I was recently sent some beautiful water decals and glitter from Lady Queen to review. Lady Queen is a Worldwide Online Shop for Makeup, Nail Art, Jewelry, Apparel and much more :) They have great deals on many nail art items and they offer free shipping world wide, so I would definitely recommend you guys check them out! ;)

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

I like to have my decals last me longer than one mani, so I typically don't use all of them at once. For this mani I used Funky Fingers Black Knight and Gesso and Sinful Colors Pink Poppys. I thought the design was pretty with a regular shiny topcoat, but I applied a matte topcoat to make it pop! Then I added the yellow rhinestones which are from Winstonia.

If you would like to see how I applied the decals you can see my YouTube Tutorial here: 

This design was a happy accident :D I sat down to play with my other decals and ended up using the glitter as well. The glitter comes in a 12 pack, so there are plenty of colors to chose from, which I really like. I can't wait to play with more of the colors. And the decals are really easy to use, the only thing I didn't like was that I kept getting little black pieces from the outline of the decals all over my nails. It's kind of hard to explain, just know that if you use them, make sure to cut inside the line so the black line doesn't come off when you're applying your decals.

Good evening :) Today I have one beautiful polish to share with well as my review of LondonTown Lakur's Topcoat and their Instant Smudge Fix.

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

To the Queen, With Love is a beautiful deep violet/purple. You could absolutely get away with only one coat, I applied 2. The formula is amazing, as always :)

The topcoat works really well. I would compare it to Seche Vite...Although, I did have problems with bubbles in mine. I'm not sure if it was user error, or what. But every time I applied the topcoat after I first got it, it left bubbles on my nail. I'm going to keep using it, because other than that I am really impressed with it, it dries fast and it doesn't smudge my nail I just want to make sure that the bubbles aren't a normal thing for this topcoat.

And for the Instant Smudge Fix...I was actually hesitant about this. Or maybe I should say, doubtful. I kind of didn't expect this to work, but to my surprise it totally did! While I was swatching To the Queen, With Love I actually nicked my thumb before the polish dried (accidentally...or coincidentally :P), so I used the Instant Smudge Fix and it made it look like nothing happened! The nail polish was smooth, no nick, no bump. I was impressed.

I would highly recommend these products :) So if you would like to try them out for yourself you can find these products here: LondonTownUSA

OMG! I was just looking at my Blog and realized I never shared my last post for the 31DC2015! I'm so sorry :S I did finish it a few weeks late, but I totally forgot to post my roundup of the last 10 I hope you haven't been waiting on them and haven't said anything because I feel really bad. So without saying anything else, here they are. 


I was inspired by the orange colors of fall. When I lived in Oregon, this time of year was so beautiful! The trees were vibrant orange, yellow and red...and here in Texas, you just don't see any of that. So I figured I'd bring those colors to my nails :P

The colors I used were Essie Fear or Desire, Zoya Maura, Royal Polish Little Peep and China Glaze Merry Berry and Street Chic. The studs are from Winstonia.


This design was inspired by Megan Trainor's bedspread in her video for "Dear Future Husband". The colors I used were OPI Hey Baby and a grey from Forever 21, along with white acrylic paint.


If you can't tell what movie I was inspired by, we can't be friends. LOL! :P j/k. My husband and I are big Star Trek fans and I really wanted to do a Star Trek Themed Nail Design. The polishes I used were Funky Fingers Black Knight, Sinful Colors Devious and Savage, plus Julep Catrina. For the little com badges I used China Glaze Passion and I'd Melt for You.


I've never been a big fan of this day because I typically spend longer looking for a book than I actually do on the design. I almost skipped this day all together, but I thought about how cute it would be to recreate a composition notebook...and although I like the way it turned out, I think the colors are backwards :P My bad! Polishes used: Funky Fingers Black Knight and white acrylic paint.


You know how you have A TON of beautiful clothes on one (or more) of your Pinterest boards? ;) Well I decided to take inspiration from one of the dresses I have pinned on my Pinterest. I didn't have an exact stamp to match the image from the dress, but I found the closest one. The products I used were, Emma Jean Morning Mist, Sinful Colors Snow Me White and Winstonia plate W318.


I've been really attracted to Hounds Tooth designs lately so I thought it would be fun to try it out for this day in the Challenge. Products used: Wet N Wild LAC-My Mani?, LVX Sienna and Funky Fingers Black Knight. Stamp is from Cheeky plate CH8. I also used a fun Clear Jelly Stamper which you can see in my Video Tutorial (link below).


This was another design inspired by something from one of my Pinterest boards. It was a simple artwork done on canvas. Products used: LondonTown Chelsea Porcelain and white, black and pink acrylic paint.


Now that I'm in Texas I thought that it was appropriate to paint the Texas flag. Polishes used: Sinful Colors Devious and Endless Blue along with Funky Fingers Gesso.


I know that bats aren't actually 'supernatural', so think of these as Vampire Bats ;) Products used: China Glaze Coconut Kiss and Funky Fingers Black Knight with Bundle Monster Holiday plate BM-H08.


For this design I was inspired by one of my favorite IG accounts, Lemmingspolish. She created this cute Candy Corn Animal Print design and I loved it so much I had to create it! If you are on IG make sure to follow her to see the Tutorial :)

Products used: Funky Fingers Black Knight, Emma Jean Beach Party, China Glaze Happy Go Lucky and Fairy Dust.


Saving the best for last! This is another design that was actually inspired by not only nails I love, but one of my other favorite IG accounts, twi_star. She created this fun Halloween mani that once I got to this day I knew I had to recreate. I didn't have the exact same stamps that she used for each nail, so I had to improvise and find my own :) Products used: China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, Essie Fear or Desire, Ole Cliente and Funky Fingers Black Knight. The stamps I used were Bundle Monster Holiday plates BM-H06, BM-H07 and BuNa Holiday plate HD-C. I also finished this design with a matte topcoat.

So there you have it! The last 10 designs for the 31DC2015! I hope you enjoyed them :) I'd love to know which ones are your favorites! Day 5, 10, 14 and 31 are my favorites!

It's almost Friday! :D I'm glad the weekend is so close. There is a Chili Fest going on Saturday that my husband and I might go to, because he's a big Chili fan :P ...but it's in the middle of the day and it's still in the 90's here, so I feel like chili and 90 degrees doesn't really go together. Idk. Maybe I'm just weird, but it should be fun :)

Today I have some GORGEOUS polishes to share with you guys! This is the ShopLVX Fall Collection. If you haven't heard of ShopLVX polishes you're missing out. They are a polish line inspired by the Fashion on the Runway, so if you're into fashion it would be wise to follow them ;)

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

Up first is Nu a beautiful, pinkish nude. This polish was pretty sheer on the first coat, the second coat almost covered the nail but it did need 3 coats for full opacity. I did really like how this polish matched my skin tone perfectly. When I first applied it it was weird to look at my hand because it looked like my nails were just apart of my skin. 

Next up is Monarch. This polish is a pretty Bronze-y gold. It comes across more gold in the photos, but I promise it's not plain gold. It's much prettier in person (I think). This polish applied a little more opaque than Nu, it was almost opaque with only one coat, but it did need 2.

This is my personal favorite! I've been wearing it all week :D This is Sienna, a beautiful rustic/burnt orange/brick red...(you pick which one you see. I see orange :P). The application for this polish was like butter! It applied so smooth and even. Plus I could almost have gotten away with only 1 coat! 

This is my second favorite :) Narcissist is a Stunning turquoise metallic polish with hints of green and even a little bit of purple in certain lighting. The sparkle is definitely eye catching! 2 coats for full opacity.

Rhone is a beautiful, light blush pink. The application for this one was almost identical to Nu in that it was very sheer and needed 3 coats.

And last up! The only polish that seriously confused the hell out of me, Militaire. When I first unboxed all of the polishes I could have sworn this was Sage green. Then when I got a closer look I noticed it was grey and was slightly disappointed because the green would have made this collection pop! As I applied it all I was seeing was grey. It applied very opaque, even and smooth. 1 coat is almost completely opaque, but 2 is perfect. Once I took pictures of this polish I noticed that I was picking up green undertones, so to figure out what the heck I was seeing (and make sure I wasn't going crazy :P) I went to the ShopLVX's website to get the confirmation I needed. This is a grey polish inspired by the Runway, but it does have green undertones. I'm so glad I'm not losing it! 

So there it is! ShopLVX's Fall Collection! 
I love these colors, the application for all of them is smooth and even, and most of them are super opaque!
