All That Glitters Is Not Always Gold

So I was searching very hard for this nail polish and I finally found it! It is the Rainbow in the S-Kylie glitter nail polish from the new Kardashian Kolor by Nicole by OPI. I love it because you can put virtually any color polish as a base coat (including clear) and it looks awesome! I used the Essie Pink Diamond as my base. Now in these pictures it is chipping a bit on the top so I'm going to give some advice now that I've done it. So this glitter nail polish stays on until you want it off! Which has two sides to it, yes it stays on long, but it can be difficult when you want to remove it. I used cotton swabs and remover and the cotton would just stick in the glitter on my nail. I got it off eventually, but if anybody finds a better way tell me! Also I stupidly only put on one coat of the pink so by about 4 days later, it was only pink where there was glitter on top of it. Other than that it was great and a lot of people commented on it! 
Oh and one bit of thrifty advice. If you have an Ocean State Job Lot near you, don't buy Essie nail polish in the normal stores you would get it. I find tons of colors at Ocean State for about 50-60% less than other stores. But sometimes they just have a bunch of a few colors, so I would check ocean state first, then if they don't have your color spring for it!
This would also be an awesome idea for prom! My friend did it and it looked amazing!

Prom 2012 Part 3

Okay, the final part of the prom blogging this year is above all, my favorite type of dress: Princess Ball Gowns. I consider myself to be very feminine when it comes to clothes and this type of dress is obviously my favorite for that reason. You look like a princess wearing one. Who wouldn't want that!? So because it is my favorite, I am going to post more than two dresses, give the prices like the others but will not argue which one is better because I honestly could not do that. Almost every A-line ball gown I see is gorgeous to me! Oh do I dread the day I will have to pick just ONE wedding dress....
Beaded Sweetheart Tulle A-line Prom Dress $149.99
This and many other dresses like this generally have websites that are very accommodating. This dress comes in 28 colors! Especially if you order online, you can have it sized custom to your body measurements including the length! But be careful, some websites will do all this customization for a fair price, but they will almost always get the rest of your money you saved on the dress, in shipping the dress to you!

A-Line Sweetheart Royal Blue Prom Dress $245
40 colors!

Jeweled Sweetheart Organza A-line Prom Dress with Bow Sash $129.99
Now this gives the Cinderella feel without all the puffiness if you're worried about standing out too much!

A-Line Sweetheart Basque Waist Pleated Long Satin Prom Dresses $275
A-Line Sweetheart Basque Waist Pleated Long Satin Fuchsia Prom Dresses PD0037

Blue Sweetheart A-line Taffeta Prom Dress  $240.00
This picture does NOT do this dress justice! Please click the link to get a better look! 

Well that ends this year's prom dress review! Can't wait to review next year's! Who knows, maybe I'll be reviewing what you wore!
