Happy Holidays!

25 Dec

The holidays have been such a blur, and I haven’t had time to make any real posts:-(  Stay tuned for reviews, 31 Day nail challenges, and much more.




e.l.f. Little Black Book Warm Edition-Eye Edition in Warm

16 Dec

Once again, e.l.f. surprises me with an amazing makeup product this is super cheep.  This 48 color eye shadow (each shadow is small) palette is only $5!  You can buy this awesome palette here.  I really like the color selection in this palette, there are a bunch of neutral shades and some more colorful shades for when you want something different.  The pigmentation is overall very good, some shades are better than others.  This is a palette I couldn’t live with out!























31 Day Nail Challenge-Day 12-Stripes

9 Dec

My stripes didn’t come out as I had planned, to say the least.  By now, most of you have learned that I am horrible at nail art, and today is no exception.  I used love & beauty’s (or Forever 21) mauve and light grey ($2.80) each.  These polishes were over very nice, and only needed one coat!  A little bit of leftover purple got on my nail art brush, so the stripes on my left thumb have a little extra “pizzazz” .







Any tips on how I can improve my nail art skills?




Super Easy Snow Nails!

5 Dec

Today I did a super easy snow mani, and used  Confetti Ice Ice baby over China glaze Sea Spray.  For my final look I used one coat of Sea Spray (thats all I needed :-)!), and three coats of Ice Ice baby for a super glittery result.  Both of these polishes are very good quality and are easy to work with.  I really love this mani, and it was super easy!  Sorry my hands look really orange in the pictures…



Just China Glaze Sea Spray, I only needed on coat!





One Coat of Ice Ice Baby over Sea Spray




Two Coats of Ice Ice Baby over Sea Spray





Three Coats of Ice Ice Baby over Sea Spray, with one coat of Seche Vite top coat

31 Day Nail Challenge-Day 11-Polka Dots

24 Nov

Today I did my Polka Dot nails, with Essie’s Ballet slippers and a random Sally’s beauty mini polish.  The dots turned out okay, considering it was only my second time doing this pattern.
