#NailArtSociety Habit Denim Blues Kit

(**Press Sample**)
Happy Humpday!!! 

  Today's post features the Nail Art Society kit for April (I believe). This adorable set was all about the color DENIM haha. The featured brand is a new one to me, Habit. The blurb on the Habit site states: "Habit gives you the gorgeous nail color you crave AND strengthens your nails, all without the harmful chemicals found in other nail polish brands. Habit naturally strengthens nails with Myrrh extract. Myrrh reinforces nails to give them more flexibility without the brittleness you get from chemical nail hardeners. Myrrh is also anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Habit is free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) and Camphor, and is made without animal testing. Habit is packaged as sustainably as possible. We are the only nail polish brand made with a bamboo overcap. It adds to the beauty of our nail polish and means that we use less plastic. Habit is packaged in FSC Certified paperboard produced through sustainable forestry."

 The Habit shade I got with my kit is the beautiful Belle Epoque. This is a creamy shade of clean Periwinkle Blue. The formula was absolute perfection. I was actually surprised at how opaque, but fluid this color was. I used Two easy coats to achieve a perfect, glassy smooth look. 
 This kit also comes with cute silver and gold water decals in cute zipper designs. Even though the packaging on the zippers calls them stickers, they are certainly NOT stickers, but water decals. I like that they are decals because with water decals you get a much cleaner, cooler effect that with stickers. I love how the zippers look so perfectly vibrant against the light blue base. 
 I finished off my look by accenting with some light yellow gems placed randomly on my nails. I sealed the whole look off with a generous coat of Seche Vite. I managed to wear this look for about Four days, when time came to remove, they were still holding strong and looked fairly flawless. 

Have you guys heard/ tried Habit nail color? I really love the packaging!

#NailArtSociety The Great Glitzy (Silver) Nail Art Look

(**Press Sample**)
Happy Tuesday! 

  Today I want to share this super flashy look I did using Nail Art Society's "The Great Glitzy (Silver)" set. For those of you who may not be familiar with Nail Art Society, they are a monthly subscription box. Every month they provide you with a "curated" kit for a themed nail art look. It also looks like you can shop the sets individually without having to sign up for the monthly subscription. It is such a neat concept. There is such a wide range of kits for all different styles.
 The set featured here is "The Great Glitzy" in Silver, also comes in gold. This set is all about flash, bling, sparkle and extravagance. The featured polish is by Floss Gloss Dimepiece (lololol). The kit also includes a baggie of gems  and other apliques, as well as a small jar of huge Silver prismatic loose glitter. For this look I chose to play with the gems instead of the hexes.

 I started with a sheer pink base using O.P.I Be Magentale because I wanted to do an exaggerated sparkling "french gradient". And also because my nails are hella stained and naked just would not have looked good. Using a piece of cosmetic wedge I dabbed on Floss Gloss Dimepiece just on the tips of my nails. This polish is SOOO sparkly and pretty and DENSE, it is a great thing. The particles are all holographic and on the smaller side, it twinkles a lot. 
  I worked on each nail individually since I was suing nail glue to apply the stones. There was absolutely no rhyme or reason behind the application of the decorations. I wanted it to look like I covered my nails in glue and dipped them in a vat of sparkling stuff. I think I definitely achieved my goal. I used O.P.I nail glue to keep the stones on my nails. I top coated with KBShimmer Clearly on Top. I am happy to report that I wore these for about Four days and didn't lose a single stone. 

 The Great Glitzy set is available from Nail Art Society for $11.95. It also comes in a Golden version, which is equally awesome. I am in LOOOVE with Floss Gloss polishes and their hipster vibe ;D. The bottles are just adorable. 

 Speaking of hipster... This is what I've been up to lately... When I am happy, sad, tired, sore... I spin. I needed something physical to channel some energy to and hooping became that thing. As you guys know I struggled with my health for a long time... Now things are so much better so I have to work on getting my body back in shape again. Hooping is the best physical activity I've ever picked up. It is so much fun :D. 


 Anyways, yeah.. Painting and spinning <3 guys="" nbsp="" p="" see="" soon="" you="">
