Nails of the Day: May 2, 2012

Hey beauty babes!

This post was totally unplanned. I was laying down watching The Real Housewives of Orange County when I suddenly had an urge to paint my nails. I have the rehearsal dinner Thursday for the wedding I am in this weekend, so I wanted to paint my nails to match the dress that I'll be wearing. I am wearing a purple water colored sundress with a purple cashmere DKNY cardigan. I haven't figured out what shoes I'll be wearing yet. The outfit is really cute. I plan on doing an 'Outfit of the Night' post Thursday or Friday to show you the completed look, with hair and makeup.

I knew I wanted to paint my nails purple, so I pulled out all of the purple polishes that I had. I decided to paint my nails with a polish that was new to my collection. My friend, Nichole from Beauty Broadcast, recently sent me a bunch of nail polishes so I decided to use one she sent me. I started off painting my nails with China Glaze - Flying Dragon, which is a neon. After the polish dried, I noticed it was kind of a matte finish, which I liked. Since I was going for more of a shiny finish, I added Sinful Colors - Frenzy over top of Flying Dragon. I'm absolutely LOVING the finished look! It is probably one of my favorite nail looks that I have done in a while.

On the left is China Glaze's Flying Dragon (neon) and on the right is Sinful Color's Frenzy. Both were sent to me by my friend Nichole! :) SC Frenzy was very hard to photograph, but it is a really pretty purple and teal fine glitter.

The pic on the left is with out the glitter. I think both are really pretty. I will definitely be rocking this look a lot in the upcoming months!

I've been really into nail polish lately; well I've always loved it but I've become a lot more into it lately. So I will definitely be doing lots more NOTD posts. 

What are you currently wearing on your nails? What are your favorite polishes for the springtime? 

Stay forever beautiful!
Love and hugs,
Keri :-P


  1. Pretty.... right now i have Sally Hansen 420 Mighty Mango with WnW 234C Hannah Pinktana on top <3

    1. Thanks! I just noticed, the teal in the glitter is the same teal that's in my dress. It's like this polish was made for my dress. Lol.

      Mighty Mango is super pretty! I love orangy type colors! Coral is one of my fav colors!!!

  2. Pretty! I love purples. I am wearing CG Flip Flop Fantasy and had a hard time capturing the neon in it in pics too! I ended up taking a picture in the shade (not direct light) and it showed up better....my camera kept trying to correct it. Cute blog, I am following:) I just started one called iheartprettypolish.blogspot.com Happy nail polishing!

    1. I will definitely check out your blog!
      Good luck with it!
      I need to pick up Flip Flop Fantasy, but I cant find it. It looks so pretty!
      I will def try taking a pic in the shade to see if it helps pick up the neon of Flying Dragon! Thanks for the tips!
