Pop Art Spring Nails

Yay, Spring is here! It’s been way too long since I’ve done a fancy-pants design on my nails so I grabbed my tools and went to work: 
Left Hand

Right Hand (sorry for the smudge on Pinkie)
This was SO fun and easy to do! I really love the tangy orange. It’s still a pastel, so it’s not an irritatingly bitter looking orange. Pastels are going to be huge this spring, so grab yourself a bottle of pastel orange and even a minty-seafoam green. Bring on the allergies, Mother Nature! (Can you tell I am ready for winter to be over?)
Products Used: 

Pop Beauty Nail Glam polish in Tangerine Taste
Milani Black Magic
China Glaze White on White
A bobby pin (for the dotting)
Striper brush

Sindulge at Culver Hotel

On Wednesday evening I attended Sindulge‘s event at the historic Culver Hotel. Sindulge is a great new website that sends you a selection of luxury samples for $12 a month. What’s really cool is that they also offer personalized consultations via video and text chat with an expert staff of makeup artists and beauty experts! When I asked Ami Desai, Sindulge makeup expert, what set Sindulge apart from other “swag bag-a-month” companies, she informed me that every monthly sample bag is different for each customer, depending on their skin type and style needs, which will be determined after speaking with the customer via video and texts. Cool, right?! I wasn’t able to take photos of everyone who was there, but I met SO many awesome ladies and gents who genuinely were nice people and loved all things-beauty. Here are some of the highlights of the evening….

How cute was the little swag bag? 

Youngblood Cosmetics, a mineral makeup company was there with all their new products

I was in love with the upstairs bar area at Culver Hotel- so fun to shoot!
I absolutely adored this detailed column

Apparently, we all love small, quilted purses with gold chains. LOL!
