Wet n Wild Speak When Spoken To

Hello lovely readers! Today I have Speak When Spoken To. It is from Wet n Wild's Be Jeweled collection. I was fortunate enough to find Speak When Spoken To and The Crown is Mine (both from the same collection) for $1 each at my local Rite Aid! 



Base coat: Essie Fill the Gap
Base color: Wet n Wild Black Creme (1 coat)
Wet n Wild Speak When Spoken To (1 coat)
Top Coat: Seche Vite

Honestly, how fantastic are these?!? The formula on this one was great and the drying time was excellent. The duochrome effect was hard to capture, trust me when I say these are much more stunning in real life. It is a silvery blue that shifts to pink and can anyone resist? I cannot wait to try The Crown is Mine :) 

As always, I hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading! 

ps. I had to photograph my right hand for these pictures. My family gets a little crazy at the pool and as a result, I have two broken finger nails on my left hand :(

Revlon Whimsical

Hello lovely readers! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend...I know I did. I got to spend the day lounging by the pool with the people I love most in the world. 

I have a short post today. I finally got my hands on Revlon's Whimsical! I don't know why I waited so long to buy it, but it is beautiful :)

Base coat: Essie Fill the Gap
Base color: Sally Hansen Barracuda (two coats)
Revlon Whimsical (two coats)
Top coat: Seche Vite

Isn't it perfectly soft and dreamy??? I love it!

As always, I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for reading!

Ciao Bella!

Hello lovely readers! I came across Sinful Color's Ciao Bella! recently and I couldn't resist it. It is a gorgeous cobalt blue jelly with tiny flakies (I think). It is seriously beautiful, but it was a pain to photograph. Here it is:

(all three pictures were shot in shaded natural light)
Base coat: Essie Fill The Gap
Ciao Bella! 3 coats
Top coat: Seche Vite

Although I tried my best to photograph the gorgeousness that is Ciao Bella!, my pictures do not do this color justice. Believe me when I say it is much more vibrant in person. I definitely recommend this shade if you do not have it. And as I understand it, Ciao Bella! is part of Sinful Colors new Start a Phenomenon display. 

As always, I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for reading!

Versatile Blogger Award

Hello lovely readers! I hope your weekends are off to a great start :)

I wanted to give a huge THANK YOU to Kelly's Nail Blog for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. If you haven't yet found her blog, I suggest you check it out NOW. She has great manis and swatches over at her blog.

The rules for this are: 
1. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers who are relatively new to blogging.
2. Let them know that you have nominated them.
3. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
4. Thank the bloggers who have nominated you.
5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your post.

I had to do a bit of homework to find 15 bloggers who are new (or relatively new, anyway) to blogging, but I accomplished it lol. Here they are: 

7 facts about myself:
1. I am Mexican, but am always told I look Indian/Arabian. People are shocked when I start speaking Spanish lol 
2. Even though I am Latina, and apparently, Latinos are born with the ability to dance to anything, I am a HORRIBLE dancer. Honestly, I have no rhythm. It would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad lol. Especially because my boyfriend is a fantastic dancer (he was even in a salsa team!)
3. Even though I was born in the US, I did not learn to speak English until I was 8 years old. Apparently, I refused to learn because I wanted to go live in Mexico and somehow thought that I would accomplish that goal by not learning English lol. 
4. I am incredibly shy. It's actually a bit crippling to be honest, but I'm trying to manage
5. I have my master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy :) 
6. I LOVE to bake, but rarely eat what I bake lol. I simply like the process, but I do not have a sweet tooth at all
7. I have a 7 month old niece who is the love of my life. Isn't she the cutest! 

Again, a huge thanks to Kelly's Nail Blog for the award. Thank you for reading and now go check out her blog lol
