Hard candy Beetle

Love this color it's so beautiful! I searched many times at walmart for this and finally found one and it was like finding treasure lol. This color is well known around the blogosphere it's a gorgeous duo-chrome with many colors I see red gold and green and I wanna say purple I'm sure there are more but I can't really see them because today is so gloomy, Application was good this is three coats an a coat of seche, dry time was decent and I found the tiny brush very easy to use, overall simply adore this color and I feel very lucky to have it in my stash.

Hard candy mushroom

This color really grew on me I really like it, I've been wearing it for 3 days and only my thumb is chipping, formula and application were good it was opaque with two coats but this is three because I saw a bald spot on one nail, and a coat of seche.

Clarins 230 on Revlon Royal ( pic heavy why idk)

ugh!! The day I decide to use my unicorn pee the sun is not being kind to me! I'm sad I couldn't get any decent pics, so onto the crappy pics...

Revlon Royal

I've been lemming this ever since I've seen a few bloggers use it with clarins 230 and I finally found it when I went to cvs looking for this huge 75% sale everyones talking about but my cvs didn't have the sale :-( I was so sad! But then I found revlon royal so I wasn't so sad anymore, lol.

If u don't stamp it you loose it?

I got inspired by my daughters baby doll but when I went to stamp the dots because it's been a while since I used my konad, it was like when I first got it I wasn't stamping too good so please excuse my sloppy stamp I didnt have time to re-try.

I used Mac ice cream cake and Sally Hansen extreme wear in mint sorbet and BM19 and konad special white, which I'm running out of does anyone know of a good substitute? And then I used scotch tape for tip, and a coat of seche.

Mac ice cream cake

This is my first Mac polish it's from the quite cute collection. I'm a little disappointed because this polish was not cheap and I had to go out of my comfort zone to get it. First pros are I love the color and the bottle. Cons the formula was thick and spotty I needed 3 coats to get the opacity I liked, and then the brush had bristles that were bent and I had to cut them off so they wouldn't mess up application so that kinda upset me being I paid 15$ usd for this polish and it had a crappy messed up brush but I guess the cute bottle and nice color make up for it, will I buy any more Mac polishes? idk yet I'm on the fence maybe if more LE come out that catch my eye.

Nicole by opi drying drops

I've always known about drying drops but was always like meh... I never really gave them much thought always passing them up. But I finally decided to try them and I don't know how I lived without them! They work so well and they do everything they claim too! They completely dried my mani and moisturized my cuticles and I really liked the way they applied, if i have too many layers my mani tends to be only half way dried and easily dented if I'm not careful, but I didn't have to worry with the drops, I might be the only one who didn't know about these drying drops, I'm guessing these are the same as the opi drops since Nicole is by opi, but I just wanted to inform anyone who was like me and never thought twice about drying drops, I got mine at target for around 8$ usd.

Orly Gumdrop

I don't really have many greens in my stash let alone minty or creamy/ Pastel looking greens, so I've been trying to pick up a few here and there. I got this Orly Gumdrop at target, I adore the color it's very lovely. I'm undecided about how I like it on though, I don't know if it's that it doesn't look good on my skin tone, or if I'm just not use to wearing colors like this, and if maybe it's something I'm going to have to get used too in order to like it. What do you think? Overall it's a gorgeous color and application was fantastic it was almost fully opaque with one coat but I put too for a few blotchy areas very few, drying was great too final verdict I'm very happy with this polish. Please excuse my sloppy swatch I'm at work and couldn't do any clean up.

My first birchbox

I actually received it a week ago, but blogger was down and I couldn't post it. I was very excited to get my first birchbox, and I actually received mine later than some other bloggers, they got theirs earlier than usual so that way it came before mothers day. I got mine almost a whole week later, and I received different samples than other bloggers so I guess they are not all the same. What I'm most excited to try is the face mask, haven't tried anything yet, but will try to do a review when I do or at least let you know if I really liked any of the samples.

Pink wed • ruffian manicure with matte and hello kitty

I've done this mani over 3 times and I'm still not satisfied but I don't have time try again I was watching plasmaspeedo on YouTube and she did a ruffian manicure I really like the idea of it so I wanted to try it for pink wed and I had just got hard candy matte top coat so I wanted to try that too and I also just got my free image plate from the born pretty store hence the poorly stamped hello kitty I found this stamp a little hard to get perfect I need to keep practicing.
