A Peek Into My Stash — video edition

Hello lovelies.

Today is a spur of the moment post, but I did a quick(ish) Instagram tour of my nail polish stash via Insta-stories. I thought it would be neat to save all my videos together, so those not on Instagram can see how I organize my polishes!

Check out my video below to get a look into how I keep all my nail polishes organized.

How do you organize your nail polishes? What do you think about my stash? Would you like to see more videos like this? Let me know your thoughts down in the comments below!

Review: Butter London Peel the Love PureCure Manicure System

Hello Lovelies! & Happy Saturday. Today I’m sharing a review of some exciting nail mail I recently received: Butter London’s new Peel the Love PureCure manicure system. This system is designed for be a gentler way to do Gel Nails: it applies & cures like gel, wears like gel, but is designed that when you’re ready to remove all you have to do is peel the manicure off!

Pink Rose Accent Nails (& bonus video tutorial!) or

Happy Wednesday!

Today I’m excited to share some pretty rose nails. We’ve kind of hit mid-Winter grossness so I felt like something pretty was in order to cheer me up. Plus, I don’t know about you but I’m already starting to think about Valentine’s Day nail art & roses are pretty much a Valentine’s Day must!

The products I used for the design are:

  • Base Coat: Nailtek 2
  • Top Coat: Seche Vive
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Ruby Do
  • Essence Dream On
  • Essence Perfect Match
  • Essence Sweet As Candy
  • China Glaze Dune Our Thing
  • Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art Pen in green
  • Essence The Green & the Grunge
  • Quo by ORLY Diva
  • Dotting Tool
  • Small detail brush (mine is from Born Pretty Store I believe)

You know how much I love my floral, & I thought it would be fun to include a tutorial of how I create my roses. I know everyone has there own way, & this is just the way I’ve found is best for me to freehand them (after a ton of experimenting over the years.)

Also it was SUPER difficult to try & paint roses which filming. My usual nail art is done on the couch, with the bottle between my knees so it’s been interesting learning to paint on a table while simultaneously recording haha! I’m also still trying to figure out the best angle for filming that shows off how to do the design best.

What do you think of this floral design? How do you paint your roses/ other florals? Let me know in the comments below!

Gold Flakie Glitter Placement

Happy Saturday lovelies! Hope everyone is having a wonderful first week of 2018. Today I am super excited, not only because I have these super cute flakie nails to share, but I created a tutorial for you… a VIDEO tutorial! I’ve been toying with the idea of creating videos for a while, but kind of nervous how doing it. But 2018 is all about challenging myself when it comes to this blog! & honestly, it turns out wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be! It’s actually kind of fun. ♥️

oducts used for this manicure:

  • Base Coat: Nailtek 2
  • Top Coat: Seche Vive
  • Morgan Taylor Don’t Toy With My Heart
  • Nailstuff.ca gold foil flakies
  • Dotting tool (mine is from Bundle Monster)

I always love a good glitter placement, & I thought these gold foil flakies from Nailstuff.ca paired so well with the red base of Morgan Taylor Don’t Toy With My Heart. It’s a little different trying to place flakies verses glitter from polish, but the end result looks just as gorgeous. I’ll definitely be trying this look with a few of the iridescent flakies I own.

A close up of these nails shows how cool the flakies look. I’m definitely going to be using this technique more often!

what do you think of this glitter placement design? I plan on making more tutorial videos, so let me know what you’d like to see & anything I can do to improve!

*PR SAMPLE* Some of these items were sent to me for review. However, all opinions are my own.
