Simple Lace Nails


Hi everyone! Second post today is this cute and simple lace nails! I wanted to do a simple french but thought that was a bit too boring. So here I added a very simple lace element to the design, but still kept it simple and clean. Hope you like it ♥♥

Click the video below to see how it's done:



♥♥♥ Products Used ♥♥♥
♥ OPI Nail Envy http://amzn.to/18VEGNu
♥ Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Pink Blink http://amzn.to/1eEV3pj
♥ Sinful Colors Snow Me White http://amzn.to/17QYwMK
♥ Seche Vite Top Coat http://amzn.to/17XCfLt
♥ Nail Art Dotting Tools http://amzn.to/15SzMpx



What do you think about this simple lace nails design? Would you give this a try? Remember if you want a different color look, feel free to change up the colors or add glitters/rhinestones to give your designs more bling bling~ You may keep the nails nude and only paint the white lace part at the tip for more elegant/sophisticated look. Or you can paint your nail nude and add black lace at the tip.

Thanks for checking and have a fabulous weekend!!! ◕‿◕

NARS Mata Hari Blush (Review and Swatch)


NARS' Mata Hari blush is one of my favorite summer blush, and probably is my favorite blush all year round. Mata Hari is a beautiful dusty rose matte blush. On NARS's website, the color is described as "pink with a race of crimson". It looks very flattering and natural on the face, plus it's matte! 


The packaging comes with a black matte rubberized finish that looks slick and compact.



Back side, made in Canada, 0.16 oz/ 4.8 g



Isn't it so gorgeous? The color is very pigmented, so it's important to use very light hand with it and slowly build it up if needed. It has a silky soft texture and a powdery-like feel, but not at all too powdery.



Here is the Mata Hari swatch on my bare arm, heavily swatched on the left, and semi-heavy blended-out swatch on the right. When applying this on the face, you only need very tiny bit of the product since it's really pigmented. The color is very easy to work with and blend, just use a light hand! (tapping your brush and/or use a stippling brush) This blush is so pretty on its own, but will look pretty with layering blush as well.

Readers, have you try NARS Mata Hari blush? How do you love it? What's your favorite NARS blushes?

Revlon Brilliant Strength Enamor (Review and Swatch)


I seriously love Revlon's new Brilliant Strength nail polish line. It claimed to have a built-in base and top coat which means you don't need base coat AND top coat with this. I personally think this is super awesome for people on the go and need to get their manicure done in no time! Enamor is a pretty and girly baby pink cream, a bit deeper than Revlon Colorstay Cafe Pink, 2 coats will give you an opaque and glossy finish ( I went for 3 coats here in the picture and sorry my manicure was not my best, the picture was from 3 months ago). The drying time is pretty fast, at least faster than I expected. Formulation is very smooth and not streaky.




The packaging is the same as Revlon's ColorStay line. The brush is wide and flat with a slight curve that makes the application way smoother and quicker than typical Revlon's nail polish brushes. I'm really glad that Revlon finally improved their brushes! One con - price,  which is definitely overpriced for drugstore polishes (I think CVS sells this for 8.49 or 8.99). Luckily there are sometimes sales on drugstore polishes, so shop around and give it a try!

Readers, have you tried any polishes from Revlon's Brilliant Strength line? What's your favorite?

NEW Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pango Peach (Review and Swatch)



I recently tried Revlon's new Super Lustrous lipgloss - in new packaging & formula, and I really liked it! The shade I picked up was Pango Peach - a lovely warm peachy pink shade with gold shimmers. 


The Packaging was pretty, and looks expensive. It comes with a round tube with a doe foot applicator. The texture was thinner compared to the original old square-tube super lustrous lipgloss, yet very lightweight and comfortable to wear on the lips. One thing I really liked was that it does not contain any scent/fragrance or taste to the gloss (at least I can't detect any).  


At first I was a bit worried that those shimmers in the tube might be too glittery, but I still gave it a try since I really liked this peachy pink shade.  The shimmers weren't so bad at all, it's not glittery, just beautiful shimmers that look very flattery and pretty on the lips!


The pigmentation is more on the sheer side, but in no ways clear. If wearing this Pango Peach lipgloss alone, its warm & soft peachy pink shade will slightly warm up the face and give a very natural looking which was something I was looking for, natural, wearable everyday type of gloss. It's also very pretty as a layering gloss on top of other lip products (I layered it on top of Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Honey , and it was so so pretty!)   

Readers, have you tried Revlon's NEW Super Lustrous Lipgloss? Do you like it? What's your favorite shades?
