Flashback Friday Christmas!

Hi, everyone! Happy Friday! Tonight we’re taking the nugget on a holiday train ride. We’ve been going for the past 5 or 6 years and has become a staple in our holiday traditions. It’s good family fun! Saturday night is Game Night at our house. It’s been a long time since I’ve had one and it’ll be good to catch up with friends.

So, this Flashback Friday is from about 4 or 5 years ago. It was right after I started swatching for Gothic Gala Lacquers. She had a really lovely Christmas set including the two polishes I used in this mani.

Please forgive the terrible picture quality. Blue Christmas is a wonderfully squishy blue jelly with blue and silver glitters. Silver Bells is a typical silver polish, but very well done. Gothic Gala pumped out sophisticated polishes like no one’s business. This is one of the very first Christmas nail arts I had ever done.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Zoya Rayne with Nail Art

Hi, everyone! How’s your Monday going? I can’t believe it’s going to get up to 90 degrees here in Pennsylvania. These are the days when my makeup just melts off of my face, so it’s a perfect excuse to hide in the house, lol.

I’m still waiting for my laptop to get fixed, so today is another throwback mani from at least 2 years ago.

This lovely mani is brought to you by Zoya’s Rayne.

I am pretty sure this needs about 3 coats for opacity. For some reason, the info from my Facebook page wasn’t attached to any of the pictures, which is how I know what’s what from so long ago.

If you have been following my blog (or FB or Instagram) you know I love my studs and rhinestones! I know they aren’t practical for everyday wear, but I just love the way they look! These are from Born Pretty.

I love making rhinestones look like they’re in an actual jewelry setting. I use regular top coat before applying them, and then coat them over with top coat. They stay on pretty well that way. If you wanna get some doodads from Born Pretty, you can use my code-LESLIEW10 for 10% off of your order on regular priced items.
