Hi everyone! Kind of a late in the day post, I know. But I wanted to share with you my nails that I wore today for Henry’s baptism and my makeup. Life update at the end of this post!
I wanted something delicate since my outfit was kind of loud. LOL. I started with 3 coats of Sinful Colors Just Deserts from the Stoned Crystal Shimmer collection. It is slightly more pink in real life. (I’m really hoping to get swatches done of this collection this week, btw.) Then I added an iridescent glitter stud to the nails with Just Deserts on them.
On my ring finger and thumb, I used 2 coats of Femme Fatale Cosmetics Hourglass, which was a Color4Nails exclusive polish.
Hourglass has a really gorgeous green-gold shimmer. Why have I not worn this since I bought it last year?? Who knows! LOL
I went dress shopping last night to find an outfit and I found a dress I really loved (and that I knew would annoy my husband, haha! 😛 ). Luckily JcPenney’s was having a huge clearance sale so I picked up 2 dresses for a good price! Plus the dress I bought really made me feel good about my body – which is kind of needed, tbh. This postpartum period where I can’t work out & I’m eating everything in sight (because wow, breastfeeding makes this girl H-U-N-G-R-Y!) is a hard time to go through.
I wanted to keep my makeup fairly neutral because I wanted to try out this lippie I bought from CVS – it’s NYX Cosmetics Cherry Skies. It’s a bit more red-pink toned in person, which is disappointing. I wanted a strong red matte lipstick when I picked this up.
I used the Lorac Princess eyeshadow palette and Urban Decay Half Baked. I use the Princess palette quite a bit because even though it’s only a 4 shadow pan, it’s really flattering with my coloring.
I need to do a review on the blush I’m wearing that I picked up from memebox [affiliate link]. It’s made by Hope Girl, and it’s called 3D Powder Blusher in 02 Coral Stone. It’s in a strange applicator but I love the flush it gives me.
The weekend was kind of a stressful one – my eldest boy got sick and was projectile vomiting last night & today. Oooh boy, so fun. My husband has to clean up because I smell puke and I start puking. And gee that doesn’t sound fun. LOL. Plus my toddler was super cranky this morning and my dad almost had a diabetic low. It’s like a recipe for me to have an anxiety attack but thankfully that was avoided. Alright, so that’s it for me – what’s new with you?
