My Favorite Things Nail Art Challenge: Day Two- Favorite Nail Polish

For this post, I was 99% certain I would do OPI Teal the Cows Come Home. I got it a few weeks ago, and I completely love it.  Then I was looking through my nail polish and I saw it.  Miss Independent is GORGEOUS! I wore it all the time before I got into blogging.  I love this color so much!  

This is OPI Natural Nails basecoat, two coats of Nicole by OPI in Miss Independent, and OPI Top Coat.

My favorite color is orange, and my favorite orange polish has got to be China Glaze Riveting from the Hunger Games collection.  It's a gorgeous polish, and has great shimmer! The pictures are old, I'm SO glad my nails are longer now. 

This is two coats of Riveting, with seche vite as a top coat and OPI natural nails for a basecoat.

Team USA Nails!

For the olympics, I wanted to do some cool nail art.  My schedule was so crazy that I only had time to do a quick stripe manicure.  This was very simple, but the results were very cool. 

I used OPI natural nails for a base coat, two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and used orly instant artist striper polishes in red and blue, and OPI top coat.

OPI Not Like The Movies

Hey! I'm back! I've been busy, working and I went on vacation to New Hampshire!  Now I'm back and have FINALLY uploaded new pictures to my camera.  I feel like I haven't posted in forever, but now I should be back to a fairly regular schedule.  I have quite a few manis, and I'm participating in a new challenge.  It's called "My Favorite Things", and I'm very excited.  You can check it out here.

As you may know, I'm a huge Katy Perry fan.  One of my favorite songs, and nail polish has got to be Not Like The Movies.  It's a great song, and a very cool nail polish. You can barely tell in the pictures, but it has a marvelous shift from grey to purple to green.  It really is a great polish. 

 I used OPI natural nails base coat, two coats of Not Like the Movies, and OPI top coat.
