Influenster VoxBox #CSMTKO Sally Hansen complete salon manicure

Hey guys! Long time no see!

I’ve been taking a break from polishing to get my nails back in healthy shape and quite frankly I was becoming unhealthily obsessed with nail polish so I had to take a chill pill for a sec.

Anyways, during that time I got a voxbox sent to me compliments of influenster.com. They sent me three polishes from The Sally hansen complete salon manicure line. All three are full size bottles! They sent me a classic bright red called “red my lips” a teal turqoiuse blue called “jaded” and a very dark plum purple called “pat on the black”

I did a swatch of all three to try them out and I have to say I am impressed. The brush is wide and flat for easy and smooth application. There was no dragging or pulling. Red my lips and pat on the black were Opaque in two coats while jaded took three. The dry time was not bad at all. I still had to use every ounce of self control to not use my seche vite for practically instant dry time lol this polish is supposed to last for ten days with no top coat so that’s why I didn’t use the seche.

Revlon autumn spice scented nail polish

Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been missing for a while. Life gets in the way sometimes :/ the other day I saw a display for the cutest little nail polish bottles. I had to go check them out! They have the cutest little round tops and a nice square bottle with beveled edges! They look so unique! Better yet they are scented! On the display was a little brochure where you can lift the edge and sniff the scent.

I picked autumn spice and wild violets. Autumn spice smells just like the name. It doesn’t produce the scent until the polish is dry and you can still smell it with seche vite over the top. It’s a dark brown with gold and red shimmer throughout. I used two coats. Went on smooth and easy. It came out darker than I thought it would but it’s a dark rich fall color! Next week will be wild violets which is a dark rich purple with subtle blue shimmer.

20131002-175243.jpg

Hey lovelies! This weeks mani is more on the femme side. I don’t often do pink but this one I could not pass up. It’s called dancing nails from the hot flash metallics collection. I used two coats. Application was very smooth, no dragging at all or bubbles 🙂 and dries pretty quick too! You should all go out and by it! On my accent nail I did a water marble with I think it’s called dark bronze. Hope you guys like this weeks mani. And here’s my new YouTube video as well on makeup I got at the drugstore and a score I made on some awesome palettes for only $2.99!!

Pure Ice “I’ll never tell” swatch/review

Hey guys! I’ve been feeling under the weather lately and feeling like allergies are getting the best of me. I just switched to a different medication and the past few days have been a bit better so I thought I would try out a polish I’ve had but haven’t used yet. It’s by Pure Ice and its called “I’ll never tell” it’s a dark rich brown with what looks like brown glitter and a slightly lighter maybe silver hued flakies.

The color was opaque in two coats. I was wary bc I bought another pure ice which I thought would be opaque and it turned out to be very sheer so I was pretty happy with this one being opaque. The flakies makes the application a bit tricky. It’s not terrible but it’s not smooth either. I would highly recommend a thick layer of top coat after applying this polish. It dries rather slow so I used a fast dry top coat, seche vite. On my accent nail I used some striping tape to add a couple diagonal lines to add some character and then a gold glitter polish by sinful colors called all about you. I love love love all about you. It’s very dense with gold glitters and some copper ones throughout. You can see the base color below just enough but I can easily get covered up by all the glitter so be careful and use a thinner coat when using this polish. It goes on super smooth as well.

I would recommend “I’ll never tell” being that it is only $1.98 at Walmart. It’s a good polish for the price and I love the color. It’s the first time I’ve tried out a brown polish and I love it! Def a thumbs up! The only downfall is the flakies making it a bit tricky to apply. Hope you guys like this swatch/review. Have a splendid week and weekend everyone!

Are you ready for Autumn?

Hey guys! I’m sad to say the summer is coming to an end. It’s still warm here in upstate New York but it won’t be for long. I thought I would try out a more autumn type color to get me ready for the cooler days ahead. The color I’m wearing this week is by sinful colors and its called Courtney Orange. It’s a Metallic burnt orange color. Almost makes me think of a shiny metallic pumpkin. The formula seems really smooth and there was no pulling. I used three coats to reach the opacity I liked. On the ring finger I added some glitter like I always do 🙂 I always want to do glitter on all the nails bc I love anything sparkly but Id rather not spend an hour taking it off so I stuck with just the ring finger. I did have some bubbles but that could have been bc the last coat with too think or bc I was running out of top coat. The color is still gorgeous though! Hope you guys like it!

Vampy, Sultry manicure

20130821-212242.jpg

Hi everyone! This week is another simple mani. I’ve been super lazy lately and am enjoying the more..simple look. Besides with dark colors I think it’s almost better to have a simpler manicure.

I went with a very dark red leaning brownish bronze. It could easily be mistaken for black in dim lighting but don’t be fooled it is a dark luscious red! Makes me think of a vampire nail polish 🙂 I used sinful colors rich in heart and for the accent I used sinful colors all about you over the rich in heart. The application was smooth and very opaque. Only needed two coats and if you are a super skilled manicurest (I think I just made me own word?) then it could be a one coater!

Hope you guys enjoy this color!
