The Beauty Buffs: Nautical/Beachy Theme

Hi everyone.... I've got some good news for you all..... not only is it hump day, it's The Beauty Buffs celebration day too!! With that being said, we have a fun theme to celebrate today; calling all nautical/beachy themed nails!!!

I couldn't think of anything beachy so I just made a anchor on my accent nail and did it up with a few colors that remind of me nautical attire--orange, navy blue and white. The orange polish i'm wearing is by Sinful Colors called "Anchors Away" (I know, how appropriate :) and the navy blue polish is from Sinful Color's Silk collection, it's called "Matte About Blue".

Breakfast In Bed with Rita Ora

Hi everyone, my Monday went so fast at work by the time I stopped to look at the clock it was 3:30 (fine by me)!!

Over the weekend I spotted these polishes at Walmart for $1.50, they're Rita Ora's limited edition polishes done by Rimmel London. On my nails is the minty fresh color by the name of "Breakfast in Bed". This is 3 coats, no topcoat. The formula is average, not thick and not runny, applies smooth no streaks.

TNCC: Recreate nail design post #4

Hey again people, I have here my 4th and final post for TNCC's July theme of recreating my first 4 nail designs. This design is one that I enjoy creating, I think I did a good job for the original post as it was my first time also. You can check out the original post HERE.

Here is my recreated version and the polishes used....

Zoya Naturel Deux (2) Collection Swatches


Hi everyone, how was your weekend? My weekend (although it is not over just yet) was very very nice. Mr. Nailmattic and I was in Orlando all day walking, eating, shopping and just enjoying each other's company (I did pick up many bottles of polishes this weekend as well :).

Today is lazy day so I decided to get this package from Zoya out for the swatching while I am bored.

This collection is more of nude/neutral color polishes. This collection has been swatched in coats of 3 with 1 thin coat of top coat, they do bare resemblance to the first Naturel collection.

This is Emilia 

This is Chanelle

This is Spencer

This is Madeline

This is Aubrey

This is Marney

That sums up this Naturel collection, after seeing these colors; which one(s) will you be purchasing? You will be able to purchase them on the Zoya site or at your local Ulta.

Rubber Matte

Good morning, well what is that at the end of the week; it looks like Friday approaching the platform YAYYYY

My week has been just blah and I'm ready for some get away time with Mr. Nailmattic (he's finally come to terms with his new sidekick name).

So today I have two polishes from Sinful Colors, both untried and 1 I didn't know is a matte finish.

The textured polish I'm wearing is a burgundy color from the Full Throttle collection and it's called "Race Rubber". As I said before, these textured polishes are of the more subtle textured finishes than ones I own; it isn't as rough as the others. On my accent nail is Get It On which is a burgundy matte finish polish.

Hot Pink Holo

Hey hump dayers lol!! How is your week going? Mine was going ok until I got word that my close neighbor died on Saturday. I haven't found out yet what killed her but I am sure she is free from all the pain she was enduring.

On to my nails, I am wearing a polish by Nabi which is a holographic 3-D effect polish. I haven't bought holo polishes in a bit, I happen to be a part of the Polish-aholics Anonymous facebook group and a nail supply store in Brooklyn is closing and decided to sell a few items. I got 4 Nabi holo polishes for $2 each and had them shipped to me. 

I am wearing 3 coats and 1 coat of top coat of HOT PINK by Nabi.

Hey Hey Hey!!

Here we are, the beauty buffs.....

Tis the season to be flowery fa la la la.... This Wednesday we have been given the task to celebrate all that is flowery. I can't say that I wear many flower designs on my nails or as a clothing pattern, but rummaging through my nail art accessories basket I did find these flower designed nail decals. 

The green textured polish is from L'oreal's Miss Denim collection and it's called "Jean & Tonic".

Do remember to stop and smell the flowers!!

I Tag Me-Beauty Survey

Hey my peoples, sorry I don’t have a fab mani to share with you all today, but reading this post by Varnishingpoint, I liked her little polish beauty survey and thought it is a cute idea so consider it *STOLEN* lol and if it's any consolation, I added a few more to make it more funner (yes I said funner).

So here’s my job and this little beauty Q & A:

1.     What’s your favorite nail polish company? I’d have to say OPI or Bettina Cosmetics

2.     Glitter or no glitter? Yes, the removal process has gotten so much easier that it’s safe to wear glitter still lol.

3.     OPI, China Glaze or Essie? OPI because I like the wide brush and the fast drying time.

4.     When do you change your nail polish? I normally change it every night #don'tjudgeme, but it really depends on my mood.

5.     What’s your favorite color on your nails? Pink mostly, I don’t favor dark colors

6.     Darks or brights? Brights, I love colorful nails, I have to be in a real bad mood to wear dark colors—you won’t find too many in my collection.

7.     What are you wearing on your nails right this moment? Just 1 coat of Sinful Colors base coat.

8.     Matte nails… in or out? In!! In the beginning I didn’t care for the matte look but with certain shades it has won me completely over.

9.     Do you like French manicures? Uh, I mean…. I don’t hate it, but I haven’t worn it since high school; not really my forte’

10. What’s your favorite winter color? Reds

11. How many coats is too many for opacity? more than 3

12. What cheap in price brand polish have you found to be good quality? Wet N Wild polishes are .99 but they opaque in 2 coats for me!

13. Nail technique you're pretty good at doing? Water marble

14. How old is too old for nail art? It depends on the type of nail art

15. How many "no buys" have you successfully completed? NONE!! LOL

Well people, that concludes my quick little beauty Q & A, I don’t have anyone to tag so feel free to post this again with your own fun filled answers!!

Citric Acid-OOTD 7/12/14

Wakey Wakey.... I should've posted it yesterday but we were so busy enjoying our day (we as in Mr. Nailmattic and I). Now that I have my photographer with me 24,7, I'll be posting more OOTD from wherever we venture out to.

Applebees was our destination and I wasn't in the mood to get all fancy shmancy. I threw on a pair of Acid Wash jeans I got from Forever 21 and a top I got my TJMaxx (name never heard of). 

On feet is a pair of Nike Air Max 1 "Citrus".

TNCC-Recreate your first 4 nail art designs #2

Heyyyy it's Friday *hands on knees, duck face Twerk mode* lol

Well i wanted to be proactive this week therefore I am getting my monthly post for TNCC done early (I normally do it on Sunday). So here I have the second post of the voted "Recreate your first 4 nail art designs). When I first created this design back in June of 2012 I used red polish with gold crackle, the crackle didn't break up as I would've liked it to which sucked, but this time around I feel that I looks so much! 

Here is my first design 2 years ago, you can also view this post HERE

Here is my 2014 recreation of it, I used Bettina's "Passion", OPI "Rose of Light" and Maybelline Shredded " Carbon Frost".

Dupes, my bad- Yellow Textured polish

Hi peeps!! Happy Friday Eve lol! I did a quick comparison here of two textured polishes. 

The OPI one is called You're so flippy floppy & Sinful Colors Face the Facets. I think they're not a dupe, the SC one is much brighter while the OPI is dull, what do you think? This is 3 coats of both.

LA Girl Lip Paint Coy & Blushing

Good day folks, today I'd like to show you 2 pigmented lip paint glosses that my boyfriend picked up for me last Friday from Kmart. I mean I was there, but I told him to pick two colors for me. 

I initially wanted the Too Faced lip paints but they're weren't available in stock at my Ulta (seems like they're quite the popular ones around these parts.

Blushing is a mauve or rosey pink color that isn't loud which is why I like it. 
Next is Coy which is a purple pigmented lip gloss that doesn't turn I to plum or red when applied. 

The only drawback to these lip glosses is the minty scent, it isn't overwhelming or nauseating but it does take a few ticks getting used to.

Also for your viewing pleasure, I've done a YT video on my entire lip gloss collection....

Push & Pur Pull

Good morning peeps!!

I am so not with it today, I am majorly suffering from sinusitis and pressure. I am desperately going to try to get some relief today from antibiotics, I am mainly experiencing pressure in the bridge of my nose and behind my eyes when I move my eyeballs around quickly.

I managed to do my nails last night in a fairly lit room. I am wearing a purple neon polish from OPI's "Little Bits of Neon" collection, this one is "Push & Pur Pull". The pink polish is also by OPI and it's called "Feeling Hot Hot Hot".

Wish me luck with my sinus relief, have a great day!!
