Gradient Stamping Design Using Big-Ass Stamper from Jolie Polish

I purchased the turbo stamper (or as I call it, the “Big-Ass Stamper” or #BAS) from Jolie Polish months & months ago, but I didn’t have a blog at the time so I couldn’t write a proper review. I did flap my gums a bit in an Instablog review for the Wizard of Oz mani that I did, which can be found here.

Size comparison of the turbo stamper (Big-Ass Stamper) from Jolie Polish vs XL stampers from Fab Ur Nails.

Lawd chyle, this thang is huge. As you can see, it’s about four times the size of an XL stamper from Fab Ur Nails, about which I wrote this blog review.

The BAS is 6cm x 4cm of soft & squishy silicone. I would say that it’s sticky, but not suuuuper sticky. My descriptive terms are very technical, I know. Continue reading “Gradient Stamping Design Using Big-Ass Stamper from Jolie Polish”


Review of Esmaltes da Kelly Nail Polish from Beautometry

After readin’ my blog post & seein’ the YouTube video of my review on the Creative Shop Space Collection stamper, Beautometry asked me to review some stamping polishes from Esmaltes da Kelly. I received three polishes, a Vive la Vie stamping plate & a nail file.

Lemme first give a huge shoutout to Beautometry for such generosity. Their kindness has given me another opportunity to act a damn fool on the innernets. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Ima tell y’all right now, this’ll be a pic-heavy post. You’ve been warned.

The polishes that I received are Leo, Doguito & Carina. The Vive la Vie plate is titled “Vacation,” but I’m not reviewin’ the plate in this post. That review will be up a bit later.

Review of Lady Queen Water Decals

I finally had some time last week to review the water decals that I received from Lady Queen. I hadn’t used water decals in so long, I’d forgotten how great they are. Perfect for some quick nail art & super easy to apply.

The Lady Queen decals were no different. They were a piece’a cake to put on & these flowers are just gorgeous.

I’ll be honest with ya…when I applied the first decal, my initial thought was, “OMG NAIL FAIL!” but I immediately had a moment of inspiration, added an additional technique & salvaged the second nail. *fist bump* Continue reading “Review of Lady Queen Water Decals”


Cupcake Polish Swatches & Reviews

After months of seein’ Cupcake Polish pics on the ol’ Instawebs, I finally decided to wipe the drool off’a my phone & place an order. The only thing I have to say is… what the hhhhhhhelllll took me so long to get on the damn bus?!

*glances over at her 27 Jolie Polish bottles*

Oh. Yeah. THAT’S where all of my monies have run off to lately.

Anyboobs…swatch pics, nail art & macros after the jump. So let’s grab a beer & chat.

My three new babies are Berry Good Looking (BGL from here on out), Blood Hound (BH) & Bat-chelor Pad. BGL & BH were the two Cupcakes that literally made my eyeballs fly outta my head all cartoon-style every time I’d see em. So duh, I *had* to get those. And since I’m an absolute whore for blue & green polishes, Bat-chelor Pad was a no-brainer.

I dove right into BGL, as I typically swatch colors from lightest to darkest, but there’s really nothin’ “light” about BGL. ‘Cept for the light that coMES SHOOTIN’ OUTTA YER NAILS WHEN YER WEARIN’ IT CUZ HOLY SHIT LOOKIT THAT LIQUID HOLO SEX!

Seriously one’a the most gorgeous, sparkly polishes I’ve ever seen in my life. Ugh. It’s no wonder that BGL won Best Indie Brand Polish, Best Purple Polish *AND* Best Holographic Polish of 2015, as voted on by Peachy Polish readers. *hair flip*
