NOTD and Makeup

I decided to water marble my nails today. Tip: Don't water marble your nails with a playful kitten in the room. He kept messing me up by suprise attacking my feet and nibbling at them...he's so cute though.



OMG, guess what??? I wore lipstick today. I'm so afraid of lipstick. I normally just wear gloss with or without a little color because my top lip is significantly darker than my bottom lip so it ends up looking like I'm wearing two different shades. Today I learned you can put foundation or concealer on your lips before applying the lipstick and I loved the end result. I'm sooooo about to buy fifty eleven lipsticks...nobody tell my hubby.

Revlon ColorStay Foundation Caramel
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Milk
Coastal Scents 88 Palette
Maybelline Stiletto Liquid Eyeliner Blackest Black
Loreal Collagen Mascara Black
Wet n Wild Lipstick 521A



Guess what else??? My stuff from the NYX Sale (ends 5/3) arrived today. I'm sooooooo ecstatic. So you want to see what I got right???? :)

I absolutely love your mani!! and awww, your kitten is SO CUTE!! Glad you're taking pictures - it is crazy how fast they turn into cats :)

Thanks for catching that Susie...I did mean nail polish...lol.

Thanks Brooke! Water Marbling is my favorite type of maicure...I just don't like the time it takes.

I love the temperment of kittens. They're so playful and funny. As cats they can be so boring...lol.

Great haul and gorgeous mani! I've been meaning to try it, but I've been lazy :( I just get too lazy knowing that I have to take it all off for class. I only get to wear polish 5 days out of the week and it doesn't seem worth it for me.

You with lipstick is a beautiful thing! And your skin looks amazing :)

PS. The pic of all the lashes made me gasp out loud!

Your mani is so pretty, I would love to see a tutorial post... and your hair color is gorgeous girl!

SailorWifey said...

Hey Steph! Long time no chit chat. Five days is a lot of days to rock a cute mani...get out the rut girl.

Thanks!

I had to have those lashes...this will be my first time playing with them.

Thanks Mz. More...I actually have a water marble tutorial on youtube, but I need to make a better one. I'm still not use to making tutorials especially when doing nails.

This post made me LOL..the kitten and the poor hubby who's wife will have "fifty eleven" lipsticks.. to cute!!

I love watermarbling but goodness the amount of time it takes is a pain. Yours looks great. What polishes have you had the most success with when water marbling? I like to use cheapies beacuse you do end up using quite a bit of polish.

SailorWifey said...

Thanks!

I don't discriminate on the polish...LOL. Seriously though, many nail polish fanatics have hundreds of polishes sitting around and haven't even swatched them all. I love seeing a half empty bottle of polish because I know the money I spend isn't being wasted.

I love this post! It made me laugh out loud too about the lipsticks! Oh and I love the concealer lip trick. I am a very pale girl, so I have the opposite problem from what you have, but it still works wonders at getting the lipstick to stay put and look even, and brightens the color significantly! I learned that one back in my pageant days and have been doing it since! Oh and as far as putting the lashes on yourself: you obviously have a steady hand since you can do your own nails so beautifully, so I doubt you will have any trouble at all! Just remember to trim them to fit before you apply the glue or you will have a big nasty mess!!!!

SailorWifey said...

Thanks! You're going to have to share the rest of the secrets you have from being in pageants.

It's so cool that you're out here in Lemoore too. :)

I love ur nails. I want to try doing this but I'm scared it won't come out right.

SailorWifey said...

For me the key is not to expect anything and just go with what comes up. Some people try to maek specific designs and want each finger just so, but that just too stressful in my opinion. Try it...I'd love to see pics
