Milani Baked Blush in Terra Sole

I received my free Milani baked blush in the shade Terra Sole today in the mail from the Facebook giveaway mentioned here! I was quite surprised to receive it so quickly, being that the email stated that I would be receiving the item in 4-6 weeks.

The shade is a bronzy peach that seems like it will be great for any time of the year! I don't normally use blush, being that my cheeks usually have a slight redness to them but this is a lovely color and I am excited to use it! You all know I already love their nail polishes so I am just as excited to try out any item from this company.

Don't forget to "LIKE" the Milani Facebook Page and look out for future promos from this awesome brand!

Doesn't this mani remind you of a Glow-in-the-Dark Paint rave party? I should have added a glow-in-the-dark top coat on this mani from the ones I hauled here!

Tissue Paper Manicure

I was feeling a little creative the other day and decided to try something new! Now, I don't know if anyone else has ever done this but it popped into my head to use tissue paper on my accent nail!

I painted every nail except the accent nail in 2 coats of China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le. Then, I painted the accent nail in a coat of Confetti Wedding White and let it dry almost completely.

Next, I cut tiny pieces of tissue paper. I used a baby blue tissue paper and a tan with hexagonal silver glitter tissue paper.

Then, I applied a coat of Seche Vite on the accent nail and began to layer the tissue paper onto the nail, trying to get it as flat and smooth onto the nail as possibly. Finally, I applied a coat of Seche Vite over all my nails and let dry!

Guest Nails: Bianca

The above picture is a design I did on my cousin Bianca's nails for a wedding she attended this weekend.

I am not sure of the name of the base color because it was a color that she brought along but I believe the brand is NK. I then applied the design with a white and a silver nail art polish by L.A Colors, plus a clear rhinestone on the ring finger and the index finger. Bianca then added Milani Hi-Res between the white and the silver with a nail art brush!

Guy Meets Gal-veston

This is OPI Guy Meets Gal-veston from the Texas Collection. It is a red-orange with a slight pink tinted jelly based nail polish. I applied 4 coats and there is still a very visible nail line. However, this nail polish is super fun and really stands out!

I used Confetti Wedding White and Revlon Gold Coin to make the design on the accent nail!

The Tree of Life

Base Color: Love & Beauty Mint
Stamping Image: BM-225
Stamp Color: Confetti Wedding White

Hey all! I attended another wedding over the weekend and this was the manicure I have been wearing since Friday. This has to be one of my favorite manicures ever! I absolutely love the base color and the stamping pattern seemed like the perfect design to go with it.

NYX Round Case Lipsticks: Summer Love and Doll

 Left: NYX Summer Love
 Right: NYX Doll

I have been seriously loving NYX Round Case lipsticks! The two that I recently purchased were Summer Love and Doll. Summer Love is definitely not something I can wear by itself because it is way too light for my skin tone. Doll, on the other hand, is AMAZING! I love love love the color against my skin and I will definitely be wearing Doll throughout the summer months.

Summer Love

Spiraling Out of Control

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Today's manicure consists of two coats of Ulta The Jungle Look. Then I stamped the design from the Bundle Monster Plate BM-224 using Sally Hansen Black Out and Confetti Wedding White. I am really enjoying this design and I don't want to take it off!

Leopard Print (again?!)

OK, OK. So you are going to say, "Leopard print, again?! What is wrong with this girl?"

Well, I ordered the 25 piece Bundle Monster plate set and received it last week. I tried out a few of the designs over the weekend but I didn't take any pictures because: 1) I forgot and 2) I wasn't too happy with my color choices!

So that brings us to my current manicure. I wanted to do something simple and quick that I couldn't really mess up too much!

I applied two coats of Confetti Wedding White and then stamped the leopard print design from plate BM-221 with Revlon Gold Coin.
