Floral Nail Art

Posted by Starlett Approved at 1:12 PM 0 comments
Hey babes!  How is everyone doing? Awesome I hope ;). Today's post is going to be short and sweet because my brain isn't working right now lol. So I'm just going to throw down the picture of my nails here :)
I really love floral designs and I love how these came out. To me the beauty of a floral print anything is in the imperfections.  No need for perfect lines and brush strokes.  Another great thing...you don't need a lot of tools.  You can create a beautiful floral design with just the nail polish brush and a toothpick. 
For these I used a small dotter, a tiny detail brush and a small triangle shaped brush (not sure how to describe it). Here's a list of the polishes I used:

New York Color SideWalkers 
Wet n Wild On A Trip
New York Color Lavender Cupcake
H & M Beauty Bandit
Essie Mesmerize
Essie Bikini So Teeny
H & M Something Blue
Wet n Wild Candy-Licious
New York Color City Sweets Pink
Milani Cosmetics Rapid Cherry
Sephora by O.P.I Caught With My Khakis Down
Sephora Military Jacket

Thanks For Stopping By!!

Red Lips Are A Girls' OTHER Best Friend

Posted by Starlett Approved at 1:21 PM 0 comments
Heeeeeyyyyy, I'm finally doing another lip color post! YAY!!  I felt like it was a little too late to try to do my current fall/winter favorites.  If you don't think so and you want me to do one, let me know in the comments below.  I will definitely oblige.  So I figured with Valentines Day approaching it would be a good time to share with you, all my red lip colors. 
Let's get a closer look at each one...



Sephora Cream Lip Stain Always Red 01 It's the perfect shade of red and has a velvety matte finish.  



Wet n Wild Red Velvet It's so vibrant IRL and has a creamy matte finish.







Wet n Wild Stoplight Red It's very similar to Red Velvet just a little darker.

 





                                                     




Sephora Lip Attitude Chic C13 Best described as a strawberry red with a glossy finish.






Milani Cherry Crave A gorgeous cherry red with a metallic finish.








Wet n Wild megalast liquid lip color Cherry On Top It's a nice deep cherry red when applied.  After it dries it lightens a little bit with a matte finish.








Wet n Wild Cherry Bomb A wine red shade with a cream matte finish.








Milani Black Cherry It's name is the best way to describe it. A vampy black cherry shade with a glossy finish.  







I hope you enjoyed this post, I had fun doing it.  I'm a makeup junkie that gravitates towards lip products and nail polish.  So you will definitely see more posts like this one in the future :).
I was a little iffy about including Black Cherry because it's so dark it looks purple.  I swatched it alongside Red Velvet and one of my purple lipsticks and it looked more red than purple in my opinion.

Which one(s) do you like the most? My personal favorites are Always Red, Red Velvet and Cherry Bomb.

Thanks For Stopping By!

Going with a Classic

Happy New Year, Beautiful!! 
Hey there, I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year.  2013 ended eh for me, I was sick and it was nasty.  It left me a bit blah, so I decided to do something simple for today's post.  I thought it was only fitting to begin the new year with what started all of this...nail art.  To be more specific leopard print nail art.
In 2011 I reacquainted myself with nail art, after a very long hiatus lol, because I wanted leopard print on my nails.  Now it's a classic nail design, right there with the french manicure.  But always feeling new with the countless number of color combos you can do.  For this design I used O.P.I. Don't Pretzel My Buttons (a serious lemming I'm so happy it's finally mine), Sephora by O.P.I. Caught With My Khakis Down, and China Glaze Mingle with Kringle.  I have a couple gold polishes and Mingle with Kringle is DEFINITELY my favorite.  Do you see it's gorgeousness?  It's the perfect gold!!!  I feel sorry for my other golds because they are seriously about to get neglected lol.  

What was your gateway design into nail art?  I'd love to know, let me know in the comments below.

Thanks For Stopping By!
