Imagine Dragons Smoke and Mirrors Makeup: Album Cover Makeup

Imagine Dragons Smoke and Mirrors is a really strong album. It was the time when I really realized just how deep Imagine Dragons could get. Their songs on this album are riddled with greater meaning, while the sound isn’t compromised at all. If you haven’t ever listened to the entire album, do yourself a favor give it a listen.

When I was deciding what music albums I would be tackling this year with my album cover makeup looks, I knew Smoke and Mirrors needed to be in the mix. Not only is it one of my favorite albums, but the album cover itself is pretty amazing. The cover art was created by an artist named Tim Cantor, who’s style is a little dark and pretty complex, while also keeping it relatively simple. I was really inspired by the colors and textures in the album art and knew I needed to represent it in the best way I could through my album cover makeup.

Mother’s Day Manicure Gift Envelope

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and it is time to start thinking about Mother’s Day gift ideas! I think it is important to give moms a reason to treat themselves for Mother’s Day, but it can be hard for them to find a time to go to a salon to use gift certificates. That is why I love the idea of giving moms Color Street nails for Mother’s Day! They are 100% nail polish strips that last longer than traditional nail polish, are super affordable, and moms are able to put them on themselves at home!

Teacher Appreciation Manicure Gift Envelope

It is hard to believe that the end of the school year is near! It is teacher appreciation and end of year teacher gift season! As a wife of a former teacher, I know that teachers don’t need anymore mugs or even chocolate. Give gifts that you would want to give to your friends! They don’t need to be expensive, just thoughtful. I absolutely love Color Street nails for that exact reason. They are 100% nail polish strips that last longer than traditional nail polish, are super affordable, and they make perfect gifts!

These gift envelopes are the perfect way to “wrap” Color Street nails. You just print them out on cardstock paper, cut them out, and tape or glue them together. On one example, I used double sided tape to tape them together and on the other one I used washi tape. You can do  it however you want! [Read more…]

Color Street Gift Wrapping

I am a Color Street Independent Stylist. Color Street nails are nail strips, but they are made of 100% nail polish. They are really thin, so they don’t feel like something bulky is on your nails. They don’t require any heat or cutting to apply them either. But the best part is that they last 2 weeks (and sometimes longer) on your hands and toes! They come in a variety of solid colors, prints, French tips, glitter, and seasonal prints. They have so many different styles that they work for just about anyone, no matter what their personal style might be. You can see my application video and learn more about Color Street nails by reading this blog post.

These would be the perfect stocking stuffer, gift for your mom, sister, wife, girlfriend, best friend, daughter, pretty much anyone on your list! You can shop for them on the Color Street Glam website. The French tips are buy 1 get 1 free and ALL other styles are buy 3 get 1 free!

Here are some ways that you can gift them!

What are Color Street Nails?

I am an Independent Stylist for Color Street nails. I am a Senior Director with the company and have been with the company since they launched.

What is Color Street? You may have thought that very thought as you have seen Color Street nails on someone. I was lucky enough to have that question answered before the company launched, when I decided to join the company as a founding stylist! Color Street nails are 100% nail polish strips that are incredibly easy to apply and last for roughly 2 weeks. I am officially hooked!

Easy Fall Confetti Nail Art

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sally Beauty. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love all of the beautiful red violet that is showing up this season. You can see it in clothing, makeup, and even in hair color this time of year. I love embracing these seasonal colors, but instead of investing so much into purchasing a whole new red violet wardrobe or dying my hair right now,  I decided to go with a fun Fall manicure! I find doing my nails to be pretty therapeutic and love how just having my nails done can make my confidence boost a little.
