I've been sooo out of the game but I will be working my way back. I joined the Crumpet Nail Tarts for the 26 Nailart Ideas Challenge. Our first prompt is blue and silver.
I did this mani way before it was due because I knew I'd be out of town last weekend. However, life got on the way and I didn't get to photograph it better but I think it's kinda cool that it sort of matches my sweater.
So I'm back and posting late but it was a mani that turned heads :)
Fall is right around the corner. It's that shiny and metallic time of the year. Sally Hansen sure knows how to add the bling and glitz this season with new metallic shades in the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel collection and the Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Stud Kit.
I received Game of Chrome as part of this review as I totally NEEDED a gold metallic polish to add to my staple collection. I love the Miracle Gel formula and this baby IS in fact pigmented enough to use for stamping but as with many metallic shades and my limited photography skills, it's quite difficult to get a nice shot. But trust me when I tell you. This is one mani I will rock for days.
The stud kit is absolutely fabulous. It's made of three color studs, black, metallic gold and silver. Comes with an applicator and conveniently contained in vials for easy storage. I wish it came in more colors. I absolutely love how easy it is to store and retrieve the studs when needed by using vials instead of wheels or bigger containers.
Here's a closer look of the actual stamp from the geo stamp plate by Ejiubas
As you know, I love studded manis so stay tuned for more. This is only the first of many featuring this fun kit!!
ahhh the sweet sound of the 90's!!!!! finally something that's right up my alley. I am completely out of tune with "today's" jams and tv shows and the keep-up-with-the-times. This is for us, the true 90's babies and the loving era.
"Inspired by the 1990s but with a modern twist, the feminine pinks and pearls paired with deep purples, blues and grays capture the spirit of the decade that brought us grunge, baby doll dresses paired with Doc Martens, Kate Moss, and the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”. China Glaze puts a unique twist on the trend by utilizing some of the newest finishes in nail polish including a gorgeous matte satin in Combat Blue-ts (my personal fave) and slight color transitioning pearlescent in the aptly named Pearl Jammin’."
and one by one... this is the story all about how.....
this pink creme got twisted upside down. Her name is Fresh Prince-ss
Pearl Jammin' a blue opalescent. Seen here in 3 coats for full coverage but top any dark color with it for fresh princess hue.
Dope Taupe - a creme nude for a neutral touch.
Y'all Red-y For this red with shimmery tones. The perfect summer red to take you into the trek of Autumn.
And it even stamps well....
(seen with Fresh Prince-ss)
Jagged Little Teal: I got to be honest, I don't get the 90's reference on this one but totally get the teal hue!
Purple Fiction is a staple Autumn color
When in "those days" with the change of season, get this baby to Combat Blue-TS and rock on with this matte cobalt blue.
Heroine Chic it's a nice shimmery gray with relish/purple hues shimmer
Another princess worthy shade: Don't Mesh With Me.
a gorgeous lavender shimmer seen here with and without undies for that perfect mani that can turn any day outfit into a night bling.
Teen Spirit is the shade of my next S-Club 7 concert.
(do they even play anymore?)
Hey ya!!! don't miss out on this Blue-ya.
Not a fan of blue? this will turn you!
Holo At Ya Girl! is the glitter topper perfect for any of the shades of the collection. Seen here with Purple Fiction and Pearl Jammin'
The collection can be found at BeautyPlusSalon.com and selected shades at Ulta and Sally Beauty.
For those of you wondering if I have a right hand, as I always post pics of my right hand-manicures. There's a reason for that:
I am right handed and I can't do nailart with my left hand :/ I know, shame on me!
But here's the latest attempt. Using Pale to the Chief (nude) and Suzi the First Lady of Nails (green) by OPI from its most recent collection entitled Washington DC. I call this mani, DC goes to Paris ^_^
Stamped with black on black using Ejiubas geometric plate provided for review.
Full review of plate will be forthcoming. In the meantime, you can check it out yourself and start using a coupon code.
We are pleased to have received OPI’s latest launch, the Washington DC Collection to swatch and share with you.
"OPI Washington DC is the result of the number one salon brand’s collaboration with Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominated actress Kerry Washington, recently named the company’s first-ever Creative Ambassador. Washington worked closely with OPI co-founder and brand ambassador Suzi Weiss-Fischmann to develop and name this collection of dramatic, sophisticated interpretations of classic fall hues."
This collection is fully representative of all autumn color families: blues, greens, reds, purples, yellows, oranges, brown and neutrals. The names are super fun. Pays a full visit to our nation's capital in every shade.
