2 snowey looks with Sally Hansen Candy Lace


franken w/ Fing'rs nail art paint & S.H. Candy Lace

so this is supposed to be icicles, anti-gravitational icicles, because the blue base polish is a sky blue, and they really are hanging off of nothing...... Whatever, just go with it lol!

2 thin coats of a franken I made with Wet n' Wild Blue Sapphire and white - seriously; Wet n' wild frankens turn out the best! I used Billie White which encapsulated all the shimmer in Wet n Wild Blue Sapphire. An added bonus to that is in Canada they are like 2 bucks each ( in USA .99 cents ) but many of th colors I have mixed up turned out lovely.




so; I started drawing vertical lines with the fing'rs nail art strip polish, then filled in the areas.... I had to go over 3 times to get the look I wanted. I know this would work out lovely with white nail polish and a fine brush ( thats for another day).


filled it all in, fixed up some sparse areas....


added 2 coats of Sally Hansen Candy Lace


voila!

I wanted to add this polish to my must haves, because I really love it - but I do not have any great photos of it. I love all the irregular sized chunks of flecks in it.... It is a perfect rendition of those big fluffy globs of snow that sometimes fall.


This is is 3 thin coats of Sally Hansen Candy Lace layered over a VERY sheer Icing LE no-name.

DEEZ NAILZ Polish's I couldnt live without - 2010 edition


 above Billie Blue Skies

 - this is  picture packed post -

There is more than 50 on here, I started to make a list of my top 20 polish's, but I couldn't weed out more than 30... So~ this is my 2010 list of polish's that I don't want to be without, that I would go to the store and purchase if I didn't have them or lost them, and that I would purchase again if needed.

I have a few other posts lined up in the next week or so;

MUST Have's -  polish's everyone needs
non polish things YOU NEED for fun easy nail art
my best frankens post
THE BEST things I have learned from YOU or figured out and shared w/ everyone
A hard to find or ancient polish post


I was very happy to see that most of these are part of permanent collections, and you can purchase them today - in stores or online. Some of these are Canadian only, and some are older. Many are replaceable, but if something should happen and I was without these particular polish's I would run ot the store and buy them all again
