I'm finally back with a blog post!!! I have been away for the last week visiting family for Thanksgiving! This is the mani I wore all week. (although it didn't really last the full week).

On the ring and thumb, I started with two coats of OPI Sparrow Me The Drama. I stamped on the owl print with Kleancolor black and DRK-B stamping plate. I added an extra pop of color on the owl's eyes with a dotting tool and Zoya Lolly. On the other nails, I started with two coats of Zoya Lolly (which I am disappointed in because I had tip wear the next day. Within two-three days, I had noticeably chipped nails. UGLY---especially when you are forced to wear for a full week). I stamped on the design with Kleancolor black and DRK-A stamping plate. I finished with one coat of top coat. 

Maya Cosmetics Shindig

Today I have a review on two polishes from Maya Cosmetics. You can visit Maya Cosmetics by clicking here. You can also visit Maya Cosmetics on Facebook. Her polishes retail for $8.

First up is two coats of Maya Cosmetics Shindig over Zoya Lolly and Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream. This polish has a clear base filled with small gold and white (almost clear looking) square glitter. The polish also has a very pretty gold shimmer (see close up photo below). This polish reminds me of winter (especially worn over a light blue). Application was easy, and a good amount of glitter comes out with each coat. The shimmer is more noticeable in person. My photo seems to wash it out a little.

Check out Pointless Cafe's swatches of Maya Cosmetics Shindig over black and gold! Also, check out Ashley is Polish Addicted's swatches over an orangey base. They are stunning!



This is three coats of Maya Cosmetics Ignis. This polish has a fiery orange-red base with a subtle appearance of multi-colored iridescent flakes. Photo shows one coat of top coat. This polish was a tad thicker than Shindig, but it did not effect the application. This polish screams Fall to me!

These polishes were sent for review.

I started with three coats of a lovely light purple holo polish, Mentality Nail Polish Fervor. (Click here to visit Mentality's Big Cartel Shop.) Photo above shows no top coat.


Next I stamped on the swirl design with DRK-B stamping plate and Kleancolor Metallic Purple. I added a little extra detail with a dotting tool and Ulta Quick Silver and Ulta Gold Rush. Photo above shows no top coat.


Here is the final mani with a coat of top coat. As you can see, the top coat smeared the stamped design. I think its cool how the top coat slightly smeared all the stamped dots evenly. It gives it a unique look. (I prefer how the mani looked pre-top coat)

I absolutely LOVE this mani! I have been wearing it since Sunday, and I will be very sad when I remove it this weekend. My inspiration for this mani came from Work Play Polish! Click here for the link to her blog post about it.

I started with two coats of OPI Did You Hear About Van Gogh? I stamped on the stripes and leopard print with Kleancolor Black and DRK-A stamping plate. I filled in the gaps of the leopard print with a nail brush and Konad stamping polish in red. My thumbs were a leopard print as well. I just love that pop of red against the soft tan and black! I finished the mani with one coat of matte top coat.

Over one coat of base coat (that completely dried), I added one coat of Mei Mei's Signature Black Crackle polish. Over that, I added one thin coat of Pretty and Polished Cheer Camp. Photos show one coat of top coat. I think this mani has a unique look. Thoughts?




Wearing Purple for a Reason

I don't have anything crazy today. I have been pretty lazy lately. This is two coats of Nailventurous The Shimmer Effect with two coats of top coat. I haven't worn one of my homemade polishes in a while (I do *not* sell polishes anymore. I haven't sold polishes since roughly July timeframe). I thought now was the perfect time to wear one! I chose this one for a reason: It's purple! A group of people are wearing purple on November 8 in an effort to join together in a No Hate Movement.

I wanted to point out that this polish was made back in June/July timeframe. Guess what? It's not perfect. It separated. The good thing is that it shook up in less than a minute! I have been wearing this polish since Sunday. No complaints. I have many polishes including industry brands that separate. Shaking fixes this "problem" with all my industry brand polishes as well as homemade polishes. It's interesting that some polishes do this while others do not. Just thought I would share!

I saw a few shatter (polish) half moon manis on Pinterest that I really liked (I especially liked one in particular. Click here to see it!). I don't normally do half moon manis. I am horrible at them. It never fails; the polish always leaks under the sticker. I decided to give it a try using a magnetic polish instead of a shatter polish. It looked better in my head, but now that it is executed, I am not sure I like the final look. What do you think about this look? (I thought about trying this with a magnetic polish that is similar to the color of the base so it blends more.)

The base is two coats of China Glaze 2NITE (LOVE this polish by the way), and the tip is a (goldish brown) magnetic polish called Toasted. This polish was bought from You Mix Cosmetics when they use to sale them.

I started with two coats of China Glaze Kinetic Candy. The Fall decals are rub on decals I purchased from EZNails online. Here is the link. They are simple to use. No water, no stamping, and no mess. All I did was cut the design off the sheet, place it on my dry nail, and rubbed it on. I finished the mani with one coat of top coat.
