Poshinality - Tomboy

Poshinality offered me this polish to review for you guys. I chose the shade Tomboy. 
 Found HERE for $9.50

"Tomboy isn't the typical blue. It's a beautiful blue jean hue with a smooth creme finish, perfect for the laid back and relaxed individual."

The closest polish I have in my collection is Zoya Skylar, so I featured 3 coats of that on my ring finger as an accent. Tomboy is on all the other nails. The polish went on smoothly, was nearly even with just one coat but I applied a second just for safe measure. It dries to an incredibly shiny finish, but I did also apply a topcoat out of habit.

Gold Half Moons

First I applied my Rejuvacote basecoat and allowed it to fully dry. 
Then I used the round hole reinforcement stickers, that I had cut in half, to mask off the half moon area. 
I then painted two coats of L'Oreal The Palace Life and peeled off the half moon stickers before it was fully dried.
I used a small paintbrush to fill in the half moons with Zoya Ziv.
The topped it off with Lacquistry Amazeballz for some extra metallic shine.
Finished off the whole manicure with Seche Vite top coat.

Nailasaurus & Cath Kidston

Inspired by the Nailasaurus' look HERE from a Cath Kidston print. Ever since she posted this look I knew I wanted to recreate it. I like the delicate look of her flowers over my more cartoonish ones, but they can't all be winners. I still like the delicate feminine look it has.

Polishes used: 
Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud
Sinful Colors Exotic Green
Zoya Areej, Keiko, & Kristen

Neon Explosions

I found a really cool looking pedicure with this general idea on Pinterest so I altered it to make it a manicure. I also added a neon pink stud. The neon polishes I used are from the Wet N Wild Saved by the Bell Collection. Nerd Alert: Screech & Pom Pom Kelly. The pink polish photographs orange on my index nail, but it's the same pink as my thumb.

 I made sure to apply white polish first anywhere that I wanted to put the neons. That way they really pop and show their true vibrancy.

Navy & Coral

I've been on a bit of a coral kick lately. I can't seem to shake it since last spring.

These nails were loosely inspired by this pedicure from Pinterest. I didn't care for the washed out nude colors, so I swapped it out with a brighter coral/peach.

I used OPI... Eurso Euro & theBalm Coral Reef-ined. Masked off the areas with striping tape and applied black studs as seen.

Born Pretty Fail

Hey guys, these last few items I've gotten from Born Pretty store didn't really work for me. 
Let me show you why:

First up was this LARGE water decal. 
It comes on a sheet with several other giant water decals for $1.99 (HERE).
I chose to cut it up into smaller sections before dipping because I thought that would be more manageable than trying to cut it once it was wet.
 The flaws.... it was painstakingly slow! And I usually don't mind being patient, but this was brutal because it took forever and then I felt it looked messy. The decal is thick so my nippers just ate away at it. Maybe if I had some of those tiny cuticle scissors it might have worked better. I then filed away the extra from the tips just like you would for a sticker nail decal. That worked fairly easy.

 You can see it's already begun lifting around the edges. This manicure lasted just for the duration of these photos. Afterwards the entire thing just slid off like it didn't dry or adhere properly.

Next up is this nail art foil. Found HERE for $2.39. (Design #1)
My foil doesn't have a crisp image like the one pictured on the site. The butterflies, I guess that's what they are supposed to be, are chopped up and hard to decipher. I'm just not feeling it.

I didn't care for either of these items, but I guess they can't all be winners.
