Halloween Stamping! ♥

Nothing to Disclose

BOO! Happy Halloween! I have a quick mani to show you this morning. I did this mani in about 30 minutes last night before my nephew's Halloween Orchestra Concert and I am still wearing it today. (Although I do have another mani I'd like to try so if I get a chance I will have another to show you later.)

Dark Shadows Inspired Mani ♥

 Nothing to Disclose

Happy Day-Before-Halloween! I haven't had much time for Halloween Nail Art this year which makes me sad because I love doing spooky manis. So I figured if I only had time left to do a select few I should choose the ones I was really excited about. And I was very excited for this one!

I started watching the original Dark Shadows series (don't even get me started on the movie re-make! LOL) a couple of years ago with my mom (she had watched it as a kid) and I was hooked almost instantly. The story lines are good, the acting is amazing (especially considering they filmed a brand new episode live every day) and I really enjoyed  the whole "gothic, spooky" feel of the show.

Guest Post from Sheila at Pointless Cafe featuring Above the Curve Thrilling ♥

Between life being hectic and not feeling well I have fallen a bit behind in my posts so my dear friend Sheila stepped in to help me out tonight! If you don't already follow Sheila, make sure you head on over to Pointless Cafe and check her out! Thank you so much, Sheila!

*This product is Cruelty Free 

Hi everyone!!! I'm so excited to be doing a guest post for Ashley and you guys! I have a really pretty one for you and it's available now and ON SALE! Love it when that happens!

Above the Curve

Thrilling is a bluer version of Husbands Just Don't Understand and it's a gorgeous blue-leaning teal with loads of shimmer and a bit of scattered holo. Formula and application were flawless! It can be a one-coater even, but I've used two coats and no top coat for the photos.


Wow, this one really got me. It's just really pretty and sparkly and it's saturated enough that it even looks good on my bleached flour skin! What do you think?

It's ON SALE right now at Above the Curve's site for $7.00 for a full-sized bottle!

Above the Curve polishes are available on their Big Cartel shop here and their Etsy shop here. You can also follow them on Facebook here to stay up-to-date on availability, new collections, promos, etc. The BEST part? $1 of every bottle sold goes to Shriner's Hospital for Children! Other polishes in full-sized bottles retail for $9.00. 

When you have time, come on over and visit me at Pointless Cafe!

Thanks for having me Ash!



Well that one is going directly on my wish list! Thanks again for the gorgeous pics and great post, Sheila! ♥

Milani Limited Edition Fall Textured Creams Collection - Swatches and Review ♥

Press Sample

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I have a brand new, limited edition collection for Fall 2013 - the Milani Fall Textured Creams Collection. 

This collection is made up of 6 textured polishes in colors that are just perfect for fall. All had the same great formula. I used 2 coats of each for full opacity (though many were nearly one-coaters), making sure the first coat was dry before adding the second.

Autumn Theme Week Day 3 - Autumn Branches and Leaves ♥

Nothing to Disclose

I'm late getting this posted but better late than never, right? I received my Above the Curve order in the mail last night and could not wait to get Akiko on my fingers! It does not disappoint! Such a perfect color for Autumn, but also great for year 'round wear as well. 

Akiko is an autumnal copper holographic polish that sometimes looks deep gold, depending on the light. It had a formula as perfect as a crisp autumn day. No issues at all. I thought it would make the perfect base for today's nail art and added some simple branches and leaved on top of it.

Autumn Theme Week Day 2 - Autumn Flowers ♥

Nothing to Disclose

Autumn Week continues with an Autumn Flowers Theme! I did a skittelette featuring and flower on 2 of my fingers. I honestly don't know if there is a flower that looks like this (since I live in the desert and we don't really have "Autumn"), my guess is no since I couldn't find any when googling. But I found several that are close enough!
