31 Day Challenge-Day 4:Color Green

Hello Everyone! sadly my summer came to a complete stop! I started school yesterday boooo! Lol however I must make time for my lovely blog :) today is Day 4 of the 31 Day Challenge and the color is Green! I really love various shades of green and my hubby's favorite color is green...... anyway today I present to you Essence-Snow White:Bashful. To make things Interesting I came up with the idea of making a snake or reptile pattern look which I'm not sure if it quite worked out.
 I used China Glaze-Unpredictable to stamp on this pattern that looked like snake skin (Bundle Monster-215) it was more of a random stamping lol then I used the same pattern and stamped it in black. Idk I think I fell short today!

Polish Used:
Essence-Snow White:Bashful 
Description: A forest green creme packed with gold shimmer! it is absolutely beautiful! I used 2 coats because it did drag just a little bit
China Glaze-Unpredictable (for stamping)
Wet n Wild-Black Creme ( for stamping)
-Stamp used-Bundle Monster 215 
IRL this shade is just Slightly darker



What do you ladies think does this look
anything reptile like?

These Gals Sure rocked green a lot better than I Did!


XOXO

31 Day Challenge-Day 3:Color Yellow

Can I start this off by saying I HATE the color yellow lol! To me it's just such an ugly color i don't know why, however that doesn't stop me from buying them which is stupid, I guess I am hoping to find a yellow I will actually like, Oh Well the search continues. Today's Yellow polish is Catrice-Twist Of Lemon

Polish Used:
Catrice-Twist Of Lemon
Description:A Shimmer packed sunshine yellow that requires at least 3-4 coats for no VNL.
For the Splatter I Used Acrylic Paints-White,Black-Purple,Yellow

-Sorry I Have No Picture of the color on It's own I forgot to take one before the splatter!
Can I just say that doing this splatter mani was a pain in the A** seriously way to messy.

Have you tried the splatter Mani yet? if so what are some suggestion for a Less messy way to do it?
On another note i'm in the mood to play some relaxation nature sounds music and sleep!! lol anyways....

Take a Look & see what these Dolls Did For Today's Theme

I Been Bit By The Indie Bug!

I have been bit by the indie bug! I now find myself browsing through Etsy Obsessing over these hand made little bottles of joy, OMG if I knew how awesome most of the polishes are I would have caved in and bought some a lonnnnnng time ago. For My First Indies I bought 7  KbShimmer's! They got here today! the shipping was so fast! Oh and on another note I became an Ebay Junkie LOL finding great deals on polishes is such a rush ( wow that made me sound like a junkie LOL) I recently won a Bid on Layla Hologram Polishes 6 for $40! being that they are $15.50 a pop I think I got a good deal, No?












I couldn't wait so I used A Polish Introducing
  KB Shimmer-Shipwreck
Description: A royal blue jelly with purple,blue,green and dark blue glitter, seriously it's beautiful!
and it applied great,the formula was flawless I did 2 coats over 1 coat of Butter London-Blagger

Use Your Fan Brush

If there was one thing I didn't know how to use when I received my set of nail art brushes was the......Fan Brush, Lol like seriously I was like "what the hell is this"..to me it was a brush that had no use until today, I finally brought it out to play. I started by first painting my nails with a base color of choice(China Glaze-Elephant Walk) then I took the fan brush and dipped the tips into the acrylic paint, wiped off the excess and lightly brushed it against my nails. & this is what I ended up looking like. Enjoy :)

Polish Used
-China Glaze-Elephant Walk ( 2 coats)
-green,gold,navy blue, purple,lilac,
orange,white,gold: Acrylic Paint. ( for brush strokes)
Will you be putting your fan brush to use?

XOXO

Ivader zim Guest Nails

Hey Pretties Sorry I haven't been posting lately, I have actually been working on a DIY project, I have been wanting a nice storage space for my  nail polishes because I hate having them in drawers plus it's much easier to see what you have when they are nicely displayed,no? Anyways so I went all out and built a shelf from scratch with wood (well technically my father built it for me) lol I just made it pretty. Once I have it up on the wall I will show you ladies and give you measurements and such!.
So On to nails, Unfortunately yesterday I broke my pinky nail so I will most likely be getting an extension on it today, if possible. Until Then here are my 12 yr old sisters nails which I did on her request, Invader Zim Nails. (well this is Gir, instead of Zim, lol)

Polish Used: Bettina-Purple(2 coats)
Description-This purple creme is absolutely beautiful even though there is nothing special about it the formula was AMAZING, I used 2 coats and it dried fairly quick.
Glitter Polish: Jordana-Cosmic ( one coat)
Left Hand:Gir In his costume & a cute little moose
Right Hand: Robot Gir And A cute little piggy.

Rant& Polish

Hey Beauties, If you don't mind i'm quickly going to rant about something because it really has me feeling down in the dumps. So last Friday I sold My Canon Xsi , I had posted an Ad on craigslist, someone contacted me and eventually I decided to meet up with the individual that wanted to buy my Camera, so the exchange happened he paid me the asking price of 400 in large bills, and we went our separate ways. For one I was Naive to hardly check the money once it was placed in my hands because as it turns out last night I had my father inspect the money and find out that they were fake 100 bills. I was In awe that for one I had basically been robbed and for two that I had been so stupid to accept large bills without really checking them. It's just so upsetting that people are okay with being so dishonest and do this to a person who is offering to sell them a good condition product. All in all I feel extremely played and will never ever be selling anything through craigslist or any website like that of the sort, because it's truthfully heartbreaking to be blindly robbed out of something I had to work my ass off in order to pay for.Well lesson learned right? I will never exchange an item for money with a stranger off the internet ever again. :[

Okay, Phew I got that off my chest, It  feels nice to vent. On to the good news news, I have polished nails (claws or w.e you want to call them lol) to show you guys! Not to long ago I was lucky enough to make my first swapping friend all the way from Germany! Her Name Is Chihiro Also Know as Chiro and she runs an awesome blog called My Nail of this week, (seriously she has amazing nail designs) well after some swapping planning we finally got our packages from one another sent on their way, last week I received mine from her, and boy was I like a little kid at Christmas time, she was so sweet and generous and sent me so many goodies that are not available here(ill show you guys my nail mail tomorrow :D) out of those many goodies she sent me the whole entire Limited Edition Snow White Essence Collection! (Thank You So much Chiro!) well out of those beauties I have Two of the polishes to show you today

Essence-Snow White-
Description: A Beautiful Red Jelly That applied like butter and even without a top coat it was extremely shiny! In the first picture I used 2 coats and no Top Coat
Essence-The Huntsman- 
Description-Small and large gold glitters with gold iridescent "flakes" or shards mixed in a clear base., this applied beautifully as well,one coat was good enough to get a lot of glitter on my nail.
2 coats not top coat

2 coats Snow White, 1 coat The Huntsman
