My KBShimmer Snow Way! Franken Dupe-Shenailigans DIY Saturdays

 So at the beginning of winter, the KBShimmer winter collection was released and I was like wow, I need Snow Way! But my wallet was getting kind of tired of spending so much on indie polishes at $8-9 a pop. Let's face it ladies, that is expensive when you want so many! I made this polish instead, and you can make it too! I will let you know everything you need to make this through out the post. as well, this covers in 2 coats unlike the 4 coat Snow Way!
This is made with Sinful Colors- Cinderella, and I added a bit of suspension base and a couple drops of  cyan blue to it.  I ordered some white glitter from TKB Trading and put that in there with a paper funnel I made. Pretty simple. I usually tip the glitter from the bag or use a tiny espresso spoon. Or you could order this mix from YouMix for $2 for a decent sample to avoid having to buy a bunch of white glitters, and there you have it!

 I'm going to start doing this every Saturday, remaking a popular polish that you could remake yourself, so stay tuned. This is probably one of the favorite frankens I have made, because It felt like I got a hot new polish for free because I had the supplies already.

What do you think? Are you going to try to make this for yourself? I love the addition of the duochrome flash from the shimmer in Cinderella.

 Happy nails!☺

My Boxing Day Picks From LUSH!

Hello Ladies!
I just wanted to show you what I got on boxing day!
First I got 2 of these guys from the LUSH boxing day sale:
 2 Wonderful Christmastimes! Be jealous. I'm jealous of myself! Haha. Here's what's in them:
The gift's contents tag
The gift is done on 3 layers stacked, and you pull on the handles in the middle to lift up each.
Top Layer
 Here's the top layer, we have the shower gels along with some other assorted stuff. This year's new shower gel, Ponce, I do not like it. It smell like straight up tequila, and come on, no one wants to wash with straight tequila haha! Maybe Ke$ha.
Layer one with layer 2, the goodies not dug out yet.
Second level! We have a lot of soap on this level, 2 bubble bars and a bath bomb.
 Here's the last level. We have 4 bath bombs and 2 bubble bar wands.
Group shot! So yeah, that times two. I love the LUSH boxing day sale every year, and always look forward to it. And every year the sales associates will tell you "oh, we aren't having that sale this year." To try to sell more product before Christmas. If I have a shopping tip for you for LUSH, it would just be to not believe everything they tell you, like most retail jobs, they are pushed really hard to sell. The products are great though, albeit a bit over-priced. The scents and fantastic and you can't get them anywhere else, so that's one of the main reasons I still shop there, they have been raising the prices lots the last few years.
My game plan at LUSH every year is just to stock up on the boxing day sale, I still have a few things left over from last year, so there's an idea I go with.  The sale goes till January 6th.

Don't you just love the LUSH bags and soap wrap this year? Super awesome and bright, like most LUSH things, haha!
I also picked up some regular line items I enjoy. I love me some LUSH rose and jasmine so that's mostly what these 2 gifts are. Rosie and Do Knot Disturb. I also got some of my favorite soaps, Rockstar, Sandstone and Sultana of Soap. Love me some LUSH soap!

Here is the Do Knot Disturb with it's menu!

The Contents!

The tag for the Rosie gift.
 What do you think of my haul? If you have been to LUSH before, what are your favorite items? Let me know in the comments!

Happy nails! awesome bath products!☺

China Glaze Tranzitions Modify Me- Changes With Topcoat

 Hello Ladies,
I have to show you the coolest polish ever! It is called Modify Me by China Glaze, and it changes color with top coat.

Modify Me-China Glaze with Zoya-Blaze
 This manicure was done with Modify Me, Seche Vite, and Zoya- Blaze.  It was 2 coats of Modify Me, one of Zoya Blaze. I found with this color changing polish, the more coats of a clear polish you put, the darker it gets.
If you peel off the clear polish, the color changing polish below is still periwinkle and not purple. somehow it reacts with the polishes you put on top to change them purple, and the color below stays the same. Weirdest thing ever! Makes for some easy nail art though!
Modify Me-China Glaze with Zoya-Blaze
On my thumb here, you can see how multiple coats of polish get darker, as on the x.
 I don't know how they do this, but it's probably the coolest thing ever.  I got both these colors from Here's all the things I ordered from them:

The Avojuice was a bonus item with the order, I've never tried it before now and it smells really nice. The Solstice Nail Colors are Cassis and St. Tropez. They look pretty promising, and the other color I got from Soulstice awhile ago was amazing, (Troy) was a scattered charcoal holographic and slick and shiny without topcoat. That never happens with a holographic polish!
 Well anyways, what do you think of these polishes? Will you pick up any Tranzitions? Let me know in the comments!
 I think I might want the pink one. The formula on this one is pretty with the shimmer as you paint it on, but you don't really see that in the polish when it dries, it's almost matte. It chipped on me second day, but a lot of polish does, and you can't really put a topcoat on this anyways haha. I do like the color it changes to, but I like the before color better.

Happy nails!☺
