Nail Of The Day: It's All Peaches!!!

Yesterday my husband & I ran out to go shopping for our house & our children and I was in the mood for a bright and fun look. The weather was gorgeous and it was such a lovely day I couldn't help but grab right for one of my favorite Summer time colors PEACH!!!




                                                                         Nail Of The Day:

  • Revlon Color Stay Base Coat- I am really loving this base coat. I like it better then the Milani & OPI base coats. I use it all the time with polishes that are not from the Revlon Color Stay line and they always turn out just great!
  • Essie Haute As Hello- I knew for sure I wanted to use this one as my base color!! I am super glad I did!
  • OPI Bright Lights-Big Color-I just dotted this onto my accent nails. I love this polish color so much. If you guys have not seen it in person you must!
  • Models Own Fuzzy Peach-This is my favorite creme peach shade! Just gorgeous and opaque in one swipe. But for this look I just dotted it on my accent nail since it is opaque and darker then Essies Haute As Hello!
  • Revlon Color Stay Top Coat- I also have been really enjoying this top coat. I used one coat of this!

     I hope you guys like the look I came up with!!!

Collections: Perfume!!

Okay let me just start off by saying I am a perfume junkie! I always have been. One main reason I like to have variety with my perfumes is to compliment what mood I am in. Perfume is just one of those items I just can not seem to get enough of. So I thought you guys might like to see my Collection!=D



Stephanie's Perfume Collection:

*Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh- This has been one of my favorites for a while. I use it quite sparingly since it is a bit pricey I will say that MJ marketed this perfectly only putting out gift sets, the 2 oz and 4.25 oz bottle mine is the 4.25 oz bottle and retails for $88 dollars. It is pricey but so worth it. I get soooooo many compliments when I wear this perfume! A must have for me.

The other ones I put up and the ones I love that are to tall for my shelf I stick on a shelf higher up above my cabinet with all my hair goodies. Two of my VS perfumes & Two of my B&BW body fragrances are way to tall! Lol To store my samples I put them in my old B&BWs candles glasses that I have cleaned out!=D Sadly these were not all my samples. Just the ones I kept! Lol I hope you guys like my collection. Let me know if you have any fragrances that you love that I should check out.

Born Pretty Store Review: #70 Polish!

In early December I was contacted by the lovely Echo from BornPrettyStore and she told me how she loved my nail art work and if I would like to review a product from her wonderful store. I of course jumped at the chance. I have followed Born Pretty for a very long time. Mainly on Facebook so I of course already knew of the online store. I have also heard tons of people on YouTube rave about items they have purchased from the site! So I choose to review....Of course a nail polish!!! LOL Now you guys should know everything in this review is 100% my true opinion. I rarely find items that I dislike and if I dislike something more times then none I will not even bother writing about it unless it is so bad that I must warn followers about it. I also have a habit of looking up reviews of items before I purchase them. So I rarely have hiccups with items I have done research on.

My package from Born Pretty arrived in about 4 weeks. But sadly that was around the time I started having issues with my nails cracking and splitting. It took about 3 weeks to get it under control. I wanted to use this polish that I was sent so bad but had to let my nails heal and they did with the help of Sally Hansens Hard As Wraps Powerful Acrylic Gel. I also knew I wanted to pair this with a red polish but had to go out and find it since I usually don't wear a lot of Red polishes. But when I found Loreals Devil Wears Red I knew it was the perfect polish to pair with #70 glitter polish I got from BornPrettyStore.com



My Thoughts on #70 Glitter Polish:

*This polish is a gorgeous glitter polish like nothing I have in my collection. It has small golden glitter, & Hexagon shaped glitter in Red, Bright Blue, & Gold, the base is clear.

*The consistancy of the polish is medium. It can be easily layered thinly. I like that when you use this glitter you grab and hold enough of the glitter to coat the nail in one pass. Usually with nail polish that have bigger glitters you have to go back over to get enough of the larger glitter onto your nail. I did not have this problem with #70.

*The only con would probably be the smell. It is a bit strong compared to other polishes. But I am not sensitive to smell. But if you are then I would pass on this. But if your not then this is a great glitter polish.

*The packaging is super cute and I love the angled top!


What I have on my nails:


*Sally Hansens Hard As Wraps Powerful Acrylic Gel as a base coat- I love this and use it often because it saved my poor nails Lol

*Loreal Devil Wears Red- I applied two coats of this. I am really enjoying this color. But I really dislike the brush on this one!

*#70 Glitter Polish from BornPrettyStore- I applied this in one coat to my accent nails! I love the look of it!!! Especially the gold with the red!!

*Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat- I used one coat of this, it coated the glitter perfectly and it is 100% smooth!



FINAL LOOK(without flash):



I hope this review helps you guys and I hope you guys go and check out BornPrettyStore they have some great products on their site and this for sure is one of them!

FTC: #70 Polish was provided by Born Pretty Store for my consideration for review. I did not have to review item but choose to because of it's quality. Everything else that is noted was purchased by myself. I am not being paid for my opinion.

NOTD: Revlon Whimsical + Blue Lagoon!!

So this morning I really wanted to try out a polish I hauled the night before from Rite Aid. I had seen Revlon's Whimsical online but never actually looked for it. But last night while I was not even looking for it. I found it at Rite Aid!! I am so excited that I did. I know the Internet has been buzzing about this nail polish. I could tell from looking at the bottle that it was going to be pretty sheer so I decided before I even got it home that I knew exactly what polish I had that would go perfectly and that is another Revlon polish named Blue Lagoon that I picked up during the Summer=D


*Blue Lagoon (on left) has tiny blue iridescent shimmers in it so it really added to the look of Whimsical.

*Whimsical (layered on top of Blue Lagoon on Right) I love the color of the glitters blue & pink and it also contains silver smaller glitter as well!

*As a base coat I used Sally Hansen's Powerful Acrylic Gel it leave a smooth base and makes my nails very firm.

*For Top Coat I used Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat my nails are totally smooth and you can't feel the glitter at all.


I hope you guys like my NAIL OF THE DAY and let me know if you guys have checked out Revlon's Whimsical!!
