For Sale!

✯ PR Samples Mentioned ✯

I've listed some things on eBay! My 1 year old Sony Cybershot W690, Kodak Digital Picture Frame, Enchanted Polish, Coach Purses, Ed Hardy Hoodies, Claire's Tote. (USA Only).

Check out my items for sale -----> HERE!

I upgraded my Sony Cybershot, so that's part of the reason I'm selling some things (to pay off the $125 on my credit card). I upgraded to the W-830 So I jumped from 16mp to 20mp. :-) The only thing I'm not thrilled about with the new camera is that the body is all plastic now, no metal. So god forbid I drop this new one, it'll break for sure! :-\

Hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things with blogging soon... I've been a blogging slump and a bit depressed lately. But... I have these awesome polishes that Rimmel sent me, to share with you next week. I hope to try out some stamping with them too, and I will share my results.

Press Release: Zoya Macial PixieDust: Summer 2014!

Three great new shades for summer time! 
Ario, Ginni & Bar. They will retail for $10.00 each. 

Available for Pre-order on April 17th, 2014! 

(Product will ship in early May).

What do you think of the new colors for summer? I'm excited to see purple, but I feel like having pink is just a repeat of the 1st set of Magical Pixiedusts. (Lux was pink). Bar does look pretty it reminds me of sand, but I'm not wowed by it. I'll have to see it on person. :-)

KBShimmer Polishes!

I recently picked up a few of KB Shimmer polishes and a sugar scrub.

When I got my order I was accidentally sent the wrong polish at first. (When The Doves Sigh was missing). I contacted KB Shimmer's customer service and got a reply back immediately saying they were so sorry for the mix up. They sent the correct polish out and I got it within 3 days. They definitely have amazing customer service!

I got the Relaxation sugar scrub. I really love the scent of this one. It's got a spicy musky cologne scent. It's really nice. I use it on my hands in between swatching to moisturize and exfoliate. (I ordered the soap in this scent the other night, can't wait to try it).

This is The Grape Beyond, a really pretty purple matte with blue shimmer. It's hard to see the blue shimmer when it's matte, but you can when you use a topcoat- (though not so much in my photo below, you can see it more in person). I used 3 coats here.

And then I decided to stamp over it with my Emily de Molly plate EDM05 & Sally Hansen Lively Lilac. Loved this combo!

I've been wanting When The Doves Sigh for the longest time. It's a gray crelly with different glitters. A topcoat is a must with these types of polishes or else you'll look like you have bumpy concrete on your nails. A topcoat brings out all the beautiful glitters and smooths everything out. Love this polish! I used 3 coats.

And yes... I forgot to swatch Would You Jubilee It. I plan to swatch it in another post when my next KB Shimmer order arrives. I ordered Laugh Myself Lily and some other goodies!

Oh and here's a sneak peek at some ILNP Boutique polishes I picked up. Will share these soon! Cutie Pop, Charmingly Purple, Music Box & My Private Rainbow.

Instagram Nails!

I have not scheduled any other posts this week... I know... I'm a bad blogger. I ended up spraining my middle finger the weekend before, and it's still bothering me. I have plenty of pictures taken, I just haven't gotten around to editing them.

Look... I'm a Cyborg...

There's also been a lot going on personally besides my finger... I had a co-worker pass away on the 28th (I worked with her for 6 years), my Mom is healing from kidney stone surgery, my cousin had a carbon monoxide scare at her job, my grandmother is in the hospital in ICU and is not doing well. And some other little personal issues, so I'm just feeling a bit burnt out. Could use your well wishes & prayers.

I do have super awesome pictures of all these mani's from my real camera, when I get around to editing them... but I thought I'd share them in their natural light Instagram shots for now. You can follow me on Instagram at @tunaynamahal82

I am wearing this mani this week! It's 2 coats of Royals by Bsquared Lacquer. Which is a blurple jelly with holo glitter, and I stamped with Emily De Molly plate EDM03. This plate is too awesome! I love it! I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Silver Sweep to stamp the design.

Another week I wore KB Shimmer The Grape Beyond, stamped with Sally Hansen Lively Lilac with EDM plate EDM05

And some pretty spring nails with Above The Curve: Peeps, Love, & Happiness. Stamped with EDM05, Konad white.

P.S. Here's the real camera version of the first photo!

Matching Chevron's!

I got a new case for my Samsung Galaxy SIII. Aqua & Chevron's! I ordered it online on from a store called Heartstore. The only thing I didn't realize was that it ships from China, so it took two long weeks to get here. But it was cheap & it's pretty cute. (They have plenty of similar chevron ones for different phones).

Since I also own a Chevron stamp plate from Messy Mansion. I thought I would do matching nails! I used China Glaze For Audrey & white Konad stamp polish, with my MM12 plate, and Seche Vite topcoat. :-)

Enchanted Polish: Feb 2014.

I was so excited I was able to grab an Enchanted Polish during the February pre-order! I have to admit though, I was a bit nervous because it was a mystery color and EP is not cheap. Luckily February 2014 turned out to be a very pretty mauve berry colored holographic polish.

This is my very 1st Enchanted Polish so I don't know if this is the norm for them, but I found the formula very thick. So thick that when I would try to swipe it on my nail it would drag and clump before it reached my nail tip. I ended up getting so frustrated I added thinner to my bottle so it would apply better. It's a stunning color but if all EP formulas are like that, I don't think I want to pay $15 a bottle for them...

I decided to put one coat of Indigo Bananas 2% Butterscotch Ripple over my Enchanted Polish... it was so much prettier in person! Really awesome combo!

10 Year Anniversary!

My husband & I first started dating 10 years ago today! Yes... on April Fool's Day... lol! 04/01/2004. I can't believe it's been a decade already.... absolutely crazy...

I've cataloged our relationship over the years on my blog so check out: Our Time Line.

And, since I'm feeling nostalgic today, here's a preview of our Mahal Mix Tape. (Song preview links on Amazon).

P.S. I'm a bit incapacitated this week... I somehow strained/sprained my middle finger using the touch pad on my laptop while editing photos... it's extremely painful and my knuckle is all swollen. Never had this happen. :-( I still have quite a few photo's I need to edit, but I don't have many blog posts scheduled. Blah... but don't worry, there will be another nail polish post up on Thursday... Enchanted Polish... so stay tuned! :-)
