Everything is Blueeeee: Blue French Mani

Hi sweethearts! I hope you are all having a great day so far 😊 I have a cute mani that I did a while ago, and I wanted to share it with you!

 I used Formula X's Omni, and Infatuated, and a silver striper from KISS.

So I originally wasn't going to add the silver stripe linings, but it seemed like the edges were too unclean for me to not go through them LOL.

Done on my naked nails! Was going to add a sheer baby pink as a base, but I was lazy.... so sorry for the stained nails! xD

And just as a bonus to show you how obsessed I am with the color blue.....

Hahah hope you guys like it! Enjoy, and I'll see you guys next time!

Flirtin' Co Review: Polish Swatches and Mani Scrub

Hi guys! So I recently won a giveaway on Instagram for some goodies to this indie brand called Flirtin' Co. I picked up 2 polishes and a sugar mani scrub. Sham also sent me some business cards and an extra bubble blower to play with! Super cute haha

The owner, Sham, is a complete sweetheart! The sugar scrub leaked in the mail, and when I messaged her about it, she immediately sent me a replacement. The Pina Colada scent of the scrub is delicious haha.

So onto the polishes! The first is a color from her "Say I Do" collection called "To Have & To Hold". Beautiful soft green with a pearly yellow sheen, and it's scattered with holographic glitters. Formula is nice and thin, and I used 3 coats. If your nails are shorter, you can definitely get away with 2 thicker coats.

Saving my favorite for last, this is "PINKing of You", and it's gorgeous! A light pink with a pearly sheen, and packed with small fuchsia glitters and larger holographic glitters! This one definitely is a sparkle ball! Really fun, and formula was great! I used 2 coats for the picture, but you can build it up for more depth if you with another coat.

Overall, I just want to say that I'm very impressed with this company! Customer service, products, shipping time, everything is very nice! It was a great experience, and I definitely will be ordering from them again :)

Okay, that's it for today, thanks for reading!

VELVET SUGAR by Bath and Body Works Inspired Mani

Hi my sparkles! How was your day so far? Today I have a nail art post, (Yay not a swatch finally!!!) haha. It's inspired by this lotion that I've been desperately trying to use up xD I've had it for a while now, it's the Velvet Sugar Body Cream by Bath and Body Works. Not the biggest fan of the scent, but it works!

I wanted to do a mani based on the colors of the tube, originally I was going to do the floss/quilting technique, but I couldn't get that right, so I just went with striping haha. I also stamped on a turquoise floral design.

I used: Sally Hansen "Rupee Red" for the deep maroon color, Formula X "Brazen" for the pink, and Sinful Colors "Mint Apple" for the (little) splash of turquoise.

I originally did this mani in the glossy form, but I think it looked nicer matte, so I added Essie's matte topcoat over it. Here's the original version.

Okay, that's it for today's post! What's your favorite scent from Bath and Body Works? :)
