pretty mani but not for me. being pale, the white did bad things to my skin.

Colors used:
base: billie gold
stamp:W&W black creme

i tried to mimic the SH salon effects. it turned out okay. only kept the mani on for a few days.

stamp:billie gold

i really liked this mani. it was sweet. it was a nice change from all the random colors i had been using before.





(look at the sparkle)
see the pink? yea thats the reflection from my pjs! thats how sparkly this polish is

Colors used:
base: CH ruby pumps
accent nail :Miss B rainbow silver with topcoat of L.A Color silver sparkle

i have fallen in love with this mani. the dark red suits my skin tone and the silver sparkle is stunning. i love it.

speaking of red. what do you guys think of this new red lipstick i bought. i've wanted to try a red lipstick for a while but though it would look bad. what do you think?









Haul



Zoya Lo and Kelly
the pictures showed Lo as a much more light pink color. OPI beside it to show what a real light pink color is.


there is the example from their website.

anyways, i was kinda disappointed in how small the bottles were. i thought they were going to be bigger for 7.00 a bottle. 

nicole bring on the tinsel and SH HD cyber. i have figured out i dont like the shape of nicoles bottles. does anyone else find nicole's polishes really thick. its like the bottle dries up quickly.

SH HD isn't as sparkly/shiney as the other ones in the collection.  all the other ones are kinda halo-y but this one is kinda flat. maybe it will be different once i swatch it.




revelon scented in ocean breeze (a blue.green duochrome)  and cotton candy becuase hell yea! i have only swatched the cotton candy on one finger and the smell lasted for atleast 3 days. the color seemed kinda sheer tho. SH xtremem wear in gunmetal.





look at the hidden sparkle in gunmetal.




L.A Color in silver sparkle and Essie great expectations.
my first essie. i wasn't that pleased with it. it was plain and when i put it on my nailes it blended right in. anyone have any idea how to wear this grey/white color?





wow this was alot longer then i thought. im going to go study for my final and do a spring colored mani.

LOVE 
XOXO
