Drop Dead Diva

Hey guys

So far today I've spent most of the day shuffling through old emails and old photo albums trying to get stuff off of the old computer my parents have so I can put it all on their new computer they just bought. Yes I am my family's resident computer tech and sometimes it's a huge pain. To be fair though I can't complain because while out buying said computer this little man was also gifted to me.
  Everyone who knows me how much I love the movie Despicable Me and over everything how much I love minions. This is Dave and he is awesome. So no complaining about schlepping through computer junk.

Okay so nails.
I love the show Drop Dead Diva and in the show dead supermodel Deb's lucky polish is a teal polish (I can't remember the name of it and am way too lazy right now to find out) so her thing is always doing her pinky in the teal for good luck no matter what the colour of the rest of her manicure is.

so for this DDD inspired manicure I used
OPI - Do You Think I'm Tex-y (Pink)
OPI - Austin-tatious Turquoise

And in other news... IT'S ATL's 100th POST!!! Holy crap!! Time flies!

Rainbow Manicure

Hey guys,

So I'm right in the middle of switching internet browsers. So this will probably be short and sweet cause I have quite a few bookmarks to re-save.

Anyways so continuing on in my addicted to nail art and apparently RAIIIINBOWS
.... funny cause I found a set of "love poem" magnets that I have on my filing cabinet at work and my coworker has moved them around to say "I'm a rainbow goddess ...." something something I can't remember exactly what it says so it seems appropriate.

For this I used 
Orly Au Champagne as a base 
then all of my 
Color Club Art Club neons.

Chloe's Chihuahua Bites!

Hey ladies

So lately I've been trying to extend the life of my manicures, so if I'm really digging a colour I'll try to add something to it or maybe matte it and wear it for another day. I'm trying to make my nail polish remover last a bit until I can find some more, I really love Essie Naturally but I bought it at Winners and haven't seen it anywhere else :(

So This was from my OPI My Chihuahua Bites! manicure from a few posts ago.

To this I added

Zoya - Chloe
which is one of the Zoya flakies.

I loved the result!

We're hitting a milestone in a couple days eek!! can you guess what?

Rainbow Zebra

Hey guys.

So i've recently decided that I need to watch Mad Men. Now instead of just starting to watch it and keep my mouth shut nope I told Jill who asked if we could watch it together except I had to wait until after exams....


seriously so now I have to wait until like MID APRIL before getting my Don Draper on!!
yep Jill I'm giving you the evil eye right now.

Anyways so NAILSSSS

I've really been obsessed with nail art lately and just doing a little something different.
However my nail art colours are limited soooo if anyone is feeling charitable. You can buy me nail art pens/polishes :D
j/k.... kind of

For this rainbow Zebra I used
OPI - Ogre The Top Blue
Orly - Lucky Duck
Nails Inc. Carnaby Street
OPI - Atomic Orange
Zoya - Gia
Color Club Art Club in Neon Purple/Blue/Green/Yellow/Orange.

I did this while I watched Prince of Persia (I just love that movie hence the random mention)
And I'm pretty happy about how it turned out... less happy about the green/blue finger

Designer Series Diagonal Tape Mani

Hey Ladies,

Hope you're having a great Sunday. So far I've pretty much just been reading, watching TV (Pawn Stars & American Restoration WOOHOO) and cleaning dog hair out of my laptop keyboard with a pair of tweezers haha super productive.

Anyways obviously I can't stay away from my two OPI DS polishes and I can't wait to get my hands on more.  However until further notice my polish buying practices are cut off. However I'm going to make a list of To-Buy polishes and post it on here just so I can keep track of Must-Haves. :)

This is
OPI DS Extravagance
OPI DSTemptation

Keep an eye out for my To-Buy List

OPI My Chihuahua Bites!

Eek! So exciting news
So I had my consultation today. Now heres the facts. I could not have found a better artist to do this. I can't wait to show you guys! May 5th it starts!

Anyways today I just have a a really gorgeous pink for you

OPI My Chihuahua Bites!

the brush in this bottle was probably the worst brush I've ever found in an OPI bottle the bristles were uneven and one was even looped around. It's fixed now but I just thought it was bizarre.

Anyways here you go.

Pastel Spots

Hey ladies,
So I would love to tell you how my consult today went but after heading all the way downtown and killing an hour in a random (but nice and cozy) Starbucks I was to discover that my tattoo artist had gone home sick apparently without telling anyone. So we're going to try again for tomorrow.

Okay so I'm going to share with you this Pastel Sponge manicure that I really wasn't a fan of. I don't even really know why I just didn't dig it

I used
Essie - Cocktail Bling
China Glaze - Lemon Fizz
OPI - Gargantuan Green Grape
OPI - Pink Friday
Sparitual - Thunder Road

maybe because the purple turned out so close to the grey. who knows.

Hunger Games Watermarble

Hey Guys!

So good news! I made it through the day headache free, which considering I went home yesterday to sit in the dark around 11 is a good thing.
Now can I say HOLY CRAP is it snowing outside. wow apparently mother nature missed the "It's Spring" memo.

Umm in other exciting news: My good friend Cindy got engaged this week!! Yep I'm a little late on announcing that but she'll forgive me.
Also my cousin Alex got engaged yesterday soooo engagements all around!
So stoked. I love weddings.

It was Tracy's last day today so I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do without her. She also managed to talk me into trying a piece of "Thrills" gum today. BLECH worst idea ever! Seriously who wants to eat something that tastes like soap??? So weird.

Other than that my tattoo consult is tomorrow! It had better stop snowing by the time I have to go downtown. I hate going downtown nevermind when the roads are total crap. Fingers crossed.

Anyways NAILS.
So I have another watermarble for you guys. This one is the best so far but I am a far cry from being good at this, but I'm getting better!
This is my Hunger Games watermarble for this I used
China Glaze - Dress Me Up
China Glaze - Mahogany Magic
China Glaze - Foie Gras
China Glaze - Fast Track

Wish me luck tomorrow!!

NYX Silver Plum

Hey guys,

So good news I woke up this morning without a headache so everyone cross your fingers that that bugger stays gone!!
Apparently I need to go to bed at 8:30 more often. Okay it was more like lying in the dark til 10:30 but still it was nice quiet time.

Today's polish issssss:

NYX - Silver Plum

This is a rather sheer colour that could definitely benefit from having a base colour underneath it.
It's different though, I don't have anything quite like this one.
