Look of the Day, Nails of the Day

"It's beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart."

Hello my lovely readers,
Today I hastily worked on a new video tutorial for my Neutral Everyday Series on my youtube channel before heading off to work. It was a super easy tutorial and it's a look I do quite often.
When it comes to everyday make up, something that's quick, simple but fabulous is always the best option.

--> the garden at my job. Pedals on the steps. Pretty, no? :)

The featured product for this look is my NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette (for brown eyes):
All the eye shadows that were used are in this palette.
I've decided to start using some of my neglected make up because I figure it's such a waste if I don't use it. Since this was a fairly simple look to achieve, I didn't face any challenges.

My thoughts on the NYX 10 Eyeshadow Palette:
So I actually bought this palette ages ago (on ebay). I used it once or twice and then just ignored it all together. It's not because I HATED it but because it was stashed away in my make up storage area. I recently re-organized all my palettes and discovered this palette. Does this mean I LOVE this palette? No it does not.

  • Chunky glitters
  • Chalky
  • The color pay-off is so-so

However it's a good "on the go" palette to have. Something to leave in your purse or to take with you when you travel. The price is a bit "meh" for the quality it provides. ELF palettes are cheaper and have better quality shadows. That's just my opinion.

Moving on~

Playing around with nail design....
I've decided to start growing out my nails. They're a pain to take care of but I can achieve several fun nail polish designs with longer nails. Random cell phone beauty shot of the day:
"Semi-French" Nails

On my nails
(French) Revlon Top Speed Nail Polish- Jaded
I'm loving this new Revlon nail polish line. They're $4.99 and the color pay-off is great. So far I've purchased two. On top of the color pay-off being awesome, they dry super fast! That's a great plus. However there is always a catch to something that seems superbly awesome: lasting power = BLAH. It chips really easily so you definitely need a good top coat to secure it more. But hey, it's an excuse to glam up your nails more than once a week.

Stay tuned. I have more make up tutorials and even a hair tutorial coming up.

With love,
