Revlon Whimsical ~ Glamorized

Hola Chicas,

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!!!!

Todays post is featuring Revlon Whimsical, I know this polish has been on the wanted list of many of you, I was lucky to get mine from Maria at Nails Made Simple, I have noticed the displays only come with 2 of each polish so it is kind of hard to get a hold of one, but I have been seeing them around more :)

Anyways this polish is really pretty on its own, but I couldn't leave it alone and I added more glitter!

Whimsical layered over Color Club New Bohemian:

My Assistant's Picture of the day: Picture of himself ;)

For this mani I used:
Color Club: New Bohemian from Back to Boho Collection
Revlon: Whimsical
For the Gradient I used~
**The pink was a mixture of a WnW & Essie (but I can't remember their names, sorry)
Color Club: Platium Record from the Backstage Pass Collection

Hope you all have a great week, don't work too hard :-P

Til next time....

Pretty in Pink ♥

Hola Chicas,

TGIF!!!!!! Another Twinsie Friday is here. This week we decided to go with "colors" Maria suggested Pink and Red, I agreed immediately! As much as I love pink I don't use it often, so this was a great opportunity to do so :) I had so many ideas in mind, but when I tried to translate them to my nails they didn't seem to come out as I had pictured them.

I ended up doing some needle marbling, which honesly I thought it was easy to do! I was WRONG, I need to practice and maybe look up some tutorials. I was not too happy with my results, I decided to add some stamping to kick it up a bit :)

So here it is...

Here is what I used for this mani:

Loreal - Target Red ~which was a gift from Nory at Fierce Makeup and & Nails, thanks Nory <3
Revlon Colorstay - Cafe Pink, I loved the formula of this polish
Northern Light Top Coat ( I love this stuff I want to put it on every mani :-p)
WnW White French Cream for the stamping
Red Angel Plate: RA 116

My Assistant's Picture of the day:

I can't wait to see what my Twin has done with these colors :) Stop by Nails Made Simple and check it out for yourself too!!!!

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Mint Sorbet on Concrete!

Hola Chicas,

I hope you are all having a great start to your week!

The other day I ordered Konad Plate m83, I do not own many "original" Konad plates because I think they are expensive, but this one I had to have and it was worth the almost 7.00 dollars I paid for it.

I had to use it immediately, so this is what I came up with:

When I was done with this mani I was taking pictures, then I heard my son laughing saying "look what I did mami" I turn around and this is what he is showing me....

OH YES, he fixed it!!

My assistant's picture of the day:
He was taking pictures of his great grandma :)

For this mani I used:
China Glaze: Concrete Catwalk
Sally Hansen: Mint Sorbet
Konad Plate: m83

The Black Knight's Brother.... mmmmmmmmm

Hola Chicas,

YAY!!!! Back with Twinsie Friday, after what seems like a LONG LONG break from our twin posts we are back!!!! We are such busy people hahahha ... For todays post Maria and I decided to post a Franken to Butter London The Black Knight!

Maria and I inform eachother of basically every polish we buy :-P or any ideas we come up with etc etc etc..... Not long ago Amanda at Fashion Footing did a post showing The Black Knight Dupe... She posted the items used to create it and I had them so I decided to do it. Then I texted Maria and told her about it, well it turns out she had made her own dupe of  The Black Knight too :-P (& had kept it a secret from me.. shame on you Maria).....  So we decided to post that for you guys today!

I'm pretty sure you are all familiar with this polish and how to make the dupe, but if you are not all is needed is black polish and Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink! Simple right... and ohhh sooooooo PRETTY!!!

My assistant did not want me to take pics of my hand  (no more nail polishhhhh)...........

Now as I mentioned before I'm going to share pictures my son takes, so here is a picture of a Krabby Patty, he had asked me for one and I thought he ate it, but instead he was taking pictures of it.  This one is really cute, I wish I had a top angle of this Krabby Patty because it is a HEART SHAPE for Velentines of course for those of you who are not Valentines HATERS like Maria <3

Hope you guys have a wonderful day, can't wait to see how Maria's Franken turned out :) Stop by Nails Made Simple and check it out for yourself :-P

Essie Raspberry .... +OPI Tennage Dream

Hola Chicas,

Hope you are all having a great day!

Once again I bring another Reverse Gradient.. I really love the look of it!

***WARNING: the color of this polish is not accurate in my pics*** In real it is not a bright red, it has a darker tone to it!!!

I have mentioned in the past that my son hates it when I take pictures of him, he always runs and hides... BUT lately he has got into the habit of taking my camera then goes around taking pictures of random things.... So I will start sharing some of those with you guys :-P He is really good at photographing nail polish bottles oooohhh mama taught him well!!!

First we have a picture of an earing & OPI Tennage Dream in the back.....
China Glaze Ruby Pumps & My mom in the background painting her nails :-P

For the mani shown I used:
OPI ~ Tennage Dream
A Sponge
Revlon Top Coat
