Nail design I did this week. Leopard print!! :D
So easy to do, and there are sooo many different color combinations you can do!
- Clear coat
- Base coat: Revlon top speed nail polish in #810 Hazy (gray)
- LA Colors art decor in 'Black' and 'Intense Pink'
Once you lay down the clear and base coat, use the nail art brush to make pink dots all over the nail. Then use the brush to outline the pink dots with black. The key is to not fully outline the pink dots, but instead outline 3/4 of it. Let dry and top it off with a clear coat to make it look super uh-ma-zing :)

Here's an interesting article I'd love to share with my readers for today!

Are you someone who is someone who is dealing with
mesothelioma treatment, you know that life has thrown you for a
loop. In the midst of dealing with the consequences of asbestos
exposure , you will find that you can find an impressive amount of
strength simply in taking care of yourself. A little bit of polish to
your body and your mental state can help you stay on top of
things, and at the end of the day, you will discover it takes less
than you think.
First, consider your personal appearance. Subconsciously, you
will find that you simply feel better when you love the way that
you look. Looking good means that you take care of yourself,
and of course you feel good because of it! What small tasks can
you do to make yourself feel good? In the first place, consider
your hair and your hands. If you feel too tired or too drained to
head to the salon, give yourself a little in home beauty treatment
for your hair using coconut oil, olive oil or any other type of
natural oil. Smooth out split ends by sleeking them down with oil,

them just the way that you do your hair. Take a small amount of
oil and rub it on your fingernails. This is all you need to do . If

Don’t forget to let color therapy work for you. Think about the
colors that you consider to be your favorites. Chances are good
that there are reasons that they are your favorite. For example,
do you feel particularly calm and serene when you were blues
and greens? Do you feel bright and energized when you wear
red or orange? Take a moment to think about the colors you
love and how you can use them to affect your mood.
Despite your daily challenges and fatigue, choose your favorite
pajamas and put on a lovely robe that makes you feel
wonderfully womanly and elegant. Even if your energy is low you
can feel beautiful resting. It doesn’t have to take a lot of effort to
turn your self esteem around and feel fashionable despite
If you are invested in making sure that your days are full of
energy and hope, consider what you are wearing. A small
amount of polish can turn your day around and just for a single
moment help you forget about your prognosis. Be sure that you
love the way that you look and walk out with confidence. It only
takes a little bit of time to give you the bounce you need.

Here's a quick review on a product I purchased a couple weeks ago :)
The thing I like about this palette, is that the bottom row is a row of matte shadows. I love matte eyeshadows, I prefer them over the shimmery ones. However, for this palette, I did not like the first two matte colors. They just looked weird on my eyes, and I thought they were too similar in color. The brown is great and the black is perfect. Shimmers aren't my favorite, but for me the browns in the 3rd column are totally gorgeous. The white in the top left corner is another matte shadow, and I like that one too. Here are swatches:
When it comes down to it, this palette is average. It's not one that I whip out every morning to use. But if I need a great shimmery warm brown, I'll definitely turn to this palette for that look I'm going for :)

Overall, I really liked these shadows. I would say the only con would be that they're too shimmery for me. I personally love matte shadows. And I guess another thing would be that they're a bit light and soft, so these would be great for daytime looks for maybe work or school, not so much for a nighttime dramatic look.
