New years nail look

 Here is a new years nail look
                                         These are the nail products that i am using. From left to right. Matte n a in blockbuster, pure ice in jaguar, and the l a colors art deco in white.

                                           I am also using the Orly top 2 bottom as a base coat and a top coat

                                         This is with the base coat on
                                          I painted two coats of pure ice in jaguar on all my nails expect the accent nail.

                                           On the accent nail i applied 2 coats of  the Matte n a in blockbuster

                                           I used the L a colors art deco and wrote 2013 on my nails. I then applied a top coat of the Orly  top 2 bottom over the top

This is a simple and quick look that is easy to do

Little haul

I picked up a couple of items at the store. Let me show you what i got.

                                         This is a limited edition from Loreal. Its the Voluminous million lashes diamonds..

                                           This brush is different than some of the other loreal mascaras. I have used this for a week. I dont see any difference in the formula compared to the other loreal mascaras. I also dont see that it makes my lashes  appear long or thicker.

                                             I also picked up the Loreal true match concealer.
                                         This is a creamy formula. It blends very easy. I want to continue to try this out but so far i have noticed that when i apply this to my undereye area, that it doesnt really stay put all day. It wears off throught the day.

Top 5 Foundations of 2012

I hope that you all had a great Christmas. I know that i  did. I will share with you in a video what i got.

Now on to the top 5 foundation that i have loved of 2012.

 5) MAC pro longwear foundation.

                                            This longwear foundation that gives up to 15 hours of coverage in any environmental condition. Lightweight and creamy with a sheer to medium coverage. Looked great during the summer with 100 degree weather.

4) NYX stay matte but not flat liquid foundation.

                                        Provides full coverage with matte results. This oil free and water based formula worked great during the hot summer months and still managed to look great.

3) Hard candy just face it one step foundation

                                       This all in one makeup is great for moms or students on the go. It is a primer, concealer, foundation and drys to a powder finish. It minimizes pores, regulates oil and reduces the appearance of fine lines.

2) Maybelline Dream smooth mousse

                                         This makes your skin look hydrated for up to 14 hours. This is also good for people with sensitive skin.

1) Revlon colorstay whipped creme makeup

                                        Time release formula balances your skin for a flawless look. Its all day flexable wear with no flaking, caking, or feeling heavy. This was my go to over the summer months with temperatures around 100 degrees.

I hope that this has been helpful.
Stay tuned for more of my favorites for 2012.

I got this polish in the Nail Art Society monthly subscription. I will post that video tomarrow.
Here is what i did.

                                            In blockbuster

                                           This is in Mystery

                                              i didnt use the glue that came with it but i did use this 5 second brush on nail glue.

                                         I applied one on each of my accent nails

I love the polish. I goes on matte and stays matte. The way it looks reminds my of velvet. I also love these colors. I also love that the stones had several different sizes to pick from.
