New Years Eve!

Quick post again today! I came up with a New Years Eve :) It's ALL from my plate MM02.

Base color- L'Oreal "The Queens Ambition"
Stamp- Color Club "Harp on It"

I adore these Halo Hues for stamping, though it can be tough to photograph correctly!

Victorias Secret Game On stamped with Color Club Angel Kiss

I have been stamping snowflakes a lot, and this mani happens to be my favorite I've done so far. I am loving how amazing the Color Club Halo hues stamp, and I can't get enough!

Last week I went to use my secrets rewards card and one of the items I bought was the polish called Game On. In the bottle it's AWFULLY close to OPI Sapphire in the Snow, so I am hoping I can do a swatch of both of those. As we know SITS is really expensive to buy since its a HTF. I'm thinking Game On can be a good alternative to it.

Here I used BM 323for the snowflakes:

I hope you love this as much as I do!

Layla Ceramic Effect in CE52 over Orly Rococo A-Go-Go

I have one very quick picture for everyone! Hopefully when my final is done on December 18th I can go back to posting.

I have a layer on today. It's Orly Rococo A-Go-Go with Layla Ceramic Effect of CE52. I can't even express how beautiful this is in person. Of course, I didn't see all my mess ups until I took this picture with macro mode lol..

Time for a new post!

Hey everyone!

    Sorry I have been gone for sooo long. I now have 3 jobs, (two of them being director jobs) going back to school, still figure skating for myself, and  I joined a Theater on Ice team. I am one extremely busy person! Though I somehow managed to find time to be able to show a polish off :)

    I picked this color because of Fall, and I always tend to follow seasons. Once in a while I will wear a color that's not usually part of that season, but thats rare. I am always wanting like darker fall colors during this time.

   Today I am showing you Orly Nite Owl. This is from their 2011 birds of a feather collection. This was a set that I really enjoyed, but I am only showing one color from the collection. It;s a GORGEOUS lighter brown with some silver shimmer. The formula was amazingly smooth. It only took two coats to be opaque :) I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

The last picture was on my boyfriend's shirt he was wearing. I figured it would be a nice color to really show off the brown and it worked very well. Hopefully I can post sometime soon again :)

Purple holo and stamping

Hey everyone!

Sorry for not posting so long. Working everyday now so I needed to get settled in to find time for my nails. 

Today I am showing you a GORGEOUS purple holo from Sally Hansen with a stamp. The base color is Sally Hansen Purple Diamond. The stamp is the konad black stamping polish, stamped with BM 314. I wore this for about 5 days before it chipped. I didn't add any topcoat after the day I made it so I was asking for a chip lol.

My birthday mani!

Hey guys,
Sorry for not posting much. I just took on a 3rd job and I wanted to start getting ready for it. If you know me, you know I LOVE and have to keep busy or I get bored.. very easy lol. On top of that, I do love to work so I figured this would be great for me. So sorry for not updating!

Yesterday was my birthday so I wanted to do something pink and glitter. I decided on doing my first (and successful) jelly sandwich. I think I nailed it! I used OPI Too Hot Pink to Hold'em, and OPI Pirouette My Whistle.

When I finished I was so happy with it. I think it came out so beautiful. I noticed in the pictures there is a blue dot in one nail, I don't think I fully removed all my polish before putting new coats on. Sorry!

I am literally doing this post as I do my makeup lol. Yay for multitasking!

Holo top coat!

I am excited today, because I get to show you what I just bought on copious. I didn't use any credits since I don't have any but that's fine. I bought some spectraflair topcoats!! I used for the mani colors Julep Georgia, and then Julep Sarah for the accent. On top I added the holo top coat I bought from here. If I understand correctly, the smaller the number the more holo it is. I am using number 35, it's not too in your face so it gives that extra touch :)

I did ask permission of the owner who makes these topcoats before posting on my blog :) If you don't have any of this, BUY IT! You can make any polish holo!!!!!!

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Chartreuse Chase

I have today a Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polish! This is called Chartreuse Chase. I just received it in my beauty care package from my amazing friend Andrea. It's like a yellow-greenish color with a bit of metallic shimmer. I really like this color, especially for summer!

Sorry for the cut up cuticles on my ring finger :(

Also, I took off word verification on my comments, I didn't even know it was on!

Zoya Starla

Swatch for you today, of a beautiful pink! It did take 4 coats, and I still have a bit of a visible nail line. Usually I don't like polish that does this, but I love this color so much that it doesn't bother me. It is Zoya Starla!

CG Poinsettia and Julep O Canada

Sorry for no posts, had the craziest week ever. I was on vacation from work and went out everyday with friends, or had parties to go to. Back to work tomorrow!

This week I received my July box for Julep. I ended up getting a Golden Box! I was SOO ecstatic because this month they added America and O Canada. because I live in America, I would have only received that polish. But in the golden box, I got both! I was definitely happy to get it my first time this month.

For my mani, I have CG Poinsettia on, topped with O Canada by Julep. I am sorry these look bad, in real life it looks so much better! Macro pictures show ALL your flaws lol..

Now, here was my 4th mani. I only have a camera phone picture, sorry!!

Concrete Minerals review

Today, I want to change it up. Besides nail polish, and nail art I have another obsession. It's makeup. I LOVE eye makeup. I love colors, and blends and everything there is to it. My friend Andrea from Addicted to the Allure of Beauty ALWAYS shows me sales going on. Seriously, she is the sales queen lol. She told me about Concrete Minerals having a sale called "Youtube Guru & Bloggers Love Special". In this sale you can get ANY four mineralized shadows of your choice for only 15 dollars (retail 28 dollars) OR any 4 matte shadows for 15 dollars (retail 32 dollars).

You do have to have a blog or a youtube channel with at least 100 followers to participate. I decided why not, as I am really getting into all these mineral eyeshadows now. Let me tell you, I am SO happy I did.

This is what I got:

Four FULL sized pots, and they even threw in two sample baggies!! Here are the names of the colors I got:

Now for the swatches:

 Left to right: Harlequin, Kismet, Lithuim
Left to right: White rabbit, Zealous, Unity

Let me tell you, these are DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!!! I LOVE them!!

I did this quick eye makeup:

I used Harlequin, and Kismet. Since they are so pigmented, I only added a touch on my eyeshadow brush, and it was like bam. It was gorgeous in person.

I will say I will definitely be buying this brand again. They also threw in a 15% off my next order card and I can't wait to use it!

*I bought this with my own money, and this review is my FULL opinion*
