Moonflower Polish Gemstones Pt. 2 Swatches

Press  Sample

Hey There!  Today I'm having a look at Moonflower Polish's Gemstones Pt 2 collection.  I previously reviewed the first Gemstones collection way back in October (that post can be found here) and loved them so I'm so happy she came out with a new set to expand the color line.  I have found Moonflower's stamping polishes to be spot one, especially when you're looking for something outside of cremes.  She has really mastered the formula for putting enough holo or shimmer in her polishes for the sparkle to show while also having enough color that not everything gets silver-ed out.  I also really like using them as regular polish.  They apply easily and opaquely, perfect for the person on the go.

My Mani Box - Stained Glass (February 2019)

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today I'm sharing a few looks I did with an older My Mani Box from Beautometry.  My Mani Box is a subscription nail art box that you can order monthly or for 3, 6, or even 12 months.  Each month's box contains 2 MoYou London stamping plates (you pick regular or XL sized), a stamping accessory plus more.  I've generally found that they usually contain at least one indie polish and they've all been lovely.  February's box theme was Stained Glass.  Let's take a look at it.

Maniology Mani X Me Box - June 2019

Affiliate Code

Hey there!  Happy Monday everybody!  Today I'm sharing my look at this month's Maniology Mani X Me Box, Memphis Mod.  The Mani X Me Box is a monthly subscription box with 2 plates, 2 stamping polishes (which can also be used as regular polish) and an extra.  That being said, you can opt out any month or just buy month by month so it's not a huge commitment.  But if you're not someone who has accumulated a big stash of stamping polishes, it's a great way to build your collection at a very reasonable cost.  I'll be honest, when I first saw this month's preview, I wasn't fully sold on it but when I did these manis last week, I kinda fell in love with it.  The polishes are perfect for summer and the plates encourage some fun geometric looks.  Plus, the pineapple plate holder is absolutely adorable.  If this (or any other Maniology products) interests you, please use the code COPY10 to save yourself some money!

The Digit-al Dozen does Vacation - Stormy Tropics

Hey there!  It's the last day of The Digit-al Dozen's Vacation week.  For the last hurrah, I have a result that was quite different than the intent.  I thought I'd be getting a calm, sunny tropical mani but what I got ended up looking like a storm!  Let me know if you see the same as me.  To me it looks like water, trees and lightning...though that could just be my fear of lightning that's making me see it.

UberChic Beauty Summer Ready Holos and Stamping Gel Polish

Press  Sample

Hey there!  I've been blogging for UberChic Beauty since she first released stamping plates but now she's expanded into the polish world, with both a line of Summer-Ready Holos gel polish AND stamping gel polish.  That's right...gel polish that stamps!  I often see people asking if there's stamping gel polish and now I can have a recommendation for them.  I could be wrong but, as far as I know, this is the first of its kind.

Edit: I just noticed I must have pressed Publish when I was putting this post together last night instead of "Save"...I hope no one had actually looked at it yet!  It's all fixed now!

The Digit-al Dozen does Vacation - My Hawaii Nails

Hey there!  For today's Digit-al Dozen Vacation mani, I decided it'd be a good time to post the mani I actually wore went I went on vacation this year.  I only go on a real vacation every 5 years so when I do, deciding what to put on my nails is STRESSFUL.  Am I alone in that?  I don't know why I get so stressed since I always bring other polish and change it when I'm away but I guess it's hard for me to decide on something that I know will be on my nails for at least the first few days.  For my Hawaiian vacation this year, I decided to use an old Maniology (then Bundle Monster) plate that was put out in a Polynesian bundle with the islands of Hawaii in the shape of flowers.

The Digit-al Dozen does Vacation - Camping Nails

Hey there!  For Day 3 of The Digit-al Dozen's Vacation week, I did a vacation idea that so many people I know love...camping.  Personally I haven't slept in a tent or even a camper in close to 20 years.  I will always choose the comfort of a bed over the ground but that's just me...
