Rose Water Decals

Press Sample
Hi, everyone!
I have been loving water decals lately! They are perfect for fast nail art looks. Today's look features some of my favorite types of decals: flowers!


I started off with two coats of my favorite teal, which is a unnamed Color Club. I applied the decals and added top coat to complete the look!
The water decals are the G103 Rose Water Decals from Born Pretty Store. For $2.86 USD you get one sheet of twenty decals. They are good quality and very easy to use! You will get the perfect placement every time!
You can use the coupon codeYSG10 for 10% off of your order!

Twinsie Thursday: Leoaprd Stripe Skittlette


 Check out this super cute look that Lothwen created for Twinsie Thursday! Don't forget to see my mani by visiting her blog! :)

Hello lovelies!
I'm back for Twinsie Thursday and Samantha picked an awesome inspirational manicure for this month! This is the inspiration, and here is my recreation!


I started off with a white base (Essie "Blanc") on all my nails, except the ring finger. Then I applied 2 coats of Essie "I'm Addicted" on my index finger. On my ring finger are three coats of an unnamed nude from Etos. The black stripes were done using a cheap striper from Primark. I applied the leopard spots with a dotting tool, black polish and OPI "Wooden Shoe Like To Know", from the Holland collection, lol! The studs are from Ebay. All in all it was a relatively fast manicure! I like it :)



I like skittlettes, lol! They make me happy. I should do them more often! Now, I haven't seen Samantha's mani yet, but I already know it's going to be awesome, so visit my blog and check it out!!!

InstaNatural Advanced Repair Scar Gel

Press Sample
Hi everyone!
As a nail blogger, and in general, hands are important! A few months ago I got a super nasty burn on my right hand and, of course, it left a nasty scar behind. I'll spare you photos, as no one wants to see it, not even me (haha).



To find out more about this scar gel, visit InstaNatural.com.

I'll be honest when I say I tried this product once. I applied the gel, which is a brownish color, and let it sink in overnight. When I woke up the next morning, the skin where I had applied the gel was stained dark brown. I washed and washed, and scrubbed and scrubbed, but the stain was still there. It wasn't until I took an exfoliating brush and gave it a good five minute scrub for the stain to lighten.

I've seen a lot of good reviews, so the gel may not get along with my body chemistry. I'm very disappointed, as I was really looking forward to receiving this product.

Stamping with Born Pretty Store

 Press Samples
Hi everyone! 
Today I have two stamping looks for you using BPS stamping plates!

Base Color: Essence L.O.L.   Stamp: BP-L007   Stamping Color: Rimmel London Black Satin

For this look, I chose a fan image from the BP-L007 plate. This plate retails for $5.99 USD and it has twenty-five different images, many of which are full nail images. The plate was etched well and the images came out nice.

Base Color: Essence Break Through   Stamp: m41   Stamping Color: Julep Bunny

For this look I used a plate from a mystery set I received. In the mystery bag I got two plates named m41 and m74. The images in these plates were also well etched. These were not plates I would have picked for myself, but that is what mystery bags are all about! One mystery bag retails for $0.99 USD!

I am no stamping master by any means, but practice makes perfect! 

What are your favorite stamping plates? Let me know below!

Milani Hi-Res

Hey y'all!
I hope everyone is having a great day! It is currently sleeting along with some freezing rain at my house, which is very uncommon in the south! If you're enduring crazy weather right now, like me, stay safe! 
Let's get to the polish!

Milani Hi-Res: two coats; base and top coat.
Milani Hi-Res is a light purple holographic polish! The formula was streaky at first, but a second coat evened it out. I was impressed by the holographic payoff, since drugstore brands have a hard time pulling off holographic polishes.
Overall, I really like this polish! I picked it up a while ago on clearance, along with the other colors in the line, and I'm so glad I did!

Have you found any drugstore gems lately?
