Starlight Under the Tree or Tree on Starlight

**press sample**

It's late, I'm sick, my mom is sick, cats are sleeping, novena is over (if you're Colombian, you know what I mean),  and my nails were undone.  I figured I fix that :)

Using Ro-Man-ce on the Moon, I Drive a SuperNova, GA27 stamping plate and green rhinestones, I created yet another festive Christmas manicure

Ro-Man-ce on the Moon stamps very well.  the silver doesnt show too well over the shimmery red, but both shades have some stamping future.

Ok! my nails are now done, the cats woke up and are signaling me to go to bed... yes! they put me to bed... what has my life come to?? LoL


Until next time my pretty readers <3

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Trio and NYC worthy Look

** press sample ** 

When you live so close to one of the most amazing cities in the world, it's almost mandatory to try and play the part or at least "look" the part.  

The glam in every New York City venue it's almost intimidating.  But on this evening, I felt New York City worthy.  For the products I want to show you I did take "stock photos" but I decided to show these instead as my friend, a makeup artist, stated "I need to know what you're wearing, the warmth on your face and how the camera light bounces off of you, who did your makeup today??

haha!  I DID!! (if i let anyone else, that would be like cheating on a friend)

 photo NYC color-1_zpszqgbjmwx.jpg

Beauty on a budget: and thanks NYC New York Color for the pro look. 

No need for expensive contouring kits all I used here were the Smooth Skin BB Creme Instant Matte, Smooth Skin BB Creme Bronzed Radiance and Smooth Skin BB Perfecting Powder ($3.99 each) and ended up with smooth hydrating long-wearing and an effortless matte finish.  The bronzer added that extra ummph and glow.

Radiance Sapphire and Golden Champagne NYC New York Color Sparkle Eye Dust
and an old mascara.

Treat yourself to a pro-look without the pro-budget.
'Tis the season to shimmer and glow.

OPI Starlight Collection

**press sample **

"OPI Starlight brings a constellation of color to nails and toes just in time for the holidays! This new collection of 18 limited-edition nail lacquers ($9.50 each at Ulta.com) send style into the stratosphere with hues as glittery as the night sky, as deep as space itself, and as riveting as a romance written in the stars. They are also available in the GelColors formula!"

 photo OPI-1_Fotor_Collage_zpsvro5puq9.jpg   
I don't have to add as these pretties speak for themselves, as it is usual with OPI.  Here are my favorites in no particular order

The name of this shimmery purple hue is just like me, I'm in the Moon for Love, and it surely brings you to the moon and back as you stare at the sky purple shimmer. 

 photo OPI-1_zpsrzgpfrne.jpg

A holiday collection is not complete without the staple reds -

Ro-Man-ce on the Moon, a shimmery deep red sure to highlight the romance on any holiday date to the moon or whatever love may bring you on a given day or night ;) 

 photo OPI-2_zpsrdfqgdsz.jpg  

Love is in my Cards, although not on mine, this bright red carries you through any season.

 photo OPI-9_zps4vlcwdlx.jpg

and the classic vampy red, Guys & Galaxies, good luck with that one as for the color, it's a classic staple.

 photo OPI-4_zpslndmen3r.jpg

The next few, glistens and glitters:

Is This Star Taken?  The hardest to photograph and the easiest to love.  This is a gold-ish base with rainbow glitter bars.  If the star happens to be taken, try to join in and share in the love.  Do NOT miss out on this one.

 photo OPI-3_zps639oqudq.jpg

I Drive a SuperNova (silver) and Comer Closer (gold) are surely the ones to take you on an intergalactic polish trip together or independently.  

  photo OPI-12_zpsybryz3zu.jpg   photo OPI-11_zpszgp00otc.jpg

Super Star Status: Is THE super star of the collection,  A rich glitter polish with micro round silver glitter for added bling.  Use alone, layer or as a topper and shine!

 photo OPI-6_zpsbjhdkv9x.jpg 

Center of the You-niverse.  A classic charcoal, slightly textured with micro gold shimmer.

 photo OPI-5_zpsdxyvr1sp.jpg

Cosmo With a Twist:
It's a visit to the cosmos indeed.  Galaxy nails background? go ahead! 
The perfect night sky on a dreamy holiday night!

 photo OPI-7_zpsusyl4fxw.jpg  photo OPI-8_zpstfh30d5c.jpg

And drooool!!!!!! If I had the difficult task of having to choose one, I would pick Give Me Space.  Although the name and the shade makes this a nail polish oxymoron.  I can't get enough of this.  

 photo OPI-10_zps0r3fud35.jpg 

Stay tuned for more on this collection.
The collection is breath taking. 
What do you think??

Wine Down For That:  Need I describe?? I'm down for wine and for this red red wine, vampy shade with a coat  of Bring on the Bubbly (right) and just bring the wine, because the party is on!

Mix and Mingle:  Holiday party purple crelly companion.

Peppermint to Be : Season perfect and not your typical Christmas red with a beautiful shimmer.

 photo China Glaze Cheers-11_zps8bxc6pjz.jpg

Don't Get Elfed Up : You can't elf this beauty up, grab your bubbly drink and let the micro glitter shimmer.

 photo China Glaze Cheers-12_zpseb7zhi7k.jpg  

Son of a Nutcracker : My favorite name and shade.  It's a bright pink with redish hue.   Sure to spike up your "regular" holiday shades and spike up your eggnog while at it. ;) 

 photo China Glaze Cheers-7_zpsp4tbn038.jpg 

and lastly, Better Not Pout with a coat of Break the Ice.  Hot pink with a metallic finish and odd-sized glitter over a clear base.  Perfect pair? I'd say so.
