Alphabet of Polish – G

Alright girlies! I know the posts have been sporadic and for that I apologize. I know it’s not an excuse but this schedule is killing me. Working overnights is hard. Real hard. I have been at least trying to make a post a week and I am definitely keeping up with y’all!! I love all the new posts, colors, and products I’m seeing!

So, I promised I would give you a view of my new hair color that my daughter picked out! I’m in love with it!!!

Arabella did my hair for work yesterday. I was totally stylin’ with that flower! Everyone at work loved it!!

Now on to my “G” polishes. The first one I did, I created around using Julep’s Ginger holographic sand polish that came in a recent Maven Box that was surrounding celebrity women. I fell in love with it and couldn’t wait to use it!! I paired it with a navy called Game On from Victoria’s Secret’s previous polish collection, the ones in the round bottle not the new rectangle ones.

I’m so in love with Ginger!! It is such a nice subtle holo!!! Can’t wait to wear it again!!

The second mani I did was slightly lame… It was close to St. Patrick’s day and I had forgotten that I could use color names and not just polish names for my alphabet!!! I decided on Grey and Green. I used Essence’s Grey-t to be Here and Sinful Colors Call Me Later, I got this one in our Secret Santa at work!

I was totally meh on this. I started with plain grey and Ashtree said it was too boring so I added little swirlies to them! It was fun, I guess.

I’ve got something exciting up my sleeve for “H”!!!! I mean like real exciting!!! You’ll have to come back to see!!!! (Is that a cliffhanger or what?!)

Final December nails

So I did 2 other mani’s that I haven’t had a chance to post. The whole month of December is insane for me. And now because of all the work and lack of sleep I feel like I’m coming down with something. I’ll just ignore it and hopefully it will go away.

On to what you came here for… The nails!!!

So I started with a Layla Holo polish… The silver one. Then I added my Christmas tree on my thumb. I used tape and then my dotting tool to add the star and the ornaments. I tried to do it on all of my nails but it wasn’t working out so I thought I’d try my hand at freehanding a snowflake. It is most definitely not my best work but it was ok.

This next one is what I ended up wearing for the days leading up to Christmas day. It was my second attempt at a jelly sandwich. I used 365 days of colors Mrs. Claus polish that I got in my mystery bag, I love it. Then on my accent nail I used Essie’s Sugar Daddy for my jelly and then I used a glitter polish I got from Claire’s. I think this turned out great!
