china glaze – for audrey (my favoriteeee nail polish โ™ฅ)

china glaze – white on white

color club – front row diva

andddd, last but not least!

WOOSTER & PRINCE‘sย pretty personal accessories from katerine d. ๐Ÿ™‚

they’re so cute! the patterns are designed by amy ormond who wasย inspired by vintage prints.

emery boards come in a trio pack ($4.95) and the pocket mirror ($5.95) has a message inside!

they have other designs as well. ๐Ÿ™‚ just thought i’d mention that the mirrors will need some T.L.C. because it’s made of paper.. so if you’re the type of person who prefers to be able to just chuck it in a bag, this might not be for you! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ on the other hand, they are thin and compact and have a very detailed art featured on every inch of the product ๐Ÿ™‚ i think these would make really nice gifts / party favors.

now moving on to the 4 way nail buffer that Jessica from Born Pretty sent me ๐Ÿ™‚

step 1: file nails! i wouldn’t recommend if you want to file a lot because this is a very fine grain. it’s better for touch ups, after 1 or 2 uses you probably will have to dispose of it.

step 2,3: sand nail surface!

step 4: buff surface ๐Ÿ™‚

dull ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


i wouldn’t recommend using this too often (eg every day).. you are sanding off your nail after all– so you’re thinning your nail ๐Ÿ˜ฎ though you probably won’t be doing that anyway! one buffing is enough for 2-3 weeks for me~
