Lest we Forget

I wear a little poppy, as red as red can be, to show that I remember, those who fought for me.

Review: Born Pretty Store Nail Art Display Tips

An excellent tool for practicing Nail Art or swatching; these display tips from Born Pretty Store have definitely come in handy. 


I've decided to use them to swatch my gel polish collection as it's hard to judge the color of the polish from the sticker on the outside of the bottles. This gives me something to browse through when I'm trying to decide what to put on my nails


The Display Tool comes with 50 practice nails, a screw and bolt to connect them all. 
It retails for $3.59USD with FREE international shipping as always.

Review: China Glaze Shades of Nude

I've been a fan of China Glaze for years. So when Nail Polish Canada offered to send along a few new shades from one of their spring collections I was thrilled!

Bare Attack: A gorgeous taupe-brown creme polish 

Note to Selfie: A classic nude creme polish 

Kill the Lights: A sexy mauve creme polish

Each polish went on in two easy coats with a beautiful glossy finish. Swatches above were topped off with Seche Vite.

I'd love to get my hands on a few more from this collection, have a look here.

Spring Floral Gel Mani

I would say it's beginning to look a lot like spring, but it appears the weather in Canada hasn't quite made up its mind in the matters of weather... surprise surprise. Instead, I made my own spring flowers. 


Featuring Madam Glam Sexy Purple as the base and a myriad of other gel polishes for the floral design.
