Nudey Gold

A while back I did a swap with Stephanie from SoNailed, she has a great nail blog so check it out! I still have colors I havent used yet so I tried this one out last night. Its a great brand called Essence thats pretty opaque but I did get a small chip today and it hasnt even been 24 hours boo! I do have peely nails which Im working on so maybe its me. Anyways this is a nice nude color with gold flecks I wouldnt say glitter its more shimmery. Really pretty, I think next time Ill try to layer it over some colors.

Minnie Mouse Nails

I havent been to Disneyland in 15 years and went this past weekend! We had a blast and even dinner at the coveted Club 33 and I really wanted to do some Minnie inspired nails. I decided on the half-moon manicure and painted the base red and then used my dotting tool for the white polka dots. I have only used this tool one time before on this floral design. Using my left hand to make the dots was a little shakey but not horrible. I then added the black bows on the ring finger and added a black rhinestone in the center. I love this design and felt very, "in the Disney spirit" :)

Polish: OPI The Thrill Of Brazil

Blue Floral

I got this color for my sisters baby shower (since shes having a boy) but we ended up going in a different direction. I still love the color and its the perfect sky blue in my opinion. I had it on my toes and decied to do a mani with it. I added Bundle Monster flower stamp in random patterns and it turned out really pretty. Here is another look for this mani in gold and black.
