Disney's Olaf

Hey everybody:) Okay I know some of you are over Frozen, and have been for a while! But you can't deny the cuteness of Olaf! He is the perfect snowman and is just right for this time of year. I did this mani free hand and I think it turned out pretty cute :) Here is Olaf!

He isn't perfect but I love him anyway! I used Salon Perfect Baby Blues and Snowed In. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think of this mani:)

Salon Perfect Holiday Combos

Hey everybody:) I found this post that was suppose to go up back in November for Salon Perfects Holiday Combos... Not sure why this didn't go up, but I apologize for not seeing it sooner. These polishes were the ones they were giving-away with Nail it Magazine ... again I apologize for not having this post up in November.
I still wanted y'all to see the polishes that they sent to me for review. Let's start with Sugar Cube and Glam Glitter.  What a combo for getting in the holiday spirit!

He's with Me and Christmas Cookie are so cute together and there are tons of things to create with the glitter:) He's with Me is super cute alone for a perfect red!

Snowed In and Varsity Blues (not apart of the collection), I love this blue and white combo, just so cute and it really reminds me of snow.

My last combo is my favorite, I used Oil Slick with Champagne Toast on top! This is perfect for those holiday parties or even New Years Eve!

I hope you enjoyed seeing these pretties, sorry again about not getting them up in time for the giveaway. You can find Salon Perfect at Walmart. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think of these polishes.

Happy Polishing Everyone!

The Big Chill

Hi all today I have for you The Big Chill from Gelish's winter 2014 collection The Big Chill (that I received for review). Gelish is a great soak off gel polish that I have really gotten to like. These last few months the cold weather hasn't been kind to my nails so wearing a gel polish makes my nails grow a bit more and stand up against the weather.
The Big Chill is a nice light grey with shimmer. After curing the polish I did decide to add a stamp to my nails. I wiped off the nail (before the topcoat and curing process) with a little alcohol and stamped my nail then I top coated my nails and cured them under my led light. I stamped with silver because I thought it would be delicate enough not to over power the beauty that is this lovely grey polish. 

I really liked how this turned out. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think? Have a great day everyone! Gelish can be found at your local Sally's or on Sally's online store. Gelish is on FacebookTwitter, and InstaGram.

China Glaze Twinkles part 2!

 Hi all I'm back with the second part of China Glaze's Twinkle's collection (that I was sent for review). A few of these I had trouble with so I took a different approach then just a full nail swatch when I wore them. Let's get started...

This is Chillin' With My Snow-Mies I did this a little different as I had previously tried to paint it over red and over another color and it would bleed the base color through Chillin' With My Snow-Mies. So I had streaks of red or the other base color in clear it just didn't look nice. So I started over with (as you can see from the second picture) with a base of Re-Fresh Mint (two coats) then I stamped with Konad Green using plate BM205. Using a striping brush and white I made snow on the trees and the ground. I then placed a couple of blobs of Chillin' With My Snow-Mies on my nail art plate and began to dot the glitter on my nails. Now I found Chillin' With My Snow-Mies a little tough to work with when I was trying it out and it was bleeding the base color that I also wasn't getting much of the glitter out of the bottle. So I opted to try it this was as the base was thick. This was the best option for me wearing it. As I get frustrated easily with brushing glitter on and it all ending up on the tip of my nail. I'll also be storing this upside down so next time I'll have better access to the larger glitter.
This is Dancing & Prancing with 3 blotted on coats. Dancing & Prancing is a pretty multicolored multi-sized glitter that really screams party for me.  I tend to blot on thicker glitter because it can be placed on my nail easier that way and doesn't drag the good stuff to the tip of my nail. I like it this way...I do let it dry in between and with that method I'm able to move glitter around and make it work the way I want it to.
This is three coats of De-Light over a white polish. De-Light is a gold glitter in different sizes even bar glitter is in there (you can see the flash of it in the second picture).  I wore this over white and was surprised that the base turned. Not in a bad way surprised but I liked the finished product!
Feeling Twinkly is a micro blue glitter and this is 4 thin coats. When I was finished with the four coats I couldn't see the patches that the pictures show. I had a nice coverage that I was happy with. It really twinkled nicely and as I said before I couldn't see any patches or I might have tried for a fifth coat. It didn't bulge out like some polishes tend to do when you add a few more coats so I think you are safe if you want to wear this one on it's own.  
Meet Me Under the Stars is a black with silver polish that went on in two coats. My niece was drawn to this one as soon as she saw it on my nails.  It's really a nice sparkly polish that has just the right touch of sparkles! 
Pine-ing for Glitter is a lovely multi size green glitter that I wore in a gradient.  When I went to wear this I chose to wear it in a gradient and it turned out beautifully!

 All in all I liked this collection. Very spread out when it comes to colors and glitters. What's your favorite polish of part 2? Favorite polish out of all the colors from the Twinkle Collection? Have a great day everyone. And as always you can find China Glaze here, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.

China Glaze Twinkles Part one!

Hi all today I have for you the Twinkle collection by China Glaze (that was sent to me for review). China Glaze is giving us everything this holiday season from blues to grey. I decided to do this in two posts for ease of posting and not to overwhelm you with so many pictures so stay tuned Wednesday for the second half. All of these are without top coat. Let's get started!

December To Remember is a  light to medium blue that has a beautiful shimmer in it. This went on in two coats. Can you picture it with snowflakes on it? I can!!
Define Good... is a beautiful deep red with pretty shimmer! I used two coats of Define Good... for the pictures below. 
I'd Melt for You is almost one coat metallic silver. I don't need to search for another silver this one is perfect! I did use two coats just to be sure it was as fabulous in pictures as what I was seeing. I try stamping with I'd Melt for You and I think it's a little thick and if you want to go that route I'd let it dry on your stamper for a few seconds then stamp so you don't have smearing.
No Peeking! is a pretty murky purple that I wanted to like but there was something missing in it for me that I really can't put my finger on. This is two coats of No Peeking!
Out like a Light is a great darker grey that went on really nicely in two coats. I like this one because I can wear it with my nails either short or long. It's great!
Tip Your Hat is a great cream red and went on in 2 coats. I'm not a red person...for some reason red is the only color I consider flashy on my nails I'll wear it! don't get me wrong but sometimes I feel like it has flashing lights around my fingers because it's Red.
I always love the formula of China Glaze and these are no exception! The formula with spot on with all of these that I'm showing you today!

What do you think of the Twinkle Collection so far? I'll have the second part up on Wednesday so stay tuned! As always you can find you can find China Glaze here, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Zoya's Wishes!

Hi all today I have for you Zoya's Wishes collection (that was sent for review). I really like all these colors and I did a little something different with this review. Since these colors to me are a matching set (Haven goes with Thea, Prim goes with Nori and Willa goes with Imogen) that's how I wanted to wear them and show them to you. Let's get started...
Haven is a plum metal polish that went on in two coats...If you have been reading this blog for awhile you'll know my favorite color is purple so I have to tell you I LOVE HAVEN! It's gorgeous!
Thea with Haven. This is how I wore Thea and Haven. Two coats of each color. Thea is a deep amethyst pixie dust polish. These two went so well together I put them on again after I wore all of these polishes! 
Prim is a blue metallic that went on like a dream. This is two coats of Prim and I might cheat on Nori and put this on without her. I can see Prim decorated with snowflakes and all decked out for Christmas parties.
Nori with Prim. Nori is a sapphire blue pixie dust. Nori actually reminds me of when I was younger and would squint at the ocean because it would be so bright out and the colors would blur and shimmer together! This is two coats of Nori with two coats of Prim.
Willa is a black cream that went on nicely in two coats. I love Willa on my short nails! 
Imogen with Willa. Imogen is black crystal pixie dust polish that went on in two coats. I tried something a little different here I taped off my nails so I could have Imogen on the tips and one nail. I kind of wish I would have worn Imogen by it self or maybe not as tips it just doesn't work for me. 
Thanks for checking out the blog today! Like always you can find Zoya to purchase here, on Facebook, on Twitter, on Instagram, and on Pinterest.
Have a great day!!!
Oh and make sure you check out Zoya's website they are having great deals today for Cyber Monday  and Mystery Gifts and I'm hearing this deals has been extended till Wednesday (12/03/14...or while supplies last).
