》Swatch & Review: Aurora Lacquer

I was so excited to win Aurora Lacquer's giveaway on the month of my birthday! I feel I got lucky bc it was the week of my birthday and I used my mom's birth year to guess s number out of 2000. Now, here is my swatch and review for her 5 polishes that she generously gave me!
》Aurora Lacquer is a hand made, 5 free indie polish! 《

Mai Swatch & Review:

First swatch is called 'Shimmering Orchids', 2 coats with top coat. It dries in a soft texture bc of the multi colored micro glitters. Honestly, I thought this one could've been a bit more thinner so it would be easier to apply. I found it hard to put back the brush in the bottle bc it would get gooey. The pro about this one was that the drying time was wonderful by first and second coat! Removing the lacquer on my nails was the best I had ever taken off! I loved it! The glitters never separated though the base could be thinner for an easier apply and during the removal of the polish, there was no need to scrape off my nails, which I personally loved about this one!

Secondly, here is 'Daffodil Sorbet' one of my favorite cream lacquers!! 2 coats plus top coat! Drying time took no more than five minutes! I absolutely adore this soft, creamy yellow polish so much bc it only needed two coats to get a good coverage! Application was creamy, dreamy and silky smooth! I absolutely loved this one! MY FAVORITE!!

Third swatch is called 'My Fair Lily' is a creamy, off white/pinkish color and in this swatch, I used 2 coats plus top coat. Application was a dream to apply as well as for drying time was wonderful! Absolutely another one of favorites from the five!

Fourth swatch is called 'The Dusty Fairy' 2 coats for a good coverage plus top coat. This one was absolutely stunning! It has a ton of shine and holo glitters galore jam packed in this bottle. Application was a bit on the thicker side, though the drying time on this one was amazingly fast!

Last but not least, 'Poppy Parade' a pink & purple glitter in multiple sizes that add a nice shimmery finish was done in two coats over a deep purple polish that doesn't have a name by The Face Shop. I didn't need to fish out the glitters nor for the flower glitters. Was an easy application and drying time as well was great!

Though these two (Shimmering Orchids & The Dusty Fairy) had a thick base, they were very pretty. I favorite the cream polishes (Daffodil Sorbet & My Fair Lily) bc can I say it again? OMG, they applied so dreamy and the colors were so subtle and creamy! I love them SO much! ♥♡♥ The moment I saw these two, I just knew I would love these!
Thank you for this opportunity to win your giveaway and to swatch and review on your indie polishes @auroralacquers! I enjoyed it!!

》BornPrettyStore Water Nail Decals Review

Featured polishes in this manicure are by: @chinaglazeofficial 'Keepin' It Teal', 'Are You Jelly?', 'Pool Party', & @orlynails 'Glowstick'.

I wanted to do a Saran Wrap mani but ended up painting each nail individual colors, so that I can review some @bornprettystore water nail decos! Unfortunately, that didn't work out, I painted each nail different colors and added some polka dots on the base.

Two weeks ago, I had received my first package review from http://www.bornprettystore.com that consisted of water nail decals, French Manicure nail strips & a baggie of champagne rhinestones.

On this review, I have used some adorable water nail decals that has a variety of animals and bows. Here, I used some purple bows, a puppy in a tea cup, Guinea pig with a big bow on top of its head, balloons, and a bunny.

These water decals were simple to use. You simply pick out the print you desire to use and cut it out, make sure you take off the clear film before dunking it into a cup of water for 10 secs. Slide the paper back off from the nail decal with your finger tips and carefully apply it front side up onto your nail. Carefully, using a napkin to dab the extra water off and apply your favorite top coat to seal it finish!

I personally, think these are adorable and fun to use! They are quite simple and as I applied it onto my nails as they dried, they dried completely well and flat onto the nails. Sealing with a top coat, I found no problems with it as it didn't smear the colors off the decals or bubbling/lifting the decals up. I'm pretty much in love with these water nail decals..

》Mai nails & my Häagin Dazs Tiramisu Gelato frozen dessert review

My first thoughts of this Häagin Dazs Tiramisu Gelato frozen dessert was that I just have to try it, since I really love the Tiramisu cakes. I have to say, I'm glad I tried it out!

I just wanted to show off my nails and my Häagin Dazs Tiramisu Gelato frozen dessert bc it is so good! I personally didn't like the chunks of the Tiramisu cake bc it was a bit frozen or as if crispy, almost on the dry side. Nonetheless, the gelato was so smooth and delicious, as if every spoonful was maple syrup! :'d ♥

If you enjoy coffee or sweet and smooth desserts, you should definitely try this Häagin Dazs Tiramisu Gelato frozen dessert!
