Busy Girl Hitting The Beach

It's vacation time for me for the next 3 weeks and I always think of sun, sea and sand when it's my vacation. This year I will be heading away from that and instead crossing over the waters to Canada. So this fun, beach manicure will have to suffice this year while I go crazy shopping up the malls and taking in the beautiful landscape and sites in Toronto.

Beach Nails
To get these fun, beach nails here is what you will need:
  • Neutral: Off white or caramel color to represent the sand. I'm using China Glaze Classic Caramel
  • Light Blue: Color of the water. I'm using Sally Hansen Blizzard Blue
  • Dark Blue: Color of the water, to bring in more depth to the sea. I'm using Kleancolor Metallic Aqua
  • White: Foam of the water where the waves breaks on the shore. I'm using L.A Color Energy Source
  • Red: For the starfish. I'm using LA Colors Pop Art in Red.
  • Tools: Makeup sponge, painter's palette, top coat.


Tutorial:
  1. Start off with your base coat and then two coats of your neutral sandy base color. Allow to dry.
  2. Using the white polish apply to a makeup sponge and dab onto the nail bed. This will look like the froth of the waves. Apply in various patterns on each nail for a unique look.
  3. Using the light blue dab onto the nail lower than the white.
  4. Repeat step 3 using a darker blue but again a little lower than the lighter blue.
  5. Using a red stripper make little starfishes on the sand. Add a few white dots for dimension.
  6. Clean up and apply a top coat to seal in your design.

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
