From the Vault: Twisted Jem

Hello lovelies! Here's another from the vault that I probably wore in summer of 2012 - right after my hunt for Finger Paints - Twisted finally netted me the flakie goodness. I saw post after post of manis topped with Twisted and HAD TO HAVE IT. I found it eventually after running William all about the big city of Greenville because my Sally Beauty in middle-of-nowhere Greenwood never stocked new stuff.

Nail Polish Breakdown:
Zoya - Jem
Finger Paints - Twisted



I love this on top of a dark color like Jem!


So. Many. Colors!


In this one you can see a bit more of Jem's shimmer.


And look at all that bottle shimmer too!


I've seen people compare FP Twisted to Cult Nails Unicorn Puke that was such a huge hit. How do you think they compare? Were you able to score Twisted or Unicorn Puke?

I hope you enjoyed this one! I love the rainbow of colors in Twisted. Makes me happy!

Firefly Nail Art: The Hero of Canton, The Man They Call Jayne

Hello lovelies! Today I've got something for all of you Firefly and Serenity fans out there.



Now tell me - now that I said that, what does this mani make you think of? To anyone that said Jayne's hat - DING DING DING! You win!!!

Nail Polish Breakdown:
1 coat Orly Bonder rubberized basecoat
2 coats Sinful Colors - Firefly
Sponged with Sinful Colors - Cloud 9 and Courtney Orange
1 coat KleanColor - Holo Bluebell
1 coat Poshe fast-drying topcoat



Shiny!


Left to right:
KleanColor - Chunky Holo Bluebell
Sinful Colors - Firefly
Sinful Colors - Courtney Orange
Sinful Colors - Cloud 9

I had no clue what to do when I started this mani, but as soon as I picked up Firefly, everything just came together! Jayne's hat was just calling to be put into nail art!

Here's a video of Adam Baldwin (Jayne) singing the "Hero of Canton" song while wearing his famous hat.



So who is your favorite character from Firefly? I've been told that I look a little like Kaylee. Shiny, eh?

Life Events... I'M ENGAGED AND WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!

Hi lovelies! This has been a long time coming, and I kept hinting at it, but I finally had to let you guys know! Back in October 2012, William proposed to me while we were on a cruise on the Freedom of the Seas! I had absolutely no clue, and I was only too happy to say yes!


Here's my ring! Isn't it BEAUTIFUL?!? And guess what else - it glows blue under blacklight too! **Oooooh, Ahhhhh...** Blue is Will's favorite color and one of mine as well. [More pictures of this mani to come!]

And then, in February we bought a house! A great three bedroom place with an open floor plan that we both LOVE! Pictures to come when I've finally gotten the decor the way I want it. That reminds me that I need to go shopping for curtains tonight! Yay shopping!

Things here have been busy busy busy planning wedding stuff and housewarming parties, so the nails have fallen by the wayside a little bit. I should still be popping in from time to time with nails. (I've comandeered the guest bedroom to use as a polish station!)

I do really want to thank all of you for keeping up with me even though I haven't been posting very often. I think I went from around 112 followers to 150 without posting much, so thanks so much to all of you that are new followers, and of course all of my previous followers too! (Unfortunately Google has decided to get rid of Google Friend Connect, but I have others ways you can follow me - I'll be posting an update on that as well. Just check the right sidebar, for now I have Facebook, Twitter, Bloglovin, and Google +. Google Reader - oopsies! I misread someone's post - but Google is getting rid of just Reader. I just switched to Feedly!)

I do have a mani to show you that I wore recently that I'm sure any of you Firefly or Serenity fans will love - soon!

Zoya Dannii

Hey lovelies! I know it's been a while, and I've been super busy, so right now I'm giving you a couple older nails to catch up. I've got Zoya - Dannii for you today, and I absolutely love this color! It's a great lilac with pink and silver shimmer.


I really loved the sparkle in this polish. Sooo pretty!!! 





And here's a shady shot for you!

Gotta love purples, right? Let me know what your favorite purples are - maybe I'll just have to add them to my collection! (Muahahaha!)
