Wet n Wild – Wild Shine #469 is a clear coat packed with light colorful sparkles
I used 2 coats of both polishes to get the above look. Simple, but still pretty. You can’t go wrong with some sparkle in your life.
Pinterest Success! I’ve been seeing all these awesome water marble nails popping up on pinterest. The first time I tried them it was a fail. Everything that could go wrong did. So learning from my past mistakes I decided I would try again and this time I got better results. Finished it off with one accent glitter nail. Have fun with your nails
What You Need
Quick run through
Prepare your nails. I like to paint them white first to make the colors pop.
Than use tape around the skin of your nail to make sure you don’t get polish all over and believe me you can’t skip this step. It WILL be a big mess.
Pick out your colors. I picked pink & blue.
Fill up a plastic bowl with water that is room temperature.
open your polishes let one drop go into the water. Don’t drop it from too high or it will just fall to the bottom of your bowl and won’t spread across the top of the water. Take your second color and let another drop fall in the center to create a bulls eye. Keep going until your satisfied.
Use a tooth pick to make a design in the polish.
Then dip your finger nail into the water. The design should be stuck on your nail now. Pull the tape off. Wait for it to dry and put a top coat.
I first tried with some cheap no name dollar store nail polish. It didn’t turn out. It worked best with OPI & NYC. I haven’t tried it with any other brands.
Don’t use nail polish that is too thick. It won’t spread properly.
Make sure your water is room temperature.
Don’t take to long while putting the drops in the water.
Picture tutorial coming up…
Until than you can find some awesome pic/video tutorials online.
Ever since I saw the brush holders at Sephora I loved the idea, but I never went ahead and made my own until recently. I searched for vase filler like I read many people have used, but all the ones I found looked like they would have scratched up my brush handles. I passed and continued to look for something else. Finally found some tiny beads with no holes in them. Perfect! In total it only cost me $5 and I got everything from my local Dollarama. You could always decorate your holder with ribbons, gems, etc…
I love having my brushes all within arms reach when doing my makeup. Note to self…I need to clean my brushes.

Homemade Cat Litter Mask
Yes you read the correct & you might have recently heard about Snookie from Jersey Shore using cat litter as a facial mask. The little tip comes from Diane Irons a beauty expert who claims it is made from the same ingredients found in the $100 clay facials at spas. Now when shopping for cat litter for your face (wow it’s weird writing that or even thinking about ) make sure you read the label . You will be looking for one that is “sodium betonite clay” or “100 percent natural clay.”
Check back later this week for the second part of the post…More Facial Masks & Scrubs coming your way
Here I have Sally Hansen Moist & Matte lipstick in Chiffon. I came across this while in Dollar Rama yesterday and decided to get it since it was only $2. You can’t go wrong with that price. It’s a great color that can be worn on a daily basis for day or night. I don’t mind the applicator, but some might. You twist it up like any other lipstick, but the product comes out through the little holes on the top. It contains Black currant extract & vitamins.
It’s like a barbie pink when applied. It leaves my lips feeling moist and soft. I like that it’s matte and not overly shiny, but if that’s the look your going for you can always put some extra gloss over. I noticed a bit of a minty/vanilla scent to it, but it’s not over powering. I’m not a huge lipstick fan because I can never find colors I really like on myself, but I actually really like this one and I can see myself reaching for this often.
