MissCaseyB >> 10/01/2014 >>
Madam Glam is an amazing online nail lacquer company. They offer UV Gel polish, basic/regular nail polish as well as nail care like top and base coats, cuticle and protein treatments for your nails. They also offer nail wraps. 

Their basic polishes start at $8.95 and their UV Gel Polish is $17.95. Free shipping on orders over $25 or when you purchase three or more polishes. 

Below are some swatches of my favourite Madam Glam polishes. 

Girls Night Out -
Pretty coral-pink with golden shimmer undertones. Super bright! Definitely one of my favourites of the bunch! So so pretty! Perfect for a pedicure as well! This one requires two to three coats for full opacity but, as with most of the formulas, it dries really quickly.

Cherry Blossom -
A creme bubblegum pink! The most pretty Barbie Doll pink you can imagine! This one only requires at most two coats. One almost does it! Most of my polish collection is made up of pink shades and this one is up there for best shade.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

MissCaseyB >> 9/01/2014 >>
Sally Hansen has come out with a new amazing innovation for nail care.  Miracle Gel is a two-step, no lamp gel for your nails. It provides up to 14 days of colour and shine while still being easy to remove. With over 45 shades to choose from, you are sure to find one that matches your mood and style. 

Step One is to apply two coats of the Miracle Gel colour. The amazing thing about it is that it has a base coat built right in! 

Step Two is to apply one coat of Miracle Gel Top Coat. That's it! No light needed. 

I used the colour "Pink Tank." This colour is my absolute favourite shade of pink . It is such a strong bold colour and the gel texture really adds just that something extra. It truly looks like professional gel without the cost of going to a salon or the need to purchase all the lighting, and other Gel products and accessories. Which makes it not only affordable but convenient.  

The Miracle Gel Top Coat and Colour can be purchased together, or separately. They can be found wherever Sally Hansen products are sold and  cost $14.99

Here are some new summer shades from Nicole by OPI that are perfect to add some summertime flare! They have launched a new mini-polish collection for summer called "Seize the Summer." This new collection, comes in four fabulous bright colours: Lay it on the Lime, The Coral of the Story, LeaPink for Joy, and Shaved Nice.

Lay it on the Lime is a cool toned creme lime green. Not neon green, not mint. Somewhere lost in between this gorgeous colour was born. Very noticeable on the fingers however it did require three coats. This is my favourite polish from the collection!

Foundation 101

MissCaseyB >> 3/24/2014 >>
Foundation Tips and Tricks

Foundation should be used to enhance your skin, not cover it up. In fact, I don't like when people interchange the word "Foundation" with "Cover-Up." You shouldn't be "covering up" your beauty, but rather providing a flawless foundation for the rest of your application.

The right foundation should disappear when blended onto your skin. It is meant to even out our skin tones and to give the 
appearance of a flawless complexion. It should never look or feel like a mask. 

If your skin has a lot of oil, acne, scars or fine lines, you can apply a foundation primer first. It helps foundation glide on smoothly and keeps it from seeping into pores or wrinkles. It also helps foundation last longer as it gives it something to hold on to. I really like to use the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer on both myself, as well as my clients

What you use to apply your foundation will remain up to you. Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to tools, formulas, etc. Test some different options out and you will be able to choose one that works best for you. Below I have listed some tips that will help you when selecting the right shade, formula and tools.
