Today I painted my nails with OPI's Suzi Says Da! Its a dark brown with a red base. I love brown polishes and wanted to rock it before the spring. Its also a color you can wear on your toes that will go with almost anything. I love that its a really dark brown, but not too dark that it looks black.

So I just used two of my new Crackle Glazes for the first time, and...... I hate them. The purple, Fault Line, looks like polish when first on the nail. The purple just slightly crackles in only a few places. The white, Lightening Bolt, didn't crackle right the first time. I think my coat was too thin.I tried it again on my other hand and it turned out much better. My only complaint it that it looks kind of sheer. They are both without a top coat. I'm going to try again to see if I get any better results.

Enough of my whining.... so here's a pic and a few reviews....
1. I love Love LOVE my new headband. I found it at Sally's in the clearance section for $3.99. It's one of the stretchy, elastic ones that go around the entire head.
2. My nails: Black Onyx and Bring on the Bling (from the Burlesque Collection) on the tips (both by OPI). I love it. The gold tips makes it a little more glam and a little less gothic.
3. My lashes: I give them three snaps up! With only one coat they looked amazing, but of course I piled it on. Today I used Makeup Forever's Smoky Lash. I think I will add this to my list of favorites. You can get this at Sephora. This will be perfect for dramatic looks, and of course a smoky eye.

Yesterday was Valentines day (yay if your taken, boo if your single), and so I wanted to do a pink lip. I'm usually not a fan of colour on MY lips, but I'm getting my feet wet in it. So for my look, I had a side ponytail, light eye makeup with black liner, and pink lipstick from Maybelline I snatched from Target.
I took this pic in the parking lot before I went in the doctors. I looked at the photo and felt hideous : / Just one of those days when I felt ugly and not put together. So I went into the doctors office and checked in. As I was registering, the lady said, "I'm sorry for staring at you, but you're absolutely gorgeous!" MADE.MY.DAY. <3
And got lots of compliments on my nails... that was better than the half a box of chocolates I ate today :)
Glitter and sparkle shoes are in! At first I was a little skeptical, but I bought a pair and in love. I love that I don't leave a trail of glitter as I walk about the house, and the sparkles are vivid. I got mine from Bakers for about $80. I love the platform, extra plus since I'm a shorty! Grab a pair before summer!
So a while ago online, I was reading raves about OPI's My Private Jet, and being the collector I am I ordered it. I was so excited! When I finally got the bottle of polish I was sooo disappointed! I was thinking: so people are so excited about this brownish, grey colour with sparkles??? Ew! Then after some research, I found out that they discontinued the original colour. I also seen pics of it and it was gorgeous. I don't know why since people love it so much they changed the formula, and thought the new would do. Because it def doesn't! So tonight I created my own My Private Jet dupe, and the instructions are as follows:
For a base I used OPIs Ridge Filler
One coat of OPI Black Onyx
Two coats of the newer My Private Jet
Two coats of Northerns Lights (by OutTheDoor, from Sallys)
And a top coat
Its def not the original, but its pretty decent. It has the same sparkle, but the holo effect that everyone loved. As usual in life, there's nothing like the real thing!

But here is one of the products I DO use on my brows. It's a wax that comes in a pencil and it just holds your brows in place. Because that is another pet peeve of mine: when brows looks messy. This isn't heavy, it just holds the hair in place. I picked it up from Ulta, it's only a few bucks.
I bought Break A Leg Warmer and paired it with Suzi Skies in the Pyrenees on one hand & Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous on the other.
Here's swatches of the Urban Ballerina Collection:
Here's pics of my manicure:

For some reason I was just reminded of the horrific memory when I dropped a bottle of RED nail polish, and it broke! There was red polish everywhere! I couldn't believe out of all the times I dropped a bottle of nail polish in the kitchen and on hardwood floor, and it decides to bust on the carpet. But I was able to clean it without a hint of polish left! So here's what I did: First, I sprayed the area with hair spray. I used John Frieda, but I'm sure any brand works. Then I sprayed the area with Windex and go to scrubbing. Keep spraying and scrubbing with Windex until gone. DO NOT USE NAIL POLISH REMOVER!
Just a tip in case this happens to you...!

So this is my first fashion post... well kind of! Since I can blog online I looked through my phone for anything interesting to download, and I found Telly! Telly is what I named my ring, that's a mini elephant. A great new fashion item is jewelry that look like animals. I picked up my ring for Aldo, in Houston Galleria mall. Aldo is great for accesories! They had many other animals, I bought a gator too (named Ally), but he passed (tarnished).
Yayyy so I just uploaded Blogger for my droid...super excited. Love love love the fact I can snap a pic on my phone, then instantly upload and blog! Maybe this will keep on track blogging!
Anyways, I've been thinking of creating a separate blog for personal thoughts...hmmmm.... pondering....
