L-O-V-E

Hi guys!

Valentine's Day is coming up soon so I thought I'd cook up some Valentine's Day inspired designs. I LOVE this look.... ;) 

I started off with a base of Nasty Nails One Night Stand. When it was dry I stamped over each nail using Mundo De Unas Light Pink and Bundle Monster plate BM-711. Then I used my Clear Jelly Stamper and stamped the letters over each nail using Born Pretty Store Black and Bundle Monster plate BM-426. I sealed everything in with some Seche Vite to finish it off!



I am so happy with the way these came out! The Clear Jelly Stamper has really revolutionized how we stamp, it has made placing specific designs, like the LOVE letters, SO much easier! I can't wait to create more!

What do you think about this look for Valentine's Day? Would you rock it?

Thanks loves!

HEART beat

Hi guys!

I'm loving on these Valentine's Day looks! The one is super unique and it was so much fun to create!

I started with a base of Color Club Miss Bliss. Then I stamped over each nail using Mundo De Unas White and Pink and Bundle Monster plate BM-319. Then I stamped over each nail using my Clear Jelly Stamper, Born Pretty Store Black and Bundle Monster plate BM-411. Finally I sealed everything in with Seche Vite and that was it!


I know a lot of people have mixed feelings about Valentines Day but I hope that we can all agree that pink nails and hearts can be worn all year long! ;) 

What do you guys think?

Thanks loves :)

Cupcake Polish: Unicorn Collection Swatches

I am actually dying T.T 

The beautiful-ness of this collection is just over the top, call it love, call it whatever you want but I guarantee you, you NEED these gorgeous polishes in your life! That's right, I'm talking Unicorns, specifically the Unicorn Collection from Cupcake Polish. Don't believe me? Let the swatches speak for themselves <3


Imagine
A stunning teal jelly base packed with teal and silver holographic micro glitters. Formula is on the thicker side but that's to be expected with a micro glitter polish but it was extremely easy to work with. I want to note that the formula on all five of these were the same, so excuse me for being redundant LOL! This polish dries slightly textured so you will want a top coat for sure if you want that smooth shiny finish. Swatch below is two coats, yes TWO coats to get a beautiful full coverage finish, I DIE, with one coat of Seche Vite top coat. 


Magic
A peridot green jelly base packed with peridot green and silver holographic micro glitters. Formula is the same as the rest, thicker but definitely easy to work with. It will dry slightly textured so be sure to top coat to get that smooth and shiny finish. Swatch below is two coats with Seche Vite top coat. 


Wish
A medium/light pink jelly base packed with pink and silver holographic micro glitters. Formula is the same as the others and it will dry to a textured finish so make sure you add your favorite top coat to get that smooth and shiny finish. Swatch is two coats with Seche Vite top coat. 


Dream
A medium blue jelly base packed with blue and silver holographic micro glitters. Formula is the same as the others and dries slightly textured also so make sure you add a top coat if you want a smooth and shiny finish. Swatch is two coats with Seche Vite top coat. 


Believe
A beautiful purple jelly base packed with purple and silver holographic micro glitters. Formula is the same as all of the others and make sure you add a top coat because it will dry to a slightly textured finish. Swatch is two coats with Seche Vite top coat. 


These are SO SPARKLY! They are all so beautiful and I am so impressed by the formula. I rarely see a micro glitter that is completely opaque in two coats, if ever. Definitely happily impressed. 

My favorite would have to be Imagine, I'm just so into teal and mint colors lately and with the added holographic sparkle this is a must have for me. But honestly I think they are all must haves LOL!

Cupcake Polish retails for 13.00USD for a 15mL polish. You can buy these pretties and so many more at www.cupcakepolish.bigcartel.com. Stay up to date with new releases, coupons, and so much more by following:

What is a Tweexy?

Hi guys!

Long time no talk! The good news is that my boyfriend and I are all moved in to the new house and my nails are slowly recovering ;) 

While we were in the process of moving, a new company, Tweexy, reached out to me to see if I would give their new product a go. I was super intrigued because I mean, what the heck is a TweexyTweexy is, "The first and only spill-proof, finger-mounted nail polish bottle holder." Sounds cool right? I thought so too so I was more then happy to give it a try. The Tweexy currently comes in three different colors: Spa GreenSapphire Night, and Bonbon Pink. I received the Bonbon Pink. What I really like about the Tweexy is how easy it is to polish my nails when I'm not home. I do use it at home as well but now I can polish anywhere! The Tweexy is super sturdy and it eliminates the need for a flat surface to place your bottle on when polishing so you can polish almost anywhere! Let's see how well it works...


Cute packaging, interesting looking product. 


Claim on the side of the box, "Fits all bottles and fingers. No smudge spill drip." 


To use: Squeeze the tabs on the side of the Tweexy to open up the finger rings and place on any two fingers. Insert the bottle and polish away! Remove by squeeze the tabs and pulling off the fingers. 



I found that it fit quite comfortably on my fingers. I usually switch between my pointer and middle fingers and my middle and ring fingers. Both way are comfortable to me. The Tweexy is made out of silicone and it has a bit of weight to it so it takes a short while to adjust to but I quite like the look of it.



Super impressed, the bottle didn't budge at all when I turned my hand upside-down.



Fits mini OPI bottles as easily as regular sized bottles. 



Even fits different shaped bottles like my VS polishes with no problem. 



Overall: I am very impressed with this product. It's not often an innovative product comes along and blows me away but I think the Tweexy has the potential to become an essential nail polishing tool. Easy to use, fool proof instructions, and a quality product makes me sure that I will be using this every time I paint my nails. 

The Tweexy is available exclusively on Amazon.com and sells for $14.95USD. Just search Tweexy on Amazon to purchase. Want to know more? Visit www.tweexy.com for reviews and videos and to learn more about the history about this company. Stay up to date with everything Tweexy by following:



What do you guys think? Have you heard of the Tweexy yet? Will you purchase one... or 100?

Duochrome Herringbone

Hi guys!

I am in LOVE with these nails! I always love the way duo chrome polishes look over black and it just pops with this design, so lovely <3

I started with a base of Wet n Wild Black Creme. When it dried I applied Herringbone Stencils from Stick It! Nail Vinyls and sponged China Glaze Unpredictable over top. I removed the stencils while the polish was still wet and sealed it all in with some Seche Vite to finish it off!



I'm serious guys, the pictures don't even do this mani justice! 

What do you think?

Thanks loves :)

Whats Up! Triangle Swirl Nail Vinyls

Hi guys!

So recently I was contacted by Whats Up Nails to give their vinyls a try and of course I said yes! You know how I love me some nail vinyls ;) I was really excited to try out their swirl vinyls and this fall inspired look was just perfect! Wanna see what I created? 

I started with a base of Enchanted Polish Vampires Suck because it is the greatest brown holo polish EVAR! When it dried I applied the Triangle Swirl vinyls and on my pointer, middle, and pinky nails I only painted inside of the triangle and on my ring I painted my entire nail with China Glaze Mingle With Kringle. I removed the vinyls while my polish was still wet and sealed everything in with some Seche Vite to finish this look off.



I am so LOVING this look! So fall-y, so neutral-y, so gorgeous-y :) and I was really happy with the vinyls, they applied easily and removed like a breeze with no sticky residue left over!

You can get these vinyls along with 36784593 more and some amazing nail art tools (I HIGHLY recommend the water marbling tool) at http://store.whatsupnails.com. Keep up with all of their sales and new releases by following them:

Bear Pawlish Neverending Story

Hi guys!

I've been a little sporadic lately and I'm sorry for that but I promise it's for good reason. Wanna know what it is? My boyfriend and I have bought our first house! YEAH! Our official move in date is in about a month so expect my posts to be a little bit all over the place while we get ready to move. I will do my best to keep up as much as possible but those boxes aren't going to pack themselves ;)

Anyways, I thought I'd show off another pretty polish that's been sitting in my untrieds pile for a while, and I really think you're going to like this one!

Bear Pawlish Neverending Story
An absolutely stunning silver holographic polish with a slight hint of a duo chrome shift and purple/blue/green multi chrome micro glitters. Just. Stunning! I've yet to be disappointed with any of Bear Pawlish's polishes and this is no exception. The formula was super smooth and built up to complete opacity in three easy coats. Watched below are three coats with Seche Vite top coat.




Now this is a polish I can wear time and time again, it's simple but so complex at the same time. I LOVE IT!

What do you guys think? Do you have any Bear Pawlishes? Are there any other colors you want me to swatch?

Thanks loves!
