Stamped Gradient

Hello! Today I have a post on 2 new nail products that I recently bought :) I'm so excited for the new mirror effect polishes that are starting to be released! Since I was a little girl all I've ever wanted was a nail polish so shiny that I could see my reflection in it. I bought countless silvers hoping that one would be it but sadly I never found one... until now (kinda)! 
Essie has a new Mirror Metallics collection and I bought a few of them. Today I'll be showing you one that I used in a mani with the newest set of Bundle Monster stamping plates.

The Essie is a nice shiny lavender called, Nothing Else Metals (haha!)
I love how it applied and how shiny it was. I can't completely see my reflection in it like a mirror but I can at least see a sort of shadowy reflection in it! Which to me is cool lol! Overall I think the polish is great and can't wait to use the others I have.

The newest Bundle Monster plates are great too! When I first got them this image on the first plate caught my eye immediately. It's like a sponging effect without all the extra effort and mess. I just like how cool it looks!
I like a ton of images in the new set and I can't wait to tryout some more! I hope you enjoyed this post :)


What I Used:
Metallic: Nothing Else Metals by Essie

Golden Orange

For today's post I have an old mani I did a few months back that I never got the chance to put up until now :) When I bought some of the China Glaze Hunger Games polishes I instantly loved Riveting! It's such a pretty orange! I wanted to wear it two different ways and couldn't decide which one first so I just combined them. I used a matte topcoat on some nails and I loved how the gold shimmer in the polish out. On the rest of the nails I used a polish from American Apparel called Meteor Shower. It has big chunky gold flakes that looked awesome over Riveting! I loved the contrast between the matte nails and the shiny gold flakes!

Galaxy Nails 2

I loved my other Galaxy Nails so much that I decided to try them again! This time I did them in a more bluish gray color and I tried to put a little shape into how I sponged the colors on. I like these a little more than my other ones! I did something a little different with how I tried to add stars too. I dotted on some yellow and then stuck a bigger glitter in the middle. Glaxay nails are just so easy and fun to try out :)

4th of July Water Marble

Happy 4th of July!!!!

For today I decided on a completely different design heehee!
I have these metallic nail stick on accent things that I bought a while ago and haven't got a chance to use. While looking for stuff to use for this mani I found these and thought they'd look cool. I placed some red and blue ones all over one nail. Then I did a red, white, and blue water marble on the rest of my nails. I love how it all looks together! 
I hope those who celebrate have a fun and safe 4th of July!

Red White & Blue Glitter

It's a few days away from the 4th of July and I wanted to share a post of a mani I might wear :)
I recently found a cute glitter polish at Icing called Patriotic Princess. It has red and blue hex glitter and silver stars! For this experimental mani I tried the glitter over red, white, and blue polish. I love it over white but it looks just as good over the blue and red :) I also like the whole mani with all 3 colors! 
The glitter was a little tricky to place on the nail, I had to dab them on in place. That ended up leaving a lot of little bubbles :/ but they weren't as noticeable as they are in the pictures. Other than that I really like the polish and I don't too much mind the bubbles lol :)
