The Digit-al Dozen does My Home - Inspired by a poster

Hey there!  For my second Digit-al Dozen mani inspired by my home, I picked another item that I've had for ages.  It's a poster with the "“Dance as though no one is watching you.  Sing as though no one can hear you.  Love as though you have never been hurt before.  Live as though heaven is on earth.” quote, with a different coloured flower for each part.  I've sort of outgrown the poster but I still like the quote so I keep it up.  Plus it fits perfectly on that chunk of wall so it gets to stay...

The Digit-al Dozen does My Home - Inspired by my curtains

Hey there!  It's time for a new Digit-al Dozen month...and this time we have a new member.  Michelle from Lacquer Or Leave Her is an amazing nail artist so I'm excited that she agreed to join our little group, just in time for our "My Home" theme.  This prompt could be interpreted a few ways.  I personally just looked around my living space and picked up some inspiration.  My first mani is based on some curtains my mom made for me when I moved into my first place.  I was afraid everything would end up too neutral coloured and I didn't want to live in beige-land so she made me some bright blue curtains with rainbow stripes.  Turns out I've always like rainbow-y things and stripes!  I still love them to this day.  Keep reading to see the curtains in question.

Beauty Bigbang Powder and Flakes Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Some of your might have heard that there's a new nail art kid on the block.  Beauty Bigbang is an overseas company with VERY affordable nail art products.  They approached me awhile back to see if I wanted to try any of them out.  I received a couple Chameleon Flakes, their version of Aurora Unicorn powder and three holographic/multichrome Peacock Powders.  All of them worked easily and I really like the effects they produce.  They were also nice enough to supply a coupon code (CLAWS10) to save 10% on all your orders.  Keep reading to see all the details and for the links to the products.

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Insects

Hey there!  Today the 26 Great Nail Art Ideas group is having a fun theme - insects/bugs!  It's not a particularly seasonal one for me since we've had snow on the ground for over a month so most of the bugs are long gone.  BUT I just so happened to have done an ant mani for my summer holidays this past summer and I forgot to post it so you're getting to see that today.  I should've done a new one but I've been sort of nail-lazy lately...sorry!

UberChic Beauty Collection 22 and Got Chevron? Stamping Plates

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today I have a few of the newest plates from UberChic Beauty to show you guys.  Almost two whole weeks ago (I've been slow on this one, I know) they released the latest collection AND a collaboration plate with JayLynn of @gotnail called Got Chevron?.  While I'm always the most pumped for new collections, my sister who pretty much only stamps her nails with chevrons was excited to see a whole plate of them.  I've done a couple manis with each plate and, while I do enjoy the chevron plate, the collections still have my heart.  Which are you more drawn to, the sets or the individual plates?

Bundle Monster The Nutcracker Stamping Plates and Holiday Nail Art Items

Press  Sample

Hey there!  'Tis certainly the season!  I recently received such a nice package of nail art items from Bundle Monster to review and almost all are holiday related so I thought I'd put them in one giant post.  Dearest to my stamping heart was The Nutcracker stamping plate set.  I've seen people directly ask for Nutcracker-related plates so it's awesome that Bundle monster came out with an entire set!  There was also a holiday set of rub-on decals, holographic vinyls and foil nail art stickers (which I believe are actually water decals...at least that's how I used them).  AND, for any of you who suffer from latex allergies but still want mess-free nail art, Bundle Monster has also come out with a latex-free barrier.  This is a big post so let's get to it!

Delush Polish Legion of Thrones Swatches and Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  It has been a few months since Delush Polish's last collection release but this one is well worth the wait.  This most recent collection, Legion of Thrones, is the third instalment in the tribute to our favourite Game of Thrones characters.  You can tell it's a complex show when Delush has come out with this many beautiful polishes related to it without any overlapping.  Legion of Thrones is a 7 piece set.  They all have Delush's impeccable 5-free formula but the styles are so different.  I varied collections like these.  There should be something that anyone can fall in love with.  Keep reading to hear all my thoughts.
