Spam Sunday!! Total and Utter Randomness Edition

Hi loves!!

  For this edition of Sunday Spam I have some totally random swatches. The actual plan for Spam Sundays is to have some sort of Theme but for this first one there were a few colors I needed to swatch or wanted to re- swatch. Spam Sundays are really fun to work on so I'm really happy last Sunday's Post had such a positive response. 

  So like I said, this week is going to be a little bit all over the place but I hope you guys enjoy the spam non the less :D....
To see some swatch spam just keep on readin'

Pink Wednesday!! My Best Friend's Wedding Series Edition

Happy Pink Wednesday!!

  Today I have a special edition of Pink Wednesday for you guys. I was feeling "inspired" by one of my previous designs but I tweaked it and improved on it and now this is one of my favorite designs ever.
[HERE] You can see the original look that inspired this version. I just love it soo much! So what I did for this version: I inverted the color of the dots and the bow  and added rhinestones to the bows for a little flash and bling. As my base color I used one of my favorite Pinks ever Sinful's Forget Now. . Then for some extra sparkle I added a top coat of INM Northern Lights. Dots plate: BM19, Bow Plate: Konad M59.

Here is a swatch of the amazing Forget Now. It's a lovely Fuchsia Pink glassfleck shimmer. For this mani I used Three thin coats of color. 
For the next few designs I'm going to be doing some more traditional bridal designs. I have a few very soft and delicate ideas floating around in my head that should turn out pretty (I hope). 

What is on your tips today?

Borghese Stellare Note

Speechless...
Teal Flashes
Teal Flashes
Purple Flashes
This one shows both Teal and Purple flashing.
  Stellare Note is a blackened Teal/ Purple duochrome. The duochrome effect is very subtle but very beautiful. I am absolutely in love with this polish. In the bottle it kinda looks like an oil slick maybe? In dim lighting it looks like a pearly Black. It's dark, sexy and unique. My camera had a hard time capturing the different color changes in this polish but it is absolutely amazing. The formula is excellent and so is the brush. This polish glides on buttery smooth and has great pigmentation. For this mani Two coats of Stellare Note were used. This is a great take on a "Black" polish for those of you who like dark nails but refuse to wear Black polish :)

Thanks for Stopping by :)
