Revlon Nail Polish: Bubble Gum (Scented)

I must say that truly love love love this color. When dry it has a nice candy scent to it. $4.95 at your local drugstore. This highly pigmented formula is suppose to last for up to ten days. I can't say that for sure, but I certainly can say that with all the heavy duty things I did today, including changing my front bike tire, it still looks fresh and new.
Recommendations: A good top coat.
Rating: 10 out of 10

If you don't know Nicki Minaj you soon will when she releases her debut album: Pink Friday. I'm stoked. She is my style icon pick for 2010. With her womanly curves and in your face style, it's no wonder she is featured on tracks with Will.Iam, Trey Songs, Mariah Carey, Usher and that's just to name a few.

I love red lipsticks, I love bold colors period. I know alot of women my complexion or darker are cautious of red and only stick with wines and plums. Red is not just a holiday color it can be worn all year round but with the holidays coming up what a great opportunity it is to experiment and find what red lipstick color and finish works best for you.
Of course when wearing any bold color I highly recommend a lipliner, to keep the color from bleeding or traveling outside the lip area especially when working with a non-matte lip color. In this video I lined my lips with L.A. COLORS lipliner pencil in Forever Red, which can be purchased on for little or nothing. And with a red lip always keep the rest of the face makeup to minimum, please reference: MAC RUBY WOO MY EVERYDAY MAKEUP video.
Hope this video is helpful, have a safe and happy holidays lady's and gems!
