| SATURDAY TIP #6 - How to fix smudged nail polish |

picture from here
Hey everyone,
long time no here ;) But we couldn't miss the SATURDAY TIP. Today we've got something for those of you, who love to paint their nails (everyone? :p)

You probably know that feeling- you try really hard to make your nail polish look perfect. Everything goes great, you're almost done and then THIS happens - you accidentally touch something and boom... smudged nail polish. But don't worry guys, there is no need to remove the color and to paint everything again. As long as the lacquer is still quite wet you can easily deal with this problem ;)

HOW? Simply lick your finger tip and using your tongue try to wipe the polish upwards to the edge of your nail (to even the surface). Finish with the topcoat. Voila. Simple fix and your nail polish looks gorgeous again. You'll thank us later :p

That's all for today. Do you have your very own ways to deal with the smudged nail polish? Let us know in the comments below :)
P&B, xoxo

| KABUKI BATTLE - Sephora vs H&M |

Hey everyone, 
we know the quality of makeup products is really important. But we can't forget that the "tools" - as in brushes - which are important as well ;)
You don't have to be a makeup pro to know that perfect working brush can do basically all work for you and even change the "final effect" on your face. Not to mention saving your time :) So today we've got for you a little battle of our favourites from KABUKI department - Sephora vs H&M

Sephora: smaller, more precise, works perfectly not only with powder but also with bronzer or a blusher, a true multitasker
H&M: bigger, "takes" more product from the packaging,
great brush for powder application

Sephora: "dome-shaped", more even on top than H&M's
H&M: rounded top, easily takes powder and spreads it evenly on your face

Sephora: natural goat hair, fluffy, really soft, nicer than H&M's, (it's easy to get a sheer coat of powder because the hairs are so soft)
H&M: doesn't hurt your skin, quite soft for us but might be a little stiff for some of you, definitely not "the softest brush ever" but does decent job

Hint:  You can easily built up coverage with natural finish using both of them

Hair loss
Sephora: they don't
H&M: only single hair

Sephora + H&M: both of them look really cute with the rest of our brushes (as you can tell :P), we love this simple, modern design

Sephora: $24 
H&M: $7,95

Final grade
Sephora: 4.5/5
H&M: 4/5 
That's all for today. We hope you did enjoy our little battle. Let us know what are your Kabuki favs :)
P&B, xoxo
