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

Julep Maven It Girl Post

8 Jan

I posted the Julep $0.01 deal a few days ago and just wanted to let everyone know that I got my box!

I know you’re curious. :)

 

The box came with…

3 nail colors ( L-R: Diane (vampy jelly forest green), Trina (vampy aubergine shimmer), Helena (creme fuschia)

1 nail top coat

1 sample of Julep’s hand scrub

1 sample of Julep’s hand lotion

1 mini container of nail glitter

all wrapped nicely in a black paper bag with a red ribbon for a penny. :)

Trina is my favorite! The polishes were all very pigmented, Diane was a bit sheer though so that took around 3 coats. I was very pleased with how all of colors dried with an ultra glossy finish! The only thing I dislike about Julep polishes is that they are quite expensive… each polish costs about $14.00 on their website– but their polishes are not the standard .5 oz! They are .27 oz. I have yet to see a Julep nail color that is special enough to purchase for that price.

Sorry for the messy application! I was in a rush.

Nail Deco Of The Week #84

3 Dec

Hi everyone! Sorry for being MIA for the past few weeks. :( I’ve been really busy with work and school. My current work place allow allows for neutral pinks and nudes for nail color so that’s why I haven’t been doing any new designs. ;_; Anyway! I managed to do something this Wednesday. (I’ll have to take it off soon for work.. darn..)

 

Color Club – Vintage Couture

Also using some of the mini flat back pearls from Born Pretty (see next post for review)
