China Glaze Lite Brite Collection, Summer 2016

Hullo lovelies!  Sorry for being so absent this month.  Kids, family and extra curricular activities have been adding up and sadly it's my little blog that's been shunned to the back burner.  I still love my blog and my readers!  So today I figured I'd share the awesome new china Glaze Lite Brite collection.  This is their  Summer collection and as we all know China Glaze loves to put out neons at this time of the year.  Neons can be tricky, sometimes dull or chalky.  But not the Lite Brite Collection!  I was very pleased with the formula of each one of these and was also pretty darn happy that this was a mix of cremes, shimmers and jellies.  Anywho, the Lite Brite collection is currently available and if you long for searing neons in gorgeous shades and finishes I suggest you hustle to the beauty supply shop and pick up a few (or all 12) of these!

Cupcake Polish Butterfly Collection; Spring 2016

Good evening lovelies!  I wanted to share a second post with you today because I thought you'd want the heads up on this new collection from Cupcake Polish!  It's called the Butterfly Collection and it's all linear holo goodness.  I really like the shades in this 6-piece set, they aren't neon but aren't pastel.  They are the perfect in-between pop of color to help your tips stand out on these sometimes gloomy Spring days.  So let me give you the run down on the deets for this collection.  The launch is TOMORROW (4/24) at 11am CST.  They should retail for about $13, and there is typically a discount promotion for the whole collection that runs for the first 24 hours.  Since I don't have the exact information for the pricing make sure you check the Cupcake Polish Facebook and Instagram pages.  So let's delve in and check out these holos!

Zoya Petals Collection; Spring 2016

Good morning!  Tomorrow is officially Earth Day!  So I thought it was fitting to share the Zoya Petals Collection with you because it's that time of the year when Zoya offers their awesome Earth Day Exchange.  Let me fill you in on the promo this year and then we'll jump into the pictures featuring the Spring 2016 Petals Collection!  Every year Zoya has a fabulous offer where you can send in your unloved or used up nail polish to be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner and in return you get a 50% off discount code to buy new, gorgeous Zoya nail polish.  The catch is you just pick at least 6 bottles (and up to 24), use the code ZGREEN for 50% off and free shipping at checkout.  Then follow the instructions to send in your polish.  This is runs on the honor system so do the right thing!  Send in your exchange polish or donate it to a local cause.  And that's it!  Just in case you need more info, here's the direct LINK to Zoya's Earth Day Exchange page.  

Now that you know about the promo, let's talk about the Petals Collection.  Petals is a heavy pink-coral collection of shimmery shades that is reminiscent of flowers.  I like that the shimmer has varying degrees of strength, from subtle to in-yo-face.   The Petals Collection is currently available on the Zoya site and you can pick them up for $10 each.  I also saw that Zoya has Hot Lips that match the polish shades, cuteness!  Alright, time to jump into the post!

Lady Queen Stamping Plates: Crown Dappled Floral Pattern Manicure Template Lace Series BC3, and Cube Rectangle Circle Pentagram Nail Art Stamp Image Plate hehe003

Good evening!  I'm just sitting here nursing aches and pains from last nights soccer game, feeling stuffed from dinner, waiting for my cookies to finish baking. I'm also trying to get caught up on a few posts to share with you so I wanted to share one now.  This one features some stamping plates from Lady Queen, a one stop shop for all your nail art needs!  I've only stamped a handful of times in the 4 years I've been blogging and am still not so confident with it, so please know that my stamping skills are not up to par with some of the other fabulous nail bloggers out there.  But I will say that both of these plates were easy to use and the only problems I had were due to my inexperience with stamping.  Lady Queen has worldwide shipping and you can save 15% with my code GCLC15.  Before we jump in here are the links; Crown Dappled Floral Pattern Manicure Template Lace Series BC3, and Cube Rectangle Circle Pentagram Nail Art Stamp Image Plate hehe003.  So now let's take a look at the plates!

Darling Diva Polish Deadpool Collection (names are NSFW - you've been warned)

Hello lovelies!  Happy Friday! I've got a large post for you today featuring the brand new Darling Diva Polish Deadpool Collection.  Ok I have to admit that I haven't seen this movie yet but the names crack me up and the colors are amazing.  So even if you aren't a fan of Marvel/comics/Deadpool/Ryan Reynolds you can still enjoy this collection. Especially if you talk like a sailor, like I do.  But as I mentioned in the post title, some of the names on these polishes aren't for young eyes or to be uttered in a work environment...unless you are a pirate.  Seriously though, swear words, sexual've been warned again.  The Deadpool Collection launches tonight 4/8 at 7pm Central.  So let's jump in and check out this awesome collection.

I started off with lipstick, which is kind of funny since when I put on a whole face of makeup I typically do lipstick last.  But it was a day of firsts so why not, right?  Here are the products I had; a tinted lip stain, a light colored lip balm and 2 full coverage lipsticks.
