Neon Chevron Valentines Day Nails!

Hey guys! Sorry I didn't post last week..I wasn't feeling very well so my nails were very plain and simple. They kinda looked like mermaids though...

Anyways I went to Ulta over the weekend and got my first Essie and Orly polishes!!! The Essie was a very light, shimmery purple and it was only $5 since it was on clearance. The Orly one is the brightest color I've ever seen and I'm in love with it!!! It almost glows in the dark it's so bright!

So here's my nails for this week.. It's neon green and gray chevron and on my ring finger I have the Essie as a base and a cartoon heart for Valentines Day.
 The gray doesn't look that bad in real life, but on photos it looks horrible..

I really love these!! Hope you liked them! Bye guys!!!

The No 'Poo Movement!

It's not what you're thinking! It's no 'poo as in shampoo! I saw it on Pinterest the other day and got really interested! So, I was looking it up and it's where you stop using shampoo completely.. sounds gross and dirty but, it's really not! You see, shampoo strips your hair from its natural oils and causes it to produce even more. So if you use shampoo everyday your hair is most likely over producing a lot of natural oils.

Instead of shampoo you could use 1tbsp of baking soda mixed into 1 cup of water and store it in a squeeze bottle. I heard that that the mixture is supposed to feel slippery in your hands.

And then for a conditioner you can use 2tbsp of either apple cider vinegar or white vinegar mixed into 1 cup of water and store it in a spray bottle.

When you're in the shower first, get your hair wet and then pour the baking soda mixture onto your scalp and massage it in well. Let it sit for a minute and then completely rinse it out. When you're done with that spray the vinegar mixture on the rest of your hair focusing on the ends. Rinse out your hair very well. Don't worry about smelling like vinegar...the smell goes away when your hair dries. :)

Now I started this on Wednesday and did it again yesterday. The first time it worked really well! My hair was very soft but, on the third day it was starting to get greasy again so I washed it that night. In the morning it was very dry and greasy/waxy on some parts of my did not feel good so today I rinsed it out with water and a tiny bit of the baking soda mixture and it now feels much better.

I've read many peoples stories about their experiences of being no-pooers and almost all said that there is this adjustment period where your hair gets really bad before it gets better. I hope it's not that bad because of school and stuff but, if it is I'll be wearing a lot of ponytails ;) 

Reasons to Start
- less oily hair
- it becomes more manageable
- curls become more defined (if you have curls)
- and many more that I can't think of at the moment
There are so many uses for baking soda! I keep this little jar in my bathroom and use it when I brush my teeth, which I'm pretty sure are getting whiter!

Are you a no-pooer? Does it work well for you? Comment below and tell me what you think about it! 
I'll definitely be doing updates about this! I'll also have a nail post up hopefully by tomorrow!

~Bye Guys!~

Mismatch Nails!

Hey guys! I have great nails to show you guys today!! So for these I felt like doing a different design on every. single. nail. :) It took me like 2 hours because it was hard to think of different things to do and I was watching Lost! If you haven't seen this show, you need too! I've been watching it on Netflix and I'm seriously addicted.

Anyways, for my nails I chose 3 colors that are all from China Glaze.
 Here's what they all looked like! :)
And for these close up pictures I used the Easy-Macro Lens which just straps on to your phone and takes amazing macro shots!
 Ok, for the top left I used a fan brush, dipped it into some polish remover to separate it, and then dipped it into some polish and lightly dragged it across the nail. It's definitely my favorite nail!!

 The rest are pretty self explanatory on how to do them... I did these about 4 days ago and there's only 1 jewel that fell off and minor tip wear! I love Seche Vite!!
Hope you guys liked these!!

Coral and Chevron Nails!!

Hey guys! So I have some good news and I have some bad news.. I'll start with the good news...
My nails look good! I did a very simple design for now. It's a chevron accent nail and the rest are a coral color!
 Cool right?
And now for the bad news.. I was ice skating the yesterday with my friends and only like 15 minutes into it my leg slipped back, I turned and I dislocated my knee. -_- This isn't the first time this has happened. But, I sat on the ice for so long that my pants actually froze to the ground!

Ok, well that's enough of that... :)
Hope you liked the nails! And sorry for the short post!!
Bye Guys!!<33

New Years Nails and Phone Case Addiction!

This is my first post in the new year and it doesn't feel any different... haha anyways I did have a New Years nail design.. it's not my best since I'm still trying to figure out how to use the striping tape..
yea..not that good... it has 2013 on the purple nails just in case you couldn't tell..

And on to another thing in my cases.
I'm addicted to making phone cases.

On Pinterest there was this idea where you could decorate a piece of paper, the same size as your phone, any way you want to. Then you stick it in the clear case! I love it! I've made about 25 in the past three days and I'm pretty proud how they turned out! When I didn't have many ideas I looked at other cases online and could almost replicate them! Here are some of them..
 I freehanded all of rulers! Just sharpies and a pencil!
 They're so addicting to make! I'm obsessed with it..I change them like everyday..

I think that's it for now! Hope you liked this!

Bye Guys!!<3

Anchor Nail Art!

Hey guys!! I was going to post this yesterday but, it was getting too late and I was tired.. :)

First, I just wanted to show you how I looked yesterday!

So, the other night I curled my hair with "flexi-rods"... what you do is you get your hair slightly damp, wrap a section of hair (as thick or as thin as you want depending on the size of curl you want) around the rod and then secure the ends. Then you wait till your hair dries all the way.. I usually sleep with them in...

In the morning when you take them out its a perfect no-heat curl! So when I took them out in the morning it reminded me of how Taylor Swifts hair looked when it was always curled! Then I tried to do my make-up and look like her... here's how it looked..
There's an effect on all these pictures so really, my lips were red instead of bright pink.. I didn't look much like her but, I like how I did the make-up! I think that was like the first time I wore lipstick.. :) haha

For my nails, I was trying some of the different polishes I got.. for the nails that look pink ( it's really like a darker pink red color) I used the Avon - Watermelon and for my ring finger I used Sinful Colors - Rain Storm. I have 1 coat on for both of these polishes!!

Then on my ring finger I used one, of my many striping tapes that I just got, in the color gold!
And for the anchors I used the silver Destined polish!

I only have one coat of Seche Vite on my ring finger because I might be changing these soon..
 Sorry for the blurry pictures.. but, they're anchor nails! I really don't think it's time for anchors since it's more of a summery design but oh well... I like them!
ehh.. this one's really blurry... :(
Bye Guys!!<3

I got a Helmer!! (Picture Heavy Post!)

Hey guys!! Guess what!?! I got a Helmer!!! If you don't know what a Helmer is, it looks like this..
It's like a tall filing cabinet sort of thing from Ikea.. a bunch of nail bloggers have one and I wanted one so bad!! I've only filled up about half of 2 drawers with nail polish and in the top 2 drawers I have top/base coats,glitter, and nail art supplies..leaving the last 2 drawers empty! I love it so much!!

I also got some nail polish for Christmas!
 My cousins got me these 4 and they're soo pretty!! I've never heard of this brand before but, it works great!
 Then I got these 3 Sinful colors nail polishes! They are beautiful and work great!
 These are my first ever Avon polishes and they are definitely not my last! The reddish pink color goes on perfectly in only one coat!
And these are also my first Julep and Nails Inc. polishes!! They go on so smoothly!
I didn't take a picture of it but I also got a Seche Vite topcoat!!! I tried it today and I think it may be my new favorite!

Now, you might have noticed that a lot of my pictures aren't the best quality and that's because I take them on my phone... but, I got this camera lens called the Easy-Macro and it takes AMAZING close ups!
oh.. I also got some EOS lipbalm.. haha but the bottom picture is the lens

and these 2 pictures I took with my Iphone and the lens! It works so well!!

The last thing I'll show you is this sign/picture I got to hang in my room!!
I love it!!!! That's it for this post! I'll do another post later tonight... Bye guys!!

Merry Christmas Eve! Reindeer Nails!!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!! I can't believe that Christmas is already tomorrow! It came so fast! I think I started doing Christmas nail designs at the beginning of the month and I loved every single one! Sadly, this is my last one for this holiday but, don't worry.. it's a good one!

I think that's mostly it! Hope everyone has an amazing Christmas!!! Sorry for the short post!
