Oh, Swizzle Stix!

I did not mean to neglect my nails and blog this much! Animal Crossing has seriously taken over my life. I love that game! I still haven't been able to do any nail art. Inspiration, come to me!

This is two coats of Swizzle Stix with NYC Grand Central Station acting as a top coat. Looks pretty good considering I've been wearing it for four days!

This is my favorite Barielle polish (so far)! It makes me happy. I've used it in quite a bit of nail art: Born Pretty Water Decals, Waves and Dots, my Valentine's Day nails, and Tulips for Amanda's Mom.

OPI Solitaire + Gradient

You remember when I said I was on a no-buy? Well, I had some credits so I bought OPI Solitaire! I've wanted this ever since I saw it on

This is two thin coats of OPI Solitaire. No top coat.

Application was easy and it has excellent dry time.

I wanted to do a gradient with Solitaire as a base so I pulled out my swatch sticks of the JulieG Frosted Gumdrops collection and went with Crushed Candy.

I did the gradient in my usual way, by painting the polishes directly on my makeup wedge and sponging it on. Oh my goodness. It was like I had cement all over my fingers afterwards. Cleanup, meh!

So pretty! I can imagine that using Blueberry Fizz would make a beautiful icy look for winter.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Wow. I spent the whole day running around trying to find a store with the special edition Animal Crossing: New Leaf 3DS XL bundle. I did some nail art to match it!

Here's my nails with my 3DS :)

The polishes used are White on White (China Glaze), High Line Green (NYC), Daisy (LA Colors), Big Apple Red Creme (NYC), Pelican Gray (China Glaze). I did it all with a dotting tool and some toothpicks.

I'm off to play my new game now!
