Bobbi Brown + American Apparel Half Moon Mani

Hey everyone! Today I have a cool half moon mani for you. This is my first Bobbi Brown polish and I have to say I love it! I also have been in need of a color like this after a MAC polish I had broke inside my purse :(. Bobbi Brown Black Pearl is a black creme polish with hints of silver shimmer. I used American Apparel Light Year for the half moon. Light Year, like most heavy glitter polishes, is very thick and hard to apply. This mani took a surprising long time because of it! But it turned our pretty cute, I think!

Better Late Than Never- Christmas Sweater Mani

Hey guys! Today's post is a bit overdue. I did this Christmas Sweater Nail Art a while back and never got around to posting it. I used China Glaze Cranberry Splash for the base, and OPI Alpine Snow for the sweater designs. I think this is such a fun and festive look for winter, even after Christmas is over!

My Take On: China Glaze Cranberry Splash

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing my review of China Glaze Cranberry Splash from their Holiday 2012 collection. Cranberry Splash is a metallic red, I don't know that I would call it Cranberry though. The application is wonderful and I only needed to use two coats. I love this red and I think it will be my go-to metallic red!

Winter Snowflake Mani!

Hi everyone! Tonight I'm sharing this fun winter mani. For the base color, I used half of the Revlon Nail Art French Mix in Sneak Peek. I used the blue half! My review of the color combo is coming soon :). It's a perfect light blue shade and is not sheer at all. For the snowflakes I added China Glaze Glistening Snow. The glitter polish was perfect for these cute snowflakes. 

Hope your winter is warmer than mine! :)

Music Monday: Justin Timberlake, Rudimental, Blood Orange and more

Hi friends! Sorry it has been so long! I've been spending a lot of my free time working on wedding planning so it doesn't leave much room for blogging unfortunately. It's been a while since I had a Music Monday post so I figured it was about that time!

1. Feel The Love- Rudimental ft. John Newman
I had only ever heard this song on Sirius XM and I don't know how popular it really is, but I love it. Very catchy and upbeat. Just cheers me up when I hear it!

2. Suit & Tie- Justin Timberlake ft. Jay-Z
This is JT's newest song. I have been waiting FOREVER for new music from him. I am still undecided on this one, but it needed to be featured.

3. Champagne Coast (Clock Opera Remix)- Blood Orange
A friend of mine shared this with me, and I just love it. Great work music.

4. Soul Killing- The Ting Tings
The Ting Tings may be best known for a song in an iPod commercial, but I find I like almost every single song I hear from them. This track from their newest album is killer. (hah, get it).

My Take On: China Glaze It's A Trap-Eze

Hi friends and Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year's Eve! I know I had a busy break but enjoyed some down time too! Today I'm reviewing another polish from the China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil collection- It's A Trap-Eze. This polish is so fun! It's a light grey/ white polish with glitter of different sizes and in all bright colors. I used three very thin coats of this polish. It's a little tough because glitter can be chunky, but it just takes a little more patience!
