Winter Wonderland

Today I have a winter manicure for you, although that was probably obvious by the title 🙂 .

Snowflake So to make this manicure I used 2 coats of OPI Nail Envy Matte as a base coat. Next I applied 2 coats of Essie Aruba Blue and the snowflake was made with LA Colors Art Deco Nail Art Brush in White. I was going to finish it there but it didn’t look quite finished so I used a coat of  Sally Hansen Extreme Wear in Disco Ball which is a nice iridescent but somewhat clear sparkle coat. ( I know that it is a bad description but that is what comes to mind when I look at it) To seal in the beauty I used 2 coats of Revlon Extra Life No Chip Top Coat and one very glossy coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails with Nylon in nude. I don’t think that the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails is available anymore.  I will hopefully have a Christmas Nail Haul up soon just hoping the weather will get better soon so I can take some good pictures, so stay tuned!

Thanks for Reading! 🙂 🙂

Nail Polish Haul

So I picked up few nail polishes over the last little while and I thought I would share them with you. Plus my wonderful boyfriend bought me some. 🙂


First we have Essie Blue Rhapsody which is a beautiful chrome blue from their recent Mirror Metallic Collection. Then two Art Deco by L.A. Colors nail art colours in White and Black. The last one in this photo is Wet n’ Wild Fastdry in The Gold and the Beautiful.


These are the ones my boyfriend bought for me; they are from the Magnetix collection and the colours are in order: Postively In Love, Con-fused?,  and Gold Fusion. Of course we also got the magnetic plate that has three different designs.

New to blogging

I am new to the blogging world but I thought I would give it a try. I have loved painting my nails for years. In recent years, I have collected more nail polish and thought I would share it with the world. So welcome to my blog Jewelled Nails.
