OPI The Show Must Go On, Silver Shatter

This mani has lasted a week. Well.. I had TSMGO on for 4 days (no chips) and added the shatter after then. I have one miniscule chip on the edge of one nail as of now. They are super nubs too. I love you OPI. I really do.

OPI DS Elegance

I think the DS series would be my stranded on a desert island polishes. They really float my boat.

I had the sad task this week of saying good bye to a sweet dear friend. Max was an amazing dog, I remember the day we got him so well. He grew up with my son (he says they were puppies together) and it's hard to know he is gone. Pickles is very quiet and keeps looking for him. It breaks my heart.

He tolerated such indignities!

He was hard to keep warm.

His life got even better when we found his BFF.

I'll miss you little guy.

OPI DS Original

Gah. This is so pretty!

And I found it at Winners for 6$!

That is cheaper then the supply place.

I also found DS Sapphire, but it was barfy on my tips so it's gonna be used for frankening.

Mmm.. rainbows!

Why don't the Goldie polishes have names?

I reckon it doesn't matter that much as long as they are as awesome as this.

Quite possibly THE girliest polish I have ever worn. EVER.

The ultra-violet sparkles KILL ME WITH AWESOME.

China Glaze Techno Teal

Wow, these Tronica colours are my new loves.

The holo may not be OMG crazy, but it is subtle and beautiful and I can't seem to get enough of them!

Again with my unwilling assistant Pickles. I think part of the reason I love these so much is the ease with which they go on and clean up. Does that make you love a polish too? I know it makes me shy away from glitters...

Happy weekend Possums!

China Glaze Electra Magenta

Oh the pretty! I initially bought a couple of the Tronic colours, but loved them so much I went back for MORE.

They are the easiest polishes to clean up and apply.. they are like magic!

They dry so quickly. I am in love. This is 2 coats of Electra Magenta. See the love?

My unwilling assistant was way not impressed. 

Who am I kidding.. he loves the attention. Pickles says Hola!

Sinful Daddy's Girl

Squishy purple jelly with sparkles.

Ultra-violet. Jelly. 

Did I mention jelly? YIKES!

I can't remember if this was 2 coats or 3, I think 3. Gah this is pretty!

Blurry with a purpose. I've bought a ton of new polish. Lots of Tronicas, some old ChG OMGs  and random other stuff. 

It is good to be back. I missed you all possums!

I'm baaaaaaaaaaack!

My computer is back from it's journey to Mississauga (and it got to go 2x! Lucky thing.) and I have even been taking pictures while it's been gone. I'll be posting as soon as I have all my stuff back up and running (and I really have to say Windows 7 makes this waaay easier than it used to be) and my pics sorted out. Thanks for your patience.

Just a little note to let any of the 4 of you who read this that I haven't fallen down the rabbit hole. I have however, had my computer crash, burn and die a terrible death resulting in the loss of all my pictures, data, e-books and knitting patterns. :( The good news? It's till under warranty, but I have to ship it away to get fixed. It was only 5 months old too.

I'll be back as soon as I have a new mani to show you. Right now I'm on day 5 of Essie Sew Psyched. Not a chip in sight! I'm working from a wee netbook so have to do some work arounds.

Have a gorgeous weekend.. and back up your data. LFMF.

Orly It's Not Rocket Science, OPI Black Shatter

I just wanted something easy and shiny and green. 

How I love this colour. Swampy, glittery all things good. 

But this? This is amazing. It looks like REAL ZOMBIE SKIN!!!!

I think I might love this stuff even more horizontally applied.

-I have a Horror Movie A Day Blog where I am trying to watch a horror movie everyday for 2011. I love me some horror movies!
-I eat the same thing for breakfast (and sometimes lunch) everyday. Plain yogurt with Holy Crap cereal and some vanilla bean paste and Splenda. I live on the edge I tell you.
-I have Fibromyalgia. It sucks. But I am really thankful it didn't come when my kiddo was young. I can't imagine having a little one feeling this shitty all the time. YIKES..
-I am religious about sunscreen. And moisturiser. I regularly get mistaken for 10 years younger than I am, because I HATE THE SUN. It burns us my precious.. well us pale ones anyways.

LA Girl Rock Star Punk

This is totally a hard colour to photograph. I had a hell of a time getting the beautiful purple flash to show up. This is outside not in full sun. 

Still in the shade, can you see the gorgeous?

Full on sun. This is 3 coats by the way. It was surprisingly sheer.

A hint of purple flash...

And you can kinda see it here in the tips of my nails.

Under my CF light. FINALLY. Purple flash achieved! 

Ahhhh.. that's better!
