Born Pretty Store review- starry stamping plate QA93

Born Pretty Store review- starry stamping plate QA93

I have another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to show you.  The last one I reviewed here worked great.  But unfortunately, I had some issues with the QA93 plate that I’m showing you today.  I picked out this plate to review because it had a variety of cute stars on it.  I’ve always been a fan of celestial designs, and I had a cool silver, yellow and blue manicure planned out.  But I had some…

Pahlish Sink in the Silence

Pahlish Sink in the Silence

I ordered a couple Pahlish indies a while back and this one is quite fall-ish (or should I say Fahlish LOL) so here it is! It’s called Sink in the Silence.  Shown in my pics is two coats of Sink in the Silence with topcoat.  The formula was really nice and opaque.

Fall themed nails for #TheBeautyBuffs

Fall themed nails for #TheBeautyBuffs

It’s time for our Beauty Buffs feature and this week we are posting about FALL. Say good bye to summery pinks and corals, say hello to deep warm shades. When I think of fall themed beauty and fashion I imagine rich gem tones.  Like sparkling amethyst, sapphire, emerald and gold.  I found a way to incorporate all these luxurious colors into one manicure and it’s so reminiscent of fall for me. …

Stamping Saturday

I opened my eyes wicked early this morning… I won’t even tell you what time because you’d think I was crazy… and I checked my email on my tablet.  I got an email that Cynthia from Of Life And Lacquer posted the China Glaze The Giver collection(which I totally want), and in her post she was like “did you join in on Stamping Saturdays yet?”.  I was like NO.  But thank you for the reminder!  I’ve…

APPLE nails for #NAILLINKUP

So glad to be back into our NAIL Linkupfor September! We took a break for two months for the OMD challenge and stuff.  But we’re back and I’m happy to have direction again with my nail art.  Without prompts in August I felt like I was flying in the wind with no idea what to do.  I don’t know about you, but challenges keep me interested in nail art and really help me come up with fresh new stuff. …
