Givenchy Noir Interdit Mascara – The One With The Bendable Wand!

Givenchy Noir Interdit Mascara - Review

So, a $38 mascara with a bendable wand?  Can Givenchy’s Noir Interdit mascara live up to the hype and actually get all of those lashes?  Is it worth $38? Don’t get me wrong, I will splurge on something that works for my lashes but with a short shelf life, $38 is high for mascara. I hate my lashes.  They are not super long.  They don’t hold a curl well.  Plus I am really fussy about mascara.  I don’t like to[Read more]

Born Pretty Store Big Ben Water Decal Nails

big Ben London Nail Decals Born Pretty BLE Nail Sticker - Non Transparent 37307

I have had these travel themed water decals sitting in my nail art stash forever.  Since the Canadian Beauty Bloggers theme of the month is British Beauty, seemed like a great time to try out the Big Ben decals from this pack.  The travel pack has a mix of London, Paris and Pisa decals even though it is named the Big Ben Pattern.  I am pretty sure by British Beauty, they meant British brands but whatever… I want Big Ben[Read more]

Joy and Polish Spiced Plum stamped with BPL024 Leaves and Mdu Gold Copper and Merry Leaves Nail Art

Another day, another #CBBNov prompt.  Actually, having only two a week has been really nice.  Even if I haven’t been perfectly sticking to the posting schedule.  The second prompt for this week is leaves and since I pulled out my fall and winter themed stamping accessories, this was an easy one for me.  I used three stamping polishes to give the leaves different colours and loved the final look. Joy and Polish Spiced Plum stamped with BPL024 and Mundo de[Read more]

Nail Stamping With A England In Robe & Crown #CBBNov

CBBNov Stamping Prompt - A England In Robe and Crown - BP Gold - Pueen Geo Lover 02 plate - Swatch

I prefer challenges I can actually keep up with and #CBBNov seems to be working for me with just two prompts a week.  Today, we are doing stamping.  Easier for us nail bloggers than the regular beauty bloggers, but I am hoping to see some eyeliner stamping and similar reviews from them! Today is lazy nail art because I used the polish I was already wearing and just added stamping.  My base is two coats of A England In Robe[Read more]

Poppy Nail Art

Poppy Nail Art Swatches - November 11 - Zoya Posh Matte - Maybelline Tenancious Teal - Essence Enter Wonderland and Black is Back

Part of the #CBBNov challenge is a prompt for poppies.  The prompt was for yesterday, but it feels right posting it today.  I originally tried to stamp a poppy-like design onto my nails.  I didn’t have a perfect stamp so the closest I had was this image from the Pueen Nature Lover 02 plate. Close to poppy looking but not perfect.  Plus, the way the stamp is designed, there isn’t a lot of space for a background so I ended[Read more]
