Nail Art // Icy Polar Bear Stamping with Color Club and MoYou London

I feel like our winter here in Toronto keeps coming and going... One day it's -7°C and then next it's 12°C! What is going on! Well, theoretically it should be cold right now, so I'm just going to pretend we're having a real winter with the help of this cute winter mani. Polar bears and snow and ice and holo! Sounds like a fabulous winter to me. :)

Nail Art // Bonjour Says Ralph The Rabbit

Nail art featuring red nail polish and a rabbit water decal

I know I say this a fair bit, but these are hands-down my favourite nails in recent memory! They were so simple to do and I almost cried when I had to take them off. What was it that got me? Was it the perfect apple red base? The adorable mustachioed bunny? The font used for the wording? I don't know! But I love it! Ahhhh!

Want to see more and find out where I got the decals to put this look together? Check under the cut! (And yes, I have named him - meet Ralph!)

    Nail Art // Layered Stamping with MoYou London Hipster 07 Plate and Mundo de Unas

    Nail art featuring pink chevrons with blue birds stamped on top

    Yay, layered stamping! Pairing more than one stamping design is still tricky for me, but I think I did pretty good this time. :) It helps using multiple images from the same plate I think.

    In this case I used one of my new(er) MoYou London plates - Hipster 07. These birds and chevrons (Is that what you would call these? I kind of want to call them tire tracks, but I think they are also chevrons) pair perfectly, and this look also gave me the chance to play with some of my Mundo de Unas polishes. Hooray!

    Unboxing + Swatch // Julep It's Whipped Matte Lip Mousses from the December 2015 Maven Box

    * Referral Link

    Today we have a kind of a combination of post... It's both my review of the December 2015 Julep Maven Box and also a review of Julep's new Matte Lip Mousses! I chose to upgrade my box in December to get all 8 shades so there isn't anything else to look at in this box aside from the candy. But when I say "there isn't anything else" I also mean "there doesn't need to be anything else" as I am in love with each and every shade as well as the application of Julep's Matte Lip Mousse!
