A break, an epic win, and the smallest canvas...

Hiya! So yeah you will soon understand the title. But first let me show what's on my nails today its sinful colors what's your name then I sponged on pure ice heart breaker and then put some nfu oh 52 on the tips, what do you guys think? I love what's your name because it's a dupe of opi unripened.

sinful colors whats your name by itself

So first the break is all about my awful nail break, it seems like as soon as my nails get the perfect length one breaks and forces me to trim them all down so I thought I would share with you guys who better to vent to then my fellow polish addicts only you guys understand how upsetting it is, so check out the atrocity...
Isn't that the saddest ish ever? Ok well I quickly got over that when I found out I won a giveaway for the hits holo polishes from the-polished-perfectionist I was so gosh dang happy, me and fingers came to an agreement that I had a permanent dorky kool aid smile all day! wouldn't you? It's like the most epic win! I still can't believe it...

Now for the smallest canvas part, enjoy....
It's my 2 year olds hand she asked me to paint her nails she said she wanted pink. Then after I painted her nails as best as I could with her constant wiggling she ran over to my light box and posed and said momma look at my beautiful nails so I snapped her picture, she makes momma so proud!

notd & A Thank You.

Today I'm wearing catrice welcome to the jungle. I won it in a giveaway by martje from girly-addictions. She was so sweet and generous because I got a really awesome prize it was packed full of all kinds of goodies and treasures. It really made me so happy! So thanks so much martje ! If you don't already know of her you should for sure check her out.

Onto the polish, it's beautiful! I love it and I think it might even satisfy my lemming for butter London wallis it's more green but definitely giving me the same kinda look and effect. This is two coats and a coat of seche vite and a nail sticker that I actually won from another giveaway! I know I just love our little blogging community and that's why I do give aways to give back since I've won so many, more followers is just a really nice bonus.


(crappy work lighting the writting on my hand is what time I clocked out for lunch)

(unnecessary bottle shot, yes i tried to put a jungle setting ha ha me silly lady)

( my goodies! thanks again martje)

( I just adore this ring!)

Hits mari moon cutie pie

So I made my first llarowe purchase, I got two hits mari moon polishes and I have one to show you today. First I just wanna say that I was really satisfied with my whole transaction with llarowe. I ordered very easy and shipping was such a steal, Im such a cheapo when it comes to shipping I will wait forever just to pay the least in shipping costs. I was amazed how little shipping cost and how fast I still received it, that's a huge plus for me. They made sure to keep me well informed through the whole process, and my polishes were wrapped so well and protected, overall I was extremely happy with the whole order and I wish I wouldn't have waited so long to order some of the amazing polishes. Sorry for all the ranting I just wanted to share in case anyone else was maybe hesitant in making a purchase with llarowe.

Now onto way too many pictures of hits mari moon cutie pie, I just got my Ott light and I couldn't pick just one. Because I still need practice getting a picture I'm happy with. Plus this polish is beyond amazingly gorgeous I was just trying to capture the beauty. This is two coats and a coat of seche vite. I'm usually a habitual three coater but I didn't wanna waste it. Formula is perfect there was a bubble but that was user error. I read on another blog that the brushes on these were messed up but were gonna be fixed, which must be the case now because my brush was perfect. I am in love with this polish. How about you?

P.s what's mari moon? Im so out the loop does it have something to do with sailor moon?

Nabi • blue star

Hi there y'all! Today I'm wearing an untried my dad gave me for christmas. Its by Nabi and its called blue star, I don't see any blue in this color so the name doesn't make sense to me. I'm kinda on the fence about it. It's prettier in the bottle, and if you know me you know I'm not to crazy about bar glitter, and this has silver holographic bar glitter. It has a strong smell too my co workers loved smelling it though, they said it smelled good ha ha so funny, alrighty well that's it for me today, c ya!

Purple reign saved my day...

So I was having the absolute worst day for stamping I couldn't get the image right, it kept coming out all lopsided and missing parts, and I was getting so annoyed and depressed about it. 

Sometimes I feel like there are so many great nail bloggers who are so fantastic at nail art and stamping that I feel like I don't really bring anything to the table. Now don't get me wrong I don't pity myself for too long because, I remember it's for fun and I really enjoy it, so I snap out of it.

 But today pure ice purple reign totally cheered me up, it's one of my untrieds and it's so damn beautiful that I got over my failure, and was happy with just this beautiful polish. All by itself no stamp or art. I know there are some nail snobs (yeah girl I'm talking to you) but I think that they will be missing out on this polish if they don't snag it up at the bargain price of around $2. What do you think?

Now because I will wear my nail art failures proudly, I will show you my two failed stamping attempts worst one last. I think I had just lost all hope by then I couldn't even tell you what I was thinking towards the end of it, please enjoy!

So yeah the last one I had a picture in my mind and then when I couldn't stamp for ish I just said f it and just did whatever and no bother for cleanup since I immediately removed it, but it's progress I guess…

Notd & new nail polish storage

Well how do you do? I'm kinda sick at the moment I've been in bed all day trying to sleep it off. I did this mani yesterday, but I still have it on. I used Barry M for the first time this is dusky mauve it's so beautiful it has very nice pink shimmer, then I placed some stars from Kleancolor blind date it's ok I guess.

Then I got a new storage for nail polish I used to have handmade racks that I loved, but I don't have the counter space in my new spot for them. So I had to do something else. I was checking online for ideas and I found on temptalias blog that she got a dresser thing from Ikea that she said fits the polish perfect, so I got it and I really like it. All my polishes fit perfectly and I have plenty of room for more! Yay I present you the Alex from ikea...

P.s yes I built it all by myself I was so proud that I didn't need anyone's help especially not from a man.

Review: organix macadamia oil shampoo and conditioner.

   I purchased this for $7.99 each at target. First off this smells good not anything that stands out but not at all bad. I didn't notice anything to special while using it in the shower, but I noticed my hair felt amazing after putting in the leave in dry oil treatment. My hair was instantly tangle free the brush went through my hair like it was butter! Not a tangle in sight. And then after it dried my hair was so soft and shiny and smooth and I noticed this after one use too. Now I don't know if it was the whole line that made my hair gorgeous or if it was just the leave in dry oil but I like it so much I don't really care. 

  Final verdict: I love it, made my hair soft smooth and shiny, I will definitely be repurchasing this when I can afford it, it's kinda expensive but worth every penny, I definitely recommend it, and can't wait to try the awapuhi scent from this brand.

Have you tried it? If so what is your opinion?

Review: gud from Burt's bees

 Hi there! How are you? I'm okay I haven't really had time for nails but I did pick up two new(to me) shampoo and conditioners and I thought what the hey let me share my opinion so here we go...

I purchased the pearanormal activity scent at target for $6.99 each and I must admit it was the packaging that lured me in I am indeed a sucker for cute packaging, marketing well done.

So my opinion on it is that it smells amazing just so yummy and the smell lasts for hours I still smelled it after 8 hours of work. But that's about all that's good about it. I didn't notice any difference in my hair it wasn't smoother or softer or shinier it just smelled good. And one thing I didn't like about the line is that it didn't have a leave in treatment or conditioner.

I am also addicted to leave in conditioner and I have to use it everyday after the shower and I like it to be from the same line as my shampoo and conditioner so that's a huge con for me.

So my final verdict: smells amazing and the smell lasts a long time. Yes, I would purchase it again for the smell alone. But I wish it made my hair softer or smoother and I wish it had a leave in treatment.

Have you tried this yet? What do you think? Do you like or hate it?
