Hello everyone! I’ve been MIA again when it was nearing my birthday and is also my nephew’s (March 6). I’ll have to make a post of everything I got relating to my blog! I hope everyone’s been good! I’ve been saying I wasn’t gonna go away and I always do so before I “come back” I figured I’d post a recent nail design I did (:
Hello bloggesphere! It’s been super cold, snowy and icy here in VA so I’ve been doing nothing but nails and then taking it all off (Damn, I’m sorry cuticles /:).
I’ve used nail pearls for this and yes, it sucked! I’m sure they won’t last long but I’ll enjoy the hour or two I have until they break off lol
(Left to right)
Base – Sinful Shine in “Prosecco”
Seafoam- Sinful Colors in ” Nice Stems”
Yellow-Sinful Colors in ” Solar Flux”
Base and Top Coat– Sally Hansen “Double Duty”
Nail Pearls- Gold
It’s that time of the year again where we rush last minute to show our love for one another/vomit at the site of people swallowing each other’s faces! Here is my spin on V-Day. I wanted to do something different than the usual pinks and reds… And yes, that is a Valentine’s snack cake and yes, I ate it after this o_o
Base: Sinful Colors in “Nice Stems”
Striping /Accent: Sinful Shine in “Wisp”
Glitz Overlay: Sinful Colors in “Love Sprinkles”
I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of their year so far! Enjoy single awareness month/V-Day everyone!
After the holidays although broke, I’ve been scrounging around for deals. While in Kmart, I noticed more and more yellow stickers as I was breezing through the aisles and made multiple stops. I’ve never noticed before how many markdowns on cosmetics they do!
Care to take a gander?
Elf Eyelid Primer in “Pearl” – $0.75
I’m not going to lie, I don’t use expensive primer at all. I actually use elf’s eyelid primer but the nude colored one which is the only kind I’ve seen until now. Maybe I’m blind? I’ve never seen it in pearl before.
Here you see the difference between the two. All in all, the original is my favorite due to the fact that it’s matte. The problem with the pearl is that it’s shiny and glittery like an eyeshadow and it took me a twice build up to cover it. It works though, you just have to work with it.
Rimmel Liquid Cheek Tint in “Pop of Pink” – $1.64
Above you can see it blended and unblended on my forearm. It took a twice build up to get it to really show much color but it doesn’t take much. It goes on smoothly and blends on the skin perfectly and looks very natural.
Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in “Stargazer” and “Solstice”-$1.49 each
Generally, I’m not much of a shimmery lip product person but the price for me was worth a shot to see if I could actually find something gleaming I’d like.
I had to post this so ya’ll could see my natural no flash skin tone and lip color.For some reason with flash, I end up multiple shades darker.
The” Stargazer” added a champagne/taupe tint and “Solstice” pulled my undertones for a deeper red. The shimmer surprisingly is pretty muted and the application was pretty smooth. One thing I absolutely hate about certain products is when they do that weird, cake like rolling and this doesn’t thankfully!
Sinful Colors in”Galax-sea”. Sinful Shine in “Prosecco” and “Wisp” – $1.49 each
Everyone and their momma’s know that I absolutely adore sinful colors no matter what collection. I was happy to find some of the “Sinful Shine” because it holds true to the collection even before a topcoat! I know they retail at $1.99 but cheaper is still better ^^
Fergie Nail Polish in “Hollywood Walk of Fame” – $1.74
Out of the Fergie collection, I’ve only used the gel liner (which ended up replacing my Maybelline Eye Studio gel liner at like half the price with same lasting power). This is just a clear base with a shit ton of colored stars. It’ll definitely be an overlay on a solid.
I hope you guys check out your local areas too and end up with dope finds!
Soon I should be posting up a NYX haul and maybe a few others. I’ve gotten things recently and just haven’t gotten around it em.
Thanks for stopping by!
I know, I know… I’ve slacked for months and months and Christmas has finally passed! Before I fill you guys in on what’s been going on (including my Christmas), I wanted to post on this.
During my last minute Christmas shopping attempt, I spotted the new 2015 line from Sinful Colors. I’d figured I’d post on it since it seems like around the Web, it’s been spotted but not tried and tested so here it is!
Speckles: Baby pink
This is the base and top coat I used. Pretty Damn good find at TJ Maxx for 3 bucks! It goes on smoothly and dries quick!
As you can see, I used a yellow for my “accent nail” to see what it looks like with and without a color base. Yes, I know I could have chosen darker but I was in a “yellow” mood so that’s what ya’ll get!
I know I’ve been blogging for a while on here now and yes, I know my cuticles still look like shit but you’ll live lol.
I SHOULD be making more thrifting posts in the near future and everything else. If any of my followers are still out there looking at this, bless you for forgiving my failing as a blogger<3 I hope all of your holidays have and will be great! Thanks for reading!
