I did my nieces nails for Halloween she was a zombie so i wanted them to look gross, dirty and ragged with broken , split off pieces. They turned out real ucky looking i also did her make up to look like she had ripped at her face some and that she was rotting like a zombie should be I used tissues and Elmer school glue to do the torn skin. I sure hope she picks to be something pretty next year!

I was going to do pink this week but all these reds are making me rethink it!

None at the moment but I really want Casino Royale. I'll wear that for a week and then I want to switch off to Live & Let Die. Both by OPI.

I'm not usually wild about quick dry polish but that blue was so pretty!

Not nail related, but, all this nail talk made me think of this picture. It's one thing to intellectually know that I have a giant head, but it's a whole other thing to see my Amazonian head next to normal headed people. :/

Why do I know so many tall, buxom redheads? Ok, so I only know two, but that's statistically unlikely, right?

(is jealous that I'm not a tall redhead)

I got my Zoya order. They were doing a promo last week before the hurricane where you would get Storm (black w/ scattered holo glitter) free with a purchase of another color, so I got that one and Ziv (gold foil).

DH brought out his creative side and tried to do my DD2's nails. They first tried some swirly technique and only a few came out good. She got upset trying to fix them and DH changed them into flames per DD2's request. I must say I am envious of his ability to do stuff like this with such ease and little practice.

So, I'm flipping channels and on QVC the Today's Special Value is a set of Sephora by OPI nail polish minis in such a great assortment of colors. So pretty! Ugh. I won't order them, I just won't.

That doll is cool.

I forgot to add my mani's that i did on myself in my other post. Last week I did my nails in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service from the OPI Skyfall collection. FYI This was a pain to get off with non acitone nail polish remover so I ended up having to get some to take this polish off. My index fingers on both hands paid the price, it made my nails real dry and they cracked while I was doing house work.
For this week I attempted to do a water marble using the China Glaze Bohemian Chrome colocetion after seeing so many pretty ones on other nail bloggers pages. The colors just blend in so pretty together.
This is only my second attempt at doing a water marble, they can be messy even using tape I also forgot to use "undies" for mine and after doing them I now wish I had used a black under coat cause the Swanky Silk would of showed up much better.

I've been looking at this all day. I love minis and love many of the colors. But so far I have stopped myself from buying them.

Dang! They're showing them again right now! la la la la can't see them la la la.

The first terrible pic is of China Glaze Mahogany Magic with a Spoiled Jewelery Heist glitter gradient. I hated it.
Then I got inspired and decided to do a cheap plastic imitation of Zoya Storm. Wet n Wild Black Creme with Wet n Wild Kaleidoscope. I like in low light, but I probably don't need a whole bottle of Zoya Storm.
