Good afternoon lovelies! I have a fun post for you guys today! :) I've been meaning to share this one for about a week but I've been so busy working I haven't had time to sit down and write the post until now. 

If you follow me on Facebook and/or Instagram you have probably seen this design already, but for those of you who don't, I think you'll really like it :) 

I received a few items from the Born Pretty Store to review and I even have a 10% off coupon for all of my followers :) (Scroll to the bottom for the Coupon Code).

Link to Owl Decals:

I think these owls are adorable! I love the colors they used, so I decided to stick with the same colors for my design.

The colors I used for this design were China Glaze, Street Chic, Def Defying, Sinful Colors, Snow Me White and Savage. To create the Chevron accent nail I used Chevron nail decals from @teismom (you can find her on Instagram).

I really like how this design turned out but I didn't feel that it was complete, so I decided to also use some neon studs I received from the Born Pretty Store to finish it up :)

Link to studs:

(Because I don't have white studs I just painted the two square studs with white polish).

I absolutely love this design! It is now one of my most liked photos :) So Thank you all for that!
I normally am not a big fan of water decals but these were so easy to apply.

If you would like to see my YouTube video on how I did this design you can watch it here:

Unfortunately as of right now it can't be watched on Mobile devices...I am looking into how to fix that, but if you watch it on a computer please let me know what you think!

As always thank you for taking a few minutes to check out my post :) If you would like these decals or studs you can find them on the BornPrettyStore website:
This store has a wide variety of nail art supplies such as brushes, dotting tools, makeup sponges, studs, stickers, decals, etc. So I highly recommend you check it out! And please use the Coupon Code:  UTG10

Hello! As promised I have another post for you :) ...and a few more (really fun ones) still to come! :)
The goodies I will be sharing with you today are 4 beautiful polishes from Above The Curve Nail Lacquer. This is a new Indie Brand to me, I had heard of them before, but I have not tried any of their polishes until now...and I must say that I am very impressed!

One thing I absolutely love about this brand is that they are a cause based Indie Brand trying to help raise awareness for Shriner's Hospitals for Children and Scoliosis. $1 of every bottle of polish sold goes to Shriner's Hospital for Children.

This really means a lot to me that they are raising awareness for scoliosis because I myself have had scoliosis since I was about 8-9 years old. If you would like to learn more about it you can read about it here.

**These products were sent to me for review. Please see me Disclosure Policy listed in the Tabs above.**

These 4 polishes make up the Summer Destinations Collection by Above the Curve and from left to right are: Venice Beach, Boardwalk, Myrtle Beach and Conney Island.

2 coats

Venice Beach is a gorgeous orange polish with orange and gold glitter. The consistency of this polish was amazing! I was very impressed. 

2 coats

Myrtle Beach is such a fun pink! I have quite a few pink polishes but none of them have the fun silver glitters that this one has. Again, the consistency of this polish was very impressive. It applied so smoothly.

2-3 coats

Conney Island is my favorite of the 4...even though there is a blue one! :P I love that this purple has silver and blue glitters! The blue catches your eye and makes you do a double take, because you don't expect to see blue in a purple polish.

3 coats

And last up is Boardwalk. This is such a gorgeous blue (and like I always say I love my blues), but the consistency of this one didn't quite match that of the others. It was a little bit thicker and a little bit more difficult to apply...but overall it is still a gorgeous polish!

So there you have your Summer Destinations! :) Have you gone anywhere fun and exciting this summer? I spent my Honeymoon on Cannon Beach :) But that's the only place I've gone.

If you like this collection, or just a specific polish, you can find them at Above the Curves online shop:

Hi lovelies! :) Sorry I've been MIA lately, I just started a new job so I haven't had as much time to post...but I have a few posts lined up for you guys so hopefully I'll be able to post them within the next week. 

Today I'm excited to share with you a beautiful design inspired by Pink Flying Cow 87 on YouTube
(you can see the video tutorial here).

The colors I used for this design were Essie, Fear or Desire, China Glaze, Happy Go Lucky and KB Shimmer, Life Rose On with China Glaze, Fairy Dust over the top.

The black is hand panted using acrylic paint and a small nail art brush, and the white dots were done with a dotting tool and white acrylic paint.

I absolutely love the way this design turned out! I fall in love with a majority of the Nail videos Pink Flying Cow posts, so when I saw this design I knew I had to recreate it :) I love that it's a different kind of butterfly nail art then what a majority of other nail artists (myself included) have done.

What do you guys think? Do you like this style of Butterfly Nails, or do you prefer the other way?
