Fail Try

So I'm going to try to type this really quick cause my daughter is standing in her crib yelling at me, she keeps standing but cant get back down but she keeps standing. being a little boldy. <3

I tried to do some layers to my nails.
White with a glitter over it.

I don't know if I just got a dud or something but it was so bad I don't want to show my pictures! Lol.
I used my usual Quick Dry Base Coat by Revlon, no issues.
Then used Snow Me White by Sinful Colors.
Even when I wiped alot off of the brush it still went on THICK, like omg where is all this coming from thickkkk. To the point I couldnt even clean up the outterlines of my skin. 
Even so when it dried I put one, two coats of Ruby Rhinestones by Maybellines Color Show, a limited edition color. Its a glitter polish thats good on its own, looked amazing with 2 coats. Red semi hex-ish glitters, smaller red glitters along with even smaller black glitters, I LOOOOOOVED it.

The reason of no pictures is like i said, my Snow Me White was so thick no matter what I did.
Hoping I just had a dud so who ever else got it didn't get one like this.

Above The Curve; Fallen Angel & Diablos!

My swatches took forever to take with my cell phone, wish I had a digital camera but I can't afford one.
I got these two Minis of Fallen Angel and Diablos during one of their friday giveaway things.<3

This is Fallen Angel, see the holo rainbow goodness!? Love it!
Its a blueish silver with holo effect.<3
The shadows are coming, shhh.

Better view of my four nails, see the holo goodness?
My first indie polish, it was easy to apply and only took 2 to 3 coats each nail!<3

Some what close up, tried to really catch the holo.
Ignore the mess around my nails, couldnt clean; was trying to do all this before my daughter wakes from her cat nap!

Here is my thumb, with the holo it looks like a house is on fire! 

Here is Diablos!
It looks kind of brown, but its dark purple, ca't really see the holo look but you can tell its really sparkly, which I looooove!<3

Close up of the sparkles!
As with Fallen Angel, applying was easy, took 2 to 3 coats each nail.<3

I looooooooooooooooved these! I hope one day I'd be able to purchase full bottles of their stuff.<3
I'm still so happy!

Nail Junkie: 500 FAN GIVEAWAY at NAIL JUNKIE!!!!

Nail Junkie: 500 FAN GIVEAWAY at NAIL JUNKIE!!!!: I recently reached 500 fans on facebook, and would like to thank everyone with the chance to win a cute goodie package.  Let me run you t...

Pure Ice My City!

I just entered my FIRST contest, I attempted a little nail art for #PUREICEMYCITY contest. I seen so many amazing entries, I don't even know why I even entered! It doesn't hurt to try, you never know, right? HOPES for me cause I never win anything like this! My first time entering a nail art contest!

My Entry;

Major suckage compared to others. The glitters didnt place right for the blue. My middle finger? thats supposed to be dirt with coal.

Since it's probably small, here was my entry on their page, besides the picture.

Contest Entry Name: Amanda Lawson/Red Rose Vine Lacquer.♥
City: Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania
Why You Love It: Always lit up, the Square is always lit up with lights that can be seen from a far, hence blue glitter. We get snow but sometimes I just love seeing no snow in the winter times, hance the green. Middle finger is for the dirt and mining areas that used to be with coal. Go, PA, go!
Bad quality, hope that doesnt effect my entry, first time attempting nail art! x3 Used all Pure Ice nail polishes, not the black which was a nail art polish by l.a. colors.

Wish me luck!

Goody QuikStyle

 I received this product complimentary to test through Influenster’s VoxBox program.

These hair brushes by Goody are amazing, click here for others reviews. Its a big ish hair brush with sponge like brissles along with it. It helps take 30% of water when you hair is wet, my hair seems more smooth and more manageable when I use this after my showers! Just brush and wal~la! Its amazing to use, and easy to get tangles out!

Go buy one, like right now!
SPOTTED : $12.99 at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, Kroger, Duane Reade

The GOODY® QUIKSTYLE™ Paddle brush works like a towel and brush in one. The super absorbent (and antimicrobial) microfiber removes 30% of water from wet hair to help speed your drying time! You can effortlessly detangle right out of the shower and continue using it while you blow dry!


Kiss Nail Dress

Disclaimer, I received this product complimentary from Influenster.

I love these, they have sooo many selections of different looks! Kiss Nail Dresses are easy to apply, no dry time ofcourse!

Ofcourse I picked a size too big for my thumb but tis cute and easy to apply!

I had weird looking shaped nails when I tried them, I also had glitter polish on before hand so you can still see some cotton ball left over on one nail. I need a nail file bad, lol.

Over all, I loved it but if you get ANY part on the skin it WILL peel. I lost one while giving my daughter a bath, then lost one while dressing her. To see others reviews please go here.

Introducing Kiss® Nail Dress™, ultimate nail fashion for tips and toes! Just peel, apply, and shape for a manicure that lasts up to a week. On in minutes, off in seconds without remover. Nail Dress is available in 21 different styles, many of them featuring 3-dimensional jeweled designs. Check out Peplum, a deep silver with multi-colored gems for a pop of color, or Babydoll, for a golden and glamorous jeweled look. Skip the topcoat, Nail Dress has it built in.

With 28 strips in each package, you can cut up your extras to create designs that can be used on top of polished or artificial nails. Add some pizzazz and use with imPRESS® Press-On Manicure™ by Broadway Nails for the ultimate DIY manicure. Nail Dress doesn’t dry out the way other polish strips can, so you can save them to use on your next mani. A nail design booklet is included in each package, just in case you need a little inspiration.

And don’t forget about your feet! Nail Dress looks awesome on toes, too – just use the square side of the sticker for a perfect fit.

Kiss Nail Dress’ suggested retail is $6.99 and is available in all major drug chains and mass retailers like WalMart, CVS and Walgreens. Visit KissNailDress.com to learn more!


NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine

received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster.

So apart of my task is to do a blog review. I received NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City in my Holiday VoxBox. And I gotta say, I absolutely love it! And I'm the type to really not like nude colour lip products. Maybe, I even starting to like them now!

I applied it to my bottom lip only.

It went on smooth, and its not sticky at all! It gave my lips a tint of colour, and a shine as well! I did my upper lip after the photo, I love wearing it for the day! C:
Straight from the city that never sleeps, NYC New York Color offers products with uptown style at down-to-earth prices, from $.99 - $4.99. The energy, style, and color of New York City shines through the wide range of shades, textures and innovative products. NYC always delivers the most on-trend products & shades hot off the runway!

Amazing products if you ask me! What do you think?

I need to post more!

I really do. I need to post more, but it won't be much, seeing as I don't have any followers. I don't even think I have that GFC adder thing on my page. Unless you can't view your own. Hmm.

I got Juleps Winter Collection thanks to Fashion Bug In Florida! Along with it came with the tote too.<3 I plan on swatching Sharon & Melissa tomorrow. Because I can, lol.

I also got today a cute little flower hair pin for my daughter when she has more hair.<3 Yay!

Short post but no time today, lol. Till next time, I hope to have better posts. (:
