Hey BeautyCravers!!! So if you follow me on IG then you know that Nail Art is something I really love to do! I always get asked How do I do it? and What do I use? So I thought I'd Share about some of the things I use, and if you don't have certain tools, What Great Alternatives there are! Today we are gonna focus on Dotting Tools!
So Here are 2 kind of dotting tools that I own. After using other tools ( which we'll get to soon) I decided to look for some on Amazon, and I found them for $0.86 YES you read that correct 86 CENTS!!! If you keep looking every now and then you will find a deal like that, but regularly they are available for less than $2!!!!
The "Bundle Monster" tools, came in a Nail Kit I got for Christmas from my boyfriends family.
These wooden handles are a nice touch! But they do exactly as my amazon ones, so if you cant get your hands on these, don't worry! Now if you don't wanna purchase anything, and use things you may have at home....Here are some GREAT ALTERNATIVES...
Bundle Monster Kit
Starting with...A Toothpick!!!!
A LOT of my beginning nail art started with a toothpick believe it or not! You just have to find a surface that you can use to dip your toothpick in polish on. Typically I use a Plastic disc I have, or a folded sheet of paper. All I do is place a drop of polish on, and then take some on the tip of the toothpick. The more you take the bigger the dot. Also if you let the polish dry on the tip, it will hold a round shape that creates larger dots! You can dispose them or you can save them for future nail art! Even though I have dotting tools, I always seem to use a toothpick too!
Don't have a Toothpick? No worries!....
Bobby Pins have those rounded ends, so it's like they were made to be nail dotting tools! and they work awesome! Just like toothpicks I also used these quite a bit, and sometimes I still do. The only downside is how thin they are, so they can be kind of tricky to hold steadily, but after a while you will get used to it! They are double ended just like a regular dotting tool, so you can create different sizes for them. Do that by letting the polish dry on the tip.
Don't have Bobby Pins...? NO Worries!
YES Guys!!! I thought of this idea, tried it out, and BAM! it works! I used my Paddle brush because I noticed it has different sizes but any brush bristles will work!...If you have an older brush, even better! Because you can pull more than one and get a variety of dotting tools!
So Guys, What kind of Nail art will you be creating?? Make sure if you use any of these ideas, You tweet me or send me a pic on instagram of the look you created!! I hope you found this helpful! Any questions? Leave em down below or tweet me! Thanks for stopping by!

Today We will be going over my First Impression of Pur Minerals CC Cream!
Okay so I received this as Gratis after doing some training with one of the Pur Reps a couple months ago, and I am just barely getting around to trying it out!
Lets jump right in!
|OH do excuse my name blasted on it!|
|HELLO AMAZING PUMP!!!!!|
Pur Minerals CC CREAM
Retails for $38
Available in 4 Different Shades
ON THE BOX:
"This Matte, lightweight formula protects, perfects, and color-corrects with a revolutionary brightening moisturizer, age-defying primer and SPF 40 foundation all in one! Silicone-free."
So this wasn't enough for me, so I decided to check out the site for more info.
ON THE SITE:
"Your multitasking moisturizer, brightener, primer, concealer and SPF foundation! More than just another beauty balm, CC Cream with SPF 40 protects, corrects and perfects the skin’s appearance with clinically advanced plant-based ingredients, like DERMAPUR® HP—a clarifying corrective from meadowsweet—and CLARISKIN II®—a brightening powerhouse from wheat germ. Ideal for all skin types and concerns, this silicone-free formula works to erase brown spots, blemishes and fine lines from sight while balancing uneven skin tone."
Okay so I'm going to show some pics and then I will include my opinion on this product!
BEFORE CC CREAM:
|Didn't pick up too much on camera but I do have some blemishes around my jaw area.|
|As you can kinda see here my face is a little lighter than the rest of my body|
so I wasn't too alarmed by the shade.
Okay so I picked up mine in the shade TAN. Medium was a little light for me, so i just winged it and told them to give me TAN.
The color wasn't so bad at first, as you can see above. I took a little on my hand and did my face. and I noticed that on my hand it oxidized into a darker shade with a somewhat orange tint. ahhhh.
FULL FACE COMPLETE
|Looks a little dark here, but my face blends in with the rest of my body.|
|I set it with a lighter face powder and it made it look a little better.|
When I first pumped it on my hand i thought it was going to be thick, but it was so opposite of that. I was alarmed by the color, but it wasn't too bad. It set MATTE, and fast. It almost has a powder finish. I loveeee the way it felt!! It definitely covered my blemishes near my jaw line also. My skin felt and looked flawless. Also its sooo lightweight. And the best thing is that its long wearing! I touched up 1 TIME!!! and only because i felt shiny, but I didn't look shiny at all!
4 HOURS INTO WEAR
I think this product is AMAZING! I give it a well deserved 10/10!! Definitely a MUST TRY! I also think that $38 is a great price for 1.5oz and the great packaging. This is just an all around great product!
So that's it dolls! I hope you enjoyed this, and if you try out this CC CREAM let me know what you think. If you have any questions or comments leave them down below or tweet me!
DISCLAIMER: I Received this product as a GRATIS Award for participating in a training on the line, I was not asked to do a review, Nor am I being paid to this review. This is 100% MY honest opinion.
Thanks for stopping by guys!
