Review: Nail Foils (

Hi Guys and Gals, 
I was recently contacted by BornPrettyStore online to do a review on one of their products and I chose to review their nail foils. I love how nail foils look and its definitely a new trendy thing to do to your nails.  

If you want to try these nails for yourself, here is a code you can use to get a discount off anything on their website:  AHMK31

I must admit...these suckers were hard to put on! They did give you different sizes for your nails but I still ended up having to cut them myself to fit my nails which wasn't easy. Once you cut them, you gotta line them up on your nails which I wasnt very good at. Once I lined them up, I had to smooth the foil out so there was no bubbles of ripples. I wish the foils came with a tool to smooth out the foil. Would have been way easier. The tough part was to smooth out the top of the nail, them file the excess off. 

Anyway, when I was done they looked awesome. I messed up on a few but I think I did good for my first time. I got tons of compliments on them too. 
So the downer with these foils that it only lasted one day! The edges on the top on my nail was totally pealing back and catching on things. By the second day I had to take them off which was a shame bc they looked really cool. Just didnt stay on the nail =(

I would probably buy these again just to try different ways in applying them. I would only get them for a one day use tho for a Holiday party or something. 
I would rate this product a 7
Here is a pic of the foils on day 2. You can see they are totally pealing off.

Halloween Makeup: Masquerade Ball

I think Masquerade Balls was one of the most sexiest, coolest things they did in the 16tth century during the Renaissance. They were mostly parties for the upper class and was popular in Venice, Italy. 
This look took quite a bit of time to complete but was worth it in the end. I really liked how it turned out. Besides a Masquerade mask, I think it could pass for a super hero or a girl version of Zorro. 
My favorite detail were the jewels that i glued around my mask. I found the jewels at Michaels for like $5.

Halloween Makeup: 1920s Flapper Girl

I Love this look! The makeup was really beautiful in the 1920s. 
Fun Facts:
In the 1920s, wearing makeup was considered dangerous because of lot of it consisted of lead, sulfer, and mercury. Then, people thought that women had no reason to be in the sun, therefore should be pale. This was a popular look. People also believed that "nice girls" did not wear makeup.
The Flapper girl is one of my favorite looks for Halloween so it was a really fun look for me to create. When I was done I didnt want to take it off!
