Valentine's Day Collaboration with @swatchandlearn, Smokey Pink Sparkle Look 1/16/16

Hi guys!  Mary with and @swatchandlearn on Instagram and Twitter has teamed up with me to show you all a fun new Valentine's Day manicure and makeup combination look.  I am so honored that Mary was willing to team up with me again.  Her blog is by far the best I have read in the nails world.  She's informative, unbiased, honest, and just a joy to read.  She is a classy lady and her writing speaks volumes about the type of person she is.  I am so happy to have her in my life and even more so to call her my friend.  Mary, you're amazing and I am constantly blown away by your work and endless talent.  This manicure is exceptional.  It's beautiful, fun and vibrant.  Thank you for sharing your talent with me and with us all.

On another note, I received my Urban Decay Cosmetics collaboration with Gwen Stefani product order and I was dying to try them out.  I will honestly confess I hadn't planned to pick up anything from this collection as I am determined to use my collection.  However, my friend Tina, who I have written about before, posted a YouTube video on the entire collection.  Can I just say... she looked stunning in all the shades.  Of course, I had to at least get something in hopes I can look even half as good as she did.  By the time I was able to get home and order, most of the collection was sold out, sadly.  The good news is I was able to order the shades that I was really wanting.  It was such a positive shipping experience, I must add.  The items were ordered and received within the same week.  That never happens.  For this look, I tried out the 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ex-Girlfriend.  Let me tell you, I am in love with this liner.  I love the color and the formula.  This was my first time trying out the Urban Decay lip pencils and I was very impressed.  I hope to add more to my collection in the future.
