Weekend Mani ~ Purple Nails!

IMG_20140504_134452_460Hi Loves!  This weekend’s mani is a bright purple that I LOVE!  You know by now that I love bold nails – and this is the perfect manicure for me.

I used Sally Hansen Xtreme in 190 Posh Plum and Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in 450 Wedding Crasher on the accent nail.

I had a graduation to attend so wanted something fun and bright since it started out as a rainy day.  This stunning purple and pink glitter accent nail were the perfect combination to pair with a navy outfit and chase away the rain!

What are some of your favorite summer colors?

Weekend Mani ~ Orly Mysterious Curse

IMG_20131006_140157_026I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend!  It is cold and dreary here today so I picked a dark blue/purple duo-chrome polish from Orly.  It really depends on the light as to which colors you see but most of the time I see a dark blue.

Here is the color description from Orly:

Enjoy Mysterious Curse from Orly’s Dark Shadows Collection inspired by the movie Dark Shadows. This color is a rich dark purple with touches of blue highlights that will give your nails a definite edge and leave your nails a gorgeous mystery.

Thanks for stopping by Gracious Luck and have a wonderful day!

Weekend Mani ~ Pure Ice -Touch Me Softly (velvet)

IMG_20130929_152824_092This weekend I was looking through my nail polish collection and wanted something different!  This is something I picked up last year at Walmart.  I have a fair success with this brand, some work better than others but when they are a couple dollars I figure I don’t have anything to lose!

This has a matte finish and I think it was part of a line that was a velvet finish. I love that it drives super fast but it has chipped on the edged a couple times with a good base coat.

*UPDATE* Sad day…this started chipping by that night and after trying to salvage the tips it progressively got worse and by Monday night at least 4 of my nails were over half chipped off.  I used Orly rubberized base coat – I’ not sure if that is the culprit or if it was a lack of top coat since it’s matte.  Either way – by my lunch break on Tuesday I had to take the remaining off.  I can’t stand overly chipped nails!!   Not impressed but stunning for a one day nail!
