I have a little treat for you today, several manicures.. mostly nail art I’ve done over the past month or so that I’ve been meaning to share. Hopefully I’ll be able to upload some higher quality pictures another time, but for now cell phone pictures will have to do!
China Glaze Crushed Candy Crackle layered over China Glaze Swing Baby
What I call a “preppy” manicure, it made me feel very tennis-club-in-the-Hamptons. Used Essie Cute As A Button, Essie Mint Candy Apple, Essie Tart Deco and (unfortunately) an unknown Essie (the bright pink).
!!Toes alert!! Essie Mint Candy Apple bows outlined in Art Club black nail art polish, layered over Essie Cute As A Button!
I can’t find the nail art inspiration picture I interpreted for this manicure–but I used Justin Bieber for NOPI I’m A Belieber with white and black Art Club nail art polishes for the design.
I am so utterly obsessed with jelly polishes, and this color especially: OPI Big Hair, Big Nails from the Texas 2011 collection!
I can’t tell you how ecstatic I was when I found OPI Sparkle-icious at a salon nearby. I didn’t jump on them when they first came out because I was poorly, and I couldn’t pass it up again!
Nail art with Zoya Dove and some Art Club studs! Loved this one, so chic, so… Rihanna.
I recently bought wall shelves from Target to organize my polish collection. This is a shot of all my polishes as of May 23, not including my MAC polishes (which are stored on a MAC polish display next to my make-up).
Sea Spray is my favorite color from China Glaze’s new nautical Anchor’s Away collection. I am such a sucker for everything nautical, especially because my bestest friend is in the Coast Guard. I have to go back for a few more colors, but I knew I had to have this gorgeous grey-blue-sky cream as soon as I saw it. It’s the color of a pretty cloudy sky, a greyer tone but with a lot of blue. I love looking at my nails with this on.
If I were to speculate, even though I don’t own any other polish like it, I would guess that Eyeko‘s Rain Polish is a great dupe for Sea Spray.
Application with this polish was really perfect, and drying time was QUICK! This is two coats.

I will close comments on this post on December 21st at midnight, and announce the winner later that day!
A very small haul for me this time, just 2 products from each line. The palettes didn’t strike me as unique at all, so those were an easy pass. I’d like to get more of the Superslick Liners, though. They’re all gorgeous. I got:
Smoky Heir SuperSlick Liquid Liner
Last year I got every single color from the F/W Nail Trend collection. Jin Soi is amazing and has done it again–I’d love to have every single one of these. Due to circumstance, that’s not possible this year, but I did walk away with:
God, I love this color! It’s the first and only Color Club polish I own, and I know I have to have more. Revvvolution applies smoothly and thinly, and is opaque in just one coat. The color is a dark gunmetal grey filled with prismatic specks of glitter. In the sunlight, the colors of the rainbow appear on the pieces of glitter as you turn your finger. It’s gorgeous.
