hard candy mini Christmas set from Walmart

                   hard candy mini Christmas set from Walmart 

                  I had never used hard candy nail polish, this was the first time. i had seen them in the store just never got any. i did love the packing on this this, the box was shiny gold, 
so the set included 4 nail polishes and nail file. The colors did not have any names on the bottles.
i started with the first one, the pink bottle, the formula was very thin. when i applied it to my nails it looked more like a shimmer polish with a pink tint in it. this is 2 coats 
i then went on and used the purple one, this also was a thin formula, i applied 3 coats and some stamping polish

I went on to use the green this formula was a little thicker i applied 2 coats and again some stamping polish,
I then went on to use the blue, this formula was again a little thicker then the first 2.
  then i used the black, this has glitter in it , so the formulas was pretty thick
 the black was was pretty but i could see that it did not go on even, so i added some nail art  and it looked amazing. 
over all this set was ok, not he best in my option. 
hope you liked this little review.

nail stamping

Nail stamping is something that a lot of people have been getting in to for the last few years. 
There are several company's that make stamping polish.  Some people  also use just plain nail polish. 
Doing this allows people to make beautiful nail art  with out a lot of work.  There are all kinds of stamping plates and stampers. stamping has hit the nail industry hard, people just love it. 
some of the stamping kits i can recall off the top of my head are konad, moyou , salon express. The first time i had heard of stamping i was about 16. it was an as seen on tv kit. I had to have it.  but that was the last kit i saw till i was in my 30's and then it was the salon express kit, it comes with one stamper,4 plates and scarper, the plates for this kit are not that great. They  seem to not be etched properly and the stamper is hard to use.  also this kit  does not come with stamping polish. 
this was probably the cheapest kit i own, many stamping supply's you can buy separately. Such as the plates, or stampers them self. you can also get different plates, from designs with just a little picture  such as a hearts to ones with a full picture that covers the entire nail. you can get all kinds of stamping items for designing your nails. 
One of the big items that a lot of people buy is whats called stamping polish, there are several different types, 
konad, mdu, born pretty has come out with one, hit polish, moyou, and so many others. 
stamping is pretty simple.  the basic idea is that you place stamping polish on the stamping plate, scrap it off with the scraper and push the round/ square stamper on to the paint to pic up the image. 
stamping can be a little hard at first, but a lot of fun in the end. 
you can find stamping videos on you tube and there are groups on Facebook. many girls enjoy doing this type of nail art. its simple and makes your nails look beautiful, the creativity with this can be amazing.  there are many different stamping tools to use. there are hard stampers, squishy stampers and even clear stampers. its really all about what you like to use. i even found another blog on how to make your own stampers, its really cool you might want to try it.

stamping polish is the same way, there are many types. from highly pigmented ones that  go over black and other dark colors to almost transparent colors for white and light colors. and yes you can make your own stamping polish if you want too. to make your own stamping polish you need- 
1- 15ml bottle empty
about 14ml of polish base, what ever base you like best. 
5 to 6 grams of pigment, and  one shaker ball, 
mix these items in the 15 ml bottle and it should work well, it will be very thick. 
i made one and it worked well 
  hope this was helpful and you enjoyed this post.  have fun stamping

snowman shaped nail polish from family dollar - 5.00 set

                                       Snowman shaped nail polish from dollar general 

So the other night i had to go out for some chips and dip. this is what brought me to dollar general,
realizing they brought out more Christmas stuff i had to take look. so my little adventure down the isle of Christmas stuff made me stop right in from of the makeup, all i could see were these 4 little snowmen looking at me saying " take us home. so in my cart they went.
  I could not resit buying them, I mean who could. there shiny little top hats, and orange noses. just so cute. At home i took them out of the package, looking at them thinking these look a lot like the princess nail polish bottles i have.
Hopeing they were not kid polish.(Since i was so excited and did not look originally)
thank goodness they are not kid polish, however they do smell different then normal nail polish.
They are on the thicker side.

the red is a shimmery polish, i had no issues with applying it, and it seemed to dry pretty fast. 
Then i used the glitter polish over the red, the polish was thick and hard to work with, 
next i used the white polish, this polish has shimmery iridescent look to it, to my surprise it covers fully in 2 coats and this was not hard to work with at all, dry time was the same as the red,
and the last one was the purple. i have to say this one was kinda thick, and took longer to dry then the others. however it is the best color in the set of polish. its another shimmer polish however it has such a deep purple to it, i just love it. 

You can pick these polishes up at dollar general Christmas section for only 5.00

pumpkin bottles- from rite aid

so i was in rite aid the other day,  and was looking around, i came upon these oh so cute nail polish bottles. I had seen them before but never got any of them, so i picked up 4 of them. they were 3.99 each. I ended yup getting neon blue, neon yellow (glow in the dark) , chunky multi glitter and one with skull glitters in the bottle. 
i do want to say all 4 of these polishes are a very thin formula, so if you like a thick formula these might not be for you. 
so the blue polish is a neon blue this polish dries matte.
 I  used 3 coats for full coverage of it. 
this photo was taken with the flash on , 
above photo was taken with no flash
I choose to use the skull glitters over the blue polish, the skull glitters have white, pink and light pink skull shaped glitters in the bottles with small hex iridescent  glitters along with the skulls in the bottle, this bottle as with all the others are 14ml in size. 
The glitters did sink to the bottle of this polish so i was trying to pull them out of the bottle, each time I tried to get a glitter out i would have to shake the bottle, this dose not bother me, but i know it does bother others. I believe this is due to the the formula being so thin. 
Here a a few close up of the glitter

the skull glitters were a lot of fun to wear. 
so then i choose to wear the the neon yellow. now i have to admit even after 3 coats it was streckey and just not what i had expected,  i do think this might be good for maybe a base for another color, or design, but defiantly not alone. 
I do like how bright the color is even thought its not as solid  as i would like. it did glow in the dark well, 
so after all that i put on the multi glitter polish, avian this polish was thin. 
it applied 2 coats of the multi glitter polish
all together 
these polishes were a lot of fun to play with. they are good for Halloween. 
you can get these at rite aid
 or on ebay

sinful colors- 21015 Halloween- skele-bration 1564

I love Halloween and that time is coming soon.
sinful colors has released there Halloween collection for 2015. In this collection is skele-bration, just the perfect thing for Halloween this year.

skele-bration is  a jelly green polish with black skulls in it. 
the bottle is 15ml in size, the brush is a medium size brush. this polish glows in the dark and has skulls in it.  its just awesome sauce for your fingers!

I started out with one coat of this polish, I then applied another coat on my thumb and my pinky finger. 
I choice to stamping  on the other fingers using the uber chick stamping plate   Zombie Love-01. 
you can find this stamping plate at   

I then applied another coat of sinful colors skele-bration  over the stamping i had done. 
The only thing i did not like about this polish is the skulls sinking to the bottom of the bottle. 
you will need to give this polish a good shake. but once the skull glitters are floating in the polish your good to go. I pulled out 2 to 3 skull at a time , after it was shaken. so i love the mani i did and hope you all did too. 
you can get sinful color from rite aid, Walgreens, walmart and several other stores 
and just for fun here is a shot of it glowing in the dark
