Missing My Nails :(

Sooo, took off my acrylics 3 days ago and I feel like I have little boy hands!!! My nails are so paper thin uggh!!! So my nail lady removed them with another acrylic nail and used it to wedge between my own nail and the tip..and can I say pure pain?!! I wish I would've taken notice of the polish that I had on at the time. As you will see in the pic they were a really pretty red. I'm usually more of a neutral tone kinda girl but i was tryning to be festive soooo. The end result was dreadful and I'm upset I didn't take a pic of how they looked exactly after they were off cuz they were raw looking!!! And one was even cracked, but I couldn't be upset cuz I did it to myself!!! So after the painful removal I came home and buffed them myself then painted with a cool color from Sally Hansen called Wet Cement, and the name says it all!! Check the pictures...

Like I said wish I knew the name of this color but I didn't take notice but it was an OPI nail polish.

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Wet Cement

Lemme know your opinions on acrylics vs. natural, and maybe some suggestions for how I can strengthen my nails!!! How do you feel about the wet cement color??  Thanx 4 stopping by!

Be Good!

FOTD: Daytime Metallic

Today I was goin  out just to get these acrylics off! Don't get me wrong I love nails, but def needed to give them a rest. So I decided to do a metallic eye but wearable for daytime. I enjoy wearing eyeshadow and liner but sometimes I can get a little carried away so I toned it down. Let me know what you think!! I used the coastal palette and will be doin many looks from it in the future. I used 5 shades. May sound like a lot but if you think about it, usually if you do lid, crease and highlight, theirs 3 right there!

*LID- 31 (shimmer)
*OUTER V- 32 (matte)
*INNER CORNER- 20 (shimmer)
*CREASE- 28 (shimmer)
*HIGHLIGHT- 7 (matte)

Black liquid liner (Prestige) on top lid from inner corner to outer. Dark blue kohl liner along waterline and smudged w/ black kohl liner to finish used black masacra(Voluminous Million Lashes).

FOTD: Feelin Girly

Happy New Years!!!! Hope everyone had a great nite on the 31st! Time for new beginnings, and change! With that being said I decided to try pink eyes...I used the coastal scents palette that I posted in the last look. There's 36 shades so I figured I'd start experimenting and havin a little fun.. with this look I used 4 shades.

Okay Luxeys... so i used shades 23,24,30,and 35. Prime the lids as always!

*LID/OUTER LID- 35 (matte)
*INNER CORNER- 24 (shimmer)
*CREASE- 30 (matte)
*HIGHLIGHT- 23 (shimmer)

Use liquid liner on top lid, instead of using on the whole upper lid I used from the middle lid to the outer and flicked up and out for a drastic wing.
Bottom liner is a regular black kohl pencil. Add falsies if you're goin out, but with this look I just used mascara.

Hope u like! Enjoy!

Ps...I must say this looks waaay better in person so if you have this palette and try this look dont be alarmed by how vibrant it comes out, these pix make it look soft but its got more POW! Trust me! And remember you can always layer it on or wet your brush for an even more revved up color!
