Painted Polish Nail Charms & Nail Art Review

Press Sample So this post is kind of a long time in the making. I’ve received several nail charms from the Painted Polish shop and have been playing with them quite a bit. Now, everyone pretty much knows my nail art/decoration skill is limited, but I came up with several manicures using these gorgeous gems to show you! I thought these were a great addition to the Painted Polish shop to go along with her glittery creations. First – let’s take a look at the variety of items I received! There are a few more – this is just an assortment I’ll be showing you today! Let’s take a closer look! GOLD & SILVER CROWN CHARMS These are super cute! They are a little wide for my narrow nail beds, but still cute and wearable! Price: $2.50 for 2 gold or 2 silver CRYSTAL BOW CHARMS Probably my favorite! These…

Painted Polish Fall Striper Trio – Spiced Striper, Crunk Striper & Wasted Striper Review & Nail Art

Press Sample I have so many nail art goodies to show you tonight and tomorrow from Painted Polish! Last month I showed you the 3 debut Stripers in the Painted Polish shop. To follow up with those 3, Painted Polish has released another trio for Fall 2015! This trio consists of Spiced Striper, Crunk Striper and Wasted Striper! Did I mention last time that I love the names? In these photos you will also get a little taste of some nail charms that Painted Polish also carries. That post will be up tomorrow since there are so many photos to go through! Now, we all know my nail art is fairly beginner level – so I did my best. I felt they came out pretty good though! The stripers come in thin 10ml bottles with a thin, long brush. The thin brush makes it easier to make a thin line…

Rite Aid October Beauty Extravaganza With Essie Fall 2015 Collection!

Sponsored This October, Rite Aid has some more amazing deals with a new Beauty Extravaganza Event! During this event I picked up some Fall 2015 Essie shades, Leggy Legend & Frock ‘N Roll, as well as the classic Essie shade, Ballet Slippers. Of course no Essie mani would be complete without Essie Good To Go Top Coat, so I picked that up as well. I decided to go with a nice and simple nail art look for this Fall nail look and picked a simple dotticure. Don’t have a nail dotting tool? That’s okay! A simple bobby pin will do the trick (and guess what – if you happen to not have those either you can snag some at Rite Aid!) Here are the supplies I’ll be working with for this easy to do manicure. From left to right in back: Essie Ballet Slippers, Leggy Legend, Frock ‘n Roll. In the…

It Girls Stamping Plates 101, 102 & 103 Review & Nail Art

Press Sample This is a long overdue post and was a blast to play with. Due to my time constraints, I usually don’t have a ton of time to do nail art, so stamping plates are perfect for me. It Girls sent over 3 plates for me to play with and try out, and I have to tell you – these are some gorgeous plates with cute designs that were easy to use! I received all 3 plates and I did a couple random manis using the 3 plates. It Girls Fashion Plate 101 First up we will look at It Girls Fashion Plate 101! This one gave me a little trouble and I couldn’t pick up images very well. Others have had great success and I’m still a VERY new stamper, so it very well could have been user error. It was a beautiful plate though and I did…
