UberChic Beauty Vacation Mode, Garden Love, Fourth of July and Mini Plate Folder

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today might be the most summer-y post I've had this year.  UberChic Beauty recently came out with 3 new plates, Vacation Mode, Garden Love and Fourth of July, that are full of images that remind me of summer with UberChic's impeccable quality.  I adore all the plates.  I might not be a gardener or an American but I can still see myself using a bunch of the images on these plates so they're certainly not limited to those that identify as such.  And who doesn't love being in vacation mode?  I can't wait until I take a few weeks at the lake this summer.  UberChic also came out with a holder for her mini plates and I have a couple photos of that to show you too.  Keep reading for all the details.

Moonflower Polish Isla del Encanto Stamping Polish Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today I have a review of a new collection of stamping polish from Moonflower Polish that was just released a few days ago.  For the Isla de Encanto collection, Nadia is taking us to her lovely home of Puerto Rico, also known as Isla del Encanto or Island of Enchantment.  I personally don't know much about Puerto Rico but if it was the inspiration for these polishes, it must be absolutely breathtaking!  The collection is made up of 8 shimmery polishes that are formulated for stamping but, as a hint, I absolutely love Moonflower Polish for all kinds of nail art.  In todays post I've only tested their stamp-ability but I know these are going to be great for a lot more than that.  This is Nadia's third release and she's really nailed her formula with this collection.  All of these stamped with perfect ease.  To go along with the tropical theme, I chose all floral stamping images to test these polishes instead of picking randomly like I usually do. Nadia was kind enough to provide a 10% off coupon code COPYCAT10 for my readers.  She really is sweet!

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Going On Holiday

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Sorry I disappeared lately.  I've been super busy (that's always the story of summer for me) but I couldn't skip another day because I just had to post the nail art I did for 26 Great Nail Art Ideas theme this week.  The prompt is "Going On Holiday" which was the perfect excuse to put my dream holiday onto my nails using some products from Whats Up Nails.  I combined a few of their stencils with my favourite magic shifting powder, the Sunset powder (which I previously reviewed here).

Nail Crazies Unite - Fruit

Hey there!  Since yesterday was the wrap up to Digit-al Dozen's week and I didn't have it in me to write two posts in one day, I'm a tad late for this week's Nail Crazies Unite post.  And what a shame to be late for this one because its theme is truly one of my favourite things in the world...fruit!  Seriously I'm such a fruit junkie.  I'm not a huge sugar eater but when it comes to all of fruit's sweetness, I have a sweet tooth.  But it's healthy sugar...right??  I wish I could've done a huge fruit basket on my nails (though I kind of have done that before, a full two years ago), today I just have strawberries.  Yummy, yummy strawberries...

The Digit-al Dozen does Paper - Newspaper Stamping

Hey there!  It's the last Digit-al Dozen theme day this week.  For my last Paper design, I thought I could do a stamped newspaper look, using yet another one of the Moyra plates I had just bought.  I liked it well enough but then I wondered what went with newspapers and my sister suggested coffee.  So here we have my newspaper mani, with and without coffee.

The Digit-al Dozen does Paper- Paper Cranes

Hey there!  When brainstorming with things that one can do with paper, I thought of origami.  How that popped into my head, I don't know since I haven't folded a piece of paper in any sort of organized fashion since I was WAY younger.  I swear I could never follow origami instructions so I'd always mess something up along the way.  But once in awhile I could fold a paper crane properly so it's fitting that that's the only origami stamping image I have.  Here we have the fourth Digit-al Dozen paper post.  Good thing I have a whole bunch of clear stamper heads so I could do this many paper cranes for my nails!

The Digit-al Dozen does Paper - Books

Hey there!  Probably one of my favourite things involving paper is reading, especially in summer.  I think it stems from the fact that my parents would let me stay up late when I was little, as long as I was reading.  I believe I've always been a night owl so I loved (and still love) anything that lets me stay awake until all hours.  Nowadays, more often than not, it's doing my nails that keeps me up late but when I'm out at the cabin, it's still reading.  So how could I not do a book mani for The Digit-al Dozen's week of paper.  Plus I got to use another one of my new Moyra plates.  These images are so pretty!
