Stressful Day Pick Me Ups

I had a pretty rough day yesterday, for some reason all the stress and sadness of my break up just hit me hard. So whats a girl to do? Go out and buy more nail polishes of course! In Ulta I saw that Sally Hansen has come out with crackle nail polishes, I scooped up the silver one called "Fractured Foil" There were also crackles in gold, purple, white, black and pink I believe. I'm going to have to go back and scoop up some more!
Then, I saw that their Essence section had some new polishes in, so of course I scooped them up. In order from left to right: You Belong To Me, Just Rock It!, Where is the Party?, and What Do U Think?
In Bed Bath and Beyond! I found that they have a new Color Club display where I scored these two beauties: Wild and Willing and Koo-Koo Cachoo! These are my first Color Club polishes :)
Back in Ulta, on my way to the check out these caught my eye. Essence now has Nail Fashion Stickers, so I scooped up two different patters and I can't wait to give them a try :)

Shopping sure does cheer up a girls heart <3

80s for the Ladies

Every Wednesday at my favorite local place they have 80s for the Ladies, which is just a fun night of 80s music and amazing drinks!! To prepare for a night of flashback fever, my friend and I decided to be festive! So, I used Sinful's Cream Pink polish. It's a really beautiful pink with tiny tiny flecks on gold in it. I had to use 3 coats to get it to a nice thick coverage.

Then using Sinful's Snow Me White, I stamped my nails using the new bundle monster plate BM-203. I love the new BM collection, the full nail stamps are bigger and I just find the quality of the prints comes out much smoother. Don't mind the funkiness going on in some of the nails haha, painting names while drinking daiquiris was hard after a few! haha!

I'll see if I can get some pictures of my friends nails to share :) Thanks!!

Lava Nails

I got to have a super fun girls night with my mom and puppy the other day since my dad went out of town! We took the opportunity to order chinese, watch Americas Next Top Model and paint our nails! I swatched my Sinful "Dream On" and I'll be honest, I hated it! It was a really thin forumul and it dried extremely matte for some reason. See the picture below, please excuse the messiness of the mani :P
So I seriously , seriously hated it...And felt that it was the perfect opportunity to try out my just arrived Nubar Polish in G188, and I LOVE IT!!! this polish is super fantastic! It was like painting lava on my nails, love love love it! I got it off of Amazon for around $8 shipped! Couldn't beat that!
Lots of new manis coming up!! In the process of switching over from my dell to my new macbook pro...and it's incredibly confusing!! <3

I'm so sorry for my delay in updating! Things have been incredibly hectic between my semester in college ending, and my relationship with my boyfriend ending as well. I'm finally getting a chance to sit down and show you my pretty nails! I decided to make a fun solar system style mani for the past few days. I added the glitters on in slight layers to get the "rainbow" effect in the colors, best seen in the picture below of my thumb!
I started with 2 coats of sinful's "What's your name?" A fun black with hidden iridescent shimmer (I tried to capture it in the image below!)
Follow by a layer of Sinful's "Call you later" green glitter, then "Nail Junkie" topped with Sinful's "Hottie"
Thanks for checking out my blog!! :) Please subscribe! When I reach 30 follows I plan on doing a really fun giveaway!!

Summer Time Blues

I've been going to the beach often with my friends now that summer has arrived! Living in Florida has its perks :) In the spirit of my upcoming cruise to the Bahamas with the boy, I swatched my new Sinful Colors "Fly Away" polish! I'm loving the rich creamy pacific blue of this color. I applied 2 coats of SC and then one top coat of SV. I loveeee this color!

The funness of this color reminds me of summer time immediately :) Stay tuned for more swatches of my new sinful colors collection :)
