NUP Pink Flamingo

As promised here is Nina Ultra Pro nail polish in Pink Flamingo.
I just could not wait to try this one!

In my neverending search for the perfect pink, I knew I had to get it from the moment I lay my eyes on it!
It is what I would define as Barbie pink. But since everyone seems to be using that adj. to describe every single variation of pink there is....I'm not sure...but at least for me it is!

Like I said in my previous post I've never really given NUP the light of day, I guess I was stuck in a rut with my OPI, Orly and China Glaze obsession.
I have to say I really like the formulation because it is easily applied. I only used 2 coats for this and it was not streaky whatsoever and that's always a good sign.

It's very creamy and has a nice shine to it. As for the wear, we'll just have to wait and see, but I used my trusty Seche Vite topcoat so I have high hopes for it! Overall I see myself buying some more of NUP before the $1.99 sale is over!!! :)


Nail polish haul

Here are some of the nail polishes I got today, I just wanted to give you a sneak peek since I will def. be doing individual posts on these babies. So here is what I got:

♥ OPI Baby Is "Coal" Outside (beautiful shimmery black)
♥ China Glaze Medallion (omg a-mazing glittery goodness!)
♥ Nina Ultra Pro in Purple-Xing (fun purple with multicolor shimmer and glitter)
♥ NUP in The Blue (navy blue)
♥ NUP in Pink Flamingo (creamy hot pink)

I got these at Sally's except for the OPI one. It's getting kind of annoying trying to find OPI nail polishes since Sally's is no longer carrying them. I had to get mine at Trade Secret and they suck with new collections. As for the Nina Ultra Pro polishes, well they were on sale (for only $1.99) and I've never tried them before so I picked them up to see if I like them! Let me know if you have tried them! :)

Scarlett Johansson Glamour inspired nails

So the beautiful Scarlett was in this month's cover of Glamour mag. and I was totally loving her mani in some of the pics, so I decided to try it out myself!

As you can tell it is kind of difficult to really appreciate the design she has on her nails, but they look really cool anyway.

So here is my take, tada! lol

It is really abstract and def. not perfect, but I like it!

The products I used were:
OPI Bride's bouquet (white)
Kiss Brush on nail art (black)
Seche Vite base and top coat

Please note: Even though the pictures might deceive you, NO I'm not a pro. *wink,wink* ;P
This is just for fun, and it was ispired by her nails so is not meant to look exactly like hers.

Let me know what you guys think!

Pink Zebra Nails

Ok, so I was feeling a little inspired the other day and decided to try out some stupidly easy nail art.
I never really do anything more to my nails than just plain old polish, I leave the artsy masterpieces to the pros.
But after watching some tutorials on YT, I decided to try this one myself.

I found that it was super easy, but it does take some time (which is a downside because I'm impatient!).
I loved it so much that I ended up doing my toes as well, and those looked AWESOME!, sadly I won't show my huge feet in here... dignity issues LOL

I used Orly Basketcase, to give it a pink punky edge which I loved. And for the lines I just used Kiss Brush on nail art paint. Then I finished it up with Seche Vite topcoat. I guess I had to wait a little longer for the stripes to dry, because I ended up smudging it a little..still looked cute though!

Btw it lasted a good 6 days on my nails, that's why I'm really loving Seche Vite base and topcoat! That stuff is awesome, it doesn't compare at all to Sally's megashine!

Hope you like, let me know what you think.

Over the Rainbow

Hey guys!

I just wanted to quickly share this pic with you.
It's not makeup or anything but def. beauty related :)

Can you spot the rainbow?

This was taken right after it rained ... a lot! I could only capture one side since it was huge, but it's still beautiful.
I love rainbows, I think there's something very fairy-tale-like about them haha.
