Muffin Monday Video!!

Hi loves!!

  By popular request... Here is a video of Muffin making her pick for the day. I swear it is not normally this easy lol. But it should be fun to show you guys this process every week :). This particular pick she made very easily and I can see why.. I mean even Muffin know an awesome color when she sees it...

Stay tuned later on for my look featuring Cult Nails Let me Fly. I will try to have a tutorial to go along with the look as well. I went to look at cameras this weekend but I really want to keep practicing with iMovie so I hope you guys don't mind the crappy video quality for a little bit. Practice makes perfect right? ;)

I hope to see you guys later :)!

Sinful Colors Daddy's Girl

Hi loves and happy Sunday!!!

  Missed you guys yesterday but I just did not have time to get much done Friday or Saturday. Today I just have a swatch of one of the prettiest Sinful Colors polishes ever. It's Purple, it's jelly and it's sparkly. What's not to love? Also in case you haven't heard.. I have a You Tube channel now!! There will be Muffin vids coming very soon :)!
Daddy's Girl is the pretties shade of true Purple jelly packed full of Purple sparkles that have a slight Golden duochrome. The formula on this is just a little tricky, a little thick and goopy? It's not terrible by any means. and it takes a little longer to dry than most of my other colors. Nothing one coat of Seche can't fix.... I really love this color, it's juicy! For this mani I used Three coats of color.

Which are your Sinful Favorites?

Sephora by O.P.I My Personal Serpent and Havana Dreams Drip Mani and My very First Tutorial

Hi lovelies!!

  Today I have a post full of firsts!! I received this pretty $OPI colors from a micro swap I did with one of my Facebook friends. Today I have my very first "drip mani" and I did a tutorial to go along with this post. It's not a great tutorial but I was so excited to start playing around and practicing and such that I just went for it with what I had available for recording lool! I have a tutorial for this look up on You Tube.
 I cannot believe I forgot to take a swatch pic of My Personal Serpent which is the dark Teal color I am holding and wearing as my base. My Personal Serpent is a dark Teal creme and a true ONE coater.  For the drip effect I used Havana Dreams and to top it all off I used a thin coat of INM Northern Lights. I really loved working on this mani because this is such an easy technique and just fun to work on. Later on I should have a Tutorial on this look. :)

What are your thoughts on my drip mani? Have you checked out my giveaway yet?

Bettina Resort Collection Colorful Watermarble and my First You Tube Video!!

Hi loves!!

  Today I have an awesome watermarble I did using all of my colors in the Bettina Resort Collection. I really just love all of these colors soo much and I needed an excuse to wear them all at one time.. What better way to do so than with a watermarble? This mani is so going in my Epic Win label. Also I have some exciting news!! I now have a You Tube Chanel. I have not loaded anything yet but be on the look out for some vids!
  As my base I used one coat of Bettina's Marshmallow. And as I said for the marbling I used all six colors in the Resort Collection which I have pictured and labeled below. I love my Bettinas for marbling. They are just perfect for this technique. After I was done with everything I added one coat of INM Northern Lights top coat for some extra sparkle!

And Just a reminder for Bettina purchases!!! Lovelies wanting information on pricing, shipping and purchasing Bettina polishes please shoot an email to (Rosama Distributors-authorized distributors Bettina cosmetics)

Here is my very first You Tube Vid!
And another reminder: I am in no way affiliated with Bettina. I do not get paid to do these posts of feature their products. They are just a brand that I love and the people of Bettina are fond of my work. I'm sorry to those of you who have emailed and not heard back but I don't really have any control over what they do and how long it takes them to respond to emails. My only advice is to keep emailing them if you have gotten in touch and have not heard back... They could be dealing with a large volume of emails and you never know of something slipped through the cracks. I only take it upon myself to share the information on how to purchase because I get asked every single post.

Anywho, I hope you all enjoyed this post. It was so much fun to work on. Have you entered my giveaway yet?
