The Beauty Buffs - Trend: Pastels

Hey guys!
Today I have something super fun and special to share with you!
My dear friend Nory of Fierce Makeup & Nails started a new group up called The Beauty Buffs! Every couple of weeks the ladies of the BB will be posting different things based on a theme. The best part is that it's a really diverse group of bloggers, there are beauty bloggers, nail bloggers, fashion bloggers, lifestyle bloggers...So it's going to be really fun to see the diversity of everyones posts for each theme!  I was really thrilled Nory included me, I have always wanted to keep this a strictly nails blog and I have through time turned down countless offers to do "other" types of posts, giveaways and reviews so I COULD keep it nails only. I like that with this group I have the option to spread my wings A LITTLE but still keep the focus on nails!

Powder Perfect - The Abandoned Mansion Collection - Complete Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys!
Today I've got a whopper of a post for you...I was recently approached by the lovely Jacinta of Powder Perfect asking if I would like to review her newest collection.

Well...girls and boys, let me tell you - if you haven't heard of this polish line, I think it's safe to say it's about to blow up! Click through to see what I'm talking about!

Put Your Dupes Up! Spring Pastel Glitter Edition

Hey guys!
Today I've got one of your favorites - a comparison post!
While perusing through the beauty section at WalMart a couple of weeks ago, I came across the new polishes Hard Candy had quietly dropped into their core display and one popped out at me, not because I needed to HAVE it, but because it looked exactly like something else I had - I do it for science. I bought it JUST to show you it's twin sister.

OPI - Spotlight on Glitter Swatches & Review

Hey friends!!
Guess what?!
I snapped a nail off and I'm back to uber-shorties/no more pointies!
Squares cause me troubles but with the break I had no choice, I kind of like the change though, I guess I missed my square nails! We'll see how long they stick around (and I do still have mani's with the pointies to come, so don't get confused!)  Anyway - today I have a nice little 6 piece collection from OPI to show you - Spotlight on Glitter! Ready to check it out? Come on then!

Lynnderella SuperSpam

Hey guys!
Working through my huge pile of review products to get up to show you this week - in the meantime I have some spam to share.
My untried pile of Lynnderella's was getting a little sad to look at, pair that with the fact that my friend Ashley has hers sent to me to ship to her overseas and she let me play with hers, and that's how you end up with a Lynnderella Spam Post!

The Neverending Pile is Coming!

Hey loves!
Well...best intentions aside...I have been barely around, haven't I?
The weekend got a bit overwhelming and I am still struggling with sinus headaches - so things I had hoped to get to haven't been started and things I wanted to get to are even further behind!
I'm hoping to be back to swatching and painting by tomorrow or the next day - but in the meantime I wanted to share with you another challenge in the works through my facebook group, The Glittah Pirates:


Basically this is an Untrieds Challenge - it will start up in April and most of the useful information is there on the graphic - if you want to participate, feel free. There will be extra info coming soon, like Inlinkz codes, if you want to get those, request to join the FB group and we'll get you settled up for the challenge!
