Blogger Bragger Autumn Nail Art Challenge - Silver

Saturday, November 29, 2014


purchased by me
This is the 9th week of the "Blogger Bragger Autumn Nail Art Challenge". There are only 3 more weeks in this challenge and then we start the "Blogger Bragger Winter Nail Art Challenge". I want to invite you all to participate in it. It's so much funner to have a challenge when there are a lot of people participating!

If you would like to join us in anticipation of this challenge just visit us at https://www.facebook.com/groups/bloggerbragger/ and ask to join the group. The group isn't just for those in the challenge. If your just looking for a place to post your blog work, you can do that too.

I have been unhappy with my photography for some time and it is because I have an old camera. I am finally getting a new one next week. I am so excited! It should make a world of difference.

This week's theme is silver. This is a combination inspiration. It is black vines with white flowers (with pink centers) on a silver background. It's a little bit shaky because of my bad hand (due to my stroke). I need more practice.


Nail Art Tuesday - Foil & Gold

Wednesday, November 26, 2014


purchased by me
The last design I did with foil was so pretty and fun that I decided that I'd try to include foil in my schedule more often. Today I used it to just accent one nail and it looks great. I kind of think the print looks a little Asian. It's a deep fuchsia with the outline of little gold flowers on it.


Smith & Cult Selected Polish - A Review


purchased by me
I am thrilled to introduce you to a new line of polish called Smith & Cult. I saw this in one of my polish magazines and looked it up on line. The colors are amazing and I had a hard time just choosing a few. They came in two days and the bottles are gorgeous but not as exquisite as the polish inside! I love how evenly the polish goes on and it's creamy texture. I am in love with this polish. It is highly pigmented so that the nail doesn't show through. I can't say enough about how lovely I think this polish is.

Smith & Cult is being launched by Dineh Mohajer who launched Hard Candy in the 90s'. Here is an article I found about it: http://dujour.com/beauty/smith-cult-nail-polish-dineh-mohajer-interview/.

These are the colors I got to introduce you to this new line. From left to right they are Bitter Buddhist, Cut the Mullet, and She Said Yeah.

Blogger Bragger Autumn Nail Art Challenge - Brown


purchased by me
This is the 8th week of the "Blogger Bragger Autumn Nail Art Challenge". There are only 4 more weeks in this challenge and then we start the "Blogger Bragger Winter Nail Art Challenge". Here is a sneak peek of the things we are going to be creating...

Glitzkrieg War Paint Nebula Collection - A Review

Sunday, November 23, 2014


 press sample
I can't think of anything to say except this is GREAT polish! I rarely run in to an indie polish that I can genuinely say that about, but I really liked these. I really needed only two coats to get a deep color coverage and they were smooth and the consistency was beautiful going on the nail.

She sent me eight polishes. From left to right they are: White Nebula, Rosette Nebula, Smoky Nebula, Butterfly Nebula, Reflection Nebula, Crab Nebula, Orion Nebula, and Dumbbell Nebula.

A hundred years ago, the world was at war. A war that cost at least 16 million lives. A lot happened in November 1914 – the first Battle of Ypres, France and Britain declaring war on Turkey, and so on.

Incidentally, it was exactly a 100 years ago that the first Indian force left for Egypt to fight for their “mother country”. On November 22, 1914, they won their first laurel by capturing Basrah in then-Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq). The war moved to India’s frontier a week later. Colonialism has long vanished and the world map has changed since then, but being an Empire military history-buff, I wanted to mark the month with a poppy manicure – despite it being a whole week past Remembrance Day.

I had done a poppy manicure last year for Remembrance Day (see here) and did not want to repeat the look. I hunted through my stamping plates and – nothing. No stickers, nothing that remotely resembled a poppy. I was resigning myself to doing something like last year’s freehand mani when my eyes fell on the Ciate Flower Manicure Kit I had picked up from Sephora a couple of months ago.
The kit contains the following:

Nail Art Tuesday - Football Nails

Thursday, November 20, 2014


purchased by me
This week is going by lightning fast and I'm not getting anything done!

The other day I got the supplies to make my November Nail Art Kit for My MONHTLY Stunning Nails. This month I am providing the materials for Football Nails! I decided on this design because it is the season and they are accessible to all levels of nail artists. I thought I'd share the finished product with you.


Blogger Bragger Autumn Nail Art Challenge - Pink

Tuesday, November 18, 2014


purchased by me
This is the 7th week of the "Blogger Bragger Autumn Nail Art Challenge". The theme for today is Pink. I found my inspiration on Pinterest as usual. This design gave me an excuse to use Zoya Ginni again. It's a pink Magical PixieDust and I just love it!


Preview of the Week to Come - 11/16


Hello all! Can you believe it's the middle of the month already? Soon it will be Thanksgiving and then Christmas. I had only planned on being in this apartment for six months and it's now a year and a half. Oh well, I'm not unhappy here. In fact, I am very satisfied and content.

I don't know why I can't keep up but I am already behind again. I will try to catch up this week so there might be some random posts tucked into the schedule. It may be a strange week.

The nails I have planned for this week are extraordinary. Let me tell you about them....

This week I am planning for the week of November 16th - November 22nd...
  • Sunday: Preview/Roundup/Newsletter - I forgot about the "The Beauty Blogazon Weekly Roundup" so we won't be having that. However, an issue of the Newsletter is due so I need to get that out. Hurry and sign up if you want to be on the mailing list!
  • Monday: Swatches and Review Mainstream - I will be swatching and reviewing Zoya's new Matte polishes.
  • Tuesday: Tuesday Nail Art - Tuesday I am doing Football Nails for "Nail Art Tuesday". "2-for-Tuesday" link-up will not be held this week. 
  • Wednesday: Pink Wednesday - For "Pink Wednesday" the polish I've selected is China Glaze Spring in my Step.
  • Thursday: Throwback Thursday - On Thursday I have a guest poster for you, Renu MyBeautyJuction. I am excited to see what see has prepared for us.
  • Friday: Swatches and Review Indie - For the Indie polish this week I am reviewing Gliztkrieg War Paint.

Super Nail Selected Polish - A Review

Monday, November 17, 2014


 press sample
I have had these polishes for a few week, but if I had any idea how pretty they are I would have bumped them up in the rotation! Super Nail sent me six of her cutest polishes to swatch for you. Just wait till you see them!

The picture shows them in this order (from left to right): All Star, Ribbons & Lace, Harvest Moon, Wedding Bells, Pirate's Booty, and First Comes Love.

Pink Wednesday - Zoya Miranda

Friday, November 14, 2014


purchased by me
I am so excited about today's "Pink Wednesday". It is a PixieDust by Zoya called Miranda. I don't know how I missed it but I don't have it in my collection.

It is a sensational matte glitter in a berry color. The juxtaposition between the matte and the glitter is so amazing. It is a great idea, whoever came up with it. The color and texture reminds me of strawberry swirls.


Throwback Thursday - Misa Shields Up

Friday, November 7, 2014


purchased by me
This is my first "Throwback Thursday" and I'm starting with a polish that I have been wanting to get to for a long time, Misa Shields Up. It looks like it will be a dark grey in the bottlle but it is a sheer polish. I was disappointed at first but I put on three coats and was happy with the outcome. My wedding is going to be white and dove grey and so I might have found my polish for the wedding/reception!


Pink Wednesday - Cult Nails Center of Attention


purchased by me
Well we're back to just one nail polish per day on "Pink Wednesday" now that October has pass and Breast Cancer Awareness Month is over. We should keep it in the front of our mind though (Breast Cancer that is), even if we aren't recognizing it as an occasion.

Today I have for you Cult Nail's Center of Attention. It is a topper so I put it over Sally Hansen's Berry Juicy. I love how it turned out. They look good together. It's very playful.

Thursday, November 6, 2014

This month the top three were (1) Gazing at the Moon, (2) Butter London Scallywag, and (3) Spiderwebs.

1st = Gazing at the Moon:

Nail Art Tuesday - Election Day: Patiotic Nails

Wednesday, November 5, 2014


purchased by me
Yesterday was the mid-term elections for the United States so I decided to do some Patriotic Nails to honor that. I have to be grateful to live in the United States were we have a Democratic system of representation. Even though I take it for grated most of the time I am blessed to be a citizen.

I have an another motive behind these nails. Nail It (the magazine) put out a call for nails with foil and I wanted to get my design published.

I haven't used foil for a while and I forgot how much I like it! I'll have to plan it in to schedule more often.

So here is the patriotic nails I did...
