I am not too fond of my shorter nails in this photo, but oh well.....They need to be a tad bit longer (like they are currently!!!) I just generally like longer nails on me!

This is two coats of Zoya Charla, which is amazing on its own. I have several other polishes that I think look EXACTLY like Zoya Charla, so I hope to do a comparison post this weekend. Also, I added one coat of GOSH Rainbow, which is an awesome orange flaky polish. I think the orange and blue paired together look awesome (in my opinion). 

And before I removed the polish, I had to try something I seen on ANOTHER bottle of Polish?!. (Click here to view her blog. Its awesome!). I think my line of orange needs to be thinner. I used my polish brush because I was lazy. I should have used my thin paint brush, but again, this was just something I did before removing the polish because I was curious. I like the look but not with this manicure! Maybe too much orange haha!

Hi everyone! Don't forget to register for my giveaway if you haven't. It ends on Thursday, Sept 1. 

I am really excited about today's manicure. It is inspired by the blog "Let Them Have Polish". If you haven't checked out this blog, please do. (Click here). I saw this manicure earlier this month, and I feel in love. It is too cute, so I had to recreate it for myself. I used two coats of Sinful Colors I Miss You, which is an awesome glitter polish. Then I used my new Konad plates (which I specifically ordered so I could do this manicure haha). I used the plate m59 for the bow with black polish, and plate m79 for the polka dots with white polish. So have you ever been so inspired you recreated the same manicure you saw on someone else's blog?

I have done some major hauling in the past couple of weeks. I really enjoy seeing other bloggers' haul post, so I thought I would share what I got. I am almost embarrassed to post these photos because I have purchased so many in the last two weeks, but I know some of you will enjoy this! Sorry the pictures are blurry, but I had a hard time getting clear photos.

I placed my first order of Nfu-Oh Polishes. I wanted to buy some jelly finish polishes since I do not own any. I have been seeing the "jelly sandwich manicures" all over blogs, and I am dying to try one. I also ordered a few of their flaky polishes and one out of this world glitter polish. Take a look! 

From left to right: JS-18, JS-16, JS-33, JS-27, and JS-28

NFU-050, NFU-056, NFU-052, and NFU GS-14
I also placed an order with Orly. In addition to these, I ordered Fowl Play, but I guess it is temporary out of stock. I have not received it yet. 

It's Not Rocket Science, Here Comes Trouble, Lunar Eclipse, Galaxy Girl, Bubbly Bombshell, ad Space Cadet

I also went down to my local Sally Beauty Supply and purchased these. 
China Glaze CG in the City, China Glaze Skyscraper, China Glaze  Lubu Heels, China Glaze Concrete Catwalk, and Ultra Pro Glamrock
I also received my giveaway winnings from Courtney over at An Amateur's Nail Obsession. If you haven't checked out her blog yet, you really need to. The three middle colors are SUPER neon and dry matte (of course). They are so bright and fun. 

Sinful Colors Gogo Girl, Fusion Neon, Summer Peach, Neon Melon, and Secret Admirer

So I tried Nail Nerd's Rose tutorial. (Click here to view the tutorial). I saw her rose manicure, and I absolutely fell in love with it.  I asked her if she would do a tutorial, and of course she did. I have to admit. She makes it look so easy. My attempt did not turn out as good as hers. I think I made my flowers too big or something. I can't possibly imagine making them any smaller though because the lighter detail stroke would be impossible for me. haha...  She has a lot more base coat showing than I do and I think that is why I love hers so much. In addition, her flowers are perfect. Mine look crappy haha. I even took my time and practiced on a nail art wheel before trying on my actual nails. Oh well, it was fun to try, but this proves my free hand skills aren't as good as I would like them to be. I can't decide if I like the colors I choose. Thanks again Nail Nerd for the awesome tutorial. Here are the pics!

Kleancolor Neon Aqua, OPI Havana Dreams, OPI Skulls & Glassbones, L.A. Colors  I have no idea what the polish name is, Konad Light Silver
