A thoroughly modern "retro-scent": Dejarose. (Repromote from DejaRose)

From this collection I want Mutiny Pigment FOR SURE! This came out with the Naughty Nauticals collection last summer and I didn't buy it full size, and I regret it. It is the PRETTIEST shimmery turquoise, and one of my favorite blues ever! I also want the gel blush and at least one of the see thru lip colors, probably "Loving Touch". 

I am excited about these collections and hope you guys are too!! Let me know what you end up getting!

Hot Pink Tipped Nails

So Summer is coming up, and with that comes bright nail polish! I have officially put away my favorite dark polishes like Opi's Lincoln Park After Dark in favor of bright pinks, corals, and tangerines. Today I am wearing Opi's Strawberry Margarita and China Glaze's Temptation Carnation. 

First apply a clear base coat, I use one from Sally Hanson. 
Then apply a hot pink color to the tips. I used Opi's Strawberry Margarita but you can use whatever you have laying around! I did this free-handed, I just took my time and painted the tips (it didn't take more than 20 seconds a nail). 
Then apply a light pink shimmery color all over the nail. I used China Glaze's Temptation Carnation. The lighter and sheerer your color is the best this is going to work. You don't want to distort the hot pink too much. 
I finished by adding a clear top coat. You can use this technique with any two colors you want! It's a easy way to look summery :)

Forgive the low quality picture, my camera broke and this is off my computer's webcam (aka - not good). I am going to be buying a new camera soon so I can take better quality pictures!
