Im nude


Well not me but my nail polish is LOL In this manicure Im wearing Zoya Pandora which is AMAZING to say the least. I dont generally like nudes but this is pretty and has been added to my favorite Zoya list. The application was sheer with the 1st coat but a 2nd coat took care of that.The color matches the color in the bottle perfectly. It wasnt streaky at all and was oh soo creamy. This color is a must have by all skintones in my opinion.
This is showing Pandora with the flash on 

This is without the flash to show the actual color !

Beautiful. Do you have this color in your collection ? What do you think about it ? *smooches*

I love purple eyeshadow

This look was created with Shany's cosmetic palette and Maybelline pulse perfection mascara. I didnt use a base color or anything like I do generally. I used gold for the inner corner of my eye and as a highlighter then I put a darker purple on top of a light purple to get this color. 

Another shot 


Me looking crazy about to wash this off my face =)

Looking up so you can see my long lashes =)

I love how the gold looks in this pic !

Hope you like this look as much as I do *smooches*

Wet n Wild and Milani manicure

Wet n Wild Silvivor this is one coat. It went on pretty well being a a metallic silver,it wasnt streaky at all. 

Then I topped Milani's jewel fx  in silver to make it pop. Now in this picture its coming off as black but in person it is a very shiny silver and my nails looks like I put mini squins on it =)  The coverage was good with 2 coats.

Another shot to show how bling bling it is *smooches*

Barielle and Zoya comparison

Barielle's positive zen-ergy are on all fingers except the middle finger which is showing Zoya Gemma. I thought they were dupes until I swatched them. Positive zen-ergy is a light murky green with silver shimmer in it. Gemma is a darker green with a flash of purple.Positive zen-ergy application was a little goopy and Zoya's was sheer but other then that application was good for both. I used 2 coats for each.They are both beautiful and I do feel you need both *smooches*

Maybelline pulse perfection review

So today I received my order from Barielle,my Maybelline mascara from ebay and my rings I purchased from Kristin who run's Manicured monkey. the Barielle colors L-R Myzra's Meadow, Welcome ohm ( the pink and blue water marble ring is shown with this one so much prettier in person) , Do unto others, and positive zen-ergy (which shows the light green and light blue water marble ring). I decided to try out the mascara since I was curious and heard mixed reviews. 
I only did one eye to show the difference and to make sure you see the difference I opted not to put any make up on ( this eye is completely bare meaning no mascara)
This is one coat on top and bottom lashes 
This is with one coat of mascara to show how it looks closed 
This is with 2 coats and it didnt do much of a difference but it did start to get clumpy (one coat on the bottom)
This is shown with 2 coats 

Both eyes in the shot so you can clearly see the difference in the 2. The application was very easy and the vibrating did make I difference.I didnt have to wiggly it while applying I just pressed the button on the wand and went from lash to tip as the package suggest. Overall I like this Mascara so far. I will give it the real test when I go out for the night and see how it holds up *smooches*

Milani and Deborah Lippmann manicure

 I used Milani one coat glitters in red sparkle
with an accent nail of Deborah Lippmann ruby red slippers. the Milani application was a little streaky but gave good coverage with one coat.However I did have to use one coat and a half on certain fingers but they may have just been my error. Deborah Lippmann's polish application was great however my brush seems to be defective bc it isnt spreading like my other brushes of her's I have. Anywho I got good coverage with 2 coats and to avoid applying 3 or more of topcoat to my glitters since they are always thirsty I used Gelous bas/topcoat. Gelous is great for glitter polishes or any gritty polish for that matter. 



another pic trying to capture both sparkle and shine in these pretties =)

A side pic showing the sparkle 



The date in this pic is clearly wrong lol disregard that part please 

A close up of ruby red to show you the black jelly base which has chunks of red glitter mix throughout. Also I must say red sparkle was not captured well in these pics !!! red sparkle truly looks like Dorothy red slippers from the Wizard of Oz and that is not a exaggeration at all.*smooches*

Make up I wear to Walmart

 So Today I received two swap packages from some ladies in our facebook group one being OPI who the shrek are you which I love and  another was a make up palette from a company called Sleek. The  make up palette name is chaos and the color choice is good. I got my inspiration from who the shrek are you so I used green and yellow for my look.I also used Laura Geller's eye spackle which I swear by and Rimmel lash flirt for my mascara.

A close up to show the green shadow 

Another shot of my eye's 



Another close up of my eye ...btw I did clean the mascara off of my lid before going to wal-mart hehe



Trying a pink lip ( I never wear lipstick not alone pink lol) this is a wet n wild one.Application was smooth and   last awhile for it only costing .99 !!! *smooches*

OPI and Ulta brand manicure

I used OPI sparrow me the drama and Ulta brand material girl. Sparrow me the drama is showing up lighter here then in person it resembles a lighter version pepto bismol in my opinion.Its a very pretty pink and good to go with 2 coats.It was a little streaky going on but my top coat fixed that problem.


Material girl is very pretty and you could get away with one coat but I used two. Great application and coverage.I was already warned by a friend that it is a thirsty polish meaning you will more then likely need to use 2 coats of top coat to smooth it out. With that being said I used my top coat gelous which I swear by when using gritty polishes so once dried it was smooth


Blurred to show the different colored glitter *smooches*

My first make up pic

First I want to tell you I have no clue how to do make up. Im not a professional and I learned the little bit that I do know from youtube lol.To get this look I used Laura Geller's baked blush in berry (the coral color),the gold from Wet n Wild Im getting sunburned and Rimmel London mascara called glam eyes lash flirt in kohl black.The reason I use her blush as eyeshadow is bc its too bright for me to wear as a blush. Also the Rimmel mascara is awesome it made my lashes look very long and pretty !!!
I blurred this one so you could see the shimmer that is in eyeshadow.
eyes closed so you can see the colors fully 


Blurred again to see the shimmer 




Just a close up of my eye =) 

My nails today is some purple by Orly I cant remember the name bc I went the nail salon to get my nails filled (sorry) topped with OPI thrills in beverly hills ( I purchased this one thats how I know lol). It was soo much sparkly in person *smooches*

Zoya topped with Nubar and my Dereon Heels

Zoya Caitlin topped with Nubar Tan me which matches my Dereon heels perfectly dont you think ? Have you ever purchased clothing to match nail polish or vice versa ? Im sure Im not the only nail polish addict that does! By the way both polishes had great application and sure you all know Zoya dominates my polish collection.*smooches*

Deborah Lippmann glitter in the air over China Glaze agent lavender

With flash ! Agent Lavender was applied chalky but is a pretty light lavender.Glitter in the air is very sheer and would work best as a layering polish vs worn alone unless you dont mind putting on about 4 - 5 coats of polish.

Without Flash 
Showing you the finger Sally Hansen grass slipper stained really badly. It even showed through the freaking polish I put on =( By the way I did a rainbow skittle for LGBT month but it was so ugly I decided not to show you guys.*smooches/
