Ursula

I don't know if any of you ever heard of Once Upon a Polish but it was an amazing brand that sadly no longer exists, the only way to get it is in blog sales if you are lucky. And I was!!!! So far I have collected 4 and 3 from the coveted Little Mermaid collection. Today I have finally used Ursula. I have a soft spot for villians. Hahaha. 

Ursula is a gorgeous glitter polish full of purple and black micro glitter, purple squares, black shards and hexes. I have heard complaints of curling glitter in this polish but I didn't experience that problem. 


I started out with one coat of China Glaze Grape Juice and then added one coat of Ursula. Followed by a coat of OPI Matte Top Coat, because HELLO MATTE GLITTER!!!


Recently I bought the Bundle Monster CYO set of stamping plates. Best impulse buy EVER! This image is from plate BM401 and a matte white polish from Born Pretty Store.

Does anyone else own any of this brand? Do you miss it and wish it would come back? Yeah me too.

I Do Love Me Some Floral!

I did some wonderful nail art with a base of the of so gorgeous Soska from Chirality Black in the New Black Duo. You can check out my review of that collection right HERE.

So here you can see the final floral design that matched my rockin floral pencil skirt I wore the other day. 

I started with a base of Soska. I used two coats.


I then used only a dotting tool to create some weird floral design. I did this mani a while ago and I have been really busy with my new job, so I cant remember the colors I used. I can tell you that the white dots are China Glaze Dandy Lyin Around.

So this is the left hand, Obviously. 

And here we have my right hand. I havent done this type of floral in a really long time and it could just some practice. But I did get lots of compliments from my new coworkers. 


What do you guys think? And have you tried Chirality's new duo, Black is the New Black? It is a must have and you can find it right HERE.

Chirality and the Twisted Twins

I have two badass new polishes from Chirality's Black is the new Black collection to show you tonight!

First up we have a super awesome black holo called Soska, which was created in collaboration with filmmakers Jen & Sylvia Soska.

They make some rad horror movies the most recent one I have seen is American Mary and it is streaming on Netflix. Here is a trailer: 

But how can I not mention their three upcoming films: WWE's See No Evil 2, The ABCs of Death 2, and 

XX (the first ever all-female directed horror anthology).


It is awesome and you need to check it out! You can also find the Twins on Facebook HERE

On to the polish!!
First lets check out Chirality's new labels!
I think they are very fun and make me think of the 80's. hahaha I dont know why. I think they look better and are easier to see but I do wish they were are transparent on the darker colors.

This is Soska.

This polish was inspired by the Soska Twins. 
They make horror movies including the one I mentioned above as well as Dead Hooker in a Trunk.

For this polish I used two coats that covered incredibly well. 


Next we have Counterintuitive. Be warned this polish is a little hard to work with but the pay off is soooooo worth it!
This polish is in a black jelly base. And it is full of gorgeous silver and blue holo giant circle glitters.
And it is full of blue and silver hex glitters.

The only problem I had with this polish was application. You cant just brush in on as easily as a holo. First I did a very thin coat trying not to pick up the bigger glitters. And then I fished out the gorgeous big circles and dabbed them on top. Add top coat and look how gorgeous it looks!!!


This collection will be available November 16 HERE on their bigcartel shop. As well as their LAST limited edition on 2013! It is called Snowblind and only 40 will be released!! So mark your calendars!
Love this collection! What about you guys? And have you ever seen a movie done by the Soska Sisters? If so which ones?

Movember

Yay for the start of Movember!!!
Much like people sporting pink for breast cancer awareness. Growing out a awesome stashe will rasie awareness for men's health, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health. If you are in the dark about this cause or would like some more information click this link

This cause is important to me because one of the most amazing men I know, my grandpa, died of prostate cancer. He was an amazing man and I was sad to see him go but it makes me happy that he is no longer in pain. Whats more awesome is that my grandpa always rocked a badass mustache. 
Him and I when I was super little obvioulsy.
And below are some older pictures of him and my grandma, sorry they may be a little blurry, they are old pics.

I miss him everyday and that is why I am doing a Movember mani in honor of my grandpa.

For this mani I started off with a base of Lucky 13 Lacquer Softening the Bad Things. It is a gorgeous polish with a light blue base and amazing gold glitters. This polish was limited edition but Lucky 13 has more amazing polish! You can check it out here! I then used Mentality Scoundrel for the stamping. 

I was very lucky to have my friend Joanne surprise me with my first MoYou plate! Rebel Collection 01. Check out their site here.
So I used a different mustache on each nail. 


What are your thoughts on Movember? Do you think it is a good way to support this cause?
I think it may be a fun way support something incredibly important.

A collection of stamps!

Lately I have been trying to use more of my stamping plates. So here are three looks I cam up with last week. :)

First up I have this gorgeous lace stamp from Bundle Monster plate BM323. 
I started with a gorgeous base of China Glaze Keep Calm, Carry On such a gorgeous mint green.
I then used a matte white polish from BornPrettyStore for the stamp. It is honestly the only white stamping polish I use. 


Next I have a gorgeous fall mani! I used Different Dimension PENNY! which you can find HERE. The leaf image I used is from plate BM04 using Essie Good As Gold. The whole Essie Metallic collection is amazing for stamping!
This mani is amazing for fall. I might do another variation of it soon!


And this last one if my favorite! This was my Halloween mani. I used Chirality Devil's Night. I still can not get enough of this polish. It is such a hidden gem that they made this year. A deep plum with an AMAZING blue shimmer! I might have to buy a full size once the funds roll in and if they still have it. *fingers crossed*. And if you want your own bottle, which lets face it you do just check out their Big Cartel store!
The stamp is from Bundle Monster plate BM13 using Matte White from the BornPrettyStore which you can find HERE.  


I have been getting into stamping again lately and I will have some MoYou plates arriving soon so check back in a couple weeks for more fun!!!

Which stamped mani did you like best?
