Pink Wednesday

Hey everyone! I did a fun mani today using Turquoise and Rose by Love & Beauty (don't they have such unique names?).  
 Please excuse the little mess-up :)

Happy Pink Wednesday <3

Sunday Swatch

Hey everyone! Hope you're enjoying your holiday weekend...I'm loving not having anything to do!
It's been really gloomy and cold where I live so I was craving a darker color and OPI Wooden Shoe Like To Know? was the winner.  I totally forgot how in love I am with this color! I'm pretty sure I've shown it here before too.
I didn't clean it up so I apologize in advance for some of the messiness, I think I was just feeling a little extra lazy ;)

Happy Sunday <3

Gold Glitter!

Hey everyone! Today I tried two newbies of mine: Revlon's Make Mine Mango which is a beautiful almost Coral glass/jelly (I am such a sucker for corals!) and a gold glitter by Color Club (I'm still working on figure out the names of this glitter collection I promise).

 Here's a shot of that beautiful's much more gold in person than this pic is showing.

Happy Friday <3

It's a LadyBug kind of Day!

Hey everyone! Forgot to share this with you the other day...the warm weather was getting to me I guess so I attempted Lady Bugs :D I learned one thing...I desperately need a black stripey polish! This was hard to do without one so I will definitely attempt this again once I own the right polish striper for the job ;)
Happy Thursday <3

Pink Glitter Wednesday

Hey everyone! It's that Pink Wednesday time again! Today I used Pink Again by Revlon and then for some weird reason I decided to add glitter randomly...bleh. I starting picking this off almost immediately ;) The glitters I used were Pure Ice Spit Fire and one of those damn no-namers from my Color Club Collection - it kind of looks like shards of glass. 

Happy Pink Wednesday <3

Thanks for the Help!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to quickly thank Kris and Melany for helping me figure out what collection my Color Club set is from! With their help I was able to find all the names (well at least to one of my sets). It's the Poptastic Collection! So after I learned what all the names were I got circle sticker labels for them :)
Tada! And now I just need to figure out the glitter set.  The box says Glitter Vixen but when I look up swatches from that collection maybe ONE matches and that's all. 
And here's a quick swatch for you...It's Red Hot Rouge Chaud by Mary Kay (forgot the bottle shot sorry!)

Happy Tuesday <3

Mystery Color Club

Hey everyone! Hope you're enjoying this lovely weekend :) 
I know this may sound dumb to some but I am so frustrated with my Color Clubs because they don't have names!!  Apparently, if you buy individual Color Club bottles they label them but if you buy the entire box collection they don't feel the need to...WTF?!? I've even searched online and it's no here it is, the mystery Color Club mani!  I was planning on messing with this mani a little more but had no time so just left it with the simple accent.
 I tried to take extra bottle shots. If these colors look familiar to you please help me out???
The glitter almost makes me think it's Sugar Plum Fairy but I still don't think that may be right.

Happy Saturday <3

Polka-Dot Pink

Hey everyone! It's (polka-dot) Pink Wednesday today! For this mani I used Essie French Affair and Pure Ice Flirt Alert. I feel like my nails are at a 3 year-old's Birthday party :)

Happy (Pink) Wednesday <3

Magnetic Monday

Hey everyone! I tried my new China Glaze Magnetic polishes....a little more frustrating to do than I would have liked BUT I'm willing to keep trying.  I used Drawn to You and then just tested out the different sides of the magnet.  
Here it is with no top can see it dries a little matte.
 You can see that almost nothing happened to my middle or ring finger - I definitely need to keep working on that.
 These next two are after I added top coat...

Happy Monday <3

Happy Mother's Day!

Hey everyone! I hope all of you Mommy's are enjoying your day! This Momma was very spoiled this weekend - I got 20 new bottles of polish to show you!  I got 2 packs of Color Club Collections but I'm very frustrated because I can't figure out exactly what collection they're from. I mean, I know it says right on the box but it doesn't match what they have on their website. Which leaves a lot of these as no-namers and that drives me crazy!
The glitter set says Glitter Vixen Collection on the box but when I look at swatches they don't match at all! The second are the neon's that I assume are from the Poptastic Collection, but it doesn't say for sure.  I can't complain though because each box set was only $7.99...amazing deal! If any of you own these or know exactly what collection they're from please let me know...I would appreciate it so much! In the meantime I'll just keep searching, trying to figure it out. 
 I know I'm a little late on these next ones but I'm just glad I finally have them to try :D
China Glaze's Magnetic's!
I also got a few fun things on the side to help out with my nail fun ;)
A new Konad stamper and a brush/dotting tool set from Bundle Monster. Now I finally have brushes specific for more using my other regular art brushes yay!
And now for my NOTD...I used these 2 colors from my new (Poptastic?) Color Club Collection.  The yellow is appearing a bit more neon than it actually is. The pink is about dead on. 

Now I'm off to enjoy my Mother's Day with my beautiful family...thanks to my husband and daughter for making today and everyday so wonderful! 
Happy Mother's Day <3

May's Birchbox

Hey everyone! I'm a super excited today first Birchbox finally came in!!!!  I'm sure most of you know what Birchbox is all about but for those of you that don't know basically you pay $10 a month and Birchbox will send you fun beauty samples and products. To learn more go here.  The best part (for me) is that you don't know what's's like a girly Christmas every month :D  
There's actually quite a few companies who do things similar to this but I decided to start with Birchbox. I'm going to do the whole 3-strikes-you're-out rule and if I'm not happy it's on to the next beauty box.
This month's theme was Gossip Girl...too bad I don't watch the show :(

 It's all cutely wrapped in tissue paper and right off the bat there's 2 cards (forgot to photograph one). This one below is just a little fun card and on the back it has questions you can answer from a future episode of Gossip Girl to try and win $$ to spend at Birchbox. The second card lists all the items in your box along with a brief description of the product and how much you can get it for on their website.
 At the very end I'll list everything I got...

 I didn't realize what a terrible swatch this was until I came inside and uploaded the picture...sorry :/  It's actually a really pretty blue glitter and not at all sheer as it looks here...
Products from this months Birchbox:
1) Color Club Nail Polish - Disco Nap (metallic gold)
2) Dr. Jart + - Waterfuse BB Cream (4-in-1 moisturizer, serum, sunscreen and skin tint)
3) Kerastase - Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide (fragrant hair serum)
4) Stila - Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner (in the color Curacao)
5) Kerastase - Cristalliste Bain Cristal (Shampoo)
6) Kerastase - Cristalliste Lait Cristal (Conditioner)
7) Notecard/Stationary (xoxo)

I'm excited to try all of these...I heard Kerastase is an amazing hair product.
Yay for my first Birchbox! :D
