Recent Obession: Black French Tips :)

Photobucket

Hey guys :)
So i wanted to share with you my recent manicure (on myself) Every now and then i get tired of a plain color polish over my nails. I decided to do a french tip. As i opened my drawer of nail art things (composed of 2 nail art polishes in black and white and a bunch of nail stickers) I was about to reach for the for the white, but then i saw my black nail art polish. I thought "hey, why not" I decided to paint it on my nails.

Photobucket
After it was dry, i stretched out my hand and saw that i REALLY loved it! It was SO chic and edgy. Even though the "French Tip" is a feminine style, the black contrast makes it really rocker chic. I absolutely LOVE IT and im crazy obsessed with it. Ive been wearing it on and off for the past month. I would recommend this to someone with longer nails though. I feel that with long nails, it elongates the nails but with shorter nails, it kinda shortens it.

So what's your opinion on Black French tips? leave it in the comments below:)

till later guys :)

Spring Lips: MAC - Fresh Salmon

Photobucket

Hey Guys :)
So this is my 4th installment of my "Spring Lips" series. This post is going to be about MAC's Fresh Salmon. This is unfortunately limited edition so sorry to those who cant get a hold of it but ive heard that a lot of people are getting these at CCO's.

Photobucket

This is a rather unique shade actually, ive tried to dupe it as much as i can but the closest ive come to a dupe is Maybelline's Peachy Scene. So anyway, this is a frost lipstick but its actually pretty pigmented. It has a Salmon base but it sheens coral. it also has a golden shimmer to it which make it a great transition color from Spring to Summer. If you find a good dupe for it, PLEASE let me know :D

Photobucket

So how do you feel about this color? let me know in the comments :)

Check out my last post of my "Spring Lips" series about MAC's Chatterbox

For a reference, here are my Bare Lips

till later guys :D

Im only showing you the interesting things, im omitting like one thing and theyre just jeans lol SO anyway lets start with the one shirt i got from this shopping trip :)

Photobucket
Next are shoes. Now if youve seen some of my shoe posts, you'll know that i LOVE combat boots but these just happen to catch my eye. This style is VERY in right now. It kinda looks like guys loafers. i actually love this whole "Boyfriend" look (even though i dont have one LOL) But these are white so theyre nice and light for spring. I got these for $30

Photobucket
Now next is accessories. Which im sure EVERY girl loves :D I was looking for feather earrings and i found these at a store called Arden B. They were $19 but they were buy one get half off. I LOVEEEEE THEM! Ill insert a picture of me wearing it. I actually wore it the minute i got out of the store.
Photobucket
Theyre VERY heavy duty but they feel like nothing :) I felt like a shopping success when i got these :D They look really nice against my dark hair

Photobucket
Next are the half off bangles that i chose. I kinda just chose these because if the color. i love it. i didnt realize it until now that it matches the shirt i got. sweeeeettt but it came in a bundle and i love me my bangles :)

Photobucket
Next are the sunglasses from Century 21. This is from a brand called Rampage and OMG me and my mom got them for $9 (Originally $30 ish) They have purple tinted lenses and the shape of it is very in for the summer.

Photobucket
Now we head on to the bags. These bags are the absolute BOMBBB. The first one i got is this Black one from a brand called Miss Me (Not really sure of it) Sorry for the weird picture but it was the best i could do lol. So this bag has nice chains and its HUGE which i love because who doesnt love big bags :)
I plan to make this my everyday school bag. In the words of my mom "Its Classy"

Photobucket
Next bag is a nice mint color with a grey undertones. This is unfortunately a bad picture of it :/ Its by a company called Big Buddha, which is actually a vegan brand. So looks like i celebrated Earth Day properly with this bag :D Its called a Dusty Hobo bag

Estee Lauder's Frozen Fantasy

Photobucket


Photobucket

Its spring and all these bright colors are coming up. From creme finishes to glitters. Every now and then, its nice to change it up with a nice nude color to contrast everyones bright wardrobe right?

Here a great nude that I got a while ago for my birthday. Its Estée Lauder's Frozen Fantasy. Its a bit of a darker nude but it has this really unique silver veining/shimmer to it. its quite gorgeous and a serious staple in my collection. I wear this in between bright colors and by that i mean by that is that after i wear a super bright color, i wear this :)

Its a nice buffer for all these colors. SO tell me what you think of this color :) like it? hate it? leave it in the comments :)

-till next time <3

Spring Lips: MAC - Chatterbox

Photobucket

Photobucket

So this is the 3rd installment of my "Spring Lips" series. This is MAC's Chatterbox. Its the absolute perfect pink for spring. This reminds me of a more wearable and pinker version of Up The Amp. Its an amplified finish but it applies like a cremesheen. Its more of a warmer tone but its a fairly neutral tone. Its a super nice pastel kind of pink and it really think anyone can pull it off. It applies like a dream! For me, this is like an amplified version of my lips.
and check out my Bare Lips here LOL.

So how do you feel about this color? do you like pinks? leave it all in the comments. Give me some input :)

Check out my last post on my Spring Lips on Revlon's Coral Reef

till later <3

New York Adventures: Coney Island

Photobucket
*Me at Coney Island*


Hey guys,
You might not know but I Live in New York City (Queens to be specific) and well me and my friends LOVE to have little adventures around the city. We have a metro card and a LOT of time on our hands.

Photobucket
*This is me and my friend on the train*

So I thought might as well do a series called "New York Adventures" I'll be featuring some New York landmarks and some of my favorite places to go. So first off in the series is Coney Island. Its located in Brooklyn, New York and you can get there by taking the N,R or Q (Those are just the ones i take) So Coney Island is known mostly for the beach and the amusement park next to it. I've been on the Cyclone (a really scary old wooden roller coaster)

Photobucket
*Me and my friend posing :D*

Photobucket
*Our feet shot :D the leopard tights footies are mine*

Its a great escape for New Yorkers. The hustle and bustle of the city can be a little too much sometimes. Its nice to get away with just a train stop away. When youre here, you'll see a great contrast between the city and the beach. The fresh air, The nice breeze, and the bright sun really get the edge off.

Photobucket
*My Friend, i loved this picture SO much, i HAD to use it :)*

The pictures are just of me and my friends. Im the one with the shorts and the leopard tights. We went and visited when we had half a day from school. it was the perfect day! it was like 70 degrees out and it was SO warm out. but the water was SOO cold! but it was still an awesome day
Here are a butt load of more pictures :D

Photobucket

Photobucket
*Me and my friend were playing a game! :D We ran in the water when the tide went back, and ran back to shore when the wave came in*


Another great thing about Coney Island is that just a few blocks away, there are great delis, bodegas and other fast food stores to go inside in if youre short on cash :) The food stands in the amusement park are pretty afffordable. if you wanted the full experience for it, go for it! :D

So thats it, ill be posting some of these soon.
till then, i will see you guys later :)


*PICS ARE MINE. MY FRIENDS ARE GENEROUS ENOUGH TO LET ME USE IT :D BUT I TRIED TO USE PICTURES OF ME*

Minted Leopard Nails :D

Photobucket

So ive been lately loving doing my nails lately. specially with nail art. I dont have any konad but i do have nail art polishes. If you saw my last post on my Cherry Blossom Nails, you'll see what ive done lol. Now here is another one of my creations :)

Photobucket
Im calling it "Minted Leopard"

I used
•China Glaze's Re-Fresh Mint (Which is my FAVORITE nail polish for this spring season)
Heres a quickie swatch of it, ill do a full post on it, cus it deserves it :)

Photobucket
•Black Nail Art Polish
•White Nail Art Polish
and ofcourse my favorite top coat, INM's Out The Door

If you guys like this, please tell me and ill be willing to do a tutorial on it soon :)

so thats it for now,
Check out my recent post on my "Spring Lips" series, i featured Revlon's Coral Reef

-till later guys :D

Spring Lips: Revlon - Coral Reef :)

So here is the first post on my series called "Spring Lips"
Now we all know that coral is a staple to anyones make up routine during spring time. From lips to cheeks to even eyes.

Photobucket

Photobucket

here is a lipgloss that i feel everyone must have for this upcoming spring. This is Revlon's Coral Reef. I would describe it as a "jelly" based lipgloss. Its very see through but it covers the lips nicely with a tint of coral. Its a creme color so there is absolutely no shimmer in this. I carry this around in my make up bag everyday during spring. This is not that sticky but it stays on the lips nicely. Here is a picture of my Bare Lips to show you guys the pigmentation of it.

Photobucket

Photobucket

This is a staple and a great investment for your spring make up routine.

I hope you guys try this out :) Pick it up next time you see it and see if you like it. I think it works for any skin tone. Its fairly pigmented enough for anyone to rock it.

So hopefully you guys enjoyed my first post on my "Spring Lips" Series! I will have more posts soon i promise :)

Till later! <3

China Glaze - Sea Spray :D

Photobucket


Hey guys :)
So this is China Glaze's Sea Spray. This came out with the Anchor's Away collection (I Think). Now lemme tell you the real reason why i actually got this polish. Othen than it being GORGEOUS! i saw a post from Makeup and Beauty Blog about this polish being a dupe for a Chanel Polish called Riva. Its not an exact same dupe but it pretty darn good. Check out the post here. The Chanel color is very light and has a more white base, but i like this Sea Spray much more. It has more of a gray tone and it looks awesome.

Photobucket

So i would describe the color as a gray toned, sky blue color with the slightest shimmer. and when i saw slight, i mean you can barely see it unless you look REALLY close to it. But then again thats another thing that i like about it. It not just your regular creme even though it applies like it, its more complex and i really am infatuated with the color. Its fairly opaque, it look about 2 coats to get full opacity. it was a tiny bit streaky but not over the top.

So how do you feel about this color? Do you have it? Let me know in the comments :)

Im not taking any credit for this, i saw a video from a lovely youtuber "Misschievous" and she did a tutorial on this.


Photobucket

-ELF: Mint Cream (For the background)
-China Glaze: White on White (For the white petals)

NOTM: Floral Tips :D

Photobucket

So spring has sprung here in New York and it was about time! I wanted to commemorate this glorious spring season with a spring-y manicure. and by manicure, i mean i did it myself :D

So this week, I was taking pictures for my senior portrait for my high school and i decided to do french tips. nothing fancy, just a white nail art and some clear polish. I checked the news and saw that the weather was finally getting higher! I ran to where i kept my polishes and i wanted to paint on something coral but then i saw my nail stickers. I just decided to use those.


Photobucket

i didnt wanna put it on all of my nails, so i just did it on my thumb, pointer and ring finger. It looked pretty sophisticated :)


Photobucket

Here are the stickers i used, i got these from my mom. she said her friend went to Japan brought them for her but she does her nails in a salon and she knows i am like obsessed with nail stuff. so yeah she just gave it to me. i have a bunch more that are different.

Photobucket

so what do you feel about this? leave it in the comments and tell me :D

till next time :)

FOTD: Featuring NARS' Exhibit A

Photobucket

Hey guys, so this is a momentous event. I just bought my very first NARS blush!
Now i'm sure youre saying "Oh you probably bought Orgasm"
well sir, i didnt. I like pushing the envelope on make up so i HAD to get Exhibit A

Photobucket

Photobucket

As you can see, Exhibit A is UNBELIEVABLY crazy looking.
Its SO bright and its SO red.
and i SO love it :D

Photobucket
As you can see, its CRAZY pigmented. This is the finger swatch and lemme say it actually stained my finger.


Photobucket
This is it blended out. As im typing right now, i can still see the stain on my hand from the swatch. This is what i love about it. its SO pigmented that i need the most tiniest bit of it just for my one cheek. I take a big fluffy brush (like the Sigma F30), Tap it once or twice on the blush, tap it off any excess on the back of my hand and still have SO much for my cheeks.

Photobucket
This is it applied the way i explained, it gives kind of a nice "Embarrassed" blush :D Its awesome for everyday even though its a glorious red. You have to be a little bit careful with it though. If you have fair skin, you might lessen your application but it is still really universal.



Now on to my FOTD. Here it is and yes im wearing Exhibit A. isnt it gorgeous! i swear it was worht every single penny.
