New Julep box! Boris & Nicole!

OMG, I love this color! I will just say that! I was not impressed with the picture they sent me in the email, but I stuck with it and SO glad! This is GORGEOUS! I didn't do a full mani because I loved this color so much it inspired this mani....and as you can see, it stamps well too!!!

Oh, and I also got a nice roll on cuticle oil and hand cream. The cuticle oil has a little ball applicator like the roll on lip glosses we all used in Junior high (and chewed the balls out of and popped them back in ALL the time!...I don't recommend putting it in your mouth!)

Funky Fingers - Favorite Girl

I wanted to do a post to this polish because I feel it doesn't get the attention deserved! I think it is over shadowed by Sand & Stilettos (which I do not deny is utterly amazing and my favorite FF polish!) However, I wanted to give Favorite Girl some well deserved attention!

I would describe this polish as a medium pink metallic. It has a great application quality and 2 coats is more than enough. To give you an example of just how easily this goes on, the mani below I did in the dark while watching a scary movie! And I have done NO cleanup on this mani! So enjoy the pics and f you don't have a Five Below store in your area, check my polish sale. I am more than willing to run to mine and pick some up for anyone, including internationals :)

Update...I added some pics of this polish with a Matte top coat, I used Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love. All the way at the bottom of this blog...

Sanderella compare...

Just a quick swatch compare, layer by layer, of Sanderella compared to some similar colors for miss Traci :) I'm sure this image is too big and won't fit my blog properly, but I feel like coloring outside the lines tonight :)

Julep Sneak peak box!

So I got my Julep sneak peek box today, if you don't know what that is, visit Traci's blog for more info! If you join, make sure and click through her link AND send her a quick email to let her know. They have been having 'glitches' with their referral program!

So I got the America Beauty box, aside from the two full size polishes I show below, I also got a full size glycerin hand scrub and a full size nail base coat!

First up, 'Cameron'...which I find interesting as it is PINK! Not sure how my step-son would feel about that!!

The first coat was *almost* enough to do it, but needed a second coat to do the trick. Smooth application aside from a stray hair, lol. No top coat in these pics.

Dry Water Marbeling

Ok, so I decided to try my hand at dry water marbeling seeing as regular water marbeling frustrates me so....

Here is the tutorial I first saw it in:

Crazy as a Capper for Sale! (MAAH Dupe)

Ok, I spent the evening working up some bottles of my Mad as a Hatter dupe. I'm exhausted and it looks like tinkerbell exploded in my dining room....

See pics below, if you are interested, email me RhonniAnaya @ or facebook. They are $10/bottle + $2 shipping. I hope that doesn't seem too high, but I used the good glitter (ie not cheap) and these are a pain to make!!!! I only have the 0.5 ounce bottles you see below made. If there is enough interest, I will go buy more supplies. I will ship internationally, you just have to pay the extra shipping (email me for rates).

Franken-stories: Episode 1....Must be Mad as a Hatter for trying....

So...I have a couple bottles of Mad as a Hatter so I really don't need to dup it....however my good friend Traci is so ga-ga over this polish, she wants a backup bottle. So while I am on the hunt for a backup bottle for her, I decide to try to dup it!!!

So here are some pics of my first glitter franken dup-ing attempt! I have to say, if the Mad Hatter were secure in his masculinity, he'd wear my's PINK!!!

Don't worry, Traci, now that I have created this one, I know what to do differently (I think) to make it not-pink....I might have a decent dup for you shortly!

I have named this 'Hatter's Got Style'

OPI DS Holos vs China Glaze OMG Holos

Not a lot to say tonight, had an epic day dusty hunting and these are just some of the spoils!!! I'm exhausted!! 

I did one hand in OPI DS and the other in China Glaze OMGs. What is noteworthy to point out is that it took 2 coats of OPI DS to look nice, most of the China Glaze went on in one, smooth, dark coat. Unfortunately the sun has set and I can't see these babies in the sun...I'm kinda worried about my drive to and from work tomorrow!!!!
