Stiletto Nails- Hot or Not?

Have you seen them on your favourite celebrities such as Rihanna, Adele, Lady Gaga or Beyonce?

I have a love/hate relationship with them.
They're very unique but kinda scary. Definitely not corporate office friendly (in my opinion).
Imagine the stares I would get if I was conducting a presentation with those bad boys. Oh man!
Since I'm about to cut my nails off, so I decided to play around with the trend a bit.

I should have taken pictures of my process but it was sooooo basic.
All I did was take a nail file and file the edges of my nails until they came to a point.
I know I didn't get the claw look but you get the point(pun intended).

Are Stiletto Nails- Hot or Not?

Nail of the day: BarryM Nail Paint in Indigo

A few weeks ago I purchased BarryM Nail Paint in Indigo from a blog sale! I couldn't wait to try it out, so I applied two coats.
I love how this color looks on my skin tone! I think this would look good with a white crackle polish on top :)

Lately I have been doing my nails every week in different colors and designs inspired by my favorite nail bloggers. I will keep posting them as their done.

Nail of the day: BarryM Nail Effects take 2

I had to upgrade my BarryM mani. I decided to go with a play on spring which is taking forever to show it's self! I used two random bright polishes in my dash. The fuchsia is Funky Nails in Miss.Robinson.  The blue is the LA Color matte polish in matte turquoise.. I'm not feeling it.. chips way too fast!
I'm sorry I didn't clean the edges
I added CND supershiny as a top coat. I like it shiny!

Do you like the two tone mani?

Nail Of the day: BarryM Instant Nail Effects

I remember when this product first came out UK bloggers were going crazy! It sold out in stores immediately. As a Canadian blogger I was super jealous that I couldnt get a hold of it here. Now I finally got a bottle and I'm in love!!!!

I layered it over a robin egg blue nail polish. This picture was taken after 5 days of wear!!!

You have to have a certain confidence when wearing this polish because people will stare LOL!
This polish dries to a matte finish but I decided to put two coats of a clear polish to seal it in. I can't believe how long it lasted.
How do you feel about BarryM Instant Nail Effects Nail polish?

FOTD using Barry M Cosmetics!

This is a simple look for my movie date to see Black Swan. Since I have a lot of Barry M goodies, I decided to test some of it out. Girls..everything I used was soo pigmented! Products like these just make you fall in love with makeup all over. Haha! I know it's weird but my "junkies" exactly what I mean.

Here is what I used:
  •  Barry M Dazzle Dust in 44 (Bronze)
  • Barry M Lip Lacquer Pencil Crayon 2 (Cherry Red)
  • Barry M 3 N 1 Mascara
 I need to spotlight the Dazzle Dust & Lip Lacquer because there GORGEOUS. Please click the pictures to see these in HD.
I generally never touch a lipstick with sparkles because they look "gritty'...but the lacquers are smooth & glossy. I want every color!

What do you think of the look?

As most of you can see from several Canadian Bloggers BarryM may be coming to Canada. So support the moment and Like this BarryM page!

BarryM Nail Paints in Red Glitter & Bright Pink Swatches

As you all know I love nail polishes! It doesn't matter whether its a matte, cream or glitter.. I must to have them all. I have to show you all the two I recently received from Barry M!

 Bright Pink (279)  & Red Glitter (150)
Choose from over 50 different shades, Covering the whole colour spectrum-from pure white to decadent red. There are metallic pearls, mattes and shimmering finishes to suit every mood and taste. All Nail Paints are in a quick-drying base suitable for natural or acrylic nails.
Bright Pink has a cream finish. In my opinion it looks more of a bubblegum pink than a bright pink. I only needed two coats to get even coverage, which is good because it dried quickly.

Red Glitter is made up of fine glitters. This glitter can be worn alone or with a solid polish underneath.
Love it!

Flash vs. No Flash 

I definitely need more of these!
Which color is your favorite?
