Zoya Dannii with BM stamp

Hello fellow bloggers!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic start to their week.  I'm not crazy about my week yet.  My honey had a family emergency and is out of town until Saturday.  boo!  I do wish him and his family the best though.  So until he gets back, it's just me and my fur baby, Monster.

Now on to the fun stuff.  Today I'm going to show you my simple mani from Sunday that I'm taking off today.  It didn't really last that long at all.  The next day it had already chipped at the tips, however I was working really hard yesterday.  Whatever I decide to do for the rest of the week, I'll be a bit more gentle on it.  But anyway, I bought this polish at Ulta about 2 weeks ago and had yet to use it, but I'm pretty psyched I did.  It's gorgeous.  Hope you like it!

Blog Tag: What's In Your Purse?

Hey Everyone!  I wasn't tagged to do this post but it looked like so much fun, and it's a really good excuse for me to clean out my purse. (:  I am warning you now, there are a lot of pictures and A LOT of junk ahead.  I'm also not great at taking pics, but I did my best.

This is my super large purse.  Yes!  It's neon orange.
It's a Jimmy Choo.  
My makeup bag, wallet, and junk pouch that I got from Urban Outfitters.
All my makeup from the bag includes Cover Girl powder, Hard Candy blush, Rimmel Eyeshadow, and lots of eyeliner.
All in this pouch is spare change, nail glue, off brand Neosporin, Hello Kitty Band-Aids, hair clips, and extra earrings.
My F21 sunglasses in my Dior glasses case.  I try to deceive people. lol.  The case is actually from my regular glasses.  They are Dior frames.
Zune w/ skully ear buds, vitamins, blotting papers, Burt's Bees lip balm, keys, Gold Bond hand cream, Burt's Bees cuticle cream, plastic spoon?, F21 work badge, a Jarrito's bottle cap?, my pool tag and mail key, and my little red flashlight that NEVER works.  See.  Just junk!
shopping list, my dental business card, and receipts from Chick-fil-A, Wal-mart, and Sally's Beauty Supply.  This doesn't include the ones that are in my wallet.

 Dump your purse, answer the questions, and tag 5 bloggers to find out what's in their purse.

Q. Where did you get your purse and how long have you had it?
A. I got it from my mother-in-law for Christmas 2 years ago.  It's my Spring/Summer purse.

Q. What are 3 must-haves in your purse? (not including keys and wallet)
A. I guess my work badge, Neosporin, and Band-Aids.  I hurt myself a lot at work.

Q. What is something you should have in your purse right now but don't?
A. MONEY! lol No but really. 

Q. What is the thing you have most of in your purse right now?
A. Definitely makeup.  Way too much makeup.

Kirsten from Glitta Gloves
Jen from The PolishAholic

I can't wait to see what everyone else has in their purse and I hope I didn't bore you as much a this little fur ball.
This is my little Monster and she watched the whole thing go down.  This is her rolling her eyes.  She's can't even look at me she's so embarrassed.

Ulta Starstruck and Orly Snowcone

So today I have for you a really pretty mani that I received multiple compliments on.  I went on a crazy polish spree at Ulta and came home with some amazing things and these are a few of them.  I haven't done a sponged mani on myself in awhile and since I picked up this great glitter, I thought it was my perfect opportunity.  I really love it over the different blues which I have really been drawn to lately, and I don't even like blue. (:

So on my pointer and pinky finger, I first did 2 coats of Orly Snowcone and then I sponged on the Starstruck after.  On my middle and ring finger, I used Ulta Blue Streak and repeated the glitter.  It's very simple and easy, but really fun.  I highly enjoyed it and after 4 days of wear, it's still perfect and considering what I do for a living, my fingernails are always janky.  I am a visual merchandiser BTW if anyone didn't know.

Well I hope you all had a great day and enjoyed what I had for you.  Now I have to go come up with some new manicure to satisfy myself with.

Sponged mani and My First Acrylic Trial

Hello All!

I just wanted to post some quick pics of a sponged manicure I did for a friend.  She even asked me to try and do acrylic nails on her and somehow I managed to successfully do them, and I gotta say...they look pretty good.  I'm not too keen on the fake nail thing but I did practice on my own pointer finger first and it came out great also.  I will post some pics tomorrow of mine and of my polish haul from today.  I had to go to the ghetto for these LOL!  No, but really.  I did.  So stay tuned!  Night fellow polishers!

The lighting is terrible but we just finished them and it's dark out.
