Water Marble Nails Gone Wrong

Am I the only person that just discovered water marble nail art? While on youtube of course, I came across a tutorial on how to do designs by putting drops of nail polish in water then dipping your finger into the pattern. Looks and sounds easy right?  I was like owwww I have got to try this! Here is a video so you guys can get a visual:

So yeah I tried it and I followed the steps like they said and yeahhh it didn't look good to me (or anyone else except my Dad lol)  LOOK!

This is a hot ass mess! lol I used China Glaze polish and some colors dissolved well in the water and then again I was being impatient and trying to get a good angle and blah blah. It was pretty messy because I didn't use enough tape to cover my fingers. So I took this water marble off my nails and did something else. Here it is:

Now I like this design! I used China Glaze in white for the base and a the blue was used with the polish with the small brush, I think it's called Stripes or something idk. Will you guys ever try to water marble design? One day I will do it again and be successful!

MAC makeover

Last weekend I went to Dillards to get a new bottle of perfume and started exploring the different makeup counters. I came across the MAC counter and the makeup artist at the counter looked awesome! She had bold blue eye shadow on so I was like oww can you do mine! lol The last time anyone has ever done my makeup was when I was like 12 and I looked dead.

So I sat down and had fun getting a mini makeover. The catch? You have to purchase $50 in products. THAT'S EASY AS PIE to do at MAC. So I did it...Here is what I looked like after my makeover lol ***for a closer view click the pictures***

I really don't like the caked on look and to me it looks like too much. I suppose it's because I'm not into loud makeup. I loved the eye shadow she used on my eyes though and the lip gloss. Here are the items I ended up buying that she used.

The foundation is NW45, the Paint Pot is Groundwork, and the Lustreglass is Beaux. Now today I was a little scared to used the foundation because I didn't want to look like a cake again lol But the color is actually THE BUSINESS on me lol. And the Paint Pot really made my eye shadow POP! I really enjoyed my makeover. Here is my look today.

It evened out my skin tone and looks more natural. Maybe the next time I go get something done I'll do something BOLD! What do you guys think?

New shoes!

I went to the mall today and FINALLY bought the Blue Suede Jessica Simpson platforms :) yayyy! I know I'm late and everybody seems to have a blue suede shoe but dang it I got them now! I'm now looking for a nice chocolate brown wedge sandal but they are just so hard to find! Okay tell me what you guys think!

I think I'm like 6'0 in these shoes :) Now I need to figure out what I'm going to wear with them. Any suggestions?
