Sugar Rimmed Nails

Hey Y'all!!

I had to do something to my nails!! They were so plain and boring. So I attempted (key word is attempted) to do a Glittery French Manicure using the hot pink Zoya color I choose at the nail salon.

After I was done I decided to call them Sugar Rimmed Nails! They remind me of a margarita glass rimmed with sugar (I don't like mine rimmed with salt)! Well sparkly sugar....

I used Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear (200 Strobe Light).

How kinds of designs do you do on your nails. I'm going to break out my Art Deco polishes and my dotting tool and get creative. :)

P.S. I dedicate this attempt at nail art to Ms. DSK Steph. She's much better then me. Her manicures always look so nice and her polish collection is on point. She also is a Jewerlynista Sparkly Entreprenuer!!! When I come to Seattle you better hide all of stuff!!!! xoxoxo

Luv Y'all!!!

Nail Woes Week #4

Hey Y'all!!!

I caved :( I got a gel overlay on my nails. I feel so much better. No MORE nail woes!! I'm not 100% satisfied with the results. They look thicker than I would like them to be. I might have to change nail salons. I didn't get any designs. I like to do them myself because I suck and I want to learn how  to do them myself.

Sorry I don't know the name of the color. It's a Zoya Nail Polish but the sticker on the bottom of the bottle at the salon was unreadable. :(

So I took the easy way out... Now I need to find a salon that I like.....


Luv Y'all!!!!

Sally Sunday's

Hey Ya'll!

I went to Sally's today for nail polish remover and left with more then that of course. I just wanted to share my finds with you guys.

I finally got a nail dotting tool! Its a double ended brush. The bristle part is for fine detailing and the bottom part is used for dotting (making small dots) and marbleizing!! I also grabbed a new bottle of White Stripe Rite nail art polish. My other one broke.  :(   I've become real interested in doing my own nail art lately, but I only know how to do one design really well. Time to practice..

I also got One 'N Only's Argan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo, Conditioner and Oil Treatment. I got the small sizes so I can see if I like this line. I haven't used them yet but they smell good. The travel size shampoo  and conditioner were $3.39 with a Sally's Card and the Oil Treatment was $5.99 with a Sally's card.

I will definitely review these after I use them a few times. I'm hoping for some good results!!! Yes, I got my nail polish remover but I didn't picture it because its boring and the bottle is really big and was ruining my pics :)

Luv Y'all!!!

All I Do Is Win!

Hey Y'all!!

Actually I never win contests :( But this time I actually did.  Imee, my West Beauty Blogger Luva, hosted a contest sponsored by Sigma, and I won a Sigma Flat Top Kabuki Brush!!! I've been stalking my mailbox for days. I never stalk my mailbox. There's usually nothing in there but junk and bad news aka BILLS (>_<)

I'm looking forward to trying out this brush. I've been wanting to "experiment" with Sigma brushes but I haven't purchased any yet.

I'm a dork I took a pic of the box...

I'm a sucker for cute packaging & presentation  :)

This exclusive flat top synthetic kabuki was designed to deliver a flawless makeup application. The Sigma Makeup F80 is a buffer brush that can be used to blend powder or liquid products. The short and dense bristles make it easy to buff your liquid foundation. The long handle adds comfort to your makeup application. The synthetic fibers are ideal to be used with liquid products and can be easily cleaned. Made of Synthetic Sigmax HD filament.

Here are some pics of the brush!

The brush also came with a brush protector to help keep its shape!

Super dense bristles!!!

I'm excited to add this brush to my pathetic brush collection. Hopefully this will be the first of more Sigma brushes for me to to try. You should read Imee's blog because I say you should. Who knows you might win something!!!!

Luv Ya'll!!!

Mean It!!!

P.S. I luvs you Imee! Winning had nothing to do with it!!!! When I come to Cali we will have a date!!! :)

Drugstore vs. Department Store~ Miliani Eye Pencil vs. UD 24/7Liner

Hey Y'all!

I was in desparate need of a new black eye liner pencil, for my lower lash line and waterline... I feel naked without it. If you know me then you know I'm very picky about my eye liners.. I expect the following.. A dark and rich black liner that  lasts all day.. I'm not really asking for much..

My holy grail eye liner pencil is Urban Decay's 24/7 Liner in Zero... As you can see in the pic. I'm down to a bunch of liner nubs (yep there's more, I'm a liner nub hoarder)... Well my nubs are almost pretty useless. They are getting to short to sharpen :(

My schedule has been hectic lately and I don't have the time or engery or the willpower to lack temptation to go to Ulta or Sephora to pick up a new one. Also the UD Liners retail for $18.

I heard good things about Milani's Eye Pencils so I was in CVS the other night and I decided to grab one and test it...

What Milani Says ~ Smooth-glide formula delivers expert lining that doesn’t skip. Sharpens to a fine-line point.


Lasts all day..

Cry proof... I was emotional and shed a few years and the eyeliner didn't budge!!

Price $4.79 (at CVS)



Overall Rating 5/♥ ♥ ♥

I love it!!! It has holy grail potential!!! It meets my requirement and saved me money!!!! The swatches are pretty much identical!!!


Luv Y'all!!!

Mean It!!

Nail Woes Week #3

Hey Ya'll!!

I know my expectations are high for only four weeks. I wanted longer stronger nails ASAP. Peeling is minimal not as bad as when I began, but they aren't growing  (>_<).

I stumbled upon some nail polishes this weekend!! I actually found Borghese Nail Polishes at Ross!!! For $2.99 and $1.99. They usually retail for $8!!!!

Raspberry Sorbetto & The Base and Top Coat came together as a set for $2.99. Berry Confezione was $1.99.

I also snagged Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear in 200 Strobe Light. I needed some glitter in my life :)

I'm really considering learning how to do acrylics or gel nails myself!!! I'm impatient (>_<)

Excuse the sloppiness.. I took the picture before I touched up my "mistakes"


Luv Y'all!!
