$250K Black Diamond Nail Polish!

8 Aug

Hey everyone! So i stumbled upon this story today…. apparently the jewelry company, Azature,  has unveiled the most expensive nail polish in the world, which contains 267 carats of black diamonds!!

This one-of-a-kind polish is the newest luxury beauty product to hit the market. It is priced at a cost of a whopping $250,000 per bottle! Azature will also be releasing another version of this nail polish for $25 for all of us regular folks out there… Instead of 267 carats of black diamonds, this more reasonably-priced version will include a real black diamond in each bottle! It will go on sale later this month at Fred Segal stores throughout Los Angeles and most likely some places online as well. You can check out the whole article: here. I personally think that $250k is a ridiculous amount to pay for one bottle of nail polish, but the $25 version of this polish sounds more reasonable!

If YOU had the money to afford this black diamond nail polish, would you buy it?

PS. FUN FACT: With $250,000 you can buy approximately 20833 bottles of OPI nail polish….Now that would be a lot of polish 😉

Beauty Tip Tuesday!

31 Jul

Hey everyone, today I will be posting a few random beauty tips for a new “segment” on our blog called Beauty Tip Tuesday. From now on, every tuesday I will post a few fun and helpful beauty tips! Hope you enjoy and find these tips useful.

  1. Fast Way To Treat Blemishes: So, you’re going to need some vodka and ice- and no you’re not going to be drinking it! To treat the blemish, dip an ice cube in the vodka and press it on the pimple for a few minutes. The cold will reduce the swelling while the alcohol helps to dry out the pimple. TRUST ME, this may sound wacky but it actually works because the blemish will actually be gone by the next day!
  2. Banish Your Blackheads With Baking Soda: Add water to baking soda until it forms a paste and then apply it to the area affected with blackheads. Let it sit for about 30 minutes and then wash it off with a scrub brush. It should clear up even the toughest blackheads!
  3. Use Cold To Boost Shine: You don’t need a bunch of hair products to get that glossy finish to your hair. The first way to boost shine is to rinse you hair with cold water after conditioning in the shower. The second way is to hit the cold button on your dryer at the end of your blow dry and run the air through your hair for 30 seconds! You should be left with a natural glossy finish in your hair!
  4. Lemon and Vinegar Nail Care: There is no need to spend big bucks on nail products when you can use things you can find in your kitchen for nail care. To soften cuticles and to prevent them from peeling, rub lemon rinds on your fingernails.  Also apply, vinegar to your fingernails as a top coat before applying nail polish, to help the nail polish adhere better.

Metallic Mani!

20 Jul

Hey everyone! Today, I decided to try out the nail trend where you paint your ring finger a different color! If anyone knows the name of this design, please comment below… because I have no idea and I’m pretty sure it has a name (other than “nail trend where you paint your ring finger a different color” hehe). This cute nail idea is great for summer since its playing up a bright orange with a bit of a metallic pop. So lets get to it! ALSO, i would like the apologize in advance for my horrible nail painting job.. I’m no professional!

The polishes that I used to create this look are as follows:

I just use a simple orange polish from the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Collection which is available  at most drugstores, and I also used a gold glitter polish and metallic magnetic (didn’t use it for the magnetic design-just the color) polish from Tivoli.

You don’t have to use the exact same polishes as me but these are just the ones i had at home!
If you are interesting in a good metalic nail polish, check out the new Mirror Metallics Collection from Essie: here.

To create the individual gold metallic nail, I applied the metallic polish on my ring finger of both hands. After the first coat of the metallic polish dried, I went over it with the gold glitter polish to add a bit of sparkle.

That’s all it took to get this cute nail design. I hope you enjoyed my quick take on this nail trend and don’t forget to Like/Comment/ and Follow for more beauty tips!

25 Jun

Hey everyone! Recently I have been spotting collared/bib statement necklaces all over the place and I personally love this trend. An accessory like this can totally bring together a whole outfit and add that extra little something in order to make the outfit complete.

A few celebrites like Kylie Jenner have been spotted sporting this new trend:

Kylie’s gold collared necklace brings together her simple outfit and adds an extra edge to her peach blazer.

A necklace similar to Kylie’s can be found here.

These collared necklaces can be found in a bunch of different styles and designs. Since this trend can be found in such a variety of different designs, it is simple to find a style collared necklace that best matches your personal style. They can come  in leather, beaded, fringe, metallic, sequinned and more.

These are just some of my personal favourites that I have found online!
