My nails have been growing like crazy the past few months and, surprisingly, haven’t chipped or broken at all. They were getting out of control, so I decided to chop them off.
My attempt at keeping the almond shape with a shorter length was a bit of a failure, so I chose to reshape them and go back to my classic square nails. A few minutes later, after staring at my horrifically short-looking nails, I started painting some freehand stripes to give the illusion of more length. I’m quite pleased with the outcome.

One of my assignments in class was to create a makeup look that is inspired by or complements an accessory. Each of us brought in accessories, placed them all in a bag and then blindly pulled one out. I pulled out a floral headband, which reminded me of an angel, so I set forth to create an angelic makeup look.
I used very light, shimmery eyeshadow and kept the brows as natural looking as possible. I wanted to create an intense glow, as if from a halo, so I used plenty of highlighter on the cheekbones, nose and forehead, and light pink blush on the cheeks. I also used a nude-pink lip liner with a silver gloss on top.
