Homemade Ombreee

       So I have seen so many posts and pictures on Ombre nails that I had to try it!!!! But first I had to decide what color to do it in..... decisions... decisionsss.... decisionssss.... the most logical one to make taking in my nail color collection would have been to do PINK!!!! BUT I wasn't in a pink mood... I was in a BLUE mood...... only problem I don't have enough blues to make this look so what do I do??!!??!!??!!  MAKE MY OWN LOL

This is how I achieved my Ombre look:

      Orly in :Liquid Vinyl" , Essie in "Aruba Blue" and SinFUL COLORS in "Snow Me White".  

      I chose The Essie blue because I absolutely LOVE this blue!!!!!  First I decided that I wanted two darker shades of the original blue and two lighter shades. Then I took a paper plate and mixed the Aruba Blue with the Liquid Vinyl twice to achieve the two darker shades. And then I mixed the Snow Me White with the Aruba Blue to achieve the two lighter shades. (I mixed them with toothpicks and used a nail polish brush from a clear nail polish of mine that was empty).

        This is how it turned out:

      Hope you enjoy!!!! Sorry that my photography skills are lack luster..... lol..... will work on that :)

MyGlam January Bag :)

         So I was finally able to sign up for MyGlam (MyGlam)..... I missed out on their first bag :(  I was sooooo excited to receive my first one though!!!! I waited patiently by my mail box..... okay well maybe not right next to it but you get the drift :)  I was super excited to open it 1) because I love makeup / beauty and anything that entails so when I can pay 10 bucks a month for samples on items I may not have tried before or want to spend the money on because I'm not sure if its worth it... I'm all in!!! and 2) I knew that a sample of Wen hair products was going to be in it (WEN) and I have been wanting to try it for forever!!!

        So yea I used it as soon as I opened my bag and I LOVE IT!!!!! can't wait to purchase the full size products.  My hair is coarse, thick and frizzy... I let my hair air dry and to my surprise I had little to no frizz and that's very unusual for my hair :)  Next day it is still soft, shiny and I curled my hair and it stayed wavy and bouncy ALL DAY without any hairspray!!!!!!!

        Okay so on to the other products.... trying to keep this short haha.....

         This is a FULL SIZE sample of the Freeman Facial Peel off Mask in Cucumber (Freeman).... I used this and I liked it. It smells amazing and made me skin feel really soft. Only thing is I don't think I let it dry long enough because I had to wash some of it off where it wouldn't peel off :/  other then that great product.

       Next is a sample of Sheer Cover concealer in light/medium (sheercover). I used that today as my concealer and under my eyes and I didn't feel the need to retouch it as I do with my other concealers. All in all I think this is a good product just a tad dark on me. And I think if I had dark spots I needed to cover or red acne spots I'm not too sure if it would cover those. So if you need a major concealer to cover stuff like that not sure if it would cover those, but for minimal stuff it worked wonders :)

        Last but not least is a nail polish by the Balm Hot Ticket in the color "Call Me Iridescent" (thebalm). Now I have good and bad about this polish.... but the bad is just my own personal opinion of not liking the color on my own nails :(  It looks pretty in the bottle though kind of a pinky/peach cotton candy color with glitter in it. I think it would look good on someone who isn't as pale as me haha!!!! However it is a good quality nail polish, it went on smooth and quite opaque on the first coat and it dried rather quickly.... I did however use two coats so I could get the full effect of the color... just upset it doesn't look good on me :/

      Any how..... I was very pleased with my first bag from MyGlam and can't wait to receive my next!!!!!
