For my last Artsy Wednesday, I used Rimmel Mintilicious as the base and stamped flowers using Bundle Monster stamping plate BM02 and Wet n Wild Black Creme.

I think this is a fair representation of why it's time for Artsy Wednesday to end. While it was fun to have the challenges, sometimes I just wanted to do nail art that didn't have to do with the challenges, and doing my nails every 2 weeks was kind of hard. I also have been getting busier, hence why this picture is so awful: it's just one I took on my phone.

Happy Easter everyone!

I did a jelly sandwich with Loreal Sheer Pink and Revlon Stunning. I wish the glitter was more visible. :(

To celebrate April Fool's, we're posting joke manis today. I'm posting an ordinary French manicure:

Maybe I have a weird sense of humor that no one will get, it is!

ARTSY WEDNESDAY: Inspired by a tutorial

I decided to try a Saran Wrap mani this week. It was inspired by this tutorial from Nailed It. I LOVE the graphic she made for the tutorial!

For my version, I used Sephora by O.P.I Havana Dreams and Maybelline Sapphire Siren. I mattified the look using Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat. [I LOVE this top coat and highly recommend it!!!] I painted a layer of Havana Dreams first, and once it dried, I painted a coat of Sapphire Siren on top and dabbed the wet nail polish with Saran Wrap. The great part about this is that if you don't like how it looks when you dab off some nail polish, you can just add more and try again! :)

ARTSY WEDNESDAY: Neutral nails

This week's theme was neutral. My nails were inspired by the Maybelline "Dare to Go Nude" ad:

I was short on time, so I did not have as much time to do and photograph my nails as I normally like. :(

I used Sally Hansen Big Money for the gold base and NYC Prospect Park Bloom on top.

ARTSY WEDNESDAY: Inspired by a song

I saw Frozen a few months ago, and I couldn't get the song "Let It Go" out of my head. Here's a video of the song from YouTube:

Here are the nails I did:

I did the gradient using Sally Hansen Pacific Blue and sponged on Rimmel 60-Second Nail Polish in Mintilicious. I then topped them with a coat of China Glaze Luxe and Lush.

SWATCH & REVIEW: MAC Diva lipstick

It's still winter, and so dark red, vampy lip colors are still going strong. My favorite is MAC Diva:

Diva is a very vampy dark, burgundy red on lighter skin tones, but on mine, it just looks like a very solid, "pin-up" dark red. I wore it for 6 hours with eating and it stayed in place well. It looked great in post-meal pictures!

I love this color! It's pigmented and, because it is matte, there is very little transfer. Of course, because this lipstick is matte, you have to exfoliate before using the lipstick, and this lipstick can be drying.
