Grow Your Nails with Me Series

Hi Girls!

I get tons of questions about my nails so I decided to do a grow your nails with me series. It's on our new beauty, fashion, and style channel Brown Girls Style.  I am now on week 5. I didn't realize that I hadn't shared this information with you on the blog...duh!

The playlist of all 5 weeks is listed below. Each video includes tips and methods that I use to grow and care for my nails. I hope you enjoy it and I hope it answers all of the questions that I have received about my nails.

Rimmel London Eyeliner & Eye Makeup Remover Review

I received these products complimentary of Influenster to test and review!

My everyday look is eyeliner and lip gloss! These are my 2 must haves when it comes to makeup! When I saw that I have a new eyeliner to try, I was estatic!

Because I wear eyeliner almost everyday, the Rimmel Scandalyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner was the first item that I tried from my #frostyvoxbox!

This eyeliner goes on smoothly, doesn't smear, and I was surprised at how long it lasts. If you don't remove this liner, it will stay on all night while you sleep! It is Waterproof as stated!!

Because it does wear long, you MUST use some type of remover to get it off. I'm so glad that they included their Gentle Eye Makeup Remover in this box to try along with the eyeliner! I really needed it!

I used a cotton ball with a little bit of the remover to rub the eyeliner off. I would love to say that one rub does the job, but it doesn't. You have to rub your eyes several times for this liner to come off with this remover. It is very gentle meaning, it doesn't burn your eyes. It also works to remove eye shadow and brow liners. Since it states that it's for eye make up and I don't really wear foundation, I haven't tried using it to remove heavy makeup (foundation, concelear etc.)

Overall, I really like both products and will certainly keep a Rimmel Kohl Eyeliner in my makeup bag!


Influenster #FrostyVoxBox Unboxing

Last month, I received a VoxBox from Influenster. If you aren't familiar with Influenster you can watch this quick video about it on this post.

You can review my unboxing of the Frosty Vox Box on the video below.

*I received these items complimentary from Infuenster for testing purposes.*

I've had a few weeks to try just about all of the items in my box. Here's a list of the items that were in my box:

Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner
NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color
Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea
Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect ADVANCED
McCormick Gourmet All Natural Thyme
Fruit Vines Bites Cherry

I tried everything except the Boots No 7 and the Celestial Tea. Once I've tried these last 2 items, I'll do reviews on all of the items in the box.

If you like reviewing products, check out Influenster! It's free and easy to sign up to be apart of the fun!

Madam Glam Nail Polish Review

This is a high end line of polishes and cosmetics. I used 2 coats for all of the colors listed except for the So Nude. I used 4 coats of it because it is the same color as my natural nails.

I wore the polishes without a top coat and they lasted for one week with very little chipping. If these polishes are worn with a top coat I'm sure they well last way longer than a week with little to no chipping.

Each color is very rich, only took 2 coats, and dried very fast. I am very pleased with this line of polish and will be purchasing more very soon.

Here's the list of polishes that I reviewed in the video:

Hot Date
Perfect Harmony
So Nude
Mint Cocktail

Purchase the polishes at FREE shipping on $30 or more! And don't forget to use the codes in the picture above for 10%,25%, or 40% off!

This is my honest review of Madam Glam polishes. I was not paid to do this review, however Madam Glam did provide me with complimentary polishes.

Happy New Year Girlies!!

I know that we are on day 6 of 2015, but since I haven't blogged since last year, I wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year!

I haven't posted a new hairstyle in a few weeks because 1. I planned to take a little time off to spend with my family. AND 2. My daughter caught a really bad cold over the Christmas/New Year break so I didn't want her to have to deal with me doing hair and stuff. Plus her hair really needs to be washed bad and I didn't want to make her cold worse by washing it while she's sick.

I plan to wash it this weekend, IF and only IF, she isn't coughing anymore and I'm going to flat iron it so that she can get a trim. I haven't used any heat on her hair since Sept of last year so I will be looking forward to seeing how much growth we have achieved. I can tell it has grown out some.

I also wanted to let you know that I have started a NEW channel called Brown Girls Style! It took a lot of prayer for me to make the decision, but I wanted to keep Brown Girls Hair strictly dedicated to hair, but we also want to share our fashion, beauty, and a bit of our life stuff and I didn't want it to get lost on the hair channel so I went ahead and started a new channel.

For now, the new channel will show Tween fashion as well as beauty tips and just fun stuff with me and my daughter. I may even include some of our other family members from time to time.

Currently, I am doing a Grow Your Nails With Me Series since I have received tons of questions and request for videos on my nails, I'm doing that on our other channel. Check them out when you get a chance if you are interested in growing your natural nails.

I also plan to redo this blog really soon. I think I have chatted enough! I'll see you tomorrow! And be sure to follow our Brown Girl Style Instagram and subscribe to the channel too!

Thanks so much for your support!!
