The mani I have to show you is one that I wore right before I started my "Think Pink" week. I did this design to celebrate my amazingly wonderful friend's senior recital (it's basically a small concert a student puts on to complete their studies as a music major). She was fabulous as always!
My idea was to do something related to "concert black". And then I got to thinking that my friend will definitely end up on stage at the Met someday so I tuxedo-ed them up!
Colors Used: Rimmel - Black Satin, Konad - Special White, Sally Hansen - Pumping Iron, Julep - Vanessa
I started with 2 coats of Black Satin and then free-handed the white tux shirt. I then took my dotting tool and made the bow tie and buttons. With a small brush, I detailed the bow with Pumping Iron. I added the striping tape as an after thought and then applied Vanessa to the rest of my nails
I liked the way it came out and my friend was flattered :)
I have a polish haul to share with you right after the jump! Woot!!
I received the Boho Glam box...
In it I found these 2 lovelies! Robin and Daisy :)
I also got a hand/face lotion which has the signature orange-citrus scent to it, love it!
Aaaand I got a vanilla mint lip balm which is just wonderful!
I don't know what happened to the pic of the pixi-stix's they sent me but it was a fun and tasty touch lol. I've read a lot of reviews and comments about Julep recently that have been pretty negative/terrible. I haven't experienced anything awful with their Maven program and for $20 a month I am pleased as punch with everything. For a small company, they really go above and beyond for there customers and I really appreciate it :)
There are the pretties I picked up at Forever 21 this past Friday...
Love & Beauty - Beige, Nude (Ginger Scented), Gold and Crystal/Multi
They REALLY need to start getting more creative with their polish names! Lol. I am in love with the beige. it's practically a one coater, my heart skipped a beat when I first used it! The ginger polish smells unbelievably delicious!! It makes me think of gingerbread men haha. The gold is a really pretty glitter that I think is going to look gorgeous over some of my bold yellow polishes :) The crystal looks like broken pieces of rainbow foil in a bottle. I can't wait to try this one out as well!
Lastly, my "not-church mani" (If you have no clue what I'm talking about refer to yesterdays post here)...
Colors Used: Love & Beauty - Beige, Sally Hansen - Mellow Yellow, Julep - Rose, Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
My dress is a maxi dress that's similar to this one in cut but with the coloring a vertical striping of my nails and I looooove it!
Ok, that's it! That's all! I hope this post makes up for the last 2 day's being pretty lame :P
Until next time!
