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!
