Festive NOTD;; Gilded Gradient Tips! ♥♥

Hey ladies and gents! In honour of the Christmas season rapidly descending upon us and the chill that's filling the air with anticipation of snow (that's actually going to stick around), I decided to break out one of my latest nail polish purchase for a fancy, festive nail look! Check it out:

I love this style, it's elegant, warm and sophisticated, yet it's really simple to do. Not as jazzy as my nails usually become by the time I'm done with them, but still dynamic in its simplicity. I'd say in real life the gold on the tips is quite a bit more prominent than in the photo.

Spread the Love Sundays! Blog of the Week;; Prettymaking! ♥♥

Hey all! In this blogging community, I think it's very important that we work with each other and share around some of the blogs that we truly enjoy reading. How else do we get to know about new people, right?

I've thus decided to create my first regular weekly blog post, Spread the Love Sundays, where I'll feature one beauty blogger a week that I love! This week, I'll be featuring...

New Hair, New You! ♥♥

I love getting a new hairstyle. It's almost like you're shedding that time with your old hair, like you're moving ahead with life and taking a new step that's different and exciting. My brother's girlfriend, Bex, is an amazing stylist and colorist... With her help yesterday, she gave me the perfect chocolate-cherry (thank you, Diane, for the apt description!) that I've been looking for for years, as well as a cut that looks good now, and I can tell, will look good later.

Look ma, it's red! =D

NOTD;; Frosty Tips! First Snow Inspired Gradient Nails! ♥♥

Hey gorgeous, how've you been?

It snowed for the first time this week in my town! I was so excited because it meant I got to wear my NEW BOOTS (Check out my first haul video if you wanna see them, they're beauties!), and it gave me a wonderful inspiration to do this gradient nail look! Check it out! (:

I'm really pleased with the outcome, even though the snow on the ground has already melted (typical), I've got snow on my nails!

Logos are for Billboards;; My Opinion on Fashion Branding.

This is just my opinion, you guys feel free to wear whatever you love.

(Something I drew a few years back, kind of the inspiration for this post)

If you go to your local mall, movie theatre, restaurant, high schools or what have you, chances are 7 out of 10 are wearing clothing that has evident branding displayed right across their chest. This is a subject I feel very strongly about. To me, this is just ridiculous. I'm not a billboard, I've purchased items of clothing to create my own look, not to advertise Hollister's.

NOTD;; When in Doubt... Polka Dots! ♥♥

This nail featured a lot of trial and error, but through perseverance and experimentation I have created what I feel is a great look! Check it out:

I love this colour combination, the purple and the orange really contrast and make each other look brighter.

NOTD;; Fuschocking! ♥♥

Hey all! Sorry for that disappearing act there. 
In case you didn't notice, I'm a magician.
But anyhow.

I'm back, with another NOTD! This time I wanted to do something that's become kind of a signature nail look of mine, two or three tones with white line detailing. I really like this colour combination, as well as the placement of the lines. Check it out!
