New Stuff On Its Way!

Hey guys!

I'm in the middle of painting my nails for tomorrow's post :)

But I also just wanted to make a little post about some new items I just ordered!  I ordered my first ever nail art tools, a combination of dotting tools.  And I got some striping tape!  I've been dying to get dotting tools and striping tape was so cool looking and cheap I had to get it!

Basically what this means is that I hope to have some more mani posts coming soon! If you have any requests let me know below :)

Night guys!

Lynn B Designs' Ghostlike Charms


How is everybody?  Getting close to the weekend, I know I'm waiting for it.  I have only one class tomorrow, and a quiz in it.  But after that I get to go home to visit my family and Mr. Jojo :)

Today I've got another review of one of Lynn B Designs' polishes, this one is called Ghostlike Charms.  I believe it is part of a Nightmare Before Christmas collection which I am ecstatic about because that's one of my all time favorite movies.

Here's some bottle shots!

I managed to get some direct sunlight pictures of this guy :)

Revlon's Bewitching

Hey guys!

I've got another great polish for you guys today!  This is the one I wore under Benedict :)

Bewitching is a gorgeous berry shade, it's absolutely perfect for fall!  I got it in a huge Kmart closing out sale, for just $2.99 Ironic, the only Revlon polishes left were all in the red family...I guess people just aren't feeling red this season?  Who knows.  I definitely am!  Here's a bottle shot below~

Lyn B Designs' Benedict!

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the lack of weekend posts, time got away from me!

But today I have a gorgeous polish to show you guys sent from Jenna at Lyn B Designs!  This polish is called Benedict~

Here's some bottle shots, but here's the thing.  I live in Oregon and our natural light is pretty much gone, so I'm now going to be taking pictures under a light with more of a blue tone.  I've experimented with different ones and this is the lighting I find matches the color most truly.

China Glaze's Light As Air!

Hi lovelies~

As you guys know, I've been moved into my new dorm at Portland State, I'm loving it but it is a lot of new stuff and a lot of new stuff that takes up my time so I'm hoping to keep my posting consistent but if it gets a little bit off schedule don't hate me, I'm doing the best I can guys!

So right before I moved, literally the night before, I got Light As Air by China Glaze in the mail.  I was awed because Lemon Fizz was supposed to get here first, but Light As Air was the one I wanted right now!!  So imagine my excitement.  I had to put it on that night!

Here are the bottle shots!

China Glaze's Peachy Keen!

Hi everyone!

Did anybody guess the color from my twitter?  It's China Glaze's Peachy Keen!  It's from an older collection called Up And Away which coincidentally I am now obsessed with.  I purchased this polish, Lemon Fizz, Light As Air, and Four Leaf Clover and honestly I plan to purchase the whole collection.  The bright yellow from the collection is next on my list, but unfortunately I am not on the polish market for a while!  But, good news is I have a few different Indie polish brands sending me some goodies to swatch and review for you guys!  One of them is even a sneak peek at an upcoming collection, get excited!

So Peachy Keen, here's the bottle shots!

First Bout of Beach Pictures!

Hi everyone,

I know I've been promising these beach pictures forever and now I finally have them!  I am going to have several posts of these guys because I have tons of pictures!  Okay I'm just going to get to the pictures because no one really wants to hear me ramble.  Again these pictures are pretty big so feel free to click them for a bigger view!

We call her Princess Shelby K.

My lovely mom and my dog Jo Jo :)

This is a little dog called Peanut who loves me!
There will be several more posts, this is just the first!  And this photography is pretty much loose and candid, I didn't get into really composed shots until later in the trip and even my "really composed shots" don't hold a candle to most photographers.
