Green and Brown Polka Dot Look

Hi everyone

Here is a look that you can do without having to buy any extra tools at all.  If you don't have a dotting tool, you can simply use a Bobby Pin or if you want smaller dots, a toothpick.

Blue Look using Bondi polishes

Hi everyone.

I always thought that blue doesn't go well with my skintone, but lately, I love to use blue polishes.  The Bondi Polishes are kind of a hit and miss line for me.  Especially with the colors I got.  Some I love, and some I would probably never use.

Rimmel Polish : Dandelion Look

Hi everyone

This is a first time for me using Rimmel Polishes, and I really like it.  They advertise that they have an express brush, and it really does make the application faster.  Even though the brush is not as wide as the Essence polish brushes, I still like the brush of the Rimmel polishes as well.

I came across this look while I was browsing for some inspiration or new ideas, and I liked it a lot, so I recreated it into this look.

Golden Rose Blue and White Feather Glitter Polish

Hi everyone

If ever you thought that glitter polishes lasts long on your nails, this will make you think again.  This feather glitter polish from Golden Rose lasted on my nails so long that I eventually got bored of it and changed it.  It still looked the same as the day I applied it.

Fruity Friday - Fruit that benefits your skin

Hi everyone

For today's Fruity Friday, I want to incorporate actual fruit.

We all know how many health benefits fruit has when we eat it, but it can also be great if you use it on your skin.  Sometimes I just feel that I need something on my skin that is a natural as possible, and this is a more cost effective way to get all the benefits without leaving a huge whole in your budget.

Here I will give you just a little more information about the super 7 fruit and their benefits to your skin. (Just a disclaimer, do an allergy test 24-48 hours before on your inner wrist just to be sure that you will not get a rash.)

Quick and Easy Look using BioSculpture

Hi everyone.

Lately I've been trying to do nail art designs that looks pretty but takes the minimum amount of time to get done. We don't always have hours to spend on the nail art, but want our nails to look nice. Here is again a very quick and easy look if you want something nice with your nails but you're in a hurry.  In my opinion, you can make this look a bit more formal or by using different colors, a bit more casual.

Black makes it a bit more formal, but if you replace the black with any other colorful polish, it would be more casual for everyday.

We all need a neutral look every once in a while don't we?  I mean, when you're in a hurry getting ready for a night out, you nails kind of  has to go with whatever outfit you choose.  For me it is usually a mission enough to decide what to wear, never mind choosing an outfit that goes with my nails.

So here is just an easy look that looks nice for a night out and goes with anything.

Hi everyone.

Here is a quick and super easy look.  At first I was going to do this with dark blue and turquoise but at the last minute decided to wear a pink dress.  That is what is so nice about this look, it would look nice in any color.

French Manicure with 3D Nail Art

Hi everyone.

In my last online shopping spree, I thought these 3D bows were just adorable. Even though I like using crazy colors and doing crazy designs on my nails, I still love the plain French manicure the most. So instead of leaving it just like usual, I decided to add a little something extra this time.
