I’m Blue a dab a dee dab a da :)

First things first, regarding the title of the post – who remembers that song?! I definitely jammed out to Eiffel 65’s Blu Da Ba Dee on my NOW 4 CD in 2000 –

So many faves!

How about a little refresher? Take a listen, you know you want to! 😉

Color Club Gift of Sparkle[/caption]

China Glaze Dorothy Who?

One coat of Color Club + 2 coats of China Glaze created the perfect combo!

Natural light

Look 2:

I like both combinations for different reasons, the China Glaze glitter was a lot of fun! Has anyone else been wearing a shade of blue polish lately?

Nude, but not so naked lips

I’ve had an obsession with brown/nude lips lately and have been picking up a ton of different products to achieve the look I’m craving! I’m really happy with what I found and wanted to share 4 of my favorites with you:

1) NYC City Proof “Gold With Me” 460:

I picked this up at CVS for $2-$3. It goes on very light…as in white light, not sheer light, and has a ton of shimmer

2) NARS Female Trouble:

My friend Nikki worked at Sephora, and recently moved out of the country. Before she left she gave me a huge (seriously, HUGE) bag of products and this gloss was in it! It goes on as a deep brown shade that appears with a hint of pink/red. I love it!

3) NYC Smooch Proof Lip Stain Never Ending Nude 492

This I snagged at CVS for $4-$6. I love lip stains! This shade goes great under all of the glosses/sticks 🙂

4) Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Lipstick/Rosseto

Another CVS find for about $7? Great lipstick! A true nude shade

Swatches:

L to R: NYC Gold With Me, NARS, NYC Never Ending Nude, Rimmel London

I’ve been using these products religiously for the last couple of weeks. I recently Instagram-ed this pictures of the NARS gloss:

This lip is actually the NYC Stain with the NARS on top! I loved the combo!
This lip is the NYC stain, with the Rimmel lipstick on top, and a light coat of the NYC gloss

I really like all of these products! I’d have to say that my absolute favorites are the Rimmel Lipstick and the NARS gloss. The NYC gloss is probably my least favorite…there’s a little too much shimmer for me. The good news is that most of them are definitely affordable and can be found in nearly any drug or beauty store.

Let me know if you have a favorite nude lip product!

My Latest Obsession…

Here’s a little Spring color to brighten up the dreary Winter day we are having on the East Coast. I had a dream the other night that I bought a pair of fuchsia skinny jeans, and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since!

I have red, pink, grey, and blue skinny jeans that I adore, but I’m ready to expand to my collection for the Spring/Summer months. I’m officially on a hunt for pairs of fuchsia, peach, yellow, and greens!

Gap, Express, J. Crew, and Pac Sun have all been recommended to me by some lovely twitter followers.

Where have you found the comfiest pair?

Valentines Day Inspired Mani

As you know, I am in love with my gel manicures– when I was home for the Superbowl I did the cutest Valentines Day inspired Gelish mani on my sister, and I couldn’t wait to share.

We used three Gelish mini colors:

Stand Out is more vibrantly red than the above image, we decided to paint that on her thumb and pinky nails, Rendezvous dries much more hot pink, we put that on her index and ring nails and Exhale, a light pink/mauve color went on her middle.

I love how this manicure came out- it’s still clean, but it has a fun twist. We even considered adding a small white heart to a couple of fingers.

Valentines Day is one of my favorite holidays, and pairing it with a cute manicure makes it that much better. 🙂

What will your V-Day mani look like?
