piCture pOlish Collab-Fest 2013

Hey there, friends!

It's been a while, hasn't it? Believe it or not, life has become even more crazy AFTER I graduated! Wedding planning and work have pretty much consumed my life these last few months, hence my extreme lack of posting. Perhaps one of these days I'll be able to have a regular posting schedule again, but unfortunately it won't be possible until after the wedding.

Nonetheless, on this lovely piCture pOlish Collab-Fest Monday, I have a few images of my collaboration shade, Whimsy, for your viewing entertainment. This beautiful aqua blue is still available via the piCture pOlish website and I HIGHLY recommend it to lovers of shimmery things everywhere!


 

 

 
 
I love how this shade works for icy winter manis as well as bright and fun spring nails! Tell me, have you made Whimsy yours yet? What nail art designs have you made with it?
 
Be sure to follow piCture pOlish on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (@picturepolish) to stay in the loop!
 
Have a fantastic day everyone, if I survive the craziness of this wedding I might be able to return fairly soon!
 
♥,
Lindsey

ASU Graduation Nails!

Hey friends!

Some of you know that I graduated from Arizona State University just over a month ago. Although its been several weeks since graduation day, I finally have my some photos ready to show you...including my Sun Devils mani =]! To create this look, I used Zoya Toni, Zoya Gilty, Zoya Ziv, and Wet N Wild Black Crème. I remember doing these nails really late the night before graduation, so I was happy that they were semi presentable once finished =P Take a peek!


That's Sparky's pitchfork on my ring finger...Fork 'em, Devils =]!
 

I was so proud of my finished graduation hat! You all know how much I love bows =]!
 

SOOOO happy to be done!
 
It still hasn't completely set in that I'm finished with school. I still catch myself trying to gauge how much homework I have, only to realize that I don't have ANY! Such a wonderful feeling =]! Any other recent grads out there? I'm sure you understand where I'm coming from when I say I am SOOO excited to have completed my degree...and oh ya, I'M NEVER GOING BACK.
 
See ya, ASU...it's been a real pain in my butt treat.
 
Have a great day =]!
 
♥,
Lindsey

Disneyland Engagement Photos!

Why hello, lovelies!

I'll have you know that I am NOT a morning person. At all. However, last Friday at about 8:00 AM (early for me...don't judge) I popped out of bed with a giant smile on my face and a joyful squeal escaping my lips. Why, you ask?

Our Disneyland engagement photos were finally here!
 
Since a Disneyland wedding simply is not in the budget, Brandon promised me a Disneyland engagement photo session instead. I knew I picked a winner ;D! Months ago, we began our search for the perfect photographer to capture our love story on film...and it was a long process. An engagement session should be an exciting event, but many photographers responded to my Disneyland inquiry with hesitation and statements like "It's kind of hard, but I guess we could try to make it happen." That wasn't good enough for me! Was it too much to ask that a photographer would be excited about our idea?! It was at about that point in the research process that I came across D Park Photography. From the moment that they enthusiastically responded to my email, I knew that these guys were the photographers for us! As fellow Disney lovers, they were completely thrilled with our idea and I could tell that they weren't intimidated with the challenges a busy theme park might present. Since Brandon and I don't live in California, we worked out the details via email. At first we were nervous about meeting our photographer for the first time on the day of the shoot, but from the moment we shook hands with Russell and Cara, our minds were at ease! They were so warm, inviting, and chock full of incredible ideas! By the end of the shoot, I felt like I was hanging out with old friends!
 
D Park Photography helped us plan a modern day Cinderella and Prince Charming shoot, including other picturesque Disneyland shots. Now, how about some of those photos?
 
 
Oops...Cinderella's lost her shoes!
 

 

 

Many thanks to Cara, the bubble wrangler =P!
 

 

Notice our lovely photobomber in back...haha!
 

 

Back in the engagement spot =]!
 

 

 

 
 
I absolutely ADORE how these turned out! My mind was blown when I saw these, they're better than anything I could have ever imagined! Again, Brandon and I could not thank D Park Photography enough for their efforts to make our shoot unforgettable. We HIGHLY recommend them for any of you in need of photography services! Take a peek at their website, Facebook page, and blog to see more of their work.
 
Nope, no nails in this post, just cuteness and love ♥! Hope you don't mind =]
 
Have a wonderful day!
 
♥,
Lindsey

Introducing The Newest piCture pOlish Shade, WHIMSY!

 Press Sample  
Today is a very exciting day for Neverland Nail Blog, friends!

I was fortunate enough to participate in the piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2012 last July. I had such a blast testing some new piCture pOlish shades and doing a fun little photoshoot along with my swatches! Through that, I was offered the opportunity to collaborate with piCture pOlish and create a limited edition shade of my very own =]! I've kept this awesome news to myself for quite some time (and it has NOT been easy =P!), but the time has come to unveil my creation!

Well, lovelies, here it is....introducing, Whimsy!





 
 
Bottle Macro =]

 
It took me some time to dream up the polish that I wanted to make a reality, but I eventually found the perfect inspiration though fashion (a photo of an adorable party dress, to be exact). This vivid aqua blue with luxe golden micro flakies is downright magical and took my breath away from the moment I first laid eyes on it! I am extremely proud and honored to have my blog, as well as my own personal style, represented by this incredible lacquer =]! 
 
piCture pOlish has a little bit to share about Whimsy, too, in their official description:
 
"Whimsy was created with Lindsey from Neverland Nail Blog
  
Inspiration:  A totally sensational blue dress with a touch of gold
 
Whimsy is an Azure blue creme with just a hint of gold sparks makes a totally dreamy combination!  You really need to see it to believe it!"
 
I couldn't agree more, you really do need to see to believe! On to the beautiful swatches!
 

 

 

 

 
There are other blue polishes with golden shimmer in them, but certainly nothing like this. I found Whimsy to be significantly brighter and more golden leaning (in person...my silly camera dulled the sparkle a bit) than other polishes in the same category. Besides, the opacity it gives is perfection! I used 3 coats for good measure, but 2 coats would do the job just fine! The formula, like every other piCture pOlish I've tried, was fabulous. Have I convinced you to give Whimsy a try yet? If not...check this baby out with a matte top coat (Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love, specifically).
 

 

 

 
I really hope you all are as excited about my creation as I am! I'd like to give major thanks to piCture pOlish for allowing me to take part in such an incredible opportunity. I'll never forget this, its a dream come true for a polish lover like me =]!
 
Sadly, this polish is only here for a limited time. If you can't live without this gorgeous specimen in your life, you'd better act fast! Who knows, if enough of us join together and form a Whimsy fan club (complete with matching jackets ;]), this shade might stick around longer than we think! It will be available for purchase on the piCture pOlish site very soon, so grab your own bottle today!
 
Head on over to the piCture pOlish Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages to stay in the know with Whimsy and many other amazing shades!
 
Have a lovely, whimsical day ;D!

♥,
Lindsey

piCture pOlish Friday - Mad Magenta with Holo Accents!

 Press Sample  
Howdy!

Friday is upon us again, and with it, comes a special piCture pOlish celebration! Today's piCture pOlish Friday highlights the intense, vibrant, and unforgettable shade of Mad Magenta. This neon fuchsia polish really packs a punch...I promise, you'll be noticed with these nails! I normally am not a huge fan of pinky-purples since there are SO many of them out there (another reason I usually don't like reds!) and they have all looked the same to me, but this one is different...man, it sure is BRIGHT! Just 2 coats were needed for this mani. Take a peek!


 
 
I kept things nice and bold with the addition of a few accent nails of Layla Ocean Rush. Those with sensitive eyes...you may want to consider grabbing your sunglasses =]!
 

 

 
 
Mad Magenta is complete MADNESS! I'm digging this shade, and I know you will, too!
 
Be sure to check out piCture pOlish on Facebook for updates and exciting news!
 
Have a bright and bold Friday, friends =]!
 
♥,
Lindsey
