Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by Your Mug

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Todays' Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by your mug. The mug I've been using hasn't changed at all from last time. So, its basically a dark blue colored mug with a lighter cream shade inside so I decided to create a design using similar colors to my mug. It's been a while since I've done a dry brush manicure so I thought today will be a good chance to do one.

Blue and Grey Dry Brush Nail Art

I used Finger Paints To-Teally Chic on all the nails. I used the dry brush technique with Ciaté Cream Soda and OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine!. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

This dry brush design is a lot more subtle than what I've done before but I really like how it turned out. It's subtle but its great if you want a design on the nails that's not too flashy. What do you think?

Love & Beauty Sand Lacquer Blue Jewel

Monday, November 13, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! Today I'm swatching a texture polish. I don't think I've ever done any swatch posts on a texture polish until now so let's get right into it.

Love & Beauty Sand Lacquer Blue Jewel is a medium blue texture polish packed with teal and gold flecks. The color of this texture polish is gorgeous and one I tend to gravitate towards. I purchased a set of these Love & Beauty Sand Lacquer polishes from Forever21 a while ago when texture polishes was starting to come out. I've tried out each color and I really like them a lot. The formula was on the thicker side but I didn't find application on it too hard. This is two coats.

Texture polishes are typically worn as is but if your not a fan of the rough texture it has on the nails, you can definitely still apply a top coat on top of it. It does dull the cool texture look to it but overall, the color is still pretty nice on the nails. What do you think?

October 2017 Product Empties

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Here's my product empties for the month of October. I didn't really finish one individual product this month but I did go through my makeup collection and decided to throw out a lot of products. The main reasons I decided to throw these out are either because they expired or I've haven't used them in a really long time. Hopefully next month, I will have actually products I've emptied to show.

October 2017 Product Empties

1. Miscellaneous Makeup Products
I was planning to create some manicures for my blog during the two days I have off work during one week but it was raining those two days so instead, I decided to go through my makeup collection. I have some makeup, not a lot but I haven't used quite a few of them in a couple of years so I thought it was time to throw some things out. Now that I look at it, it seems like a lot. Most of these products I decided to throw out were either because its expired or I haven't touched them in a while. I still have some makeup left but its all fits into two drawers instead of three now. I don't wear makeup all that often so I'm okay with parting with these even though its difficult for me to throw anything away.

Let me know what you've emptied this month. I'm a bit sad to throw these products out but I just don't use them anymore and its really bad to keep such old cosmetics around.

Abstract Galaxy Inspired Stamping

Monday, November 6, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I was in the mood for some simple galaxy nails so I created a pretty simple one here. The blue polish I used looked like outer space and along with the stars I stamped on, it resembles a galaxy to me.

Twinsie Tuesday: Stamping Decals

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is stamping decals. I was planning to do a full stamping decal manicure but I was a little pressed for time so I only did the stamping decal on one nail instead. So, let's go ahead and see the design then.

Purple and Pink Hearts Stamping Decal Nail Art

I used Sephora by OPI Metro Too Chic on all the nails. For the stamping decal I created, I used stamping plate BP-61 from Born Pretty Store along with Born Pretty Stamping Polish in Black, Julep Joy, and Julep Sylvia. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.
