Stamping Saturdays #13

Stamping Saturdays #13

Hey good morning! I just rolled out of bed, and I remembered that I passed out in the middle of putting this post together last night so here I am blogging before breakfast. I don’t know what time you have to be at work in the morning, but I start at 5 am which means that I am up before 4 am during the week. When I get the chance to sleep in a little, it feels like I am cradled by clouds while angels gently sing me awake. I really wish I could be a morning person, but I will never be happy to wake up before 10 am so I’ll just have to deal with it like everyone else. After work yesterday I went polish shopping which is always a disaster waiting to happen because I want one of everything. Since I liked my first ibd polishes, I decided to pick up a few more to see if the quality is consistent. I ended up purchasing two searing neons that I then decided to use for my Stamping Saturdays mani.

ibd Gradient 1ibd Gradient 2I decided to try another gradient now that I have some confidence in doing them. It didn’t turn out as smooth as I had hoped but it looks a lot better than my other efforts. I call this a radioactive sunset!

What do you think of this mani? Do you have anything fun planned for this weekend? I don’t have any plans yet except maybe to go on a shopping binge since Sephora is having a 15% off sale. Someone please take my wallet away now! Anyway, I hope you like today’s mani and thanks a bunch for stopping by. Have a great day!

ibd Haute Frost Collection

Lately I have been feeling like a big pile of poop. I think that part of it is stress related, but I also think that I’m just going through a phase. It seems that I’ve been going through this “phase” for a while now so I’m just getting worn down. Can things just get better already? I’ve been trying to keep myself occupied with polish, but that can only go so far. Last week I went to my nail places, and I ended up buying too much stuff that I’m now regretting. One of my finds included a couple of polishes from a new to me brand: ibd. I’m familiar with ibd because I’ve seen their gel polish line, but I wasn’t aware of their wide range of regular nail polish. The two polishes that I have for you today are part of the ibd Haute Frost Collection which is an 8 piece collection inspired by royal Russian Winters. Let’s take a look at these two polishes.

Aren’t these interesting?! So I just finished watching a couple of episodes of Drop Dead Diva, and I can’t believe that Jane finally came clean to Grayson about her actually being Deb. GHAAAAA! It was heartbreaking when she explained why she didn’t tell him the truth right away. If you haven’t seen this show before, I recommend that you watch seasons 1-5 on Netflix. The show is currently on its 6th and last season so I’m kinda sad about it.  Anyway, back to the nail polish: I’m really impressed with the quality of these polishes and will probably be checking out some of their core colors in the near future. Since I’m still working on thinning out my stash, I have put these up on my blog sale in case you’re interested. What do you think of these two? Have you heard of idb? Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!
