My first franken!

I made my first franken! I have no idea what to name it, and I'm not exactly sure if it's even going to be pretty on but it's mine and I made it!  It's really not all that special just a purple and some glitter lol.  I'll be sure to make a post using it soon!

Tiny Nubbins...Again

I had a major nail break on my right hand last night :( I attempted to deal with having one hand grown out and one as tiny nubbins and I just couldn't do it... I felt ridiculous, so here I am.  Tiny nails again and awful cuticles.   *Sigh*

Aye! My cuticles... I apologize.
China Glaze Midtown Magic.  LOVE.  Metro Collection has been a huge hit for me.  Midtown Magic is a brown with amber and golden sparkles throughout it.  2 coats.  Gosh, could my cuticles get any worse?  I had an incident playing with my kitten, Trudie and her claw clipping a part of my cuticle off on my ring finger (its very obvious in pictures).  It also doesn't help its getting super cold in Chicago, and my hands aren't feeling it!

Westside Warrior

Westside Warrior.  I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this polish.  It's the perfect army green!  I'm planning on using it for a military inpsired manicure sometime in the future!
I never got a picture of it alone, but I got a little bored so I did a tape mani over it using CG It's Alive and CG Street Chic.   Eeek my cuticles are awful! Don't look at them! LOL!

Old Nail Art

Thought I'd share a picture of some of my first nail art from about 2 year ago!! Everyone went nuts over these nails my sophomore year! To be honest I don't think it's even that great, but the concept is very cute. 
I don't have any new pictures to share :(.  I paint my nails every single day, but because the sun is going down sooner I don't the time with wrestling to take good enough pictures! Speaking of wrestling, the other day I was asked what sports don't I manage and in the same breath told my nails always look beautiful and how I manage to change my polish so often. A quick dry topcoat really does change your life! :)

Offical Halloween Mani

Even though I'm pretty sure I promised myself to do a bunch of really cool Halloween inspired nails, they never happened.  So here are my nails for Halloween!

Confetti Wedding White as my base then applied ghoulish glow over base, acrylic paint for the stripes and HardCandy Pretty in Punk for the eyes.  Ghoulish  Especially compared to my Pure Ice GITD, it doesn't ever want to glow for more than 30 seconds, I'm so disappointed :(  I'm not a huge fan of this mani, but I just took what I could do in 10 minutes. 

CG Trendsetter.  I LOVE this color! Ugly, pukey, mustardy greens have almost looked elegant with my fair skin and this is probably one of my favorite from the Metro Collection. 

CG Brownstone, very fall, very brownish red.
