First #MM of the Year 2017!

As some of you may know, I took the week off because I, like other people I imagine, was busy with all the Holiday plans but now I am back, ready to keep you guys up-to-date! Hope everyone enjoyed their Holidays! & definitely wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!!!

Being that today is #MM #ManiMonday I would like to share with you my New Years manicure! Ever since my birthday trip to Miami, where I was inspired by Holographic designs and Rose Gold everything, I seem to still obsess over metallics! I recently learned about LeChat’s Mirano line at a nail salon and I must say that I am in love with this collection. I got this gel manicure done on New Years Eve and have decided that I am going back to explore the other colors too! The one I have on now is called “Immortal” not only do I like the name but the color scheme is beautiful and different. “Immortal” seems to be a “Chameleon” color scheme showing different beautiful colors at different angles! Colors I saw were emerald, amethyst, and bronze, just to name a few. Honestly, like I mentioned in my IG post, the pictures don’t do them justice, definitely something you should experience in person!

#MM Essie, OPI & Orly Collections!

You ladies may have noticed that it has been a while since I wrote about nails; it used to be my obsession..sorry but that obsession turned into a beauty and makeup obsession.

But regardless, I should never forget nails! For Fall 2016, these three have their very own collections! I chose to put these together in one post because they are all in the same price range, at $8.50 each bottle.

#MM Nail Contouring?!

First thing I asked when I heard about this, is this really a thing? Yes apparently so. Just as there is contouring the cheekbones for the face or even body contouring now there is also nail contouring!

It’s actually pretty easy to try this out..all you need to do is use a clear or nude color as base coat and then use whatever color you wish straight down the middle (keeping the same size of the brush). I would recommend any dark color or even black as you see here so it stands out a bit more.

You can also see this with a lighter color as shown in this model below (as long as darker than base)

Just like in contouring the face with highlighting, for the nail you can use clear or nude color base. To finish this look make sure to not use completely matte but a semi-matte topcoat instead. The little bit of shine gives off better illusion of longer nails.

This was actually used at NYFW during the latest Vera Wang runway show. This look was made reality with Jin Soon nail polishes:

How about also trying out the metallic trend along with this trend here with a silver line like the one below

So what do you say ladies will you try this nail trend out? I sure am thinking about trying it myself..

Happy #ManiMonday

#ManicureMonday KFC Nail Polish!?

kfcnails

Yes you read right! KFC made their own “finger lickin’ good” edible nail polish! What?! Lol well, now they have thought of everything have they?

KFC debuted their edible nail polishes in Hong Kong. Working together with McCormick and Co, which produces the spices for the actual KFC chicken, they produced 2 flavors: “Original” (beige) and “Hot & Spicy.” (wild orange) Each one is said to be made with natural ingredients of their “original recipe” so yes your nail polish can expire!

How to use: “Apply and dry like regular nail polish, and then lick—again and again and again!”

Check out their commercial:

Artistic Nail Design

Artistic Nail Design were inspired by the film, “The Huntsman Winter’s War” that just came out in theaters on the 22nd. Just in time for Spring, this is part of their Spring 2016 Collection.

What makes this collection so unique is their Frost Coat Top Coat that you can pair with the other colors in the collection leaving a beautiful finish!
