Ballet Slippers

Hey everyone! When I started this mani my intention was not to create ballet slippers but then someone mentioned that's what they looked like and I was like "yea they do!" I used No Hard Feelings and Mauve It both my Sally Hansen.
I think I like the way this one turned out but I hate how messy I was.
Please ignore the greasy cuticles...

Happy Saturday <3

OPI Fall Color

Hey everyone! Today I have a perfect Fall color for you. Schnapps Out of It! from the OPI Germany Collection. I feel like there were a lot of polish lovers that were on the fence with this one because of it's unique color but I personally love it.  It doesn't make my skin look too yellow which is what I was afraid of.

Happy Friday <3

Mix of Blues

Hey everyone! Recently, there has been some new blue polishes that have come into my life and I wanted to use a few so this is what I came up with:

I wasn't a big fan of these so they came off the next day...
But in case you're wondering what I used:
Ring & Thumb - China Glaze Splish Splash with Sinful Colors Hottie
Index - China Glaze Man Hunt and SC Hottie
Middle & Pinky - China Glaze Man Hunt
I stamped with Konad White from SE plate 18 and topped them all off with Jessica No Shine Finish.
Happy Thursday <3

September Birchbox

Hey everyone! I've been ignoring you lately, I'm sorry :(  
Today I have all of this month's Birchbox goodies to share with you.

This month's box included:
1) Tili Bag - this was a "Lifestyle Extra".  Cute little bag for storing beauty essentials when traveling.
2) Nexxus Pro-Mend Split End Treatment System - I liked this but didn't love it. Hard for me to love any other shampoo/conditioner since I started using Lush products for my hair though.  Smell gets a thumbs up!
3) Kate Spade Twirl Fragrance - This was more like love at 2nd or 3rd whiff for me.
4) The POREfessional by Benefit Cosmetics - I've been using this for a week now and I definitely feel like it does the job but I'm not over the moon about it quite yet. Waiting for me primer from theBalm to come in then I'll decide
5) Color Club Polish -  Everyone knows I love when Birchbox includes polish but I feel like this is almost a dupe for Sally Hansen's Pacific Blue.
6) Twistband Hair Tie - I know this sounds kind of lame but I LOVE this! It doesn't tug at my hair or leave a crease in my hair when it's straight. 

Here's a quick swatch of Color Club Insta-This 
Happy Wednesday <3

Glitter & Leopard

I used China Glaze Kinetic Candy as my base and China Glaze Grape Juice and Fairy Dust.
Happy Saturday <3

New Swatch

Hey everyone! I've felt a little uninspired the last couple of days so thought I should swatch one of my untrieds.  This is 2 coats of Sinful Color Hazard.  It's a bright orange/coral.

Happy Monday <3

A Glitter Sammich for Ya!

Hey everyone! Today I have tried another glitter sandwich using Zoya Lulu and OPI Pirouette My Whistle from the NYC Ballet Collection.  I looove this glitter!
Here's what the finished product looked like:

 Here's a swatch of Zoya Lulu - 1 coat 

And here's Lulu with one coat of Pirouette My Whistle - before the sandwich happened.

  I almost like it more this way than sandwiched :)

Happy Pink Wednesday <3

Purple Monday

Hey everyone! Hope you're all having a wonderful Labor Day! Today I was feeling in the mood for something purple and couldn't decide between China Glaze Sweet Hook and Urban Night so I used both.
Sweet Hook is a  creme pastel lavender that leans a little more pink than purple...such a breeze to apply.  Urban Night is a darker plum kind of purple...gorgeous color for Fall!
(yes, I have filed my nails down a ton)
 Happy Monday <3
