Alter Ego Bath and Body: Be a Pirate Collection and Lip Balm - Swatches and Review

Hi everyone! I have a fun collection to show you tonight! Cynthia from Alter Ego is one of the sweetest and most hard-working people you will ever meet. I have seen her work tirelessly on her brand over the years and she puts every bit of herself into it. I've been lucky enough to meet up with her in person a few times and her passion for her brand shows just as much in person as it does online. She has made several improvements to her polishes over the years but her current formula, which was just released a few months ago, is by far the best yet! She has also recently started creating all sorts of body care items including soaps, spray scents for men, egoSCENTrics (which are like solid lotions and I love using these on my cuticles), dog shampoo (I have been using this on both of my dogs and I really like it) and lip balm - which I have to share with you today!

I will also have a coupon code for 20% off your order at the end of this post, so stay tuned!

HPB Presents: Dusty - Chevrons and Dots

Press Sample 

Hello and Happy Friday, everyone! I am joining in a fun nail art theme with a group of fellow bloggers on Facebook - Hobby Polish Bloggers. I have good intentions of joining in the fun every month but, well, I'm a bad planner. But I made it this month and I'm glad! This month's theme is "dusty" and I happen to love dusty colors. I also have a collection that I recently received to review from Glisten and Glow that is perfect for this challenge. I will have full swatches and my review for you soon, but for now I am going to show you how well they work together!

The Digit-al Dozen Does Gradients +: Twisty Triangles

Hello, everyone! Happy Friday! I am so sad I wasn't able to post all 5 days this week, but I have a mani I am really happy with to close out the week! I love my gradient base and I did some fun freehand work on top - I haven't gotten to do freehand nail art in awhile and I have missed it so much!

The Digit-al Dozen Does Gradient +: Pink and Brown Gradient Plus Whimsical Reciprocal Stamping

Happy Tuesday, everyone! For Day 2 of Digit-al Dozen week I am still working on my stamping skills! I do my mom's nails every week (usually) and she loves when I stamp on her, so I have really been trying to get better at it. I love reciprocal gradients so I decided to create one today with a stamping image and used two of the recently released Caio, Gelato! polishes from Paint Box Polish. (If you missed my review on those, you can check it out here.)

The Digit-al Dozen Does Gradient +: Radial Gradient Plus Stamping

Hi everyone! It is Digit-al Dozen Week again and this month our theme is Gradient +. I am excited for this week because I love doing gradients and think they are perfect when combined with other techniques.  Today I decided to push myself and do a radial gradient. Ive done them before but they are hard so I am trying to practice and get better.
