Hello again! 

Have  you guys ever seen 3D Nail Charms/Decorations that you think are cute but you have absolutely no idea how its possible to wear them? Because that was me with these decorations :P ...but, I decided I really wanted to figure something out. So I'll let you know how I did it, just in case you ever decide you want to give them a try.

**These products were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**

Direct link --> 3D Rhinestones

I've always seen other people use 3D Pearls and 3D rhinestones (that don't have a flat surface), and wondered, "how the heck do they attach them to their nails!?" ...have you ever seen them and thought the same thing? 

I had them sitting around for a month or two and thought about using them a few times before I actually did. So, when I finally decided I was going to use them I decided to go through Instagram and find pictures of other people who have used them and see how they may have attached it to their nails (or hope they mentioned it in their post ;P). @red_iguana_ on Instagram has great videos of how to attach decorations btw.

I decided to do this cute design using one of the new China Glaze Chic Physique polishes. This is Pretty Fit, I applied 2 coats over all of my nails and then stamped Sinful Colors Snow Me White over my thumb, index and middle fingers using Born Pretty Store stamping plate BP-L020.

Once the polish was dry I placed some nail glue (a generous amount) onto the top section of my ring finger where I wanted to place the decorations. I first attached the 2 pearls side by side, and then placed the rhinestones (tip facing in towards pearls) directly in between the spaces above and below the pearls. It didn't quite look complete, so I added these mini silver ball decorations around the edge of the pearls and then took a small paint brush with some topcoat and went around the bottom edges of the decorations (I did not place topcoat over the top). After that was done I quickly and carefully applied topcoat to the rest of the nail.

Then to bring the design together I placed some of the silver ball decorations in the center of the flowers of the lace design, and then I did put topcoat over those decorations because they are small and I felt that if I didn't seal them in they would pop off the first time something touched them.

I wanted to keep these on for awhile to test out how well the decorations would stay on, and I must say that it worked really well! I had them on for a week and not one of the decorations on the ring finger came off (and I work in a Dental office where I wash my hands and wear gloves a lot!). I did have a few of the single silver balls pop off after a few days, but those are easy to pop back on.

So, if you're like me and have been wanting to give 3D charms a try, but you've been hesitant, I suggest you try it! Just make sure you use some nail glue and seal the edges and I think it should last you a good while! ;)  (oh and btw, when I did take them off, it came off in one whole piece!).

Happy Saturday Lovelies!

Today I am sharing some beautiful water decals with you guys. I recently received these decals along with some other fun goodies I will be sharing with you soon, from BeautyBigBang. BeautyBigBang is an online store specializing in Beauty and Nail products, and the best part is they're very affordable!

These are the decals I'll be sharing with you today!

**I received these products for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy located in the tabs above.**

I didn't want to overpower these decals in any way by adding too many or dressing up the design too much, because the decals are so beautiful! So I opted to go for a simple gradient design pulling colors from the decal and then added some rhinestones to finish off the design.

The polishes I used were: Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Royal Polish Carnation Creation, and LVX Bon Bon & Mondrian. I finished off the design using Seche Vite Fast Drying Topcoat.

So there you have it. A simple, elegant, and beautiful design!

I highly recommend you check out BeautyBigBang for yourself for many, many awesome nail products and more! And if you do, they have been kind enough to offer my followers 10% off of any order using the code 'PLAY'.

Hello lovelies! It's been awhile! 

Today I have some beautiful Polishes to share with you guys from Morgan Taylor's Little Miss Nutcracker Collection. I was gifted these polishes from and Morgan Taylor as part of the VIP program, to review, so let me get into it!

**These polishes were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**

Dreaming of Gleaming is a beautiful shiny silver polish. I only used 1 coat for full coverage which was such a pleasant surprise! Silver is definitely not my go to polish, but I feel like I could find a way to use this one. Maybe with some sharpies?? ;)

You Crack Me Up is a beautiful green sparkle polish. It's not my favorite polish, and I wouldn't necessarily pick it for myself but it was fun to wear for a little bit. It took 2-3 coats for full coverage,  and I didn't quite allow enough drying time before taking photos because I messed up the ring finger ;P oops!

Don't Toy With My Heart is one of my favorites from this collection! It's such a beautiful shimmery red polish. It's even more beautiful in person so I would highly recommend this polish if you're looking for a nice red shimmer.

Just Tutu Much is a stunning gold shimmer polish! This may be my new go to gold polish because I like it so much ;) 1 coat was enough for full coverage.

Ok, this is my absolute favorite polish from this collection! This is Plum-Thing Magical, it's a really beautiful deep purple with an almost magenta colored shimmer. The color shift is beautiful in different lights, which makes it super fun to wear! I just want to stare at it all day!

And of course you know I love this one! Baby It's Bold Outside is a stunning royal blue cream polish! I only used 1 coat for full coverage.

This collection also has a fun flakie/glitter topcoat, Silver in my Stocking. It's really pretty over the I decided to mattifie it! :D

Isn't it so pretty! (insert googley heart eyes here)

You can get this whole collection for yourself here:

 Happy Halloween!!

I don't want to take up much time talking...I just really wanted to share 2 last minute Halloween Nail designs with you guys :D

I received some new stamping plates from Bundle Monster for being one of their winners during their Halloween Nail Challenges, and I am IN LOVE!! <3<3<3


All of these images are from Bundle Monster's House of Horrors stamping plates.

Have a great Halloween!!

Good afternoon! 
Are you guys in the mood for some Halloween designs yet!? I wasn't until about a week ago. I tried before that and I just wasn't quite ready...but I am now and I'm excited to share the 2 designs I've done so far :D I hope you guys like them!

Up first I created this fun Sunset Graveyard scene. I've really loved doing gradient designs, but I haven't done any for awhile now, so I figured it would be fun to create some sort of gradient Halloween design. I used the Stamping plates I have for inspiration, and I love the way it turned out! 

Another thing I've really been loving lately is the double stamping technique. It almost makes this scene look snowy as well, which I wasn't exactly going for, but it makes it more it works ;) The images are from Bunny Nails plate HD-D.

This design was done for Bundlemonster's Halloween #Monsterscream Challenge. The challenge was to create a design using at least 2 of their products, inspired by a Horror Story (book, movie or tv series). I had been thinking about it all week and then when I actually sat down to create a design I could not think of anything for the life of me! I looked up Horror movies, books...tried thinking of what I've watched and read and nothing was coming to me. I even enlisted my best friends help. Lol. But I finally came up with this image after what felt like forever! (Literally a few hours :S ).

Anywho, I had to piece this image together, because I did not have a headless horseman stamp...if you can believe that? ;P I had a unicorn on one of the plates I used that I just removed the horn, I had a prince and a princess sitting on a wall, so I just used his torso and removed his head...(that sounds terrible! Haha), I even had to add a foot on him from a zombie plate I have. Lastly, I felt like he needed a weapon of sorts and the only thing I had that was about the same size that would fit in the space was this sword/ax thing? (idk what it's called). But overall, I am so happy with the way it all came together!

I'd love to know what you guys think of these designs, or what you'd like to see me do next! :)

Hi Lovelies!

Today I have a review and video for you guys :) I hope you like it!

**This product was sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**

I received these Polish Off Soakies to review a few months ago and I have tried them now about 3 times. It definitely took 3 tries to finally figure out the best way to use them. 

I'm definitely not patient when it comes to removing gel polish, or glitter polish, which is why I hardly ever wear it. But I have bought a few glitter powders, magnetic polish and a few other things that do require a gel topcoat...I've noticed that every time I want to use them, I end up not doing it because it requires a lot of patience to take the polish off. So when I heard from Mitty Burns that I was one of her winners for reviewing some products I decided to try out the Polish Off Soakies.

The first time I used them I struggled. I only had jumbo cotton balls, which as you can imagine does not work well in these soakies...but it was all I had. After 10-15 minutes of soaking the polish could be somewhat peeled off but did not come off completely. The second time was the same. But the third time I finally figured out it would be a good idea to file of the topcoat...and yay! It finally worked!

Check out my video that shows a little bit of my process ;)

Thank you to Mitty Burns for sending me these soakies :) I think I will start to wear more glitter polishes now without feeling the anxiety over taking them off hahah!

These soakies are available in multiple colors. Find them here:
