As I mentioned Thursday, this is one of my favorite holidays. I love America and I just love all the celebrations we have this day! I get to celebrate my freedom, all the things my military family does for me and to be honest all the GREAT food!!

Of course, I had to go all glitz with my nails. I did a little stamp and glitter earlier this week but for what I am actually rocking today is straight glitz, holo, decals and crelly! I went as skittle as you can go with these nails!

 I also picked these polishes because I know they would stay through all of the crazy festivities I have going on this weekend. Between all the good food, tubing, four-wheeling, fireworks and just good 'ol fun I need something that is going to stay. All this heavy duty glitter is going to stay and look good!

Red, White and Blue Nails for Independence Day!

**May Contain Press Samples**

Here we are!! One of my favorite holidays! I love my country and I love all the things that I get to do because I live here. I have family members that fight for my freedom every day so I love this country even more for that! Of course I am going to celebrate the heck out of this day!!
I did a makeup look from NYC New York Color a few days ago that I am going to rock for my 4th of July look... you can check that out here. Now, I decided you have to see what I designed to wear on my nails.
I have a couple different glitters to wear, so I usually do skittle because I can never just choose one. This year, I actually did two different looks because I had so many different designs floating through my head. I did one to rock today and Friday and one to rock Saturday and Sunday. Yeah... I love my country!!
For this design, I did a little glitter and a little stamping. Best of both worlds, right?? Do you have anything special on your nails for the 4th of July?

Colors Used:
Zoya- Carmen
Maybelline- Black Onyx
Julep- Monaco
L.A. Girl- Celebrate

COVERGIRL Mascara and Liner from the LASHBLAST Collection! Watch my Eyes Pop!!

**Press Sample**

I am so excited to share something with you that has been with me basically my entire makeup wearing life. COVERGIRL is a brand that has been around for so long and has been on top of their game for so long. I have two products that are staples in my collection and I am so happy to share these with you because COVERGIRL is also a staple in my beauty collection.
First up I have The Super Size by LashBlast mascara in the color Very Black. This provides bold, corner-to-corner volume (by 400%) for full, fanned out lashes. 
The details:
  • There is a new brush. The Lash Syler is supposed to find even those little tiny lashes and blast them out. 
  • It removes with soap and water
  • It is hypoallergenic and suitable for contact lens wearers
  • To amp up your volume and coverage you should twirl the brush as you apply  
  • Hits stores on July 15 
Next up is the Intensify Me by Lashblast liquid liner in the color intense black. This paddle tip brush makes a thick to thin line with no mess. 

The details:

  • Paddle- shaped tip gives you two looks in one- thick and dramatic or thin and elegant. 
  • The formula glides on smooth and is quick dry for instant drama
  • It removes with soap and water
  • It is hypoallergenic and suitable for contact lens wearers 
  • Hits stores on July 15
What I thought:
  • I loved the mascara. The brush is so revolutionary in that you are able to actually twirl it without any clumps.
  • It does lengthen and volumize. I mean, just look in the pictures above.
  • The liner was super easy to apply. The applicator was felt and was sort of oval shaped. It was easy to make thin and thicker lines and suuuuuper easy to make a beastly wing.
  •  I am always in love with a drugstore brand that does work! It's easy on my wallet and easy to find. Two pluses in my book.
