NOTD 154 – Featured Color Friday – Special Sneak Peek

Happy Friday guys! Today, 9 years ago my husband and I tied the knot at the Justice of Peace in Killeen, TX; The Army town that we were living in. 🙂 Five years later with Army deployments behind us, we renewed our vows in a ‘wedding ceremony’ and reception back in Jersey shared by our closest friends and family. Nine years later, we still have the most special, strongest relationship. I don’t know what I’d do without him ❤

On another exciting note, I have a sneak peak of a new and upcoming Shimmer Polish! I received four special polishes in the mail the other day from Shimmer and of course my favorite was the one not even up for sale yet, its brand spanking new!

*This polish was sent to me for unbiased review.

I have for you, ‘Astrid’. It’s a Gorgeous light purple base, not quite clear, suspended glitter polish. the glitter flecks are all shapes, there are purples, and pinks, and my favorite the color changing ones depending on the light. Unfortunately not the best for photo taking so I did my best, I hope that the pictures can do this stunning polish justice.

I used two coats of ‘Catrice – Heavy Metalilac’ on my accent finger and two coats of ‘OPI – Planks A Lot’ on the rest along with two coats of ‘Astrid’ On my accent finger, I used my new stamp, ‘Winstonia – W102′  using “Essie – Nothing else metals’

Shimmer Polishes was started on just the pure obsession of polish just like the rest of us. She however makes AMAZINGLY gorgeous glitter polishes. I for one couldn’t even dream up some of these beauties. All of the Shimmer polishes are named after family and friends that she draws inspiration from.

NOTD 134 – Featured Color Friday – Girly

It’s the weekend! Woot! Although, I don’t know why I am so excited my weekends tend to blink by :/ At least today is nice and sunny for once, all week was rainy or cloudy. Tomorrow it’s supposed to rain all day again but then nice for Mother’s Day!

I don’t have a lot of Revlons not because I don’t like the company just because I happen to prefer other companies to it. When I look at Revlons I usually have colors so similar to them from other brands, I just tend not to bother. Well, this was different! I picked up “Girly by Revlon” last week and this was different from most of what I have for once!

“Girly” It’s a creamy Pink with light pink, fuscia, and purple hexagonal shapes in it. I read some reviews and some had some trouble with it. Luckily I did not! Some had troubles with it drying out while applying, or drying to an ugly pink. When I applied, I did about 3-4 light coats and it dried just as it looked in the bottle! woohoo 😀

Such a fun color, and I think girly is the perfect name for it! ❤

Alright guys, that’s it for now, I have a weekend full of hopefully some IronMan watching, making cupcakes, making a cake for my husbands birthday, and then blink, back to work. 😦 Hope everyone has a nice weekend and Mother’s Day!

I’ll be back Monday with some surprise and fun nail art for you guys! 🙂 ALSO: If I follow your blog, be prepared to be comment/like bombed by me today 😀 I am about 600 emails behind and back to as far as almost a month ago… ::sigh::
