Dâmaris is 37-years old and Brazilian. Her parents taught her to love nature and observe its colors, textures, sounds, flavors, and fragrances. She deeply appreciates nature and respects it, and she has found this education helped her develop a taste for beauty in all its various expressions, like music, photography, and cosmetics.
She studied in Psychology and currently teaches at the University. Dâmaris believes there is an art of self-care, which is good for your emotions. She describes her philosophy as, “Taking care of the body is good for the heart, thoughts, and does good to the will to live. Highlighting your points of beauty is a secret we learn every day.” Check out her blog, Village Beaute!

When I think of New Year’s Eve parties, I think of bright lights with gold and glitter–what do you think of? I thought I’d make some gorgeous suggestions from Brazil to give you a sparkling, shimmering manicure for the New Year.
From Ludurana Enamels, I love their poly- and duo-chromatic shades. Ludurana Aurora Boreal Emocianante (R $ 14.80) is a multi-chrome of burgundy, purple, and copper, while Ludurana Aurora Boreal Fascinante (R $ 14.80) is a multi-chrome that features olive green, metallic copper, and molten red. Ludurana High Definition Perolado is a shimmery gold (R$ 3, 20).
Hits Enamels, which launches new collections often, has two spectacular glazes for New Year’s Eve parties! Speciallita HITS #11 (R$3,20) a gold with a hint of pink, and HITS Mari Moon Cool (R$ 8.50), a multi-chrome of chartreuse, navy, and green. Impala Enamels has Chrome (R$ 2,90), an old, antique gold, that I love. If you prefer a glitter with a golden glow and a 3D effect, try Fina Flor Sol (R$7,00).
Finally, to top that all off, consider Big Universo Fáculas Solares Raio Alfa (R$10,00) is a flaky top coat. For swatches, I first applied a layer of black, and then I used a layer of the top coat to give it that sparkle!
These are my favorite enamels with that sparkle for the holidays–the beauty all depends on the angle, and they can highlight other colors as well! Which was your favorite?
