Wet N Wild-Bow in my Presence

Wet N Wild Bow in my Presence, this is probably my favorite one from the Be Jeweled Collection.

These aren't the best photos as I took them while sitting in the gallery during my lunch period trying to be as discrete as possible.  I actually paint my nails up there sometimes too! I always feel completely rude though, because I never know if it's going to bother someone or not but, no one has said anything to me so far about it. Plus, I only have 8 more days of my high school career left...I don't think I'd care all that much if they did anyways!

Bow in my Presence is a gorgeous mainly icy blue glitter with multi colored hex glitter floating around in it. It flashes mainly pink and sometimes purple.  I used 3 coat and needed 3 coats of my NYC top coat to smooth out the bumpies.

ASBMF: The Paper

It's Saturday night and here I am because my best friend ditched me and our plans to go get chicken and waffles for her birthday today, instead she went to  Mr. Hookah with some guys. Who does that? Honestly.  So I thought I'd share my latest challenge with you guys!

First off I started with a mani I did the day before using Confetti Lonesome Dove with Spoiled Trust Find Baby willy-nilly on the tips. That's probably we the problem started from, I don't think the glitter helped the newspaper transfer at all! 

With the newspaper transfer....
I used Vodka (don't worry I wasn't drinking it!) soaked my nails and the sheet of newspaper held it on for a few seconds and lifted it off. The only somewhat good finger I got was my pinky the rest looked ruddy and disgusting and the words barely showed up at all. I probably just need some more practice. 

Have a great Saturday night!

ASBMF: May Flowers

12 DOWN ONLY 2 MORE TO GO! I can't even believe I'm almost done with this challenge! It'll be the first one I've ever completed.

For may flowers I recreated a nail design I did last summer, it turned out  A LOT better this time! But my pictures are crap! So I'm going to post the old picture...don't kill me lol..... I feel like I'm cheating even though I'm really not!

Saved by the Blue and acrylic paint for the daisies

I can't wait to show you guys my fail of a newspaper transfer next!

Sinful Colors-Cinderella

I'm a little late to jump on the bandwagon with this one but Sinful Colors' Cinderella is gorgeous.  It's a perfect pastel baby shower blue with gorgeous pinky orange shimmer through out it.  I completely understand the hype surrounding this! It's perfection. Lobster hands won't even stop me from wearing this one! It was pretty runny, but not runny enough to flood my into my cuticles. 3 coats.

 My guy was kind enough to find these for me, he's such an enabler to my addiction! Look at his impressive packaging skills. I have no idea how none of the nail polish that he's ever sent me has never broken. He only wraps them in the plastic bag that they came in and sends them on there happy little way to my house.

Wet N' Wild Jewels for your Highness

Jewels for your Highness. Gorgeous mainly pink glitter, but in some lights flashes gold, silver and a little bit of purple. It also has a few multicolored larger hex glitter mixed in, which adds a nice touch if you ask me. This applied beautifully in 3 coats, dried quickly and I only needed two coats of topcoat to make it smooth! Unlike glitter polish is usually on me, which usually comes off my nails in an entire sheet, this stayed on with minor tip wear for about 2 days.

ASBMF: Chicks and Eggs

11 down 3 more to go! I can't believe I'm almost done with this challenge!

For today's challenge I did a simple french manicure using ChG Lemon Fizz and WnW french creme.  Super simple but I loved how the yellow and white french reminded me of chicks coming out of their eggs!
Lemon Fizz was a pain the butt to apply though, I don't know what got into my bottle, but there were little black hairy type things coming off the brush every time! I guess I just need a new bottle.  It was super streaky and I needed 3 coats for it to become perfect.  I'm in LOVE with pale yellows now...does anyone know of any other good ones to get?

Have a great weekend!

Hard Candy Envy and Inglot 203

I can't get enough off flakies lately! This time I applied Inglot 203 it over Hard Candy's Envy. Envy is a dark green almost of the verge of black and applied perfectly in two coats.  Envy really helped 203's dark blue flashes stand out a lot more than I've ever noticed before!
The only bad thing I've noticed about Inglot's flakies is that they seem to take a very long time to dry even after using a fast dry topcoat which, isn't necessarily a bad thing just gives me more opportunity for accidental smudges!

ASBMF: Butterflies

10 down only 4 more to go on this challenge! Today's challenge was butterflies and I thought I'd try out the cheapy stamping set I bought at Sally's a while ago. For my first time ever stamping I didn't think I did all that badly! Would have been better if the other half on the left wings transferred on to the nail but I figured I 'd take what I could get.  My base color is Color Club Hydrangea Kiss.  It's a beautiful periwinkle blue. Perfect for spring. It applied perfectly in two coats.

Color Club- The Lime Starts Here



Holy Crap.  That's green.

The Lime Starts Here is from last years Wicked Sweet collection and they're scented! 
Pain the butt to apply though, just like any neon polish is really. I used two coats WnW French Creme with 3 coats of The Lime Starts Here, probably could have used a fourth actually.  I had no idea how bright this was actually going to be once I got out into the sun with it!  I could see this as a beautiful summery pedi color.
The scent of this one is of strong lime candy! Not so strong that it will give you a headache, but strong enough when I wear it I'll be sure to attack people to smell my fingers! LOL.

ASBMF: Fresh Cut Lawns

Happy Cinco De Mayo! I didn't do any special manicure this time like I did last year....

 Because this is what happened. Did I cheat making the flag? You betcha.  Did my ring finger match Zoya Caitlin? Nope.  Did I love this? YES, yes I did. I need to do this again sometime actually! It was so simple! All I did was print out teeny tiny Mexican flags and cut out the little middle part. Impressed quite a few people with my "painting" skills. lol!

 Back to my ASMBF challenge-

I almost feel like I cheated on this one, because when I think of my lawn when its freshly cut it's always the stain you get on the bottom of your shoe! When everyone else is most likey going to be doing some beautiful nail art design, I stuck with Don't Mess With OPI.

I LOVE this nail polish! It's an absolutely perfect grass green and I never have any problems apply it.  The Texas collection was actually one of the first times I bought an entire collection of because I loved it so much! I even got the salon display with it!

I hope you guys have an amazing weekend!

Autism Awareness-Blue Fish egg

I have one last blue mani for you today! Obviously this is May 1st and not April...but I had to post it anyways! This was  done before I got fish egg mani out and I love this! I wore this to class and got so many compliments on it! I used OPI Russian Navy for the accent nail and Sinful Why Not for the rest.
