26 Apr

bird nail canes from bornpretty!

They’re only $4.99 and for that price the quality is excellent!!!

^ these are swatches WITHOUT primer!!

The pigmentation is very good. No chalky colors, all the colors are easy to blend and soft. the texture actually kind of reminds me of NYX eyeshadows! there are 2 other palettes, one of blues and the other is pinks/purples. The only downside is that the packaging is cheap.. no  biggie, but there could have at least been some plastic shrink wrap around the palette! Ah, well, for $5 why complain?

I hope I see this at another Walgreens soon! I actually grabbed the last one on the shelf from my local store.

Nail Deco Of The Week #87 + swatch

13 Mar

china glaze – for audrey (my favoriteeee nail polish ♥)

china glaze – white on white

color club – front row diva

andddd, last but not least!

WOOSTER & PRINCE‘s pretty personal accessories from katerine d. :)

they’re so cute! the patterns are designed by amy ormond who was inspired by vintage prints.

emery boards come in a trio pack ($4.95) and the pocket mirror ($5.95) has a message inside!

they have other designs as well. :) just thought i’d mention that the mirrors will need some T.L.C. because it’s made of paper.. so if you’re the type of person who prefers to be able to just chuck it in a bag, this might not be for you! :o on the other hand, they are thin and compact and have a very detailed art featured on every inch of the product :) i think these would make really nice gifts / party favors.

Nail Deco Of The Week #85 + mini review/tut

13 Mar

Saw Lacquerized‘s monarch butterfly nails and had to try it for myself!!! :)

mine didn’t turn out as nice as hers though :(

shouldn’t have rushed ._. maybe i will try this mani again in the future and make each nail more uniform + draw the contours better!

color club – wild at heart
sally hansen – hidden treasure
art deco – black
china glaze – white on white

byebye mani…

clean!

now moving on to the 4 way nail buffer that Jessica from Born Pretty sent me :)

step 1: file nails! i wouldn’t recommend if you want to file a lot because this is a very fine grain. it’s better for touch ups, after 1 or 2 uses you probably will have to dispose of it.

step 2,3: sand nail surface!

step 4: buff surface :)

dull :(

shiny!

i wouldn’t recommend using this too often (eg every day).. you are sanding off your nail after all– so you’re thinning your nail :o though you probably won’t be doing that anyway! one buffing is enough for 2-3 weeks for me~

Nail Deco Of The Week #84

3 Dec

Hi everyone! Sorry for being MIA for the past few weeks. :( I’ve been really busy with work and school. My current work place allow allows for neutral pinks and nudes for nail color so that’s why I haven’t been doing any new designs. ;_; Anyway! I managed to do something this Wednesday. (I’ll have to take it off soon for work.. darn..)

 

Color Club – Vintage Couture

Also using some of the mini flat back pearls from Born Pretty (see next post for review)
