Golden Rosé

I won this beautiful polish from my friend over at ColorSutraa. She actually brought this back from her trip. They are Turkish polishes!! I actually won 3 bottles from her, but this is my first showcase. I topped my accent nail with a little Milani sandwich as well. Well be sure to check out ColorSutraa on Facebook as well. Below you can find all her contact info. Have a beautiful day!

NECTRESSE Review

* I received this product free from Influenster to test.

I really enjoy this product and I know I am straying pretty far from beauty products, I will link it back in a second. I am always leery of sweeteners because you always hear of bad ingredients or cancer causing ingredients and bad things like that. Nectresse is an all natural sweetener. This means that I can look at the ingredients and I actually know what they are. Only being around $4 a box, this leaves lots of room for me to pick up some polishes!! Anyway, to bring it back to beauty-- This product has 0 Zero 0 calories!! I also have to do a video review of a product and for that I attempted to make a sugar scrub. I love making my own beauty products and half the time I fail. This time I really searched to find an easy recipe that I could use the Nectresse for. I picked a Sugar Scrub. I came across this recipe on Sugarandcloth.com. They have a lot of great DIY recipes and products that are so cute and easy! So I came across …

Liquid Lacquer- Finnigans Wake

Image
This is one of the early birthday presents I got from my good friend Stephanie over at A Little Polish. She ordered this special for me from Liquid Lacquer. As many of you know I used to work at Finnigans Wake in Pittsburgh. It's been a little bit over a month since they closed for good. I had a really tough time with the closing of Fins as I met a bunch of really great people there. I love and cherish this polish because it is a great reminder for some really great times in my life. I am happy to announce that I do keep in touch with many of the great people I met from working there. We meet up for drinks often and a couple of the boys even got a job close to Fins. Anyway, this is great polish with a great story! Thanks Steph!

So I bought this with a grab bag about a month ago and have finally gotten around to using it. I fell in love with KB Shimmer. I didn't have to fish for glitter and the jelly beauty is soo nice to stare at! I really liked this polish. The colors are beauteous and the removal is even better.

Tri-Color Challenge

Image
Last, but not least Tri-Color Challenge for April. I loved these colors and I am so bummed that I lost my creative mojo this month. Between work, house renovations, my kids, being sick, etc. this month was soo horrible for me. I must say that I am super proud of myself for sticking with all of the challenges and keeping up with my blog posts. Doing my nails is truly a sanity keeping and relaxation agent for me. Anyway, for these nails, I sponged the pink and orange in a gradient and then used the turquoise for the "wing" design. If you need guidance on this many, there are so many tutorials you can find online and even if you google "butterfly wings- clip art" you can find a lot of inspiration there as well.
