Feather Nails- Halloween Costume Mani

Hi Y'all!  Today I have feather manis to show you, and this is the first time I've ever done these (literally, I practiced once on one nail first and that's it lol).  I got the idea from this post at Syl and Sam.  This post will include mine and my friends manis, mine turquoise and her's red.  We are both dressing as Native American Indians for Halloween and these are to go with our costumes.

Halloween Skittle Mani

 Happy (almost) Halloween Y'all! Today I have my Halloween themed mani.  I consider this a skittle mani because each nail is different.  There's patchwork/stitches, spiderwebs, ruffles, and skeletons OHMY!

Wonder Beauty Products SuperChic Lacquer Moonshine Merlot

Today I have Wonder Beauty Products SuperChic Lacquer "Moonshine Merlot".  This is described on the Wonder Beauty page as "Super glistening burgundy wine crelly-chrome base embellished with bronze dust, burnt orange and iridescent glitter effects".  I would add that it also has gold glitters, in addition to the bronze. 

I layered one coat of Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Save the Date and 2 coats SuperChic Lacquer Moonshine Merlot.  The formula and glitter payoff was great, opaque in 2-3 coats but I chose to layer it for a quicker mani and to waste less of the good stuff.  This is a perfect fall color, the glitters reminds me of falling leaves or bonfire embers.

Influenster MamaVoxBox- Dr. Scholl's For Her Comfort Insoles

Hi Y'all!
Today I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you about another product I received complimentary from Influenster in my #MamaVoxBox, Dr. Scholl's For Her Comfort Inserts.

As soon as I pulled these out, my first thought was "YES, I've been needing these for my boots!".  My second thought was "NO, these are going to be way too small!", which was proved wrong.

China Glaze Autumn Nights

Happy Fall Y'all!
Today I have 2 polishes from the China Glaze Autumn Nights Fall 2013 Collection.

The formula and coverage was wonderful with both polishes and the colors are fantastic.  CG Gossip Over Gimlets is a very opaque silver foil with tiny gold flakes that you can barely see, but they add a nice warm tone to the silver.  CG Rendezvous With You is a very unique dark warm purple foil, I don't think I've seen this color before. 

This is 2 coats of CG Rendezvous With You and tips are one coat CG Gossip Over Gimlets.  Both of these are foil finish shimmers and they are gorgeous!

Birthday Ombre

Hi Y'all! This is the mani I did for my 25th birthday at the beginning of September :)

For this ombre I used Maybelline Silver Aluminum, Pure Ice Flirt Alert, Orly Rock It and then topped it with China Glaze Fairy Dust.

For the accent nail, it's a base of Orly Rock It, and the design is done in Pure Ice Silver Mercedes and Pure Ice Flirt Alert, topped with CG Fairy Dust (crack).
