Hello my darlings! I know you are probably thinking... what the heck happened to her? The posts suddenly stopped and the banner looks quite different... Well... It is! I actually started a brand new beauty blog over on wordpress. When I first open up A BIG bit of Everything a little over 3 years ago. I just blogged about any and everything ( hence the name). I did that, because like some bloggers out there, I wasn't sure what exactly I wanted to blog about, I wasn't sure what I wanted this blogs niche to be. So then I started getting more and more into beauty, but I was still blogging about everything. So I had to make a decision. Because this blog means so much to me regarding being able to blog about whatever I wanted, I decided to keep this blog as more of a personal, ranting type blog.
My new Blog is strictly just about Beauty. I will have reviews, rants, swatch posts and some giveaways, but all Beauty related. This blog will have some giveaways ( non beauty related), Book reviews, my family life... that sort of thing.
So if you are following me on this blog because of all of my beauty posts, please hop on over to my new blog and follow there. The link to my Bloglovin to follow me will be there as well.
While creating the blog, a new venture set foot upon my life! I decided to open up my own business with Motives Cosmetics. I'm so excited about this venture and I will be at this years Makeup Show Orlando at he Krystal Makeup booth. I am helping her with her Motives booth as well as helping her as she launches her brand new Brush Belt line! So excited for her.
So hop on over to BEAUTY BY MARLY and get your dose of beauty again! There will also be a link to my Motives Cosmetics website on that blog!

Hello my darlings! Today I bring you a review on OMG Nail Strips.
OMG Nail Strips are "stickers" that you place on your nails without all the hassle of using nail polish and there is zero drying time. They are not your typical nail strips. They are not cheap stickers that will start to peel the second you put them on your nails. These are very form fitting and with the choice of 14 sizes, you are sure to find the right size for your nails ( or toes).
These cuties came just in time too.I was heading out for a weekend of fun and I didn't want to leave the house without polishing my nails. But of course, we really didn't have time for me to polish and wait for them to dry. So, I pulled these babies out and I was done in about 15 minutes!
When I was contacted to pick out a nail design I knew I wanted something that was cute and girly. Of course, it was a hard decision because they have so many cute designs to choose from, but I was able to settle for the Pink Kisses Nail Polish Strips. These just screamed girly cuteness to me.
These were very easy to apply too. I picked my right size for my nails by placing it over my nails before peeling it off the back. Then I carefully placed it on my nails, smoothing out the surface. The only different thing I did instead of using the nail filer to file away the excess at the end of your nails, was I used my own nails to carefully cut it. I bent it over my nails and then used my other hand to "pinch" it underneath the nail and it cut right off. For me this made a smoother cut then filing. But if you don't have long nails, using the nail filer will work just fine.
Before applying the nail strips, you do want to read all of the directions first though. The process of what to do after you apply them is different than other companies.
From the site: After you have applied all ten polish strips, take a cotton ball the has been dipped in polish removed with the excess remover wrung out, and swipe each nail 1-3 times, paying special attention to the sidewalls, tips and cuticle area. This step is especially important, as it melts the strip to your nails, allowing for longer lasting wear. Apply a finishing topcoat, and wait 5 minutes for it to dry completely.
I will definitely get another design soon ( I'm eyeing the Stash one) :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend darlings and I will see you soon!
