Natalie's Nails

I am sad :( i had to cut my nails down again because they were peeling so bad. I am hoping in the next month or so, the new healthy nails will be coming in so I wont have this issue anymore. In the meanwhile, I did not exactly feel like doing anything snazzy on my nails so i am going to do a post on the feature I have dubbed "Natalie's Nails". My daughter Natalie is 14 and she is my polish buddy :) She has some beautiful nails and she is also very talented at stamping! {I, sadly am NOT}. Today I am going to share one of her recent designs. This is Fresh Paint in Oatmeal, Konad Plate # m57 and Opi Black Onyx! enjoy! xoxoxo ~rach

Essie Fair Game w/ Midnight's Master On Top!

This is my second franken from the lovely and talented Laurie Nievin....this one is called Midnight's Master and it a beautiful black and holo glitter masterpiece! I put this over Essie Fair Game because I thought it would complement the blueish grey metallic color perfectly! I love these two together! I also really want to try it over just black! Thanks again Laurie...mwahhhh! xoxoxo

Natural Law~ A Franken by Laurie Nievin!!!!

so my lovely friend Laurie Nievin is a Frankening Master!!!! She offered to swap 2 of her lovely frankens for Illamasqua Baptiste. This is the first one, she dubbed "Natural Law" In my opinion, it's an absolute dupe for Essie's VVVHTF Starry Starry Night. Now, I don't have a bottle of the Essie to do a swatch comparison, but from what I have's a match! Thank-you Laurie for sharing this little Beauty with me...I adore it!

Pink Wednesday!

This is the first time {and maybe the last too!} that I did a mani for Pink Wednesday :) It's not that I don't like Pink it more like I want to wear it when I feel like it, not when I am "supposed" to LOL. These are two pretties I picked up from the Clearance section at Target the other day. Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Raspberry Race {base color} and Snappy Sprinkles {top coat} it was a very happy combo! xoxoxo

Sephora by OPI has a bunch of new colors, but I was only able to get this one...and boy am I glad I did! This is a gorgeous multi-colored glitter top coat. Similar to Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday but this one has more of the smaller glitter so i think it is even prettier!
