Posts Won't Be Up

So guys I'm now in the process of moving into a bigger house with my mom and I don't know how long the move will take. I'm estimating that I will have internet at least by May 6th and my posts will be up back to normal. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but you can leave any suggestions if you want. Have a nice week ladies. See you soon. I just didn't want you to think I was giving up on you guys.

China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat Review

All I have to say about this top coat is it sucks. For lack of a better word of course. I needed a thicker top coat so I thought hey why not try this one since I love CG polishes so much. Once I started using this I then realized what I had gotten myself into. I then did my research and found out that many people disliked it. Not only do I dislike it , I HATE IT . First of it shrinks your nail polish from the tips. When your nail polish chips it chips in one thin sheet. It also seems to change the thickness of your nail polish. It smells absolutely atrocious and my nails chip within in 2 days. I've used this for over a month now & I still have so much left. To me this is a waste of money. The only good thing about this product is the shine that it leaves. I'm going to obviously try to use it all but I don't know how much longer I can use this. I think I will go back to my Beauty Secrets for now. Any top coat suggestions ? Other than Seche Vite ? Honestly guys don't buy this product. Enjoy !

Shatter & Coconut Kiss

Hey ladies. This is basically another variation of a post I've done recently. This time it is in CG Coconut Kiss. I did a french tip on all fingers but the ring fingers and covered it in OPI Black Shatter. After that I underlined the french tip with a black acrylic paint. For the ring fingers I used the same purple and the same black but did some what of a linear design. It's simple and receives a plethora of comments. Enjoy !

First Pedicure Post !

Hey ladies. It's literally been so long since I've given myself a pedicure. Hence my toes looks busted in these pictures. For my first pedicure I decided to just do some grass and flowers. To make the grass I used multiple stripers in different tones of green and one green to make the stem. For the white petals I used acrylic paint. For the center of the flowers I used an acrylic paint in baby blue and one in a glittery pink. This was literally the easiest thing I have ever done. I like the simplicity of the look and just how wearable it is for the season. Although I haven't gotten to show these bad boys off because the weather has been pretty crappy here. Nevertheless Enjoy !

Sinful Colors Fig

I brought Fig maybe about a week ago. It was also apart of one of my haul posts so yes you have seen this before. So since I had cut my nails down I decided to swatch this color. I'm on April vacation right now , so I don't plan on doing anything extravagant this week. So I said hey why not see what Fig looks like. I still have it on my nails currently and it is absolutely gorgeous. Its a deep violet with a bit of burgundy I would say. It has the smallest bit of shimmer when you look at it up close. The application in general was just okay. The initial coat was a bit bumpy but once I but the second coat on it was beautiful. I could see this as I color I keep going back to . Enjoy !

My Bare Nails !

So I've cut down nails /: I didn't want to do it but I had to. It was just bugging me that my nails were so much longer than my thumb nails so I did the big chop. My thumbs are still a bit shorter so I didn't show it. But for the most part I tried to keep them all the same size. I would say I have a little yellowing but it isn't that bad. On my nails I just used Bond-aid and I used Nail Magic Nail Hardener. That's all you see on my nails here. I hope you guys like posts like these. I think I'll be posting bare pictures here to mark nail growth. Enjoy !

Shatter French Tip

Well I was supposed  to post yesterday but I was swamped with homework ; sorry guys. Just the normal life of a 10th grader. Well anyways this is gonna be a short post anyways because again I have a lot of homework , so I just took a break. This is pink french manicure in Folly from Sinful Colors. The black shatter is from OPI. Then I topped of the mani with a silver glitter line. This honestly is one of the easiest manis that I could do. I actually have done this mani over in purple so you will be seeing that soon. Enjoy guys !

Yet Another Shatter Post

Hey guys I hope you all had a nice weekend and I hope you have a great week ahead ! First of all as a little note for myself I'm so proud that I've been pretty consistent with my posts and the followers are rolling in. Once I reach the right amount of followers and purchase more nail polishes I will be doing a giveaway ! So look forward to that. On to the good stuff , since my nails still have been breaking I haven't done much of a design so I've been playing it safe. For this manicure I painted 8 nails excluding the point fingers in OPI Black Onyx. For the two pointer fingers I painted them in Rimmel London 60 Seconds Dry in Grey Matter. After doing that I realized one I should've did the gray on ring fingers and then that it was too plain. So I decided to put a little spin on the pointer fingers with OPI Black Shatter. I ended up liking this mani a lot. So I hope you guys do , it's a simple but cute manicure. Enjoy !

China Glaze Digital Dawn

I was so excited to get my first holographic polish and then I was kind of let down by CG. This color was in my previous haul & I hadn't got the chance to really use it because I had already had on a mani. So this past Sunday when I did my mother's mani I had a chance to swatch it. It's a nice color in itself but it isn't really all that holographic. You can see the holo in some lights but it isn't what I expected. This picture is without top coat because I decided to add a design to it which I will save for the next blog. Enjoy !

It was just one of those days....

My mother and I were just having one of those lazy Sundays when she decided she wanted her nails done. My mom is very much into dots. She's as simple as it gets when it comes to nails. It's so funny because she looks foward toAnother Bottle Of Polish's nail designs with the dots. So we decided to give her some simple dots. For a base color I used Sally Hansen Gunmetal. For the gray dots I mixed a white and black acrylic paint and then some simple dots and she was done. This one was a short one. Nevertheless , Enjoy !
