Knowing When to Toss Your Makeup

It is easy to ignore the tiny symbols that are on your bottles, tubes, and containers of makeup. You probably have seen these markings hundreds of times as they appear on all of the products that you use. This includes toothpaste, shampoo, and nearly all of your makeup. However, as you are probably unaware of what it means, you tend to overlook it.

Actually, these little symbols are trying to tell us just how long we should use our makeup and beauty products for. Much like everything else, your makeup has an expiration date as well.

Thanks to mightygoods.com for creating this helpful infograph!

Maybe it’s time to do a beauty product purge and get rid of those products you may not have known were out of date!

Nail Polish Addict

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

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

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

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: How to Make Your Manicure Last Longer

Want to avoid those annoying chipped polish nails for a few days longer?

Try wiping your nails clean with acetone (nail polish remover) before you apply any nail polish. This will remove any excess dirt, oil, or any thing else that may prevent your polish from adhering to your nails properly.

We all know that sinking feeling in our stomach when we realize our favorite nail polish is too dry and goopy to apply. 😦

But this is a quick and easy fix! All you need is nail polish remover!

Take some nail polish remover and add a little bit into your dried up nail polish, shake it up and you’re good to go!
