ORLY Cosmic FX Collection

Today I have the Orly's Cosmic FX collection. This collection is freaking AMAZING. That's all I have to say. But it is by far the hardest collection to capture in picture. These have to be seen in person to appreciate the beauty. And I'm sure majority of you already have these in hands? lol I'm just very late in posting these. But I've tried my best

Below: Space Cadet. It is a brown, green, purple duo-chrome. Very strong duo-chrome. My first picture is in natural lights and shows the duo-chrome at its best. Second picture is in an angle to show the green. And third picture is in artificial light which shows the brownish purple. And last picture is in direct sunlight.

Below: Galaxy Girl. It is a plumish purple with silver and turquoise blue flecks. First picture is under natural light which shows most of the colors. Second picture is in direct sunlight, and last picture is under artificial lights.

Below: Lunar Eclipse. A vibrant blue with silver flecks and slight purple/pink duo-chrome. First picture under artificial lights shows all the blue. Second picture in direct sunlight and last picture is natural light to show the slight pink and purple, which is barely noticeable in the picture.

Below: Halley's Comet. A turquoise with silver flecks. Very nice and shimmery, almost metallic like.

Below: It's Not Rocket Science. A swampy green with silver flecks. Yes, same as China Glaze Zombie Zest, and SpaRitual Optical Illusion. But I *feel* that this one is a brighter green.

Below: Out of This World. Vampy purple with silver and purple flecks.

Formula on these were perfect. All of them were done under three coats, though it was good with two. But I like it to have more depths to photo better and look better. I have a little more patience when it comes to my nails. I had no problems with application at all. No mess no fuss. My favorite is Space Cadet, Galaxy Girl, and Lunar Eclipse. The three duo-chromes in this collection, what do you know? Haha.

Well that's all I have for today, enjoy your weekend!

Short Wedding Dresses

Short Wedding Dresses - The Way of the Future!

Short Wedding Dresses are becoming all the rage. While many traditional brides love the long gown, there are some that really like the idea of a chic short gown. They are much cooler for a summer wedding. They often cost less to purchase or make due to less material needed.

Many brides opt for both so that they can wear the gown for the wedding ceremony and for the pictures and first part of the reception. The bride would then go and change into the shorter wedding dress to wear for the rest of the evening.

One thing to be sure of, is that if you are going with the wedding gown and the wedding dress, they should be similar in design, so that all of your accessories will match, and it will look better in pictures. This is a great idea, if you can afford to purchase or make both.

Shorter wedding dresses are not only more comfortable and less bulky, but they can look just as lovely as a full gown. They are great for a beach wedding where a heavy long gown would not fit in. A beautiful shorter, lightweight flowing gown would be a better choice.

Many brides just like the look of the shorter dress for them. There is a large selection of the short wedding dresses, and they are beautiful in style and fit. There are many options available that look just as a gown would in the bodice.

As long as you want the shorter dress, stick to your guns as there may be people to try to talk you into buying a gown. If this is a second wedding, the shorter length is very appropriate. If this is an informal wedding, then this is the way to go. You know what you want, and what looks good on you, and if short is your style then go for it.

Short wedding dresses are very stylish and many brides are choosing this option, it is in trend right now, maybe that is why more brides are choosing the shorter styles, or maybe it is that you have seen a short gown in a magazine that caught your eye.

The traditional long gown with the train is still the favored option for weddings. Many brides are not traditional and like to step out of the box in a fantastic short dress. Maybe this is what the groom likes as well. The point is that whatever type of dress you choose, this is your special day, and what you want goes.

The bridesmaids will like the shorter styles as often these can be used at other formal events, so they get more use out of them. This is true with your wedding dress as well depending on the style you might be able to wear your dress to another formal event. If you are a shoe girl the short dress will let you show off that awesome pair of wedding shoes that you chose to wear. Just listen to your heart, get what you want, and have a happy day.

Cute Nail Care Preparation

Cute Nail Care Preparation
Blended Glitter Nail Design

If you already take care of your hands and feet, you may only need to apply lotion before doing your nails. At a minimum, wash your hands or feet and apply lotion. After applying a moisturizing lotion, take a towel and rub it well across each nail. Also use the towel on your hands. This will remove any oils on your nails so the nail art stays in place when you apply it later. Next, you should trim your nails into the shape you want them for your nail designs. Usually, people follow the natural shape of their nails whether that is square, round, or triangular. A nail file can shape and trim your nails easily without removing too much of your nail.
