Chic Print For nails

One set of Chic Print for Nails contains 16 nail patches of varying widths, for a one-time application to fingers or toes. The nail patch is a solid-film material with an adhesive back that is activated by friction. The warmth from friction creates conform ability, allowing the patch to fit over the compound curves of your nails and seal onto the nail bed. The patent-pending material removes easily by rubbing and peeling off.

"LUST" Rock & Republic Blush

A few weeks ago after reading Jen's blog (frmheadtotoe) about Rock Republic Blush. I was sold. I wanted to try this blush out and see why Jen loves it so much. So, I was lucky enough when Hautelook happened to have an event sale on the Rock & Republic Contrived Pressed Blushes. There were so many blushes on sale at the time. However, I only bought one, which is Lust. I wish I could've bought more. I don't know what I was thinking. I hope Hautelook brings it back again. I would buy all of the Rock & Republic blushes. Lol.
 If you don't know, HauteLook is a premier members-only site that offers private, limited-time sale events on the world's best brands. It is free to join and everyone is welcome. There are no commitments or charges for membership. Why pay full price when you can pay half or less. To join click Hautelook.
Rock & Republic blushes are retail for $40 each. I got mine from Hautelook for $20. I think It is a great deal for such great quality blushes. It is super pigmented, long lasting, naughty names, and the packaging is a plus. ;)
 I don't think I've ever used anything comparable. The texture is very finely milled and it applies and blends easily, but start with the tiniest, tiniest amount. Because a little goes a long way, you don't want to overdo your blush since It is extremely pigmented. A fiber optic brush is almost a must for this product. It wears all day without fading. I think this is a very high-quality product.

It came with this cool case. 

R & R blush in Lust. It is a sparkly red with gold,  weighing in at .32 oz.
The color is very close to Nars Lovejoy.

DSK Model Entry

Hi Everyone,

My name is Leang La. Yes! my last name is La like a music note.  I'm 21 this year, Chinkbodian ( chinese and cambodian).I grew up in cambodia, moved to Utah when I was 13 years old. I'm currently attending Salt Lake Community College in Utah. I love anything creative but photography is my favorite(and also a huge supporter of Canon). Photography is a recent and lovely hobby for me. Every time I take a new shot is a learning process to achieve something that I haven't found. I also love going on adventures into the unknown. Even though, I'm scared to death  however I'm still down for it. I also have a blog-spot(, I'm a newbie to the blogging world. I usually blog about wide range of different categories: beauty related, movies, nails, or just random. I'm hoping through my blog I can inspire and learn from others as well as they can learn from me.

Why I want to represent DSK....

 I first discovered DSK Jewelry from Bubbi. I saw the first DSK piece in her Threading basic youtube video. At that moment I saw the Swarovski necklace, I just immediately fell in love with it. From then on, I was addicted to DSK Jewelry.  Every piece is unique, hand crafted, and made with love.  I was constantly talking about DSK Jewelry to my friends, boyfriend/family, and even strangers. I'm just an ordinary girl that isn't perfect, I have flaws, but I have a big heart. I would really love to be the next DSK Jewelry Model because It would truly be an honored to be a part of the DSK family, and learn along as the DSK evolve. I'll give my 100% dedication to represent DSK brand to the fullest. I'm hoping you will give me a chance, and have trust in me, and believe in me that I am worthy of becoming the next DSK Jewelry Model.

Below is my fruit inspired nail design. I went to my aunt's house today and we ate watermelons. That was when I got the idea to do this nail design. Silly me right? It is not perfect, but i tried. :) oh excuse my dry cuticles. I don't know why, but my hands have been very dry lately. It sucks. Anyone knows of a good product I could try?

These are the nail polishes that i used.
From the left: Seche Clear Base coat. OPI Italian Love Affair, Sally hansen Lime Lights, Sally Hansen Emerald City, Konad solid black, Seche Vite Top Coat.

Thanks for stopping by :)

 thumbs up for the cool watermelon pics. ;)
