Twinsie Tuesday: One-Stroke Flowers

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is one stroke flowers. To be honest, I haven't done any one stroke designs in a very long time. I think the last time I did one was for a previous Twinsie Tuesday theme too. Let's see how this one turned out then.

Purple and White One Stroke Inspired Floral Nail Art

I used MisQs SP002 on all the nails. I created the one stroke flowers using a flat nail art brush with purple and white acrylic paint. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.

I didn't have much time to practice the one stroke technique so this was very free handed. It turned out a bit messier than I was going for but I don't think they turned out too bad. They kind of have an artsy vibe to it too. What do you think?

Sephora by OPI Bright as a Feather

Monday, March 27, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I'm kind of in a rush today so let's just see what blue polish I have to share.

Sephora by OPI Bright as a Feather is a bright sky blue packed with silver and turquoise shimmers. When I first saw this polish, I didn't expect to like it that much on the nails but I was pleasantly surprised by it. I think the silver and turquoise shimmers really helps to make the color super shiny and reflective when applied on the nails. It almost reminds me of the water in a swimming pool too. The formula was a little sheer but application was pretty good on it. This is three coats.

Its always great to like a polish you didn't expect to like just from looking at it in the bottle. What do you think?

Aveniro Foot Scraper and Duo Glass Nail Files Review

Thursday, March 23, 2017

Hi everyone! I have a review today to share on some new glass nail files that Aveniro has recently come out with. I have reviewed Aveniro in the past and really like their products so I was excited to work with them again. The new products they sent me are the foot scraper and a medium and small duo files.

Aveniro Foot Scraper and Duo Glass Nail Files Review

My Review
Like the previous time I worked with Aveniro, their communication and shipping was very quick. I received this package around two weeks after it was confirmed to have been shipped out to me. Everything was packaged in a nice cardboard box with bubble wrap and was sent in a small mailer envelope.

Aveniro Foot Scraper and Duo Glass Nail Files Review

So regarding the three new products, I was very pleased with them all. I don't really have much issues with my feet so the foot scraper wasn't really getting much use from me but I did give it to my mom to use and she loves it. The foot scraper has two sides: the rougher side works to remove dirt and old skin and the more smoother side works to give a final clean skin finish. The size of the foot scraper is 55x110mm and unique shape to it ensures a smooth and comfortable use.

Aveniro Foot Scraper and Duo Glass Nail Files Review

For the medium and small duo glass nail files, they worked really well for me. Like the foot scarper, these glass nail files also has two sides with it. The rougher side is highly abrasive yet gentle on the nails to enable fast and easier shaping of the nails. The smoother side works as a final filing and helps to correct any imperfections made with the rougher side. They file my nails really well and I like that they don't wear down as you continue to use them like regular nail files do. Both of the glass nail files are very travel friendly and easy to carry around with you. I also love the pretty colored gradient on top of both of the glass files. The one on the medium glass nail file in particular makes me want to create a manicure with that colored gradient design too.

Final Thoughts
Overall, if your looking for affordable and great quality glass nail files or a new foot scraper, I definitely recommend you to check out the ones from Aveniro. Their customer service was friendly and their shipping time was pretty fast. Another thing I like is that their glass nail files comes with its own cover which is handy to protect them when your traveling with them.

*Avenrio sent these products for review purposes. My opinion is 100% honest.*

Nicole by OPI Diva Into The Pool

Monday, March 20, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I'm a little behind on some posts that I have planned but I'm trying to get a little caught up this week. Luckily, I still have enough posts to last me for a couple of weeks. Let's see what polish I'm swatching then.

Nicole by OPI Diva Into The Pool is a shimmery blue aqua foil that's packed with small silver glitters. Even though the color is pretty, the formula was really lacking. I found the formula thin in opacity when I applied the first coat so I knew I would have to apply at least three coats to get decent coverage. Since the formula was on the thin side, application was a little hard. I felt like as I applied more coats on, it was leaving the color a little patchy so I had to be extra careful with my application. I don't wear this color a lot but I do like how sparkly it is on the nails. This is three coats.

Even though I had to apply quite a few coats, I'm glad that the color didn't bubble on my nails. If the formula was better, I think I would have liked the polish a little more. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Shades of Green

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is shades of green. Since St. Patrick's Day is coming up later this week, I thought it was appropriate to try to create a manicure for the day. I don't really celebrate days like this but I thought it would be fun to do so for the theme so here's what I came up with.

St. Patrick's Day Inspired Stripes and Clover Nail Art

I used Essie Mint Candy Apple on the ring and middle nail. Next, I used China Glaze Starboard and striping tape to create stripes. Then I took a dotting tool and American Apparel Crescent Heights to create a clover on the corner of each striped nail. For the rest of the nails, I used Orly Ancient Jade. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.

I thought these turned out pretty cute. My free handed clovers aren't the greatest but I tried my best at it. Its also been a long time since I've done stripes too. What do you think?
