Hi Lovlies!

This is one of my -Days Till Christmas Posts (we’re on day 10?). So merry tenth day! As you can guess, this post is all about my new obsession over iridescent nail polish, but I’ll do it anyway….

On the 10th day of Christmas my followers gave to me…..10 shiny nails!

First of all it was a total coincidence that on the tenth day I chose nail polish, and you have ten fingers so….yeah (this is where you laugh), but I am honestly obsessed with this new type of nail polish. So many of my friends came up to me and said one moment they looked gold, and the next they were blue, and in that moment I became addicted. Since my original purchase of a Sephore version of the Chanel Peridot 531 I’ve bought three more polishes in pink/gold, blue/purple, and green/gold! I truly am in love with this trend and I hope you guys might try it sometime! If you want to try it or tried it please leave a comment!

P.S. Can you guys start to leave comments on what you want to see me post in the new year? Thanks so much! xoxo

On the 13th day of Christmas My Followers Gave To Me……

Hi lovelies! I’ve missed you for about 4 months (good god!) because of the start of school (start of uniforms), much more homework in this grade, and just learning how to balance it all! I’ve missed you guys so much and I hope you feel the same! My friend (Initials MM 😉 helped me get motivated to start up again, so I’m really excited! My new theme is to post everyday under the theme…..drumroll please…..13 days till Christmas! Everyday I’ll post something that I either want for Christmas or something I bought around the season, the segment will finish off on Christmas Day with a huge Christmas Haul! So…..

On the 13th day of Christmas my followers gave to me 13 flawless lashes! Mascara of course!

My new favorite mascara (of all time) is Benefit They’re Real mascara ($23.00), and the name surely lives up to the results! I should’ve know it was great when all the workers in Sephora stopped me and told me I’d fall in love with it, and I guess they were right! I’ve never received so many mascara compliments in one day, and I’ve never felt so satisfied with a mascara purchase. It lengthens and volumizes making it a double threat that can’t be beat. Sadly I don’t have time to review tonight, but I will make sure to post one soon!

This mascara is amazing and I’d be so happy if just a few of you guys tried it! If you do tell me what you think (be honest)! Well until tomorrow….

DIY: Ombré Nails

 

 

IMG_4471

Ombré nails is a trend that I knew about for the longest time,  but never could master! I tried to achieve the look with a makeup sponge but that was a total fail. But this time I got it, and I love them. They’re really simple to do and they also turn out amazing in the end! Tips before you start, you can tape around you nails or even liquid glue and let it dry (sounds weird but it works perfectly), to reduce the amount of nail polish that’ll be on the skin around nail, and second is that these nails took me a while so make sure you have time!

Materials:

  • Two nail polishes (I found that the ombré works nicer when you choose the same color in different shades)
  • A clear top coat
  • a toothpick, bobby pin
  • aluminum foil
  • a sponge
  • tape, liquid glue
  • nail polish remover
  • Q-tip

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. First paint your whole nail with the lighter shade of the two polishes, or the bottom color on your nail, and let it dry.
  2. Take your aluminum foil and put a medium amount of the two nail polishes parallel to each other.
  3. IMG_4460Take your toothpick, and blend the two colors, leaving some of the two polishes in their original stateIMG_4462
  4. Now take your sponge and you place it directly on the polishes and then take it directly off without any dragging. IMG_4463
  5. Place the sponge directly on your nails, and press firmly, then take take the sponge off.IMG_4464
  6. Next you can take your sponge and fill in lights and darks in on the nail as you please.
  7. If you did not put on tape or glue then this is where you would take nail polish remover and your Q-tip and clean around the edges. If you did choose to protect the edges then peel off the tape or glue.
  8. Lastly put a clear top coat over the look to make sure it lasts long and looks nice!

I love this look and I’ll surely be doing it again! I hope you enjoyed this nail DIY! And comment on your on how it turned out for you and how you like the look! Thanks! Keep blogging ❤

Makeup Review: Urban Decay Fun Palette

Ok I decided to do another favorite of mines, a makeup review! I got this palette as a present from my parents and I don’t use it very it very often but I plan to now after discovering how much I enjoy the shadows! Here we go!

Casing: A cute thin pouch, easy to use zipper, quick and easy access to the shadows!

Pricing: Not exactly sure what the price was since it was a present, but currently at Sephora a similar palate is $36.00 (Yikes! Hope they got it for less!)

IMG_4395

It even comes with a really cute lip gloss!

Product: Overall I am pleased with this palate, although the colors are not very easy to wear on any ordinary day. But the quality and look of each of the shadows is great.

  • Maui Wowie: Glittery, thick, and pops. I feel like I could combine this eye shadow with any of the other colors in the palette. It blends nicely and is one of my favorite in the palette.
  • Deep End: Bright, different, and sheer. This eyeshadow is very out there so make sure to blend and pair it up wisely so one does not get the clown effect (haha).
  • Sellout: white, light, and nude.  Sellout is a very white eyeshadow, or it could also be considered nude. I don’t favor it very much because of its lack of blending and the way that it is on my skin.
  • Fishnet: metallic, glittery, sheer. Fishnet is a more sheer version of the Freakshow shadow. It also has more of a glitter than Freakshow. I wouldn’t use this color very often because of personal preferences.
  • Stray Dog: natural, matte, muted. This shadow is my favorite out of the whole palette. Its the most natural and I have a greater chance of wearing this shadow. I love how it looks once applied, and it would go great with any liner.
  • Freakshow: metallic, bright, retro. Freakshow is a very metallic color that lays on thick. Its not a sheer shadow at all. This one also pops so watch how you apply it and how you compliment it.

Overall: This is a great palette but you have to know what looks good on your skin and complexion. The only reason I wouldn’t have bought this palette myself is because of the colors. I favor natural shadows more. But other than that they are all great shadows! I would recommend this to a friend!

Please leave you comments on this review and if you think you’d purchase it! I’d also love it if you would request more reviews and post ideas for the future! Thanks!

Makeup Review: Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Luminizer

I went to the mall last weekend and I meant to buy outfits, but I literally couldn’t find anything, so I went into Sephora and I spent around an hour in there and bought one product….Yea I’m a little shopping challenged. Well anyway I went in looking for a product that I could put over my whole face that would give my skin a  glow, and I found just that! Lets get to the review!

Casing: The holder is easy to open and close, light, simple, and basic.

Price: $12.95, a price I was willing to pay for hoping I’d use it everyday, and since the product is coming from Sephora

IMG_4259IMG_4260IMG_4261

IMG_4267Product: I absolutely love this product! It does exactly what I wanted it to do! It covers my skin smoothly and it’s even. Although there is some glitter in it, it spreads well so you don’t have spots of glitter. Its very sheer, light, and casual, and I would recommend it as something you put on daily to to finish any look! As you can see in the two picture of my hand, its very natural and good for any casual or extravagant look.

IMG_4270IMG_4273

Main Point: I would reccomend this to a friend, and I will most likely be buying another once I use this one.

Thanks for reading, and please comment any of your thoughts!

FAVE NAIL COLORS!

I adore this blue and the orange is such a good accent (since it’s blue’s complimentary color)! The blue is For Audrey (China Glaze) and the orange is A Roll in the Hague (O.P.I.). Coincidentally the nail polish matches my cracked iPhone, and I just love my nail polish collection!
