July Favorite’s

This month slipped past rather quickly. I cannot believe that it is time again for my monthly favorite’s. This month and in the future I am making an attempt at keeping my picks down to five. Which, for me is very difficult. There are ton’s of favorite’s but the few I picked this month deserve a mention.

  • John Masters Organics Deep Scalp Follicle Treatment & Volumizer – I ran out of this product recently which made me realize how much I love it. “You don’t know what you got til it’s gone”, they say. Well I reordered it and received it just in time for this post. This scalp treatment helps balance the PH of my scalp allowing me to skip a shampoo. My scalp and hair feels healthier when I use this.  review
  • Monoi Tiki Tahiti – I love coconut oil and its endless benefits. I adore the gardenia scent of this one which has become my summer fragrance. I love to apply it after a shower and to my legs giving  a lovely glow. See a tip on how to use it here.
  • Caudelie Beauty Elixer – I guess this product goes without saying especially in the month of July. This toner has become my travel companion. I use it as a toner, to set makeup, and throughout the day to refresh. I simply love it. Get it here. (full review to come)
  • Illamasqua Nail Laquer in Lament – This might be my favorite coral color ever. It is bright and the formula is fantastic, it is easy to apply and lasts! Swatch
  • Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned – I adore these matte lipsticks from Nars and have been getting my wear out of Damned – a deep magenta. Swatch , See me wearing it here

What are your favorite’s this month? I would very much like to hear!

A great selection of eyeshadow to create this summer’s hottest looks. Coral Crush is the color that sold me on this palette. It is a great color for summer to make blue or green eyes pop. The brown colors in this palette are gorgeous. I love using Mermaid to line either the upper or lower lash line. It is a love for me. Looks to follow.

NOTD – Summertime Seashell Nails -Tutorial

Seashell-Inspired summer nail art

 

What I used:

  • Sparitual nail polish in Ice Ice baby
  • LASplash Cosmetics nail art glitter in White
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

How-to:

  1. Apply 2 coats of Sparitual’s Ice Ice Baby (or any pearl color nail polish) and 1 coat of top coat then wait to dry
  2. Apply a quick dry top coat to one nail where you want the glitter to be (i applied midway to tip, I like the ombre effect)
  3. Over a piece of paper (to catch fallen glitter) dip wet nail into glitter pot
  4. Tap excess glitter over glitter pot
  5. Continue on each nail individually
  6. Wait for nails to dry then run under water to thoroughly remove any extra glitter
  7. Apply 1-2 coats of top coat to seal and smooth out any roughness
