Catching Up on Manis

woohoo! its Friday! i hope your week has been well! the weekend is JUST around the corner! -not that im doing anything fun over the weekend..just working. hopefully your weekend will be better than mine =P

time to catch you up on some manis of mine.

*click on the picture to see the full awesomeness! a link will automatically open up in a new screen.* 2 coats of OPI's My Private Jet. this one isnt the original-way-more-awesome holo one. this is the non-original-less-awesome holo one. =P and then i added some stars stickers.

*click on the picture to see the full awesomeness! a link will automatically open up in a new screen.* you can see more of the holo on my thumb. i had highhhh hopes for this one. its a beautiful polish, but i prefer Color Club's Revvvolution :)

here, i have 3 coats of Orly's Retro Red from their Plastix collection. besides for the bad picture, you can see finger indents & smudges on my nails. i painted my nails at midnight - like usual - and i didnt apply topcoat so that it can keep its satin-ish finish...and then i woke up with fugly nails =/ application of the polish was alright..and just to say, the picture shows the polish as RED..but when its on my nails, it looks more pink. weird, right?

next i have 3 coats of Essie's Van D'Go, which is the adorable peach-ish color, and 3 coats of Wet n Wild's Tropicalia. i sure do love my stripes & roses! haha

my nails had layers & then two of my nails i had to chop off my nails. so now i have little nubbins for nails =P

my first mani with short nails. something simple. 3 coats of Revlon's Silver & 3 coats of Sally Hansen's Black Out. and then my free-handed leopard print.

*click on the picture to see the full awesomeness! a link will automatically open up in a new screen.* this is 2 coats of Studio M's Magic Attraction. [Studio M is a brand from Meijer] this is an awesome, silver packed glitter polish with red-burgundy glitter and its also an awesome holo !!

*click on the picture to see the full awesomeness! a link will automatically open up in a new screen.* here's a picture in bad lighting but you can see the holo-awesomeness! this polish is closely following Revvvolution as my favorite holos! :)

again, all of those picturs were taken with my phone's camera. i usually take pictures of my nails when im on break at work - the lighting is so much better in my car! haha
