Rainbow Mani: China Glaze Cirque du Soleil It's a Trap-Eze

This is not the first rainbow mani I've done—see my previous posts: Rainbow Sherbet and Rainbow Marbled. But this was definitely the easiest. Just a few coats of this white-based rainbow glitter then a glossy topcoat and you're good to go.  If you like it then better act fast—I noticed this was the only sold-out shade in the limited edition Cirque du Soleil display!

The Winter Blues: NYC Water Street Blue with Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Showgirl Chic

Here's a follow-up to my blue mani post yesterday (link) I guess I've got the winter blues because I'm craving all shades of blue lately!

Nicole by OPI Stand by Your Manny and On the Katwalk

Both of these Nicole by OPI shades are from tie-in collections. The first, a pale opaque blue, is from the Modern Family collection, and Katwalk is from the Kardashian Kolor collection (now on clearance at my local CVS.)

Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips—The Bold Rush

Gold and purple are such a regal combination. Here's a beautiful offering from SH' latest limited edition collection.  

Emerald Nails: Sally Hansen Mint Sprint and Piggy Polish Embrace Adventure

I'm really feeling this emerald trend—the jewel tone is especially beautiful for winter. Here are two nice options. I love the Piggy Polish shade—it has a little more shimmer to it. The price is a bit higher ($7.50 at Ulta.)

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Mint Sprint is a great value (just $3.59 at Target). Of the two it has a more glossy, satin finish. I love this product because it applies evenly and the opaque shades require only one coat.

The Well-Dressed Nail: Sally Hansen Pink Satin

Here's a simple black French manicure. This metallic rose shade from SH is beautiful and unique with many possibilities. Try layering gold glitter on it—gorgeous, I'm sure!

Sephora by OPI And a Cherry on Top

Nothing like a gorgeous, sexy red mani for Valentine's Day. This shade has a sheer jelly-like finish. To add some depth I layered it with coats of a glossy topcoat. In the middle of the layers I added one coat of the sheer glittery shade Luxe and Lush from China Glaze.
