Don't you dare Touch my Tutu!

/hihi

Hello Ladies!!!

Soooo excuse the silly post tittle! I couldn't help myself. OPI has the funniest names for NP. So while cleaning up on my day off I found a Convenience Store newspaper and I immediately decided to do a newspaper mani - Food edition!

What's on the menu?
  • Lays chips
  • Pepsi
  • Ritz crackers
  • Welch's grape juice and 
  • Cheeto's 
The only thing I was not happy about was that the image transfer didn't work very well and for some reason the newspaper kept getting stock to the nail. Perhaps the material in that specific newspaper? i will never know! lol

What I used:
OPI - Don't touch my tutu! - 3 coats
Newspaper
Rum (you could use rubbing alcohol instead)
Out the Door - Top Coat




 Now look at this beauty!!!! - I'm a sucker for this type of nail polish! I remember absolutely loving this kinds of shades specially growing up...they make yours hands look so clean and neat (even if you just removed a really dark polish and makes your hands look gross)
OPI - Don't Touch my Tutu! 


Hope you guys like this mani as much as I did.
Hugs,
Lydia

Born Pretty Brushes - Part II

/hihi

Hello there Lovelies,

Today I want to show you a little bit more about the 15pcs Brush set that I got from Born Pretty Store and that I show you in this ----->post.  I also made a quick video, to show you a couple of things that you can do with them.


 Striping Brushes: Mainly used for lines of different lenghts. I used mine to create the lines on the checkered board on the video.
 Angle Brushes: these are great for shading and even can be used for one stroke flowers or designs.
 Fan Brushes: are great for creating awesome backgrounds or layering effects - like i show on the video.
 Flat Stroke Brushes: Absolutely great for one stroke flowers or shading - very similar to angle brushes but bigger - for bigger designs.
Dotting Tool: great for making dots to give your mani a nice look.
Drawing brushes: My favorite of the set!! you can almost draw anything with it.


 These are some of the strokes you can do with some of the brushes. They are pretty awesome aint them?

 L to R:
-I used a fan brush for my index finger with white and purple acrylic paints.
-I used an flat brush and an flat/angle brush to create the effect on my middle finger.
-I used a striper brush to create the long lines on my ring finger and then a drawing brush to fill in the squares.
-I used a drawing brush for my pinky finger to create the whole design.



I also used these brush set to put together the two sample manis below. You can do all kinds of designs.

You can find these-----> here 
Price: $5.96 
Don't forget that Born Pretty Store has 10% off on your next order if you used the code CJL91. 

Hugs,
Lydia

Born Pretty Store: Valentine's Day - Part I

/hihi

H-E-L-L-O there!!!

Happy Valentines day lovelies!!! <3<3 hugs <3<3

So... I'm so excited to show you what I got from the awesome team at Born Pretty Store. I have been testing these awesome brushes for a few weeks and I have to say that I love them! even more so than my old ones that are quite broken into LOL - these set is fantastic and has a great price.


15pc Nail Art Design Brush Set

The set come with:
-3 drawing brushes
-7 painting brushes
-2 liners
-1 dotting tool
-2 fan brushes for nail art effect

Would I recommend it: Absolutely!

The brushes come in a pouch to protect them and keep them safe and each brush comes with a protective cover. I think that is definitely a plus. There are different types of brushes to choose from, I love practicing on a piece of paper with them. :)

Wanna see what I did with them?


I'll be showing you the mani I picked for Valentine's Day - later on today.
