Anchors Away

Happy Tuesday Dolls:) I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!!! I know I did!!! And I'm am loving this wonderful spring weather, cause I know before long the HOTT days of summer will assault us and be unrelenting:( One thing I am not happy about is what all these pregnancy hormones are doing to my nails... Oh sure my skin is glowing and my hair is thick and cooperating on a daily basis, but my nails have become brittle and peeling:( which is why I am sporting shorties!!! Anyway onto today's Mani, Anchors Away!!!!

The Blue base here is Blueberry by Barry M Gelly, one of my favorite blues ever!!!! The White is Purity by Zoya and the Hot Pink is Ali by Zoya!!! I created the dots with a small dotting tool and the stripes and anchor is free hand:)

I absolutely love the way this mani turned out!!!! So much so that I replicated it on my toes:) Don't worry I'm not gonna show you those, although I like my feet I am in MAJOR need of a pedicure!!!! Have a Fabulous Week!!!!

Springtime Holos

Wow can you believe it is already April!!!! and with it brought with it showers and thunderstorms and POLLEN!!! I have had the worst allergies this year, but that probably has something to do with the fact that I really can't take anything:(  But I can show you dolls some fantastic polishes!!!! Jess @ Too Cute-icle has so out done herself with this new spring Holo Collection!!!!  All swatches are 3 thin coats with a coat of SV.

This is Too Cuteicle's charity polish called The Golden's Rule, a gorgeous gold holo!!!! $2 from each bottle sold is going to HelpingStrays.org, a local no-kill animal shelter in her area. (this beauty is only available in full size).

 Next up is Basket Grass.  This beauty is a gorgeous minty green holo, totally makes me think about that green plastic grass that always came in your easter basket as a kid and not just because of the name:)

 Enchanted Lagoon is up next. This polish is just stunning!!!! This blue/green holo makes me long to go back to the caribbean and lounge in in my own personal Lagoon:)

 Bunny Ears is a cute light pink holo gem!!! This polish has a rosy tone that is really similar to my skin tone, and makes it blend in instead of stand out. I think I just need a tan:)

 Last up is Midnight Moon. This blue GLOWS in direct sunlight!!! It is slightly darker and almost smokey looking in indirect light. But I just couldn't resist showing off this glow!!!

These beauties are available for PRE-ORDER now through Midnight Tonight CST. Invoices must be paid by 4/10/2014, and will ship out the 11th or 12th for delivery by Easter. The pre-order doc can be found here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1FipyqjmHdzeGCsY3Vwx_sk_ovRruBVKWt2uvOyZcxB0/viewform.

So what do you think of this collection:) I think it is fabulous!!!!

Awaken to Spring

Well it FINALLY feels like spring here!!!! Flowers are staring to bloom and the grass is starting to grow and the POLLEN is wreaking HAVOC on my allergies:( And I am Officially half way through my pregnancy:) So with all of this new life blooming why not add some fresh spring colors to your tips:) And the Perfect collection to start with is Zoya Awaken:) 

Some of the products in this post were sent to me for review. I was not paid for my review of this product and all opinions are my own

First up is Cole, a gorgeous peach/orange cream:) This polish makes me daydream about Orange Dreamsicles (pregnancy talking). This polish is not a 1 coater, like most light colored creams it took 3 coats to get full coverage followed with a coat of SV:) 

 Dot is the most perfect Baby Pink ever Bottled!!!! This polish is a 3 coater as well, but really just look at this pink perfection!!! I know what color I will be wearing when the baby comes!!!!

Rebel is up next:) This is a sky blue metallic shimmer polish that makes me wish for summer blue skies by the pool!!!! I used 2 coats here and now looking at the pics I think I should have gone for 3:( as I can still see a little bit of nail line...

Hudson is my favorite of this whole collection!!!! This purple shimmer polish just POPS with my skin tone!!!! It is soft and feminine with just a little bit of Sass:) Only 2 coats were needed to get this look!!!!

Brooklyn is up next!!! This is the best muted gold polish I have seen!!! I say muted because it is not super yellow based, but it still has that Glam factor of a rich Gold:) Here is 2 coats!!!

 The last Gem of this collection is Dillion, a beautiful minty green shimmer.  As beautiful as this color is, it is my least fav of this collection.  I think the reason is because I am super partial to minty creme polishes and the shimmer just isn't doing it for me:( Only 2 coats were needed for this look!!!

So what do you think of this Spring perfect collection!!!! I think it is the perfect collection to add a little spring to my tips!!!  This Collection as a whole is available for $48 or for $9 per color:) My 2 must haves are Hudson and Dot:) What are yours??? and what do you think of my shorty nails??? I can't wait for these bad boys to grow out some!!!!

Magical Textures

Hi Dolls:) Sorry I have been away for so long:( If you follow me in Instagram (@pinkedpolish) or Facebook you can probably guess why!!! If not you probably should:) Well the Big NEWS is I'm PREGNANT!!!!! and It's a GIRL!!!! That's right I see a lot of little pink toe nails in my future!!!! So as you can imagine with the fatigue and morning sickness (that lasted all day) and the fact that polish / acetone smell made me nauseated, I wasn't doing much painting at all and I broke all of my nails!!! But I am well into my 2nd trimester and feeling much better:)

Well today I have some pretty fabulous Texture Polishes for you!!! The Magical Pixies By Zoya!!! First up is Cosmo, this is a gorgeous silvery iridescent Bombshell!!!! Super Gorgeous and Super long lasting!!!!

 Next up is Lux, a soft baby pink with that out of this world sparkle!!!! 

 Vega is the last in this collection!!!! This is the perfect baby blue!!! It's sooooo Sparkly:)

You can grab these Beauties at Zoya.com for $10 per. But I will give you fair warning, if you are not a fan of texture polishes already, you probably won't like these:( The Pixies are different than the regular ones as the texture is much greater, these beauties have larger holographic glitters mixed in (which makes for some pretty awesome sparkle). All of the swatches are 2 coats, no base or top coat:)
That is it for today Loves!!!

Gradient with a little Glitter:)

Sorry I have been away for soooo long:(  I have missed you dolls!!!! I swear the "Virus Monster" has been stalking my house since before Christmas!!! If it's not me (going on 2 weeks here of coughing and congestion) it's my hubby or my son (both huge babies when sick)!!! Then you add on disinfecting my house over and over again and I have been a busy little bee:)  and with all that cleaning you can probably guess the damage it did to my nails, I'm down to nubbins:(  So I have a mani I did right before new years to show you!!!

I did a basic gradient with White faded into Pink (Zoya Yana, the perfect bright pink) and well it was New Years and I need a little glam/rebel so I added a coat of Trelly's MISC Polish in Never Growing Up.  It was the perfect addition to this mani!!!!

So how are you ladies fairing during Cold and Flu Season, all I can say is I am sooo ready for warmer weather!!! But alas it will be a while, as of right now I am listening to sleet and ice bounce off the windows and the Snow is moving in... 8-14 inches is what we are expected to get and for Eastern NC that is just CRAZY!!!!
