Are you Red-y ?

**Press sample** 

Are you red-y for wicked lips?

Kimmel London has provided 4 of their latest shades for review.  I really like the soft texture and richness in color.  Check them out.

Crumpet Nail Tarts - Blue and Silver

I've been sooo out of the game but I will be working my way back.  I joined the Crumpet Nail Tarts for the 26 Nailart Ideas Challenge.  Our first prompt is blue and silver.

I did this mani way before it was due because I knew I'd be out of town last weekend.  However, life got on the way and I didn't get to photograph it better but I think it's kinda cool that it sort of matches my sweater.

So I'm back and posting late but it was a mani that turned heads :)

Blingy and Blitzy

** press sample**

Fall is right around the corner.  It's that shiny and metallic time of the year.  Sally Hansen sure knows how to add the bling and glitz this season with new metallic shades in the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel collection and the Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Stud Kit.

I received Game of Chrome as part of this review as I totally NEEDED a gold metallic polish to add to my staple collection.  I love the Miracle Gel formula and this baby IS in fact pigmented enough to use for stamping but as with many metallic shades and my limited photography skills, it's quite difficult to get a nice shot.  But trust me when I tell you.  This is one mani I will rock for days.

The stud kit is absolutely fabulous.  It's made of three color studs, black, metallic gold and silver.  Comes with an applicator and conveniently contained in vials for easy storage. I wish it came in more colors.  I absolutely love how easy it is to store and retrieve the studs when needed by using vials instead of wheels or bigger containers.

As you know, I love studded manis so stay tuned for more.  This is only the first of many featuring this fun kit!!

Red Nails? Wine not?

**press sample ** 

Y'all Red-Y For .... 

I'm not!!!!  It's been my vacation week and honestly, for the first time in forever, I do not want to get to Friday! 
Don't judge me!!! I know I'm not thinking about the long week you've been having, I'm thinking about how much longer I wish THIS particular week was. 

So I figured .... Red Nails??? Wine Not!!! 

Being that I have this perfect summer red shade that can take me into fall and accented with Fresh Prince-ss

China Glaze Rebel Fall 2016 Collection

** press sample ** 

ahhh the sweet sound of the 90's!!!!! finally something that's right up my alley.  I am completely out of tune with "today's" jams and tv shows and the keep-up-with-the-times.  This is for us, the true 90's babies and the loving era. 

"Inspired by the 1990s but with a modern twist, the feminine pinks and pearls paired with deep purples, blues and grays capture the spirit of the decade that brought us grunge, baby doll dresses paired with Doc Martens, Kate Moss, and the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”. China Glaze puts a unique twist on the trend by utilizing some of the newest finishes in nail polish including a gorgeous matte satin in Combat Blue-ts (my personal fave) and slight color transitioning pearlescent in the aptly named Pearl Jammin’."

and one by one... this is the story all about how..... 
this pink creme got twisted upside down.  Her name is Fresh Prince-ss

 photo China Glaze Rebel_zpsffwect4y.jpg

Pearl Jammin' a blue opalescent.  Seen here in 3 coats for full coverage but top any dark color with it for fresh princess hue.

Dope Taupe - a creme nude for a neutral touch.

 photo China Glaze Rebel-2_zpshdkaml8m.jpg

Y'all Red-y For  this red with shimmery tones.  The perfect summer red to take you into the trek of Autumn. 

 photo China Glaze Rebel-13_zpsjbey3bxv.jpg

And it even stamps well....

Jagged Little Teal:  I got to be honest, I don't get the 90's reference on this one but totally get the teal hue! 

 photo China Glaze Rebel-9_zpsvt7iyvcj.jpg

Purple Fiction  is a staple Autumn color

When in "those days" with the change of season, get this baby to Combat Blue-TS and rock on with this matte cobalt blue. 

 photo China Glaze Rebel-8_zps5jqnifwb.jpg

Heroine Chic it's a nice shimmery gray with relish/purple hues shimmer

Another princess worthy shade: Don't Mesh With Me.
a gorgeous lavender shimmer seen here with and without undies for that perfect mani that can turn any day outfit into a night bling.

Teen Spirit is the shade of my next S-Club 7 concert.
(do they even play anymore?)

Hey ya!!! don't miss out on this Blue-ya
Not a fan of blue? this will turn you! 

  photo China Glaze Rebel-6_zps053mcydb.jpg

Holo At Ya Girl! is the glitter topper perfect for any of the shades of the collection.  Seen here with Purple Fiction and Pearl Jammin'

Yes, I have a right hand. No, I can't paint it + coupon code for nailplates

For those of you wondering if I have a right hand, as I always post pics of my right hand-manicures.  There's a reason for that:

But here's the latest attempt.  Using Pale to the Chief (nude) and Suzi the First Lady of Nails (green) by OPI from its most recent collection entitled Washington DC.   I call this mani, DC goes to Paris ^_^

Stamped with black on black using Ejiubas geometric plate provided for review.

Full review of plate will be forthcoming.  In the meantime, you can check it out yourself and start using a coupon code.
