3 mani's today!

I am so sorry for not posting for 9 days. I got really sick for 4, and then worked a ton! No time to rest!

I am showing 3 mani's I have done within the last 9 days. (I've had another one but I didn't take a picture. Wasn't too fond of it)

So here is the first:

This was L'oreal Pink Shells base stamped with Color Club Where's the Soiree? The stamp is from my XXL plate I've used in the last few posts. I am obsessed with those XXL plates.

Next is Claire's Cosmic. Sorry for the black wristband I twisted my wrist when I took it. Also, for the one pieve of hair I didn't see when taking the pictures lol.

Finally Revlon Royal Cloak. I am really loving this purple. It has TINY little silver flecks (I guess you could call it flecks) in it. So pretty. I just stamped this so hopefully that will be later on this week!

Hope you enjoyed!

Orly Bubbly Bombshell and stamp

Since I loved having a glitter (China Glaze Prism) as a base color for stamping, I decided to try it again. This time I used Orly Bubbly Bombshell and a randomly mini Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polish. Like my previous post, I used an XXL plate from youmixcosmetics.  Here is the pictures!

China Glaze Prism and stamping

I'll be the first to say, when I saw the preview of China Glaze Prism, I wasn't too excited. That all changed when I seen how gorgeous they are in person. They also look AMAZING as a base for a stamped mani. First here is Prism by itself:

Then using one of my favorite plates, an XXL one from youmixcosmetics, I did a stamp with my ebony hates Chris wet n wild polish.

sorry for the tipwear, but I took it days after I did it. I love this :)

Gradient stamping design

I just posted up swatches of Zoya Kimber which is my base color. You can see it here. On top of the base of Kimber, I used Amazon's Flash by Loreal which I just bought yesterday at Ocean State Job Lot. I was able to get it for only 2 dollars. After I put the gold on just half my nail, I took my XXL stamping plate from you mix cosmetics, and stamped with Color Club French Tip. This was my result:

I am definitely loving it!

Zoya Kimber

I have some swatches for you of Zoya Kimber. I was able to get it free (but pay shipping which is cheaper than a zoya itself) with my Share The Love Points. I am so happy I did. It does remind me of China Glaze Strawberry Fields, but it's a bit brighter in my opinion.

For every pink lover, this is a must have! One indoor picture (first one) and the rest outdoor :)

Julep Natasha and Oscar (Pic Heavy)

First the first time, I have become a Julep Maven. I was always interested in their polish, and I finally caved in as I cut back some other finances in my life. I got the Bombshell result on the test, and I couldn't change it since it was after the time. I don't mind though. I really like what I got. I got the Julep Natasha (orange) and Oscar (gold glitter) along with a nail file and their hand scrub. Their hand scrub works very well and I am pleased with that. Now onto the polish!

Both polish's glided on like butter. Seriously, it was perfection! Here is my result:

Wet n Wild - Wild Orchid (Pic heavy)

Okay, I have to stay with that I am blown away by this color. This has become one of my all time favorites. It is a purple based with holo scattered glitter. In the sun it can become a bit of a blu-ish purple-ish color. But look at how beautiful it is:

There are both indoor and outdoor pictures here :)

Orly Stone Cold (Pic heavy)

Here is my second blue mani! I can't believe I haven't worn this yet. This weekend I got some melmers and was filling them up. As I was putting this in, my boyfriend mentioned how he liked the color. I put it on that night and wow, it's a beauty! I love it. It's dark but bright at the same time. I was able to get some indoor and outdoor pictures! This is probably my favorite finish of polish of all time. It's so beautiful!

CG DV8 and CG Lorelei's Tiara

I've been in a blue kick lately and this is the first of two mani's in blue. I did China Glaze DV8 with an accent nail of CG Lorelei's Tiara. I loved this. I didn't clean up well, and I didn't notice until I started to watermark my photos. Sorry!

These are all indoor pictures. It's been rainy here lately so I couldn't get any sun pictures.
