Pink & Silver Chevron

 I am currently out of town, but had a little down time while waiting on my sister to get home so she can color my hair, so I thought I would share with y'all my latest mani. 

I'm kinda on the fence with this one. I started out with 2 coats if Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink and waited for it to dry and I applied some chevron vinyls. Then I took a silver glittery polish from Sinful Colors which I think was called Charmed, I'll check when I get back home and update if needed. In any case it is a densely packed glitter with some small colored glitter, I mostly see pink which is why I paired it with the pink base. After I got the silver on I went to pull off the vinyls and I guess I didn't let my base dry enough and they pulled some of my polish off! To fix my mess up I took a small detail brush and painted a black line between the two polishes. 

I'm still not that great at free handing things, but I guess it will do LOL I don't think that it's terrible, it's just different. 

Hope you all are having a great day!

Back In My Gloria Days

Sponsored | Bought Myself | Press Sample | Nothing to Disclose | Giveaway Winnings | Gifted

Back in my Gloria Days is from the Modern Family Collection that Nicole by OPI put out. I found this little gem at TJ Maxx quite a while back for $2! I really don't know why I have not used it sooner, it is absolutely gorgeous! Love the shade of purple, but in the light you can catch hints of blue and sometimes some pink! I used 3 coats and it dried fairly quickly.

I also removed my acrylic and tips and just reapplied some acrylic to my natural nails to make them a stronger since they have grown out some since having the tips on. The acrylic is a lifesaver for my nails, I don't have to worry about them peeling on me now!

Hope you all have a great rest of the week! I will be out of town till Sunday unless I get trapped away from home because of snow, which according to some weather reports, it's a very likely thing that I might :/

Sweet Irish Creme

Sponsored | Bought Myself | Press Sample | Nothing to Disclose | Giveaway Winnings | Gifted

Today I want to show y'all Sweet Irish Creme from The Little LacquerBean. The pictures are not the best in the world and there is a funny story that goes along with that. So I see seen this polish on Instagram and decided to snag it when TLLB had her Black Friday sale, it was 50% off!! It is honestly the most beautiful nude polish I own, it has a scattered holographic effect to it and just looks amazeballs in the sunlight. I could not wait to try it on but I knew I had to wait for a sunny today to show off the full effect, well I get my sunny day and as soon as I get my nails painted and get ready to head outside for photos it just clouds up on me. I have worn this a couple of times and each time it gets cloudy when I go to take my photos!! I did manage to get one slightly sunny shot one day, but it's so funny that it always gets cloudy!

The first shot is the one that I got when it was slightly sunny, the second and third shots were inside with my phones flashlight on. It still looks pretty, but man in person in the sunlight @-@ WOW!

The Little LacquerBean also has nail vinyls and several other gorgeous polishes so stop by and check out her store! When I get the money I really want to get Frosty Balls, Goldfish in a Bag and Tractor Pulling.

Tomorrow I'll be back with Back in My Gloria Days!

Review: Kiss Complete Salon Acrylic Kit

Sponsored | Bought Myself | Press Sample | Nothing to Disclose | Giveaway Winnings | Gifted

Today I want to share with you my thoughts on the Kiss Complete Salon Acrylic Kit. First off let me start with the reason I went out and purchased this kit; simply I just have bad nails. It seems like no matter what I do to try and help them grow, nothing helps, I end up with weak nails that break and peel like you wouldn't believe. I've tried nail hardeners, I've tried using Vitamin E oil on them, filing the ends to 'seal' them off and I've not seen any real results from any of that. I got to a point where I was just fed up with my polish peeling off because my nails were peeling so off to Walmart I went to get this kit.

I looked at a couple other kits before I made the decision to go with this one. One reason I went with the Kiss brand is because I've used one of their acrylic kits before
