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.
