Hi!
Today I have for you this nail polish from Born Pretty Store, a clear base packed with small white bar glitter and small black matte hex glitter. I really love the effect of this polish. I just applied one coat over Nails Inc Savoy Hill.

This is how Savoy Hill looks by itself.

I highly recommend this nail polish, it applies very well and no dabbing is necessary.

Indie Polish Awareness Mega Giveaway

AWESOMENESS ALERT!

Lacquer: The Best Medicine and Miss Mani Monster have joined forces to promote indie polish awareness by hosting a huge giveaway!

Here is a little excerpt from the hosts:

About a month ago, I saw a post from Cassandra of Sweet Heart Polish on her Facebook Page asking if any bloggers would be interested in hosting a giveaway for her nail polish. I have used several of her polishes, and I absolutely adore them; so, of course I jumped at the opportunity! I figured it would just be a simple 1-prize giveaway as usual, but then we got to talking - she said that if anybody else wanted to participate that would be fine.

I told my good friend Heather over at Miss Mani Monster about this, and we got talking about indie polish brands and how there are so many wonderful ones out there that don't get enough attention - and usually it's just because people don't know they exist! Heather and I are SERIOUS fans of indie polishes, which is pretty obvious if you browse through our blog posts!

So, we thought it would be a great idea to help promote indie polish awareness - and what better way to do that than by giving away some of the actual polish!? Heather and I believe that direct interactions between seller and customer is the best way to spread the word about a brand - so that is exactly what we are doing!

This giveaway is about some of our all-time favorite indie polish makers coming together to help one another gain some well-deserved recognition in the nail polish community - and we think it is going to be a great success! (Borat, anybody?)

I would not have been able to organize this without Heather's help - I have been too busy studying for my MCAT! (you're probably sick me of telling you this.. don't worry, my test is in a week!)

Well, enough of my yapping; lets get to the good stuff!

The giveaway is separated into two separate parts - US only & International. The first Rafflecopter widget you'll see is the US only widget; please make sure you only enter that one if you're from the US! (or if you have a friend in the US we can mail it to) ... The second widget is for all my lovely international ladies (& gents, maybe) out there.

Here is a quick peek at some of the prizes you can win, along with all the wonderful indie sponsors!

Dotted Green Gradient Manicure

Hello everyone!
I'm sorry for the lack of posts lately, I'm enjoying some time with my parents who came from Venezuela for vacation.

In this post I'm showing you a gradient manicure I did with four different shades of green from a Venezuelan brand called Marylin.
I used a medium size dotting tool to create the dots.


Topped with a coat of Holo Blast.


Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!

KBShimmer - The Grape Beyond and Would Jubilee it?

**Press Sample**

KBShimmer will be celebrating five years in business this month, and Christy created two beautiful polishes to celebrate it.
This duo will be sold separately, but was designed to work together.

The Grape Beyond, "This matte purple polish is designed to accent the glitters in Would Jubilee It? . This shade is not too dark, and not too light, letting each glitter shine. The Grape Beyond features a very subtle turquoise shimmer that is evident in the light with top coat."

The formula and application on this were excellent, the first coat was just a little bit streaky but the second went on perfectly for full coverage.

Would Jubilee It? "This Glitter topper is loaded with all my favorite glitters. Circle glitters in fuchsia, aqua, and silver, hex glitters in sapphire and turquoise, and micro slices in fuchsia, aqua and silver."

This one had great formula too, applied easily. This is one coat over The Grape Beyond.

What do you think of this duo? I really love it!
KBShimmer polishes are  amazing,

These polishes will be available tomorrow, August 8th at KBShimmer.com, don't forget to like KBShimmer on Facebook.

Thank you very much for reading!
