OPI Flower-to-Flower

Since I recently did a post on Catch Me In Your Net of the OPI Summer Flutter Collection, I thought I'd post another from the collection.
This gorgeous pink is called Flower-to-Flower.

I stamped the butterfly using Konad plate m41. The pink is this really lovely bright pink with a subtle silver shimmer. Very bright and girly!

Eye of the Day

This eye is really simple and perfect for summer. You can mix and match any colors you like. I just love turquoise eyeliner!

First I applied a nude eyeshadow all over my lid. Next, I lined my upper lash line with a teal liner by Rimmel called Emerald Sparkle. I did the bottom lash line with a dark blue also by Rimmel called Deep Ocean. Just make the two meet in the outer lash line and extend the line. Very easy and summery.

OPI Catch Me In Your Net

I recently bought the new OPI Summer Flutter collection. I just now have had the time to use some of the colors. Let me just say I am in love with "Catch Me In Your Net".

Natural light.

Inside with flash.

I know in the pictures it looks somewhat see through, but in real life it is very opaque. This color is a gorgeous sparkly shimmery teal. It leans more on the blue side, but there is definitely some green to it. Loves it!

Easy Nail Design

Lately, I have been really into doing my nails and nail designs. It's my latest addiction! I usually use Konad when doing nail designs, but sometimes I get lazy and opt for decals. These are my quick and easy nails!

The polish is Lucky Lucky Lavender by OPI from their Hong Kong collection.

The decals I used are from Forever 21. You can use any kind of nail decals that you like. However, be careful with which ones you pick because some can just be cheap looking stickers. So really investigate!

After you apply your decal make sure to apply a top cot. This will ensure the decal stays on and lengthens the life of your mani!

Citrus Eye

This is one of my favorite summer looks to do. I call it the "citrus eye" because the orange and yellow together remind me of yummy citrus fruits.

To do this look I used the NYX palette called Shangri-a, which contains a yellow, peach, and orange eyeshadow.

I started with the light yellow in the inner corner and worked it to the middle of my eye. Then I used the dark orange in the outer counter and blended it to the middle as well. I blended the two together so there were no harsh lines. To ensure seamless blending I used a little of the peach color on top of where the two met. I then used a light brown by MAC called Texture in the crease for a little extra definition.

First Post

This is my first post! I have an addiction to beauty products and thought blogging would be fun.

Stay tuned for updates about nail designs/polishes, eyeshadow looks, and anything else beauty related I must share!
