A England's Tristam

This is the 2nd time I have posted this. The 1st time it got deleted when I tried to add the tags. I'm not sure how to do it with the new blog system. So if you have any tips I would love to hear them.

I could go without posting this swatch & telling you my opinion on A England Tristam. This polish is my new favorite polish of all time! If you haven't tried this brand or do not own a bottle of it, I honestly think you should get yourself one. If all of their polishes are like Tristam they are amazing also. This polish is the perfect consistency & goes on smoothly. In all my years of painting my nails I have never used polish as nice as Tristam. I received this as a birthday gift but I definitely think this is worth the $12.50 price tag. Which would usually be hard for me to say because I do think that is quite pricey for 1 bottle of polish, especially when you can go to the drugstore & buy 6 for that price. I usually would say don't pay more than $10 for a bottle unless it files, buffs & polishes your nails for you. ;0).
Not only is A England Tristam the cream of the crop of polishes, it is a gorgeous color. I wish I could share my bottle with all of you so you could see what I am talking about. I have to say a Huge thank you to Ashley for sending this to me. Without her I probably would have never tried this brand.

Thanks again to Ashley. If you haven't checked her blog out already, please do so & let her know I sent you. I would really appreciate it. Please just copy & past her link cuz I don't want to lose this post again. Thx so much.

Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave a comment. I would love your input & opinions.

Spring Flower Mani

I recently entered a contest on FB. The rules were to do a manicure using just nail polish & create it using your non-dominate hand. Since I am right handed I had to use my left hand do a spring floral manicure. I thought the contest was very unique and a great idea. I had never heard of a contest like this one before which is why I wanted to join in the fun. I was grateful my manicure didn't turn out that bad as I thought it was going to using my left hand. I didn't win so maybe I was wrong. ;0) Here it is. Tell me what you think!

I used Zoya Bevin as the base coat. Spoiled My Silicone Popped as the side swipe base, Funky Finger for the stripes & part of flowers, Essie Mint for other part of flower & Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow for the dots.

Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave a comment. I would love your input & opinions.

Birthday Club Gifts

If you aren't in a nail Birthday Club you should join one or put one together yourself. Just get 12 people together, who love nail polish, preferably 12 people that have birthdays in each month of the year. Each month you send a little package to the Birthday person. Your Birthday month not only do you get the month off from sending a package but you receive 11 goodie boxes for your birthday. It so much fun seeing what everybody receives for their birthday & it's really fun getting nail mail 11 times during the month of your Birthday. You don't have to wait til January to start. You can start any month.
So my Birthday was in March!! These were all of the goodies that I received. Thanks to all the ladies in my amazing Birthday group!!

In love with pink pastel & love the "Love" bracelet.
