NOTD- Mannequin Hands!

I have a seriously intense nail polish obsession at the moment, so you will probably be seeing many more nails of the day in the future. I also love the "glitter nail" (a la Lorraine, or thecurrentcustom) Today I have on OPI Samoan sand and China Glaze Cleopatra as the glitter nail! I LOVE this combo, its neutral, classy, and the glitter nail adds some fun too!
Samoan Sand is a great "mannequin hands" color for nw 15/20 skin tones, right now I am probably more around nw 30, It doesn't match my skin tone exactly, but it's still very pretty!

oh and next time I will take a picture of the nail polish too
(couldn't find it)
Hope you all liked this!

Love, Nikki

Hello Beauties!
So, this is my first time EVER writing a blog.. I am not a very good writer (or good with computers for that matter), but I wanted to start a blog where I can talk (or write) about anything I want! This blog will probably be mostly beauty related with the occasional random post.
I have a beauty channel on YouTube, here is the link:
the best way to contact me is definitely through my YouTube channel.

I'm sure most of you have never watched my videos, so here is a little bit about me..
(Warning, most of these are pretty random)
My name is Nikki
I am obsessed with a lot of things..
mostly makeup
but most recently, nail polish (I will probably be doing swatches on here too)
I'm 18
I graduated High School this past year
I plan on going to Cosmetology school some time next year..
I want to do some traveling before then
I have wanted to be a makeup artist since I was ten
My ultimate life goal would be to do makeup for celebrities/ red carpet events
Lets get a little more personal..
My parents are divorced (since I was about 3 actually)
I live with my mom
My dad lives in Israel
I have never been, but plan on going sometime in October
I have a younger brother, he is 16
we don't get along.
I hate to admit it, but I don't have my license, mostly because I'm scared
speaking of being scared, I HATE scary movies
I only do chick flicks and romantic comedies
I love to read
mostly teenage books (Gossip Girl, Private, Pretty Little Liars)
I watch way too much tv, some faves are..
Gossip Girl
Vampire Diaries
Pretty Little Liars
too many others to name..
I'm the biggest procrastinator (YouTube certainly doesn't help that problem)
I'm living with my aunt for the summer
nannying for my 3 year old cousin
who now has a little sister (2 weeks today)
I'm leaving in a week to go home
The only reason I'm looking forward to that, is so I can Re-organize my makeup collection
lol I'm a loser
and an organizing freak.

I hope you enjoyed that!

My first actual post will be about my favorite makeup looks from the Emmy's!
(coming very soon)
Feel free to request any blog posts you would like to see!

Love, Nikki
