Ever since I tried Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips, I’ve received tons of compliments on my nails! Sally Hansen Salon Effects comes in a variety of fun designs (leopard spots, zebra stripes, lace, flowers, denim, etc.) and all sorts of colors and finishes (matte, shimmer, neon, and glitter). See my step-by-step pictures on how to apply them, and check out my trick to get both a manicure and pedicure from just one box!
When I saw these heels on ModCloth.com, I could see why they named it “Words Can’t Express Heel” — there’s a lot going on, and it’s hard to describe! I’ve never seen anything like it before, so I knew I just had to have these because they are so unique! The outside of the shoe is covered in quilted red suede, and the back has a flower with petals made from a variety of printed fabrics. These heels are definitely showstoppers!
For this look, I’m featuring the dark teal Mega Metal Shadow called “Odalisque” that I wrote about in my MAC Peacocky Collection review. I lined my lower water line with a similar colored eye pencil, and I added a touch of purple along the entire lash line for an extra punch of color.
MAC’s Peacocky Collection is made up of Mega Metal Shadows and Kissable Lipcolours that come in a wide range of colors from neutral to very bold. The metallic Mega Metal Shadows have a smooth texture that’s easily blendable with great color payoff. The Kissable Lipcolours combine the creamy pigment-rich look of a lipstick with the smooth glide of a lip gloss.
There are many ways to create a smokey eye, but the Classic Black Smokey Eye is one of the most dramatic and sultriest ways to wear it. This classic look is characterized by a black eye shadow that starts from your upper lash line and is blended upwards to just past your crease. Black eye pencil and eye shadow are also smudged/swept along the entire lower lash line to give an edgier look.
