Blue and Silver Stars

1

This set of star studs nails was inspired by this pair of YSL sneakers! How fun is this pattern?


The base colors were a silver and a cream blue.


I topped the blue with a metallic sheer chrome blue so get a more accurate color to the shoes.


On the silver nails, I placed some star shaped nail decals on which match the rest of the blue color perfectly!



After top coating and we are done!



Polishes Used:
Blue - Julep
Silver - Mineral Fusion
Star Glitter

I really like this month's bag with the navy blue foam-feel fabric with gold stars and makeup print! I have been really liking the bag design from Ipsy lately! Good job Ipsy!

What I got this month:




Doucce - Freematic Blush in #49 Zen Orange - 3.4 g
I quite like the color and texture of this blush. It is quite smooth to swatch. I like the neutral peach color as well since it is quite flattening on my skin tone. The back of this blush has some magnets so you can pop it into any empty magnetic palette! Like!



theBalm Cosmetics - Mad Lash® Mascara in Black - 2.5 ml
I like theBalm already but I haven't tried this mascara. I always love getting deluxe sized mascara samples to try out since they last long even for the couple months of expiry date anyway! Can't wait to try this!



ModelCo - Contour Stick - 2.1 g
At first, I thought this was a lip crayon. Then I swatched it and thought "The color is not anything close to the tube at all!". Then I realized it's a contour stick! Haha. It goes on easily but when I blend it out with my finger it just disappeared. So it is better to apply a few layers and gently pat it out.



Tarte - Maracuja Oil - 7 ml
I love this oil and continuously re-purchase this! I used it at night after all my skincare routine to seal all my serum/moisturizer layers. I love Tarte and this is one of the products that I always have back up from them! 

NAOBAY Natural & Organic - Renewal Antiox Eye Contour Cream - 5 ml
I have never heard of this brand but I love anything natural and organic especially for skincare! I will sure put this to good use. I love receiving sample sized eye cream since they can last quite a while!

Lilac and Cream Leopard

0

Let's do another leopard print with a softer color combo! I have always thought that animal print manicure can be very easy to do and yet quite impressive because you don't have to be perfectly neat at all.


For the base colors, I used a cream white and a lovely lilac, both by Julep.



I then simply and randomly painted some dots using the opposite colors. I just used the brush directly from the polish bottle!



Using a silver polish, I outlined the print with a tiny nailart brush. This does not have to be neat at all! I also added some silver dots in between the print to fill up some empty spaces.




Polishes Used:
Lilac - Julep's Alexa
Cream White - Julep's Lilian
Silver - Mineral Fusion
Nailart Brush

St. Patrick's Day Clover Nails

0

Here's a quick and easy St. Patrick's Day nail with, of course, green and gold!


The base colors are by Layla and Butter London. The green polish is actually a thermal polish that changes color from dark green to light green with different temperatures! You can see here the tips of the nails are darker (colder) than the rest of the nail.



Then I used a tiny nailart brush to draw on the clover leaves on the middle finger.


I also topped the other green nails with some gold glitter!


Polishes Used:
Green - Layla
Gold - Butter London
Gold Glitter - Julep
