|My lashes aren't very short but they also are not very long and full so when applying mascara those are the two main things I try and achieve.|
I take my favourite eyelash curler from Tarte and Curl my lashes
Next up I take the Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara and coat my lashes, winging out the outer corner. I use this mascara to separate, define and add some length to my lashes
Immediately after I take my L'Oreal Voluminous mascara and coat and wing out my lashes. I find this mascara is great for adding volume right at the root, as well as adding length.
As a preteen, I poured myself into magazines like CosmoGirl and Seventeen pining over beauty products and soaking in tips. I believe I am and always will be a product junky! My blog focuses on beauty products with DIYs, reviews and tutorials.
Today's post is all about my Pursuit for the Nude Nail.
I love neutrals. When it comes to my makeup, my style and my nails I continually choose neutral palettes. Over the years I have been searching for the perfect nude nail color-one that combines light color with opacity. Today I chose four colors to share with you. Two to steer clear of and two perfect formulations:
I would describe Revlon Sheer Pink as milky. The color is translucent and streaky, two components I avoid in a polish. In the photo, you can still see the whites of my nails, even after 3 coats. On my ring finger you can see how streaky this formula is.
I love the shade of Julep's Kelly. It is a beautiful blush color. Unfortunately, I find this formulation to be messy and streaky. Reaching opacity is nearly impossible. Plus, it only lasts 24 hours, at most, before chipping. You can see my full review of Julep polishes here.
OPI's Samoan Sand is a beautiful taupe with sepia undertones. It combines color and opacity for a lovely nude nail. Pair it with OPI's Black Shatter for an intense look (see it here).
Essie's Sand Tropez is my favorite shade, nude or not, of all time. I was sent this polish by my blog friend, Drinkcitra (I think she knew how much I would love this color). It applies opaque and appears as a light beige. Plus, it lats days without chipping. I love to add a little glitter to pump up the look.
Let me know your thoughts on any of these shades. I would also love to hear about your favorite nude nail colors!
I can't even wrap my head around the fact that October is over and Christmas is in 44 days! It's my favourite time of year and I can not wait for snow,christmas music, gift shopping, and candy cane ice cream(it's delicious)
|Jouviance rejuvenating anti-aging cream: 50ml $93.50|
"formulated to hydrate and increase the firmness of your skin"
This sounds like a nice product, for the price of the full-size bottle it better be!
|Zoya nail polish in "Rory" (Full Size): 15ml $8.00|
I love Zoya nail polishes, they have a great formula but I was super disappointed with the color I got in my box.
Do you guys think it's worth the $21 per month? Let me know!
