Kat Von D Tattoo liner review and wing Practice!

Hey loves! I recently picked up a new eyeliner from Sephora and wanted to put  up a review! I have been using this Kat Von D  Tattoo liner since I got it fr on Saturday..I liked it so much that I purchased two more on the Sephora website that same night ha ha. 

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper (black)

The tip is amazing! The application is smooth and precise.

This is my eye with NO makeup on...please don't be scared ha ha it gets better...

I was never good at applying a wing but I always Loved the classic look so much...and then I found  Beauty Fulfilled. This is one of my favorite blogs to read. Kaushal is a sweetheart and has some very informative posts! She posted this very helpful tutorial with tons of pics Awesome winged Liner turorial! I have it book marked because I love the way she does her wing so much.

I am still learning but this is WAYYY better then what my liner looked like before...yikes! I was a hot mess ha ha. I am going to keep practicing so it will be perfect! I love this eyeliner..from the application to the bold black line it makes to the fact that it stays put and dries almost instantly. What is your favorite liquid eye liner? I am still open to trying different ones and would love to know what you ladies use! Thanks for reading!

Easy Sponge Manicure!

Hello Friends! I got the idea for this blue sponged gradient manicure from the Lovely Leann from Do Not Refreeze (check out her version HERE). This Manicure is SUPER easy and it came out great!

ONE coat of China Glaze Bahamian Escape a pale blue creme for the base. Then I used one of those cheapy eye shadow applicators (you can buy them at CVS if you don't have any) to sponge on China Glaze Sky High-Top a  pearly blue color that I don't use enough..and then Finally I sponge on  the Darkest blue China Glaze Sexy In The City about half way up.

One coat of China Glaze Wireless Holographic Top coat for extra shimmer..and it was all good.. Very Pretty and easy manicure..Thanks Leanne for the Idea..I love your blog and will continue to copy your awesome Manis!

Thanks for  reading loves I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

Mall Haul!! Sephora, Lush, and MAC goodies!!

Hey Beauties! Today  I went shopping and had a blast!  I went to Sephora, Lush, and MAC. Check out what I picked up! It was so hard not to spend more..But I am going back out next week so I should have a SUPER haul for ya!


Like the rest of the world I was looking for the Urban Decay Naked Palette but no luck! Oh well..I am going to go hunting for one next week and I WILL find one ha ha. I still managed to pick up some great stuff!
Probably the raddest tweezers ever!
Back of the tweezers..SUPER CUTE!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner...perfection!

Look at that Line..dries fast and does NOT budge! It's going to make the perfect wing.


Two Bath Bombs, Mint Lip Scrub, and a free sample of Karma soap. I love free samples!

Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb..hahahaha How cute is this little guy? The Girl at Lush was soo Helpful!  She  gave me and my little one a demo of the bath bombs and my kiddo was FASCINATED with it!! This is how the Lush Website describes this bomb "A Bath Bomb that will send little ones off to sleep? Does not compute! Drop it in the bath with baby bots to calm them down. They'll soon be dreaming of electric sheep with a sleep-inducing combination of lavender and sandalwood oils." Sounds awesome!

A refreshing lip scrub..My boyfriend and I decided that it smells like after you bite into a york peppermint patty. It has a hint of Chocolate smell  and its a sugar scrub so it tastes great!


I have been wearing this perfume for years! This is Pinkaura (pink top). I also like the one that has the blue top and the white top is lovely also. I don't really know how to describe them though..All I can say is if you have never smelled them go to MAC and give them a whiff!
Do you guys use any of these products? Let me know what you think. Thanks for reading and following if you have!

Oooops! Custom painted Nail Fail

Hey loves! I was feeling a bit creative the other day and decided to do this kind of pirate manicure inspired by the EXTREMELY talented Robin Moses check out her blog here Well it was worth a try ha ha.

China Glaze Liquid Leather as the base.

I really need to cut down my brushes better. I think I could do a much better job if I had better tools. Maybe..ha ha. 


My paints and other tools that I used. I don't usually use a pice of paper for the paint but I couldn't find my palette or any tin foil so I had to improvise. I will be doing more custom painted Manicures..I definitely want to try a dinosaur manicure. Stay tuned loves! Thanks for reading!

All the tea in China

Hello Pretty Ladies! It has been a very long time since I have worn a red polish. This is my favorite one. OPI Quarter of a Cent-Cherry. I have so many red polishes and it seems like they are all OPI. Believe it or not I used to only stick to red,pink and silver polish. I was inspired by a Chinese restaurant on a TV show for this Manicure. The tables had a beautiful deep red table cloth and gorgeous Gold accents. So here is my Asian inspired Manicure.  I hope you guys like it!

OPI Quarter Of A Cent-Cherry is the Base.

China Glaze Passion with Konad Plate M83. The design kind of reminds me of tea leaves. It's awesome I love this plate!
Ooops...wasn't paying attention and messed up on the pointer finger. my bad ;)

What do you guys think? I personally am really digging the Red and Gold Combination on my nails. This one is a keeper! For a few days at least! Thank you so much for reading dolls!

Hello Beauties! I hope you are all having a great weekend! So far mine has been FUN! Yesterday my little family and I went to Flagstaff. I was there to see the amazing Hieroglyphics. This was their 20 Year Anniversary show so I had to travel the few hours to see it and I am glad I did. It was an amazing show!  Here is the manicure that I did for the concert...
I didn't want to go girly at all so I went with Orly Goth a glittery Black for the base..with China Glaze Lemon Fizz for the Konad Design.

Houndstooth is my favorite pattern. I recently got SIX new Konad plates and this design is so cool! This is from plate M63.This Houndstooth is so much better the one on the Bundle Monster Plate. Its bigger so you get better coverage with one stamp.

I was so worried that I would get a chip in polish that I brought  my nail tools with me. ha ha! Luckily no chips I just put on an extra coat of Seche Vite before the show and I was ready to party! and I did PARTY!  I lost my voice and had some drinks did a lot of dancing. I also met some cool people! 

I got a few compliments on this mani, I can tell I did a good manicure when strangers stop me to tell me they like my nails (especially when a guy stops me ha ha).  All in all I think this was the perfect Manicure for the night!

Thanks for reading and following if you have!

Hello Lambs! This post is dedicated to my latest Obsession! Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars. I have heard a lot of buzz on the interwebs about these highly pigmented Lip glosses so I decided to give em a try. I am so glad I did! I can't wait to collect them all.

The packaging is pretty simple..It was delivered through the USPS and the wait wasn't long at all. I got my shipping confirmation on a Tuesday and they were in my mailbox on Thursday.  :)

 So many great things about this product..Besides the amazing bold color and the lightweight feel you only need a drop of this on a lip brush. you DO NOT want to apply this straight from the tube to your lips. you will be putting on WAY too much. 

This is about all I need. I use  a bigger dot of product because I have big ol  soup coolers! h H


Anime (w/ flash)
Anime is one that I have had my eye on forever! Bright Neon Pink. This stuff is AMAZING its not heavy or sticky its perfect and it stays FOREVER! Just a dot is all you need and it lasts a very long time. One application lasted no lie, for at least six hours.
One down side to these is they so stain a bit. you don't want to get these on your clothes.

Anime (no flash)
This is it after ONE application HOURS later. I couldn't believe it.. well worth the price!
Each lip tar is $13.00 but it is worth it since you only need a tiny bit.  I purchased my Lip Tars online here  If you love makeup you NEED to try this.
