Guest Post #5 - Ink&Polish

This next lady was one of the first followers I had on my blog. Shortly after I started my blog, she decided she needed to do so herself. Over the past few months, we've grown to be good friends. Making new, wonderful friends, is one of the many reasons I love having this blog. I give you Carrie of ink&polish!

This next post comes from a lady who never fails to make me laugh. I swear she's super woman or something! She's so busy, she actually typed up this post as she was pulled over at a rest stop. I told her she didn't have to cause things had gotten crazy, but she insisted! I give you Jenn at My Indie Glam Addiction.

Guest Post #2 - Stephanie

I have another guest post for you today. This time, Stephanie, one of my readers contacted me and asked if I would let her do a guest post. She's just a reader, and she wanted to know what it was like to do a blog post. I gladly accepted. She's an absolute doll, and if she wants to add a guest post here and there, I would love it! I love seeing what you guys think of polishes and seeing your manicures! You may not be a blogger, but your voice should be heard too!

NOTD - Barielle - Peach Popsicle

A couple Barielle sales ago, I decided to make my first purchase. I had been eyeing Falling Star and decided to jump in and grab a couple other colors as well. When they got here, Falling Star was the only polish that didn't have some discoloration or separation to it. They had me pick 3 more colors to replace the 3 I had issues with. I've decided to show you one of the replacement polishes today!

August Julep Maven box and Add Ons

I've finally decided to show off my Julep Maven box the way it should be. I don't know why I haven't done it this way before, and I'm sorry.

Once again, I got the It Girl box. I haven't been able to pull myself away from this box yet. The colors are always so much fun, and if I happen to want a color or two from different boxes... that's what the add ons are for! Right?! So, what was in my Julep Maven box this month?

Dusty Find - China Glaze Cat's Eye

This past weekend, we were trying to figure out something to do. We decided to just go walk around the mall. My daughter spotted the play area, but my eyes caught sight of a little nail salon tucked in the back corner. I told my husband, "You take her to play and I'm going to go poke around for a minute." One bottle caught my eye, but I didn't think twice about it because I wasn't sure about the actual color of the polish. The bottle caught my eye, not the polish. I wasn't sure the polish would translate well from the bottle onto the nail. So, I decided to look it up and check out some swatches when I got home. After looking at the swatches, I knew I wanted it! Maggie and I went back yesterday, I checked the consistency of the polish, checked the fill line and asked if they were willing to sell it. Sure enough, $5 it was mine! $5 for a practically full bottle! Not fantastic formula, but nothing a little thinner couldn't fix.

Tip Top Nails Review #1

**Product was sent to me for my honest review. All opinions are my own.**
I was recently contacted by Tip Top Nails to review some of their products. I gladly accepted. I'm always up for trying new polishes and seeing what all is out there. I'm a fan of their Facebook page and I haven't really been able to tell much about their products. They do a lot of tips and tricks and nail art on there. If you know me, you know I completely suck at it! So, with the amount of nail art contests they have on their page, I really wasn't sure what I was getting myself into with this review.

My Baby Shower "Pamper Me" Basket

I had a baby shower to go to a couple weeks ago. I wanted to do something a little different for her. I was a first time mom not that long ago (Maggie will be 3 in September), and I can speak from experience, that first time moms can sometimes get lost in their kids and everything that needs to be done and forget about themselves. We ALL need our me time. With a new baby, sometimes that is just hard to remember though. I got her 2 bottles of my favorite stain remover. It saved me from having to buy new down comforters and it gets the worst stains out of practically anything! But other than that, since I knew she'd be getting so much for the baby from everyone else, I wanted to do something for her. Something to remind her to take some time for herself when she can.

Maggie's Corner #10

Sorry there hasn't been a Maggie's Corner in a while. The munchkin decided to act up, and surprisingly enough, she's not even 3 and the only punishment that seemed to work was taking away her nail polish. Who knew that'd end up having to be a punishment in this house. (I hope my husband doesn't get any ideas! lol) But now, she has her polish back and all is well. :o)

I know what you're thinking... "How could this angel ever get in trouble?"

July Nail Mail and Hauls

I've decided to start doing one nail mail/haul post at the end of each month instead of several throughout each month. We'll try it out for a couple months and see how I like it. So now, onto the goodies!!
