Sinful Colors All the Rage & You Polish Neon Sprinkles or Something

Hello Lacquer Lovers!
Today I have two polishes that were meant for each other. I mean, just look at this....

Sinful Colors All the Rage is a part of the Sinful Shine line, which I absolutely love! I used two coats for complete opacity. 

I topped it off with one coat of You Polish Neon Sprinkles or Something. It has yellow hex, lime square, blue hex, and giant pink hex glitters. I did have to fish out the giant pink hex, but that is to be expected of a glitter in a mini bottle. This polish has been sitting in my untrieds for the longest time, but it may be one of my new favorites. I actually won it in a giveaway from Lace and Lacquers a year ago!

This mani also let me debut my new nubbins, which may stay for a while. They don't chip as much when they are short and this is very important because I'll be going back to school in less than ten days!

Twin Nails: Birds & Feathers

Hello Lacquer Lovers!
Today I have a twin post with Morven from Pretty Quirky!
We decided to go with a feather with birds ''flying out'' of it over a blue gradient!

For my gradient, I used Wet n Wild Teal Slowly and See, along with Zoya Ling. For the design I used L.A. Colors Art Deco Striper in Black. 

I really like the way this looks! I may try it again over a multicolor gradient for a sunset effect.

Here are Morven's nails. How cute are they!?

Until next time! <3

Mustache Nail Stickers

* The following products were sent to me for my honest review. For more information, please visit my disclosure policy.*

Hello Lacquer Lovers! 
Today I'm reviewing the 3D Nail Seal Beard Series Beard Pattern Nail Seal-440 [3D-440] from KKCenterHK. They retail for $1.00USD.
I was so excited when this showed up at my door, but once I put them on, I was very disappointed.

Here you can see four of seven nail designs from the package over Sinful Colors Thimbleberry. 

These designs are easy to apply and are the perfect size were the perfect size for my nails, but the quality was lacking. As soon as I top coated this manicure for photos,
the designs started to shrink up, bubble, and it almost seemed like they were melting. Have you ever put nail polish on styrofoam? It melts right through it.  That is exactly what the reaction reminded me of. 

Do you have any tips for nail stickers? Let me know in the comments!
