Feeling unoriginal...

The more nail polish blogs I find, the more I find that my ideas aren't exactly original...but I guess there's only so much you can do in a little space without it coming off as completely tacky.  So here's an old manicure I did last year and it seems like everyone has done this exact manicure within the last month or so...

Yeah grey creme and sparkles.   I got quite a few compliments on it...classy and simple.  I used 2 coats of Revlon Silver topped with one coat of Revlon Belle.  I picked up this polish in a 5 pack at Winners for around $12.  I find Revlon polishes to be very thin but they have some great colours.

Here's another apparently unoriginal design I did.  I saw on another blog this morning that someone did almost the exact same design with almost the same colours.  I have a backlog of previous mani's that I will post over time but I didn't really want people to think I was just copying exactly what everyone else was doing because then what's the point of having my own blog?

Excuse me while I shit my pants here but the mailman just walked in with my Zoya order!  And holy crap these things are gorgeous!  I took part in the 3 free promo from Zoya because I have a sister in the US - total cost to me was $11US.  Sorry Yes I Can Can, but Ivanka will be my bitch for tonight! 

Sorry about that LOL.  I wasn't expecting it to get here in under a week! So anyways, for the above mani I used OPI DS Signature ($8 at Winners), Sally Hansen Celeb City (fantastic stamping polish btw, found at Walmart for about $3), and some random black creme polish.  Top coat is definitely Seche Vite ($9 at Sally Beauty Supply) on this one.  I texted this one to the Princess of Poo who replied 'Love it!' but I didn't keep this on long as it's too 'porn star' for me.  And another angle because I really like the design:

So now I will leave you with a parting shot of my new toys.  Say hello to Ivanka, Charla and Crystal...
