Color Club #1

Color Club "Pretty in Platinum" from the newest collection ~ "Untamed Luxury"

I love this color...not white, not silver, not grey, not metallic, not shimmer....just perfectly "Pretty in Platinum"!

There is NOTING in my stash like this (At least I think so ..LOL)

I'm gonna 'nad it later...planning to wear my newest Chucks today and this is a good base.

I only used one coat here.

Outside on a dreary day, no flash.

Inside with flash, shows the little flicker of shimmer-y, metal-y ness....

I have this whole collection, and will be showing more of them coming soon....hope you likey!

Be Polished!

The First Sponge.

Is old news, but I have to tell you, this is one of my most favorite NsOTD ever.... I didn't want to ever take it off....

(blogger - wth...why is this photo rotated???)

1. 2 Coats SH Insta-Dri in "Petal Pusher"
2. Sponged at the tips with Orly "Lemonade", "Snowcone" and "Pixy Stix"
3. Top coat with CG "Fairy Dusst"
4. Little pink metallic heart - from who knows where.... LOL
5. Seche

So, there's another oldie, but goodie....I am going to sport this look again when and if my nails ever grow out again.

Be Polished!

(THIS is why I love living in the country - my daily route home)

From days gone by ~ a spam extravaganza. I am not going to apologize any more for being a suck blogger. Life is what it is right now (not all bad, don't worry), but here are a few colored palettes for your viewing pleasure:a rainy day marble - my first, and rather successful attempt at water marbling.

Pool party nails - a "Welcome Home" from Iraq shindig. Metallic silver with BM swirls in black - one little aqua rhinestone on each nail (reminded me of water ripples in the pool at night)

I really didn't love this, although separately, I love the polish, the striper, and the fimo.

Purple and gold - worn for a Lakers BBall game during the playoffs - sun for LA and a gold rhinestone.
Tone on tone with holo.

Pale "baby pink" with some dots and one foil nail. This foil was surprisingly easy to apply.
Softball nails. Our summer league team the "Bossy Babes" were turquoise and white - and of course, there had to be glitter. It was a twin. :)

One more pic of the water marble thing just because I really liked it.

So, for now, dear readers.

Be Polished!
