NOTD: Ruby Red Pumps, Stars & Bling

Just in case you haven't noticed yet... I love shinny things on my nails LOL. I used to be all about the glitter, the more the merrier. I even tried different shapes and sizes. Lately however, I have been drawn to crystal nail art. So when I got a new shipment of nail art crystals from Amazing Shine (available at the boutique btw) I had to go for a full on crystal feature nail...


In the pictures above I'm wearing 2 coats of "Ruby Red Pumps"  polish from China Glaze on all fingers but my index finger. I left my Index finger polish free. Instead i applied a coat of UV gel, placed the crystals and stars in the gel and cured it in a UV lamp for 2mins to seal them in place. You can also apply nail art crystals with nail glue.

The results... a shiny red manicure with a crystal feature nail...LOVE! 

Are you a nail art fan? Have you tried nail art crystals?

Adanma's Birthday Makeover

Lagos, April 3rd 2015.


I made Ada come in for a makeover on her way to her birthday dinner. Yes you read right " I made her" because I gave her no choice in the matter LOL. We always have a great time when she stops by as you will see in the video we could not stop talking and laughing (even when I was lining her lips)

For this look we wanted something glam because it was her birthday but didn't want to go over board. I chose neutral eyes for her with an extended defined crease to make her eyes look bigger. We paired it with soft nude lips to tone the look down a little.

Vogue UK!!!

Good morning everyone,

Guess who is in Vogue UK!!!

Ok, so technically I'm not in it but my client is, therefore my work is and so by association – I'm in Vogue UK! There is even a little paragraph about me! *squeal

A while ago I got the call to do makeup for one of my favourite clients  Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, for a photo shoot to be published in Vogue UK. Why is she one of my favourites you ask? Because she is an enormous inspiration to me. I always leave her feeling like I can achieve anything (walking on air and flying included) LOL. Not because she gave a big talk while I was on the job or anything but simply from her being her.

Below are her photos as seen in Vogue UK April 2015 Edition, here is a link to a snippet of her interview. For the rest go grab a copy!
