NOTD: YSL Bleu Majorelle

I recently bought this nail polish on during a 20% off sale, luck for you... this YSL PROMO is still on & on top of the 20% you get to choose 6 samples for free!

Bleu Majorelle is an amazing bright blue polish that is opaque in 2 coats. The finish is extremely glossy and smooth! It may be the most impressive formula ever, and the brush is not far behind!

This color is great because you can wear it year-round, 
and that is exactly what I plan to do! :)

Products Used: 
YSL- 18 Bleu Majorelle.

The mani was extremely doable and the turkey is quite adorable!

Happy Thanksgiving!

NOTD: Reverse French Tip

This color combo screams Holidays to me :) 
The red is Avon and the dark gray is China Glaze Stone Cold from the hunger games collection.

CG Stone Cold is a micro-shimmer dark grey polish that dries matte and really only needs one careful coat to be opaque and smooth. I definitely love this polish with a top coat better since the shimmer is much  more visible and festive this way :)

After painting a coat of Stone Cold I took some hole reinforcement stickers and placed about 1/3 of it on the bottom half of my nail then painted 2 coats of red on the top part of the nail. I carefully peeled the sticker off while the polish was still tacky and added 2 coats of clear top coat.

I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is this week! that means excess food and excess sales {although I don't think i'll be joining in the deal hunts this year}!!! :D

NOTD: Butter London Knackered {Revisited}

So, I wasn't at all happy with knackered on its own and decided that I needed to revisit it. 

What a great idea it is to layer it over different colors, especially greens, purples, and blues!

Knackered over Essie Stylenomics. 
It turned the base color almost black {it's actually a dark green} and gave it an amazing 'starry sky' effect!

NOTD: Fishtail Chevron Mani

I finally had some time on my hands to do some nail art and after seeing Chalkboard Nails do this Fishtail Mani, I needed on my own nails asap!

I opted for using just 2 colors instead of having an ombré effect like hers. I used a dark steel grey glitter that has a matte finish sans topcoat instead of black.
  {don't mind my stained nails}

 Happy Thursday :)
