Lace & Lacquers' Manicure Favorites

Pin It I thought I was the queen of planning blog posts after successfully planning posts for 2 trips! But stupid me ran out of posts and swatches for this week. WOMP WOMP WOMP! Good thing I have a back up. So without further adieu...

I've received a few messages, comments, posts asking what my favorite products are. You might have the same question, but you might not of seen the posts! So, I decided to do a quick lil' write up.


Favorite Top Coat: Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat by Seche (No I don't experience shrinkage. I keep my bottle full with Seche, add thinner to it frequently and seal my tips. VoilĂ ! No shrinkage.)
(Runner Up: Out The Door Fast Drying Top Coat By INM)



Favorite Base Coat: Stuck Up Base Coat by You Polish (I have a review, here!)


Favorite Nail File: Purifiles Disinfectable Files #2109 Green Core 100/180 grit by Flowery (I buy mine at Sally's Beauty Supply - they don't have them on their website :( I probably own like 15 LOL)
Favorite Nail Strengthener: Rejuvacote by Duri Cosmetics



Favorite Cuticle Balm  Cuticle Butter (any scent) by Fortune Cookie Soap Company
(Runner Up: Sunny's Miracle Balm (any scent) by 365 Days of Color)
"Honey Dew Me" Cuticle ButterSunny's miracle balm

Favorite Hand Lotion: Skin So Soft Firm & Restore Age-Defying Corrective Hand Treatment by Avon (When I need something thicker: Stassels' Moisturizing Beeswax Salve by Julie Siemek - I've been using this forever!!)

beeswaxsalve.com

Favorite Polish Remover: Remove Plus Nail Polish Remover by Zoya (I use pure acetone for clean up.)
Zoya Remove in Big Flipper polish remover nail polish remover  ZTBF02    professional nail care treatments  beauty supplies

Favorite Clean Up Brush: Concealer Brush by E.L.F.

Favorite Nail Stamper: Squishy Double Ended Stamper - I got mine off eBay for less than $3 from overseas. Any of the stampers that look similar to Winstonia's version is the same! (I use an old credit/gift card as a scraper).


Favorite Nail Stamping Plates: Cheeky and Bundle Monster branded plates. (I prefer them over the original Konad plates.)


Hope this helps some of you find new products! :] Did I miss anything? Just ask/let me know and I'll add it to the list.

Sinful Colors Anemone and Born Pretty Store water slide decals

Hey there, stranger! Today I have two product reviews in one post, reviewception? I recieved Sinful Colors Anemone from PINCHme and some cute bow water slide decals from Born Pretty Store to review for ya'll. Check out what I think below :]

Sinful Colors Anemone

Sinful Colors Anemone
Sinful Colors Anemone is an orange coral creme polish. Funny thing is, I wanted this polish and I probably put it down 2-3 times at Walgreens! Soooo I'm happy I received it to review. This color is awesome, fun, bright and perfect for summer.

I know not everyone is a fan of Sinful Colors but I love to work with these polishes. Their formulas are usually pretty great and I love using them for undies and in nail art :] For $2, these polishes always exceed my expectations. I did 2 coats of Anemone. I had no issues with application or dry time. I wore it for 3 days (with Seche Vite) and I had 0 tip wear.

I decided to add one of the bow water slide decals from Born Pretty Store. The blue bow looked great against the bright polish. I added some yellow and blue polka dots to compliment the bow on my accent nail. I think it came out pretty freakin' cute! :] What do you think?

Like the bows? You can find them here! They're usually $2.86 but they're currently on sale for 25% off at $2.15 a sheet. If you're interested in how to apply water slide decals from Born Pretty Store check out my previous post - here.

You can also get a 10% discount using my discount code, LACJ61, and Born Pretty Store always offers FREE shipping!


If you're interested in PINCHme, the program I got the Sinful Colors polish through, you can sign up here! They have a lot of different samples to try, and they go fast... so you gotta act quick! This program is not for bloggers only, btw :]

Have an awesome weekend!
