My Christmas Looks

So I usually don't get inspired to do holiday makeup until the actual holiday. 

It really sucks.

Here are the makeup looks I wore and played with this Christmas.

Enjoy :]

 Christmas Eve family party :]
Golden Christmas Angel [inspired by my angel ontop of my Christmas tree!]
Christmas day.

Hope you all are having happy holidays, and the best New Year's :]
Lots of love,

My nailpolish bucket list.

Ok, let me first address the fact that I didn't do a classic Christmas look. 
I'm sorry! I just didn't have the time. I have a 6 year old and Santa was coming.
Enough said. Next series I do will be bomb and on time, lol.

So today, I wanted to go to Sally's so bad and just buy all of the polishes I wanted. However, since Christmas especially, I am broke haha.

So here are the top 5 polishes I am going to collect first. One by one. Enjoy :]

#5 - "The One That Got Away" by OPI
So gorgeous. I love metallics, I love purple, it's opaque and I want it.

#4 - "Emerald Black" by Models Own
This is part of their "Beetlejuice" collection. I LOVE this color. I have no idea where I can get Models Own, but I need to find out and order this online asap. I like having dark colors on my nails (i'm natural and square), but I like to switch it up every few days and this could be an 'all the time' color for me. I love the duo chrome.

#3 -  "Golden Green" by Models Own
From what I've seen online, I am really liking Models Own polishes. This is also from the "Beetlejuice" collection, and literally took my breath away. I have been looking for a green metallic for a long time. Everything was always too lime, or blue. This is GREEN. Hmm, I wonder if they have an army green...
Here it is :]

#2 - "Pros and Bronze" by OPI
I grew up on OPI. I've tried to convert so many times, but I always find myself back to them. I love the brush, I love the formula, just my favorite brand! This color is beautiful. I would consider this a neutral color for me. I wear a lot of bronze and golds. I'm Italian, what can I say ;]
Take a look-see...

#1 - "Sweet Peacock" by Orly
LOVE IT! I really love blue nails, but it has to be the right kind of blue. The milky ones look odd, and I don't like the robin's egg color, or easter colors... I don't know, I'm picky with blues and this is amazing. I love metallics, they make your nails really pop. My nails are my #1 accessory!
So here is this amazing blue. I've never tried Orly, but this is soooo pretty...

So yeah, I hope you liked this post. 
The colors are by no means in any particular order. They are all a part of the many colors I want to add to my collection. I am going to look more into Models Own. If you like nail polish like the ones I showed, I think you will like them. I can't vouch for anything physical about it since I've only been stalking it online, but the colors are amazing.
I hope you all had a merry Christmas, or happy holidays. Whatever you celebrate, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!

I can't help it... I give presents early ;]

I still haven't had time to do my Classic Holiday look... but, I have pics of the presents I couldn't wait any longer to give my best friend =)

I was as happy as she was, lol - I wanted to see the goodies too!

Ok so here are picssss


 Kat Von D "Metal Orchestra" palette :]

She LOVED them! I knew she would... the palette is so nice. She did a smoky eye while she was playing with it. 

The Sigma brushes are exactly what everyone says - friggen awesome.

They are so soft. She used the blending brush to do her eyes, totally amazing. The face brushes have yet to be used, but they are, again, amazing. Super soft. And really dense... but cushiony. No idea, but they are just nice and weighty and are going to be goooood brushes:]

I love the feeling of giving something to someone that you just know they're going to like. 
What she gives me is of course going to be equally awesome. So expect a post on that ;]

I loved that I got to do an 'open box' too...
Enjoy Chelsea ;]

"Naughty" holiday look

As promised, here is my naughty look :]

I really like how it turned out.

I did a purple and black cut crease, a silver lid, over the top lashes... contouring, a neutral blush and a purple lip (it's showing up a little pink, but it's purple).

I wanted major emphasis on the eyes, sultry and dark... very 'naughty' ;]

 [blowing kisses to Santa, haha]

Next up, a classic holiday look. Stay tuned :]
I love you for reading!

Lots of Love,

Holiday makeup look - "Nice"

Decided this morning that I wanted to do some holiday makeup. I don't have many parties or anything that I go to, just family functions, but these looks are what I might wear out or to a house party.

This first look is my "Nice" look. Obviously "Naughty" will be next, then a classic holiday look :]

So for this I used a shimmery white on the first half of the lid, a frosty green on the second half, and a Christmas tree green on the lower lash line and the outer V. Next I added some subtle false lashes and black liner. For the face I went really fresh with a bright, flushed pink cheek and a golden highlighter. The lips are nude with a frosty pink gloss on top. Hope you like it :]

I can't wait to do "naughty", haha!

Lots of Love,

Organizing my makeup...

Hi bloggers!!

It has been so long since I posted anything on here! So today I thought I would organize my mess of a makeup stash. Some of you have asked to see my collection, so here is drawer #1 that I need to go through...

This is going to take allllllll day!!
Definitely thinking about having a blog sale. I will upload another pic when I'm done [if I don't somehow drown in my stuff, lol]

I'm glad to be back and posting! Hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it).
How are you all doing with holiday shopping?! Thanks to the internet, I'm almost done :]

Lots of Love,
