Did I just make my own prism?

What do you think? Does it look like a sally hansen prism? I saw on another blog that old loose eyeshadow or pigments can be used to mix in polish, I'm sorry I don't know whose blog it was, if it's you please let me know so i can credit your genius, so I added this old pigment that I've had probably almost 10 years and I don't ever use it so I had some clear and voila! I really like it and I love the fact that I recycled some old eyeshadow, have you guys tried this yet? The pictures are two coats and a coat of seche. I think I will name it homemade prism, or maybe not that kinds sounds cheesy lol. any suggestions on names?

This is an inside light shot, see how it looks green...

Nfu oh 50

This is my second nfu oh polish I've used and it does not disappoint, formula on these polishes is very good and the brush is very nice and dry time is great I was able to apply another layer right after the first layer dried, the first picture is one coat over black and the second picture is the polish by itself 4 coats and a coat of seche, this polish is definitely better for layering it's pretty sheer alone but I just wanted to show you what it looks like by itself.

Color club volt of light

Volt of light is from the electro candy collection, this is three coats and a coat of seche, this color is a bright yellow with mix of blue and green shimmer, application was good especially for yellow I don't know about anyone else but I sometime dread yellow colors because sometimes they take a ridiculous amount of coats but this one did not I was satisfied with the three.
(friendly reminder if you would like a chance to win this color and the set don't forget to enter my giveaway

Sally Hansen prism turquoise opal (borrowed)(pic heavy)

I was at my sisters house and she was going to paint our moms nails and I was looking through her stash and she has 3 prisms that I'm guessing she has had for a long time, I can't believe she had them! the one that caught my eye was this one turquoise opal it's beyond gorgeous, I put it on over my previous mani of the mood polish and it looks amazing! I could not stop staring at it, it changes from blue to green to purple and maybe more, I can now see what all the fuss is about, I don't know if I'm willing to pay the 30$ price tag they have on evilbay but I can definitely see why someone would, I would give my sister 20$ for it or any polish or polishes she would want out of my stash for it so sis if your reading if you ever wanna sell it let me know, but I don't blame you if you don't I wouldn't let go of this polish ever.
Sorry for so many pics I was trying to capture the many colors this polish changes too! Oh and sorry for the chipped polish on my middle finger I couldn't do a touch up, since I don't own it.

P.s I just got my nubar 2010 and had to swatch it over this mani so the last pic is nubar 2010.

Indoor lighting which actually caught the different colors better I think!

Mood polish

I got this mood polish at rite aid, it has no brand name that I know, it just says mood struck so I'm assuming that's the name and brand and then it says color changing nail polish since the polish has no name it just has a picture of the color it starts on then of the color it can change to, I say can because for the life of me I could not get it to change I tried hot water and holding the nails in my palms, and i don't  do hot so I was not about to go sit outside for 20 min in the blistering heat to see my polish change from blue to purple, so I'm sorry but I don't have a picture of the color that it changes into. Enough stupid banter on to the pics, the first is no top coat, now the finish of this polish is not shiny, but not quite matte somewhere in between, i wanna say satin, sateen? I don't know I could have sworn I seen that term on the blogosphere somewhere, If anyone knows the term please enlighten me, this is three coats, the formula is good, dry time decent. the last pic is one coat of seche.

p.s this polish cost 3.99$ at rite aid, I really like the color and would definitely purchase more.

I had the hardest time capturing this manicure it looks way better than my pictures are showing, I wanted to do a ruffian manicure and royal navy is such a gorgeous color I thought it would look great matte and I actually like it shiny better but in RL not in pictures so that's all for now, hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Pink ♥ wed, orly flirty

Happy pink wed, I think I may have said it before but I love an excuse to wear pink, I saw this color on another blog can't remember whose sorry but I loved it so much, I think it's one of those true barbie pinks and this has very nice shimmer, formula was a little on the thick side but its easily a one coater it did take a little longer to dry than I'm use to because I attempted some nail art and it got all dented and I was too bummed to start over, plus I had a screaming child wanting my attention lol she wasn't screaming just whining, ok well have a great pink wed people.

Extavagence indeed

Opi ds extravagance! Wow this color is amazing I'm so in love with it I just purchased this at ulta yesterday, boy is ulta a dangerous place for wallets I spent 60$ on 4 polishes, crazy I know, I'm sad that my pics did in no way catch even half of how gorgeous this color is in RL but I've seen on other blogs that it's pretty hard to capture it's true beauty, formula is a dream it applies perfectly and if your careful you can easily get away with one coat, I adore it so much Im debating going back and getting a back up, I got mine for 12.50$ at ulta, do you have this polish too? Do you love it too?
(sorry for so many pics i couldn't decide since they are all meh...)

Pink wed • sinful colors soul mate

Happy pink wed, fellow pink lovers this wed I wanted to show you my new fav pink soul mate it originally came out for valentines day, it's described as a muted peachy pink with a melon twist, I really like it and have nothing like it in my stash and it's a one coater! formula was a little thick but thats to be expected with a one coater, I did notice that it took a little longer than normal for dry time but not bad and I don't care I adore this color so much, and me being me I had to stamp it and ruin it, next time I'm leaving it alone it's beautiful on it's own. This is one coat and a coat of seche vite.

My first sponge Attempt

I've been wanting to try a sponge method its such a cool idea this one didn't not come out as great as I like but it was really simple and easy so I plan on trying again with better luck and maybe more colors I wish I would have done blue on the tips to make it look like sky gah! That would have been awesome, next time for sure. So for this mani I used:
Revlon beach
Orly coquette cutie
Sally Hansen HD cyber
Jesses girl firefly
BM 70
And I used a makeup sponge

Should I have did the palm trees upside down?

Before stamp...
Revlon beach by itself which smells so yummy like sun tan lotion but a good smelling one.

July favorites

Hello sweetie pies! Well here are my fav products for the month just some new things to me that I've been loving, so let's get to it..
1.) Sally Hansen nail file in fine: I love this file it's perfect for taking of the right amount and not too much which is what I use to always do and I would get all mad cuz I would file away all my length when all I was trying to do was shape them and the best price it was under 2$ at walmart.

2.) neutrogena fresh foaming cleanser: I have really bad adult acne and nothing has helped so I went to the dermatologist and she put me on meds and gave me a list of gentle cleansers to choose from I picked this one and I absolutely love it, it's gentle yet it gets all my makeup off and leaves me skin soft and super clean! It even takes off my mascara without leaving any residue or raccoon eyes, I've never had a cleanser that I didn't have to use oil or wipes first, love love this and I'm on my 2nd bottle and this is my go to cleanser.

3.) 4 way buffer block no name:I found at walmart in the travel section for .79 cents! I couldn't believe it and it works just as well as the expensive ones and I love how it's pink and purple.

4.) neutrogena foot cream: I have sand paper feet no matter what I do but I've been using this cream after every shower as sometimes before bed it feels like it soaks right in and I've notice my feet are softer than before but still not where I want them but I'm hoping after using this product longer my feet will eventually be soft.

5.) herbal essences long term relationship leave in split end protector for long hair: I recently highlighted my hair for summer and i regretted it because my looked and felt really dry after, but when I use this leave in conditioner my hair looks smooth and feels better and it smells so good.

6.) pur minerals 4-in-1 pressed mineral makeup:I received this in my Birchbox and I absolutely fell in love with it. I love the way it makes my face look, flawless and smooth and yet dewy all at the same time, I have been looking for a new powder foundation and I have found it, I'm going to purchase the full size when this trial size runs out but it might be a while because this is a pretty generous sample, thanks Birchbox, initially I was upset that I got this instead of the mini zoya polish everyone else got but in the end I'm so happy that I found my new staple powder foundation.

7.) Sally Hansen miracle cure for problem nails:I don't have problem nails really except i got some peeling but this said on the box that its guaranteed to stop peeling so I got it and I think it really works my nails are not peeling as much only a little left, so I seems to be helping.

8.) I forgot one other thing it's maybeline shine sensational pop stick in pink lollipop: I love how cute the packaging is and the product looks so cool how it's clear it gives my lips a very nice pink tint and smells yummy not much for moisturizing them but i like it anyway.

Milani 3d holos

I copied this from someone i just can't remember who?? If you know who please tell me! And it didn't come out the same way mine came out looking easter inspired I tried searching but I couldn't find it the blogger or post to see what i did wrong, so just a quick post since I didn't really like this one too much, and this is as good as my freehand skills go see how the lines are far from perfect, ok well ttyl my lovelies..
