Welcome to my color, fragrance, and makeup blog! This eclectic, whimsical blog is about small things I like. I am an advanced nail tech & makeup artist by qualification, and this blog is my hobby. I am not paid by any company to create makeup looks or product reviews. Nor do I represent any cosmetics company. Thanks for dropping by!
Color is essential. Shimmer is essential. French manicures are elegant. So combine all three already!!!! My fave combo: turqoise tips with lime-green shimmery nails to complement my mermaid eye looks. Also, I now do my nails at home. Nails are so simple to file and paint, and I find I can do them just fine at home, so why waste money at the salon? Tips for filing square-shaped nails: just file straight across, then hold your emery nail file (emery files are best...they're the flexible, bendable kind) at a straight vertical angle to your nails and file the sides straight up. File only in one direction as it helps prevent wear&tear. Tips for French manis: just practise. It's really easy. Don't obssess over any small errors you make. Often, we make errors stand out by attempting to fix them. No one will notice if your nail tip isn't perfectly straight or the color streaked a tiny bit. Also, several of my friends have pointed out they are unable to leave comments on my blogs. NO idea why that's so and I dunno what to do about it. Sorry I've been away so long but I'm wrapping up a "rooms-makeover" project and may post pics of it soon. Interior decoration is FUN!!!!
