Technorati !

Excited that I'm almost there to completing my claims process for Technorati.

To keep this somewhat beauty related, I shall now proclaim my love for Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Clearly Quick. I put it over my contest manicure and I've been wearing it since then with very little tip wear. The hand drawn toothpick work took so long, I haven't really wanted to take it off!

My claims code is Q782DCXBQHRD

That is all!

Miss DeVious DiVa Likes Rebecca Likes Nails

Hey guys, the title there pretty much speaks for itself. I've been a fan of Rebecca's nail art since Emerald Sparkled featured her on her site with her polka dot hearts mani ummm a year ago? I don't even remember haha.

I didn't really want to take off my Hunger Games mani but it started chipping and the glitter was coming off. AND I kinda HAD to enter this contest. HAD TO. Just because of the 5 themes of the contest, because I love all 5 of those too.

I based part of it off a mani that I remember Rebecca did based on a pink and silver dress she found on Pinterest. That's where that came in, and I decided to do a sideways gradient. I stamped the animal print and I did the Hello Kittys & the bows by hand with a toothpick.

Here's my left hand:

Right hand:

 Right thumb:

I used:
China Glaze - Millennium (base on pointer, middle, & pinky fingers)
Sinful Colors - Bianca (part of gradient, base on thumb & ring fingers, Hello Kitty's nose & bow)
Pure Ice - Crush (part of gradient, bow on thumb & ring fingers)
Claire's - Snow Ball (Hello Kitty's head, outline on bow)
Konad M57
Wet N' Wild Wild Shine - Black Creme (animal print stamping,  Hello Kitty's eyes & whiskers)

I hope you guys like it! It's been a rainy day out here in Cali so there wasn't any sun to take pics in. Good luck to everyone entering the contest!

Happy Hunger Games! Part 2.

Here's my FOTD and OOTD. I used to have a black skirt that had flames on it but I couldn't find it. I think it got donated. This would've been the perfect occasion to wear it, right? I pulled this red patchwork skirt out since it went along with the colors I wanted to use for my eye makeup. The necklace, from Love Culture, complimented it since it has a big silver arrow on it. Hunger Games fans will get that reference.

Outside the theater, it was so windy!

For my eyeshadow, I knew I wanted to do flame colors but not like INYOURFACEBRIGHT! colors, so I went with a black smoky eye and did the flame colors in the crease.

With flash the sparkles lit up!

I knew I wanted to use a gold eyeliner as a nod to Cinna. I love Cinna. So I busted out my Milani gold eyeliner. It wouldn't have looked as good over the black on my top lid so I used it on my lower lid.

I used:
M.A.C Blacktrack Fluidline as base & liner
M.A.C Carbon eyeshadow
M.A.C Fab & Flashy eyeshadow
Bloody Mary Red eyeshadow
M.A.C Retrospeck eyeshadow
Milani Gold Liquif'eye 03 Gold eyeliner
Hard Candy Carbon Black Ginormous Lash Mascara

Oh and about that Hunger Games rap? HERE IT IS! Come for the punchlines, stay for the Peeta meme at the end!

Happy Hunger Games! Part 1.

Hey guys! On Friday I went to go see The Hunger Games with my cousin. Earlier this month I read the first book, gave it to my cousin, got her into it and she decided we needed to go see the movie lol. By the time the movie opened, both of us had already read all 3 books. It was so much fun! I'm glad she made plans for us to see it. I've never gone to see a movie on opening day before, and it was funny hearing all the hardcore fans screaming, ooh-ing, ahh-ing, and aww-ing throughout it.

For my mani that day, I had to go with the stand-by: flames. The book even says Katniss has flames painted on her nails. If it's good enough for Katniss & Cinna, who am I to disagree?

I added red, orange and gold glitter to make it look like sparks flying. High five if you're now singing that Taylor Swift song in your head. There's a lot of pictures, with flash and without, and even some blurred to show off the sparkles. I just loved this manicure!

I used:
Wet N' Wild - Black Creme
For the base flames: L.A. Girl  Disco Brites - Psychedelic
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Mango Motion
Sinful Colors - Ruby Ruby
For the glitter: Love and Beauty - Red
Pumpkin Polishes Orange Glitter
Santee - Copper Kiss Glitter

Part 2 coming right up! I've got a FOTD, OOTD, andddd a Hunger Games rap video? Stay tuned!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Hey guys! For St. Patty's Day I decided to do a green mani using a bunch of my green polishes. I have wayyyy to many green polishes, I actually think it's the color I have most in my collection! Last St. Patrick's Day, I went to Walgreens to pick up Sinful Colors Green Ocean while they still had the display out, cause I love flakies (who doesn't though?). Then Irish Green is so pretty, I picked that up too. Then Happy Ending is so pretty, and once I saw the name, I had to get it for the name alone! Then I saw Nail Junkie and grabbed that too. I think they were having the 99 Cent sale on Sinful Colors back then.

 I wanted to do a gradient and then paint shamrocks on every nail but the gradient looked so cool that I decided to just do the thumb and an accent nail with a shamrock. I like it!

 I used:
Sinful Colors - Happy Ending
Sinful Colors - Irish Green
Sinful Colors - Green Ocean
Sinful Colors - Nail Junkie
Snowman polishes green shimmer (for the shamrocks)
