Christmas Tree Nails- How To

**May Contain Press Samples**
I have not done a quick tutorial for you guys in so long. I decided to bring it back for one of my favorite, easy holiday designs. It's perfect to dress up any nails and super easy to do! I started with a white base coat on an accent nail. Once my base coat dried, I taped it off. I did a v-shape outline for the edges of the tree. Next I used a skinnier tape to do a criss cross pattern down to the edge of the nail.  Once all of my tape was in place (as you can see it wasn't sticking for me), I added a green color on top of the tape. The area that I was doing my nails in was quite chilly so that is probably why all of my tape was curling. It's kind of important to do your nails in a warmer area so the polish and accessories work well with you.  Once you applied all of your green color, remove the tape. You will be left with a tree looking shape. Now you are ready to decorate!  This is where you get to be creative! You can add any color for the …

**Press Samples**
Finishing up this magnificent collection is 6 more beauties that are in the Party Girls collection. You will find that so many of these colors are perfect for both everyday work AND that after work party. Join in me in checking out the last 6 loves of Party Girls!
Ummm hey bubblegum pink. Kelsey is a gorgeous, muted pink that fits into any holiday collection. I love the brightness of this color and how it doesn't lean purple!
I really like that Zoya included this in their holiday collection. A bright color is much needed for any holiday manicure.

Zoya describes this as a deep aubergine cream. I love this color! I am a purple lover and this shade is perfect! Its almost like a lighter, redder plum. Eggplant would be the best match of a real world object I can describe an aubergine color.
I would use this pretty color pretty much all winter long through all my parties, too! I love the purple shade and I love how perfect it looks with my skin tone.


Sephora Play! November Box

**Bought It**
I literally fall in love with Sephora each time I get my box. I immediately want to and buy all the things. So, marketing team... props to you! This months box is pretty great and I can't wait to share with you what I thought. Survival of the Chillest is the theme! Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum This is a ultra hydrating serum with grape water concentrated to bring back the moisture you need in your skin. I have used this a couple of time with my nighttime routine and I have noticed a difference. I have made an effort to add an extra hydrating factor into my skin routine in the winter because dry skin for me = breakouts. Vinosource S.O.S. can be used morning and night, too. I do like this product, but I am still on the fence about purchasing a full size because I am a derma e lover.  Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara I actually loooooove this mascara! If you have ever read any of my other mascara posts, you will know …
