Frosted Plastic Flamingos

Good morning lovelies!

I created another mani using Hehe006, Lady Queen sent it to me to test and review a while back. I love subtle floral designs like this, although I think I might have gone too subtle this time around, my glitter seems to have swallowed the stamping.
These started with a base of Spoiled Plastic Flamingo, then a thin coat of Blackheart Beauty Hot Pink Black Splatter. The stamping is in OPI French Quarter For Your Thoughts and the matte finish was done with Pure Ice Frost Finish.

This is one of my favorite Aiyoohehe plates, here is it's link. If you want to check out Lady Queen Beauty's site, click here! And here's a code just for you that's good for 15% off order: MWLC15

Que Bella Face Mask Haul & Review

Good morning lovelies!

I've been using these face masks over the past week, and I'm here to tell you what I think of them, and how my skin is feeling after all this pampering. Que Bella offered to send me some to test and review, and they were very generous!

First up is the Pearl Powder Exfoliating Mask, I've actually used this one twice since there was enough for two uses in the pouch. It's a clear jelly-like mask with pearl powder as the exfoliator. The exfoliator beads are on the larger side, and a bit far and in between so I had to chase them around a bit to get a good scrub. Before rinsing off, I let the mask sit for 10 mins like the packaging recommends, and then washed it off. 
It's a gentle scrub and left my skin feeling moisturized and soft, it has a very light scent as well.

This is one of my favorites so far, the Revitalising Overnight Face Mask.
This has a thinner gel consistency, and I was also able to get two uses out of the one packet. I put it on about an hour before bed and watched netflix while giving it a chance to dry, I rinsed it off in the morning. It didn't quite give the wow results I was expecting since I kept it on so long, but it did definitely moisturize and give a boost to my skin and also help with my ongoing dry skin battle. I really liked the smell of this, it has a nice soapy clean scent.

Last but not least I tried out the Moisturizing Gel Eye Masks, one pouch comes with three sets!
The patches come in individual foil packets, and you peel the gel off from their plastic, then apply them sticky side down to your under eye area. I was surprised by how big they are, I love how much area they cover! I kept them on about 20 mins, peeled them off and rubbed in the leftover mask serum. My eyes have been feeling irritated for some reason, so these were a lovely pick me up.

Keep an eye out for my next Que Bella post, I still have more masks to test for you lovelies!

Swatch Sunday: Color Club Chelsea Girl

Good morning lovelies!

I was so surprised when I realized I hadn't done a swatch post for this polish yet, it's one of my absolute favorites from Color Club!
This is Color Club Chelsea Girl, it's a bright cobalt blue creme that's super opaque and basically just a dream in a bottle.
If you're careful during application this can be a one coater, but I always like the smooth things out with a second. Shown here is two coats with shiny topcoat, but this polish has a great au naturel shine. Usually super pigmented polishes like this stain my nails horribly, but I didn't even get a slight tint on my nails with this! Sometimes I can just tell when a polish is going to stain, and for some reason this one was setting off warning bells for me. But I worried for not!

Henna with a mani to match!

I went the traditional route with my henna

Good morning lovelies!

I got to playing around with henna last Saturday while staying over at a friend's for the weekend, and I was surprised by how many designs I was able to make with just one cone, if you haven't had the chance to try henna, you really should, it's loads of fun! I stamped some nails to go with my newly decorated hands, and I'm very happy with how they turned out~
These nails started with a base of Rimmel London 60 Seconds Caramel Cupcake, and I stamped them with OPI Alpine Snow & BP-L008. 

my friend M requested the APH logo and a wolf

my supernatural obsessed friend Finn  went with the anti possession symbol and mark of cain from the show

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review

Good morning lovelies!

I'm always on the lookout for the best and brightest methods of makeup removal, and it seems like everyone in the beauty blogosphere has been raving about micellar water products lately. My friend actually bought me this for me after telling me how much she loved it for taking off makeup at the end of the day, so I was very excited to try this out for myself. I actually haven't been wearing any makeup at all for the last month, so I made sure to thoroughly test this out by going heavier than usual with my foundation and other makeup products.
I was able to remove all of my makeup with one cotton round, but it didn't leave my skin feeling exactly squeaky clean. If you're just looking for something to remove the brunt of your makeup before using a face mask or something of that sort, this would work for you, but it isn't that effective if you want to use one cleanser and be done with it. It took off my mascara and eyeliner after a bit of rubbing so I'm thinking it wouldn't do that well with removing waterproof makeup. The bottle cost around 9 dollars, and since I only need a tiny bit of the "water" for each use, it will last me quite a long time. This will be really nice for when I'm traveling or camping and I'm not able to wash my face but still want to wear a bit of makeup, because I always hate ending the day with grubby feeling skin from badly removed makeup. So this will definitely be great to chuck into my beauty bag for that situation!
