Quick and easy nail design for today! For this look you’re going to:
- Paint your nails with Zoya’s – Mira polish (or your favourite shade of purple. I also love China Glaze Spontaneous)
- After it is completely dry use Konad plate m65 and apply the floral design with your white stamping polish (or try Pastel Violet)
- Finish it off with your favourite top coat (I can’t even begin to describe how much I love the Seche Vite top coat)
I spent a lot of time (and money!) trying out different skin products throughout the years, and I wanted to share what works best for me.
I used to always use whatever random product looked cool at the drug store, but now I’ve moved on to exclusively using Kiehl’s products. There’s a few reasons for this…
- Obviously, because they work for me and I’ve seen amazing results
- I never feel pressured to purchase something when I walk into the store
- The staff are SO helpful in finding a product that is right for you, and sharing the success they’ve had with the product
- You get free samples with EVERY purchase
Here are the products I use every morning:
First, I wash my face with the Ultra Facial Cleanser
Then I use the Blue Herbal Lotion on areas of my face where I usually break out
Next I apply the Acne Blemish Control Treatment in the spots I normally break out
I finish it off with the Ultra Facial Cream on my entire face
That’s it! 4 easy to use products! Once the Ultra Facial Cream dries, I put my makeup on right over top. My skin care routine changes at night, and when I’m having breakouts and I’ll share those with you soon!
Today was a VERY happy nail mail day for me! Here’s what was waiting for me at the post office:
Coraline Nail Art Kit
This kit comes with 4 Coraline themed image plates, 3 stamping polishes, a stamper and a scraper. I’m VERY excited about this because I LOVE the movie Coraline.
Konad Image Plate m84 & Konad Image Plate m85
Konad 2in1 Stamper/Scraper
I’m very excited to try this out! I find using the Stamper and Scraper separately a bit annoying because my stamper always rolls off my table.
Nail Stamping Machine
I can’t even begin to explain how excited I am about this! This machine was only $21.00, and it came with 7 polishes, 6 stamps and the machine. I’ll definitely make a video soon to show you how it works.
12 more image plates for the nail stamping machine
I bought these mostly the clean up my messy nail painting. I find Q-Tips a bit annoying because they’re not sturdy so I don’t have a lot of control – especially with my left hand.
I ordered 20 sets of these! This will allow me to show off more nail designs without actually having to paint my nails everyday. As much as I enjoy painting my nails, I’d get absolutely nothing else done if I had to do it everyday.
That was my haul from both WowSoCool and Maytheps. They both had excellent service and shipping times. Their policies state that shipping can take 4 or more weeks, but I received my orders within a week after they shipped (which was within 1 business day of my actual order). Maytheps prices are REALLY low so they do not offer discount codes, but they do offer a rebate program. WowSoCool will give you a 20% discount code to use, all you have to do is email them! I got mine within a few minutes so don’t let the fact that you need to email them stop you from asking for a code!
Today I’m going to share one of my favourite nail art designs!
To create this look you’re going to paint your nails 4 different colours. For the above look I used:
Then you will use Konad plate m57, and stamp with black stamping polish. Finish with a top coat and your done!
