Happy New Year!

Layering Order:
3 coats Pop Beauty Violet Glitz
various glitters
1 coat Glitter Tamer
Barielle Manicure Extender

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Cut it Out, black and white flowery fun!

I didn't want the year to pass me by without trying these.  I found them super easy to apply, and it's true what they say, you can get 2 manicures out of one packet.  However, I only got one because I opened the first packet just "to see them" and the next day they were useless :/  They fit really nicely! and I would definitely try it again.  This trend quickly caught on in 2011, although I was hessitant at first, I'm glad I took the plunge.

BB Couture Dragon's Breath

For some reason when I added OPI Sugarplum Yum to this red, it looked like I added green holiday sprinkles.  Trust me on this one, the combo is perfect for the season, even though it's hard to tell by the pictures.

Layering Order:
Poshe Fast Drying Basecoat
2 coats BB Couture Dragon's Breath
2 coats OPI Sugarplum Yum
no topcoat in these pictures

Have you ever heard of the brand J2? well now you have!

This is another find at another random Beauty Supply store.  I think it cost around four dollars, the glitter was not too dense, but it was very unique.

Layering Order:
Poshe Fast Drying Basecoat
2 coats Ulta Duty Free Shopping Spree
2 Coats J2 Purple Dazzle
