Nails of the Week: New Year Sparkle

Hey loves!!

I can't believe that this will be my last post of the year!!! It seems like it was yesterday we were ringing in 2012 and now it's time to do it  all over again - man how time flies. Looking back, I have to admit 2012 was an amazing year for me and I am looking forward to 2013 being even better:). I am claiming that♥!

Whenever I think about the New Years Eve celebrations, only one thing comes to mind....GLITTER!! I don't why NYE screams glitter but I am glad that it does:). For this weeks nails of the week, I used L'Oreal The Mystic's Fortune as a base color. Then added a gold glitter top coat on top of that from Revlon called Heart of Gold FX that has nice size chunks of hearts in to give my nail polish that extra touch. For the accent nail, I used Butter London West End Wonderland - which is a gold and orangey bronze color that I absolutely love. I think nail polish is very festive for the New Year and I hope you guys enjoy it.

Thanks for stopping by. Your continued support means a lot to me:)!! Wishing you and your family a happy New Year and many blessing in 2013.

Happy Sunday everyone,

I love the holidays and how festive everything looks around this time of year:)!! I am a big sucker for anything Christmas. I don't know what that has to do with anything but I decided to share that tid bit of information with Lol

While on vacation in Orlando, my husband and I decided to play a round of mini golf since neither of us have ever played before. Let me tell you, it was a lot of fun and even though we suck and didn't know what we were doing, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves:). Towards the end we started to get the hang of it and on the last hole, my husband hit the ball not realizing that he hit a hole in one to win the game! It was an awesome time and I even got to sneak in a outfit of the day. Hope you guys enjoy!

FYI: Picture heavy!

Hey loves,

Happy Wednesday! I hope y'all are having a good week so far! I am ready for the Holiday and I can't wait to spend time with my family:)!

The other day, I was in Goodwill and came across this skirt from Forever 21. What I liked about it was how famine and dainty it was and how great it looked on. It was priced at $6 and I knew I had to have it. I could never walk away from a good deal and you know you wouldn't either:)! Lol. If you saw my recent Black Friday/Cyber Monday haul, I showed you a black studded top that I got from Forever 21 and I knew it would be the perfect top to pair with it.

I love thrifting because you can find cute and amazing pieces for a few bucks! I hope you enjoy the look!

Skirt: Forever 21 (thifted)
Belt: Chinese Laundry via TJMaxx

China Glaze Polish Metro/Downtown Collection Swatch/Review

Hey loves,

I got a review/swatch post for you guys today. The other day I was at TJMaxx and at the checkout counter, they had some of the China Glaze Metro Collection nail polish for $1.99. I really like China Glaze and I grabbed three colors from the collection.

With Flash Direct 

With Low Flash
From Left to Right: Concrete Catwalk, Westside Warrior & Skyscrapper
I love shopping at TJMaxx because of the great prices and amazing selections of products. I would highly recommend that if you see this collection, definitely pick up these colors as they are perfect colors for fall.

Concrete Catwalk: The color is amazing! I don't own any grays this color and glad I added it to my collection. CC is a very dark charcoal nail polish with no shimmer and a glossy finish. I applied two coats and found the application to be really easy. To top it off, I added gloss to get it that extra shine.

Westside Warrior: As soon as I saw this color, I knew it would be amazing. WW is a deep olive green almost army green nail polish color with a creme finish. When you first look at it in the bottle, it looks boring and unattractive but when you apply it, the color stands out and pops. The color is amazing and you can get away with using two coats. I wanted to deepen the color so I added another coat and found that application wasn't goopy at all and dried to a fantastic finish.

Skyscraper: is a blue base color with a lot of micro silver glitter. If you are like me and LOVE glitter nail polish, then this is a MUST have nail polish. I did not use a base to make the color stand out. The coverage is really good and I applied three coats to get the deserved consistency that I wanted. I had high hopes for this nail polish and it did not disappoint. I would have to say that out of the colors I grabbed from this collection, this would be my favorite one.

This collection is a winner in my book and I am glad I got my hands on these polish at the super discounted price:). I am not at all disappointed with the colors. They have great consistency and goes on smoothly. Great colors to have!
Thanks for stopping by:)!
