Celestial T's in a Tizz

*Purchased by me*


Hello!  So I guess you could say that today's mani is from the vault.  I was doing some clean up in my picture files and found this that I had never shown you.  This is Celestial T's in a Tizz.  I don't remember how many coats this was (I know, bad Sara!) but I do remember really liking the formula and application.  This color is gorgeous!  I gave you a shade shot at the end so you could get a better idea of the green color.



I hope you have a great Saturday!

Until next time...

Born Pretty Store Stamper Review

*Press Sample*


Hello!  Today I have a review of a stamper from Born Pretty Store.  The stamper was sent for review.  I purchased all the polishes and plates used today.  The stamper is a rectangular, which I love.  It's not as hard as my konad stamper but not anywhere as squishy as my xl stamper.  I used two of Rica's stamping polishes, light purple and pink.  As you can see I have some incomplete images on my nails.  Two things caused this, one, you have to roll the stamper across the nail.  Just pressing straight down didn't work like it does with my squishy stamper.  Second, the stamper was having trouble picking up full images.  You can see that most of my images are missing the very edge.  No matter what I tried I couldn't get nice crisp edges.



I'm not ready to give up on this rectangle stamper.  I really want it to work for me.  So I'm going to keep practicing and see if it's me or the stamper.  Born Pretty has a ton of different nail art items.  Click here to check out the shop and here to go right to the stamper.  The code FEMJ61 will save you 10% on regular priced items.  I hope you all have a great day!

Until next time...

Messy Jessi Porcelain Berry

*Purchased by me*


Hey guys!  Today I have a new to the blog brand, Messy Jessi.  This is my first time ordering from Messy Jessi and I couldn't be more pleased.  The maker is in a small Arizona nail lovers group with me and when she posted the pre-order info I couldn't resist Porcelain Berry.  You guys know of my epic love for this color family.  Porcelain Berry was so smooth and creamy (I always think of butter when I say that).  I used two coats and top coat for photos today.  My accent nail is Salon Perfect Mad About Mod.  I was super worried about bubbling on this one after my issues with a similar glitter from them but I'm happy to report this came out well.



I really have nothing but great things to say about my first experience with Messy Jessi.  Doesn't hurt that we are in the same state so I got my polish super fast.  If you guys want to check out the shop for yourselves chick here.  Sally's Sportscar is next on my list from this shop.  Have a great Monday!

Until next time...

NailNation 3000 Stay Off the Grass

*Purchased by me*


It's Friday!  It's Friday!  It's Friday!  I'm doing my happy dance because it's Friday!  Okay I'm done now.  Today I have a gorgeous holo mani for you.  This is NailNation 3000 Stay Off the Grass with a Hit Polish Nail Lacquer Purple Reign accent.  The first coat of Stay Off the Grass was a little thin but the second coat made it perfect.  Maria of NailNation sure can make some great holos.




I'm loving this shade of purple as well.  I will definitely be wearing this as a full mani here soon.  Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

Until next time...
