I'm Back!!! Wild NOTD

Hello Everyone!!!

So...I've been gone for a while. We can thank my graduate studies for that. Although it has been a lot of work I've loved every moment of the experience. Even the heart-wrenching, nerve-racking thesis defense. This sums up how I felt before, during, and after my defense. I still can't believe it's over. Now all that's really left to do is graduate ☆*・゜゚・*\(^O^)/*・゜゚・*☆ (cue celebratory dance)!!! In honor of the wild ride, here's a wild NOTD!

This look was done using Konad Stamping Plate M57. I used the original a england Holy Grail as the base and Konad Special Nail Polish in black. I absolutely LOVED the results!

Hope you all enjoyed the post! Does anyone else love stamping nail art? I've just
started but I'm already hooked!Comment and let me know!

OPI Pamplona Purple Swatch

Hello Everyone!

The weekend is again upon us! My week ended on a very high note. I mean dog whistle high! So high you can't even hear it. I just got the approval to start conducting interviews for my thesis research! 万歳(banzai/hooray)!!!!! Some benevolent spirit must know my birthday is coming soon. I've never been so ready for Monday to get here! Speaking of birthdays, I have yet another swatch for my Birthstone Manicure series! I present to you all, OPI Pamplona Purple!!!

without flash
Pamplona Purple is a gorgeous plum purple creme polish! In my opinion, it leans the slightest bit redder in real life. The formula on this was great! The consistency was neither thick nor thin. Pamplona Purple goes on to the nail even from the first coat. I needed just two coats to reach perfect opacity, no bald spots! The shine was amazing even before I put on my top coat. This is a great color to add to any collection!

Hope you all enjoyed the post! I hope you're also enjoying all this purple!
So tell me what you think! Is Pamplona Purple something you'd
add to your collection? Comment below!
