NailNation 3000 Chakra

Wow oh WOW! That was my 1st thought when I opened my order from Maria.  The name even speaks for its self, Chakra.  I instantly thought....Rio De Janeiro and a tiny bikini! I love bright, sexy sassy colors, especially in the summer.  This is the smoothest application I have ever experienced with an Indie made cream polish.  Let's get to the pictures!!

My camera did not pick up the true beauty of the polish.  It is a spectacular color, I feel can be worn year round.  After putting this on, I wanted to get out and about to flash my hands around!

This fabulous polish, NailNation 3000 can be purchased from Maria on her fan Facebook page by clicking here.  You can also buy her polishes at Llarowe by clicking here.  Maria has many more fabulous polishes, especially Holographic ones.  My blog this week will showcase a few more of them.  Until then, may you days be filled with beautiful polish~

I am starting her out Young

Happy Tuesday to everyone.  Today's post is about my adorable niece Maddison, who is following in her Aunt's footsteps.  She LOVES all things make up.  I'm talking lipgloss, lipstick, eye shadows and nail polish! Over the Thanksgiving Holiday, she ask me to paint her nails and she wanted Water Marbling!! I said, how do you know what that is? She is only 5! She said she watches tutorials in the morning before she goes to school. Ummm, she's in Kindergarten! My sister said on the 1st day of school, she had a melt down. I said awe, she didn't want to be away from her mom. My sister said no, she had the melt down because they would not let her bring her purse that had her lip gloss in it! The teacher finally agreed to let her have it, as long as it stayed in her cubby.  I call her a DIT....A Diva in Training!  She's adorable, and smart too.  Here are a few pictures of little Miss Maddison.

We were unaware that after getting her nails painted, she went and put on lipstick!  Funny, that it actually matched the outfit she was wearing! That's all for today, until next time, may your days be filled with lots of beautiful polish.

Painting with a Twist

Hello and Happy Sunday!  Today's post is a bit different.  Last year a friend introduce me to a company called Painting With a Twist. With a confused look on my face, I said, Do tell.  It is the coolest thing ever! You pay a fee, they provide the canvas, the paint, the brushes and you bring the wine. They teach you step by step how to paint.  Yes, I said wine ( that's the twist) You can actually bring what ever you like to drink.  I signed up for a few classes and had a BLAST! I never thought I would be able to paint on a canvas and others be able to tell what is was.  After my 1st completed painting, I was hooked!

The above was my very 1st painting class and it was so much fun.  It is not as hard as it looks and the teacher gives step by step instructions and paints along with you.  This is the best stress reliever! Painting with a Twist is not in every state, but it is a franchise company and I would LOVE to open up my own store!

This was my next class.  I sent this one to my 2 beautiful granddaughters for them to hang in their playroom.  On this one, the instructor had to help me, it was a bit harder than the dress.  You can research Painting with a Twist at , click on "locations" and see if one is near you.  Until next time, may your day be filled with lots of beautiful polish. 

Oh, and HOORAY FOR MY NINER'S!!! Superbowl bound :)

Glitzology Meets Essie

Today I have part 2 of my Glitzology Beauty review. Essie Penny Talk meets Neapolitan. This combination is blinding with sparkle in the sun and is perfect for simple day time wear or to glitz up an evening outfit.   I used 1 coat of Neapolitan over 2 coats of Penny Talk, followed by Seche Vite and HK Girl top coat.

My camera did not capture the true sparkle in this combination.  The formula was so easy, not too thick and I did not have to fish.  I did use the "dabbing" method to place the polish where I wanted it.

You can purchase Glizology polish in her Etsy store here  Have a happy a polished filled Friday.  Until next time, may your day be filled with lots of beautiful polish!  Oh and GO NINER'S!!

Animal Print Stamping

Those who know me, know that I LOVE all things animal print.  I was so excited to discover that I had animal print stamping plates.  I purchased the MASH 2012 plates and when the arrived, I just put them away.  I have not had any luck with stamping and wanted to try again.  I am very pleased with how these turned out.  I used China Glaze Champagne Kisses, OPI Paris Couture for Sure and L'Oreal After Hours for the stamping.

I have to say my favorite print is the Giraffe on my ring finger.  Now that I have finally stamped with success, I will now do this more often.  The combinations are endless.  In addition to using Seche Vite, I also used HK Girl Top Coat.  Do you have a favorite stamping mani?

I got this Betsy Johnson key chain at our annual White Elephant Christmas exchange.  My family knew I would jump at this gift.  It's animal print, bling and Pink!! I am in love with this mani, what do you think?

That about wraps up this review. I used plates 40,41,42 and 49 of the MASH 2012 plates.  The stamping plates can be purchased here.  Thank you for stopping by.  Until tomorrow, may you days be filled with lots of beautiful polish.

xoxo Shea
