NYX LIQUID SUEDE LIPSTICK SWATCHES ON DARK SKIN

 

Hi Beauties!

The weather is changing, so you know what that means….new lipstick colors! NYX Cosmetics launched their Liquid Suede Lipstick collection about a year ago. I picked up two shades (Brooklyn Thorn & Jet-Set) as soon as they came out and I fell in love with the formula.

During a recent trip to Ulta, I saw that NYX was having a 30% off sale, so I racked up!

As a woman of color, I always love to get an idea of what lipstick shades may look like on my skin tone before I purchase, so I decided to film a lip swatch video for you guys!

DIY FRAMED LETTERS | PERFECT WALL DECOR FOR LITTLE GIRLS NURSERY

Hi Beauties!

Today I want to share my latest DIY project with you. In a previous post , I showed you guys these DIY framed letters that I made for my daughter’s room.

Now that my goddaughter, Skylar, is getting her own room soon, I just HAD to make sure that she had some customized wall art! I mean, a Princess room really isn’t a Princess room unless her name is displayed proudly above her castle, right?

Luckily, I had enough time to film the entire project this time so I could show you guys how I did them from start to finish. Most of the items are from Hobby Lobby, Dollar Tree, and Walmart! Click the video below to watch the tutorial!

 

 

Not only is this a very easy and inexpensive to add decor to a child’s room, you could also use these letters as wall art in a family room, classroom, or office. Hmmm, I’m getting more ideas as I type! Let me know what you guys think of this project!

 

DIY FAKE COFFIN NAILS AT HOME

Hello Beauties!

Today I want to share my nail secret with you guys…I wear press on’s! Only I think I do a pretty good job at not making them look like press on nails. After getting acrylic nails religiously for years, last Fall I finally decided to take them off for a training class. To my surprise, after removing the tips, my real nails and nail bed were severely damaged. It took me 4-6 months before my nails grew past my skin and even then they were VERY brittle.

After getting acrylic nails religiously for years, last December I finally decided to take them off for a training class. To my surprise, after removing the tips, my real nails and nail bed were severely damaged. It took me 4-6 months before my nails grew past my skin and even then they were VERY brittle.

Moving forward I attempted to opt for a better solution- gel nails. Only everytime I went to the nail salon, the technician tried to convince me that the powder + liquid duo that he was pulling out (before I even told him what I wanted) was a “gel-powder“. 🤔🤔🤔 How could it be a gel if it was a powder, you ask? Yeah me too, that’s when I got myself up out of that chair and swore off nail salons.

My only problem is that I really actually enjoy tips and the cool sound they make when tapping against my keyboard.😔 It sort of makes me feel sophisticated, you know.

I decided that I was going to try and do them myself. I do remember wearing press-on nails back in school, you know the kind that popped off every other period? Yeah, those. I knew I was taking a chance with this press-on situation but I decided to try it out anyway.

To my surprise, my nails came out pretty darn professional looking, and the best part is, they last for about a week! Very cheap, very low maintenance, and very EASY to do! Check out the tutorial below!
