Bridal Bling V French Manicure

June brides, this is for you! Would you like to do you own manicure for your wedding day? I'm certainly thinking that I will for my day. Since it's wedding season and I have two cousins getting married this month, I thought this would be the perfect time to bring out the french manicure (with a twist) and bling them out to fit in with the celebrations.


These are pretty simple DIY nails. Here's how I got this done:
1. Apply a base coat and then two coats of a sheer pink polish such as Kleancolor Sheer Pastel Nude.
2. Using a white stripper brush polish outline a "V" shape to the tips of your nails. Fill in with the white. This is your twist on the classic french manicure which requires french manicure strips. 
3. Apply a top coat to seal in your design.
At this point this is what you will have, and you can stop here if you like this simple look.


I took it a bit further and added some rhinestones to bring just a touch of bling to this design! One stud for each nail and a "V" for the accent nail. Perfect for weddings :)
Here I'm using my BornPrettyStore wax pencil to apply their 2mm clear rhinestones. Feel free to use the coupon code BBEEJ61 for a 10% discount.

Wishing you a wonderful wedding season!

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…
