My longtime obsession with long nails //PICS!🔪
Yup, I’m that girl clickin & clackin on her phone! Sorrrry💁🏻♀️ 💅🏽💅🏿💅🏼💅🏾💅🏻 I’ve been obsessed with crazy long nails since i was a little kid. I got my first set of acrylics probably sophomore year of high school. I was pretty tomboy in high school even though I wore a lot of makeup, they were pretty annoying at first & the dance companies I was in banned fake nails for shows & even practice. I would get sets occasionally in college, but went to art school & they definitely get in the way with certain processes. ♿️ I got severely injured in 2014, when I was 26, & the cuticle biting habit I’ve always had was sooo bad because I literally had nothing to do all day. I was working as a server in California at the time, so I was definitely not allowed to have fake nails or nail polish of any kind. I ended up returning to acrylics full time after I got injured & I could finally stop biting my cuticles! The nails just look so pretty, I felt less eager to mess with them & the nails are thicker than a natural nail so you can’t pick at your skin (or pop pimples with this length! Plus!) 💔 A combination of moving away from my favorite nail tech, ( TONY I LOVE YOU & OH HOW MISS YOU SO! ) & obviously quarantine, forced me to abandon my long fake nails for now. The damage: Getting full acrylic sets & fills pretty much non-stop for almost 6 years, my real nails were not cute, thin & brittle. I was so lucky to have a very talented & meticulous technician for the last 2 of those years. I honestly never had any of the nasty issues some people can face with acrylics. What are acrylics? Acrylic nails are created by first applying a plastic nail extension with glue to part of your nail to add length. Then a powder & liquid acrylic monomer are combined into a sort of “blob of dough” & shaped onto your nails with a brush & air dried. Next they will be further shaped & smoothed with manual & electric files. A GOOD tech will take about 2 hours, not less. I always chose gel polish that’s cured with a UV light on top of my acrylics, but you can also just do regular nail polish. I worked up to this length- they make me feel like myself, know what I mean? But I wouldn’t recommend starting off long if you aren’t used to it. Your natural nails grow out & then in 2-3 weeks you can get what’s called a “fill”, where your polish is removed & a small amount of the monomer is applied to the base of your nail bed & blended into what you already have on your nail. Quarantine: Had my last real set in February... I ordered long press-ons a few times, which I really loved, but they’re just not the same strength-wise. I was actually kinda rough on my nails & rarely broke them. At least when press-ons pop off, you can just glue it back on instead of rushing to the salon! I’ve had fun trying ones with gems & charms! In the past I stuck to solid colors & glitter with acrylics due to the cost & sitting time. IMO the best press-ons are from black owned business, Hawt Nailz!
Skincare Trend - Superfoods 🥬
Skincare trends! Do you follow, skip, or wait for others to give you their honest opinion? Well if you said the latter then I am here to tell you all about this superfood skincare trend and more specifically the kale, green tea, and spinach superfood trend 🥬🥬🥬! The way I found out about this trend was by searching on Instagram and seeing what my fellow beauty bloggers were sharing! For reference, I have oily combo skin with subtle dry patches during the winter season! At the moment my skin is relatively clear with large pores as my main concern. First off is the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser ($10.00 - 2 oz). This cleanser is cold-pressed with antioxidants to remove makeup and prevents build up in the pores, while keeping skin’s pH balanced. It’s meant for most skin types (dry, normal, combo, and oily). You can use it in the morning and evening, however I mainly use it in the evening to truly clear my makeup from the day! Unlike other makeup cleansers, you should dampen face and use two pumps of the superfood cleanser. Then add water gradually to get all makeup off from the face! P.S this product comes in a glass bottle making it great for the environment and recycling! Next superfood spotlight features the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream with kale, spinach, and hyaluronic acid ($48.00 - 2 fl oz). This thick yet lightweight cream is perfect for oily combination skin! It’s full of antioxidants, rich superfoods, and hyaluronic acid! It targets the following concerns: fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, and loss of fitness. The kale is full of vitamins C, E, ana K! The green tea is packed with antioxidants, and HA is a natural hydrator! I like this moisturizer is perfect for my current issues! Like I mentioned before I have oily combination skin and dry spots with the changing weather on the east coast! I’ve been using Youth to the People for a few months and I am excited to share I am a big fan of the products, but they do run on the more expensive side 😕. This is a vegan, cruelty free, and gluten free skincare line! And as far as the skincare trend featuring superfoods, well I am 100% a fan and encourage all to hop on this bandwagon because you will not regret it! Superfoods bring so many benefits to our skin and it would be a shame to not spread the word around for all to hear! #CheriePartner
SOL de Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Tinted Lip Butter
- SOL de Janeiro ‘Brazilian KISS Tinted Cupuacu Lip Butter - (shade - Teeny Bikini -) - I purchased this Lip Butter from Boxycharm during Add-ons this month. I great an excellent deal on them. I think I paid around $4 each for them. I got Teeny Bikini which is an Orangey Coral color, because they didn’t have the sheer color I wanted. It’s one of the best selling shades so it sells out fairly quick. - A little about SOL de Janeiro - “SOL de Janeiro” literally translates to, “Sun of January”. The name, capturing the moment when the Sun reaches new heights and Summer is at its peek. Rio is the city that inspires us with its radiant Sun, and endless beautiful beaches that inspire our Brazilian Beauty Secrets. Brazilian Beauty is an attitude surrounding natural, confident beauty, and playing up your best assets. - products are made in USA - finest globally sourced ingredients - completely Cruelty-Free - subscription service options - next-day and 2 day shipping options - First Impressions - I honestly thought this product would be more of Lipstick than a basic Lip Balm. I thought that because it’s colored or tinted. This Lip Butter comes in pretty packaging which is AHHHMAZING! It comes in a Metallic Copper tube with a large white top. It’s actually really unique. - Scent & Texture - I was totally wrong thinking this was going to be like a Lipstick. It is definitely more like a Balm or a Butter. It goes on so smooth and moisturizes my lips so well. It feels like the Lip Balms that come in a jar, not a stick. It is absolutely luxurious! It smells like a basic Balm. This brand has a unique scent that is very recognizable. - Effectiveness & Results - I am so happy I purchased this Lip Butter! It moisturizes my lips so well. It plumps my lips by hydrating them. This Lip Butter doesn’t irritate or dry my lips out from wearing it too often or too long, like most Lipstick do. It has a light tint of color but it’s almost sheer as well. It goes great under a Matte Lipstick. It can be worn alone or with a pretty gloss or topper over it. - My Final Thoughts & Conclusions - SOL de Janeiro is an excellent brand. It has super luxurious ingredients in most their products. They are really affordable and definitely worth the purchase. This Lip Butter is perfect for dry lips. It’s an excellent product to have during the cold Fall - Winter weather. I absolutely recommend the brand and product. Thank you so much for sticking with me on this one! I hope you enjoy my article and enjoy the Lip Butter if you purchase it. If you have any questions, comments, complaints or suggestions? Let me know in the comments below!! UNTIL NEXT TIME LOVELIES................ SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Kiss Tinted Cupuaçu Lip Butter
👉🏻How to choose the right styling tool👈🏻
For those who don't like fixed hairstyles and prefer to do the styling by their own, hairstyler is a “must-have”! For me, these three are my most commonly used tools: hair straightener, curling irons and hair waver. 🙋🏻♀️Straightener: No matter what type of hair you have, everyone should have a straightener. Not only straight hair style, many mermaid, boho or beachy waves can also be done with it. Note, it takes some skills to make waves with straightener. So if you are a newbie, maybe curling irons suit you better. 🙋🏻♀️Curling iron: The common sizes are 25mm, 28mm, 32mm, 38mm, etc. Different sizes will lead to big differences in the curl, volume, and its durability. Generally speaking, hairstyles made with small curling irons will last longer than the large ones. If you have long hair below the chest, you are recommended to choose a size of 32mm and above, so that you can have some smooth and natural waves. If you don't know what kind of style you prefer, maybe 28mm is a good choice. It is the most practical size and also does a good job at maintenance. If you have short hair or want a cute style hairstyle, then 25mm will not be wrong, which will make you look very energetic and can last for a really long time. 🙋🏻♀️Hair waver: The hair waver is a great tool for beginners. It is easy to operate and can help you achieve a very good hairstyle in less than 15 minutes. Although the types of styling that hair waver can do are very limited and far inferior to an ordinary curling iron or straighter, it is still good for some occasional lazy days.
✨The BEST Tarte Shape Tape dupe✨
Many have tried, but only one can be the winner. I have tried: 1. COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Concealer 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Concealer 3. REVOLUTION - Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer And the winner is... REVOLUTION - Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer !!!! The reason I only give it 4 stars is because I wish it were bigger! The product does run out quicker than I would like, but the product itself... *chef’s kiss* The Colourpop concealer gives wonderful coverage and lasts for a good time, which is what earned it 4 stars from me. My problem with this one is that it’s full-coverage to a fault, and almost feels cakey at times! If left on the skin for any amount of time too, it becomes very hard to blend. The Maybelline Fit Me was extremely underwhelming for me... I suppose if you already have perfect skin this could be a match for you, but if you want to conceal anything with your concealer, I’d consider swerving away from this one. The Revolution Conceal & Define trumps the competitors because of its creamy texture, perfect blend-ability, and perfect amount of coverage. When I put this over my freckles, it allows them to still shine through... BUT also when concealing acne and dark spots, it blows the competition out of the water. It is so versatile and can be used for multiple different purposes. I think I’ve found my forever concealer!! P.S. This product is only $7 at Ulta Beauty!!! Run to your nearest Ulta and snatch it up❤️
