Sation Heather

I have some more Sation beauties to show you over the next week. Sation bottles are oval with thick glass bottoms. The new brushes are great for ladies like me that love wide brushes. The formula on all the ones I've tried is excellent. You can purchase Sation's Big 3 Free polishes at their website.

Here we have the gorgeous Sation heather, a hot orange based coral with just a hint of shimmer.Two coats and excellent formula again. This will be on my toes a lot in the coming months; I love it!

Nail Art Inspired By Little Green Hearts Blog

I've had this manicure by Little Green Heart saved in my inspiration bookmarks for ages & I finally made my own version. It's very quick & easy & I love the results! I used Sation Cappuccino for the base, American Apparel Hassid, Essie Little Brown Dress, & Sation Midtown Haze for the dots.

Sation Cappuccino


I have some more Sation beauties to show you over the next week or so & another Sation giveaway to announce soon too! Sation bottles are oval with thick glass bottoms. The new brushes are great for ladies like me that love wide brushes. The formula on all the ones I've tried is excellent. You can purchase Sation's Big 3 Free polishes at their website.

This is Sation Cappuccino. Another lovely polish that seems to be a cross between a jelly & cream finish. All of the Sations I've tried are super shiny & this one is no exception. The formula glides on with almost no cleanup necessary. I'm not sure this is quite the right nude shade for my pale winter skin, but I'm going to give it another go after I lose my deathly winter pallor. It makes a fantastic base for nail art & I've got a quick one to show you soon.

Weekly Giveaway Roundup

 
I love giveaways. Each week I'll post giveaways that I think are awesome! I'm trying to catch any giveaway that has nail polish & I always post them on the Monday before they close. I figure some publicity towards the end of the entry period is a good idea, so don't worry that I've forgotten yours if I don't post it immediately! On the other hand, I know that I will occasionally miss a giveaway or two. If I miss yours, please know that it was accidental and nothing personal!

I've decided to note which giveaways aren't open internationally. The default will be open worldwide, meaning I'll only note if they have restrictions.
