LCN Phantasia Review

I recently did a guest post review for my friend Lindsay over at Nail That Accent! If you haven’t seen it, you should check it out here: LCN Phantasia Review

In this post I reviewed the 4 piece Phantasia summer collection from LCN. This is my first time wearing LCN nail polish. I did have a few issues with them. So check out my gripes, my swatches, and my mermaid nail art using all 4 colors!

ILNP Indie Go Swatch

ILNP Indie Go Swatch

I Love Nail Polish had a sale last month and I picked up a few soon-to-be discontinued holos on clearance. Here’s a swatch of two coats of Indie Go. It’s a beautiful merging of blue and purple and I can definitely see me wanting to wear this one a lot. No staining either. What’s not to love about this indie?

Floral French Water Decals – Born Pretty Store Review

I am a fan of water decals.  So when Born pretty Store gave me the opportunity to review their products I chose these cute french manicure decals called “French Edge Nail Art Water Decals Transfer Stickers Colorful Flower Sticker“. They sell them in four different colors, and each pack is only $1.99.  I chose to review the blue ones.  I have never tried waterslide frenchies before!  I opened the…

Nailtiques Review - with before and after pics

Nailtiques Review – with before and after pics

I just love doing ten day reviews of nail strengtheners! I have already done OPI Nail Envy, Duri Rejuvacote, and today I’m showing you Nailtiques #2.  Do not confuse Nailtiques with Nailtek! Nailtek is a totally different product which does not work well for me at all!  But Nailtiques has been on my list of fave strengtheners for a few yrs now.  I ran out of it a while ago and my nail health went…

Black and White Skull Nails for #TheBeautyBuffs

Black and White Skull Nails for #TheBeautyBuffs

Hola chicas, I’m here with a Beauty Buffspost!  The theme we’re tackling today is BLACK AND WHITE.  It’s such a classic color combo, yet I rarely wear it.  Perhaps I steer towards more crazy color combos?  So if I’m going to wear basic black and white I want something out there and racy!  Like pirate nails or skulls and crossbones… and I have the perfect Cheeky nail stamping plate for the…

Born Pretty Store Review- CK05 Large Nail Stamping Plate

Born Pretty Store Review- CK05 Large Nail Stamping Plate

This is my first time trying a Born Pretty Store product.  This item was provided to me for review and it took about a month to get delivered to me in NY.  Born Pretty Store has very competitive prices and if you have some time to wait for your shipment, this could be a good option for you.  I am reviewing a nail stamping plate from their CK series and it’s relatively large compared to the normal…

Nails Inc. Garden Party- Westbourne Gardens

I have a cute NOTD for ya!  I was in the mood for something pretty, pink, girly and glittery.  So I whipped out my Nails Inc. special effects polish called Westbourne Gardens from their spring 2014 collection.  It’s a really chunky-looking glitter so I used my DIY peel-off basecoat for this.
