Liquid Lacquer OOAK Swallow Your Pride

Image
I got this lovely polish to use from A Little Polish as it was made as a OOAK for her! She loves these blue polishes!! Anyway, I finally got around to trying it and I agree, I love it! I usually don't do like blues, but this one is very pretty. Liquid Lacquer always has some great polishes and you should definitely  give it a whirl. I own several of her polishes and have yet to be disappointed. The formula is always spot on and the colors are always to die!!! Well without further ado- Enjoy!

Perlier Lemon Crackling Body Water

Image
*This product was given to me complimentary form iFabbo for my honest review and opinion



I have never heard of this product before, have you? I was so curious what exactly crackling body water was, so I took to the good ol' interwebs to do a little research. Of course, the first place I looked is on the HSN website where it is sold. The best and most accurate information always comes form the source itself. So, I am trying to find out how to use it, where it goes and if I need to do anything to prep my skin and I find out Perlier has an ENTIRE line of all kinds of beauty items. From bath and body to hair care to make up! Ohh my wallet is in trouble! Anyway, if you are looking for it on hsn website, you will need to search by "Perlier Lemon Sorbet Refreshing Ice Granita". Well this is what is it!

It comes in a 5.0 fl oz container. It looks like hair mousse. You can buy it for $24.50 (plus shipping) from the hsn website. I have a special offer just for my listeners for $5 o…

Summer Floral Summer Mani Challenge and Last Neons BOGO

Image
I have been trying to double up on some of my manis because I thought it would be a great idea to do 4 different challenges this summer! I have pretty good timing and a great scheduled, but sometimes I have to double up. I have been traveling just about every weekend so that puts a huge cramp in my mani time so I am lucky that I am able to do this. I decided to to my last neons as flowers. This weeks Summer Mani Challenge is flowers. I really liked the way this turned out. I made little flowers with my dotting tool on top of my Seche base coat. It has a shimmery/cream finish so it makes great undies sometimes- another BOGO!! Anyway, I dotted my flowers on and added some vines with my dotting tool as well. Enjoy!

Final Tri-Polish Challenge of June

Image
I decided to go a little out of my comfort zone for this one and do some "Abstract" art. I don't think I let my control go completely out the window because there is a little bit of pattern here, but for the most part I have asymmetrical lines, dots and randomness of colors. I think it looks a little sloppy, but hey- some call it art and some call it a mess! I think this will be one of the last abstracts I will do for sometime, well until I can let go of some of my control freakness. Well, without further ado... my tri-polish abstract...

Dollish Polish- Dyno-mite Yoshi

So, I occasionally ask my son to help me pick nail art to do or pick out a polish. I got a whole bunch of really great polishes from Morgan at A Rhyming Dictionary. She has great polish herself and puts together some really great grab bags. You all know how much I LUUUUURVVVVE grab bags!! Well, she put me into a no-buy for the remainder of the month. The Enchanted was totally worth it!! Anyway, my son picked this out for me because he said it was awesome that there was a Mario polish. Oh, the little things!

Tri Polish Challenge June

Image
This is the third installment of the June Tri Polish Challenge. I decided to do a cloud- skittle design. I think the cloud is soooo easy to do and looks so nice. Plus 3 polishes is the perfect number to do this art. Paint the full nail 1 color. In this case, I picked a different color for each nail (the skittle). Next, choose the next color and paint 3 stripes in the shape of stairs with the longest being half way down your nail. Lastly, repeat the last step with another color and a little smaller than the last set of "steps". Viola!!

Jindie Nails- Strawberry Cupcake

Image
Well here is another one of the gorgeous Jindie Nail polishes I picked up in the last restock. I love this color and have the clear base one from Hit Polish called Strawberry Shortcake. I love this color from Jindie Nails and got a lot of compliments on it! This also was surprisingly easy to remove. I have only met 1 Jindie that was very hard to get off- like I had to do the soak and scrape method! I told you, I think I am getting soft on all these pretty pastel colors! Maybe it's because we are out of the depressing, dark winter, but I am turning over a lighter leaf! Well ENJOY!

Well I ordered the Target Beauty Box (what feels like) about 6 years ago... jk- it's been about 6 weeks. I loved it and it was well worth the wait! Wait... did I mention this was only $5!! Since I got the $3 off coupon, it was really only $2. Glossybox cannot event come close to this value!!

Impromptu Holo Photo Session

Image
So I wanted to wear some holos because I have missed them in my life! I slapped on some beautiful Color Club holos and went to town. It also happened to be the only sunny day this week and I had a lot of running around to do! You all know that artificial light does nothing for holos and they always show their true beauty in the natural sunlight. This also happened to be the most traffic I have event sat in from my house to the grocery store. So, I decided- PHOTO SHOOT TIME! Rock it! As you can see, I snapped pics with all kinds of props. OPI polish, Tic Tacs, my shifter... Hey I have a lot of crap in my car, but it limited within my reach. So, I hope you all enjoy my impromptu photo shoot!
