BPS Tribal Style Water Decals Review

***Products used in this post were provided for review.

Hello lovely readers! I apologize for my very long and very unexpected break. There is a family situation eating up all of my time and energy, and blogging has been put on hold unfortunately. For the first time in my 29 years, I am experiencing constant stress and anxiety and I've learned that I do not handle it well. I am not taking care of myself at all, and the state of my nails reflect that so I apologize for them but I need to get this review done. 

I received these lovely Tribal Style Water Decals from The BornPretty Store to review a while ago. I was waiting until my nails were back in shape, but it doesn't seem like that is going to happen anytime soon so I figured I may as well try them out. These are the gorgeous water decals:

The instructions included are very clear and simple:

I started with 2 coats of SinfulColors Mint Apple. I then applied the water decals to my nails following the directions to the best of my ability. I topped it all off with Seche Vite and this was the end result:

These decals were super easy to use, I just followed the instructions and it was done in under a minute! The details on the bird did not come out clearly; I don't know if I did something wrong or if I got a bad batch. I tried 3 different times, and the bird came out like this every time. Even so, I love the look of these decals. I will definitely be trying out a full manicure if my nails ever grow out. 

If you are thinking of getting some water decals, I would definitely recommend it. They are super easy to use and look great. If you are interested, here is a code that will get you a discount :)

Watercolor Nail Art

Hello lovely readers! Sorry for the long absence, but I've had several problems that have interfered with blogging. Instead of boring you with details, I'll show you some pretty nails. I saw this pin on Pinterest a while back and knew I had to try to recreate it. Mine isn't as gorgeous as the original, but I still like how they turned out: 

I'm going to be honest and say I'm not 100% sure on the polishes I used, but I believe I used the following: I know I started with a coat of Sinful Colors Snow me White. Then I applied dots (as shown on the Pinterest pin) of the following polishes: I Need a Refresh-Mint, On a Trip and Candy-licious. These are all from the wet n wild megalast line. I topped it all off with a coat of Seche Vite. This was a fairly simple and quick mani and I will be trying a neon version soon. 

I hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading!

Hey everyone!

First of all I would love to thank Simple Joy Of Polish for having me as a guest blogger. She’s the sweetest! So for today’s blog I put together a nail tutorial featuring one of my favorite hello kitty characters, Pochacco. Let’s get started!

What you will need:
Purple polish
White polish
White thin design polish
Black thin design polish
Dotting tools

Optional for chicky sidekick:
Yellow polish
Orange thin polish


Start of with your favorite base coat  |  paint nails with purple polish (China glaze – Grape Pop)

Optional: I added a second coat of an iridescent shimmery purple (Sinful Colors - Fiji)

Draw the head with white polish (Sinful Colors – Snow Me White)

Outline the head, draw ears, and 3 tiny lines for hair with a black designer polish (CM - Black)

With a dotting took make the eyes & nose

Draw thin white lines in the ears to show the inside of Pochaccos ears (Daisy - White)

Optional: Chickys! – Follow steps as Pochacco
Yellow: China Glaze -  Lemon Fizz
Orange: CM – Orange

WAH-LAH! Here is the finished look!

I hope you guys enjoy this look.

 Remember that the list above is just what I used so you can use anything you have on hand, change the background or draw one of Pochaccos other side kicks. Be creative! 

 I want to thank Simple Joy of Polish for having me as a guest blogger again. I hope you guys will come visit my page beautysaurusxo :)

Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots: Clearly Spotted

Hi lovely people! I have a special treat coming your way very soon. I don't want to give too much away, but I will give a (not so small) clue: beautysaurusxo. So check out her page and be on the lookout for the special post!

On to today's post. Ever since I saw this post by Nouveau Cheap , I have been dying to get my hands on Chalk Dust, which is black and white glitter in a clear base. I had heard that these polishes were coming out in the US in July, so imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon this polish this past weekend in Walmart. What I found odd is that I could find no display and no other polishes in this collection. I just found this polish (which has been renamed Clearly Spotted) in the regular Maybelline display. Anyway, on to the pretty pictures:

Base coat: Seche Clear
Base color: Sinful Colors Grecian Sun (2 coats)
2 coats of Clearly Spotted
Top coat: Seche Vite (1 coat)

Isn't it gorgeous!?! I love it over this shade of blue, but cannot wait to try it over every other color I own! And then for fun, I added a coat of Essie Matte About You: 

I cannot wait to get my grubby little hands on the other polishes from this collection! 

Thanks for reading :)
