Everyday between now and Friday this blog will be packed with nail art of my own, products I love, a few giveaways, and guest posts from a few ladies I emailed and asked, "Would you be my my nail crush?" So let's things started with the first contribution to Nail Crush, some nail art featuring products I'm pretty crazy about!

I usually don't lean toward "soft shades" but I felt after years of turning my nose up at them I should give them a try.

I used two coats of Barielle Dusting Powder on all of my nails to start and then I mixed things up a bit!
My ring finger has a stripe done in Orly Instant Artist Crisp White and topped with China China Glaze Passion via a Born Pretty stamping plate.
My middle and ring fingers are gradients using, again Barielle Dusting Powder and China Glaze Passion, LOVE and lemniscate (a.k.a. infinity) charms I got in a six pack from Charlotte Russe for (wait for it) .99¢!

And lastly my pinky is another gradient, but this time done in Barielle Enduring and Barielle Dusting Powder. After the subtle pink-to-white gradient was complete I broke out China Glaze passion and the same stamping plate I received from Born Pretty.

You can get the stamping plate I used in this mani for $2.99 at and if you use promo code NCL91 at checkout you get 10% off your total purchase!

But wait! there's more! You can actually win items from some of the brands mentioned today! Ready to see what could be yours if the price entry is right?

Barielle Summer Brights & Brilliant Collections from Summer 2013

I've mentioned on more than a hand full of occasions that I love three things when I comes to nail polish collections.
1. A good crème finish.
2. Bright Summer collections.
3. Barielle's amazing formula.

So why not giveaway something that embodies all three of these? I mean, it only makes perfect sense.

But that's not it!
Orly Instant Artist Jet Black | Orly Instant Artist Platinum | Orly Instant Artist Crisp White | Orly Instant Artist True Blue | Hard Candy Black Tie Optional

Nail Art Society relaunched and I was waiting for the perfect time to giveaway these brand new Orly Istant Artist shades! And remember when Hard Candy did some revamping and we all collectively fawned over Black Toe Optional? Well one winner will receive that, both Barielle Summer 2013 5-packs, and four Orly Instant Artists.
