Christmas Presents Nail Art: Inspired by Nailasaurus!

Soooo, hi everyone! Congrats on surviving the end of the world yesterday haha :3 Today, I have a Christmas Gift Mani! :D I'm sooo in holiday spirit and I received and gave so many gifts yesterday, the last day of school. Love my BFFS :3 Anyway, this mani is inspired by this mani here from the looovely Samasaurus! Glitter, bows and rhinestones. What more can you ask for?

I used 1 coat of Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby for the red and topped it off with ELF's Golden Goddess, a gorgeous gold glitter. For the green, I used 2 coats of Maybelline Color Show Tenacious Teal and topped it off with 1 coat of Sinful Colors Call You Later, a green glitter.

A darker pic to show the gold glitter in Golden Goddess!

Before the ribbons. This is in natural light :) I love the green glitter :3

After black acrylic, apply gold. Then ribbons :D

Maybelline Color Show: Tenacious Teal, ELF: Golden Goddess, Sinful Colors: Call You Later, Ruby Ruby, Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear: Red Carpet, Maybelline Color Show: Bold Gold
That's it for today! I really love this mani, and I'm hoping to keep it on for Christmas. What are you going to wear on your nails for Christmas? :3

Black Glittery French, Winter Ball Mani

Hi everyone! Last night was Winter Ball, a Moonlit Masquerade. I went with my date, my bubu bear :3 I've had my nails bare for almost a week already because I didn't know what dress I'm doing to wear. So I bought a black and gold dress, I'll probably have some pictures if you guys want haha :P
SO ANYWAAAYYY, my nails. I decided to go with a black french, so I can match my dress. I do believe I've seen something similar and that was probably what inspired me but I honestly can't remember where I've seen it, so sorry!

Do you like the holo? :D

I used 2 different lightings for these pics, tell me if you like the lighting on the first and second picture, or the other ones!

Here's what I used:
Nameless Shimmery Onyx Love and Beauty color, Claire's Glitter Topcoat, Icing's Frost Yourself, Essie's My Private Cabana

And then I just stamped on some flowers and added rhinestones :3 Hope you guys like this mani, because I LOOOVE IT. What a way to remember Winter Ball (:

Jelly Sandwich, Dupe Comparison Glitters, Elf :D

Hey babycakes! Today I have some stuff to show you. Don't really want to talk to much, I've been writing way too much for my college apps so my fingers are kinda like... yea xD
Dupe comparison of American Apparel SuperNova, and Claire's Bedazzled, those multicolored glitters

Middle finger is Bedazzled, pinky and indexed are SuperNova, ring is ELF's Golden Goddess

Base color: Sinful Colors Uniforn, one coat... really sheer haha

I think this was 3 or 4 coats

Golden Goddess! :D Really pretty small silver and gold glitter with big silver and holo glitter. Love :3

I layered another coat of Unicorn over all of it :3
Sooooooo, as you can see, Bedazzled is a bit more glittery, but they're pretty much dupes. (:
Alright, I'm tired. Going to sleep now, night guys :*

Regarding Liebsters and Blog Your Heart Out's.

Hi everybody! It's a bit of a different post today, and I'm going to address the awards I've been recently nominated for by some wonderful ladies.
First of all, I want to thank all of those who nominated me! Thank you so much! Really, I've received so many, and every time I see it, I feel all warm and fuzzy inside, no joke! It's great to be appreciated for my work :)
So anyway, I'm a bit busy lately with college apps and finals soon to come, so I've scheduled some posts, and really don't have time to fill out those awards ): I'm so sorry! I promise, after all this passes, I'll take more time to develop my blog :3

Thank you guys so much, once again!

Wet n Wild Disturbia Review and Swatches

Hi my sweetcakes! Today, I have a vampy color that came out for Halloween, if I'm not mistaken. It's Disturbia by Wet n Wild, a dark eggplant purple with very subtle microshimmer.

2 coats under direct sunlight. Look at that beautiful purple base!

2 coats.

Flash 1 coat

Flash! Look :D

Flash, trying to capture shimmer lol

Lookie, my friend and I had on the same nail polish! Totally coincidence too haha
The formula on this was really easy to work with! Smooth and easy to apply, like most Wet n Wilds, the only complaint I have is that with the Mega Last line, their brushes are big. And sometimes, they're not all the same size, so when they make it slightly bigger, it can end up being too big and very troublesome to get a nice cuticle curve. ):
And also, I realized that this somewhat resembles Lincoln Park After Dark by OPI, but that is WAYYY darker and way more black. I already frankened my LPAD because it was way too dark and too close to black so I added a lot of white and clear polish. :P

Allllllright, that's it for today! Have a nice day everyone :3
