Nails of the day! GLITTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been painting my nails a lot more lately because I have been getting some new colors. I have never really been that into painting my nails because my nails SUCK! LOL I can't get them to grow so they are short.
And yes, I need to clean them up but I was excited to show you guys and wanted to post right away! HAHA!!!

*Colors used:
Sally Hansen Blue It, OPI Last Friday Night and Maybelline Top Coat(seriously love this stuff! Without it my nails chip after a day with they stay for 5 days!!!!!)
Hope this inspires you to get out you polish and PAINT!

Loreal Studio Secrest Anti-redness primer

I seriously LOVE this product. It works very well at covering my redness. I have extremely red cheeks. This doesn't take them away but reduces the redness dramatically. I have always been self conscious of this and ever since I found out green cuts the red, I have been hooked. I have tried just about every drugstore product and this has been my fave. There is one at Sally Beauty Supply I want to try; As it is half the price of this and more product. It's a full ounce versus this at .68oz. I haven't found reviews for it anywhere so when I try it I will review it here.
I do find when I don't wear this under my foundation, it doesn't apply as smooth or last as long. This product would also work great for pimples, redness around the nose or anywhere on the face.
Hope this helps! Remember, if you have any questions, ask below! Would love to hear from you!

Here's to no more RED!

DIY Valentines Day card. *EASY!*

This card is so simple! And looks so cute.
All you do is take some thick paper(any color) fold in half, cut to the card size of your choice, cut a heart shape when the paper is folded but don't cut it out, leave some attached so it "pops out" when the card is open, as shown. Then use any color paper you like to make smaller hearts to glue onto the popped out heart. I just cut them out by hand, more unique. Took about 10 mins to do!
Perfect craft while you are snowed in (like me!).

Happy crafting. I will be back with a beauty blog next week!

Teal and grey.

I am a little disapointed with these pictures because the teal color didn't come through as bright on camera as it is on person. It's not super bright but brighter than this. *shrugs* I wanted to post anyway. I used my 88 shimmer palette from Coastal scents.
Add some color to your life today!
Happy Thursday everyone! :)

Products I loved in 2011

Here is a list of my fave products of 2011!
If you would like me to review any of these, comment me! <3

MAC Brave. It's a satin finish lipstick. Just LOVE this color on me.
Maybelline Colorsensational lipstick in Party Pink. I believe it is also a satin finish. A great lip color for when I am wearing a neutral eye.
Wet n Wild brow pencil. For .99 cents you just can't beat it!
Lancome Le Crayon Khol. My fave eyeliner EVER! It stays on my waterline the longest.
ELF setting spray. Love misting over my face after my makeup is done.
NYC Bronzer in Sunny. I am on my 3rd one. Love it!
ELF High Def. Powder. It makes my skin feel super soft. Love this powder.
Revlon Colorstay for oily/combo skin. If your skin is oily, I suggest trying this foundation! It lasts me about 10 hours before shine comes through!! :D
Loreal Studio Secrets anti-redness primer. This stuff does well at hiding my redness.
Garnier Skin renew anti puff eye roller. I apply this after I moisturize. Great product.
Urban Decay Naked Palette
Too Faced Natural Eye palette
MAC Naked Lunch shadow
ELF Day 2 Night quad. At $1 it can't be beat. The taupe shade is just a shade lighter than MAC Satin Taupe.
Those are the products that stand out to me most and were well used in 2011. Hope 2012 is a great one for you all!
Thanks for reading!
