I haven't done fake nails in a LONG time, I mean LONG!! It's been at least 3 years, and even then I always used acrylic nails. This Saturday I decided to give press on nails a chance, I figured I would only be out for a few hours & I could give these a good trial run then.


The nails I decided to try are:
I received these nails in one of the My Pretty Pink boxes a few months back. Here's what they looked like on me. I have to admit that there were some bubbles, but this is pretty easy to prevent if you follow the directions carefully.


For me the nails did they're job & lasted for 2 days, I soaked them off after that. I'm sorry I just can't do the fake nail thing anymore, just not me. I will be using these nails again for special occasions though. It's a quick fix & it lets you go about your getting ready routine, unlike when you paint your nails & you have to wait for them to dry before you can do anything.

MAC Baby Girl Goth Nail Lacquer & Johnson's Melt Away Stress Lotion
I've never tried this lotion before & I don't know why. I adore it! It has such a soft pretty smell & I can see how it melts away the stress!! It's such a relaxing smell.This MAC polish is a crazy color!! The color looks completely different depending on the lighting. In some lighting it looks exactly like the bottle above, in other lighting it seems to have bronze/burgundy chips on paint inside of the polish. I've also noticed that this color can also look like OPI Lincoln Park After Dark, but prettier. I really don't know how to explain the color too well, but it is love!!!


I tried to capture the other flecks of color in this polish, but it just didn't show up so you have to take my word for it. =P

Thank you Vanessa!!! <3>

  2. I was thinking about getting that MAC polish. But I have such a love hate relationship with them. Is like 5 minutes after putting it on, it chips.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
