O.P.I Mariah Carey Liquid Sand

Today I have a swatch from the Mariah Carey collection from O.P.I.

Stay the Night

O.P.I describes Stay the Night as a matte back with red glints.
I really loved this color. I was surprised that you could still see the red glitters after 
it turned matte. 

I used 3 coats. 
It did take longer to dry than other polish but you don't use a top coat.

What do you think about this collection? Have you tired any of the Mariah Carey collection?

This was the last nail polish set that I bought in December. I'm trying to go tell August with out buying any nail polish. The only thing that I can buy is nail strengthener. If I do go that long, my husband promised that he would buy me 2 pairs of Steve Madden sandals.

Do you think your ready for this Jelly!

I don't think your ready for this JELLY!
I don't think your ready for this JELLY!
Every time I do a jelly sandwich (manicure of course) it reminds
me of the Bootylicious song. 

Here is my Jelly Sandwich.

A while ago on my face book page I got asked what was a jelly sandwich manicure. 
I decided to do a little tutorial.
 They call it a Jelly sandwich because your using sheer or jelly polishes.
For my sheer polish I used essie, ballet slipper.
When dried, apply a layer of  glitter polish.
Then you add another layer of the same sheer/jelly polish on top of it.

Now you have a Jelly sandwich.
The items I used:
essie- ballet slipper
Jordana- party

Cherry Manicure!

My favorite fruit that I love to eat in the summer is Cherries!
With that being said, I decided to do a nail art.

 The base color is JulieG 9 to 5. It is a peachy creme color (2 coats). It's not this bright in person.

I used the Konad special polish in red and the green polish in the migi nail art pen.
For those wondering what a migi nail art pen is: It can be used as a nail polish and a  nail art pen.
 (twist for brush and pull for the pen)
I love using these!

 My cherry Manicure!
I hope you like my manicure.

The items I used:
  • JulieG- 9 to5
  • Cheeky plate-CH13 
  • Konad special polish-Red
  • Migi nail art pen-green and white

* You really don't need to go out and buy nail art plates. You can even use a dotting tool or a pin that has round end and dip it in red polish to make the cherries. Then with a thin brush or an old eye liner brush use it to make the leaf's.

How to do Border Nails.

Sorry for being m.i.a, I went back to school to finish my degree in Business. I well do my best to keep posting. I  have a lot of how to's and tutorials on nail art designs. So that should keep me busy for the next couple of days.
Today I well show you how I do the nail border. There are a lot of different ways you can do them. But I find this way to be the easiest for me.

Paint your nails with a base color of your choice. I decided to do a accent finger.

 With a thin nail art brush out line the outer part of your nails using a different color.

Add your favorite top coat and your done.

Here is a list of what I used:
Jesse's girl-Stiletto
JulieG- Bikini
thin nail art brush (if you don't have a brush you can use an old liquid eye liner brush)

I hope you like this little tutorial. If you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them in comment area. I well response to every single on of them. If you want me to do a tutorial on something that you seen you can post a picture of it on my FACEBOOK PAGE.

My new favorite nude color/shade

My new favorite nude shade is ballet slippers by essie.

 Ballet slippers is a classic pale pink with a sheer finish. I think this color is very elegant. You can 
wear it to a special occasion or just as an everyday wear. (It's very pretty)

 I used Konad image plate m84. With there special red polish.
I also added essie set as stone on my ring finger.
Well I hope you liked my Mani. Tell me what you think?  Have you tried ballet slippers?

P.s. I entered a nail art contest at Rite aid and I need your votes to win. Please go this link and vote for my NAILS! The name it's under isPAULINA MUNOZ
