Holiday Nails

hi lovely readers,
It feels like it has been FOREVER since I have last wrote a blog! I've gained even more followers so a big hello to all my new gorgeous ladies!
Here are some photos of my "holiday nails" I had for Christmas Eve/Christmas!
This was pretty easy to you & it's completely up to you on how much glitter you want on your nails :) I purchased both of these OPI's at Target for about $8.99 I believe.

The first photo (above) is called CONGENIALITY IS MY MIDDLE NAME, it's a dark dark fuchsia color - it caught my eye walking down the nail polish section. It's gorgeous & Christmas popped in my mind when I saw it !

IN LOVE! This OPI glitter is called CROWN ME ALREADY, as you can tell in the photo above all the tiny sequence in this nail polish. I thought it would come out clumpy but it's all up to how much you want on your nails. I tried it on my bare nail & with even one coat it came out pretty nice but with two more coats the glitter was so pigmented! I love it, (: Definitely recommend this nail polish!

After I coated my nails with CONGENIALITY IS MY MIDDLE NAME (2 coats) & let them dry a bit...I then slowly put a good amount of CROWN ME ALREADY only on the tip of all my nails..after a few seconds on letting them dry I then slowly got a small/medium amount of glitter on my brush and slowly pushed down the glitter to the middle of my nails. I wanted the "faded" look of glitter on my nails. After that was done, I used my Sally Hansen top coat and put them all over my nails & ta-da! Holiday Nails! I love love love the way they came out, this is the first time I've done this look & so many people were complimenting it. I'm planning a look like this for New Year's!

I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas was truly wonderful! My family && boyfriend made this year the best it has ever been! I'm feeling more blessed than I ever have & I couldn't be more thankful! My room is flooded with presents it's unreal. I hope all of you had an amazing time with your family!

I'll be blogging a lot more because I love love love it & loveee reading all the lovely comments from each and everyone of you!

Hope you all enjoyed this post!

New Revlon Nail Polish. In love

hiiiii lovely bloggers of mine,
I'm in love love love with this gorgeous nail polish, so in love I decided to write a quick post on this lovely new item that has found a new home in my room along with all my other nail polishes.
This Revlon color is in number 940 & is called "Facests of Fuchia" I purchased it at Target a couple of days - it caught my attention and was thrown in my basket.
It is from the Revlon FALL 2011 Collection by Gucci Westman "EXPRESSIONISTS"
It's GORGEOUS, the details in this nail polish stand out so much, it's not your typical clumpy glitter nail polish at all. It has such a fun "holiday" look, as soon as I tried it on..."NEW YEARS" popped in my head :) I've always loved Revlon nail polishes they last quite a long time & with barely any chipping.

This is one of my favorite TOP COATS, Sally Hansen MEGA SHINE. I put this on almost every shade I ever wear on my nails. It makes your nail polish stand out even more & prevents from chipping. Also, if you tend to have a few streaks on your nail polish but don't want to put another coat of nail polish to prevent it from looking clumpy the top coat is good to even your nail polish out. I got this at Target as well, but a few months ago. If you can't find this exact one, ALL of Sally Hansen products are awesome :) A top coat is definitely important for your nails, you nail polish stays on a LOT longer & you always get a nice shine over your nails.

This nail polish is very very pigmented - I used 3 coats only because I wanted it to look extra dark purple :) Above, I took a quick photo just so you can see how well even 1 coat will look on your nails.

Above photo is from the Revlon website - of all the other items in this collection in case you all wanted to check it out just go to :) All the products are so gorgeous. I'm definitely going back to get some of their eyeshadows for this collection, I'm pretty sure they are limited edition items so get them while they still have them.

Hope you all enjoyed this post && hiii to my newest followers! (:

Mini haul.

Finally, a day to blog :)
hii to my newest followers (waves at screen with huge smile) & an adorable thank you for all your sweet emails. I love love love getting random emails on beauty related questions!
Here are a few items I picked up - that I definitely didn't need but definitely wanted. I'm excited for all these items and wanted to share them with you.

China Glaze - 963 Blue Iguana
This color is amazing. So bright & has the perfect shimmer look.

Revlon - 940 Facets of Fuchsia
This reminds me of a fun New Year's color I would love to wear. It has a confetti look to it - it's so pretty!

OPI - Step Right Up!
Light pink nude, gorgeous.

Essie - Imported Bubbly
A lighter nude.
I've been loving* the nude nail look, you can never go wrong with that color.

Finally got my hands on these little babies. The times I have checked they've been sold out or only have the darker shades left over. I got lucky today and picked out these two gorgeous colors. I am beyond impressed on how pigmented these are!
Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter
Cotton Candy - I couldn't believe how well this color came on my lips. These aren't considered "lip sticks" but more of a tinted lip conditioner. But they are so pigmented, I'm in loveee with this color. It's a baby doll pink. Not to bright, yet not to dull. I was so surprised to see how well the color is - it has the illusion you are wearing a lipstick. Definitely one of my favorites. I also love love the packaging, they aren't your original lip butter that comes in a little tin can & the color of the packaging is literally the color you get. I love it.

Creme Brulee - The perfect nude.
I'm always a sucker for the perfect nude shade. This color is so creamy. Your lips feel extremely moisturized yet gives the impression you are wearing a lipstick. love love love.

These were both $7.49.

Philosophy - Salt Water Taffy.
Shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath.
lemon taffy scent. I purchased this at TjMaxx, I love love that store. You can find so many fun treasures. This has the most fresh scent ever. I think it also on sale (woohoo) for only about $8, these are normally about $16 so half of that was a good bargain. There is so much product in this bottle - it will last you a good amount of time.

H20 Tango Mango Body Buffer
For clean & smooth looking skin you always need a good exfoliator. I exfoliate my face at least 2 maybe 3 times a week. I found this body buffer also at TjMaxx and decided to give it a try. I used it a few days ago & I loveeee how you can really feel the texture of this body buffer work.
"A multi-textured scrub sensation that combines nourishing extracts of kiwi, apricot, orange and lemon peel to help soften and energize the skin"
I love how fresh it smells & it leaves your skin feeling extra soft..AND it was only about $6 - hello bargain!

The wonderful Burt's Bee. $5.49
I love these. I don't even need to write about these. They are the best :)
These have a pink grapefruit taste, sweeet.
Vitamins C & E for your lips.

Sonia Kashuk - Concealer Palette - Hidden Agenda 07 $8.99
Two concealer shades, one neutralizer and one translucent powder.
This little package is adorable. I've heard many many many good reviews on this little concealer package so I decided to pick it up & give it a try :)

I wore these new babies all day long today on my Christmas shopping day & they are the most comfortable boots ever! & They were a bargain which makes me love them even more. They were regular $59.99 && on sale for $29.99 (score!) They are perfect with skinny jeans or leggings :) & in the summer you can even pair them with little shorts & a cute tank! They aren't thick at all, which I love about them. I didn't want a pair I can ONLY wear when it's cold & these were the perfect ones! :)

Bright blue flats :)
You can never have enough flats. I don't own a pair of blue flats so I had to have these. I love wearing bright colored flats with an outfit to make them stand out. They are pretty comfy also :)

The end.

My insane makeup collection..that's not even HALF of all my makeup. It continues to grow & I love it. I love that I am able to have all this NOT only for MYSELF but for all my friends and family for ANYTHING they need a make over they know where to come :)

Hope you all enjoyed this haul post. I'm going to have a fun time playing around with all my new items :)

How to - decorate your iPhone case!

Hi gorgeous ladies,
I wanted to share with you all my new iPhone case I decorated & share some fun tips.
This honestly ONLY took about a good 20 mins :) This is what happens when you are in the mood to decorate and your iPhone case is right next to you. I've been meaning to decorate my case since I first purchased it but I hadn't had a chance to sit down and get my materials ready.

I've been getting tons of compliments & tons of "I don't have the patience to do that" or "How long did that take you!!"... 20 mins tops :)
& this all costs less than $8!
First & foremost (& to have your phone unique) look around your room and see what little arts and crafts you may already have. The little camera I have on my case is actually from a Forever21 necklace I've had for quite a long time (it was only $1.50) & since I have quite a few of those small necklaces I decided to use it as an accessory. Also, the eiffel tower is actually an earring! (Also from Forever21 & was only $1.50 as well) But I lost the other earring so I figured it would go great on my phone. The heart button was on the bottom of an old arts & crafts box I had & the little key as well. The only items I purchased were the little "bling" decorations. I purchased them at Michael's - they came in a little pack with purple, white, light pink and bright pink & purple for only about $2.99 & the little decorations at the bottom of my case also purchased at Michael's for about $2.99.
I used super glue for this little project & also cut in half a q-tip to help me place the little jewels on my phone. I 1st placed the camera, eiffel tower, little key, and square decorations on my phone were I wanted to glue them & placed those on my phone 1st. Then all I did was grab my super glue and place it on a good medium size & quickly grabbed the end of a q-tip that I cut in half & slowly started grabbing the jewels and placing them all over my phone. Within 20 mins. I was done & had a brand new phone case.
Also, at the end of this little project I put clear nail polish over everything just to make sure everything stays in place. && ta-da! :)

My make up brush holder

hey gorgeous ladies,
I wanted to share with you all my new make up brush holder :)
I've been on a hunt for a unique way to hold my brushes. I didn't want an original clear glass holder or keep them in my make up zip up bag, something different is always fun. I came across this coffee mug at TjMaxx & thought it would be the PERFECT yet unique place to hold my brushes. The cup was only $2.99, TjMaxx is definitely a place to find hidden treasures! Every single time I walk in to that store it gives me inspiration to want to transform my room. I also love most of their prices are set at bargain prices. I'm loving this mug for my brushes it keeps them neat & gives off a nice look that goes perfect for my room.
Here are a new photos:

On some random exciting news, I'm planning of designing business cards for my freelance makeup. I feel it is finally time to make that next step. All these little things excite me to put myself out there. So many people are given a talent & don't seem to use it. Many people are afraid to put themselves out there. I'm not. I want the world to see my talents & this is everything I love. Make up & photography and sharing beauty tips/reviews. The sweetest thing in the world that melts my heart is how much my boyfriend believes in me, every day he tells me how proud he is for always working so hard at what I love the most. I'm truly grateful for this life & never want to take a single day for granted. Life is too short to be anything but happy.

Hope you all enjoyed this mini post,
Natasha Marie

Do more of what makes you happy, the world needs it..the world needs inspiration to go after what they want..

Put your future in good hands - your own

I love inspiring quotes, they push me to succeed.
I'm so excited for what the future holds.
