holy shit!


Nfu-Oh #52
It's more blue IRL. This is 3 coats... 3 coats of perfection. Although it could have used another coat. But anyways... this is so SEXY. In the sun, it's reminiscent of RBL Scrangie. 52 is beautiful on it's own, but I think it would look amazing layered over a rich navy blue.

China Glaze Twenty-Four K with plate m57
Yes, it's a little tacky.. but I like it. :) I used 3 coats of TFK.

Thanks for looking!


i miss you...

Another good bye. And this time for about 7 months.


I wore this when we had a taco night...

Love Nectar

China Glaze Spontaneous
3 coats. Not a big fan of this color.

Pure Ice Strapless
4 coats. I love, love, love this color. And this is coming from someone who's not a big fan of glitters. I've come to the conclusion that blue nail polishes are my favorite shade.

Thanks for looking!


Dating A Marine

Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been trying to spend as much time as I can with Christian.

We went out for dinner last night, to some fancy place in downtown San Jose called Arcadia. It was GOOD. I sadly did not get any photos of the food, but I have ones from before we left...

My makeup was very simple, I did not get any close ups but it was...
Pinch O' Peach on cheeks
Vanilla pigment as cheekbone highlight

Woodwinked as a wash
Espresso in the crease
Vanilla pigment as highlight
Solar White in inner corner

Angel l/s with patisserie l/s on top

And my nails!

OPI Dating A Royal
I renamed this one Dating A Marine, hence the title, because it matches his uniform pants so well. :) This is 3 coats. Nice formula. It was on my toes as well, if you can see in the full length body shot...

Thanks for looking!


supposedly i'm going to be an object of envy now

...Because my boyfriend is a United States Marine!

Don't mind me. Hahaha I was overwhelmed.

My family.

I just thought me in the background was hilarious :)

And here's the special nails!

Orly White Tip, OPI Big Apple Red, W&W Black Creme
I thought he was going to wear his dress blues, so I did them to match that.. but he didn't. :(

This manicure was taken from Wan. It took me forever and a fucking half to do them... but it was fun. :)

Thanks for looking! Have a GREAT day, I know I will! :)



Tomorrow, in ONE day, I get to see Christian! Ahhhh I'm so excited. It was so hard to sleep at night. Haha.

In a couple of hours I'm leaving for San Diego, where he's graduating. So I wanted to do a quick post before I leave.

(excuse my swollen cuticle.. it's not infected, so I don't know why it looks that way..)

China Glaze Emerald Sparkle (again)
I don't know why, but I was craving to put this polish on even though I have so many untrieds. This time I used 3 coats and it looked great. I love this color!

OPI Dulce De Leche
One of my favorite polishes. Almost half the bottle is gone! Fun fact: this was my first OPI. I think it looks great with my skin tone. This is 2 coats.

Well, thanks for looking. I have a very special Marine themed manicure on right now.. you'll have to wait a couple of days to see it though! Have a great day :)


i'm not dead

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. A 'black wave' hit me. I might not have been dead, but I sure was wishing I was.


Here's a look I did the other day.

Pinch 'O Peach blush

UD Midnight Cowboy l/l
Viva Glam I

I dyed my hair last week. I hate it. :(

Yesterday's NOTD.

OPI Russian Navy suede
I LOVEEEE this np. I thought it was going to make my hands look disgusting, but it didn't! This is 2 coats. I found the formula easy to work with... I don't know what all this talk is about the suede's horrible formula. Both of the suedes that I own are easy to apply. I love how they look, too!

Today's NOTD.

China Glaze Rainbow
This is 3 coats. I bought this bcause at Sally's they had a deal where if you buy Seche Vite you get a free ChG polish. I could NOT pass that up. I had a hard time deciding between this and Frostbite... I decided on Rainbow because it looked slightly similar to ChG Afterglow (which I majorly lemmed after Scrangie's post) but they're not that similar. I wish I bought Frostbite. Sigh.

Thanks for looking!


couple of notds

China Glaze OMG (click to enlarge!)
THIS POLISH IS FUCKING AMAZING. Ahhh. One of my favorites. It's way more holographic than my other holos from ChG. This is 3 coats.

China Glaze Emerald Sparkle
Very flattering. This is 2 coats, but it needed 3.

Essie Meet Balls
What an odd color. It's the gold shimmer that made me buy it.. I'm so partial to gold shimmer in nail polish. And I love the name! This is 3 coats.

Thanks for looking!

I hope everyone enjoyed their New Year's!
