A very long absence.

It was only due to an assignment for a class I am currently taking that I even remember this blog exists. So many years and so much has happened between the time this blog was created and today.

I am now twenty-two years old. I never pursued cosmetology as a career after schooling, but I still find it a fun hobby. I still own too much nail polish to count.

It might seem strange to some that I went from pursing doing hair for a living to currently seeking a degree in web design, but both things are passions of mine. They are even similar in some ways. Both allow me to express my creativity and involve creating styles for clients. I am able to express myself and create something unique and special for every project or client.

Who knows if I will take blogging up as a full time passion. Between school, work, and a relationship some things tend to get forgotten about. Sometimes for up to even three years. Rediscovering this blog has been a great little peek back in time.

Even though the hopes and dreams I had as a nineteen year old have changed more than just a little, I am still full of new hopes and dreams for the future.

31 Day Challenge - Day 3 Yellow!

Hello darlings, today I discovered a new love in my life - yellow polish! I have had this Sally Hansen polish in my collection for the longest time, but I had always skipped over it for other colors. Since the inspiration for today was none other than the color yellow, I finally decided to reach for it. And I'm so glad that I did! I just absolutely love how these dandelion nails turned out.

31 Day Challenge - Day 2 Orange!

Hello lovely followers! I had so much fun with this challenge yesterday, that I could not wait to undo all my work and start over again for today. Something tells me I am going to need to stock up on nail polish remover if I am going to be changing my nails each day. 

Anyways, onto today's manicure! I was feeling inspired by one of my favorite orange things - tigers! So I present to you my first attempt at tiger stripes. These nails were so easy to do, and I just cannot wait to show them off when I go out today!

31 Day Challenge - Day 1 Red!

Today I will be starting a series that may be familiar to those of you who follow the nail polish community, the 31 day nail challenge! I have always been a fan of seeing other bloggers post their nails everyday so I am extra excited to finally take part in the challenge myself.

The inspiration for today's post is red. I chose to try out a technique that I have never done before, the jelly sandwich. For those of you who have no idea what on earth a jelly sandwich has to do with nail polish, it is simply a term used to describe the process of placing a layer of glitter polish between two layers of a sheer "jelly" polish.

Tutorial - Jigglypuff Nails!

Hey there lovelies, today is a new day and I have an exciting new post for you all. While trying to think of an inspiration for this post, I thought back to one of my favorite manicures I have ever done - Pokeballs (shhh, don't tell but there might be a revamp of these very, very soon)! With Pokemon in mind, I decided to try out my very first tutorial dedicated to the cutest pink Pokemon of them all, Jigglypuff!

Red lips with a gradient twist!

As my very first actual content post, I present to you a look that I have seen several times but never tried out myself - gradient lips! This look turned out to be super simple to create and got me lots of compliments on a night out. 

Here's a list of the products I used for my lips:
   • Homemade Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub Treatment
   • L'Oreal Infallible Lipstick in Target Red
   • Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Blackout

And here's a list of the products I used for the rest of my face:
   • Tarte Clean Slate Poreless Primer
   • Revlon Colorstay for Combo/Oily Skin in 110 Ivory
   • Sonia Kashuk Blush in 14 Pink
   • NYC Bronzer in Sunny
   • Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
   • Urban Decay Primer Potion
   • L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Sultry Smoke
   • Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Liner in Perversion
   • Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara

The particular red that I used is only sold at Target stores I believe, but your favorite red lipstick will work just fine.

Hello lovelies!

This blog has been an idea of mine for quite a long time now, but I have finally decided to stop putting it aside and make it a reality. I will be posting all sorts of random mutterings about things related to beauty, be it hair, nail polish, makeup, or what say you.

So I'll just do a short little introduction to start things off. My name is Teddi and I am a nineteen year old cosmetology student. I love everything related to making yourself look your best, so why not go to school to do what I love for a living? My collection of nail polish is ridiculous, but still nothing compared to the massive amounts of makeup that I own and play around with. I currently live in Phoenix, Arizona and I absolutely adore the desert. I also adore dogs and cats and other furry creatures.

And that's about that. Stay tuned for more content and feel free to comment on what sort of posts you would like to see in the future.
