glittery purple zebras... they exist, right?

Hi everyone! Did you miss me?
Can you believe I didn't post for the last three whole days?!
Life catches up to you sometimes. I had a lot of school work and other things taking up my time.

But never fear... I always return.

To make my comeback, I'm posting some great nails I rocked a few weeks ago!


Purple, glitter, zebra... it doesn't get much better.
This idea came from a friend asking me to do her nails and do whatever I wanted. Somehow I landed on this, and then as soon as she left I did the same thing on my nails!


This look starts with 2 coats of China Glaze - Flying Dragon and one coat of Nails Inc - Bloomsbury Square.
I forgot to take a picture of this on my left hand so you get a messy right hand picture. Look at that great application... It's not usually that bad, promise.

Nails Inc is a bit pricey, but good news! Wet N Wild just released an exact dupe of this awesome purple glitter. It's called Back Alley Deals and it is in the Ice Baby collection. You'll only be able to find it at Walgreens. (Lucky me, my friend Sarah from Chalkboard Nails scooped up the ones I wanted and sent them to me! I got them today. Look out for swatches soon.)


Then I added the silver stamping with Sally Hansen Insta Dri - Silver Sweep and Konad plate m57.
And then... a coat of China Glaze - Fairy Dust.
Add some Seche Vite and you're good to go.


I just love the super sparkly purple base with the tiny rainbow of Fairy Dust. And animal print makes everything better, right?


I love this last photo! Click it to enlarge it and see how deep the polish looks. I just love it.

So, sorry for being gone, but I hope you liked my return! I sure did.
And I promise I have lots of awesome coming up. And I mean lots.
(Eye Candy? Ice Baby? Scent-scous? Beyond The Mistletoe? Back to Boho? Pride? Oh my!)
