LEFT/RIGHT: New Year’s Eve NOTN

Leave a comment

This New Year’s Eve nail look(s) of the night includes a nice neat pretty firework version on my left and a basic two toned firework esque look on my right hand.

For those of you out there trying to get the matching hand look that I covet over as my left hands skills is USELESS. This by which calls for a bare righty all together or a super simplified version of my lefty to fool the eye!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and happy New Year!!

Nothing spectacular SPECTACULAR but surely worth it!

GOODIES: 450° blow out spray
Nyx butter lip balm
Tarte lights camera lashes mascara
Caitlyn just mineral eye-shadow Orchid
BWC 3% AHA complex facial cleanser

POSITIVES: The Blow Out spray is wonderful and light.
Love the eye-shadow shade for my eye color, its a rich golden tawny warm champagne, SO packed with shimmer and nothing too chunky.
NYX lip balm smells like strawberry sourstraws which may not be a positive for most people.
Tarte Mascara is hopefully great, I’m saving it.

NEGATIVES: NYX butter balm has terrible color pay off and only worked to hint at another color when layered.
The oil has the LARGEST spray diameter…covered the bathroom floor in oil on the first shot, so there’s tour first warning WATCH OUT!

It was well worth the $10 spent, and shipping keeps getting better and better.

Smiling’s my Favorite Christmas NOTD

Living in Southern Texas doesn’t NOT call for owning the amount of sweaters I do.
I can’t help it. I just need a light breeze for soft and fuzzy sweaters to beckon.

December 2014 ipsy sneak peeks

December 2014 ipsy glam Bag

I love this time of year so much, R and I love the process of getting ready for Christmas just about as much as we love the actual day! I’m nearly half way through Christmas present shopping and my lights are all strung up. I must confess our Christmas tree is STARLESS at the moment! I am working to find the best one!! No luck yet!

Christmas preparations
You can see them all around
People getting ready
Almost everywhere in town
Are you ready
For Christmas Day to come
Sing it with me
Or if you’re a monkey, hum!
(Or ‘chum’ according to my 5 y.o. We Love Christmas Curious George!)
