Funfetti Cake Batter Manicure!!

 Nicole by OPI "Rainbow in the S-Kylie"
Super fun multi-color, multi-shape glitter polish.
Nicole by OPI "Kim Konfidential," one of my favorite nude nail polishes.

 1. Base Coat Essie
2. One Thin Coat "Kim Konfidential"
3. Second Thin Coat "Kim Confindential"
4. One Coat "Rainbow in the S-Kylie"
5. Second Coat "Rainbow in the S-Kylie" (just to fill in any gaps, not complete coats.)
6. One Thin Coat of "Kim Konfidential"
7. Seche Vite Top Coat

And that is how I achieved this muted glitter-y look. :)
 I didn't like this look at first, but now the water color-ness is growing on me. (I'm too lazy to take it off. :P)
It reminds me of Pilsbury Funfetti cake batter! 
I wanted to do something fun on my nails for the 4th of July.  I never really get to have crazy fun nails on Wednesday's and Friday's because I work in an office on those days.  It's such a treat that the 4th is on Wednesday this year!! :D

Speaking of that, I found a super cute Funfetti dip & animal cookies recipe on Pinterest ^_^
Who loves Pinterest? I do! 
1 (18.9 oz) box Funfetti cake mix
2 cups fat-free plain yogurt
1 cup lite Cool Whip
Fat-free animal crackers

You can find the full recipe here. :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July vacation with family, friends & loved ones!
I'm going to be spending mine with friends this year in Seattle. =^_^=

P.S. There's a new cheek palette by NARS called Foreplay!
I am still in love with my All About Cheeks (Dan Mari) Palette by NARS, and I'm excited to see a new one on the market. : )  I'm passing on this, but I just wanted to share the new news. :D
The idea is to be able to customize your blush shade with the three smaller pans of color surrounding their number one blush, Orgasm.

Available at Sephora.


  1. wow, that is a unique glitter coat. ^_^

  2. @Emy It's looks like paint spatters, doesn't it? This is probably my first time ever wearing non-sparkly glitter polish!

  3. it looks awesome! you have beautiful nails!

  4. I've been meaning to try glitter sandwiching on my nails...but I don't have a good gel polish to try it with. But yours look really nice! :D mmm and thanks for the funfetti dip recipe!

  5. Beautiful!

    I love animal crackers....

  6. Such a great idea for the muted glitter look!

  7. Steph! Your nail polish is absolutely gorgeous! I love it! I currently have on the holographic-like polish from the Designer OPI Collection and thought about u when I got it! haha.
    I have been meaning to write to you to ask if you know if the Downtown Seattle Nordstrom carries Louis Vuitton? I just graduated undergrad and am eyeing getting a Damier, white LV pattern bag. I absolutely love them all, however will probably get whatever is cheapest (aside from the small, small rectangular one) because that is all my budget can allow. I think I can swing it, however, I wanted to check with you to see if you know if the Nordstrom carries the bags and if so, if you know if they ever go on sale/ have good deals on them?
    I have wanted a Louis forever and know it will be a good investment, but I definitely would love to know of any deals and thought you would be the one to know if there were :)


  8. @Pearls & Politics Congratulations on graduation! :) Our Nordstrom's in Washington do not carry LV. There's a LV store in Downtown Seattle, and one at the Bravern in Bellevue. From my shopping experience, I have not seen LV have a sale. I know Gucci sometimes has sales throughout the year.

    If you don't mind driving 3 hours to Portland, you can pick up an LV bag from their store at the Pioneer Place tax free!

    You can also buy online if you can't make it in store. I hope that helps!

  9. Ah thanks Steph for your comment! I definitely like the tax-free idea because I didn't even think about that, and that definitely makes a difference!!
    I will let you know if I end up with one for sure :)

  10. i love your nails! they are so fun and pretty! and so jealous that you have great nails! so long and pretty!

    A Petite Treat
