NCC Inspired by Art #2 - Lace Doilies (Crochet Art)

So I decided to go a different route when being inspired by art. I like to knit and crochet which is considered yarn art. Doilies are so pretty and delicate looking. I have a stamp plate of doilies so I went with that idea.

NCC Inspired by Art #1 - Black & White

My first mani inspired by art is from a set I am really digging on right now. I like matching art sets and I really like black and white sets the most. I came up with my own set that would be cool to have.


Holly Berry Mayhem - My Actual Xmas Mani

Here is the mani I wore on Christmas. It isn't much but I liked it. I wore another one of my polishes which I do enjoy doing. I need to make some more soon. I just have too many hobbies and not enough time or space to do them all.


Merry Christmas!!

I just wanted to say Merry Christmas. I hope you are having a day filled with joy and happiness... and hopefully awesome presents! Hopefully you don't have to work like I do. Oh well, that's the life of working at a casino.



Xmas Dot Wraps

So I decided to be a bit cheesy and used a set of Christmas nail wraps. I have a few different Christmas nail wraps laying around. I bought this set earlier this year during one of the Sally Beauty Supply Clearance sales. The base is brown with metallic red, green, and silver dots.


A Quilted Cinnamon Kiss Just Be-Claws

I thought it would look cool to do a quilted mani. I thought the contrast would be greater but it still looks ok. I don't usually sport any kind of red nails so this seems a bit weird for me but red is one of the Christmas colors so I just went with it.


Christmas Trees

I thought I would do something a bit Christmas-y. I haven't done any holiday nails yet and there's less than a week left! It's the time passing by I swear! I went with something easy and painted on some Christmas Trees :) This gave me a chance to use one of the Christmas polishes I made last year.



Have you heard of Ebates.com yet? It gives you cash back for making purchases from other websites. The list of shopping sites is huge. They have online rebates and coupons at over 1,600 Stores! I shop a LOT online and have already racked up $45+ cash back. I have it set up to automatically pay me to my PayPal account which is nice. You should check it out and if interested, use my link to sign up. We both get a bonus when you use it :)




Ms. Conduct likes Buttered Rum and Chocolate Mousse

I can't believe it's been a week since I posted something. Time is flying by way too fast. I can't even account for what I did to waste all that time. I did work hard last week was very tired and worn out. I dunno. I am going to set myself a goal to try to post at least every other day starting in 2014.

This mani reminds me of chocolate chip cookies for some reason. Maybe it was because they smelled like chocolate! I hadn't done a tip in a while so this was a nice change. I actually wore this for a couple days.


There's Snow One Like You

Look... it snowed on my nails! I thought it was supposed to snow yesterday which would have been awesome but it didn't. Anyways, I recently bought China Glaze There's Snow One Like You from Ulta during a polish sale. I really liked how it looked in other blogs and I do like it in person. It actually looks a bit better in person. I thought about adding something to it but decided to keep it fresh.


*UPDATE* I received a counterfeit item from the Sears marketplace...

I am so angry right now! I had bought a MAC lipstick in Riveting Rose from a seller on the Sears marketplace and it turned out to be fake. I called Sears 5 different times to get this resolved and I had to go to PayPal to get a refund. The customer service representatives for Sears didn't seem to care that I received a fake item. It is so aggravating when a big company like Sears won't assist its customers. I will never buy anything from anyone affiliated with Sears again i.e. Kmart! I wanted to let anyone who reads my blog to know that Sears cannot be trusted with products they sell online.

I contacted the BBB and WA State Attorney General about the incident and both are taking further action. Sears contacted me back regarding the BBB complaint. They said they would look further into the issue with the vendor and gave me a $10 egift card. I guess they think that is OK. Redtagonline is still selling from their site so I don't think they are really working on it. This is the link to the site ... http://www.sears.com/m-a-c-sexy-matte-lipstick-riveting-rose-clearance-sale/p-SPM7949288417?prdNo=1&blockNo=1&blockType=G1.

I was asked to post pictures so here they are. I also took pics of one of my MAC lipsticks to show the differences I am talking about.

This is the box it came in

Here is a front view of the fake lipstick

This is the side view

This is one of my MAC lipsticks purchased at a MAC counter.

This is the label on the bottom of the fake lipstick

This is a real MAC label.

This is the fake container with the lid off. It should have the MAC logo on it twice around.

This is the real one. The logo is on the other side too.

This is the color they sent me... NOT Riveting Rose. Riveting Rose is a dark plum color. And as I had mentioned before, no scent!

Here is a link to a blog that shows what a real MAC Riveting Rose lipstick should look like... http://bowerofblisse.blogspot.com/2011/04/mac-lipstick-in-riveting-rose.html



My Birthday Skittlette mani

So I just celebrated my birthday and this is what I sported for my mani. I must apologize that my thumb looks bad and I really don't know what happened. It got stained somehow but all my other nails are good to go. It's weird. I went for the presents with bows look. It also gave me a chance to try out Cult Nails Disillusion.


NCC Favorite Color #4 - Jade Butterflies

So I remembered I hadn't used any of my Mo-You plates. I am actually excited to use them. I got to use one of them here. This was my last green mani for the month of November. I do have to say this is my fav of the four but that's because I was having some issues n stuff.
