Plus, you can always show them off on Cherie 😉 Don’t know what nail art you should get this summer? What better place to look for answers than the stars…Fire Signs: Vibrant, Jovial, EnergeticThere are few things that can knock a fire signs energy down; there's always something ablaze underneath us that truly goes unmatched (I should know, I'm a Sagittarius). Leos, Aries and Sags, this summer, go for a vibrant nail color and energetic nail design to show off how you really feel—even if it's just on video calls.
I recently had to cut my nails super short again :( Here’s a throwback to my fave nail colour moment. Used the Expressie - Taxi Hopping as a base colour since it’s a quick dry polish and the top colour: #OPI - Never a Dulles Moment[products]#is thicker and takes a bit longer to dry. (It’s a little trick I use if I know I’m going to have a to multiple coats of a trickier polish)
I've been doing my own gel manicures for over a year now and this is my favorite set of all time! 🤩 It's inspired by red carnelian - one of the Aries gemstones - and was pretty easy to do! I used three different gel shades: The Gel Bottle - African Sunset The Gel Bottle - Yellow Glass OPI - Funny Bunny The technique is pretty easy, just dot the red and yellow shades around the nail, and then using the milky white swirl them together and around. Once you're happy with itAir Signs: Light, Curious, Knowledgeable Geminis, Libras, and Aquarians are the zodiac's possessors of knowledge and the innovators of the zodiac. They bring a literal meaning to living with their head in the clouds; always looking up for the latest ideas, and answers to their curiosities. This summer, pay homage to the sky above you that represent yours light and airy nature!
I’m obsessed with Sundays vegan nail polish. This was gifted to me but I will say it’s pretty pricey for polish however it IS vegan, nontoxic, cruelty free and totally sustainable and ethical so I stand by it. I’m surprised it’s not on the app already it’s SO good!! It takes two layers for a fully opaque layer but I’m seriously loving it with this new cloud design I’m trying out!! Quarantine as totally gotten me back into my middle school nail art phase! #Sundays - No. 45 nail polishWater Signs: Deep, Mysterious, EmotionalWater signs are much like the ocean; they are embodiments of the mystery, depth, and power that it holds. The ocean is also one of the most liberating and healing places, a testament to what Cancers, Scorpios, and Pisces can achieve through their emotional nature. Reflect the mystery and depth you hold this summer with stunning chrome nails.
I am by no means an acrylic’s expert but I came across these one day when I was on Instagram and I thought they were so beautiful. These are instant acrylic press on nails by a company called Très She. i’ve never use press on nails ever in my life because I’ve always thought they looked very strange and fake. I also have narrow nail beds so I didn’t think that these would fit. I’ve always assumed that press on nails were made for people with wide nail beds because the ones I saw in the store always look that way to me. I bought these press on’s for about $19 I think they can be reused several times and comes with extra nails in case you lose a few. The nail glue that comes with the nails is good. it does also come with a price on adhesive stickers but I’ve never used them. I was able to wear these nails a full week before losing one once I got the hang of applying them properly with the glue. I got so many compliments on these nails and everyone was shocked to find out that they were press on‘s and not done at the salon. I have ordered other styles since then and I’m excited to try them eventually. If you were curious about press on nails I would definitely give these a try!
Nails of the week! Seriously, with Young nails you don’t need to go to the salon for Mani/Pedicure anymore! 😉 Chrome Boss Nail Art kit in Chameleon Chrome • caption polish in “Look don’t touch” • caption polish Top coat • Clear Stamper • Chroma pigmentEarth Signs: Stable, Driven, TrustworthyHonestly, we'd be nothing without earth signs to lean on. Capricorns, Taurus', and Virgos logical and pragmatic attitude pave the way for so many because they are willing to do the work (ahem, Beyonce is a Virgo). This summer use your mani to express your creativity freely and take a break from your rigid routines and goals. Try a fun abstract art look that might usually be unexpected from earth signs!

The Green Juice Cleanse for Age Prevention
I’m a fan of YTTP products, and while I still like this cleanser, it’s not my favourite cleanser or product by them. I love the scent — it’s light and fresh. Smells just like the Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser I love the texture of this cleanser and how great of a job it did with cleansing my skin. With my first use I toned my skin following cleansing just to see if it got all my makeup off and it DID! There was no trace of any whatsoever. I found this very gentle as well. The only downside is that it left my skin feeling a little on the dryer side — this is why I gave it only 4 stars. When I use this I follow it with my normal serums and then apply the Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream. To Use: I dampen my skin and apply a small amount onto my finger tips and lather it up and then apply it onto my face and massage it for approximately 1 minute. What I Love About It: + the fresh scent + how great of a job it does with cleansing my skin + very gentle; I haven’t noticed any breakouts :) + the recycling packaging, although with the smaller size it’s not really ideal to get the desired amount by unscrewing the lid and pouring the product onto your hand, etc. + the cold-pressed antioxidants + it’s vegan, and it’s paraben-free and sulfate-free Benefits According to YTTP: Kale: rich in vitamins C, E, & K Spinach: a skin-smoother that boosts moisture and has natural cooling properties Green Tea: anti-inflammatory and packed with essential fatty acids I think this product would be great for oilier skin types or combination skin. However, maybe I’m the only one to have found this slightly drying and people with dry skin may feel differently haha. The size in my photo is 30 mLs. Larger size is 237 mLs and retails for $47 CAD (has a pump).
The BEST Blush for this Summer!
Starting off with one of my all time favorite blushes. MAC - MAC Powder Blush One thing I really love about MAC’s blushes is that They have a shade to suit just about anyone's preference and skin tone. They come in an amazing color range and have great staying power throughout the day! I am obsessed with MAC blushes. This one here I got is harmony. It is such a beautiful blush. It is a little bit more of a cool tone blush. It is super flattering on all skin tones since its very buildable. Thats another benefits about MAC blushes. It is not intensely pigmented. And for me this is actually a positive thing. Glossier. - Cloud Paint Glossier - I really feel like this blush last on the cheeks ALL day for me without using a primer underneath my foundation. Not only does it have incredible staying power, the colour selection is stunning! The colour looks great on the skin and a little goes a long way which is great. If you are looking for more of a pigmented rosy cheek, this would be you top choice. Another thing amazing about this product is that it works over powder and cream products. For many creamy blushes, it can easily mess up your foundations. This one won’t. L.A. Girl - Just Blushing Powder If you want more of a natural flush, you will love this one. I feel the colors are perfect for fair skin. The pigmentation is really nice, It’s super natural but gives you a nice natural flush. This blush gives me such a nice flush and a healthy look, and blends beautifully. And it is also buildable, you can build it up to the opacity that you want. It has a brighter look comparing with the previous 2 just because it has this peach undertone. As a drugstore blush, it is worth every penny. It’s not chalky or too light has always been hard. I been wearing these blushes in my teen years! I definitely would recommend this product to others.

Liquid Shadows - The Easiest Look Evvvaaaa
I’m a big fan of shimmery liquid shadows because they’re easy to apply and look like you put in way more effort into your eye look than you actually did. Liquid shadows all feature some sort of doe foot applicator that you can apply directly to your lid, finger, or brush. Tap out with your finger for more color or a brush for a more soft, diffused effect. Adding a second layer will also intensity the color. Heck, you could even layer different colors for a custom color! These are some of my favorites in my collection. Most are higher end and mid-range, but you can sometimes get these on sale and I also encourage you to try drugstore formulas like Wet n Wild and ELF. My favorite way to wear these is on their own, but you can also add some powder shadow into your crease and/or outer corner depending on the look you’re going for. Swipe for swatches and looks wearing 3 of these over the last few days! Top to bottom: Kosas - 10-Second Eyeshadow in the shadows “globe” (chestnut) and “supreme” (deep gold)- love the lightweight, buildable but easy to sheer formula, but color range is limited and these are definitely a splurge item at $27 each. “Globe” was sent to me by the brand, “supreme” purchased by me. Colourpop x Zoella supernova shadow in “bellini”. I somehow missed that Colourpop no longer sells these shadows?!?! Sorry about that.. This was part of a creator collection with Zoella. The formula is super easy to work with and reflective (see eye look). These used to retail for $8 or $9. Bummer they’re not available anymore... You may be able to find on EBay, Poshmark, Mercari, etc. COVER FX - Shimmer Veil in the shade “amethyst”. I have 4 of these shimmer veils. This color is my favorite. It’s a soft purple that compliments my brown eyes and offers shimmer without being gaudy. The formula is nice, but not consistent across all colors. I have a very pale pink that cracks and makes my eyelids look 80 years old, but this color and the other 2 (not featured) don’t do that. These are not worth $28 each. Get on sale or look for a minis set. Glossier. - Lidstar in the shades “cub” (rose gold) and “fawn” (taupe purple). Glossier has a deal where you can purchase 2 for $30, which was okay by me. Both colors are stunning and can be sheered out or built up. You don’t need a primer - they last all day on their own. The shade range is limited, so I hope thar Glossier expands in the future. stila - Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in “starlight”. I LOVE this formula. It’s worth the money in my opinion, and especially awesome if you can find at TJ Maxx or Marshall’s for 1/2 price like I did. I have purchased other shades at full price ($24) and used them up! My true faves are “cloud” and “grace” but I haven’t replaced them yet. I much prefer this formula vs the glitter formula because those required glitter glue and dried out super quick. What’s your fave?
