Hello there! :) I am so excited to be sharing with you guys some Nail Art! That hasn't happened in awhile! :P I apologize it's been so long since I have shared any nail art, I have been going through a mani block (what I call writers block for nail artists LOL)...but I'm slowly coming out of it! Wahoo!

 I am really excited about this nail art because it's advanced stamping...which is a technique that I love! But have had a hard time with myself. After watching countless YouTube videos and a few attempted fails, I finally found a way that works for me, thanks to Nailstamp4fun! Her way of doing advanced stamping is pretty easy and not as time consuming as some of the other ways. I highly suggest her videos :) And I think I'll post my own video of this mani on my YouTube account as soon as I can (Here is the link to my YouTube: Playful Polishes).

The polishes I used for this design were Sinful Colors, Easy Going (light pink base), Black on Black, Exotic Green, Liquid Sky Lacquer, Coral You Later and Zoya, Miranda. The stamp is Winstonia 118.

Once I had stamped on the design it didn't quite feel done...I felt like it was missing something, so I added some black dots to make the design pop and complete the look!

What do you think!? Do you like it better with or without the dots? :) I prefer the dots. They just pull the mani together.

Thanks for taking a moment to check out this short post :) I hope that I can film a video for you guys on how to do this style of advanced stamping, but in the meantime check out Nailstamp4fun's videos :) She has awesome manis!

Good afternoon lovelies! :) I hope you are all having a great week! Today I have some beautiful neon jellies to share with you from Doctor Lacquer's new Kaleidoscope Collection :) 

I was so excited to receive these from Doctor Lacquer right before the wedding, and it's been killing me to have had to wait this long to swatch them (wedding, honeymoon, etc. :P) but I finally did it and I love them! 

Just before I get to the swatches I want to say that these polishes should be swatched over a white base color just to help with opacity and to make them pop! But, unfortunately my white polish wasn't behaving for me so I just applied a few coats of each color to my liking.

**These polishes were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**

3 coats

Up first is Lutein. This is a really fun, and extremely bright neon yellow :) I'm sure with the white coat underneath, all of these polishes would only need 1-2 coats, but this is 3 with no white coat. I wish my white polish would have behaved because the swatches could be brighter and pop more, but either way in my opinion these polishes just speak for themselves :P

3 coats

Carotene is more of a Sunflower yellow in person, even though these photos show it as more of a light orange. I like both looks of it :)

2 coats

This beautiful color is Lycopene, which is actually more orange than red, but again the photo kind of alters the color...either way it's still gorgeous :) 

2 coats

At first glance this one, Annato and the next one, Hemoglobin look like they could be dupes, but Annato is more of a bright candy colored pink, whereas Hemoglobin is more of a pink with purple undertones.

2 coats

Can you see the difference? Hemoglobin is so pretty! They both are! I really like that even though these are jellies which are usually not very opaque, the 2 pinks and the orange were opaque in 2 coats without a white base coat.

2-3 coats

Betalain is stunning! I love the way this color looks against my skin tone.

3 coats

Blue! You all know I love blue! :) Phycocyanin reminds me of cotton candy blue for some reason...or just blue candies in general. LOL, I'm not sure which now!

3-4 coats

And last up for the jellies is Chlorophyll. I love this one so much I kept it on once I was done swatching :) ...even though this one took 3-4 coats the thing that I loved was that these polishes dry so fast! Each coat is so thin that I don't have to wait long to apply another coat, plus adding more coats doesn't really make the polish to thick on my nail like regular polish.

2 coats

And last one for this post, this is Refraction an absolutely beautiful, fun neon glitter topper! This is the perfect polish for summer :) The combination of this plus any of these neon jellies is so fun! They are bright and bubbly and I could seriously wear them all summer!

I did get another polish that goes along with this collection, Reflection which is a silver chrome holo. I didn't get a chance to swatch it just yet because I lost my lighting, but I'll come up with some fun designs with it for another post :)

Thank you for taking a few minutes to look over this post, I hope you enjoyed it! Thank you to Angelyn, from Doctor Lacquer for sending me these polishes! I absolutely love them!!
If you liked these polishes make sure check out Doctor Lacquer on Facebook and Instagram:, @doctorlacquer. She also has the twin set to these polishes, which are the same colors but all holo = HEAVEN!! :P

Extra photo just for is a fun design (inspired by Madam Luck) that I did on my mom before she left, using some of the colors shown above :)

Hello! I hope you all had a fun and safe Holiday and are still enjoying your weekend :) I just wanted to share a few photos with you guys from my wedding. I have a lot of polishes to swatch during this next week so you should have a lot to look forward to but I figured since I haven't posted in a few weeks I'd just show you guys a few wedding pics :) I hope you enjoy the pics!

And of course my nails :P 

The polish I used was Miss Unis by Sassy Cats Lacquer.

Thank you for taking a moment to look through my pics :) If you like them (even though most of these are from a camera phone, please take a moment to check out my cousin's (my photographer) Facebook: Felicia Taylor Photography. She also has more pictures posted there :)
