Movember Manicure

Hello everyone. It has been a long absence but I have a fun manicure to share with you. I was sent some adorable mustache charms from KKcenterHk which were perfect for the fun Movember theme that so many guys take part in each November.

I'm in love with these charms! They have great color, shape and are super strong. Each charm is slightly arched, which allowed it to lay pretty flat on my nails, which was a nice change from nail charms I've reviewed before. I wanted to keep this manicure simple so the mustache would get all the attention. I used my favorite gold from Orly, Glitz & Glamour along with Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

What do you think? What colors would you have paired with the mustache? Do you think this manicure is too plain?

Two Tone Hearts and a House

Oooo what a busy month July has turned out to be. My boyfriend and I bought a house! It is our first home and we are beyond excited. I had no idea how involved and confusing housing buying was. So between all the craziness this blog has taken a backseat, again. *sad face* We are three weeks away from moving in, and already have our apartment half way packed. So I promise to do my best in painting my nails and keeping everyone updated about the house.

Now, to the nails. My nails have actually been unpainted for the last three days. It feels good to finally make them pretty again. However, I was lacking a little inspiration so I copycat-ed my nail design from Polish You Pretty.

Fun and easy, with a little vintage feel. I love it!

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July to everyone! I have a fun American flag nail design to share with you.

I thought this design would be easy, but the red and white stripes gave me some trouble and they aren't as straight as I had hoped. Maybe it's a waving American flag? ;)

I'm gonna leave you with this awesome +Pepsi display I saw at the store. Nothing says America better than an awesome Pepsi product display!

Have a fun and safe 4th everyone!

A Flower Kind of Day

Hello all! I've been so in love with doing flower nail art lately. I think its the hot weather, it's been in the 100's here, and the overall happy thoughts summer brings. So here is a cute flower manicure I wore over the weekend.

Taa-da! Happy flowers and tiny polka dots. I got lots of compliments on this manicure, which always makes me feel great. I also switched up the polka dots with smaller ones, I usually do bigger dots, and I really like the outcome.

Graceful Blue Bird Nail Art Decoration

Today I have a manicure to share with you inspired by the pretty blue bird nail art decoration sent to me by KKCenterHK. I'm also going to lump this manicure in with the untried challenge I'm slowly tackling.

Here are the pretty nail art decorations I chose to review. I love them. The detail is perfect and are exactly like they are pictured on the website.

Taking the nail art out of the package and observing the white paper backing, I thought these decorations might be self adhesive. Scratching a little at the back I pulled off some of the bird pattern of one, and quickly discovered they are not self adhesive. Luckily the small scratch was hidden by my white base polish.

I knew right away I wanted to use this nail decoration for my accent nail. I looked over my blues and thought the gorgeous Cerulean by LVX would be a perfect pairing! Cerulean just happened to be an untried, and qualified as a "cool" color, which made this manicure a double win for me. To jazz it up a little I used stripping tape along with my go to Snow Me White from Sinful Colors to do stripes with Cerulean. I really like the way this came out.

From above I LOVE the nail art decoration. But from the side, this manicure makes me sad. Its such a huge oval bubble on my nail that I played with it constantly, until I just popped it off. As pretty as these oval nail decorations are, for me they are just too big to be used in my nail art. However, I plan on keeping these adorable nail decorations and applying them to something else. (I'm just not sure what)

What do you think of this manicure? Do you think these blue bird nail decorations are too big? Is there such a thing as too big when it comes to nail art? Do you own any LVX polishes?

Circle Glitter from KKCenterHK

A few weeks back I was very excited to receive an email from KKCenterHK. They asked if I would be interested in reviewing some of their products. I of course said yes and could not wait for the items to arrive to do my first real review.

I picked KKCenterHK's pretty sky blue circle glitter. This glitter is made of plastic and is cut into 2.55mm circles. The light blue colors is vibrant and reflects light beautifully. The jar holds hundreds of these beautiful circle glitters pieces.

Of course I wanted to use my new glitter on my nails so this is the nail design I came up with.

Starting with white nail polish I then added the circle glitter to my nails in a simple polka dot pattern. Then painted pretty blue flowers as accents to the the circle glitter. 

The glitter from KKCenterHK is vibrant, easy to use and exactly what was pictured on their website. KKCenterHK is overseas but was able to ship the items quickly. The glitter was well packaged, so it arrived safely. The only thing I would change about this glitter is that I wish it was a little smaller. My nails are on the smaller side and I think with smaller glitter I would be able to do a more detailed designs with the circle glitter. Any girl with wider or longer nails should have no problem with this size of this glitter.
