T^T /waves farewell to Google Reader

Hey all!  So sorry this is not the UDPP vs TFSI battle, or the Bubbi brush review I promised, still working on pictures and finding the time to use everything!  (I have not been wearing much makeup lately because it is so FRIGGIN HOT!!!!!!)  I have also been busy since I began my new set of classes.

Anyway, as  I am sure all of you are aware by now, Google Reader will be no more as of tomorrow.  So to all of my lovely Blogger friends who have kindly kept up reading my silly nonsensical posts, I thank you and hope that you will continue to stay in touch with me through Bloglovin'.  I have already done the import for all of the lovely bloggers I follow and I hope that you do the same ^___^ ♥

Follow on Bloglovin

Thank you again everyone!  I will be back with posts later this week with more updates and a Bubbi Brush review!  Hope you are enjoying the hot summer weather, and a Happy 4th of July week/weekend to all of you.  Stay safe!

Quick Update!

  Hi everyone!  I hope everyone enjoyed Father's Day weekend with their fathers, or had a nice weekend in honor or celebration of their fathers! ♥

  I wanted to quickly post, not only to let you know what to expect in the next few weeks from me, but also to let you all know I am still alive, and greatly appreciate the readers that still check in on me from time to time! I'm one of those bloggers that do not receive very many readers, but the ones that do read and comment or don't comment make me happy ^___^

  So, I finally scrounged up enough money to treat myself a bit, and decided to pick up a few Bubbi Brushes.  If you are not familiar with Bubz, you can find her on Youtube and on her website.  I have always wanted to purchase her brushes, because I heard a lot of good things about them, and they look SUPER soft, and they are quite affordable.  She recently came out with her second line/version of the brushes, and I picked up a large face powder brush, the HD brush and a small detailing brush!  I can't wait to use them, and as soon as I do, I will be sure to do a review for them.  Have you heard of her brushes?  Have you tried them yet or is it something you want to try out?  Let me know what your favorite brushes are currently in the comments below! ^___^  I'll be seeing you guys again soon!

Manicure Monday: Neon Summer!

  Hi everyone!  I have another Monday Manicure to share with you all today!  I'm super excited for summer, and what better way to prep for sunny days and warm nights than a fun, bright, neon mani to kick off the season!

  

  This week's manicure star is China Glaze's Surfin' for Boys.  It's a fun neon, tangeriney/orange shade and has super subtle neon hot pink shimmer.  So in the sunlight, you get really gorgeous flashes of hot pink!  Unfortunately, my camera does not do this shade justice, it's more shimmery in person.  For my accent nail, I used Essie No Place Like Chrome as the base and then over the top I did a few coats of Zoya Gabrielle to stick with the orange/tangerine theme.  I also used my usual base and top coats as well.  OPI Nail Envy Original for the base and Seche Vite's fast drying top coat.


Base color:  China Glaze Surfin' for Boys




Accent nail base color:  Essie's No Place Like Chrome



Accent nail:  Zoya Gabrielle over the top of No Place Like Chrome

And here's the finished manicure!






  It is such a fun and bright pop of color, it makes me happy and reminds me that summer is just about here!  I think this look is also perfect for the beach or anything outdoors!  I also have Surfin' for Boys on my toes too!  Overall I loved all of the polishes I used for this manicure.  Surfin' for Boys went on like a smooth dream!  And it was perfectly opaque in 2-3 coats.  I also really enjoyed No Place Like Chrome, it's a great metallic color and will definitely be using it for other looks as well.  Zoya Gabrielle is amazingly gorgeous!  I used it for a manicure a few months ago by itself and with 2-3 coats, it's the most sparkly and gorgeous orange color ever.  If you all get the chance, be sure to pick up these colors, they're hot and perfect for summer or warmer months.

  Also, just for fun I threw in a brief FOTD below.


  This is pretty much my typical everyday makeup look, but with a little extra kick.  My everyday look is sometime just BB cream, eyeliner and mascara and some gloss or lip balm.  Sometimes if I have more time I do the look in the picture above.  For the eyes, I used the darkest brown cocoa color in my Holika Holika: Holy Deer trio eyeshadow in #2 as a wash over my eyelid, not going past my crease, blend out the harsh lines.  I then lined my eyes with Dolly Winks Liquid Liner in Dark Brown and winged it out. I also lightly hazed out the same dark cocoa color on the outer thirds of my eyes and used my Holika Holika: Pearly Eye Crayon in the Pink color on the inner corners of the eyes as highlight and extended it into the brown, as well as a highlight for my brow bone.  For my brows, I used Lioele Auto Eyebrow pencil in Gray Black.  For my face, I used Holika Holika's Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream, Maybelline Lumi Highlighting concealer and Milani's Baked blush in Rose D'oro.  I topped it all off with Tart's Micro Clay finishing powder.  For the lips I used Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom, and topped it with Lioele's Blooming Gloss in Flower Pink.  Decided to just blow dry my hair today and wear it natural, instead of curling. ^__^b

  Hope you enjoyed this week's Manicure Monday and the FOTD quickie!  Hoping everyone enjoyed the long Memorial Day weekend last week.  Wishing you all a great rest of your week and share with me below what your current manicure is this week!  Is it perfect for summer or the hot weather?  Is anyone going on vacation this summer?  Until next time, see ya then! ♥ (^.~ )v
