Nail Deco Of The Week #114 + DIY Flats + Custom Minion

6 Aug

Frankened hot coral pink

Tokidoki Nail Polish SANDY (glitter)

Bindi inspired nail art :)

Also! My local H&M in west LA had a sale on accessories this weekend (extra 50% off all accessories!)

I grabbed 3 pairs of flats for $2.00 each. :) They’re pretty comfortable and great for some DIY projects!

I painted clouds on one pair last night with white acrylic paint. The bows were removed and replaced with gold paper fasteners. :)

 

I also have one pair of hot pink patent flats! I’m not sure how I want to customize these. Any ideas?

Oh, and here’s my other project! Customizing the McDonald Despicable Me 2 toys!

The fire alarm minion that yells “Bee-do Bee-do!”

Suncoat Water Based Nailpolish Review

6 Sep

Hi everyone!

I was sent a bottle of Suncoat’s water based nail polish. :)

What’s great about water-based nail polish is that it is non-toxic. :) That also means that the polish is free of nail polish fumes!

In order to remove the polish, you just peel it off.

 

The color above is named “Eye candy”.

Pros: non toxic, fast dry time, NO SMELL!, easy removal, nice color selection

Cons: sheer– needed 3-4 coats,  easy removal (not ideal for long lasting mani’s), edge wear

 

Nail Deco Of The Week #111 / Free $5 Sephora GC

28 Aug

Sorry I’ve been MIA again! But I’m back with good news!

If you download the app called “Wrapp” in the Andriod or iTunes market you can send send $5-10 giftcards for free!

If you want to send yourself a giftcard, you’ll need to tell your friend to send you one back. :)

You can also access your account @ https://www.wrapp.com

The free giftcards should say “FREE” next to them, so make sure you’re selecting the right one!

From my screen I could select from $5 Sephora, $5 Office Depot, $5 Gap, $5 Threadless, $10 Fab.com… those are just to name a few of the companies that I’m familiar with. There are a few more too. :)

You just show your smartphone to the cashier with the Wrapp app open and they will type in the #’s. You can also use the Sephora code online, but then you’d have to pay shipping for orders under $50.

I popped by my local Sephora @ Santa Monica this weekend and grabbed some Tokidoki stuff on sale!

My boyfriend offered to let me use his GC so I got to use two $5 GC’s that day! Lucky me. :)

Tokidoki nail stickers +$2.00
Tokidoki nail confetti +$4.00
$5 Wrapp giftcard: -$5.00
Total: $1.56 out of pocket!

Tokidoki eyeshadow in Carnivora: +$6.00
$5 Wrapp giftcard: -$5.00
Total: $1.56 out of pocket!

I believe Tokidoki is doing some kind of clearance on their line at Sephora? The entire section was marked down! I saw some cute brush sets for $14 and mini MU palettes for $4.00 that I kind of regret not buying!

Tokidoki nail confetti – Savana (pink + gold glitter)

Each bottle comes with a small sheet of nail stickers (plastic wrapped to the bottles)!

Tokidoki nail confetti – Savana
China glaze – For Audrey
(Do you like my Marc Jacobs Daisy mini in the background? I LOVE perfume minis! :))

Some closeups of the other items that I purchased:

I hope the Wrapp app deal works for you all too! :D

Nail Polish Haul

7 Mar

Nail polish haul from bloom.com and drugstore.com! :)

Essie – As gold as it gets (gold glitter topcoat)

Essie – Orange! It’s obvious. A bright red-orange cream. This is my first orange nail polish!

Zoya – Chloe (Fleck glitter!)

Zoya – Bevin => a dusty light jade cream. Also a close dupe for OPI – Thanks a windmillion!

OPI – Wooden shoe like to know (brown with copper glitter)

OPI – I have a herring problem => periwinkle blue with fine silver glitter

Revlon – Whimsical => a dupe for Deborah Lippmann – Glitter in the air! a pastel blue jelly with pink and blue glitters
I actually bought this one off of drugstore.com, not bloom. :D

Oh and if anyone wanted to see a China glaze – For audrey (my all time favorite color!) & Zoya – Bevin comparison (Bevin appears lighter in the bottle than when applied):

Now for swatches! Sorry I didn’t swatch all the colors,I’ll try to do that later when I can find the time! :)

Zoya – Bevin. Excellent dry time and smooth application! (2 coats)

Zoya – Bevin with Essie – As gold as it gets layered over

Zoya – Bevin with Revlon – Whimsical layered over! The glitter is rather hard to control. I had to keep moving the glitters around in order to achieve the look that I wanted. This also contributed to the streaks of baby blue. D: Whimsical’s not the best, but it’s still a nice cheap alternative if you want Glitter in the air!

Zoya – Bevin with Essie – A cut above and Revlon – Whimsical layered over it

Also wanted to show you guys my plant! We had a de-stress event on campus where they let us paint pots and plant flowers. :)

Can you tell that I have a strong color preference? :P

Surprise! Painted the inside too. Bright orange!

I have no idea what seeds they gave me… but they’re beginning to sprout already so I’ll find out soon! :)

This LA sunshine is pretty amazing tosomeone who grew up in a one-season-city (ahem, San Francisco). Everything that I tried to grow in San Francisco pretty much failed. Though I suppose it may have had a lot more to do with my incompetence than SF’s weather!

I feel like I’m turning into a plant hoarder. I’ll show you guys my other mini plants perhaps in my next post? :D

OPI warm & fozzie swatch + JULEP Deal!

22 Dec

OPI – warm & fozzie

Annnnd! If anyone is interested in trying out Julep Polishes, there’s a deal going on right now!

You can sign up for a free starter kit (priced at $19.99) for just $0.01 shipping included with code “SHAREON”.

You basically take a quiz to figure out what type of style you have and they will pick out a set that fits you best.

The quiz can be taken  here: http://www.julep.com/mavens/quiz/

If you do not like your results, you can go here: http://www.julep.com/mavens-1?Page=1&Items=12 to view more choices.

Use the code “SHAREON” to bring your $19.99 order down to 1 cent!
Not sure how long this deal will go on for! I just saw it on Slickdeals (courtesy of poster deliria) and felt that I should pass this on. :)

Now Julep IS a monthly subscription thing, so if you don’t want them to continue to charge your card after your first kit/box you’ll need to call in and cancel!

Hope this helps someone! I just placed an order for the It Girl kit (picture above).
