COLOR CHANGING NAIL POLISH FROM WISH --DOES IT WORK??

I'm sure by now you have heard of Wish right? 
It's a shopping app that has incredibly low prices! ...I've watched several YouTube videos from people who have bought wedding dresses, clothes, hair extensions, etc. on Wish, and review the products and let you know if it's really worth spending your money, even though it's so inexpensive...and now I have some Thermal Nail Polishes to test out for you guys! :) 
*Fingers crossed!*

I was contacted by someone selling on Wish to review some Thermal polishes from their store, and I decided to give them a try. I picked out 4 polishes and to be honest, I did not have high expectations of them at all! It's not that I don't believe Wish has good products. It's more like, I don't see how something so cheap could be good quality. So let me share with you my opinion of these thermal polishes.

**These products were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**




Up first is this fun Pink to Purple thermal polish (It's purple when it's cold and pink when it's warm). This is the first one I tested and I was extremely surprised by how well the colors change! I've tested some thermal polishes before and felt like you had to dip your hands in ice cold water to boiling water in order to see the smallest change (I didn't actually ever put my hand in boiling water, but you probably get the point. LOL). But this one was noticeable the minute I applied the first coat! 




Next is this gorgeous Sky Blue to Periwinkle blue. I absolutely Loved this color change!! The 2 colors are bold and impressive and so eye catching! 




I want to say this is my favorite one...but I love the first 3 that I seriously think it's a tie between all of them :P This one changes from a very light grey (almost white) to a darker grey, and again, it doesn't take extreme changes in temperature to see the changes.




This is the only 1 of the 4 polishes I was disappointed with. I feel like it would be really pretty, but maybe the formula is wrong, because it doesn't match the pictures in the Wish store (see image below). It's almost like it could be a sheer polish to opaque, which would be fun as well, but it's too streaky to even be a pretty sheer polish.


This is how it should change. So you can tell something might be wrong with the polish I have.

Overall, I really loved these polishes! (minus the last one). They applied easily in 2-3 coats, they dried fast and of course they changed colors within seconds, literally! The only reason I used ice water to change the colors is so I could get good photos of the thermal shift...but if you want to wear the polish and enjoy the color shift, you absolutely can, because my hands were cold when I applied the polish, and then I walked outside in the sun and they instantly changed colors :D that was really fun to watch ;)

If I were to rate these polishes I would probably give them a 4/5 just because of the black polish, they seem like they could be hit or miss...but because they are so inexpensive I think that bumps them up to 5/5. You can't go wrong when they're so inexpensive!

You can find all of these Thermal polishes and more...including Glitter Thermal polishes for $1 each! here: Wish Thermal Polish, and if you try them out let me know what you think!

PINK LACE NAIL ART WITH 3D NAIL CHARMS FROM BEAUTYBIGBANG

Hello again! 

Have  you guys ever seen 3D Nail Charms/Decorations that you think are cute but you have absolutely no idea how its possible to wear them? Because that was me with these decorations :P ...but, I decided I really wanted to figure something out. So I'll let you know how I did it, just in case you ever decide you want to give them a try.

**These products were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**


Direct link --> 3D Pearls
Direct link --> 3D Rhinestones


I've always seen other people use 3D Pearls and 3D rhinestones (that don't have a flat surface), and wondered, "how the heck do they attach them to their nails!?" ...have you ever seen them and thought the same thing? 

I had them sitting around for a month or two and thought about using them a few times before I actually did. So, when I finally decided I was going to use them I decided to go through Instagram and find pictures of other people who have used them and see how they may have attached it to their nails (or hope they mentioned it in their post ;P). @red_iguana_ on Instagram has great videos of how to attach decorations btw.




I decided to do this cute design using one of the new China Glaze Chic Physique polishes. This is Pretty Fit, I applied 2 coats over all of my nails and then stamped Sinful Colors Snow Me White over my thumb, index and middle fingers using Born Pretty Store stamping plate BP-L020.


Once the polish was dry I placed some nail glue (a generous amount) onto the top section of my ring finger where I wanted to place the decorations. I first attached the 2 pearls side by side, and then placed the rhinestones (tip facing in towards pearls) directly in between the spaces above and below the pearls. It didn't quite look complete, so I added these mini silver ball decorations around the edge of the pearls and then took a small paint brush with some topcoat and went around the bottom edges of the decorations (I did not place topcoat over the top). After that was done I quickly and carefully applied topcoat to the rest of the nail.

Then to bring the design together I placed some of the silver ball decorations in the center of the flowers of the lace design, and then I did put topcoat over those decorations because they are small and I felt that if I didn't seal them in they would pop off the first time something touched them.


I wanted to keep these on for awhile to test out how well the decorations would stay on, and I must say that it worked really well! I had them on for a week and not one of the decorations on the ring finger came off (and I work in a Dental office where I wash my hands and wear gloves a lot!). I did have a few of the single silver balls pop off after a few days, but those are easy to pop back on.

So, if you're like me and have been wanting to give 3D charms a try, but you've been hesitant, I suggest you try it! Just make sure you use some nail glue and seal the edges and I think it should last you a good while! ;)  (oh and btw, when I did take them off, it came off in one whole piece!).

WATERCOLOR DANCER DECALS - BEAUTYBIGBANG WATER DECALS

Happy Saturday Lovelies!

Today I am sharing some beautiful water decals with you guys. I recently received these decals along with some other fun goodies I will be sharing with you soon, from BeautyBigBang. BeautyBigBang is an online store specializing in Beauty and Nail products, and the best part is they're very affordable!

These are the decals I'll be sharing with you today!



**I received these products for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy located in the tabs above.**



I didn't want to overpower these decals in any way by adding too many or dressing up the design too much, because the decals are so beautiful! So I opted to go for a simple gradient design pulling colors from the decal and then added some rhinestones to finish off the design.

The polishes I used were: Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Royal Polish Carnation Creation, and LVX Bon Bon & Mondrian. I finished off the design using Seche Vite Fast Drying Topcoat.



So there you have it. A simple, elegant, and beautiful design!

I highly recommend you check out BeautyBigBang for yourself for many, many awesome nail products and more! And if you do, they have been kind enough to offer my followers 10% off of any order using the code 'PLAY'.

MORGAN TAYLOR - LITTLE MISS NUTCRACKER COLLECTION SWATCH & REVIEW

Hello lovelies! It's been awhile! 

Today I have some beautiful Polishes to share with you guys from Morgan Taylor's Little Miss Nutcracker Collection. I was gifted these polishes from Preen.me and Morgan Taylor as part of the Preen.me VIP program, to review, so let me get into it!

**These polishes were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**


Dreaming of Gleaming is a beautiful shiny silver polish. I only used 1 coat for full coverage which was such a pleasant surprise! Silver is definitely not my go to polish, but I feel like I could find a way to use this one. Maybe with some sharpies?? ;)


You Crack Me Up is a beautiful green sparkle polish. It's not my favorite polish, and I wouldn't necessarily pick it for myself but it was fun to wear for a little bit. It took 2-3 coats for full coverage,  and I didn't quite allow enough drying time before taking photos because I messed up the ring finger ;P oops!


Don't Toy With My Heart is one of my favorites from this collection! It's such a beautiful shimmery red polish. It's even more beautiful in person so I would highly recommend this polish if you're looking for a nice red shimmer.


Just Tutu Much is a stunning gold shimmer polish! This may be my new go to gold polish because I like it so much ;) 1 coat was enough for full coverage.


Ok, this is my absolute favorite polish from this collection! This is Plum-Thing Magical, it's a really beautiful deep purple with an almost magenta colored shimmer. The color shift is beautiful in different lights, which makes it super fun to wear! I just want to stare at it all day!


And of course you know I love this one! Baby It's Bold Outside is a stunning royal blue cream polish! I only used 1 coat for full coverage.


This collection also has a fun flakie/glitter topcoat, Silver in my Stocking. It's really pretty over the blue...so I decided to mattifie it! :D


Isn't it so pretty! (insert googley heart eyes here)

You can get this whole collection for yourself here:

HALLOWEEN NAIL ART-WITCHES AND GRAVEYARDS AND HEADLESS HORSEMAN

Good afternoon! 
Are you guys in the mood for some Halloween designs yet!? I wasn't until about a week ago. I tried before that and I just wasn't quite ready...but I am now and I'm excited to share the 2 designs I've done so far :D I hope you guys like them!



Up first I created this fun Sunset Graveyard scene. I've really loved doing gradient designs, but I haven't done any for awhile now, so I figured it would be fun to create some sort of gradient Halloween design. I used the Stamping plates I have for inspiration, and I love the way it turned out! 

Another thing I've really been loving lately is the double stamping technique. It almost makes this scene look snowy as well, which I wasn't exactly going for, but it makes it more dimensional...so it works ;) The images are from Bunny Nails plate HD-D.




This design was done for Bundlemonster's Halloween #Monsterscream Challenge. The challenge was to create a design using at least 2 of their products, inspired by a Horror Story (book, movie or tv series). I had been thinking about it all week and then when I actually sat down to create a design I could not think of anything for the life of me! I looked up Horror movies, books...tried thinking of what I've watched and read and nothing was coming to me. I even enlisted my best friends help. Lol. But I finally came up with this image after what felt like forever! (Literally a few hours :S ).

Anywho, I had to piece this image together, because I did not have a headless horseman stamp...if you can believe that? ;P I had a unicorn on one of the plates I used that I just removed the horn, I had a prince and a princess sitting on a wall, so I just used his torso and removed his head...(that sounds terrible! Haha), I even had to add a foot on him from a zombie plate I have. Lastly, I felt like he needed a weapon of sorts and the only thing I had that was about the same size that would fit in the space was this sword/ax thing? (idk what it's called). But overall, I am so happy with the way it all came together!

I'd love to know what you guys think of these designs, or what you'd like to see me do next! :)
