Dusty Rose!!!

I've been on the hunt for the perfect dusty rosey nude colour. I think I've found it. Wet n Wild's Undercover was the right shade I was looking for. They only draw back is the brush is so short and fat, which makes application a little bit tedious. But I cant really expect greatness for $1...I am very content with the colour, and that's all that really matters to me in the end.

I think this will be one of my go to nudes from now on. LOVE!

Oh Canada

Canada Day (July 1st) is around the corner, what better way to show my patriotic side and celebrate a little early by doing a nail design.

The maple leaf was easier to draw than it look. Colours used: OPI-Red Shatter, China Glaze- China Rogue, Sally Hansen-White On. What I love about OPI's Red shatter is the intensity of the colour changes depending on the base colour used. Pretty rad!

What do you think?

I was on the Forever21 Site today and this was the first pant that came up. I am kinda digging them..does that mean I'm crazy.

There seems to be a surge in palazzo type pants going on. I would totally get the cheetah print if they weren't sheer.

Hodgepodge Nails

I was bored and here's what I came up with. I wanted to keep the same colour scheme going on.

China Glaze- For Audrey, OPI- Black Shatter, Sally Hansen-White On, Sally Hansen-The Real Teal, China Glaze- Liquid Leather, and Finger Paints-Private Collection.



Plant Shopping

On the weekend we went to the Dallas Farmers Market. Let my just start off, if you are ever in the Dallas area, this is a place to go. With all the fruit sampling, cookie sampling, cake have a free lunch right there. If you've ever watched that TV show Prison Break, this market was actually featured on one of the episodes. Off topic I know.

My husband wanted to get some fruit and I wanted a new plant because when I went home to visit my family he didn't water it and I can back to a dead plant:(

Here are some highlights from our afternoon.

A Masonic Temple...Scary. For some reason I think of goat sacrifices when I see these places.

Downtown Dallas

Yes I found it.. a Money Plant, aka Ivy.

Sale Polish!!!

CVS and Walgreen's were having a sale on Essie A French Affair Collection. Walgreen's didn't quite have them for 50% off but very close to. The colour I really wanted from this collection was Topless and Barefoot, but neither stores carried them. I believe both stores are still having this sale.

Here's what I got.The 2 with the stickers are from CVS the other 2 are from Walgreens. At CVS they might ring up regular price but they are actually on sale.

I was gone for maybe 15 mins to the store. I came home to find my poor child's hair BUTCHERED! Oh dear, I had to shave it all of. It was unfix-able.

As of late I have an obsession with the colour YELLOW! Yellow used to be my most hated colour, so I cant tell you the reason why it looks so beautiful to me lately. Perhaps because summer has arrived? who knows!

Collective Haul (June 4th 2011)

This weekend I kind of went on a mini beauty/makeup shopping spree.

Here's what I picked up.
  • Garnier Moisture Rescue Fresh Cleansing Foam
  • Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream
  • St. Ives Skin Apricot Scrub Gentle.
  • Equate Nail Polish remover
  • NYX Pumpkin Pie Lipstick
  • Maybelline Fit Foundation.
  • Cina Nail Art Dial -a-Gem
  • Cina Nail Art Midsummer Dream
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Going Green
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in The Real Teal
  • Finger Paints in Private Collection
  • Finger Paints in Rose Patina
  • Nina Ultra Pro in Punki Purple
I absolutely love getting "reduced" nail polishes at sally's. Sometimes you can find the expensive ones like China Glaze or Orly for dirt cheap!

The Midsummer Dream was FREE with the Dial-a-Gem purchase at Sally's Beauty

St. Ives was 50% off at Ulta. Happy Buy!

I am trying out this foundation powder for the first time It's a shade darker, and the one in my tone wasn't there but I got it because I figured I'll gonna get a tan anyway so I might at well. The Lipstick is a little too nude for me alone, but paired with MAC's lipgelee in Jellicious, it's absolutely perfect. Too bad it's discontinued :(

That's it. Hope you enjoyed it.
