Be safe and live life in color!!

My Icon Photo

I love Zoya Mitzi! A matte ultra bright neon. I feel it catches the eye and I don't see me changing it as my icon photo anytime soon. I love it that much :0)

Dotty Owl's

Whoooo doesn't love owls. I sure do. This manicure was created using Zoya Shelby and Reagan!

Sugar Skulls

From a Sugar Skull Sweet Contest hosted by Pretty Face Happy Bank...AKA Cosmetish. I was one of the winners!


Fun and Funky using Zoya Wednesday and Trixie!

Cinderella likes Jelly Sandwiches too!

I love this combo. To this day it is the top manicure "searched" on my blog. This is using Sinful Colors Cinderella and OPI Techno.


My family was very excited for the release of the new Avengers movie this year. I went all out with a manicure to match! 

Sweet and Simple

FingerPaints Tiffany Imposter and China Glaze Techno.

Pink Love!

Stumbled upon a fabulous combination this day. Used Zoya Lara and Kleancolor Holo Pink to top her off!

The Black Knight

One of the first polishes I was lemming for the longest time. My very amazing husband surprised me with this baby one afternoon. I love this polish to pieces!!!


I love animal print!!! Using OPI Feeling Hot Hot Hot and Alpine Snow. This manicure also marks the first time I went round with my nails. It's cute although I prefer squarley rounded!


With a huge accomplishment for me this year. I have officially graduated Nail Technology Schooling. This is a manicure that I am VERY proud of!

This client had super nubbins. I then sculptured her a long natural beautiful nail using Creative Nail Design (CND) clear sculpting powder. I then polished her nails a vibrant red using Nailtiques Red Moscow and added an accent of leopard print! What made me most proud was my teacher's (Ms. Jimi Bean) appraise as well as my clients!!

I hope you enjoyed looking back at my favorites this year as much as I did. Thank you to each and every 890 subscribed readers. Here's to 890 more!!

Naild'it Unique Nail Polish Rudolf Knows and No Elfing Way Swatch and Review

Today's review if from an amazingly unique polish creating artist Naild'it Unique Nail Polish.

Rudolf Knows and No Elfing Way are part of Naild'it Unique Nail Polishes Winter/Holiday Collection. This is my first experience with this maker and I am very honored to review these two beauties.

First up, Rudolf Knows: A red jelly with a great consistency. Rudolf Knows is filled with red and holographic hex shaped glitter. This is a magical polish. Some turns of the hand give the holographic spark a pink to purple and blue to green glimmer. I could spin my hand for hours. Fun and quirky name.  Very fitting for this polish. The wear was great and I wore this color for 3 days free of any chipping. I only took it off to review Naild'it Unique Nail Polish's 2nd polish sent for review!

Here is Rudolf Knows in 3 thin coats with top coat.

Blur to show sparkle!

No Elfing Way: A clear based polish, No Elfing Way!!!!! The clear base shocked me. With this polish packed with different shapes and sizes of glitter, I was happily surprised. From green crescents, purple, pink, red  hex and squares. So much fun is No Elfing Way. Can me worn alone or on top of a colored polish to add Christmas spunk. Can be worn as a jelly sandwich aswell. The possibilities are endless!
