Baptism Nails and makeup of the day

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!

Sinful Colors Stoned Crystal Shimmer Just Deserts, Femme Fatale Cosmetics Hourglass | Be Happy And Buy Polish

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.  Continue reading


December Faves #JanuaryBeauty

Good afternoon, my wonderful readers. I hope you enjoyed my blogging resolutions post yesterday, and I thank you for your feedback. I truly appreciate you, the reader, whether you comment or not.

Okay, today’s prompt for #JanuaryBeauty is December Faves. I thought I’d go through my makeup and my polishes and see what I really liked for December.

Sephora Formula X Intergalactic bottle shot | Be Happy And Buy Polish

First up is nail polish, because, umm, this is a mainly a polish blog. 😛 This is Sephora Formula X Intergalactic, a textured polish. You’ll be seeing a swatch of this soon, as well as a nail art look with it.

Lorac Princess Palette | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Next up is Lorac’s Princess Palette (prize). I received the entire Lorac Royal Collection as a prize won from Hey Sabrina Faith. (Say hello to my elbows! LOL) While I used all of them a lot, I really kept going back to the Princess Palette.

Glamour Doll Eyes Dirty 30 | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Glamour Doll Eyes is one of my favorite places to pick up stunning eyeshadows, and I used a lot of GDE shadows in December! Dirty 30 is one of my favorites that I go back to over and over.

Milani Liquid Eye 05 Brown | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Milani Liquid Eye in 05 Brown is a new-to-me eyeliner but I found myself reaching for it over and over again in December.

Buxom mascara Blackest Black | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I have a love/hate relationship with this next product: Buxom mascara. Sometimes I like it and it looks great; sometimes I hate it because it flakes like mad on me! I (obviously) liked it a lot in December though.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Sultry | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Lastly is one of my favorite lippies that I reach for all the time, no matter what. It’s Revlon’s ColorBurst Matte Balm in Sultry. It’s a matte (duh) red but warm pink undertone, and it totally gives off a retro vibe when I wear it, and I can’t get enough of it. Here’s a swatch of it on the back of my hand:

Well, there’s all my faves from December! What do you think, would you pick up any of these, or have you?
