Cosmo... The Perfect Drink and the Perfect Pixie

I have to admit, textured polishes aren't always my favorite.  But, I had never tried Zoya Pixies and I finally bought some a couple of months ago.  It was so hard to decide which one I wanted!  I ended up choosing Cosmo from the Magical Pixie Dust Spring 2014 collection.  Now it is taking all of my will power to resist buying the rest of the collection!  

This is more than a glitter bomb, this is like a disco ball on steroids in a bottle.  Zoya Cosmo is a silver textured polish with large iridescent hex particles.  Textured polishes can be tricky to apply smoothly but this applied nicely with minimal effort.  I applied 2 coats for full opacity.  

The mint shade is my favorite summer polish, Essie Absolutely Shore.  I love how these two polishes pair together.  To create the gradient accent nail I used an eyeshadow applicator to dab on the glitter polish then smoothed it out with topcoat.  I did not use topcoat on the middle finger in order to maintain the textured look.  

The best thing about this particular Pixie is that it can be paired with almost any shade.  But I think I want to try one of the others too... maybe Lux?  If you haven't tried them yet, I totally recommend them.  I got so many compliments on this mani.  I think the glitter really caught their eyes.  You can see this stuff from space! 

What is your favorite Zoya Pixie Dust?

4th of July FUN!!

If you live in the US, you know that today is the 4th of July. Yet another holiday to be able to do awesome nail art!!  Now, we all know that nail art is not my forte, however, I got some new brushes from Sally's and I couldn't wait to try them out.

I have been looking at a lot of ideas on Pinterest and other blogs. This is a compilation of some of my favorites that I saw from all over the blogisphere. I wish I could tag all the people who inspired this creation, but I don't remember where they came from. 

My pinky and thumb nails are supposed to be fireworks. LOL  They didn't come out as I expected, but I have very little brush control, so I guess I'll get better with practice. I added some rhinestones for some extra dimension. 

The star is my favorite of all these designs. I have never used negative space before, but I've always loved the way it looks. I'm super proud that I was able to pull this one off so well.

And who could do a 4th of July mani without some American flags!!! 

My new brushes are awesome! I was able to make really straight lines for the first time. They were well worth the small investment.

What are on your nails for the holiday? Post them on our FB wall, we would love to see them.

Brighter Than the Sun!

I have found ANOTHER favorite summer color!!! Um....anything BRIGHT or NEON!! With my skin getting more and more tan, these colors look freaking amazing!!

The base for this mani is China Glaze Hightlight of My Summer. It's a super bright minty green. I had this on my toes too and it caught a lot of eyes. I'm officially obsessed!!

I stamped using Sinful Shine Most Sinful.  Whenever I feel like I'm getting better with stamping, I take a close up pic and my confidence crumbles.  :(

These looked really good from a far, and then they looked so smudged in these pics. Oh well, such is life. #nailbloggerproblems  I still really loved the way this mani came out and I will definitely be using this color again during the summer months.

What are your favorite colors for summer? Brights, pastels, neons?? I LOVE THEM ALL!!!
