Hold the Mayo

Happy Cinco de Mayo! What is everyone doing to celebrate today? I painted my nails- woo! :-P However, in today's spirit, I painted them with margaritas!! :-D I also used one of the new glitter polishes that I picked up at the International Beauty Show a week and a half ago. It is awesome, it has an orange jelly base, with tiny holo glitter, stringy holo glitter and huge hexagon holo glitter!! I got it from a company called LECHAT, and the nail polish line is called Dare to Wear, so far, my experience with this brand has been great, I have no complaints!!

I used Dare to Wear Get Funky from the Disco Tech collection as a base, with Dare to Wear Inspiring surroundings for the nargartia, topped with Zoya Tangy, then shaded with Zoya Midori. For the glass, I mixed American Apparel Cotton with Color Club Pure Energy, then used the Color Club Pure Energy to shade the glass as well. For the salt on the rim, I dabbed American Apparel Cotton on with the tip of the brush along the rim. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Got a free ticket to go see Lance Burton tonight- it's gonna be maagggggic. :-P


  1. They're very beautiful...

  2. Love these! such great detail. For Cinco de Mayo I made a Mexican themed bento box. Hello Clash of the Cultures! And I plan on mixing up a few margaritas for me and my man tonight. They won't look as pretty as your nails though.


    One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, FLOOR!

  3. I love this, you're crazy talented. I'm seriously amazed by your blog- it's like actual art work on your nails!

  4. I have just discovered your blog and am very happy. After about 20 years of being a terrible nail picker with hands not worth looking at, I've realized what an important element of style good manicures are. While I will never do some of the stuff you feature here (too lazy) I am so appreciative and no doubt this blog will help me stay on track with my goal. If you have not already done it, I'd love to see you with a 30s style manicure. Also, are those your real nails or tips?

  5. Recently came across your blog...
