OPI Push and Shove Swatch

Hey everyone. So while at the store picking up some groceries I came across this polish that said it’s supposed to be like mirror reflective chrome so of course I had to buy it. It came a small trial size base, coat called lay down that base. The instructions say to use that base coat and no top coat but I used seche vite anyways (checked out another blog that used a top coat with no ill effects of the end result) My first impression is that it’s a nice silver polish but it is not in any way mirror reflective and I could have bought a silver polish for a lot cheaper. The application was very smooth, dry time was super quick. Overall I like the polish but I don’t think the description is accurate. I used two coats out of habit but if you are good at applying you can get away with one coat. It is very opaque. Time for some pictures! Hope you guys all enjoy!ImageImage

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Pearly Whites

DSC_0021

Hey everyone,

It’s been such a long time since I posted last, that’s how life is I suppose, the time just flies by. Anyways the other day I came across this polish with the little flakies in it and it looked so pretty in the bottle I thought why not try it out, I have never used a flakie polish before. I got Sally Hansen’s triple shine “Pearly Whites” I think it would look best on a dark color so I used a dark royal blue from the Avon nailwear pro line. I did two coats of the blue and two coats of the pearly whites and then one generous coat of seche vite so it wasn’t too lumpy feeling. The flakes seem to lay flat for the most part and come out pretty evenly. They have a blue, purple, green, orange, silver shimmer to them. The only complaint I have is the bottle design. The neck of the bottle is so narrow and the brush is wide so you have to put the brush back in super careful so you don’t get polish all over the bottle and ruin the bristles. Just be aware of that while using the polish. Overall though I think this polish looks beautiful! It is really something different for me and I love how the light catches all the colors. Hope you guys enjoy, I would say this polish would be worth buying 🙂

L.A. Colors palette review no.2

Here’s review number two on the L.A. Colors eye palette I bought. This time I went with a silver smokey eye. I picked up maybelline master precise eyeliner pen yesterday too and I love it! So easy to apply and make a sharp winged eye. Wore this look going on 10 hours now and it’s staying strong. Pretty good for a $2.99 palette!

Dancing nails by Sinful colors

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!!

L.A colors eye shadow palette review no. 1

I’m happy to say I did try out one of my new palettes I got the other day, you know the one that had 24 colors for only $2.99! I wanted to go for the antique bronzy gold theme but toned down. My one complaint right off the bat is the colors I used for this look was fallout madness! There was a lot of fallout and it was rather annoying but I was patient and able to achieve the look I wanted. The lighter colors I hoped would be more opaque. But the darker browns made up for that I think. I used only colors from the palette and maybelline gel eyeliner. For mascara I used maybelline colossal cat eyes (love this mascara!) let’s get straight to the pics why don’t we?!

Colors I used

And also I wore my hair half up half down in this really cool handmade leather feather that I got from the renaissance festival a couple years ago.

I am going to try out other color combos with these palettes and post them up here to show how far a $2.99 palette can go! Enjoy your Sunday night everyone!

Mini haul today

I had to replace my foundation and pressed powder today and while at the drugstore I picked up a few other things as well. I picked out a concealer, eye shadow primer and two eye shadow palettes. I’ve never used concealer or a decent eye primer so in excited to use those in the morning and I’m even more excited to us my new palettes. They were $2.99 each with I think 24 colors each and I swatched them all (sorry no pictures yet) and they are all completely opaque and they are all a metallic/shimmer finish, which I love! I’ll post a review of each product after some usage time 🙂
