Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by Your Partner

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by your partner. I wasn't able to do this theme since I don't have a partner so instead, I'm just sharing a simple summer skittle manicure.

Summer Neon Skittle Nail Art

Starting with my pinky, I used American Apparel Neon Yellow, American Apparel Neon Orange, American Apparel Neon Coral, American Apparel Neon Green, and American Apparel Neon Blue. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I used all American Apparel neon polishes since I thought they would look fun together as a skittle manicure. I also don't don't wear a lot of neons o having all these bright colors on my nails was fun. What do you think?

Purple Holo with Blue Abstract Floral Stamping

Monday, July 17, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I've been wanting to do some traveling this year or early next year so I've been doing some basic planning and researching. But before I finalize anything, I have to get a passport first. I've never traveled any where before other than Victoria two times so hopefully I can travel to another country soon. Anyways, let's see the nail art.

Purple Holo with Blue Abstract Floral Stamping

First, I used Layla Hologram Effect Nail Polish 04 Ultra Violet on all the nails. Next, I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish 9# with stamping plate BP-L052 from Born Pretty Store. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your entire order. Lastly, I finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Here's a closer look at stamping plate BP-L052. I really like how each design is so detailed and big. This stamping plate would definitely work for someone with either short or long nails too.

I was pretty pleased with how these turned out. I tried my best to get the image stamped as straight as I could on the nails and I think I did a pretty good job in the end. What do you think?

Dearberry Today Nail Lacquer #21 Pink Sprinkling

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Hi everyone! I have a quick polish swatch to share today so let's get right into it.

Dearberry Today Nail Lacquer #21 Pink Sprinkling is a bright pinky red creme. I got this polish from purchasing a Memebox a while back in a color themed box. I love a good creme polish and this one was pretty great. The formula was good and the application was smooth. I like that the brush on the polish is the wider flat type too. If Dearberry was available to me more readily, I would totally pick up some more colors since I enjoy the colors I already own. This is two coats.

This color is also perfect to wear during the warmer season of Spring and Summer too. The color isn't all that unique but the great formula and application on it makes it a pretty great polish for me. What do you think?

Nostalgic Nail Lacquer Rio

Monday, July 10, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! The weather has been warm but its not too hot every day which is good. I had a nice birthday so thank you everyone for the well wishes. As I'm getting older, one of my main things I want to do is travel so I'm going to start planning a trip for next year at least. Anya's, let's see today's polish.

Nostalgic Nail Lacquer Rio has a mix of blue and purple hexagon glitters with small holographic grey glitters in a clear base. I really like the mix of colors and the two different sizes of hexagon glitters in this polish. I found the polish to be very clear base heavy so I really had to apply a thick coat to get a good glitter coverage on the nails. Over than that, application on it was good for me. I did use a little of the dabbing method to get some glitters placed where I wanted it to be on the nails though. This is two coats over Nicole by OPI Alex By The Books.

I love the look of this glitter polish but wished it wasn't so clear base heavy. I think I'll probably try sponging the glitter on next time to avoid the bubbling from happening too. What do you think?

June 2017 Product Empties

Thursday, July 6, 2017

Here's my product empties for June. I was sad to see some things go but overall, I was pretty happy with what I was able to empty out. Let's see the products and what I thought of them then.

June 2017 Product Empties

1. Hello Everybody Nature Holic Body Lotion - Milk
This was my daily body moisturizer that I was currently using these past few months. I really liked it a lot too. It didn't have much of a scent to it and it was very hydrating on my skin. I like the packaging of it and it lasted me quite a while too. This would be something I would repurchase.

2. LadyKin Broccoli Extract 90% Essence Toner
This was the toner I was currently using and I really liked it a lot. Its suppose to moisturize and sooth the skin while providing a whitening effect. I didn't notice much whitening happening but I did like how these toner made my skin feel. This toner absorbed really quickly into the skin and helped to prep my skin for the rest of my skincare routine. I would totally repurchase another bottle too.

3. amie Radiant Dawn Exfoliating Daily Wash
This was my morning cleanser that I was using. I really enjoyed it too. I won this product in a giveaway and was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked it. It has exfoliating beads in it so I felt like it was really giving my skin a thorough cleanse. Definitely a product I would consider purchasing.

4. Rosemoon Rich 53% Collagen Smart Balm
This was my morning moisturizer that I was using. I felt like kept the skin hydrated throughout the day when I had it on. Since I do have dry skin, I liked this cream quite a lot because. The scent is a faint fresh smell which I like too.

5. Neutrogena All-inOne Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes
These are makeup wipes that removes all types of face, lip, and eye makeup. I don't wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis so I thought these did an okay job removing what makeup I have on. The cloths themselves weren't very moist so I found them a little on the dry side. Since it was on the dry side, I found myself having to really rub my skin to get the makeup off which I didn't like. Probably not something I would buy a full size of.

That's all for my product empties for June. I'm most sad to see the toner gone but hopefully after I used up all the other skincare products I have, I can purchase another bottle of it since I did really enjoy it. Let me know what you've emptied out this month too.
