Here's another (super cute) nails of the week!

 I got my inspiration from some youtube gurus. I think this panda design is super kawaii! It's also real easy to do and all you need is white & black polish to work with. It makes me want to paint other cute animals, maybe cats next time...hee hee

What I used:
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails, Hard As Wraps (Base)
Sinful Colors in Snow Me White
Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in 430 Black Satin
Seche Vite & Clear (base & top coat)

Watch these video to see how to achieve these Panda nails!

August Birchbox!

It's that time again!

So I was excited once again to receive this months Birchbox. I heard a lot of people weren't too happy about this month...I kinda like what I got this month.

What was in this months? Check out the photo below to see!

I like the June Jacobs - Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque. I tried it out last night and it was pretty nice! My face was super soft and clean! Plus it smells really yummy!

I never heard of Ouidad - Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel. My boyfriend is pretty excited about this gel. I think I'll give it to him since we live in NYC and the humidity is crazy!

I was pretty happy to get the Shaveworks - The Cool Fix! I've been suffering from some serious ravor burns, so hoping this will heal my burns!

Can't wait to tried out the Smashbox - Photo Finish Foundation Primer! (I already have so many others! The more the merrier!)

As an extra, I received a Twistband - Hair Tie. let's see how that thing holds up my hair! lol It looks like a string with a knot tied to the ends.... -_-

Check out my last months July's Birchbox here!

So here's another nails of the week! I went to my local Walgreens to find Clairol's Shimmer Lights Shampoo, cause I bleached my hair! But that's a whole other post! lol So I didn't find the shampoo but I did end up getting a nail polish and Suave Professionals Almond and Shea Butter Shampoo & Conditioner. (which I'm loving!)

 So the nail polish I got was Sinful Colors in 953 Unicorn. It's a bright matte yellow color. It just stood out to me than the rest of the other colors so I had to buy it! Plus I only have two types of yellow polishes and I thought I needed more. It cost $1.99. (prices may vary)

This polish is super bright and pretty. Cost is cheap! There's lots of colors to choose from. Just about any drugstore carries the brand.

Some colors are very thin, you would need more than 3 coats. Not that long lasting!

Without Flash!

It took me about 5 coats to get this color opaque. But it turned out looking very nice on my nails. I used Seche Vite base and top coat.

I think I own more Sinful Color nail polishes than any other! haha

Here's one last pic! I was eating a banana moon pie and was like oh my nail polish matched the moon pie! haha

Thanks for reading!


P.S. Will update on my hair in another post. I was trying to go light and I had to bleach it! Its a work in progress so I'm trying to be patience! Goal is to go Medium Red Neutral Blonde! ^_^

Just thought I should show you guys my Nails Of The Week!

I got inspired by Eki's blog. (btw if you don't know who Eki is, then you've been living under a rock! lol) She did this super cute pink glitter tip on her nails. The color she used was OPI I lily Love You shade and as a base color Zoya Dharma.

 I used what I had and I think it came out pretty cute!

I used Zoya Shay as a base color, Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor and Wet n Wild Fireworks for the tip of the nails. I waited a bit for it to dry and then blend it a little higher up to give it that gradient effect. 

I will be trying this again with my other glitter nail polishes. I just wished I had pink glitter for this, since pink is one of my favorite colors.

Well hopefully my next post will be something else other than nails, but who am I kidding?! ^_^

FOTD (Pic Heavy)

I haven't done a makeup look like this in a long time. I try not to use much makeup in the summer time cause it's just too hot for it! But today wasn't that bad so I decided to use my Coastal Scents 88 palettes.

I feel like I haven't been using them in such a long time! I blame it on the Urban Decay Naked Palette! I've been using that baby non-stop! lol Anyways today I did a green smokey eye using the Metal Mania Palette and some of the browns in the 88 Warm Palette.

So this is the look!

I think it came out super pretty! I don't wear greens that offend but I feel like I would now cause green brings out my brown eyes.

Revlon Color Stay in 180 Sand Beige
Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Roller (as concealer)
Maybelline Fit Pressed Powder in 130 Buff Beige
Sita Sun Powder in shade 01 (as bronzer)

          ~Checks & Highlight~
Tarte Park Princess (as bronzer and blush)
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Peaceful
Stila All Over Simmer

NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
Coastal Scents 88 Metal Mania & Warm Palette
UD Eyeliner Pencil in Zero
Stila Smudge Pot in Black
Loreal Voluminous

NYX Lipliner in 810 Natural
Loreal Lipstink in 800 Fairest Nude

I know that's a lot of makeup, but I don't usually wear this much.

So let me know your fotd!

P.S. My camera is washing out the colors. There more brighter then what you see on the pics!

What I'm Loving...

At the moment is the Maybelline Falsies Mascara in Drama Black, water-proof formula.

My eyes tend to water on me. Weather it's from the weather or allergies, it just waters up and I get so frustrated. It also seems to mess up my eye makeup. Then my mascara smudges on me, a lot. And no one loves raccoon eyes expect for raccoons...haha

Anyways this mascara is super great for my lashes. Its smudge proof and long lasting. What I really love about this mascara is that it hold my curl really well. I tend to lose my curl with other mascaras. Even after using a lash curler. I also don't like using an eye lash curler after applying mascara, cause I hate when my lashes stick to the curler...ahhh

I think this is by far one of my favorite water-proof mascara!

I'm also liking the curve of the wand. The formula is pretty okay, it doesn't do much for thickening my lashes. But that's okay since I wanted more of a hold for my curl.

I use this mascara for my top lashes and for my bottoms I use Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes.

As you can see from the pics how well it holds my curls. Long lasting too!

Hope I didn't leave anything out...

Thanks for reading!
