Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips....

Hey Loves


I finally got the Sally Hansen Nail Polish strips after lusting for months.These strips are real nail polish which come in a wide array of colours and designs  with no dry time, just peel and apply.The packaging boasts that it will last up to ten days...I will just wait and see.

THE RESULTS 



THE RESULTS AMPLIFIED !!!



MY EXPERIENCE

In terms of application of the nail strips it was quite awkward at first and the application process on my left hand was a bit  difficult being a leftie and all. I was slightly annoyed that although 16 strips are provided some  can't be utilized because they are ridiculously small and could not cover the entire nail. Overall I am in love with the Sally Hansen strips, I have gotten so many compliments on my nails and I recommend them to anyone  who loves fun manicures.I found out that the use of a top coat actually helps in the longevity of strips.

Pink Frost....

Hey guys,

I know that I have been slacking off but life has been quite hectic over the past three weeks or so, but things have slowed down, so I will be updating more frequently.Here is picture of my  manicure for the week using Jordana's Pink Frost. I really adore Jordana polishes because they are affordable, they dry  really fast and the finish is always fabulous.


Thanks a million for reading

Lets Play Girl...



Sometime ago I was browsing in a beauty supply store and I came upon some loose  eye shadows.Frankly I've never heard of this brand and I  was a bit hesitant. The brand is Playgirl  and the shade I got was Blue Satin. I was wickedly surprised at how beautifully pigmented it was, not to mention the fact that it blends like a dream,  however the  sore point of using this eye shadow is that like all other loose shadows/powders is that its really messy...it gets everywhere!!!

Here is a look incorporating the shadow....

My makeup routine for the above is  the same as HERE except for the fact that I used Elf eyelid Primer, a random black eye shadow in my outer V and NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Mink for my  tearduct area.Overall I would say this eye shadow is very good considering the fact that its an unknown brand.


Hope you guys enjoyed reading !

New Nail Trend- Magnetic Nail Polishes

Hey Loves,

If you guys don't already know I really have little obsession with nail polishes and all the fun designs one can  create.  I was and still am loving the Crackle Nail Polish trend and  you can see my crackle manicure here, however  a fun new trend has come on the scene which I can't wait to get my hands on and thats Magnetic Nail Polishes

Image Courtesy of Google

I am especially eager to try the ones from LCN .The way this polish works is by applying a really thick coat to each nail and then a magnet (sold separately) is held above the nail  ( while the polish is still wet) and this in turn pulls the iron fillings in the polish to produce the pattern......pretty cool stuff huh?!




Are you girls excited  as I am to try out this trend ?


Until Next Post

Butter without the Extra LBS

Hey Dolls,

I know its been a while since my last post and I apologize for that but I'm back now and I would like to share with you another natural  product that I have been using and have incorporated in my skincare regime.

Image Courtesy of Google 


Its Raw Shea butter which is rich in vitamins A,E and F. I  have been using it  for over two months now and it has made a world of difference.These are the following ways in which I utilize  Shea Butter:
  •  As a lip moisturizer  at night before bed. 
  • I apply  it to my  hair paying special attention to the ends on a daily basis and it has greatly reduced my split ends and also banished dryness.
  •  I use it to  massage my cuticles daily and  my nails are now in such good shape that  people always ask if I wearing acrylics. 
  • Lastly I use it as a moisturizer, especially  around  my eye area  as it said to firm skin and help prevent/clear wrinkles.It also helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots over time.
Hope you girls found this post helpful and  informative

ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer

Hi Loves,


I recently acquired the Elf Mineral Eyeshadow Primer and you guys know I always share my thoughts on products  that I try for the first time. An eyeshadow primer is utilized prior to the application of your  eyeshadow, this is to facilitate a smoother application of the shadow and it  helps in the longevity and vibrancy of the colour.





This primer is filled with vitamin A C and E but has none of the  harmful substances like Parabens, Preservatives and Chemical Dyes



My Thoughts- I found the  application to be really easy and my eyeshadow was virtually crease free and the colour was indeed  more intense. In addition I also like the fact that it has vitamins infused in the formula.The price of this primer on the ELF website is ridiculous its so  inexpensive which is always a good thing. 

Hope you dolls enjoyed Reading

Maybelline The Falsies Flared.....

Hey guys,

I know that I haven't been updating as much as I should and I sincerely apologise for this... anyhoo on to the matter at hand. I got the new  Maybelline Volum'Express The Falsies Flared  Mascara about a week ago , the colour I got was Blackest Black.


The packaging describes this mascara as giving your lashes the flared false lash effect with its patented Spoon Curler brush which loads each lash with its Kera-Fibre formal to instantly build volume that goes up and out at the corners...

The Wand


After two continuous applications


*my eye looks freaky :S


 I was some what satisfied  with this mascara as it accomplished 80%  of  what the packaging promised ...although I saw more length than volume. I was really impressed at the application because I could  layer it  several times and my lashes were  virtually clump free.The downside of this mascara was  the smell which was a tad bit over whelming and  took  some getting used to but then again its probably just me. In conclusion I would  still recommend this mascara to you girls who haven't tried it...

And to all the dolls who have this mascara what are your thoughts?

Pucker Up....

Hey Dolls

I am a huge fan of NYX  Round Lipsticks for several reasons they are really inexpensive , they come in a wide variety of shades and they are really pigmented. These lipsticks also have a really creamy consistency and are very moisturizing . Here are pics of my favorites:



*some are melted 


L---->R  Baby Pink, Narcissus, Iris, Herades, Nyx

I really adore these lip sticks  my utmost faves are Narcissus and Herades. Baby Pink looks scary but the trick to wearing a shade like this is pairing it with the right lip liner like a purple,pink or brown lip liner  and then topping it off with a lip gloss. Overall these lippies are a really good investment the only downside is that they aren't long lasting therefore you have to re-apply constantly but for the price I would let that fault slide. In addition  they melt easily, however a quick trick is to store them in the refrigerator. I encourage you dolls  to give these lipsticks a try.....you won't be disappointed.

Black in the Summer....

Hey Dolls,

 Since its officially summer I know  most of you girls have pretty much swapped out your dark colored  nail polishes for vibrant bold colors, however some colors are universal and can be worn through out the year such as black and  shades of red and so for this post  I decided to do a simple, fun and  summery design with  a  black nail polish.



L--> R KleanColor Nail polishes in neon pink, yellow and green,  Milani Nail Lacquer in Black Magic

In order to achieve the design I used the aforementioned products, the Milani polish in Black Magic was used as the  base and then  a toothpick was  utilized to apply the dots diagonally on my nails.... here is the finished look  

I hope you FoXy Ones enjoyed reading.

I've Got Game....

Looking at the title of this post one would think that I am referring to the series on BET  with Tia Mowry and the gang... but nah its not about that, instead its my Utopia baked eyeshadow from Klean Color Cosmetics, from a previous  post on a blush (see post here ) I mentioned I would  give their baked eye shadows a go. Since purple is my favourite colour I decided to get the shade called "Game" which is medley of purple and pink on to the pics.....


I tried a look with the Game   it didn't turn out all that bad, the only issue I had was that there was crazy fall out so that was a huge turnoff.


*My brows are going through a phase lol

 The color payoff was ok but due to  all that fall out I really don't think I will try the other colors, however if you Dolls decide to purchase this  definitely use a primer and/or base or your color will be gone before you even go through the door . 


Hope you enjoyed reading
