Nails of the Week & The Revealing Of Last Week's Polishes!






This gorgeous green festive polish is Zoya in the shade "Holly." If you've watched my latest Birchbox video, then you would know it was included in my November Birchbox, so obviously I was super excited, so I had to try it out. This polish does have a significant amount of sparkle to it, but don't be surprised by the photo, it only is very noticeable in the light (or the obvious flash of the camera) so your nails won't look like a disco ball 24/7. Excuse the photo, I didn't clean up around my nails until after I took the picture. 

But let's talk about last week's Nails of the Week in case you missed it. I didn't share what type of polishes I used to create this funky blue/purple look, because I was conducting a little experiment, but now I'll reveal them to you...




These are the shades "Teal" and "Purple" by the brand NK. These polishes were very affordable (Only $1 at my local dollar store). I wanted to see how such cheap polish would hold up, since I am all about beauty on a budget, I thought this would be a fun experiment. These polishes did not start significantly chipping until about day 8. I decided to wear these polishes for 10 days to give them a maximum run, hence why this NOTW is so postponed.

I was pleasantly surprised with how well they held up, I also purchase the NK nail enamel top coat and used that, rather than OPI's top coat. The top coat made my nails very shiny, and these polishes surprisingly dried very quickly. I bought quite a few shades in these polishes, because I figured, at the very least, they would be nice bright colors to use for nail art designs if anything. 

So, there you have it. You don't need to spend $18 on a MAC nail polish or even $10 on an OPI polish to achieve results. Hell, no one will even know what type of nail polish you've got on. If you don't have a lot of money to spend on beauty products, then don't feel bad for buying cheaper. The products often work the same, or very similar. =)

Face of the Day, November 3, 2011

Just because it's almost winter doesn't mean you can't play around with colors, right?! I recently purchased the Wet n Wild Blue Had Me At Hello palette, thanks to emilynoel83 on YouTube! I've been more into trying out blue shadows lately, however I did not use any of the blue shades in this particular look. However, I do like the way it turned out. For some reason I feel like when I photograph a particular look a lot of the color gets washed out of the photo.. I'll have to work on messing with the settings to my camera. Here is a list of all the products used!


Face:
Mark Face Primer
Stila One Step Foundation in Tone
Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Concealer in 230 Corrector for under eyes
Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Concealer in 210 Light to spot conceal random areas
Maybelline Shine Free Loose Powder in Medium
NYC Sunny Bronzer to contour
Wet n Wild Blush in Pearlescent Pink
Cover Girl Blush in Natural for a highlight


Eyebrows:
ELF Eyebrow Kit Shadow & Wax


Eyes: 
Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Concealer in 230 Corrector as a base
Wet n Wild Blue Had Me At Hello palette, silver on half of lid, sparkly black on other half, greenish brow color in crease, sea green shimmery color in crease, and white brow color directly under the brows
Covergirl Eye Enhancers in Shimmering Onyx to lightly line the eyelid
Cover Girl Perfect Point Plus Eye Liner in Black Onyx on Waterline
L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes 


Lips:
Covergirl lipstick in Sweetheart

Nails of the Week - Can You Guess?

So, this week I opted to do a little experimenting. I'm not going to post the names of these two nail polishes until I do the nails of the week for next week. I took this photograph today, but I actually painted my nails on Sunday. Sorry for the delay.


Can anyone guess what two nail polishes these are? I bet you will be pleasantly surprised!

BTW, for anyone who was wondering, when I used the ELF Chocolate nail polish last week, and I used the base coat underneath, it did not stain my natural nails. However, the polish was somewhat difficult to get off. Not necessarily on my actual nails, but I found that the brown shade smeared all over the tips of my fingers. Kind of unpleasant, but a lot better with a base coat than the red shade I used that my natural nails are STILL stained from! Looks like I won't be sporting a french manicure until all of that grows out!
