Nail Polishness :Sassy Nail Art Polishes

I love creating nail designs and for that I need nail polishes intended for detailed designs. Today I'm going to share with you guys the polishes I use to help make achieve patterns, prints, line and dots. These are very affordable and with some practice they are quite easy to manipulate.

SASSY NAIL ART POLISHES
Price: Php 36.00 ( $ 0.88)
Available in: Watsons or SM Department Store

 When you twist the top off it reveals a very thin and long brush also know as a Stripper.

The very tip of this nail art polish has a very small opening so that very little polish comes out and this makes it perfect for dotting, no need to use a dotting tool!

One coat of this polish is quite good but the colors are not as vibrant or opaque as I want them to be.

I often use two coats to get the opacity I want.

I absolutely love Sassy Nail Art Polishes and I intend to get more colors in the future. So if you wanna try making your own nail designs this product will come handy for you :D

Thank you for reading!
Take care!

Sincerely

ELF 48 Piece Little Black Beauty Book

If you travel, do makeup gigs or maybe you just have to bring your makeup with you somewhere a large palette can be a pain in the butt! and a pain to carry in your bag! So when I saw this ELF palette sitting on the display I stared at it for a couple of seconds mesmerized by its cute and compact packaging.

 Price : Php 399.75 ($9.82)
Purchased at: SM City Cebu Dept. Store
Includes:
48 Cool eyeshadows
Dual ended eyeshadow applicator
Mirror

I wanted this particular edition because of the cool colors, and I couldn't get the warm edition with neutral colors because they were out of stock but its okay because I have more than enough neutral eyeshadows.


You can see how compact it is because I can easily hold it with my hand.

Swatches of random shadows, unfortunately some are not as pigmented as the others.

PROS:
-Has a mix of glittery,matte and satin finish shadows
-Affordable = Php 399.75 ($9.82)
-Has a good variety of colors
-Very cute and compact
-Sturdy packaging

CONS:
- Not all shadows are as pigmented as the others

Overall i really like this palette and I recommend it to anyone who carries makeup around,if you wanna play around with a bunch of colors to choose from or just to anyone who just loves makeup!

Thank you for reading!
Take care!


With much love,
Steph-G
