You Look Like a Chipmunk

Where in the world have I been?! So the past couple of weeks I have been in the worst pain ever, I am 27 years old and my wisdom teeth wanted to make a grand entrance and I thought I was dieing. I wanted to tie string on my teeth and tie them to a car and have my husband speed away, not caring if he would break my jaw in the process. Needless to say I was able to get an appointment with my dentist to get them yanked out. So for the past 3 weeks I've been getting them yanked out, 2 weeks ago my bottom 2 and 4 days before the makeup show my top 2, nice timing right? Luckily I didn't look like chipmunk at the makeup show, that would have sucked people would have probably confused me as a creep show model.

So now that you know what's been going on with me, let me let you know what's going to start happening. I am a bit behind with my post needless to say but I'm excited to catch up. I have some beautiful Kbshimmers, Stardust, Zoya's, and China Glazes to show you. I also am starting up my youtube channel! Yay! I'm currently working on my Makeup Show video and I also have a video review on the Kbshimmers which I'm very excited about.

So stay tuned!! With that here is a lovely picture of my swollen cheeks!!

A is for Angles

I have joined a A-Z nail art challenge that runs for 26 weeks, where we post on Thursdays with a A-Z theme and today's theme is Angles for A. As we all know I am horrible at challenges, I think I only finished one and it was 3 days long... *sigh* so my goal is to see this through and to work on my nail art.

So for today's challenge I give you my Angles.
For this challenge I used the Halloween Sinfulcolors that I reviewed, if you wanna check the review check it out here, I used Happy Endings as my base coat, Splatter Spell for the glitters, and Sally Hanse's Night Fright Fast Dri and Straight Vinyls for the lines. All my lines are at an angle, I won't lie after the ring finger and middle finger I wanted to scream because the single vinyls didn't want to lay straight, I think next time I'm going to get the ones that are as big as the finger nail that you lay down.
The first one I was thinking this is easy...
In the end the vinyls were easy to use then trying to make straight lines myself.
I figured I'd do something funky-ish with my thumb.

At the end of the day I really liked how they turned out and I really like the vinyls. My mom picked them up from a girl at a flee market, I hope she expanse her designs because not having to wait for it in the mail would be heaven.
So what do you think of these angles?

If you liked these angles, or didn't make sure to check out these other amazing angle and some angel mani's from these awesome girls!!

Till we get to B for Bold...

SinfulColors Tricked Out Top Coats Review

Press Samples

With Halloween literally right around the corner, I want to share with you the SinfulColors Tricked Out Top Coats.

First up is Pumpkin Spice.
Pumpkin Spice is described as a twinkling fall orange, this is full of orange and gold glitters in a clear base.
Next we have Cauldron Couture.
Cauldron Couture is described as a wickedly glittery emerald, this topper is full of different size black glitters and green(emerald) shard glitters in a clear base. I paired this topper with Cloud 9 which is also a Halloween favorite which is described as a pumpkin perfect orange.
Now we have Splatter Spell.
Splatter Spell is described as a glided black flecks. This topper is full of different size black glitters and shards of gold in a clear base. I paired this with Happy Ending.
The last topper I have is Mystery Moonshine.
Mystery Moonshine is described as a multi-colored confetti. This is full of orange, purple and green glitter shards. I paired this with another Halloween favorite Courtney Orange which is described as a opalescent tangerine.
I would have a Glow In The Dark polish to share with you if I didn't meet it's demise in the hands of a little Scooby-Doo who thought it was the coolest thing because the bottle glowed in the dark. Funny story he told me he didn't know what happened to it... until I put him to bed and turn off the lights and what do you know... his floor and some of his wall is glowing.

These polishes are $1.99 each and are exclusively at Walgreens & Target stores in October 2014.I tried to find a replacement for Glow In the Dark but I still haven't seen them in my little town.

So what do you think about these Halloween themed top coats and colors? Any idea what you are putting on your nails this Halloween?

*These polishes were sent for review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

3 Kbshimmer Fall Polishes Review

Press Samples

Hello darlings, today I have some fall polishes from Kbshimmer to share with you! Now a little back story, Proud Peacock was the first Kbshimmer polish I bought, that polish will always have a place in my heart. If you want to see where I started and how far I believe I've grown check out this post here, we have to start somewhere. Anyways now onto the 3 fall Kbshimmers!!
First up we have Hugs and Wishes.
Hugs and Wishes is a lavender creme, this 2 coater seems to be an odd ball in the fall theme but at the same time it fits and it's a beautiful color and it fits, it's like who put the raisins in the stuffing ( hey now, don't knock it till you've tried my aunts stuffing!).
Speaking of raisnes we have A Raisin To Live.
 A Raisin To Live is a deep burgundy ox blood jelly with holographic sparkle. This is a 2-3 coater that's sparkly but at the same time vampy, a polish after my heart.
 Last but not least we have Up & Cunning.
Up & Cunning is a stunning show stopping deep teal almost forest green holographic polish. This is a 2-3 coater that makes me remember why I love holographic polishes so much.
 And of course you can't have a holographic polish without so sun shots.
This has a punch of holographic sparkles that look amazing in the sun.

There are 10 polishes in the collection so make sure you check out the other 7 amazing polishes!! I have my eye on Stonewashed and Flannel Surfing.

These are on sale now on Kbshimmer for Glitters and Holographic polishes $8.75 and Creme polishes $7.50.

To stay in the know and to find out about the up and coming collections make sure to check out Kbshimmers:

So what do you think of these polishes? Any favorites out of this collection? Let me know.
