30% OFF Konad Nail Art Stamping Kit




Hey everyone! An updated announcement!

I received a new email from Jessica from WowSoCool that The Konad Nail Art Stamping kit has been changed from 20% to now 30% off. YAY! (round of applause!)

Well, I'm very excited to announce that you can get some awesome Konad Stamping Nail Art from the company WowSoCool for a fraction of the cost. It's very simple and easy to use. You don't have to spend hours at a time decorating your nails anymore since this process takes no more than 10 minutes or less. The instructional video is below. Now, let's talk about the DISCOUNT shall we?

1.) Go to the website: www.wowsocool.com
2.) When you order, use the coupon code: queenleilani and 30% will be taken off your purchase. Isn't that awesome?
3.) Do note, that the discount does NOT apply towards "Build Your Own Kit" since that is already discounted.

(picture from google, just to give you an idea of the end result).




The customer service and shipping is EXCELLENT! I actually emailed the company letting them know how happy I was with my products and the next day, I received a reply back by a representative named Jessica. I was very happy about that. She has been so helpful and very open in communication with me and I sincerely appreciate that. I know it takes a lot of work to be in the Customer Service world especially when you do not feel as though your job is appreciated. Trust me, I know....I've worked in customer service before for years. So when I deal with EXCELLENT customer service, I make sure that I give credit where credit is due.

The shipping was rather fast. I ordered my Konad stamping kit on a Friday and I got it on Monday. I was very surprised how fast I received my products! Also, it's FREE SHIPPING for orders over $20.00 within the USA and Canada and $2.00 for anything that is $19.99 and under. There is no complaints there for me! They do ship internationally. If you want to read more on the shipping costs internationally, click here for more details.

I am very big about customer service and shipping. You can shop on a website where the products can be cute, but it's the customer service that stands behind the products that matter to me the most! If the customer service is horrible, I will not put my money towards bad service. I will shop elsewhere. So if I say that WowSoCool has EXCELLENT customer service, it's because they really do. It's like that saying: "a beautiful woman with an ugly personality, makes her look ugly."

My friend Mary ordered from them after I brought my Konad products to school to show her a demo. She fell in love with them on first sight and ended up ordering them online right in front of me. I saw her a few days later and she ran after me very excited to me to show me her newly painted toes. HAHA. She said she was also surprised how fast the shipping was.

So check it out and let me know what you think.

My Prima J Inspired Look


Here's my newest video. It was a contest entry for YouTuber BeautyNewbie's 1,000 Subscriber Contest. The rules was to re-create a look from a music video, so I did Prima J's video "Rock Star." Oh by the way, Jessica and Janelle, the girls of Prima J actually saw my video. I'm so happy! I had so much fun doing this look. If you've never seen Prima J's music video before, click here.



Here's a picture from my inspired look.

Makeup By Me



I love my Coastal Scents Palettes that my boyfriend bought me. Since I've moved to New York, I've been using them almost everyday. I like trying a new color everyday. I try to pair colors together that I've never paired before. Experimenting. Practicing. That's the only way you get better at putting makeup on.





Yes those are my eyes. I used a mixture of pink, purple, green, blue and yellow. 5 colors from Coastal Scents.




Almost everyday, random people complimented the way I did my own hair & makeup. People suggesting me to do makeup as a job. To be honest, I just considered myself as someone who enjoys on myself as well as on other people. I'm not afraid to try new looks, bold colors, and outrageous styles. It's all about art and opening the creative side within you.



My friends and family love it when I'm inspired and look forward to being the guinie pigs when I'm inspired. LOL.

My friend Lisa (left picture) has such beautiful skin. I did her hair and makeup. It just made it so much easier to do her makeup when you're already working with flawless skin. Not to mention, the camera loves her. This picture was taken during our pajama party night. We woul
d make it a point to have a pajama party night together at least once a month and do each other's hair & makeup. What girly girls we are. LOL.

My cousin, Nichole (right picture), I did her makeup for her prom. Both of these ladies are absolutely photogenic. I love them both and miss them.
There are so many more pictures of others that I've done and I'll eventually put them up little by little.

Alma and Arlene


My long time friend and god daughter Alma came to New York to visit again. She also came to visit last month. It was a treat seeing her again 2 months in a row considering that we haven't seen each other in years. We used to hang out together nearly everyday when we were younger and I would sleep over her house and do girly things: hair and makeup and us dance in our pajamas till the wee hours of the night. We would make up dance routines together and had dance performances. Love it! Those were the fun days. Alma, do you remember how I used to always park backwards on the street on your block? haha.

She said she enjoyed doing the girly things with me again. I enjoyed it too.

I did her makeup and used the colors from her shirt that her little sister Angel got her. I used purples, greens, and turquoise blue. I think it came out really cute on her. I love this picture of her to the right with her glasses on. She looks like an anime character.
Ahh man, I forgot to take a picture of her cute nails that I painted. Oh well, next time.
























We were craving some Korean food so we hit up a spot in the heart of Korea town (Manhattan) called Shilla Korean Barbecue House. We had never been to this place before and knew nothing of it...but i'm so glad we came here because it was SO GOOD! It was a pretty classy place and the food was so tasty and full of flavors. We ordered whatever meat we liked and it was brought to our table raw but a host lights up the grill in the middle of our table and cooked it for us fresh. It was so yummy! There is plenty of various sauces surrounding the grill to dip your meat in. It was so good. Not only was the food good but the service was excellent. The waitresses were very attentative. I remember I accidentally dropped my chopsticks and before I could reach down to pick it up, a waitress picked it up and put a new pair of chopsticks on my table for me.

When it's time to receive your check, most places might give you some mints or chocolates along with your check. But this place gave you asian yogurt in a bottle. I thought it was original and a tasty dessert. I woke up the morning craving to go to this place again. Haha. I look forward to coming back again.

Kim Kardashian Smokey Eye Look




Here's my newest video. I had been asked by a lot of my friends on how to do a smokey eye look like Kim Kardashian. I told them I'd make a tutorial for them...but then there just happened to be contest on YouTube for a "Smokey Eye" look. What a perfect way to do a tutorial and contest entry in one shot. So my inspiration comes from a picture of the beautiful Kim Kardashian. I love this woman. She has such a beautiful and sweet personality that I admire. I also love how she does her makeup. If you want to watch the tutorial on how I created this look, the video is below. Hope you like it. =)

Lips:

This is by far one of my favorite looks. It's fun and very loud in colors and I like loud colors. Watch the video tutorial below.

Lady Gaga Nails



My friend Danilsa loves Lady Gaga!

When she came over to my apartment the other day, I painted her nails Lady Gaga style. If you've ever seen the music video, "Poker Face" (video below) there's a scene where she places a deck of cards face down and flashes her nails that have the symbols of the cards. Hearts. Spades. Clubs. Diamonds.


Lady Gaga's nails are painted with the colors black, white, red with crystal embellishments.
I took the inspiration from the video and incorporated it into my own style. Instead, I used the colors: hot pink, black, white with crystal embelishments. I painted Danilsa's right hand Lady Gaga style. I then painted Danilsa's left hand something completely different. As a matter of fact, with the same colors, I just freestyled with no plan as to what I was doing and I thought it came out pretty good. Hope you like it. =)
