We’ve all been there (some of us this very Monday), whether it’s missing your alarm, snoozing too many times or staying up too late the night before. Whatever the issue, you have only 10 minutes to get out the door and hopefully look great doing it. Don’t worry, we got you covered! Keep reading to learn five simple tips to help you look flawless quickly.
With spring right around the corner and St. Patrick’s Day coming up, what better way to polish up your nail painting skills than with some festive, Irish-themed nails? If you’re a beginner, don’t worry. These designs are easy enough to conquer and you have the luck of the Irish in you!
For the first design, we’re going to start out with the basics. What’s St. Patrick’s Day without some shamrocks? For the base, choose any light nail polish of your choice and apply one or two layers. I prefer CHANEL’s “Frenzy”. Then, take either a tooth pick or dotting tool with any green polish to make the clover. Apply topcoat.
For this look, apply two layers of green polish. I love Butter LONDON’s Sozzled since it’s such a beautiful green. I can’t find anything like it! Then, apply a green glitter polish onto your ring finger and using the skills you learned in the first look, add a few silver shamrocks onto your middle finger. Apply topcoat.
For the third and final look, take green, white and gold nail polish and paint accordingly. I am loving Sephora by OPI Only Gold for me at the moment. Use a striper brush to paint horizontal lines on your index finger. To make is easier, place your hand on a table and then move your finger slowly, keeping the brush still. Then, add a four-leaf clover at the tip and apply topcoat and Voila!
Hope you like these designs! Let us know if you try any of these shamrockin’ looks!
Product Description: Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner allows you to create a bold & graphic eyeliner look with more control than a traditional liquid liner. This pen style liner with a fine brush tip applicator makes it suitable for both pros and beginners.
Packaging: I love the simple yet effective packaging for this product. The pressure suction cap keeps the eyeliner from prematurely drying out, making it last much longer.
Experience: This liner has been my Holy Grail liner for the past year and half. Through this long period of time, id like to think I’ve gone through it all with this liner- both the good and the bad. Let me tell you the good out ways the bad. Let’s start with the bad; the list is short so this shouldn’t take too long. For one, there isn’t too much product in the pen. I go through one of these bad boys in a couple months. I use it around 3-4 out of the 7 days in a week and by the end of 3 months it’s already running low. The only other negative is the steep price. Compared to other 10-15 pen style liners, coming at $20, this liner is definitely an investment. Now lets talk about all the great things this product has to offer. The color payoff is AMAZING. With one swipe it’s as dark as it needs to be. I don’t find myself constantly needing to layer product, which means my job gets done a lot quicker. Also, the fine brush tip applicator allows me to create really clean graphic lines with very little effort. Another amazing feature is how fast this product dries. There’s nothing worse than doing your liner and then accidently smudging it. Thankfully I’ve never had that problem with this liner. When it’s on it’s on. That’s not to say you can’t fix those tiny mistakes with a Q-tip and some water. The last thing would be the super trendy vinyl finish this product has. Some liquid liners tend to dry with a powdery matte finish that looks similar to heavily packed-on eye shadow. However, this liner keeps that semi-wet and shiny look all day long with a dramatic and eye-catching vinyl finish.

March is finally here, which means winter officially ends on the 19th. Though it may be hard to believe considering the snow and low temperatures still going, the truth is winter coats and essentials will soon be moved out of the closets. With spring right around the corner, it’s time to get your wardrobes ready with the latest spring 2015 trends. Below are 6 key trends for spring 2015 to refresh and revive your wardrobe from winter.
1) Gingham: Sometimes thought of as “the picnic tablecloth pattern” is a huge trend this spring season. It was seen in all different shapes and colors on multiple runways.
2) The Boyfriend Trench: Spring comes with cool breezes here and there so having a lightweight trench coat will be essential to keeping you warm, but comfortable. This season the trench gets “updated” by moving towards a loose fitted silhouette for the spring.
3) Wide-Leg Pants: Bringing back 70s inspired wide-cut pants for spring is in. These pants are very versatile and can be dressed down for the daytime with a simple shirt or dressed up for night with heels and a blouse.
4) Platforms: Platform shoes have reached new heights from the days these shoes were made popular by the Spice Girls. From sneakers to sandals, anything with a platform will be seen all throughout this spring.
5) Mules: Not to be outdone by the platform, mules are also having a serious comeback. Trendy mule style shoes were also seen all over the runway for spring 15. The mule can be worn with both casual and elegant outfits depending on the style of the look.
6) Fringe: Over the years spring and “boho chic” have seen to become synonymous thanks to the surge in festival fashion. Fringe is back (although it kinda never left). Whether it’s on your jacket, skirt, and even shoes, fringe is a spring essential to have this year.
