Cute phone cases, studs and glitter from BPS

So I have been so uninspired lately and I'm not really wearing anything special on my nails. I got some goodies from Born Pretty Store for review and this will probably be the lamest review but here we go. :i

There was a misunderstanding and I got wrong phone cases I wanted to try out. I got 2 cute Iphone 4/4s cases which obviously don't fit on my Samsung Galaxy S3. I was a bit sad because I was excited about these but okay I'm getting the right ones next time and I already found a new home for them, just need to ship them out.

I really like the bow case because it's so cute and I loove cute stuff! :i Dots looks cute too and both phone cases feel really sturdy.

Then I got some studs. Studs are really everywhere so if you want to be in trend, be sure you check their studs. I got rounded gold studs, maybe a bit too big for my taste but what I really love about them that they are pretty flat and I love flat stuff for nails. Here I took a picture of the neon pink ones I already showed you here so you can see that these are bigger.

I was lacking of inspiration so I just made an accent nail with them...Pretty boring I know! :D
 Gradient: Essence - Very Berry & Essence - Meet me now

Last but not least I got the loose deltoid shaped glitter in iridescent pink which I used on my Halloween manicure. It looks pink in the pot but over black became orange to green but I'll have to use it over different colors. I applied a coat of black polish and put my nail into the pot so the glitter has stuck on my nail. Applied a layer of top coat to get a smooth surface and that's it! 

Close up, full mani here.

I'm sorry for this really bad review. :$ I know you can't really help yourself but I would recommend the studs and the cases, not really a fan of this deltoid shaped glitter, because it's pretty small so you can't really place them on one by one, I'm just too lazy for that. :-D I'm more a hexagonal glitter fan in every possible color, yes please!!!!

Oh and thanks for all the votes for my Halloween manicure I posted in my last post. I didn't make it to the top 13 but I was happy to at least try!  :D Now please help me bring my inspiration back and tell me what would you love to see here. :)

Bloody Manicure for Halloween

It feels like I didn't update my blog for ageees but I just didn't have time or inspiraton so I took a break. Of course I was painting my nails and if you follow me on Instagram - ivanathinkspink - you already saw all the manicures I'll post in the near future. 

Bundle Monster is having a Halloween contest and I really wanted to join but the final outcome wasn't so awesome as I thought it will be. I didn't have time to recreate it so today I submitted my entry. Here it is... Idea on my ring finger was something I was expecting to be much better as it is... I wanted to look like I have a zipper on my nail and it's all bloody when you open it. :D

 "Blood" and stitches were made with PS. I just had to play with photo a bit more to make it more interesting. :D
