Pinky’s Up

Happy Friday Eve ladies…

Today I have a mani in honor of the last day of Breast Cancer Awareness month…. I honor this awareness all year round…. Today my mani is inspired by Lakeisha over at http://www.refinedandpolished.com, I couldn’t possibly stop adoring her design so I attempt to flatter her by doing a rendition of it. For a look at her design go here http://www.refinedandpolished.com/breast-cancer-awareness-dots-stripes/.

For mine I used 3 different pink polishes, used a nail art brush for the lines then a dotting tool for the dots.

Ladies please don’t allow Breast Cancer Awareness to fall by the waste side, stay abreast of the conditions of your breasts… they’re precious cargo.
The pink polish I used is an untried polish I got from the Dollar General. It’s only $1 and two coats seals a solid finish; this pink is called “Jenny’s Pout”.

P.I.N.K

Hiiiii and HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Boy do I feel like this week took the snail route to get here!!

Ending this week I decided to try something new. I call myself teaching myself how to do acrylic nails but on a dummy hand, I believe I have got the technique down.

Mr. Nailmattic & I will be out & about this weekend and I wanted my nails to be nice. I decided to put on some full cover oval nails by Kiss. I am really smitten with the results.

I don’t know tho, how they’ll last cause I’m kinda tough with my hands…
Getting into the members of this mani I used different shades of pink as an ode to breast cancer awareness. The main one used is by Essence from the Hugs & Kisses collection, it’s called “Sugar Baby Love”. The glitter I used is one I got from Rue 21 named Graffiti Top Coat, model named “Dope”.

The acronym I came up with for PINK is just a reminder to you ladies that it’s important that you are aware of breast cancer, please stay abreast of the health of your breast: Protection Is Nonstop Knowledge.

Sparkle on girl*

Hi all!!

I’m pressed for time, kinda busy day ahead of me…
So today’s mani is brought to you by L’oreal, Rimmel & NYC. For my base color I used Rimmel’s 60 second polish called “Cupcake Pink”, it’s a sheer pink that’s very soft; not my normal purchase I know I’m a cream girl. This is 2 coats of it at first. On to the glitz of things, I topped off the cupcake with some glitter; who doesn’t like sprinkles on their cupcake :).

For the pink glitter I used NYC’s “Pink Bling” which features pink and silver fine glitter. Secondly I used L’oreal’s magic top coat called “the sparklicious”. It has black octagon & silver shaped glitters w/ silver tinsel glitters.

My talons bid you a sparkly day****

Introducing the Great Bellini Cerise

Hi lacquer lovelies & happy hump day!!

Today I’m sharing with you my first time doing this nail design technique via Cutepolish YouTube channel, I saw the video so long ago. This technique is so non-complex and features the use of a basic household item– a floss stick.

Yes you read that right, with the use of a floss stick you can create a ident design on your nails using two colors. I believe the key is to use the lighter color polish as the base color so that the darker is more apparent on the surface. For my mani I used two untried polishes by Bettina. My base color is called Bellini, it’s another rose/blush color like my previous post using “Silk”.

Then I used Cerise which is a shade above burgundy, still in the pink position. I simply painted the floss with Cerise enough to coat the floss, then I kinda like rolled the floss onto my nail from side to side. I only rolled it once for each line.

Apply top coat and presto you’re done!! You should give it a go….it’s magical.

Silk Demolition

Happy Monday!!

Why does that sound like an oxymoron lol….

Today I’m wearing a polish I picked up over the weekend from Sephora, it is another one from their Formula X line; this one is called Demolition. It is girly girl to me because of its pink and glitters an the splash of aqua in it, it’s amazing in person I hope I can achieve some justice to you all of it via pics.

These polish will run you $12.50 in store and online (plus shipping of course). I’ve paired this polish up with Bettina’s polish named “Silk”, it’s a soft pink polish that resembles even a rose pink color if you don’t mind the comparison. They’re both untried polishes so I think these two paired up for a perfectly for their first date, lol.
