Spring Flower Garden (Stamped)

I'm really hooked on nail stamping since it's such a quick way to dress up a plain old polish. Today's design was the first one done using my Konad polishes and plates with a spring inspired design.


Products used:
1. Stamper: Konad Double ended stamper
2. Scraper: Pueen scraping card
3. Polishes: Konad red and green
4. Stamping plates: Konad plates # 6 (index finger), 8 (pinky), 25 (ring finger), 54 (middle finger)
5. Base color: NYX Golden Lavender
6. Top coat: Seche Vite.



Tips and tricks with stamping:
1. For beginners: Get yourself some of the konad polishes especially the white and black, they work amazingly. 
2. Allow the stamped image to dry properly or use a thicker layer of top coat to prevent smearing the image (like i did above :)
3. Try adding two colors side by side to one image on the plate and scrape so they do not mix so you get a multicolor design.
4. Do not use the metal scraper that usually comes with the Konad sets, they scrape the plates badly. Use an old bank card or the Pueen scraping card instead.

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…
