My Lemmings (are out of control)

So. You know that time when you look at your lemming list and think, "Damn.... I'm never getting ANY of these....." Ya. I get that feeling a lot. The sad part is not all of my lemmings are all that expensive- a lot of the times I really just want ONE polish from a brand. *sigh* I have a 1,000 polish taste on a 300 polish budget.... though that isn't even right because I buy like.... 3 polishes a month. Anyways, that confusing sentence behind us, let's get to the list. I'm sorry I don't have pictures, but after all..... they're lemmings for a reason. :/

Individual Polishes:
*FLOAM!!!!! omg yes I need Nailventurous Floam. Like.... Number 1 lemming here.
Sally Hansen Opulent Cloud.... just.... ya. It's magical to me.
*Clarin's 230. You had to know that'd be on here. I NEEDZ DA UNICORN PEE!
Nfu-oh 61/ Gosh Holographic- I just needz those perfections- I mean, they are THE holographic silvers.
OPI My Private Jet- The good holo one. I will settle for no less. (even though I have the less...)
*OPI Midnight Blue Glitter. Just ughh sssssooooo purty. This is probably the most attainable of my lemmings
OPI Sanderella/ You Mica Me Blush! It's holo-ey goodness. Why wouldn't I want them?
Sally Hansen Turquoise Opal.... Is there anyone who doesn't want this polish?
*OPI Blue Lagoon- It's just beautiful. That is all.
Cult Nails Clairvoyant- see explanation above. ^
Rimmel London Mania. Just mmmmmmm

Now there are some things out there where I just want me some of 'dat. In other words, these are brands I just flat out want something, ANYTHING from. Just to say I have it :D

The Ozotics. The fact that they effin discontinued ALL the good ones makes me so upset. But I has need.
Cult Nails. I don't think I've disliked any of their polishes- sure I have favorites, but I likes 'em all!
Deborah Lippmann- I may have one, but now I want more :/
Nfu-oh. Flakies and Holos and Aqua Base Oh my!
Catrice polishes seem pretty legit.....
Chanel. Just to say I have something Chanel.
Illamasqua- Have you seen their colors??? Bacterium? Yus please!
Butter London- Again, I have 2 already, but those Lippy sets? and omg some of those gorgeous colors.... yes.
Nars polish- Again, just to say I have Nars.
The CND Nail Effects, Because duo-chromes and glass flecks are where it's at.
Nailventurous. Just because all of her creations are perfect.
And really any unique Etsy brands. I like the idea of a custom made polish just for me :)

So those are me lemmings! And just to throw it out there, if ANY of you guys have these and wouldn't mind being awesome, leave a comment so we ca work out a swap!! PLZZ I WILLLOVE YOU FOREVERS!!!

Luv ya'll!

Hair Shall Be Choppethed!

Hi guys! So this is my "before" post of my hair: I'm getting a haircut, and I wanted to document my hair length and give some hair tips while I'm at it. Is this nails related? Ermmmm no. But change is refreshing isn't it?

Ignore my ugly face in the first pic lol xP no makeup...... anywhos, this is the length. to my chest in the front, and mid back. I straightened it for this picture, but it rarely cooperates with me.... gahh curse my thick hair!!!! Literally I straighten it in 6 layers. Gosh I guess we always want a hair type we can't have :p

So ya! This is it. To those who were wondering, I got my hair dyed a while ago (maybe 3-4 months?) to a dark brown... this has started to wear off a bit, but my hair on the left in the first picture shows what it normally looks like- sorta a medium toned brown. I normally just get trims, I think the last time I got a new style was like 6th grade ;D But back then I didn't have the motivation to actually do my hair every morning. So this shall be different!!! But... I'm not telling you what I'm doing! Take yur bets! Make yur guesses! Because I'm not getting it done until this Saturday :p At least you guys get to see the pic once I get the cut- I'm not posting any pictures on Facebook because it's a surprise for my best friend..... She doesn't even know i'm changing my hair!

Also, she didn't recognize me at all when I got it 2 shades darker... this should be interesting >:D

Luv y'all!

Opal Nails FTW!

Long time no post guys! I have final exams quickly approaching..... blahhhhh Chem needs to leave my life. Anyways ;D So as many of you may recall, I can NOT deal with my nails being A) not glittery B) too subtle. I mean it's just one of my things- boring nails make me wanna rip the polish off! Which is sad... seeing as boring nails don't include glitter, they're WAYY easier to remove than fun nails... But I digress :D

So lately quite a few bloggers have raved about white polishes, (namely the OPI NYC Ballet collection) and I always sit there saying, "how can they love this?!?! It's just so boring!"

The other night though, I was watching Youtube vids (as expected....) and decided I wanted to franken a sheeeeeeer white polish for french manis. Basically I decanted out a whole bottle of white (I just used it to refill another white) and added clear to the white left on the sides of the bottle. It was deliciously milky and jellyish :D I'm in love to say the least- no VNL in two coats! I was inspired to add flakie goodness :) Enter Essie "Shine of the Times." Instant opals!

These were artificial light. Gah I love these....

Sunlight pics! Hells YES! It's finally nice out here :D Summer here I come!

So in conclusion: I give you verry purty, very long post ;D Hope ya likes, and I really hope you guys try this out!!!

Luv y'all!

Well Hello There Ombre!

I like a good ombre.... I also like a creme mani that doesn't bore me! Simply because it's easy to remove.... So I get to change my mind whenever :D

So I'm sure you'll recognize this.... use whatever technique you like for the look! For this I used Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau and the light blue, and Sally Hansen Pacific Blue as the dark part. I think it looks nice and springy and light :)

Like a nice summer sky :D

Sorry for the short post... I guess there's not too much to say on this one ;P OH! Just so y'all know, I have an.... interesting idea for a texture mani coming up! I seriously can't wait. Once I can get to Michael's I'll put up the post!! Yaaaay!

Luv y'all!

Gaaaaaaahhhhh Layering Blahswjfheiuwaalferiaoawesomeness

I just want to begin saying that I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally love this. Like a lot. I literally put this on about 3 minutes ago and took pics to post about immediately. I love it so much I made a franken bottle of this so I wouldn't forget the combo if I wanted to do it again. LUUUUUUV!

Here's what it started as: Wet n' Wild Black Creme and Icing Tiger's Blood:

Nice enough..... But far too Halloween-ey for me. Tiger's Blood is a sheer orange base with white, orange, and iridescent glitter. But those iridescents a few and far between, so it looks mostly like orange and white over black. So I added a Mylar flakie- basically OPI I Lily Love You, but the Forever 21 version. As with most F21 polishes, it doesn't really have a name- the label just says "pink". They couldn't be more wrong.

After the Mylarness, I looked at it..... and it was still all orangey! CURSES!!! Even though I had added a pinkiness, it was still Halloween! Gahhhd! But then, I thought, "Hey, maybe if I add a cooler-toned glitter it'll balance it out." So I added a no-name green glitter polish that came from a CVS Christmas tube thingy.

Dear brain:
I luv joo and yur rendom idears. Dey iz beeyootiful.

Just..... Gahh! I do love! I do!

These pictures seriously do not capture it's awesomeness. I tried, I really did.... I just don't think I was able to get a good lighting situation: 'tis dreary and sad here :(

Well that's all for today loves! Or is it..... >:D

Luv y'all!

My Nail Polishes!

Okay. I'm slightly scared to write this post. While I know about 70% of the rest of the nail bloggers out there obviously have more polish than I do, it still kinda makes me guilty to see/ count all my polishes together. Is it enough to make me stop buying polishes? Well hell no but I digress ;)

 Here they are.... All 5 shoe boxes of em. If you were wondering about my storage methods, I just sorta grab miscellaneous boxes and use them. And surprisingly enough, I know where everything is. If you said, "Where's OPI Not like the Movies?" I'd say, "First box, middle, next to Pure Ice Strapless." It's an organized chaos, no?

 Box #1! These are all my older ones. Around my OPI Last Friday Night is where my obsession started. By the way, there won't be much to say on these boxes since they're organized by when I got them. If I ever decided to put them in according to colors I'd go crazy. I mean once they were in a nice order, I'd have to rearrange as soon as I got a new polish. I prefer to be lazy :D
Box #2

Box #3

Box #4
EDIT: This box is now full..... Sorry wallet......
Box #5: Fankens!!
Yay! I can actually write about this box!! These are all the frankens that I have. I stress the "have" because a lot of the frankens I've made have been given to friends/ family/ other bloggers. If you want me to do a post on all my frankens please ask.... cuz I need motivation ;D I'm sorta dying of a cold... so ya! Oh, just in case you were wondering, the few polishes on the right side of the white cloth are the un-nameds.

Tis all!
Luv y'all! byeeeeeee
