Viva La Nails Review Week Day 5: Girly Purple-Palooza

Happy Friday Lovelies!!!

Today I have the last of the Viva La Nails looks I did.

Let's jump right in!

First off I should warn you...Prepare for nubbins!
I had taken off my acrylics and didn't have time to put them back on before I had to get this done, so I just did it on my little nubbins!

I started with a base of 2 coats of Color Club "Pucci-licious" a super pretty neon purple.
Then I added a coat of Sally Hansen "Hidden Treasure" for a gorgeous gold-orange-pink shimmer effect!

Then I broke out the nail art stuff!

I LOVED those amazing butterfly decals I got and just had to use them!  So I picked out 3 of them, each with different colored stones, and placed them on my thumb, index and ring fingers.

Then I grabbed the purple and pink flower water decals and placed them on my middle and pinkie nails.

THEN....I broke out those pretty shell fragments.  I swiped on a thickish layer of topcoat on the areas I wanted the shells and then just sprinkled the shell fragments over those areas.

I finished up with a nice thick layer of top coat (which was apparently too thick...cause I got bubbles, blech!)
Ready for the uber girliness????

With all the stuff on it it was a bit much for my taste, but still really pretty!
I wanted to go big and use a variety of what I received all together, so I guess I succeeded!

I actually LOVED the base by it self, so I'll be sporting that again in the near future!

Well, that's it for today!

I hope to drop in tomorrow with a nice little bonus post (since I usually cant post on the weekends) of a review on something totally awesome!

Have a fantastic weekend!!!

The nail art items shown in this post were sent to me for free by Viva La Nails in exchange for an  honest  review

I'm not really into the whole girly thing, but I like it! It's nice you did it with purple, cause pink just would have made it awful :p

My nails are about the length of yours. I just broke my index fingernail waaay down. It was my one long nail. Oh well, the best thing is that they grow back. Love your manicure. Very, very girly. I've seen the shells pieces and wondered how you'd use and apply them. Now I know. It's adorable. Love the base color also. Have a great weekend.

I love that Color Club polish. Your natural nails don't look bad at all.
