Fair Isle Mani + BPS Brush Set Review;


This is my 300th post! :D

I received this 4 piece liner nail art brush set from Born Pretty Store (and the handles are covered in florals! 8D)

I whipped up this fair isle print mani up this morning (yes, this is my current mani! :D) using the brushes that were sent to me. My accent nail was inspired by coewless and mikamlau. I used China Glaze First Mate as base and paired it up with Floss Gloss Dimepiece.

March 2014 Manis;


and happy December! Can't believe it's already December and that the year is almost over! Today, I'm back to share some manis from earlier this year :)

I started March off with this mani.

Followed by this one.

This aztec-y mani was inspired by heynicenails. I used Floss Gloss Con Limon as base.

This was my damage back in March, haha.

A skittle mani with my, then, new China Glaze’s; from left to right, China Glaze - At Vase Value, Metro Pollen-Tin, Petal To The Metal, Grass is Lime Greener, What A Pansy, Too Yacht To Handle, Love’s A Beach, & Lotus Begin.

This watercolor floral mani was inspired by chelseaqueen. Excuse the lobster hand in the first pic.

I went to a Pistons game back in March and was planning on doing a Pistons themed mani … but then I ran out of time. So it looks like I was sporting a ‘Merica mani … hahaha

And that sums up March 2014.

Hope you all had a great weekend and great Thanksgiving!

February 2014 Manis;


I'm back with another post of my past manis! Here's what I was sporting back in February :)

This Stone Stud mani was one of my first manis back in February.

2 coats of Color Club’s Blue Heaven~ Photos do no justice and apologies on the lobster hands.

My Valentine's Day mani.

Glitter half-moons! ... uhm, not sure what polishes I used here. But my top coat smudged my polish T_T

A close-up ..

This summer seashell mani.

And probably my favorite of the month, this zig zag (chevron) mani that was inspired by my phone case. Again, not sure which polishes I used here.

That sums up my manis from February. I'll be back with my March manis soon :)

Hope you have a great Monday and week~

January 2014 Manis;


Still trying to finish up on posting all my manis ... so here is another post combining all the manis I did earlier this year in January~

I honestly cannot recall what the name of this Orly polish is ... x_x But bits and pieces of this mani were inspired by Nina of Nina Nailed It.

I ended up switching my nail shape to squovals and went with Serum No5’s Friendly Tiffs and Girl’s BFF for this mani.

Terrible florals, haha.

I really don't like it that these are called "negative space" nails. wth. I just really like designs and the fact that there's no base color~ Copped the middle finger design from Nina :D I’m not really into nail stripers … but SERIOUSLY, I love these Orly Instant Artist Water-Based Paint Strippers!

I ended up putting Salon Perfect “floam” polish, Kaboom, over my previous mani, making my nails look so ... thick & full of polish -_-

I wore this adorable mani in January also, and had previously made a post about it here.

Closing off my January 2014 manis, I have this one which was inspired by maya_tempaku.

Wheph! That's more than I remember but hey, now they're all posted, yay!

Hope your week has been going well~
Have a good one!,

December 2013 Manis;

hi! :D

It's almost been a year since I've done these manis but I haven't had time to post them ... so to catch up on it, I decided to just do a post joining all of the manis I did (and haven't posted) from last December (2013).

This mani was done early last December. Not sure what polishes were used here ...

This is Serum No5’s Snow In Love, LOVE IT! It's perfect for winter and it glows sooo beautifully!

(OMG, this is so messy, I can't believe it! -_-) Essie’s Van D’Go and Serum No5’s Girl’s Gotta Eat.

Ok, this one was from late November of last year but I'm just going to add it to this post too. Serum No5’s Gild Free, ivory base with multi-sized gold glitters & holo glitters, and Friendly Tiffs,a beautiful pastel blue creme with blue microglitters & some-frickin-beautiful-shimmer-that-I-cannot-put-into-words.

And in case you're wondering, this was the mani that I was sporting during Christmas 2013.

I still have lots of manis to catch up on posting ... but at least I'm done with the 2013 manis :D

Have a good one!,

D Rose Inspired Mani;


This mani was done almost a year ago when I went to a Pistons vs Bulls game. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Derrick Rose <3 He's probably my favorite-est basketball player so of course, I had to do a mani inspired by him~ :)
The mani consists of the Bulls colors, red, black, and white; his number, 1; the D Rose logo; and the Bulls logo.

Hopefully I'll be able to catch a few games this season :)

Have a good one!,

Twinning Leopard Print;


Omg, I am SO behind on posting my manis ... I did this one last October! How can I now just be posting it up? ... smh

My shirt & my nails are twinning! :) Can't believe it's almost been a whole year since I did this mani! I have no idea what polishes I used. And I can't believe this is the only picture that I have ...

Anyway, hope all is well!

Have a good one!

BPS - Diamonds and Round Holo Glitters Review;


I was recently sent a few new items from Born Pretty Store for review.

I received these diamonds, I believe they're the 5mm. The diamonds are individual, for this look, I used three diamonds. They're really pretty and shiny, they don't look plastic-y. For the base, I used OPI's I Theodora You.

For this look as well, I used OPI's I Theodora You as base. I received these round silver holo glitters (#1) and I placed them over 1 coat of Floss Gloss Dime Piece.

Inni Nail Stickers Review;


A while back, Katja of Inni Nails sent me some nail stickers for review.

I picked these stickers out, it's called City Rain. I paired it up with OPI's I Theodora You. Unfortunately, my nails were too short to use the whole wrap but it looks like rain on a window in the city. It's so pretty!

Not sure of the name of this sticker, and the ones to follow since I asked Katja to pick out the rest, but this is a beautiful and classic red half-moon design.

I paired these white-gray marble stickers with Essie's Strut Your Stuff.

This one is so cute! It's a dream catcher design and I used Essie's Beach Party for this mani.

Not sure what this design is, but it's unique. I used Essie's Urban Jungle here.

The nail stickers come on a sheet of 26, 13 sizes for each hand so you get a great variety of sizes to choose from, along with a nail file and instructions. The stickers are easy to use; they're not too thick nor are they too thin. You can see from my photos that some parts of the stickers did not stick on well at the edges of my nails, but I definitely enjoyed these. They're quick and easy, they look super cute, and they are easy to remove.

There are a wide variety of nail designs to choose from and you can even customize your own stickers! Check out Inni Nails for more information. A big thanks to Katja for the items for review.

Have a good one!,
