 So a big thank you to:

So onto the Award:
Now I have to tell you guys 10 facts about me :) Here we go..

1. I'm originally from Puerto Rico but have lived in Florida since 2001.
2. I have been skydiving once. It was so liberating.
I'm so ladylike hahaha!
3. I'm 24 years old and I have NEVER EVER seen snow. Not even fake snow! lol
4. I used to be a chronic nail bitter. Like BAD! I had the ugliest hands ever.

Christina Ricci walks MET Red Carpet in Zac Posen and O.P.I

Hello lovelies,

  Just a quick post for today. I can't stay away guys!!! While the hubby is at work I need something to do.  I loove Christina Ricci and just had to share this little release.

May 3, 2011 – Christina Ricci walked the red carpet in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art last evening for the annualCostume Institute Gala in a custom creation by Zac Posen. Ricci’s stunning silhouette was complemented by another custom element – her OPI-lacquered nails. Ricci’s manicure was created by mixing Samoan Sand and I’m Suzi and I’m a Chocoholic for an earth-toned rosy brown hue.

Ulta 3 Twilight Fever

Hi lovelies,

  So before we get to the polish I have to tell you guys this will be my only post this week. If you follow me on Twitter of Facebook you may or may not know I will be traveling this week to see Mr. LTHP. This will also be a trip to see out future home state so I am super excited about that. Basically, the last thing on my mind will be blogging ad nail polish lol. I will be randomly tweeting so I won't be completely out but I won't be posting again until next Monday, maybe Tuesday. Also for the lovelies who have awarded me with the Kreativ Blogger award I will be doing it as soon as I get back :)!

  So, onto some polish. Ulta 3's Twilight Fever is a dupe of our beloved Chanel Paradoxal or Revlon Perplex. The shimmer in this seems a bit more present than the shimmer in Perplex. I'll have to sit down and compare them at some point. The formula is the shiz! I could have gotten away with one coat but I did two. The stamping was done using Virtual Violet from China Glaze. I wanted a very, very subtle look that complimented the pretty Purple tones in this polish. I'm crazy about this simple clean mani. I can't wait to see it in full Sunlight.
 This is a lovely color and I cant get enough of these types of shades. I'll be more than happy to wear this all week. I'll let you guys know how it wears once I get back :).

See you in about a week :)

Sinful Colors Tokyo Pearl

Hello lovelies,

  Today I have a pretty white shade. This one came from my mama. It's really pretty and delicate and totally bridal looking. My bestie is getting married in November. I will be working on a series of manis inspired by her colors, patterns and such and hopefully I'll come up with the final designs for the brides and bridesmaids nails. This will be a lot of fun! This color has potential!

Tokyo Pearl is a pretty White base with a pearly shimmer. For this mani I layered one coat of Tokyo Pearl over Bettina's Marshmallow because I had a feeling the formula would be sheer and frosty on its own. Layered it is beautiful and delicate and looks like icing on a cake. It applies easy enough and since it was layered It really brought out the White tones in in more. I'm diggin' it

 Here is a swatch of the creamy White goodness that is Marshmallow. I love this color so much! This is two coats.

I can't wait to start working on the manis for my Lizy's wedding. I am so happy for her and so excited to get to go to Puerto Rico for the first time in Six years and for a wonderful occasion. After working on my very first Bridal Post I realized this was a theme that really inspired me so I'm looking forward to that. I've been feeling down lately and I think this might just be the thing to perk me up again. Plus I'm super excited for her to see what I come up with!

Thanks for stopping by :)
