Swap with Cathy from More Nail Polish :)

Hey everyone!!

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. We had a girl just stop coming to work, no notice or anything, so I had to pick up quite a few shifts which sucked :/. Anyway, its pretty much all back to normal now so expect regular posts again!! I missed it so much.

A couple of weeks ago Cathy, from More Nail Polish, and I did a swap. She frankend me up some magnetic holos and I sent her the KleanColor chunky holos which I may have to buy myself now after seeing how beautiful the red one was on her blog. She sent me black, blue, and green magnetic holos and it was love at first sight. Naturally though, I went to put on the green one and could not, for the life of me, find a magnet anywhere! I was so set on the color though that I had to put it on anyway. You can't find a dark green holo anywhere so I was so excited about this one. Its beautiful, I think Cathy should start a polish shop :) what do you guys think? I used two coats for full opacity and gosh am I in love!!!! Click to enlarge the pics :)

I will have another post up soon of either the blue or black holo ones because I went out and bought a magnet :) I cannot wait to try them out. I am so so so in love with them!!! THANK YOUUUU so so much Cathy!!!!!! You're awesome!!!!! Talk to you guys again soon!!

NOTD Zoya Bela

Hey lovelies!

Today I have for you another Zoya that I got because of seeing it in the movie Black Swan. When I was watching the movie, being the polish lover that I am, of course I noticed the nail polish bottle in the one seen and had to have it and find out what it was. It was Zoya's Bela and it fit perfectly with the ballerina look.

When I put the first coat on I thought to myself, "oh gosh, this is so sheer no one is even going to notice it". When I put on the second coat it surprised me and actually had quite a bit of coverage and then by the third coat it was mostly opaque. Sooo, basically you could use this as a sheer wash of color alone or for a french mani but you can also build it up to a beautiful, light, milky, jelly pink. It's a real multi-tasker. :)

It's a beautiful color and it makes for a nice break from all the crazy and bright manis I've been doing lately. Also, I should add that I used Seche Vite as my topcoat here and had no problems with it. I've read in several different places that it causes bad things to happen to an other wise great mani when used with Zoya but it looked smooth and worked as wonderful as ever for me. I hope that you guys enjoyed and let me know what you think of the color. Will you be picking it up?

Until next time!

Fourth of July Mani!!

Hey everyone!!

I hope you guys are all having an amazing long weekend! I know I am! I wanted to do something fun and interesting considering all the fire works that go with the fourth are so beautiful. I saw the splatter mani that The Polishaholic did and immediately thought that I had to try it. I used colors from LeChats Dare to Wear Back to Basics collection that I did a review on here. I seriously cannot even explain how in love I am with this mani. I will definitely be trying this again with different colors!!

This was my first attempt at this and I think it went really well. The technique wasn't hard at all and I've already gotten a lot of compliments on it today which is usually when I know a mani is a winner. Also wanted to let you guys know I finally have the picture up for my giveaway post! I hope you guys have a great Fourth of July!!! Thanks for reading!!

NOTD and Giveaway Update

Hey girls!

I hope everyone is doing well! In light of the amazing weather we've had the past few days, which is very unusual for Ohio lately, I had to put on a holo. I also thought it went well with my giveaway going on right now. I chose one of my favorites, China Glaze's Lets Do It In 3D, I couldn't have picked a better color because when I was in the sun I could not take my eyes off my nails. It took only two coats and it was flawless, no dragging whatsoever. Onto the beautiful pictures, click to see more detail :)

Artificial Light

This definitely made my day and its hard to keep myself from repainting my nails this color when I do my next mani. It just catches the eye like no other. It's also unusual because of the fact that its a grey-black holo, you don't see those much. No doubt I'll have this on my nails sometime soon but for now I'll change to something new :/

I just wanted to let you guys know that I will also be adding another Ozotic Pro holo (511) to the giveaway. I've had it in my stash for a little while and have never used it. Not being much of a pink lover I suppose it doesn't appeal to me as much as my darker holos. I'm a sucker for dark colors in general. Anyway, I'm adding it to the giveaway in the hopes that it will go to someone who appreciates it a whole bunch!! Until next time!
