This is sort of a makeup post, but not really.

Well I have had another one of those weeks where I think I updated recently, but the reality was it's been a week. Anyway, let's get down to business. So I only started really wearing makeup in January. Before that I would only wear it if I HAD to. Now I wear it pretty much any time I leave the house. Now I'm no pro, but I think I'm decent, but I do feel a little iffy when I go into cosmetic stores. I always think they see my makeup and think "Wow, who invited Baba Yaga?". I mean I'm sure they don't say that but if there is anyp lace I feel insecure about my skills it's in a cosmetic store. The one place I feel the most awkward is Sephora, because I feel like everyone there is on point. Well a couple days ago I went in with some of my cousins and when we were checking out the lady behind the counter asked me about my makeup look, because she loved it! This is a first for me, having someone at Sephora take an interest in what I had on. It made me feel fantastic!

What does that all have to do with the manicure? Well since I have been getting into makeup I have been lurking a lot of makeup accounts. Some of these artists are soooooooo creative and I love looking at their work. Even though they sometimes do crazy stuff that I could never do on my own face, I can still use it and translate it to my nails. Like today, I have this manicure inspired by makeup artist Alene Filippova. This look caught my eye immediately when I scrolled past. I just had to put it on my nails :)
 For my nails I started off with a black base, then I top coated it. I then added tape down the centre, and with a fan brush, brushed on the gold(Which is a nameless Dior). Once I removed the tape I top coated it again, put another strip of tape down the centre, and with the fan brush added the red(Revlon Red Carpet). Finally I top coated the whole thing. I did it with and without matte topcoat. I think I like it better shiny as the matte dulled the red.



So tell me. Do you like the makeup? What are some of your favourite products?
