Pretty n' Pink Leopard Nails

I was going to save this mani for Pink Wednesday, but I'm just going to post it today. There are a few mistakes, some stray marks, but they don't look that bad in the pictures. I had a lot of fun doing these nails, and surprisingly did not take that long to do!

NOTW: Gold & Black Crackle

The other day I created another crackle nail art design! After I applied a base coat, like always, painted my nails with Wet n' Wild Wild Shine in Black Out. This color only takes one coat to be fully opaque! I found that this is a great black polish. Once that was dry, I applied one fairly thick coat of Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat in Antiqued Gold. At first this color did not crack that much, it took about 5 mins to get the full crackle effect. I swear as the days go on my polish keeps cracking!

I am very happy with his Crackle overcoat. I heard from some people that this nail polish did not crack at all, but it sure does! The great things about it is that it does not flake off like my Klean Color Crackle polish!

TAG: Fall Loves

I am doing a tag that my friend Ariel (chiclookxo.blogspot.com) posted that Macbarbie07 on Youtube recently created. This tag has a variety of fun questions about fall and Halloween! So here are my Fall Loves! 

Top 5 Makeup Items:
As you can see I had to add a lot of eye makeup. First is Maybelline XXL PRO Extensions Mascara. I absolutely love this mascara! It come with a mascara primer and when you apply that it makes your eyelashes super long! 
The NYC Liquid Eyeliner is also amazing. The brush that is in the tube works very well. The eyeliner stays on for 12+ hours with no smudging or flaking! It also does not run easily.
The bronzer listed is the Physicians Formula Bamboo Silk Bronzer. This bronzer is super silky and has a wonderful natural color to it. It also comes with a lighter color, so your face does not end up being one big orange!
I have to mentions my Joe Fresh Eyeshadows again! I love love love these eyeshadows as I have mentioned before. They are beautiful colors and very pigmented. Cant get enough of them :)
Lastly I am also loving this palette from Ardenz. I have already hit pan with 3 of these colors, but that is because I love these colors. They are perfect neutral colors for fall.
Favorite Hair Product:
As fall and winter are slow but fastly approaching, Mmy hair and skin get so dry in these seasons, so I need to apply a good hair treatment to keep it hydrated. My favorite is the Garnier Fructis Deep Repair Hair Masque. I apply it in the shower after I shampoo about once a week. The directions say to leave it on for 5-10 minutes and then rinse it off. I notice right after I get out of the shower that it really works - and works well too. The smell is also amazing, it is citrus and refreshing.
Favorite Nail Polish:
I almost couldn't have picked one specific polish for fall, I had at almost 10 polishes in mind! The best one I chose for fall is Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro in Violet. This is a deep vibrant violet color that has a bit of blue to it too. It is an amazing color. I did a nail art design with it last week, and did not want to take it off. The brush to it is super wide and one stroke covers just about your whole nail! It also last super long. It says 10 days, but didn't chip before 6 days!
Favorite Fall Scent:

I love this La Senza Sweet Embrace Body Spray. It has fruity scent but does not remind me of spring fruit but fall fruit. Its a perfect fall sent. I also love the smell of Thanksgiving Dinner. The smell of cooking turkey and its other meals, is just a wonderful smell. 

Most worn accessory:

 My most worn accessory is big chunky jewellery! I love big necklaces, especially owls, and big rings! Ive been wearing them a lot lately and love the funky style that they give to any outfit. If you don't have some of these big jewellery pieces, go and get some! :)

Most worn clothing item:
Lululemon Pants! I wear these so often its ridiculous. I do sports a lot so I am used to wearing athletic pants. I don't have any pair in particular, but they just look great with most flats, booties/boots. 
Who is my Fall Style icon?

My fall fashion style icon is Demi Lovato. Ever since her single skyscraper came out, I have been in love with her. I find Demi to be just an inspiration to me, and I feel I can relate to her seeing how the struggles that she had, have affected me as well. 

I love the style that Demi has in her Skyscraper music video. The feather hair extensions, chunky jewellery, and cross earrings. I love the way that she wears them, so my fall style icon is most definitely Demi Lovato.  
You are going to a corn maze, what do you wear?
  The outfit that I would wear would be this cute top from Bluenotes, Lululemon Pants, and Purple Toms to bring out the purple in my shirt. Toms are not only in style and cute, but they are super comfortable! Depending on what the weather is like, you can always wear a black cardigan with this cute outfit!
What is your favorite Halloween movie?
Still to this day I do not watch scary/ horror movies. I have had bad experiences in the past watching them so I am going to pick a cute kids Halloween movie. 
  Winnie the Pooh Frankenpooh is such a cute Halloween movie, and still to this day I can still remember watching it every Halloween as a kid!
What is your favorite Halloween candy?
I don't have a favorite Halloween candy since I do not eat candy or chocolate, but the Halloween chocolate I like as a kid was the Crunchie chocolate bars. :)
What are you being for Halloween?
That is a very good question! I don't know exactly what I want to be, but I have an idea of a female sailor or a pin-up like girl something like this: 
 I think this is a cute costume to wear! What do you guys think?
Let me know, or got some great ideas? I would love to hear them! :)
And that's the end of this Fall Loves tag! This was really fun to do, and I challenges all my followers or anyone else who reads my blog to do this too. I tag you! :)

Tips For Healthy Hair!

Isn't it every girl's dream to have long and healthy Mermaid-like hair!? Long, flowing, beautiful hair? Well, it is for me and I wanted to share some of my tips that got my hair to be super healthy and grow long fast!
The above picture is what my hair looks like. It was French Braided, which is why it looks wavy. (Sorry for the darkness of the picture, it was taken at dust while I was vacationing at the Lake.) With these tips, I hope that your hair can become the healthy-est it has in years!

Tips For Healthy Hair:
1.  DO NOT wash your hair everyday. This may seem gross to some people, but it is harmful to your hair to wash it everyday. Your hair needs the natural oils from your hair. Try washing your hair every second or third day.
2. Use as little heat products as possible. This includes thing like:
-Hair Dryers
- Flat Irons
-Curling Irons
-Heated Curlers....ect. 
If you HAVE to use heated products, make sure they are ceramic (ceramic does not damage you hair as much as cheap metal ones). Also always remember to use a good heat protector to protect your hair!
3. Try to avoid damage by:
-Wearing your hair in messy buns : these can cause split ends
-Flat ironing your hair everyday (or often)
-"Frying" your hair in any way

A few extra tips:
-Air dry your hair or use cool air to dry your hair when wet (eg. A fan, or use the cool setting on you blow dryer)
-French braid your hair or wear your hair natural often
-Always use a heat protector 
-Buy a flat & curling irons that are ceramic - not metal
-Deep condition your hair once a week
-Buy shampoo & conditioner for dry and/or damaged hair
- Try to get shampoo that it sulfate-free, this is more better for your hair
- Trim your hair regularly, this will prevent split ends or will trim them off and not make them worse

Following these tips / tricks will help your hair. I only flat iron my hair when I absolutely have to. I have been French Braiding my hair for almost a year and a half, hardly flat ironing my hair, and it has grown SO much! 
If any of these tips work for you, or you plan on using some of these tips let me know how they work for you! I love comments :)


August Favorites!

It is just about September now, the Summer is weather almost done, and Fall is just about here. This year Summer just flew by! This summer I did not use very many makeup products and wore the same look.  With saying that, my August Favorites are not all that interesting. Hopefully  September will be better!

 In this group photo are my makeup favorites. It consists of: Joe eye shadows in Gold Rush and Chocolate, Jane No Show Concealer, NYC Liquid Eyeliner, Maybelline New York Pulse Perfection Vibrating Mascara, Maybelline New York XXL Pro Extensions Mascara, and Softlips Pure Lip Balm. 
I would have to say that I absolutely LOVE all these products! The eyeshadows (that I have done a tutorial with) are nice and pigmented, and are shimmery which I also love. The concealer is just wonderful, it covers everything very well, especially darkness under the eyes. The liquid eyeliner is very good as well, it is very easy to use and is very pigmented. The Mascaras are just fabulous! They make my eyelashes very long, some days they touch my eyebrows. The are great when used either together or alone. I would recommend them to anyone! And lastly the lip balm, I have already done a review on it, so to see how I like it, go check that out! 

In this group photo, these are my non-makeup favorites. It consists of: Garage knitted off-shoulder top,  Owl Necklace, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Polish in Blizzard Blue, Rimmel London Base Coat Top Coat Pro, Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Top Coat in Nude,  Curel Itch Defense Lotion, and L.A. Express Sunglasses. I would have to say for these too that I LOVE all of them. The 3 that stick out the most to me would have to be the Blizzard Blue nail polish, Curel Lotion, and the owl necklace. The color of the nail polish is SO BEAUTIFUL! I have been wearing it on my toes just about all summer. The lotion is also very good, it makes my legs feel like as soft as satin! And lastly the owl necklace.

I had to add a picture just of it to show how cute it is! Right now I have a thing for owl necklaces, or anything with them. I love this necklace, and got it at Ardenz for very cheap!

And that's  it for my August Favs! Hope you guys had a great Summer!
