How I Met Your Magenta & The Wonder Yellows

Good evening all! I have the last two swatches to the Wet n Wild Summer Getaway collection!

We've got The Wonder Yellows on the left and How I Met Your Magenta on the right.

These are some BRIGHT colors! Who doesn't LOVE bright summery colors??? I know I love them, mainly because they tend to make my skin look a lot more tan than it actually is!

First, The Wonder Yellows:
This is a frosty shimmery yellow. Very very sheer. I have two coats shown above, and you can still see visible free edge. I think a third coat would opaque this polish up! It applied beautifully! And the yellow shimmer is such a good color. It isn't as bright as the pink, so I wouldn't call it neon, but it is a sunshine yellow that will brighten up any day! :)

Next, How I Met Your Magenta:
This is a jelly HOT pink. It is really really bright. It has shimmer, but it isn't as shimmery as the yellow. It applied ok. It felt a bit goopy for me. Again, another sheer polish. This is two coats, above, and you can see the free edge. And again, I think a third coat would have done the trick. I'm not sure what type of finish this has. It isn't matte, but it isn't super glossy. Maybe satin? It was odd. But a top coat would shine this baby up just fine!

Here's what I did for both colors:
1 coat Sally Hansen's Double Duty base coat
1 coat Orly's base coat
2 coats of polish
No top coat.

All in all, I do like this polish line. I can see myself wearing Buffy the Vampire Slayer, How I Met Your Magenta,, and MAYYYYYBE The Wonder Yellows again. I will probably use Sage in the City as an accent color in some designs, and I really don't know if I will ever wear Fuchsiarama again. The formula was just too weird for me.

I think this collection was worth the $3.99 I spent on it. But I don't think I would have paid more.

What do you all think about these final colors? Would you wear them? I kinda like them together!

Until next time....


Thank you Lord for Blogger's auto save function. My eldest daughter, Seyhan, just turned the computer off RIGHT after I typed all of this out! I am so relieved to see nothing was deleted! *PHEW!*

Buffy the Violet Slayer

Good morningish! I have a very difficult to photograph polish to share with you today! Plus some exciting new polishes to list!

First, the polish.
Here I have Buffy the Violet Slayer by Wet n Wild. First, let me just tell you, this is not the true color of this polish! It is one of those purples that is IMPOSSIBLE to photograph. The truest color is the back of the bottle, in the shadows. It is a deep grape color. But almost a neon grape. It is stunning!!! The application of this polish was cake!

Here's what I used:
1 coat Sally Hansen's Double Duty base coat
1 coat Orly's base coat
2 coats Wet n Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer
1 coat Orly's Won't Chip top coat.

These photos make this color look SO much more blue than it actually is. And you can't see how insanely glossy this polish is! It honestly looks like I have colored shiny plastic on my nails! It is so pretty! I love love love this color/polish!!

It went completely opaque in just two coats! And even though you can kind of see brush strokes in the photos, there are NONE in sight in real life. I wish I could have each and every single one of you come visit me via teleportation just for one day so you could see the true beauty of this polish!

Again, this is SO much bluer in the photos. Bummer.

So, last night, my neighbor/friend came over to drop off some polish! I am doing her nails once a week and I told her she can pay me in nail polish! I think that's a great deal!! ;)

Any who, she gave me 8 polishes that she's had and isn't using any more. I felt like it was Hanukkah in April!!! Here's what she brought over:
Sally Hansen's Burgundy Bungalow
NYC's Wing it Wine Creme
Petites Cranberry
NYC's Black Lace Creme
Sally Hansen's Flawless
OPI OPI on Collins Ave
OPI Big Hair, Big Nails


The coveted
OPI My Private Jet!!!! I have been wanting this polish for a long time! And she had the right formula with the holo sparkles! YUM YUM YUM!!!!

So, of course I couldn't wait to use My Private Jet for my first time ever! I added it to one nail of this manicure.

 Look how gorgeous it is! And the crazy part....The purple on my ring finger is VERY close to what BTVS looks like in real life!! Weird, huh? In real life, MPJ one top of BTVS is much darker than this. But crazy gorgous! I think I will have to add MPJ to all my nails!!! <3 <3 <3 I am in LOOOOOVE!!! So thank you Jessi!!! <3 <3 <3

What do you all think of this manicure? Do you own OPI My Private Jet? Which formula do you have???

Until next time....

Good afternoon!! I am continuing my swatches of the Wet n Wild Summer Getaway collection. And I must say, this one I am about to show you is a favorite. is the name of this polish, and I must say, I am loving it. It is a glitter jelly polish, so it is extremely sheer. Luckily this only took three coats to become pretty opaque! I love love love the color, and I love love love all the glitter. You all really need to see this one in real life. It is sooo sparkly.

(Excuse my boo boo on my pinky. I covered it up, cause it looks kinda yuck.)

Yum yum yum! Glitter! It is such a fun shade of orange, and I felt like I was ready to go to the beach....if there was a beach near me.....which there isn't.....cause I live in Oklahoma. *Sigh*

Here's what I did:
1 coat Sally Hansen's Double Duty top coat
3 coats
No top coat seen here.

It is pretty gritty, so I did later on add some Seche Vite. I have a feeling this polish is going to be a pain in my behind to remove! Glitter always is.

As of right now, I am in love with only one of the polishes out of the collection...and this is it. I still have three more to try, so maybe my mind will be changed. (I wish I could say I love two of these polishes...but that green just does NOT look good on me. *cries*)

What do you all think of this color? The glitter? Do you like glitter polishes, or do you avoid them purely because the pain of removal??

Until next time...

Good afternoon! I have an interesting polish to share with you all.

As you know from my previous post, I am swatching Wet n Wild's Summer Getaway collection.

Here is FuchsiaRama:

 Ok, so I do not like this polish at all. I'm not sure if they were trying to go for a matte finish or not. It dries really weird. And it doesn't dry all that fast, once you have a few coats of it on. This is:
1 coat Sally Hansen's Double Duty base coat
1 coat Orly's base coat
3 coats FuchsiaRama
And no top coat.

I had some issues with my cotton getting all over my fingers, which is why my ring and pinky look messed up.

But I didn't know how to react to this polish. The application was ok. A little thin in the formula department. But as it started drying, it started this matte thing. Which I suppose isn't a bad just wasn't what I was expecting. This photo makes the color look a lot more pink than it actually is. It is MUCH more purple in real person.

I also had a hard time keeping the polish from going bald when applying. The brush was what made it semi ok to do. It is a thicker brush.

I honestly don't know about this. It took a while to become opaque, hence the three coats. And even then, I don't feel like it has great coverage. It is streaky and bald in places. I think if I wear this polish again, I will start with a purple base coat, then apply only one or two coats of this stuff...and probably add a glossy top coat. I just am not crazy with their attempt at matte.

What do you all think???

Until next time....

Sage in the City

Hello nail bloggers/readers!! I hope you all are having a fantastic day!!

Yesterday I picked up a little something at my local Walgreens. Wet n Wild came out with their Summer Getaway line, put the polishes in tiny 5mL bottles, and packaged them all together for $3.99. Great price for me! I also really enjoy smaller bottles. That way if I hate the color, I don't feel bad for spending more on one polish.

 They all have super clever names...or at least I'm sure Wet n Wild thought they were clever. I only have an issue with one of the names.

In this kit you get:
Buffy the Violet Slayer: This is a gorgeous purple color.
I haven't tried all of these...well, honestly, I've only tried one, but I'm planning on swatching all of these through out the week. This is a darker purple color, that appears to have lots of shimmer. Looks like an orange jelly with lots and lots of orange glitter. I'm excited to try this one!

FuchsiaRama: This one looks more purple to me in the bottle. It looks like a creme polish...but who knows, it might lighten up to a dark fuchsia. (I love this name because I am a huge Futurama fan. lol)

How I Met Your Magenta: This honestly does not look magenta to me. It is hot pink. It is a cute pink, with lots of shimmer. I can't wait to swatch this one for ya.

The Wonder Yellows: This one looks to be a yellow frost with lots of shimmer. I'm excited about this one too..but I have a feeling I will need a more opaque polish to go under it.

And finally, the color that I have swatched for you today:

Sage in the City.

First of all: I do not wear green. I don't think it looks good on my fingers or with my skin. I have an olive skin I feel like it draws out the green in my skin color.

Second: Nice try Wet n Wild. Trying to be so clever made you look like you're colorblind. THIS IS NOT SAGE. This is almost lime green! We'll call it a dark lime green. I do like this color, but the name really bothers me. Whoever made this color and was like "Hey guys, let's call this SAGE IN THE CITY! Get it? A spin off of SEX IN THE CITY! GENIUS!" is an idiot. They could have called it GLEE with lime, or Lime and Order. Or what about The LIME word. Sigh.

Anyway, on to the polish.

I found this polish to be awfully thick. And it left visible brush strokes. The good part was it only took two coats to become completely opaque. I really really really DO like this color! A lot! I wish it looked good on me, cause I would wear it all the time!!

All of these photos were taken with my it is night time. (I'm going to be super busy this weekend, so I am swatching and writing my posts and post dating them for the actual day I want it posted. Pretty genius Blogger. Kudos to you for making this function for us crazy busy moms.)

I also think their Fastdry technology isn't really that fast. They advertise that one coat will dry in 60 seconds. But with my one coat of Sally Hansen's Double Duty base coat, two coats of Sage in the City, and one coat of Seche Vite, I don't feel like it dried all that fast. After a few minutes, it felt dry, but was dentable. But then again, it was a pretty thick polish. Maybe I got a bad batch.

What do you all think of this color? Do you think I should brave green, and wear it more often? Is it just my eyes that see how terrible it looks on me??

Until next time....


My Mercury Twilight took a few hours before chipping. :( Boo. But I really think it was because I had my hands in water a lot.

Hologram Effect

Good afternoon nail polish lovers!

Do you love hologram polishes? Who doesn't? I know I am in loooove with hologram effects!! I have a hologram manicure to share with you!

I picked up Layla's Hologram Effect polish in Mercury Twilight, as I'm sure you all know from a previous post. I decided to layer it upon itself, and build up a pure hologram manicure.

Here is Mercury Twilight by itself, in my house with the flash on.

My process:
1 coat Sally Henson's Double Duty base coat
4 coats Layla Mercury Twilight
and no top coat for the naked hologram manicure.

I love AND hate this polish.
Here's why:
I love the effect it does. I love the rainbow. LOOOVE the rainbow. But the polish is extremely streaky. And building it up was a pain in my booty. I had to basically glob on this polish. If I applied it like normal polish, it would create bald spots. Anyone else have this problem with this polish? Any tips/tricks? Luckily this polish isn't uber thick, so 4 coats feels like one.

Here is the gorgeousness in sunlight. I really do like how this polish looks once it is on. But fighting with it, just made me wonder if it was REALLY worth the $15.50 I spent on it.

Seriously...if you guys have any insight on this polish...I need to know how to manage it better!!!

Seeing how beautiful it is, really makes me sad that I spent over 30 minutes just building it up.

After I let that dry, which was literally no time flat...I added a design.

This polish dries insanely fast. Like...crazy fast. There was no wait time. Even when I globbed it on into a thick coat.

I then used my bundle monster plate BM-209 and added a design with my Konad Special Polish in black.

After adding the design, I used a pretty thick coat of Seche Vite to protect the stamping. The Seche Vite did react weird with the hologram polish. I think it just dulled it down a tad. Not a whole lot, in my opinion. I like my nails to be pretty glossy, unless I am shooting for matte. So, adding the Seche Vite was a good move in my book.

This design makes me think of fishnet stockings. LOVE IT.

All in all, even after fighting with Mercury Twilight, I really like this manicure. I like how fast it dried. I love the stamping. I love love love the rainbow. I love everything about it. Now I will be putting this polish to the test...I haven't worn it long enough to know how long it'll take to chip. So I will be reporting that info on my next post.

I would really like some feedback about this Mercury Twilight polish. Do you own it? Do you own the other colors from this line? Do you love it or hate it?

Until next time....

Ruby Pumps

Hello all!!! I have a fabulous polish to share with you!!!

First, let me say this: I do not normally turn to red polish. Why? It is a pain to clean up, it stains your nails, and I tend to think it is boring by itself.

Now....let me tell you why this polish, Ruby Pumps by China Glaze, has changed my mind about red polishes FOREVER.

China Glaze Ruby Pumps is fabulous. The red is such a great shade. The glitter is glitter-tastic! And surprisingly, the clean up was CAKE! I love the formula to this polish. It just glides on. The brush is perfect...even for this tiny bottle! I had picked up this 3.6 mL bottle at Sally's Beauty Supply a few weeks ago. It was in the clearance bin for $1.69. It then was discounted even further, and I got this bad boy for $0.49!!!! Can't beat that price!!! Now that I have tried it, I seriously need to pick up a bigger bottle!!!

Now in the photos, this manicure is a few days old, so I have a few chips, scuffs, and tip wear. But I am happy with how well this polish has held up! I couldn't bring myself to add anything to this manicure, for fear of taking away from this gorgeous polish. I can't even describe how much this polish sparkles.

It appears to be a red jelly polish with lots and lots of glitter. I can't tell if the glitter is actually red or silver....but I am assuming red. Here's what I did:
2 coats Sally Hansen's Double Duty Base Coat
2 coats China Glaze Ruby Pumps
1 coat Seche Vite

Can you believe I got this opaque in TWO coats??? Amazing!

This is officially my go to nail polish! I am sooo in love!!! <3

Have you guys tried Ruby Pumps? What do you think of it? I have read mixed reviews on this polish...but people who hate it really haven't explained why. Maybe I need to search better?

Until next time....

This is why I don't water marble.

Have you ever wondered why Manicure Mommy has never featured a water marble manicure? Water marbled nails look so cool, so fresh, so neat. But I just have never featured one.

Why, you ask?

This is why.

I have tried this technique SEVERAL times. I can't even count on both hands how many times I've tried to make this work for me. But I just cannot get it to work. It ALWAYS looks like this.

Maybe I use too much polish? Maybe my water here in Oklahoma sucks for this technique. Maybe I am just not patient enough to do this. Whatever the case is....I SUCK AT WATER MARBLED NAILS!

I can't even get all the stinkin blue off my skin. I should now be called Violet, who is turning Violet Violet! I just couldn't stay away from the flavor changing gum...or at least my fingers couldn't.

I cannot even describe how embarrassing this is for me. I am embarrassed that every single time I try to water marble, my nails look like pure A grade crap.

I'm not even going to get into what polishes I used, because it turned out crappy anyway. I will be taking this off as soon as I get off this computer. Barf!

What can I do to improve my water marble manicure?? I NEED HEEEEEEEELP!!!

I'm sure I will post again later, as I can't stand to have naked nails.

Until next time....(which will hopefully be less of a failure....)

Skin/hand care

Good morning nail bloggers!!!! I want to share something pretty important to me, with you.

My skin/nail moisturizing ritual...if you will. I take keeping care of my skin and nails pretty seriously. Moisturizing your skin can keep you looking young, and makes you feel so much better. I have a few products to share with you all. I know this isn't a polish post..but I find this equally as important.

Here's what I do every day:

I use Solar Cuticle Oil every single day, several times a day. I keep it at my desk, and move it around the house so I have access to it at all times. I would like to buy another cuticle oil to keep in my purse that isn't a liquid, but I just haven't had the time to search for one. Any suggestions?

I moisturize with EOS ( evolution of smooth) nourish revitalizing care; hand and body lotion. I found this lotion at Walgreens one day. It was on sale, and I had heard great things about EOS, so I gave it a shot. I love this stuff. First, it smells amazing. I love love love the scent. I put it on all over my body every morning after showering. I wish I could find a body spray that smells exactly like this lotion. I also use it through out the day as needed. I like to have soft hands, so I tend to use a lot of lotion. 

Every night, I use Julep's glycolic hand scrub before bed. I really like this product. It exfoliates my hands but it isn't too rough. Too much exfoliation can be bad for your skin. This has the right grit to it. It is a great great product. I've had it for a little while, and I totally suggest it. It is safe enough to use for every hand washing, but I like to save my product, so I only use it once a day. At night is the best time for me. I wash with it before I put on my nightly oils and lotions.

Every night, after scrubbing with Julep's glycolic scrub, I use Creativespa massage oil. I have had this oil for a long time. It came in my Creativespa pedicure and manicure kit. The kit includes a lot of products, that I will share with you in a future post. I only use those products every other week. They're a bit harsher in the exfoliation department for me to use every day. Back to the oil, I love love love this oil. As you can see, below, I still have a lot left! I use maybe a drop or two on my hands every night before bed. It is oil, so it will make your hands feel oily, but it really does moisturize your skin very very well. When I use this oil, I skip my cuticle oil. Mainly because I don't feel like need to double oil up my hands. This oil will moisturize your cuticles as well as all of your skin. I use my EOS lotion right after the oil. I only do this at night, because I don't want to leave oil smudges all over my house. And it does make your hands slippery. Plus I like that this stuff will work while I get my beauty rest.

This is my daily routine. It has helped my skin and my cuticles so much! I really swear by all of these products. I can't promise that all of these products are available to public purchasers. My Creativespa supplies were purchased at State, back before I let my cosmetology license expire. I really should go back to school for the X amount of hours to reinstate my license...but I just don't have time right now. Maybe one day...but I do not want to work in a salon just wasn't my cup o tea.

I hope this has helped all of you. If you try it and it works for you, let me know! If it doesn't work for you, let me know! But please remember, it is SO important to moisturize your skin and nails. Especially if you use 100% pure acetone!

Until next time....

Jacket Buttons

Good evening fellow nail bloggers! I have a fantastic manicure for you!

I asked my daughter, Seyhan, what she thought my nails looked like, and she said jacket buttons. :) I think she's right.

I really really really like this manicure! Here's what I did:
1 coat Sally Henson's Double Duty base coat
1 thick coat Pure Ice Black Rage
I used Color Club Gingerbread Man for the dots with my dotting tool
1 coat Essie Matte About You

I love love love my Pure Ice Black Rage. If you use enough the first time, you don't need to do a second coat! The application is always a breeze, the brush is perfect, and the formula is amazing. I use Black Rage more often than any other polish in my stash of 70.

I only have flash photos to share with you all. I didn't get a chance to take photos this afternoon. My daughter, Zoey, has a therapist who comes to our house to work with her. And that took up a lot of our time today.

I am really happy to report how well the Gingerbread Man polish did with Matte About You. I was afraid it wouldn't look good, since it is more of a foil type polish. It took on the matte, but stayed glittery...which is the only way I can explain it. I think I will have a hard time taking this polish off.

I really wanted something more edgy, but to stay with the dots, since my dotting tools are being severely neglected.

I am a huge fan of black and gold combos. Something about the two together makes me wanna dance. Lol.

I also have yet to run into any problems I've read about online about Matte About You. I read the reviews on before purchasing it, and some people say that the matte doesn't last long, and ends up shiny in a few days...I haven't had that problem. Others said it chipped within hours...Again, no problems here. I also have two kids, and I'm currently the only parent...and mine holds up pretty well. I never expect a manicure to stay perfect more than two days. I expect tip wear and chips. I'm really rough on my hands. Another reviewer said that it started peeling from the middle?? Whaaat? Maybe they got a bad batch, cause I've never ever ever seen it do that!!! Maybe I'm not that picky about my if it does end up shinier...I don't notice it at all.

I hope I have given you a good reason to go out and buy a matte top coat! I know I don't regret my purchase! <3

Until next time....

Good morning!! Sorry that I have been MIA. My husband left for deployment on Friday. So it has been a little rough around my house. My eldest has been acting out negatively from this it has been pretty hard on momma!

I do have a pretty cute manicure for you all today. This manicure is a few days old, so I do have tip wear and a chip and broken corner on my index finger, all thanks to peeling potatoes.

Here's what I did:
2 coats of Sinful Colors Folly
Then I took every orange/coral/salmon/light pink/yellow I owned and used my dotter tools to add the dots.
Then I did a thick coat of Seche Vite.

I wanted the dots to be flat..and not look like paint over paint. I think I achieved that with the thick coat of Seche Vite.

I really like Folly. It could have gone on in one coat...which is a win in my book!!

I have never done polka dots before. I wanted them to be different sizes...and I think I did a pretty good job for my first polka dot job. :)

What do you all think? Do you like the color combo? The dots? Folly??

Until next time....

Let Your Garter Down

Yesterday, I was at Ulta, and I saw a mini set of Ulta polishes for $9.99. I couldn't help myself (especially since I was there to exchange a $10 polish!) so I picked it up. It is called Lust in Lace. And let me tell you that I am happy with my purchase!

My daughter asked me to use the blue polish today, so that is just what I did.

Ok, here is what I did:
1 coat Sally Hansen's Double Duty base coat
1 coat Orly's base coat
2 coats Ulta Let Your Garter Down
1 coat Seche Vite

Let Your Garter Down is a black based polish with blue glass flecks. I personally think it is gorgeous. I love wearing black/dark polishes, and having that extra color flash makes me oh so happy!

I do have a pros/cons list to share with you.

  • Beautiful color! I don't have anything like it.
  • The clean up was unbelievably easy. Usually with darker colors it is a nightmare...but this polish cleaned up so fast and soooo easy! Love that!
  • The blue is subtle...which I love. I hesitate on blue polishes...I don't know why.
  • It was opaque in two coats! Usually with black based polishes like this, I have to do a coat of my Pure Ice Black Rage. But not with this polish! This baby is all by herself!
  • Drying time was a pain. I mean, it wasn't HORRIBLE...but I felt like it was tacky longer than any other polish.
  • Let me just tell you how much I HATE square polish tops. I HATE HATE HATE them! (Right now my Seyhan would be saying "OHHHH MOOOOM!!! YOU SAID A BAD WOOOORD! We don't say hate in our I'm sure you can see how much I dislike square polish tops. lol.)
  • Because the polish bottle is small, I felt like the brush was shorter than a normal small bottle. I don't know. It just felt like it was weird in my hand.

As you can tell, there aren't as many cons...which makes me happy. I'm really excited to swatch and share the other 3 colors with you!!

 This is in the sun.

  The clean up, as stated above, was so incredibly easy, that I went a little overboard on my index finger. Lol. And don't get me started on my clean up brush. Let's just say that my children like to smash my paint brushes into every hard surface possible....

What do you guys think about this polish? Would you wear it? I think it would be a cool black to start with when doing a galaxy manicure! Ohh! I just might have to try that! <3

Until next time....

Gingerbread Man

The other day I went to Sally's Beauty Supply and I found a gem in the clearance boxes!!! Color Club's Gingerbread Man! Oh holy cow, do I loooove this polish.

As I was applying it, I thought I smelled gingerbread cookies. But I thought I was just psyching myself out, because of the name. But the more I smelled it, I had to google it. And sure enough! This is a scented polish from their 2011 Christmas line. I am SO glad I picked this one up for less than $3!

Now, I wanted to take photos of just the gingerbread man, but my hubby distracted me as I was doing my nails and I started stamping before I took pictures. But I think the stamping is subtle enough for you guys to see the beauty of Gingerbread Man. Sorry for not paying more attention. Boo on me.

I used Fingerpaint's Tiffany Imposter for the stamping. I'm really impressed with how opaque the polish was for stamping! Sometimes it is hard to find a stamping polish that isn't Konad's Special Polish.

Here's what I did:
1 coat Sally Hansen's Double Duty base coat
1 coat Orly's base coat
2 coats Color Club Gingerbread Man
1 coat Seche Vite
Stamping with Tiffany Imposter and Bundle Monster plate BM-223
1 coat Seche Vite

I have never used a Color Club polish before. I've heard wonderful things about their polish, but I have never been lucky enough to run into this brand until the other day. I have yet to find a local store that carries this brand.

Gingerbread Man is amazing. The formula is beautiful. It is completely opaque in 2 thin coats. Loooove that! It seems to be a foil type polish...which I love. My other gold is so thin, it takes like 3 or 4 coats to become opaque...and it doesn't have this foil goodness.

I will say, Gingerbread Man did take a while for it to dry. I messed up a few nails...but they aren't THAT noticeable. I don't know if it is because this polish is older or if it is just how it is made. But to me, it doesn't matter. I will take a few screwed up nails for this gorgeous color!

Loooooove Tiffany Imposter. One of my favorite polishes! <3

What do you all think about this manicure? Would you try it? If any of you know where I can find the rest of this Christmas line, let me know. I love having my fingers smell like cookies! <3

Until next time...
