If you haven't jumped on the jewelry-inside-a-candle bandwagon yet, I've got one to show you today!

Twinsie Tuesday - Polish Received in a Swap


My feature polish for today's theme is OPI Hey Baby, which I paired with Viking in a Vinter Vonderland in a stripey water marble mani.

Virtuous Polish - Women of Valor Collection - Live Swatches

I've always kicked myself for not getting the Maybelline Bleached Neons, so when I discovered this collection of neon-pastel hybrids from Virtuous Polish, I snagged them all!

Quick & Easy Cuticle Cleanup with Latex Paint

I finally jumped on the bandwagon and bought some latex paint to use for cuticle cleanup! Basically, you paint it on around the edges of your nail, and can peel it and any mess off in one piece.

Barielle Gentle Breeze Collection - Spring 2015

Today I have Barielle's Spring 2015 Gentle Breeze collection to share with you!

There are five polishes in this collection: two cremes, one sheer creme, and two semi-frost finish polishes. The cremes are Heaven Sent and Pink Parasol, the sheer polish is Champagne Bubbles, and the frosty shimmers are By the Sea and Gray Sky.

Rather than showing pictures of the polishes, I have a live swatch video of all of them.

Bloody Valentine Mani - Triplet Nail Collab

Catherine, Anna, and I did sweet Valentine's Day manis a couple weeks ago (see here), so today, we collaborated on some Anti-Valentine's Day nails with a "bloody hearts" theme!

My mani didn't quite translate like I wanted, but I was going for dripping blood that forms into broken hearts at the ends of the drips.

The Digit-al Dozen Does Patterns on Patterns: Dots on Stripes


Let's keep with the stripes for my third Digital Dozen mani this week!

I used all Sally Hansen polishes today: Coin Flip, Earl Gray, Firey Island (The name of this polish drives me nuts with Fiery spelled wrong -.- It is almost as bad as the grammatical monstrosity that is China Glaze Mimosa's Before Mani's. The Grammar Nazi inside me shudders.), and Statemint, dotted with Please Sea Me.

The Digit-al Dozen Does Patterns on Patterns: Leopard Spots on Stripes


Today is round two of Digital Dozen week! Today, I kept with my base of stripes, but this time added leopard spots on top, and finished everything with a matte topcoat.

Valentine's Textured Rays (Twinsie Tuesday: Anti-Valentine's Day)


I wasn't really sure what to do for "anti-Valentine's" nails today, so I just defaulted back to a design I've done before (here and here), but in more holiday-appropriate colors, while still trying to keep it on the darker side of the holiday.

The Digit-al Dozen Does Patterns on Patterns: Flowers on Stripes


I can't believe it is time for Digital Dozen week again! I struggled with this theme quite a bit. The only patterns I could come up with were variations of stripes and dots.

Surprisingly, I actually ended up really loving how my Day 1 mani turned out, though!

Twinsie Tuesday: Monochromatic - Shades of Blue Water Marble


I haven't done a water marble in a while, and I thought it would be a good monochromatic look that was easy to achieve with multiple shades of the same color.
