Sorry I haven’t posted on this site lately. This isn’t one of my manicure but I would like to share it anyways. One of my sister had purchased Heavenly Angel from Nicole by OPI and had tested it out with a silver polish, Avalanche, from China Glaze. She used the sparkle as a top coat and the combination works out perfectly. It’s very pretty.
Let me know how you all think.

Revlon finally has their magnetic nail polish line out. I have always wanted to try these magnetic polishes but they are usually very pricy. The price for these polishes was $10.49 but it was on sale at my local CVS for $4.99. I was so happy! I couldn’t resist so I grab one. At the time I saw four different colors. A shade of purple (which I got), a green, a silver/grey, and a brown. They were all very pretty. But since I was planning to share this polish with my sisters I think the purple suited all of us.
The bottle is shaped like all Revlon nail polishes. It’s nothing special. The only thing different is that there’s a magnet located on the top of the cap. And unlike the rest of the magnetic polishes out there this magnet design is a star. It’s very pretty.
The polish name I have gotten is called Pop Star. It goes on very smoothly. You only need to use one coat. Once the coat is applied quickly put cap back onto polish and place the magnet next to the wet polish. Slowly you’ll see the star design forming. This polish dries pretty quickly also, so make sure you work quickly. I’m happy with my purchase. The only recommendation I have is after the polish dries to put a clean coat. This way it would add a shine and it prevents the polish from rubbing off or chipping off that quickly. I didn’t put a clear coat on so I had to take off all my polish on the 4th day because the polishes on the tips of nail came off.
Who else had tried this new polish? Let me know how you guys think of it! Happy painting nails!

Target has been selling e.l.f. items for a while now. For those who are not familiar with e.l.f. Cosmetics…e.l.f. stands for ears, lips, and face. They are an international cosmetics brand based in New York City. All of their items are very affordable and most of their products range from $1-$5. Their items include make-up, skin care, and beauty tools.
So while shopping at a Target, I found the new e.l.f. fall 2012 line. Everything on display had a snake skin print on it. The item I was most interested in for course was the polishes. I saw around 5 different shades on display that day. There might be more out there that I’m not aware of. I apologize but I don’t have the names of the colors. For some reason they decided not to put names on the bottles. They are also in new bottles. The bottle for this partial line is a short cylinder shaped with black and gold snake skin print on the cap. It’s a very pretty look for this fall line.
Most of the colors were too dark for me so I picked the only light color in this collection which is a very pretty nude color. Application was very easy. I did use two coats thought. One coat was too thin and it was very streaky. The nail polish brush was a little on the stiff side too but for a polish that cost only $2 I really shouldn’t complain.
For those who haven’t seen the items yet go and get them out. I don’t think e.l.f. had posted items on their website yet.
Anyone who tried anything from the Python collection please let me know how you feel about them.

I almost brought more lip balm today. As you know I fell in love with my Strawberry Sorbet EOS (Evolution of Smooth) lip balm… And when I saw these new (I think they are new) flavors I got so excited.
I found this set at a Target. For $7.99. This makes them under $2.70 each. This is a great price. Usually they are around $3-$5 each. The three are Blueberry Potion, Watermelon Wonderland, and Sweet Vanilla Nonsense.
The EOS lip balms are all natural, 95% organic, paraben-free, has Shea butter, and Jojoba oil. All good stuff. Who wouldn’t want one of these?
Great gift set for the upcoming holidays. Maybe next time I’ll stop by Target and I’ll grab a set.
Anyone out there tried these EOS flavors yet? How you guys like them? Let me know.

Have anyone out there seen these cute newspaper manicures? Turns out they are very easy to create. I apologize that the one done below is a little bit messy since we didn’t do a quick clean up.
So to get started there are the things you need:
Nail polish remover
Nail Polish – Base Color
Nail Polish clear coat
Steps to creating your own Newspaper Manicure:
1) Apply a solid color base coat. We used the color green. Make sure the polish dries completely.
2) Cut small pieces of newspaper.
3) Soak your finger nail in rubbing alcohol for 5 seconds.
4) Quickly place a piece of newspaper clipping on your nail you have just dipped in the rubbing alcohol. Push it firmly down on nail for a few seconds.
5) Carefully peel off newspaper. The nail should now have an imprint of the ink from the newspaper.
6) Use a Q-tip and nail polish remover to clean up your nail
7) Apply a clear top coat. This will prevent the ink from the newspaper to get rubbed off.
8) Repeat steps above for the rest of your nails.
This manicure is very cute and is easy to create. Why don’t you guys all try it out and let me know how it turns out.
