bought. Not this bottle but this color. Isn't it crazy that I can remember something like that but can't remember what I ate yesterday? Anyway, I loved this color. This was my first foray into my "love affair" with ChG. I remember drooling over how well this polish applied, I was super hooked after just one use. I couldn't wait to get back to Beauty Co (our local store chain that was like Sally's) and buy some more. This is one of the few bottles of nail polish that I used the whole bottle of - no joke.

This color has since been discontinued and I have only been able to find it on Ebay. I tried to order this once before only to get a note from the ebay store saying they couldn't find it. I came across it the other day and scooped this bad boy up (and a back up bottle too I might add).

I got this from a really great store that I wanted to share with you all. I was super impressed with not only the quickness in response of my order, but also in how quickly I got my order. From the day I ordered it to the time I had it in my hands was like 3 days! Both bottles came individually wrapped in bubble wrap and encased in a sturdy card board box. I got really great customer service too, which is why I wanted to share this place with you all. The store is PRETTY THINGS FOR YOU AND ME. You guys know how much I appreciate great customer service and I think I was really treated well using this store. I especially like how quickly I got my goodies too. The price wasn't too bad either. I saw that they sell lots of other discontinued and hard to find polishes also, so if you are looking for any of those you might see what they have to offer.

Anyway I always try to spread the word on great CS and wanted to give this store a little shout out!

This is my nails of the day. I used Eyeko Punk Polish for neon nails and then topped it off with Wet N Wild Prancer. I really like this. It almost looks like a Valentine's Day mani.

When I get home I'm going to put China Glaze's Party Hearty over this!! I think it will look AWESOME!


These was my mani over the Christmas holiday. I know pretty boring. I hadn't intended on it being my full mani, I was going to top it with a fun glitter top coat but things were busy so it didn't happen. Oh well - that's life! :)


Well I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Mine was good. I got lots of new nail polish I can't wait to try out - that Santa Claus sure does know my taste! It's almost as if I picked it out all by myself and stuck it in my own stocking. . . .

The puppies are doing good. No signs of eyes opening yet but they sure are getting big! Especially the little white female. She is like doubled in size and is double the size of the little boy.

Can you see the size difference in the two??

I have named her "FAT MEATIES". Fat meaties is what I usually call the back sides of doggy legs, the really squishy part of their upper thigh - well she is just a big ball of squishy fat meat so that's what I'm calling her! lol - I don't have normal names for my animals...

He was sort of hidden this morning so I couldn't get a really good picture of him. I haven't come up with a name for him yet, I'm still working on it.

How was everyone's Christmas? Anyone get any cool nail polish related goods that they want to share with us? Would love to hear about them in the comments section :)

I had a blast doing Christmas nails but I think I'm pretty much done for the year. I will be attending a nail workshop in January and one in February. I can't wait to see how I can improve my skills. It has been such a great year and I am so thankful for all of the clients that made it so amazing! I can't wait to see what 2011 brings :)


OMG - imagine my surprise today when I rec'd a package from Godiva chocolates! I thought this must be a mistake, I couldn't think of anyone that would be sending me a box a chocolates. But as I opened up the package I found a little envelope with a note from none other than ZOYA!!

How awesome was that? This was certainly something that Zoya didn't have to do at all, especially for a little ol' blogger like myself, but it sure did give me a great feeling. It is so nice to be recognized as an important part of Zoya! I know I don't work FOR Zoya but I have worked with Zoya through my blog for product reviews, which really is nice enough. So THANK YOU ZOYA, this was really nice, generous and thoughtful.

*I wanted to post this to share with you all what a wonderful company Zoya is and what great customer service they have!


I love P2 polishes! I just love the gel formula, it is really easy to control. This is grey, taupe, sandy color. I really liked it quite a bit. You can see the sandy quality in the extreme closeup picture below.


I love watching movies!!

Especially comedy, fantasy movies!!

War related and bloody, killing movies are a big no no for me(^^;

So I went to watch this movie called


And it was great☆

I shouldn't tell the story, but I loved the main character so much!

He is super cute!!

Anyway, I loved the movie so much,

I decided to make MEGAMIND nails.

It started like this...

And then I added Characters from the movie using acrylics.

A baby MEGAMIND and a big MEGAMIND☆

I added blue shiny holograms as well.

The little fish-like character MINION is there too!

Okay, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas break

and a fantastic new year!!

Thank you for visiting my blog this year,

and I'll see you more regulary next year!!

Thank you~!!!
