Chanel Peridot.

Are there words?

Because I feel pretty speechless.

Grape..Set..Match & Servin' Up Sparkle

This is 2 coats of Grape..Set..Match.

Grape..Set..Match is a purple polish with a deeper purple shimmer.

I feel like I could have used another coat but in real life it looked less patchy.

Here it is with a coat of Servin' Up Sparkle.

Servin' Up Sparkle is a silver glitter with smaller circle glitter and larger hexagons.

I love glitter. It's no secret. So this glitter has a place in my helmer even though I'm sure I have some dupes to it.

OPI Swimsuit..Nailed It! & Crown Me Already

*Yawn* It's an early morning for me today and I just hopped on to share these swatches with you guys. :)

This is 2 coats of Swimsuit..Nailed It!

Swimsuit.. Nailed It! is a vibrant blue glass flecked polish.

I almost passed on this one but I'm so glad I didn't. :D

I then added 1 coat of Crown Me Already.

Crown Me Already is a silver glitter with large glitter hexagons.

Crown Me Already seems opaque on it's own but I love it layered.

Well done OPI, well done.

Forever 21 Flower Pot Polishes

I knew as soon as pictures of new Forever 21 polishes shaped like flower pots showed up on MUA that I wanted them. 
I tried them all over a black creme polish.

This is 1 coat of Silver Rose.

Silver Rose is a silver polish with larger holographic hexagons and smaller silver circle glitters.

I thought this would be a dupe for my love, Pa Q9, but it's not. 

This is very similar to OPI Servin' Up Sparkle. I think I will compare these...

This is 1 coat of Rose Blossom.

Rose Blossom is a pink glitter with two different sized glitters.

This one reminded me a bit of OPI I Lilly Love You but with glitter instead of flakes. It's a bit muted over black. I am wearing it now over OPI Do You Think I'm Tex-y on my toes and I love it.

This is 1 coat of Blue Rose.

Blue Rose is a blue glitter polish with small blue glitter and holographic glitter hexagons.

Isn't is gorgeous and icy? 

I am seriously ogling this macro shot.

This is 1 coat of Magenta Rose.

Magenta Rose is a dark pink glitter polish with holographic glitter.

This is stunning over black. It's like the glitter is floating.

This is 1 coat of Black Rose.

Black Rose is a black polish with silver and holographic glitter.

This polish over black blended in too well.

And in case you think the bottle looks familiar.
Here it is next to a Goldie polish.

Orly Again

Sometimes you need a pretty polish like this to keep your life simple and sweet.

Orly Gilded Coral.

And just for kicks- my Deborah Lippmann Collection. If you would have told me a year ago I would have invested over $140 in a set of polishes I would have laughed.
I love these so much though. Worth it.

Born Pretty Review

About a month ago I was contacted by Born Pretty to review some products for them. I have honestly been so busy that I have just gotten around to reviewing them. I'm a bad blogger, I know.
Before I was asked to review for them, I had actually made some purchases from them myself. I was impressed with their customer service and the free shipping.

Born Pretty is an online nail supply store that sells stamping plates, nail art supplies, contacts, cosmetics, and much more. 

For my review I chose stamping plate M77.

I've actually been thinking about ordering this plate for a while now and was super excited to try it out. They also kindly included a stamper and scrapper with the plate.

I have a double sided Konad Stamper that I usually use for stamping. I was worried a bit that this stamper wouldn't be as user friendly as my stamper.

I started out with 2 coats of Orly Flirty.

I hadn't worn a pink polish in quite a while so I felt this would make a good background for stamping.

I used Konad white and the very top design on M77. I thought it came out very cute and I received compliments on my manicure all day!

I did try out the 1 sided stamper and I had no problems with it what so ever. It was actually easier to position the designs than my Konad stamper. I did not use the scraper because it is metal and I usually use a gift card cut in half.

All in all, I think Born Pretty is a great place to find some nail art supplies for cheap and I will continue to order from them.

The Born Pretty Store is kindly offering a coupon code for my readers as well!

You can get 10% off your order at Born Pretty with the coupon code RMJ61.

(Some of these products were sent to me for review)
