Hello, guys! It is me again! There is a branch of milky nails called "milk bath nails". What does it mean? Well, it means acrylic nails where colorful dried flowers are embedded into a milky color acrylic. It is one of the most decadent, relaxing beauty treatments one could undergo. This nail trend has swept across Instagram as full-set manicures and accent nails. The best part about it is that it looks beautiful on every nail length. Like P1 both of them are classic milk bath nails with flower matterns. You can tell from the pictures that this kind of design matches every nail shape. Some manicurists even try fruit prints or sticker on the milky bath and it turns out super cute. P2 are nail designs with several fruit patterns on it like strawberry and peaches. Well all the milk bath nails designs require some skills so it may be best to leave this delicate nail art up to the experts. If you have no idea where to begin, check out those pretty examples on the picture, they won't let you down.
Flame nails designs are the latest manicure trend. Many celebs have tried it and I've seen lots of cool pictures on Insta. To be honest, I didn't fall in love with this bold style at first sight- it looks too flashy and eye-catching, which is not usually my style. But later on I got to know there are many ways to fit flame nails to my own aesthetic. As a manicure enthusiast, I didn't hesitate to go to the nail salon to get this cute nail look done. It cost me a lot, but I think it's worth the money. I love the flames on the clear base. This minimalist flame design doesn't look too crazy. Two nails are different though. I love the element of butterflies, so I decided to add them onto my nails. They look tiny and shiny on my nails. I was actually very surprised that this combo of flames and butterflies worked out and I wanted to share this look with all of you guys. If you are interested in flame nails while haven't made up your mind to try it out, this look might be a safe choice for you!

The butterflies may be the most beautiful and wonderful animal on our planet. In general, butterflies are especially our girls’ favorite. No matter where they are used, they will all constitute a beautiful and attractive design. Butterfly nail art designs are becoming more and more popular and now they are completed in many creative ways. To catch the trend, I did a butterfly nail art at home all by myself. I choose a light pink polish with a glitter of purple. I think this nail art totally made me a cool girl and it fits any daily occasions. Here are the steps may help u. 1.Clean your nails like a normal manicure process 2.Choose nail polish color and select the color of the butterfly sticker. The contrast should be good. Mine in pic is actually a pendant from my necklace. 3. Apply the base coat. You need it to protect your nails. 4.Apply nail polish of your choice 2 times for a better look. 5.Press the sticker on the nails. If the they are small, just sprinkle them on the nails. 6.Then glue them on the nails with nail glue. 7. Apply a top coat to prevent the stickers from falling off.

A REALLY GOOD WAY TO SPEND $7
As you all probably know, I’m more of a skincare person over makeup. I’m a totally beginner who doesn’t like to spend a lot of time of my face so once I find something that does the trick I’m usually set on it. So maybe the title was a little bit of a stretch cause the primer is $30, but honestly the foundation ($7) is amazing on its own too ✨ I’m a huge fan of The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 and wanted to show it in action the comparison is NIOD - Photography Fluid, Opacity 12% and TO foundation ONLY 😍 FOUNDATION : 💪🏼 |PERFORMANCE| This water based foundation glides evenly and smoothly over skin. It gives great coverage, and effectively covers my redness and hyperpigmentation! I like the final look that is more of a matte finish. My skin can get oily, so I typically use a setting powder and powder contour to finish off. 🤲🏻 |TEXTURE| the texture is thinner then most foundations I’ve used in the past but by no means runny. Personally I think it’s a really nice consistency. Their website describes it as a lightweight, non-oily cream 🌿 👃🏻|SCENT| This product doesn’t really give off anything other then like regular makeup smell ? Haha 💦 |INGREDIENTS| I feel like their aren’t any super notable or beneficial ingredients in these formulas ( other then having SPF of course which is always a bonus) but there also aren’t any ingredients that are going to cause harm to your skin 💛 💸 |VALUE| for $6.90 to me this foundation is a no brainer, it’s great value, and works like a charm. PRIMER: 💪🏼 |PERFORMANCE| I Reaaally like this product. As a person who’s skin has a lot of red undertones, I find this primer super useful for skin correcting. In the summertime I typically apply it just under some powder foundation and am impressed with the results. Initially when applied it almost looks sparkly and you can tell that is all the small particles catching the light so I think it needs to be covered with a light powder so that those particles can just sneak through at all the right times (especially when it comes to taking photos) 🤲🏻 |TEXTURE| a little bit thicker than a serum I would say, spreads nicely and sticks to skin and stays in place. Just be careful around eyebrows and hair line as it will stick to anything porous. 👃🏻|SCENT| this product is unscented, but does have an extremely light but pleasant cosmetic kind of smell. 💦 |INGREDIENTS| the ingredients in this product are vegan and cruelty free . NIOD as a brand overall is very science driven and I have a lot of respect for their trailblazing formulas and ingredients. 💸 |VALUE| the price of this bottle was $30 Canadian for 30ml, I find a little goes along way and you if we’re using it every single day it would probably still last you a couple months. This is my go to primer whenever I am wearing makeup and will continue to keep it as a staple in my makeup routine ❤️
My 10 months of hair!
This post goes out to all of you wonderful wavy babes! Let me tell you, when I started trying to restore my natural hair pattern I stopped at NOTHING to make my hair as curly as possible. I wanted curly, voluminous, bouncy hair, and at first all I saw was limpy nothingness. I refused to accept the fact that my hair was wavy and not the coil ringlets I’ve always wanted. AND THAT HAD A HUGE EFFECT ON MY HAIR. Curly hair is very different than wavy. Here’s why. Curly hair will thrive off of thick products because let’s face it, curls need a lot of extra oomf to hold that wonderful curl, but wavy hair can be very finicky. Too much product? Crunchy, flat, lifeless. Not enough product? Frizzy, wide and fluffy zigzags that look like you slept on straight hair funky. I looked what felt like EVERYWHERE for anything to tell me how to style wavy hair, but all I ever got was how to take care of curls so I assumed. What’s the difference? In many cases, there is NO difference. Stay away from drying alcohols, no parabens, no waxes, etc etc. But what they don’t tell you is that there are certain products that are just too heavy for a bouncy, beachy wave. Oils are great! But too much or a combo of too many can weigh down the roots and make the hair stringy and flat. Too much gel creates a straw like effect that just makes me want to scream. And sometimes creams make your hair feel amazing, but there isn’t any hold to help your hair keep its shape. It’s all about trial and error. Some days will be the best hair day of your life, and other days you just want to shave it all off. But embrace those waves! Waves are the perfect medium between curly and straight! Waves can hold a tighter styled curl as well as hold a nice straight style from a flat iron (god given that the humidity is on your side that day aka non existent!) but natural waves are just as beautiful as both extremes and we have to keep in mind, that even though we aren’t naturally getting that perfect coil, some bouncy beach waves are all we need! Thank you for coming to my ted talk. See ya lovelies ❤️

Believe it or not, taking care of my skin, as small of a thing as it may have seemed, helped give me confidence to do other things I needed to do like physical therapy. This year, between quarantine & moving to a rural area, I got really into skincare again. This app has been super helpful & motivating! I enjoy writing for you guys so much!✍🏼I never thought I had good enough skin or was a good enough writer to be doing beauty reviews, but it’s always something I had great interest in.

Best Foundation for Oily Skin
Today’s topic, my girls, is all about oily skin foundations. I have combination skin. I am a combination oil in summer and combination dry in winter. I am 25, my skin condition is mostly okay through out the season. I have a lot of textures and pores around my T-zone - cheek and nose area. My T-zone and forehead are always oily and supper dry on my cheeks. In my daily skincare routine, I moisturize everything. For my foundation, I am a fan of semi-matte finish look. So I am always looking for a best foundation. I’ve tried and tested a lot through our the year and here I want to share my most favorite one for this year. I always put primer as part of my makeup routine. I moisturize first, then put sunscreen on and primer before foundation. This is my all year round routine. Sunscreen is for protecting my skin from sun damage and aging. With primer, I just found it keeps my foundation stay well throughout the day. Now here comes the review on the star product that we have today. I know a lot of my oily skin friends are loving it. This is to said perfectly made for oily and combination skin. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation I love the overall finish of this product. It has good coverage, 75% of the spots and acne scares are covered pretty well. It is also very light weighted. It is not too heavy or caky. I love the fact that it is creating this flawless finish but still very natural look. And after 6 hours, I start to get oily on my forehead and around my nose area. But it still looks pretty good even with after 10 hours. And I feel like I dont have to powder it that much I would also as always put a thin layer of loose translucent setting powder. One thing I have to say that I personally do not like it too much is the combination of my bronzer with this foundation. I not sure if it is the color or the texture, it makes me look grey every time I put these 2 together. But other than that, this is a fantastic product and I am loving it so far, Highly recommended to oily and combination. Dry skin might want to stay away from it.
