Color Club Mad Batter

Good morning lovelies!Color Club Mad Batter is one of my favorite speckled polishes; that’s what I like to call this breed of glittery creme.Speckled cremes look great layered with other glitters, and really pop when layered under some stamping.This is three coats of Mad Batter […]

Swatch Sunday: Jesse’s Girl Glee

Good morning lovelies!I was looking through Rite Aid’s nail polish section and came to the realization that the brand Julie’s Girl and the brand Jesse’s Girl are the same formula polishes, just rebottled with different names??Anywho, this is Jesse’s Girl Glee, and if I remember […]

Tsum Tsum Donald Nails

Good morning lovelies!

I first happened upon Tsum Tsums on Carrie Hope Fletcher’s Youtube channel ages ago in this collab video, almost a full year ago, and now I just found out that Walmart has started carrying mini Tsum Tsums! I had a great debate on whether Donald or Dumbo was cuter, and which one needed to come live on my desk at work, and you can see who won out in the cute contest! (but a few more may sneak home with me later)
These nails started with a base of OPI Alpine Snow and Color Club  Macaroon Swoon, the stripes and Donald’s hat were done with L.A Colors Gel Daring, and I used acrylic paint for the rest.

Illegible Text w/BM-705

Good morning lovelies!This is a purely random design, while I was putting my new Mochi stamper to the test, I was using my evilest most intricate stamping plates, and one of the first I tried was for this mani; I used BM-705.I wasn’t thinking about actually […]

Nibbled nails can grow into ladyfingers

Good morning lovelies!Nothing makes me happier than a good garage/barn/yard/moving/estate sale, and finding vintage nail polish is the icing on top! I found an old Revlon Wonder Nail from the 60’s, Revlon in Wine With Everything, and a brand I’ve never seen before, Parfait Sabled Red.After a […]

Hello Cutie Cleanser Review & First Impressions

Good morning lovelies!

Today I have a quasi first impressions review on the Hello Cutie Cleanser by Glam Essentials.
I’ve used it 2-3 or three times now and wanted to give you lovelies a quick rundown, I got it in the mail about a week ago to test out and review. This has Pomegranate, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, and Green Tea extracts.
The consistency is on the watery side, and they didn’t go too heavy on the jojoba beads, so to get a good scrub out of it, you have to chase the beads around a bit. It feels very cooling and moisturizing, I was surprised to see that aloe vera is the number one ingredient! It has a press top lid that screws off, that’ll come in handy later on when I want to get at the very last drops of product. 
This is a gentle cleanser, it reminds me of Cetaphil, but with added light exfoliants. It doesn’t cut through makeup that well, it’ll take off my usual light foundation, but doesn’t do well with anything heavy. I use a makeup wipe to get off the brunt of my makeup, then finish off with the cleanser. 
I also filmed a quick video showing off the product~ The company also gave me this coupon code: GETGLAM9 It’s good for 20% on Amazon.

Pop by again tomorrow morning!

Speckled Floral with BM-724

Good morning lovelies!I was playing around with my Bundle Monster Mochi stamper, and I basically just looked for the stamping image with the thinnest lines I could find, because I wanted to really put it to the test. It stamped really well, and picked up […]

My tips for growing out your “tips”

Good morning lovelies!I’ve had dozens of cashiers, co-workers, and even random customers in the same checkout line, ask if I do my nails myself, (or alternately if they’re Jamberries but I won’t even get into that), then “Are those your real nails?”, and finally “How […]

Geeks Unite Nails with BM-602

Good morning lovelies!

This plate is the main reason I purchased this particular Bundle Monster set, the set has a ton of awesome images, but this one was definitely the clincher.
These nails started with a base of Wet n Wild Garnet! My Heel Broke, and I stamped the geekiness with OPI Alpine Snow and BM-602. I used some old shiny topcoat, can’t remember what brand off the top of my head, but nothing special.

The plate also has some cute comic book images, a pair of Harry Potter-esque glasses, and a random emoji? Not sure how that got included in this mix.

One Punch Man Nails

Good morning lovelies!I finished watching One Punch Man a couple weeks ago, and usually I’m not much for action flicks, but the dead pan humor of the show got me hooked.These nails showcase the main character Saitama, and they were directly inspired by this image. The gloved […]
