Hello Lovelies! I’ve been passing downtime at work by plotting out nail designs and color combos, and these are the product of one of those boredom sessions! I haven’t done anything bright and peppy lately, so I started off with a base of Wet n […]

Jordana Cat Eye Liner Black Leather Review

Hello Lovelies!

I have a quick review on Jordana Cat Eye Liner today! I picked this up at Walgreens awhile back for 2.99, this is the color Black Leather. They have a whole slew of colors, I really want to try Caribbean which is a light turquoise blue, and Future which is a gorgeous copper. I’m really happy with the formula of Black Leather, so I’m going to go back and pick up some of the other shades! It’s a nice opaque rich black, the cap twists off to reveal your standard thin liner brush. It’s a very flexible brush so I have to use a light hand with it, but it’s very easy to use. The liner stays on all day, no smudging, flaking, cracking, or fading. And the packaging is pretty cute to boot~

See you later~

No eating here tonight, you’re on a diet!

Hello Lovelies! These nails were originally going to be very cool indeed, because I got my hands on one of those NFC light up stickers, and I was going to make miss anglerfish’s lure light up, but my sticker refused to co-operate so I ended […]

Inferno Kitsune Nails w/Born Pretty

Hello Lovelies!

This is kind of the part two to my last post, I decided to try out this trio of stamping bits and bobs with a different base color, and I’m loving this mani a lot more than the last! I started these nails off with a base of Covergirl Outlast Inferno, then I stamped with Y103 from Born Pretty and Temix Stamping Polish #5.
Then I matted it all with Wet n Wild Matte Topcoat.

And I forgot to mention in my last post, if you ever order anything from Born Pretty, here’s a code that’s good for 15% off your order: ALBK31

See you later~
