A slightly altered Behind Closed Doors

I have wanted Deborah Lippmanns Ruby Red Slippers and Across The Universe for as long as I can remember. I found AtU, but I have never been able to find RRS. SO you can imagine my excitement when I found out about WnW Behind Closed Doors...(and then later NYX Dorothy) I love this polish...but it needed something, I frankened...(don't kill me.) I added about 1/4 bottle of BCD and added about 5 drops of OPI Crown Me Already... I LOVE how this turned out...ON TO THE PRETTIES!!!

This is over Sally Hansen Midnight Sky (because everyone does it over black. :))

Classic Jen Mani-marbles? I've lost my marbles.

This classic mani is from when I learned how to marble...It took me a couple of months, and watching lots and lots of videos to get it. But once I got it, there was no stopping me, I marbled EVERYTHING!!!
This one was one of my favorites!
This was Black, OPI Ogre the Top Blue, ChG Four Leaf Clover, and OPI Funky Dunkey.The date on this is 1/23/11

Midnight Mission & Sexagon

I never thought I would own ANY from the China Glaze kaleidoscope collection. I am lucky to get some from some swaps!!! If ever I don't know what to wear, I know I can rely on these...

No real art just some neat layering. This is China Glaze Midnight Mission and Sexagon.

Oh, and because it's a holo, and because I am feeling saucy, you get 2 pics today.

mmmmmmmm, holo-y goodness...

Classic Jen Nails Purple & Silver

Another crappy clip show.
I am going to start off by saying Kiko was easy to take super easy, so much easier than any glitter I have ever worn. I LOVE it!

So this (I think) is China Glaze VIII with some white added to make the pink and random silver and some stickers. This one is dated 10/3/10.
This one IS scary! I swear I didn't know what clean up was!!!

Classic Jen Nails First nail art EVER!

I am thinking occasionally I am going to throw some Classic Jen Manis in. I have many many pictures. I used to do my nails every night, I enjoy doing my nails everynight, but I have lots and lots of backlogged pics, and sometimes it's nice to wear a mani for more than 24 hours.

I am a nail polish freak from way back. When I was a teenager I LOVED nail polish, and bought lots and lots of it. When I got around mid 20's it just kinda slipped my mind...I would always make sure my nails were painted, though. I did mostly reds and french I remember buying bottle after bottle of Sally Hansen Flirty because that is all I would wear. Well at 33 I picked up my obsession again. This is my first attempt at nail was a slippery downhill skip into madness from there.

WARNING: Some of these classic pictures WILL be ugly.

This is Sinful Colors Dream On and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Brisk Blue. The photo is dated 9/6/10:

ooooo, layered glitter!!!

I'm a glitter freak. I get it from my mother. She likes anything and EVERYTHING that sparkles.

I usually try to do creative layering. This one is kinda creative. I like this one.

This is Orly Royal Velvet (which is beautiful by itself.) topped with a glitter I got from Barcelona (thanks, Ruth) Kiko 231

So pretty! I like it.

K, I did it...

Well, Hello there.

My name is Jen. I started a blog because I have been asked so many times if I had one. Well, now I can say, "Yes!!!"

I don't know how often I will post. I have lots of pictures. This will mainly be for my nails but there might be some other things thrown in. When we start going on rides again, I might do some of those.

Lets get down to pics, shall we?

This is my first Halloween mani for the year.

Rococo A Go-go with ChG Solar Power and just some odd looking black bats.

The poor little bat on my index finger looked like he had an accident. I will do this mani again closer to Halloween and it will be better.

Have I mentioned Halloween is my favorite holiday? :)

Thanks for reading! :D
