The Lacquer Ring – Vampy

The Lacquer Ring – Vampy




I know I’m super late for The Lacquer Ring post today, but I wasn’t in the mood to do my nails last night and then tonight I was having issues with my camera so it took me a long time to get it to work. The camera did not want to turn on and then it would shut off by itself. I think that it is finally time to get a new one. I’ve bought 2 cameras lately and returned both because they just didn’t work out for me. I use a point and shoot camera that was under $150 a couple of years ago so I’m not looking for anything crazy fancy or expensive. I have my eye on a Nikon that is $100 so I’m going to go check it out at Best Buy this weekend. I’m excited about going camera shopping! Today’s prompt is vampy, and I received the perfect polish today.

OPI Sleigh Parking Only 1OPI Sleigh Parking Only 2OPI Sleigh Parking Only is a new polish from the Gwen Stefani Holiday Collection. I am a little surprised by how much darker this polish looks on the nail. It’s a beautiful dark raisin polish with a great formula. I applied two coats for my swatches above and it covered perfectly. It dries incredibly shiny which you know I love when it comes to cremes.

OPI Snowflakes In The Air 1OPI Snowflakes In The Air 2I could not leave my mani nice and simple so I applied one coat of OPI Snowflakes In The Air. I adore this glitter and love how it pops against the dark base.

I am watching Grey’s Anatomy right now and am patiently waiting for Scandal. I love that show! I have a crapton of polishes to swatch this weekend, and I have no idea how I’m going to get through them all, but I’m going to give it my best shot. Aren’t you happy that tomorrow is Friday? I’m looking forward to the weekend laziness for sure. Don’t forget to check out the other manicures for today’s The Lacquer Ring posts. Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

Morgan Taylor New School Nude

Morgan Taylor New School Nude




How was your Sunday? I didn’t do anything exciting, but I did stop by my brother’s house to visit my little Peanut. He is so freaking adorable! I hadn’t seen him all week because my sister in law’s sister is visiting and she is babysitting him. I’m not a big Easter person but if you are, I hope you had a nice day with your friends and loved ones. I also wasn’t in the mood to do some cutesy Easter mani so I used a gorgeous nude that I bought a couple of weeks ago: Morgan Taylor New School Nude.

Morgan Taylor New School Nude 1Morgan Taylor New School Nude 2This is a gorgeous nude. It’s slightly beige and has a little bit of yellow in it. To be honest, I thought this was going to look hideous on me but I am quite liking it. If you haven’t used Morgan Taylor polishes before, this one is the usual creme perfection that I have come to expect from this brand. The polish was a tiny bit streaky so I ended up applying 3 coats, and it did not need top coat because it is beyond shiny on its own.

So I know that I mention work a lot and how much it stresses me out. I’m going to do my best to stop talking about work on here because my blog really is a sort of escape. At this point, I am physically sick from the stress so I know that something has to change. I hope that I don’t have to step away for the blog while I figure this out, but if my postings seem more sporadic, at least you will know why. Thanks so much for all the kind words and encouragement–they mean the world to me. I’ll talk to you soon…hopefully.

OPI Top This! Set – Holiday 2013

OPI Top This! Set – Holiday 2013




Are you excited that Friday is almost here? I am! I can’t wait for my Saturday even if I don’t have Sunday off. I really want to stay up tonight to watch Grey’s and Scandal (omg I love Scandal!!), but I think I’ll go to bed early so I don’t have to be a complete sleepy lunatic tomorrow morning. Today I want to share with you a really cute set of top coats from OPI. The OPI Top This! Set comes with two top coats and one awesome glitter topper. Let’s take a look at what I did with the three products.

OPI Top This! SetIsn’t the packaging pretty? What lacquerista wouldn’t want to get this as a gift?

OPI Top CoatSince I was totally in love with OPI Taylor Blue, I decided to use it here as well. The top coat is just your traditional top coat–nothing much to report here. It’s not a fast-dry top coat, but it gives your mani a beautiful shine.

OPI Matte Top CoatThe matte top coat makes OPI Taylor Blue look amazeballs. Seriously–how cool does this look mattified?

OPI Snowflakes In The AirAnd I’ve saved the best for last. OPI Snowflakes In The Air is such a delicate looking holographic top coat. It has various different sized silver holo glitters and I can see this making any mani look gorgeous.

I’m loving that these holiday sets are coming out so early because it gives us plenty of time to stock up. I’m definitely looking forward to playing with Snowflakes In The Air. What do you think? Is this something that you think would make a cute holiday gift? Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!
