February date

Hello readers! Once a month my fiance and I like to go out for a special date. We call it monthiversary and is when we celebrate our relationship monthly and that we are alive and together. Normally what we do is go out (breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner) spend the day together and afte we exchange small presents.  We been doing this for over 2 years and I also see it as a great opportunity to dress pretty and do my makeup. 
*In one of those date is how I got engage ;) 

For this month (February) we went to the south, Ponce! We are from the San Juan and it took us about 1hr and a half to get there. We went to "Con Leche cafe bar & bistro" the place was really simple, the service was ok but the food was AMAZING!  

I will share with you few photos of our date:

Makeup I used:



We really had a great time, the food was nice and the road was really pretty and smooth.  If you have never celebrated a monthiversary with your partner, I really recommend it to you because is a great opportunity to have date, spend the day together and sometimes it happens that you are at the store, find something cute for your love one but dont know when or how give it to him/her.  Plus it can help the relationship grow.  Whenever is possible, pick a place, keep the present for that special date, get pretty and go out! You will thank me later! 

I hope you had fun reading this post.
Do you date monthly? weekly? Whats your best relationship advice?

Kiko Makeup swatches and Review

Hello readers! Few months ago we finally got a Kiko store here @ Puerto Rico! Yay!  The first time I went there was with my fiance, I dont know why, I wasnt impress with what I saw but the second time I went with my best friend I ended up buying few things. 

First of all, they had a 65% off (winter sale) so basically I got all this products for $11 + tax! The eyeshadows where $8 regular price and I cant remember how much it was the Mixing Solution but it was like $3!  I went for products that I dont have and I tried them at the store first before buying to make sure it was worth it, even if it was $2- $3 each product.  I got three eyeshadows and one mixing solution pot. The eyeshadows are Kiko 264 Infinity High pigment eyeshadow, 408 Infinity+ Sparkle eyeshadow and 290 Infinity High pigment eyeshadow. I notice they use numbers instead of "names" for the eye shadows. 


The Kiko Mixing Solution is to be used with pigments, eyeshadows, glitters and so on.  The first time I used I wasn't sure of the texture and I used more than I should on my eyeshadow brush, so what I did was clean a bit the excess with a towel.



Swatches on bare skin, no primer!

Kiko 264 Infinity High pigment eyeshadow is teal matte with gold glitters, the texture is creamy and felt really soft.
Kiko 408 Infinity+ Sparkle eyeshadow is my favorite one, this one is gorgeous! Is a metallic aqua color, with a bit of gold shimmer. I used this one with the Mixing Solution and love it! Really pigmented, soft and no fallout. 
Kiko 290 Infinity High pigment eyeshadow is dark grey with some pale silver glitters. Same as the others, creamy, pigmented and soft. 

Swatches with flash to appreciate all the glitters! The swatches where on bare skin with no primer. 

This is my first time using Kiko and I can say I really like what I got and that I'm impress. It is a little bit more expensive than drugstore but their sales are amazing! 

Do you own any Kiko product? Any recommendation? Dont forget to let me know you been reading this post :)

Sexy Lace (Valentine Manicure #2)

Hello! Here's my second Valentine manicure entry.  This time I went for something more bold. My first Valentine manicure had light colors and I named "Love Letter."  For this one I wanted something red, black and sexy.  I got inspired by the red with lace lingerie at Victoria Secrets.



For this manicure I used:
Formula X Base Coat
China Glaze With Love (2 coats)
Wet n' Wild Fergie No Place Like Home (2 coats)
Sinfulcolors Black on Black (for stamping)
Stamping Plate hehe018
Nina Ultra Pro Super Dry Top Coat 


I been feeling kinda unlucky lately with stamping and Im trying to practice more since I have about 10 stamping plate without using. Any nail stamping tips are really welcome.

Thank you for passing by, let me know you saw this post :) Have a nice day!

New babies at home!

OMG! It feels like 2 months since the last time I went nail polish shopping.  I always like to take a break from buying nail polish because I have A LOT of untried (3 shoe boxes). Now I'm trying to use as many as I can in a manicure or pedicure.  I'm would like to go from 573 to 300 or less since my fiance and I gonna move soon and it will be easier to have less nail polish.  I think I'm failing my mission since my last buy was on December (6), November (7) and September (15).  Yup I'm failing... #foreverfailing lol. This month I got 5 from Sally Supply, they are have a sale section I like to check it out every time I got because they always have great deals. 



China Glaze "Whats She Dune?", "Rain Dance The Night Away" and "The Heat is On"
This one came with a bonus Stripe Rite in black for $7.99

China Glaze "Brand Sparkling New Year" ($2.49) Orly "Mirrorball" ($7.49) and China Glaze "I Soiree I Didnt Do It" ($2.49)

I really hope to use them all real soon, right now I'm wearing Orly Mirrorball because it was on my wish list and I couldn't wait to try it. I will post some photos and review real soon.

Do you have any of this on your stash or wish list? 

Thanks for passing by! See ya next time!

Cutie - Toes edition

Hello! I hope you are doing great!

Few months ago I went to Seattle, Washington. Along my travels over there, I took the opportunity and went shopping for other types of nail polish and clothes that I do not regularly come across.  One of the nail polish that I purchased is titled: "Cutie" by L.A. Colors. I gave myself a pedicure recently and wanted to apply something soft for my toes. I don't usually post this kind of post but since "Cutie" looks so cute (Pun intended) here's some photos.




L.A. Colors "Cutie"  is a light purple jelly nail polish full of white and blue round glitters in different sizes. It also has silver stars that are not hard to catch compared to the one from HotTopic I posted before. 



I thought I would need 2 coats but, I ended up with 4 and it still looked sheer (transparent). I might try it on my nails soon to see how it looks and works best. I used Nina Ultra pro fast dry top coat to finish it. 
I don't remember how much it cost me, I believe I got it from Dollar Tree store so it that's the case is $1. 
Thank you for passing by! Have a great day!

No bathtub no problem | LUSH Bubble Bars





If you are like me and dont have a bathtub but wanna try a LUSH Bubble Bars here's a new way to use them.  You can use them for your pedicure or your manicure.  
This is how I use mine, I cut a small piece of the bubble bar and trow it into the water that I gonna use for pedicure or manicure. Depending on how much water I gonna use is how much bubble bath I cut. Then I let it run in the water while it disolve. 




The one I used is a pumpkin with cinnamon and a lot of gold glitter. It turned the water orange/yellow with glitter.  I let my feet for about 20 minutes and finished with Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel Sparkling snowflake scrub.  The combination left my skin so smooth and smelling good. 


I got mine as a Christmas present from my fiance who got it from LUSH store.

Marc Jacobs Shocking





The Marc Jacobs nail polish is a creamy beautiful bright pink that only needs 2 coats for perfection. You have to give it time to dry though.To add more fun to this color, I applied another nail polish I bought at HotTopic that contains glitters. The glitter doesn't have a name but it has black, pink and purple glitters in different sizes and some pearl white stars that are a little bit hard to catch. 

This is my first Marc Jacobs product and I'm happy with the results. Regarding the HotTopic nail polish, I used to have a few of them, but they ended up in the trash because they got expired or something like that.  Since I am buying them again, I have few glitter combos that are interesting and unique to my collection.  








Base Coat: X Formula
Nail Polish : Marc Jacobs Shocking (2 coats) topped with HotTopic pink/pur spltr/str np (3 coats) 
Top coat: Nina Ultra pro super dry top coat (2 coats)

LUSH Shower Jelly Review

Hello, today Im going to talk about LUSH Shower Jelly in Santa's Belly.


LUSH shower jelly is a jelly based body soap, similar to Jell-o. The one I got is from their Christmas collection called "Santa's Belly." On the cap it reads "Star anise infusion and fresh apple juice scent this festive red jelly." Its smell is delightful as apples. I think I'm addicted to the aroma. Haha!  Its a red apple color and has little golden stars that dissolve in the water. 



Instructions on the pot 

How to use:  Crush a small bit of jelly into a shower pouf or right onto your skin while in the bath or shower.




The first method I tried was crushing a small bit on my skin. It was messy and didn't work for me because it was breaking apart and falling onto the floor constantly.  Then I tried the other method with a shower pouf and it worked much better.  A little bit of it goes a long way and the smell stays on your skin for hours. 
Would I buy it again? That's for sure! 



I got mine at LUSH store for $6.95

Have you tried this before? Do you like the jelly idea? Would you buy it or pass it?

Where I been, what I been doing, update!

Glad to be back!
Last post was on 2014, since then there's few things that happened in the last 2 years.  If you follow me on Instagram or like my Facebook page you can find some information.
First of all, my computer broke back in 2013, that's why I stopped doing YouTube videos and posting on here.  I'm doing everything I can to go back to YouTube, is on my bucket list to keep doing nail tutorials and makeup videos. But without my own computer and equipment it's been really complicated. Right now I'm posting from my phone.

Out of that much hasn't happen, I went to Orlando, FL on Oct 2014 with my fiancé and friends...

Here's some 2014 nails
