Black Out

Hi everyone!  I've seen some awesome black jelly manis lately, so I decided to try one!


I made my own black jelly by adding about 10 drops of KBShimmer Eclipse to KBShimmer Clearly on top.  I applied two coats of the black jelly, followed by one coat of SV.


Using a wedge sponge, I added a gradient to the tips with Eclipse and then paired it with my dotting tool for the polka dot pattern.  I finished with OPI Matte Top Coat.


I love the end result!  I can't wait to try some other black jelly designs!
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!

Old Factory Candle Review & Giveaway

Hi everyone!  I am just crazy about candles, so I jumped at the chance to try these Old Factory Candles.  
The trio that I selected is called 50 Shades of Grey - I know, right?!  This set consists of Leather, Jasmine Bubbles, and Vanilla Sex.  Each candle will burn for 15-20 hours, which really surprised me since they're only 2 ounces each - but it's definitely accurate.  They burn really slowly!  I am just mad for Leather and Vanilla Sex.  They made my house smell amazing!  The Jasmine Bubbles was a little on the sweet side for me, and did have a light soapy undernote to it as well.


I am so happy with these candles though, and I'm really looking forward to trying some of the other sets as well.  I'm giving away a set of your choosing to one of you!!  You can choose from: 50 Shades of Grey, New Born Baby, Coffee Shop, Fall Harvest, Fresh & Clean, Happy Holidays, Man Cave, Romance, Spa Day, Vacation, and Winter Wonderland.  This giveaway will be open to the US only.
Good luck!

Nail Technology: Week 4

Hi everyone!  Another week of school down!  This week I continued to work on my pink & white sculpts, and then I started incorporating some glitters into the polymer as well!  Toward the end of the week, I started to practice fill-ins as well.


Here's my first set of pink and whites of the week.


I switched from the white polymer to the clear and added some pink glitter for these sparkling tips!



To start my fill in practice, I drew on some "cuticle lines" and then worked my way up.


Here's a pink and white sculpt that I added a fill-in to.


My school had a Mardi Gras mask contest on Fat Tuesday!  There were so many awesome masks!!  I was so excited to see that mine made it into the display case!  (I painted my mask base with all Girly Bits shades!!!)

I had such a fun week!  I even did my first pedicure on another student!  I'm so psyched to see what next week will bring!
