Kiss Ready-To-Wear Nails Review

I am usually not one to wear stick on nails, or fake nails of any kind, but these ones caught my eye whilst browsing the beauty section at Target.
The Kiss gelFANTASY Ready-To-Wear nails provide two adhesive options. You can either glue them on, or stick them on with the provided materials.

I thought the sticking option might be a little better for my nails, so that is the route I took.
I have fairly large nail beds which is why I usually do not try fake nails, but these “medium length” nails fit like a charm!

They lasted for over a week and could withstand a lot. I am not one to be very gentle when it comes to my hands, and these nails were very sturdy and did not effect any everyday activities I may have done.

After about four days I did notice that the end near my cuticles rose up a little and my hair would get caught underneath and pull out, which was not too pleasing. I would suggest just placing the sticker as close to the cuticle as possible.
IMG_1239.JPGIMG_1027.JPGAll in all I was pleased with the product and they are perfect for any special occasions.

They suggest soaking in acetone to remove, but I opted for the worse route you could take, and pulled them off. Do as I say, not as I do, haha. And they were easy to come off, there was no sticky residue and it was like they were never there.

I give this product a 9 out of 10

Any recommendations for stick on nails?

Fun Tip Friday: Tips for Healthy Skin

Fun Tip Friday: Tips for Healthy Skin

helahtyskin
This weeks fun tip is about your skin!

My tips are usually based around our skin, and that is because having healthy skin  is important and it boosts confidence! I’m going to share a few tips that I have learned throughout the years that seem to help. 🙂

Tip 1:
Always wash your face in the morning and night. Do not sleep in your makeup ever! If you had a long night and are too lazy to wash your face with a cleanser, at least use a face wipe. I have learned from past experience that going to bed without washing your face can easily cause a breakout in the morning.

Tip 2:
Allow each serum to completely set before applying another. For my daily skin care routine I use a lot of different items. So if you apply multiple serums make sure to let each individual serum sit on your skin for at least a full minute before applying your moisturizer or another serum. This allows your skin to absorb more of the good stuff.

Tip 3:
Use a serum! If you do not use a serum, you should! They are great ways to target specific problem areas with your skin. I believe the serum is one of the most important parts to my skincare routine. I tend to use a brightening serum to reduce any discoloration on my skin. But they have serums to target any problem you may have with your skin.

Tip 4:
Everyone knows this, but always wear a SPF. I use SPF15 every single day, wether I am going to be outside or not. I have a fairly darker skin complexion so I tend to use a lower SPF, but any bit helps! Wearing SPF will help protect your fragile skin from the sun, and It helps protect your skin from aging as fast. ( I luckily do not have that problem yet)

I hope you found these tips helpful! I know a few may be some pretty common things heard around the beauty world, but they really do make a difference!

What other tips do you have?

Nail Polish Addict

Hi fellow nail addicts 😛

Today I thought it would be fun to show you all my nail polish collection. I may have gone through a slight phase in high school where I was obsessed with nail polish and painted my nails every day, so do not be alarmed by the amount of polishes I own, 145!

Anyways, I have decided to opt out of showing each and every nail polish I own, because there is obviously a lot of them! But I have shown a few of the brands that I seem to gravitate towards, as well as their names.

I italicized some of my favorites

Skin Saver

It is important that we are taking good care of our skin. Good skin = confidence. People should not rely on makeup to feel confident about themselves. But if you have blemish prone skin, it can lead people to feel like they need makeup to cover it up.
I am always looking to try new skin products and this week I invested in Rose Hip Seed Oil. I found mine at a Marshalls in the skin department and I have been loving it so far.

IMG_1038.JPG
I have normal to oily skin, so putting oil on you skin might seem a little scary. But I honestly can’t even tell its on my skin, as long and you don’t overload on oil.
I have had a little breakout this week, and this little guy have been saving my skin!

I highly recommend trying some!

You can find Rose Hip Seed Oil fairly cheap on amazon.com (here)

Does anyone else always run into the problem of not being able to choose a color? Sometimes I paint my nails three times in one night, before I ultimately end up choosing the color I applied first. o.o

What’s your favorite nail polish this fall?

50 Shades of Red

50 Shades of Red

This season I have been particularly fond of dark red! You can tell by the dark red Essie polish I have been sporting around the past couple weeks. As well as a signature dark bold lip for those fancy nights out. 🙂 IMG_0751.JPG

IMG_0191.JPG
I like mixing up the polish by switching from a matte to a shiny top coat. It’s a great way to keep using your favorite polish, yet making it look completely different!

Fun Tip Friday: Beauty Benefits of Pineapple

Fun Tip Friday: Beauty Benefits of Pineapple

imagePineapple is one of my favorite fruits! But not only is it good to eat, but it’s good for you skin! This high Vitamin fruit is a good way to clear acne, you can just apply to your face like a mask or toner, let it sit and wash off with cold water!

Pineapple is also high in anti-oxidants, and we all know how good anti-oxidents are for us!

You can use pineapple for your body and not just your face! Cut your pineapple into wedges and use the pineapple as a loofah in your shower. Make sure to rise good after so you aren’t too sticky. This will give your skin all kinds of healthy benefits!

Who knew a pineapple could do so much!
