Swirly pastel blues

Hello Lovelies!

I’ve been really loving matte pastels lately, and stamped pastels are even better! Today’s nails were created with Aiyoohehe plate 056, Lady Queen sent me the plate to try out. The hehe plates I’ve stamped with in the past have been wonderful, and this didn’t let me down! These started with Pure Ice Oui Oui and I stamped them with Salon Perfect Mer-Made of Money. I matted them with Pure Ice Frost Finish Matte Topcoat.

See you later~

Perfect Brows Tinted Balm

Hello Lovelies!I’ve never really understood the whole eyebrows on fleek craze, and I only very recently starting using eyebrow products, if I’m feeling fancy I’ll use my e.l.f eyebrow kit (usually only if I’m cosplaying), and that’s it. And I only started using that maybe […]

Miss A Makeup Haul & Review

Hello Lovelies!

I finally got around to placing an order on Miss A’s website, since I got a few different things I decided to split this up into a short series of reviews to tell you lovelies what I thought of each one.
I was surprised that my order came in an plastic bag instead of a box, but it was actually bubble wrapped to death inside the bag, and then inside the bubble wrap was a foam envelope encasing another plastic bag, so they didn’t skimp out at all! It took less than two weeks to arrive from the shipment date.

The first thing I tried was the Kleancolor Lash Bow Tux Waterproof Mascara, shown below is one coat on my lashes. This has a dry formula, almost no clumps at all and gave me some nice length. Something that struck me as strange is that it’s scented? It has a fruity kinda floral scent, I’ve never heard of scented mascara before.
But it held up nicely through the day, no flaking or fallout.

Secondly I tested the Beauty Treats Purrrfect Pout Lipstick in Frisky (#6). The only reason I got this was the cute packaging, (pic is at the top of the post), and I wasn’t expecting much. This is an alright lipstick, I had to go over my lips twice to get it opaque, and it had a way stronger shimmer than I was expecting. I’m not a huge fan of shimmers so I probably won’t use it that much, but like I said I mostly got it for the cute tube.

Zanthara Nail Vinyls Review

Hello Lovelies!

I have a new brand on the blog today, I was sent a package of goodies by Zanthara; a Brazilian company that specializes in nails! 
I created these nails with one of their many nail vinyls, you get eight full nail vinyls in a pack. That confused me a bit at first, cause ten nails should need ten vinyls right? But the adhesive on these is wonderful, and I was able to actually do these nails with just two vinyls! It’s not so strong that it’ll damage your base color, and I love being able to stretch supplies for more manis 🙂 Be careful you don’t get polish on the sticky side though, I wasn’t and that why these didn’t turn out quite as crisply as I’d of hoped.
These started off with a base of NYC Robin’s Egg Blue, I let that dry completely and then applied the vinyls and two coats of Finger Paints Hue Brighten My Day. I matted them with Pure Ice Frost Finish Matte Topcoat, because matted glitter is my fave~
