Cupid Ain’t Got Nothin’ On Me

Happy Sunday lovelies! How are y’all? Great, I hope! Well, I finally did nail art again! It’s been like a month because I’ve been so busy, but I had to do nail art for Valentine’s Day, of course! Also, this Valentine’s nail art is actually really simple and easy, so let’s get into the details!

Products used:

How to:

  1. Apply base coat. I used one coat.
  2. Apply pink linear holo until opaque (2 coats).
  3. Apply one coat of top coat.
  4. Once the top coat has dried for 30 mins, peel off the foil stickers (use tweezers) carefully and place on nail(s). Make sure that all of the edges of the sticker(s) are smooth and flat (you may have to gently flatten it with your fingers; that’s why I wait 30 mins for the top coat to dry).
  5. Apply top coat to the back of the gems (I just do this using the top coat brush) and place on nail(s).
  6. Apply top coat on entire nail.
  7. That’s it!

That’s all for today loves! I hope you enjoyed and have a great Valentine’s Day! Questions? Concerns? Tips and tricks? Leave them in the comments section below! See y’all later. Besitos.

Grey Sparkles + New Nail Length & Shape

Happy Sunday lovelies! How are y’all doing? I hope you’re all great. I’m back to my regular job as a tutor and classes have started back, so this week’s mani is really simple. Let’s get right into it! And yes, I did recently cut my nails and gave them a new shape; I got bored with my normal 😝 I will let them grow longer, but I’m gonna keep this shape until I get tired of it lol.

Products used:

How to:

  1. Apply base coat.
  2. Apply “August.” It’s a one-coater!
  3. Apply glossy top coat.
  4. Apply the “Bloom” topper.
  5. Apply more glossy top coat.
  6. That’s it!

Yup, I told you guys that it was simple! LOL. My nails will most likely remain simple until February when I have Valentine’s Day ideas. I’m thinking about doing a Valentine’s Day inspired mani for every weekend in February.

Holographic Unicorns

Hey lovelies! Happy New Year! I hope you all are doing well. Today, we have my first mani of 2018! I decided to create a mani that really reflects what I like; pink & holo! Yes, it may be a new year, but it is the same me when it comes to nail art LOL. This mani was quick and easy, so let’s get right into the details!

Products used:

How to:

  1. Apply base coat. I used 2 coats.
  2. Apply base color nail polish. I used 3 coats of Spring Fling.
  3. Apply top coat and wait 30 minutes.
  4. Apply the unicorn vinyls to your nails and use the sponge technique to carefully dab the desired nail polish onto the stencil (not outside of it). I used Me & You for the unicorn.
  5. Immediately peel off the vinyl while the polish is still wet (use tweezers).
  6. Seal in everything with top coat.
  7. That’s it!

Ringing in the New Year – NYE Mani

Hey lovelies! It’s time for my last mani of 2017! Gosh, can you believe that the year is coming to an end?! I haven’t even thought of a New Year’s resolution LOL.  Today, we’re going to talk about this gold & black, glamorous mani that is just perfect for NYE. You could do this mani with silver as well if you’re not into gold. However, little miss Lala here prefers gold! Let’s get right into the details!

Products used:

How to:

  1. Apply base coat. I used 2 coats.
  2. Apply black polish.
  3. Apply top coat. I let my nails dry for 30 mins before moving on to the next step just to make sure that I wouldn’t disrupt the black nail polish.
  4. Apply more top coat and start patting on the gold flakes with an eyeshadow stick while the top coat is wet. There’s really no rule to how you disperse the flakes; just do what you like! I went for a full gold flake accent nail and a flake gradient on the rest of my nails. For the full gold flake nail, I found that it was necessary to apply top coat and pat on the flakes 3 times in order to completely cover the nail.
  5. Seal in everything with top coat. I used 2 coats.

That’s all for today loves! Again, another super easy mani. Questions? Concerns? Tips and tricks? Leave them in the comments section below! I hope you guys are enjoying the holidays! See y’all in 2018! Besitos.

Snowflakes for Christmas

Hey lovelies! How’s it going? Today, we are going to talk about my final Christmas mani of this year. It’s been really difficult for me to get this post written because I’ve been busy with Christmas parties and shopping LOL but let’s get right into it!

Products used:

How to:

  1. After applying base coat, I applied Bye, Girl! Latex Barrier around my nail, but avoiding my nail. You want this barrier on any area of skin that you think will get messy with polish from using the sponge technique. Let dry until it is clear.
  2. I used the sponge technique to apply Me & You to my index finger, pinky finger, and thumb.
  3. I used the sponge technique to apply Blue Belle to my ring finger and middle finger.
  4. I applied top coat to all nails.
  5. I dipped my detail brush into French White Creme to draw on the snowflakes.
  6. The snowflakes are pretty easy to draw, but if you need step-by-step visual instructions, I suggest watching this video by Kelli Marissa.
  7. I let the snowflakes dry for about 15 mins, then applied top coat.
  8. That’s it!

That’s all for today lovelies! Super easy! I won’t be posting until sometime after Christmas, but before New Year’s Eve (I have to do a NYE mani!), so Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Questions? Concerns? Tips and tricks? Leave them in the comments section below! See y’all later.

Christmas Nail Slice Wheel from BeautyBigBang – Review

*Press Sample*

Hey loves! It’s me again! Today’s mani features the last item of BeautyBigBang products I received this month! I’m just gonna say right now that the red and green polishes used are nameless, but are from Sally Hansen and wet n wild respectively. So let’s get into the review!

*The following swatches are applied over Ah Ha! Nail Lacquer’s Foundation Base Coat and topped with Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

Christmas Nail Slice Wheel (SKU:J4289)

Description: A wheel of random Christmas nail decorations.

How to use: After applying base coat, base color, and top coat, I picked up the decorations with tweezers and immediately applied them to my nails while the top coat was still wet. I sealed everything in with more top coat.

Availability: Available now.

Price: $1.29 USD

Overall thoughts: I’m not sure what material they are made out of, but these decorations are really nice and easy to use.  The only issue I have is that some of them don’t lay flat and get caught on things, leading to them being pulled off.

That is all for today lovelies! Be sure to check out BeautyBigBang’s store and social media, which are linked below:

Grey Cute Cat Nail Water Decals from BeautyBigBang – Review

*Press Sample*

Happy Saturday! I have another BeautyBigBang review today. Check out yesterday’s posts here and here. Let’s get right into the review! Don’t forget, you can use my code LALA010 for 10% off your order.

*The following swatches are applied over ÜNT Ready for Takeoff and topped with Glisten & Glow Top Coat. Blueberry Tart by Emma Jean Cosmetics was used as the base color.

Grey Cute Cat Nail Water Decals (SKU:J1412)

Description: 1 sheet of cat water decals.

How to use: After applying base coat, base color, and top coat, I cut out a cat and placed it in a container of warm water for 10-20 seconds. I picked up the decal with tweezers and used my fingers to slide the cat off of the paper. The cat stuck to one of my fingers, so I was able to press that finger against the desired nail and it applied perfectly. I let it dry for about 2 minutes then sealed everything in with top coat.

Availability: Available now.

Price: $2.69 USD

Overall thoughts: I’m in love! I think I’ve only used water decals once before this, and they were from a different retailer. I have to say that this application was very easy. My only issue is that part of the cat was transparent, so that area came out blue. Therefore, in the future, I would use these particular water decals over a white polish.
