Milani Splash of Blue

Press Sample

I have a short and easy design for Friday!  I used two more of the new Milani blues to create a simple taped manicure.

To create this look I used:
Blue Print - a gorgeous, juicy blue.

Peri-wink - a pretty light blue with subtle shimmer.

After applying two coats of Peri-wink, I taped off the sides and sponged Blue Print down the center.

A simple manicure that highlights two beautiful blues!

You can pick up these shades at Kmart, CVS, Walgreens and Fred Meyers stores.  Or you can purchase online

Bundle Monster Glittering City Lights

Press Sample

Alright glitter-lovers! I have a fun selection of glitters from Bundle Monster to share with you today!  Here is the Glittering City Lights Collection!

Bottle Service - black and white hex glitter with white bar glitter.

I Bleed Glitter - various sized gold hex glitter.

Sin City - gold, green blue and red hex glitter.

Girls Night Out - red, blue and green hex glitter.

Champagne Room - white hex and bar glitter.

Liquid Courage - blue, silver and purple hex glitter. (hardest to apply)

This is a fun collection of glitters with some fantastic mixes.  I only had to apply one coat of each glitter, however there are some things you should know whey applying.  First, there is no problem getting glitter on your brush but be careful to not overload your brush.  An overloaded brush can make application difficult.  Second, you might want to use the dab method to get some of the larger glitters where you want them.  They all applied well, expect for Liquid Courage.  There was no swatching Liquid Courage.  I had to use the dab method for better coverage.  Any of these glitters would be a great accent for any manicure!

Zoya Fall 2014 Entice Collection

Press Sample

Today's design was inspired by Zoya's new Entice Collection.  This collection consists of the perfect fall shades with the perfect formula! I knew I needed a design to show these shades off.  The first thing that came to mind was a fall tweed look.

In this look:

I applied two coats of each of these shades.  Each applied flawlessly.  I was super impressed with everything about this collection.  I see them featuring heavily in my fall manicures!

Margo - gorgeous red plum.  A favorite.

Veronica - brilliant wine.

Ryan - classic indigo.  Another favorite, but I wouldn't call it an indigo because it is lacking that purple tone.  But it is still a beautiful blue, and you know how I feel about blue!

Genevieve - leather grey.  Also a favorite.  This grey has a great jelly-like formula that is fantastic!

Claire - rich burgundy.  

Nyssa - milk chocolate brown.

And my design!

You will not be disappointed with this collection!  
Bring on fall!!

$9 (US) Available on and at finer salons and spas.

Milani Waterfall

Press Sample

I was in the mood for something girly with an edge.  After looking through my pile of new Milanis, I think I came up with something that fits that description.

In this look:

Club Lights - pink glitter.  I applied two coats and as you can see this is better as an accent.

Pink Beige - soft dusty pink,  I applied two coats.  Good coverage, just not sure it is good on me.

Charcoal Charm - dark grey shimmer.  I applied two coats but I found the formula to be a tad thin.

I put them all together to create this glitter encrusted waterfall.  I love the charcoal behind the glitter.

The glitter is my favorite part of this design.  It is like a magical waterfall!
You can pick up these shades at Kmart, CVS, Walgreens and Fred Meyers stores.  Or you can purchase online at
