Nail Files.. and a little Face Friday - Think Pink!


Hello, Fireflies!

Today is all about pink.  And it's not even Wednesday, I know!  I couldn't wait.  Look at this gorgeous, bright, summery pink - Seche Snapdragon.  Perfect for showing off the tan I don't have and never get.

On its own, Colors by Llarowe Look At Me I'm Sandra Dee is pretty opaque.  It has such a lovely pink glittery look, I thought it would go well with Snapdragon.

When you order nail art silver beaded chain, you have to cut it yourself.  I wish I could have filmed this, because it was a comedy of errors!

1) You can not affix it to your nail first and then cut it.  Or at least, I can't.

2) If you count how many beads you need to go across your nail, take into account that you're curving the bead strand.

3) These beads are freakin' tiny. Your old eyes will miscount.  Count twice, cut once.

4) Use tweezers.  Slippery Little Suckers.

I never had a Quinceañera, but if I did, I think I would have worn these nails. 


Princess nails!

I've been playing with makeup a little more lately, and thought I'd show you this pink eye (not pinkeye) look with Urban Decay Noise, Mushroom, and Rebel (24/7 sticks) and Mally eyeliner, and Rimmel Scandal Eyes mascara.


I've been inspired by some of the bloggers to use a brighter pop of color that I wouldn't ordinarily use! I like it.


I'm also wearing Cover FX BB Gel in P-Light/Medium over the Cover FX sunscreen primer, Urban Decay Jilted lip gloss, and - I think - Tarte Shimmering Poppy blush, with Hourglass Ambient Light Mood finishing powder.

Are you liking the chain nail look? or the pink makeup look? Would you rather a blog post focus on just one or the other?
