Try It On Tuesday: Finger Paints Inkblot Blue and Brushstroke Blush

Hello Guys! This is my first time participating in try it on Tuesday, and I have not one but TWO amazing polishes to show you! If you don't know what Try It On Tuesday is, it is when bloggers and fans go through their stash and find brand new polishes and give them a try.

The first color is Inkblot blue which can be seen on my ring finger. It is a beautiful cobalt blue cream and gives full coverage in only 2 coats. The second polish is also by finger paints and is called Brushstroke Blush. This polish is also a cream but appears very sheer on the first coat, however it only needs 2-3 coats to become completely opaque and provide full coverage. These applied very easily and I plan on using these colors for some nail art in the near future.

*Sorry for the photo quality, still waiting on the new one!*

Hope you enjoyed and participate next week!

Peace & Love,

The Beginning of A New, Better Blog

Hey guys!
I just want to start off by saying thank you so much for all the love and support you have shown me throughout my journey, I would be nothing without you guys. For all of my older blog followers, you may have realized the HUGE make over I gave my page & there are 2 reasons why I felt the need to switch things up. The first reason being is that I felt my old layout was missing some key elements that make a good blog. The second reason being is that I also felt that I wasn't doing everything that I sought out to do when I first started this page.

When I envisioned my blog I wanted there to be lots of giveaways, hauls, tutorials, tips & tricks, NOTD's and much more, and so far I have completed very little if any of what I wanted. In the 3 months I have had this page, I have only made 11 posts which I feel horrible about because I know I can and should do much better. As soon as I get my new camera, I promise a new, better blog with good quality photos, good quality products, and at least 15 posts a month. I love you guys and you are my inspiration.

Peace & love <3

Hibiscus Nail Art

Hey guys!!! These nails are what I thought up next after the lemon-lime nails #FAIL. These were also inspired by a video on youtube (cannot remember for the life of me what it was called) and I think they're gorgeous! It has been a while since I've done nail art and it's good to know that I still got a little good in me ahaha. The main color is China Glaze's For Audrey, the purple is Sally Hansen's Lacey Lilac, and the hibiscus' were hand drawn with acrylic paint. Not too shabby for a 2am mani if I do say so myself.

Thanks for reading!!!

Lemon-Lime #FAIL

The idea for these nails came about when I had to think up a design for a summer nail art contest and I thought to myself "What's summer without lemonade?!". That's when I hit up good ole youtube for some inspiration. HERE is the link to the tutorial I followed.

I call this manicure a fail because I didn't have the proper shade of green and I lost my striper and had to use a dotting tool instead. Here was what the end result looked like. 

I will be trying these again in the future when I have everything I need lol. Thanks for reading!
