Halloween Goodies

I wanted to share a couple of pretties I recently ordered from Artisans A GoGo.  I first found out about this great little shop about a year ago from one of my very favorite blogs, Black Nail Polish & Lip Gloss.  I love skulls and I love hair clips, so I fell in love instantly when I visited this shop.  There is still time to place an order and get it for Halloween.  The prices are great and the quality is perfect.  Shipping was really quick too.

The first piece I ordered was this ceramic necklace with a spider.  When I opened the mailing bag this is what was in it.  It was so cute I didn't even want to open it.!

This is about 2 inches in diameter and not to heavy.  I love that you can either wear it as a choker or a little longer.

I really 'needed' a hair clip too, so I ordered the Day of the Dead Ceramic Halloween Clip.  The box had a cute black bow on it too, but I forgot to take a picture.  But here is the spiderweb stamped box and the greated skull clip ever!

 I love these goodies and I hope you go over to Artisans A GoGo and find something you can't live with out too!  My biggest decision right now is do I get the Winter Bride Victorian Head Piece or the Lucky Ceramic Necklace???  Most likely BOTH!  Have a great day and thanks for looking!

Kiss Halloween Nails

Halloween is this weekend and I wanted to devote the rest of this week to Halloween goddies.  First up are these awesome Kiss Halloween nails and decals.

How fun are these!?!  I love to dress up, but since I am usually busy getting everyone else ready, I am usually too busy to worry about a costume for myself, so I usually do someting fun with my nails and make-up.  Kiss makes it really quick and easy to add a little Halloween to my life. 

Hayride is set of deep red nails with a black design.  They went on really easy and they look really good.

Witch is a set of pointed red nails with black moons.  This would complete any witch costume or even a flapper girl costume.

Last week, I even used a couple of the face and body decals on my niece.
They stayed on for several hours and looked great!

I have seen these at CVS, Walmart, Kmart, and Rite Aid.  You can check out the Kiss website here.  I can't wait to see if they come out with Christmas goddies!

I was recently sent these adorable pedicure socks or Pedisavers.  These are great!  The idea is to put them on before you polish your toes and you can wear flip flops or walk around.  So cute!  They come in pink, white and black and 2 sizes, ankle and mid-calf.  You can check out the Pedisavers website here!  Perfect for the upcoming cold months.

Deborah Lippmann~Polish and Music

What could be better than nail polish and music?  Maybe throw in a cupcake and I would say perfection??  We all know that Deborah Lippmann is an amazing manicurist and the creator of some of the most gorgeous polishes I have have ever seen.  But did you know she can sing? 

Back in July, three lovely glitters debuted at the Nordstrom half-yearly sale.  All That Jazz is a trio of beautiful glitter polish, perfect for the upcoming holiday season. 

Razzle Dazzle is a gorgeous raspberry glitter.  This polish packs a glitter punch. 

Some Enchanted Evening is a sheer pink base polish with pink small and hexigon glitter.

Lady Sings the Blues is a sheer midnight blue with silver small and hexigon glitter.

On November 7th & 8th, Deborah Lippmann with be performing live at Feinstein's in New York. You can get more information and buy tickets on the Feinstein's website.  You can also follow Deborah Lippmann on twitter for updates.

Today Was a Fairy Tale

Today is Kim Kardasian's 30th birthday and in honor of her birthday, I have a Deborah Lippmann polish to share with you.  Kim wore this color on a recent photo shoot and it is also one of Deborah Lippmann's holiday colors.  But, before I go any further, I want to give you fair warning that there is a picture of Kim Kardashian at the end of this post that some might find inappropriate.  I totally understand and respect your right to that opinion, but I feel this picture is beautiful and I'm posting it.

Today Was a Fairytale and all of the other gorgeous Deborah Lippmann polishes can be found at Deborah Lippmann's website, Nordstrom, Barneys New York, & Neiman Marcus.

Today Was a Fairytale is an amazing combination of  large and small glitter shapes and is infused with Virgin Diamond Powder, suspended in a very sheer blue-grey base.  This polish is extemely sparkley!  I am really left a little speachless by it.



~Inside with a flash~

Kim Kardashian recently wore this polish on a recent photo shoot for the November 2010 issue of W Magazine.  Kim wore this and her outfit was nothing more than silver body paint.  I think this picture is beautiful.

This is a gorgeous color and a very happy birthday with to Kim Kardashian.  I would also like to welcome my husband to Nail'd & Polish'd, lol.

Deborah Lippmann~Dark Side of the Moon & Lady Sings the Blues

I know the Emmy Awards were a while ago, but I have two Deborah Lippmann polishes that were really hot at the Emmys and are timeless colors that should be in every nail fanatics collection.

Lea Michele wore Lady Sings the Blues.  Lady Sings the Blues is a stunning polish!  It has silver glitter and silver hexagon glitter suspended in a dark blue base.

January Jones wore Dark Side of the Moon.  This is the perfect vampy color.  It is super dark blackberry creme.

These two polishes are classy, timeless, and a must have!  You can find Deborah Lippmann polish at Nordstrom, Barneys, Neiman Marcus and at the Deborah Lippman website.

Rising Star is golden copper shimmer with golden micro glitter.

The Show Must Go On!  is a gorgeous dark raspberry shimmer with pink micro glitter.

Take the Stage is an orange shimmer with copper and golden micro glitter.

Happy Friday!  I have a great weekend planned.  My sister & my nieces are flying in from Tennessee today and on Sunday, I am going to NailPro Sacramento.  It is a nails only trade show!  I can't wait to share all the great goodies I'm going to find!

Today I have Incoco.  They are dry nail polish that you apply to you nails like a sticker.  These are really cool!  I was warned there is a learning curve, so I followed the directions and i think it went pretty well.  I couldn't believe how fast and easy it was.  The pictures look like the tips are peeling up, but they are not.  This is were the learning curve came in for me-I just smoothed them out a little more and they look like I had just polihed my nails.  You can find Incoco here or I saw them at Walgreens.

OPI~Burlesque II

Happy Monday!  Fall is here in my neck of the woods.  It's cloudy and cold!  Well, not cold, just not 90+ degrees.  I have the other 2 OPI Burlesque glitters to show you today.  But first, I need to correct myself about the release date of these polishes.  They are out now!  You can find them at your favorite OPI e-tailer and retailer!
These pictures are all inside with a flash.  The first picture is one coat of polish and the second is two coats of polish.

Simmer & Shimmer is a beautiful sheer aqua colored blue base with aqua, silver and just a tiny bit of pink glitter.  So pretty and sparkly!

Show It & Glow It!  By far my favorite of the glitters.  It is a sheer dark magenta base jammed pack with dark and light pink and siver glitter.  This one is a must have!

There are 2 other glitters in this collection.  Glow Up Already! is an olive green and gold glitter and Bring On the Bling is a gold glitter.  So what do you think of the gitters?  Have you bought any yet?

Chrome Nails

Whoo-hoo!  This is the craziest thing I have ever done to my nails.  I am sure by now, you've heard about Minx manicures.  Well, Broadway Nails has their version called Chrome Nails.  These are longer lasting and a more cost effective way to achieve the Minx look.  They are glue-on full nails and they retail for $5.99!  Look for them at your local drug store!
This kit comes with every thing you need to Chrome out your nails!  12 Chrome nails and 12 Chrome with zebra print nails and glue.  It's really easy and check out how cool they look!

I couldn't get a good close up without turning the flash off and it gave them a golden tint in this one, but they are the same silver nails as in the first picture.
