Etsy Mania!! BeadsInk Nail Polish Jewelry

Hi loves and happy Sunday!!

  Today I have a little quickie review of a lovely Etsy shop that focuses on nail polish jewelry. This shop is ran by the lovely Stephanie P. and it is called BeadsInk. Stephanie contacted me a few weeks ago to see if  I would feature some of her pieces here at LTHP. The issue I ran into with her shop: Wanting everything I saw lol. I finally settled on Two necklaces and Stephanie included the sweetest surprise ever, a ring I was not expecting and it totally warmed my heart.

Remeber the Floam ring and Random Dancing pendant I featured not long ago? They were made by Steph at BeadsInk. The Floam ring was a surprise from Stephanie. She knew I had been hunting down the nail polish, Floam, and she so awesomely made me a ring out of it!

Zoya Surf Collection Swatches and a Recap

Good afternoon loves and happy Friday (The 13th o.O)!!

  Today I get to show you the flashier half of Zoya's Summer 2012 Collections. This is the Surf Collection for Summer 2012. This half consist of Six totally amazing and eye-poppin metallic- foil colors. Zoya always shines (badum tsssss no pun intended lol) when it comes to flashy Summer Collections. I really loved last years Sunshine Collection but I think Surf might have just knocked Sunshine down a few places for the spot of my favorite Summer colors. I have nothing else like these in my entire collection.
 Now... You should seriously consider reading the rest because I'd hate for you guys to miss out on these amazing colors!

Black and White Challenge! Day Five- Black on Color #FishEggFriday

Good morning!!

**EDIT** Today is Fish Egg Mani Friday :DD!!! hahah I found out from Sammy, my challenge buddy, that I guess sometime last nite it was deicded that today would be Fish Egg Mani Friday as a way to stick it to Ciate(LOOOOOOL). The fact that I did a kaviar mani today was actually nothing more than a coincidence but of course I wanted to be added to the list of lovelies participating in this most epic movement. I should have another edit later on with the list of Fish Egged nail Bloggers :).

  Today I have for you guys Day Five of the Black and White Challenge. The task for today is to use Black over a color base. I decided to incorporate the color Blue into the rest of the Black and White Challenge where color is allowed. I'm trying to feature as much Blue as possible throughout April for Autism Awareness.
 I started with Two coats of Zoya Robyn. Such an epic shade of Blue... Then I wanted to do a full caviar texture mani so I went to town with my Black micro beads from Michaels. This is totally unrelated, but just in case you guys did not know about this...  I'm sure by now ya'll have heard about the Ciate fiasco, them sending C&D letters to bloggers using the term "caviar nails" when they dont even own the trademark yet, apparently. I found this quite funny actually, how they choose to waste their money trying to trademark a concept they did not even spawn... And then bully people with letters about using a term they don't even own.... STooooooPID! See [THIS] post for more info.
So yeah.. Ciate can kiss my microballs.. What? Are they gonna get Michael's and every craft store in the land to stop selling these? Hahahah.... I wonder who the brilliant mind behind their marketing is... Don't they realize how dumb they look right now? I guess not, if they did they wouldn't be moving forward with that nonsense. Why not put that money towards actually developing a new and innovative trend? Or even better, just make your colors more interesting so you don't have to trademark other's concepts as your own....

  Today I have swatches of one of Zoya's new Summer Collections. Zoya usually does Two complementing collections for Summer, one creamy and one flashy. Today I will be showing the Beach collection which is made up of Six beautifully vibrant cremes for the Summer season. This is my first set of Summer Colors and so far I have to say that Zoya has set the bar very high for Summer color with the release of the Beach and Surf collections. 
 You should totally continue reading because these colors are drool-worthy!
