I had a really chill Christmas and birthday, just spent with my family. We pretty much went shopping all weekend long to take advantage of the sales.
Hope you all had a great Christmas!
What did you get??
I used L.A. Colors base coat, Pure Ice in Black Rage and L.A. Girl Diamond Strength top coat.
Now let's talk a little about cuticles...first here's what I use to care for them:
I think it's really important to take care of your cuticles because they prevent those little hangnails that form in the sides of your nails. If you've gotten one before then you know they can be painful especially removing them. Before I actually paint my nails I take some cuticle oil on a q-tip and apply it to each cuticle then massage it in for a few seconds. Then I take the metal cuticle pusher shown above and very gently push my cuticles back, I think this way is better than cutting them off you do have to do it often but I don't really mind. I also prefer the metal pusher to orange sticks just because it's reusable just sanitize and it's ready to go. During the week I always use cuticle cream (Thank you Linea!) just take a little bit and apply it, it keeps them soft. That's pretty much all I do. It just takes a few extra minutes and it's totally worth it!
How do you care for your cuticles? I would love to hear your tips!
It's extremely rare for me to go without eyeliner in my waterline because I always thought it made my eyes look "naked" without it but I think this look proved me wrong.
Excuse my eyebrows, I'm trying to grow them out so there's a few crazy hairs going on right now lol.

Let me know what you think!
Do you ever have those times when you're painting your nails and it seems to get all around the nail no matter how hard you try not to get it there? Well I used to always use q-tips to clean it up but I always found that they didn't allow me to get close enough to the nail to really get all the polish off. So now I use a brush instead, one that has synthetic bristles and is really small. I just dip it in a little acetone and clean everything up, it works so much better than q-tips and you also don't have to worry about cotton fibers getting on your polish either!
Do any of you do this already?
These cute purple booties are from kohl's they were a door buster for $12.99. They are so comfy, I love them! I just wish I would have got the other colors.
At Target I got some HK pens and highlighters from the dollar section and they had these deal packs on make up so I picked up a 2 pack of the Loreal Double Extend beauty tubes mascara for $9.99.
Also at Target I finally found this purse. It had to have been over a month ago Van posted a pic of this purse on Twitter and asked if she should get it but I was too late in replying, but ever since I wanted it so bad. I went to so many Target's and they never had it, so on Monday when I stopped by another one there it was. I had to have it!!
So there they are, I know only one thing was make up but I still wanted to share!
Did any of you ladies take advantage of the black Friday sales? Or did you opt for cyber Monday instead?
