What Do They Mean to You?

Okay, so everyone should know I am obsessed with nail polish, so much that it is sad. I love painting my nails and making them different with designs which you can see in links at the bottom of this post. Now, this is my post about what nail colors mean to me and how they make me feel.

Red:

Red to me makes me feel not only classy but sexy in a way because red can add much confidence to me. I really like how red looks on my nails alone. Actually, now that I think about it, this is the only nail color aside from black that could be blank and I could wear it for weeks on end. Red also makes me feel empowered and strong in a way that I am normally not so.

Orange:

Orange to me is a very fun and summer color. I really like that this orange is what I envision it to be, if you look on google, you will see that most orange nail polishes are lighter than the picture above. I think that orange makes me feel fun and outgoing even though I am not normally. I really like that it makes me feel a little better when I am having a crappy day so it is nice to have a happy booster when feeling down.

Yellow:

Seriously, I love yellow on my nails, at least that is what my nail polish bottles tell me. I have used a yellow nail polish, specifically Sinful Colors in Unicorn, and it is almost halfway done compared to others that I have had longer than that. Yellow makes me feel at ease with life and makes me feel like the sun is out when it is not. Just a happy-go-lucky color.

Green:

I don’t really think that green makes me feel envious at all if you think so, that’s cool :]. I personally think that green is so pretty on my skin tone. I have light skin but it has yellow undertones and the green just makes it even a little in my eyes. I think that green is a spring color and feels very fresh and new to the eye and day.

Blue:

Blue is a beautiful color I suppose, honestly, blue is my least favorite color of all colors. There are exceptions to this color and if you are wondering, I don’t really like these colors on the picture. Anyway, blue reminds me of the ocean which I really like since I don’t live right by the ocean. Blue is just a meh color for me.

Purple:

Purple makes me feel like going out to a party and dance til I drop dead. I really love how purple can be different since darker purples make me feel that but lighter purples make me feel innocent if that makes sense or clean. I just really think that purple is a great color that is versatile on everyone.

Brown:

Browns in any shade make  me feel warm and down to earth. I feel that brown is a much better neutral than a french manicure color which is a really light brown pink mix that most cannot see. Earth and trees are what come to mind with brown and that is what makes me feel like I am grounded at times when I feel like everything is going wrong.

Gray/Grey:

Grey to me is a sad and down color at times but I personally don’t own a true gray, more like silver gray’s which are pretty but I think that the actual color grey is very down and makes the sky gloomier should it be a cloudy day. I am changing up the word gray because I don’t know which people prefer to spell it so I just used both.

White:

White is a very clean cut color for me and can make any nails look more classier and clean than they already are with other colors. Personally, I don’t really care for white alone and it makes me feel like it is too white for itself and I always want to add something to it. White is just too clean for me ><.

Black:

Black is the color that started it all for me because I was going through a goth/emo phase and wanted black nail polish. Of course, being Asian, they don’t like black, but I had almost everything in black. I love the way black nail polish looks and it makes me feel reminiscent of those days when I was naive and now that I know more I wish I had gotten into nail polish earlier and not when I was going through a phase. Black is very clean and you can add any color and it still looks chic and clean cut.

Pink:

Pink is my favorite color in everything else but not in nail polish. I like it sometimes but it isn’t my go-to color when it comes to nail polish. I will choose another color over this one almost every time. I just am not a huge fan of pink in the way that I don’t really like it on my nails unless they are short. Occasionally I wear pink but not often.

Review: Love & Beauty Lipstick in Red

 

Hello Shopahaulics, Tiffany here, and I would like to say that if you are not comfortable with red, don’t jump in. I did and it scared the bejezzus out of me. I am not used to red lipstick…and I saw my best friend, she must have thought I was a crazy lady or something, I am sure. I give fair warning because red lipstick just scares me but I am going to work a way to get this right. Anyway, this lipstick is so smooth! I mean really smooth and it is really good formulation. There is a smell that is weird to me but it isn’t disgusting or turns me off. I think that the smell grows on you. You don’t need a lot of this red, so a brush applicator would be really good if you want to subtlify it. I think that Love & Beauty does really well with their products. I personally don’t own a lot of their products but it would be nice since this lipstick makes me want to get the other colors. There are two or three other colors, a light pink, hot pink, and I am not sure about the other color. This is $2.80 if I am not mistaken and is really great if you are starting out a makeup collection.

Positive: Great lipstick.

Negative: I am scared of it lol.

Eyes On Me: Colorful Rainbow

This came from juicystar07 on youtube who I love because she is so quirky and happy. I really love how she made a rainbow of sorts with this tutorial.

I know you can’t see the yellow but it is there. I used L.A. Colors Wildflowers palette (BES433). The yellow, orange, and hot pink colors are what I used. I bought this for $1.00 at Dollar Tree. The hot pink comes out a little red so it will be find and it is a good alternative since I don’t have red.

On the top of the lid I used AVON ultra luxury eyeliner in Eggplant. I bought this $1-2 from AVON and is a very good eyeliner and goes on the lid amazingly well.

For the waterline I used AVON dual-ended eyeliner in blue-turquoise. I bought this for $1.99 and it is amazing! I want more of these but I don’t think that they are coming back into the outlet any time soon. But, the turquoise is the brightest I have ever seen of eyeliner.

I think this is my summer look and it is really easy to do. I can’t remember what mascara I used but any is fine.

Here is the video to her tutorial:

Review: Sinful Colors in Tapping Nails

I bought this because I wanted to do a tiger print or some kind of striped print. I think that I should have gotten a lighter color. The color is super pretty on the nails on its own, a variation of oranges that is nice. I think this is a good color for winter months when you want a warm bright color but not so bright that it seems obnoxious or not to your comfort. The color can come off as red from what I can tell when I painted my mom’s toes. Maybe it is depth variation? I don’t really know. I think that this is really beautiful on longer nails but chic on short nails. I really like the consistency of the polish which is sometimes hard to find.

Positive: I love the color.

Negative: it can look very red in certain light.

Nail File #9: Just A Little Sparkle

I do believe this is my most elaborate and intricate nail design to date. I love this but it is a lot of work to recreate. Funny how it only took three hours, I think. It looks hard, best believe, but it isn’t that hard to do with a steady hand or help.

NAIL POLISHES USED:

N.Y.C. Broadway Burgundy Frost

L.A. Colors Art Deco in White

L.A. Colors Art Deco in Black

L.A. Colors Art Deco in Gold Glitter

L.A. Colors Art Deco in Silver Glitter

STEPS:

1. Apply base coat

2. Apply two coats of N.Y.C. Broadway Burgundy Frost onto nails.

3. Make a swooped line below the bottom half of the right side of the nail but make sure that it stops three-fourths of the way to the left side of the nail bed.

4. Repeat step 3 but make sure that there is space below the first swoop for the glitter.

5. Reverse the same with the top half of the nail bed.

6. Put L.A. Colors in Art Deco in Gold Glitter in between the two white swoops.

OPTIONAL:

7. If you would like to do the thumb, use L.A. Colors Art Deco in Black and start from the top of the nail bed, nearer to the left, making two swoops to go towards the center of the nail.

8. Make two other black swoops from the right side towards the center, copying the same steps as step 7.

DONE!

I love these nails.
