KB Shimmer Lilac Dreams

On this rare bright sunday sunny day in WI, I finally managed to score some photos in the sun!

I painted my nails KB Shimmer Lilac Dreams.

This was my base color Sinful Colors - Gone Platinum.
I already painted the pinky, they went together quite perfectly.

I really love this color but I wanted a little more. So I decided to paint a diagonal stripe on with Zoya Storm.

Pardon my cuticles, apparently one touch with acetone and they're ruined for days :(

Polish Zone

I'm almost finished with my polish zone. 

I made four foam board racks, each holds about 120 polishes, and I finally hung them on the wall!

So now I can sit at my own polish desk and do my nails while still watching tv woo!

One "leg" of the desk is a cubical which is awesome because it's the perfect place to storage all my polish stuff.

I'm probably going to hang the mini cubical right next to the bigger one for extra storage. Plus I can make foam shelves for it and storage more polish on.

If anyone was curious I bought my desk at Ikea, well the top and the two legs. The cubical is from Target and it happened to be the perfect height!

I am so disappointed I cannot wear all of these colors on all of my fingers all at once ! I wanted to try the pastel colors first and was trying to think of a way to use more than one at once so I decided to use Spring Training as my base and layer Iris My Case over the top. I really like how it turned out!

I used Sally Hansen Xtreme - Mint Sorbert as a base coat, its the best base color to use for Spring Training.
