This is two coats of Pretty and Polished Me, Myself, and Cacti! A fun and funky neonish green jelly with black and white glitter. I stamped on the design with Ulta Quick Silver and You Mix Cosmetics Stamping Plate D. 

(This mani looks like something I should wear around Halloween, huh?!)



Stamping on bare nail

If you are short on time, try stamping on your bare nails. It is fast and easy (with little dry time). I started with a coat of clear base coat. I did a "gradient" stamp with konad stamping polishes in green, blue, and yellow (I basically did three stripes of color on the stamping image and then scrapped). I finished the mani with a coat of top coat. I really like the look of how my bare nail shows through underneath.

The two polishes used in this design were purchased from Charlotte Russe. They do not have names on them. When I saw them in the store, I HAD to have them. They are very bright, summery, and turns out to be good for stamping. The downfall (which is a big one) is that by the next day my polish was chipping off in sheets (very annoying). All stamped images are from You Mix Cosmetics stamping plate D.

I have been neglecting my blog for quite some time (my attention has been diverted to our sweet baby girl who is almost three months old). I hope I can get back into the swing of things because I miss sharing my manis. =)

Today I have swatches of the entire Pretty and Polished Blogger Collection.  I was happy when Chelsea asked me to be one of the featured bloggers. The collection as a whole is awesome! There is a good mix of funky, simple, fun, sparkle, and shimmer. Something for everyone!


This is two coats of Pretty and Polished Me, Myself, and Cacti. This is a fun, funky polish! I see myself wearing this around Halloween time. I love the lime green jelly finish with the black and white matte glitter. Sarah from Chalkboard Nails is the blogger behind this polish.

This is three coats of Pretty and Polished Crazy Circles. Crystal from Crystals Crazy Combos is the blogger behind this white holo polish with multicolored circles.  If you look close, you can see the subtle holo shimmer. Very pretty!


This is two coats of Queen You Dig It?. I absolutely adore this polish. A white based polish packed with colorful small sized glitter--you can't go wrong with that combo! This polish was inspired by Shipra from Taneja's Bride


This is two coats of Pretty and Polished Adventures in Polish Making. This polish is inspired by ME! I love simple polishes, and this is exactly that. Simple! I'm not a fan of oversized glitters and adore greys, purples, and blues. This polish fits my style! Chelsea hit the target when she made this polish.


This is two coats of Pretty and Polished New York City Lights. This polish is inspired by Carly from Lacquered Lover. This polish goes on smooth and has an unique appearance. My photo shows some visible nail line but not so much in person. It is packed with shimmer and sparkle giving a foil like appearance.

On my pointer, thumb, and pinky, I added two coats of ManGlaze ILF. On my middle and ring finger, I added two coats of Sally Hansen Celeb City. I stamped on the white lined design with Konad stamping polish in white and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-319. The yellow bows were stamped on with Konad stamping polish in yellow and Konad stamping plate M59. Photos show one coat of top coat.

I saw these nails on Pinterest, and I loved them! (Click here to see original) So of course, I had to recreate them.

The pale pink is two coats of Zoya Kennedy (pointer, pinky, and thumb). The middle finger is two coats of ManGlaze Mayonnaise. The chevron design was stamped on with Kleancolor black and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-201. My pointer is two coats of Sally Hansen Celeb City. I absolutely love that polish! It is an oldie in my collection, and I almost forgot about it. This polish will be used in a full mani soon!

I used one coat of China Glaze Bump & Grind on my ring finger, China Glaze Itty, Bitty & Gritty on my thumb, pinky, and pointer finger, and China Glaze Unrefined on my middle finger. For the design, I stamped as normal except I did not cover the image with one polish color. I did blobs of two colors (Konad stamping polish in light blue and yellow) before scraping. The image is a rose pattern (which is hard to make out) from DRK-A stamping plate.

This is one coat of China Glaze In The Rough. I stamped on the design with Konad stamping polishes in black and white and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-312. No top coat as this polish is from the texture line. I have noticed these textured polishes chip fast. It may be because I am only using one coat.

This is *one* coat of China Glaze Bump & Grind. I am in love with the textured look !!! I'm so glad I bought the entire collection. I stamped on the design with Konad stamping polish in a light blue and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-312. I stamped on the pattern in random places on the nail.
