NOTW featuring Konad!

Wow I'm finally back online after my power cord for my laptop shredded! After reading all these nailpolish blogs with wonderful konad designs, I had to take the leap and buy it. I thought konading would be difficult but its surprisingly not bad. Takes a little practice and can be a little messy, but the results and the joy in my heart when I look at my nails (cheesy, I know!) is totally worth it. I purchased my Konad kit on Amazon. It came with two Konad plates in m2 and m3, a stamper, a scraper, and 3 special polishes in red, white, and blue.
A brief how to: Select your design and using the special polish paint the desired image. Quickly scrape off excess polish and using the stamp pick up the image and transfer it on to your nail. Finish off with top coat.  They recommend using their special polish because it is thicker, but there are some regular polishes that work well also. Basically the thicker the polish the better it is.

Here is my first attempt:
I found that Sinful Colors Black on Black (only $1.99) works as a GREAT stamping polish! I used plate m2
Heres what I used:
1. Rimmel Base Coat Top Coat Pro
2. Wet N Wild Wild Shine in Metallica
3. Sinful Colors Black on Black
4. Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I can see how konading can become additive. The possibilities are endless!

Mini TJ Maxx Haul and Target Boots

TJ Maxx is my favorite store to shop at, since I love a good bargain . Brand name clothing, shoes, makeup, and housewares at awesome prices! I also love Target's clearance section which is where I picked up the boots. In addition to the boots, I also picked up two large lamp shades for $6 each!!

I love anything mint colored, and looking at this mug just made me happy! TJ Maxx $2.99
On my way to the register, I spotted the red mug with hearts and couldnt resist. TJ Maxx $3.99


I also have heard about being able to find theBalm products at TJ Maxx but most of them had missing items or were broken. I was finally able to find one that was intact. It comes with a bronzer that doubles as an eyeshadow, a blush, a lipgloss with SPF 17, and a mini kabuki brush. $9.99





Here are some swatches:

Betty-Lou Manizer is a bronzer which doubles as an eyeshadow. It is the perfect color for my skin tone. However, as a bronzer, there is fine glitter that is visible in the sun. I prefer matte bronzers. No…

Red Lipstick Collection

I have recently become obsessed with red lipstick. I love how it can add a pop of color to a simple look and make it look like you've made some effort.  Check out my latest YouTube video on my red lipsticks:
As promised here are some swatches:



What is Your Favorite Red Lipstick?

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms in Sultry and Standout

I was a good girl. I wanted to buy all of the Revlon Matte Balms but I held myself back. It took a lot of effort. I picked up the two shades I knew I would get a lot of wear from. These two shades are Sultry and Standout.

Sultry is a gorgeous pinky mauve. 

Standout is a gorgeous deep red.


I really think I might pick up some more. They go on smoothly without tugging. While these are matte, they are comfortable to wear since they are not as drying as most matte lipsticks can be. Until now, I really thought "matte balm" was an oxymoron, but Revlon has done it!
