Hidy ho there.

Summer is quickly winding down here but there is still time for a few more hot manis. I'm still working on getting the freehand cheetah print down so I gave it another whirl, this time with neon! I absolutely love this look, it is just fun to wear.

This is China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy with SH Hard as nails (black) and Pure Ice (white). The pictures didn't come out too bad but IRL the color is just a bit brighter. It's not eye searing but most certainly bright.

Isn't It fun?????
Isn't it pretty with the hibiscus???


Gotta go, summer is winding down and I need to go and enjoy it!
Ta Ta for now

Today I am wearing A England's Tristam. This polish is absolutely amazing and second to none. If I could only own one brand of nail polish it would be A England without a doubt. You might think with such quality that there would be a high price tag but you would be wrong. A England polishes, depending on the exchange rate, are usually under 10 US dollars and they are shipped free. Every color I have used can be a one coat wonder so a bottle will go a long way.

Tristam is a gorgeous denim blue with linear holographic sparkle, think of your favorite blue jeans with a little bit of pizzazz added. I usually have trouble with blues being way too bold and brashy looking on me but not Tristam. It's truly a polish that can be worn any time of the year.

Enough gushing, onto the pics

Look at the lovely holo rainbow!

No garden or flowery pics today, just a England and all their beauty. Here's a pic of my current collection of A England polishes.

Go get yourself some A England polish and have an awesome day!

Water Lily

One of the things I tend to do in the summer is spend quite a bit of time in the garden. It's so peaceful and I am always amazed by the simple beauty of flowers. Our garden takes up quite a bit of our yard and includes a koi pond in which we grow water lilies and other aquatic plants. A few years back we were visiting a friends garden who has a much bigger pond and in it I saw the most beautiful water lily ever! It's a lily that actually changes it's color, it starts off a pale pink with yellow edges and turns more of a peachy pink/coral as the days go by. Welllll I just happened to find a nail polish that is just as gorgeous, it's called Nebula and it's from an Etsy shop called Sparkles by Julie. It is the perfect color for my skin tone and it's going to be my go to polish!

First up a pic of the lily. These are in the pink phase.

Pretty huh? Don't mind the leaves they got rips in them during a recent hail storm. Now for the nails.

The pics aren't really capturing the pretty holo sparkle in the polish, it's so pretty irl.

The accent nail is another Sparkles by Julie polish called Peach Jelly Belly with some loose glitter on top.

Here's the fun bottle shot.

And here is a pic of the koi pond.

Until next time, have a good day!
