Matching Nails and Lips

Weekly Tidbits:

Google Friend Connect is gone forever. I put it back up on Thursday and people are still having problems with it. So, I will not be bringing it back. You can always subscribe via e-mail or follow me on bloglovin'.

Also, this week my blog reached a major milestone I reached 150 followers on Bloglovin'! Thanks to all my subscribers and readers, you are the best! I am so excited to be doing my very first giveaway this week, I will be announcing it this week so check back and make sure to enter.

Last night I was planning on doing my nails, and I became extremely frustrated because I am very tired of all the colors that I have(shopping trip ahead!). I had been painting my nails nude the past little while to match my lip color. If you read my blog, then you know that I am in love with Baby Lips by Maybelline in Pink Punch. I recently have discovered a nail polish brand called LA Colors. It's only $1 a bottle! It's just as good quality as Essie or Opi.  So, I decided to mix white nail polish with fuscia polish to get a nail color that matches my lips. 

These are the colors I used. All are LA Colors except for the glitter and it is by Spoiled. You can pick up all these at CVS.

I poured the fuschia on some foil and mixed in the white with a q-tip until I got the color I wanted.

This is my end result. My polish is a little darker than my gloss, but it's about as close as I could get.

Here I am wearing my favorite lip color for spring. 

Let me know what you think! Have you ever mixed polish colors? Do you match your lips and nails?
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
Thanks for reading!

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.

The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:

Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
