Misa Green with Envy

Thursday, February 23, 2017

Hi everyone! Today I have a swatch post that I've had in my drafts folder since last year. I just had other things to post but I still have a few polishes that I swatched last year that I have yet to publish. Here's just one of a few so let's see the color.

Misa Green with Envy is a bright lime green creme. The best way to describe this color is that it reminds me of Shrek when I see it. It's a pretty unique shade in my collection so I'm quite pleased with the color even though I don't wear it a lot. The formula wasn't the best though which is strange since the other Misa polishes I own have a pretty good formula to them. This one applied kind of thick and I did notice some bubbling if I don't apply it carefully. This is two coats.

I like this color a lot but I wished the formula was a little better. Since it's kind of hard to apply, I tend not to wear it on my nails much other than using it in my nail art designs. What do you think?

Blue and Purple Lines Double Stamping

Monday, February 20, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I've been liking the look of a double stamping manicure so here's another pretty simple one I did. I went with some more muted colors and I quite like how it looks. So far I've only double stamped using the same image but I am planning to try out this technique with different images to get a more layered effect. Anyways, let's see the manicure.

Blue and Purple Lines Double Stamping Nail Art

I used Ciaté Cream Soda on my ring and middle nails. I double stamped with Ya Qin An 23 and Ya Qin An 25 with stamping plate BP-67 from Born Pretty Store. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your entire order. For the rest of the nails, I used China Glaze Electric Beat. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.

The double stamping turned out great which made me happy to see. I think the blue and purple color combination is nice too even though the purple looked pretty faint against the grey base polish. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by the Season

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by the season. Since today is Valentine's Day, I thought it would be appropriate to do a Valentine's Day theme design. I don't have a lot of free time this year but I wanted to at least create one Valentine's Day theme manicure and the theme today kind of gave me that chance to.

Red and Pink Hearts Nail Art

For the ring and middle nail, I used American Apparel Coney Island. I created some hearts using a dotting tool with Sally Hansen I Pink I Can and Gosh Hot Coral. For the rest of the nails, I used Wet n' Wild Candy-licious and applied Nicole by OPI Haley Good Lookin'... on top of that. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.

My freehanded hearts aren't the best but I still think it looks pretty cute. You can also change up the colors of the hearts if the pink and red combination isn't your thing too. What do you think?

Dearberry Today Nail Lacquer #32 Twilight

Monday, February 13, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! My hair has been getting pretty long so I got my aunt to cut it short for me over the weekend. I've had the same hairstyle for a long time though that I'm thinking I need to change it up next time. If anyone knows of a good hair salon in Vancouver, please let me know. I think I'm going to get it cut professionally next time since I kind of want something different. I might even color my hair, who knows. Anyways, let's see what blue polish I'm sharing today.

Dearberry Today Nail Lacquer #32 Twilight is a shimmer dark blue with silver shimmers in it. What's interesting about this color is that it doesn't really have much of a shine to it by itself so if you want that glossy look, you will have to apply a top coat. I received this polish is a Memebox I purchased a long time ago. I actually quite like the polish a lot too. The formula was great on it  that I could have even gotten away with one coat if I applied it on more thickly. This polish has a wider brush on it which I find makes the application on it easier. I also think the color is perfect to wear for the fall and winter season. This is two coats.

Overall, I'm very pretty pleased with this polish. I would totally pick up more colors from Dearberry if I ever come across them too. What do you think?

Some very exciting products that I'm happy to try out. I'm probably most excited about the Avon Perfect Eyebrow Kit since I've mainly been using an eyebrow pencil to fill in my brows so I'm intrigued to use the powder and setting wax in the little kit. It also seems pretty handy to travel with too.

*Avon sent the products as a PR sample. My opinion is 100% honest.*
