Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate Review

*Press Sample*

Hello!  I have a quick post today reviewing a Born Pretty Store stamping plate Qgirl-027.  I struggled with this plate because the images are so big.  Now you guys have seen my nails.  I have good sized nail beds albeit a bit curved.  I was only able to get partial images on my nails.  So I went back and forth on how to do it.  I went with just some half images.  There were a few images that refused to come up off the plate.  These two I used came up very well.  I used a black cream polish to stamp over Girly Bits Stormy Skies.





You can find this plate here on bornprettystore.com.  Remember to use code FEMJ61 to save 10% on regular priced purchases.  Thanks for stopping by.

OPI Infinite Shine Review

*Press Sample*

Hi guys!  I have six polishes from the OPI Infinite Shine line to show you today.  Infinite Shine is a three step process.  First is the Primer, then the Infinite Shine polish and lastly the Gloss top coat.  This gives you the look and long wear of gel polish without the special light to cure it and removal process.  These were all super shiny and done with two coats of polish.  I feel like there was a bit of a learning curve with these, at least for me.  On the first few when I put on the top coat it was dragging around the polish a bit.  By the end I seemed to have it under control.  So lets move on to why your here, the pictures!

SinfulColors Spring Fever 2015 Review (partial)

*Press Sample*

Hey all!  I have a few polishes to show you today from SinfulColors.  These are from their spring 2015 offerings.  The five polishes I have today are all meant to be layered.

First up is Prized Plume layered over a black cream.  Just one coat gave me this gorgeous blue shimmer.  So much love for this!

This is one coat of Flight to See layered over a black cream.  Oh my goodness you guys!  This was amazing in person.  I think this may be my next pedi choice.

Next is Sheer Flight layered over a black cream in the first photo.  In the second one it's layered over OPI Lost My Bikini in Molokini.  It's amazing how different it looks layered over the purple.

The next polish is from the Citrus Twist collection.  It's Ring the Belini layered over China Glaze Orange You Hot on two nails and a black cream on the others.

OPI Hawaii Collection

*Press Sample*

Hello!  I'm so excited for today's post.  I have the OPI Hawaii collection for you.  This is a 12 piece collection so I'm going to dive right in.  Our weather here has been a little off so I tried to get a sun and shade picture for each polish but some have just a shade shot because it was overcast.

First up is OPI Do You Take Lei Away.  This is two coats and top coat.  The formula was very good, easy to control and very even.  I have perfect mannequin hands when I wear this.

This is OPI Suzi Shops & Island Hops.  This needed three coats to be opaque and even.  The formula and application are about what you expect with pale pinks.

Here is OPI Is Mai Tai Crooked?  Surprisingly I loved this one.  It's a nice soft orangey color.  I used two coats and top coat for the photos.  Fantastic formula for this.

This is OPI Aloha From OPI.  This was super smooth and easy to apply, two coats and top coat made it perfect.

Next is OPI Lost My Bikini in Molokini.  This is my favorite type of purple, not too dark and not too light.  I used two coats and top coat.  The formula on this was just like the others in this collection.

Here is OPI My Gecko Does Tricks.  This one needed three coats to even out.  As you can see it is a bit brush strokish but not anything super terrible.

OPI Hello Hawaii Ya? is one of my favorites from this collection, a nice dusty purple.  I used two coats and top coat for this.

Next is OPI This Color's Making Waves.  I love this polish!  I needed three coats for it to be opaque.  It was hard to capture all the shiny goodness of this one.

OPI Pineapples Have  Peelings Too! is an odd duck of a polish.  I like the base color but it has brush stroke issues as well.  The little glitters came freely out of the bottle.  I had to work a bit harder for the larger pieces.  I used three coats and top coat.

Next up is OPI That's Hula-rious!, a nice pale minty green.  Like the pink above this one needed three coats to fully even out.  Totally worth it because it's so pretty.
