Lavender Glitter Flecks

Hey everyone!  Today I tried out my new OPI Do You Lilac It? 
After 2 coats I decided to slap on Motley by Finger Paints.
This was impossible to photograph but any of you who own any Finger Paints from the Special Effects Topcoat Collection know what this looks like.

The lighting in this pic is terrible but it was intentional so you can see the colors of the flecks

Happy Wednesday <3

Save the Tatas!

Hey everyone! I can't believe October is almost over and I've barely done my Breast Cancer Awareness manicure.  I'm not too happy with the outcome but it's the best I could do in 15 minutes time.  They also started getting dinged up before I could take pics since I had to rush out of my house right after my top coat started doing its job.
I did a variation of matte, stamp, water marble, glitter and freehand.

What I used:
Orly - Decades of Dysfunction
Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
Pure Ice - Spit Fire
China Glaze - Hang-Ten Toes
Color Club - Poptastic
Konad Special Polish - pink
China Glaze - Pool Party
Color Club - Wing Fling

Happy Saturday <3

Hey everyone! Today I have a cloud mani for this fall cloudy day...
I tried to stick to fall inspired colors.
I used: Wet n Wild Undercover, then China Glaze Ingrid, then China Glaze Dress Me Up.
I apologize for some of the glare
Here you can see some of the golden shimmer in Ingrid.

New York Fashion Week Jelly

Hey everyone! Today I have a swatch from the Zoya NYFW Gloss Collection.  Paloma is one of the jellies from the trio set and is just so gorgeous and squishy!
This is 3 coats.
You can get away with 2 if you're careful with application.

 This is with flash so it shows a bit more fuchsia than it really is.
Doesn't it remind you of candy? Think Jolly Rancher...
Happy Thursday <3

Coffee Date?

Hey everyone! Today I have a swatch of my first Indie polish EVER! It's by Xoxo Nails (which can be found on Etsy) and is called Coffee Date.  I had to give this one undies as the base is a bit sheer. This is 2 coats over Priti Polish Temple Peony - Ignore my dry hands...the colder weather is already doing it's damage :(

The hex and micro glitter is a copper/brown color. 

 Happy Wednesday <3

Pink & Glitter. Pink & Glitter.

Hey everyone! For today's mani I used China Glaze Flirty Tankini, Color Club Sugar Plum Fairy and a black and silver glitter striper polish.
 The pink is a tad more neon IRL. It is from a summer neon collection after all ;)

Happy Monday <3

Red & Gold Love

Hey everyone! Recently my sister saw something on Pinterest and asked if I could try to re-create it for her so of course I had to practice on my own nails first.
I used Orly Grave Mistake and Butter London West End Wonderland.
The hearts on my index look terrible...I had a hard time with those but I rocked them for one day anyway :)

Happy Sunday <3

October Birchbox

Hey everyone! Well I can officially say Birchbox has disappointed me :( 
I loved my first few boxes but lately Birchbox has been slacking. Now keep in mind I did opt for this months collaboration with Goop soooo here it is:

Products from this months box:
1) Mighty Leaf Tea - Now if I didn't love tea as much as I do I'd be pretty upset with getting these in a beauty box subscription.
2) Per-fect Beauty Lip Perfection Gel - The color isn't so bad however the sample size is a whole different story.
3) DDF Brightening Cleanser - This makes my box decent since it's a full size product. 
4) Caudalie Vinoperfect Radience Serum - Smell is awesome, sample size is terrible.
5) Orofluido Beauty Elixir - This is probably the most exciting thing in this box for me.  I love hair oils (especially if they contain Argan) and the smell is amazing!

So that's about all I have to say about this month's Birchbox...I don't know if I should cancel now or wait one more month (since I opted for the collaboration box this month).  Birchbox may need to prepare to hand my $10 over to Ipsy ;)

Tippur Review

Hey everyone! Today I have an awesome product to review for you!
 Its the Nail Polish Bottle Holder made by the Tippur Company.  
Say hello to your new third hand :)

There's lots of things I love about this product so lets get started!

First off, it's got a grip lining on the bottom so it stays put.

It's also got a weighted ball on one end and comes with little foam inserts so that it can fit multiple sizes of bottles.
It has full motion - you can literally get every last drop of polish out of your bottle!

 I tested using an Orly, China Glaze, a mini Color Club and even...a Butter London bottle.

                                                                   It's so universal! Every bottle fit perfectly!

The Tippur comes in 6 different colors and goes for $9.95 (plus free shipping!) Click here for more information on the product/company or to order your very own polish holder!

Glitter Gradient Attempt

Hey everyone! Now before I show you my mani I want you to know that this looked bad ass....in my head. 
I used Butter London West End Wonderland and China GlazeVIII
I don't have much to say about this mani besides I don't like it all that much but I still thought you'd like to see :)

Those blobs you see are supposed to be roses by the way.
Happy Wednesday <3
