NOTD #1: Glitter Tips

Hey loves! I hope you are all having a lovely day. Today, I've just been spending the day at home, relaxing. I did also end up painting my nails so I thought I would share with you all what is on my nails! Also please don't mind my unhealthy yellow nails. It's a result of being a nail polish addict.

 Here's how they look under artificial light.

And here's how they look under natural light.

It's literally so easy to achieve this nail design/art that I don't even think it's necessary for me to talk through the steps. However, I will quickly go through what I did and what nail polishes I used.

As for the nail polishes that I used, they are all nail polishes that can be found in local drugstores. I bought mine from Shoppers Drugmart in Canada.

I first applied a base coat on my nails. Since I did not apply any coloured nail polish on top I made sure that the base coat I used was shiny. For this nail look I used PRO FX Complete 3. This is my favourite nail polish base coat because it is so affordable and on top of that it acts as a topcoat and nail strengthener as well.

As for the glitter tips, I used a gorgeous glitter topcoat from Essie. Using a glitter topcoat where the nail polish colour is clear makes it easier to create a gradient look since I also used a clear base coat as the main colour of my nails. The glitter topcoat I used is Essie's Luxeffects in a cut above.

Then to finish everything off, I simply used the PRO FX Complete 3 once more onto of each nail as a topcoat. This makes it less likely for the glitters from the Essie nail polish to fall off and makes it more smooth.

So that's the end of this post. I hope you guys found this interesting and hopefully some of you will try this out yourself! Anyways, have a lovely day and enjoy the beautiful weather outside!

July Favourites 2013

Hey loves! I hope you are having a lovely day. Today, I'm back with a July Favourites post. I have a couple of beauty favourites along with fashion and some random favourites as well to show you all. This month I've really been trying quite a few new products and I'm super excited to share them with you. So let's get started!

The first product I have here to show you all is a perfume by Flora by Gucci in the scent Gracious Tuberose. It's such a lovely scent and I'm not even going to try explaining the scent because I'm terrible at that. However, click here to read how Gucci describes it. I've been wearing it non-stop since I've gotten it because it's not too strong of a perfume but still lasts on me all day long.

The second product I have here to show you is a sunscreen which can be purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart. I've been using Bioderma's Photoderm SPF 60 Cream for more than the month of July now and it would be insane not to include it in this month's favourites. It says it's Sunburn protection, moisturizing, and non oily. I totally agree with that and what I do is use this under my makeup every single day. I apply this after my morning skin care routine.

Now along the lines of face products, I have a mask that I've been absolutely loving. I purchase mine at a local supermarket called T&T. However it's also available for purchase online at sites like Sasa. It is the Royal Jelly Mask by My Beauty Diary. With this mask I find that it helps to reduce redness and leaves my skin feeling soft. Also, what I love about this mask is that I have really sensitive skin and this mask does not break me out all all.

This is the last face product I have to show and it is the Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-hr Perfecting Primer. I've been using this primer every single day under my makeup and I love how it makes my makeup stay on all day. Plus it's waterproof which makes it great for those hot summer days. I also find that it does a great job at making my foundation apply on very smoothly. I purchased mine at Sephora 

The next product here is a deodorant which is simply amazing. It is the Dove clear tone skin renew anti-perspirant deodorant. It's supposed to renew your skin and I've been using it for the month of July and so far I've been seeing some pretty good results. It's definitely lightening my underarm region which often gets darken from shaving. For those who have the same problem definitely check this product out! I bought mine at Walmart.

Another favourite I have for this month is a nail polish by Topshop in the colour Pillar Box. Recently I've been getting into red nail polishes again and this is the perfect shade of red. It's a true pillar box red colour. Definitely go to Topshop and check out their nail polishes even if this colour isn't your thing, they have a ton of their nail polishes on sale in store at the moment!

Next I have a hair accessory which I've been loving. I've been loving scrunchies. Totally retro but trust me on this one. It's perfect for anyone with thick hair. The scrunchies I find really hold up my hair well and plus they look cute on your wrists when they're not in your hair. They also don't have the metal part on it which means it won't damage your hair. Mines are from Ardenes but you can also purchase thicker ones at American Apparel.

That's it for my beauty and fashion favourites. Now I have some a music favourite for you. I've been listening to Rum Pum Pum Pum by f(x) non-stop. Definitely check this song out and their whole album called Pink Tape. It's absolutely amazing. #kpop.

And that's the end of my July Favourites. I hope you guys found this post interesting and definitely try out some of these products that I mentioned in today's post.
