Just Been Rollin’, Rollin’,

Rollin’ down the river. That’s a fun song I only know because of my parents. The whole point of the random song lyrics is to point out that I have been on a rolllll doing my nails lately. I adored the last shimmerfest that was my nails, and now I’m adoring another China Glaze </em gradient. These are my two favorite colors of all time, and the way they blend makes me drool. Just kidding. Not really. If I had to get a nail polish tattoo, I probably would go with something like this. Mmmmmm. These two polishes are Shower Together and Gothic Lolita. GL was a polish I saw bloggers drool over for about six months, and then when I got it on sale I completely understood the hype. The color, the consistency… Everything is perfect. ST is definitely my favorite blue, and of depending on my mood it could even be number one of all time out out my 170 bottles of jail polish. It’s just wonderful. Here, see for yourselves

You can drool with me. I won’t tell.

Math class. I hate math class. Enjoy my turquoise-gold pretty mani with a punch of Rawrr. Much better than inverse function and graphs

Seeing this made me feel great. 1000 views?  Thanks everyone ❤

This is brilliant. All of my nail polishes are in boxes because I had to store them when construction workers came. When I unpack them I’ll organize them too!

You know you’re an addict when your nail polish gets its own email address.
– observation from my sister after reading this post.

More times than I care to admit, I’ve returned home from the store with the exactsame polish I already own. It’s like I’m drawn to the same colors over and over again. There are some amazing polish stash spreadsheets out there (examples at the end of this post), but I wanted something I could easily manage with my iPhone…which my husband says I cradle in my hand while I’m sleeping. I seriously do not let go of that phone! So today, instead of a mani, I’m going to show you my system for Trackin’ the Stash. This may not be the best way, but it’s the way I do it.

This technique uses a Gmail Contacts List to store polish names and info. I can get…

Three Times The Triangle

Say that three times fast. 

Image

These were inspired by pinterest! Its two coats of Essie Funny Face. Then I used my small nail art brush to draw triangles in the middle with China Glaze Marry a Millionaire. Then I took my Finger Paints Black Expressionism and outlined the glitter triangle, and followed up with my lavender nameless Color Club. Finally, on my middle finger and thumb I Took China Glaze Devotion and did a fourth triangle, just to add some contrast. While the colors are bright, I feel like the overall look was very sophisticated. Muy Bueno!

sorry about the picks. I took the pictures the next day in order to get better lighting. I kinda picked them… ahah. What do you think?

More Marbles

My pretties. I actually did these before I did the ones on my nails. The idea was to post while I was at college orientation- I wrote down all the names and everything. But then I was smart and left them right on my desk. Bad Jessica. Here they are now though, still pretty as ever!

Image

Starting from the left, the red and pink one is Pure Ice Crimson and Color Club in pink.

The green is Sinful Colors San Francisco and N.Y.C. High Line Green.

Image

The yellow and orange is Color Club in yellow and Nina Ultra Pro Orange Flame.

Next we have Barielle Wool You Marry Me and O.P.I. Bling Dynasty. The Blues one is Sally Hansen The Sky’s The Limit and Orly Stone Cold.

Image

My purple is Orly Royal Velvet and Color Club in purple. Last but not least, we have my pink and yellow one. Both are from Color Club and I’m digging how in some spots it looks orange. A great combination if you ask me.

Up next we have more easter eggs! Yay easter eggs!
