Checkerboard Nail Art

{Purchased by Me}{Affiliate Link}

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope you are all doing well today. On Mondays, I usually wear black. You know…to mourn the weekend. So here’s a mani that fits with that motif.Glisten and Glow Mae from the December 2016 Holo Hookup box

I started with two coats of Glisten and Glow Mae from the December 2016 Holo Hookup box. I used Konad Black to stamp this checkboard-style design from an It Girl Nail Art Plate.

Time For Some Nail Art + Senegence Sunday Update

In this issue:

  • My janky nail
  • Even more team members! What?!
  • New milestone sales number

Today, I have some pretty lazy nail art for your viewing pleasure. I started with OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s (which is from the namesake collection) and simply used some Pueen Water Decals.

I know my crooked nail has been driving some people crazy. (I’m looking at you, smackerlacquer) but I promise it’s growing out and it will be a thing of the past soon. :) So just bear with me.

I’d like to welcome two more people to my amazing LipSense team! Deana and Jenny! That’s a total of 5 people on my team. We’re having a ton of fun and I love getting to know these girls better. Did you know…6 is my favorite number? Do you want to be my 6th team member???

Last week, I told you that my sales so far were at $4,500. Well, just in the last week, my total sales since I started tipped over $5,100. That’s another $600 in ONE week. (And I barely left my house!) Additionally, my commission check in February is going to be over $500 (so far!) Basically, commission checks from Senegence is money you get for doing jack-shit. I’m getting money for things I would be doing anyway and it’s super fucking weird. And awesome.

How can you get involved with the craziest lipstick sensation to ever enter our lives?

Blue and Purple Stamping

I did this mani a while ago…before my poor little nails broke. The base color is Color Club Belly Flop. I used Konad Light Blue to stamp this image from It Girl Nail Art IG103.

Blue Arrow Nail Art

I just found this draft post! It’s been sitting there, being ignored for months!!! Sorry blue nail art! I completely forgot about you. LOL. This mani used China Glaze Good Tide-ings which is from China Glaze’s 2016 holiday collection and was sent to me as a press sample.

The stamping polish is It Girl Sapphire and the plate is It Girl Plate IG 111. Make sure you check out Nicole’s It Girl Etsy shop this week. She’s restocking some plates and rumor has it that there might be some new ones in there, too! :O :O :O I’m really in the mood for some new stamping plates so I can’t wait!!!

I’ve started to get back into making YouTube videos and I would be honored if you’d follow me over there. I’m still working on getting better lighting and what not, but it would be fun to have you along for the journey!

Pretty Serious Mad Skill of Cloverton

{Press Sample}{Purchased by Me}

Hello, hello! Today’s mani starts with a gorgeous concoction from Pretty Serious. This pink duochrome is Pretty Serious Mad Skill of Cloverton and I freaking love it. I almost didn’t even put a design on top of it because the polish itself is a work of art.

But…I did put nail art on top. LOL. I used It Girl Plate 302 and Mundo de Unas Red Wine to create the below look.

At the request of one of my downlines, I made a video showing all the Senegence makeup products I use on a daily basis. I’m certainly no makeup artist, but here’s my usual routine.

Silver Snowflake Nail Art

{Press Sample}{Purchased by Me}

We’ve been having quite the cold snap here in Western Washington. This morning, the radar says we’re supposed to have freezing rain. I haven’t had to sit in my car to warm it up since I lived in Park City!!! So how about some more snowflake nail art to enjoy? I started with two coats of Pretty Serious Strigiformes which is a dark evergreen jelly polish. This guy was sent to me as a press sample by the lovely Kaz from Pretty Serious.

For stamping, I used Bundle Monster Silver. This isn’t my favorite stamping polish line, but it is the only one I have in silver. So, I just had to deal with that little first world problem. The snowflakes are from the It Girl Holiday stamping plates

Here is a plain swatch of Pretty Serious Strigiformes.pretty-serious-strigiformes

And in LipSense news…..

Announcing the new LipSense diamond collection!!! I am freakishly excited about these. Email me at bettysbeautybombs at gmail dot come to get on the pre-order list for these. I should have them in about a week!

Leopard Print Nail Stamping

{Purchased by Me}{Press Sample}

In the mood for some silly nail art? Well, you’ve come to the right place. LOL Today’s mani starts with OPI I Believe in Manicures. (I actually hate the formula for this polish. You can read about that here.) For the stamping polish, I used Mundo de Unas Iris and the leopard print is from an It Girl Stamping Plate.

In case any of you are still wondering about my ring finger… If I’m feeling sassy, I tell people it’s my signature look and/or it’s an ‘accent shape.’ But really, I just broke the corner off and I’m waiting for it to grow out. :P

Senegence Sunday – Jan. 15, 2017

In this issue:

  • New team members!
  • A $20,000 commission check?! WTF
  • Application video, and more!

In an effort to remain accountable to my new year’s resolution of building a lipstick empire, I’m going to have occasional updates on Sundays. I am so excited and happy that I joined the Senegence ranks and I hope that my updates are inspiring!

First, I’m really pleased that Malisa B., Jennifer P., and Heather F. have all taken the plunge and joined by team. They are all still within their first 90 days and are already killing it! Both Malisa and Jennifer are on track to reach their fast start rewards which means they are going to get to enjoy tons of free product!

My personal sales volume tipped over $4,500. That just in two months you guys! That is so much money! There are girls doing way more than that, too!

The woman pictured here is Jalynn. She is my upline’s upline. So…my grandupline? Anyway…she just ranked *again* and is making so much money that I can’t even imagine what it must be like to be her! And she’s only been doing this for 7 months! (Her commission check for November was $20,000. I am not f%cking with you.)

senegence_queen

When I pester people to join my team, it’s not because I’m trying to be annoying. This business is growing so fast and I want my friends, family, and followers to be a part of it with me! As Jalynn said in her post, you can sit back and watch me do this, or you can hop on and enjoy the ride with me!

I made a YouTube video on how to apply LipSense. It’s actually pretty embarrassing but I’m going to share it with you anyway.

If you’ve been watching from the sidelines about all this LipSense craziness, let me know what questions you have. I will personally respond! :)

 

Plaid Nail Art Stamping

{Press Sample}

Good morning! Today’s mani starts with two coats of Pretty Serious Love Bite which is a super dark oxblood jelly polish. I used an It Girl Stamping Plate and It Girl Stamping Polish to create this plaid nail art design.

plaid-nail-art plaid-nail-art-stamping

Pretty Serious Love Bite did not look this patchy in real life. In fact, when I went to edit the photos a few days later, I was shocked at these close ups! The bright light shining right on the polish is really exaggerating the patchiness and I promise you, it looks even in real life.pretty-serious-love-bite pretty-serious-love-bite-swatch

Purple Stripe Stamping Nail Art

{Purchased by Me}{Press Sample}

It feels like a purple day to me! This manicure starts with two coats of OPI Rich and Brazilian which is from the Breakfast at Tiffany’s Collection. I used Mundo de Unas Velvet and a design from It Girl Stamping Plate to create this two-tone purple look.

it-girl-nail-art-stamp

I have an itch for some new stamping plates so I’ve been harassing Nicole this week about when her next shipment is coming in. Apparently, it’s soon. HOORAY!

Also, please join me in trying to convince Nicole (owner of It Girl) that she needs to make an X-Rated plate. I’m thinking lots of d!cks, b0obs, booze, and more.purple-strip-nail-art

I wanted to give you all an update on this crazy thing called LipSense. I’ve been selling for a little over two months and I have $4,000 in sales. That is mind blowing. When I sold Mary Kay, I barely made $1,000 in sales in a whole year. LOL. Join my Facebook Group to see what the fuss is all about. (And, to be honest, I haven’t really been trying THAT hard to sell it. I don’t even go up to strangers in the store or anything. These sales are all online.)
If you want to join my team, now is the time. SeneGence is *booming*. Email me or message me for more info. It’s 100% money-back guarantee if you want to quit. The sign-up fee is only $55. This kind of guarantee and low entry cost is unheard of.

If you’re ready to dive right in, go to Senegence.com/BettysBeauty to sign up.

Red and Blue Nail Art

Good morning! Is it cold enough out there for you?? Brrr!! Today, I have nail art using OPI Got the Mean Reds which is from the Breakfast at Tiffany’s collection. I used Konad Blue and a design from It Girl Stamping Plate to create this look.

Black and Holo Nail Art

I just got my January Holo Hookup box in the mail today, so I guess I better finally post this nail art from the December box. LOL. #slacker Darling Diva Polish Vivien

The base color for this mani Darling Diva Polish Vivien and it is THE reason why I ordered the December Holo Hookup. I’m happy to report that my expectations met reality and I lovelovelove this polish.

I used Konad Black as my stamping polish and a design from an It Girl Stamping Plate (which was given to me by the wonderful Nicole as a press sample.)

New Year, New You, New Resolutions?

Good morning and happy new year! I woke up this morning to a light snowfall that cleanly covered our whole yard and street. I’m not a huge fan of the snow, but I thought it was a fitting way to wake up to a new year. It is a fresh slate; it’s ready for us to start anew.

That is, it was a fresh slate until the cutest dogs in the world went and pooped on it. :P

golden-retriever-puppy

I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions, but for some reason, this year I feel like I need to. I have a lot of things that I’d like to improve upon in 2017 and perhaps you’ll join me in some of them. :)

Resolution #1: Lipstick Empire

First, many of you know that I joined Senegence and started selling LipSense. It has been amazing. In two months, I sold over $3,250. I’m shocked! My resolution this year is to continue doing well in retail sales but also to build my team. There are many ways to join the Senegence family under my team.

When I signed up, I just did it for the personal discount. In my first order, I only bought colors that I knew I would wear myself. That way, if nobody bought any, then I would at least have a nice collection for myself. Naturally, I posted selfies and since this stuff is amazing, it escalated from there. :) But, signing up for a personal discount is common and totally allowed! You will always receive at least 20% off your orders, regardless of size.

join-lipsense

The other selling option is to be casual about it. Post selfies and when people are interested, let them buy from you. I would say this is where I am right now. I don’t talk up strangers in the stores and I don’t message people often on social media about it. I’ve been casually selling and I’ve sold $3,250+ of product. That is insane. sell-lipsense

The last option is to seriously go balls-to-the-wall and obsess over selling LipSense. This is where you’re going to make a crap load of money, earn crazy bonuses from the company, and more. THIS is my goal. This means I’m going to need to step outside of my comfort zone, talk to strangers (oh gawd, that’s scary!) and sell the hell out of this amazing product. Who’s with me?!?!?!?!sign-up-for-lipsense

You  can come join us in my LipSense Facebook group here.

Or, if you’re ready to dive in and change your lips AND your life, go here and put in my sponsor number of #223849. Then, shoot me an email so I can help guide you through your first order and first party!

Resolution #2: 10,000 Steps

My second, but just as important, resolution is to get back in the habit of getting 10,000 steps per day on my FitBit. Throughout 2016, I had great spurts of activity (somedays, even reaching nearly 20,000 steps!) but I kept falling off the wagon. 10,000 steps is actually relatively easy if you park further away at the store and talk a little walk or two during the day.

Who’s with me on this one? Add me as a friend on FitBit so we can keep each other accountable and motivated!

Resolution #3: Eat Better

This one ties in with #2, obviously. I can walk all I want, but if I’m stuffing my face with french fries drenched in mayo, I probably won’t end up feeling that much better. :P

I’ve been really successful with Weight Watchers in the past and since I’ve already been paying for a membership in 2016….I guess I should go ahead and start using it in 2017! My username there is 3doggymama (even though I have 4 dogs now!!)

What about you?

What resolutions do you have this year? Are you going to join me in any of mine?

 

Zoya Naturel Collection Part 3

{Press Sample}

Zoya has sent me the third iteration of their Naturel collection. The naturel collections are a series of nude-toned creme polishes. As usual, they have a great formula and are opaque in only one or two coats.

Zoya Tatum

A lot of these colors are pretty similar but there are clearly three dark purpley-browns and three light nudes. This is a great collection for people to try and find their perfect nude because there will be at least one color in this collection that will look great on any skin tone.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Winter Nail Art

{Purchased by Me}{Affiliate Link}

Today’s winter nail art starts with OPI Five-and-Dime which is from the Breakfast at Tiffany’s collection. I used Konad Light Blue as my stamping polish and a design from IG Plate IG113.

I have quite a few scheduled posts with my “accent shape” nail. But, for those of you who have been hating it, don’t worry! I broke all my nails yesterday when I was at Costco. So they are all nubbins again. :( wintery-nail-art
