Sally Hansen Lava

I have been SO BUSY lately!! Sorry for not posting so much.

My mani for Saturday was Sally Hansen Lustre Shine in Lava. I managed to snag this one off of a display at my local Meijer. I had no time to clean up my mani or anything :/ I had to run off to take photos with my family, hang out at Oktoberfest (I know, it is September), and it was my brother's birthday. 

This is 100000x times better than Bad Fairy or Poison Apple (and sorry for the tip wear! I didn't wash between taking off my polish and putting base coat on >< )

I put it on over OPI Royal Rajah Ruby. OPI shimmery vamps always fall flat on me so I just use them for undies. 

This is one of my favorite polishes ever. I am going back for a back up (or two!)

It is purple-y when angled down


That is all.

Golden Duochromey Goodness

2 posts back to back! It is like I am a blogger again or something. Hehe!

China Glaze Rare and Radiant! When I was wearing this, I went to Meijer and found 2 dupes to this by Maybelline and Sally Hansen...But at least I only paid 3 bucks for this at CosmoProf :D That is still cheaper than both of those brands AND I have 15mL of this stuff. w00t

This is a franken mix I made as I was inspired by adding aqua shred to gunmetal glitters...the golden green was inspired by the main color of this polish and the aqua by the duochrome flash. It also has garnet hexes, purple squares, and copper bar glitter. You can get the glitter mix on the GLITTER MIXES tab at the top of the page! It is called BEST DRESSED.

Editorial, darling.

I made it work!

This is after a day of wear so there is a little tip rub off going on. Still a sweet color. I think it looks good with my skin tone but is a little too flashy for work-wear.

Stamping Sunday: Leaves is not Sunday...But here is my mani for last week's Stamping Sunday theme of Leaves!

Revlon Fig Jam base! The smell is kinda...well, not strong and unoffensive. I like this polish, very pretty.

Well, I kinda went nuts with the leaves here. >_>

This is my right hand. Less cluttered! Wish I had an oak leaf stamp...

Up at the top, under the tabs...there is the Glitter Mix page!

You just mix them up in to a store-bought glitter or a bottle of glamour base! Super simple!

Further instructions are included with each purchase :)

This is what I have been up to while I was gone, haha!

Stamping Sundays: Toxic or Poisonous

So I added *venomous* things, oh well! This was my vision for this "Toxic or Poisonous" mani and I was going to stick with it!!

Base: Essie Mojito Madness
Red: BM 12, MyOnline Shop Red stamping polish
Black: H19 on thumb and MASH plates on all other nails, Konad Black stamping polish

A snake a snake, ohhhhhh it's a snake

Some crazy coloring in this photo!



I've wanted to use these animal stamps for awhile now. I also like the red tribal flamey thing. I think it is simple and sleek, for a stamped animal mani :P I was going to do mushrooms but I only have one mushroom stamp and I kinda hate every nail being the same unless it is over a duochrome or something!
