Geometric Double Stamping

We're leaving for Vegas this morning! Woohoo! Watch out Sephora, here I come!
I really love abstract or geometric designs in pretty much anything, so I've been wanting to use this design for awhile and finally got around to it!
I started with 2 coats of SquareHue- Day Glow, then stamped with Konad Special Black and BM-203. I wasn't quite satisfied with that, so I stamped again with Sinful Colors- Snow Me White and stamped the design upside down over top of the black. Topped it with one coat of HK Girl. I really love how this one turned out, it was really striking in person as well

See you all when I return from vacation!

Color Club- Cloud Nine Swatch

I don't use the term "OMG", but if I did, this would be an appropriate time. I just can't get enough of this polish. Every time I put it on, I just ooh an aah and annoy my husband telling him he has to come and see how amazing this is....again.

Two gorgeous, effortless coats is all it takes to wow me with this one.

Teal Gradient with Flower Stamping

So we went to Ross the other day, and naturally I had to scour through the polish. I found a set of 7 Color Club polishes for $7.99! The box said they were the Dazzling Diamond collection, or something like that. So after I got home, I started reading the names on the back of the box, and they were Red Carpet, or Red Velvet, or something way different that I would expect for all these springy colors. So I started searching online and I'm pretty sure what I actually got is the Spring 2012 Collection. So I could be wrong on the names of these polishes, but I think I got them all matched up.

I started with one coat of Color Club- Blue-ming. It's a really pretty light teal, almost a little minty green, but more blueish...that could be the worst description ever. Just trust me, it's pretty. Then I sponged the gradient with Blue-ming and Sinful Colors- Rise&Shine. I had already started stamping when I realized I forgot a picture of the gradient, so you get the gradient on my right hand. Then I stamped with W-110 and Milani- White on the Spot. Topped with one coat of HK Girl.

I just did a similar thing with my hair too! I've been platinum blonde for about a year now, so I was ready for a change and decided to try the ombre look! I love the way it turned out! The girl who does my hair it awesome!!

Jamberry Nails Review

I've been meaning to post this one for awhile, it's my first review and I was so excited!! I've heard of the Jamberry wraps before, but never tried them.
To apply these, you peel it off the plastic, then heat it with a blow dryer for 10-15 seconds until it gets soft and pliable, then apply it to the nail with a lot of pressure. They were easy to apply, but I realized after applying this mustache one that they're upside down! They come in one long strip, I cut it in half to do an accent nail, so on my right hand they were right side up, but this one ended up upside down.
On the rest of my nails, I used 2 coats of Calvin Klein- Bombshell.

I've heard that these last a long time, so I really wanted to see how long it would last for me. Unfortunately, by the next morning, it had lifted slightly at my cuticle and kept catching on my hair. I tried to apply more heat and pressure to get it to stay down, but it didn't work so well. I only had it on for about 3 days when I got tired of it catching on things and removed them. However, because this was my first time using them, I'm hoping I'll have better luck with the next one.

You can check out all the super cute designs and order your own Jamberry Nail wraps from Shea Caithaml.

Holo Leopard Print!

Oh my goodness! Almost 2 weeks since my last post! Sorry all! 
For this look, I started with 2 coats of Calvin Klein- Sheer Sparkle. Then stamped with Color Club- Cloud Nine and BM-221. Topped it all with one coat of HK Girl.

I just can't get enough of these holographic polishes and I wish I could buy every one of them!
