China Glaze "Rich & Famous"

I'm in loveeee with this color for summer! Rich & Famous is one of my favorite formulas that China Glaze makes. It doesn't have any shimmer, which sometime I like. It stayed on amazing with a base coat & top coat. If you are looking for a great summer color, I'd look out for this! In the five days that I wore it, I got tons of compliments on this color!

Pink & Blue Splatter Nails

Hello everyone! I just wanted to share the nails that I came up with this morning because I'm in love with them! I used China Glaze's "Shower Together" and "Flip-Flop Fantasy". I've gotta say, I love these two colors together! :)

e.l.f. Shimmer Eye Pencil "Plum Passion"

I was looking for a good purple pencil to recreate a look I found on Pinterest. Let's just say, this is not it! It is very hard to work with and to get good color, you have to press down really hard. That's definitely not good for the eye area! I haven't tried any other colors of e.l.f.'s shimmer eye pencils, but they all seem to be very hard and not easy to work with.

Shoe Haul!

I think it would be great to start branching my blog into fashion as well. Especially since I've been buying more clothes and shoes since I've been trying not to buy makeup. ;) Let me just start off my saying I found AMAZING deals this week on some shoes!

First, I found some Sofia Vergara wedges at KMart that were originally $35 and I got them for only $12! Who could pass that up?! Especially since they are SO cute!

I know I don't need anymore shoes, but I couldn't pass those wedges up! Or the sandals I saw at Sam's! Sam's had Steve Madden Sandals for only $15! Of course, I bought two pairs! :)

Let's just say, I'm going to try not to buy shoes for a while. Haha.

China Glaze "Custom Kicks"

I found this color at Ulta a few months ago, even though it was a part of the Kicks Collection. It's the perfect color for summer! It's a bright blue color, but when you're in the sun, it has a gorgeous gold glow. If I didn't have work this summer, I would definitely be sporting this on my nails more often. I'll just be keeping it on my toes! :)

4th of July Eyes!

 So, to start off I did my basic winged liner. I just winged it a little more than I normally do.
 Next, I took this bright red color from my Coastal Scents palette and applied that with a liner brush.
 This is what it should look like. I applied it about 1/3 of the way along my black liner.
 Next I took NYX's Milk jumbo pencil with a liner brush and applied it the same way. After that I used Milani's blue liner for the blue portion.
This is the final look! I touched up the black after I used the colors just to make sure it looked clean. I absolutely love this look because it's patriotic without being over the top! :)

4th of July Nails!

Happy 4th of July everyone! I just did my nails this morning, but I loved how they turned out! I used China Glaze's Ruby Deer, Man Hunt, and White on White to complete this look. Along with a lot of glitters, I think this turned out perfectly! Let me know what you think? :)

Dollar Tree Find!

I found all of these cute little nail art bottles that have glitter, microbeads, and things like that in them. I've never seen them at the Dollar Tree before, so I had to pick them up and try them!

Round Glitters

Rectangular Glitters

Sometimes you can really find cool things at the dollar store! & right now, I'm absolutely loving these nail art accessories!

China Glaze Crackle Problems

Has anyone else's China Glaze crackles gotten all thick and hard to work with? I tried putting nail polish thinner into it, but it didn't do anything. It kind of sucks because I have pretty much every color of the crackle. :( Does anyone have any tips on how to work with it?

China Glaze "Kalahari Kiss"

With Flash

Without Flash
This was the nail polish that I was extremely excited about from the Safari collection. When I put it on my nails, ehh, it wasn't want I was expecting. It's a lot more yellow than it looks in the bottle, which I don't think looks good on my skin tone. It's almost like a dijon mustard type color. It does wear good. I haven't had any chips yet and I've been wearing it for about two days. I don't think this will be the color I'll be reaching for, sadly.

I found all of the colors from the Safari collection that I wanted at Sally's! I'm so excited to try them & I'll be painting my nails pretty much every day, haha. Are any of you interested in this collection? I know this is one collection that I've been over excited for!
