I wanted something special for summer. I painted my nails with “OPI Pink of Hearts” but when it dried the color was a bit light. I decided to add hot pink on the tips for a little pop. I wasn’t sure what type of tip I wanted to do but decided to go with a simple french since the color was strong enought to pop on its own. Here is what they look like, What do you think?

I went to CVS a few days ago to check out some flip flop sandals that came with 3 polishes, toe separators, and a file for $9.99. I wanted to purchase it for a friend for Christmas, yes I sad Christmas. I try to shop throughout the year when I see something for a good price. Oh, I almost forgot the rest of the story. The $9.99 flip flop set came with $4.00 in extra bucks, making them $5.99. While there I found this beautiful color, unlike any color I have…..and I have a lot of polish (one wall rack and an entire drawer full), it was Essie “In the Cab-ana”. This is the color I decided to wear this time. I also had water decals with Disney characters on them and I found some Henna design water decals in the shape of hearts that I put on my nails and toes. http://www.cvs.com/search/_/N-0?searchTerm=Essie+in+the+cabana&pt=global

It all started with white polish on my toes. I wanted to apply some decals but they did not show up so I changed my mind and added red crackle on top of the white polish. I used Orly French Tip in Pointe Blanche It was still a little too plain for me so I got out my gold stripe polish and added a little gold to them followed by a inm northern lights top coat.
Then I wanted something to go with my toes on my nails but to be a little different. I painted them Bath & Body Works “volcano” red polish. I cut out some Sally Hansen water decals on my nails in tribal patterns.

I am lucky enough to be one of the people who gets to test out some new makeup Neutrogena is going to promote. I can’t wait to test it out. I just received my package in the mail today after checking the mailbox all week for it. Yoohoo. Below is what I received in the mail. Product testing has it advantages.

Orly French Foil
I purchased the Orly French Manicure Cosmic FX kit on sale and thought I would try it out. Inside the package is a Top/Bottom Coat, Black – liquid vinyl, and Foil Color – Space Cadet. I use my own base coat called ” China Glaze Strong Adhesion”. This is the best base coat ever, in my opinion. I use it on my toes and the polish never chips and last as long as my acrylic nails and sometimes even longer. I can easily go 2 weeks without any problems.
On my toes I did the regular rounded design french pedicure and my nails I did the chevron. I decided to make it a little thicker than I normally do the chevron because I wanted the tip to show up nicely. When I finished I added a rhinestone in the center of the chevron on my nails. I just used a toothpick and dabbed some clear top coat where I wanted to place the rhinestone and then pushed the rhinestone in place. When it dried I top coated everything.
For my toes I decided to put three rhinestones on my big toe. I put one on each side and then one in the center. Same steps as above and top coated as well. The topcoat I use dries very quickly and lasts a long time. I use “out the door”.
