Weekend getaway: Bahamas

I noticed it's been a while since my last post, I slowly got sucked into Instagram and the ease to post got addictive.  In case we're not connected, follow me @BSNFun let me know in a comment you're there and I'll be sure to follow back :) 

So the impending end of winter (yes, last winter) was coming and my friend started talking about getting away for a nice long weekend, we had both been working really hard so I quickly agreed, except that I thought she meant let's go away far away to like, Connecticut, or upstate New York (we're in NYC).... she quickly said "noon, I mean somewhere south and warm"....  ummm...ok... Georgia?? Florida??

After much deliberation we ended up in Bahamas.  All inclusive resort on the bay side on Paradise Island for a weekend. 

The evening view 

I'm a huge fan of nightly skylines 

This sounds like a pretty cool job

and finally the soooo very desired winter tropical drinks

 my sight was surely locked on something, or someone, as refreshing as my drink

We of course visited THE Atlantis

Beautiful crystal sculpture 


As always, it's a pleasure to see different places, unfortunately, too short  but a few  days is better than none at all.  

Until next time Bahamas.

Soooo what have you been up to???

OPI California Dream Collection

**press sample**

Seeing other places has got to be one sweet pleasure.  How many of you have seen all 52 States??

What a great accomplishment that must be.

OPI having such a national and global market must have to really have seen it all.  They're latest collection, California Dreamin' encompasses just that! a new place, a new destination, a new dream!
For us, nail polish lover, a new lacquer shade ^_^

I picked a couple of my faves and here they are in hue order (lightest to darkest) featuring some nail art.

  • Feeling Frisco
  • Barking up the Wrong Sequoia 
  • Time for a Napa
  • Malibu Pier Pressure
  • Santa Monica Beach Peach
  • To The Mouse House We Go (with Feeling Fresco undies for accent nail)

I love the creativity of these names.  Whoever has that job ROCKS!!!

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....
(seen with Fresh Prince-ss)

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

 photo China Glaze Rebel-7_zpsu50ilrqj.jpg

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.

Not a fan of blue? this will turn you!
