Nail Challenge Day 18: Smokey Half Moons

I've never really ventured into the half moons. But now that I am here I truly like them. They are simple but elegant. Pair them with contrasting colours to see the true beauty of this design.

I first applied one coat of Sinful Colors You Just Wait, which is a soft pink with an iridescent shimmer. Next I applied some binder reinforcement stickers onto the nails to block out a half moon shape before applying China Glaze Smoke and Ashes (from the Hunger Games collection).



And only because I have two of the sweetest little angels as nieces, I graciously took their advice and spruced it up even more with these cute little stars.


Stay tuned for Day 19: Galaxies and be sure to stop by Jayne's blog Cosmetic Proof and Traci's blog DrinkCitra to see what gorgeous designs they also created for this challenge! 

Happy Half Moons!
XOXO

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
