Funky Fingers Glitter Matters

Hey y'all!  After using Glitter Explains It All from Funky Fingers, I realized I absolutely needed the other 2 glitters they had in the trio.  Thankfully they were still at my Five Below when I went back a few months later.

Here it is over Wet N Wild Black Creme.  On the pinky and index fingers, I used one coat.  The middle and ring fingers have 2 coats.  The clear base does sorta mattify anything under it, so top coat is needed.

 

 It's a clear base packed with various sizes of pink and yellow glitters.  The white glitters are matte and hex.  Unfortunately, I think the white sort of overpowers everything else.  I wish it had less of them in it.  Otherwise I really like it.

Stamping - Wet N Wild French White Creme vs Bundle Monster White

Hey y'all!  While testing out the Bundle Monster stamping polishes, I decided to test the white out up against Wet N Wild French Creme.  I'd not used it for stamping before, but it's pretty opaque on its own.  So, I grabbed my BM-414 plate and started playing.

 I used BM Royal Blue(24) as my base, it's a cobalt jelly like polish.

Wet N Wild French Creme is on the middle and pinky fingers while BM Angelic White(1) is on the ring and index fingers.  


Again, my stamping skills aren't the best, but you can see which is the clear winner here.

Stamping - Wet N Wild Black Creme vs Bundle Monster Black

Hey y'all!  I've had this done for a while and thought I'd posted it, but sadly I forgot.  Today I have a comparison post.  While I was playing around with the Bundle Monster Creative Art polishes I grabbed the Noir Black(13) and put it up against Wet N Wild Black Creme.

I started off with a base color of Electric Pink(21), which is a bright pink cream.  It dries flat, so I used Seche over top of it.


I used my BM-408 plate on the pinky and ring fingers and my BM-412 plate on the index and middle fingers.

Wet N Wild Black Creme was stamped on the middle and pinky fingers while Noir Black 13 was used on the index and ring fingers.


Please keep in mind that I'm not a stamping expert yet, so as you can see there are some blank spots in each of the images.

As you can see, Noir Black is super opaque while Black Creme actually looks brown.  It's still a great stamping polish for something from the drugstore, but I really like the Bundle Monster black. :D

Bodycology Scents for Every Kind of Flirt

*Press Samples*

Hey y'all!  Today I have some new products from Bodycology.  When summer flings have lost their magic, spark up a new romance this fall with these alluring scents.  Each scent is available in a Moisturizing Body Cream as well as a Fragrance Mist, they're 8oz. and both retail for $3.99 each.  

Fragrance Mist - For a splash of fragrance and energy, spritz lightly on wrists, neck, and shoulders.  For all-over freshness, spray into air and let the fine mist gently surround you.  Conditioning and hydrating Honey and Aloe Vera provide a burst of refreshment.


Playful Romance Fragrance Mist - Turn heads with the sweet blend of juicy berries and amber creme.  With undertones of oriental floral this fragrance will entice anyone who lets it hit their senses.  Top notes of Apple Blossom, Peach, and Blackberry give a fruity base, leading into mid notes of Frosted Freesia, Jasmine, and Orris Butter, enting with dry notes of Whipped Amber Creme, Sandalwood, and Vanilla Musk, resulting in a scent that will be forever desirable. This one smells more amber with musk and a hint of fruit to me.  

Sheer Innocence Fragrance Mist - The fresh scent of citrus mingled with peony petals and vanilla creme delights your senses.  This light fragrance will give you feelings of heavenly desire.  Top notes of Pink Grapefruit, Dewy Greens, and Honey leading into mid tones of Tender Rose, Jasmine, and Peony Petal, ending with dry notes of Sheer Musk, White Amber, and Vanilla.  This one is more musky and floral.  Of the two, this one is my favorite.


Moisturizing Body Cream - Formulated with Shea, Cocoa Butter, Jojoba Butter, Vitamin E, and Aloe Vera, this luxurious cream penetrates skin to leave it feeling soft for hours.  Smooth over skin, giving special care to dry or rough areas to enjoy long-lasting hydration.

Sweet Seduction - An enticing scent with a succulent blend of fresh petals and apple.  With both floral and fruity undertones this fragrance will captivate your senses.  Top notes of Juicy Orange, Crisp Apple, Melon Water, and Red Plum open this intriguing scent, leading with mid notes of Red Currant, Muguet Petals, Rose, and Sweet Freesia, ending with dry notes of Creamy Sandalwood and Sheer Musk.  Unfortunately, this one just didn't do it for me.  I don't know if it's too artificial smelling or if it reminds me of the BBW scents I used to love in high school.  It is kinda strong though too.  

Instant Attraction - This will electrify your senses with its hints of dark orchid and sparkling pear.  Starting off with top notes of Fresh Ozone, Watery Pear, and Pink Peppercorn leading into the heart notes of Romantic Rose, and Sensual Ylang, and ending with the overall base notes of White Amber, Blonde Woods and Addictive Musk.  This fragrance is known to captivate your senses leaving you with an everlasting scent of intriguing floral.    Out of everything, this is my absolute favorite.  It's rose-y and musky, and feminine.  I will have to get the fragrance mist in this scent.


I really love the body creams, not only is the packaging too cute(and makes me want to do matching mani's), but they're fragrant, moisturizing, and quick absorbing.

Neon Nike Flyknit Air Max Inspired Mani

Hey y'all!  Today is kind of a pictoral, if you will.  The post has a lot of pictures, but I took them after each step of this mani.  I was inspired by a pair of shoes I found on Pinterest, the Nike Flyknit Air Max


I started out with a base of Wet N Wild Black Creme.





Using a fan brush and I brushed Bundle Monster Angelic White(13) onto my ring and middle fingers.  This was to create a base for the colors in the next step to show up more and pop off of the black.





I cleaned off the fan brush while the white dried.  Then I took a few drops of  Funky Fingers Limelight(green), Highlighter(yellow), and Drop The Bass(orange) and placed them on a palette. Dipped the fan brush in each color to make a gradient on the brush, and swept it over the white. 


While THAT dried, I grabbed Funky Fingers Glitter Explains It All and Glitter Matters.  I layered them both over the index and pinky fingers.  Just to add a little extra before topping it all off with Seche. I mean, you can't go wrong with glitter. :D




It's not exactly how I wanted it, but I absolutely love it.  I had to grab some macro shots of it too.



So what do y'all think?  I'm totally digging it & think it's the perfect way to wear neon's if you don't want to fully commit to wearing just a solid neon shade.

Finger Paints Enchanted Mermaid Collection

*Press Samples*

Hey y'all!  Today I have the FingerPaints Enchanted Mermaid Collection which is a LIMITED EDITION underworld inspired textured nail collection.  I've seen/heard some disappointment in this collection.  I can certainly see that, BUT it gave me a great idea....keep reading to see what it is.

All of the swatches below are 2 coats, without topcoat....and probably could've used a 3rd coat on each.

Sailor's Lure -  This is a denim blue with a slight purple shimmer, which didn't really show up too much in the camera.


Sea Temptress -  Pearly, metallic white......opalescent maybe?


Tails of Love - Deep teal that is totally a mermaid shade.


Underwater Enchantress - Forrest-y olive green with kind of a brown base and a golden shimmer.  This totally makes me think of a dragons egg color.

Underwater Enchantress alone made me look at these polishes again.  At first, I thought....they're shimmery polishes that someone decided to throw small clear glitters into to try and attempt the normal sandy-like texture.  Because of the dragons egg look, I instantly thought of using these for the DIY dragon eggs that Accio Lacquer came up with...click HERE to see what I'm talking about. 

FingerPaints can be found at Sally's Beauty Supply.
