Name me!

This is a super easy mani that is great for summer!! Nudes are the perfect polish to have on your tips!  I did a two tone mani with some shimmery polka dots down the center.  To get this look I used Essie polish in Sand Tropez, Zoya's Pandora and the dots are Orly's Rage.  I started with a day old mani of just the Pandora and to play it up and make it different I taped down the center and painted half the nail with Sand Tropez.  Then using a medium dotting tool I dotted Rage down the center.  :)
 I hope you all like this mani!! Let me know what I should name it! 
~Much love and glitter ~ Melissa~

Sally Hansen Salon Effects

Hey everyone!!  I wanted to share with you my experience with the Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail "stickers" (as I call them).  I purchased them in hopes of using them as accent nail pieces.  This was rather successful the first go around.  However, when I reached for them this morning I discovered that once you open one part of the package it is best to use them all or they dry up and will not stick to your finger nails.
I ended up using one "sticker" for two nails on most of my nails.  This worked out rather well, so I was able to get a whole manicure out of the box even though i wasted several due to being dried up...
Great concept!! I love how you can just put them on (rather easily if you are semi careful) and go.  No dry time made them an exceptional choice for me this AM before work. 
Now on to the disapointment... I think the pattern I picked out for me was not suited for me. LOL.  Lets just say I thought I was looking at BandAids on my nails all day long...
Excuse my car logo... I took this while I was waiting for someone to let me in at work this morning :D

So this obviously isnt my favorite pattern.  It was adorable as an accent nail with a corresponding color on the other nails.  But for a whole mani... not so much. 
Lesson learned spend the $8.50 on a bottle of OPI or China Glaze. :)
Everyone have a wonderful day!!
Until next time, much glitter and glam!
