Flashback flames

Hello everyone! Can you believe this year is almost over? It seems like it flew by, my son will be two soon! On Christmas, my dad and I were talking about things we remembered from my childhood.

Let me tell you about my dad, he is the strongest hardworking person in the entire world. I can go to him for anything and he is my rock when I'm feeling down. My dad has been through a lot, he was in a motorcycle accident when I was a kid, had bark from a palm tree stuck into his eye, practically cut his finger off, and just recently had surgery to remove a skin cancer spot from his arm. He loves drag racing and he used to paint cars for extra cash. He built his own race car from the ground up and just recently retired. My dad is my world.

Anyways, we were talking about when I had sprained my wrist rollerblading and he painted flames on my cast. Well when thinking of everything that's happened I thought ide make a manicure dedicated to my dad.

I did a flame manicura with julep nail therapy as my base coat, three coats of zoya-paz, a very neon orange with an insanely amazing formula, the color is so squishy and I scored this baby for 3.99 on clearance at ulta! I painted the flames with black and yellow acrylic paint, followed with finger paints new special effects in asylum. It has purple and orange and some angles of green flanked, with a coat of Orly sec n dry and a thick coat of color club top coat.

This mani was so much fun to do, I even cried when doing it! Hope you like it and tell me your thoughts! Until next time!

Hello and merry Christmas eve! I wish I had a christmas mani to show but that will be tomorrow! Today I have a julep polish for you. A few weeks ago I got my first julep box, I am "it girl" I was picked the most beautiful colors. I am very impressed with julep and can't wait for my other boxes to arrive. But for today I have Christina, a shimmery deep orange, it was very difficult to photograph the correct color of this polish. Great formula, quick dry time as well.

Are you a julep maven? Let me know if you like it! Until next time!

Sugar plum fairy

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! I can't believe that Christmas is around the corner! It went by so quick, this is my sons second Christmas and I am so excited for him.

Today I have Color Club Sugar Plum Fairy. This has to be my most favorite glitter of the set. Its a lilac base glitter PACKED with lilac and holo glitter! So much holo-y goodness! This had a wondedul formula and suprisingly it wasn't much of a top coat eatter, two coats of Orly sec n dry and I was good to go with minimal tip wear after 2 days! I layered this over a sheer pink basecoat. One coat sheer, two coats of sugar plum fairy and two coats Orly sec n dry!

Warning! Very pic heavy!

What do you think of sugar plum fairy?

Until next time!

Beyond the mistle toe

Hello everyone! Sorry for being mia! work has been super crazy and by the time I get home I am beat to shreds.

Today I have color clubs beyond the mistletoe from this years holiday glitter collection. I am absoloutley in LOVE with these! 4 out of the 6 colors have holographic glitters! Seriously, who could not love these? I will be posting color clubs over the next few days because I love them so much and they are perfect for Christmas time!

Beyons the mistletoe is a beautiful green jelly base packed with dense silver green and holographic glitters! My pictures do NOT do this one justice, my camera wont pick up its true color:( these pictures were taken in artificial light and outdoors in the shade (granted we are in Arizona and the one day I choose to take pictures its cloudy and rainy, BOO)

Do you have this set? What is your favorite glitter? Until next time!
