Sugar Spun Nail Tutorial

I am very excited for this post, I've been looking online for
awesome nail ideas to try out and this looked so fun that i had
to try it out. I hope you enjoy this as much as i did.

Nail Polish:
Essie: Lilacism
Sally Hansen: Pacific Blue
Top/Base Coat: Rimmel

Ok for this tutorial since its a bit hard to explain through pictures
i did make a video for you all to see. which i will post at the end of this post.

First, you pick out your colors and start by painting your nails with
the color of your choice. I used a lilac by essie.

Then you begin by putting the other color of your choice on 
anything that you dont mind getting dirty i used a plastic top
that i have and start by mixing the polish with a toothpick
until it starts getting thicker (you can blow on it to get it thicker
faster) and you start by picking and dragging
the color over your nail.

Make sure you do not touch your nail with the toothpick.
i accidentally did and it just creates bigger streaks
which is not what you want but for my first attempt it was fine.

And that is basically all you do, you just repeat the steps over
again for all of your nails. :) Check out the video so you can 
get a better understanding of it. Here are some more pictures....

this does get messy so after your done you just get some
nail polish remover and a q-tip and clean the edges.

Here is the Video! :)

Two-toned Mani Tutorial

Lately Iv'e been painting my nails just a solid color so i haven't been able to 
do a tutorial. I was on the Essie fb page and saw that the two-toned mani is 
fresh for this fall season. I wanted to do fall colors but since i do live
in south florida i went with these colors instead. What do you think?

Nail Polish:
Top Coat: Seche Vite
Essie: Lapiz of Luxury (Blue)
Essie: Turquoise & Caicos (Mint)

First pick out the 2 colors you want to use.
Then paint ur nails with the lighter color first.
I used 3 coats of the mint one.

You wait for it to dry and then paint one side of the nail
with the second color. It's best to start from the corner in so
you can see how far you want to go. Remember they 
don't all have to be perfectly centered. You can have 
different sizes.

As you can see i painted the blue on one side
then went on to the next nail and painted it on the
opposite side so its a little different & my
lines are different sizes too. :)

And thats basically all you do, just repeat steps
for the other hand. Its really easy to do because 
your basically painting your nails and not doing any
 nail art. Here are more pictures of how it turned out.

Fashion Night Out Miami

Happy Friday everyone, last night as many of you know
was Fashions Night Out. It was actually my first time
attending and i had such a great time! I went with my fellow
blogger Yvette. Are you ready for a picture heavy blogpost? 

Outfit Details: 
Blouse: Forever 21/ Cobalt Blue Skinnies: Express/ 
Heels: Kardashian Kollection

So the first thing we ended up doing was watching
 a little fashion show that they had on the 2nd level,
 we were waiting for the lovely Julissa Bermudez 
from Empire Girls to show up.

Then we went downstairs to where Julissa Bermudez was 
arriving and they had delicious cupcakes for us too. :) 
The cupcakes are from My Cake Dreams The owner Nidia was
so nice anyone in south fl make sure you check her out.

After the delicious cupcake the beautiful Julissa B. arrived
and we got to meet, talk, & take pictures with her.

She was so sweet and fun. I love that she was so into
her fans and very nice as well.

After meeting her we took an art class. 
An art class in the mall you say?? Well yes, 
we were walking to go back upstairs when they 
asked us to sit down and paint. How cool? 

Our art teacher Eric from Painting With A Twist
was so helpful, he was showing us step by step instructions
on how to paint this Little Black Dress Painting.
Which was the perfect thing to paint for FNO.

After we finished with the art class we went up to the
3rd floor were they had food and drinks. However
since the art class did take a little long by the time we got up
there the food was gone lol the only restaurant that was still
up there was from Bongos Cuban Cafe. They gave us a taste
of the Arroz amarillo con Pollo (chicken with yellow rice)
but since they were out of plates we didn't care and asked
for a napkin the rice was so worth it though.

That was the end of our night at Fashions Night Out.
I truly did have a good time and looking forward to next years.

Hope you all had a fun FNO if you did go 
anywhere and make sure to subscribe to my blog i'm 
having a giveaway next week with the lovely
Vercelis Boutique so stay tuned. :)
