Disney Nail Polish Ocean Mist

Yup, I went to Disneyland and bought nail polish!!!  I couldn't believe all the things you could buy at Disneyland!  The one I'm going to show you today is Ocean Mist.  The color is a soft green with yellow sparkles.  This polish wasn't as opaque it took three coats to get full coverage.

Well I couldn't stand having nails with just polish on them anymore.  So I added some yellow dots!  Orly's "Hook Up".  Still I love the sparkle of this polish.  The color is green with hints of yellow.  I would of liked more blue (only because of the name)  but I don't have anything like it in my stash.  So I'm completely happy with it.

Because March has been so busy I haven't been keeping up with my relaxed 31 day challenge.  So tomorrow I wade back into the challenge... with my nemesis water marble.  My darling friend WhiteRaven is wonderful at it.  So I'm going to call her up and beg for help.  ; )

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Disney Nail polish

I got two polishes while I was at Disneyland!  Who knew that you could buy polish from Mickey Mouse!  I was surprised and to be honest I couldn't get to the cash register fast enough.  Today I'm going to show you the first one I picked.  It's a beautiful dark purple color called "Diva of the Deep".  I really love this polish. 

This is one coat and it went on wonderfully.  My nails and cuticles are in rather rough conditions after a week long vacation.  It's going to take me at least a week to get them back to looking decent. 

Disney has put together a lovely polish here, it's opaque in one coat.  It's a deep grape creme with a very slight purple shimmer to it.  Tomorrow I'll show you the second polish I got called "Ocean Mist" 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

I'm Back!

I know it's been a while since you've all heard from me.  First I had a death in the family, then I had the crud and then I got to go to Disneyland in California.  March has been crazy already!  But I'm back home and I've missed you all!

Tomorrow I'll swatch two nail polishes I picked up in Disneyland!  Did you know that Disney had a cosmetic line?  It came as news to me!  Of course if there is a nail polish you can trust me to find it!  I was holding a bottle and grinning ear to ear when my husband said "Only you would come to Disneyland and buy nail polish."  A young man next to him laughed and pointed to his wife and said "I just said that to her!"  Nail nerds, we're everywhere!

I'll see you tomorrow

Day 9 of the 31 challenge

Hello my reader!  I've decided to toss my dubious nail art talents out there and join The Crumpet in her next awesome Laid Back 31 DC.  I love following these challenges because it shows me a lot of wonderful art, introduces me to a ton of great blogs and gives me inspiration to perfect my manicures.

The prompt for the day is the saran wrap technique.   I've never tried this technique before.  I really like it.  It gives an interesting texture and look.  I used Orly "Luxe" and OPI "Ink".  The gold and purple really looked good together.  They are two of my favorite polishes.  I never really expected to like a gold polish as much as I like Luxe.

I think I'll play with it a little more and see if a tighter ball will give me more of the cool crinkles looks.
