NOTD: Diamond Cosmetics Chainmail Charm

Diamond Cosmetics Chainmail Charm

This polish is absolutely gorgeous. And for a $2 nail polish, I'm in disbelief about how wonderfully it applies. I think Diamond Cosmetics may be one of my new favorite brands!

I first heard about this company from Brooke at Getcha Nails Did and I am so glad I took her advice and ordered.

My indoor pics don't quite capture the holo quality of the polish, but trust me, it's amazing in the sun. Brooke has some pictures that show it a little better.

This is two coats topped with SV. I'm on day 3 and I have hardly any tip wear BTW.

NOTD: Sephora by OPI Sample Sale

Sephora by OPI Sample Sale

Things have been so crazy recently, with the holidays and all, I haven't even photographed the last 3 manis I've done! I painted this holiday-ish color on the 23rd and am just now getting around to shooting it, and that's why you only get to see the pinkie nail! They will be getting repainted tonight.

Seriously, I haven't tried a Sephora by OPI shade I didn't like, and this was no exception. It was gorgeous and perfect for the holidays. I'm on day 4 and no chips in sight. I did lightly file the tips last night to remove some of the tip wear so that I could get one more day.

It's a Girls Night Out

Brooke from Getcha Nails Did and I met for wings and beer on Tuesday night and we had a fabulous time! I was in need of some "girl time" and chatting with a fellow nail polish addict really did the trick.

Brooke was so sweet and had a fabulous bag of goodies for me. I am dying to try the Finger Paints polish because I've never used that brand before and they are gorgeous!

Icy Iris, Candy Cane Shimmer, and Decked With Dazzle

Thanks again Brooke- can't wait to do it again when your RBL order comes in! :-)

NOTD: OPI Dreaming of Red

OPI Dreaming of Red (Ulta exclusive)

What a pretty red! Not all that unique, but still pretty. We all know Suzy loves her reds!

Slight tip wear, but I painted about 24 hours ago and remember I shuffle paper for a living. It's bound to happen!

NOTD: Sephora by OPI Worth My Weight

Sephora by OPI Worth My Weight

Holy cow, this is blingy! Three coats (which is rare for me, I always stop at two).

Regretfully, I think I'll be taking this off. I wanted to like it, I really did, but I just can't get over feeling like I'm too old and plain for this color.

Maybe for a party? But I've just got regular-old stuff to do over the next few days, and I'm afraid my nails might be overdressed!

NOTD: Zoya Harlow

Zoya Harlow

I am over-the-moon in love with this color. Gorgeous! I think the application on this matte was better than thre first three Zoya mattes I tried. The formula seems to be improved on a bit.

I did a coat of Orly Bonder and let it dry for 10 minutes and then applied two coats of color. Of course, they were dry almost immediately, which is one of the things I love about mattes.
