Lazy 15 Challenge-Guilty Pleasure

Happy happy Friday to everybody!!!  Todays Lazy 15 challenge is guilty pleasure.  This was a tough one because I don't really feel guilty about the things I find pleasure in.  If I had to choose something though it would be nail polish!!!  This is the only thing I purchase on a more than need to basis!!!  I used too many polishes for this mani so I'm not going to list them...I'm just going to go to the final results!!!
 
 
 
I'm lovin this mani!!  It's fun!!  Now I'm off to check out everyone elses designs!!  Until next time...


12 Days of Christmas Challenge-Snowflakes

 Happy Friday everyone!!!  Today is another day for the 12 Days of Christmas challenge and today we have snowflakes!!!  I was super excited about this because I ordered some nail decals from Joby on their Cyber Monday sale, but then I figured I wouldn't get them before this challenge so I went ahead and did it on my own!!  After a few attempts this is what I came up with!!  For this mani I used
 
Models Own-Snow Me White
Kleancolors-Blue Pearl
Kiss Nail Art-White
 
Here are the polishes
 
And here are the results
 
Now I'll be the first to admit this is not my best work but I just couldn't figure out how to free hand snowflakes!!!  Hopefully all the other nail nuts had better luck!!!   Check out the other lovely ladies designs here!




 Until next time...
