Christmas Confetti

Yay! Finally I have a new blog post. =) I've been waiting to use China Glaze Party Hearty since the last week of October, when I first purchased it. I wanted to wait until closer to Christmas to wear it. I'm not really a seasonal person. Last Christmas I was wearing neon green. This colour has been layered over emerald green, silver, gold, white, black, and red by other bloggers so I wanted to think of something different. I chose to layer it over Joe Fresh Mint, a pretty mint green. It took three coats to become opaque. I painted one coat of Party Hearty, then touched up a few areas that didn't have as much glitter. It wasn't as gritty as I thought it would be but it definitely needs topcoat. 

My mom bought that cute violin ornament you see in the last picture. Both me and my sister play the violin. I love this combination, I wasn't sure if it would look good but I've received several compliments on it. I have a feeling it will be my only Christmas manicure. I'm just not in to doing seasonal stuff. I do whatever I get inspired to do. 

I need recommendations for a really moisturizing cuticle oil/hand cream. I already have dry skin and it is getting really bad in this cold weather. Solar Oil hasn't been working for me ever since it got cold.Thankfully it hasn't snowed yet!

I was tagged today by (Squoval)iscious! with an award/questions tag. I was surprised to find I wasn't following her yet! She has some really beautiful designs on her blog and I am thankful she tagged me.

1. Why did you create the blog?
I had been reading nail blogs for a year and finally decided I wanted to create one too. I liked the idea of sharing my manicures and I was just getting in to nail art too. The community is my favourite part; I love receiving feedback from the comments.
2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
Mostly nail and beauty blogs. I am following a few random blogs, like a Beatles photo blog and a couple blogs about Japan.
3. Do you have a favorite make-up brand?
I'm not much in to makeup but I do like Fyrinnae. I love smaller companies because they always seem to have excellent customer service and unique products. Their products are often cheaper as well.
4. And a favorite clothing brand?
Not brand conscious at all! I can't really think of too many brands, I just wear what I like.
5. What make-up products are essential for you?
Lip Balm, mascara, lip gloss, sunscreen. I only wear eye makeup occasionally when I feel like it!
6. What's your favorite colour?
Purple or teal.
7. What's your favorite perfume?
I don't have a specific one. I like fresh scents like lemon, mint, cucumber. On the other hand, I enjoy fruity scents too. I really like most scents except sugary, vanilla, and cookie type scents.
8. What's the film you liked the most?
Ehh...I don't know. xD
9. What countries would you like to go?
I've already been to Germany and Austria but I would LOVE to go again. I also want to visit South Korea, Australia, the UK, and Japan. 

I tag/award Starving Nail Addict! I love her designs. =) 

I realized I haven't updated my blog link list in awhile so I am going to do that now. There are a lot of blogs I need to add to it. Also, I checked to make sure I am following everyone who is following me. If you follow me or comment on here I will most likley check out your blog and follow. 
It's nice to post again...thanks for reading!

Peace and Love,


  1. Yay, I just did my Party Hearty manicure too! :D Mine is over Jolly Holly, it's so freakin' festive!

  2. Your nails look like minty ice cream! Yum! Have you ever heard/tried Haken cuticle oil before? I bought it the other day at Sally's. . .but I've never used cuticle oil in my life, lol!

  3. I like Mango Mend (Sally's has it) and also SH Radiant Hands Nails & Cuticle Creme (which for all I know they've discontinued while I wasn't looking). Cremes seem to work better for me than oils especially in winter.

    Oh, and yes, I have seen Perplex--at Ulta and one lone CVS of all the ones I go to semi-regularly. I put a post up today with a pic of the display.

  4. I'm really late on this but I love this green! I feel so ashamed that I don't have any Joe polishes at all in my collection and I'm Canadian haha. I love this!

    Lush Lemony Flutter is a great cuticle cream :) And Nubar makes a cuticle oil that smells like sweet almonds that I love. I hope your hands are feeling better now!
