Candy Cane Nail Stamping

Yeah yeah yeah, I know. It's New Year's Eve and here I am showing you one more holiday mani. Well, in Puerto Rico, the holidays aren't over until January 6 so candy canes are still appropriate. I don't know about you guys but I love peppermint flavored/scented things so I would rock candy cane nails any day of the year. I'd show you guys a New Year's Eve mani but I haven't decided what to do yet. I'd like something blingy but feel it's not worth the trouble since I'm not going anywhere special. Enough rambling, read on for more about my candy canes!

High Fructose Victory Swatches and Review - Quaint Paints Lacquer


Hi guys, I have a Sunday morning post for you today. I hope you've all had a lovely post-holiday weekend. I've been trying to get this post written for a couple hours now but my son is right in the middle of the terrible twos stage and the morning tantrums are awful. He's currently on my lap watching educational videos on YouTube while I'm typing one handed on my PC and drinking my homemade peppermint mocha in a giant mug. Such is the life of a mom nail polish blogger.

Now, on to the polish! You ever receive a brand new polish and gasp when you put it on? And then not want to take it off because it ends up being so much prettier than the swatches you've seen online? That's what happened to me with High Fructose Victory from Quaint Paints Lacquer. Laura, the creator of Quaint Paints, sent me High Fructose Victory and Polishin' Around the Christmas Tree to review so read on for more swatches and my thoughts. (You can see my review of Polishin' Around the Christmas Tree here.)

Christmas Poinsettia Nail Art

Hi guys! I hope everyone had a lovely day yesterday, those who celebrate Christmas and those who don't as well. I was able to squeeze in this mani in the morning while my kids where busy playing with their toys.

HPB Presents: Christmas Tree Nails


Hi guys! Today I'm participating in the Hobby Polish Bloggers December link up. HPB is a Facebook group founded by Steph from www.imperfectlypainted.com for the casual nail polish blogger. It's a great place for newbies like me to learn from more experience bloggers and get to know each other better.

This month's theme is Holiday or Winter. I chose to do some Christmas tree nails with Noodles Nail Polish Underneath the Mistletoe. Read on after the break for more pics and a macro shot of this gorgeous green polish.

Polishin' Around the Christmas Tree

I love the name of this polish so much I just had to use it for the post title! Today I have swatches and a review of Polishin' Around the Christmas Tree by Quint Paint Lacquer, a brand new indie. This is a sparkly topper with multicolored metallic circle glitters, Christmas tree glitters, and gold shimmer flakies in a clear base. I chose this slightly blurry pic because it shows the sparkles so well. It made my nails perfectly match my Christmas tree. There's more swatches and a close-up shot after the break!

Purple and Grey Plaid Stamped Nails


I have some cozy nail art for you guys today. Back in November I was trying to keep up with the #pymnovember challenges hosted by Push Your Mani on IG but I didn't have the time. I really liked the flannel/plaid nails prompt so I went ahead and did them anyway. Click for more after the break!

Pahlish Hatfield House Swatches

LED and lightbox

For this weekend I have some swatches and accent stamping of Pahlish Hatfield House. This is a dark evergreen jelly with red shimmer from the fall Royal Reverie collection. I really like this color and I'm sad that I haven't seen that many swatches of it. I have a close up and more after the break!

Neon Leopard Nail Art


Today I have a bright neon gradient with leopard spot accents using Orly nail polishes, KBShimmer Spot Sign leopard glitter and Cupcake Polish Chicago to stamp with. I'm aware that it's winter but I live in the tropics so neon is always in style. In my defense, I did these in October...not that it makes much of a difference. But October in PR is still really warm so yeah... Anyways, more pics after the break!
