My nails aren’t gorgeous. ¡Caray! I’ve been biting my nails forever and not until recently, did I stop biting them. Just a nasty habit. But of course, it does show. My nails grow discolored so I have to hide the discoloration with color. For a year now I’ve been wearing violet.
I try to stay away from glitter. But, just this once, I tried this beautiful Teal topaz. A burst of color but not too glittery. Easy to apply. It has a good brush that helps you stick to the nail and not smear your fingers. It looks great on toe nails and looks elegant. It lasts long without chipping. May I say that my toe nails look prettier too! Price $19
At first I was taken aback by the glitter but as the instructions explain, it may be lightly brushed on. It comes with a regular eyeshadow applicator and brush. Love the brush, which is what I used to make the color supple. If you want a deeper hue, use the applicator which will give you what it promises, “pure color”.
Long lasting and doesn’t crease as you would usually expect! A little pricy but as I have found, cheaper versions crack, break, and don´t last as long. Price:$30
I use long-lasting waterproof eyeliner due to my allergies. And I use liquid eye-liners for this reason too. They last longer.
My eyes are small so this enhances them and makes them look bigger. I’m fair skinned so I like grays with a little glitter, they soften the eyes. This eyeliner is not waterproof but it is long lasting.
It’s easy to apply and very precise. Glides on. Price: $19.00
