2013 Mani Round Up!

Happy New Year Eve Lovelies!! Who is excited for 2014? Hopefully you had a great year and if you didn't I hope 2014 is much better :D I personally enjoyed every part of 2013, main events in my life was my brothers engagement, New York family vacation, best friends wedding, and Grandparents 50th wedding anniversary.

Some recap on my blog for this year is I now have 441 GFC followers, and 845 Facebook likes. I also started an Instagram and have 88 followers. I won my first nail art contest and also hosted my own, I completed my first 31DC, three of my designs are featured on Bundle Monsters CYO plate set, and celebrated my year blogiversary last March. I am proud of how my photo quality has improved and I have learned alot of new techniques in 2013.

 Below I have my top 12 nail looks from 2013. I choose my favorite mani from each of the past month's, it was defiantly hard to narrow down I had many favorites from this year. Please click on the photo to be directed to original post.








I really hope you enjoyed all my mani's from this year and I look forward to continuing this blog for 2014! I would love to hear from you what mani of mine you loved the most, please comment below. Also I would love to see a mani of yours that you are most proud of this year :D I'll be back on the 2nd with my new year mani! Happy New Year!!!

Merry Christmas Eve, just one more day!! I have a quite simple design for today. Apologies for the bad picture quality, using my phone with a light box my brother made since I am at my parents. I was struggling with ideas for one last mani so I did this simple design.


 Zoya: Livingston and Hunter
Essie: Good as Gold


Sometimes less is more, right? Enjoy your last day finishing up any loose ends for your celebrations tomorrow!

Rudolph Reindeer Mani

Good Morning lovelies. Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was well till I got home Sunday night and had no power. If you hadn't heard in Michigan we got a huge ice storm Saturday night, it mostly hit Lansing area pretty hard leaving apx 60,000 of houses without power. We may not even get it back till end of the weekend, if that. I am lucky to be able to drive 30min west and stay at my parents, I feel bad for all those that have to celebrate Christmas without power.

On a happier note, Christmas is only 3 days away now. I still can't believe that it's already that time of year, 2013 really flew by for me. My mani today is in preparation of Santa coming, Rudolph is on my nails!


Zoya: Blaze, Louise and Taylor

Just last week I got the Holiday Collection from Bundle Monster and when I seen the reindeer stamp I knew I had to do this mani. Isn't it the cutest reindeer ever! I have two more Christmas Mani's to share with you than I will be gone till the new year!
Stay warm to those without power.

Happy Friday Lovelies!!! It's the last weekend before Christmas. Hope you have got your shopping done so you can now enjoy the Holiday's :D I really love my mani today it features the snow like China Glaze Texture.  I really debated getting this polish several times cause of the bad reviews but I am so happy I got it anyways.


 China Glaze: Theres Snow One Like You
Sinful Colors White on White
Wet n Wild: Break the Ice
Butter London: Pillar Box Red

I really had no problem with application for Theres Snow One Like You. You apply it like a glitter with one normal application than dab it on for your second coat. It is absolutely gorgeous also, so if you haven't gotten yours yet I HIGHLY suggest you grab it before its gone! 
Have a wonderful weekend!

Black, Tree and Presents

It is officially a week till Christmas! My mani today is a tad different then your cheerful red, green, and white Christmas mani. I recently bought one of the new Sally Hansen Suedes and really wanted to try it out so I decided to do a dark/black Christmas design.


Sally Hansen: Silver Sweep and Silk Onyx
Butter London: Matte Finish
Ulta: No named
Cheeky Jumbo 6
HD07 



I still incorporated a little red and green on my ring and middle finger with the ulta polishes. I also really enjoyed this Sally Hansen Suede, it has a gorgeous shimmer! 
How do you feel about this darker Christmas mani?

Funky Side-Swept Christmas French

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png
Morning lovelies. Today I am starting back up with some Christmas Designs and will keep going till Christmas Day! My look today was inspired by The Nail Network, she thought of this funky swept french design. Her mani is simply gorgeous so make sure to check it out!


 Essie: Good as Gold
RCM: Candid Moment



My approach to this design was to create lots of bling! That's why I choose to use gold and glequins :D I like how this design is a subtle but you can still tell it's Christmas inspiration.

Good Morning! Hope you all had a great weekend, mine was semi busy with family Christmas parties.
