Grays, nudes and purples

Fall is almost here, and that means saying goodbye to hot pink and neon nails. Although in my opinion, just as there are no rules in makeup, there also aren’t any in nail art ;) It’s  no secret that I’ve always been obsessed with nailpolish and nailart. Back in high school, I would do my friends’ nails all the time (I myself always rocked french acrylic tips, all done at home) and I rarely get professional manicures, because I myself…

Recent skincare favorites

In the last few couple of weeks I came across few skincare products that really impressed me. Number one has got to be Mario Badescu’s Buffering Lotion.

I use a few drops on the area that I want to treat…

If I end up not using or liking something, I…

I think I’d compare the coverage to my Estee Lauder’s Double Wear, but minus the super heavy feeling. Main factor that I love about it, is the fact that it actually will last my entire workday, without me having to blot or powder, at the same time it…

Pastel Nails

My latest nail craze are pastel nails. Pinks, blues, yellows, you name it! This time I was actually inspired by the pastel-colored stickies that I bought. I didn’t have a yellow nail polish in my collection so I decided to try Sally Hansen’s Extreme Wear, Hard as Nails polish: Yellow Mellow (360) and Breezy Blue (481). I also actually used these two colors to create a green shade, since I couldn’t find one that resembled the shade of the “sticky”…
