Lechat Dare to Wear Spectra Holo Collection, Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Oh you're going to want to take a sit, grab a snack, and fully enjoy a collection of 12 brand new holos from Lechat Dare to Wear. I didn't even know Lechat came out with holos and was fully expecting their gorgeous spring creme collection to arrive. When these arrived in it, I was so giddy that I previewed them on my Instagram. These are intensely holo with such unique colors!

Beauty Big Bang Blue Stamping Polish with Stella Chroma Reflections

Press Sample

I love when I get to test stamping polishes! Usually, I search my stash and just hope for the best with a normal polish. I forget how much easier it is to stamp when you have a stamping polish LOL. I especially love when stamping polishes make me look like a pro. Enter Beauty Big Bang stamping polishes!

Morgan Taylor Platinum Collection, Partial Review

Press Sample

Even though mainstream polishes are the original OG holos, indies have taken over for the last 5-6 years. It seems mainstream is getting the hint and bringing it back with some new holos! I have three of the six new holos from Morgan Taylor. These are the new Platinum holos and they glow! They are considered holographic shimmers so they have a nice holo flame but also a glowy shimmer.

So the more you know, right? I flipped to February and fully expected to do a Valentine's filled Pusheen. Who knew it was Pusheen's birthday?! That was the inspiration for this month's Pusheen manicure of the month! And it just so happens that TODAY is her birthday (although Pusheen will always be a male to me).

Mardi Gras Nail Art with Girly Bits

Press Sample

It's Fat Tuesday, or Shrove Tuesday, or Mardi Gras as most people know it. I love Louisiana and its culture. When I visited, I could totally see myself living there. This year, Mardi Gras came too quickly so sadly, I only had time for one measly little manicure. And even that, after reading and commenting on 200+ pages of paper this weekend, I just felt tired and exhausted. This is all I could do last night.

Girly Bits Slay Belle with Hearts, Valentine's Day Nail Art

Partial Press Sample

So I purchased Slay Belle, one of the December CoTM from Girly Bits, but I was never getting it in time for the holidays, lol. But as I looked at it, I went hey! This doesn't have to be a holiday polish, it can totally be a Valentine's Day polish, so that's what I did!

I have been doing a lot of stamping lately, but I really loved what I did for Valentine's Day last year, so I wanted to do a round-up. This past week I shared a few Valentine's Day looks and I'll have a few more. I just wanted to go down memory lane with this post!

Valentine's Day Art: Negative Stamping with Stella Chroma

Partial Press Sample

With my semester in full swing, it's getting harder to spend a lot of time on art. So I've been reaching for stamping lately because I can get a fun manicure done in 30 minutes or less. Compared to last year's Valentine's Day, this is the year of the stamp for me. I've also been working on finally using up my last few untrieds, and this was perfect!

Matching My Outfit: Polka Dot Nail Art

Press Sample

I don't know about you, but I rarely match my nails to my outfit. I usually save that for special events. Normally, I wear whatever on my nails. But I wore this manicure 2 weeks ago to match my outfit. I was feeling a little uninspired and I had put out my outfit for work. So why not?! Check out my gorgeous shoes!

It's Monday! What's better than unicorn + holo + chameleon + whatever else makes you happy?! Maybe leftover brownies from the Super Bowl last night? Yea, that was a delicious breakfast. I'm having so much fun with all these new loose powders. They just keep getting better! These are definitely some of my favorite.
