This is a matte polish (called Crawfish Boil) I made as part of my Louisiana Hospitality Collection! This is two coats and of course no top coat. 


The photo below shows the Nail-Venturous Crawfish Boil with a shiny top coat over the ring and pointer finger. 


I stamped on a nail design with Kleancolor Metallic Red and Konad Stamping Plate M70.




Here is another one of my frankens from my Louisiana Hospitality Collection called Southern Belle!!!!  You can see it as one coat by itself, over light blue, over dark blue, and over black.

This is two coats of Pretty and Polished Power House. This polish is so pretty, and it is my kind of polish. It is the perfect jelly sandwich without all the layering... Application was flawless and the glitter pieces came out of the bottle so easily and in the perfect amount!

Then I stamped on some roses (which I could not photograph very well. They look blurry in the photo but that is because of the reflection of the top coat) with Kleancolor metallic purple and Konad Stamping Plate M65.

This is two coats of the gorgeous Glitter Gal Lizard Belly with no top coat.



I saw a similar nail design by Linda over at Copy That Copy Cat, and of course I decided to copy it! Hers looks better... I should have copied it exactly, but I thought I would try to put my own touch on it. And I don't really like the finished manicure. I like hers WAY better! 

I used Red Angel stamping plate RA-11 and Ulta Quick Silver to stamp on the pattern. Then I used a dotting tool, Kleancolor Fashionista, OPI Mermaid Tears, and Orly Pure Porcelain to add in some more detail.

This is two coats of China Glaze IDK with no top coat. SO amazing!



Then I stamped on some little hearts with Kleancolor Metallic Purple and Red Angel stamping plates RA-110 and RA-114. 

This has to be one of my favorite manicures and was made with someone special in mind! 




Born Pretty Store Review

Today I have a Born Pretty Store review for you! This is two coats of Shiny Violet Shimmer Nail Polish Glitter Nail Art #11. It is a very lovely polish, and application was wonderful. It dried quickly. The second photo is more color accurate. This polish is NOT good for stamping. 



Then I added one coat of Born Pretty Crystal Purple Pink #63 Nail Polish. In my opinion, this polish is pretty once you get it applied to your nail, but it was a tiny bit of a struggle to get the glitter out (not even enough to really complain about, but enough to mention). It is a holo glitter that changes between pink and purple depending on how the light hits it. It is awesome!

Nail-Venturous Nail Lacquers + a giveaway!

Wow! I am so pleased to hear all the positive reactions to my three frankens I posted on Friday. After much thought, it is clear to me I am not ready to sale polishes through my blog or Etsy. I feel that it would be very time consuming and overwhelming to have to make so many polishes and process orders. My true passion is trying new polishes, doing nail designs, commenting/reading others blogs and BLOGGING! I worry that selling through my blog and/or Etsy will be too time consuming and take the fun out of it --turning it into a job. I would hate to lose all my free time and not be able to enjoy doing my nails and sharing that with you. I have already noticed that I haven't had time to read other's blogs and I hate that. Maybe in the future,  I will sale, but for now I want to enjoy what I love. I hope you understand!

To make up for my indecisiveness, I am pleased to be giving away three bottles of EACH polish. So that is a total of NINE winners. All you have to do is comment to this post with your favorite and your email address! Giveaway ends Feb 5, 2012

United States and Canada Shipping only. 

Nail polish is considered hazardous materials and are required to be shipped by ground-only transport due to air transport restrictions and regulations placed by the United States Postal Service.


As I show you my future polish creations, I will be giving some of those away too!

Here are the three polishes again!

Pinkerbell


Orange you Unique!??!

And Floam!

I am excited about today's post because I thought I would share three of my franken polishes with you.

 I hope you enjoy! Feedback negative and/or positive are welcome!




This is two coats of Nail-venturous Nail Lacquers Orange You Unique?!! with one coat of top coat.

Orange You Unique has matte bright blue, light yellow, and light orange fine glitter in an orange-peachy base. It has complete coverage in two coats. With topcoat or gelous, Orange You Unique can have a shiny finish. However, this polish dries with a matte finish, and the glitter itself does not sparkle. Please remember that some colors might be off a hue or two depending on camera and monitor settings.




This is two coats of Nail-venturous Nail Lacquers Floam with one coat of top coat. 

Floam has matte neon blue and yellow-green fine glitter a clear base. It has complete coverage in two to three coats and can be used as a layering polish with one coat. With topcoat or gelous, Floam can have a shiny finish. However, this polish dries with a matte finish, and the glitter itself does not sparkle. Please remember that some colors might be off a hue or two depending on camera and monitor settings.


A special thank you to my polish friend, Rhonni, for helping me name this one!






This is two coats of Nail-venturous Nail Lacquers Pinkerbell with one coat of top coat. Please excuse my red cuticles. I have been swatching many polishes lately... 

Pinkerbell has matte blue and yellow fine glitter and bright pink ultra fine glitter in a clear base. It has complete coverage in two coats and can be used as a layering polish with one coat. With topcoat or gelous, Pinkerbell can have a shiny finish. However, this polish dries with a matte finish, and the glitter itself does not sparkle. Please remember that some colors might be off a hue or two depending on camera and monitor settings.
