I topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat to give t that lovely Christmas gloss!

Only 8 more days until Christmas!!!

Fun picture for the day:

My friend/coworker Nat and I went to lunch today, and I had to pick up my purse from my house, so he decided he wanted to see the nail polish stash, and have his picture taken with it... so here you all go. *cover your eyes!!!!* lol jk Nat, you're not THAT hideous. ;-/


  1. O:

  2. Now that I know where everything is, I will be offering celebrity Daily Nail tours! Hope ya don't mind the extra traffic that will be coming through. My picture on the's like I'm famous!

  3. You're so talented! It's actually a lot of fun to read your posts every day. I showed my mom your designes, and she loves them. :)

    And I have an idea for a nail design: different colored iPods. Just a suggestion, though.

  4. Nail design suggestion: superheroes "logos", like superman & stuff :)

  5. gifted in the "wears a helmet to school" sense maybe.

  6. Wow! So adorable--that must have taken forever!

  7. i have an idea for a christmas one although im sure you already have the next days planned out, santa on one thumb, the eight reindeer, and then a sleigh on the other thumb

  8. Thank you everyone! (Except Patrick- Ass! :-P ya big jerk- when I see you next, yer goin' DOWN! :-P)

    Lena- I have that one planned already for closer to Christmas!! Thanks for submitting the idea though!! Plus- you forgot Rudolph- there are NINE reindeer!! 8>o <----my ascii version of rudolph.

  10. Love, love, love, love, your gifts nails design. From your picture if your coworker Ned is not careful he might gets pull in and have his nails done too.lolol.. :-) Take care and keep warm.
    From your viewer from Oregon.

  11. Love all the polishes on your dining room table :) Mine have taken over our coffee table (and I accidently got a little polish remover on it too... not good!).

    I love this design!! the gifts are too cute!

  12. I think you're the reason I am officially addicted to nail polish. Thank you <3 You're so talented!

  13. These are my favorites of the Christmas Nails, so far. There are so many different designs and color combos! Awe inspiring. How long did this take you? So cool....
    And I just graduated from the dining room table, and plastic bins! I had been eyeing the "Helmer" cabinet from Ikea for a while, and googled it, and it turns out another polish blog says it's great for nail polish! They are right! Best part is- it's metal, not plastic, and it's only 40 bucks! Needless to say, before the computer shut down, I was already on my way out the door... got it, and I LOVE it! Easy to put together, sturdy, polishes fit well- I'll second the recommendation of the "Helmer", and suggest it for any polish-a-holics who haven't given Santa their lists yet. And no, I don't work for Ikea...

  14. Thanks everyone!!!

    Rita- OMG< I want that cabinet!!! Wish the nearest IKEA wasn't 4 hours away in LA!! :(

  15. Ugh. 4 hours. If you really want it, maybe Ikea online?

  16. I just want to thank you for sharing your information and your website, this is simple, but good article I have ever seen, I like it, and I learned something today! Thanks!
