New Year's Eve Nails

Hey guys! I just wanted to share with you my New Year's Eve manicure! I used Wet n Wild's Black Creme and Give Me A Price Quote from their Coloricon collection. The only this I didn't like was I had to apply three top coats because of the glitter. Other then that both colors are amazing and I want all of the other colors in the Coloricon collection now! Hope you all have a safe and fun night! See you all next year ;)

Plum Night

For years I have been on a quest for a great plum nail polish and I finally found it!!! Revlon's Plum Night is the most gorgeous plum color. The consistency is very watery so I had to apply three coats to get the desired color. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Eve!

Ruby Ribbon

I was feeling a bit festive today so I decided to wear Revlon's Ruby Ribbon on my nails! This is such a beautiful rich dark red with a bit of shimmer to it. I love this color because you can wear it two different ways. You can wear it as a matte suede like it comes or throw on your favorite top coat and have a glossy finish. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday week!

Green Smokey Eye

Hey Guys! So I decided to come at you with a simple green smokey eye look today. I love this look because you can wear it during the day to work and also when you go out with the girls! I hope you enjoy this tutorial!

What I Used: 
Urban Decay Naked and The Dangerous Palette
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Maybelline The Falsies in the color Black Drama 
ELF Liquid Eyeliner in Black 
ELF  Hypershine  Gloss in the color Joy 
Equate Beauty Lotion 
Urban Decay Shadow Brush 
ELF Professional Defining Eye Brush 

First I started off with a nice clean face and just added a bit of the beauty lotion for moisture. Then I applied Urban Decay's Primer Potion all over my eye.

Once that dried I applied The color Naked all over my lid with the Urban Decay Shadow Brush . 

With the Urban Decay Shadow Brush I then took the color Mildew from the Urban Decay Dangerous Palette and applied that to my lower lid. 

After that I went in with my ELF Professional Defining Eye Brush with the color Buck and defined my crease 

Then just add your eyeliner and mascara. I used  ELF Liquid Eyeliner in Black and Maybelline The Falsies in the color Black Drama. 

Finally, add your favorite lip gloss or lipstick. I used my favorite lip gloss from ELF's Hypershine collection in the color Joy.

Hope you enjoyed! See you guys next time!

NOTD: Newspaper Nails!!

Hey guys! That's right I jumping on the band wagon and getting hip with the newspaper nails! These were super simple and fun to make. Hope you enjoy and if you try them out yourself post a picture on my facebook

First your going to want to cut 10 paragraphs out of your local newspaper and them them aside with a cup of 70% Isopropyl Alcohol.

Second, pick out and paint your nails with any desired color you would like. I chose OPI's Skull and Glossbones for an more newspaper color. 

Next you will dip your nail in the alcohol for 5 seconds. When you take your nail out of the alcohol  place a strip of the newspaper across the nail and press down for several seconds. When you remove the newspaper the image will be transferred onto the nail. 

Finally just slap on a top coat to seal in the picture and you are done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I'll see you next time! 


Tokyo Peal French Manicure and Leopard Chicago Champagne Toast

Hey guys! Sorry It's been so long, my little munchkin got sick so I had to take care of her. While I was away I did several new nail looks. Since I was hanging out with family this weekend I was able to use my two aunts and gave them manicures. On my first victim I did a french manicure with SinfulColors Tokyo Peal. Simple, Sweet, and Classic! On my other victim I went a bit more wild yet still girly. I used OPI's Chicago Champagne Toast as the base color, OPI's You Don't Know Jacques! SUEDE as the leopard print along with Konad's special polish in black for the accents. I had tons of fun using all of  these beautiful colors and even trying to free hand the Leopard prints! Hope you enjoy!

What I Used:
OPI Natural Nail Strengthener as a base coat 
2 Coats of SinfulColors Tokyo Pearl 
Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat

OPI Natural Nail Strengthener as a base coat
2 Coats of Chicago Champagne Toast

Lady Like Leopard

Hey guys! Today's manicure comes from Essie's 2011 fall collection with the color Lady Like. Lady Like is a beautiful nude/dusty pink even though in the picture it looks a bit more purple. I paired this color with OPI's You Don't Know Jacques! SUEDE for the leopard print.

Turquoise & Caicos

I am absolutely in love with this color! Essie's Turquoise & Caicos is the most beautiful turquoise color I've seen. I usually only wear bright colors in the summer time but since I pit this color on my opinion has changed. I say BRIGHT COLORS ALL YEAR ROUND!! You could do so much with this color for winter. You could add snowman, snowballs, snowflakes, have a winter wonderland on your nails.

Significant other color

So I tried to do a more romantic/girly look today but failed horribly! First I had to use 4 coats of O.P.I's significant other color because it was so sheer. Then when I went to stamp my nails the stamp only covered half of my nail. Overall It's very pretty and It's growing on me.

 I decided to bring out my M.A.S.H plates to play! On my nails I have O.P.I's Cuckoo For This Color with Konad's special polish in silver! CFTC is such a rich and creamy polish that really you could go just use one coat of it. I highly recommend  getting this color if you love green!

Getting Started!

 Hello and welcome to my new blog! I'm really excited to be stepping out of my comfort zone and learning to express myself through the world of blogging! I am very shy so I tend to keep to myself and the same routine every day. So by starting this blog I'm hoping I can break out of this "zone" and discover new things about myself while maybe even helping others. Lets get started!
 My name is Jasmine. I'm a 22 year old retail worker stuck in my "I'm only going to work here so I can pay for college" job. I have a beautiful daughter who is about to turn a year old on Halloween and an amazing husband who I married in June of this year. I enjoy anything to do with hair, nails, makeup, fashion, nature, being thrifty or creative. 

 With this blog I'm really hoping to tap into the hair, nails,fashion and makeup area seeing as I love to watch all the Guru's on YouTube! Well enough rambling....LETS BRING ON THE FUN!
