Nubar Berry Blue Crush

Nubar Berry Blue Crush




Hey, hay, hey! I’ve been dreading Monday and the start of another work week, but what choice do I have? We can’t all win the lottery, quit our jobs, buy a mansion and travel the world…is that my dream? Maybe. I keep wondering about those people who have jobs that they love and can’t wait to get into work. To me, they are as mythical as Unicorns. I want to be a Unicorn!!!!! Anywho, I’ve spent my day running errands, doing laundry and watching stuff on Netflix. I am still obsessed with The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo so I’ve been watching the extended 6 part version as it was aired on Swedish TV and it’s still kind of amazing. I hope that when Hollywood does the other two remakes they are just as great. Personally, I thought the first remake with Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig was very good so I have hope! Moving on to the polish, today I have something simple to show you: Nubar Berry Blue Crush from the Crushed Candy Collection. I really love these fun glitters so let me show you this beauty…

Nubar Berry Blue Crush 1Nubar Berry Blue Crush 2Like most swatches I’ve seen, I layered Berry Blue Crush over black because I love the effect. I wish Nubar was a little more visible because they put out some really great polishes, but I feel like not a lot of people know about them. This glitter was very easy to apply and the clear base wasn’t too thick as is sometimes the case with this kind of polishes.

Lately I’m being very diligent about my spending because I want to buy two things: a new laptop and a new camera. I know I shouldn’t just splurge right now, but I would like to get these two items so that I can work on all my blogging stuff. My blog sale has always gone well so thank you so much to all of you who have made purchases. All of the funds from that are basically going back into my blog so thanks for the support! Well, I hope that you’ve had a nice weekend. Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

Stamping Saturdays #10

Stamping Saturdays #10

Hey! Good Morning? I apparently no longer need sleep since I’ve been up for almost 24 hours straight so excuse me if I start acting like a lunatic…and I mean more than usual. And that’s as far as I got before I completely passed out. haha! I decided to just leave that bit in and continue this morning now that I’ve slept a few hours. Last night I ended up not having much time to think about what I wanted to do for today’s post because I was out so late. By the time I got back home, it was almost midnight, but I knew that I didn’t want to skip my beloved Stamping Saturdays. Sooo…I plopped myself down on the couch to start thinking about my mani and then I started catching up on Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Law & Order…and before I knew it, it was almost 3 am. I did manage to do my mani during that time but it felt like it took me forever! Be warned that this post is picture heavy compared to most of my other posts. Let’s take a look at what I came up with.

Finger Paints Gorgeous Graffiti 1Finger Paints Gorgeous Graffiti 2I don’t usually purchase too many Finger Paints polishes, but lately I’ve noticed that they are putting out some really gorgeous shades. I first saw Finger Paints Gorgeous Graffiti on Yadi’s blog, Night Swatcher, and I knew I had to have it. I totally blame her for my Finger Paints lemmings. Gorgeous Graffiti reminded me of Sephora Formula X Hyped but for less than half the price. Hyped is a little more shimmery and vibrant, but I do think it’s a good dupe if price is a concern.

Nubar Cotton Candy Crush 1Nubar Cotton Candy Crush 2Because the blue shimmer wasn’t enough for me, I decided to apply one coat of Nubar Cotton Candy Crush to brighten my mani. Overkill? I really love this glitter topper!

MoYou London Pro Collection 18For my stamping design, I decided to use the houndstooth design from my MoYou London Pro Collection 18 plate (press sample) because it is a full nail design but also allows the base polish to show through.

You can never go wrong with houndstooth! I love how crisp the design transferred which is due to the special black Konad polish and a great plate. I’ve been using these MoYou London plates regularly, and I absolutely love them!

So what do you think of this mani? Are you on the fence about it like me? I hope that your enjoying your weekend so far, and I will talk to you soon!
