BPS Orange Glitter Gradient Mani + Mustache Ring;

hi :) continuing with more items from Born Pretty Store, here's an adorable mustache ring~


this is my instagram photo .. so thats why its kinda big. but anyway, isnt this mustache ring just the cutest!? when i saw it, i knew i had to have it~ ahaha. its also noteworthy to mention that the ring is adjustable... perfect :)


i also received orange nail art glitter. i took it and used it for a very simple mani ...

  4. Love the ring :D Have the same one! Your nails are so pretty and healthy! Are they real?
    Mine were like that once... now because of work they've started peeling and flaking despite putting on a base coat which claims to strengthen and protect :(
    If you have any tips, I would very much appreciate it!

    1. thanks so much Reb :) yea, my nails are real. they're not too healthy .. but they're good. haha nail strengthening base coats really differ from person to person, so its like a trial and error type deal. if you havent tried essie's grow stronger, i would recommend it -- same with poshe's nail strengthening treatment basecoat.

  7. What clear top coat do you always use? And do you have tips on how to keep nail polish nice for a long time? It gets clumpy so fast it seems like!

    1. i use poshe's super fast drying top coat, works wonderfully :) my polish lasts me for a week+ .. but the duration of a mani really depends on what you do on a daily basis.

    2. Cool, thanks!! Well, I mean for keeping it nice while in the bottle still. Not on the nails. :) Some people put it in the fridge, does that actually work?

    3. ooh .. hahaha my bad :P uhmm, i've heard about the whole keeping polishes in the fridge thing ... i havent tried it but im sure it works, not sure how much of a difference it makes on the polish though. polishes should be stored in a cooler room temperature place. all of my polishes are in my helmer in the basement -- its nice & cooler down there so my polishes are all good. the warmth / heat makes polishes goopy and thick so avoid hot places. if all else fails, apply nail polish thinner... not too much .. but you know, a good amount :P

  8. How did you use the glitter like that? did you dip your finger in the pot with the polish still tacky? Or do you pick up the glitter individually? Thanks! xo
