 If you follow Pretty in Paint on Facebook, you know I've been sick for a little over a week now, and I'm still trying to get better, so the lovely Princess Polish has done a guest post for Pretty in Paint today!


Happy Friday, everyone! Princess Polish here! I'm filling in for Amy today while she recovers from being sick. Get well soon, girl!

With the weekend approaching, I know a lot of you shift from tame manicures for work to funky fingers. Keeping that in mind, I thought it would be fun to show you some simple nail art trends you can try out!

I know Valentine's Day was yesterday, but I wanted to hare my 365 Days of Color Valentine's Day Surprise Bag with you! I ordered the bag as a pick-me-up and I am so happy I did! There are still some available here. The bag is described by 365 Days of Color as follows "This seasonal gift bag is not like past "mystery" bags in that there is only one full size bottle available and it is a LIMITED EDITION polish. Crush on You was made only for these Valentine's Bags and will not be available anywhere else! It is a light pink "crellie" with red and pink glitters of different sizes INCLUDING DOTS!!!! These bags will also included 2-3 extras from the line, like balms, minis, oils AND NOW CREAMS!! Also, each bag will receive one hand made rosette ring! These can be worn as regular rings or knuckle rings :) As usual, this is a FREE SHIPPING ITEM!"

The bag contained sweethearts, a jelly bracelet, 2 rosette rings, a full sized bottle of LE Crush on You, a sample size cuticle oil in amber romance and a full size balm in Dark Kiss!

butter LONDON Sweetie Shop!

Tonight I have a few polishes from butter LONDON's Sweetie Shoppe Collection!  The collection is described as follows" Straight from the catwalks, the inspiration for the Sping/Summer 2013 collection emerged from the charming colours and silhouettes of the 50’s-inspired femme fatale. Shades influenced by the soft pastels of cotton candy, milkshakes and macaroons enhance the playful feminine edge.  A brilliant sherbet, luxe lemon and peppy violet are paired with an icy mint, rich candy pink and creamy khaki for a statement that’s sweet but chic.  “Pops of pastels are iconic for spring and look like candy on the nails,” says Katie Hughes, Global Colour Ambassador for butter LONDON."
