Mani Monday, etc

hello lovelies! hope you had a great weekend--mine was nice and relaxing.
Saturday, I hung out with some good friends and some sweet kitties.
Sunday I slept. Ha.
But, I *do* have a mani for tonight featuring the prize I won from The Polish Diary's giveaway (Essie Shine of the Times and Wet n Wild Back Alley Deals).
This is two coats of Borghese Stellare Notte, which I found by chance for 75% off at Rite Aid. $2 baby!! Then I taped off my half moons and used Shine of the Times.
I LOVE Stellare Notte. Love Love Love. It's a black duochrome that flashes purple and green
Flashes of green

Plus my Birchbox came this weekend and there was something a little different in it.

When you buy a package you get two sheets of four designs each. Because I was off work today, I decided to try the double-winged design. I mean, I was just running errands with my mom (Wal-Mart, Target, the mall), so why not spice it up a lil bit?
They were pretty easy to put on and stayed put all day. All you have to do is fit them to your eye, trim off the excess, and if there are any gaps between the decal and your lashline, just fill it in with some pencil or liquid liner.
Usually, when I stick stuff to my face (lol), the oils in my skin usually have an effect on the adhesive and it comes off in a couple of hours.
I put it on around 1 pm
I loved how dramatic it looked. I didn't even need any eye shadow.
I couldn't stop looking in the mirror; I loved how it looked on me.

this is at around 645 pm. No smudging, no fading. And removal is SO EASY. All you do is peel them off! You can't ask for more than that.

What do your nails look like? Any beauty breakthroughs you'd like to share?
