The Hunger Games!

Well this past monday I saw the Hunger Games and let me just say it did not disappoint! It was better than expected and if the costume designers don't win some awards I will be shocked! I wanted to do a mani in honor of the film and while I can't do great nail art, I decided to use the China Glaze Hunger Games collection to see what I could come up with. The collection has 12 polishes and I love them all but for this mani I used only 4. The base of the mani was Smoke and Ashes followed by a layer of Riveting. I used Electrify on the tips and added a touch of Luxe and Lush to top it off. They all have great formulas and the colors are to die for. Here are some pics!

I hope you enjoyed my little tribute to the tributes and in parting let me say
May the odds be ever in your favor!

I love a vampy red!

One of my friends in my polish group recently twisted my arm pretty heavily when it was discovered there was a bottle of OPI Vampire State Building for sale at a fairly reasonable price. VSB is a very hard to find polish that is a beautiful vampy red creme. This is MY color but I have so many vampy reds do I need one more? The answer is an emphatic YES! This polish does not disappoint, easy application, opaque in two coats and a fun name to boot! I have no regrets spending a few duckets on this polish, let me know what you think!

These are all in a flash environment, two coats with topcoat

I have been a busy girl!

Well I am sorry to have neglected you all for so long! I promise to make it up to you with some Fantastic news!
My friend Rhonni over at Polish Ninja and I have opened an internet store called Ninja Polish! We are going to try and bring you unique and harder to obtain polishes for a reasonable price! You can find us here at Ninja Polish. We have had quite the first day and a lot of things are sold out but be patient we are feverishly re-ordering so we can fulfill all of your polish needs.

 Since I haven't posted in a while I wanted to bring you something special. One of the lines we carry at
Ninja Polish is Nerd Lacquer. Amanda makes some of the most interesting and unique polishes I have ever seen. Today I have chosen a limited edition duo called Holy Grail and Carbon Allotrope. These are both opaque in 2-3 coats, maybe 4 if you do very thin layers. But they are absolutely gorgeous! 

Carbon Allotrope is a clear base with medium silver hex  glitter, small silver glitter and silver and white microglitter. The silver sand color comes from powdered diamond dust.

Look at that sparkle and shine!

Also from the website, 
Holy Grail is a super fine grained satiny linear holo that glows in the dark. It is a dusty blue-green base with silver microglitter, medium blue-green iridescent glitter and a sprinkling of big square and hex silver holo glitter.
