Royal Cake Pop Nail Party

There’s nothing I like more than a good, ole fashioned Nail Party!

Last weekend (BEFORE I was infected with the ‘rona), I was blessed with a 24 hour visit from close friends. Although Shari is not at all interested in my beauty and nail obsessions, Brittany was more than happy to play with my nail stuff, while Shari taught a ZOOM Sunday School Class. Nails are so much more fun together!

I started off with Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and two coats of Sinful Colors “Royal Cake Pop”. Going through my nail decals, I came across a small pack of Scratch Accent Nail Wraps in white and gold. (These are old, old, old – from a 2016 Beauty Box 5.) I thought the white and gold with give off a nice “Art Deco” vibe with the chromed silver finish of “Royal Cake Pop”. The white strip on my pinky turned out fantastic, but I was startled to see that the gold strip turned olive green over the silver polish!

I finished up with a coat of Glisten & Glow Top Coat. This manicure felt like it last forever – a full week with just minor edge wear. Thank you Confection Crush Collection!

I’m looking forward to another nail party…someone come play with me! (After quarantine is over, of course!)


January Beauty Box 5 – Ev’rythang Done

So Beauty Box 5 has gone full ghetto with the theme for January – “Ev’rythang Done”. Well, okay then…

So, I’m going to get ev’rythang done with Bodipure Keratin Gloves (Intriguing); Nails, Inc. Nail Polish in “Bruton Mews” (a deep, dark green – I don’t think I’ve ever seen a polish this color); Scratch Customer Accent Nail Wraps (These are supposed to work over polish); Novex Bamboo Sprout Deep Conditioning Treatment (I’m skeptical of this one – the foilpack says “bamboo sprouds”); Not Your Mother’s Haircare Plump for Joy Thickening Hair Lifter (Weird); and Salon Grafix Freezing Hair Spray.

After I keratin my hands, I’m going to paint my nails green and put gold stickers on them…then put bean sprouds in my hair…and then time for lifting and freezing. Then ev’rythang will be done.
