American Made Creations Vinyl Decal Review - On My Car!!

I love to spotlight small businesses, especially ones owned and operated by my friends! If you've been a MBHM reader, you've certainly seen reviews of nail decals that I have featured by American Made Creations, run by my longtime nail gal pal, Shanel, and her fiance, Scott.

Here is my first AMC post, featuring nail decals AND car decals: Click HERE.

AMC nail vinyls are super high quality, affordable, and they offer custom designs, too. The best part about a small business is that they work hard to accommodate your requests - just shoot Shanel a message with what you're thinking (which is what I did with my new car decal) and she will work with you.

Now...on to the newest and greatest thing EVERRR!

Quick background story: In 2015, I bought a black Honda Accord. Which is the same car that pretty much everyone owns, LOL. In a parking lot, it can be hard to find! Here is the back:

Bland, yes?? Decaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallll!!

I actually saw a monogram on a car recently, but it was tiny and on the back, bottom, corner of the back windshield. Cute, yes. Statement making? Not so much.

GO BIG OR GO HOME, I say!

I asked Shanel to make a monogram for my car. It is 11 inches tall, which was the max available. It's perfect! AMC stocks some really unique vinyls, so I asked Shanel for a couple suggestions, which she then mocked up online and sent to me to see which I liked the best.

So I got thru most of the application process without taking a pic, then I thought better of it!

The decal comes with a protective sheet over a white backing. Peel off the backing a place on a cleaned surface, then slowly peel off the top, as you can see me doing above.

Since this was a big piece, I applied from the middle and then used my towel to rub the surface flat before I peeled off the top. It is slightly off center, which is totally my fault (LOL, my bad) but from driving distance, looks peeeeeeeerfect.

I am SO in love with this decal. My car looks awesome and will be so easy to find now!!

Please give Shanel and American Made Creations a Like and a follow! They also do shirts, totes, and other clothing in addition to stickers and vinyls. I've also seen customized koozies (coozies? those things for cups...you know what I mean) and holiday themed presents.

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:


Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.


Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.


Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?



I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!



The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!

PS: Fuck Trump!

My Top 10 Zoya Polishes!!

Zoya is a nail polish company that you can be proud to use!

Why? Not only are they 5-free, but every year they do an "earth day" promo, where you can purchase Zoya polish at half price - IF you promise to send them back old bottles of polish to be recycled properly by Zoya.  You can also donate your polishes to a local charity and it still counts as part of their promotion.

Here are the details:


With over 300 shades rooted in a healthy philosophy, it’s no surprise that we’re committed to helping you green your beauty routine! That’s why each year we give you the opportunity to exchange any old nail polish bottles that you may have laying around your house collecting dust, or that are not BIG5FREE formulas, for brand new toxin-free* Zoya Nail Polish shades. You can rest assured that your unwanted polishes will be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.
