Born Pretty Store's Nail Stamping Plate BP-02 Review

Hey Lovelies! For today's look I wanted to get a little funky with a lace nail look! So what better plate to show case then the  Born Pretty Store plate BP-02. This plate has several different lace designs to choose from and I will be using the top left lace design for this look.


For this look I used three coats of Deborah Lippmann's Sugar Daddy. I then went in with Sinful Color's Black on Black and stamped Born Pretty Store's plate BP-02. This plate was such a joy to work with and I got a clean and crisp stamping transfer ever single time I used it! 


I definitely suggest stopping over and checking out their nail art section and see all the great nail goodies that they offer and don't forget to use the coupon code JFL91 for 10% off!

Essie's Parka Perfect

Hey Lovelies! Today's post is a little out of the ordinary because I forgot to take pictures of this nail look after I painted them and once I realized it it was to late to get a really good picture.what I want you all to take away from this post is how durable this polish is! I only had one chip on the side of my pointer nail and a little bit of wear on the tips. So after four days, no top coat, dishes, TONS of house work and even sledding I present to you Parka Perfect by Essie!


Parka Perfect is a dusty blue grey with a subtle silver and blue shimmer. This color is perfect for these chilly January days and I seriously can't wait to try out some awesome stamping with this color!

Born Pretty Store's Nail Stamping Plate BP-L008 Review

Hey Lovelies! I am extremely excited to be reviewing a new stamping plate for you guys! Today's plate comes from the Born Pretty Store which is an online website where you can find anything and everything you need to have show stopping nails! Today I will be showing you two beautiful nail looks that I created with stamping plate BP-L008. So let's get this party started by letting me introduce to you plate BP-L008



For my first look I started out with two coats of Sinful Color's Black On Black for my pointer and pinky finger and two coats of OPI Nicole's Carried Away. I then went in with Black On Black and stamped the 6th image on the top row. 


For my second look I stared out with one coat of China Glaze Something Sweet. Once that was dry I went in with my makeup sponge and used the gradient technique with Something Sweet and Zoya's LARA. Finally I went in with Sinful Colors Black on Black and stamped the 1st image on the top row. 


I am so impressed with this Born Pretty Store nail plate. I love that they added the pink backing to the large plate because I feel it gives the plate a more visual appeal and I always hated when I would be handling a plate and I could feel the rough metal edges. Also I'm very impressed with how this plate is etched. Lately I have been finding that some of my plates are having a hard time transferring from the plate to my stamper. When I feel the plate it just feels smooth like there is no design etched in. With this plate I feel each and every line and curve in the image, In conclusion I HIGHLY recommend this plate!

 Make sure you swing on over to the Born Pretty Store and check out all their nail art supplies! BUT WAIT...THERE'S MORE! If you order from them make sure you use this code!

OPI's Liquid Sand- The Impossible

Hey Lovelies! So my brother-in-laws girlfriend is down right AMAZING ( I love you Jen) and she got me SEVERAL new and beautiful nail polishes for Christmas and this is the first beauty that I tried out! OPI's The Impossible is a pinkish red polish with star and small hex glitter mixed in. I was a little sad that I was not skilled enough to get any of the star glitter on a single nail! I am still new to working with the liquid sand line so hopefully with time I will master it and get a star glitter hahaha! To achieve this look I used two coats but I could have gotten away with only one (which is AMAZEBALLS!!).  


Have a wonderful Weekend guys!!!

Mermaid Nails

Hey lovelies! I don't know about you guys but it is colder then a eskimo's bare booty on a seat of ice up here in Ohio! So for this weekends nails I went to my happy place (which is a tropical island with only me and my full service waiter named Juan) and I created these fabulous mermaid nails. 


To get this look I stared out with one thin coat of Sinful Colors Black on Black and two coats of Metamorphosis by Color Club. Once that was COMPLETELY DRY I went in with my stamping plate MASH-39 and used my Black on Black to stamp the scales image. 


To finish off the look I sealed it all in with my top coat to bring the mermaid scales to life!

INCOCO Nail Strips: BLING BLING

Hey Lovelies! The other weekend I went to a wedding and of course I was running around with my head cut off trying to get ready because I got sucked into a movie my husband was watching.... so I blame him lol! I didn't have enough time to stamp my nails like I had planned so I decided to try out these nail strips from Incoco. BLING BLING was the perfect touch to bring my whole look together!  They were very easy to apply and stretched to fit my nails perfectly. I applied a top coat to them and they lasted a little over a week which is VERY impressive! I highly recommend this brand of nail strips. Check out their website for other amazing choices at www.incoco.com
