China Glaze- China Rouge

This my friends is my go to red. Well it's the only true red I own, and most likely the only true red I would buy again. Love it to bits!

This really is a sexy colour. Very Feminine and mature but not in an old way, but grown-up.

I had Lab-E-Shireen one time in my life and I was IN LOVE! This Ramadan insha'Allah I will make it. I made a test batch today and it seemed to go down well. My Father-in-Law who never eats sweets had two bowls.

The recipe had called for nuts but I left those out because of my son's nut allergies.

I just hope they are in-stock the next time I hit Forever21.

I wanted to make the title Back to Black because I hardly wear black and usually wear blue, but then I remembered Amy Whinehouse and thought it was a little inappropriate :(

T-shirt: Forever21
Top: Marshalls
Trousers: Dots (SALE at a ridiculous price)

Ramadan is a few days away. I hope that this month is filled with blessings insha'Allah! May Allah (swt) make your fast easy. I also hope that everyone who is reading this tries to complete the Quran during this month. Insha'allah that is my goal this Ramadan. I wish everyone a happy eid that is to follow.

The "tribal" look is the hot thing this season. It's all over the place, from clothing to accessories, so why not have it on your nails too? This look was inspired by cutepolish...and Rihanna's music video, Man Down. Rum pa pa pum!

Just a thought: is "tribal" considered tribal to "tribal people" or do they think of it as so last year, or {insert circa here}?

Colours used: SH- White On, CG-Lemon Fizz, SH- Going Green, CG-China Rogue, CG- Liquid Leather, LA Colors Art Deco- Black , Seche Vite-Top Coat

A Walk Down Memory Lane

I was doing some cleaning and came across my sons old baby shoes.

My sister had gone on a work trip to the Yukon Territories, and she picked up these baby moccasins for him. I think he wore them 2-3 times during the winter.

These were the very first pair of shoes I bought him. Size 0-6 months. Awww.

Another nail's okay though I know they are loved!

What I have here is China Glaze's Dorothy Who? When I think Dorothy I think Wizard of Oz and those Ruby Red Slippers. This sparkly concoction of awesome blueness really makes you forget those slippers and Dorothy.

Grey Suede...

I absolutely love this colour by Revlon. A nude with Grey undertones AND, a little bit of shimmer. Really pretty.

The only problem I have with this polish, and all Revlon polishes for that matter, is they bubble. It does not matter how slow or fast I apply the polish, those pesky little bubbles show up. All's well when I put Seche Vite topcoat on.

...and then there were none.

With all the spills, etc to clean up with a 3 yr old running around. They were getting too hard to maintain. (This coming from a person who has never really had long nails up until now, so yeah they were hard to maintain). With my scrubing and general accident prone ways a nail or two would break and long and short look was not cutting it for me. So, I've decided to cut my nails off.

I like short nails better. So much easier to handle. I'm going to try to grow them out again, but they'll remain this length for a while. I'll still do designs, but they wont look as lovely.

Here's some firework shots I took on the July 4th Weekend.

I didn't wear RED WHITE AND BLUE, so I decided to put some eyeshadow and on hand to be part of the

Sephora Haul

This is not really that grand of a haul, but a haul none the less. I went to Sephora to get my Beauty Insider birthday gift, and came home with more.

This is all I got. I picked up 2 Travel sized Benefit minis. I really wanted to try the Posie tint, and high beam but didn't want to spend $28 on both. I am a lover of the Bene tint. It was my go to face perker. Just dabble some on to my cheeks and lips and go. Easy! It also smells really good. I wanted to try their skincare line as well, so I got a mini for that as well.

HAPPY B-DAY. Philosophy's Shower Gel/Shampoo/Bubble Bath in Vanilla Cupcake.

Benefit's Feelin' Cheeky Mini- Posie Tint, High Beam, and Bene Tint

Whoa, Crazy!!!

I was looking at Anna Sui's Fall 2011 RTW collection and I spotted this...

A few posts back I did a marbled nail using the same colours... *points to index finger*

What a coincidence. Great minds think alike I guess ;)
