Tag: Would You Rather….?

The lovely Julia from Penny Pinching Perfection tagged me.  This was fun to do, I actually had to think about some of these!

1. Would you rather lose all your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?   I have a lot of other products than palettes so I definitely would rather lose the 2 palettes I have 🙂

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again? I’d rather to never be able to cut it again. Every single time I cut my hair I always end up missing it 😦 I love my long hair, and right now I’m trying to grow it out and it’s painful. It’s not growing as fast as it used to!

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek? I love neutral colors so coral is the closest thing to it 🙂

4. If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup? Clothes! I have more makeup than clothes lol

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick? Definitely eyeliner as lipstick, so many possibilities!!!

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora? Sephora. So many different brands to choose from!!

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life? Oh my this is a tuffy. I would have to say eyeshadow. I love lipsticks and glosses!

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in the summer or summer clothes in winter? Depends if I’m inside or outside 😉

9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round? This one’s easy! DARK! I can’t wear bright colors, the dark hides my flaws! If I see my nail splitting I can’t help myself!

10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product? Eye. When I’m lazy or in a hurry I leave out the eye makeup.

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
I work in the healthcare field and it’s a messy bun everyday 😀
12. Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?
Oh no, another hard one!!  Hmmm, look pale or have short nails forever? I would have to give up lip gloss, there’s always lipstick 😉
13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or Sharpie them in everyday?
Lmao!!!  I’ve seen pictures of both and trust me a sharpie is a lot better than none!!!
14. Would you rather live without makeup or nailpolish?
UGH, Nail polish. First thing people look at is your pretty face. 😉

Beauty: Green and blue gradient with striped accent nail.

So far my favorite manicure to do is gradient.  Such a simple technique for such a beautiful outcome.  For this manicure used Sinful Colors Mint Apple, China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le, China Glaze Fairy Dust, and Seche Vite top coat.

 

 

This picture is blurred to show the Fairy Dust do it’s magic 😉

Beauty: Nailspiration from my daughter’s room

Having a girl definitely has it’s perks. Her room is FULL of inspirations for nail art. Even though it doesn’t really come out the way it does in my head, it’s still fun practicing! 😀

This manicure came from  the paint on her walls.

Beauty: Striped Manicure

Ok, so two things I’m not too fond of when it comes to manicures so far.  Sheer polishes and striping tape.  I can put the tape on with no problem but once it’s on I look at it and go, “Yuck!’  The tape on this manicure used to be purple.  For some reason it changed to silver.  I tried with and without top coat and still it lost the purple color.  I guess Ebay is not the place to buy it huh?  Sheer polishes are a whole different rant!

The color on my nails are from my Ulta haul (post Here) OPI DS Opulence, China Glaze No Fair Lady, and Zoya Yasmeen.  I LOVE the OPI color,  unfortunately the pictures give it no justice. (I need practice taking pics).
