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.

The base color is two coats of ManGlaze Mayonnaise. I stamped on the two designs with Konad stamping polish in one of their blue shades and Bundle Monster stamping plate BM-212. I added the extra detail with a dotting tool, Konad stamping polish in yellow, and Kleancolor Metallic Fuchsia. I added one coat of top coat.

Girly Bits Swatches

Hello everyone! Tonight, I have some Girl Bits swatches for you... I'm hating the quality of my photos lately. I usually take my photos underneath my desk. The lighting worked well, and I was at the point where I was generally happy with my photos. I haven't been able to take photos there for a while (8 months pregnant now and bending at the waist to fit under the desk is near impossible). I am still trying to find a new location and lighting to get good photos. So bare with me. Okay enough complaining... =) 

First up is Girly Bits Hot Shot. This is two coats. I really love the subtle pink and holo combo. It is super girly!


This is three coats of Girly Bits Twitterpated, an awesome purple holo!


Next up is two coats of Girly Bits Erin Go Bragh-less over two coats of Catrice No Snow Petrol. This polish is super funky (in a good way)! It has a neon (in my opinion) green base loaded with green and gold glitter. My camera had a hard time focusing on this one (as well as the polish in the last photo), but the photo gives you the general idea of how it looks.


This is two coats of Girly Bits A Mother's Love over two coats of Girly Bits Hot Shot.
