It's such a great colour that I think you would love it regardless

Great color kayb.

My nail is still pissed off that I slammed it in the door.
Not ready for red and green yet so did nails in Slaly Hansen Violet Voom. I can never get a good picture of this color. It's a gorgeous amethyst.

^^^ jeepy have the same thing going on with my left big toe. that's why i've had to do dark colors for months. it seems to be growing out so slow. i wonder if the whole nail is going to fall off or if i can just continue to cut it back.

colors i've worn before but switched what's on the nails and what's on the toes. i cut my toenails too short (again) but whatever. my nails are also a little shorter than i like but i like the colors.

orly flicker (toes), sally hansen insta dri pronto purple (nails)

The first pic is my Thanksgiving manicure. It is a manicure over my old manicure done by a 4 year old. The thumb is mostly Wet n Wild Megalast Disturbia topped with Pure Ice Oh Baby.

I got a set of Wet n Wild megalast minis on sale at CVS. This one is Under Your Spell. In the bottle it looks like a black base with enough red shimmer to make it appear dark red or maroon. On the nail it looks like a blackened brown with a very light hint of red shimmer. The next pic is it matted with NYC Matte Me Crazy. Matte it looks like it might be related to Manglaze Santorum, but with a subtle flash of maroon. I like, but don't love this weird color.

I finally got around to painting my child's nails and stamped a design on there. This is a Sally Hansen silver with a Finger Paints red on top. Design is a Bundle Monster candy design, hard to see as her nails are still very small. Hard to photograph too due to the shiny silver but in person it looks pretty good.

I just finished mine too. Used the silver as a base coat because even though it wasn't quick dry, it dried very fast. Then stamped with a Bundle Monster houndstooth design in China Glaze Liquid Leather. Still need to clean up more. It's not mistake free but I think it turned out pretty good as this was the first time I intended to wear it and was not just practicing.

Another Wet n Wild Megalast mini. This one is Haze of Love. I probably wouldn't have picked this color, but I like it.

I have a question for the nail fans here...I don't know too much about my nails, having never paid much attention to them, but I was using Seche Vite and OPI chip skip on them for a bit, with OPI or China Glaze polishes, then they all broke and chipped ;p so now I have *really* short, chipped, peeling nails. I have been applying grapeseed oil and olive oil like mad, and moisturising like crazy, but it doesn't seem to be helping...

So i am thinking to have gel nails applied until after December, just to give them a chance to grow, and so i can look reasonable at all the social functions i have to attend for Christmas... Any advice, warnings, or encouragements to give in regard to gel nails? Any help would be appreciated...TIA!

I'm a nail polish changing fool lately. This one is Wet 'n Wild Megalast I Red a Good Book. I love this red on me. I think it is a great classic red cream.

Knotty Maddy- I don't know any of the answers to your questions. The blog loodie loodie loodie has lots of great nail care and basic nail info. That should be a good place to look for answers.

My attempt at galaxy nails. I wish I'd made the dot stars smaller, but I love it otherwise.

Did another stamping manicure. I'm going to cold, possibly snowy Wisconsin in one week so I did a snowflake design. Stamping is getting really easy now that I have done it a couple of times. I haven't cleaned it up yet.
