LynBDesigns Glitter Love!!

*All products were provided for an honest review

Today we have some really wonderful glitters from LynBDesigns. She comes up with unique collections and is inspired by movies, books and many other interesting things you wouldn't think could be made into a polish. All her polishes are 3-Free!

First up is Red Fish, Blue Fish from the Many Colors of Seuss Collection.

This glitter bomb has a mix of red, blue, green and silver micro glitters with tiny black and white squares. I swatched using 2 coats  of RFBF over one coat of Sinful Shine Most Sinful with 2 coats of top coat.

The formula of this polish was a DREAM! It applied evenly and smooth, which is surprising for such a dense glitter polish. It was top coat hungry and could have even used a third coat, but that doesn't bother me if it applies well. 

Overall, I would say this is the perfect glitter polish!

Next up is Oh, You Beautiful Idiot from the Innuendos in Space Collection. 

This is another glitter bomb made with matte teal stars and an assortment of small glitters in green and blues.

When I first saw this in the bottle I fell in love. I love the color and the stars! I decided to use it without undies! The formula for this one wasn't as pleasant. It has that typical thick, goopyness you expect from a glitter polish. And the biggish stars didn't help things. But if you've worked with these kinds of polishes before you know how to manipulate them and get a good coat of polish on. So after two thick coats of polish and two thick coats of top coat, I was really happy with the super-sparkley results!

Then there was this little devil. Stars aren't always cooperative, even when you try to push them down with a wood stick. I clipped this with a cuticle cutter when it was super dry and added a little more top coat.

The stars are awesome, but I wish there was a contrast in the color so they stood out more.

Real Dried Flowers and Gold 3D Nail Art Stickers

*All products were provided for an honest review

There have been a lot of nail art supplies popping up in different stores. It's nice to see the nail art trend branching out. But buyer beware!!! These supplies are being sold for much more than they are worth because of supply and demand. Not many companies are selling these products in stores, and most people don't know of good websites (cough, cough, bornprettystore.com) to purchase them from so they set the prices as high as they think people will purchase them.

Born Pretty Store by far has the best prices, the most products to choose from and FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE!!

First up, we have real dried flowers in 12 colors for the amazing price of $3.48. Each color comes with 4 flowers in the container pictured.


I used cuticle nippers to separate the small flower stems. I then used a tweezer to dip the back of each flower into top coat and placed it onto the nail.

The flowers looked really nice without top coat, but we all know that wouldn't last a minute. I used Sally Hansen Dries Instantly very thickly on the flower area. I needed about 3 coats to get an almost smooth finish. You could probably be ok with sealing the flowers on with just one coat, but I'm not crazy about that bumpy finish so I laid it on thick.

I love the way these look and I've had a ton of compliments. People can't believe they are real flowers! So fun!!

Next up are some gold 3D nail art stickers that are just $1.99 per set. They come in silver or gold and have many different shapes to choose from.  You can find these on their site here.

These look so awesome and they are so easy to apply.  You just stick them on and cut off the excess. I'm not usually in to the 3D nail art but these are just the right amount of 3D.  They don't stick out too much.

The contrast on the black polish really makes it pop.  I have seen other reviewers use it on lighter colors, which gives it a more subtle look.

Ombre Dots... It's Nail Artastic!

I have really been slacking on my nail art posts.  Summer has been so fun and busy that I haven't been paying attention to my nails and manicures, oops!  I have all these ideas but no time to actually try them!  I've wanted to try this particular design for a while and I'm so happy that I finally did! 

A simple dotting pen and varying shades of green/teal make a mani like this so quick and easy.  I only used 3 colors because my nails are fairly short but if you have longer nails you can add a 4th or 5th color for a more dramatic ombre effect.

On my thumb nail I made the mistake of not using Seche Vite for my top coat and the dots smudged a bit.  But, I was too lazy to redo it and it's barely noticeable.  You can see the difference with all the other nails, no smudging there!  That's probably my favorite benefit of Seche Vite, it won't smudge your nail art even when you have a white base. 

This reminds me of a beach towel design

The colors I used for this mani are:
Sally Hansen White On
Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet
Sinful Shine Rendezvous
Julep Lena

This may be my favorite mani of the summer so far.  What kind of beachy manis have you been sporting this summer?

MOD Lacquer Madness Part 1

Aren't these amazing??? I first saw MOD Lacquers in my Facebook newsfeed when a fellow blogger posted using Kosmic Karma (see that post here). I loved it so much I had to have it...and 6 others. LOL!  This is the first installment:

First up is Seabound.  MOD's etsy description says Seabound is a light sheer mint green cream that has tiny sparks of rainbow colors from the micro holographic glitter.  It's not so much minty, but more sea foam green.  

I put a heavy coat of a true mint polish as a base color and that didn't make a difference. Oh well. It's still an awesome polish. I had a hard time capturing the holo in these pics, but it's there. I used this on my toes too!!

Waxing Whimsical is a sheer mint green jelly base with a mix of different sizes and shapes of neon pink glitter. Again, not so much a mint, but a sea foam green. 

I LOVE this polish. The color combination is fantastic!!! These pics are of my left hand. I had to fish a little for the larger squares.

When I got to my right hand I got a little surprise...BUTTERFLIES!! Well hello there!! Now I love this polish even more!!

Cobalt Flame is a sheer bright cobalt blue with a hidden pink shimmer. Hidden is a great way to describe the pink shimmer. You can kind of see it in the pic below.

I have a bunch of cobalt blue polishes, but I had to have this one too. This is 3 coats. The shimmer definitely sets it apart from all the others.

I wore this mani to a wedding, so I added the heart accent using neon polish and glequins. Super cute!!

MOD Lacquers can be purchased on Etsy
Follow them on Facebook, they have deals all the time and release new shades frequently.

I love that most of there polishes come in minis. I bought 7!! And I got free shipping when spending more than $25. That's a great deal!!

4th of July Nail Art

Yesterday I posted a quick pic of my 4th of July mani on Facebook. It's the only pic I have so here it is again. Not too bad for a cellphone pic with my moms hydrangeas. LOL!

Polishes used:
Zoya Carmen
Essie Beyond Cozy
China Glaze White On White
Nailtini Blue Flame (sheer topper)
Sinful Shine Most Sinful

My sister and I had a great day with our family. There's a huge parade that goes by our parents' house every year. We watched that, then BBQed and hung out with friends all day. 

We hope you all had a great 4th!!

Just another mani Monday

Ohhh Mondays, why are you so dreadful?  Nothing like some fun nail art to brighten your Monday...

The colors featured in this mani are Essie No Baggage Please and Zoya Dove.  I painted my nails with No Baggage Please first and used striping tape to create the Dove triangles.  Finally, I used a dash of silver glitter on the accent nail.

I'm loving this color combo!  And I cannot get enough of striping tape, the design possibilities are endless!  I have many more stripng tape ideas up my sleeve for future manis.  What's your favorite use of striping tape?
