I Can't Believe It but it is Still Alive

Hey Everyone!!  OMG the title of this post is awful. I couldn't come up with anything else though lol Geesh, it is pertty cheesy. Today I have a ton of pictures for you! I almost broke it down into two posts but decided to leave it as one. This of course means that I have to keep doing green manis so I have plenty of things to blog about. 


I started off by doing a gel mani with Red Carpet Manicure polish in I Can't Believe It. I am not sure if this was part of a collection or if it is core but I picked it up on clearance when I first was getting into the gel polish.


I Can't Believe It is a clear base with small silver glitter and larger holographic glitter. It was thicker than I am used to polish being with Gelish but it could be due to the glitter.


I bought these cute decals from LuckyStarStyle on ebay last year and have been waiting to use them again. I love them soo much. I had never put decals in a gel mani before so this was quite an experiment.



I only used two decals per hand because I am cheap and wanted to conserve them. I also thought it might be a little much to put them on every nail. I love this design so much.

I wanted to add some color to the mani because I didn't like seeing my nail line.


I used Pahlish Still Alive from the 2012 Portal Collection. This color is insanely gorgeous. My mom even picked this color for a mani when I had first gotten it. That is unheard of.


I decided to do two full nails with Still alive and then the tips on the nails with the decals. 


Still Alive has this AMAZING glowing shift to it that I could not get the camera to pick up very easily. The pictures do this polish absolutely no justice.


I know this picture looks the same as the one above but you can see the gold and a little of the glow. I tried really hard to get it to show up.


SO PRETTY! This polish is amazing. You NEED IT!


The formula was a little thick but I put some thinner in it and it worked perfectly to my liking. 


It is packed with little flakies and glitter and magic. It is magic I tell you.


 Magic!


I also LOVE the decals. LOVE. 


They are so easy to apply and look fantastic.



I love this mani. I know, at this point I am just babbling because I feel like I should say something. 

Last but not least I have a picture of Mr. Charles Charleston Chew. He is destructo dog or better known as broken puppy. He hates his picture being taken and barks at the camera.


That's all for now :)

    1. :D Yes, less is definitely more, especially when they are this big. I love them so much I might have to do another mani with them. It is hard to keep them to a minimum lol

    1. Thank you :)

      He is quite a cute dog actually. Unfortunately he is also completely insane. He can be really sweet though when he isn't freaking out and running away from you.
