O.P.I Mini Haul: Nicki Minaj Collection

Hello Darlings! Sorry for my Lack of posts lately, I just got a new camera and I have been learning how to use it. I am still working on it but it's coming along quite nicely and I am learning a lot! My pictures have come out pretty well so far though! I hope that you all agree! :) I haven't done a polish haul for quite some time and I have been craving some new polish babies lately so I decided to do a little searching...my find was very satisfying. Check it out!
    O.P.I Nicki Minaj collection....well most of them I didn't get the Crackle.
Now when it comes to Nicki Minaj I am NOT a fan of her music. I enjoy real hip hop and artists with talent *hides from stares of daggers and cyber rocks being thrown*. With that being said, I think she is very interesting and not afraid to be out there which I give her props for. Another thing I give props for is this amazing collection that has her name stamped all over it! 

Beautiful Spring Cremes L-R
'That's Hot! Pink' (this was on clearance at Ulta so I had to give it a home it's not part of Nicki's Collection) Bright Hot PINK!, 'Pink Friday' a baby pink creme, 'Did It On 'Em'  bold yellow/green or Chartreuse, 'Fly' Teal Cream that I can't take my eyes off of.

'Save Me'
This Polish is so exciting and I just love the mini Holographic glittery strips! I don't have anything like this at all! This is by far my favorite of the Nicki Minaj Collection! I can't wait to put a few coats of this sexy polish over black. drool.

'Metallic 4 Life'  Chunky and not so chunky silver glitter in a black base, and once again 'Fly'. Fly is the younger brother of China Glazes 'Shower Together' if not younger than an identical twin. Teal + Creme = amazeB's!
Thank you so much for checking out my new loves! Remember to check back for the Giveaway Winner announcement coming on February 29th!

I've got a thing for Blue!

Hello friends! I found this blue beauty in the clearance section at Target for under 3 dollars a few months ago so you know I had to pick it up! I was kind of surprised it was in the clearance area because its such a pretty color. Now every time I go to Target I check the clearance section, and they never have any Essie polishes anymore so I guess I just got lucky.

Essie 'Coat Azure'. This is two coats and it applied beautifully. This is the perfect sky blue with just the right amount of shimmer. GAWJUSS!

I jazzed this manicure up using a black polish which was Sinful Colors 'Black on Black' and Bundle Monster plate BM-20.

Do you like?

I want to thank you all for entering in my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. I got so many entries and it is going to take me a while to sort through them all. I will announce the winner on February 29th so stay tuned for that! 
I hope you all enjoyed this manicure..I really liked this one..and it's NOT PINK! HA!

Are you sick of all this PINK yet?!

I'm not! I love pink so check out my neon pink tips with random polka dots...
China Glaze 'Pool Party' on the tips! I LOVE it!  Since my nails are long enough I decided to freehand some tips..not too bad. I thought something was missing so I added some polka dots, because I love them! 

What a fun French! This Manicure really stood out :)

I promise I won't do pink for a while, what do YOU guys want to see on my nails next? Let me know please, I am super open to suggestions. ALSO please don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't. Just ONE MORE DAY! 
Happy Valentines Day I love you all! Thanks for all of your support. Hugs and Kisses!!

M.A.C Ombre Blushes

Hey Ladies!  The one thing in my makeup collection that I don't have so much are blushes. I have maybe 3 blushes and that just won't do., I need to expand and open my mind to more colors textures and finishes. I knew when I saw these beauties I had to pic them up! 
M.A.C Ombre Blushes in Vintage Grape and Azalea Blossom

These are gorgeous...I just love looking at them. I almost don't want to use them because they are so gorgeous...that gradient is absolutely to die for!

Azalea Blossom is a gorgeous shimmery Ombre that goes from a light baby pink to a gorgeous lilac.

Vintage Grape goes from a bright Magenta to a deeper plum. Beautiful! The blushes are super smooth and have great coverage.Have you guys tried these? What are your thoughts? Are you an Azalea Blossom or Vintage Grape kind of girl? Thank you so much for reading and following if you have! Until next time..

Valentine's Day Nails with an Edge!

Hey Loves! Valentines Day is Just around the corner so its time for cute V-Day nails!  Have a look angel faces...

I used Sinful Colors 'Black on Black', and on the ring finger Sinful Colors 'Snow Me White' . These colors are amazing, the best black and white polish ever and for only two bucks a piece at Target! What a Bargain!

I used China Glaze 'Broken Hearted' for the Crackle effect and a random shimmery pink from a Migi Nail art pen to draw on the heart and polka dots.

I was going to use tape to make the pink have a cleaner line but I didn't want to wait for the black to dry completely. Hey, Don't judge me hahaha it still came out pretty good. What do you guys think?

I love this crackle!

Thank you so much for reading! Have a great weekend friends!
