4th of July Sandwich Day!

Hello my lovelies let me first say I am sorry I haven't posted in a while my project has literally consumed me! What project I am sure you're wondering since I have never mention it, I was inspired to try and make my own polishes! So I have been reading, researching, learning and experimenting since Feb/March, let me tell you its not easy! I can't tell you how many glitters I've tested and still testing to this day! So one of my creations I get to feature in this post! Oh and your probably wondering about the sandwich day huh well Polly Polish came up with the theme and its layering a Jelly Polish over glitters. I had a little problem I don't own any Jelly Polishes!!! So I took a crash course and made one for this post! HAH!!! :D

The 4th of July glitter polished used in the photos was given to a little girl that just found out she has type 1 diabetes, I hope it brightens her day a little after finding out such life changing news. My thoughts are with her.

This is pre-Jelly Sandwich 4th of July sparkly!

Its a Jelly Sandwich!

I don't know much about Jelly Sandwiches this is my first time attempting it, I think I should have only used one coat of the jelly polish I made, it came out darker than expected with two coats.

For this mani everything was created by me, the base is a color I made after using an OPI that I didn't like and could not find a replacement blue that I wanted to use.
The glitters I put together for 4th of July mani and the blue jelly I created as well.

I will be listing other lovelies that joined in on the fun shortly! Stay tuned~!! :D

#FloamDay Hip Hip Hooray!!

Happy #FloamDay Everyone!!! If you don't know what Floam is yet or why there is #FloamDay no worries I explain it right here for ya! Now when you here Floam you probably think of the stuff kids play with, or as seen on TV commercials. This Floam is nail polish created by an Indie polish maker Nail-Venturous! And Floam day started thanks to Polly Polish she decided to start a Floam movement! hehehehe So she created a sign up page for everyone that wanted to participate, I was undecided because I didn't know if I would have the time to join in. But I said screw it I'll make time, and then I got a bad ass cold thats been kicking my butt even still today. So this post will be a little late compared to everyone else... sorry! :(

Wanted to do something a little different with Floam but my camera didn't like the neon Pink & Floam Combo. >_< Used Sinful Colors - Pink, Floam Seche Vite top coat and then decided to add a matte top coat Hard Candy - matte-ly in love.

I Won A LadyBug Nail Polish Holder!

I entered Beauty By Krystal's contest and won a LadyBug holder! What is it you ask? It's a polish holder than can lay on it's side, great for those half bottles of polish that makes it easier to get the polish out. :D

Now for some pictures, I am still getting use to my new camera so please forgive any bad pictures.

Bottom of the LadyBug

LadyBug in action

Profile of LadyBug :)

Its a cute design and it hugs regular size bottles nice and snug, all except for my mini bottles. The round circles on the bottom are rubber to help it from sliding, I'm guessing. I recommend using on a flat surface, without anything underneath it. I used it on a towel it swayed back n forth very easily. If I were using a full bottle of polish that wouldn't have bothered me, but I was using a half full bottle so yea I got peeved a little. Wish it had more weight on the bottom sides, I accidentally kept knocking it to the center when I was using it. =/
Otherwise I would say a perfect nail polish accessory! :)

What do you think? Do you have one, or could you see yourself using one?

Don't forget to check out Beauty By Krystal's blog, she has lots of interesting reviews and
beauty information!! :D
