Haul, Tutorial

I went to Bed, Bath, & Beyond after work on Friday. I haven't been there since they added nail polish (or was it always there?) but anyways here is what I got:

Essie - Turquoise & Caicos, Color Club - Take me to Your Chateau, Color Club - Fashion Addict, Art Club - Silver Glitter.

I really wanted CC - Take me to Your Chateau after seeing Chanel's Spring 2010 promo pics. I will probably use it next! I also wanted Art Club - Silver Glitter because UW Football season is coming up and my old silver glitter ran out last season :(

This week Polish Hoarder Disorder's had a challenge called Color Accent. This was my entry:

I wanted to do a tutorial on how I did this, just in case anyone was wondering :)

  1. Paint all of your nails with China Glaze - Recycle
  2. While the middle finger is still wet use 4 small pink rhinestones and make a square. I used the pointy end of an orange stick dipped in top coat to pick up the rhinestones.
  3. Use big clear (white, what would you call them?) rhinstones and outline the smaller ones.
  4. Paint the tips of your pointer and ring finger with Sinful Colors - I Miss You.
  5. Cover the french tip line with the same pink rhinestones you used for the middle finger, while I Miss You is still wet.
  6. Paint over China Glaze - Recycle with Sinful Colors - I Miss You on the thumb and pinky.
  7. Cover all fingers with Top Coat & make sure to use a lot over the rhinestones so they don't fall!

These are the things I used:



  1. I haven't been to BBB since they started stocking nail polish...I need to get there, especially since I haven't been able to find any Color Club polishes.

  2. New follower...Welcome aboard

    I wish my BBB sold nail polish, your mani is gorgeous :)

  3. I just got Recycle; such a great color!

    Around here, only some BB&Bs have a beauty section, fortunately one is on my way home from work so I can use those coupons they're always sending out. :)

  4. This is a great design! I had no idea Bed Bath and Beyond sold nail polish either o.0 lol. I am now following you =]

  5. @Zara I didn't either until the other day. It felt magical. haha
    @rmcandlelight thanks!
    @KarenD Ohh I should look into that. Or maybe not.. my stash would grow at exponential speeds...
    @Veronia thanks!!
