NAIL CRACK

Hey guys,

I've never been fond of taking care of my real nails or going for manicures for that matter. I have had tips before and i find them to be easier to maintain. Recently since seeing the hype of nail polishes on blogs and YouTube I've decided to give this a go.

I had purchased the Sally Hensen's Miracle Growth the on in the gold bottle and i have to admit that stuff was CRAP! I don't like it, i don't think it hardens or strengthens my nails in any form or way but after all what doesn't work on me might work on others. 

I had learned about this strengthener in high school and i was told by the classmate that used it that it was only sold overseas so i never got to experiment with it until my dearly make-up and beauty addict friend had shown me the same exactly bottle that my classmate used back then.  I've been using this product for about a month on and off and my nails have improved sooo much!  

I'm posting these before and after pictures and i might do a giveaway when i reveal my handy dandy nail crack that i found thanks to my friend... tell me what you guys think! My nails were longer than the after picture but i had to file them down because they were all different lenghth

OOTD- Bold Sunday

Hey y'all!      

I don't really dedicate much time to posting OOTD, maybe because i just don't have a camera except for my iPhone camera which is pretty crappy and I don't think the quality is "oh so great" but today was a special day.

Sorry for the pout, i get picture happy at times. :) 

I chose a very chilled and laid back outfit since it was Sunday.
Tank: Forever21
Sweater: Express
Jeans/Denim: Lucky Brand in semi-dark wash
Shoes: black booties
Accessories: Studs 

As far as the make up goes, i opted for bold lip however, instead of using a red lipstick i used FUCHSIA . I can't emphasize how different a bold lip makes me feel. It makes me feel sexy and confident as if all eyes were on me today, LOL!
silly face once again

Fashion Pet Peeve

Hey guys,
One of my FASHION PET PEEVE is when people mix white gold with yellow gold accessories together. IT'S A FASHION DON'T! Unless the jewelry has a combination of both. It looks extremely tacky when you go ahead and mix both colors of gold for example, wear a gold necklace, gold bracelet, silver watch, silver ring-- it just doesn't look right.

If you're going to wear gold then you should stick to accessories that are yellow gold and if you're going to wear white gold or silver you must stick to accessories that are white gold or silver. It's just a rule!!!


If a piece of accessory as both colors mixed together such as this Cartier watch, then you have the opportunity to mix and match... but in my case what i would still do it stick to one color and that would be the dominating color which is white gold or platinum this.


Are you guys a fashion victim of wearing white gold and yellow gold at the same time?
