Glitter Sideways French Manicure

Would you call this a Sideways French Manicure? I've seen a lot of people doing this nail art recently, and thought I'd give it a shot!

I used two coats of Beyond the Nail - Rouge as my base. When it was dried, I placed a French Manicure Nail Guide to the side of each of my nail, and painted the exposed area with Beyond the Nail - Red Microglitter. I topped everything off with one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat.

Red and Silver Christmas Nails

Christmas is officially less than a month away! Christmas nail art is probably my second favourite theme after Halloween. Everything is so bright and cheery and of course filled with excitement and love. I decided to do some fun chevron nails with the addition of snowflake decals (without them, they kind of look like Canada Day nails haha).

I started by painting my index and pinky fingers with two coats of Beyond the Nail - Red Microglitter. When they dried, I added a layer of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat and stuck on some Snowflake Decals in silver.

On my thumb and middle finger, I painted three coats of Beyond the Nail - Blizzard, followed by a coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat to smooth it out.

On my middle finger, I started by painting on two coats of Beyond the Nail - Winter Wonderland. When dried, I put on a layer of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat. When everything was 100% dry, I placed on some Chevron Nail Guides (thinner style) and painted on a thick coat of Beyond the Nail - Red Microglitter. While still wet, I gently peeled off the nail guides. I finished the look with another coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat.

Candy Cane Decals

Hi everyone! I have some very simple nails to share with you today. I wanted to used this Candy Cane Nail Decals I had, but had no motivation to do my nails.. so I painted them with two coats of Beyond the Nail - Winter Wonderland. When they dried, I got a dotting tool and added a dot of Beyond the Nail - Red Microglitter on my pinky, index finger, and thumb. I stuck on two Candy Cane Nail Decals on my ring and middle fingers, and topped each nail off with one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat.

LadyQueen Review: Backflat Ball Gold 3D Nail Studs

I was recently introduced LadyQueen, which is very similar to BornPrettyStore, so it was very easy for me to browse their website and find products. 

I was sent a couple of products to review and share with you guys. The first item is their Backflat Ball Gold 3D Nail Studs.

I started by painting my nails with two coats of Beyond the Nail - Frosty. When dried, I added one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat on my nails and stuck on a some of Lady Queen's Nail Studs to my nails (using my Wax Pencil). The nail studs have a hollow underside, so they don't have much of a surface area to stick onto my nails. However, they did stick onto my nails effortlessly.

These nail studs are available for $2.70.

Irresistible Me Review: Diamond Flat Iron

Have I mentioned how impressed I am with Irresistible Me products? I've already received their Silky Touch Hair Extensions (Review here, Straight hair photos, & Curly hair photos), and their Sapphire 8-in-1 Curler. I cannot tell you how much I like their products, how great the quality is, or how well they work.

I was so excited that I was contacted again to review their Diamond Flat Iron! I straighten my hair all the time. I cannot stand my natural hair.. it's frizzy, and doesn't know if it should be curly or wavy. When I have no time to do my hair, I usually put some frizz control cream in it and tie it in a bun or pull it back in a clip. I try not to straighten it as much as I used to, but only so my hair can grow and not be as damaged. 

The Diamond Flat Iron is here to save my life (or rather, my hair's "life"). I knew I was going to get a great product since I had a great experience using their Sapphire 8-in-1 curler, and I wasn't wrong! Irresistible Me's Diamond Flat Iron is unlike any other straightener I've ever tried. 

Look at all the features this flat iron has:

Irresistible Me's Diamond Flat Iron has everything you're looking for PLUS more! I've had flat irons in the past with 360° cords, temperature controls, and ceramic/tourmaline technology. BUT what makes this flat iron better than the rest is their super quick heat up, LED display screen, auto shut off feature, and their 1" floating plates (among other great things). 

I wasn't quite sure what "floating plates" were, so after a quick google search, I found out that it means the plates move from side-to-side to eliminate pressure points on your hair as you are pulling it down on your hair. The Diamond Flat Iron's ceramic plates are also coated with crushed "diamond particles" mixed with tourmaline (but, I doubt it's real diamonds, because this would cost WAY more if it were real).

Temperature LED digital display
Here is a before and after shot of my hair. I washed my hair prior to this, and blow dried it "straight". I did put in a smoothing cream to avoid as much frizz as possible, but it still has the volume. It took me around 20 minutes to straighten my hair, which is a lot faster than it used to take me. This flat iron heats up super quick, and stays hot the entire time I was using it. I did turn the temperature down when I began straightening the top half of my hair to avoid fly-aways, and it even cooled down quickly! Very impressive :)

Irresistible Me's Diamond Flat Iron is available on their website for $149 USD.
