Sally Girl Baked Eyeshadow #388124

Sally Girl shadows are amazing! If you have never tried them you should! They are very inexpensive and they are good quality. The only thing I don't like about their baked shadows is that they don't have a color name; they are just given a number. Other than that I love it. This color is very coppery and shimmery. It's gorgeous! If you ever stop by Sally's I would reccomend buying this color and trying it out!

Sonia Kashuk Large Crease Brush

I love this brush! It's very soft and fluffy. It really makes a difference when you are trying to blend out your shadows so there is no harsh lines. I've had this brush for about six months now and there is no shedding or anything wrong with it. I don't think you need to spend a lot of money on makeup brushes. It's just that you need to find things that work for you!

e.l.f. Beauty Book: Bright Eye Edition

I bought this this week and I LOVE IT! It was regularly $5 but I got it for only $1.25! :) I bought this because of the navy blue, dark brown, and the purples. Let me tell you, if I bought this for five dollars I would be extremely happy because these shadows are SO pigmented!
Here's the inside of the "book". The shadows are HUGE. I don't use that type of eyeliner that is included so I don't know how it works.
These are the top four colors. Only one swipe and no primer!
Here's the middle four colors.
These are the last four colors.

4th of July Nails

First, I picked out my base colors that I wanted to use. They are: Frostbite, Pelican Gray, and Ruby Deer.
Next, I painted my nails with two coats in the pattern I wanted them.
After that, on the red and blue, I put China Glaze's Platinum Pieces crackle.
I'm going to do a splatter pattern on the gray. So to keep it from becoming too much to clean up, I put tape around my cuticles.
Just put your colors on a plate or bowl. I actually used a lot more than this. I'm using the same blue and red I used as a base on two of my nails. The white I'm using is White on White by China Glaze.
This is what it turns out like! Just take a straw and dip it into the polish. I would recommend using one hard blow to blow the polish onto your nails. I would just experiment and see what works for you. It actually took me a while to figure out what works best for me :)
After, take the tape off and you will probably have a little bit of a mess. I just use a brush and dip it in polish remover and that will take most of it off.
The end product! I hope you all enjoy :)
