Blog Sale! Nail Polish Blowout!


Hey guys!

Today I am here to share with you guys a sale I have.

I decided to purge all of the nail polish that I no longer like and use. On top of that, I am going to be moving by the end of the year and figured it would be better to sell some stuff to lighten the load and plus more money for my move, the better!

To make it easy on myself, I decided to post them all on Pinterest.

Most of the pics, I found online. I mentioned in the description if anything needed to be noted, like polish level, discoloration, etc. If there was severe discoloration or huge usage, I knocked down the price accordingly.

I have a bunch of indies, and tons and tons of high end, middle of the road, and low priced polishes. They are all cremes either, I am selling a bunch of chunky glitters, metallics, a couple holos, and some texture polishes.

If anyone wants to buy anything or just take a look, here is my board:

If anyone is ready to purchase, I set up an account on Pay Pal. My email for my account is vmshaw320@hotmail.com

Thanks everyone, I hope you all find something you like and I appreciate you all following my blog. I will be back with an actual nail post soon, keep watch!

I Need Your Help With Ideas, Everyone!

Hey guys!

Today, I don't have a manicure to show you, or a haul, or anything in the past I have blogged about.

This is something else different indeed.

For a while I was thinking about this idea, and then I went ahead and just went for it.

It has been a while now since the lovely lady over at Lace and Lacquers has done a Manicure Mondays Giveaway post. For those who have no idea what Manicure Mondays are, it was a weekly blog post where she would compile all of the giveaways that have come up during the week or have been ongoing and were still active up until that Monday.

I was missing the weekly posts, so I asked her if I could take them over and she said I was totally welcome to.

I am here today cause I would like some suggestions, opinions, and help.

I want to change up this feature a little bit. I want to change it from Mondays to Wednesdays. I decided that cause everyone needs something on a Wednesday to get them through the rest of the week. And I also want to change the name up a bit. It is still nail polish giveaways, but I need help thinking of a name that is catchy and that includes Wednesdays.

Then, after the name, I could use some help coming up with a logo or banner or something that I can use each time I do this feature of the week. Of course, I will also need each and every one of your help with links and such to any giveaways you spot before the next Wednesday on pages or blogs or Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, any social media.

I would love to make this a big part of my blog and something to help consistently keep me blogging every week.

So if you guys have any suggestions for a name, let me know. Then let me know of any giveaways you come across.

Thanks to all of my followers who keep up with my blog. I hope you guys are excited for this new feature!

Vacation Nails!

*Products Are My Own

Hey guys!

Sorry I have been away for a little while. I was on a trip last week, and then stuff in my life happened that I don't wanna talk about but it made me rethink things in my life, so I was preoccupied.

I did my nails before my trip, which was to Texas to see my sister and her husband, and I took a pic of them as I was connecting from one flight to the next. I just haven't been up to posting this mani until now. I figured I should do it before the month is over.

Right before I went on my trip, I painted my nails with two different, lovely blues. Here are my nails in between flights:


This was taken with my Iphone 5 so excuse the quality of the photo.

On all of my fingers except my ring finger, I used Revlon Colorstay: Gel Envy in Try Your Luck. It is a nice metallic navy blue with micro shimmer. I have on three coats with topcoat. I really like this color a lot. It has a lot of dimension in the light. I forgot to put the Colorstay: Gel Envy top coat so it didn't last as long as it could, but it did last almost all week.

On my ring finger, I have Sinful Colors in Tealing Power. It is a nice bright teal filled with white and silver shimmer and flakies. I did three coats with topcoat. This color comes from their Stoned: Crystal Shimmer collection. I love this color. While it looks like something already out there, honestly I can't picture any other brand that has a polish even close to this one.

Both polishes can be purchased at Walgreens. Revlon can be found in any drugstore or big box store with a makeup section near you.

Well, that's all I have for you for now. I will talk to you all later, bye.

Covergirl Outlast: Stay Brilliant in Fuchsia Flame

*Products Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

I am back today with another lovely Covergirl Outlast nail polish.

I had this one swatched for quite a while, but just haven't had the motivation to get around to posting about it. I was off today so I figured today should be the day.

This is Fuchsia Flame! It is a lovely dark pink/purple filled with micro silver/holo glitter.


I did three coats by itself. This is such a pretty color, and I love the subtle glitter. I love that is has a little bit of a color shift from dark pink to purple to medium pink in the light. 


Cleanup on this was okay, but it did stain the cuticles a little bit, as you can see on my pointer finger.

Covergirl Outlast nail polishes retail for around $6 in most drugstores and superstores.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I will talk to you all later, bye!

Sinful Colors: Sinful Shine's Coveted Prosecco

*Product Purchased By Myself

Hey guys!

I am back today to share with you the nail polish that was the hottest thing around about a year ago when it came out, Prosecco!

I finally was able to find it in Walgreens one day. I had been wanting it since I saw it posed by a polish blogger when it first came out. I went looking all over, every store that I knew sold Sinful Colors. I hadn't seen it ever in stores until a few weeks ago. I was so excited to finally add it to my collection, and I had to show you guys. 

I know you guys all know of this color and what it looks like, but I am too excited to really care right now!

Here it is again, Prosecco!


This is a wonderful light brown/beige/grey polish filled with micro golden flecks. I say three different colors cause depending on the light, it can shift in color, as you can tell in my photo above.


I did three coats by itself. It is such a gorgeous color! I think it was well worth the buy, definitely. Well worth the wait, as well. It is so sparkly and such a unique color. It held up decently as it is supposed to be like a gel, but I think it could have held up better.

Sinful Shine polishes can be found in stores like Walgreens for $2.99.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I will talk to you all later. Bye!

Revlon's Stunner

*Products Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

I am back today with some animal print!

I remember a little while back, leopard print glitter nail polish was all the rage. I love animal print in general, so I had to try this trend. I wasn't able to get a hold of any cause as far as I knew only indies did leopard print glitter.

I recently was out at Walgreens and spotted the Revlon nail polish display, and noticed they had a new polish shade. I was surprised to see they made a leopard spotted glitter topper.

It is called Stunner, and I topped it over Loreal Paris' Brit Invasion, which is a mauvey-brown with holo glitter. I did two coats, but had to fish out all of the chunky leopard glitter.


It has micro small gold and white glitters, white bar glitter, and white leopard/cheetah chunky glitters. Like I mentioned, it was very difficult to get any of the leopard glitter out. For that reason, I don't recommend that you pick up this glitter unless you are okay with fishing out your glitter, which I am not.

I really like the look, cause I love animal print, but the struggle is not worth it at all. If you really want this though, you can pick it up anywhere they sell Revlon for around $7.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I will talk to you all later, bye!

High End Time! Shimmers and Glitters, Oh My!

*Products My Own

Hey guys!

I am back today with my first new post for the new year!

I wanna show you three new-ish polishes I got, and these are all high end polishes.

First up, this one is from CND Vinylux. This color is called Fragrant Freesia. It is a light pink/beige with lovely small clear-silver flakies throughout. I did three coats by itself. I really like this color. Typically I go for bright colors or darker shades with impact or glitter filled ones, but this one really interests me. I love the color shift in the light from beige to pink and the flakies make it so pretty.


Next up, this one shifts gears to something more bright and fun. This is from Butter London, and the name of it is Inky Six. It is a glitter packed aqua. It has a dark blue base packed full with blue and teal micro glitters that make this look aqua on the nail, though my camera couldn't capture that. I did three coats by itself. This is such a fun color, I haven't seen colors like this in a while.


Last up, this one is from Illamasqua. This one is called Phallic. It is a super dark navy with micro blue shimmer throughout. I did three coats by itself. This one is a bit sheer. I had the most trouble photographing this one. I swatched this one weeks ago, but it didn't come out good so I decided to try again and I managed to get a decent shot.


CND Vinylux polish is found in salons and on loxabeauty.com. It can be purchased anywhere from $6 to $11.

Butter London polishes can be purchased from Nordstrom, Ulta, Amazon, TJMaxx, and other retailers. You can purchase these from around $4.99 at TJMaxx and $18 in other stores.

Illamasqua so far can be found on their website and on Amazon. They retail for around $18.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now, I hope you enjoyed! I will talk to you all later, bye!
