Today's post is not a make up related blog, but I feel it deserves a post to commemorate the loss of someone who inspired me to love the arts and to do the things I love to do, including make up.
Today the world lost a legendary artist. I am absolutely shocked an sadden about this tragic news. David Robert Jones was born on January 8th 1947 in Brixton, London and passed away on January 10th 2016, in New York, New York after his battle with cancer. Better known as David Bowie, David Robert Jones touched the world and my life with his artistic inflence and expression.
I am truly sadden by the loss of such an amazing artist. I personally feel so much reget for never geting or finding the oppurtunity to see him perform live. We are slowly lossing a generation of incredible performers and artists, and we can't take back time. I feel lucky enough to have had someone so ground breaking to look up to through out my life.
Bowie was classy until the end. Blessed to be able to release a final album, he used it as a way to tell his fans that he knew he was dying and that he would be okay. He would finally be free amoung the stars.
David Bowie was a inspration to me in many ways. So many aspects of Bowie and his career have inspired the thiings I do and enjoy artistically today, Things like music, make up, video, fashion. He was revolutionary and will always be rememebered for it.
Daivd Bowies passing as truly rocked my world today. My love goes out to his family and friends today. I am from the bottom of my heart, truly sorry for your loss. I can only imagine what you are going through.
Usually when I go to get my nails done I don't usually choose to get any crazy designs or go all out with them. This is honestly is usually due to one of two reasons. One being that I am in too much of a hurry to get anything done and can't be bothered to worry about trying to take care of the design (being careful nothing is falling off) and two why am I paying someone else to do a design or add gems when I can do it myself at home. With all this said I choose to treat myself and get a wicked design right in time for New Years.
I wear false nails. They are a basic acrlyic nail. The polish covering my nail is a gel reaction polish called.. by... This color is a bright shade of hot pink when cold, and a beautiful light peachy shade when warm. This polish has a light sparkle giving it a more pearly finish. The glitter polish on my right thumb and left pinky is by Essie. This glitter polish is called ... (I chose to apply this glitter myself at home.) The designs done on three of my fingers were ceated with a gel color called ... My manicurist used a thin brush dipped in the black gel to create the design. (Everything was painted on by hand.) The three fingers with the gems on them were applied wit a clear gel as adhevisive.
This design was inspired by other nail designs found online. I got my nails done by Lynn at Y2K Nails in Brampton.

Happy New Year everyone! Best wishes to you all in 2016. Have wicked fun and be safe.
This year for Christmas I was lucky enough to get a few pretty cool bathroom or spa themed gifts. One of my favorte ones being a gift from my Aunt.
She got me a pair of socks called Un-BEARABLY Soft Socks. At first I thought these were the same as any old plushie sock but to my surprise they were not. These socks were soft and nice to lounge arouond the house in but nothing I would ever actually wear out.
I found out these socks were more then just lounge socks. These socks were actually good for your feet. Un-BEARABLY Soft Socks were special because they are super soft and infused with Shea Butter. The idea behind these socks is that you wear them at night when you are relaxing at home, or when you are going to bed.
During the time you wear the socks your feet begin to feel soft and smooth. The Shea Butter gets transfered to your feet from the material letting your skin absorb all the great qualities of the cream. The skin on your feet will appear to be more hydrated after the first wear. These cute socks also have littlee round grips on the bottom of each foot to help grip when walking around on smooth floors. To better perserve these grippies they suggest washes your socks inside out.
These socks are 86% nylon, 13% polyster, and 1% elstane. The Shea Butter that is infused into the socks should last for up to 25 washes. With that said remember that this is a speciality sock, so frequent washing should be avoided. People should also understand that these socks will not last forever. You will eventually need to buy a new pair.
You can purchase these socks at your local Bath & Body Works. They come in a varitety of cute designs and colors. They are $8.50 USD a pair. They are a great purchase for yourself or to give as gifts.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Hope everyone has had a fabulous holiday seaon filled with lots of love, joy and laughter.
This year I plan on truly bringing War Paint Luv back to life. Yes, last year (even before last year) I began to slack a little on the amount of entires I was posting in my blog. It was for a lack of interet. Life had simply become busy and my attention was needed else where.
Now Im back and this year I will be posting at least two weekly blogs. One being brand and collection related and the other being a "Look of the Day". Of course there will be plenty of other beauty related posts to be seen such as nail blogs and product reviews.
As always I am open to suggestion so If you have a specific idea or topic you would like to see written about please email me at email@example.com.
I am truly excited about 2016. I look forward to this year bringing lots of fun and adventure. Best wishes to you all.
First off I would like to wish everyone a Happy (Belated-Canadian) Thanksgiving!! If you are celebrating I hope you had lots to eat with friends & family.
Today's look was loosely based off of this "holiday" as well as the Fall season. When I think of this time of year in colors I think of shades of golden yellows, oranges, and browns thus the colors chosen for my eyes today. The rest of the look I choose to keep pretty basic, keeping my eyes as the main pop of color and focus.

Today's manicure is call You're Heart's Desire. My nails are acrylic and shaped to a point. The shellac Im wearing is called Heart's Desire by Perfect Match. It is a Mood shellac that changes color based on your nail and body tempature. This perticular shellac changes from a bright cherry red to a dark cherry red. I am absolutely in love with this shade of dark cherry red. I chose this polish in theme of fall and Halloween being right around the corner. Blood splatter to follow... ;)
(My nails are wet in this photo because I had to run them under hot water. They wouldn't stay warm. Lol.)
