Spring Nail Colours

Hi Beauties,

For this spring, its all about pastel bright nail colours, sort of like easter eggs colours. I've always loved bright nail colours on my nails especially my toes  so this is an excuse for me to wear all my bright nail polishes during spring/easter. I think these colours could also be worn in the summer of course. Save the berry and vampy colours like eggplant and black for the later months.

"Think of nail polish as an accessory, like a chunky necklace or a gorgeous handbag," Baek says. "You can make a statement without being flashy." So step away from the sheer pink and embrace the color storm, one shade at a time."

From my personal collection of spring colours
From left to right:
ELF Lilac Nail Polish-
Ardene Zen similar to essie mint candy apple
Ardene yellow nail polish - ardene is a canadian brand
L.A.. Colours colour craze nail polish in current- this is a shimmery pastel green
L.A. Colours colour craze nail polish in electric charge- very pretty pastel pink
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail color in pacific blue shares how to wear these bright colours.


HOW TO WEAR IT "Yellow nail polish looks amazing with khaki and safari colors.


HOW TO WEAR IT "If you're wearing lilac polish, you have to wear leather. The leather adds a hint of irony to a prim shade. Lilac softens the hard edge of the leather." 

Hot Pink

LA Colours in Electric Charge
HOW TO WEAR IT "Hot pink looks cute with an all-black outfit, Avoid the impulse to pair it with bright patterns or florals. Your look gets too busy." 

Mint Green

HOW TO WEAR IT "This is a very feminine color so pair it with a deep chocolate brown or an edgy gray. All the pastels colors look great with a punk rock twist."

Ardene's Zen
LA Colours in Current

Bright Blue

HOW TO WEAR IT "Wear blue polish with all white. It's fresh and summery."

Hope you have your spring colours already nailed down. Continue having a fab weekend and don't forget to check out the post on my Birthday Giveaway Contest. Stay beautiful.

Different folks, same strokes

Hi Beauties its been a while, I know. I have been working on my other job after my main job so my passion which is sharing with you guys got lost in the shuffle. I try not to let that happen but apparently the definition of being an adult some how consists of working and not following your passion. But I'm here now. I have been meaning to write about how women of different skin tones can pull of the same colours sometimes. I did this experiment with my friend Kyla, who is a little darker than I am where I put her in two looks that I wore a few weeks ago. And what do you know... both looks worked on her perfectly.

The first look is with both of us wearing stila lip enamel from the Barbie collection in "TICKED PINK". I love this bright fuchsia colour. It is one of my new favourites. Now to make it work on me I wore the stila lip enamel on top of Covergirl Queen Collection "POWDERPUFF PINK" lipstick to make it even richer. For Kyla, we just put the tickled pink on her bare lips.

Then I was inspired by a look I saw on a magazine and tried it on myself with my coastalscents smokey eye palette using all the purples and then I tried it on Kyla who usually wears less eyeshadow but it really opened up her eyes. If you do purple eyeshadow try it with a pink lip.

And then we did our nails. I am wearing Sally Hassen Xtreme Wear nail colour in pacific blue with MIA Secret Crackle over it and Kyla is wearing NYC Longwear  in Fuchsia Shock Creme with Crackle also.

So sometimes the same colour can work on women of different colours. Have a good night and I will try to keep the posts coming. Bon soir mes cheries.
