Bundle Monster - 20 Piece Nail Art Design Tools: Review and Nail Art

Hello, all! I've got a review of a very popular Bundle Monster brush set to share with you all today! When you first start getting serious about nail art, one of the most exciting purchases is your first set of nail art brushes! My first set of nail art brushes seriously opened up my nail art world. Until brushes, I had been using striping tape or fumbling my way through using toothpicks...and while there is nothing wrong with using those tools, they are definitely limiting. 

The first brush set I owned actually looked very similar to the Bundle Monster brush set shown here, though the one I purchased was a super cheap version that took the long boat from China to get here. I remember spending a good amount of time comparing the two sets online, but since I was just starting out and already spending too much on nail polish, I settled on the cheaper set of brushes over the pricier Bundle Monster set. So, my review today has my experience with that original set in mind; basically, I wanted to see if the BM set was worth the price tag. 

Barielle - Jetsetter Fall Collection: Swatches & Nail Art

Press Sample

Hello, all! I've got another great collection from Barielle to share with you today! I'm really excited about some of the shades in this collection and think the colors as a whole look wonderful together. Let me know what you think about this as a fall collection - I personnally quite like it! If you missed it, I posted Barielle's other Fall collection, the Me Couture collection, a few weeks back and was so in love with that one. I'm excited that they've got two great fall collections to choose from!

31 Day Challenge, Day 11 - Floral: Abstract Flower Nail Art

Nothing to Disclose

Hello, all! I'm FINALLY getting back into doing some posts for the 31 Day Challenge! Aren't you excited? ;) The next theme in the challenge is 'floral' so naturally, I'm excited about it. Surprisingly, I haven't done much nail art in the past few weeks (aside from the occasional swatching nail art), so it felt good to sit down and work on tonight's look...and, as I'm sure most of you know by now, floral is my favorite thing to paint so it was just an all around nice mani to do :)
