Reviewing Elfing Around by Moon Shine Mani…

From left to right: Swirly Twirly Gumpdrops (turquoise linear holo), Jovie (red linear holo), Very Purpley (violet with gold shimmer), Buddy the Elf (metallic green filled with micro gold flakies), The Naughty List (blackened plum linear holo) and last but not least Smiling’s my Favorite  (antique gold metallic with micro scattered holo).

I have to say that I’m impressed. This is the debut collection from Moon Shine Mani by Phoebe Moon. I purchased her entire collection as a Christmas gift to myself… 

It was so hard deciding which one to wear… 

First mani was Swirly Twirly Gumdrops… Omg its the most beautiful turquoise and when the light hits it its breathtaking.

 Okay I’m gushing over this entire collection. On first impressions its a beautiful collection all can be easily one coaters but I always  do two.  My second mani was… The Naughty List. This one is my top favorite. I say top favorite because personally they are all my favorites. 

It’s perfect and looks so good on my now short nails… the pictures are two coats no base or top coat because I really wanted to test the wear time. I had no real chipping issue until my full third day and that’s good for me because I’m super rough on my nails. 

My next mani… Jovie and Smiling’s my favorite. 

These colors just look amazing Jovie is the perfect color red and Smiling’s my Favorite is the perfect gold. This mani just screams Christmas to me. 

To be continued as I go through this collection one polish/mani at a time!!! Happy polishing be back soon.

Sinful Mini Haul!!! 

So Black Friday was nice for me… While shopping the sales at my local Target, I decided to walk through the beauty department and guess what I discovered?

 As a matter of fact I’ll show you… 

Target had sinful colors 3 for $5.00 which made me extremely happy… I can’t say what was from what collection but all the color options were beautiful. I grabbed these but if my budget allowed it I would’ve grabbed them all… goodness!!!

I haven’t had a chance to swatch them yet, but will be doing so as soon as my boys give me a minute of peace… LoL 

I bought a back up for each of the two limited edition glitters: That’s Elfed Up & Sleigh My Name. Since no one can ever have to much white polish, I also grabbed an extra Snow Me White. 

Until next time happy polishing!!! 

Honorable Mention…

Base color – China Glaze: Frostbite /Accent nail – O.P.I.: I Cannoli Wear OPI /Orly: Prism Gloss Silver this color combination was eye catching and so worth the time. No staining at all and removal was a breeze. 

I recieved so many compliments on this mani and I hated when it was time to take it off… 

Day 1… 

Day 4… 

Day 5… excuse the dry cuticles (suggestions on a good oil or cream?) Well happy polishing loves see you next time… 

New Indie for me… 

Well through a group page for Polish Con I was introduced to Leesha’s Lacquer and owner Alicia. I ordered five mystery minis. 

 They are pretty but a bit more sheer than I expected well all but one… Tempter (on my middle finger) was beautiful and opaque in two coats. All are two coats in the picture.


 I did purchase one full size bottle of polish it is named Grape Escape. 

It’s gorgeous and completely opaque in two coats. My interest is piqued by this indie brand… I’ll be watching this one. All polishes are Handmade 5-Free, Cruelty Free and Vegan Lacuers.

Until next time… Happy polishing!!! 

In Need of Positive Vibes…

Today has been a tiring day… Every part of the day was a struggle to get through. I made it but oh my goodness it was rough. How was your day?  Hopefully better than me… 

Ok so these got me by today and I will be looking back on them from time to time as needed. 

I’m blessed to see a new day and for that I’m truly grateful…  

Love of Red… 

I just did my nails and I haven’t done clean up but just had to share…

I so need use oil on my cuticles the use of acetone is over drying to the tenth power. 

Orly – Star Spangled / Essie – Top Coat 

I must say that the Essie Top Coat is fast drying and prolongs my manicures. This shade of red from orly is completely opaque in 2 coats and makes me smile everytime I wear it. What you see in the bottle is what you get. A beautiful red with micro shinmer throughout. Without a topcoat its not to shiny but still pretty adding a top coat makes it even breathtaking especially in the sun. 

I’m in need of a really good cuticle oil so any suggestions are welcome. Happy polishing… until my next mani!!!
