Fall Essie Nail Hail!

19 20 22Hi gals! I was recently at the drugstore and was inspired to pick up some new nail polishes. I found these from Essie: Meet the Parents (pale powdery blue), Dress to Kilt (red), and Skirting the Issue (deep burgundy). I thought these colors were perfect for fall and the transitioning summer weather, I’ve been absolutely loving the Meet the Parents shade! I really love Essie polishes, I was able to get these for only $4 each which was a real bargain! What shes are you guys loving currently? ❤

Covergirl XL Nail Gel Nail Polish in Rotund Raspberry

1 copy 2 copy 3 copy
Hello gals! ❤ I wanted to share a new nail polish I discovered in the beauty isle, it is the Covergirl XL Gel Nail Polish in Rotund Raspberry. It was only a few bucks, and what stood out to be immediately was the bottle. It’s huge! The next thin I noticed that it was a gel formula. It doesn’t require a UV lamp or curing, but it’s supposed to have the long lasting and chip free formula that gel polishes have! The color is gorgeous, perfect for fall. The formula is super thick but super opaque. You’ll only need one coat of this to get great coverage and shine. I would still apply and base and top coat jsut in case, but this is supposed to last for 7 days which is amazing! It did take a little bit longer to dry, but the finished product was amazing! Highly recommend!

Hi everyone! ❤ I wanted to share my top Essie Nail Picks for this summer! I really like Essie Nail Polishes, they are super cute, and have tons of colors. They are always releasing new collections for each season and I absolutely love the names. All of these were released this year except for the glitter shade which came out last Christmas. I found that it was perfect for an accent nail. 🙂 Anyway, here are the colors!: Parka Perfect, Naughty Nautical, Resort Fling, and Hors D’eauves.

They are already pretty affordable $2.80 each, so I decided to pick up a few. I was really drawn to the creamy pastels and the speckled polishes. I got 4 cream shades and 2 speckled shades, the formula of these I actually like. They take about 2 coats to be opaque, but they are really awesome for the price. Have you tried these?

Nail Polish Routine Must Havs <3

20140712_0852399 copycopyFor any nail polish look I’m doing, these are the staples that I always use for my base and top coats. My cuticles to get dry so I always condition the skin around my nails before or after I apply polish. The Julep Oxygen nail Treatment is a great translucent base that conditions and protects your nails, and my all time favorite top coats are the Julep Polymer Top Coat and the Pro-FX High Gloss Top Coat. They keep my nails shiny and prolong my mani. My must havs: Julep Oxygen Nail Treatment, Julep Ta-Da Quick Dry Drops, Sally Hansen Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil, Pro-FX Quick Dry High Gloss Top Coat, and Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat.

Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polish in Wintermint & Autumn Spice

20140408_205209 copy20140408_205230 copy20140408_205552 copyHey everyone! I wanted to make this post about the Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polishes $5.99 in Wintermint & Autumn Spice. They released last last year around the holidays, but I had picked up these two beauties to test out! I was intrigued to see if the scented part of the nail polish acually worked, and it does! The Autumn Spice shade kind of smells like fall cinnamony potpourri, and Wintermint smells like a typical strong mint scent. The shades are very pretty. I am curious to try the other shades!

Sephora Formula X Nail Polish in Obsessed

20140406_111150 copy20140406_111141 copy20140406_111047 copy
Hellloooo! I really had to dedicate one whole post on this nail polish alone. It’s the Sephora Formula X Nail Polish in Obsessed $10.50, and I am obsessed with it. I had heard a lot of hype about these little beautes, and decided to try it out myself. I’ve tried a lot of nail polish in my day, so my expectation were high. I absolutely love the color of this, something I find I can wear year round and look chic. The formula and brush is really great. Applys very evenly, and dried shiny! I do find it lasts a bit longer with a good base coat though!



Battle of the Beauty Boxes


Hi everyone! Recently I’ve been really into my beauty subscriptions, especially my Glossybox $21/month. I have been enjoying my Blush Mystery Bag $24.95 and decided to give Birchbox $10/month another go. I love getting new deluxe sizes of things, because it allows me to try new products, and also have a selection of great products to travel with. I’ve been a steady fan of Glossybox, (no complaints) and have been on and off with Blush Mystery bag since it has so much skin/body care items, though mostly full size. I haven’t had a Birchbox for a long while, since I thought the samples were so small and random, but I’m willing to give it another chance! Will report back!

Which beauty subscriptions is your favorite?
