Essie - Lots of Lux

Hello everyone!

As I try to get back into the nail game, I have a few old manis that I did over the past months that I will be posting.

Today is Essie - Lots of Lux from the Holiday 2013 Encrusted Treasures collection. This is definitely my favorite blue texture polish as of now! It has specks of green and gold and is just gorgeous.

Long time no post.. and Star Nails!

So it has been months and months since my last post, life sort of took over and I found myself not having the time to blog. I've been busy with school, work, and trying to have a social life. Of course, I still do my nails at least once week to keep my sanity! I have quite a few pictures to share that I have taken, a lot of them are on my instagram already - @ccsacs - where I always post my manis, along with random other happy stuff. I hope to start blogging again, at least for the summer.

For now, here are some star nails I did using Nail Vinyls. These are much easier to use than regular tape! She has tons of designs and even some cute decals. The base color is It's Up to Blue - Orly.

Thanks for reading!

Despicable Me 2 Minions

Hello everyone!

I finally gave in and created some Minions from Despicable Me 2 on my nails! They're too cute to NOT do!

For the base yellow color I used Finger Paints - Lemon Sour and the rest of the colors for the minions are acrylic paints. I'm super proud at how they came out. These particular faces were inspired from GabyNailArt on YouTube!

Random Swatches (1)

Hello everyone,

I know I haven't posted anything in awhile but I am going to be making a bigger effort to get this blog going again. I have only been doing my nails about once a week which is a lot less than I used to, and I am not too happy about it SO it's time for a change!!

Today I have a few random manicures that I've worn. I'm splitting them into two posts so here is part 1!

Essie - Bikini So Teeny

China Glaze - Surfin' for Boys

All That Glitters - Cool Yule 

Fourth of July Mani: base of OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls with red and blue glitters sandwiched with Essie - Marshmellow

Essie - No More Film & Flakie

Hello everyone,

Today I'm sharing a mani from two or so weeks ago. It was inspired by a mani that ThePolishaholic did - Flakie Tips. I decided to use Essie - No More Film as the darker color and sponged Essie - Shine of the Times on the tips! I LOVE this look!

My nails are pretty long here (long for ME anyways haha), which is another reason I think this mani came out well.

OPI - Pussy Galore & Stamping


Long time no post, I have been oddly really busy! I recently started a new job and some other things have come up.. but I'm excited to show you some nails I had.

I really didn't plan on buying anymore liquid sands from OPI but I felt compelled to get Pussy Galore from the Bond Girls collection.

It's a nice soft pink, though! This was two coats.

After a day of wearing it, I decided I needed to add some stamping with BM 322. I haven't stamped in quite awhile so it was a nice change. I bought an XL stamper but I can't seem to use it correctly, it seems too squishy?
