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...

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?

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.

GlaMER Lips Organic Lip Scrub and Lip Balm Review

Hello dolls, this season seems to be about 90's colors and matte lips and nothing can ruin a perfect lip more than chapped lips. So today I want to share with you my hands down favorite lip products I've had the pleasure of trying, GlaMER Lips Organic Lip Care and Lip Balm.
 GlaMer Lips was created by Mercedes Porredon aka Makeup by Mer, a makeup artist who came up with a products that doesn't just make her clients look good, but is also good for them, and boy is it good. So let's get into what's in the burlap bag.
Inside we have a card explaining more about the lip scrub; ingredients, features, the difference between Natural and Organic and a little background on Mer. We also have Organic lip scrub in Champagne, GlaMER lips in Cocoa Mint and a wooden spatula.
 Since this lip scrub comes in a pot, it comes with a little spatula so you can choose if you want to us the spatula or your finger and it also comes in handy when it comes to stirring the scrub because let's be honest stirring our lip scrubs with our fingers isn't very neat if you have normal sized fingers. So here's how it works...

First we have my not so smooth and matte lipstick ready lips.
Next like most scrubs you just have to rub on your lips for a minute in a gentle rubbing motion.

Lastly, either lick(yes it's edible and oh so yummy) or wipe off your lips and add some GlaMER lips (or your favorite lip balm).

My final thoughts are where has this been my whole life? I've been using Elf's lip scrub but this had my lips feeling smooth and lipstick ready for days. Not only did it make my lips look and feel great it's edible! So that is a big win for me because if it boast about smelling yummy it should taste yummy and not just be a big tease.These products are pretty for those cool weather lips and this is also some great to add in a little gift basket, who doesn't love smooth lips?

The Organic lip scrub retails for $22.85 and comes in Coconut, Lemon, and Bubblegum
The Natural lip scrub retails fo $10.00 and comes in Brown Sugar/Honey, Cinnamon(plumper), Lemon, Bubble Gum, Champagne, and Coconut.
GlaMer Lips retails for $4.00 and comes in Cocoa Mint, Lavender Vanilla, and Cherry.
And for this season they have a Pumpkin Spice lip scrub for $11.00.
You can purchase these lip products on Mer's Etsy shop.

GlaMER Lips are now Certified by PETA as Animal Cruelty and all scrubs with the exception on Brown Sugar/Honey are Vegan!

So what is your go to lip products? Are you a fan of lip scrubs? If so what is your favorite? Let me know.
