This evening’s mani is one of my favorites that I’ve done in a long time. Let’s just say that I’m pretty pleased with myself for choosing to matte this look.
Here’s the look with a glossy topcoat. It’s pretty, but I definitely love it better matte. Which do you prefer?
This mani starts with two coats of Orly Head in the Clouds from the La La Land collection. I used Konad Red to stamp this design from a wonderful plate designed by It Girl Nail Art.
Here is a swatch of Orly Head in the Clouds. Many people have reported issues with the La La Land collection. However, I did not experience those problems. Some have said they’re streaky and need 3-4 coats. This is 2 coats in these photos. I found that if I thought of it like a crelly instead of a thick cream that it helped me apply it well.
Thanks for stopping by tonight! Leave me a note in the comments!
I’m still obsessed with It Girl’s new stamping plates. Today, I’m using It Girl Plate 306 to create a nude lace nail art look. I started with two coats of OPI Sweet Memories which is nearly identical to my natural nail’s look. Then, I used It Girl Alabaster white stamping polish to put on the lace design.
I really love how nice and delicate this turned out. Also, It Girl’s stamping polish is ah-maz-ing. Even with small, intricate patterns, you don’t lose any of the image during transfer. Also, it doesn’t stink to high heaven like other stamping polishes. I don’t know what witchcraft Nicole does to her stamping polishes, but it’s certainly working!
Here is a swatch of OPI Sweet Memories. As you can see, it barely even looks like I have polish on at all. It’s the perfect color for nude and negative space nail art.
Let me know what you think of today’s look in the comments!
It Girl has released a new plate that looks like a Kaleidoscope Stamping Plate. It is plate IG202. For the base color, I used Pretty Serious Corvus Corax (press sample) which is a deep, deep blue jelly. For the stamping, I used Mundo de Unas Mexican Pink.
I know on Sundays I normally have an update on how my SeneGence adventure is going. However, I posted a fairly decent update about it yesterday! Admittedly, not a whole lost has changed in the last 24 hours…so I’m not going to have a full update about it today. :)
I just saw what my first commission check from SeneGence is going to be. I am SO glad I signed up! I feel like I should give the whole check to Cassidy, who is the one who signed me up last October. (I’m not going to…but like…I feel like I should.)
My first check (for doing nearly nothing) from SeneGence is $577. That is on top of the profits I get from selling product!
If you have been on the fence about signing up to join my team, jump in! It’s only $55 to sign up which is the lowest entry barrier to starting your own business that I’ve ever heard of in the entire universe! (It cost me about $1,000 to start my dog training business! And that’s a very conservative estimate!)
I signed up on 10/27/2016 because I was kinda bored at work one day.Seriously. I can’t imagine what sort of butterfly effect caused that to happen, but I am SO, SO glad it did! There are only about 70,000 SeneGence distributors in the US. (Compare that to over 1,000,000 for Mary Kay and Avon…EACH.)
I know you’re ready to join me on this wild ride. And don’t worry, I’ll help you every step of the way! Go to senegence.com/bettysbeauty and click on “Sell Senegence” to get started. It will send me an email and then I’ll get in contact with you to get everything set up.
Anyway….I know that you’re really here for the nail art. Today’s look starts with two coats of Glam Polish Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Then, I used It Girl Currant Stamping Polish to stamp this knotty hearts nail art design from It Girl Plate IG115
I have some lacy nail art for you today! I started with two coats of Pretty Serious Araenae (Press Sample) which is a deep, deep dark purple jelly. I used It Girl White Stamping Polish and It Girl Plate IG306 to stamp the design on top.
I am extremely impressed with the It Girl stamping polishes. They are as pigmented as Mundo de Unas, but without the smell. I need Nicole to make some in every single color in the entire color spectrum and in every finish!
Here is a swatch of Pretty Serious Araenae without art on top. You can really see how dark and gorgeous it is!
I have another mani for you today using It Girl Plate IG115 which is her Valentine’s Day themed plate. I wanted to do something a little less foofy so I started with two coats of OPI I Drive a Supernova. Then, I used It Girl Obsidian black stamping polish and this slashed hearts design to create this black heart nail art look.
Here’s a plain swatch of OPI I Drive a Supernova. It’s a pretty standard metallic silver polish.
Thanks for stopping by again today! :) Leave a comment to tell me what you think of today’s nail art look.
I have a wee bit of stamping on my nails to show you today. The base color is Glam Polish How to Marry a Millionaire. I posted a ton of Glam Polish swatches yesterday. You should check it out here.
For the stamping color, I used Mundo de Unas Turquoise and a design from a Cici & Sisi Stamping Plate.
In other news…my work is closed today because it’s a snow day! Hooray! I hate the snow, but I will accept it if and only if it comes down in enough volume to close my work. FREE DAY! What should I do today? Paint my nails? Yes. Shower? We’ll see…
Just in time for Valentine’s Day….I have some Valentine’s Day nail art to show you! The base color for this look is OPI One Chic Chick which is a really nice light yellow creme polish. I finally bought It Girl Coral stamping polish after lusting after it on susanannie‘s nails. I also bought It Girl Plate IG115 which is full of awesome Valentine’s day stamping images. Her shipping is quite fast so if you order soon, you should have it before the 14th.
Here’s a plain swatch of OPI One Chic Chick. I rarely wear yellows and am usually repulsed by the color….but I gotta hand it to this one. I actually kinda like it, despite myself.
Today’s mani starts with Glam Polish Nobody Gets Left Behind or Forgotten. I really love the look of a two-tone mani so I decided to do a little green on green stamping. The stamping polish is Konad Green and the design is from a Cici&Sisi Stamping Plate.
I have a raffle/contest thing going on in my LipSense VIP Fan Group on Facebook. When the group reaches 350 members, I will draw one name. That person wins a $20 gift certificate to my online store AND the person that added them gets $20 to spend! So come join the fun and bring your friends with you. (Make sure to talk to your friends before just adding them to the group. Nobody likes to be force-added.)

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.
Here is a plain swatch of Glisten and Glow Mae. Her holos are super vibrant and strong.
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?
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! Here’s the link to my channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVshPV-x_xgpRcK2SSVud8g
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.
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
