Below: After Hours with a coat of Nailtek Foundation II to show you what it looks like in a matte finish. Lots of pictures, because I love the way it looks!

Wow! I have alot to talk about today, so let's get started. The lovely and gracious Kim, who owns Overall Beauty has made me a great deal to pass on to my readers (you don't have to be a follower, just someone who reads my blog). She is having a terrific sale right now on BB Couture polishes, buy 2 get one free with a limit of 2 free. So you could buy a total of 4 polishes and choose 2 more free. But for my readers Kim says, "If they add to the comments section that they are your reader they can get up to three free.. 6 bottles of polish PLUS three more for free." The sale runs from June 1-June 6. Add the names of your free polishes in the comment box. If you're not familiar with her web store, she has tons of other great products including her own line of mineral makeup, various scrubs and bath products, and much more. Also, use the code 47KMMS and you'll save $5.00 on orders over $30.00. I have never tried these polishes so I'm excited to get my order. Or should I say orders, because I caved twice over the weekend! Let me tell you, Kim has got to be one of the sweetest and most professional people I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She is very enthusiastic and funny, too. Her sale is in celebration of her birthday, which is tomorrow, so when you add your free polish choices in the comments box on your order page, make sure and wish her a Happy Birthday. Check out her blog, Thoughts of Beauty, for more information on her products.
Speaking of birthdays and BB Couture polish and matte finishes such as the ones I've been showing you the last couple of days in my Color Club posts...June is my birthday month also, and I wanted to make the prizes for Body & Soul's June contest a little extra special. I appreciate all of my readers and the friends I've made through my blog so if I'm going to have a celebration, I think you should be a part of it. Or at least 2 of you! I'll have 2 drawings this month and the prizes for each will be identical. I'll post a picture later this week when I receive all of the products, but here's what the prizes will include:
♦ 6-BB Couture polishes in:
Sea of Cortez
Balboa Beach Bunny (which Kim helped create!)
♦ 1-full sized bottle of Nubar's V For Men mattifying top coat
♦ Some other fun goodies from my favorite home town candy store, and more
Please read the details on the simple entry process in the 'June Contest' box in the upper right hand corner if you're interested in entering.
This has got to be the longest post I've ever made! Lastly, I swatched a few more of the Color Clubs that readers requested and mattified a few just for fun. Again, I do not recommend using Nailtek Foundation II if you plan on wearing the color for any length of time. It doesn't usually dry well. I just used it to show you the look with that type of finish. I usually use Nubar's V, but it's more expensive, so for the purpose of showing you the look, I used my cheaper product.
