First up we have Morgan le Fay.  This polish is described as a deep russet maroon holographic lacquer that darkens on the curve of the nail.  This polish is opaque in one-coat!  I used two for the photos below.

Next up we have Lancelot.  This polish is described as a rich bronze gold to green shifting duochrome polish with a holographic effect.  Such a stunner!  My camera didn’t pick up the duochrome much but it’s there, I promise!  Two coats for the pictures below!

And last but not least we have Excalibur.  This polish is described as a steely grey holographic glitter bomb and can be worn as a textured polish or with two thin coats of top coat for a glossy shine.  I used two coats for the pictures below plus two coats of top coat!

There you have it!  My picks from this collection are Morgan le Fay, King Arthur, and Lancelot.  I have nothing like them in my insane collection and the fact that they can double as stamping polish is a win in my book.  Stay tuned for some nail art with these beauties within the next few days.  I also done a live swatch video of all of these polishes on my Youtube channel if you want to see how they apply!

Current NOTD and why I’ve slowed down posting.

Hi there everyone!  I have a few things to talk about in my post today so bear with me.  Yesterday I decided to change out my manicure and put on a new China Glaze nail polish from their spring 2017 collection.  This color is SO beautiful!  Awesome formula and perfect for spring.  The color is called “Too Much of a Good Fling.”  Isn’t the name cute?  I’ll go ahead and post my pictures below.
china_glaze_too_much_of_a_good_fling
china_glaze_too_much_of_a_good_fling_1As you can see, my nails are round in these pictures.  My nails have been super brittle and breaking very easy.  It’s super depressing to not be able to hold a consistent nail shape for a long time.  When I wear square nails, the corners chip…. When I wear pointy nails the tips chip, and when I wear round nails I really don’t care for how they look on me.  SO last night I decided to do something that was super painful.  I made my nailbeds shorter by pushing the skin back under my nails and filing them square.  Once they grow out a bit more and heal I’ll change my mani, but that’s going to be a while.  This is the shortest my nails have EVER been.  Take a look down below to see what I mean.

Also, another reason why I’ve slowed down posting is I”m getting close the my limit on images here on my blog.  I’m going to have sit down in a few days and start deleting old posts to make more space… Or resize every single picture to a smaller file size (which I should be doing everytime anyways.)  It’ll be about 3 or 4 days before under my nails heal and I can put acetone on my nails without it hurting.  I’ll talk to you all until then!  Thanks for your time and support!

Rose Gold Roses NOTD!

Hey there everyone!  I bought some nail vinyls a few weeks back and decided to whip em out and play.  I have to say, they worked amazing!  These vinyls are by What’s Up Nails and are called their Rose Petals Stencils.  Stay tuned at the end of this post for a Youtube video showing how easy these are to use!  For the base color I used OPI Oh My Majesty! and for the roses I used Pahlish Quicksand.  On to the pictures!
rose_manirose_mani_01What do you think of my new nail shape?  I’m really loving it so far!  I think once my  nails get a bit longer I’ll be more comfortable with my new talons.  Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!

Inspired Floral Nail art!

Hey there everyone!  Ugh I feel like I say the same thing every time I come on here.  Anywho, I bought a beautiful bottle of lemonade the other day by a brand Belvoir Fruit Farms.  Let me tell you, it was the most tasty lemonade I’ve ever had and was well worth $2.50!  Also what drew me to it was it’s feminine colors and the pretty little flowers on the bottle.  My husband saw it and we both were thinking the same thing- Nail art!  I think I’m starting to rub off on him lol.  Base color is Sinful Colors 24/7 and the rest is painted with acrylic paints and my Winstonia Berry Wine nail art brushes!
bottle_inspired_art bottle_inspired_art_01And yep, you’re seeing that right! My square nails are gone for good.  They kept breaking, and my polish/nailart would only stay on for a day before they chipped!  Every time I go to roundish shaped nails my manicures last WAY longer!  I really love how this mani turned out.  Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!

NOTD- ILNP Mountain View!

Hi there everyone!  It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve posted.  The past day or two I’ve been sporting a beautiful polish by ILNP.  Mountain View is described as a fresh, forest green holographic nail polish with incredible depth and subtle blue undertones.  Also, it has pretty bronze/gold flakies throughout which makes it super unique to any of my other ILNP polishes I own.  This is my first time wearing this stunner since I bought it about 6 months ago and I can’t believe I’ve waiting this long to put it on!  On to the pictures!ilnp_mountain_view

I won’t lie, I was very tempted to do nailart on top of this mani (and I even started to on my middle finger) but I just love it on it’s own.  Don’t you agree that it’s too pretty to cover up?  Also, I’m testing a new top coat I bought at Sally’s the other day to see how much wear I can get from it.  I’ll give my thoughts on it once I’ve had this manicure on for a few more days.  Thank you all for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!

Simple flower stamping NOTD!

Hey there y’all!  😀  Today I pulled out a stamping plate that I’ve never used before and I have absolutely fell in love with it!  Bundle Monster’s quality for their stamping items continues to impress me and makes me go back over and over again buying their things.  For today’s manicure I used Sinful Colors Readie or Not and The Full Monte.  For the stamping I used BM-XL217 collaboration stamping plate.  I’ve finally found a hand pose that I love!  On to the pics.
bundlemonsterstampingbundlemonsterstamping_01I love the fact that Readie or Not stamps so well… It’s always a win when a polish can multi-task.  The Full Monte is definitely the perfect neutral pink and it has beautiful glass-fleck shimmers throughout.  Check out the shade down below to see what I’m talking about!
pinksinfulThose are supposedly new to Sinful Colors polish line, and I found them at Kmart.  I highly recommend getting them.  Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!
