Must Haves for Summer: Bright Lips

 

Makeup wise I can’t think of anything that screams summer to me more than bright lips. I know some people would argue and say bronzer but to me (being on the paler side) it’s always bright lips.

Dots and Stripes- Easy Nail Art Tutorial

Nail art can sometimes be a bit too tricky at home for me but with the help of some cheap striping tape and dotting tools (I bought both from eBay for under $5!) this is a really easy nail art tutorial.

The colour combinations for this is endless but I am really loving the two lighter grey/ lavenders (they are almost opaque after 1 coat, 2 is perfect!) from the Essie winter collection I got sent a while and decided to pair them with a white.

For a white cheap polish this one actually performs a lot better than I was expecting. It retails around the $3-4 mark and isn’t as thick as some other cheap whites I’ve tried.

I finished off with the Australis top coat which I am loving over every single polish I’ve tried it with, I wish I could capture the gorgeous flakies but my photography skills really aren’t that great to begin with. I promise I am really trying to take better shots but some days I just really suck!
