China Glaze Glitz Bitz 'N Pieces

 Hey guys! Just a short and sweet post today. I picked up three of the new China Glaze Bitz 'N Pieces polishes yesterday and couldn't wait to try them out.
 Graffiti Glitter is a clear base with various sizes of green and black hex glitter and black bar glitter. Picture is one coat of Graffiti Glitter over white with top coat.

 Mosaic Madness is a clear base with various sizes of blue and black hex glitter and black bar glitter. Picture is one coat of Mosaic Madness over white with top coat.

 Glitz 'N Pieces is a clear base with various sizes of silver and black hex glitter and black bar glitter. Picture is two coats of Glitz 'N Pieces over white with top coat.

 While all of these seem to be fairly packed with glitter the large black hex glitter is a bit sparse and you sometimes need to fish it out if you want it on the nail.

Pink with Hearts

 Hey guys, today I have some Valentine's Day nail art! My nails have been in sad shape the past few weeks and I haven't really been doing anything with them but I can't pass up Valentine's Day art. Picture is three coats of Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Pink Promise with light grey and white acrylic paint for the hearts.

Sinful Colors Faceted

 Hey guys! Today I have Faceted from the Sinful Colors Holiday Shimmers collection. It is a clear base with small purple hex glitter and iridescent bar glitter. It's very pretty, the bar glitter is very subtle, but it is a bit of a pain to apply. Like all bar glitters it does tend to hang over the edge if you aren't careful. Picture is one coat of Faceted over white.

Chains, Rhinestones, and Roses

 I haven't had much time this week to do really anything with my nails, other than remove the peacock design, but I was going through all of the old files I have on my computer and found these pictures that I never posted. Why, I don't know, but I figured I would share them with you guys.
 These pictures were taken about a year ago while I was still living in Japan. I believe I used OPI Don't Touch My Tutu for the tips and Care to Danse? over the entire nail with a bit of silver holographic glitter, rhinestones, chains, and fimo roses.

 This is before the glitter and rhinestones.

Peacock Feather

 Hey guys! A few friends have been hounding me to do peacock nails-you know who you are-and I finally had to try them. My first attempt wasn't too great so I had to practice a bit and I think I'm getting it now. The base is OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, the feather is done with acrylic paints, and the glitter is OPI Bring On The Bling.

Rainbow Honey The Sweet Talk Collection

 Look at the nice surprise I found in my mailbox yesterday, two of the three polishes from the new collection by Rainbow Honey called The Sweet Talk Collection! Just in time for Valentine's day!

 First up, Sweet Talk is a white jelly base with a mix of light blue, pink and purple medium and small hex glitter with a hidden pink shimmer. You can see the hidden shimmer a bit in my middle finger. Picture is three coats with top coat. This is a top coat thirsty polish so you will need a few coats to make it smooth. 

 Now for my surprise favorite! Xoxo is a clear base with red medium and small hex glitter and packed with a ton of holographic microglitter. This one is stunning in person! Honestly, I wasn't blown away by it in the bottle but on the nail, especially over black, it is amazing! Picture is two coats of Xoxo alone on my index and pinky, one coat of Xoxo over black on my middle and one coat of Xoxo over white on my index finger, all with top coat.

 There is also a third polish in this collection called Be Mine, which is a pink with microshimmer and gold flecks.
 The Sweet Talk Collection will be available on Fab.com 1/16 and will be officially released on 1/25 at 12:01 AM EST at RainbowHoney.com and participating retailers
 Last, but definitely not least, is a $5 off coupon to use on any purchase at RainbowHoney.com! The promo code is SWEETTALK$5 and it expires on 2/28/2013. Also, if you spend $25 or more you get free shipping in the US and Canada!

Cherry Blossoms

 I love cherry blossoms almost as much as I love animal print nail designs, I blame Japan for that. No matter how you do them they always seem to turn out great! This is a design inspired by Robin Moses, love her too, you can see her video for this design here.
 OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls is the base with OPI Cherry Blossom and OPI I Lily Love You on the tips, the branches and blossoms are acrylic paint.

OPI Pink Yet Lavender

 Hey guys! Today I have another polish from the Mariah Carey collection. It isn't a liquid sand, just a regular glitter polish.
 Pink Yet Lavender is a clear base with medium light pink hex glitter and small holographic glitter. The glitter is much more dense then I first thought, it's nice. Picture is one coat of Pink Yet Lavender over black with top coat.

OPI Stay The Night

 Hey guys! I made the mistake of stopping by Ulta the other day while I was out and spotted the Mariah Carey collection. I wasn't too taken with with the liquid sand polishes but did pick up one.
 Stay The Night is a black base with pink glitter. The liquid sand polishes dry to a matte, textured finish but you can add top coat for a glossy look. Picture below is three coats with no top coat.

 Here it is with top coat.
