Hello lovelies! Today I am sharing with you another UberChic Beauty stamping plate review! The theme for this new Uber Mini plate is Nautical, one of my favorite themes ever. If I could have my whole house nautical I would! For now though all the nautical things are going on my nails, and I'm loving it. This plate is packed with a great mixture of pretty, fun, and adorable images. Let's sea (haha) what I came up with!

I have been looking forward to this post and sharing with you the new Stardust Beauty May 2016 Releases. I am never disappointed by Drema's creations but these four seem to be extra unique and beautiful. Today's post is going to be a little picture heavy because I had to show the different dimensions and the details of these polishes. I keep trying to pick a favorite but I just can't, I am really smitten. I think you'll love them as much as I do!

Who's ready for week two of the ABC Challenge? I am! First off, I have to tell you how utterly annoyed I am at myself for forgetting something I had been planning on foreeeeever. Part of wanting to do the ABC Challenge was to do photos of hand poses in the American Sign Language alphabet (ASL interpreting is what I studied in college). I completely forgot to take photos for the first week, and only remembered after I removed my mani. Luckily I remember this time around, so here is the letter "B"! And it stands for...

Hey lovely ladies! I have a fantastic collection from a new-to-me brand, Celestial Cosmetics. The Valyrio Collection was created in collaboration with my fellow blogging buddy Christine of Serenity Nails, so of course I'm already a fan. I swooned over Christine's swatches when they were released and was so excited to try these polishes for myself! Let me tell you, there is not a dud in the bunch!
The Valyrio Collection was inspired by The Game of Thrones. You may have heard of it. As I'm not exactly a fan myself (sorry!) I will refer you to Christine's post here to tell you all about the inspiration.

Hello my lovelies! How are you all this fine day? Today's post features a single polish, Express Yourself, from the upcoming Pretty & Polished Icon Collection Part I. I feel like I haven't had just one polish in a post in a very long time, it feels a little refreshing. I recently won this beauty and just had to share it with you!

Hey there! Today I have a review of the UberChic Beauty Mini Uber Mat in black to share with you. My original Uber Mat is something I have used every day since I bought it and I can't live without it. Being such a fan, I was very interested in trying a mini and seeing if I liked it just as much. I wasn't sure if I really needed both, but now that I have the mini I've found so many uses for it!
The Mini Uber Mat measures 9"x 8". I've placed it over the original Uber Mat so you can see the size comparison. The original has ten nail templates, while the mini has twenty. The black mat is specifically designed for use with lighter polishes so they can be very visible.
The thing I love most about these mats is the multitude of uses. First off, I love to use it as a brainstorming tool. I'm not very good at drawing, so I don't keep my ideas in a sketchbook. So when I want to test out stamping images, color schemes, freehand art, etc, I do it all on the mat. Sometimes I get so many ideas at once that again, as an alternative to a sketchbook, I will leave the images that I like on the mat as a place holder to remember later.
These mini mats are especially useful for making decals. This is such a great alternative to doing something like a blobbicure or needle drag/dry marble straight on the nail when my success rate is about 50/50. While I wouldn't personally need all twenty templates for all of my nails, I will often fill them all up with decals and then I pick out my favorite ones. That way I'm not re-doing my nails until I get it right.
