Happy Sloth Necklace & A French Manicure


I won the Happy Sloth Necklace from the Steals, Deals and Heels giveaway that I posted in one of my Giveaway Roundups! I love him so much!! This necklace is available from MaryMary Handmade on Etsy. Everything in her shop is unbelievably adorable!!!! Here's a link to her blog as well. Look at this amazing Pinwheel Ring that actually spins!!!
I decided to make some sort of tree nails for my happy sloth. I haven't named him yet. Any suggestions? I tried a couple of different ideas for some tree nails but ended up just going with a simple French Manicure design. I used China Glaze Chocdisiac for the base and Sinful San Francisco for the tips.
Once again entering blog giveaways paid off for me! Have you entered my giveaways yet? Enter here for your chance to win $70 worth of organic skin care products from Melvita or enter here to win your chance at a $70 CSN Stores shopping spree. Both of these end tomorrow night!!!
You can also enter our follower appreciation giveaway. Thanks to everyone who has entered and helped spread the word so far!

Just for the record, no one paid me to do this post. I won the prize fair and square and was so happy with it that I decided to share it with you.

Thanks for reading!

Nails To Match My New Bag


Yet another reason why I enter giveaways! I won this LRG bag from Highsobiety. I've always loved military inspired fashions and this gorgeous bag is no exception.

Ashley & I still haven't acquired a perfect army green polish which makes us sad in our hearts. I used Ashley's OPI You Don't Know Jacques for the base color. Santee Midtown Haze, Color Club Feel the Beat and Maybelline Khaki Fringe for the stripes. Then I used China Glaze Matte Magic over everything. I LOVE the end result.
I love winning gorgeous things! Enter all three of my current giveaways for your chance to get that little rush of adrenaline and endorphins when you're the winner! There are links to each giveaway on the right side of the blog. Good luck!

Just for the record, no one paid me to do this post. I won the prize fair and square and was so happy with it that I decided to share it with you.

China Glaze New Day


I picked this up in our favorite crazy nail polish store (one for me and one for our giveaway). China Glaze New Day is a dusty with a silver cap but I can't find it anywhere on the China Glaze website. Anybody know more about this one? I've been looking for cornflower blues lately so I was immediately drawn to this one when I saw it in the dusty bin. I would call it a cornflower blue frost. The formula was a little difficult and this is three coats.

Have you entered all three of our giveaways yet? Ashley & I worked hard to make the instructions clear and easy to follow. What do you think of the form? We went with this method for a lot of reasons. It protects you email address and it automatically puts each entry into a google spreadsheet that I can sort anyway I wish. This makes finding cheaters much simpler and also greatly simplifies using a random number generator to pick the winner since each entry is already in a numbered spreadsheet.

Anyway, thanks for reading!

Nails to Match My New Boots


This is why I enter blog giveaways! I won this amazing pair of Sorel boots from the lovely Karen Vitt & her blog The Neat Sheet. These things have already made my life easier. I can wear them when I'm mixing my concrete and then just hose them off when I'm done instead of ruining endless pairs shoes. Thanks Karen!

Tulsa gets a lot of thunderstorms. Wally & I were outside playing the other day when the wind started up.

I decided to paint my nails to match my new boots. I used China Glaze Chocodisiac for the base, American Apparel Cotton & a Migi Nail Art Pen for the stripes.

And for all of you LOST fans out there, Sorel's logo is a polar bear!

Please remember to enter my giveaways! They are listed on the right side of my blog.

Just for the record, no one paid me to do this post. I won the prize fair and square and was so happy with it that I decided to share it with you.

Maybelline Gold Aluminum


This is one of the four Maybelline polishes up for grabs in our giveaway! There are now links to the other three on the giveaway post. This was very easy to apply after a couple of drops of thinner. I could get away with one coat if I was careful. I actually like this gold with my skintone and this polish works great with Konad!

Our First Follower Appreciation Giveaway! (Ended)


Welcome to April & Ashley's first Follower Appreciation Giveaway! We've had so much fun with this blog! One lucky follower from anywhere in the world will win:
  • 5 Tic Tac Nail Lacquers
  • 4 Maybelline Nail Polishes
  • 1 China Glaze New Day Nail Polish
  • 8 Demeter Fragrance Samples
  • MAC Royal Assets Metallic Eyes Palette!
  • Kevin Aucoin Expert Lip Tint in Sucara
  • Konad Plate M45
  • Handmade Soap from Clear Creek Lavender
  • Spirited Style Micro Purse in Pop Candy
Here are more details and pictures about each item.

Tic Tac is a brand we found at our favorite, crazy nail polish store in Tulsa. We can't find ANY information about this brand on the internet. They don't have names, just numbers. We'll post swatches of these over the course of the giveaway. All brand new.

Dollar Store Maybellines! I love mine & I know lots of you can't get them where you live. Once again we'll post swatches during the giveaway. Gold Aluminum, Khaki Fringe (one of my top 5!), Matte Rose & Matte Blue. All brand new.

China Glaze New Day with a silver top. We found this in the dusties at the crazy nail polish store. We'll post a swatch soon. Brand new.

I got these as a present and I am just not in the habit of wearing perfume (even though I asked for these) so I am passing them on to you.

The MAC Royal Assets Metallic Eyes palette & the Kevyn Aucoin Expert Lip Tint in Sucara are both things I bought for myself but when I looked at the colors, I knew I wouldn't use them. I meant to return them but I never got around to it, so they've been sitting tucked away in a closet in their original packaging since then. The palette is seriously gorgeous! I'm not any kind of a makeup expert but I know this was a limited edition and they go for around $50 if you can find them on ebay. Do any of you know a site that has swatches of these that I can link to?

This was my first Konad plate & I got bored with it very quickly. I'm not very patient so lining up the french tips just didn't work out for me. This is the only item in the giveaway that is used but it is still in great shape.

I love Clear Creek Lavender soaps and I think you will too!

I won this adorable purse several months ago. My sisters & I have since discovered that we just don't change our purses ever. I know lots of girls do but I am just too lazy. So I get to pass it on to one of you ladies. Brand new with the tags still attached.

Sinful San Francisco & Mardi Gras Nails

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!

This is 2 coats of Sinful San Francisco. I could have used a third coat but I knew I was just doing this as the base for my Mardi Gras nails so I left it at two. Very pretty emerald shimmer/glitter but not a color I will be wearing regularly. I'll probably keep it around for holiday nails unless I can find a one coat green shimmer.

This manicure looked so much cooler in my brain! It turned out ok but it was such a pain in the ass that I kind of hated it before I even finished. I love Lacquer Laine's swoop manicures and thought the technique would look great with traditional Mardi Gras colors. I was defeated by my rather small stash. I don't have any one coat golds or greens! I just painted my nails green with Sinful San Francisco and then tried to freehand the gold with the brush part of my gold Migi Nail Art polish. It wasn't opaque so I had to go over it again and I made a mess! The gold started building up a yucky ridge before I figured out that i could paint the gold all the way to the ends of my nails instead of just trying to keep it in a narrow stripe. Next time I try this I need one coat wonders or some masking tape! Oh well, lesson learned. I used Sinful Let's Talk for the purple.

My First Franken - Muddy Waters


This was so fun! I have been setting aside polishes that I don't work for me in anticipation of a day of mixing them up to see what happens. Here's my first attempt and I'm pretty pleased with result. I mixed this turquoise shimmer with Sinful Big Daddy. I knew these were complimentary colors so they would probably make a brown, but I didn't anticipate such an interesting result. I decided to name it Muddy Waters. This ended up being a nice dark mushroom color with a strong turquoise shimmery flash. I certainly don't have anything even close to this in my little collection. I think you could achieve a similar result by mixing any two complimentary colors. Maybe a yellow creme with a purple shimmer would give you a mushroom with purple flash. Green shimmer & a red creme might make a mushroom with green shimmer. Get out your unwanteds and start mixing up some mushroom shimmers! Let me know if you try it out!
.
Here is my second Valentine's manicure. I used Muddy Waters as a base and my Migi Nail Art Pens for the hearts. I got the idea from Steph at Nail Juice. I call my version Valentine's Day Blues.


Enter blog giveaways! It's a great way to get new readers, make new friends and you might get lucky! I won a $75 gift certificate to L'Occitane just this morning!

Bee Mine Valentines Manicure


I can't believe I did this! I used Sally Hansen White Out (which I don't recommend) for the base & the amazing Migi Nail Art Pens that I won from Painted Lady Fingers. I could never accomplish this with a brush but the Migi Pens are like drawing with a henna bottle which I can do in my sleep! I'll post pictures of my time as a henna artist someday.

UPrinting Review & Giveaway!!! (Closed)


Our first giveaway! Woohoo! This is the first in what I hope to be a series of giveaways featuring prizes from companies that I love from personal experience.

I purchased my business cards from UPrinting and the experience was terrific! I needed them for a very important event and I made a mistake and ordered them too late! I called UPrinting and their very kind customer service representative helped me get them on time! The cards turned out great thanks in large part to their free proofing service. I also requested one of their sample kits before I placed my order which was also extremely helpful. Here's a picture of my business cards on a concrete cake stand that my sister Alisa painted to match!

So here's my giveaway prize:

  • 250 Custom Stickers/Labels for One (1) lucky winner
  • Sizes: 2” x 3.5”, 2” x 4”, or 3” x 3”
  • Paper: 70lb Label Matte
  • Specifications: Full color front, blank back; 6 Business Day printing
  • Shipping: FREE UPS Ground Shipping
  • Eligibility: Limited to US Residents only (Sorry to my international readers! I'll be having a big nail polish giveaway soon open to everyone!)
This is a great prize worth at least $45 depending on the stickers you choose. UPrinting custom stickers are a great way to promote your blog or your business, ladies! You could use them as address labels, packaging labels or as a fun alternative to the standard business card. UPrinting's label printing has a very helpful & easy to use design tool for making your stickers too! What would you use them for?

To enter just leave a comment on this post telling me what kind of stickers/labels you'll make if you're the winner! This is your mandatory entry. Be sure to leave an email if I can't get to it from your profile!

You can earn one extra entry by doing each of the following (leave an extra comment for every thing you do):
  • Blog about the giveaway with a link to this post & UPrinting.
  • Become a follower of my blog or let me know if you are already a follower.
  • Tweet about the giveaway leaving me a link for verification; can be done once a day.
  • Become a fan of 4BrooksDesign on Facebook (link on right sidebar).
One lucky winner will be selected on February 19th, 2010 at 11:59 pm CST. Winner must respond to their email within 24 hours or a new winner will be selected. I'll be receiving the same prize as the winner and I'll be sure to show you how they turn out!

Maybelline Blue Chill


Maybelline Blue Chill is one of my favorite Dollar Tree purchases. No application issues with this one; two thick coats was plenty. The picture below was taken during our first blizzard in the blinding white light of tons of snow. The next picture was indoors with natural light.


Here it is with a quick Konad in China Glaze Chocodisiac from plate M60.

Maybelline Red & Bronze Aluminum & A Giveaway Roundup


These are 2 more from my Dollar Tree haul. Maybelline Red Aluminum & Bronze Aluminum were a little thick and hard to work with. They are both okay colors but not exciting enough to make it into my regular rotation. Like all of the Maybellines I've written about so far, these work great for Konad so they are totally worth their $1 price tag. If you love Konad pick up any of the Maybelline Mattes or Aluminums!

Orly - Enchanted Forest and Mirror Mirror

These two polishes come from Orly's Once Upon a Time... collection from last fall.

Enchanted Forest is a dark green creme. I thought this shade was going to be a bit lighter than it is. It looked too close to black most of the time on the nail. Still a nice color, just not what I was looking for.


Mirror Mirror is a light grey creme, with a slightly blue tone.



Here it is against a grey skirt of mine. You can see the blue tone to it better here.

This is one of the only polishes that April & I both purchased. Here is April wearing it with Konad plate M63.

I enjoyed this collection from Orly. If I'd had the money I would have bought them all (Minus pixie dust. I love cremes!).

-Ashley
