NOTD: Heart Decorations

Hi everyone!! Here is a simple nail art idea for you :) I purchased these nail decorations on Ebay for a REALLY good price (Around $3.00 CDN with free shipping!!).  Hope you enjoy!

To apply the heart docorations, I applied a thick coat of clear polish and placed the hearts onto my nails using tweezers.  Since the hearts are slightly thick (not as thick as Fimo slices, but still thicker than stickers), to obtain ideal wear time it's a good idea to hold them down with the tweezers as the clear coat dries (so the heart will bend to the shape of your nail).  This is very time consuming though, since you must apply one heart at a time and hold it down for at least a minute (depending how much time it takes for your clear coat to dry).  Afterwards, apply another coat of clear polish over the hearts :) 

 Polished used (left to right):
-L.A. Colors Color Craze nail polish with hardeners in "Voltage"
-Avon Nailwear Pro+ nail enamel in "Sea Breeze"
-L.A. Colors Color Craze nail polish with hardeners in "Circuits"

Overall, these decorations are very pretty and fun but a pain the neck if you're impatient!! I recommend applying them while you're watching a movie so you won't notice the time.  Thanks for reading!! xo

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Review

Hi loves :) I just wanted to share my thoughts on this particular line of nail polish from Sally Hansen, that is, the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes. I'm so impressed with these polishes! The quality of the polish itself amazing as far as drug store nail polish goes, and I absolutely love the brush.
I applied two coats of the Sally Hansen polish, and one coat of this quick drying topcoat by Essie :)

I love polishes with clever names!! How cute :)

I adore this brush because it's relatively wide and flat.  You can paint your whole nail in two swipes! 
The polish lasted on my nails for about three days before chipping, althought I admit my nails tend to chip quickly.  I was very happy with the easy application process: because of the shape of the brush, there is no streaking!  I loved this particular metallic color but I actually had a very hard time choosing which shade I wanted to take home.  This line offers so many pretty colors!  If you haven't tried these polishes yet, what are you waiting for? ;)
Thanks for reading! xo

January: What I've Been Upto!!

Hi loves!! It's been a while since I've done this type of post, so I thought I was definitely due for one! Here is what has been going on in my life this month :)

Snow, snow snow.  I can't wait for spring!! I love the snow for Christmas but I would be perfectly happy if it all melted on December 26 hahaha :)

Spring vibes nails... seriously cannot wait!

Avon goodies :)

This is how I look when I'm walking around outside.  I need to cover my ears since it's so cold but I cannot sacrifice my jams.  Big headphones it is!! (And yes, they are taped.  They still work perfectly fine but the plastic cracked.)

Bluenotes was having a jeans sale!! Buy one, get one 50% off :) I bought 3 pairs (Should have gotten 4 but didn't think it through hahaha).  The one on the left is mint green but my camera didn't do a good job picking it up.  I will definitely be doing some OOTDs with them :)
