Color Club Night bright

Went to the Nail supply store and picked me up a pot of glitter stars. 
Reminds me of pixie dust.
These stars have a duo chrome iridescent glow. 

Color Club Night bright is a cobalt blue that dries satin.
This formula chipped within two days without primer. 
Totally failed my test but I will try it 
with primer and top coat to see how it holds.
From far, these stars looked like small cherry blossom petals.

Ole Hendrickson firm action mask

This is a luxurious high quality mask. The velvet creamy texture was a dream to put on. It's effectiveness could be felt working when it lightly tingled. The scent is of authentic botanicals. It takes me away to a spa in a garden. I saw immediate results, my pores are visibly closed up. I am impressed by the texture and scent. It had a floral scent that was pleasing.

OPI Infinite Shine Review

I have been on the search for the perfect gel top coat. OPI brush is thick enough where a few strokes covers the entire nail. You will need two coats. The first coat was dull in the second one gave this pretty gloss shine. The gloss is sparkling in natural light but indoor light the shine was not impressive. I do like that it dries fast. It is thin in consistency of formula. Overall, I am not entirely impressed with top coat I will keep it in my stash because if I ever wanted a fast manicure this will do. For a no light formula this is pretty good. Now let's see how it stands up to all the chores I have to do. Do you have a holy grail top coat?
I would give this a 6.3 out of 10

The secret that mothers wants for Mother's Day

Hey guys! It was mother day this past weekend and I did a mani just to show you what momma wants.

Want to know a little secret?
These are the things yo mama wants but might not ask
  • Pearls If you have an mother you need to give her pearls once in her lifetime. They are a classic and represent purity. Think mother of pearl.

  • Diamonds are a girls best friend and there is no better way that say I LOVE YOU MOTHER
  • Mothers love FOOD. Whatever her favorites are, give her what she wants! Wine, chocolate or caviar GET it. You only have one or two mothers in your life so go on and dazzle her in decadence.

Caviar and pearl these are the two elements it inspire me for this nail look.
If these things are not your mother, 
  • Flowers
  • Card 
  • Lunch/Brunch/Dinner will do too! 
  • Don't forget the kisses and hugs! These are what mothers live for, you are never too old or too cool for these!

Get nude nails

Nude is one of my favorite colors because it is 
an modern grown up version of pink.
Everything looks even better when paired with rose gold

April ipsy bag

Hey beauties just wanted to post what I got in the mail yesterday. I love this straw bag it's cute for that beach look. This perfume has a driftwood scent that is clean and is my favorite. I love the little mini eye shadow and glosses I get from my bags because I actually use it enough to see if I really like it enough to get a full size. Let's get real though I hardly ever finish all my glosses or lipstick unless it was pure love so the mini are perfect sizes. This full size HIKARI blush in tango is bright but I use a light touch on it and is universally flattering on everyone. The serum didn't do much for my skin.  What did you get in your bag?

Fyrinnae Arcane magic glitterboi

Fyrinnae makes an arcane magic eyeshadow line that changes colors in different lighting. I love it because it is so unique from any other makeup eyeshadows I have ever seen and best of all they are inexpensive. I have once worn one of the shadows to work and the girls were amazed that it changes colors. I apply a small amount of pixie epoxy and let it dry. This will allow the glitter shadows to stick on the lid well and appear foiled. Once blended I go back with my finger /flat side of brush to tap on the shadow for it to pop. 

pictured above under white light the shadow is the glitter pops in tuorquoise to blues
in between both lights

pictured above is under natural light its purple

on the left is white light, the right is natural lighting both applied with pixie epoxy

These shadows are camera shy so you can not see the amazing of it until you see it in person but what more is there to think about go buy them

I got my first ipsy bag and I am really impressed and excited to try them out. I adore how small the pixi highlighter and bronzer is, its good for travel or to leave at work. The Chella ivory lace highlighter retails for $18 alone. It is a multi-functional highlighter and concealer which is another great on the go item. I can tell that these items are thought about carefully because  they're nudes that can be flattering on everyone.
Post pics of looks later!

I ran my finger through the bristles of the brush and saw stuff coming out of it which now we all know to wash our brushes before we use them

Winter moisture

This is a recap what worked for my skin this winter.
I suffer severe dry skin and have to apply
product often to keep moisturize 

Burt's Bee's lip balm is all natural, gives a hint of color that is appropriate for work. It prevents from your lips getting chapped. If your lips are severely chapped go for the Carmex.

Burt's bee serum does keeps your face glowing. The active ingredient is royal jelly along with licorice. Licorice evens out your skin tone. The results last with daily use.

Julep essential cuticle oil is conveniently packaged in a roller ball. It smells of lavender and it rolls on to give the perfect amount on your cuticle. I love this stuff in the winter.

The Body Shop's cocoa butter has been my all time favorite. Your skin feels butter smooth. 
The Burt's Bees body butter makes my skin feel soft and the smell of the cranberry pomegranate is of true to scent. The tart of cranberries you can almost taste.
BBW Madegascar vanilla is an earthy vanilla. This doesn't moisturize me well but it's scent is fantastic and lasts long.

These products kept my skin through the winter what are some of your favorites?
