Weekend Mani { Pink & Gold }

PicsArt_1400537920225Hi Loves!  This weekend’s mani is in one of my favorite colors its Sephora by OPI’s Henna-thing is possible.  Its coming across more pink in the pictures, but its actually a more magenta color and bright pink in sunlight.

On my accent nail is a Sephora Formula X nail polish in Out of Sight.  (I found this a couple weeks ago in my Sephora inside JC Penney’s on clearance for $3.50!)  I love the chunky glitter, however its easy to catch the glitter if you don’t press it down as you apply it and use a thicker top coat.

Weekend Mani ~ Arm Candy { Sephora by OPI }

IMG_20140401_080626_767Hi Loves,

This weekend’s mani is back to a bright color.  It was in the 70’s over the weekend, and I was ready for a bright color!  This is Sephora’s – Sephora by OPI in Arm Candy.  It is very sheer – this is two coats, and you can still see through it.  Instead of adding more layers, I just left it on the more sheer side.

Thanks for dropping by Gracious Luck & have a wonderful day!

Weekend Mani ~ Shopping Frenzy {sephora by OPI}


Hi Lovelies!  I am so bummed that Sephora discontinued this line because I LOVED the formula and colors of these polishes.  Its a shocking bright fuschia pink with some blue undertones.  (I’m sorry I’m horrible at describing colors & scents!) But its pretty vivid and I love it.

I was going through my polish collection last night and wanted a bright & happy color to kick off the week with.  Its been so gloomy here that this is just what I needed!

I’m sure there is a dupe some where for this color and if I come up with one – I’ll definitely let you know since I’m half through my bottle! Continue reading

Weekend Mani ~ Halloween Inspired

PicsArt_1382890797658Hi Lovelies!  This week’s mani is Halloween-ish inspired!  I have to add the “-ish” because I work in a professional environment so have to keep nails semi-subtle.  First I started with Sephora by OPI’s Seriously Its a Naan-Issue which to me is a beautiful, dark, blue toned purple.  In darker light it can come off as black but to me its not quite as harsh as black but still makes a statement.

Next I couldn’t decide which accent I wanted so I picked two!  First I used the same sliver shatter/crackle top coat as last week and then I chose Maybelline’s Color Show Polka Dots Polish in Clearly Spotted – I loved playing with this so much that instead of using it as an accent nail, I used it on all of my nails!  Its very fun and different than anything I’ve done before.  I love it! 🙂
I hope you have a wonderful Halloween week!

Weekend Mani


Hi Lovelies!  I’m sorry this post is behind, I spent the weekend working and then was sick but I’m back and on the mend!  I did manage to get my nails done before I took family pictures on Sunday and wanted to share one of my favorite fall colors.  You might have figured out by now that I love dark and bold polishes but also love red polishes.  This week’s mani features Sephora by OPI (I stocked up when they were on clearance!) in Ruby Without a Cause (opaque chrome wine-burgundy with two tone effect) which is still available if you want to order your own!  This is slightly misleading because its a duo-chrome with gold/olive green in it and in the bottle but applied I’m mainly seeing the ruby.  Maybe next time I’ll try to mix it up better.  On my accent nail I’m using a silver shatter polish that I had but never tried before.  I thought it was fun to mix it up for a change.  *Please ignore the chips, I took this picture yesterday so it was 3 days into the mani and I didn’t coat my tips like I normally do!*

Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my weeeknd mani from Sunday!

Weekend Mani ~ Sephora by OPI ~ Meet for Drinks


Its time for a weekend mani!  I’ve missed doing these because I find doing my nails to be a sort of relaxing process!  I took the past week off because I’m still trying to get rid of a little staining on my nails.  I have been drooling over all of the fall colors I’m seeing in the magazines and online so thought it’s time for my first “fall” mani!  This color is Sephora by OPI’s Meet for Drinks and unfortunately it’s no longer available so I can’t provide you with Sephora’s description.  However I’d say its a vampy dark red with a touch of burgundy to it.  I can’t stop staring at my nails – I saw on instagram after posting that someone used a gold glitter on accent nails and it looked amazing.  I might have to buy some in the future and try that.  I also see that matte nails are coming back so might try that with this color as well.

Thanks for stopping by Gracious Luck today!
