Spotted at CVS – Awesome Kiss Nails!

by Bionic Beauty on February 24, 2014 · 0 comments

On a jaunt to my local CVS drugstore this week, I spotted these completely awesome glue-on nails by Kiss.

The complete collection:
Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails - 3

And a close up of my absolute faves:
Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails - 2

I am DEFINITELY going to recreate those rainbow-ombre-sparkly-goodness nails as soon as I can! I’m figuring I’ll custom mix some pastel colors with my Gelish top coat – that should get the job done.

Which set is your favorite?

Happy Friday!!!! I came across a few quotes this week that seemed super appropriate for sharing with my fellow Bionic Beauties.

Three of these quotes I discovered via the ‘net. The fourth (and my personal favorite) is pulled from…. “the increasingly misnamed trilogy of five books” (have you guessed it yet?)… The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe series! I’m almost ashamed to admit that I have not read these books until now, but not really ashamed since I am rectifying that oversight. And rather quickly. I’m on book three now – Life, the Universe and Everything – and it’s awesome!

“I find beauty in unusual things, like hanging your head out the window or sitting on a fire escape.”

~ Scarlett Johansson, from Seventeen Magazine, May 2007

“Sculptors, poets, painters, musicians – they’re the traditional purveyors of Beauty. But it can easily be created by a gardner, a farmer, a plumber, a careworker.”

~ Charles De Lint, from The Onion Girl

“It’s important for all types of women to know that you don’t have to fit a prototype of what one person thinks is beautiful in order to be beautiful, or feel beautiful. People think: sexy, big breasts, curvy body, no cellulite. It’s not that. Take the girl at the beach with the cellulite legs, wearing her bathing suit the way she likes it, walking with a certain air, comfortable with herself. That woman is sexy. Then you see the perfect girl, who’s really thin, tugging at her bathing suit, wondering how her hair looks. That’s not sexy.”

~ Jennifer Lopez, from Reader’s Digest, August 2003

Quote by Douglas Adams from The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Nice quotes, right? Please share your favorite beauty, book, or whatever quotes below!
Have a wonderful weekend y’all,

As most of you know, Annette Funicello passed away earlier this week. As a young girl, I watched Annette on Mickey Mouse Club reruns and in the always-fun Beach Blanket Bingo movie. Even though I was still in the single age digits, Annette’s grace and presence struck me. I grew to respect her poise even more when I learned of her battle with MS.

The Best Underground Beauty Products?

by Bionic Beauty on April 2, 2013 · 9 comments

Hipster beauty products?  Oi vey.  I sometimes wonder who comes up with article titles on some websites.

I know my titles probably aren’t the most creative but I’m writing them to be informative and not just key-worded-loaded.

And now I will stop ranting and turn you over to this list from Total Beauty.  Read and enjoy… then let me know what are YOUR favorite underground/indie beauty products?

These products are so cool, you’ve probably never even heard of them

At this point, the label “hipster” has so many changing definitions and technicalities that you will probably qualify as one in some form eventually. But one thing most can agree on is a hipster’s appreciation of underground things that aren’t tarnished (yet) by being “mainstream” and loved by the masses. No, we’d never disapprove of a CoverGirl concealer or Rimmel mascara, but every now and then it’s fun to embrace your inner hipster and get in on something others have yet to discover. Consider this one of those times.
