Giveaway! Glory Eye Bright Gel by Yalmeh

Hello Lovelies!
I have a review/giveaway for you lovelies today! I was sent the Glory Eye Bright Gel by Yalmeh to review a couple days ago and wanted to tell you what I think of it! It comes in a pretty blue tube inside a cute cardboard box. When I saw that it was a gel I was expecting a really thick consistency but it has a almost watery jelly feel to it. It soaks into my skin very nicely and I think it really does tighten up the skin! It’s nice and moisturizing as well which is a plus. There’s only one mandatory entry for the contest, and it’s I need your email so I can contact you if you win!

Sinful Colors Starry Night swatches

Hello Lovelies!

I feel like I’ve been swatching an awful lot lately instead of my usual nail art fare, but I felt this polish justified a post of it’s own!
Walgreens is having a 99 cent sale on Sinful Colors polishes, and I actually only had one beforehand, so I went in and snagged a couple!

This is three coats of Sinful Colors Starry Night with topcoat! This is a rather strange polish, it’s a black jelly with micro holo glitter, but it also has random little gold shards throughout the bottle, but they’re pretty few and far between so it’s hard to fish them out onto the nail. This is the thickest jelly I’ve ever encountered, not in a bad way, but it was a little fiddly in application.

And here’s a artistic shot to fully show off the sparkly-ness of these nails!

Thanks for reading!

DIY Nail Polish Rack

Hello Lovelies!

I’ve been re-arranging my polishes over and over in different ways these past couple weeks, but I was never able to get them displayed in a way that was easy to get to and pretty at the same time.
After a ton of searching around the web, I found this nifty tutorial on how to make a nail polish rack out of foam boards!

I got three foam boards from wal-mart at two bucks a piece, and I already had some hot glue sticks lying around from my last round of crafting, so this was pretty easy to put together! I added the lace along the shelves as a last minute afterthought, I thought it made the rack look a bit more polished, (haha see what I did there?).


I was able to fit over 200 polishes in there, but I made seven shelves instead of six, and mine aren’t lined up quite as prettily as in the video. Here’s the video below so you can see how it’s done:
