Pastel & Studs

Hi everyone! 

I also bought a Japanese nail polish when I bought the Japanese nail art book a few weeks ago. 

I bought Pa A134 a sheer shimmery mint polish. 

Actually it's really sheer so I layered it over Orly's Gumdrop.  

Here's the lovely Gumdrop on its own:

I added some pastel studs from Born Pretty Store. 

For some reason this combination reminded me of Punky Brester.

Thanks for reading! 

**Pastels studs were sent for review from Born Pretty Store. Please see my full post here.

Picture Polish Mask-a-rade + Galaxy nails

Hi everyone! 

I hope you are having a good week! 

Lately, I've been trying to get through some of the untried polishes in my collection. 

I have many untrieds *hangs head in shame*. 

One of my untrieds was Picture Polish Mask-a-rade which I think is now discontinued.

Easter Crosshatch

Hi everyone! 

Easter is around the corner! 

I'm running out time to paint some Easter nail art! 

I thought I would go for something simple and painted this crosshatch design.

DIY: Scented Nail Polish Remover

Hi everyone!

If you're a polish addict like me I bet you go through A LOT of nail polish remover and sometimes they can be quite smelly! 

I thought I'd share with you how I mix a scented and moisturizing nail polish remover. 

The recipe I've been using is the same formulation of Zoya's Remove +. 

I've been mixing faux Remove + because I ran out.  Don't get me wrong I love Remove +.  It's a great product but the lavender scent was really starting to bother me.

See not a drop to spare!

This is a full-sized bottle of Recovery.

Maybelline Street Art: Blue Beats

Hi everyone! 

I picked up a few of these Maybelline Color Show Street Art matte glitters recently from CVS. I felt they were similar from the Sephora Formula X matte glitters but with a cheaper price tag. 

First up, Blue Beats.
