Sinful Colors Nail Junkie nail art

Hello Lovelies!

I've been playing around with the Sinful Colors polishes I got awhile ago, and I came up with this kinda strange design.
This is three coats of Sinful Colors Nail Junkie, Nail Junkie is a blue jelly glitter bomb with teal and pink hex glitters.


I stamped the fishbones with SH02 and Wet n Wild Wild Shine Black Creme, and then matted it with NYC Matte Me Crazy.
I was surprised by how easily Nail Junkie went on, it looked really sheer with the first coat and I wasn't expecting it to build up this well, but it looks totally opaque!

Sinful Colors Starry Night swatches

Hello Lovelies!

I feel like I've been swatching an awful lot lately instead of my usual nail art fare, but I felt this polish justified a post of it's own!
Walgreens is having a 99 cent sale on Sinful Colors polishes, and I actually only had one beforehand, so I went in and snagged a couple!


This is three coats of Sinful Colors Starry Night with topcoat! This is a rather strange polish, it's a black jelly with micro holo glitter, but it also has random little gold shards throughout the bottle, but they're pretty few and far between so it's hard to fish them out onto the nail. This is the thickest jelly I've ever encountered, not in a bad way, but it was a little fiddly in application.




And here's a artistic shot to fully show off the sparkly-ness of these nails!

Model's Own Magpie swatches

Hello Lovelies!

I'm swatching Model's Own Magpie today! I've had it ages but I'm only now getting around to trying it out! This is three coats with topcoat.


Magpie is a bright neon turquoise with black hex and micro glitters, it's almost a crelly but it seems like a creme at the same time, it's hard to pin down what finish it is. And it surprised me by looking even brighter on the nail than in the bottle, polishes are usually the reverse and prettier in the bottle!
I just love the speckled look, and it went on like a dream!

Covergirl tru-blend Foundation Classic Beige Review

Hello Lovelies!

I have a quick review for you today! I've been looking for a new foundation, and since I have very pale skin it's been a pain finding one! I was scoping out Big Lots for polishes when I saw these, they had a couple shades of the Covergirl tru-blend foundations. This was the lightest shade they had, and since it was only three bucks I figured why not give it a try?


This actually matches my skin tone almost perfectly, and has pretty decent coverage. It's very easy to blend, and almost soaks into the skin, but not in a bad way! And I love that it comes in a pump so you don't waste as much product when you're trying to get it out of the bottle. This is in the shade classic beige 2, and it's a pink toned formula, I didn't realize that I'd been using yellow toned foundations, and I think that's a big part of why it's taken me so long to find a decent one. I'm going to be going back to Big Lots asap to try to snag another bottle, I'm not going to beat this price anytime soon!

DIY Nail Polish Rack

Hello Lovelies!

I've been re-arranging my polishes over and over in different ways these past couple weeks, but I was never able to get them displayed in a way that was easy to get to and pretty at the same time.
After a ton of searching around the web, I found this nifty tutorial on how to make a nail polish rack out of foam boards!



I got three foam boards from wal-mart at two bucks a piece, and I already had some hot glue sticks lying around from my last round of crafting, so this was pretty easy to put together! I added the lace along the shelves as a last minute afterthought, I thought it made the rack look a bit more polished, (haha see what I did there?).





I was able to fit over 200 polishes in there, but I made seven shelves instead of six, and mine aren't lined up quite as prettily as in the video. Here's the video below so you can see how it's done:
