There were approx 250 colors to choose from so it was fun going
through them all.
I already had my manicure done this morning before the mail came so I just added
a coat of chunky glitter to my thumb.

Base color - Sally Hansen Inta Dri in Teal Takeoff.
Accent on ring finger and thumb - Avon Nailwear Pro in Sequined Turquoise
Glitter on thumb - Kleancolor in Starry Blue (pic does not do this justice. gorgeous large and small rainbow holo).
I loooove the blue on the far left. I have to have it, what's it called?
the bright blue one? That's called Sea Ice

Looks like you have your choice of 50ish reds. I went with Sooki, which I've been eyeing for a while now. And Shawn, which is a lovely olive green.

Zoya is swiftly becoming my favorite brand. The giveaways don't hurt.

And hey, thanks for the tip!

Zoya is my favorite brand too. Sookie does look awesome in swatches. Shawn and my skin tone would never be friends.

I ended up with Rica as my "red" (sparkly coral) and Elodie (pink coral). I should be set for summer.

A lot of the reds are more coral or purple or pink if someone is like me and thinking they don't need reds.

mannnnnnnnnn pedaheh I really love you.


I got carmen, and bought their intense repair balm. (I also have a lip product obsession)

I actually don't have a red in my collection....I have about 10 different shades of pink that all look identical to the naked eye. (and by naked I mean someone who isn't crazy about polish like me)

I got Sooki and Bevin. I've been eyeing Bevin since the spring collection came out last month, so why not?

I got Sookie and Gemma. I have no reds at all so it'll be interesting. I can't wear red shirts but I think I could pull off red polish. We'll see.

I ordered Jade ( it looked sparkly!) Nimue, and Maisie. Zoya sure has lovely colors, this might be my new polish obsession!

I am posting pictures of my little shopping spree I had this weekend with nail polish and nail art supplies. My husband is super sweet for indulging me with my polish obsession.

while picking up my nieces meds, she spotted 75%off nail polish so we picked these up

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7209/6...a8786a64_m.jpg

At the mall, I found Clairs to have magnetic nail polish for $8 buy one get one free!

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7184/6...be786087_m.jpg

Then we went to the craft store to find a real fine brush size 10/0 that is a size recommended by a nail art blogger I enjoy watching on youtube named LOVE4NAILS and I also got a calligraphy kit and a paint mixing try and rhinestones

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7198/6...4a47c47a_m.jpg

And at Sally's they had a dollar off coupon for China Glaze so I got a few of those as well as nail polish thinner. I cant wait for them to have the Hunger Game Capital colors out, I have my eye on four of those.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7055/6...c898eee6_m.jpg

My husband surprised her and I for a Valentines day treat and took us to my friends nail salon ( he even made the appointment without me knowing! ) and we got manicures.I had a French Manicure and she chose a sparkly purple glitter polish. She has never been to the nail salon so her reaction to the lady getting a pedicure done was quite funny, I promised her we will get one in the summer so we can show off our toes.

And if that wasn't enough, he took me out to dinner. I had a lovely weekend!

So, I'm planning to do a Mardi Gras mani, but didn't want to wear it for a week. So I did my very first half moon mani over my Valentines mani. It was so easy even I could do a respectable job on my first try. It is not the best color combo, but I was starting with the red and wanted to experiment. Rimmel Purple Rain over OPI Big Apple Red.
I tried to buy a Claire's magentic polish. But I just couldn't pull the trigger on a 10$ teeny tiny bottle. I'm a cheepskate.

My Claire's store had them on sale over the weekend, buy one get one free deal, so that's the only reason why I even bothered getting them. I had beed looking at the ones at Sephora by Nails Inc. I think I surprised myself when I left the store empty handed that day!

There is definitely a learning curve to this. I had some trouble holding the magnet close enough without touching my wet nail and had to do a few of them over. Not bad for the first time, though!
