Nail Mail from USA!!!

Hi there!!!!

Sorry for being absent lately but I'm at our summer house and things are just settling down. I'll spend my summer here and I probably won't be posting as much. I did not bring most of my polishes, and I won't be buying new polish either... !!!! Shock!!! Horror!!! Gasp!!!!

Anyway, today I'll share my latest swap with you. The package came all the way from Pittsburg, USA from the lovely Deneen. I've been in Pittsburg years ago and I have such lovely memories there... And as you'll be witnessing below, Deneen spoiled me a lot!!! Let me tell you, Deneen is the Queen of stuffing envelopes! I'm still surprised at how she did fit all of these in a small bubble envelope!!! LOL

Here are the contents of the package....




OMG Color Clubs!!! La Pettite Mint-sieur, Holy Chixk!, Je T'aime and In De-Nile... They are so cute!!! I love them separately and together!!!! 


Color Club Lady Holiday and Silver Lake, gorgeous greys... 



Sinful Shines Sleek, Alfresco and Pragmatic... Loving them already! I tried them quickly on a swatching wheel and they have a great formula!!!



Avon Eclipse (from the holographic collection), Essie Where's My Chauffeur (OMG what a great color) and all time favorite, Duri Rejuvacote!!! Duri really helps my nails!


OPI Push and Shove and OPI This Gown Needs a Crown!!! Yay for silver!!!!



A few months ago, we had a Spring Challenge at our Facebook group and I won this polish from La Bella Vernice!!! Actually I picked this one. It is "The Devil Wears Purple"! I named it!!! Yes, I did!!! It is a holographic thermal that changed from pink to purple!!!! Go check it out!!! Anyway, Deneen was kind enough to be my mule!




Owl notebooks with 3D covers!!! I fell in love with them. So did Selin. And we fought over them! I won the one on the right... :P


The cutest magnetic notepad!!!


An Iphone case!!! And it is multichrome!!!


Princess pens!!! Yay!!!!



A gorgeous necklace and ring for Selin! She loved them!!!



All time favorite cuticle product!



Mint M&Ms are my favorites. Birthday Cake ones are Selin's... :P



Glow in the dark bracelets.. These will come in handy when we'll go partay-ing!!!! :P


Thank you again for everything Deneen, this was a really gorgeous package! Love you!!!

Born Pretty Store Half Round Metal Balls and Dior Porcelaine - again

I just had to use my Dior Porcelaine again. But this time I used it to show you the new studs I got from Born Pretty Store.

This time I'll show you the half round studs that you can find here. They are like tiny beads, with flat bottoms so they stick better on your nail.

They come in two sizes; 1.5 and 2 mm in silver and gold colors. Again, there are more than 350 pieces, which lasts a really long time...



Here's the mani I made...

I used two coats of Dior Pocelaine for thumb, idex and middle fingers. The problem with this polish is this; it is streaky in the first coat. But if you use a second generous coat, it settles down. Almost.... :D
I added one 2mm stud in the middle and 2 1.5 mm studs to the sides.

Anyway, for the ring finger I used OPI My Vampire is Buff with Vivid Lacquer VL10 stamping and finally for the pinky, I used OPI It's Frosty Outside.





To order these studs, visit Born Pretty Store or go directly to this page. They cost $3.28 now for about 360 studs with free international shipping. And if you want an extra 10% off, just use the code below!!!!

Born Pretty Store Round and Square Rhinestores with Zoya

Hi there!

Today, I'll be showing you some round and square studs from Born Pretty Store.

I don't know about you but I love metal studs. I think they look really cool with manis. Altough they don't last very long time for me. I don't use glue to fix them because I don't like taking off process. So I put them over damp polish. And unfortunately with that method, they don't last very long. But who cares, I change my mani almost daily... LOL

Anyway, for those like me, these studs are plenty and they come in a round box like this one...

This one is the picture I took.
And this one is taken  from the Born Pretty Store website.


Well, judging from these two pictures, I think I got way too much from the round ones and less of the square ones. I just wish they were even... :(

Here are the close-ups of the studs... They are 2mm each.

And their sizes in centimeters....


Anyway, for the mani, I used Zoya Vespa and Neely, two coats of each. And I added silver square and round studs.





Well, if you want to order these studs, visit Born Pretty Store or go directly to this page. They cost $4.89 now for about 350 studs with free international shipping. And if you want an extra 10% off, just use the code below!!!!

Flormar Jelly Look - Ruby


Hi everyone!

Today I have yet another color from the Flormar Jelly Look collection. This time the color is "Ruby"...

You know, Flormar just started giving names to polishes, but I must say, they are still at the begining of the road. This is no Ruby people!!! I3d call this one a pink, even a radiant orchind, but not ruby... LOL

Anyway, the color is amazing, as well as the formula. It is highly pigmented so it can be used for stamping, which is a bonus... :P



To spice it up, I first made a mesh stamping followed by Konad m65 roses...

Flormar Jelly Look - Pale Eucalypt

Recently Flormar released a new collection called Jelly Look. It consists of 10 colors with a flat brush and great pigmentation with jelly shine. Think about Barry M Gellies... Like those...

Today I'll show you Pale Eucalypt from this collection. I have two coats without a topcoat.




It really looks like Essie Vested Interest, so I wanted to make a comparison...

Excuse the over flashed photo here. I think "someone" must have messed with my camera settings... :P



Not dupes, but they are really close. Flormar is just a tad darker. If you can't have the Essie, Flormar will do the same job for you... :P
