Red and Gold...

Hello everyone!  I hope you are doing well!  I have another review from the wonderful KkCenterHK for you today.  I am in love with every item I have tried from this company.  They have amazingly cheap prices and the quality is awesome!  So go ahead and go look!

Mani Ingredients
Base colors-China Glaze Winter Berry and Zoya Tomoko
Water Decals-KkCenterHK
Top coat-Seche Vite

I think this is a very sexy mani!  I love red with cheetah print.  I should have found a way to add in some fishnet.  I have decided to start putting more into these simple mani's I do.  I have seen some beautiful things floating around the nail art world!  I will not be doing much free hand but I do want to do some advanced stamping and stamping and decaling together.  I am so glad to have some days off for the holiday's to just be.  I probably will not be doing much nail painting on my own nails but I am sure my family will want their nails done.  I purchased a book almost a year ago on my Kindle and I plan to finally read it!  I am starting to really miss my reading.  Don't forget to use code "manisbymoore" to get 10% off your order!

Have you tried any advanced stamping techniques??  Or mixed stamping with water decaling??  Thanks for stopping by!

Pink and Brown...

Hey everyone!  I hope you are doing well!  Sorry but no Matte Monday today.  I didn't get a chance to take pictures of the mani so I will pick it back up next Monday.  Today I have a super cute mani for you as usual.  It is also a review for some beautiful bronze studs from KkCenterHK!  I was so happy when I got them in the mail!  I have been wanting some bronze studs and actually I have never seen them before I got these!  I would also love some bronze square studs.  I didn't see any on the website but hopefully they will get some soon.

Mani Ingredients
Base colors-China Glaze IV and Spoiled Cougar Attack
Image plates-MoYou Princess Collection 08, Konad m85 and Vivid Lacquer VL 009
Stamping polish-Revlon Espresso
Top coat-Seche Vite

I love this color combo!  This pink is such a beautiful color!  I am a bit obsessed and have to fight off grabbing it every time I want to wear pink.   I love how pale it is.  It looks squishy like a jelly to me.  It has these brownish undertones to it and looks all natural.  I just love it!  This is definitely one of those I never want to take it off mani's!  Don't forget you can get 10% off by using code "manisbymoore".

Have you ordered from KkCenterHk yet??  Thanks for stopping by!

Matte Monday: Interview Nude...

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend!  We celebrated my birthday this weekend by doing our yearly ritual by going out to eat with our cousins.  We had such a good time!  We haven't seen them in quite some time so it was even more special to see them and their girls.  I had an interview today so I needed to do something less loud for today.  I was feeling like using some glitter today though.  Let's see what I came up with...

Mani Ingredients
Base color-Sally Hansen Soy Latte
Glitter-Color Club Gingerbread
Stamping polish-Kleancolor Black
Image plate-Gals GA29
Top coats-Seche Vite and OPI Matte Top Coat

I love this!  Not as subtle as I would have liked it to be for an interview but hey I am a glitter girl no since in hiding it!  I must say I had a super hard time matting this mani.  I loved the look of the shine!  I think neutrals, pastel's and near black colors are the most beautiful when they are matte.  This Soy Latte polish is no exception.  I picked it up at a store called Citi Trends for $1.99!  I purchased every Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure color they had!  Two were nudes.

What color would you wear on your nails to an interview??  Would you wear glitter??  Thanks for stopping by!

Holo Mermaid Tail...

Hello everyone!  Sorry I kind of fell off the earth this week.  I have been so super busy.  I am sorry for neglecting my blog but I am getting it together!  I am revisiting the mermaid mani today.  I tried the mermaid mani for the Princess Challenge.  I said I wanted to try it with a green color and today is the day!

Mani Ingredients
Base color- China Glaze Deviantly Daring
Sponged holo- Kleancolor Holo Chrome
Stamping plate-Mash 39
Stamping polish- China Glaze Passion
Top coat- Seche Vite

I wanted to matte this so bad but it looked horrible.  I only matted two fingers before I changed my mind.  All the holo goodness was lost when the matte top coat was applied.  So glossy it was!  I think I like this color combo more than the first one I did.  The China Glaze polish is yet another untried.  I love it though!  Very pretty polish.

Stay tuned the next few days I will have a small giveaway.  Not sure how I will do it yet so any ideas will be appreciated.  I will not label it giveaway in the title line it will just be with a mani.  I am still deciding on what to add with it.  I can say the new Konad plate m100 will be in the giveaway.  I purchased two when I purchase mine and I will share with you guys!  I have quite a few polishes I love that I want to share as well!

What are your favorite colors for mermaid tail manis??  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Matte Monday: Movember...

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all doing great!  I had a great weekend!  Saturday I turned 30 years old!  I can't believe it!  I woke up to cupcakes in the shape of 30.  I love cupcakes!!  The hubby did a great job!  He also cooked me burgers!  They were so good!

Mani Ingredients
Base colors-Color Club Take Me to Your Chateau and Orly Angel Eyes
Stamping polish-Kleancolor Black
Image plate-Winstonia W109
Top coat-Seche Vite and OPI Matte Top Coat

I love this!  I should have researched the colors of Prostate cancer.  I was feeling like putting some blue on my nails though.  If you want a short general overview of what Movember is all about click here.  I have a cousin that went through treatment and is now cancer free!  I must say I am new to this type of cancer but I have learned a lot recently about this disease.

Do you know what the colors are for prostate cancer??  Thanks for stopping by!
