Hot Designs Nail Art Pens

hot designs nail art pen basic beauty

 

I love all the fun nail art I see but I always figure my hands weren’t steady enough to give it a go. I have a hard time just keeping regular polish on my nail and not all over the tips of my fingers. I had the chance to check out Hot Designs Nail Art Pens and they are a lot of fun!

I reviewed the Basic Beauty collection which is 3 wands with 6 colors total. Each pen has a color on both sides an you can brush the color on with a typical nail polish brush or use the little pin tip to create nail art with your pen. I thought the pen tip was really easy to use and I was surprised how easy it was to make designs.  When I used the color as a main polish I found it chipped really quickly but the pent tips are so great I can use a different polish and use this strictly for the pen tip for creating designs.

I was able to create some cute hearts, polka dots and write my daughters name on her nails. Still practicing my hand so I can move up to more intricate art but I am having fun. This would be a great gift for any girl on your shopping list.

Selena Gomez at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards: Get The Look with John Frieda Hair Care‏

Teen Choice Awards 2014 - Arrivals

INSPIRATION: Selena’s very tailored Saint Laurent suit

GET THE LOOK: This look “weaves confident, youthful, sexy, a hint of bold, but still very sweet,” said celebrity stylist Lona Vigi

  • To start, Vigi misted Selena’s hair with an Evian atomizer in order to prep her hair and keep it in the cleanest condition.
  • Next, she applied a dime sized amount of the John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Six Effects Serum into her hands, and rubbed them together before going into Selena’s hair, starting at the roots and pulling all the way to the ends. “This serum is like a BB Cream for the hair,” said Vigi. “It covers so many vital bases that you end up using multiple products for, instead you can cut all of that out of the equation and just have this one master product.”
  • In the front, Vigi sprayed John Frieda Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray while the hair was still damp in order to keep all the little baby hairs around the frame of the face tamed down.
  • Then, while blowing drying on a medium heat with the Harry Josh Pro Tools Dryer, Vigi sprayed the hair continuously to ensure the hair stayed back into the ponytail.
  • Next Vigi clipped the hair up and took super small sections and went over them with a flat iron, getting as close to the scalp as possible.
  • Vigi created a center part and then gathered Selena’s hair by the nape of her neck to create the ponytail. Once it was secure, she patted John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Creme into the ponytail so that it looked extra strong and shiny. “We wanted the ponytail to be the accessory to her look,” said Vigi.
  • As a final touch, Lona secured the ponytail with a long, black ribbon.

The caring coconut scent is beautiful and I love that is absorbs right away and doesn’t  mark up my clothes. The best part no matter how hot it is outside or what kind of workout I am doing  my underarms stay fresh smelling and dry. And after just a few days I noticed my underarms were much smoother, and I don’t feel like I need to shave as often to stay smooth. Love it!

With your new smooth underarms you will want to get the most out of all your cute sleeveless looks. Check out these tips summer styling tips/tricks from celebrity fashion stylist, Erin Walsh.

  • Trapeze cut shirts and dresses look great on every body type and are great for the summer season. Pair your top with a cropped pant that accentuates the smallest part of your ankle and a little heel – even 1 inch is perfect!
  • An all-white look or mixed neutrals looks great on everyone. Every woman should own a nice white blouse. It’s a piece that will never go out of style, and also make you look put together.
  • Dual-purpose items are perfect for the summertime. I love boxy sleeveless shirts that hit around the hip bone. They are a throwback to the ‘60s, and are great to wear with a cute pair of cropped jeans or perfect to throw over a bathing suit at the beach. I am also a big fan of sleeveless shirt dresses and halter tops because they look great on everyone and can be dressed up or dressed down!
  • I’m not sure there are any dos and don’ts to wearing sleeveless. You can’t dictate style to someone. It’s really more about how the individual wears an item. Every fabric hangs differently and every silhouette fits differently. When you choose a sleeveless style, it should project confidence in your body stature and posture.
  • For petite women who would like to create the appearance of more broad, square shoulders, it would be better to wear a sleeveless top that highlights the collarbone. Cap sleeves can also do this for petite women. If a woman has broader shoulders, I would recommend a strapless cut.
  • It’s definitely better to wear loose clothing in the summer. In addition, fabrics like silk, cotton, and linen are key for this season. It’s also important to think about undergarments, too. You don’t want to be wearing a lot of layers when it’s super-hot outside!
  • Lightweight cardigans and summer scarves are my best friend during this season. I always have them with me when I am traveling. I prefer to buy them in semi-neutral colors, such as ivory.
  • Some classic summer staples that every woman should have in her wardrobe are: a crisp white blouse, a lightweight summer scarf (I like neutral colors), and a sundress that isn’t too tight fitting. I am also a big fan of Greek/Bohemian inspired sandals – such a fun way to add style to your look this summer season!
