Darling Diva - Sashay Away

Hello beautifuls,
I'm sorry for being such a slacker. I am working really hard on something these days! I swear! But it will take a little bit more time... :-(
So in the meantime, let me show you some really lovely polishes that I never got to show you before! And today it is Darling Diva's Sashay Away!
Darling Diva Sashay Away Lacquistry Amazeballs
Sashay Away is from Darling Diva's RuPaul inspired collection. It is a beautiful medium green holographic polish with blue shimmer. It has a perfect formula, its opaque in two easy peesy coats and has a very rich finish. It is very holographic but not in the linear way that looses all the base color to that rainbow. It is more of a scattered holo that I really love so much! In my words it is just super delicious.

I decided to match it with the one and only Amazeballs by Lacquistry. I think they really work nice together. Don't you agree?

Dior Day - Czarina Gold

I know, I know its been a while and I really need to come back more often. Eventually I will! But for now - here's a collaborate post. Some blogger friends of mine decided to get together and show our love for the polishes by Dior. And who am I to turn down such a fun idea? So let me show you Czarina Gold.

Cult Nails - Ay Poppy

This post was suppose to go up last night but I kind of... slept about it. (to say - I fell asleep and forgot to publish). Hopefully, late is better then never...
Anywho, remember a little while ago that I showed you some nail appliques made of 100% polish by Incoco? (here's the link) So I was doing some cleaning and I came across the remaining of those appliques. I had 3 or 4 left in my used package and I liked them too much to just throw away. So I cut them and played with them a little.

Sally Hansen - Blue Me Away!

Here's another mani from my vault, and this time it's truly a witchy stuff! If I would be giving names to manis, this one would probably be the sea witch.

Whimsical Ideas By Pam - Peanut Butter and Jelly

Today I have some really old swatch I found in my "somehow never posted" folder. I honestly have no idea why this never saw the light before, because it's such a sweet polish! Here's Peanut Butter and Jelly by Whimsical Ideas By Pam.

January Nail Art Theme Week: Follow a tutorial, day 5 - Giraffe

I saved my favorite post for last. Today is the last post of this month's Nail Art Theme Week, and the theme is Follow A Tutorial. The tutorial I chose to follow for today, just like the one from yesterday, is one by Jacki of Adventures In Acetone. It's one that I was dying to try for such a long time, but totally dreaded it wouldn't turn out as nice as it should... But guess what? I tried it - and it actually worked! Maybe not as perfect as the original, but it is definitely a cute mani!

January Nail Art Theme Week: Follow a tutorial, day 4 - Yeti

For today's post I followed an older tutorial by Jacki of Adventures In Acetone. However, last night she posted this adorably cute Yeti manicure with a tutorial, and I knew I just HAD to try it right away! Of course, I feel the same pretty much about every design Jacki comes up with. But the winter and the tutorial week context were just too strong to miss.

January Nail Art Theme Week: Follow a tutorial, day 3 - Kitties in love

Day 3 of the January Nail Art Theme Week begins with a bit of a drama.
I am sure you have heard by now the story of the nail art thief MissJenFabulous. If you want more details, I can recommend two written-from-the-heart posts. One by Sheila of Pointless Cafe and another by Lucie of Lucy's Stash. But I'm not really going into this now. Why am I mentioning this you ask? Well, here's my problem: I could not find the origin of the tutorial I followed today. I fruitlessly searched the web for hours and I am still in the dark. So if anyone knows the origin of this tutorial - please point me to it so I can give the artist credit!

January Nail Art Theme Week: Follow a tutorial, day 2 - Polka Dots

Good Evening beautifuls! 
Today for the second day of January's Nail Art Theme Week, I have a fun polka dots manicure, made by following "nuthin' but a nail thing" tutorial.

Edit to add: When I first found the tutorial to follow for this post, I completely forgot that I have already seen this nail art design before. Sadly, I was reminded of that today, by a sad, yet excellent post by Lucie at Lucy's stash.
Apparently this design, as well as others, were stolen from her by the notorious Miss Jen Fabulous for one of her YouTube tutorials.
I am not going to get into this issue now, except for urging you to read Lucy's post. But a credit should be given where it is due. And the credit for this beautiful design belongs to Lucie herself. And here is her original post.
