I did this makeup to get ready for a date, and I also wanted to try some new products I had bought before I left Boston, including the Emerald Pretty Eyeshadow palette from Tarina Tarantino. Full portrait after the jump.Read more »
Glitter! If there’s one thing I missed more than doing my nails, it was doing my nails with glitter! I’ve been loving this Love & Beauty nail polish despite it’s horribly sheer application because of how good it looks paired up with other colors.
While that hardly makes this nail polish worth the purchase on its own, it’s definitely a plus for me. I originally …Read more »
If you shop at Forever 21, Love & Beauty nail polishes are a must buy. They’re so affordable and come in such a huge array of colors that it’s hard not to grab at least one. I probably have at least 10 of these in my collection, and I adore each and every one.
While they’re not the best quality, they’re definitely a bargain if …Read more »
Yay! After weeks of horrible, crappy nails I’m finally back with a fun, easy NOTD. This look was done using the nail polishes listed below and a long striper nail art brush. It took me all of five minutes since precision wasn’t exactly key here and resulted in something unique and fun!
Get this look:
1. Prime your nails with a base coat.
2. Apply …
Finally! I’m back with another FOTD thanks to the speedy recovery and cooperation of my nails. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done anything to them and they seem to have taken to their luxurious, toxin free environment wonderfully. I’d say they’re almost ready for some salon magic and major re-shaping! Woohoo!
In the meantime, I decided to paint on a quick coat of …Read more »
A few days before I absolutely destroyed my nails, I purchased this nail polish from Rite Aid. I was randomly perusing through the make-up aisles (dangerous, I know) and came across the CQ nail polish line. It featured some really gorgeous, muted, darker pastel shades ideal for darker skin tones for around $2 a pop.
I originally grabbed about 4 of these, but got the …Read more »
If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been doing any NOTD’s lately, blame it on my nails. I’ve always been envious of people with strong, healthy nails mostly because mine shred the moment I’m not consciously careful of them. They chip, bend, break — you name it, they do it.
Even at their best state, they’re still super flawed and have an irritating tendency to …Read more »
Colored eyebrows? You betcha! I don’t know why I’ve never done this before… I broke my colored eyebrow cherry at IMATS and absolutely LOVED how it looked so I thought I’d give my eyebrows a make-over again!
While I, personally, don’t have a problem wearing a look like this out, I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. If you’re interested in something equally festive …Read more »
Excuse my tired face; I’ve had a really long day but I really wanted to get this Independence Day FOTD done tonight, and I know Anisha’s got one ready too!

TA-DA!! I’ve officially broken my Sugarpill virginity with the new-ish Heartbreaker palette! This look was actually very quick to do, on account of the eyeshadow being so easy to work with. Also, I decided that I’m going to start naming my FOTD’s after various deities and figures in different pantheons (Greek, Roman, etc), because it takes too long for me to think of relevant titles …Read more »
