Daring Digits - Love Me Tender, Frosted Lights, & Holy Fire

*SQUEAL!!*  This is my Daring Digits Custom!! Do we love!?!  Ashley, the owner of Daring Digits, was so kind as to make me this custom for my Blogiversary Giveaway!!  Since we all know my obsession, I mean...passion, for white bases, I knew that would be what I started with.  Then while just thinking, I thought pink, red, and black would be cute for Valentine's Day coming.   Now black isn't a traditional Valentine's color I guess, so for some silly reason, Elvis came to mind and with it, Love Me Tender!  Sometimes I wonder how I earth my brain jumps to these things ;-) haha
So this mani is two coats with Wicked Fast top coat.  I have ideas to layer this too!  A third coat would probably be more opaque if you aren't a fan of visible nail line.
You can find Daring Digits polishes at For more info and to stay up to date, follow Ashley on Instagram - @daringdigits, blog -, and Facebook.
Only three of these were made, so make sure you enter my Blogiversary Giveaway for a chance to win #1 and #2!!  I kept #3 because it's my fave number ;-) haha
Close ups!!
Next is Frosted Lights!!
I was so excited when Ashley said she could do this one!  Two of these are included in the giveaway!  This was a Christmas polish but I think it's great for all year!
This is two coats with Wicked Fast top coat by Cult Nails.
I can't even describe how much I love this.  The tiny little rainbow of glitters just make me smile!
Close ups!
Next we have Holy Fire!
This is another beautiful one that caught my eye!!  Two of these will be given away!!  Thank you again to Ashley for all her generosity!!
This is three coats with Wicked Fast top coat.  I love the way it glows!  I'm believe this was created for the Priest of World of Warcraft.  Ashley has other polishes in the WoW collection too!

Close ups!! You can really see all the beautiful copper glitter!
I hope you enjoyed this post!! Don't forget, you have the opportunity to win these!!  Head to - Blogiversary Giveaway!
Have a great day!!
Much Love,

Smarty Lacquer - Always and Forever over Zoya - Kristen

Hi Everyone!! Just thought I'd have a bonus post for today to show off Smarty Lacquer by Zoe!!  This is the gorgeous Always and Forever.  I love the blue, yellow, and pink together!  And the base is slightly tinted pink, so it gives my blue base of Zoya Kristen, a different look!
I started with 2 coats of Zoya Kristen.  You can see my previous swatch of it - HERE! 
You can purchase from Zoya - HERE.  I talk about this a lot, but it is a Share the Love link, which is a way for me to earn points through them! So cool for me, but you guys can get something too! See what Zoya wrote: Remember EVERYONE WINS with "Share the Love": When someone clicks on your personal link and sets up an online account, a $5 coupon a coupon for a FREE Bottle of Zoya Nail Polish will automatically be placed in their account and can be used immediately on their current order. TIP: If you use this coupon and add 2 more polishes to your order, you get free shipping too! The coupon will appear in the "My Coupons/ Promos" section of their "My Account" Page.
Pretty great deal! And actually I got a bottle of their Qtica Growth Stimulator Click Here! (another link!) for the price of shipping (a $20 value!) through all their gifts of Share the Love points - didn't even do anything! Zoya had other promotions over the Holiday season, so they should be bringing back more prizes for Share the Love points soon! YAY! I have some more points that I can't wait to use. :-D 
I then added 1 coat of Always and Forever and topped with Wicked Fast top coat by Cult Nails.
You can find Smarty Lacquer on Etsy.  The full size Always and Forever is $8 and the mini is $4.  Zoe, the owner, is on Instagram as @only_at_Shelbys and her blog,  She also has a new Facebook page, but I didn't see a lot of posts yet :-)
You can see the bottle has a more blue tone, but the nails look almost purplish because of the pink over the blue!
Close up!!
I will be giving one of these away, so make sure you enter to win at my Blogiversary Giveaway!
Have a great rest of the day!! 
Much Love,

Wonder Beauty Products - Kismet and Let's Play Footsie

Hello Everyone!!! We had beautiful weather yesterday!!  I think today is supposed to drop again though - boo!!  It seems like it keeps going up and down, but hey, at least there hasn't been too much snow!! ;-)
Today I am excited to share two extremely beautiful polishes from Wonder Beauty Products.  First up, we have Kismet!  Look at that bottle!
This is two coats with Seche Vite top coat.  The polish applied beautifully and the mix of this is stunning! There are tiny blue and silver sparkles along with teal hexes in medium and small, and then some purple flakies for extra little pop!  Love it!
Jen posted this on her Etsy shop, which you can find here - Wonder Beauty Products.
You can stay up to date with Jen on her Facebook page, Blog, and Twitter too - @WonderJenProd.  Her polishes range from $10-11.  Also, Wonder Beauty Products will soon be sold at!

Is it me or does that blue with the silver sparkles look like a starry fading sky before it's completely dark?  It's just so beautiful!
This a picture using my bedroom lighting.  I just liked how the glitter looked! ;-) I adjusted the color slightly to make it more accurate.
Close up!  You can see the blue tiny hexes that shine in person but are so hard to capture on film!
Next we have Let's Play Footsie!
This is two coats and topped with Seche Vite.  Oh is this one gorgeous!!  It looks so deep with the jelly base and glitters floating through it!
There are gold, silver, and red hexagons in all sizes.  There is even a light microshimmer through the pink jelly base!
Is it just me or do bottle shots make you drool?
This is such a perfect shade!  Pink is always one of my favorites, but I don't wear it as often as I would like.  This is one that I will be reaching for because it is so interesting and fun!
Here is another bedroom lighting picture that showed off the glitter really well!  Again, I adjusted the color slightly.  LOVE that big red hex on the ring finger!
Close up!  Pretty cool right?  I bet this would be fantastic layered too!
I hope you enjoyed this post!  Please don't forget that both of these beauties will be given away!! Thank you Jen!!  Make sure you enter my giveaway - Blogiversary Giveaway!
Have a great day!!
Much Love,

The spring lineup includes three glitter top coats, two bold jellies, and four creamy pastels, one of which is scented.  "Our new line was created to play off the softer palette of spring, but also to accent unique glitters like small black dots and spring 2013 Pantone colors like the color of the year, Emerald Green.  We are also excited to debut this collection in our new printed bottles.  With the printed bottles, and our glitter grabbing flat brush, we feel our polish is a solid addition to any collection" says Rose.
