Disturbia

31 Jan

Top of the morning to you! It’s tuesday, my late night. Blah. But all the same, i’m thankful for the extra sleep, which gives me more nail time. 🙂 Today’s post is thanks to my friend Becky! She chose purple! I can work with purple. While going through my collection, I’ve decided I have to do a full collection-collection of postings. I have no idea how I’ll accomplish that. But, one day! lol. Anywho, also, I discovered a purple polish I haven’t actually “swatched”. I’ve stamped with it but never got to do a full mani with it. So again, thank you Becky for picking purple.

This polish is by Wet’N’Wild and it’s called Disturbia. It’s a pretty dark color. Only thing is, took 3 coats to get the opaque-ness (not going to check that. lol.) I wanted. But other than that, it’s a very pretty, deep purple with hints of shimmer. I hope you like it! 🙂 Have a great Tuesday! God Bless!

Whimsical

30 Jan

Happy Monday to you all! I hope today goes by smooth and fast for you. Today’s post is about a beautiful find I found while picking up shampoo today. I had found this picture while browsing on Pinterest.com and I pinned it. You can find it here. Well, the color I found today is the exact replica; in comparison to  Deborah Lippmann’s “Glitter in the Air”, only cheaper. 🙂 Thanks to Revlon for making this a $3-something purchase rather than a $17-something purchase. The only down side to this color is that it’s very sheer and took about 4 coats for it to look somewhat blue. But other than that, i love it! Here is my newly purchased Whimsical! I hope you like it!

Franken First

27 Jan

Happy Friday to you! 🙂 I am happy to announce and post about my first “franken”. I’ve been reading a lot about franken posts and I had never heard of it. So, I looked it up. I’ve been wanting to try one but I didn’t have any empty bottles. lol. So, I grabbed a bottle that had a really pretty orange. I haven’t used it in a whiel and it was getting “old” and it was kind of at that goopy, throw it away, stage. So, I decided I’d play with that one. If I didn’t like it, it was past due anyway. lol. 🙂 So, that polish is called Tequila Sunrsie by Lycra/Rimmel. I then took an NYC polish called Love Me Red Creme – it’s a pretty pink with some shimmer. So, I just added some until I liked it. I tested on a “swatch nail”, just a single fake nail and I loved the color.

Also, I recently purchased a new set of image plates. I love them. The images are very different. I got them from Amazon and the set is by Red Angel. So, there’ll be a few pictures today. 🙂 I hope you like them! Have a great day! God Bless!

Colours from the Capitol- Hunger Games Collection

26 Jan

Hello All! I’ve been dog-sick all week. I caught a mean bug Friday of last week. I had a fever all day, aches all over, soar throat, sniffles and stuffs, the whole thing. Well, the aches and fever went away but my soar throat stayed and now I have this chest-burning-my-lungs-might-come-up cough. So, I’m sorry for the break in posts.

But I did find something awesome to blog about! 🙂 China Glaze will be releasing a color collection based on the book Hunger Games. EEEEEKSSS! I am a big fan!
