This has been the year of the crackle polish. Another Polish brand jumps on the trend
CHERIMOYA 2012!!!!!!!!!! Comes in 24 Shades. The crackle works great and on top of that they’re only $2 bucks.
While these are great crackles I do have one big gripe
OMG please use these in a well ventilated area. While some have no odor at all, some smell absolutely horrible.
The formula on these polishes vary from color to color but once you get used to using them its a breeze!!!!!!
Thats all for today
So I decided to get my nails done because my real nails were breaking. The nail shop usually doesn’t have the colors I like so I just decided to start polishing the nails at home myself. This week it’s all about they greys.
On my nails I have:
KleanColor Polish in CHARCOAL
Milani holographic polish in HD
and a China Glaze crackle in Cracked Concrete
The KleanColor polish has to be one of my favorites ever. Can you believe it only took one coat to get that color pay off. As you can see I didn’t have the best lighting so the crackle looks funny but I promise it looks much better in person.
Thats all I have to say about that.
Have a blessed and productive weekend!!!!!!

So, Back in the beginning of february I decided to pre-order the china glaze crackles from transdesign.com. How happy am I that I did. The day they came out (either feb 14th or 15th) they were sold out. and they were only $3.20 each plus shipping. Everywhere else for what I saw wants atleast $4.99 each so I think I caught a good deal. These crackles are great. The first one I used was black mesh. The color breakdown of my dails is: Sally Hansend Purple potion, Milani Hi-res, and China Glaze Black Mesh. I am getting a fill-in soon so I will continue to update pics to this post when I use different colors!!!!!
Sally Hansens Deep Purple, Milani holo;hi-tech and digital, China Glaze fault line.
So, Welcome to my Blog. This blog used to be called “Detroit Urban Beauty” but I decided that it needed a change. I wanted to do this from a perspective that you don’t see a lot of. Instead of being just from a Detroiters perspective, it now has a more christian focus. When Shopping I find myself looking for what I like along with what is respectable. Many people think that in order to be fashionable you have to be half naked. I partially blame the media for that. The purpose of this blog is now to educate, inform, and enlighten you on everything a “Christian Fashionista” wants or needs to know. So check out the different tabs at the top and…………………..
Have a Blessed Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AS a budget shopper, I spend hours trying to find a good deal on things that are very expensive. I love thrift shops, I frequent the clearance racks, and coupons are my best friend. But there are things that are harder to find on sale like an iPad or the oh so popular Sigma Brushes. Well, this site allows you to blog for point or what they call “luuux $” and what you do is save those points up to buy luxury items from their “luuux shop”. They have all kinds of electronics like 2 different iPads, 2 different Macbook Pro’s , Digital cameras and just too much to name. If you’re not big on electronics they also have shoes and accessories, bags, clothes, and much more. There is even a LV bag. Now I dont know about anyone else but This is such a great deal. Check out some of my post and sign up. Hey it’s free so why not!!!!!!!!
So, I’m gonna leave you with this, Everybody says God knows My heart right? But how many of us know his?????
*Food for Thought*

Mac’s Mean & Green Polish which is apart of their Disney Villains Collection comes in 3 different irridescent shades. They are very pretty and dry quick but the question is, are they worth $13? I would have to say no. I like this polish, but after purchasing it and looking at it real good. I can find the same polish from brands like OPI or Sally Hansen for half the price or even cheaper. in all honesty I have yet to see a polish that is worth paying that much for. What is sad is that I would have considered keeping it if it had a disney character like most of the other stuff in the collection. That just goes to show how much packaging effects what people buy.
Have you seen a polish you would pay $13 or more for. If so let me know by leaving a comment below!!!!!!!!

Nails, Billions of dollars are spent each year on keeping up this one area of the body. you can get something as simple as a basic manicure to getting acrylic with fake tips to make your nails appear longer. Now you can even get colored acrylic instead of polish. Getting my nails done is a luxury that I enjoy. I somehow feel prettier after my nails are done. What I hated about getting them done is that when I took the nails off, eventually I nails would be weak and break. I really got tired of getting tips so I switched to a more expensive, but healthier way to get my nails done. Instead of getting acrylic I began getting Gel Nails formerly known as Glass Nails. The gel dries quicker but is softer than acrylic and allows your nails to breath which makes them healthier for your nails. The picture you see above is me with an Gel Overlay. what that means is that I don’t have on any false tips, they just put the gel straight on to my nails. the nails will be 4 weeks old come this wednesday and I will be getting them re-done. The pro & con for these nails for me is that they grow quickly. I say that because I like my nails to be a healthy length but not real long just because i do play a few instruments and having long nails can be a hinderance. All in all I say this way may be a lil more expensive but it is well worth it if you want healthy nails (especially if you have eczema) get gel nails instead of acrylic.
More tips to keep nails healthy:
- Buy Cuticle oil and use daily
- keep them clean
- get/give yourself a manicure every 10-14 days
