I ❤️ this nail lacquer!

My summer beauty crush is a nail polish. I love getting a mani & pedi and enjoy touching my nails 💅 up between my manicure appointments so I can look my best.

While shopping 🛍 to pick up some milk and and a few other things I discovered of all places in The Dollar General an end cap display of nail lacquer. A few colors caught my eye.

I can’t wait to buy MORE!

They have 18 show stopping colors!

Twisted 🌷 Tulip nail lacquer!

Maybe I needed a frost, no I needed a matte. So I chose Twisted 🌷 Tulip! Perhaps like my personality. It is Maybelline FAST gel nail lacquer. Yes, Maybelline every teen on a budgets dream.

It went on my nails smooth and looked flawless instantly. Best part besides this beautiful hue. It is so FAST drying! I am in love! And I almost forgot I’ve had two coats on for a week. Not a dent or chip. Color is shiny and still looks amazing.

And by the way, for years I have been able to only use OPI nail polish because I am allergic to other nail lacquers.

No your nail bed doesn’t break out nor do you necessarily get a rash. Your eye 👁 lids and under eyes can get itchy and irritated. And can even get raw red from scratching or rubbing.

Did you even know you can be allergic from the ingredients in some brand nail polish?

It’s not over. There’s still more summer left! Maybe it’s time you discover and try a few and play away!

You’ll most likely fall in love with it too!

Like the brands tube goes… Maybe It’s Maybelline!

Kissing Spring a BIG Hello!

3.14 MacysI know it’s not quite spring everywhere by the weather I heard on TV today but you can still celebrate it in your heart and on your face and body with happy glee!

Here are my top tips to make you look and FEEL Gorgeous this Spring.

1. A cheap and chic NEW lipstick or lip gloss can update your look and face in seconds.
Find a color that brightens your complexion. Choose a light to medium bold color.Say “Bye Bye” to the dark shades.Lighten Up!Brighten Up!

2. Blush on! Choose a blush that accents your cheeks like a pretty coral or pink.Select one with shimmer for a soft luminous look.This gives you a dewy youthful look.

3. Eyeshadow doesn’t have to be complicated.Select one shade and go with it. You don’t have to use two or five shades to make your eyes stand out and look gorgeous.A soft champagne,a soft pink,a gold beige or touch of silver to highlight your eyes. You can mix and match matte and shimmer together for a natural glow look.

4. As a professional I highly recommend you own a rice powder to set your makeup,make your makeup last longer and to tone down shine.It is an Ancient Chinese secret.

5. Nail polish is taking over the world. It has a new look,shades,feel and texture.Pick up a few shades and paint your fingeres and toes creamsicle,sunny yellow or an aqua blue hue.Or better yet have a PRO give you a fresh manicure and pedicure and try a new hue.

6. Accessorize! Your face can look more alive with some new accessories.A little bling goes a long way I LOVE to make my face,neck and eyes glow with a dash of color and sparkle from an earring,necklace and more.

7. Buy a a new scent and spice up make your life with something floral,sweet,sexy or sultry.

8. Go window shopping. It not only will get you out of the house or workplace it will give you ideas to look better and fashionable. This was a happy spring window display I took at Macy’s last week in New York City.

9. You are what you eat…add more spring fruits ripe,ready and in season. Add a healthy rainbow of foods to your diet.

10. Pretty skin and a healthy body needs water.Whip up some water by infusing fresh fruits or veggies in a tall pitcher.Yummy and low cal way to get in your water intake and the light flavor of the fruit tastes awesome.

I hope you have a HAPPY SPRING! Paint the town with the new shade for this Spring…Radiant orchid.
