Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini Nail Art Tutorial

I figure if I can make an attempt at nail art, anyone can! Sally Hansen’s I Heart Nail Art Stylo Pens have me wanting to collect every single shade! As a child, I fancied myself a bit of an artist and I was obsessed with collecting gel pens, colored pencils, etc…I recently rediscovered that addiction because of these Nail Art Pens!

Available at five bucks each and in 15 shades, these pens will totally appeal to your creative good nature. I was determined to create a really simple Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini Nail look with my I Heart Nail Art Pen.

Here’s how I did it!


Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner Review

Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner

I gave into peer pressure and grabbed up some Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner finally! Shea Moisture products are a bit hard to locate at Target around here as they are always sold out. But someone mentioned CVS carries Shea Moisture and I was indeed, lucky enough to find Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner at my local store!

So here’s my thoughts!


Near Naked Eyeshadow Recommendations

I love a near naked eyeshadow look which is why I thought I’d compile a list of near naked eyeshadow recommendations. These are actually all cream shadows I love and use constantly to get that barely there eyeshadow look! They are great for use in a hurry when you don’t want to go out of the house completely without makeup! They look natural, fresh, and they diffuse the appearance of dark circles and gives eyes a brighter appearance. Some of the shades are also great for concealing your upper eye lids so if you have dullness, darkness, redness, or blue visible veins on your lids these will do the trick of concealing those issues and brightening up your entire eye!

Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Water Review

Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Water

Maybelline Crean Express Miracle Water is exclusive to Japan but we do have a fair few of the Clean Express products here in the US in a similar formulation. A few years ago we had a rather big Cleansing Water crazy going on here in the US with major players like NARS and MAC creating their own varations of cleansing water but the trend died out rather quickly.

Cleansing water is definitely the lazy girl or guy’s guide to quickie makeup removal on the go. For a long time I was a mega fan of Mandom’s formula especially when I got home late and just didn’t want to sit down and do my massive nightly skincare regime. Cleansing waters are just so great for quickie makeup removal so you can get to bed super fast. Or even you’re one for double cleansing they are great for removing a majority of makeup and you can of course, follow up with another cleanser to remove the rest of the gunk and makeup they may have missed because lord knows most formulas don’t always get every single last bit of makeup from your face!

A few years ago Maybelline unleashed their Cleansing Express products on the world and one of the items in that release was the Maybelline Clean Express The Flash Clean Makeup Removing Lotion. It isn’t quite the same as this Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Water but if you’re interested in trying it out, it is more readily available at drugstores versus waiting for airmail, online shopping, etc…
