Playin' with GEL Polish: Sephora/OPI and ProGel

I purchased some gel polishes yesterday, and did a quickie mani during my lunchbreak today. Here's what I used:

Sephora by OPI Gelshine: Bare to be Different and
ProGel by Super Nail: Trophy Cup.
I bought the Gelshine from the Sephora in Deptford Mall, NJ and I bought the ProGel at the Ulta in Mays Landing, NJ.

After doing all the prep (shaping, buffing, applying the primer and applying the base coat, I cured it with the Sensational LED light I had used on a different mani. Then, I applied the "Bare to be Different" Gelshine. It's a very sheer, natural, bare color. It would be great for a French Mani.

Then, I added the "Trophy Cup" glitter/ clear top coat and cured it.

Then, back to the clear top coat, cure, and alcohol pads. Done in approximately 15 minutes!

There.... in full sun, nice and sparkly!

Quicky DIY: Green Onyx Pyramid Stud Earrings

Here's a "Quicky DIY" I did over the weekend..... I bought a cute pair of Green Onyx pyramids (the color looks a lot like jade) from Gary's Gem Garden in Cherry Hill, NJ. I also bought two silver (not silvertone) backs. I got the deal for less than $15.

I glued the backs on with heavy duty jewelry adhesive.... and they're good to go!

Fun with nail polish: Sensationail Gel Color Raspberry Wine

I have been waiting to try out gel nail color, but I didn't feel like throwing down the cash at the local nail salons, so I decided to wait it out for a great DIY option. So... at the local Walmart, waiting for an oil change, I walked over to the HBA section. Lo and behold, I saw this beauty for $49.98:
