I used XL plate "D" for the images: I used the bottom left image. My base color is China Glaze in Digital Dawn from the Tronica collection. It's a nice burnt orange holo, very pretty. I used Konad special polish in Black, which was probably a mistake. I didn't like the overall nail look...

Here's one of my favorite nail images. I love purple polish so I find Orly Rio Nights amazing. It is a jelly though so it took a few additional coats for me to get the opacity I wanted. I used one of my favorite image plates of late, the XL image plate D: I used China Glaze khrome polish in...

I used m69 image plate and Konad princess polish in Green. I added a small pearl in the middle of each nail as an accent. I really like this mani, one of my favorites. The holo is very distracting, it gets my attention every time. :D

using American Apparel nail lacquer in Cocoa. I wrote in a previous entry that American Apparel polishes are HG status for me because I love creme polishes, and these are mostly opaque in one coat, glides like a dream, and the colors are wonderful. Cocoa is a nice cool brown creme, very...

I applied one of my new China Glaze Crackle polishes over it, Fault Line, a bright orchid purple. Crackle is the new fad for 2011- the equivalent of the 2009 matte polish. I like Crackle/Shatter a lot better than mattes, honestly. What do you think? Is Crackle a yay or a nay?

I am just loving this polish called Riveting from the China Glaze Hunger Games Collection, otherwise known as Capitol Colours. It's the most vibrant out of the 12 polishes from that collection, but I think it's also the prettiest and most coveted. It's this fiery orange-coral with shimmer that...

As I had mentioned in a previous post, I was amazed to find an OMG collection from China Glaze tucked along with some really dusty collections on a top shelf in a beauty supply store, languishing all alone as it was the last one available. It was waiting for me all this time!! And I paid...

I really like this nail look. I am glad I was able to find base and top coats that make these kinds of nail looks last a pretty long time without chips (and no rhinestones falling off!). My favorite top coat is Gelous that you can get at Sally Nail Supply. It basically coats your nails with...

I opted swirls like this one, but I used a more subtle image color to almost blend with the background. I used my most favorite shade from the collection, Carey. It is a beautiful dove grey creme, so pretty for winter. For the image, I used China Glaze Sci-Fi which is a chrome polish, so...
