NOTD: OPI Sand in My Suit

Okie Dokie!  So I decided since I am not able to go to the beach (due to all this oil spill nonsense) I would bring the beach to me.  Through my nails haha.  So I went with a polish I recently received for my birthday, OPI Sand in My Suit.  I love it!!  It was a gorgeous color that made my hands and nails look amazing.  
So here it is!
I used three coats of Sand in My Suit for this manicure.  Along with NailTek Foundation II as a base and the Sally Hansen Insta Dry Top Coat.
So there ya go!  As I said this color was absolutely gorgeous and I recommended it to quite a few of my friends.  I hope you all enjoyed my NOTD and are having a wonderful day!

With Love,

Birthday Nails

Okay, so I am quite the girly girl.  And while I was pondering on what colors to use for my birthday nails, I asked myself what would Barbie wear for her birthday?  hahaha.  And this is what I came up with!

So, as you can all see, there is a fair amount of tip wear.  These pictures were actually taken today after a whole day of shopping and opening gifts and then a whole day at work.  Where I work, my hands are constantly wet and let's just say polishes do not stand a chance. 
 So for this manicure I used two coats of OPI Elephantastic Pink and two coats of NYC Shimmer polish.  I hope you all enjoy my Barbie Birthday Nails and please comment and let me know what you think.
Oh and sorry the picture quality is so poor all of my pictures are being taken on my iPhone until I can get a decent new digital camera.

With Love,

The Curse of Nail Biting

As of early April 2010, I quit a life time addiction with biting my nails.  Like really, it was bad, if they would have had a 12 step program I would have to sign up.  But anyways, I have always thoughts long, healthy, beautiful nails were just so classy, but could attain them myself.  So I began treating my nails the way they should be treated.  I have come up with my own simple nail care routine (which will be posted later).  So I hope everyone enjoys my blog and future posts. Please give as much feedback as possible,  I'd love to hear from all of you!
