When The Ball Drops!!

This is the last post of 2011! Can you believe it? This year has been a memorable one! Especially this past week. Three people I know died. It's been a tough week but I am glad they are no longer suffering.

I feel like year, my 28th year, will be a fantastic one. I can say that with amazing confidence. I wish you all a Happy New Year and 2012!! I hope this year is a great one for each and every one of you!!!

I am loving my manicure for New Years!!!
Base color: Wet N Wild Black Creme
Butter London Topcoat 
Silver Metal balls from Sally's


My inspiration for this was Lady Gaga.
I am loving it!!
I thought it would have been a lot more difficult to do but it's hard from hard!


I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year.

Until 2012!!!!

Double, double toil and trouble

Fire burn and cauldron bubble. Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog, Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting
Lizard's leg and owlet's wing.
For a charm of powerful trouble, like a hell-broth boil and bubble.


Can you guess what I have for you today? Scroll down for the magic (oooh, ahhh)!


Life Preserver came out with the Anchors Away collection.
It's a brightened, rusted orange cream.
I used Life Preserver as the base for...
DUN DUN DUN
Lynnderella Cauldron Drippings.
LOOK AT HOW GORGEOUS THIS POLISH IS!
It's such so cheery! Each time I look at it, I have to smile!
Cauldron Drippings has different size and shape glitters.
Orange, yellow, green, red, blue.. You name it, it's in there!
This is so perfect!
Lynnderella, I love you!!!! 

Until next time!!

I see you!!!

Hello my darlings!
I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas. Mine was amazing. I couldn't be happier. I am so blessed to have an amazing family and friends.
My boyfriend got me the most amazing gifts ever. I screamed and cried when I opened up my gift.
HE GOT ME MUPPETS!!!
They are called Muppet Whatnots and are from the same company that does Jim Hensons' Muppets.
I have different eyes, noses, hair, glasses. 
He put so much thought in these gifts. 
He put them in vintage carrying cases.
If you look closely at the picture, you can see my mascara running. 
These mean the world to me.

Onto my nails of today!
Base color: American Apparel Manila
White, Black, Red, Purple, Robin's Egg Acrylic paint 
I was inspired by a dress I saw but I honestly cannot remember who made it.
Sorry!!!
This was super simple to do.
And can I just say how much I am loving this light box!?
It's amazing!!!!!

Until tomorrow my lovelies!!!!

Bottle Spam: Lynnderella 2.0

As promised, I have the last 6 bottles of my Lynnderella stash.
I hope all of you still have your bibs from the previous post.
Lynnderella has easily made it into my top 4 polish brands.

I have to clean my lens. I am pretty sure there is a damn smudge on it.
My dog likes to lick my lenses. Why? I have no idea!!!

LOOK AT HOW GORGEOUS!!!!
LYNNDERELLA WHY ARE YOU SO AMAZING?


I don't know how she does it! But with each polish I am more amazed!!
I can't believe it's Christmas Eve!!!

Until later my lovelies!!

Bottle Spam: Lynnderella

Hi my dear readers! I hope everyone has been well. I have so busy I can't stand it!!!
I've been running around doing errands with my mother on an average of 12 hours a day (!!!!!!!!!!!!!). And when I wasn't running around the city doing errands, I had some down time playing video games..I'm a very very very huge gamer.
Current game I have been playing is Batman Arkham City..And may I add that it is AMAZING!!

Anywho, I was taking a more in depth inventory of my polishes as decided that at least once a week, I will be posting bottle spam of a specific brand!

Today's bottle spam includes Lynnderella!!
*hands out bibs* It's to catch the drool!

Funny Money collection
Early Halloween
Look at how gorgeous One Nutty Fruitcake is!! Unf!

I have 6 polishes missing because my comp decided to eat it!
But I will be adding those 6 to this post!
I hope you enjoy.
Lynnderella polishes are now available at shop.llarowe.com

Frosty!!!

Ok so I am not one for posting twice in a day usually. I did a quick manicure and decided to play around with the light box Chris did for me.
So I wanted to share the results.
How cute are my snowmen?
I really like the light box. I just have to get some better lighting.
During the winter, my hands get really really bad in terms of dryness.

What do you think about the light box?
Better, Worse, same?

De Do De

The day after my birthday, my boyfriend took me to A John Waters Christmas. John Waters is one of my favorite people in the world. He did Cry Baby, Hairspray, Pecker and Pink Flamingos to name a few. He's been my personal hero since I was around 8 years old. That was when I first time I saw Hairspray.

So as a honor to him, I did Pink Flamingo themed nails.
Hahah I think this is all self explanatory. 
I wanted to show John Waters my manicure since he was doing a signing afterwards.
But due to the amount of people, I may have had an anxiety attack haha
There is always P-Town next summer.

This is my favorite combo!
For underwear, I used American Apparel African Violet
Then topped it off with two coats of Lynnderella's Love Potion No.99
Lynnderella has easily made it into my top 3 brands of nail polish I love. 
There are no words to describe how gorgeous this polish is.
Love Potion No.99 is Purple, violet and fuchsia hexagons and squares in a cool violet base. Multiple sizes and violet holographic micro glitter.
You need this.. It's simple.. You need it!

I came home and was pleasantly surprised that my boyfriend did a light box for me!
This is the first picture using it and I must say that I am loving it. 

I hope everyone is doing well! 
Time for me to go off and cook and get ready our party tonight.
Until tomorrow!!

Nom Nom Nom

Well hello my dears! I hope everyone is doing great!

Today I have a rather odd Christmas manicure for you.. I am laughing as I type this because it is kind of ridiculous. I don't know what made think of doing this. All I can say is that I am grateful for my very random though process.
Base color: Wet n Wild Black Creme
Acrylic paint for the rest.

Do you see how silly it is? I can't stop laughing. It's so silly! I love it! The tree is a bit sloppy because my blood sugars dropped drastically.

I hope you all enjoyed my manicure today. I know I did!!!

Until tomorrow my lovelies!

Gonna Find Out Who's Naughty And Nice

Hello my lovely readers, I hope everyone is well. Today's been rainy and dreary and I love it. This type of weather makes me want to stay in bed, which I plan on doing.

Today is the 7th day of Christmas and I bring to you Santa coats!
Base color: OPI Alpine Snow (2 coats)
Red and black acrylic paint
Buckle: China Glaze Cheers To You
Of course my Santa is fabulous so I added Lynnderella Ruby Red Ruby to his coat.
Bling bling bling.

Over the weekend, my boyfriend came across a photo of mt first attempt at nail art.
He told me that I have come a long way! 
I agree wholeheartedly! 
I still have a lot to learn though.
I also got my first request today for nail art!!!

Until tomorrow my lovelies!!

Deck The Halls with Boughs of Holly

Fa la la la la la la la la

Today is the 6th day of Christmas and I bring you Boughs of Holly!!! I'm going to be honest with you, my dear readers. When I first started this mani, I was sure it was going to be a fail. I prepped myself for a horrid outcome. And may I add, that I totally rocked it and didn't fail!

This is another of my pushpin manicures. I just can't seem to find a brush thin enough for my liking.

Base color: Essie Ballet Slippers (3 coats)
Black, white, red, green acrylic paint.


I am so happy with the way these came out!

Until tomorrow my lovelies!

They all shouted out with glee!

Today is the 5th day of my Christmas themed manis. I'm getting excited as each day passes. Honestly, I can't believe it's already December 5th. The past 7 months have flown by!

I have for you, those pesky little reindeer that didn't let Rudolph join in any reindeer games.
Base color: Sally Hansen Big Money
Brown, black, white acrylic paint
Rudolph's nose: Lynnderella Ruby Red Ruby

This was a lot of fun to do.
I had a smile on my face the entire time I was doing my nails!!!

The index reindeer had an eye accident as you can see. 
It's small. He was playing with a BB Gun and shot his eye out!

Until tomorrow my lovelies!!

Snowflakes are kisses sent from heaven

On the 4th day of Christmas, my true love did on me
Special looking snowflakes..

I have a feeling that my readers might get tired of me starting the posts that way haha.
I hope everyone is doing well! Currently, I am watching The Muppets Christmas Carol.. If you have not seen it... well, what are you waiting for!? GO!
I must say, that my passion for nail art has returned. I have almost every day planned so far! I am not letting my health bring me down. A positive view is what I promise to have.

Base color: Wet n Wild Black Creme
Layered with Deborah Lippmann Stairway to Heaven
White acrylic paint for the snowflakes topped with China Glaze White Cap
I tried to make each one different because no two are the same!

I wish I could capture how much it glitters. It looks so awesome. It reminds me of that first snowfall.
The snow where no one has stepped, no cars have dirtied. 
We got our first snowfall on Halloween but it melted within a Boston.
I am hoping to have a white Christmas.
What do you like about Christmas/Winter?
What do you think of this manicure?
I love hearing your opinions!

Until tomorrow my lovelies!!!

On the 2nd and 3rd day of Christmas...

On the 2nd day of Christmas art, my true love did to me...
Special looking penguins!
Base color: MAC Seriously Hip
White and Black acrylic paint
China Glaze Peachy Keen 
I dunno what I would have done to make them look better. 
They are extremely special looking.
Eep! Even though are you special looking, my dear penguins, mama still loves you to death!

On the 3rd day of Christmas nail art, my true love did to me...
CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!!
Base Color: OPI Alpine Snow
Lynnderella Ribbon Candy
Black, blue, green, red, yellow acrylic paint

I like this mani alot. The Lynnderella glitter made it look like a party on my nails!
I am loving December for nail art. 
November was a rather dull month for me. 
I was diagnosed with certain things and it took it's toll on me.
But this month brings all new things.
My birthday, John Waters show, Christmas, snow, sledding!
What more can a girl ask for?

I also want to thank all of my followers.
I will be having a giveaway when I reach 200!

Until tomorrow!

Thumpetty thump thump

Today is December 1st! Today also marks the first of a month long of Christmas manicures!
Here in Boston, doesn't really feel like December. We've been having very warm weather. It's so unusual.
My birthday is December 9 and every year there has been a snow storm on my birthday. We'll see what happens.

Earlier today, I was playing Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4. The snowmen in Hogsmeade are so adorable so I decided to do a mani based on them.
As a base I used OPI How's it Snowin'? which is a Ulta holiday exclusive.
I used black, white and purple acrylic paint to freehand the snowmen
I want to make this into a feltie!
I now have a new project to keep me busy!!

Extreme close up.. WHOAAAAA 
/end Wayne's World scene
They are they cutest little things in the world!!

I have a great idea for what I am going to do tomorrow!
Muahaha

Until tomorrow my lovelies!

Tiara vs. Showgirl! Ding Ding Ding

Sorry for being MIA but I have reached a rough patch in regards to my health which left with very little motivation to do anything in my life. I still did my paint each day but did not blog about it. Since my health had me down, I didn't keep up with the 30 days of untireds. I dislike not finishing things!

Onto more important business....NAILS!!

China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara is a Sterling silver with blue and teal glitter.
The index finger is one coat of Lorelei's Tiara.
The middle finger is two coats of Lorelei's Tiara.
The ring is three coats of Lorelei's Tiara.
As you can see, the blue/teal glitter spreads nicely!
It's a great color combination! I love this glitter!
This is a comparison photo.
Index and Ring fingers are Sally Hansen Showgirl Chic.
Middle and Pinky fingers are China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara...
Can you tell the difference? 
Nope either can I.

This season has produced A LOT of glitter dupes.
If you have one, you do not need the other.
The only teeny tiny difference is that the Lorelei's Tiara produces more blue/teal glitter than Showgirl Chic.

Until tomorrow my lovelies!

I love RuPaul.. Love is an understatement. Obsessed? Yeah, that's more like it.
Today is day 21 of the 30 Days of Untrieds.

For this installment, I bring to you Concrete Catwalk by China Glaze.
Concrete Catwalk is a dark gray cream that was opaque in two coats.
This is a MUST HAVE.
So absolutely gorgeous!!
I can't stop staring at it!
You need this! Really you do 

Are you ready for my failed nail art?
I did this at 3 am in the morning and while on my pain meds.
It looked good to me. But at the same time, I am sure everything does at that time!
What the hell are those?!
Well they are supposed to be bullets!
If you tilt your head they kind of look like bullets.
Add this to the ever growing list of things I want to redo

It's a love hate relationship

Hello my lacquered lovers!
Sorry I've been MIA but I have been really sick recently and have been undergoing quite a few tests. By the time I get home, I'm exhausted and still feeling the effects from the sedation.
I dislike not posting regularly but I am going to try my hardest to post each day.

Today is day 19 of the 30 days of untrieds. For day 19, I bring to you My Sleigh's In The Shop by Nicole by OPI.

My Sleigh's In The Shop is a fuchsia, purple and gold microglitter.
The gold microglitter adds depth to the polish and manages to bring it to life.
I love NOPI and OPI glitters!
They do them so well.
Left hand!
I was influenced by friend's tattoos. He has love and hate inked on his knuckles.
I'm obsessed with font like this!
Right hand!
The right hand was hard to do. The letters are not the same height.
But I must say that I did a great job using my non-dominant hand!

OPI Christmas Polishes at Ulta

Today I was nail shopping and while at Ulta, I came across some polishes that I wasn't familiar with.
There are three OPI Christmas polishes there. How's It Snowin'? Speak For Your-Elf, and A Sparkle Yule Love.
This is also my Day 16 of Untrieds. I fell behind because I was in Canada with no internet at all. But I will now resume to posting regularly now.

This is How's It Snowin'?
The pointer finger has 1 coat.
The middle finger has 2 coats.
The ring finger has 3 coats.
I love this polish (I think I say that a lot).
It starts off rather sheer but is very buildable. 
It's gray and silver glitter. (Sorry I am horrible at describing things)

Next up is A Sparkle Yule Love.
The pointer finger has 1 coat.
The middle finger has 2 coats.
The ring finger has 3 coats.
This looks exactly like Excuse Moi? from The Muppets collection.
I like be doing a comparison post later on in the week.
 It's a pink/reddish base with teal, green, silver, gold, pink and orange glitter.

Last but not least is Speak for Your-Elf
The pointer has 1 coat. 
The middle has 2 coats.
The ring has 3 coats.
This is a red based with red glitter.
We've seen these before.

Why do my nails look dirty????
It's a small collection and I am thinking it's exclusively for Ulta.
