Claire's Electric Neons

I'm  making my way through all the new nail polishes from my vacation haul! Here is another new brand of nail polish for me; Claire's Cosmetics and her Electric Neon minis paired with a matte top coat.


Neons are naturally matte compared to regular polishes but I added Claire's matte top coat for a totally matte finish. The electric neon set comes with 5 colors at 7.5ml each while the full size top coat is 15ml.


I found that I needed 3 coats of polish for a smooth finish and just like most neons the formula can be a bit difficult to apply since it dries so quickly. The matte top coat goes on super shiny but dries down fast to the matte finish.


Just for some fun I just added some colorful dots using all 5 colors. This reminds me of the circus! Stay tuned for more new nail polish brands and nail art :)

Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.

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…
