Red Nails? Wine not?

**press sample ** 

Y'all Red-Y For .... 

I'm not!!!!  It's been my vacation week and honestly, for the first time in forever, I do not want to get to Friday! 
Don't judge me!!! I know I'm not thinking about the long week you've been having, I'm thinking about how much longer I wish THIS particular week was. 

So I figured .... Red Nails??? Wine Not!!! 

Being that I have this perfect summer red shade that can take me into fall and accented with Fresh Prince-ss

China Glaze Rebel Fall 2016 Collection

** press sample ** 

ahhh the sweet sound of the 90's!!!!! finally something that's right up my alley.  I am completely out of tune with "today's" jams and tv shows and the keep-up-with-the-times.  This is for us, the true 90's babies and the loving era. 

"Inspired by the 1990s but with a modern twist, the feminine pinks and pearls paired with deep purples, blues and grays capture the spirit of the decade that brought us grunge, baby doll dresses paired with Doc Martens, Kate Moss, and the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”. China Glaze puts a unique twist on the trend by utilizing some of the newest finishes in nail polish including a gorgeous matte satin in Combat Blue-ts (my personal fave) and slight color transitioning pearlescent in the aptly named Pearl Jammin’."

and one by one... this is the story all about how..... 
this pink creme got twisted upside down.  Her name is Fresh Prince-ss

Pearl Jammin' a blue opalescent.  Seen here in 3 coats for full coverage but top any dark color with it for fresh princess hue.

Dope Taupe - a creme nude for a neutral touch.

Y'all Red-y For  this red with shimmery tones.  The perfect summer red to take you into the trek of Autumn.

And it even stamps well....

Jagged Little Teal:  I got to be honest, I don't get the 90's reference on this one but totally get the teal hue!

Purple Fiction  is a staple Autumn color

When in "those days" with the change of season, get this baby to Combat Blue-TS and rock on with this matte cobalt blue.

Heroine Chic it's a nice shimmery gray with relish/purple hues shimmer

Another princess worthy shade: Don't Mesh With Me.
a gorgeous lavender shimmer seen here with and without undies for that perfect mani that can turn any day outfit into a night bling.

Hey ya!!! don't miss out on this Blue-ya
Not a fan of blue? this will turn you!

Holo At Ya Girl! is the glitter topper perfect for any of the shades of the collection.  Seen here with Purple Fiction and Pearl Jammin'

Yes, I have a right hand. No, I can't paint it + coupon code for nailplates

For those of you wondering if I have a right hand, as I always post pics of my right hand-manicures.  There's a reason for that:

I am right handed and I can't do nailart with my left hand   :/  I know, shame on me!

But here's the latest attempt.  Using Pale to the Chief (nude) and Suzi the First Lady of Nails (green) by OPI from its most recent collection entitled Washington DC.   I call this mani, DC goes to Paris ^_^

Stamped with black on black using Ejiubas geometric plate provided for review.

Full review of plate will be forthcoming.  In the meantime, you can check it out yourself and start using a coupon code.

This collection is fully representative of all autumn color families: blues, greens, reds, purples, yellows, oranges, brown and neutrals.  The names are super fun.  Pays a full visit to our nation's capital in every shade.

I prefer the last three shades for their blush undertone.  Whichever you chose for your next mani, they all compliment any skin tone and are perfect for any nailart project.

Go at it!! Have fun!
