RED December

World Aids day is coming up, Dec. 1st, reds are my all time fave. Wet n' Wild fast dry in 221C Everybody loves Redmond is really an overlooked color. It laid nice, even, and dried fast. I'm loving this red. Almost don't want to write on my nails but I am itching to create!

Zoya Dreambox... Are you excited?

Okay my opinion is "heck yeah!". I was sort of bummed when I got my first Myglam/Ipsy bag because it didn't have polish. My second bag though came with a Nailtini (Millionaire) & I was ecstatic. No guarantees that future bags will have polish so I've been looking for a monthly polish club... none! And these make up clubs send me stuff I wouldn't pick on my own for the most part. So I am canceling my memberships as of this week. Zoya you have my business monthly now till you do away with your Dreambox deals. I love getting new polishes more than other products. Tomorrow will be my first order placement for my first Dreambox. I've shared the news to a few close to me and via Facebook so many are interested so gifting and giveaways will happen in the near future. Thank you Zoya for hearing my prayers to the polish gods.

Designing is my stress relief

To keep calm or find my inner peace after some chaos I can be found painting. For my nail art I use polish, nail paints, acrylic paints from crafts stores, and loose glitters. Nail art shouldn't be restricted, each client is different so I cater to their taste. I hate to so no so every nail trend I will try just ask. I will show you five designs done by hand. I use Kolinsky brand brushes, Loew-Cornell(inexpensive good quality), stripers, and no name Michael's value pack brushes. Animal print, line designs, dots, cartoon inspired images, and flowers are just a few designs I have mastered. Light strokes is the secret ;).

OPI You Don't Know Jacques

It's cold out so I was really wanting a warm color. Its a good opaque color to me its like a mix of gray, brown, hint of purple oh dear that probably makes no sense. But I love it. Easy application two coats.

Where I buy Color Club...

Okay there's been so many questions, well I will try to point you in the right direction, again I said try. I recently got Color Club Winter Affair Duo for $3.99. I didn't think it was a big deal till my Instagram pic was commented on and also a few direct messages. Well I got this set at TJMaxx for $3.99. Sally's has it for $8 is what I've been told, also unsure if that is potter bottle or a set. Color Club has been coming out with so many fun sets that I signed up for emails f Ron their site about deals and what nots. While doing that I then checked out sets on the site. The same duo I got us going for $10 on their site... Okay I got a deal for sure. My local suppliers are also carrying more Color Club polishes so I hope to have a go to for Color Club in the near future. At Premiere Orlando I sort of staked out at their stand both days lol. For now I will keep seeking deals at TJ Maxx & Ross. Unless otherwise stated all of my Color Clubs will come from those two stores because I can't stomach paying Sally that much for a bottle.

CND me finally!

After a very long wait I finally had the guts to do a mani sammich as some calls it. Basically you apply a color then add a fun glitter on top them layer on another coat of color and repeat to your liking. I've been dying to us Trust Fund Baby so I had to try it out. I love this subtle but fun mani. I used Cheeky its a creamy off white. Recently broke a few nails so sorry for the nubs but this is too fun to not share. It's my first sandwich polish mani but I doubt it's my last!
