Double Appliqués - Incoco + Cover Girl

I picked up a Covergirl set that had Hunger Games nail strips and a polish. I wasn't sure at first how I wanted to wear the strips since the background of them are clear. Then I found a misplaced set of Incoco strips I had. Since they were kind of plain, and we all know how allergic I am to plain manis, I thought I'd see how the two appliqués looked together!

Sammydress Review - Snowflake Pattern Leggings

I was contacted by recently to do a review. I have heard of them before, but this was my first time both working with them and trying any of their products.

I have heard some controversy about this company, but decided to try them out for myself so I have first-hand knowledge.

I figured clothing is kind of in the beauty category, so it is a theme that would loosely fit here.

The item I picked from them to review was this pair of leggings. There isn't an exact size for them on the website, just measurements, but I would say they are definitely a size small in USA sizes.

My first impression was that these are really cute! I love the color and pattern, and they were nice and soft!

KKCenterHk Review - Star Studs

I love cute, shaped nail decor. So these star studs from KKCenterHk are right up my alley!

Twinsie Tuesday - Tip Nail Art

For today's mani, I did a simple black, somewhat deep but not too deep, French tip, using Broadway Black Out (perfectly opaque in one coat and only $1!!), then added some gold leaf on top.

Irish Flag Inspired Zebra Print - Bestie Twin Nails with Peace Love & Polish

While I was trying to come up with some design ideas for this year, I thought to do zebra print on a green, white, and orange gradient inspired by Ireland's flag. Being that Heather of Peace Love & Polish is the queen of zebra print, I had to ask her to do twin nails with me!

Irish Flag Inspired Leopard Print

Here's my first of three St. Patrick's Day designs for this year! Woohoo! I was afraid I wasn't going to have time to do any, but was able to squeeze some in thankfully. ^.^

Maybelline - Mystic Green

Well, I was going to do some nail art over this polish so I had more to present today than just a plain ole swatch, but as soon as I put this on, I didn't have the heart to cover it up with anything!

Pastels and Grey Skittles - Untriedicure #4

As the title of this post implies, I have another mani today using all polishes that are previously untried for me.

I couldn't decide what I wanted to create with these, so I just went with some skittles!

Born Pretty Store Review - Rainbow Rose Decals

Born Pretty Store sent me some really gorgeous water decals to try out. I picked the rainbow rose pattern because I am a sucker for rainbows!

I decided to try them first over Julep Margaret to see how opaque they were.

Twinsie Tuesday - Go-to Polish

I have lots of pictures of this mani today. Some (the lighter ones) are outdoor shots, and some are in my lightbox. I just couldn't decided which ones I liked the most, so I included them all! ^.^

The theme for today is to use your go-to polish. For me, that's some sort of neutral/nude shade. But instead of picking just one, I decided an ombre was in order!

Barielle Spring Vibrants Collection 2014

Today I bring you the second half of Barielle's new Spring polish line. These six are called the Spring Vibrants. I showed you the Spring Velvets last week, you can see those again here.

As always, I'll be showing these without topcoat so you can see the finish alone.

CATS Logo Mani

A couple weeks ago on IG, a bunch of us did a tribute to jamylyn_nails by recreating one of her manis. Being that CATS is one of my favorite, if not my definite favorite musical, I knew I had to recreate Jamy's CATS logo mani as my contribution!

Twinsie Tuesday - Grunge Nails

For this mani, I started out with China Glaze Wicked Style as the bottom layer, added Mingle with Kringle, and finished it off with Zoya Louise. Then just went to town with a brush and some acetone to remove bits here and there.

Minnie Mouse Peel-able Polishes

I found these polishes at Walmart. They were only a few dollars a piece, but they were so cute I wanted to get them and try them out! I'm not necessarily a huge Minnie Mouse fan, but I love novelty polishes!

I did a Minnie mani using all of the polishes. Over yellow, the fuchsia, pink, and red all end up looking really similar unfortunately! But I still think it turned out pretty cute! ^.^
