Color Club: Over the Moon - Cloud-Tipped Nails

Nail Art / Swatch & Review

   These weren't supposed to look like snowy, winter nails, I promise!  If you're having flashbacks to negative temperatures I give you my whole-hearted apology.  After wearing Color Club Over the Moon for a day and enjoying it's sunny-sky hue I thought puffy cloud tips would be pretty cute.  So I free-handed cloud tips using Zoya Purity.

Rainbow Showers: Monthly Mini Giveaway - Open Internationally Until 4/18!

   Ah spring, you wonderful season of renewed lawns and cheerful flowers, and expert dasher-of-hopes when you leave us wondering why snow keeps falling.  Where I live in the US I've seen some brave crocus flowers poking their stems up, but other than that most things are still brown.  And snowflakes were falling this morning, though it rained yesterday.  Rain.  April showers bring May flowers, they say.  I wondered how I could work an "April Showers" themed giveaway but there is a distinct lack of "rainy" nail art and make-up supplies.  So instead, I give you Rainbow Showers!

   I have to say I like this concept quite a lot.  Just looking at the mix of color up there makes me giddy!  You have teeny bags of colorful micro glitter, which you can either sprinkle on your nails or mix into a bowl to for dipping your nails in.  I made up a bag of color "drops" that coordinate, and they'll be great as accents!

   This image is a close-up and I don't want to misrepresent the size/amount of what you're entering to win.  So: the bags are about 1 inch across and the multicolor paillettes are only a few millimeters wide!  Definitely enough to do a full manicure, though.  =)

   This giveaway will run until April 18th at midnight.  Widget for entering is below, so keep reading!  Please click the "Terms and Conditions" link at the bottom of the Rafflecopter widget, that is where you will find the rules!  Thank-you!

March 2014 Recap

Influenster Prizes!  ·  Craft Projects  ·  Spring, is that you?

   Oops, it's already April!  I don't know exactly how it happened, but I haven't been the only one to say this: March went by just as quickly as February.  (Was it that way for you, too?)  Perhaps because it had the same cold, dreary blur that the days of February had.  I don't really know.  I do know that I was very disappointed 1 week ago when I realized how close April was.  Alas, now it is already here.  Let's see how I did this month.

March Goals
  • Finish stocking that last bit of nail polish on Storenvy!  (Ugh, I haven't even touched my destash pile this month...)
  • Build a light box?  (Not done, but I found the boxes!)
  • Polish my nails more often.
  • Feature some Influenster J'adore Box content!
   Not too bad, I guess we could call that 50-60% completed?  I left my list of goals pretty bare because I expected to be busy, and indeed I was.
