My Stash & Storage

Hello :)

I recently got a "Melmer" a.k.a. Jetmax Modular Storage from Michaels.  I am so happy with my purchase. I cant wait to decorate it, with acrylic paint probably.

My whole set up.

Melmer draw #1

Melmer Draw #2 - Sadly its empty :( ... This will be put to good use soon.

Melmer Draw #3 - a.k.a my favorite draw! I go to this draw the most.

All of the essentials. 

Junky, miscellaneous draw. I still haven't touched the rhinestones i got off eBay almost 6 months ago. These rhinestones are so tiny, they annoy me.

My mani/pedi towel.

 Flies P.S. I kinda hate glass files. They annoy me.

Brushes, nail glue, and small glass jars (great for acetone), and quick cleanup.

Dotting tools, orange sticks


Clippers, toe separators, pipettes for easily getting acetone out of the bottle.

Day 6 - Violet Nails ( 31 Day Challenge)

Hello :)

"No Hard Feelings" is a pretty color, but i feel that it washes my skin out a little bit. The application was tricky. It was streaky on the first coat then became opaque after the second coat was applied. This polish is VERY thin.  I'm going to leave the top off for a couple of hours to thicken it up a bit.

Then I added a little nail art. I don't know what I was thinking with those diagonal stripes LOL. Maybe I would have liked it better if the lines weren't so thick.

This french tip makes me wanna try different color combinations.

Day 5 - Blue Nails ( 31 Day Challenge)

Good Morning!

I haven't posted because I've been sick with a cold. Words cannot describe how I hate being sick. I hardly ever get sick, so when I do I am a big baby lol!  Anywho... On to the nails.

I made this franken about a month ago. It wasn't the color I was originally going for, so I wasn't too interested in swatching it immediately. I wanted a very, very light blue.

I used an OLD Ruby Kisses polish, that I've had for years. I hated the color and only wore it once. The name of this polish is "Caribbean"
I also used Wet n Wild "French White Cream".

Meet my sky blue franken! I'm in love. I don't have a color similar to this in my stash.

I liked this color so much, I didn't wanna remove it. Cant wait to try some nail art with this color as a base.

Day 3 - Yellow Nails ( 31 Day Challenge)

Good Afternoon!
I had to cut my nails down low again. :( Seems like every time they get some length one of them breaks . I hate uneven nails on me.

I am not a fan of yellows at all. I only have 4 yellow polishes.

Kleancolor - Funky Yellow

2 coats,

I then layered Wet n Wild - The Wonder Yellows !

1 coat 

2 coats

I like how it looks layered. This polish is way too sheer for me to ever wear it alone.

Day 2 - Orange Nails ( 31 Day Challenge)

I started this challenge last month, but never got pass Day 1, lol. So i'm trying again.

This is one of my favorite oranges. I love how it makes my skin pop.

Ruby Kisses - Orange You Over

I also attempted to try a glitter sandwich, but failed! I used Wet n Wild's - Party of Five Glitters. I should have did another coat to really get the glitter to stand out!

Wet n Wild Sale

The Clear top coat is nothing to write home about lol. However they are great for making franken polishes. That's what I plan to use them for. So its like paying 0.50 for each of the sets .
