Watercolor Nails!

Hey ladies!
So as you all know I have been in a rut when it comes to designs for my nails, but last night I was on tumblr and I kept seeing different pictures of watercolor nails so I wanted to give it a shot!
The colors I used were: China Glaze - Snow, China Glaze - Flip Flop Fantasy, China Glaze - Sexy In The City & China Glaze - Flying Dragon.

I really like the way it turned out, especially for my first attempt. Watercolor nails are really easy to do, and they look so unique.

Revlon - Whimsical

Hey lovelies!
So a few days ago I came across Revlon - Whimsical, and I knew I had to buy it. When I got home I looked through swatches, I found out its a dupe for Deborah Lippmann - Up In The Air which made me even more excited to use it.
I decided to swatch it over China Glaze - Snow, and China Glaze - Bahamian Escape.. the base is so sheer so I wanted to show you how it looks over a blue and a white.

I only used 2 coats for this, but I think if I had done a third coat then maybe you could see the blue better over the white.. oh well, I still love this polish. The application was easy, I had no problem with the glitter in this color.
When I bought this I also picked up Revlon - Stunning, so look out for my post with it soon!

Also, I need to say how disappointed I am that I can't find the China Glaze - Electropop collection. I am DYING for it.. I want it so bad, and I have called everywhere and can't find it. Cosmoprof even told me that they haven't heard of it yet, and don't think it will be there for a few months. I am so sad about this, I can't wait much longer :(

Simple can be beautiful!

Hey ladies!
Today I have a nice, clean, simple mani for you! I decided to do a black tip manicure, I always just paint my nails, or do some sort of nail art.. so I wanted to change it up for you guys.
For this mani I used a base of Essie - Sugar Daddy, China Glaze - Liquid Leather, a black striping brush, and on my ring finger a thin line of L.A. Colors Art Deco - Silver (which I won from Drinkcitras giveaway!).

I couldn't find my camera after I did my nails, so I ended up using my iPhone (which I just got this week), I must say the pictures are so much better compared to my crappy blackberry... and I have become addicted to all the apps and especially instagram (as you can see lol).

I hope you're all having a wonderful week! xox
