Nail Crazies Unite - Fall Foliage

Greetings and Nailutations,

It's time for a Nail Crazies Unite posting!  The theme is Fall Foliage.  I've actually had this mani done for a few weeks and purposely saved it for this post (I knew I wouldn't have time to make a new mani for the theme).  As a reminder - Nail Crazies Unite is a group on Facebook, where a theme is selected every other week and we all do nail art interpreting the theme our own way!  Feel free to follow to participate!

Now let's get to the mani!

Digit-al Dozen: Colour Contrasts College Colors (sort of)

Greetings and Nailutations,

Day 4 of the Digit-al Dozen does Colour Contrasts and I decided to go with my college colors from a few (*cough* maybe 10...ok ok 15 years ago).  It seems like college colors are all contrasting colors - I wonder if that was planned?  I decided to pair purple and yellow, but used pastels!

Now let's get to the mani!

Digit-al Dozen: Colour Contrasts Spin on Silver and Gold

Greetings and Nailutations,

We are on day 3 of the Digit-al Dozen's Colour Contrasts.  When I think of contrasts I think of things you wouldn't necessarily pair together - like silver and gold (oh the horror!!).  I did a spin on silver using grey (or gray if you prefer) and gold using yellow.

Now let's get to the mani!

Digit-al Dozen: Colour Contrasts Pink and Blue Skittlette

Greetings and Nailutations!

It's Digit-al Dozen week and this week the theme is Colour Contrasts (or Color if you prefer).  I'm an equal opportunity speller and embrace being able to mix and match spellings (grey vs gray).  OK, enough with my lecturing on unity.  :)  So....as you can see, I had a nail shape change...(for 1 mani).  I love the shape of squoval/square, but for the life of me, I can't do it without scratching myself and drawing blood.  So after this mani, you'll see it go back to round.

Let's get to the mani!

Drip Drop Grab Nail Paint Grab Bag BCA Polishes and Nail Art

Greetings and Nailutations,

Drip Drop Nail Paint has some of the best grab bags.  I say this for a few reasons:

  1. They are $15-$16 for 3 polishes
  2. She tries to accommodates requests (if you love glitter bombs or pinks or greens - she will set you up so you have a huge smile on your face), just leave a comment!
  3. Some of them have themes!
Today I'll be sharing the BCA (Breast Cancer Awareness) grab bag and some nail art I happened to do with each polish.  She donated a portion of the sales to a member of the nail community's mother who is going through treatments for breast cancer.  

Now let's get to the swatches!

K*Sea Gale's Nails 7 Grandfather Teachings Collection Nail Art

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Press Sample*
One of my favorite holo collections is from K*Sea Gale's Nails called the 7 Grandfather Teachings Collection.  The collection contains 7 colors to create a soft rainbow and I swatched and reviewed them back in April.  Not only did I love the assortment of colors, I loved the story behind the polish names.  I wanted to create a separate blog post for some of the nail art I did that really showcases the amazing properties of this collection.
Property 1: THEY STAMP!

Now let's get to the manis!

Envy Lacquer Thirty, Flirty and Fabulous Trio Swatch and Review with Nail Art

Greetings and Nailutations!

*Nothing to disclose*
Thirty...going from 29 to 30 can be scary...heck my grandma informed me that she told her children she was 29 for 5 years in a row until they started questioning it.  It's a new decade, we are older, we are wiser, we are more independent - we should love our 30's. Why am I talking about 30??  Because the trio I am bringing you today is in celebration of the owner of Envy Lacquer's 30th birthday.  The trio has been out for awhile but since they are in stock.  The trio consist of a holographic polish, a crelly and a glitter crelly.

Now let's get to the swatches (and nail art!)!
