Frosted Nails

Today I have a very easy look that I found on a new app I installed on my phone, it looks like frost and it's awesome!

I simply used China Glaze Frostbite, topped it with Essie Matte About You for the matte effect, then I used a thin brush to add the white, and while it was still wet I pressed loose white glitter on top to make it spark!
Mission accomplished :)

Rainbow Argyle + Step By Step Process

This is a look I have been wanting to make for a while, but I confess it looked so overwhelming that I have been postponing it for a while.

Well, today I decided to finally sit down and give it a go and I wasn't wrong about being overwhelming, but it was totally worth it cause I love how it turned out!

Here's the step by step process

Neon Yellow/Orange Crackle

This one is a pretty simple mani, so it doesn't need much introduction. This is what I call lazy nail art, cause it's not really nail art, but it's also not just plain nails.

I used Spoiled Inmate In Love over Kleancolor Neon Yellow

Gingerbread Man

Today I wanted to give it a try to stamping again. I now I'm terrible, but I have so many cute Christmas designs that I had to give it a go, and it didn't turned out too bad :)

This is what I did.. For the base I used Kleancolor Neon Yellow and topped it with China Glaze Angel Wings.

China Glaze Whirled Away and Turn Up Turquoise

Today I picked up a couple of China Glaze nail polishes from Sally's and couldn't wait to try them out.

They are not everything new, but they are to me and these 2 just go together beautifully! Don't you think?

Here they are, China Glaze Turn Up Turquoise from the Nervy Neons collection topped with also from China Glaze, Whirled Away from the Cirque Du Soleil Worlds Away Collection.

This last one is such an amazing topper, it can turn any boring and/or plain color into a fun nail art looking mani.

How do you like glitter? I'm really loving these big chunks! Until I have to remove them...

Christmas Mix 'N Match

Christmas is around the corner and my nails are feeling it too! There are so many designs out there that I had to go for a Mix 'N Match mani once again because I couldn't design :P

There are so many things I want to try for the holidays, so I better get to it!

The first step was to decide what I wanted to do with each nail, once I finally did, I went on and started my base coats

Go Ravens!

It's not really a secret at this point that I'm a crazy Baltimore Ravens fan, and even though it's a fairly new obsession, it's not less powerful!

This is not the first time I make a mani inspired by them and for them, you can find another one here. And I hope you don't hate it (or are a Steelers fan) cause it might become a weekly affair ;)

China Glaze Frostbite + Snowflakes

Today I found the prettiest blue I have ever seen, China Glaze Frostbite.

This, among some others I'll show you some other time, is my first China Glaze ever.

Up until this point, I've been trying to stick to cheap nail polishes, I have had no problems with some drugstores brands like Sinful Colors and Kleancolor has been a good partner from the start, but when you see all the other beauties you're missing out, it's hard to resist, and these were impossible to.

Thankfully they came in Holiday sets and were cheaper by the bottle, and so far totally worth it.

So here it is by itself

I took this picture in sunlight so you could see the metallic-ish effect it has and to show true color.
