Bundle Monster Plate BM-XL358: Gem Nails


Hi everyone and happy Saturday!  In my quest to use my Bundle Monster stamping plates (and actually get good at it) I decided to throw in an extra special post!  Today's look uses Bundle Monster's BM-XL358 plate, which looks like this:


Aside from the plate I needed several polishes -including a stamping polish.  The polishes I chose were Bundle Monster Color's "Straight Up Black", China Glaze's "Dune Our Thing" and Wet N' Wild's "Sparked."

The first thing I did was apply two coats of China Glaze's "Dune Our Thing" so my nails looked like this:


Next I applied a glittery coat of Wet N' Wild's "Sparked" on top of China Glaze's "Dune Our Thing."  My nails then looked like this:


Lastly I used Bundle Monster Color's "Poli-Peel" to make clean-up super easy.  Then I applied the design using Bundle Monster Color's "Straight Up Black."  This created a fun shimmery look that I got a lot of compliments on.

If you want to know more about China Glaze's "Dune Our Thing" or Wet N' Wild's "Sparked" check out my posts from earlier this year!

Overall I am very happy with how this nail art look turned out.  It was fun and happy and a great Summertime look!

OPI "Color So Hot It Berns"


Hello guys!  Today's nail polish is OPI's "Color So Hot It Berns."  This nail polish came as part of a limited edition Black Friday set sold at ULTA, called The Reds Have It Trio.  The set looks like this:


"Color So Hot It Berns" is a bright candy apple red.  Formula wise this nail polish was fantastic and extremely easy to apply.  After only one coat, "Color So Hot It Berns" was completely opaque and streak free.  However I applied two coats for the picture above, as always.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear this polish for seven full days before I noticed any chips.

Overall I am really happy with OPI's "Color So Hot It Berns."  Everything from the color to the formula to the wear time was perfect and I couldn't ask for anything better out of a nail polish.  I will definitely wear this nail polish again and again!

ULTA "Fine Pruned"


Hello all and happy almost first day of Summer!  Today's nail polish is ULTA's "Fine Pruned."  This is an inexpensive brand of nail polish sold by ULTA Beauty stores.

"Fine Pruned" is a purplish brown polish.  The formula of "Fine Pruned" was watery but as long as I wiped the excess polish off the brush I didn't find it to difficult to apply.  After two coats this nail polish was completely opaque  and had no streak marks.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear "Fine Pruned" for four days before there were a couple of chips.

Overall ULTA's "Fine Pruned" is a good polish with its only fault being the watery formula.  However that being said its application is not the worst and I am willing to wear "Fine Pruned" again.

Sally Hansen Sugar Shimmer "Work Of Tart"


Hello all and happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!  Today's nail polish is Sally Hansen Sugar Shimmer's "Work Of Tart."  This polish s a textured polish similar feeling to sand.

"Work Of Tart" is a lovely dusty turquoise with silver and iridescent shimmer.  Formula wise this nail polish was good and very easy to apply.  After two coats of polish, "Work Of Tart" was not entirely opaque but it was only noticeable if you looked very closely. In terms of chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for three days before there were some noticeable chips.  Since "Work Of Tart" is a textured polish is is meant to be worn without a top coat (like the picture above.)  However I also wanted to see how this polish looked with a shiny finish.  It turned out like this:


Overall I am pleased with Sally Hansen Sugar Shimmer's "Work Of Tart."  The color is fun and the formula was great.  I do with this polish had been opaque but I believe a third coat would easily solve that problem.  I will wear this nail polish again soon!

Nails INC "Brighton"


Hi guys and happy, happy Friday!  Today's nail polish is Nails INC's "Brighton" which is a special effects Feather polish.  I wanted this nail polish for so long and it took me a long time to track a bottle down, and I am so glad I did!

"Brighton" is a bar glitter in lime green and turquoise in a clear base.  Formula wise, "Brighton" was very thick but that helped the glitter stick to my nails.  In order to get "Brighton" to be opaque I thought I would have to use the sponge technique but surprisingly it applied in good thick coats.  As for chipping I was only able to wear this polish for about two days because the bar glitter kept grabbing on everything.  But I decided to try "Brighton" out as a top coat on another polish.


I decided to try out "Brighton" with Sephora by OPI's "Read My Palm."  This combination turned out nicely and is perfect for Summertime!

If you want to know more about Sephora by OPI's "Read My Palm" check out my post from earlier this week!

Overall I am very pleased with Nails INC's "Brighton."  This polish is a lot of fun and very unique looking.  I will wear this nail polish again but unfortunately only on weekends of vacations because my work place requires more professional nails.

Sephora by OPI "Read My Palm"


Hello everyone!  We are halfway to the weekend again!  (Hooray!)  Today's nail polish is Sephora by OPI's "Read My Palm."  Sephora by OPI is a now retired brand that OPI used to produce for Sephora stores.

"Read My Palm" is a gorgeous aquamarine colored polish - which my all time favorite color!  Formula wise this nail polish was great and went on easily.  After two coats, "Read My Palm" was entirely opaque and had no streak marks.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for six days before there were some small tip chips.

Overall I am really happy with Sephora by OPI's "Read My Palm."  Everything about this polish is great but its color is my all time favorite and I want to wear it all the time!

June Nail Art: Half Moon Mani


Hello everyone!  I can't believe we are halfway through June!  2017 is really flying by and before we know it Christmas will be here again.  Today's nail polish is actually some nail art!  I decided to try out the Half Moon Mani that was so popular a while back.  (And let'snot laugh too hard at my terrible fail!)

To create this simple look I used tow nail polishes: Sinful Colors "YOLO Yellow" and Julep's "Nellie."  They look like this:

Julep's "Nellie" and Sinful Colors "YOLO Yellow"

I started out by painting my nails with Sinful Colors "YOLO Yellow."  Once my nails were dry I place the Avery Reinforcement Labels on my nails, which looked like this:


I them proceeded to paint the area beneath the Reinforcement Label with Julep's "Nellie" to create the final look.  I also applied a coat of Orly "Sec N' Dry" to seal in the look.

Overall all this was a very cute look and it was surprisingly easy to do!  I would definitely be willing to wear this nail art again and try it wit several different color combinations!  And maybe next time it'll turn out better.

OPI "I'm Sooo Swamped!"


Hello all!  The weekend has finally arrived!  Today's nail polish is OPI's "I'm Sooo Swamped!"  This nail polish came as part of a four-piece mini set called New Orleans Collection.  The set looks like this:


"I'm Sooo Swamped!" is a unique green color that looks like the algae found on the top of swamp water.  Formula wise this nail polish was nice and it applied easily on to my nails.  After two coats, "I'm Sooo Swamped!" was completely opaque and had no visible streak marks.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear this polish for five full days before I noticed a small tip chip here or there.

Overall I am very happy with OPI's "I'm Sooo Swamped!"  Everything about this gorgeous and unique polish is fantastic and I will definitely be wearing this nail polish a lot more often.

Wet N' Wild "Sparked"


Hi all and happy Thursday!  Who else is ready for the weekend?  To help perk me up to make it to the weekend I selected a fun and glittery polish!  Today's nail polish is Wet N' Wild's "Sparked."

"Sparked" is a bright pink chunky glitter polish in a clear base.  Formula wise this nail polish was fantastic and very easy to apply, which is almost unheard of for a glitter polish!  After two coats, "Sparked" was nowhere near opaque but this polish would be a great candidate for the sponge technique.  Since glitter polishes are often used as a top coat I decided to test it out over an opaque polish.  Here's how it turned out:


The first polish I decided to try "Sparked" with was OPI's "Lincoln Park After Dark."  This combination turned out fun and extra sparkly and was by far my favorite combination!


The second polish I tested out with "Sparked" was China Glaze's "Dune Our Thing."  This combination was very pink and would be perfect for a faerie princess.

Overall I really like Wet N' Wild's "Sparked."  Everything about this nail polish is great and I will be wearing it again and again until the bottle is empty!

China Glaze "Dune Our Thing"


Hi all and happy Tuesday!  It's been a crazy week at work (25 hours worked in less than 2 day!)  But now the rest of the week is less stressed out.  So to celebrate a calming rest of the week, today's nail polish is China Glaze's "Dune Our Thing."

"Dune Our Thing" is a pretty deep fuchsia colored polish.  The formula of this nail polish was great and it applied very well.  After only one coat, "Dune Our Thing" was completely opaque and streak free.  However as always I applied two coats for the photo above.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this polish for six days before there were some noticeable tip chips.

Overall I really like China Glaze's "Dune Our Thing."  Everything about this nail polish is perfect!  I plan on wearing this polish again - I think it'll be perfect for Autumn!

Hard Candy "Soda Pop"


Hi all and happy Sunday!  As 4th of July approaches in the United States, I decided to take the time to test out a red, white and blue nail polish.  Today's nail polish is Hard Candy's "Soda Pop"

"Soda Pop" is a very fun red, white and blue glitter polish in a clear base.  Formula wise this nail polish was decent but I had to work at spreading the glitter out evenly.  As for chipping, this polish wasn't meant to be worn alone so it is hard to say.  Since "Soda Pop" was meant to be worn as a top coat I decided to test it out over some other polishes.  Here's how it turned out:


The first polish I decided to test out with "Soda Pop" was Nicole by OPI's "It's Not Me, It's Blue."  This combination was a bit disappointing and is one I probably wouldn't wear again.


The second polish I decided to test out with "Soda Pop" was Wet N' Wild's "Red Red."  This combination was perfect for the 4th of July and looked great!

If you want to know more about Nicole by OPI's "It's Not Me, It's Blue" or Wet N' Wild's "Red Red" check out my posts from earlier this year!

Overall I have mixed feelings about Hard Candy's "Soda Pop."  The polish is very pretty and looked nice on my nails but it was frustrating trying to spread the glitter out.  However I would be willing to try this polish out using the glitter sponge trick to see how it turned out on my nails!

Nail Matic "Kimi"


Hi everyone and happy June!  Today's nail polish is Nail Matic's "Kimi" which is a French brand of nail polish that I purchased in Paris in the Summer of 2015.  (I can't believe it has been two years since the last time I went to Europe!)

"Kimi" is a stunningly gorgeous aquamarine colored polish, which also happens to be my favorite color of all time!  Formula wise "Kimi" was amazing and its application was flawless.  After two coats, this polish was completely opaque and had no visible streak marks.  As for chipping, I was able to wear "Kimi" for four days before there were a few minor tip chips.

Overall I am really pleased by Nail Matic's "Kimi."  Everything from its fantastic color to its easy application makes this nail polish a winner!  I will be wearing this polish a lot more often.

Also here's a fun #tbt (even though it is Friday!) from my trip to Paris:

OPI "Purple Palazzo Pants"


Hi all!  I can't believe that May is over today!  I know I say this just about every month, but this year literally seems to be flying by!  So without further ado the final nail polish of May, is OPI's "Purple Palazzo Pants" from their Fall 2015 Venice Collection.

"Purple Palazzo Pants" is a lovely light pastel lavender colored polish.  Formula wise this nail polish was thick and took quite a bit of patience to apply.  However, after two coats, "Purple Palazzo Pants" was completely opaque and streak free.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear this polish for a full week before my nails grew out too much and the polish needed to be changed!

Overall I am super happy with OPI's "Purple Palazzo Pants."  While the formula was a little tricky everything else was flawless and I can't wait to wear this polish again very soon!

China Glaze "Meet Me In The Mirage"


Hi all!  Sorry for the delay in posting, but the wi-fi has been out all day!  Today's nail polish is China Glaze's "Meet Me In The Mirage" which came as part of a limited edition Build Your Own Set.  This past December ULTA had around 10-12 miniature bottles that you could turn into little customized sets.


"Meet Me In The Mirage" is a gorgeous rose gold shimmer.  Formula wise this polish was fantastic and very easy to apply.  After tow coats, "Meet Me In The Mirage" was entirely opaque and only had one or two visible streak marks - and streak marks are common with shimmery polishes.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for five full days before I noticed any chips marks.

Overall I am very pleased with China Glaze's "Meet Me In The Mirage."  Everything about this nail polish is perfect and it looked fantastic on my nails!  I cannot wait to wear this nail polish again and again!

Bundle Monster Plate BM-XL357: Boho Nails


Hello everyone!  On today's extra special post I am testing out Bundle Monster's Stamping Plate BM-XL357.  The plate has some fun floral/Boho looking designs that I had been itching to try out.  here's how the plate looks:


As you can see all the Boho patterns can create endlessly unique looks.  So to create this look I pulled out my Bundle Monster Color "Straight Up Black" to stamp with and Nail Matic's "Kimi" as the gorgeous base.  In the bottles the polish looks like this:

Nail Matic's "Kimi" and Bundle Monster Color's "Straight Up Black."

After selecting the polish I painted two coats of Nail Matic "Kimi" on to my nails and it looked like this:


The next step was to place Bundle Monster Color's "Poli-Peel" to protect my skin and make the clean up better.  The "Poli-Peel" looks like this:


From there I used my Bundle Monster stamper to place the look on my nails.  Then it is time to clean up by peeling off the "Poli-Peel" and placing a top coat on the finished look.

Overall I really love how this look turned out.  It is so pretty and the perfect look for Summer! However that being said I still have a lot of work to do to perfect my stamping skills.  (And any suggestions for becoming better are welcome!)

"Delhi Dance" is a beautiful pastel pink polish that is perfect for Springtime!  formula wise this nail polish was great and very easy to apply.  After two coats, "Delhi Dance" was entirely opaque and had no visible streak marks.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this polish for five days before there were some small chips.

Overall I am very impressed with Essie's "Delhi Dance."  Everything about this nail polish is perfect and I cannot wait to wear it again soon!

Pop-arazzi "Shell Me More"


Hi everyone!  I'm so excited that tomorrow is Friday!  It's always nice to get to get to the weekend. Today's nail polish is Pop-arazzi's "Shell Me More."

"Shell Me More" is a lovely sky blue colored polish.  Formula wise this polish was good and easy to apply.  Though I do have one small complaint and that is that this polish has a terrible smell - though I can't put my finger on what it smells like.  After two coats, "Shell Me More" was almost completely opaque but it did have several visible streak marks on each nail.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for three or four days before it began to chip off.

Overall I have mixed feelings about Pop-arazzi's "Shell Me More."  I love the color of this polish but everything else was only so-so.  However that being said I will probably give this nail polish anther go because it wasn't terrible.

butterLONDON "Front Row"


Hi all and happy Tuesday!  It's miserably rainy out today so I went with a nice calming color to match the weather.  Today's nail polish is butterLONDON's "Front Row."  This polish is part of a limited edition collection called Arm Candy.  The set looks like this:


"Front Row" is a deep burgundy colored polish.  Formula wise this polish was okay, but very streaky.  After two coats, "Front Row" was entirely opaque but it did not look very good on my nails.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for two days before it began to chip.

Overall I have mixed feelings about butterLONDON's "Front Row."  The color looks really nice in the bottle but the looks stopped there and on top of that it chipped very quickly.  I would give this polish another try but not before I try other polishes in my collection.

Sephora by OPI "A True Romantic"


Hi all and happy Sunday!  Today's nail polish is Sephora by OPI's "A True Romantic."  Sephora by OPI, or SOPI, is a retired brand of nail polish that used to be sold at Sephora stores.  "A True Romantic" is a miniature bottle that came as part of a set that was sold on an American TV channel called QVC.  The set looks like this:


"A True Romantic" is a pale baby pink polish that almost matches my skin.  Formula wise this nail polish was very nice and easy to apply.  However the tiny bottle often times tried to slip out of my hands.  (A user error on my part haha.)  After two coats, "A True Romantic" was not even close to opaque and you could still see my nail bed.  That being said there were no streak marks.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this polish for three days before it began to chip.

Overall I have mixed feelings about Sephora by OPI's "A True Romantic."  I like the polish's color and its application was good but the fact that it wasn't opaque annoys me.  Chances are though, I will wear this polish again but as a base for glitter or nail art.

Sinful Colors "Sail La Vie"


Hi all and happy happy Fri-YAY!  Today's nail polish is Sinful Colors "Sail La Vie" which is a wonderful play on words from the French saying c'est la vie - meaning such is life.

"Sail La Vie" is a lovely sky blue nail polish,  Formula wise "Sail La Vie" was slightly watery but as long as I wiped the excess polish from the brush back into the bottle it was easy enough to apply. After two coats, the polish was completely opaque but there were a couple of visible streak marks.  I always use two coats of polish on my nails, however I think a third coat of "Sail La Vie" would have hidden the streak marks nicely.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear "Sail La Vie" for four days before there were a few tiny tip chips.

Overall I like Sinful Colors "Sail La Vie."  I absolutely adore the gorgeous color and everything was decent.  I will definitely wear this nail polish again and again!

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "Ivy League"


Hello everyone!  We're halfway through the week and it is gorgeous outside!  Summer seems to finally be in full swing.  Today's nail polish is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear's "Ivy League."

"Ivy League" is a light olive green nail polish with a lot of shimmer.  Formula wise this polish was great and it gave me no difficulty.  After two coats, "Ivy League" was partially opaque and had several visible patches and streak marks.  In term of chipping, I was able to wear "Ivy League" for two days before it chipped and looked sad.

Overall I have mixed feelings about Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear's "Ivy League."  I like the color and the Sally Hansen brand is very affordable but the streak marks, patches and how quickly the polish chipped were disappointing.  However I've had this polish in  my collection for several years and I continue to wear it anyways.

China Glaze "About Layin' Out"


Hi guys!  We survived Monday and here in North Carolina is is gorgeous and sunny!  So to celebrate the sunshine, today's nail polish is China Glaze's "About Layin' Out."

"About Layin' Out" is a gorgeous hot pink neon nail polish.  The formula of this polish was unique as it was watery but wet on in a lumpy thick coat.  After two coats, "About Layin' Out" was almost opaque except at the tips of my nails.  However there were no streak marks, which was nice.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for three days before it began to chip off in chunks.

Overall I have mixed feelings about China Glaze's "About Layin' Out."  The color is fantastic and looked nice on my nails, but it was disappointing that the polish chipped so quickly.  That being said I will probably wear this polish again because it is bright and happy.

Nicole by OPI "Three Way Mirror"


Hi everyone and happy Saturday!  Today's nail polish is Nicole by OPI's "Three Way Mirror" from the miss-labeled mini set I found at TJ Maxx.  This is actually a Sephora by OPI nail polish.  The set looks like this:


"Three Way Mirror" is a dusty pink nail polish.  Formula wise "Three Way Mirror" was perfect and very easy to apply.  After two coats the nail polish was opaque and has no visible streak marks.  As for chipping, I was able to wear "Three Wear Mirror" for six full days before it began to chip off.

Overall I am very impressed by Nicole by OPI's "Three Way Mirror."  From its color to its wearability this polish could not get any better.  I will definitely wear this nail polish again and again!

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure "Coat Of Arms"


Hi all! I hope everyone is having a nice week so far and looking forward to the weekend!  Today's nail polish is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure's "Coat Of Arms."

"Coat Of Arms" is a gorgeous gold nail polish with a lot of shimmer.  Formula wise this polish was great and went on to my nails easily.  After two coats "Coat Of Arms" was completely opaque but did have a few streak marks.  The streak marks were caused because the polish is metallic, so the shimmer hides the streak marks well.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for five days before there were noticeable chips.

Overall I am very happy with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure's "Coat Of Arms."  This polish is perfect and I cannot wait to wear it again very soon!

If you want to see more "Coat Of Arms" check out my post from earlier this year where I used this polish in some nail art.

May Nail Art: Spring Flowers


Hi all!  Now that May is in full swing here, Summer is just around the corner and I can hardly wait! (Even though we currently have the heat running!)  Today I decided to show off some Summertime nail art!

For today's nail art I did free-hand daisies!  I think these nails turned out nicely, but my free-hand skills definitely aren't that great.  (Which is comical since I have degrees in design and art.)  To create this look I used three nail polishes.  The polishes are:

OPI "Suzi Loves Cowboys", Sinful Colors "YOLO Yellow" and Bundle Monster Color "Bam! White."

Overall I am pleased with my little yellow daisies.  This was a nice simple look that was very easy to to do and I think they are perfect for Summer!

Essence "The Green And The Grunge"


Hi all and happy Tuesday!  Who else is already counting down to the weekend again?  Today's nail polish is Essence's "The Green And The Grunge."

"The Green And The Grunge" is an average looking green polish that a lighter forest green color. Formula wise this nail polish was very good and applied well, though it smells terrible and always makes me cough.  After one coat, "The Green And The Grunge" was entirely opaque and streak free. However I applied a second coat for the picture.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear this polish for three days before it began there were some small chip marks.

Overall Essence's "The Green And The Grunge" is a good nail polish and it looked nice on my nails. The only downside of this polish is its smell, which irritates my throat.  Because of that I probably won't wear this nail polish very often.
