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…

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.

$5 Travel Face Brush!

18 Nov

One of my favorite makeup brushes I own is my forever 21 travel retractable face brush!  This brush was only $4.80, and is super soft.  It is very versatile and can apply blush, powder, and much more.  The packaging is cute, but kind of flimsy.  The lid clicks on to the bottom a bit weirdly, but I don’t think that that really changes how much I love this brush.  For about $5 this is a brush everyone should have.

31 Day Nail Challenge-Day 10-Gradient Nails

17 Nov

Today I finally  did my gradient nails!  I used Zoya in Megan, China Glaze in Spontaneous, and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Gray Area.  I will put the link to the tutorial I used at the bottom of the post.  Obviously, my version didn’t come out as well.  I guess it is an okay first try, but it is a bit too stripy.  I also got the colors mixed up on my right hand.  The sponge I used was pretty big so I got a lot of polish around my cuticles, and I just did this mani so it hasn’t pealed off yet.
