I finally went to the shops to buy myself a nail art pen as well as ordering a few online which I cannot wait to get my hands on. In the mean time I couldn't wait to try out the models own nail art pen that  bought whilst I wait on my online order. It has two application ends, one a thin brush for making stripes  and the other a pen nib for making dots and precise lines. Before attempting to make any design with them I tested it my using the pen nib application first and I know it says on the packaging to place the lid firmly after use but silly old me and didn't do that so now no amount of liquid will pass through the nib, its such a bummer really. I am now stuck with just thin brush applicator option to make my designs. This is my first time actually using any art pen so my designs are a bit rusty at the moment but I will be hoping to get better at them as time goes on because like they say 'practice makes perfect'. Peep the nail art pen and nail varnish used below.

YouTube channel- KuiTips

I am now taking my style tips and looks over to YouTube; based off the recommendations from my close friends I have decided to set up my own youtube channel "KuiTips". I will be using my channel as a more interactive method of sharing my style tips, looks, bits about nails as well as other beauty items. I have to admit that I was pretty nervous about having my own Youtube channel and really putting myself out there but I've done it now and uploaded my first video which I have posted on here so do check it out. It's very much an introduction video to my channel but I hope you enjoy watching it all the same. Do share and like it.x

I love lipsticks and more importantly I love the matte look so when MAC released their retro matte collection, it was inevitable that I would get myself something from the collection. I tried a few of the lipsticks from the collection, 'all fired up', 'relentlessly red', 'fixed on drama' and 'flat out fabulous' and well lets just say I was immediately sold on flat out fabulous the minute I tried it on so thats what I ended up getting. The others didn't stand out too much for me so I didn't get them. I did buy 'flat out fabulous' along with 'more to love' pro longwear lip pencil also from the retro matte collection which I am wearing together in the pictures. Flat out fabulous stood out for me because of it's bright bold shade and I'm absolutely in love with it at the moment.

A Little Shape Guide

(photo courtesy:



During the course of last week, I suffered what I call a nail casualty hence my now short nails. For those of you that may not know, I refer to anything that takes away from the length of my nails as a nail casualty. With that being said last week I somehow managed to break part of my middle left finger off which meant I had to make the wise but not so favoured decision of cutting and filing down my other nails to match my middle finger. 

I go to great lengths to maintain the length of my nails so it's always a pain when something like this happens but it is always best to let it go and start all over again. These accidents are unavoidable and plus my nails will always grow back! There is no point in holding onto the other longer nails and having the one finger nail short, that is just not a good look in my eyes! It is always more presentable to have them all the same length whether that be long or short.

RiRi ♥'s MAC Fall Collection

(photo courtesy:

The Rihanna Hearts MAC Fall collection is on its way and I for one cannot wait.  It is the third of four collections from the Rihanna and MAC collaboration and it is due out in the US on 3rd October and internationally sometime in October too but the exact dates are yet to be confirmed. For those that dont live in the US like myself, we will just have to lurk about and wait patiently on a date. The fall/autumn collection is packed with a whole lot more than the summer collection with an assortment of makeup items from lipsticks, to eye lashes to makeup brushes and it al comes in a lovely rose gold packaging.  Peep the full collection below.
