I have never heard of Demeter before, but thanks to the Canadian Beauty Blogger network, I was able to try out some of their products.

Demeter is a fragrance library that consists of over 300 different fragrances inspired by everyday objects and experiences. I received their FOOLPROOF BLENDING DUO in Clean Skin & Sunshine, and their FOOLPROOF BLENDING TRIO in Vanilla. I definitely had lots of fun trying these items out! Both of these sets are great because all the fragrances can be worn alone, layered on top of each other, and even mixed together to create your own fragrance.

I chose their FOOLPROOF BLENDING DUO in Clean Skin & Sunshine because I wanted to wear something light and refreshing. I don't usually wear a lot of perfume (or anything with strong scents) because I am prone to headaches. These two fragrances were great on their on, but even better when I mixed them together! The set actually comes with a funnel, four droppers, and an empty perfume bottle that is used to create your very own scent! I mixed together both fragrances with about 70% Sunshine and 30% Clean Skin. It was actually interesting to create my own perfume because I usually create my own nail polish and base the outcome on what I see, not smell. So although it felt natural to mix things together, it was a new experience to me, and definitely something I'd recommend to others.

I also got their FOOLPROOF BLENDING TRIO in Vanilla, which included Hawaiian Vanilla, Angel Food, and Gingerbread scents. The set comes with these three perfumes, as well as blending strips to help you create the perfect scent before spraying yourself with it. I liked Hawaiian Vanilla the best, so I decided to use that with a tiny spray of Angel Food to create my scent. I wasn't a fan of Gingerbread, but maybe I might enjoy it near the Christmas Holidays. 

Demeter has a TON of different fragrances that you can wear alone or mix together. Head on over to their site to check out all their awesome scents.

Mani Swap #2 with Pawlished.Kait

It's literally been a whole year since I did a mani swap. Last year, I did one with @pawlished.kait and both our nails looked super cute. 

Pawlished.kait's Mani
This time I chose to copy a nail design she did months ago (a lot of instagram scrolling was done!) where she used holographic polishes and starburst nail guides.

I started by painting my nails with two coats of Beyond the Nail - Solar Flare. When dry, I topped each nail off with one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat to ensure a smooth and super dry finish. When it was completely dry, I placed on some Starburst Nail Guides and painted over every nail with a thick coat of Beyond the Nail - Asteroid. I gently peeled away the nail guides while the polish was still wet, and applied another layer of topcoat when they were dry.

If you ever want to do a mani swap, send me an e-mail!

Inspiration from Instagram #6

I love getting inspiration from instagram for my nails. Today's inspiration comes from Nikki at @_polishaholic and her manicure using two Beyond the Nail products! See her look HERE.

I started by applying two coats of +Nail Experiments Easy Peel (Latex Barrier) around every nail. I used two coats to ensure it came off all in one piece. I got a makeup sponge and applied Beyond the Nail's Angel & Rudolph and sponged it onto each nail about 3 times to get good coverage. I peeled away Easy Peel and topped off every nail with one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat.

IrresistibleMe - Sapphire Hair Barrette

The Sapphire Hair Barrette is another piece from Irresistible Me! I chose this piece from their website because it was so bright, sparkly, and a piece that would get attention.

The Sapphire Hair Barrette is a gold barrette that features teal & sapphire rhinestones/studs that look like flowers. The colours are so bright and eye catching! It doesn't attach to your hair, but rather clips to itself with your hair in the clasp. It's a very sturdy piece and will stay nicely in your hair. It is a bit heavy, so I would recommend using this while having an up-do, which might prevent it from slipping out of your hair.

The Sapphire Hair Barrette is sold out at the moment, but visit to check out all their other great products!

Gold Flakes All Over My Nails!

I haven't done any matte designs since Halloween and I don't know why... I really like how my nails turned out and can't stop thinking of different combinations to paint my nails with a matte topcoat. 

I used one coat of Beyond the Nail - Deep Black and layered one coat of Beyond the Nail - Gold Flake Topcoat over it. I wasn't sure how I liked it, so I added L'oreal - The Matte Velvet over each nail, and added some gold studs to each nail. I'm so happy I made them matte because I'm LOVING how it turned out!
