Baby Pink Valentines Day Nails with Konads + Fimo Nail art

These nails are just perfect for Valentines day coming up! Before applying the nail polish, I sliced up two adorable heart pieces to accent my ring finger nails!

Here's my stash of fimo nail art rods! they're too cute!

I started off with Nail Trek Maintenance + to keep my nails strong and healthy!
A layer of seche clear to make a smooth base for my pink polish.
I applied two coats of Revlon "Sweet tart" to my nails, which is a coincident since it's my baybe's fav candy of all time lol
My Konads set up
I used Konads plate m73 (floral print to the right)
After applying the konads nail art stamp and my two heart slices to my ring finger nails, I put a thick coat of Seche Vite Top coat to prevent my nails from chipping and keep my heart slices in place!

TA DAA! :) perfect pretty pink nails for valentines day!

Smash Box Eye Wish Pallete 2009 Holiday Collection

I got a PACKAGE today in the mail! yayy I love getting packages :). I've recently, well maybe for a couple months now, been obsessed with this website
Unfortunately, you have to be a member to see the stuff their selling, but it's not to hard to become one. This is my personal invitation link, if ya'll are interested. So basically, every day they have a different sale on discounted things like clothes, make up, home stuffs, and there's things for women, men and kids! The only thing I've ever had my eyes on is the make up. I've previously ordered things from urban decay, pop beauty, and most recently SMASHBOX! So, I was really excited when I saw that there was going to be a sale on smashbox stuff, but then when it came it was only like 50% ish off, but there was this one palette that really really caught my eye! It's called the "Eye Wish Palette", and I believe it came out in the 2009 holiday colllection.

Isn't the packaging adorable! It's like a hot metallic pink and cushion-y on top.

When you open it up, there's a nice mirror, 12 eyeshadows, 4 cream eye liners, eye primer, and a neat look book!

top - bare skin
bottom - with urban decay primer potion

Initially, when I first saw this online, I fell in love! Unfortunately, I bought it without doing research since it well selling out fast, and by fast I mean like within the hour :(. After looking up reviews on makeup alley and swatching it out myself, I sorta regret buying it, but it's not so bad with udpp. The shimmery colors show up really well, but the colors that are supposed to be darker are sorta lacking in pigmentation. I haven't actually used it in a look yet, but when I do, I'll get back to ya'll with how I'm feeling! for now this gets a B+!
