    Nail Stamping

    I tried nail stamping for the first time with the stuff I got from Born Pretty Store last month. I definitely need more practice. My stamper is super squishy, not sure if that’s part of the issue or not. I was also using white polish and the stamper is also white so it just blended right in. Got any tips for me? Leave them in the comments. #nailart #nailstagram #nailstamping from Instagram: http://ift.tt/1K2deX4

    New Nail Art Supplies

    Born Pretty Store had a Black Friday special where you could buy a $10 gift card for $2. So for $7.63 ($5.63 was my order total + the $2 for the gc) I got $15.63 worth of stuff. And I finally got the nail stamping stuff I’d been wanting to try.   I got 3 small brushes to use for cleaning off polish. I might end up using one of them for painting though (like art painting on paper/canvas). I picked out 8 stamping plates, a stamper & scraper, a mystery bag and a holder for the stamping plates. The picture for the holder shows both the round and octagon…

    My First Memebox & Review!

    As I mentioned in a post around the beginning of February, I saw a review on Youtube for a Memebox and have been wanting to get one. Well later that same day I got an email from Memebox with an offer to good to pass up, so I bought the Colorbox #6 Pastel Hues box. It shipped out pretty fast and I feel like it go to the States fast too. Then it sat at Customs or something for 4 days and I got antsy. lol The closer packages get, the more impatient I get for them to arrive. Finally it got released and set for delivery and then the…

    Zoya Mystery Mini Trio and More Review

    About a month ago Zoya had a special where if you ordered 3 full size bottles you got 3 mystery mini shades for free and just paid $15 for shipping. That was a really good deal. But then they said if purchased $25 in products, you got the mystery trio and free shipping. That was an even better deal. So I did that and got 6 full size bottles, plus the mini trio for $27. Starting with my left hand pinky finger… Anais. It’s black, basic black with very little sparkle. Not a bad color, just “plain”. It was one of the mystery trio colors, but to buy it in…

    My First Beauty Box Subscription

    I signed up for Walmart’s Beauty Box the other night. At about 2:30am. lol Unlike most subscription boxes, this one you only get 4 times a year (one for each season). And at $5 a box it’s a really good price for my budget and income. I’ve considered signing up for other boxes in the past, but have heard iffy things about Birchbox and Ipsy. Such as having to sign up for a year’s subscription with paying in full at the time you sign up instead of just getting one box and then choosing to get the next one, not being able to state you don’t want certain products, etc. Like for…

    Dotting Tool Nail Art

      I posted a picture on Instagram a few weeks ago, but didn’t make a post, that I’d gotten a set of dotting tools (finally! lol) along with some other items. I’ve used the dotting tools once already and my nails came out ok. I took pictures, but never posted them. Why? I actually just forgot. But here are those pictures… And here is my second attempt. I started off with 3 coats of Zoya Cole. I let it dry and then starting placing dots with Zoya Renee. After those dots dried, I started again with LA Colors Atomic, then added NYC Empire State Blue. Lastly I added very small dots with LA…
