Esqido False Lashes in "Unforgettable"

Hello, my beautiful friends. I have another pair of gorgeous Esqido False Lashes to share with you today. (My first post about them can be viewed here). For today's look, I'm wearing their lashes in the style "Unforgettable".


This style is described by Esqido as "Natural and elegant. This pair of mink lashes features a gradient of increasing length and thickness across the lash band, resulting in a subtle yet beautiful winged out effect."




Look how fluffy these beauties are!

I'm continually impressed by the quality of Eqido's false lashes. These handcrafted lashes can be worn upwards of 25 times with proper care!  That makes them sooooo worth the cost. Be sure to stop by Esqido's website and check out these lovely lashes!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Here is some nail art I did with these polishes: I started by brushing on a few strokes of Silver Canvas, and then layered the colors on top of each other:




Final Thoughts: I really loved how blendable these were. I loved their jelly-like finish and found them to be super glossy!

NEW OPI Soft Shades Collection For 2015 (Nail Polish Pictures & Review)

Press Sample


Hi friends! Each year, OPI releases it's "Soft Shades" collection and it is always one I look forward to. Say what you want about nudes and neutrals, but they are my absolute favs!  They have a fun glitter in this year's collection as well!  Check them out:


Put It In Neutral
A sheer mauve-rose shade. This is 4 (yes, 4) layers of polish. 

Petal Soft
A clear base with pink and white matte glitters in different sizes, including some fun flower shaped ones! (1 layer shown here over Put It In Neutral). This glitter was easy to apply with no "fishing" needed- the pieces come out easily and lay flat.

Act Your Beige
A sheer, white-leaning beige. (3 layers shown)

Chiffon My Mind
A white base with a touch of pink with a pretty purple/pink shimmer flash running through it.
 (3 layers shown)


This Silver's Mine
Metallic, warm silver with a slight pink undertone. Warning- if your nails have imperfections like mine do, you may want to use a smoothing base coat first. This definitely shows your flaws. Pretty color still! (3 layers shown)

Make Light Of The Situation
A sheer sparkly, glittery, magical polish that is perfect for layering. 
(Shown here over This Silver's Mine)

And here is what Make Light Of The Situation looks like on it's own (2 layers):

Conclusion: I'm not always a fan of colors that require more than 2 layers, but there are some beauties in this bunch still. I definitely love Petal Soft and want to try layering it over other colors!

What do you think of these?
