This mani is a mess!  From my dry skin to the smudged lines - this is what happens when you do a mani late at night and your eyes are tired from working all day.  Oh well, for better or worse, here are my Easter eggs in the grass.

Revlon  Red Hot Tamale; Revlon Scented Parfume Watermelon Fizz.  Very shimmery, bright and sexy in person!

American Apparel Crescent Heights; Born Pretty Store water decals.  Use code DPX31 for a 10% discount.  Below is the direct link to the decals.  They are very delicate so when you top coat them you have to take a big glob of top coat and gently slide it over.  If you apply the top coat too firmly the design pulls up. But they are very pretty and well worth the effort!

American Apparel Crescent Heights.  Unbelievably this color photographed relatively accurately.  These types of colors are notoriously difficult to photograph.  It maybe has a touch more yellow

I added a little nail art to the beautiful China Glaze For Audrey.  Not enough to take away from the great color, but just enough to add some fun!  The stud is from an awesome pack from the Born Pretty store.  It’s a collection of square and round, gold and silver pieces all with that kind of detailing on them.  The direct link to the studs is below.  Use code DPX31 for 10% of your Born Pretty store purchase.

This is also a more accurate color photo of For Audrey than I previously posted.  The light was better today and I changed my camera settings a bit.

Question regarding my post about gel nail clips

funkymonkey218 said: Is it possible to use these over a fresh mani to prevent knocking on things while it dries?

No, these wouldn’t work for that because without the cotton in them they are too big and would move around and hit your nail bed.  They do have other specialized clips for what you want but I haven’t tried them.

Color Club, American Apparel, Sally Hansen, OPI, saran wrap, oh my!  Lots going on in this mani.

American Apparel Cameo Blue.  I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, nothing beats the American Apparel creme polishes!  The formula is perfection.  If you’re starting your nail polish collection, or just looking for some good, no nonsense, easy to use basic colors, look no further than American Apparel.  This one, Cameo Blue is discontinued.

Every now and then I post about my “mani must haves”.  This is one of them.  They are gel nail polish soak off remover clips but I I use it for regular polish.  It is especially useful to remove stubborn glitter polishes. Many people use the foil method for that but I always found it too time consuming.  These are available for $10 now on Ebay but when I bought them several years ago they were less than that.  I guess they’ve become popular!  I use it for regular nail polish also because that way you don’t get polish all over your fingers when you take it off.  I just flip the cotton over to the clean side when I do the other hand, that way you don’t waste too much cotton.
