Nails: Essie Chinchilly

Posted by Jane at 6:10 PM 2 comments

hello there! so i know i've been slacking on YT videos but i thought i'd share a NOTW (nails of the week) to make up for it.

this shade of grey would probably be one that is similar to metro chic but not a dupe because i feel like this shade is a lot more wearable and lighter than metro chic. i really like this shade and these pictures were taken after 2-3 days of painting so i'm very impressed with the staying power. i have been using a new top coat which i will speak about in my upcoming june hits & misses video whenever i have the time to film that is!

hope everyone is doing well and this swatch helps! (:

Nails: Essie Van D'go

Posted by Jane at 11:26 AM 3 comments
so this was last week (May 22-28th ) Nail Of The Week (NOTW)

Essie Van D'go

i really liked this color! i feel like it's great for the summer time. it's a light pink/coral color.

i started collecting more Essie colors just recently before my recent haul of Essie polishes i only owned 2-3 colors and i will say i am beginning to love that brand of polish but for me personally i still like China Glaze as my top brand but Essie is one of my top brands as well and i would definately recommend Essie polishes.

i'm gonna try to get back into the habit of doing these NOTW so you can get more swatches of different polishes that i own! (:

How-to Color your Hair at Home (w/ video)

Posted by Jane at 1:00 PM 1 comments

Step 1:
make sure you have all the supplies you need including the color of your choice + the right amount of developer for your color.

i have hair that is an 1-2 inch(es) past my shoulder & i got 2 bottles but i think i would've done fine w/ 1 bottle as i ended up w/ a lot of leftover. in my opinion you would only need 2 if your hair is down to your boob or somewhere in that area.

the side of the bottle will tell you how much developer to color you will need to the color you have.

Step 2:
next you will add the color & the developer together into a hair coloring bottle i would suggest putting the developer in first as it is a cream consistency so it will sit as the color will just fall right into the creme.

Step 3:
once all is in the bottle you will need to shake to mix well.

Step 4:
once all the color is in your hair bun it all together put a processing cap on.

Step 5:
wait 25 minutes!

Step 6:
wash color out followed by shampooing and conditioning. you can use a special conditioner for color treating hair or your regular one.

Step 7: done!
allow to dry with a blow dryer or air drying.

watch video below for an in depth explanation:
