Glitter Kitties

I snagged up a bunch of new polishes in March with a mini haul from Live Love Polish, a few from Target's own brand Defy & Inspired, my Julep Maven box, and some pretties from Sephora.

The Live Love Polish haul came from a gift card I got for my birthday and that gift card also come with some adorable cat-themed nail vinyls. So, I paired those vinyls up with some of my new polishes and got a cute, glittery kitty design.

Born Pretty Review

Who's ready for a Born Pretty Store product review? Spoiler alert, it's a good one!

*I received this product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine. 

What do you think of when you hear the term nail foils? I can't be the only one who hears the term and thinks of shiny holo gorgeousness, right? I have a pretty large nail foil collection and they're all holo. I was pretty excited to see some fun patterned nail foils at the Born Pretty Store that weren't holo. Frankly, I was curious to see if they would work the same as normal nail foils.

Faux water marble

I was perusing a CVS the other day and came across a display for Pop-arazzi nail polish. I've eyeballed their polishes every time I've been in CVS but I never grabbed any up. But this time, I decided to grab a couple. 

One of these is a gorgeous rose gold color and I had decided that I wanted to water marble with it. But it wouldn't work. So I thought I would fake a water marble with some drag marbling.

Mardi Gras Nails

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras. Also known as Shrove Tuesday. Also known as Fat Tuesday. And here in Michigan, also known as Paczki Day! I lived in Tennessee for 10-ish years and had never heard of paczki before; there apparently isn't as large a Polish (as in Poland, not nail polish) population down there. But paczki are a huge deal here this time of year. If you aren't familiar, paczki are Polish donuts that are filled with fruit or custard and stuff. I am not a fan but I hear that that is because I am a crazy person. Eh. What are you going to do. 

Today's nail art is inspired by Mardi Gras in the New Orleans celebrations type of way.

Bright Colorful Stripes

The nail art fable: 

I was in the mood for some stripey nails to match the nice weather we've been having lately. I grabbed some nail vinyls and got to work. One nail went perfectly, and then things started going downhill. I was determined to make it work so I kept going. Things just got worse and worse and I started to get impatient. I really loved the color combination so I didn't give up. In the end, I patched things up and came out with something somewhat decent to share.

The moral of the story: Sometimes it's easier to start over, but I'm lazy.
