Cosmic Night Sky Manicure ♥ NOTD (Nails of the Day)

I haven't polished my nails in so long!  Well, with color that is.  Instead, I was focusing on growing my nails out after breaking two of them (including one nail who's nail polish decided to chip).  Other than that, my manicure is lasting well and I'm hoping it will make it through my next wash day for my hair.

This manicure was easy to do since I began with a black glitter nail polish as the base.  Usually, I combine layers of different glitter polishes to create a similar effect.  Below is a list of the products I used.

Base Coat:  Salon Sciences Instant Artificials Protect [1 coat]

1st Polish:  Pure Ice, 1014 Private Show [2 coats]

2nd Polish:  Wet n Wild Fast Dry, glitter polish name not listed on bottle [1 coat]

Top Coat:  OPI Matte Top Coat, 4338011 [1 coat]

Once seeing my manicure in motion, I chose a name for my nails this week:  Cosmic Night Sky.

Thanks for reading and watching!  See you in my next post. ♥

Casual OOTD Jewelry: Tribal Earrings (Video)

Tribal Earrings

Statement pieces are a big part of casual outfits for me.  In this outfit, I wore a new pair of dangle earrings to add something interesting to my look.

In the outfit below, I chose a gold necklace as the statement piece.  Whenever the outfit itself is low-key, I add something that will stand out from the outfit as a whole.

Tribal Earrings

One of my favorite accessories is earrings!  I often use them as a statement piece.  Within the past few months, I've added more earrings to my ever growing collection.  I kept my outfit simple but added flare with my jewelry and accessories.

This pair of tribal earrings added flare and interest to my look.  I paired them with miniature post earrings of various colors (my go to when I want something simple for the other piercings in my ears).  I can't wait to share more of my new jewelry!  See you in my next post. ♥

Cute & Sporty OOTD

This Outfit of the Day unintentionally matches my blog. :)

When I have a lot of errands to run, I tend to lean towards a comfortable pair of pants, casual shoes, and a graphic t-shirt.  In this outfit, I wore one of my favorite pair of athletic sneakers and a MGM Grand tee that is a gift from my mom.  I pulled my hair back off my face and I was ready to go!

See you in my next post! ♥

3 Year Loc Journey Anniversary! - New Hair Color!

Eeee!  I'm super excited because my locs are officially 3 years (and one month lol) old!  My annual celebration consists of coloring my hair.

Following my 1 year loc anniversary, I colored my tips.  After my 2 year loc anniversary, I colored above my colored tips from the previous year.  And this year, to celebrate my 3 year loc anniversary, I colored my hair starting from the most recently locked part of my locs down to last year's color. =)

My hair has grown so much over the past year.  I'm excited to continue my natural hair journey / loc journey / length journey.  See you in my next post! ♥

Locs Length Check Update: 6-1-15

Exactly a month ago, I took photos for my most recent length check during my loc journey.  Caring for my hair is much easier now; I have products that I love and that I know work great for me and my lifestyle.  The bummer is that my Eczema is really bothering me!  This restricts styling options since I shampoo my scalp frequently and more than anything, it is just absolutely uncomfortable!

On a lighter note, my loc journey is coming along.  My hair is closer to bra strap length than ever before.  In the past, I always trimmed my hair once it grew to the length it is now.

Coming up in my next blog post will be my recent hair color!  Each year, to celebrate my loc anniversary, I color my hair.  This year, I colored the hair that grew in over the past year and I absolutely love it!  Every few months (three to four months) I plan to do length checks.  There are more style related posts coming soon! ♥
