Nail Painting 101

I'm on YouTube?! That's right! I made an account a while back and after discovering that my video camera can actually work with my computer, I made a couple of videos. This is great! Now I can make all sorts of tutorials! And reviews! I updated my nail care video and it is also in my "Nail Care" tab now. I also did a "how to paint your nails" video, which was a quick video of how I do it. I'm not perfect, nor am I a licensed nail tech. This is just a little hobby I do. Anyway, here's my nail painting 101 video. Might try out some other videos later. Let me know if you have any requests!

China Glaze - Strawberry Fields

Making a dent in my "I haven't tried these polishes yet" list. I don't think I've worn this at all and I've had it for years! I think it was one of the first China Glazes that I purchased. I should really stop buying excess polishes and start using the ones I have before they all just go bad on me...but I see the fall collection popping up on eBay so I'm definitely getting that one - no way I'm missing it! I did see a sneak peak of the holiday collection and it was...eh. But I'll more than likely get it too...

Here is 3 coats of this lovely hot pink with gold flecks:


This is under a daylight bulb with my white balance set to "shade."




Sally Hansen - Lady Libra-ty

Apparently this color is incredibly difficult to find considering it is a CVS exclusive (I think?) for the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Beachside Astrologer collection. There is a shade for each zodiac sign and I picked up mine - Libra. I also picked up Sizzlin' Scorpio because my birthday is on the cusp where I could be considered either but my personality I think leans more Libra, but also incorporates Scorpio tendencies. Not that I'm super into astrology at all, I've just had the Libra/Scorpio debate for a long time because some places say October 23 is truly Libra or truly Scorpio so I said screw it, I'll be both.

Enough about that, view this luscious blue creme. It was the last one on the shelf display.

Two coats with top coat.

I hate how expensive these polishes are, $7.99?! Because they have 5 or 7 benefits or something?! I bought it anyway...
