Free BB Cream Samples

Hi Ladies,

I hope you guys are doing well and enjoyed the few days of sunshine that we got. Winter is coming so for those of you who have dry skin like me its important to hydrate our skin. For those of you who have oily skin, the cold winter weather will also affect your skin so keep it hydrated as well. For me BB cream is what I use to keep my skin hydrated and at the same time hide the flaws of my skin. It is the perfect product with a nice balance of moisture and coverage. As for people with blemish prone or oily skin there is also a BB cream that caters to your needs as well.

For those of you who do not know what BB (Blemish Balm) cream is, it is a lightweight lotion-like cream that covers up blemishes and smooths out the complexion of your skin. You apply it just like you would your moisturizer so it is ideal for getting ready in the mornings cause I know we all have busy schedules and hit the snooze button more times than we should. It also contains ingredients that provide SPF, anti-wrinkling and whitening so it is a 3 in 1 cream that gives your skin protection as while helping your skin retain its youthfulness.

I wanted to share this product with you guys because it is something I definitely could not live without. We have tons of samples to give out so that you guys can all try it for yourself. So stop by and get a free sample today. =)

For Sensitive Skin

For Oily Skin

Please feel free to stop by or email me if you have any questions regarding this product.

Nail Design of the Week

Love Lace? Everyone seems to this fall. Lace is everywhere! On clothes, shoes, pants, why not nails? hahaha. I hope you guys like this design. It was pretty simple to do. The only parts that were a bit tricky were the black detailing. The french tip plate takes a few tries before getting it to align correctly but after a bit of practice it should be easy to do.

Rhinestone application:

- Take out rhinestones and toothpick and place them on a table
- Put a tiny drop of the top coat on desired area of nail with toothpick
- Dip the tip of toothpick into a top coat and use it to pick up rhinestones
- Use toothpick to maneuver the rhinestone around on nail

Products used:

Base Coat: Orly Bonder
China Glaze Simply Stunning
Konad Plate: M71, M19
Konad Polish: Black
Opi Black Onyx
Clear Rhinestones
Top Coat: Seche Vite

Cool Website *-*

Hi ladies!

I recently found out about this new website through a makeup guru (Holly) that I watch on youtube (I know you guys do it too!). At first I was skeptical, so I waited to see if it turns out to be too good to be true. This website is basically like a blog but a way more interactive one that people post about anything from technology to health & beauty to sports & fitness. BUT while doing all these things that you would normally do on a blog, you can win really cool prizes. Prizes include a Macbook Pro, a LV purse, iTunes gift cards and even a Konad Pro Nail Salon Kit. You win points for posting, commenting and basically everything on the site is designed for you to earn points.

The reason why I decided to give it a shot was because on this blog, I try to keep everything based around the business and more professional. On this new website, I get to post about a variety of other subjects that interest me and just more well..random. Things I find funny or my skin care routine..stuff like that (if anyone is interested..haha).

I also wanted to share this with all of you because the prizes are really cool. After watching the video (will be linked below) I was kinda sold..haha. (sorry you gotta copy & paste it)

If you guys don't know about this site already, I say try it out and see cause the rewards are pretty awesome. If you are as addicted to blogging as me, I think you'll enjoy it. =) You can click on the button below and it will direct you to the page. If you do decide to join don't forget to add me as a friend!

Happy blogging everyone!

Nail Design of the Week

This week my aunt Fannie's nails will be featured as well as my own. I wanted to try the Sponge Set and her nails were perfect because they're nice and long. Short nails will work too but with longer nails its easier to show off the different layers. Also if you use more shades of purple the gradient effect would be more apparent but I didn't have that many purples so I just used 3. I hope you guys like it!

Products Used:

Base Coat: Sally Hansen Strong as Diamonds
Konad Sponge Set
OPI Sheer Your Toys
L.A. Girl Bedazzle
China Glaze Midnight Ride
Konad Plate: M3
Konad Polish: Dark Purple, Silver
L.A. Colors Art Deco in Silver
Top Coat: Seche Vite

As for myself, I wanted to do a design inspired by 2010 fall trends. So I did camouflage print. =)

Products Used:

Base Coat: Orly Bonder
Zoya Irene
Konad Plate: M61
Konad Princess Nail Polish: Chocolate, Jungle Green
Konad Polish: Black
Top Coat: Seche Vite
