Zombie Darlings Screaming Black Heart

Hello everyone!

Today's post is my first jelly polish.

Zombie Darlings Screaming Black Heart

I met Cindy on Instagram, Zombie Darlings, you should follow her she is awesome.  She is in the process of moving her store to Big Carlel, I believe she will have some new polishes up soon.  Her store is

This is a beautiful black jelly base with multi-colored and different size and shaped glitter.  These pics are 3 coats with no undies and Seche Vite topcoat.

This polish is fantastic.  The formula is amazing and perfect.  The glitter is dispersed evenly throughout the polish and there is no need to fish the glitter out of the bottle.  Application is PERFECT, and I barely had cleanup.

I can't wait to try more Zombie Darlings.

My very first Gradient

So I promised more activity blog posts and I will definitely be doing more.  So I apologize if I blow up your blog feed with posts.

I have spent countless hours looking at pics of gradients and videos on how to do them.  I bought makeup sponges a few months ago, and was to afraid to try one, because I assumed I would fail miserably.

I mentioned wanting to do a gradient for a friend and she told me I should and a few on Twitter told me I should try as well.  So I gave it a go.

I used the following colors:

butter London Dodgy Barnett
OPI On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Sally Hansen Navy Baby

The used the method where you pant a thin coat of the lightest color on your nails, and then I painted my colors on a makeup sponge and then dabbed the colors onto my nails.

Since I don't have any self control I added NYC Matte Me Crazy, and OMG I love it!

Then I needed to add Black Cat Lacquer Love Will Tear Us Apart.

Overall, I am very proud of how well my gradient turned out and all of my additions to it seemed to work pretty well!

What do you think?

Bondi New York Brick Road

What's up everyone?

I hope everyone is doing great!  I have my first yellow polish that I want to share with you. It is from Bondi New York and is called Brick Road.  Please note that this product was sent to me for an honest review.

You can find their polishes on their website,

Their brand is 5 free and non-toxic.  They recently launched their brand with 20 pretty awesome colors.  Bondi also donates profits each bottle sold to charity.

Brick Road is a bright yellow cream polish.  This is the first yellow polish that I have worn.  I really like it!  The name totally fits because it reminds me of the Yellow Brick Road from the Wizard of Oz. This is 3 coats and a coat of Seche Vite.  I think this would look great with 2 coats but I wanted to make sure that I had full coverage. 

The formula is fantastic and applies very well.  Clean up is extremely easy as well.  I think this color makes my nail beds look slimmer.

Bondi did an amazing job on their start up selections, I almost couldn't choose just one.  I wanted like 4-5 of the colors.

I don't really have anything negative to say about this polish. I can't wait to add more to my stash!

This is a Tribute....

Hello everyone.

Today I am posting a mani dedicated to the memory of my friend Amada's mother.  Most of you may have seen a few posts mentioning Amanda - The Nail Polish Enthusiast

Amanda lost her mother 10 years ago, and you can learn more about the tribute HERE

I haven't known Amanda very long, but I can say she is an amazing woman, and I think her mother would be so proud of the woman that she is.  Without further delay.

Pink reminds me of tulips, which was Amanda's mom's favorite flower.

I am wearing China Glaze Naked since it is a very pink shimmery polish.

Kitchen Sink Saturday #3

Hello!  How is everyone today?

Today is the third installment of #kitchensinksaturday.

For the 4 Saturdays in January, a few of us are going kitchen sink manis.

Amanda The Nail Polish Enthusiast
Inky Inky Whiskers Musings
Nicole Young Wild and Polished
Sarah Swishienails 
and myself

Kitchen sink saturday, was my day today, I had so much to do...  get some food, change my oil, organize my nail desk.  I now have a nail desk.  A few months ago if you would have told me that I would have a nail desk and about 180 polishes before February, I probably would have laughed at you....  Now, not so much.  I need a helmer or a melmer and I am doing swaps, and buying tons of nail polish.  I guess you could say like a good little nail polish addict?!? 

I am really trying to make myself blog more.  I think having the desk will make it so.  I will be getting a light box soon too, so my pics wont suck as much. 


My thumb isn't shown because I was having lots of issues today.  I haven't been moisturizing as much as I should nor using my cuticle oil as much either.....  BAD!  I know.  I apologize for the horrible looking nails too.  I had a few breaks this week to so I had to file them down.

Pointer = KB Shimmer News Print

Middle = Santee Nail Polish Beach Blue with J.Indie Nails G code on top

Ring = China Glaze Naked with Ulta quake top coat (crackle)

Pinkie = Santee Nail Polish Aqua with Glimmer by Erica Beneath the Blue

Please check out the other manis in the group, I promise they are better than mine.
