Swatch Me - Jordana Glitter in Gemstones

Happy Tuesday

I got this Jordana Glitter a while now but i'm only now tryiny it out and I really like the variation of glitters in the bottle. this particular one is called Gemstones. 
I applied it over Kleancolors Cafe Au Liat and it looks gorgeous.








My take - You get a good amount of Glitter on the brush when applying and since it it a clear base it dries pretty fast. Like any other glitter it does cause some trouble to come off but once you know the tricks of getting off glitter then you're good to go. 

Overall I really like it. 

Let me know what you think of this. 

XOXO

Current

Good day lovelies 

Hubby picked out this LA Colors mini in Current for me when we went shopping. 
It's a really sheer, frosty lime green colour that leans more to the yellow side. I actually applied 4 coats before it started to get opaque.  On the accent nail i used Kleancolor's Holo Yellow. I kept it on for an hour before decided to change it's appearance to a black and white french tip. 






How do you like this colour? Let me know what you think. 

XOXO

Random Nail Art - Black & White


Hi lovely ladies

So before I got in my little funk and life took over I had done a few swatches and manicures. I just never got the time to post them, so here is one. 

I'm really not sure what I was trying to do with this design but I think it came out pretty well. I guess that's why it's called random. 










Hope you like it. 

XOXO

Trendy Thursday - Stamping


Hi hi there all you lovely people. 

I know it's late but life caught up with me being unmotivated and busy, but i'm back and here to bring you a late Trendy Thursday post. 



Today's Mani: Stamping
My take: Whimsical Flower
Polish used: SinfulColors  "Easy Going" and for stamping Kleancolor "Metallic Purple"









I must confess after not polishing my nails for at least a week I truly enjoyed doing such a lovely mani this week. I forgot how much I missed stamping and I must say these Kleancolor metallic polishes are great for stamping. 

Now head over to Meera at Pajamas n Pearls and see her Trendy Thursday post.

Unmotivated, Nubs, Help

Good morning dears, 

Sorry it took me so long to do a post and I know I'm behind on my Trendy Thursday but i'll try to get it up before the end of the week. 

I have just been feeling so unmotivated (if that's a word) to do my nails. Right now I have nubs due to 2 of them breaking straight down to the skin and while doing laundry I hit one on the tub and it started to bleed so I cut it down. 

Confession: I haven't worn a manicure since maybe Wednesday. 

If you're still here then I should let you know that I'm trying to figure out how to get acquainted with Bloglovin since I have an account but it doesn't seen to be picking up my blog. If I can't rectify this problem then I may have to find an alternative solution to this or change my blog completely even though I really don't want to. If you all know what I can do please help me. 

So until I do get around to doing a post, stay safe all you lovely people. 

XOXO 

Stacy

Swatch Me - Dark Red

Hello lovelies 

I'm not really a fan of bright reds but a dark red like this I really like and surprisingly I wore this for 2 days and it did not stain like some red polishes. So you know that means I am really liking this polish. 

Kleancolor - Dark Red

This pictures are before clean up so please excuse the state of my nails. 









This was opaque in just 2 coats and went on smoothly without any trouble. 

What's your favorite go to red polish? 

XOXO

Random Nail Art - Caviar Nails

The weekend is here. 

I recently did a haul and got a box with 12 containers of nail art beads so I thought what better to do than a Caviar nail tutorial. 

Please excuse the sparse look of it I was too lazy to fill in the bald spots. 

So if you want to see how I did this look head over to my Youtube channel here and check out my short and simple tutorial.

Swatch Me - Easy Going

Hi hi 

I'm finally getting around to swatching this guy. In the bottle it looks like a light dusty pink but in real life it isn't. It looks more like a cream with a hint of pink. 







I'm not to fond of wearing white on my nails so this colour will either be used with nail art over it or as a polish for nail art. 

Do you like this polish? 

Stay tuned to see the mani I used it to create.

XOXO 

Stacy

Trendy Thursday - Happy Manicure


Good day you all and welcome to yet another Trendy Thursday. 


Today's Mani: HAPPY MANICURE :)
My take: Autism Awareness
Polish used:Jordana "White",SinfulColors "Grecian Sun", Santee "Metallic Yellow" 





When I actually started to do this mani I had no idea what to do. All I knew was that I was using one of my favourite polishes (blue). Then I remembered it was Autism Awareness month so I decided to try colour blocking. Then a light bulb went off and i had another design so I tested my theory and this is what I came up with, something really simple but it still looks good. 

As for the accent nail I just really wanted to do a swatch of the colour and was too lazy to clean it off after *shameface*. 

Now head over to Meera at Pajamas n Pearls and see her Trendy Thursday post. 


Why not join in on the fun...

Leave a comment on mines or Meera's post and we'll get back to you 
as soon as possible

Swatch Me - Heartbeat Creme

Hi Hi all you nice people in the blog world and beyond. 

if you remember from one of my earlier posts I talked about Sally Hansen, well this is the other of the pair. 
Sally Hansen Heartbeat Creme. 



This is a red that I know my aunt would love since she only wears red polishes. 





Can;t say much about this polish, it goes on well and is opaque in 2 coats.  Drys very fast as well. 

XOXO
