Cutout Chevron Blues

Monday Blues! But it’s definitely not the sad kind!

I received a fun box of surprises from Julep. They sent me some lovely products to participate in their #bravepretty campaign. Which I resonate with because I’ve grown up full of insecurities as a kid and young adult. I am an extremely shy person, and not outspoken. I think my life only changed in my late 20s where I was able to accept that I am who I am. And I don’t have to be afraid of life. Although occasionally it gets the best of me. Public speaking is still the worse. Haha.

However in the past year, I have found a new Brave Pretty. I became a mom last October to a beautiful baby girl. She means the world to me. It has definitely been a new and challenging experience. And some days were rougher than others. Especially in regards to sleep during the early months. Sometimes you have sooooo much work to do, so many chores to take care of, but your child needs you. Brave Pretty for me is being a mom. Not just me, but other mothers. In your most non-makeup, bed-head hair tied in a bun, sloppy clothes covered in spit, drool, baby food, other random stuff…nothing beats the joy of your child looking up at you, smiling at you, loving you so much that they cry when you leave the room. It is hard work and not always pretty. But it is worth it.

I have yet to try these Gel Eye Gliders (hopefully I can post a photo of it in use soon). The purple is called Radiant Amethyst and the blue is Regal Teal Shimmer. They look beautiful and cost $16 USD each.

Last but not least are the polishes! Love. These formulas were easy to apply! Briana is the darker blue crème, while Danielle is the shimmery cerulean blue duochrome.

I created myself some nail vinyls in a chevron shape and painted Briana at the base with Danielle at the tips. I left a chevron cutout in my natural nail color and then finished it off with a top coat.

Blue & Orange Watermarble

Blue Orange Watermarble Petite Peinture Nail Art Brave Pretty Julep
One of my favorite color combinations is Blue and Orange. (If it was not evident already based on Petite Peinture’s color scheme, or my personal website :P ) I decided to try a watermarble with the beautiful Julep Danielle and Julep Briana that Julep gave us as part of the #BravePretty campaign.

Sailor Jupiter

Sailor Jupiter has always been one of my favorite sailor scouts. Although green is not my favorite color, something about her character drew me to her. Maybe it’s her special ability or something ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sailor Jupiter Petite Peinture Sailor Moon Nail Art Green Roses

I used the gorgeous scatter holo green piCture pOlish Hercynia as the dominant color for this look. I pulled out all of my greens in my nail polish collection and felt this one worked the best. (All of my other greens had either too much yellow or too much blue in them, I’m a little lacking in the true green department :P).

Scentbird

Hi guys,
Sorry for the hiatus! Rathy and I had to put Petite on hold for a little bit to catch up in our personal lives. We’re hoping to start posting more regularly again. :-) Thank you for bearing with us!

Here is a simple nail art look inspired by the Scentbird product! :-)

Scentbird Black White Petite Peinture Nail Art Bird Perfume Metallic

Scentbird recently sent us a complimentary perfume from their perfume subscription service. For $14.95 a month, Scentbird sends a packaged sample of perfume of your choosing or one recommended by their system. The size is perfect travel size (though I’m not positive if it’s under 3 fl oz, the packaging seems about the same size as some of my travel-sized shampoo containers and those are under 3 fl oz.) It’s an interesting idea for those that want to try new scents without having to buy the whole bottle. Personally I really like the perfume bottle designs, sometimes that might be the only reason I get a bottle of perfume :x
