It’s almost morning and I’m in bed enjoying the melodies of these songs and ambience of the atmosphere.   Listen with me… Tory Lanez – Connection (feat.

Nails of the Moment

BEAUTY
April 20 2018

There’s just something about coral nails that screams summer and holidays and vacations! I’ve been allowing my nails to rest for a few weeks, and I’d been digging the natural look. But today I felt like freshly lacquering them up, and decided on this coral by Essie called “Tart Deco”. They always have cute and witty names for the colours. Do you use Essie? What are some of your favourite nail polishes? xoxo

I’ve even used it on days I’ve gone to the beach/pool side and it’s worked well. Below are the products I use, and I’ve dubbed… My Makeup HOT List: 1. SPF MOISTURISER/PRIMER: Bobbi Brown Protective Face Base SPF 50 This protects and primes my face! 2. BROW PENCIL:… Read More »
