Maybelline The City Mini Palette Review & Make-up Look

Some items in this post were provided for review.

Hi everyone!

I have something different to share with you in this post, a lovely eyeshadow palette and makeup look! A while ago, I received the Maybelline City Mini Palette in 410 Chill Brunch Neutrals in a Voxbox from Influenster. I’m really liking this palette, so I decided to share it with you.

Hi everyone!

I’m giving Water Marble Wednesday a skip this week so that I can share a few nail art product reviews with you! Today I have another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, BP-L078.

One of the images on plate BP-L078 looked like shattered glass, so it was perfect to go over the mirrored chrome powder finish. (more…)

Hi everyone!

I know it’s only July, but I have some Halloween nail art for you today! I have two nail art looks using Born Pretty Store plate BP-L057, which has some perfect Halloween images. I wanted to share it with you now so that you have time to order it and get it in time for Halloween!

I got this plate using my Born Pretty Store points. Did you know that they have a point system? You can upload pictures of nail art using their products and earn points, which you can use to purchase more products from their store.

Crowstoes Huginn & Muninn Swatch

Hi everyone!

Are you familiar with Crowstoes Nail Color? If you are, you’ve probably seen pictures of some of their incredible multichromes, or perhaps you own some yourself! Not long ago, I was lucky enough to win a small giveaway in their Facebook fan group which basically amounted to enough store credit for one polish. I decided to try out one of those multichromes I’d been drooling over forever!

Hi everyone!

I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to share with you, plate BP-L063. This one is covered with cute animal images! There are some cats I know I’ll be using at some point, and monkeys, and elephants, and penguins – today I’ve gone with the dolphins and hedgehogs.

Stamping Plate BP-L052 Review

Hi everyone!

It has been so hot and humid the past couple of days here – something I never thought I’d be saying about Minnesota before I moved here! It looks like it might rain today so I’m hoping it’ll cool down just a little.

Today I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, plate BP-L052, to share with you. Before I start showing you any of the nail art (and let me tell you right now that both looks I did are pretty great and you should at least look at this whole post!), a note about the plate itself. When I received this plate, several of the images were different than those shown on the site. Here is my photograph of the plate (excuse the reflections):

And, the plate as advertised on the site:
BORN PRETTY 12*6cm Rectangle Stamping Template Floral Design Manicure Nail Art Image Plate BP-L052Some of the images seem to just appear in a different order, while others are completely different. The plate still has a similar vibe and either version is beautiful, but do be aware of this before purchasing this plate. Now for the two stamped nail art looks I’ve created using this plate!

Swatch: Northern Star Polish Shark Bite

The polish shown in this post was provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

When I first moved to Minnesota I looked up which indie polish brands were local to Minnesota. I saw Northern Star Polish but to my disappointment, they were on hiatus at the time. I am happy to say that they’re back! They made their return a couple of months ago and have been participating in the monthly Polish Pickup initiative. I was over the moon when Kristin, the maker behind Northern Star, approached me about swatching this month’s polish. So, here is my first ever Northern Star polish – Shark Bite!
