The Nail Files 3/09/2012

It's Friday!! Thank goodness! Time to share my nails of the week. Linking up with Tara and Vicki for Friday's Nail Files

This is "glamorous life" by essence. I'm loving it! It reminds me of OPI's The One That Got Away but more pink. I had a lot of trouble capturing how pretty the color is. After a gazillion pictures, this was the closest. My local Shoppers just started carrying essence. I grabbed 3 bottles! At $1.49, how could I not?! I also picked up "a lovely secret" the lavender and "walk of fame" the brown. I don't know much about this line. But the color has been on for 3 days and I'm not bored with it and it hasn't chipped. Awesome!!

Earlier in the week I was playing with my nails. I wanted to try the leopard pattern and the half moon. Both done free hand were ok. I was trying to use St. Patrick's day colors (green & gold) but maybe the green was too dark. I don't know. I liked the leopard but not the color combo  or maybe not the moon thing, just green or gold nails.
gold- Sephora by OPI  "Already Famous"
green- China Glaze  "Glittering Garland"
nude- butter London "Yummy Mummy"

Not much has been going on this week other than lots of sickies! Hopefully we'll all be well soon. Tomorrow Josh and Chloe leave for the states for spring break. We are driving into Michigan for the exchange. The bright spot in this little road trip?? Hubby is taking me to Cheesecake Factory for dinner. I have no idea what I'll order for a meal, but I know I'll be having this for dessert...
Tuxedo!!! Can NOT wait! Oliver is going to love this!

  6. I tried out the spots and failed at them. It was really sad. I need to get a proper tool and try again.

    To be honest, I'm not a fan of the moon nails - they look weird to me. All of those color are gorgeous though - especially the pink :)
