Today I will be showing how to paint Pupmkins on your nails! :-) All of the polishes used are available at Live Love Polish!
For today’s nail art, I decided to start off with a base of the beautiful piCture pOlish Lagoon. It is a beautiful glitter/scatter holo mix suspended in turquoise. I love the depth of the glitter in this polish, the hex glitters add such a nice touch! It’s like little bubbles in the water.
To compliment this polish, I decided to paint the Little Mermaid and her buddy Flounder on top. I used some rhinestones from the bornprettystore (#7300). The package came with a number of colors but for this look I only used the dark blue as little bubbles.
The formula for Beverly is pretty awesome. I have to say, in general, the formula in the more recent boxes have been a huge improvement in comparison to some of the boxes I received last year. This was fully opaque after 2 thin-medium coats and worked well as a base for my tape mani. The glitter I layered on top was from a sample I received in a purchase from Rainbow Honey in December, I haven’t seen it officially released on Rainbow Honey yet but I hope she does soon because it’s quite pretty.
Born Pretty Store has sent us some new items to review!
This time it’s the Vintage Lacy Plaid Floral Pattern Nail Art Stamp (item #14325). You may be a little confused, because on the product page it’s labeled QA46. But on the plate itself, it says QA49.
I’m actually still a noob when it comes to stamping, so this is still mediocre at best. Hopefully I’ll get a better hang of it. I think there’s more give when it’s a full nail stamp versus a more precise design like this one where you have to make sure it lines up with your nails properly. I’m sure there are some techniques I could try to get a better placement of the design.

China Glaze Float On
3 coats and a top coat
What a fun and bright pop of color. Yes summer is over, but it doesn’t mean your summer nails are over. Break out this neon pink to stand out from the dark polishes we might be seeing a lot of during autumn. The formula is a little heavy, so try and stay easy on the coats. Float On is from the 2014 Off Shore Collection.
