Holiday Nails

Holiday Nails

This week I tried my metal plate designs again for the holiday design and it worked perfectly, I guess it took a little practive.

I used the Poinsettia and the Blonde Bombshell in the China Glaze

Nails for the week

Hey Beauties, Here is my nails for the week I used a blue and glittery polish by NYC over a white. I tried to do a little snow look for Christmas.


Hey Beauties!!!!! As you can tell I am estatic, I did a little or a lot of shopping and I ended up with a big ol HAUL. I have the 120 Pallet with 30 new brushes, I brought some new mac eyeshadows and my favorite I purchased was the Hard Candy concealer pallet. It comes with the 6 different shades of concealer and I also purchased the MAC concealer just in case the Hard Candy didnt work. LOL I have been having trouble with my acne lately so I was in need of some concealer ASAP. I am excited about trying out my new things so stay tuned for beautiful pics of what I come up with.

This is a little cheat box I found at Walmart for 4.00 I think it was a pretty neutral look for me. I actually pulled up another lady on beautylish and hers looks the same so I did it right. To look her up her name is Paula B. on

My Past Sunday Outfit

I was off to church and I decided to show you guys what I wore. I have the maxi skirt and Blue jean dress from Old Navy, A plain short sleeve black tee from Rainbow and My heels are from I have a fresh weave in so it is a little puffy and I will show my makeup on the next blog.

M.A.S.H. Follow Up

Here is my first try at the MASH stamp and plates, it did not go too well, its actually harder than it looks, so stay tuned and I will try again later. LOL I tried to do some Christmas colors but it just did not work for me.

Hi Beauties, Okay so my car was totaled and my husband brought me to the store and I decided to rack up on the things that I need because I don't want to inconvenience anyone in bringing me back over and over again.
Cotton Balls ( multiple uses)
Sponge Applicators( I wanted to try them for my foundation but I don't like it too much)
White Sponge Applicators (I don't like those either for my foundation)
China Glaze Ingrid( Brownish color)
China Glaze Poinsettia
Mane n Tail shampoo ( for my extensions, I think it helps them get fully clean without adding all that oily)
Brush Cleaner
African Pride Olive Miracle Leave in conditioner( I did a post on this earlier this week)
Petroleum Jelly ( Believe it or not I use this on my feet when I wear socks, it minimizes the pedicures by a LOT)
Fingernail polish remover
Sea Salt ( I am currently following a lady named Andreachoice B on and she made me remember the fact that when you go to the beach you always come home with clear skin so I started doing salt water soaks on my face because of my acne and it has shown wonderful results.)


Hey Beauties, okay so I ordered some cool new stuff from for a total of like $25.00 for my nails.  I bought the 2012 MASH set of 25 Nail art polish stamp image plates for 17.99. The MASH double sided nail plate art stamp and scraper for 3.50. And the MASH 5x2 way marbleizing dotting tool for 3.99. Which came out to like 25.48. Well Beauties, wish me luck with my new toys and there will be pictures come realllllly soon..

Look for Tonight

I think this is really pretty to say I am just starting out with this makeup thing.

Nails for this week

This week I decided to go a little more simple. So I used:
This is a SinfulColors Professional in the color of "Vacation Time #264" for $1.99 at Walgreen's and
Orly "Its Not Rocket Science #40079" for $10.00 at Sally's Beauty Supply

Exotic Looks

This was a little experiment I tried and I think I did pretty good for my first time. I especially love the cheetah look. Check it out and give me some feed back. I used a very cheap glittering starlet eyeshadows made by L.A. Colors for $1.99 in the cheetah look.
I used a J2 Double sided fat eye liner and shadow pencil for the actual cheetah mark and I used them for the whole look in the feather picture. Which was also $1.99

Nails for Last Week LOL


Sorry, these were my nails for last week. I will be posting new photos for the new nails really soon. But I have the China Glaze Base coat
I'm not really sure it does anything. But I purchased a white polish called L.A. Colors from my local Dollar General for $1.00 and I love it. I used it as a base underneath my Blonde Bombshell 3D nail Polish on the three fingers you see. On the Index finger I used the Kiss Designs Polish in which I also got for $1.00. And on the ring finger I used a sponge to dab the pink and purple on them a little gold for a burst look. Maybe I should call it my daytime flower bomb or galaxy bomb. I got this method from a lady on Beautilish but I couldn't find her to reference her. Sorry. Also I apologize for the mess on the sides of the nails I hadn't cleaned them up yet. I wanted to make sure I took a picture for you guys while it was fresh.
Zazzle is a unique website used for personal and business. You can create your own designs such as business cards, t-shirts, greeting cards and canvas pictures. They have so much stuff and trust me their designs are craaaaazy cute. I've used them 4 times in the past for my business cards and now I am looking for a T-Shirt design for my business. I also have been creating a large canvas wall picture to go into my shop. Now this site also has very good deals for their products. During the Thanksgiving holidays I purchased 100 business cards for $10.00 with metallic designs and everything. So check them out.

Healthy Food for Today


It’s a fish which even people who don’t like fish can enjoy. It’s firm enough to grill, can be cooked in many different ways, and doesn’t dry out as easily as many other fish. It comes fresh, frozen, smoked, and canned. Wild salmon can be eaten without fear of excess contaminants or mercury, and it has a very high nutrient profile, including the highly-prized omega-3 fatty acids.
Salmon is a highly nutritious food. Of course, it is high in protein, and the “good fats." But a 4 oz serving of wild salmon provides a full day’s requirement of vitamin D!!! It is one of the few foods that can make that claim. That same piece of fish contains over half of the necessary B12, niacin, and selenium, and is an excellent source of B6 and magnesium. Canned salmon also contains large amounts of calcium (due to the bones of the fish).

Health Benefits of Salmon

People who eat fish seem to be protected from a host of conditions. Some of this is probably due to the omega-3 fats, but there may be other benefits apart from this. The science isn’t clear yet as to all the reasons why eating fish (particularly fatty fish such as salmon) seems to be so darned good for us.

Omega-3 fats seem to primarily work through reducing inflammation in our bodies. Inflammation is turning out to be at the base of many health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, some types of cancers and arthritis. Omega-3’s also help prevent the blood clots which cause many strokes.
An exciting, fairly recent development is the realization that omega-3 fats have potential to help slow cognitive problems such as Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive decline. Also, people who have sufficient levels of omega-3’s (especially as compared to omega-6 fats) seem to have less depression and suicide risk, as well as less aggression -- in one study, giving prison inmates this type of fat (plus vitamins) reduced aggressive behavior by a third in a mere two weeks.

Business People
For all of you business beauties: Square is a free app inside of the android market that allows you to accept credit card payments right on your phone. You download the app onto your phone and immediately you will be able to accept credit card payments by typing the customers credit card info into your app. Within 5 to 7 business days they will send you a little square white device that connects into your headphone port of your phone that you will actually be able to slide the card through. Now each purchase you swipe Square will charge you 2.75% which is a lot cheaper that getting an actual credit card machine. It is not reported when it comes to like taxes and stuff so its 100% safe. You link your banking account onto the app and the funds are deposited that same night. How Awesome is this. I carry mine around in my purse just in case and I haven't had any issues. Ive been using this app for 6 months now. Below is a picture of mine.

Healthy Post for Today


5. Things you should eat every day: WALNUTS
Richer in heart healthy omega-3S than salmon, loaded with more anti-inflammatory poly phenols than red wine, and packing half as much muscle-building protein as chicken, the walnut sounds like a Franekfood, but it grows on trees. Other nuts combine only one or two of these features, not all three. A serving of walnuts about one ounce or seven nuts is good anytime, but especially as a post work out recovery snack.

Substitutes: Almonds, peanuts, pistachios, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts

Fit It In: Sprinkle on top of salads dice and add to pancake batter; spoon peanut butter into curries; grind and mix with olive oil to make a marinade for grilled fish or grilled fish or chicken.

Recipe: mix one cup of walnuts with half a cup of dried blueberries and a fourth cup of dark chocolate chunks.

African Pride Leave-In Conditioner

This is my new product for today. I Love this stuff. I used it on my hair before I blow dried it and put in my extensions and it didn't make my hair feel like it had a film on it. So I tried it on my daughters hair in which she has fine curly hair and it didn't film down her hair either and I was convinced. This is the new African Pride Olive Miracle Leave-In Conditioner.
Stops split ends, breakage, dryness
Repairs dry, damaged hair
Featherlight moisturizing formula
Use before blow drying, press and curling or heat styling
Daily use promotes shiny hair
A quick absorbing non-greasy recipe
I've only used the trial size bottle but I looked up the price and it says $4.99 so I will be going out and buying the big bottle tomorrow.

Ok Beauties Ulta has their latest Holiday catalog out and it has some good deals. Here are two pages I especially like. I buy most of my polish from ULTA but thanks to a few family members and friends I have been paying close attention to their makeup, skin care and hair care products.  Now if you go online to their website you can look through the whole Holiday Catalog at

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque

I LOVE this stuff!!!!!!!!
I use it everyday. Sometimes when Im having a really bad breakout I will sleep with it on the problem areas. And I got this from my local Dollar General Store for $2.75. So its cheap and it really works!!!!!!
 It helps dry up acne pimples, rise away blackheads and shrink enlarged pores. You apply it to your face and neck within minutes you can feel it working. It firms and hardens, drawing out impurities from your pores. After the masque is removed your skin will feel clean, refreshed and smooth. Even for people who dont have many skin problems Mint Julep Masque is a refreshing facial treatment that helps relax tired muscles and ease tension lines on the face and neck.
