Life Update & OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection

So, it's been a while. :) Understatement of the universe. I don't think I will be posting a ton but I think I want to start doing my nails again. Here's a little update on my life.

I got married.

We have a little family.
L-R: P (stepdaughter), hubby G, Mishka, and I.

I've become a crazy dog person. 
We do dog park meets with huskies and other northern breeds.

So needless to say my life is a little hectic. My nails are crap and I barely take care of them let alone have time to do some of the fun manicures I used to.

But despite everything the new Fifty Shades of Gray OPI collection came out and I HAD to have it despite my personal opinions on the novel and movie.

Love the grays, so I did a little manicure with Shine for Me (accent) and Embrace the Gray. Even though I actually bought the mini set, the quality is on par for OPI. Both went on smoothly with only 2 coats to full coverage.

So I hope to post a little. I already have 2 other manicures planned. I just know I won't be as active as I once was. Having a life and a family takes up a lot of my time, which I'm happy to spend time with them rather than spend so much time online.

Hope everyone is well. :)

Long overdue update.

If you guys follow me on my Facebook page, I've explained why I've been gone for so long.

Lift has taken the high road and I have been incredibly busy the last several months. I don't have nearly as much free time as I once had. My boyfriend proposed to me on November 2, 2012 and now I've been focusing all of my time and energy into planning a wedding for next year.

I do miss blogging about my nail polish and doing nail art, but I just haven't had the time to blog let alone barely paint my nails. I hope all you guys can understand.

I did plan on coming back after the New Year but now I'm not sure that's even possible. I may (when I have the time) go through some older pictures I have and post some of those. Unfortunately anything new and weekly like I used to do may be a long time coming.

Anyway, I hope you guys have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. :)

Trelly's Polish — Pumpkins Scream

So tomorrow is Halloween and I'm terribly behind on being active on my blog. I've still been swatching and taking photos, just not really keeping up with everything with how BUSY life is. OTL.

So here's another quickie for you guys.

Today I have Trelly's Polish Pumpkins Scream which is a clear/blue base polish filled with multi colored glitters in black, blue, teal, purple, and orange.

This is 1-2 thin coats layered over China Glaze Harvest Moon. I had a hard time choosing a base for this combo but I think HM works well.

Trelly's Polish can be purchased at her Etsy shop.

Until next time~ :)

Smitten Polish — Fire and Blood

Very long time no post! Life has been terribly chaotic recently and I have had no time for anything, let alone editing and posting blog posts. I barely even get a chance to paint my nails more than once a week now. OTL.

Today I just have a quickie for you guys.

Smitten Polish Fire and Blood is a blood red jelly base packed with red, orange, and holographic glitters. This was a part of the Game of Thrones duo, which I still have to post the other from it...

Anyway, on to the pictures!

I don't remember how many coats this was or even if it was layered over something, but as you can see this is an absolutely beautiful red polish (something I never wear!). It's become one of my favorites in my collection.

You can purchase Smitten Polish from their Etsy shop for $9.00 for a full 15ml bottle.

Until next time~ :)

Smitten Polish — The One On The Right

Another indie brand polish for you guys today.

Smitten Polish The One On The Right is a periwinkle blue base polish with a mix of blue and purple glitter.

This is 2-3 coats of The One On The Right to full opacity. Application was really good on this polish. The glitter is evening distributed throughout the polish so you don't have to worry about fishing or putting more coats on for better glitter coverage.

I really liked this polish. You can purchase Smitten Polish from her Etsy shop.

Until next time~ :)

Trelly's Polish — Violet, You're Turning Violet

Today I have a new-to-the -blog indie brand. It's Trelly's Polish. I don't remember how I came across her polishes, but I saw a few and had to get them. 

Violet, You're Turning Violet is a blue/clear base with multi sized/shaped blue, purple, and white glitter.

This is 2 thin coats of Violet, You're Turning Violet over China Glaze Sweet Hook.

Overall I like this polish, but I do wish the glitter was a little more dense. It looks a lot denser in the bottle than on the nail and because the base is slightly tinted, using the dabbing method can cause the base coat to build up in darker patches and I don't like that.

I have yet to try out the other two polishes I got from her, but I'm hoping those will be denser.

You can purchase Trelly's Polish from her Etsy shop for $9.00 for a full 15ml bottle.

Until next time~ :)

Enchanted Polish — Vampire's Dessert

Not even going to bother writing a whole lot about this since it's the SECOND time I've had this publish without remembering to edit it. Lol.

This is Enchanted Polish Vampire's Dessert. It is a beautiful deep brown holographic polish.

2 coats to full opacity. This is seriously another amazing holographic from Enchanted polish.

You can purchase Enchanted Polishes from Llarowe and Harlow&Co for varying prices.

Until next time~ :)
