China Glaze Chasing The Sun Ombre Kit

     Hey y'all, hope everyone had a great week!  Today I am showing y'all a *perfect* summer mani :)  This is an ombre I did with the China Glaze Chasing The Sun Ombre Kit, from Sally's.  I LOVE this kits because even if you don't like ombre, (which I had never been able to get right before these kits) you are still getting discounted polish! It's a win-win for me because now I love doing ombres too.  Also, since these are neon colors they dry matte & super fast, like by the time i did all 5 fingers the first finger was dry.  This kit also came with CG White on White but I just used it as my base since it tends to help neons pop a bit more and I wanted just neons in my ombre.

Mint Mani For Talia Joy

Talia Joy  was a thirteen year old girl who was battling two types of cancer, neuroblastoma and preleukemia. She was a very talented make up and nail artist as well.  She has appeared on the Ellen show and was also made an honorary CoverGirl.  She was an amazing inspiration to many people and tragically, she passed away Tuesday.

Her last picture on instagram was a mint green mani so Nail Polish Wars had the great idea for everyone to post their mint manis in memory of Talia.  This is a great idea, wonderful cause and everyone is invited to participate!

If you aren't a blogger, you can still post your manis on instagram, facebook, twitter etc. with the hashtag #mintmanisfortaliajoy and #taliaslegacy

I used 2 coats of China Glaze For Audrey, topped with 2 coats CG Fairy Dust.  My accent nail is one coat Pure Ice Silver Mercedes with 2 coats Love My Nails Milky Way.

Indoor with flash picture shows color best, but still not as green as in person.  Not sure why all my pictures leaned more blue.

Finger Paints Colorful Collage

This is one coat Pure Ice Silver Mercedes, with 2 coats Finger Paints Colorful Collage.  The accent nail is China Glaze Spontaneous, then CG Grape Pop, then CG Fairy dust.  The pictures on this aren't great because I didn't have time to take them until we were at a friend's house so the lighting was bad, sorry!

Also, apparently I'm pretty obsessed with Finger Paints Colorful Collage, this is the 3rd time I've worn it since I bought it less than 2 months ago.


No Flash, Crappy indoor lighting

OPI DS Extravagance

I have a new favorite in my collection today. I got this Monday and painted my nails as soon as I opened the box and I'm SO glad I did!  It's such an amazing color, its a dark magenta holo polish and I'm obsessed with it :)
