Stamping Saturdays #60

Stamping Saturdays #60

Look at me participating in Stamping Saturdays again! I find it a little funny that I am in such a good mood today because I had such a rotten June. In fact, despite the really crappy start to my month, I’m going out on a positive note because so many positive things are waiting for me right around the corner. I really hope July is a much better month! Anyway, today I wanted to use the mani I’ve been wearing for a couple of days because I couldn’t bare to remove it. I know some of you may hate seeing polishes that you can’t get, but can you begrudge me for wanting to showcase this pretty?1Since Ninja Polish is back, I figured I might as well use one of my favorite polishes from their line: Mystic Glacier. Isn’t just breathtaking?

2 3 It’s very difficult to capture the amazing color shift in this polish, but I think these pictures give you a good sense of how majestic this polish is. I got some new lighting, and I’m still struggling with figuring out the best settings on my camera so excuse these sort of weird pictures.5 6 7I freaking love houndstooth, so I decided to use the houndstooth image from Bundle Monster plate BM-322 and used Mentality Black Opaque for the stamping polish. Pretty, eh?

Currently I’m engrossed in watching Sense8 on Netflix. Have you checked out this new show? It’s freaking amazing! I’m just sorry that it’s only 12 episodes long. Well, I hope that you’re having a great weekend so far. I’m looking forward to a short week for the 4th of July long weekend. Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

Ninja Polish Divinity & Some Stamping

All products featured in this post were purchased by me.

Since it’s hotter than Satan’s crotch lately, I’ve kind of been in a shitty mood. In case you don’t know this about me, I hate the summer. Pretty strange considering I was born and raised in Southern California, right? Well, I was watching the news and it’s supposed to be in the 90’s on Saturday. I am so NOT looking forward to that. I’m going to turn into a raging lunatic trying to stay cool and this is only the beginning. Now we just have to wait for all the lovely wildfires we get each Summer. Anyway, I should stop being such a Summer-hater and just focus on all the pretty nail polish colors that come out during the hot season–yay! Speaking of pretty polish, today I’m showing you a stamped mani that I did with Ninja Polish Divinity as my base.



I’ve previously shown you Ninja Polish Divinity so I’m not going to go on and on about it. It’s glowy. It’s hot. It’s gorgeous. You get it.




And here I decided to use a design from Winstonia Store plate W112 along with the fantabulous Silver Mercedes from Pure Ice. I’m sure people are tired me of saying this, but if you love to stamp, you have to get this polish–it’s stamping perfection for only $2.00. I am very happy with how this mani turned out. I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting to like the Winstonia Store plates as much as I do so I’m pleasantly surprised.

The weekend is almost here–so what big plans do you have? On Saturday I’m going to one of my best friends sister’s wedding. It should be fun but now I have to figure out what to wear and what to do with my nails–decisions, decisions!!! Well, I hope you’re having a nice day and hope your Friday isn’t too crazy although I’m anticipating a shit storm at work tomorrow. Such is life! Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

I had such high hopes for today! I went in to work thinking positive thoughts and telling myself that things aren’t so bad. Well, what do you know? Work didn’t completely suck ass today! I did have to deal with a few psychos, but it wasn’t anything I couldn’t handle. By the time I got out of work, I was feeling good so I headed over to Target to buy a few things–nothing fun: toilet paper, some razors and some laundry detergent. I wanted to treat myself so I got my favorite iced triple venti non-fat caramel macchiato. Once I was done, I was putting my bags in the trunk and I placed my keys in my purse so I could hold on to my yummy Starbucks. I then proceeded to place my bags–including my purse–in the trunk of my car and closed it. I literally saw it happening in slow motion. FUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKK! I didn’t have my phone so it’s not like I could call anyone and even if I could borrow someone’s phone, I don’t have any phone numbers memorized. So I walked back into Target and they let me call AAA. However, AAA couldn’t help me because my wallet was stuck in the car so I couldn’t pay for a membership on the spot. I’ve been a member for a long time, but I let my membership lapse in the last year or so. Anyway, they put me in touch with another local place where they charged me $70 to unlock my car. An hour later, I was on my way home. So, how was your day? I hope not craptacular like mine. Anyway, today I’m going to show you a new pretty: Ninja Polish Divinity!

Ninja Polish Divinity

Ninja Polish Divinity

Ninja Polish Divinity is like Fantasy Fire on crack. In my opinion, this polish is way too opaque to really be used as a layering polish. I don’t have Clarins 230 but I do have Max Factor Fantasy Fire (check out previous swatches of FF here) and it’s one of those polishes that will just take your breath away. As gorgeous as FF is, it’s not really meant to be worn alone because it will need a lot of coats and it’s too small and precious to waste. Divinity is opaque at two coats which is what I applied for these swatches. I also wanted to mention that this polish dries to a satiny finish. In case you were wondering, the formula is perfection.

What a difference some top coat makes! I love how this glows and I just couldn’t stop staring at my nails.

I found it impossible to catch the color shift in this polish when I was photographing it with direct light–natural or artificial. These pictures were taken indoors with very low and indirect lighting.  The gorgeous color shift is very apparent in person but my pictures just wouldn’t capture it. At least these pictures give you an idea of all the amazing colors in this polish.

Anywho, I hope you’re doing well today, and thanks so much for catching up with me today!

Ninja Polish Ambrosia

I worked at 6 am today which is NOT the way I like to start of my Saturday but it wasn’t very busy so I did a lot of reading. I hate not being busy at work!! I did, however, get to listen to some of my co-workers’ conversation which centered around playing the “Who would you rather….” game. Ok, those of you who know me or have been following me for a while now know that I’m not a prude by any stretch of the imagination. However, does that mean that I want to hear that crap at work? NO! Some people are so unprofessional. I’ve been involved in some unsavory conversations in the past, but I try to keep it quiet and not broadcast it to the rest of the office! Anyway, after work I decided to go to my nail places and I kind of bought too much stuff.  Are you ready to see what I got?


This is the Essie Madison Aven-hue Collection for Spring 2013. Ahhh…so purty. The two pink/lavender colors look very similar so I can’t wait to compare them on my nails.


And here I got a selection from the Sation Candylandia and Miss Antoinette Collections. You all know I love me some Sations so I was super excited to find these!! My local places have been seriously lagging in getting these collections so I jumped for joy when I found them. I bought a few other polishes, but I won’t tell you which ones or HOW MANY because I’m just kind of embarrassed. All I have to say in my defense is that work has been hell on earth for me and I really needed some retail therapy. After the polish binge, I headed over to this Vietnamese bakery that has the absolute BEST baguettes and I also bough a few eggrolls which pretty much disappeared before I got to my car. Not only did I have a polish overload, but I also ate some fried delicacies and some really awesome crusty and warm bread with some cheese. Ahhhh….I was in heaven.

Enough of my adventures in heart disease and polish hoarding. Today I’m going to share a new polish from Ninja Polish that came out with Divinity. I could not resist this duo so that’s how my greedy polished hands got these.

What do you think of Ninja Polish Ambrosia? I posted a preview yesterday on Facebook and most people seemed to really like this color. I must admit that while I do think the color is great, it’s just not me. It doesn’t enchant me or make me happy. I’m sure that there are plenty of people who will love this polish and will rock the hell out of it…it just won’t be me.  I found that the formula on this polish is a little thin so I had to apply 4 thin coats, but I think 3 medium coats would be enough. I don’t have many Ninja Polish brand polishes, but I really like the brush on the bottles–the remind me of OPI bottles and brushes which are my absolute favorite for my wide nails. If anyone is interested, I will be putting this up on my blog sale so it can go to a loving home. You can also purchase this directly from Ninja Polish by clicking here.

I’m on my way out to go watch Zero Dark Thirty with a friend–finally! I’ve been wanting to watch it for a long time so I’m excited to see it since I’ve heard so many good things about it.  Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

Nails Inc. Baker Street

How do you feel about blue nail polish? As a nail polish enthusiast, I think that most nail polish colors seem normal, but I’ve noticed that other people think it’s an off color for nails. I think that nail art has become so mainstream, that nothing is really that shocking anymore. Nails Inc. Baker Street is a polish that I had salivated over for a while but somehow hadn’t gotten around to purchasing. If you read my blog, you probably know that Nails Inc. cremes are just about my favorite polishes in the nail world. Before I got my hands on this polish, I received a lovely dupe by Kiko which I reviewed here. Kiko #336 really is a perfect exact dupe, but I could not resist getting both of them. Is it a sickness? You be the judge.

Nails Inc. Baker Street is a such a lovely and saturated cobalt blue. This polish definitely needs two coats because the first coat was a little thin. I actually found that the Kiko applied slightly better. I still love both of them!

I haven’t used my beloved Sticks ‘n Stones in a while so I dusted it off for this manicure.

This was my first purchase from Ninja Polish and I couldn’t have been happier. Since I would never get the Dramarella version of this polish, I’m so happy that this came out. You can purchase it here if you’re interested. Also, in case you are wondering how Sticks ‘n Stones compares to Lynderella Connect The Dots and even Dollish Polish Putting On The Ritzzz, check out this post over at My Lucid Bubble.

So there you have it, my polish peeps. How do you feel about bold colors such as Baker Street?

Ninja Polish: Nail-Venturous Humblebee

Today I have another installment of the reformed glitter hater chronicles. I’ve been on a serious glitter high for the last month or so despite all of my previous statements about hating glitter. I still have issues with it when it comes to removal, but otherwise I am mesmerized by the world of indie glitters. There are so many amazing glitters out there and I recently I did something I said I didn’t have the patience to do: buy some polishes on Etsy. Now, that statement came from all the complaints I would hear about having to stalk certain shops, but I had no problems whatsoever getting the glitters I wanted. That is probably going to change in the new future once people get a load of the polishes I have coming. I’ll have those later in the week so I’ll be able to post them soon.

I decided to use the second polish I recently purchased from Ninja Polish: Humblebee. It is such an amazing matte glitter in the same vein of Floam. I layered it over Wet N Wild Pin ‘Em Slater from their HTF collection, Saved By The Nail. I didn’t really need a base color because you can build up Humblebee to opacity, but you have to be sure to allow each coat to dry or else you risk dragging.




This is 3 coats of Pin ‘Em Slater. If you don’t want VNL, you must wear some white undies.


And here is the majestic Humblebee. Ahhh….so pretty!

Sorry for more food porn…don’t mean to make you hungry. I was so in the mood for these carne asada tacos so they hit the spot.

Today was not as hot but it was still pretty gross. I can’t wait for this weather to just calm the F down. How has your week been? Ready for hump day tomorrow?

Kiss My A’s With Sticks N’ Stones

When I ran into a nicely stocked Sation display, I knew I was in trouble. My usual Sation nail place is always out of the colors that I really want so I jumped all over this and grabbed way more than I should have:

Most of the polishes come from the Class Of Sation Collection which is freaking adorable. I love all the crazy names such as Jock Juggler, Class Flirt and Miss Emo Shun All.

Now I have another one to share with you: Kiss My A’s!

Sation calls this a vibrant watermelon shade but it looks a little more red/orange/coral to me. The more I look at it, the more I start to see the watermelon reference…although, if my watermelon was that color, I’d probably be afraid to eat it. lol Since this is a neon, it dries to a satin finish so you have to use a topcoat if you want a shiny finish. As usual, I used Seche Vite. If you don’t like VNL, you should use some white undies.

And for the final look, I layered a coat of Sticks N’ Stones over Kiss My A’s. I don’t know about you, but I lurve this! I am also super happy to get this version instead of giving any money to Miss Shady McShady (I think you know who I’m talking about!)

Today was a great nail mail day. I received my Cult Nails order that wasn’t scheduled for delivery until tomorrow so I was very happy.

Then I also received my latest Sephora order with my Illamasqua goodies and my VIB sample bag.

I accidentally bought 2 bottles of the yellow nails inc. so I’m putting one in my giveaway stash. 🙂

So what do you think about my combo of Kiss My A’s and Sticks N’ Stones? This polish came from my first Ninja Polish order and I am hooked. I also bought Humblebee which I will be trying soon. Currently I am waiting for Alexandrite to come back in stock…it literally sold out in hours. Ugh! I don’t know if the weather was more mild where you live, but it was actually bearable here today so I am definitely happy about that. Let’s hope that this becomes a cooling trend!

Thanks for stopping by!
