How'd that sand get there? NOPI

Hey everyone, would you know it, it's Tuesday already!! Avin, my little tot of nephew turns 2 tomorrow (say that fast 5 times lol). Anyways, today on my nails is another one of the polishes from NOPI's Roughles collection (I still don't know how to properly pronounce the name lol).

I will forever agree that yellow polish looks good against my skin tone, I just knew that I'd love this polish on me and whatdoyaknow, it does. The formula is just like the pink one I wore last week sometime, no complaints. I'm making my way slowly but surely to wear all 4 colors (no untrieds for these bambinos). 

Have a good day you all, I'm gonna sit here and get rid of this "Sand In My Shoe"....

L.A Colors- Mad Duo

Hello people how are you all doing this Sunday? I am wearing something pretty on my nails today and I figured I should put them on the blog, why let it go to waste because it's the weekend; even though I don't normally post on the weekends!

On my nails I am wearing a pretty color combination that is so summer/spring. I have seen this polish many times during my trips to the store Dollar General, I never thought about trying them after I had a bad experience with the polish L.A.Colors before. I pretty much liked to stay away from their formula. 

With this polish I was quite surprised at how well the application/formula is. You have two choices with this polish and a lot of the creations that are for sale are pretty well matched together. This one I chose is a duo polish consisting of a coral color on one end with pink and gold iridescent glitters on the other end; it's called Mad Duo. 

The formula is very smooth, no signs of streaks and finishes opaque in just two coats. I did not apply a top coat for this mani. 

Enjoy what little bit you have left of the weekend everyone :).

The Beauty Buffs: Pastel

Hello beauties.... 

Today I have a special post brought to you by a newly created group that I am a member of, it is created by the wonderful Nory over at fiercemakeupandnails. Nory, spoke to me on occasion about wanting to create a group for the us lacquer lovers to get together and do link up posts, based on certain topics.

This group is now known as The Beauty Buffs, we are a group on Facebook that will together create our own ideas of a chosen topic. One of the best things about this group is that we are not just focused on one style of beauty, you can incorporate into your post whatever it is that you affiliate with the top (ie. fashion, nail polish, makeup). 

Today's focus is on Pastels, I am choosing to showcase of my favorite brand of nail polish pastel colors. Bettina Cosmetics happens to be one of my favorite brands, the quality is excellent and consistent. I chose 4 pastel colored polishes out of my stash to do a polka dot mani. I was so stumped on a design, but when in doubt, polka dots will not let you down in search of a cutesy, quick design. 

For this mani I used Bettina polishes as followed:

Gladiola, Vanity, Cotton Candy, Orchidea.

I've also incorporated another one of my life's loves which happens to be sneakers. I have a huge sneaker collection and it wouldn't be me not to pay homage to the sneaker that started my love affair for this sneakerhead life. Here's a pic of an Easter-pastel colored sneaker collection by Reebok Classics. These particular models are called Reebok Freestyle Hi.

I am excited to be a part of this new platform for opportunities to interact with other unique and amazing bloggers, I do implore you all to check out all of the other ladies who will be sharing this platform The Beauty Buffs with me. You can keep tabs on TBB by exploring our IG hashtag #TheBeautyBuffs as well.

Sweet Crush Roughles

Good morning polish peeps. If you haven't noticed, we are one day closer to Friday (hey, any kind of motivation helps :).

On my nails today I have two textured polishes, recently released in stores. First, I'm wearing NOPI Roughles textured polish which has just released in stores, specifically Kmart. I spotted them last weekend after getting a tip from Jessica over at BE HAPPY BUY POLISH. I love the entire collection. Today I'm wearing "Rock the look", it's a pink strawberry smoothie looking formula (please don't drink this polish lol). Its application is very smooth to me, I had no issue applying this polish. I've applied just two coats of it.

The second textured polish I'm wearing is another newly released polish by Rimmel London's limited edition "Sweetie Crush" collection. There are 5 colors for this set & at Kmart they are priced for $2.29. This formula is a pink shimmery textured formula and is a easy apply. I've only applied two coats, it's called "Candyfloss Cutie".

I know you might be asking if I don't think it's too much pink.... Uhhhhhhhh nope, this is how I like it :).

I present to you, my current situation.....

Wet n Wild "Street Art" Deception Jelly

Good morning everyone, Happy Monday (as much as an oxymoron it sounds lol).

Today on my nails I'm wearing a polish from the Wet n Wild Street Art collection which is sold at Walgreens and Kmart (that I've seen). These are also on sale for .69 this week at Walgreens. At Kmart they're .99.

This purple polish is a jelly formula polish and it's called "Deception". I've noticed that I don't do many jelly manis, so I decided to make today a day for one.

I'm more of a creme formula chic for polishes but every now and then a cute jelly sandwich mani is needed for a change of scenery.

I've applied 3 coats of Deception, then another glitter polish by WNW called "Kaleidescope". I then layered a thin coat of Deception on top. For this post I didn't use a top coat to shine it up, you can if you like.

Do any of you like to wear jelly sandwich manis more than cremes?

Dupes, My Bad- Neon Orange

Hi ladies, surprised to see me on a Sunday too!! I was sitting looking at my stash and started thinking about my next dupe post. I realized I have at least 4 dupes of neon orange polishes so I chose that color to swatch.

The first neon polish I have which I am wearing on my pinky is by Fingr's and it's called "RE-Orange My Closet", on my ring finger is Color Club's "Wham! Pow!", middle finger is showing you China Glaze "Japanese Koi" and index finger shows you Cynthia Rowley "Neon Orange". They are similar in color but not in formula. The Fingr's, Color Club and China Glaze are consistent in smooth application, while the Cynthia Rowley is very, very streaky even with 3 coats. 

I do see that the Fingr's polish is slightly darker from the rest of the colors. All were applied with 3 coats without a top coat.

Purple Textured Ombré

Hi all, how goes it for your Thursday which equals to Friday Eve :). I have no plans this weekend, I forsee a relaxing tv which may include nail polish.

On my nails today is a ombré mani using different purple textured polishes. I thought to myself (because I was feeling a bit tired) what could I do that's simple and fast, so this is what I came up with.

On my index finger is a lilac colored textured polish from Zoya's Pixie Dust collection called "Stevie". My middle figer is Sinful Color's Crystal Crush "Purple Gleam", ring figer is OPI's "My Current Crush" and pink is Zoya Pixie Dust "Carter". 

I haven't done an ombré mani in a good while so it's a pretty refreshing change of look.

Now you can look too below :)....
