Jessica Iridescent Eye & Bundle Monster Stamping


Hi everyone!

Today I have some stamping to show you.

Last night I painted my nails with a newly acquired polish, Iridescent Eye by Jessica.
I believe its a dupe for Chanel Peridot, or at least, close enough.
I really love the colour, which is multi-chromatic showing gold, green and blues.
However, once I had it on my nails, I thought it looked a little plain, and the boyfriend agreed!
Despite it nearly being time for bed, I whipped out the stamping polish and sifted through all my plates.

I chose this plate from the new 2012 Bundle Monster set, I believe it is plate 312.

I tried to capture the colour shift in the polish, but it wasn't easy! Straight on, the colour looks greenish gold me me, with hints of copper in the middle of the nail.

On other angles, the edges lean to a darker blue colour.

On extreme angles, a lot more of the blue colour is visible!











I also recently added some cute puzzle stamps to a recent manicure, using a blue Sally Hansen chrome polish.



Orly Sweet Peacock, one of my all time favourite colours!


Some new brooches from Yippy Whippy and two OCC Lip Tars in Vintage and Katricia, I can't wait to try them out!

And I baked pink love heart cookies :3


And a Pokemon Ditto cookie for my boyfriend!



Until next time,

Sam

Stamping Nails!

Hi everyone!

 Today I have a few nails from the past week to show you!


 I received my 2012 Bundle Monster plates in the mail recently, and I really love them! I've been getting back into stamping and have been having a blast :)

This was the first mani I did using the plates. The base is OPI Ink, the barbed wire was stamped with China Glaze Millennium and the roses with OPI An Affair in Red Square. It looked amazing in person, it was hard to photograph!
 



Next up I used another plate to do this cute design. The base is A England Order of the Garter, stamped with a Sally Hansen pink chrome polish. I have 4 of these old chromes and I love them all for stamping! 
 



 Here is another stamping adventure that I really enjoyed! Its Sinful Colors Forget Now and a bundlemonster stamp in Konad Black. I love the sparkles in this pink!
 



Here is my Saturday night mani, even though I didn't go out and was just home alone!
Its a base of Essence - Hazelnut Cream Pie, a nude that matches my skin tone great, with a subtle pink shimmer. The accent nail is China Glaze Aquadelic. The glitter is my top fave polish, Butter London Tart with a Heart. I love the iridescent glitter, and the fine black glitter in it too! <3 <3 <3



This is my current mani done late last night, so no stamping. I just wanted to get something on my nails and then go to bed! It is a coat of black, and two coats of Misa Caravan Chic! So pretty, I love the depth the black adds to this polish. I would still like to try this over a similar base colour, I think its too sheer to wear alone, you would need too many coats.




And now some other random photos from the weekend!

Makeup and brown contacts I wore last night to visit my parents for dinner. Eyeshadow is Sugarpill Acidberry and lipstick is Lime Crime Centrifuschia
 




I just ordered this shirt, I hope it fits!
Saturday night watching tv, one of my cats fell asleep with his paw on my shoulder. Awwww, Fatty <3

Trying to get a good photo of my green contact lenses, and my boyfriend photobombing! I'm trying not to laugh in this photo




My outfit last night to visit my parents. The jumper is actually more of a lime green, not yellow but my phone camera couldn't handle it! Also all my lipstick has rubbed off here. This photo was taken in my old bedroom, since moving out they have turned it into a second lounge room!




And that is it for today!

I got my new green and brown contact lenses in the mail this week so I look forward to doing a review soon!
I'm going out this weekend, so I plan to do something cool for my Friday the 13th nails!

Until next time,
Sam :)

Cute Kitty Animal Onesie!

Hi everyone!

Today I'm showing you my most recent purchase, this super cute Cat Onesie!

My friend came over on Saturday night and he was telling us how his sister had a retail store opening the next day and we should come along.

After seeing some pictures of the super cool costumes she had for sale, we were sold!

The store is called 'I Can Say I've Seen It' and it is located at 33 Johnston St, Collingwood, Victoria, Australia.



As well a a really big selection of onesies, she also sells lots of cute and funny knick knacks, like bacon shaped bandaids, wallets that look like toast... the list goes on!

Some of the other designs I saw in stock in the costumes were, bat, shark, pink or blue (and white) unicorns, bears... plus some licensed ones including, The Cheshire Cat, Stitch and Jack Skellington.

Some of the costumes were made of a thinner towelling type material, others were made of a thicker polar fleece.

My cat outfit is a polar fleece one!


So why would you buy one of these? Well, I recently moved out of home and away from our lovely central heating. Our current house gets REALLY DAMN COLD in winter (its winter right now here in Australia) and this onesie keeps me SUPER WARM. I find it especially comfortable with a pair of leggings on underneath, plus it IS super cute. They would also be great for parties, Halloween, to wear to outdoor festivals to keep warm or even as a cosplay?

The quality is really good, the buttons are all securely attached and the stitching is great.
The polar fleece feels like good quality too. It has elasticated arm and feet holes, and the hood is a good size, especially for my huge head!

These cost AU $75 dollars, and the licensed ones are AU $85 dollars, not a cheap purchase, but for me, it is worth it to keep warm, and it ends up being cheaper if we don't have to turn on the heater!

A friend told me you can buy these in Japan and you would be looking at around AU $45 dollars, however, then you must factor in postage (or travelling to Japan o__O), plus I enjoyed supporting my friends sister.

Overall, I really love it and do not regret buying it! My boyfriend also loves it and can't stop telling me how cute I look in it (awwww), he also really wants one so we should be heading back soon so he can pick up a skeleton one!


My cats were impressed with the costume ^__^
