Orange Creamsicle Anyone?

~Nothing to Disclose~

 Good Morning! I was inspired by some of my neglected orange polishes for my mani today. I decided I mine as well give water marbling another whirl also.

I surprisingly really enjoyed wearing this mani, and it really reminds me of orange creamsicles! Perhaps these orange polishes wont get neglected anymore :D

Three Neon Stained Glass

~nothing to disclose~

It's almost the weekend!! Even tho our sunny warm days were sparse this week I wanted to wear some neon :D I did this free handed stained glass neon mani to brighten up my week.

Cosmetic Arts: Picture Day
China Glaze: Pool Party and Orange Knockout
Zoya: Charisma
Orly: Jet Black

As always neons don't show up the best in photos, this are much more bright in person. I also loved this look and already can think of another mani to incorporate this stained glass appearance.

Neon Coral and Black

 ~some items provided for previous review~

It has officially been sunny for three days straight, in order to celebrate I have a neon mani! This is also my first use of Flip Flop Fantasy and I now know why this is such a popular color from China Glaze. The pigment is amazing and the formula was great for being a neon.

I pretty much love this entire mani, black always makes neon's stand out that much more. I love how this lace nail foil looks over this coral, last time I paired it with a sheer. Here's to hoping this sunshine weather stays and that I didn't jinx it!

Red and Silver Holo Skittlette

~nothing to disclose~

Hello, I have a quick skittlette design to share today. I threw this design together rather quickly trying to use a couple of my new polishes.

China Glaze: Seduce Me
OPI: Snow You Love Me
Color Club: Harp on It
Cheeky Jumbo Plate 8

I wasn't to in love with this mani.. but I did enjoy how shiny it was! The only reason I bought Snow You Love Me was since I found it on clearance and thought be a great polish to just add to my collection. Not to sure how much use it will get tho..

V Dot French

~nothing to disclose~

Morning! I have one last mani to share from my vault before we get back to my nails now a days... When I did this mani I had no expectations, I started off with Stone Cold and just kept adding to it. Surprisingly it didn't turn out bad and I actually wore this for a few days!

China Glaze: Stone Cold

I think what I liked most about this mani was the holo over this gorgeous black base. I just love finding an old polish that still amazes me like Stone Cold.

Glitter Zig Zag

~nothing to disclose~

Morning! Since my nails are working there way to better health I thought I would share a mani from my vault. I have gone back and forth whether to share this mani and since I don't like leaving you all for a week thought this would make a nice filler in post. I was experimenting with diamond glitters and thought of this pattern below.

China Glaze: To Yacht To Handle

As you can see it was hard to place the glitters just right... and I don't think the color combination is a huge hit. I just may revisit this idea and try again, I feel like it could look great!
Do you enjoy seeing my fail mani's?

I have to say this is the most gorgeous oxblood glitter I have seen. I am a huge fan of deep reds they make me feel sophisticated, not sure why lol. I also love the mirco silver glitters in Bella. Below are links where you can find Shimmer polishes.

Cosmic Butterflies

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

Hi Ladies, my mani today is a quick stamping design. I recent;y bough my first Polish Me Silly polish and was super excited to try it out. I decided to add some cute butterflies on top with one of my new Mundo stamping polishes. 

Polish Me Silly: Cosmic Kisses
China Glaze: VIII
Mundo 16
Cheeky Jumbo 9

Below is a swatch of Cosmic Kisses on it's own, you can see the shift from  red/purple to blue :D

This is by far the best Duochorome polish I have and I love that it has sparkle with it. I will defiantly be grabbing more of Polish Me Silly polishes in the future.

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

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!!
