Lady Bug Spill Proof Nail Polish Holder

Today I have a review for you on the Lady Bug Spill-Proof Nail Polish holder!!!! When I first received this product, I initially thought it was not something I would buy. BUT.... this thing is neat. =)


It has three slip-resistant plastic circles on the bottle, which allows the Lady Bug to stay in one place without slipping. 


It can be tipped on its side when polish bottles are low or it can sit straight up. I tried opening the bottle of polish once in the Lady Bug, and it opened with ease.


I did test multiple bottle shapes and sizes to include HITS, China Glaze, OPI, Funky Fingers, Nerd Lacquers, Lacquistry, Cult Nails, and Kleancolor. All bottles fit. The Styrofoam middle piece is flexible, but for some bottles I had to push in with a little effort (such as Funky Fingers), but all fit without a problem.

I also tried to knock the Lady Bug over to simulate a spill, and it didn't knock over. So it did its job!  


The Lady Bug Spill-Proof Nail Polish Holder retails for $7.95 on Amazon. 
This product was sent to me for review, but it did not affect my opinion. 

Will you be buying the Lady Bug?

Elemental Styles Fool's Gold and Iron Mania

Today, I have a review for you! Two lovely polishes from Elemental Styles, Whitney's Etsy shop that was recently launched.

The first polish is Elemental Styles Fool's Gold!!!!  My photos do not do this polish justice. This polish is so gorgeous. It has a metallic gold pigment with multi sized gold holo glitter. It does have full coverage in three coats (even though my photos make it look like it doesn't have full coverage. I promise you, it does!). 


The next polish is two coats of Elemental Styles Iron Man-ia. This is two coats with one coat of top coat.  It could have better coverage in three coats. But I liked it with only two coats--because it was more "jelly like". It is a lovely red jelly with fine red and gold glitter and large holographic gold hex glitter. You can really see how the glitter stands out if you look at the bottle in the photos. That is how the glitter looks on the nail. But the light reflects in the photos, so it is hard to see how awesome the glitter is.

If you are a red lover, this is your polish!



Whitney's polishes retail for $7.50, and they can be purchased on her Etsy shop! These polishes were sent for review, but it did not affect my review.


Dotting Tool Manicure

Sarah from Chalkboard Nails is hosting a nail art contest. The theme of the challenge is the dotting tool. I thought it would be fun to enter especially since I haven't used my dotting tools in a really long time. If you are interested in entering, you have until March 5th. You can read the rules here.

The base color on my ring finger is two coats of Zoya Kendal. I dotted random size of dots with my Bundle Monster dotting tools, OPI Rumple's Wiggin', China Glaze Sweet Hook, Sally Hansen Royal Purple Chrome, Kleancolor White, A-England Lady of the Lake, and Catrice Forget-Me-Not. I then added two coats of Essie Matte About You. 



You Mix Cosmetics Teal Abyss Magnetic Polish

I have been obsessed with magnetic polishes lately--buying more and more every time I turn around. What do you girls think about them?

This is one coat of You Mix Cosmetics Teal Abyss. This polish is SO beautiful--the perfect color!!! You Mix also sells really good magnets, which is what I used in this manicure. Photos show no top coat.

My polish friend Laurie has posted some awesome stamping combos with magnetic polishes, so I thought I would give it a try. I stamped on this random design with Red Angel Stamping Plate RA-120 and Ulta Quick Silver. I definitely picked the wrong design because it covered too much of the magnetic effect. Lesson learned....  


Konad M85 Review

This is one coat of China Glaze Cracked Concrete on my bare nail. I added the crackle polish over one coat of clear base coat (Orly Nail Defense). I was a little disappointed in this China Glaze crackle. I wish it would have "crackled" a bit more. I stamped on the design with Ulta Silver Rush and Konad Stamping plate Konad M85. The photo shows one coat of Northern Lights Holo top coat.


Here is another way to use Konad Stamping plate Konad M85. I stamped on this design on my bare nail with Kleancolor Metallic Aqua and Ulta Rock A-Billy. Then I used a dotting tool to add some random dots. The photo shows one coat of China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat.


This stamping plate was sent to me for review by Nail Polish Canada.
These plates retail for $8.75 with free shipping. They have several Konad plates available. Konad M85 and Konad M84 are new Konad plates now offered by Nail Polish Canada.

Overall, the Konad plate worked well. I did not have any issues getting the stamp to transfer. The only negative is the price especially considering cheaper options are available.

This is two coats of Pretty and Polished Jawbreaker with one coat of top coat. I absolutely LOVE this polish. It is (seriously) one of my favorite polishes.... Definitely in the top five!

Chelsea's shop will be restocked by the end of next week (as she is waiting on supplies)!


I stamped on a mix\match design with Kleancolor white and You Mix Cosmetics XL stamping plate I. You Mix Cosmetics is out of stock of these right now, but I have heard they will be restocking some stamping plates soon. I hope this is one of them! 

The ring finger has an extra stamped design. The design was stamped on using Bundle Monster Stamping Plate BM02  and Kleancolor Sapphire.

Pretty and Polished Elvis' Pink Cadillac

This is two coats of Pretty and Polished Elvis' Pink Cadillac. Chelsea is currently sold out of this polish, but it should be back in stock by the end of next week (hopefully)! This polish is a pink jelly polish with small and medium size black glitter.

Then I stamped on a large butterfly with Kleancolor Black and Konad Stamping Plate M25.

Update: Someone on Facebook had a really good question, so I thought I would update my blog post to answer it. She was wondering why my manicure showed none of the larger black hex glitters that are also in the polish. (I assume it was because she was wondering if the larger pieces were difficult to get out of the bottle).

Answer:  I purposely tried not to get the bigger hex glitters because I didn't want it to mask my butterfly stamp... I wanted the lines of the butterfly to be crisp (as the stamp had "a lot" of small detail if that makes sense), and I didn't want the larger pieces to block the lines of the butterfly from underneath or take away from the butterfly. Try and do a google search on the polish name, and see if other bloggers had opinions on whether or not the bigger pieces of black glitter were easy to "fish" out of the bottle. I hope this helps! I have seen many of my polish friends wear this polish, and I have NOT heard anyone say that the bigger black pieces are hard to get out.

How exciting... Amanda from Amandalandish went on vacation and asked me to be a guest blogger for her today. If you have a chance, check out her blog!!!!! 


This is two coats of Lacquistry Celery Stew with no top coat. Not a traditional Valentine's Day color, but......I think it turned out nicely....

Then I added one coat of Lynnderella The Glittering Crowd. I did not add any top coat because I knew I would be adding some rub on nail art stickers. These type of decals do not like to stick to slick surfaces. I purchased these super cute decals from EzNail. I love these --so fast and easy!




I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day!

This is two coats of China Glaze For Audrey and one coat of Lacquistry Valentine Shards. Jenna has a whole line of Shredded polishes. I just adore them... They sell out quickly, but I just checked her shop and she has some colors available now! 



I stamped on this design with Kleancolor Metallic Pink and Cheeky Stamping Plate CH5. Then I added the hearts with Kleancolor Metallic Purple and Cheeky Stamping Plate CH5.
