Zoya Carter Pixie Dust Nails!

Just a quick post tonight of a Zoya Pixie Dust Swatch! I bought "Carter" recently and wanted to just wear it plain. Plus last time I tried a pixie dust gradient it came out kind of weird I thought.

This color is gorgeous though, I took these photos outdoors, which is unlike me usually. I was down the Cape at my Aunt's house when I wore these so I didn't have my light box. Plus it's better to see the sparkle outside. Do you guys like textured polish?

Born Pretty Stud Review

It's revieeewwww time guys!

I have some fun Born Pretty Store studs today! I did a pretty simple look with the round gold studs on top of a few polishes. These were pretty sparkly. I used my only OPI DS for the first time as the base color, then added a pink glitter gradient which you can barely see. It's there, I swear...haha. Then I added a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust to make it even more sparkly. Gold studs on top, top coat, done!

The studs came in a wheel full of different silver and gold studs. There are circles, squares, stars, hearts, triangles, diamonds and rectangles. So many options! I can't wait to use others! The whole wheel is only $3.99 and they have free shipping! Plus you get 10% OFF if you use my coupon code: XCL91

Do you think they're flashy enough? Haha.







In the sunlight!

Sunset Stripe Nails

Hey everyoneeeeee

I loved the mani I'm about to show you. It's just stripes really, but I used some funky colors. They reminded me of the end of a sunset, like this photo I took in Bar Harbor:

Top of Cadillac Mountain, Bar Harbor

I did three thick stripes first for these, and then used my thin striping brush to add the rest of the colors.

Red Sox Nails!

Hey! Thanks for all the Blogiversary love!

I have some sports nails tonight. I'm not a big sports person at all, but I love going to games because they're way more fun than on tv. Me and 3 of my girlfriends try and go to at least one Red Sox game every year, so we went to the game this past Tuesday. Obviously I had to do some Sox nails...I did the Red Sox logo on my middle finger, a baseball nail, and some red & blue nails.

Oh and we won the game!!
