NOTW - Gold Finger




Hope you guys are feeling well. Sorry for the lack of posts
but I've not been well this past week. I have just not had any energy
to be creativ. Lucky me and you that I have a few things in my arkive.

This manicure I am about to show you I did maybe 2, 3 weeks ago. And it's
one of those manicures you need full lights for or sunshine to really see the beauty.



I started off by applying China Glaze - Medallion to the nail tips.
Then I wanted to create a see of stars faling down from the tips.
So I brushed down a bit of the Medallion and then added
ELF - Golden Goddess to the entire nail.



And before I could start stamping I had to apply
a layer of Seche Vite to smooth things out.


I stamped with Purple Konad Special Polish using Konad Image Plate M64.
To top it off I placed a Purple Rhinestone at the center of the print.
All it needed not was a layer of Top Coat. Really simple Manicure to do.

I really liked this manicure. The purple went well with the gold.
What do you think?

ELF Elements Haul

Hello Dolls!
How are you all doing?
Sorry I have not been posting.
But you know... busy, busy, busy.


Now I finally get to post this ELF Haul.
A while back ELF had -50% off on everything. I took the chance
to order Element Custom Compacts. You by a Custom Compact
and then you fill it with what you want. ELF has eyeshadows,
blushes and lip colors to the compacts. You can mix and match
how you want. The compact has a big mirror on the lid, convinient
if you are on the run. The pans have a magnet on the back so they
stick to the metal plate on the bottom of the compact, so it easy to
pop them in and take them out. The pan is just over 1 inch = 2,7cm
in case you need to know if they fit your palette.

Bronzed and Pink Ice
Peaches and Guava

 ---
Coy and Mocha
Earth Rose and Dusk

---
Glow and Sage
Nude Blush (even tho it is a lip color) and Ivory

 ---
Shy and Perwinkle
Sugar Plum and Wisteria

 ---
Flushed and Crimson
Icing and Truly Pink


 I bought these mainly for travel. But I have been using
a couple of the blushes and some eyeshadows.
Seems to be OK pigmentation, so I am happy
because I like them. And I bought most of them on sale.

Have you tried anything of the ELF Elements?

Guest post: Sigma F80 review

 Today I have a review written by the Winner of my Sigma F80 Giveaway.
This is what she thinks about the brush.

It's been a while since i received the brush but her goes my review with photo:


I'm amazed with this brush! I can't complement it enough.
It solves any bad foundation problem, you don't get your fingers dirty and it dries very fast also.
Since i've had it, i wash it with antibacterial soap and it stays clean and straight.
This is the Holy Grail of brushes and i love it along with my Estée Lauder favorite! 
Thanks you so much.

Swatches of China Glaze - Cherish





Cherish is a pale silvery green. Lovely color. But I felt
that I wanted to add something else on my nails.


I decided to sponge my nail tips with China Glaze - Outta Bounds.
Feeling that was not enough I stamped an Image from Konad
Image Plate M56 across the nails with white Konad Special Polish.



At this point I thought I might as well go all the way. So I
added lime-green loose crafts glitter and China Glaze - Nova
to the corner of my nails. Then I felt that the bows was missing
something and added rhinestones to them in the middle.





And a funny thing happened after I applied Top Coat... the white
special polish I used for the prints turned lime green. The mani was
looking better and better. (If you like glitter and bling that is).
I just wished I had put light green rhinestones instead of clear.




Products used:

Konad Image Plate M56
China Glaze - Cherish
China Glaze - Outta Bounds (Sponged Tip)
Konad Special White
Lime Crafts Glitter and
China Glaze - Nova in the corner
Top Coat
Rhinestones





Too bad you can not see the nails in real life.
They look really beautiful (if I may say so myself).
It is hard to capture glitter so you can't see the
light changes in the nails.
