Let Freedom Ring!

A quick Fourth of July mani for you today. I started off with Salon Perfect's Indigo-go as my base then I used on my pinkie and index fingers LLC-A plate stamped with Konad white. On my ring and middle finger I decided to do a gradient of Salsa Dance, Sugar Cube and Indigo-go all from Salon Perfect!





I hope you have a great day and thank you for stopping by our blog.

Salon Perfect brings the Glitter for the Fourth of July!

Hi all I'm back with Salon Perfect glitters that are perfect for the 4th of July (that were sent to me for review). I have six glitters all ranging in easy to apply and hard to get out of the bottle. First off NONE of these are shown with a top coat. I used Indigo-Go (index), Salsa Dance (middle), Sugar Cube (ring), and Titanium (pinkie) from my previous post on Monday. Let's get started!

Boom Boom Boom is a micro glitter in red, white and blue. The blue glitter isn't navy so it shows up really nicely on Indigo-Go. The other colors like the red and white glitter seem to blend into and they are completely lost on the red and white polish.  

 Let Freedom Bling is a strips of glitter (or hairy glitter) in silver, white, red and blue. I think this is best showed over white. It's not bad for a hairy glitter to me. Not bad application I blotted it on when I applied it and moved it around a bit.


Liberty Bubbles are circle glitter in different sizes and a nice lighter blue that pops with the white and red. I did have trouble getting this one out of the bottle so I tried sponging it on with little to no change in application. I think when I use this again I'll 1. store it upside down and 2. try to fish out pieces of glitter.

 Pa-Tri-Otic is a triangle glitter in red, white and light blue. I really don't care for this except on the index finger where Indigo-go make all the colors just stand out. Application wasn't bad I blotted what I fished out trying not to get to much of the clear coat on the brush so I didn't have a super long drying time.

Rockets Red Glare is by far my favorite of red and blue glitter. Looking best on Sugar Cube to me. It applied so easily. I just arranged a few of the glitters around on my cuticle area and tip of my nail.

Speck-Tacular is a small red, white and light blue glitter. I enjoyed this one over Indigo-go the most! Easy application and again I just moved a few of the glitters around.

Some hit's some misses. All in all you have a great variety to pick from for your Fourth of July mani!

Celebrate the 4th with Salon Perfect!

Hi all today I have for you four polishes that Salon Perfect sent me for review. These are perfect for the Fourth of July! I'll have the top coats up later this week so keep an eye out for those. So for now let's get started on these! I'm showing all of these with Crystal Clear top coat on. Crystal Clear dries in three to five minutes and is quickly becoming one of my favorite top coats!

Indigo-go is a beautiful Navy Blue. This is two coats of Indigo-go. I really like Indigo-go, a perfect blue for the fourth of July. 

Salsa Dance is a tomato red. This is two coats of Salsa Dance. I liked Salsa Dance until I had to take it off I had a bit of staining around my cuticle area and my finger. A beautiful color though!

Sugar Cube is a white. Sugar Cube went on in two coats. Sugar Cube is a blanket of snow to me. A blank canvas ready to be painted on.

Titanium is a frosty silver. This is three coats of Titanium. I loved the look of Titanium in the bottle and wanted to love it. I like silver...just not a frosty silver that takes three coats. This was a bit watery and just didn't make me happy when I applied it.


You can find these colors at your local Walmart right now. You can find Salon Perfect's web page here, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram.
These are perfect colors to start your Fourth of July mani's with! I hope you enjoyed today's post. Have a great day.

Sharpies on my nails.

Hi all today I tried out something new to me. I decided to try out coloring on my nails with a Sharpie then going over that lightly with a bit of alcohol. I wasn't completely sold on how it looked so I thought stamping over it would help a bit. Well the stamp is flowers and that's what I tried to make with the sharpie's so I call this an experiment. I might try it again. For now here is an experiment in trying something out side the box for me. 



I do need to say that you have to be very careful with the amount of alcohol you put on your brush because it runs and stains...not a pretty sight and not fun or easy to clean up.

Thanks for checking out our blog. Have a wonderful day!

Tutorial Tuesday... Sunset with Palm Trees

Hey everybody:) Sorry I haven't been blogging lately, I guess I haven't had anything I wanted to write about; until now!
Pat made the suggestion that I do a tutorial Tuesday (again)... Here is the thing, Pat and I do an Instagram post on Saturday's called Sister Saturday and a lot of those post I've been doing a quick video how to post to go along with. She suggested that maybe doing a Tutorial Tuesday instead of posting a quick video. Well DUH!!! So here I am again blogging and bringing y'all Tutorial Tuesday!!!

Today's tutorial is a ombre with palm trees! For this ombre I used Maybelline Sunset Prisms and Milani Pink Pop, topped with China Glaze Angel Wings. I used Orly Liquid Vinyl for the palm trees. Here is a video tutorial, enjoy :)

P.S. If you haven't tried Simply Peel Latex Barrier by Bliss Kiss... You need to go get you some!!! Best thing for the messy artist in you!


Happy Polishing Everyone!
Love,
~Anne~

Obsessed with this plate!

Hi all. Lately I have been obsessed with this Born Pretty Plate! I purchased it off of Amazon during one of their sales ($0.01 for the plate $3.00 shipping). This is plate BP 52. I love all of the intricate lines and swirls that I just keep coming back to it. So my base color is Butter London's Dodgy Barnett that Anne found at TJMaxx or Marshall's. I then stamped it using Konad Blue! Check it out.



Thanks for taking the time to check our blog out. Have a great day!

Hello Pretty Collection from Gelish!

Hi everyone! today I have for you Gelish's newest collection Hello Pretty (that was sent to me for review). I was so very happy to try these because I love gel polishes for vacations and long weeks! I used three coats of gel polish with drying time about 45 seconds per coat of polish. Let's get started!

Anime-zing Color! is a dark purple neon creme...almost indigo to me because there is so much blue in this polish. You can see my camera freaked out a bit with the brightness and color but I think the second picture really captures the polish well.

Do You Harajuku? is a nice mint creme that has a pretty but subtle shimmer. I wasn't expecting the shimmer but it's really nice. This is a very subtle summer color to me almost a spring color.

Look at you, Pink-achu! is a bright bubble gum pink creme. Oh yes! a bright pink that is great for my skin tone that I can wear up to two weeks!


Manga-round with me is a coral neon cream. I so fell in love with this color!!! Manga-round with me is such a pop of color that's perfect for summer!

Pop-arrazi Pose is a hot pink creme. Yes how can you go wrong with a hot pink? The answer is YOU CAN'T! Look how pretty Pop-arrazi Pose is!


Tokyo a GoGo is a neon light purple creme. Y'all know me and purple and this one is amazing (so is Anime-zing Color!)!

I think my next step when I wear these is a bit of nail art or stamping! 
Gelish (to me) is very easy to use and the remover is very nice to my hands and nails. I really love nail polish and sometimes change my polish 3-4 times a week. I'm happy that I can get up to two weeks wear with Gelish so if I'm away, sick, or feeling lazy I can put on a Gelish polish and not have to touch it up or worry about it. 
I'm really in love with this collection! I love neons and  these are at the top of my list for this summer's gel polishes!

You can find Gelish here, facebook and on  instagram.
