Mint Apple Nails

Trying out trends can be fun and I love trying them while adding my own twist to make the trend my own. Mint coloured nail polish is all the rage at this time and while I’m not a huge green nail polish fan, this colour is soft enough to be wearable for me. If you want an inexpensive polish to try out this trend then give Sinful Colors Mint Apple a try. Two coats of this mint green with silver micro-shimmer polish makes for the basic manicure. For my twist, I added an apple on the accent finger. This is taking the concept of Mint Apple quite literally! 



 
The apple was simply painted on with a small nail art brush. If you want to create the apple, you will need a bright red like China Glaze Ruby Pumps, a brown colour like China Glaze Street Chic and dark green colour like Nail Fusion Vintage Green. 

 
Nail art take a little practice so just be patient and use small amounts of your polish at a time. If you apply a top coat over the Mint apple, you can easily wipe away mistakes immediately as they are made. Have fun!
Happy Mint Apples!

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
