Relaunching Soon!

Hello, my darlings!

nailtipsy had to be pushed to the side for a while so I could get some things in my life in order.  We recently made a big move and I now have a nice big area just for me and my polishes so I will begin swatching polishes and doing nail art again VERY soon!

Look for the official relaunch of nailtipsy on June 23rd (earlier if I can swing it)! I’ve missed doing this and I can’t wait to get back!

Thank you to everyone that visits and I’ll see you soon!

New Year’s Eve Mani!

Woohoo!  It’s New Year’s Eve! I’ve had a pint each of Karbach Brewery’s Fra-Gee-Lay and Deschutes Chasin’ Freshies and I’m in the celebrating mood!

I’d be remiss if I didn’t post my nails for the evening.

I used OPI Black Onyx and Wet n Wild Kaleidoscope.  My top coat is the WONDERFUL Digital Flash from Nail Pattern Boldness.  The WnW goes on really nicely and I haven’t regretted picking it up.  It’s almost half empty after a few months because it’s just so fun to throw on top of pretty much any color.

I hope everyone has a safe and spectacular New Year’s Eve and a glorious and prosperous 2014.

Thanks for your support!

Dark Queen of the Mermaids

I had been debating between an homage to my new Stila Magnificent Metal Foil shadow in dusty rose or my new MAC Pro Longwear eye liner in mountain air – which is amazing and beautiful and goes on like BUTTER and lasts aaaaaall day long.

Across the Universe gives me the best of both worlds with the blue and green hex and microglitters in a navy jelly base creating a reflective surface that I can only imagine is like catching the last glimmering light beam deep in the ocean with the very last light filtering through before darkness.  This is why I call it my Dark Queen of the Mermaids polish.

If you haven’t splurged for this one yet and you love blue polishes and/or glitters, this is definitely a must have for your collection.  The formula is perfection.  It goes on smoothly and beautiful and looks stunning even after just two coats by itself.  Putting this polish on is simply a joy because anyone can do it and look at their nails and be in awe.  Yes.  You just did that.
