Born Pretty store nail stamping plates # 131

Born Pretty store nail stamping plates # 131

This product was provided in exchange for a honest review. All thoughts are my own. 

I had been dying to try nail art stamping plates when Born Pretty Store contacted me. I chose the set with 12 plates that retails at $12.63.  I picked this set because I caught sight of hello kitty! 

When they first arrived I ripped a plate open and stamped around on some polish I already had on.

YO YO lipgloss giveaway

I hope you guys love beauty products as much as me! I could never have enough gloss and here is a chance to win some! Good luck!


I recently was given the opportunity to review the YoYo Lipgloss  for free in exchange for my 100% honest and unbiased opinion on their product.
Ever heard of YoYo Lipgloss? Well neither had I before I was given the opportunity to review them.
My daughter is in love with this product. Here is what YoYo Lipgloss is, they are a flavored lipgloss on a retractable reel blinged out with a Your Initial on it or choose from a peace sign.
Here are pictures of the one that I received:
(I got the one with a H on it and the flavor is grape)
 What I really love about this lipgloss is that because of the clip that it comes with it has not gotten lost inside my purse or my daughters backpack. So many times with other ones that I have had in my purse I have always had a hard time located it. Another neat thing that is if you purchase other flavors of lipgloss that they are interchangeable with the reel that you already own. YoYo Lipgloss is the perfect stocking stuffer, goodie bag item for parties, added to the top presents to personalize them or really great for just about occasion. The designs and scents are so cute that any little girl, teen or young lady will like them. The lipgloss itself is not to thick or runny. It has the perfect consistency and does not feel sticky.
The YoYo Lipgloss can be purchased by clicking HERE

Avon opal topcoat VS Revlon Moon candy in moon dust

A bit ago when I learned this was going to be released I posted about my initial excitement. You can see that post here:

As I was staring at this topcoat from Avon I came to a new realization of what this reminded me of.

I sat the two together and they really do look similar In the bottles. I hadn't tried moon dust yet so I figured why not test Both at the same time. I wanted to know if application,coverage,look was to each brand to call this a dupe or if it was feasible to have both in my collection. 

So begins the nail polish war!!!

Mani of the day!

Back to my gothy roots! On the left hand I used nail stickers from OMGnailstrips (review coming up!) and on the thumb I used "a blank canvas" from Wet n' Wild. Then I stamped it with my new nail plates with the skull pattern.

Ruby kisses haul

Went out with the old man and while we were on the east side of Evansville he asked if there was any places I wanted to go. I said hmmmmmmmmm! I had been putting off checking out the beauty supply store on Covert ave and so I decided to go. I was told they had Ruby Kisses polish and I love the 2 I already own: teal envy, yellowed out. So I was on the hunt to see how much they wanted for the polishes. They had a shelf of the what I consider the basic polishes for $1.49, now they are only $0.99 each on the site but then you have to pay shipping and not having to do shipping I see this as a fair price (unless I'm buying bulk) I fell in love with 4 polishes but I  was broke so the old man bought them for me ❤❤❤

Here they are in their glory! 

Mani of the day

This Mani was a mix of hodpodged ideas. On the left hand I picked lightly colored polishes that I hadn't gotten to use yet. Pointer and middle are 2 of the cosmic polishes from Avon. The pink I can't remember what it was and on the pinky is Milani neon pink. Then I went through my stamping plate collection and picked different ones. I am practicing still to get better at it. Messed up on a few but like how they turned out anyways. 

On the right had I had teal envy from Ruby kisses and decided to try to use foil  I had on hand which was from a Lindt truffle. Then on the last 2 finger I slapped on some polish cut outs left from my bat nails. 

A little bit of random but was totally fun!

1999 by Darling Diva Polish from the Prince collection review

1999 by Darling Diva Polish from the Prince collection review
I received the following product in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. 

Information from etsy.
Party like its 1999!!!! This is full of circle glitters and bars in a clear base.

This is a full size 15ml bottle. This is a very easy applying polish. There may be some settling so as always a good ROLL is recommended. This polish has big ballz so don't shake too hard:)

I adore this polish!!! I am addicted to glitter and this has everything in a glitter I can ask for. I love purple,black and holo glitter (its some of my favorite!) I put it over random colors to see which help bring out the loveliness of this polish. This polish dried quickly without issues and I didn't have to fight to fish out any of the glitter. I put about 2 coats on each nail to place the glitter where I wanted it.

I took tons of pictures over many colors check it out below! Warning this is pic heavy.

Monday, August 5, 2013 a prepaid debit alternitive

We were provided a card in exchange fore review. All opinions and thoughts are my own

I recently got the chance to work with in review. I have had prepaid cards in the past that where just a basic card, no customizations at all. 

Whats the fun in that? offers catagories of all kinds and with art,comics, tv and more you are sure to find one that you will love.
NO Credit Check Use everywhere Visa® or MasterCard® is accepted

NO check cashing fees NO overdraft fees or late fees Access to ATMs worldwide

With so many categories to choose from such as comic,goth,tv and more you are sure to find a card to suite your tastes. When I saw the walking dead card that was on page 1 I already knew right away which I wanted. I received the card in a few days and called to activate it. I went out shopping and purchased some nail polish and lego's. I had set a pin when I called to activate it but forgot the pin as it didn't work when I tried it, so I ran it as credit and had no issue.

This is a card you can get and use for one time and cancel once its done* (alternative to a Visa gift card) or if you like many out there can't get a bank account you can have your paycheck deposited to the card.

There is a monthly fee of $5.95 per month*;
waived when you load at least $800 in the prior thirty (30) days via direct deposit.

 The service and site was amazing and it was awesome that they have so many choices! If you are looking for a prepaid card service with some personality then look no further than
