My Life, The Retail Diaries

The Retail Diaries: Orientation

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I was super busy yesterday packing up a few of my things after orientation as well as having lunch with my boyfriend, picking up my younger brother from school, and making dinner. In there somewhere, I also caught up on all of my Youtube videos and watched Keeping Up With The Kardashions which is my new guilty pleasure show to watch when I want to forget about my own family drama. More about that in my Entertainment Weekly post. Any who, I had my orientation yesterday. I got up an hour and a half early and had my coffee. I also checked my email on my kindle fire as I washed my face for the day. I got dressed, had cereal for breakfast, and put on my makeup. If anyone wants me to do the FOTD posts, I will do one a week, only if it is requested though. I arrived at 8 o’clock only to be told that it starts at 8:30, so I waited for an hour and twenty minutes in the employee lounge. Yes, it was terrible and I texted my best friend while waiting, only to discover that the guy I was to do orientation with had arrived early and needed help with his application. I also got paid for the three hours that I was there, which is an added bonus. Once I was called into the office, we both watched the 4 videos that we had to load into the dvr and watch. There was one video on sexual harassment and discrimination and business conduct with activity questions on the dvd, one on how to set up the store for those that have disabilities and how to help them with activity questions on the dvd, another one on the core values of the store, and the last one was on the importance on connecting with the customers with the store motto WANT: Welcome/Assist/’N/Thank. After the videos, we had to fill out some paperwork and were told what the dress code is for the store: navy blue collared shirts with black pants and black shoes. I have a 15 hour week schedule up ahead and I was told that I would be filling out more paperwork and would b doing online learning in the office. I am so happy that I get paid for this! So, for the three days that I work it is a 5 hour work day. I will be working Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 1 to 5pm and I don’t have to be in dress code. I am super excited!! Due to the late time, the retail posts might not be up until the weekend. I will try to squeeze them into the mornings though. So, I have 4 posts planned for next week, but there is a possibility for more, especially if you guys leave requests!! Until the next post.

With Love,

Midnight Velvet Haul

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I ordered a haul from Midnight Velvet for my birthday! My father got a line of credit and he said that I could get some things for my twenty-first birthday. I never got any gifts for my birthday, besides from my besties. So, I was super excited to have some money to spend! What I got was really expensive, but keep in mind that it was my twenty-first and also, my dad will only have to pay a minimum of 25 dollars a month. I also told him that I would pay for half, so technically. It was not that expensive, but it is my most expensive haul in one place. Without further chitchat, here is the breakdown of what I received last Friday and Saturday. Yes, they came in two different boxes. No clue why they couldn’t have sent it all in a bigger box.


Zebra box

Isn’t this box cute?! It is zebra striped! I love that this company made their delivery boxes so personal and customized. However, the other box I received was in plain brown packaging. It was a bit of a disappointment, but at least, I got one pretty box to pack my stuff in when I move. I should be moving before December, but the job I interviewed for is still looking at references and wants to do a second interview. It is between me and some other person. I hope I get it!

Box opened

Everything was wrapped up so neatly inside of the box. I feel like this company really cares about the quality and integrity of their products, even if most of their products are not produced or made specifically by them.

The Dress:

Mai Tai Floral DressClose up

Mai Tai Floral Dress
Size Small

I feel like I will be wearing this dress, even through the fall. The colors are so bright and summery! I added a close up, so you can see more detail. The dress is even more gorgeous in real life. The colors really pop! This is a Missy’s small, btw, not a women’s small. I know there is a big difference. I am almost 5’4″, if not 5’4″ and this dress skims the tops of my knees. This is a very appropriate daytime length and the material is very silky. It has a slip, but it has a cowl neckline. Going out for a date wouldn’t be a problem to show some cleavage, but for day time use, I am definitely putting something like a cami or tangtop or some type of shirt underneath this. I feel like this is a jersey dress and could be very wearable taking care of kids in. It flatters my hourglass figure perfect, but beware! If you have a stomach, this will show it off in a bad way, not something you want to wear during your period. I have already worn this dress once and am already in love with it. It’s the perfect dress to go into fall with. Plus, it will look great with my Mai Tai nail polish!

The Lotion:

Body LotionActual size body lotion

7 Gingerbread Men Lotion
8.99 [SALE ITEM]
4 fl oz each [total of 28 fl oz]

I could not help, but pick these little guys up. They are super cute and come in a variety of holiday inspired scents. I was going to possibly separate them and give as gifts, but I am a greedy person. Once I smelt them all, I had to keep them for myself. LOL. The scents they come in are Vanilla Sugar, which smells exactly like sugar cookies; Butterscotch, which smells like true butterscotch extract made for baking; Wild Berry, which smells sweet and fruity; Mocha, which smells like artificial chocolate [this is my least favorite one]; Black Cherry, which smells sweet but a bit like medicine black cherry flavored; Chocolate Mint, which smells like mint with a bit of artificial chocolate; and Cranberry, which is true to life, it is sweet but a bit spicy as well. They are colored body lotions, so Cranberry is pink, Chocolate Mint is green, Black Cherry is a darker pink more on the red spectrum, Wild Berry is purple, Mocha is a very light beige, butterscotch is a more yellow beige, and Vanilla Sugar is white. I am keeping the packaging to put Christmas gifts in. It will be so cute for a certain someone in mind.

The Perfume Set:

Be Delicious Blossom SetBody LotionPerfume spray

DKNY Fresh Blossom Be Delicious Perfume 2 Piece Set
Spray Perfume: 0.5 fl oz
Body Lotion: 1.7 fl oz

I love this duo! I always wanted the Be Delicious green perfume, but the store only had the fresh blossom, so I settled. I am not disappointed. I am a girl with a girly/punk/glam vibe and fashion sense, so I tend to have citrus, fruity, sultry, musky scents on my perfume shelf. This is the only floral I own and it is a nice floral. Most floral, I find are too girly and pretty smelling if you know what I mean. I don’t want to smell EXACTLY like a rose. The spray perfume on its own lasts for 6 hours, but layered with the lotion, it lasts into the night. The lotion smells fresh, floral with a hint of a fruity, fresh apple smell. It is a heavenly scent that is light, but till packs a punch. One spray of the perfume is all you need, whether its layered with lotion or not. It’s strongly potent, but not overpowering. It smells similar to the lotion with one notable difference: it has more of a sultry, musky scent, which I find preferable in my floral. It is perfect for those girls that love a little edge to their life.

The Bra:

Lacy Bra

Lace Bra in Deep Sea
34 C

This is such a pretty bra, but very practical as well. The cups are not filled in with material to push the girls up, which I hate. My girls need ROOM. I like fuller coverage bra, but this still gives pretty cleavage, instead of half of your girls. It’s more like a fifth or quarter. The lace pattern is very eye-catching and the color is more of a bright teal than how it appears in the photo. There is boning on the sides, underneath, and in the middle. It is made with very sturdy underwire. It makes my girls feel supported and looks like it. It is a very comfortable bra and less expensive than Victoria Secrets with the coverage that I want. For bigger cup size girls, this is the perfect bra….at least for me.

The Underwear:


Boy Leg Panty in Deep Sea

The size of these underwear definitely run a size smaller. I wish I got the large size. I have to slowly pull these on over my thighs, where they are a bit snug going on and coming off. I cannot help it that I have beautiful shaped, muscular thighs that are not stick thin. Curvy is the new sexy. Get over it people. Besides that, these fit wonderfully and are definitely a cheeky cut if you know what I mean. These are see through, so it is more of a night-time underwear for dresses or lingerie. Again, I love the color. It makes me look tan or darker skin colored. I don’t know how some colors can do that, but they can.

That is the end of my haul. Have you bought anything similar from another store? Have you ever ordered from Midnight Velvet? Leave a comment or a request below.

With Love,


FTC DISCLAIMER: All opinions are my own. All of these items are bought or gifted to me by a family member, not by the company. I am also paying for half of these items, reimbursing said family member. 

#Julamorous, My Life, Tags

11 Questions Tag

Heya Fellow Gurus!

I was reading this same post from and I decided that I would answer her questions. I love doing fun tags like these, so if anyone reading this does a lot of tags, make sure you tag me. I would love to do more! I will add my own 11 questions at the end and I am specifically tagging Danielle from to answer my questions to keep the tag moving along. Now, onto the tag!

1. What is your favorite makeup brand?

Selena: I have a few favorites in my stash, but the one brand that I keep going back to is Maybelline New York for affordable, quality makeup and The Body Shop for higher end make up. I do want to try out Mac to see what all the fuss is about, but I have yet to buy anything from them. I’m not usually a high-end makeup buyer, unless I have coupons for Clinique or if there is a sale going on.

2. What is the best gift you received?

Selena: I would have to say that the best gifts I have received was a gorgeous cat for my 11th birthday and my lovely Chihuahua for Christmas in 2008. My cat was the cheapest gift for 20 US DOLLARS, but caring for animals are always expensive. My dog was 350 at a shelter, but she had all her shots and was fixed. They are my babies in my life right now and I love them dearly.

3. What book would you recommend I read next?

Selena: I don’t really know what kinds of books you read, so I will pick a Chick Lit book that I am really loving at the moment. I am reading Just Listen by Sarah Dessen and am loving it. Dessen creates such heartwarming stories out of tragedies. I love her writing and need to read every one of her books. I think I’ve read three or four so far.

4. What is your favorite shampoo and conditioner?

Selena: Since I am on the hunt for sulfate-free shampoo and conditioners, these might not be my favorites for long. As a complete shampoo and conditioner set, I really love TRESemme and Herbal Essence. As shampoo and conditions that can be from different brands, my go to shampoo and conditioner that I am using right now is Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Shampoo With Hawaiian Ginger and Wen by Chaz Dean in Sweet Almond Mint for a conditioner.

5. Describe your favorite outfit.

Selena: Well, my favorite outfit hanging in my closet right now for the summer is a cute summer dress from Kmart from the Selena Gomez Dream Out Loud Line. It is color blocked with a grey tee-shirt and turning into a wonderful, colorful flouncy skirt on the bottom with a flower pattern. If it’s a bit colder out, I’ll pair it with a white faux leather vest with punk studs and very fitted design. I love it, because it adds a bit of edge to the girly ensemble. The vest is from Forever21. I pair this off with an oversized pink chain necklace with pink beads and fake diamonds. For shoes, I’ll wear my white and black striped zebra sneakers with a 2 inch hidden heel with blue accents and pink laces. The shoes add major edge, but playfulness to my vibe. My personal style sense is Girly Punk or Girly Edge. I like creating my own fashion sense.

6. Do you have a lot of shoes? How many shoes do you own?

Selena: Yes, I have a lot of shoes, but I feel like I need a few more pairs. I own 2 pairs of sneakers, 3 pairs of sandals, 1 pair of knockoff Uggs, 2 pairs of heels, and 4 pairs of boots. So, that is 12 pairs of shoes total. I might be missing a pair or two, but I think I might have spring cleaned them.

7. What are your favorite stores for shopping (for anything)?

Selena: Well, my favorite stores are Ocean State Job Lot for anything is counted in beauty that I know I’ll use up before the expiration date, Kmart for those necessary purchases, clothing, shoes, and makeup; Forever 21 for clothes, accessories, and the other little items they carry; The Body Shop for certain body products, Bath & Body Works for candles, Barnes & Nobles for books since I always have gift cards, Lush for soaps and cleansers, and finally, Victoria Secrets because who doesn’t like free underwear?

8. Do you have pets? If so tell me a little about them.

Selena: I live with four animals, but only own two. I have my British short-haired cat named Shadow, who is ten years old, but still acts like a kitten. I also own a dog named Serena from Gossip Girl and she is 5 years old. I bought her from a shelter, but she was originally from Puerto Rico. I rescued her at 7 months old. She’s such a cute little thing with big bulgy green eyes, but has horrid breath. I bought her with dental problems that we have been working on. I’ve been brushing her teeth for a year every day and now most of the plaque build up is gone, but there still seems like some just won’t ome off. She might need dental cleansing from the vet in a few years if it keeps up. Here are some pics to enjoy!
SerenaShadowShadow 2Shadow and Serena

9. Do you prefer lipstick, lip gloss, lip stain, or lip balm?

Selena: I always have lip gloss on hand, but I really like lip balm for a treatment or to put on my lips before I go to bed. No need to worry about any color smudges, just pure moisture. I don’t really use lip stick or lip stains.

10. What is your favorite food?

Selena: My favorite food would be pancakes for breakfast, wraps for lunch, and spaghetti for dinner. Forgot dessert! Dessert would be a layered chocolate cake and for a snack corn chips with spicy salsa! YUM!

11. What do you like about wordpress?

Selena: WordPress is one of the easier blog sites to use and you can do all sorts of things on here that one cannot do on other sites. I like the option of pictures and spell check. I love adding photos and I am not the world’s greatest speller seeing that I learned English as a second language. Although, English is my first language now, because I rarely use the other in America. I sort of forgot most of it, besides the basics.

My 11 Questions are:

1. What area of beauty are you most interested in? Make-up, skincare, etc?
2. Are you a savvy spender or an impulse buyer?
3. Do you overspend in the beauty department?
4. On average, how much do you spend on beauty products in a month?
5. Would you rather watch Fashion Week or Participate in it?
6. What is your go-to beauty item?
7. What is your holy grail beauty product?
8. Describe your go-to outfit on a regular casual day.
9. Who would your dream boyfriend be and why?
10. What is your favorite thing to do?
11. Do you classify yourself as weird or different from the norm?

Those are my questions! You better get crackin’ on the answers. Please comment and put your url response, so that I can read your answers!

#Julamorous, Beauty, Favorites, First Impressions, My Life, Top 5

Favorites: The Hair Edition

Heya Fellow Gurus!

Now that we are nearing the end of July and the unfortunate end of Julamorous, I thought that I would start off my favorites for the month of July. I always have so many favorites a month and choosing 5 in each category seems to be the way to go. These are my top 5 favorite hair products of July. I am always buying different hair products, whether it’s because of packaging brand, or type. I use a lot of hair products, because I enjoy styling my hair all different ways. My hair is medium length. It used to be mermaid long, but I wanted a change a year ago. My hair touches th bottom of my shoulder blades on my back. It’s a good length to style all different looks. My hair is dark blonde with highlights and low lights. My roots are on the brown side. but grows out dark blonde probably from the sun. I’m always outside enjoying the rays and my dogs. My hair tends to get oily on the scalp after the 2nd day of no washing. It is a bit on the fizzy side and is layered, although they are close to being grown out. I was my hair every 2 to 4 days depending upon the season, what I am doing, and if I have dry shampoo. So, without further ado, my top 5 hair picks of July are as follows:

hair favorites

dry shampoo
1. Dry Shampoo: My current love is TRESemme FreshStart Dry Shampoo Volumizing for fine/oily hair. First off, my hair is thick and not very fine. Due to my layers, it thins out the thickness, but it is still not fine by any means. I still love this spray though, because it soaks up all of the excess oil. I just wish that the formula was a bit more powdery. It is great for my darker roots though. I give it a 4 star performance out of 5. I just shake and do short bursts. I rub my hair to soak up the oil and I have lift and dry hair in no time.

frizz ease avon
2. Frizz Shield: I mentioned my frizz problem right? Well, you knew I would mention at least one product of this nature in my favorites. My current obsession is Avon Advance Techniques Frizz Control Lotus Shield For All Hair Types. I love using this one on my damp hair as a preventative measure. When I want sleek hair, I make ure to use this after a shower. It’s an oil like consistency, like a serum and I just comb the product through. I do not apply this to my roots, because I have oily hair. I give this 5 stars for performance. I do notice a difference in how sleek my hair is after using this. When I want super sleek hair though, I add something extra.

3. Oil Treatment: Remember when I mentioned something extra? Yep, this is it. A hair oil tames away the frizz on my flat ironed or curled hair. My current favorite is M Moroccanoil for all hair types. This light weight oil is a great addition after styling my hair to fight the frizzes. I make sure to use a tiny amount and add the oil to my ends first before applying it to midshaft and down. Keep this away from roots! It can make your style look greasy and weighed down. This adds bounce and a great scent to my hair. I give this product 4 stars out of five for performance, because it can be greasy if you aren’t careful.

uvb sea spray
4. Beach Hair: Everyone loves beachy waves. They look boho and lock in the laid back feel of summer. My current love affair is with Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa UV Absorber Malibu Waves Spray For Hair. Let me start off by saying that the smell of this stuff is ah-mazing! It smells like summer in a bottle with citrus hints and real sea water. This is the best perfume for your hair! Not only does it smell fantastic, but it gives the best effortless beach waves. My hair is naturally wavy, a bt more on a curly side of the wave. So, I do not know if I am the best judge for beach wave sprays, but I find that it holds braid waves without the crunchy feeling of hair spray. I give this product 5 stars hands down. You will not be disappointed.

closeup of wen hair maskhairmask wenhair mask
Hair Treatment: Wow, it seems that 3 of my favorites revolve around my frizz problem. lol. I did not plan it that way, I swear! My current love is Wen by Chaz Dean Sweet Almond Mint Re Moist Intense Hair Treatment. For the life of me, I can never smell the almond, but the peppermint smell is exhilarating. For the price, this stuff lasts a long time. I have used it a dozen times and haven’t made a dent in it. I scope out two half-dollar sized globes and start with the ends up to my roots being sure to comb everything through. I use this after the shower as an overnight treatment. I rinse it out the next day. It makes my hair really soft and smooth. I have been using this for 12 weeks and have enough for at least that many more. I use this every one to two weeks. This perks my hair up when it needs it. Heat tends to dry hair and the ocean. I make sure to use this after a day in the sun or ocean I give this 5 stars for performance and value for the price.

Well, those were my top 5 favorites for hair products. Stay tuned to see more favorites. I am open to suggestions, so please leave a comment. What are your favorite picks for July? Make a reply blog post and link it to my blog so I can see it. I would love to find a new hair obsession.

With Love,

PS: Can you find my little doggy Serena in the pics?

#Julamorous, Beauty, First Impressions, Haul, My Life

Mini Haul-Giveaways Recieved

Heya Fellow Gurus!

I entered into a few contests, since I started to blog more regularly in June. I’m happy to note that I have won four contests! So, this is my giveaway haul of all the things that I won from the ah-mazing Jen ( here on wordpress. She has subscribed to countless subscription boxes, beauty or otherwise. So, be sure to check out her site to see what she thinks about each one. I know she is cutting her least favorites out. Now, I know which ones I should give a try and ones that I am glad I won’t be wasting money on. I am going to head right into the giveaway haul now, but I also did purchase something this week that I will be adding at the end.

giveaway haul

The package was neatly packaged and nothing got damaged during shipment. The whole thing smelled like perfume. *sigh* Lovely. It was a very pleasing smell. The big bag only had perfume in it, but I put everything else in there too for safe keeping until I put everything away. It got here surprisingly quick, which was a pleasant surprise to me. It made my day.

Satin bagged perfumePerfume samples

The perfume was in cute little satin bags and had 6 samples in each one. They were repeat samples, though. I always wanted to try the Oscar de la Renta perfume and now, I can. It is the Essential Luxuries line and I am excited to try them all!!!

Origins samples

I’ve always wanted to try something from Origins and now I can. I am an SPF addict and this will definitely be used up soon.


I love, love, love Philosophy! I am excited to try this scent. I heard that it smells true to life like cinnamon buns. I hope that’s true, because I love that smell. I have a vanilla cake flavor of the shower gel as well and it works great as a bubble bath.

Blushes Ferropink blush
bronzey blushblush swatches

These blushes are super pigmented and long wearing! I am wearing it now and it looks great on my skin tone. The pink one is called Suzie’s Glow and the bronzy one is Terra Cotta. I will use the bronze one more as a bronzer than a blush, since it is quite dark on my fair yellow undertone skin. The pink is on the left and the bronze on the right. Both are very flattering on my skin.

spf lotion

I purchased this at Ocean State Job Lot for 5 US DOLLARS. I needed an spf for my sensitive face and this one is supposed to be the best according to Danielle ( for that type of issue.

Well, that’s it for today! Hope you enjoyed it!

With Love,

My Boyfriend’s 20 US DOLLAR Makeup Challenge!

Heya Beauties!

Okay, I will admit that I had to help my boyfriend with the challenge of buying my makeup. He checked to make sure he was getting mostly sales items, but was completely overwhelmed with all the aisles and choices. His quote: “You really need this much of a variety?” Apparently, the men’s aisle is just a single aisle. Anyways, he didn’t know what most of the stuff was. I assisted him by directing him to the eye shadows, which he picked up two of them that he liked. Next, he asked me if I had an eye shadow brush, because he knows that I hate those foam things and only use them on the go. I said no, so he got me one along with an eye primer. He remembered me saying that I needed one because of my oily eyelids. We then looked at the blushes and my boyfriend picked up one that was a novelty and said it went with my purple personality. He ended up spending 21.50 US DOLLARS, not bad fo a guy without a clue.

I will now list everything he bought with pictures and my first impressions of them.
*Pulling out randomly*

CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in 205 Tropical Fusion
0.19 oz


I really like the bright vibrancy of these colors and the pigmentation in one swipe is great. I will have to build up the bright yellow eye shadow, but as is, it will make a pretty highlight shade for the inner corners. My boyfriend picked the best summer time palette, but I will confess that I will probably continue to use it into the Fall. I like that the foam applicator has a tip on one side. I look forward to trying out these colors tomorrow, because it is too late today. I’ve already done my look! These are powder, shimmer colors.

E.L.F. Studio Eye Primer & Liner Sealer in Clear & Natural
0.09 oz [Primer] / 0.14 [Sealer]


I love the concept behind this duo. I love that I can prime my eyes for shadows or use it as its own color. I really like the liner sealer for turning eye shadows into liner. No more trying to find fun eye liner colors, when you can make your own in colors tat you know you’ll love. I cannot wait to try this! Maybe I’ll use the green from the Tropical palette. My boyfriend just picked this, because it was the only eye primer. So glad he did!

*picked out Mentos*
Opps! How did you get in there?

E.L.F. Studio 84010 Small Angled Brush
1 Brush

I like that this brush is perfect for lining the eyes as well as applying eye shadow. I could use it to fill my eye brows and apply lip color, but I think that I will purchase separate brushes for that. This I will keep for my eyes. I don’t do much smokey eye looks, so a simple brush is what I need. My boyfriend picked this one, because it “looks like it’s for eye shadow, because its small but not too small.” Go figure!

Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush in 45 Orchid Hush
0.19 oz



I like that this color is a purple tinted sheer blush that is a powder, but turns into a cream. I enjoy touching the bouncy texture of the blush, but it doesn’t bounce back up. 🙂 The purple isn’t too purple. It is a purple pink with a pearly shimmer to it that is really a lot prettier in person, hence why my boyfriend thought that this purple would really suit me. I have yellow undertones, so purple really brings my face alive, but too dark of a shade of purple, just makes me seem bruised. I am eager to try this on my cheeks!

CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in 270 Crystal Waters
5.29 – 2.65 = 2.64 US DOLLARS
0.19 oz


I love how pigmented these colors are!!! My boyfriend got this palette, because he thinks that they would go with my grey eyes. Most people call them blue, but it isn’t a true blue color. I honestly only see grey in the mirror like a storming sky. These colors will flatter them and hopefully make them seem more grey by pointing out the fact that it looks less blue with a blue eye lid! These colors also contain shimmer, but I am in love with them. Especially the shimmering green, it looks very lovely! These are no-season colors, which makes them appropriate for every occasion.

My Ultimate Beauty Stash/Storage

Hey beauties!

I wanted to do a quick post today, since I did a lot of shopping and am a little too tired to do anything too long. I thought that I would show you guys how I store my makeup, skincare, hair care, body care, perfumes, and everything like that. The new stuff that I buy are not organized yet. There are still in their respective bags, until I photograph them to write a haul post. That is soon to come. These pictures will hint where I went. Please, excuse my lack of makeup at thew moment. I spring cleaned a lot of my products that turned funky and now, I have almost nothing. It is a fourth of what I used to have. So sad. But my boyfriend is doing the 20 US Dollar makeup challenge, so I’ll have more makeup. He’s sleeping over tonight and I’m going to have my second glass of wine. If you have any questions about the pictures, products, etc., feel free to leave a comment and I will get back to you.

#Julamorous, Beauty, My Life, Pedi of the Month

Epic Nails! Pedi of the Month

I gave my feet a pampering treatment yesterday complete with a foot soak and clay feet mask. It totally softened up my feet and got rid of the build up of dead skin from wearing high heels. I decided to complete the spa day by giving myself a special pedicure. While I am sitting at my computer sipping my first glass of wine since turning twenty-one, I thought that I would share how I got my pedicure done. And yes, it took me two months before I tried a drink and boy was it disgusting! I had to put sugar in it, in order not to waste it.


A closer up view:


1. Clear toe nails of polish.

2. Put cuticle oil or cream on nails and wait five minutes for it to soak in and soften up the cuticle.

3. Trim nails and file them into desired shape.

4. Keeping up with the mint trend this summer, do two coats of Avon Nailwear Pro in Sweet Mint.

5. For something a bit different but simple, add half moons in two coats of Avon Nailwear Pro in Loving Lavender.

I do not add any base coat or top coat to my toe nails, because I find that they last for a really long time either way. Doing base d top coats doesn’t make a huge difference with my toes. They are unnecessary steps for me. Do these steps and you’ll have totally cute summer nails like me that are easy to do and people are always impressed by them.

With Love,
