Halloween Nails - Candy Corn Gradient!!

Hey dolls!

So I am so excited to share these candy corn nails with you today! I have to say fall is my favorite season of the year, and I just love all the little pleasures within!! I looovee candles, colored leaves, dressing up for Halloween, and of course candy corn!!

I hate trying new nail art because I'm kind of a perfectionist, and I don't like messing up!! I was really happy that these turned out good!! I hope you think so too!!

Onto what I used:
2 coats of Sally Hansen X-treme Wear in White On as a base. Then I sponged on Orly Crush On You and Sally Hansen X-treme Wear in Mellow Yellow. Then to top it off I added one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!

Disney Villains Designer Collection- 6 Piece Polish Set// Swatches

Hey dolls!!
So today I am very excited to share with you the Disney Villains Nail Polish Set!! I received this set as a gift from someone, and I am soooo glad that i was able to get my hands on it!! These polishes are very very unique!!

Each polish is based on one of six Disney villains. With it being "villains themed" these polishes are somewhat dark, but that is ok with me!

I was happy with the wear time of the polishes, although there is usually one or two things that is not so like-able about a polish. In this case, some - not all - but some of these polishes were somewhat goopy and thick. Maybe some nail polish thinner could fix these problems, but right now I currently do not own a bottle of thinner :( Anyways, overall I was happy with these!!

Now onto the swatches!!

First up we have Cruella De Vil. Cruella was in 101 Dalmations. Of course there is only one color to capture her, red of course!!! I really like this creamy red!! This was one of the polishes out of the set that was easier to work with!! :)

Next we have Evil Queen. The Evil Queen played in Snow White. I really like this one. It is a black base with purple and red reflex glitter within. Unfortunately, this was probably one of the thicker polishes that wasn't so easy to work with.

Do you see those glitters?!?!!

Maleficent is probably my favorite polish from this set. I am absolutely in love!!! Maleficent stars in the Disney film Sleeping Beauty. This teal polish is sooo pretty!! It sort of has a blue/green/teal shift in it. I'm in love!!

Mother Gothel comes next in line. Mother Gothel was in Tangled. I think this polish captures her well.  It is a dark red jelly. It is great for the fall season too! This polish was also easy to work with.

Now we have Queen of Hearts. The Queen of Hearts was in Alice in Wonderland. I'm not sure what I think of this polish.. but I think it's ok. It is a gold polish with gold glitters within. What do you think?

And lastly, we have Ursula. Ursula was in The Little Mermaid. Though this polish is pretty, it is a bit streaky and bubbly. :( It is a light purple with almost silver colored glitters suspended throughout. Like Queen of Hearts, I'm just not sure about this one. Haha and sorry about the awkward handpose :P

Thank you guys so much for taking the time to stop by and read this!! :))

Breast Cancer Awareness Oct. 2012 - Pink Nails

Hey lovelies!! Today I have a special post. Since it is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I've decided to do a few pink manis this month, and am sharing one with you today! I know a couple of women that have dealt with breast cancer, and have overcome it. They are now two very strong women, even though it can still be tough.

Anyways... today's mani consists of two pink polishes, of course! The colors I used are OPI If You Moust You Moust and Sally Hansen X-Treme Wear in Strobe Light. 

If You Moust You Moust
is just an absolutely gorgeous pink! It is a rich and creamy Barbie pink. I love it!! Strobe Light is also gorgeous!! I just love all the holo bits of glitter within the pink glitter!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!

Sally Hansen - Plum Luck

Hey guys!! Sorry it has been so long since my last post!! Anyways, I recently picked up Plum Luck by Sally Hansen at Walgreens, and it is just the perfect fall shade!! This is a Complete Salon Manicure, which are normally 8 bucks, but I found mine for $1.87 while it was on closeout at my local Walgreens!! What a deal! This is just the prettiest color ever!! I can't stop staring at my nails!!

Plum Luck is a dark creme purple that is absolutely gorgeous!!

This is 2 coats with base coat and top coat. Gosh I could just stare at my nails for forever!! I think that it is darker on my nails than it is in the bottle..

:) Thanks for stopping by and reading, I hope you enjoyed!!
