It's been a really long time since I blogged and I really miss it and I miss you so I'm gonna try to get back on the blogging horse. So in this time that I've been away I kept painting my nails and trying to take pictures and that's what I'm gonna share with you in the upcoming days.
For today I have a mani that I loved. It's purple with gold stars (What's not to like?) For the base color I'm using Milani Purple Pop Art, in my ring finger I have a coat of Essie Shine of Times, hence the flakies and both star designs were stamped with China Glaze Passion and Cheeky plates.
Check it out:
I was seriously in love with this design I didn't want to remove it. Do you like this combo?
Thanks for reading <3
Today's challenge was great for me, sponging your nails is such a fun disaster. There were so many options for gradient nails, glitter, different tones of the same color... I chose holographic.
I used OPI Alpine Snow as base and sponged my nails with Milani Hi-Res and added Color Club Wild At Heart at the tips to make it more dramatic.
I'm really digin' this gradient nails and it's something I've never tried before which is another perk of doing the challenge: Stepping out of your comfort zone.You must visit my lovely ladies blog to check their gradient nails:

Today I just have a quick post from a polish I bought yesterday in a mini haul before going to work. It's Milani Goldie Locks which cost me $1 (That's basically why I got it). The formula is extremely sheer and watery, it took me like 6 or 7 thin coats to have the results in the pics, check it out:
If you don't have the patience to apply 7 coats then this polish is still a good option for layering over white or maybe over some skin toned polish.
Last month I had to take the bus, actually 3 buses, to go home after work (I always catch a ride with my bf) and right in front of the last bus stop I found this make up/ beauty store and I ended up buying a lot of nail polish cause I was there everyday.
They only sell cheap brands like Kleancolor, L.A colors, that sort of thing but still I found a few polishes to add to my collection.
First off I bought 4 Kleancolor nail polishes. I was really surprised to find a holo one (score!) which is basically what kept me going back during the week.
From left to right I bought:
*Leaves Jingle -> A forest green jelly like base with green glitter.
* Holo Chrome -> An amazing holographic purple color.
* Sparkle purple -> A clear base with purple glitter.
* Pink Lady -> A barbie pink with silver shimmer.
Then I got 2 Milani nail polishes which I totally love:
* Gold Digger -> A Coralish pink with tons of gold shimmer.
* Golden Girl -> A hot pink with tons of gold and pink shimmer.
I also got 2 glitter top coats from a brand named Adoro. They don't have names just numbers so from left to right I have number 26 and 15.
I found the LA Girl Metal collection which came out last summer I think and fell for it immediately. Initially I bought like 3 bottles but then I had to go back to the store and get more.
From left to right: Metallic Olive, Deep Sea Mica, Alkaline Blue, Trilogy, Iron Red, Brass, Gold Plated.
And last but not least, L.A Colors Color Craze in Mega Watt, Seashell, Goddess, Transformer, Electrified.
That was it. What do you think? See any colors you like?
Today I have a quick post of the nail polish I'm currently wearing.
It's Milani Gold Digger, an orange/coral color, I'm still undecided cause it look more orange under artificial light but outside in the sun it looks more coraly.
Anyways, it has tons of little gold shimmer that makes it super shiny and gorgeous, I've never been drown to buy Milani nail polishes (Except for glitters) but this one really caught my eye.
Do you own any of the regular Milani nail polishes? Let me know what you think.
