Firmoo Glasses

Press Sample
Hey y'all! 
Today's post is a little different- I have a review of a pair of Firmoo glasses!
When Firmoo contacted me I was very excited, as I needed a new pair of glasses! I always go back and forth between glasses and contacts, so having a nice, neutral pair of glasses is a must!

I chose the style #F1011! These glasses retail for $53.00 USD, but when I ordered them they were on sale for $33.00 USD. Most of the frame is made of acetate, but the arms are made of metal.

The arms have a funky black, silver, and dark green triangle pattern, with triangle cut outs!

The ordering process was painless. I put in my prescription, made sure all of my information was correct, and put in my order! It took seventeen days from the time I put in my order to the glasses arriving on my doorstep. I did order during the holidays and it was an international order (they ship from China), so I assume that is why it took so long for my order to arrive. I've ordered from Firmoo before and my glasses arrived in nine days.

My glasses arrived in a hard case, along with a soft case, a cleaning cloth, and a copy of my order.

Firmoo is running a "First Pair Free" promotion (you pay shipping). If you chose not to partake in that promotion, you can get free shipping on anY order totaling $39.00USD+ using the code FREESHIP.

Overall, I'm very happy with my order. The glasses are good quality and decently priced. I would definitely order again!

KbShimmer Men Are From Mars-ala

Press Sample
Hey y'all!
Today's post features the Pantone Color of the Year: Marsala! At first, I was very skeptical of this color, but after swatching KbShimmer's Men Are From Mars-ala, I was sold!

Men Are From Mars-ala, a linear holographic polish, is a gorgeous rusty red shade. The formula was smooth, creamy, and fast drying.
I applied two coats of Men Are From Mars-ala over my normal base coat; no top coat. In the picture above, I used artificial daylight and the holographic payoff was great! 
This was my first polish by KbShimmer and I am really impressed!

You can pick up KbShimmer Men Are From Mars-ala on KbShimmer's website for $8.75 USD!

What do you think? Are you sold on the Pantone Color of the Year yet?

New Year's Eve Gradient

Happy New Year's Eve! 
Are y'all ready for 2015? I am! I'm sure it will be full of new nail polish and nail art techniques!

The look I have chosen to wear to bring in the new year is very simple- a gradient!

I used two coats of Zoya Haven, topped with a gradient of Zoya Thea. I then used a top coat to smooth it all out!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year!
See you in 2015! :D

Twinise Thursday: Christmas Stamping

Merry Christmas! I hope y'all enjoy your holiday! Check out Lothwen's cute Christmas mani below! You can see mine on Lothwen's blog! <3

Hello lovelies!
Merry Christmas! It also happens to be Twinsie Thursday, so for me and Samantha it is a double feast. ;) I played Secret Santa and sent Samantha a stamping plate, so that we could coordinate our stamping :D So here is my mani with stamping plate BP-01:

I chose a different image for my mani and created this winter wonderland! 

My base is Essence "Jacob's Protection" from their Twilight line from 2 or three years ago. The white is Essence white stamping polish and the silver glitter is Rimmel "Shooting Star". What do you think? I like how the snow looks like french tips :)

Now go check out Samantha's mani, because it's super Xmas-y and super cute! And I hope you will all enjoy your holidays!
