Birthday Nail Mail Part 1

Hello lovelies!

I hope you are all having a great week so far! Mine has been pretty uneventful but I'm okay with that! Gives me a chance to catch up here!

I am excited to be part of another birthday group this year! April is my month for the group even though my birthday is in March. Which is cool though because it's kinda like getting to celebrate my birthday for 2 months! :) So far I have received 7 out of 11 gifts so I wanted to share at least the first 6 with you and will do another post once the rest have all been received!

My gift from Mandy B! Zoya Vespa (my first textured polish!), Hare Own Your Opulence and Hooky at the Hamlet! All such perfect colors! Love the softlips too, my lips are still recovering from winter!

And from Mandy R.! (of Puzzled and Polished) Jade Joy, Candeo Fallen and Gosh Silky Mint! Mandy also made me a beautiful mint green polish ring! Love the colors, especially the mint! I am excited to try the nail decals! Also check out that cute little makeup bag!

Here is my next gift from Debbie! Models Own Southern Lights, Butter London Trusafarian, Glitter Gals Glossy Moss, Barry M Station Road & Racing Green and Orly Fresh! Wow! So many amazing polishes! And I love all the little extras especially the Chicago souvenir ones! :)

 Next up is my gift from Marfi! Models Own Golden Green, Color Club Revvvolution, Butter London Slapper, China Glaze Unpredictable and Sparkles by Julie Waterlily! So excited about all of these! And I love the cute little tin with my name on it and the heel softener is great for my year round flip flop wearing!

Here is what I got from Diane (of All You Need Is A Little Polish)! NCLA Hollywood Hills Hot Number (OMG so much holo glittery goodness!), Butter London Two Fingered Salute and a-England Dorian Gray! Love the polishes and look at all those amazing extras! Chocolate, a nautical inspired makeup bag, lip balm, mini face wipes, and a mini journal!

And last one for today, my gift from Kristal (of Bull City Beauty)! Sephora by OPI Nifty Shades of Grey, Zoya Liberty & Dahlia and Butter London Macbeth! All so beautiful! Macbeth is going to look amazing on my toes! :) Also the best smelling cuticle oil, hand lotion (I LOVE fig!) and more lip balm!
I feel so spoiled already and there is still more to come! I love my birthday girls! They are all so down to earth and drama free and I love shopping for them! Do yourself a favor and check out their blogs/pages too! :)

NOTD: Urban Outfitters Green Holo

Hey lovelies!

I hope you all had a great weekend! I have another mani to show you today and it's pretty amazing!Urban Outfitters Green Holo is a super intense light blue-green holo. Like seriously amazing. In my opinion even better than the China Glaze OMG collection! I was so excited to get this in a swap!

I started with a base of Julep Nail Therapy (my go to lately) and used 2 thin coats of Green Holo followed by a coat of Hong Kong Girl. Such a gorgeous color and so eyecatching!! I apologize in advance for the ridiculous amount of photos!

Absolutely I must have in any holo lovers collection! I can't wait to get my hands on some of the other colors, you can also get silver, pink, black or purple. If you can't find these in store you can also purchase them on Urban Outfitter's website but do it quick! At $10 each these won't stick around!

Do you like holos? What are your favorite brands?

NOTD: Barry M Mint Green & Zoya Gilty

Hello lovelies!

Hope life has been treating you all great! I have been super busy but am finally working on getting caught up on blogging! Woo! :)

I am super excited about this mani, ever since the first time I used Zoya Gilty I knew I would want to use it over a mint polish next! Enter Barry M Mint Green!

A couple words about the Mint Green itself-AMAZING! Okay maybe just one word! Seriously though, great application! And coverage was great! I used 2 coats and then 2 dabbed coats of Gilty and topped it all off with a thick coat of Hong Kong Girl. Perfection!

Okay so I may have had a hard time narrowing down pictures. . .

What do you think? Do like the gold flakes better over a lighter or darker color?
