While I was decorating my home for the holidays, I thought…why should my nails be left out? So, I decided to add some seasonal décor to them. Below are 4 easy steps to add “pine cones and red ribbons” to your nails. You need light pink and white polish, and “striping polish” like Stripe Rite from Sally Beauty Supply in medium and dark green, white, red, brown and black. Remove any old polish that may be on your nails. Tip: never use Pure Acetone on your natural nails…it dries out the nail bed and makes the nails brittle. Apply a basecoat. I use Nail Life Gripper. This basecoat will remain a little “sticky”.
Step 1: Apply pink polish to your entire nail. Then paint a white diagonal swatch across the nail.
Step 4: Paint two red swirls for ribbons and your finished.
Apply two topcoats like Out the Door and let dry.
Now your nails aren’t “left out in the cold” for the holidays.
I hope you have fun and I will be blogging again soon.

Oh, the beauty of fruit for your face!
Yes, seriously. Are you aware of the benefits of super foods for your face? Well, let me fill you in. Fruit provides vital antioxidants and vitamins that keep you healthy. As the body’s largest organ (yes, the skin is an organ), skin thrives on the same vital nutrients that fuel the body; fruit provides these.
Sally Beauty’s new skincare collection, Frutique beauty by nature, is a perfect combination of nature and science, resulting in powerful fruit-based formulas to regenerate, protect and nourish your skin. I’ve used them all and think they’re great! A daily dose of Frutique is recommended for all skin types! Treat your skin right by establishing a skincare regimen.
Start off with the Berry Berry Purifying Cleanser. Next move to the Papaya Enzymes Exfoliating Gel. Both of these will get your skin perfectly clean, and smell refreshing in the process. But, remember not to over-exfoliate! Two times a week is just right.
The Citrus Essence Brightening Crème evens out skin tones and clears blemishes. This is my favorite fragrance!
Lastly for your daily moisturizer, choose what you are most comfortable with. The Hydrating Peach Smoothing Crème is best for with early signs of aging. Harvest Grape Firming Crème for those that need a little bit more umph!
End your day (after you’ve cleansed, of course) by applying the Apricot Nectar Nourishing Mask. It works to hydrate, smooth and soften the skin. Top that off with the Apple Night Restore Crème for intensive wrinkle reducing at while you sleep!
Be sure to check back Friday for some fabulous freebie fun! You won’t want to miss out!
In the magazines, they always ask celebrities “What’s the one beauty product you can’t live without”? And they respond with some ridiculous answer like ‘sheer lip balm’ or ‘I just put on a smile and I’m good to go’. Right. That’s why they’re celebrities. Me, on the other hand…. Where would I start? Concealer for my under-eye circles? Mascara for my invisible eyelashes? Bronzer so my freckles aren’t as pronounced? Or…
Sunglasses! That solves everything!!! I’m good to go with a great pair of sunglasses, even when I don’t have my makeup on. I went through an all-natural phase a few years ago, which my sister questioned.
Sister: Aren’t you going to put on any makeup today?
Me: No, my husband says I look better without it.
Sister: He’s lying.
Big, bold, fashionable sunglasses are perfect, whether you’re headed out in the sun, or simply like the look regardless of the forecast. I found some fabulous pairs at Sally Beauty that looked designer-ish, and were comfortable too! The styles are more glam than sporty, and there’s plenty of choices. At $7.99 I even got my sister a pair.
Yesterday, Pantone LLC announced their pick for 2011′s Color of the Year. The winner is – drum roll please – Honeysuckle!
What do you think? Are you a fan of this hot pink hue? To me it’s little more flattering for most than say, 2009′s Mimosa. I know I plan on trying to incorporate more pretty pinks and bright berries into my look. What about you?
I already have plenty of these colors in my wardrobe but my beauty arsenal is lacking in the Honeysuckle color family, so it looks like I need to do some shopping! :-) Here are my picks:
1. Beyond the Zone Color Jamz Party Time Pink
2. Palladio Tinted Lip Balm in Rosey
3. FingerPaints in Steal My Beating Art
4. Femme Couture Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Blush Melon
5. Sally Girl Mini Squeeze Tube Lip Gloss in Pink
6. Femme Couture Baked Eyeshadow in Pinkini
