Nubar Finest Silks Review

Good Morning Lovelies!

Today I have some polish from Nubar's Finest Silks Collection to show you.

Let's jump right in shall we?
(side note...The sun was playing hide and seek when I swatched these, so some colors I may only have a shade pic...very sorry!!!)

The darker of the two greige colors.  
3 coats

The lighter of the two greige colors.  
Actually a bit lighter in reality.
3 coats

The darker of the two reds, slightly pinker too, and super shiny as you can see!
2 coats

The brighter of the two reds, and again, super shiny!
2 coats

A pink-nude color.
2 coats

Pretty nude creme.
2 coats

Pretty pearly white
3 coats

Formula on these was great, which is usual for Nubar. 
These aren't really my taste, just because I tend to go for crazy, out there, colors more often than neutrals, but there are alot of women who cannot wear crazy shades and colors to work, or simply dont like them, so I definitely think it was nice, and smart, of Nubar to create this collection.

That's it for today my dears.  
I'll have many more reviews headed your way this week!

2 Thanksgiving Manis!

Well I found time to post these up real quick!  YAY!

Here's a easy layered mani and a more complicated Konad mani!

First up...the easy peasy one!
This is 2 coats of China Glaze "Goin My Way?" topped with 1 coat of Sinful Colors "All About You"

Now...the more complicated one!
I did a similar one last year and loved it so much I just had to revamp it for this year!
I originally got this idea from the Gorgeous Nihrida....Her version is better!
I started with 1 coat of Nubar "Hot Yellow" topped with 1 coat of Sinful Colors"Tapping Nails"
I then stippled on China Glaze"Thunderbird", China Glaze"Goin my Way"", and Sinful Colors "Show me the Way" , using the tip of the brush that came with them!

That's it my Lovelies!!!

Hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving!

Good Morning Lovelies!

I had 2 Thanksgiving manis to share with you guys but due to many unforeseen events, I have not been able to edit the photos and get them up.  
I will do my best to slap them up quickly tonight, but I cant make any promises.

I still wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving though!

Our Jack Russell, Macy, hopes you have a great one too!

Just Checking In...

Hey guys!
I really need to apologize for my absence!  
On top of all the usual work craziness, I'm also ridiculously exhausted from last weeks efforts to make a race.  We wanted to run both cars, so it wound up meaning alot of time and energy and many nights of not much sleep.  I'm still tryin to recuperate from it all and can't seem to catch up.  Because of the exhaustion, I'm just in a "blah" mood and have been havign a hard time posting.  

I will do my best to get a review up tomorrow for everyone!

Thanks for your patience guys!
