Zoya Awaken Shimmer Marble

 photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

Happy Friday! Yesterday I showed you the Zoya Awaken collection, and today I have some nail art using my three favorite polishes of that collection. I was really hoping that the shimmers would water marble well and I am happy to show you how it turned out.

 
 

Zoya: Dillon, Hudson, and Rebel

Yay! They do marble well. It is more of the subtle effect which I really like with these pastel colors. I love having two accent nails when doing water marbles. 
Have a great weekend!

BPS Rainbow Studs, Review

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

Morning! My mani today will be the last for alittle while. I just broke a couple of nails so I want to take some time to get them back into good health. I have a review of some rainbow like studs from the Born Pretty Store.  Below is a close up, you can see you get 10 studs.


I do wish they came more in a pack, if your like me you go thru studs like nail polish remover. I found that the stud design match a nail foil I had, so I choose to incorporate both into my mani.


China Glaze: Harmony
Kleancolor: Metallic Green and Aqua
Essie: Good as Gold
W111



Underneath the stamp I did a distressed mani using metallic's. These studs applied easily and they don't stick off the nail any different from other studs. I love the color of these studs, it's so much fun to see studs not just a solid color.
 
These studs are 3mm and you can get the same rainbow pattern in 5 other sizes here for only $2.63.  The Born Pretty Store really has so much to offer in nail art items, they also offer free International shipping. Make sure to use my coupon code below for 10% off!!

Candy Shimmer

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

Hello Lovelies, my mani today is rather simple. I am still trying to use all my new Mundo stamping polishes and that calls for skittlettes. I choose a candy stamp for today since I LOVE candy :D


OPI: Ski Teal We Drop
Orly: Halley's Comet
Mundo 24
Cheeky Jumbo Plate 7



Once again no problems stamping with Mundo polish and check out all that pigment. I forgot how beautiful Haley's Comet is from Orly, one downfall from having so many polishes.

Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Collection, Review

 photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

I have the most gorgeous polishes to review for you today. Yes you guessed right it is the Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Collection! I am first going to start out saying my original thoughts on this collection are ALL completely wrong. First off I thought, o boy chunky glitter's this is going to be a pain to apply. I then also thought wow these are going to be extremely rough and get caught on everything. Also, as with with all glitters I was not excited about the removal process. I am happy to say that none of that was true with these polishes! Check the preview out below and click over the jump for my full review with swatches and a video of these polishes!

BPS Hollowed Rose Nail Decor Pieces, Review

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

Happy Monday Morning lovelies. I hope everyone had a fun weekend, I am (like always) sad to see it end. I do have a cute mani to share with you today tho, it is a review for these adorable rose nail decor pieces shown below. These are from the Born Pretty Store.


When I first got these I was shocked how small and danity they are. I am very pleased with how many you receive also. Below is how I wore these roses.


 Only: Minds Eye
Sally Hansen: Silver Sweep
Pueen 73

 

Of course a macro to see the detail of this nail decoration.


I applied these roses the same as other studs, and since these lay flat on the nail you don't have to worry about them catching onto anything. These are made of a thin wire material so you can bend them to fit the curve of your nail.

You can find these adorable rose nail decor pieces here for only $3.18. They come in gold and silver and they have different styles also . The Born Pretty Store really has so much to offer in nail art items, they also offer free International shipping. Make sure to use my coupon code below for 10% off!!

Happy Valentines Day

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

 Happy Valentines Day to all those who are celebrating it, otherwise happy Friday! I have my final valentine mani that I will be wearing for the weekend. My plans are nothing major I wont see my boyfriend till 10:30 tonight anyways. I decided to do a gradient with textured polishes and add alittle heart.


 OPI: Pussy Galore
Zoya: Miranda and Chyna



I am surprisingly in love with how much pink this mani has. I top coated these textures since I really wanted to bring out the shine.
How are you or aren't you celebrating your Valentines Day?
Have a great weekend!!

Negative Space Red & White Hearts


 Hello Lovelies! How fitting is that for this Valentine week? ;) My mani today is all hearts and red. I was inspired by One Nail To Rule Them All for today's mani. She has a great tutorial on negative space mani's, even with her doing a heart shape.


 Butter London: Pillar Box Red
Cosmetic Arts: Picture Day
Pueen55



I added glequins instead of outlining my heart, thought it gives more sparkle! This heart stamp is part of the new Pueen buffet stamping set, so far I love that set there are so many options! For being my first negative space mani I am sort of digging this idea. I have entered this mani into a contest #RINAILART, wish me luck!
Have you tried this technique? Whats your thought on negative space mani's?

Heart and Holograms

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

Good Morning! Rather simple mani today, not much to say about it. My decal didn't work out very good but I love the gradient heart on my middle finger.


 Color Club: Style Icon, Harp On It, and Halo-Graphic
Cosmetic Arts: Picture Day
BM-H18



This is much more of a traditional Valentines mani, with red pink and white. Can you see my nail shape is more round than square now also? Wanted to change it up alittle.

Blue Kissy Mani

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

 Happy Monday! I had the best birthday weekend since I can remember, and am so sad to see it already be another work week :( Atleast it is now valentines week so I can do some lovey mani's. My boyfriend got me some Mundo stamping polishes for my birthday, so I just had to try at least one of them out asap.


 OPI: Ski Teal We Drop
Essie: Dive Bar
Mundo 5
 BM-H17 and BM02



I can't believe how pigmented that blue is! I am so happy I got these stamping polishes, I even have more coming from my parents for my birthday!! It is sort of weird having a valentine mani without any pink or red.
Are you a huge valentine day fan?
