Hello, again! I forgot to mention in my last post, but if you saw yesterday’s manicure you saw that I had to cut the nails. I am not that comfortable with long nails, but I am trying. So right now because my nails are very short, I am sticking to simple manicures. Today’s manicure was inspired by the weather. When I left my house around 6:15 a.m. the temperature was ten degrees. So I was then inspired to do a manicure that was reminded me of Spring. I am tired of wearing thick jackets, and I heard over the news that it might snow again. 

Anyways before I begin to rant, the products I used for this manicure were Wet n’ Wild’s, “I Need a Refresh-mint,” and the studs I used were also part the I heart Nail art Kit by Sally Hansen.

Finally, a somewhat more detailed post. Thank you for stopping by!

Hi, again! This post was originally just to review a new polish that I just purchased. The new polish that was purchased was from Sinful Colors. It is called Amethyst, number 978. The polishes from Sinful Colors only retail for one dollar and ninety-nine cents! The color is really nice, I only had to put two coats of the color, then a top coat to finish it all off.

But I also wanted to try to put some studs, so using black studs from the Sally Hansen I heart Nail Art Stud Kit. I only placed one stud on the base of my nail, but only for my ring fingers I stacked five studs on top of each other.

 Hopefully it will get warmer because here in New York, it got colder.  Anyways thank you so much for stopping by!

Hello, again! Sorry for the lack of posts, I am in college and for the past week I had to let my nails rest. But at the same time, I have been practicing a new technique. It is called the one stroke technique. The nails that I will show for today’s post were done by me, they are not the best that I have done, but these were more like practice nails. There is a tutorial on youtube, on how to get this look. All you have to do is type in cutenails, and the youtuber shows you how to obtain the design.

I am still working on the review for the lip crayons, but it is coming. For the base coat, I used a regular matte black polish. I used the one from Sinful Colors. In order to do the flower, I had to use regular acrylic paint that I bought from Michael's.  I wanted to post more nail art with flowers, because Spring is coming. Thank you for reading and for stopping by!

Hello, Belated Happy Valentine’s Day! I was supposed to post yesterday, but I had to take better pictures. For my nails I just  did a regular half moon manicure with red and silver, then using small beads and a red gemstone, made a bow. I learned this from two places, one from the book I borrowed from the library and from a youtuber, kirakiranail. Sorry this is a short post, the lip product review is coming out soon.

This is the finished product.

Quick Question: If you do read this blog, please give me your opinion, do you think that the lighting on the left or right is better?  Comment below and as always, Thank you for stopping by!

Hello again, I am back with a Valentine’s Day design. This will be a short blog post, sorry the pictures are not that nice. For today’s manicure I only used four colors. The light pink is from Avon it is called Orchid. The mint green polish is also by Avon it is called Jade. The dark pinkish/purple polish (if that makes sense) is called Pamplona Purple from O.P.I. Then it is just a regular white polish from Wet n’ Wild. The design on my second and third fingers were inspired from The Illustrated nail. The pinky and ring fingers were inspired from the Nailasaurus, and I will leave a link here as well. Sorry for the lack of details, these nails were more of an experiment. I am still working on them and I will keep practicing.  

Thank you for reading, hopefully I will design something else soon. Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi snowflakes, apparently there will be a snowstorm coming over the weekend in New York. Anyways, this post is not about nails, but about lips. I recently went to Rite-Aid, and picked up five new lip products which I will show below. They are from the brand N.Y.C. Color, and they were on sale. The lipsticks were one dollar each, while the lip crayons (if that is the correct term) were 2.99, but it was buy one get one half off, so some money was saved. I will review each of these after trying them for a while, to give a good detailed review.

Thank you for reading this quick post, hope everyone is ok!

Heyyy, I am back again with a new nail post.  I think this might be a short post, because my next post will be a post about lips and different lip products. This is my first nail post that finally has some nail art. I recently went to the library, and I found a nail art book, so this nail design was inspired by one of the pages in the nail art book.

First I painted my nails with a gold polish. I used a gold polish from Pure Ice, but I could not find the name of
it (sorry.)

Then using a Kiss nail art brush, I painted two black lines on the side of my nails.

Lastly I used a toothpick, and I tried to draw some animal prints or design using black polish, only on top of the gold polish. I waited a few minutes and applied a top coat.


That is it! Thank you for stopping by, I hope all of you are safe and warm because in New York it is snowing, and it is very cold.

Hey, Hey! I am back with a simple swatch. I recently received my first nail mail, ever. I entered a giveaway on instagram and won 7 O.P.I. bottles. I am extremely happy and excited and thankful to God I won and to the instagrammer Anissa, or on instgram @ladybug857617 that hosted this giveaway. The color I am swatching from this giveaway is O.P.I.’s, That’s and “El” of a color. From the research I have been doing it is discontinued according to amazon. The color is really pretty it is red, with a small tint of gold sparkles.

The seven bottles I recently won.

That's an "El" of a color from OPI
