My opinion on these colors

Vanity would have to be my favorite...very bold and rich in color..pops amazingly on the eyelids!!

Jerrica would be my second just oozes with sparkles!! a very beautiful yellow!

Romper is very shimmery and applies very nicely as do Vanity and Jerrica.if you like purple you would be crazy not to add Romper to your collection!

And lastly Berrywood....a very pretty color,pink though is not really my color but if you like pink im sure you would be very happy with it...i do however LOVE it as an acrylic for nails!...and i can say the same for all 4 colors..they all make amazing colors for Acrylics!!

I wasnt disappoint with any of these colors...all apply smoothly,the colors really do stand out and you dont have to use much product to get the color pay off you want.They blended wonderfully into one another and stayed on my lid very nicely and didnt crease on me! The colors where still vibrant on my lids after a few hours.Value wise i think it is a great price..10g as opposed to 5g for only $9...very good deal!!  

Here is a makeup look i did wearing all 4 colors

 And here is another photo of all the 4 shadows made into acrylic's

Here is a link to Glamour Doll Eyes website ... go check out this collection as well as all their other shadows...they have a beautiful selection and Im sure you will find something you will fall in love with... 

I was sent these shadows..I didnt pay for them.This is an honest review.I would NEVER lie...i hate being lied to so i would never to it to you!

My new hair !!

Every so often i get a wild urge to do something different to my hair so this time around i decided I wanted to do purple...not to all my hair,i think that would have been to much and i dont think it would have suited me so i did a section the front purple and then the rest of my hair black.

I bleached the section of hair i was going to color purple first . It turned out horrible ..half blond and half orange  but thankfully i wasnt going for the blond look so i reapplied more bleach to the orange parts and that worked..then i applied a semi permanent purple dye i found at CVS ..the brand is splat.I have never heard or tried of this brand before but have heard that the color fades fast so i will find out soon enough!

I wasnt loving the results..i was thinking why did i do this??? is a photo of me after just adding the looks bad with my previously hair color

then I colored the rest of my hair black

Not sure what to make of it....dunno if i like it or not ...I love the purple just not sure if it goes with me.

And because of the new hair and had to give myself a lil make over so i played with some makeup...and since doing my makeup i realized i really love my hair when wearing

I have included photos of the magazine,the page my design is featured on and a close up of my work...if you are subscribed to the magazine you will find my design on page 60.

A sad Monday morning for my nails

So this morning when i was fighting with my Childrens car seats my nails lost the fight..i ended up breaking a couple..there was no shaving them so i made the decision to cut them all off and start over all over again...Im really thinking of doing acrylics.Its upsetting because i put all this time and care into growing my natural nails so when they break it feels like i did all that i did for nothing..oh goes on.

so i thought i would show you all a before and after of my nails



On the upside to all i can do nail art tutorials for short nails :)
