Today we are talking about nude nail polish. Nude nail polish is very popular this summer along with nude lips & natural blushes! I will be talking about nude lip options & natural blushes in later posts. As for today I have 5 nude polish options to share with you. I also went through the trouble of watching them for you! So enjoy!(See video below)
First is Forsythe by Color Club. I love this because it is a cool toned nude. Which is unique and not seen very often. This formula is nice and thin. I think it applies evenly and wears for a long time.
An alternative to Forsythe is this one from Wet N Wild called Yo Soy. This one is almost an exact match to the Color Club polish shown earlier. It may be a tiny bit darker but still beautiful either way. It is again a cooler toned nude. If you want to try a cool nude this one is only $1.99 at the drugstore. (I love this formula better than the Color Club one)
This next one is a beautiful warm nude. L.A. Colors Color Craze polish in Simply. This is a polish that can easily be found at the Dollar Tree. For being the most affordable polish I am going to show you it definitely doesn’t disappoint. It is such a smooth formula and will last just as long as any other polish.
This one is more of a milky transparent nude. Wet N Wild 2% Milk. I have the old version but they do have this same shade in the packaging they have now. This is one of my first nude polishes and it has a special spot in my heart.
These next three are more of the pink nudes. I still consider them nudes. First is the Sinful Shine with Gel Tech called I’m Blushing. If you have tried the Sinful Colors Polishes and you don’t like them, do not despair this formula is different. It is a gel like formula that drys fast and is very shiny. I have not had any problems with streakiness.
This one is my absolute first nail polish every. Revlon nail polish in sheer petal. It is more of a transparent pink nude. Perfect for brides, interviews, work or everyday wear. It makes your natural nails look better. So beautiful and classy. It can be built up to a more opaque color shown on the bottle.
This one is so similar to the Revlon polish except the formula is thinner and more transparent. I love this formula so great and smooth. L’OREAL wishful pinking. This is more pink and less peachy.
So whats up with the crazy makeup? On my social media I am doing a new makeup look everyday for 100 days. I thought since right now color eyebrows are the trend I would do a fun purple look. Check out my social media for my other pictures!

Happy Monday, I hope you are having a wonderful holiday. Last week was just about the craziest ever. My Phone is broken and my Mac started to act crazy to the point that I had to erase everything even my Final Cut Pro. So I was unable to do any videos or blog posts. Don’t worry I sorted everything out and I am going to share with you some summer nailpolish picks.
So I chose ten nailpolishes so that YOU can find a nailpolish pick that would fit you! I have nudes, brights, neutrals, bolds and fun picks.
Wet N Wild Wild Shine: Yo Soy http://go.magik.ly/r/BondBeautyful/8cfb/
Today I wanted to share my beauty favorites for this past month , because it is already MAY! Its so crazy how fast time flys and I have been obsessed with one particular makeup look all month long. I am also going to be starting a new series where I also do my Favorite Makeup Look for the Month. So I will be showing you a makeup look using these beauty favorites on Monday so stay tuned!
This past month I have been loving a very natural spring eye & a coral fresh lip + cheek combo. I feel like this all ties together beautifully. Bonus: I think this look is a beautiful spring wedding look as well! It photographs beautifully leaving a beautiful glow to the skin. So lets start talking products..
These two palettes have been my favorites this month. I know a lot of you bought these when they first came out. They are the Divergent palettes from the Divergent Kit. These are the shades I have been using to create my looks. These eyeshadows are beautifully pigmented, feel so soft & are easy to work with. The top palette is Erudite Palette & the bottom is Abnegation palette.
Now for the rest of the face I feel like all these products go together so nicely. The blush & Lippy just work together because they are both that coral type of shades.
These brushes are from Bh Cosmetics and man did they surprise me I love them. They are all skunk or duo fiber brushes and they do well in not eating up all my product. I also recently took out my Real techniques Beauty Sponge and it just leaves your face looking flawless. It is a great way to blend out foundation.
This Grafix eyeliner by L.A. Colors has been they product that makes my wing liner come to life all month long. It is really black and all though it took me a little to get use to the applicator it is beautiful. ( I don’t recommend it for beginners though)
This hand lotion I got from the Dollar Tree and I can say I am really enjoying it. There were two in a pack and I find that they are super convenient to have on your vanity & purse. Specially because my hands can get ashy looking.
Last is this beautiful Copper nailpolish from E.L.F. Called Copper. It is gorgeous and subtle so if you don’t like “in your face” type of polishes this one is perfect. Bonus its only $2 on their website!
So like I said I will be doing my April Favorite Makeup look Tutorial on Monday so make sure to check back then!
What is your current favorite beauty item?
Remember Beauty comes from within so let yours shine!
Happy Wednesday, today I wanted to tell you about a new collection from sinful colors. I have only seen these at Walgreens and they have a total of 36 Colors. The colors are amazing , they have some great spring and summer colors, as well as some dark colors. I bought 6 to try out so if you want to see the colors I got & What I thought about them then click below.
Let me start out by saying that these polishes are probably one of the best ones I have tried from Sinful colors. The formula is amazing.
So there is a lot I love about these. Out of the six I have tried I have not yet been disappointed they have all been hits. All you need is two thin coats and the color looks as pigmented as it does in the bottle. I have noticed that they are also super shiny without a top coat. They take only a min to dry which is perfect for moms and women who don’t have a lot of time to paint their nails. I also love how long they wear. I cook , clean , hand wash dishes and chase a one year old around so my nail polish tends to chip faster then other women. This nail polish lasts me a week and a half with a top coat & three to four day without a top coat , before they start chipping. But, the thing that really impressed me is how fast this nail polish comes off with regular nail polish remover. One swipe and I’m literally pretty much done with my nail! I hate when I have to sit and scrub my nail polish for it to come off , its too time consuming for me. I personally love these I think they are great I have yet to find something that I don’t like! These polishes retail for $1.99 at Walgreens , I haven’t seen them at Walmart yet but I am sure they are probably going to show up there next!.
So here are the swatches of each polish that I have. I did two thin coats and no top or base coat with these. I am so excited about these polishes because I have noticed that the formula is different than the regular sinful colors nail polish.
So now lets talk about my makeup look for today..
So I decided to go with a lighter pinker makeup look today. I personally am in love with my lipstick which is a color whisper in plum prospect. It is so creamy and slick and the formula is so thin but full of amazing color!
So What polish are you wearing on your nails today?
I hope you guys enjoyed this nail polish video & blog post I know I don’t do them that often! Stay updated because I am going to do a Spring & Summer Nailpolish of 2014 Blog post / Video pretty soon! Till Next time.

So today Im doing a fun Feastive Nail Tutorial… HALLOWEEN Candy Corn Boo Nails to be exact! I love rocking nail art but Im not going to lie im terrible and doing my own nails! So if I can do this then you can do! Its super easy and fool proof! I broke It down step by step and all the products I am using are Found at WALGREENS & they are no more than $2 products At most!
I hope you guys enjoy I love doing these sorts of things for you guys and I had loads of fun doing it!
All You Will Need:
Bobby Pin (To Make the Boo)
Orange Poilish- Wet N Wild Wild Shine : Sunny Side Up $1
Black Polish- Wet N Wild Wild Shine- Black Creme $1
White Polish- Sinful Colors Professional- Snow Me White $1.99
Nail Art Polish-Sinful colors nail art- Bright Orange: Orange Alert $1.99 Orange: Sunset $1.99 Yellow: Sunset $1.99 Shimmery Silver: What a night $1.99 (you can find them at walgreens)
Step 1 :Remove your previous nail polish…
Step 2: Apply the Orange & Black Nailpolish On your nails any way you would Like I thought the Black on only the two middle fingers was super cute! Dont forget to apply 2 Coats and make sure you dry them completely or else when you apply the tape it will rip off the nailpolish underneath!
Apply Your Scotch Tape: I tried to stick them on surfaces and play around with them before I put them on my nails so that the tape wouldn’t be too sticky, then I made a triangle and applyed them like so on my nails , This is going to make our candy corn look flawless..
Step 4: Then I grabbed my White Nailpolish and applied it right over top of the Tape, dont worry the tape wont let you mess up the black part around the candy corn so just go ahead and apply it all over …Let that dry without taking the tape off!
Step 5:Then You can grab your bright orange nail art polish and start designing your candy corn on top of the white, (leave the tape on there to prevent any mess ups) So candy corn is white, orange then a yellow base so I applied the orange in the middle…
Step 6: Then I bet you can guess.. I did the yellow next using the yellow nail art Polish from sinful colors ( these polishes are super great and they have many different colors… I have the whole collection!)
Step 7: Now I wanted to add Some glittery silver outline onto my candy corn this is totally optional! I just thought It added a nice effect and with the tape on there it is full proof and gurantees a straight line!
Step 8:Now all you have to do is pull of the tape once its dry or when its wet its up to you! I prefer to wait when its completely dry because I have a smudging problem! NOw this alone is sooo cute , you definitly do not have to add Boo’s to the other nails but if you want to like I did, Ill show you how!
Now you can grab your handy dandy bobby pin and you want to have a piece of paper or plate , you are going to put some nailpolish on your paper and then your going to dip your bobby pin in . Then Go ahead and start making your BOO, I just started by making two dots for the B and then I connected them Then Two dots for the OO Super easy!
Step 10:Now I wanted to add Some Black dots in the Middle of The B I thought It looked like little eyeballs and It just made the B stand out more! Completely optional thought , all you do is put some black polish on a paper and then dip in your bobby pin like before….
Step 11: Now again totally optional I wanted to add some stitch marks on the nails with the boo on it, Kind of like frankienstein stitches I just used the orange nail art polish that was a little darker than the one I used on the candy Corn and I made my Lines & Stitches……
Just apply a top coat and you are all finished!!!! As easy as that … Now To make It even easier I made a video Tutorial showing you how I did this… Take a look……
Do you want to see my outfit + Makeup for the day? Then Take a look at my Look of the day Naturals post…. I decided this was enough writing for one post!

Wet N wild Color Icon Eye pencils: These pencils are creamy, soft, pigmented and I have never had a problem with them.. You do have to sharpen them put they look great in waterline or smudged on lower lash line : did I mention they have some fun colors!
Profusion Brightening eye palettes: I found these at Walgreens around the Holidays like christmasy time, I have shade 01 which is more of a bronzy palette & 06 which is a pinky palette. These are great eyeshadows plus they can also work as a bronzy cheeky color or pinky cheek color. you can also use them as a nice highlight if you just concentrate on the lighter colors. THese are great palettes they are soft, great pigmentation & I’m super excited to see them again this year! Keep an Eye out on your local Walgreens!
Now lets go to Cheeks!
Elf $1 Blush: The two colors I have are Tickled Pink & Glow.. Tickled Pink is a gorgeous pink with some sparkles here and there , Glow is an orangey bronzy pink with shimmer. Sort of a peachy tone.
I added in these cute cuffs from the dollar store they are slap on and a great accesorie for a halloween costume ( I used these ones for my catwoman halloween tutorial, check it out if you havent!)

They have a great shade variety tot fit any need..
Next Are Lips…
Wet N Wild $1 Lipsticks: These are great they have a unique silver sheen to them and some have shimmer, but they are super gorgeous I actually wore the pink one Shade 502A in my products I regret buying video its a great pink/purple shade! The bronzy one is the shade 547 B Nyc Lipsticks : these ones are great too I have mousse which is a nude lipstick that is super creamy and has a bit of a shine finish , no shimmer at all..THen I have mahogany which is a deep vampy color that I used in my catwoman tutorial, Last this beautiful angel pink with a little bit of a frost finish called Petal perfect for winter time if paired up with a white sweater..
Elf Lipsticks $1 Essential line: THese are great lipsticks I i was really surprised by the quality my favorite one is Fearless which is a beautiful true red, this lipstick has a staining effect sos it is perfect for a date or night out! The other shades I i have are Nostalgic which is a nude & Coral They have some great shades to pick from and better yet they are only $1!
Elf Liquid lipstick & Lip glosses, : As you can tell I have lots of these , they both pretty much wear the same like a lipgloss, except the liquid lipsticks have more pigmentation, but with that said the lip glosses aren’t super sheer either they are creamy and soft not stick at all!
Last Nail Polish….
First off I have Wet N Wild WIld Shine Nailpolishes : These are so fantastic, the formula is smooth and pigmented You can get by with one coat thats how pigmented they are!
