Easter Chubby Bunny Nail Tutorial

What comes to mind when I think of chubby bunny.....chubby bunny marshmallow challenge. Now I never did the challenge but from what I hear, it can be pretty fun. These chubby bunnies are not edible, but you can admire them. I have been getting lots of complements on these cute chubby bunny nails. 

There pretty much easy to do. The tools you'll need are simply a dotting tool and your colors of choice. If you don't have a dotting tool, then that's fine because a bobby pin and/or tooth pick will work just as well. In this tutorial I actually used a dotting tool and tooth pick. Tooth picks work really well in getting a detail look.

Colorful pastel nail polishes will look really pretty and go well with these cute chubby bunnies. I like how these nail polishes make the chubby bunnies even more cuter. Also adding polka dots on each nail (except ring finger) makes it even more adorable. Seal it off with top coat for a lasting finish!

OPI: Oz The Great and Powerful Collection "Lights Of Emerald City"

I recently purchase a polish from OPI Of course it's from the Oz The Great and Powerful Collection. I've seen lots of blog post reviews and swatches of the collection and I was liking it, so I ordered Lights Of Emerald City on Amazon and fell in love with it! It's kinda depressing to admit that this is my first OPI nail lacquer....ever! 

Lights Of Emerald City
Large white squares with iridescent glitter. The base is very jelly like texture. With the base being so thick it's a bit tricky to get the large white squares painted on your nails. Next time I used this I will just paint it over the whole nail area; instead of the tips. Besides that I really love this shade. I used two coats of this polish. The base coat I use was from Forever 21 Nude polish and finished with Seche Vite.

Be prepared to see more swatches of this baby!

St. Patrick's Day Ombre Nail Art + Video Tutorial

I know it's early but I wanted to say Happy St. Patrick's Day! Yes, I'm actually Irish. Well my dad is Irish and my mother is Puerto Rican. Let's just say I'm mixed with a whole bunch of Okay this is going in a different direction. Let's start over...

In tradition for this Sunday, I wanted to embrace my green side. By wearing it on my nails! So in the video; that will be linked below is an Ombre nail tutorial. I pretty much love anything and everything ombre. From my hair, clothes to my nails. It's very simple and easy to achieve ombre or you call it gradient nails. I really love the dark-to-light effect. On the ring finger I try to make a three leaf clover...Yeah I need more practice there! ^_~

Can't wait to try this again with other colors!

Depotting Loose Eyeshadows and Pigments

I don't know about you but when it comes to loose eye shadows and blushes...I make quite a big mess. So I decided to order an empty pan palette and start depotting! Of course I did my research first on depotting and it looked pretty simple so I gave it a shot! 

The eye shadows I depot were from Bare Minerals. These loose shadows have been collecting dust in my makeup draws. It sadden me just looking at them not getting used. I really love these colors, and in a way these were kinda my very first eye shadows I started playing with. I just couldn't part with them. I'm happy that depotting these were pretty easy and I will finally get motivated to use these shadows again!

I made a quick and easy video on depotting and I hope you all enjoy!

February Favorite's 2013 ♥

February was a pretty short month. I didn't have many favorites for last month but I still wanted to share what I've been using and loving the most in Feb. Some of the products I have been loving were also in my January Favorites 2013. I just can't seem to shake them off! ^^

Skin Care:

Simple Smoothing Eye Balm 
This eye balm has been really helpful for my tired eyes. I like that it de-puffs my eyes and keeps my delicate eye area smooth throughout the day. I like to use this eye balm in the mornings and at night.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream
I've been using this cream for about a year now and love it! My skin has been extremely dry this winter and I find that this ultra repair cream helps. I like to apply this cream on my face area.

Carmex Lip Balm
You guys all know about carmex! It's great stuff for your lips. Just like my face, my lips have also been dry and chapped. I like that this lip balm is very soothing. I like to use my DIY lip scrub (I will do a post on that soon!) and then apply a layer of this baby. Works great!


theBalm Put a Lid on It Eye Primer (travel size)
I received this in my January Birchox 2013. I actually prefer this to my Urban Decay Primer Potion. I find a lot of the primers I have are not so good for my oily eye lids. So this one seems to work really well for me. Keeps my lids oil-free and shadow in place. This travel size tube has been holding up pretty well too.

Bare Minerals Well Rested
This mineral powder works so well along with my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer. I like how it brightens up my dark circles and makes me look wide awake. 

Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara
I like to use this clear mascara to set my brows in place after I fill them in. It seems to do a really good job at keeping my brows tamed. I also like how the wand is small, so it's a prefect size for my brows.

Lorac Pro Palette
Do I even need to explain why this is a favorite?! I love that this palette has both matte and shimmer colors. Great combinations of beautiful neutral colors. I never used to love matte colors until I got the Naked palette. So I was happy when this one came out with more then two matte shades. I also like to use some of the matte brown colors to fill in my brows. 


Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
You guys know how I love this stuff! This stuff saves my life, well my nails. I'm always messing up my nail polish, cause I'm always in a rush. So this stuff drys my nails super fast! Love it!

Birchbox: February 2013

Hey Guys!

Sorry for getting this Birchbox up so late. One of the reasons being that I just wasn't happy with this box's and few of the last ones I received. If you don't mine I will be ranting a bit here, so look away if you don't want to read

One of the reasons why I'm disappointed with Birchbox is, it arrives too late into the month.  I know they have to ship in batches but I just wasn't happy with it arriving so late. It made me feel unmotivated to write up a blog post on them. I just don't think it's right for them to bill me on the 1 of the month and not receive my box until the last week of the month. 

Over all at the beginning I was happy each month waiting to see what was inside each box, but as the months gone by; I've become more and more unsatisfied with the contents in the box. I was just getting tired of receiving sample items. I know it's $10 a month but I was hoping for much better items. There were quite a few items that I loved, like the nail polishes and makeup products. But it was about that time for me to end this long love affair. So I'm on the waiting list for ipsy. ^^

Okay so on to this, well last month's Birchbox!

This month was all about getting Red Carpet Ready, so Birchbox has packed what they think would be "Red Carpet Ready" items...I'm not so sure about that.

Color Club Nail Polish in Mamba
This is by far the most gorgeous red shade nail polish I have! This crimson color is so gorg that I just had to give it a shot. It's a very opaque color. I will be sure to do a blog post on this!

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint
I swatched this on my hand and it seems just a bit light for my skin tone. Plus the sample is so tiny that I'm not sure it would cover my whole face! It does claim it helps with shine control which is a plus, but bummed out about the size.

Kerastase Masque Chroma Riche
I'm not familiar with this brand but it seems to come straight up my alley. This is design for color-treated hair. Claims to nourish and hydrate your dry strands. Two 0.51 fl.oz. I have a lot of hair, so these two packages don't seem to come with much product. Non the less I will be giving this a try.

Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
To be honest I was pretty excited to try this product out. It's 20g. Enriched with papaya micro-crystals and aloe. I tried it the night I received it. It seems to do an okay good. Face felt pretty clean, so I used it again. I skipped a day, cause I didn't want to over exfoliate. Next morning I woke up with so many break outs! Never using this product again! 

As a Valentine's Day treat (cause I deserve it!) Birchbox has added a Ghirardelli Chololate in my box. Okay so now I'm happy to recevie two things, nail polish and this chocolate.

Well that's the last box for me. Hey, maybe one day I'll get back on. But for now I can't wait for ipsy! Time for me to make a chocolate cake! ^^
