In a Lilly Bit

March 31st , 2014 

Hello everyone! I'm back with another easy Spring Mani!
This mani was inspired by !
The orange she used was a more peachy than mine 
But I think it still looks great!
I love how vibrant the colors are & how much it stands out for such a simple manicure design.
All you have to do is grab a base colors & once that has dried..
Lay down some tape in the right spot you want and 
use your second color. 
Hope you enjoy !

Polishes used ;
Julep - Princess Grace
China Glaze - In a Lilly Bit

Not so Butterfly Nails

March 28th, 2014 

Butterfly wings?
Not so much. I sucked at this design but then again I'm not the best at free handing quite yet so its gunna take some practice. The French tips I think I did a fairly good job at but those butterfly wings are horrible!
But other than that I wanted to post anyways so once I finally am good I'll make a post of the difference's. But until then these nails are getting soaked in acetone and off to the next one!

Born Pretty Store Review

Just for youuu!
CHMAC10 Is a 10% off code
Born Pretty Store is by far one of the best online stores I've shopped at for nail art products. But the best thing is they sell more than nail products! When I first saw the prices I was like wow is this really 'quality' stuff? And it is! Its amazing for such a little price you pay youll be amazed at what a good product your recieving ! Born Pretty Store is a Hong Kong based website so just be patient & you will recieve your products. They offer worldwide free shipping but thats without a tracking number so if you want to be safe pay the $3 for the tracking number. Its the cheapest shipping I've ever paid for! 
My last purchase from BPS was a few stamping plate's, a stamper & scraper, black & white nail art stripers, some rhinestones, nail tip guides, & a ring for $1 something!

I also just placed an order today with a $10 coupon I won in their recent contest ! Follow them on blogspot or G+ for all the latest in giveaways & new products.
I got some organe wood sticks , striping tape, water decals , stamping polish, & a necklace.
Go check them out I promise you will be amazed at everything they have !
I've placed 3 orders since I was introduced to them & will deff be ordering again. 

Much love Born Pretty Store ! 
You have amazing stuff! <3

Cuticle Care.. What's your Remedy?

When it comes down to a Mani your cuticles are so important to keep healthy & maintained at all times. The cuticle is a piece of skin that connects to your nails. Its also a protective barrier because the cuticle covers the cells that helps grow your nails. Not caring for them can lead to unhealthy nails & cuticles.

Here's a few tips on Cuticle Care;

1. DO NOT CUT CUTICLES! It is very important that you do not cut or bite your cuticles because it protects your nails. Therefore if you bite them it may result in some infections. Instead of cutting or biting...
2. PUSH your CUTICLES BACK! At times that may be hard so for best results do this when your nails are wet or with cuticle oil to soften.
3. ALWAYS MOISTURIZE. Your hands and nails get very dry very easily so always have a moisterizor on hand. Wether your on the go or at homr keep one in your bag or closr to your bed. Its so easy to do atleast 5 times a day & only takes seconds.

I just ordered Julep's - Vanish Cuticle Softener & Remover
I've read some really amazing reviews about this product & just made me want to buy it so bad.
Deff going to give this bad boy a review when it arrives!

These are a few products I use at all times !

March 06th, 2014

Today's design was inspired by a photo I saw on Pinterest, but also by G+'s Nail Polish Queens Community  - Weekely Challenge. This weeks challenge is Cute Animal Nails. Without this challenge I probably would have never tried an animal design but thats why I love doing these challenges because they take you out of your comfort zone.
Piglet's are one of my favorite animals so this design was perfect for my likings. I am very satisfied with the outcome, i think their so cuteee !
Hope you like them too :)
