F4 Halloween Collection

Good evening ladies,

Today, for you viewing pleasure I have three polishes from F4's Halloween Collection. I got these a few weeks ago but I hid them from myself, so forgive me if you've seen these on other blogs already :). I received Hocus Pocus, Drunken Zombie and Boo To You. ( I also got a non-Halloween one that you will see soon)

Chocolaty Goodness

Evening ladies!

I am really excited about this, it's my first water marble that I think the whole thing was successful. Plus it reminds me of sweets! At first I thought it looked like chocolate-vanilla swirl ice cream, but then my honey said it reminded her of Hershey Hugs, and then I thought or Zebra cakes! So many delicious sweets.

10 Day Nail Art Challenge: Day 10!

"Although we've come to the end of the road, still I can't let go..."

Sorry about that, it's completely natural for me to randomly break into song. Happens multiple times a day. lol

But we really have come to the end of the road so to speak. This is the last day of the challenge. I'm gonna miss it, but I already have a whole list of ideas to show you guys. But, before that I have a review of some Halloween polishes! I can't wait to show you those either, they are gorgeous.

OK, back to the mani at hand. Today's assignment was to re-create our favorite. I was gonna redo my most popular, but I went in the other direction and did my least popular. I did day 3, with a twist. I chose my second favorite holiday, Halloween, and did a water marble using orange and black. Please keep in mind that this is only my third time doing this.

10 Day Challenge: Day 9

Good morning lades, we are almost to the last day. Can you believe tomorrow is the end? :( I'm gonna miss having a task to do each day. I really have no imagination when it come to nail art concepts lol.

Today's assignment was french tip variant. I couldn't think of anything to do! (I told you, no imagination) So, I pulled out my dotting tools. I used a base of Zoya Wednesday and used Zoya Arizona for my "dot tips". Can anyone guess what my favorite orange is? lol

10 Day Challenge: Day 8

Good morning ladies, we have come to day 8. Anyone else feel like this is going too fast? Today's theme was galaxy nails. I've seen so many gorgeous galaxy nails and heard they were pretty easy, so I thought maybe I'd end up with something pretty decent. Not so much.

I decided I wanted to do a blue galaxy base instead of the usual black. This was also inspired by pinterest. So I started with a base of WnW Teal of Fortune, then sponged on Zoya Song, China Glaze Bahamian Escape, Pure Ice Wild Thing, Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet, and made stars using Pure Ice Superstar. I also added a coat of Pure Ice Don't You Wish for a bit more sparkle.

10 Day Challenge: Day 7

Hello ladies, thank you for joining me again. We are at day 7, and it is flowers. This is my favorite so far! I recently got some nail stickers from Jilltastic Nail Design, but I couldn't find them, so I decided to use a stamp. I have fallen for stamping now that I've gotten the hang of it!

I started with a base of LA Colors Magnetic Force, which is an orangy-coral with golden shimmer. Then I stamped using Pure Ice Superstar (told you it gets used alot), then used a dotting tool and LA Colors Aqua Crystals to make the detail in the middle. The stamps are SE plates 19&21.

10 Day Challenge: Day 6

Welcome back ladies, we are at day 6, which is polka dots! (Also referred to as a "dotticure") This is my second one and was inspired by one that I found on pinterest. I think this one turned out better than my last one.

For this, I started out with a base of Julep's Jessica, my absolute favorite light blue! Then I used dotting tools to make the dots in Zoya Arizona and Pure Ice Superstar. (that poor thing gets used alot! Good thing I have about 4 bottles)

Ok, so it didn't turn out exactly like I planned, but I still like it. Don't forget to stop by Erica's and check out everyone else's. As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed! :)

10 Day Challenge: Day 5

   Okay ladies, we have reached day 5, the half-way point. The days are just flyin by. I was thinking of letting you guys tell me some nail art you would like to see. I can't promise that I'd get to it right away, but I would eventually.

   Ok, back to the challenge, todays task are gradients. I've been pracgticing these since I agreed to do this, and I just couldn't get the hang of it. Finally, Erica suggested using a kitchen sponge. That did the trick! This was my first semi-successful attempt. I've done a couple more, but I like this one the best.

10 Day Challenge: Day 4

Morning ladies, this is day 4 of our nail art journey, and it's time for some saran wrap!

Now this is a look that I've seen a couple times and wasn't sure that it was for me. After doing it I can definetly say it's not for me. But I've seen others that were cute and it was fun to do.
I used China Glaze For Audrey as the base, and once that was dry, painted on Lemon Fizz. Then set to town with my cling wrap. Mine's not quite perfect, but nothing of mine ever is! Lol

10 Day Challenge: Day 3

   Alrighty ladies, we have arrived at day 3 and it's... favorite season or holiday! My favorite holiday has to be Valentine's Day. Celebrating love and all the loved ones in our lives. Plus, all that yummy candy and chocolate. And who doesn't love a good stuffed animal? I'm personally fond of those big giant gorilla's that you see at Wal-Mart or pharmacies and such. So dang cute!

10 Day Challenge: Day 2

Good morning ladies, we are onto day 2 of the challenge. And today it's....Favorite Animal! This one was a no-brainer for me. Anyone who knows me knows that my favorite animal has always been pigs. I love all pigs: big ones, small ones, fat ones and fatter ones lol. My grandma had them when I was little and apparently is was all they could do to keep me away from them. I think my love for them boarders on obsessive.

10 Day Nail Art Challenge: Day 1

Good morning ladies, hope all is well!

As you may have heard Erica at Erica's Nails and More is doing a 10 day nail art challenge. I'm sure you have seen and maybe even done a 31 day challenge, but I don't think I could keep it up for that many days so 10 seems perfect for me.

PCOS & Ovarian Cancer Awareness

Hello ladies! I hope you all are having a wonderful day. Today's post subjects are one that are very dear to me.

If you don't already know, September is PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) as well as Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. My mother was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer when I was young ( I don't really remember it, guess I was too young or just blocked it out), but did have to end up having a full hysterectomy after my sister was born. And when I was in 10th grade I was diagnosed with PCOS. I don't share this with many people because I have many of the more embarrassing symptoms, but I feel so much kindness in this community and if I could help just one woman feel that she's not alone then it's totally worth it!

Rainbow Dotticure

Hello lades, I hope you all are enjoying your long weekend and are having a wonderful labor day. Can you believe it is September already? *side not only 9 more day until my 4th anniversary*

I'm sure most of you are aware that this past Saturday was the first Saturday of the month making it "Sassy Saturday" over at Shelly's. This month the theme was "dotticures".  I've seen alot of them lately but hadn't gotten around to it, even though I had it planned. I decided to do rainbow dots since I LOVE rainbows. Everything is better if it's rainbow hued.
