Pink of Hearts

OPI is back at it with their 8th Annual limited edition Breast Cancer Awareness duo in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.

This years set includes a pink entitled Mod About You and this gorgeous pink cream jelly with various pink and white glitters suspended in it entitled The Power of Pink. The pink jelly can be worn on it’s own (takes about 2-3 coats to be opaque) or over-top Mod About You. The set comes with a pink glitter nail file with a breast cancer charm. This year OPI will donate $25,000 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation (US) and $5000 to Rethink Breast Cancer (Canada) in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Set retails for $16.95 but you are in luck! I have a set to giveaway!

First check out my swatches of these beauties. I did two coats of Mod About you on my ring finger for accent and I stamped Orly’s Miss Conduct using my ribbon stamp. I did two coats of The Power of pink on the rest of my nails.

Birthday Giveaway #1 **GIVEAWAY CLOSED**

Hey guys!

So I got a coupon in my email today for Ulta and I needed more of my UD mascara… I went to go get that and bought myself a little Birthday present! I own a lot of polish but I always try to go to the places that I know I can get them for the best prices. I don’t want to be spending 14+ dollars per polish, I can’t justify it. So this is why to this day I still don’t own any Butter Londons…. Until today! The two pack gift sets were on sale, plus I had an amazing coupon, that for once, didn’t exclude Butter London! I bought myself the Double Take Ice Duo! 🙂 and I have one to giveaway to you 🙂

Soooo… for one of you lucky ladies, I have the Double Take Fire Duo.

NOTD 178 – Featured Color Friday – Indie Hello Kitty

Woohoo It’s finally Friday! I feel like I am so behind this year, I have no decorations up, nothing wrapped, still a few people to buy for, etc. I am usually way more prepared by now. I think it’s that Thanksgiving was so much later, it’s totally throwing me off. I have been working on Saturdays for OT, this Sunday I have a party to go to, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday of next week I have things going on, along with Doctors, etc. mixed in to that, it’s just insane!

Anyway, enough about my crazy schedule and lack of preperation this year, on to this beautiful ILNP pretty that I have been telling you all so much about lately. This is Indie Go by I Love Nail Polish. It’s a gorgeous blue holo with mixed in blue sparkles and subtle color change.

This picture is a little blurry but you can just see the amazing holo/sparkle and slight color change! 🙂

I then stamped my Ice skating Hello Kitty and I took my Milani nail art bottles and filled in some of the stamp. I colored in her headband and scarf pink and added glitter to her skates and her headband for some sparkly detail. 🙂

Winter Nail/cuticle care

A while back I had done a post about OPI Nail Envy and still to this day, I am absolutely in love with it. It has done wonders for my nails! As you know, my sister came to visit last week and I used it on her nails. A week later, she is hooked too and can’t wait for her nails to be strong and grow like mine. We got to talking and she then asked how I care for my cuticles and it got me thinking to do this post. We all care for our nails/cuticles differently so I wanted to share how I will be caring for mine this Winter.

For one my hands tend to get very dry and sometimes even cracked in the winter months. The lotion I use to stop that and to keep my hands soft is by Miracle of Aloe and it’s called Miracle Hand Repair. This stuff is seriously amazing. You only need a little and it might feel thick at first but once you rub it in and it soaks in it works wonders!

The next products are what I use for cuticle care.

Picture 120

I use Sally Hansen’s gel cuticle remover and Revlon brand cuticle pusher. This cuticle gel and from what I know of others, most cuticle remover gels you need to leave on your cuticles for a few moments to soften them.

I then use the flat part of my pusher and push the cuticles back and the rounded part to clean up what I’ve pushed. Finally, but not always any other clean up I use my cuticle clippers for.

Picture 126

Finally, and hand in hand with my lotion I use cuticle oil. Usually I use the cuticle oil first and then apply lotion. I have one at home, my Julep rollerball applicator and at work I have Sally Hansen brush on. I apply the cuticle oil and rub in, I then apply my lotion and voila, smooth hands and cuticles.

Well there you have it, that is how I care for my hands/cuticles. I do this stuff more frequently during the winter months but all year, still care for them the same.

How will you be caring for your nails, hands, and cuticles this season?

Before I go,  I have a few items to give away that might help you 🙂

Picture 107

First up is a 5 piece Manicure set which includes: Nail clippers, cuticle pusher, cuticle clipper, Tweezers, and a glass nail file. It comes in this cute little case.

Secondly in the giveaway is Formula 10’s cuticle cream.

NOTD 96 – Cheryl

Hey guys! so, I was able to pump out a quick post for you guys today. No giveaway pics yet; working on those goodies still 🙂

Today’s polish (please excuse my nubs) 😦 is called “Cheryl by Zoya” (It also just so happens that both my mom and mom-in-law are both named Cheryl, so added bonus!!) 😀 The Zoya website describes it as: “A smoky brown base completely packed with metallic copper, gold and mahogany metallic microglitter. A jeweled brown for a very rich look!” I agree! My Girlfriend Gina gave me this polish a while back and I had not tried until now, and I LOVE it. see what you think..
