Swatches of Products from Cherry Culture!

WARNING: Photo overload below! Lol.

Recently I ordered some nail polishes, lip products and eyeliners from Cherry Culture! I also uploaded a Cherry Culture Haul! to my Youtube channel. If you'd like to see my haul video, watch below :)

I wanted to show you swatches of all the products so that you can see what the colours look like compared to just seeing the product for a second in a video! I swatched all of the products on white paper, so that my skin didn't change the original shade. I hope these swatches help you out!

Do-it-yourself manicures - easy and elegant!

I've gotten into a habit of taking photos of ALL my nail looks that I do - even if it's just painting my nails one colour (like a normal person lol!). I've decided to do this so I have a record of what colours look like with my skin tone, as well as to look back and add/change to the I thought I'd share some of these looks with you, they are so easy to do, and look great!

#1 Polka dots
I love, love, LOVE my dotting tool (well now I have more than one!).

#2 Nfu Oh 'Flakies'
These 'flakies' add that bit of 'jazz' to any polish!

#3 Different French Manicures
 I love French manicures, so creating different looks by using different colours and adding a little glitter or rhinestones is perfect!

#4 Glitter
Whether it's glitter polish or nail art glitter, I love using them to create some depth to a look!

Easy and Simple Christmas Nails!

Here's a nail look that I've been wearing to help bring in the Christmas season! It's very easy and simple to complete, and looks great on any length nail! I've been getting so many compliments - even from strangers!

The products I used were:

  • Essie Sensitivity Basecoat
  • China Glaze Ruby Pumps
  • L.A. Colors Art Deco - White 
  • L.A. Colors Art Deco - Silver Glitter
  • Green Nail Art Rhinestones + IBD Nail Glue
  • Seche Vite Topcoat 

I've really been loving experimenting with different french manicure looks. They always look elegant and sophisticated, plus if you use coloured nail polish, it creates a different look! Adding glitter and rhinestones just adds that pit of jazz to your nail look!!
