Panda Nail Art

Hello everybun!
Though I haven't had any much of nail art posted last week, I was working super hard on nail related things! I made over 100 mini bottles of polish, updated and quality checked all my inventory and made tons of 3 and 5 mini polish grab bags. It's all for my upcoming Craft Show. I'll be sure to post plenty of pictures and post the nails that I'll be wearing that day.
Accept these Panda nails as a trade off for all of the shop work I've been doing!

I used a dotting tool for everything besides the ring finger panda. I used my Bissu white which is unnamed and the black pictures, which is a black from Hot Topic. Then I topped it all off with a coat of Seche Vite. 

I hope to see you all Wednesday, but if I don't, know that I'm not intentionally ignoring you all! The craft show is the 5th and I'm getting all of my last minute polish things done.

Thanks for stopping by!

KKCenterhk Review - Black Mirror Nail Foil

*This product was sent to me for review in exchange for my honest opinion
Hey lovelies, Monday has almost come and gone, but I managed to fit a post in before the day has ended!
I have for you today some very interesting nail foils that I absolutely LOVE from KKCenterhk. So let's get to it!

The most interesting thing happened with these. I used Jessica - Black Matte as my base, then used the Beauty glue that came with the nail foils, slapped the foils on, and proceeded to use top coat...

...and this happened! The nails with topcoat turned from reddish/orange to blue! I marked the nails, as you can see, above.

I always recommend using top coat, (Seche Vite is my choice) with nail foils because they otherwise shed off really easily. I'm not sure if it was the Seche Vite or what, but I was definitely surprised when it happened!

The shiny effect that these foils have isn't exactly mirror, and they look a bit textured (though that could just be my error in applying them!), but I still love the effect they give!

You can find these foils here or you can check out the other nail foils they have here.

Fun with Floral

Happy, Happy Friday everyone! 
It's been nice being around the blog this week, and I have more nail art for you today!
I've been having fun with floral this week and when stumped for an idea of nail art, I thought why not keep on with the trend?

My favorite nails are my pointer and ring. I love the way the branchy things look!
As you can see I used Maybelline - Audacious Asphalt as my base, and acrylic paint for the rest.
Have a flowery and fun Friday!

KKCenterhk Review - Nail Pearls

*This product was sent to me for review in exchange for my honest opinion

Hey everybun, I have a long overdue review of these awesome little nail pearls from KKCenterhk, so let's get right into it!

These little lovlies, which you can find here, are 3mm and come in a variety of colors in a little pot like you see above. You will get about 100 pieces which is more than enough, because if you're careful enough you can reuse them!
Here is the look I created with them :

I used Seche Top coat to attach these buggers and the stay power was awesome! I was able to wear these for a full day before I started to pick at them. The ones that I didn't pick at, stayed until I removed them 3 days later. 

These are such a cool addition to my nail art collection because I really didn't have anything like them!

These will run you $4.50 plus shipping for a pot like you see far above.

I have another item that will be making an appearance on the blog next week from KKCenterhk (woo nail foils!)

See you all Friday!

Spring Mani (for a contest!)

Hey everyone!
I've had a flu/cold kicking my butt since Sunday, and I've finally felt well enough to get out of bed which means I've also felt well enough to do my nails! I've had this 2 Girls 20 Nails Spring Nail Art Competition in the back of my mind for the past week and got straight to a spring-ish mani today. Here's what I came up with:

I did a little gradient with some spring-y bright colors, then some one stroke flowers and wellah!

Here is my entry for the competition:

Happy Spring everybun!

Thank you all!

Hey everyone!
I haven't seen you all in a while! 
I have A small update and a huge thank you so let's get to it!
My aunt is out of the Hospital as of today (yay!) so it looks like I'll be able to start up some nail art again! I do have a few pictures of the few polishes I've slapped on in the past week, so I guess I wasn't exactly polish free. 
I've also finished my first 2 big orders with my polish shop AND I'm almost done with my Fancy Shawl Pt. 2. Yeah, I had to redo it COMPLETELY because it was my first time using a sewing machine, this was me :

I messed SOMETHING up and my fabric came out all bunched up and I tried everything to fix it, but eventually just made it worst. 
Oh well, The Fancy Shawl Pt. 2 is looking mighty fiiiiine, so I guess I can't complain (even if I had to spend another $80 on fabric).
Over all, All is well in Leeshaland, I definitely foresee myself once again spending glorious nights with my much neglected nail polishes.

And now it's time for the thank you!
Thank you so much to everyone who purchased my Love 4 JLK Nail Polishes. 
As promised, I donated half to St. Jude's and half to the family of JLK. I managed $35 which meant $17.50 for each. On the JLK website, I was having a problem with the .50 (when I'd go to pay, it would say $175,000! And as much as I'd love to donate that amount I have no where near the funds for it!) so I just evened it out to $18.00. Here are the screenshots with personal info blanked out :

So thank you so much to everyone, for both sticking around the blog and buying polish for such a good cause!
I'll see you all on St. Paddy's Day with some fun, fun stufff!

Life Update!

Hello everyone!
I do NOT have any pretty nails for you today, sorry bout that! So if you're looking for nails and not just a bunch of blah, blah, blah, turn back now!
I've been really lazy with doing my nails lately, unfortunately. I just need the inspiration and the creativity, but I messed up on my fancy shawl so I have to do a lot of work to create a new one and that's draining my creativity.
Also, remember I Said I had my license test today? I PASSED!
Yay, happy dance!

With all of my crafty stuff I must do, and the expansion of Leesha's Lacquer to brick and mortar shops, i will be and have been a busy bee! 
I hope you can all understand at this time if my blog posts are a bit sporadic. When life calms down I'll surely have some super cool stuff for you all.

And to thank you for all of your much appreciated patience, I plan to have a Leesha's lacquer giveaway! When I'm ready for that, I'll post more details.
I love you all and thanks for sticking with me through this hectic time!

Leesha's Lacquer - Desert Mirage Swatch and YAY NEW LAPTOP!

It wasn't long that I had to go without a laptop. The screen was mysteriously broken in the corner Thursday, Completely shattered and unusable Friday and I had a new one by Sunday! I'm happy I have my new one and only missed 1 day of posting. 
Friday was a super eventful day. I met up with some old girlfriends that I haven't spoken to since High School and got "the gang" back together. They all lurved that I make polish now, and of course I gave them freebies! My friend Angela was kind enough to supply me with a swatch of one of my new polishes, Desert Mirage and since I was busy with them all weekend and wasn't able to properly fit in mani time.
This is Desert Mirage courtesy of Angela :

I gotta hardcore thank Angela for letting me post her swatches! 
Leesha's Lacquer will be going through some expansion soon, I'll have an offishal announcement about it as soon as the ball gets rolling. 
See you all on humpday and wish me luck on my drivers test! It's on Wednesday!
