Swatch Sundays: NYC Robins Egg Blue

Hello Lovelies!

I'm swatching up NYC Robins Egg Blue today, this is a bleached mint blue creme, that's opaque in two coats. I went with three though, because I whacked a nail and had to go over it again to patch the smear. This is with a coat of shiny topcoat. This leans a bit more green irl, so it is a true mint!



See you later!

Lolita tea party and photo shoot

Hello Lovelies!

A while back I went to a Lolita tea party hosted by Wabi Sabi in Bend, and I wanted to show you some of the pics I got! Tea Cozies catered the tea party, and it was amazing, we had earl grey tea, scones, tea cakes, cucumber sandwiches, chocolate strawberries, and just a lot of lovely goodies!






After tea, we wandered down to the park for pictures since it was such a lovely day. Walking through the saturday market was interesting, we got stopped for quite a few pictures!





I had a lot of fun, and it was great wearing my dress out for the first time~

See you later!

Of shoes and ships, and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings!

Hello Lovelies!

"What is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversation?” Kind of like my nails, I'll take pretty nail art over swatches any day!




Today I'm reviewing some Alice in Wonderland water decals I was sent by Born Pretty, I was surprised by how big the sheet turned out to be! I could get four full nails from each of those blocks at the bottom of the page, I don't much care for the images on the far right, but the rest of them are pretty cute! I'll have to do some playing card nails next~
I started these nails off with three coats of Ciate Dollface, and then topped the decals with Wet n Wild Clear Nail Protector.



Here's where you can find them on BP's site, and this code is good for 10% off: ALBK31

See you later!

Swatch Sundays: Powder Perfect Bay of Alexandria

Hello Lovelies!

I have a very special polish to show off today, my awesome boss sent me this polish because the name is just too perfect!
This is the glitziest blue I've ever had on my nails, this may be my new favorite shade!


Powder Perfect Bay of Alexandria is a glitter bomb packed with teal micro glitters that dries to a semi matte sugar finish. This is two coats with topcoat to smooth out that sugar finish. I was dreading removal with this one, but since the glitters are so fine, it didn't give me much grief.


See you later!
