Just Imogen It…

18 Jan

Hello All!!! I hope your weekend and Monday were good, because who the hell likes Monday!? This past weekend was pretty awesome, I bought my wedding dress!!!! YOWZA! Mad props to my main girl Brit sticking it out with me through 3 dress shops! Third time is the charm right!!

This a bit of a throwback to when the Zoya Pixie Dust came out.  If you have followed my blog at all, you know I’m not the biggest fan of glitter.  Zoya polish and I have a love/hate relationship: I love the polish but it doesn’t like me.  I cannot get it to wear on me for a decent time; it’s a real pain in the balls.  When the Pixie Dust came out, I couldn’t resist their promotion, because seriously who?!  I bought Imogen, Vega and London. Below is Zoya Imogen:

Zoya Imogen WM

I believe this is three coats (+ top coat), which at that point it started to get goopy at the tips.  It is a jam packed glitter bomb, slap-yo- mama kind of nail polish!  I think the longest this wore on me was 3 days…..maybe.  If I used a base coat of black maybe it would stay longer??? I’ll try next time and report!

Leave a comment please………………..I get lonely 😦

I hope you enjoyed my ramblings once more and good night!

 

Polka Time!!

14 Oct

Hola pretty pumpkins!  What is going on???  Me? Just chillin like nothin you know.  Pretty uneventful times in my life, which is good, because that means less drama for me! Yay!  I spent some time with my friends Brit and Joe (what up playaz!) on Saturday, it was a good time.  I wasn’t going to go at first; but I went and glad I did, learned some pretty awesome, off-color jokes at that party, which I won’t tell you, so don’t ask!  I haven’t had much time to do my nails, they were naked for almost a week 😮  Shit was crazy, but I recently bought and received two new polishes from Zoya, Pinta and Demi.  I have used Pinta already and it is a GORGEOUS deep purple/navy creme, I am so glad they made it!

On to the more pressing matters, the last manicure I did with some nail art, were some dots! Surprise!  I used China Glaze Fifth Avenue as the base coat,  the white dots are Zoya Purity, and the dark purple dots might be China Glaze Urban Night.  I can’t remember what it was, but I use it a lot for nail art stuff so it’s a good chance.  Also, another exciting development is that my RIGHT hand makes a debut!!!!!  I usually photograph my left hand, because it’s just easier and plus, I liked the way my right hand turned out versus my left hand.  Here it is:

If I find out which purple I used, I’ll re-edit the pictures or update or some shit.  Anyway, there you have it! Sorry for not sticking to my previous comment of posting more, but it just slips away from me between work and what not.  Ok, you pretties, I’ll talk to you soon!

Auf Wiedersehen!

Seeing Spots

Hey everybody!!! How are you on this fine Monday night? Can I get a what, what Jay-Z style?! Hell yeah, you party animals!  Nothing much going on in my world– apartment searching is the only big thing really.

Anyway, you all know my love affair with stamping, and that I have been having trouble with the PUEEN plates.  I doth think I solved my problem!!!  I discovered if I swipe from the left corner diagonally, and then once from left to right of the image it comes out perfect!!!  So with my new courage and stamping courage I picked PUEEN 04 this time.

Stamping+dots+me= glorious nails!!!! MUA HA HA HA!!!!!  Sorry, guys…….back on topic!  So I saw these awesome dots and some of them were reversals of the other dots, so some were filled in and others weren’t.  I always do stamping with black so I decided to mix it up and add some color.  I painted my nails Fade Into Hue from China Glaze, which is a gorgeous periwinkle creme, and stamped this image using China Glaze Liquid Leather.  Then I took a dotting tool and filled in the filled in dots with Zoya Purity.  Below is the master piece:

ChG Fade Into Hue with Pueen 04 Stamping, Zoya PurityI love the way this came out!  The ring finger is a bit askew, but I always have to get like 2 or 3 fingers done before I get it evened out.  I thought it was a nice way of adding some color to the dark-colored palette.  This is actually the mani I am currently sporting until tomorrow when I change it.  I love this base color!!! China Glaze is DEFINITELY the best in making cremes, they are flawless and the color is amazing!!

Let me know what you guys think of this too and what other colors I should have used or use in the future!!!  Plus, don’t forget if you click the picture it will become bigger, like whoa!

I will see YOU later, have a good night everyone!!!

Now That’s a Fire!

Happy Tax Day everyone!!!!  I just filed my taxes and I get back a whopping $3 from Federal!!!! I can finally buy that Chanel bag now!  What a joke, I hate taxes and paying out the ass every paycheck…..damn you government!!!! I think Ron Swanson would be proud lol.

Well, I do believe that my first post to this blog last year was on April 1st, so my blog-irthday was a few days ago and I was too busy to even notice!!!! How sad!!!!!  I don’t really do anything for my birthday, so I guess it’s only fitting that I didn’t do anything for this one too.  I was thinking about doing a giveaway with some of the polishes I haven’t used and probably won’t use, but then that just seems like the cheap skate way to go, or “economical” as I like to say.  Anyway, thanks for sticking around everyone that follows/read this blog.  I really do appreciate it, I didn’t really expect much when I started it and the fact that you guys actually enjoy my random ramblings and potty mouth, is quite refreshing!  LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!! (Please don’t stalk me :-x)

I was smitten with Zoya’s Blaze when it first debuted and I recently obtained it during one of their sales and it’s gorgeous.  I guess one could say it is a scattered holo, I don’t really care what it is called, shit is amazing ok?  Get it, wear it and love it you fools!Zoya BlazeI messed with the highlights and what not so you could see the holo in the polish.  This is a really gorgeous color and I’m not one for reds as you know, but it was more of a deep red-ish burgundy color on me.  Beautiful.

Enjoy, as always!!!!!!  Thanks again for following my blog and looking at it! I really do appreciate it, thanks everyone!!!!!!

xoxoxo

Squigs on my Fings?

5 Oct

Hey party people! What’s crackin?? Let’s turn this b**ch up!!!!  So I just woke up like half an hour ago and I felt like I should type up a post to give you guys something new to ogle.  Shall ogling ensue, it will be stupendous. I am also currently watching the new NCIS episode, [SPOILER ALERT] the one where they have to get psych evaluations after the bombing, poor Abby!

Anyway, I have an old mani for you–I did this one a few weeks ago, like the end of September, and I wasn’t too pleased with it, but it’s not fair to only show you the ones that I like right? There is just something I don’t like.

Base Color: Zoya Petra

Stamping Color: Finger Paints Papier Mache

Stamp: BM 314

Even looking at it now, it just seems meh to me ya know!?!  Let me know what you guys think!  Drop me a line, spark up a convo.  I really do and would like to hear from you guys.

Wiedersehen!!!!!!

Be still my heart

5 Aug

Hey people!!!! What up??  So today we had that awful storm hit us here in WNY, so I’m writing this post instead of walking to Starbucks in a god dam monsoon. Lucky you right? 😉  Anyway, I was debating for a while to even post this mani, because I really don’t like it.  So this base color is suppose to be a dusty sage, so why does mine look so blue? I’m confused.  I do like this color though, maybe the blue stamping is making it look extra blue.  I don’t know.  Maybe I should try it with different colors or something, so here it is!!!!!

Base Color: Zoya Bevin

Stamping Color: China Glaze First Mate

Stamp: BM 317

Maybe I’m just being too critical, but this just looks meh to me.  Drop me a comment if you think otherwise or if you share the same opinion as me!  Now I’m off to watch Criminal Minds and make more coffee?? You can never have too much coffee! Bye bitchez!!!

Like Butta!!

16 Apr

Hey party people!!! I FINALLY found my camera cable!!!  You can now get semi-professional looking pictures other than the ones I take with my Evo.  SOOOOO, I went to Ulta this weekend and got a few things.  I know my cuticles are busted so I got the Sally Hansen Cuticle Eraser and Balm and GOD DAMN that shit is amazing!!!!!  I used it once and BOOM look at those cuticles!!! They look a bit dry because of the acetone to clean up the polish.  Anyway,  I picked up Zoya Bevin , OPI Lincoln Park After Dark and my FIRST ever Butter London in La Moss–which I brought to you today!!!!

 

 

 

No wonder people are crazy over Butter London– I was a little apprehensive to buy it because it’s $18/bottle, but JESUS is it worth it!  It is so easy to apply, self-levening, rich color, excellent coverage, just A++++++++++  I will most definitely be buying some more!!!  LOVED it

Anyway, I’m off to watch Bethenny Ever After and to clean up my nail painting station, because damn…….yeah.  Ok, people peace out mother f***ers!!!!!

****I bought these polishes and the opinions stated above are mine solely****
