Hair, Nail and Outfit of the Day!

I was feeling this entire look so I decided to photograph everything!  My hair looks so thick (I think its the illusion of the braidout + being 7 weeks post), I went a little more dramatic on the makeup, my nails look like they were professionally done and I felt kinda chic in this cute lil dress from the Loft.

The hair – 5 cornrow braidout, half up with an EZ Comb

 I love my EZ Combs!!!
The makeup:
MAC Constructivist paint pot (from lashline to just above the crease), Amber Lights over that (on the lid), Texture (to blend out the edges of the paint pot), Ricepaper (brow bone & inner corner), 
Lipgloss (random BSS)
I bought this dress on sale (although it was gifted…long story) for $32 after taxes from Ann Taylor Loft.
I never wear black and brown together so wearing this dress makes me feel really edgy!  lol.
I think it’ll fit much better when I lose the spare tire around my middle, but I still love it!
 I have the hardest time finding boots that fit my meaty calves – these from Chinese Laundry are a HUGE favorite.  It’s called the “Top” boot and I have them in black & brown, they cost about $60 and they are real suede.  Can’t beat that with a stick!
I did my nails last weekend, and look at how well they are holding up!  I definitely think nail polish is something that you can tell the difference when you pay a little more for it.  I hardly ever pay full price though.  For OPI & Essie, I purchase from discount stores like TJMaxx or wait until they go on sale when the new season’s colors come out.  For Orly & China Glaze, I use my Sally Beauty Card and wait until they have a big sale or go on clearance.  Anywhooo, this week was a peach nude color with a simple design on my ring finger:
