Fly Like a Bird - Fake Tattoos

/hihi

Hello there!

How is everything going??? It's been a while since I have been around...work is kind of crazy right now and I've been making bracelets. But I wanted to this time to show you some really awesome fake tattoos I received from the awesome Team at Fake Tattoos to review.

I wanna start by saying that I know we all get extremely busy every now and then and sometimes we just need something cute that will do the job - Fake Tattoos are the way to go!


The team at Fake Tattoos sent me the several of these nail tattoos and im soo soo excited i got the chance to try these - they are extremely easy to apply and super fast. No joke! Did you ever put on a bubble gum tattoo on? just like that! super easy.

How to transfer them to your nails:
1. Paint your nails - wait for them to dry
2. Cut out the desired tattoo
3. Take slowly away the plastic cover and press the tattoo on to the nail
4. Keep pressing with wet paper
5. When you feel that the paperbacking is sliding away you can slowly remove it
6. Let the tattoo dry for 5 min
7. Apply top coat (make sure to apply at least 2 coats - so it doesn't peel off)



I want to show you the cute mani I did with these awesome Tattoos.

What I used:
Sinful Colors - Sweet Nothing
Fake Tattoos - Fly Like a Bird tattoos
Out the Door - Top Coat




 Fake Tattoos is a swedish company that designs and sells temporary nail tattoos. Overall I was really pleased with the application - much easier than newspaper nails and did i say super cute? If you want to check them out please make sure to visit their website ----> here

I'll be showing you some more of these beauties later on this weekend.

Hugs,
Lydia

Sally Hansen - Mod About You

/hihi

Hello Lovelies, 

I wanted to show you what I got for really really dirty cheap the other day. I went to Target to find a thermometer for Nathan (he had the flu :( poor little guy) - he is doing well now :) on the clearance section I found this nail strips. 

These were regular $7.00 and they were on sale for $2.10 at check out with a coupon - I got it for $0.10!!!!!! Score! too bad I only bought 1 - since I had never used them I didn't know if I would like them - now that I have tested them this is what I got to say:

-Super easy application - no longer than 20 minutes
-Love the pattern
-Super impressed and happy!

Will love to try more patterns and I will report back on the staying power. 






Have you tried these Sally Hansen nails strips before? If so, do you like them. What was your experience with them like?

Hugs,

This is the Retro Style Cross Vintage Ring, this ring is adjustable which is a plus. My fingers are  chubby so adjustable rings when buying online are a total must. I also have to mention that I love chunky rings since I find they look soo much better on me than dainty rings - even to i looove dainty rings.  All this immediately made me want to have this ring.

Price:  $2.31
Material: metal
Beard Height: 4cm
Width: 2.7cm
Ring Size:adjustable

Wanna see more pictures? I think its very beautiful! - I was a little worried that the double ring was going to bother me when I first put it on, but once you wear it for a while you forget its there. I absolutely love this and I'm so rocking it tomorrow for work!

Born Pretty Store: Stamping Plate QA5

/hihi

Hello Lovelies,

Early this week I received this stamping plate from Born Pretty Store. This one is called Cute Bowknot Skull Anchor. QA5 image plate has images of bows, anchors and skulls. Great for nail art!

 This stamping plates comes with a protective film to protect it from scratches. Don't forget to remove it, otherwise it won't work. :)

Is it QA5 cool looking? The first thing I did once I got this plate was to test it on a piece of paper. Let me show you.
I didn't use a special polish but the images transfer really good. Any voids I'm sure are most definitely user errors. Oops!

What I used:
Sinful Colors - Sweet Nothing
P2 - 532 Blue's Brother
Born Pretty Store Plate - QA5
Out the Door - Top Coat


Now - I'm sooo happy how this manicure turned out - the stamping plate made this manicure a success on my book.

Price:  $2.99
Would I recommend it?: Yes

I know that the pictures are extremely gorgeous and they portray how wonderful they are but let me say - they are soooo much more beautiful in person.
