Nail Challenge Collaborative #4

Image
Last one... and of course I started doing these lovlies about a year ago when everyone was doing the gradient tips, I took the back way- like always and did the opposite. Like instead of looking like the tips are dipped in glitter, it looks like the tips were dipped in polish. So, to recreate this look it's pretty simple, but time staking.
First, start with a base coat.
Second, dip a blob of glitter at the base. Thirdly, slowly pull the glitter up from the blob. Pull it up in varying strokes to create a blended look. The Liquid Lacquer I used is totally packed with glitter, so it was a little harder to pull. The idea is to make the bottom look thicker or more opaque than the top.  So this is it... Slightly hard to photograph because of all of the sparkle, but you get it!

Tri Polish Challenge September 4

Nah nah nah nah nah.... I  made it bitches!!! All four, count em ONE, TWO, THREE and this one :) I finally got to my stamping!! My lovely daughter has been going through this no-sleep thing. So, the little darling sat up and watched me stamp. I decided to do something really sweet and simple. Cute little flowers. All of the colors that I am using this month remind me of little dainty flowers and I am really glad that I got to do some stamping. Again, here are the colors I used....

These are my stamps!

Avon Polish Review

Image
*This polish was won in a giveaway Well ladies and gents- this is my first Avon Polish that I have ever tried. I won it in a contest given by a blogger. I am very grateful that I won her contest, she, shortly after decided to kick me and several other people out of a facebook group. From what I gather, it was because I was in another group that she didn't like some of the girls. So, as I said, I am very grateful for the win, but kinda confused and ungrateful for the boot! I hate to even write that, but I usually do a huge- giant loving to all my wins and the bloggers that I won from, but *shurgs* can't do it for this one. Booooo

Anyway, since I hate drama and avoid it- that's all I will say about that.

So this is Avons version of a holo and I am diggin it. It is not slammed with beauty like the Color Clubs, but it has just enough to bump it over China Glazes poop in a bottle they call holo.It was very gorgeous once it dried and very nice to apply. I really am digging the …

NUMBER THREE!! I made it, I made it, I made it!! Ok, so I have been missing the stamps in my life and I wanted to not lose the touch, so tonight I wanted to do a little stampy stamp for you. Well, my daughter decided it was play time at 9pm and my joys of stamping got squashed. So.... Default? Dots!!
Also, I wanted to tell you that I have a huge mega huge giveaway that I am scheming with some other fabulouso bloggers. I cannot wait until it rolls out-- SEPTEMBER 30th BABY!!

Anyway, you know the deal by now. Three colors. Same brands only. Four days. Four different designs. Here's the colors I am using this month. We had to pick a lilac, blue and pink.

Perlier Volcanic Thermo Scrub

Image
*I received this product for the sole purpose of honest review from iFabbo So, as many of you know I work with a company that often gives me these great products to review. The first was this really awesome stuff called Crackling Body Water. I still use it- often!! Perlier has really great quality items. I receive the Volcanic Theromo Scrub a couple weeks ago and I finally got a chance to use it. When using these great products, I don't like to have them interfere with any other products that I may be using at the time. So, I like to wait until I am product free before moving on the the next. I finally got to use it and it was so awesome. I have used several body scrubs in the past, but I have always found something that I didn't like. For example, they were too rough or left my body feeling too greasy. 



The Perlier Volcanic Thermo Scrub was just right for me. It had a mild amount of scrub so that some of my skin was left smooth when I was done. It also left my skin feeling cl…

Fancy Pantsy by Barielle

Image
* Product(s) in this post company or Public Relations Representative for an honest review. Please see disclosure statement page for further information . Yeah!! So, I mentioned this briefly in an earlier post but I am so excited to announce that I have started a reviewing relationship with Barielle. If you don't know about this company, you must. So, I will inform you a little. I have used a couple Barielle polishes in the past, but never really paid attention to the application, smell, wear, etc. I knew that it was a good polish, so I kept all of them. This time around, I paid close attention to all of my criteria and came across the same conclusion. I really like their polish and will continue to keep, buy and use Barielle products. So, this is the first polish I was reviewing. It is called Fancy Pansty and I love love love the color. It is a coral pinkish color and it has a nice shimmer in it.

The Nail Challenge Collaborative Technique 3

Yeah yeah yeah!! This one was not so much of a fail, but it was my first water decal application, so not bad. I won the water decals in a giveaway and I was super excited to share them! I used Bettina- Watermelon and China Glaze- For Audrey as my colors. I loved this color combo. It was so bright and vibrant and really looked awesome with the black and white of the water decals. I love the turquoise and pink combo so hard!
Anyway, without further yip yap-- Nail Challenge Collaborative Part 3.
