My step-sister got me some Sally Hansen HD Nails in Cyber (purple), Lite (yellow), and Pixel Pretty (turquoise). She really liked the yellow so I decided to paint her nails and she suggested the little bees on her thumbs. Not my best work but she only kept it on for one day :)

My boyfriend got me three nail polishes for Christmas and two of them are here. The first is "Secret Peri-wink-le" by China Glaze.
I hope you enjoyed these, I had lots of fun doing them. I started with no base coat, just a clear nail, and put top coat over it. I like what the top coat did to the polishes. You can't see it in the photos, but I like how you can see through the polish, where the toothpick went through.

In this manicure I used some ideas from Asami's Holiday Mix & Match
Here is my ring finger:
And here is my thumb:
I used Zoya's Irene as a base with two coats, and I'm sure it could have used a third coat:
For the ornaments I used "Fiji" by Sinful Colors (purple), "Respect the World" by Nicole by OPI (turquoise), and "Persiphony" by Zoya (pink). I used "Veruschka" by Zoya as the strings and "This is It" by Sinful Colors for the little gold accents.
For the gingerbread man I used "Jinx" by Zoya as the body base, "Under 18" by Sinful Colors for the bow, and "Black Out" by Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear for the buttons and eyes.
The pictures today aren't as good as usual but I'm traveling around for the holidays so I did what I could. :) Hope you enjoy this, and check out Asami's Blogspot for more fabulous nail designs!

Just playing around with these, and thought they'd go well together.

This is by far my favorite color that I've gotten so far! I was able to put it on pretty smoothly, so that made me happy. Below is two coats, no TC, in a bunch of different angles so you can see all the color!!

I decided to do my toes tonight and wanted to try a new color I got from Zoya recently- Persiphony!
Enjoy, and thanks for reading!

So I got my Green Friday polishes in! Because of their huge amount of orders, though, I'm missing Envy and Tangy. Here's a view of the colors I did get in today:

This is 'Respect the World' from OPI's Nicole collection, NI 229.
I really love this color and got it in order to attempt Asami's mermaid mani.
I didn't have time to try the mani tonight but thought I would give you all a quick preview of this beautiful color. Enjoy!

In case you haven't heard, Zoya is doing a promotion for their online site tomorrow (Friday, Nov. 27) called Green Friday. Buy $20+ and add a certain code to get six of Zoya's green polishes free. The following polishes are the free ones: Tangy, Envy, Midori, Suvi, Irene, and Veruschka.
Green is my favorite color, and I don't have any of the colors they're giving away for free, so I'm very excited about this. The $20 I'm going to spend will go toward the colors Jinx, Meiko, and Zara.
Here is the link to Zoya's blog about their Green Friday Sale: http://zoyanailpolish.blogspot.com/2009/11/zoya-nail-polish-creates-green-friday.html
While talking to Asami, she showed me a link to some swatches on Flickr by MollyHell (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mollyhell/sets/72157616007710769/ ), whose Blogger is http://polishmayhem.blogspot.com/. I really like her swatches, so that's why I mentioned her here.
Enjoy Thanksgiving as well as Black/Green Friday!

Here's the "haul" post I promised, though not every color is represented in full here. These are six colors I got from Walgreens by Sinful Colors.
The first is a purple color called "Fiji", Sinful Colors #119.
As we saw in the previous post, I put some blue tips on top of the "Tokyo Pearl", a color called "Love Nails", Sinful Colors #282.
