NAILS OF THE DAY: EASTER BUNNY

Hello guys, how are you all doing on this lovely Tuesday? Do you have any fun plans for Easter? Simon and I are spending our Easter with family and friends. We are also thinking about taking a day trip to Sweden for some snowmobile fun and maybe a little barbecuing in the sun. We'll see what we end up doing, we haven't made up our minds just yet!

Anyway, I have an Easter manicure to share with you guys today. I received these adorable nail art water decal stickers in the mail from Born Pretty Store. I wanted to create a cute Easter manicure using the stickers, and this is the final look that I came up with. I kept the design quite simple, because I didn't want to go totally overboard with the bunnies. But I still wanted to corporate the design and some lovely pastel shades into the look! :-) 

I like how this look turned out. It's not a difficult look to create either, which is awesome if your not good at creating your own nail art designs. I love playing around with nail stickers, because there are so many cute and cool designs and patterns to choose from. You can find the rabbit stickers, HERE.

Would you like to see a nail art water decal tutorial? Let me know in the comments down below and I will make that happen for you! :-)

What do you think about my Easter manicure? Have you played around with nail art water decal stickers before? What do you think about them? Do you like them? :-) Love, Christine♥

INGLOT COSMETICS NAIL ENAMEL IN 055 & 992: REVIEW, PHOTOS & SWATCHES

♥ Inglot Cosmetics Nail Enamel in 055 & 992.

Today, I have two pretty nail polishes from the brand Inglot Cosmetics to share with you. They are both from their nail enamel range, which ranges from shimmers and creams to metallics and mattes. Let's go on and jump right into the review, shall we? :-)

 ♥ Inglot Cosmetics Nail Enamel in 055. 

Inglot Cosmetics Nail Enamel in 055 (15 ml/0.51 US fl.oz.) is a champagne beige with a pearly finish. It's very easy to apply, but it's a bit sheer on the first coat, so it needs at least three coats to look completely opaque on my nails.

It's a really beautiful shade, but I'm not digging the pearly finish. I don't know why, but I have never been a big fan off that specific finish. What do you guys think? Are you a fan? You can still see a little bit off my natural nails peeking through the nail polish after three coats. I think I would love it even more if it had a creamy finish. Nonetheless, it's still a gorgeous shade! :-) 

 ♥ Inglot Cosmetics Nail Enamel in 992. 

Inglot Cosmetics Nail Enamel in 992 (15 ml/0.51 US fl.oz.) is a beautiful blurple with a shimmery finish. It's very smooth and easy to apply. It didn't go on sheer or streaky on my nails, which is awesome. The shimmer is quite fine, but you can definitely tell that it's there. It dries quickly and it's fully opaque in three coats.

I have always been a sucker for blurple nail polishes and this one is definitely a big winner in my book. It's my favorite shade out off the two nail polishes from Inglot, it's really gorgeous! :-) 

 ♥ Inglot Cosmetics Nail Enamel in 055 & 992. 

Overall, I'm very pleased with both off these nail polishes. I really like how easy and smooth they are to apply, how glossy they are and how they look on the nails. The consistency off the two nail polishes is quite thin. I prefer when nail polishes have a more thinner consistency, because I find them to be a lot easier to work with. The drying time is quite good, which is always a huge plus in my book. If you haven't checked out this range off nail polishes from Inglot Cosmetics, you should definitely look into it. There are a bunch off really gorgeous shades and they are quite affordable as well! :-) 

♥ Inglot Cosmetics Nail Enamel in 055 & 992.

♥ You like shimmery/pearly finishes.
♥ You like cute packaging.
♥ You like quick drying nail polishes.

You might not like this product if:
♥ You're not a big fan off the thin consistency.

MY MONTHLY FAVORITES: MARCH 2014

♥ Monthly Favorites: March 2014. 

How are you guys doing on this lovely Thursday? Hope that you are having an awesome day so far. It's time for a brand new monthly favorites post. I feel like I just posted my February favorites, time flies when you are having fun, huh? So without any further ado, let's jump right into the products that I have been loving for the month off March! :-)

 ♥ MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle. 

The MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle is an oldie but a goodie. It's my favorite and most used highlighter in my entire makeup collection, and it's been featured in many off my monthly favorites posts.

I have had Soft and Gentle for a couple off years now, and you can barely see that it's been used. It's definitely not the most affordable highlighter on the beauty market. It's going to last a very long time, so to me it's so worth the money. I highly recommend that you check it out, I think you are going to love it as much as I do! :-) 

 ♥ Wet n Wild Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette in Vanity. 

I have re-discovered my love for the Wet n Wild Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette in Vanity. The eyeshadows are nicely pigmented, soft and very smooth to the touch. They are not too powdery, so they don't have a lot off fallout to them. I'm a neutral eyeshadow kind off girl, so this palette is right up my alley. It's such a great, travel friendly, affordable little palette which have a nice selection off neutral shades.

I believe that this palette has been discontinued by the brand, but you can still find it on eBay, HERE! :-) 

 ♥ Physicians Formula PH Matchmaker PH Powered Lip Gloss in Light Pink. 

You might have seen this lip gloss featured in my most recent beauty swap post. The lovely Nancy-Lee from fashionCHICsta sent it to me, and I'm so happy that she included it in my package. It's one off those lip glosses that senses the pH level of your skin and adjusts to create the perfect lip color for you. It has a little mirror on the side, which can be very handy if you are on the go. It also lights up, which I think is totally awesome! :-)

I have already fallen in love with it. I hardly ever wear lip gloss, but this one is definitely a keeper. It gives my lips the prettiest shade off pink. I can see why it's one off Nancy-Lee's favorites, it's gorgeous. You can check out my beauty swap post HERE! :-) 

 ♥ Wet n Wild Coloricon Blush in Pearlescent Pink. 

The Wet n Wild Coloricon Blush in Pearlescent Pink has been another big favorite off mine during the month off March. It's nicely pigmented and it looks very pretty and natural on the skin. It gives the cheeks a healthy glow, which makes it a great blush for Spring and Summer! :-) 

 ♥ LUSH Cosmetics Handy Gurugu Hand Cream.

♥ LUSH Cosmetics Handy Gurugu Hand Cream.

The Handy Gurugu Hand Cream by LUSH Cosmetics have been a total lifesaver for me during the past few months. My hands have been so dry and sore due to the cold weather. I used to have a couple off dry patches on my hands, but thanks to this hand cream they are now completely gone. It keeps my hands nicely hydrated thoughout the day. I love using it at night before I go to bed, my hands feel incredible soft and smooth the next day. It has a very delightful, clean and fresh scent which I'm totally obsessed with. I just can't get enough off it! :-) 

♥ Family Guy. Photo source, HERE

A non-beauty favorite for the month off March has been Family Guy. If you are not familiar with the show, it's about a dysfunctional family who strive to cope with everyday life as they are thrown from one crazy scenario to another. I know some people won't like it and the humor that comes with it, but I personally love it. I think it's such a fun show, it never fails to make me laugh. Do you watch Family Guy? Who is your favorite character on the show? I like Peter, Glenn Quagmire, Herbert and Stewie! :-)

CH NAIL NAIL LACQUERS: REVIEW, PHOTOS & SWATCHES

Today I have three nail polishes from a brand called CH Nail to share with you. The CH Nail Nail Lacquers come in a bunch off really fun and bright shades, which are available at Born Pretty Store for $4.99 each. They are quite affordable compared to some other nail polish brands out there, but are they worth picking up? Read more to find out what I think about them! :-)

 ♥ CH Nail Nail Lacquers in #09, #13 & #14. 

 ♥ CH Nail Nail Lacquers in #09, #13 & #14. 

 ♥ CH Nail Nail Lacquer in #09.  

CH Nail Nail Lacquer in #09 ($4.99 for 15ml/0.5 fl.oz.) is a pretty neon green. It's quite sheer, so you definitely need to apply a couple off extra coats for it to look somewhat similar to how it looks in the bottle. It didn't go on looking streaky or patchy on my nails though, which is always a good thing. It's opaque in three coats.

It looks a bit darker in the bottle than how it looks on the nails, so be aware off that if you are thinking about picking up a bottle for yourself. It's a very cool, fun and fresh color for Spring and Summer! :-) 

 ♥ CH Nail Nail Lacquer in #13. 

CH Nail Nail Lacquer in #13 ($4.99 for 15ml/0.5 fl.oz.) is a pastel peach with a creamy finish. It's a little sheer and quite streaky, which made it a little difficult to work with. The consistency is quite thick, so make sure to apply thin coats or else it can look a bit thick and goopy on the nails. It's fully opaque in three coats.

Out off all three nail polishes here, this was the most difficult one to work with. Nonetheless it's still a very pretty shade, which makes the nails look very fresh and clean! :-) 

♥ CH Nail Nail Lacquer in #14.

CH Nail Nail Lacquer in #14 ($4.99 for 15ml/0.5 fl.oz.) is a neon pink with a creamy finish. I didn't have any issues with this shade at all. It's quite easy to work with and it's the most opaque nail polish here with only two coats.

If I could only recommend just one shade here, it would have to be this one. It's such a gorgeous pink, which is going to look so cute on the nails and on the toes for Summer. I have a feeling that I will be reaching for this one a lot! :-) 

♥ CH Nail Nail Lacquers in #09, #13 & #14. 

Overall, there are definitely some really cute and fun shades in this range off nail polishes from CH Nail. I have always been a big fan off bright nail polishes for Spring and Summer, I love how they look on the nails and how they just brighten up any outfit and makes it pop.

The CH NAIL Nail Lacquers are not the most quick drying nail polishes, but I didn't find them to be too crazy. It helps a lot if you apply a quick drying top coat afterwards. The cool thing about these is that they actually glow in the dark. How fun is that? I have never owned or tried out a glow in the dark nail polish before, so that's pretty fun! :-)

You might like this product if:
You like pastels and neons.
You like or are interested in trying out a glow in the dark nail polish.
You like cute packaging.

You might not like this product if:
You are looking for a quick drying nail polish.
You're not a big fan off bright shades. 

Where to buy?
The CH Nail Nail Lacquers is available at Born Pretty Store for $4.99 each. Neon green #09, HERE, Pastel peach #13, HERE & Neon Pink #14, HERE. Use code: GHYQ10 and get 10% off your order.
