Nail Art For Beginners #2

Hey lovely readers. Today I come to you with an other nail art for beginners. As you may know by now I love nail art that very easy to do. The reason for that is I have a son that just runs around now and its very hard to do my nails. Waiting for them to dry and all that stuff, so I normally do my nails during the night when I get a few minutes to myself. The other day I came up with this. Its very easy to do and you don't need a lot of tools to achieve this nail art. I used a silver stipper but if you don't have one you can always use a toothpick dipped into glitter polish.

First off I cleaned my nails, took off the old nail polish and cut my nails. As I tend to bite them when they get a bit long. Apply a base coat to protect your natural nails from going yellow.

For my base color I chose this Avon in 'Coral Reef' you can choose whatever color you feel like at the time. This is my fist time using the color since I got it and I love it. The color is so beautiful, and is very opaque too.

With a glitter stripper or a different color stripper mark a center point at the tip of your nail. Then imagine where your half moon of your nail would be and connect it down to the center of the dot that you placed to make a triangle shape. Then carefully fill in the triangle and then your done. Do with will all the nails. For your ring finger you can turn the triangle shape up side down to make it look more interesting. 

Apply to topcoat and your done. I hope that you have enjoyed this nail art. I know its so simple and your like 'this is way to simple but if your starting off with strippers this is the best way to practice. Practice makes perfect. Thank you for reading my blog and Ill see you all the next one.

Lots of Love

BarryM nail polish review and swatches!

Hello my lovely ladies. About two weeks ago I got a few BarryM nail polishes and I was really excited to used them. The excitement got overwhelming so I had to take off the nail polish that I had on and apply these two great shades. I love this two shades, they are so amazing.

This is the Glitter one. One coat. I wanted to show you guys how it looks with one, two coasts and so on, just to see how much glitter comes off at the first coat. Its pretty good now I have to say. (sorry its a kinda poor photo)

The middle finger had two coats and I thought it was pretty load of glitter just for the two coats. I would be pretty happy with the two coats.

The glitter polish all have three coats of polish on now and came out really good. To be honest I didn't really see the difference between the second and the third coats. My ring finger has the 'Blueberry nail polish. As you can see that its pretty pigmented and that is one one coat. I didn't put on the second coat and it didn't need it. I am so in love with this Blueberry nail polish.  I will definantly be getting more of BarryM nail polish more, and I can see how everyone who love this brand. The formula is really nice too, as the polish goes on very smooth with no problems. I hope you all enjoy this post.

Lots of Love

BarryM Polishes

Hello to all my lovely readers, yesterday I went to town just to look around and to get Rhys out of the house for a few hours. (it was a lovely lovely day). For some reason I always go into Sally's but never buy anything. I really don't know what's wrong with me. For a while now I am on the hunt for nice glitter nail polish. I have seen so many nail designs that have glitter and to honest I am a little afraid of glitter but still really want one or two in my collection.  While I was in Sally's I picked up 'Fairy Dust' by China Glaze. Its a really fine glitter, and I am in love with it, but again I didn't get it. I think I want to try out something glitter nail polish's that are not that expensive so then if I like it I will go and get Fairy Dust. In the idea of getting a cheaper polish I headed down to Boots. The fist place that I always look in BarryM. I have heard a lot of good things about BarryM. I was looking and looking and then I just left them there why don't ask me but I went up to Superdrug just to see was the price any different. To my surprise, Superdrug's are cheaper by a euro. While it was a whole euro cheaper why not right, so I got some, there was an offer 3 for 2 so I got three.

This is the one that I picked up first. Its called Aqua Glitter. Its a fabulose green/teal glitter. Oh my I am in love. 

This is called Blueberry (something) (306). Its a really light blue. A really spring color. Also I am in love. The  last one that I got was also a glitter one. but when I got home my son decided that I didn't need it and smashed it off the floor. It was clear glitter different sizes too. I really liked that polish. It just wasn't to be. But I'll get it again. I'll have swatches very soon. 

Hope you  enjoyed

Lots of Love Christina xx

Nail Art For Beginners

Good morning to all my lovely readers. As I was sitting down last time watching some Criminal Minds I noticed that my nails were getting chipped and not nice, so its time for a new nail art. I was thinking of what I can do without it being to complicated as I don't like sitting down doing nail art for hours, and then waiting for all the nail polish to dry. I have done this design before but it didn't turn out as good this time. I think its because I took my time this time and I knew what I did wrong the first round. I also watched a good few videos on YouTube just to get a few more ideas on how to achieve this nail art perfect. My favorite YouTuber that does nail art on YouTube in CutePolish. I don't know if you have heard of her if not here is a link to her channel. Anyway lets get on with my nail art for beginners. Fist off this nail art looks hard but it really isn't and you don't have to be too careful with it.

These are the colors that I chose, you can use what ever color you fancy. I like to use the browns I think it just looks absolutely fabulous. (sorry I didn't know the pic would go sideways and I can't get in upright). The little tool that I use is the Avon's decorating tool, I think that's what it's called. The fist time I did this nail art I used a tooth pick and I thought it was kinda awkward. 

First apply a nude polish or a light pink. I am using Avon's Sweet Pea Dreamer. If you don't have that you can also use Essence Nude Glam in Cookies and Cream. This Avon nail polish had s gold tint to it and it really looks lovely in the end result. 

With a dark brown or a medium brown dot a three to four on each nail. If you have longer nails you can apply a few more. Since I have pretty short nails it doesn't work to have to many. Also I wouldn't apply any more them four as you will be out lining the brown spots and if you have to many brown spots it can be very messy when your trying to outline them. That is the mistake that I made when I did this nail art first time round. As you can see you don't have to have a really steady hand with this. As it all comes together in the end.

 With a tooth pick or a dotting tool outline the brown spots making some 'c' like. On the bare places but a few black spots so that it looks more natural and like a real animal would have. Again you don't have to be so perfect doing this as it looks more natural. Make sure all the nail polish is dry and them apply a topcoat, to smooth any imperfections and add a beautiful shine to your manicure.  

I hope that you have enjoyed this nail art design, I know that many people have this done already, but its great nail design to try if you haven't done so already. Thank you for stopping by.

Hi Girls. I thought I'd share what my make up was yesterday. I was going to the town with my son so I like to look nice. For my foundation I use two at the moment. Rimmel Match Perfector in ivory all over my face and under my eye I use Avon Ideal Flawless in light pink.

I use the light pink under my eyes because its lifts my under eye area. I love this foundation. I would also would like to say that Avon has pulled out from Ireland last week with out any notice. Its a sad day when I found out. For my cheeks I use my Saphora palette which has lots of blush's and Bronzer  The blush that I used was a light peachy shade.

I love Stage eye shadow base is my favorite, its better then the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I always use it. On my eyes I wore the light peach shade, it's much better when it wet. In the crease I applied the orange shade just to worm up the look at small bit. In the outer corner of my eye I applied the dark brown shade, just very very lightly as its very very pigmented.

For my brow high light I use "Virgin" from the Naked palette. Also I used "Skin" in the middle of my eyelid to lighted it up a small bit. I really make use of the Naked Palette as I use 'Virgin' as my cheek bone highlight too. It look so nice and gentle on your skin. For my mascara I am still trying out this MUA volume mascara, Its waterproof and I still don't really know what to make of it. I didn't use any other mascara as I wanted to see how it works on its own. 

I didn't use this lipstick in such a long time so it was time to use it. First I out lined my lips with a lip liner from Avon Glimmerstick in Pink Beuques and filled my lips with it too. On top I applied Rimmel Drop of Sherry. Its a lovely pink/wine color and I love it. 

Thanks all my make up hope you all enjoyed. 

Lots of love Christina x

Avon Lady has called!

Hi lovely ladies. Before I tell you what I got from Avon, I would like to start by telling you that I was an Avon Rep for while. I loved it every min of it but the only thing it was very hard to sell. So many people would take the brochure but they wouldn't order. Then other people was like get so many products and they would just look at them and just return half of them. Which is so annoying like. I always looked looking through the brochures and wishing that I had loads of money so that I can get all of the brochure. Ok I won't bore you any more and I'll just tell you what I got. The first thing that I got was the Ideal Flawless foundation in light pink.

Light pink you may say well I have ivory and its about half a shade darker then my skin tone, and light pink is about a half shade lighter then my skin tone, so I like to mix the two and get the right tone for me. This foundation is but its not to watery like my Rimmel Match Perfetor. Its on the thick side but not too thick. Its full coverage and I love it. Its normally 15.50 but as Avon do lots of deals in every brochure. So I wait till the foundation is on offer. Sometimes its two for 15.50 other time is 9 euro, and that's what I got it for. It also has SPF 15 which I love having SPF in my foundation.

I love Avon's nail polishes. They have a great color range and great formulas too. The two that I got this time round is (L-R) coral reef and sweet pea dream. Coral reef is a coral pink shade. Really nice for spring. Sweet Pea Dream is a really nude with a gold shimmer. Its really nice and great for them people that don't like wearing color on their nails. This polish is also great for the office and school. I have a new favorite nude polish.

This is thing is what I have been looking for ages is a art tool. One side is a detailed brush and the other side is a small doting tool. Its great that is two things all in one. I love how small this is and you can pop it in your bad and take it any where with you, if your going on holidays. This is all of my little goodies. 

Love Christian xx
