Pink Overload


 Hey everyone! I have some overly pink nails to share with you all haha. I started by painting all my nails (except my ring finger) with two coats of Zoya - Scarlet [I think my bottle is mislabelled as it is much lighter than the colour shown on their website]. On my ring finger, I used two coats of Beyond the Nail - Pale Pink Pearl. When they were all dried, I went over it with one coat of Beyond the Nail - Pink Friday. When it was dried, I topped my nails off with PRO-FX - Complete 3 (top coat), and stuck on a Heart nail glam piece from Beyond the Nail (currently out of stock).

Holographic Halloween (picture heavy)


With flash against my wall

Hey everyone! Halloween is almost a month away and I figured I'd have a head start on my Halloween nails, especially since we have to start selling our items ahead of time so people can buy them in time for Halloween. For our Fall/Halloween collection, we've made 6 polishes (one of them being Pumpkin Spice - a burnt orange holographic jelly nail polish). 

For my nails, I started with 3 coats of Beyond the Nail - Pumpkin Spice. When it was completely dry, I placed 2 Bat Nail Decals from Beyond the Nail (in black). I went over my nails with one coat of PRO-FX - Complete 3.

A couple of months ago when we released our Summer Galaxy Collection (all those fun neon, jelly, & holographic polishes), I sent them to simplynailogical. She was GENIUS in discovering that our polishes could double as a HOLO TOPPER!! So since our new Pumpkin Spice has the same formula, I decided to do my nails with the same technique! Below I have my nails painted with a black or white base and ONE thin coat of Pumpkin Spice over it.

BornPrettyStore Review: Real Dried Flowers


Another review for BornPrettyStore! This time it's for their Dried Flowers. I did my nails a couple of weeks ago (see here) with some dried flowers I had found in my stash and I loved the outcome, so I was excited to receive more dried flowers from BornPrettyStore.


Although the listing online says you will receive 12 different colours of flowers, I only received yellow ones. Hopefully if you order, you will get all 12.
EDIT: BornPrettyStore contacted me and said that it should have been 12 colours, so if you order this product, don't worry about not getting all the colours!


I started by painting my nails two coats of  Maybelline - Go Go Green. When it was dried, I put a layer of PRO-FX - Complete 3, and placed the dried flowers on top of my nails. I gently pushed them onto my nails to ensure they stuck down. I cut off the excess flowers that didn't stick to my nails. When all completed, I put a thick layer of PRO-FX - Complete 3 ontop to seal everything in!

The flowers were a little tricky to use just because they were fragile and would crumple if too much pressure was given, but other than that.. easy to use!




This set of dried flowers is available HERE for $6.08.

BornPrettyStore Review: Purple and Pink Floral Water Decals

No flash, inside my light box
(sorry for it being blurry)
 Hi everyone! I have another product review from BornPrettyStore! A couple of days ago, I shared a look using BornPrettyStore's Pink Floral Water Decals and today I have another set of water decals to share! These ones are their Purple and Pink Floral Water Decals. I think I like these decals a lot better than the last ones (but only because of the image.. they both go on flawlessly and look great!). 




I started by painting my nails three coats of Beyond the Nail - Shooting Star. When they were dried, I cut out the images I wanted and one-by-one, I placed them in water for 10 seconds. I then pulled them out of the water, and slid the decal off the paper backing. Carefully, with tweezers, I placed the water decal onto my nails and lightly smoothed it out. I continued to do this for each nail, and then put one coat of PRO-FX - Complete 3 (as a topcoat) over each nail. While still wet, I placed one Silver Round Nail Stud on the tip of each nail.

BornPrettyStore Review: Pink Floral Water Decals



Hi everyone! BornPrettyStore has sent me some more products to review for them, and to share with all of you! Since I started using water decals, I can't get over how easy they are to use and how cute the designs are. One of the items I picked from their website where these Rose Patterned Water Decals.




These were super easy to apply. I started by painting my nails two coats of Beyond the Nail - Pale Pink. When they were dried, I cut out the images I wanted and one-by-one, I placed them in water for 10 seconds. I then pulled them out of the water, and slid the decal off the paper backing. Carefully, with tweezers, I placed the water decal onto my nails and lightly smoothed it out. I continued to do this for each nail, and then put one coat of PRO-FX - Complete 3 (as a topcoat) over each nail.
