Pop Beauty for Costco in 'After Hours'

Pop Beauty (for Costco) Nail Polish in ‘After Hours’

I was recently at costco and noticed pop beauty had a set of (smaller than full size) nail polishes for a very reasonable price. I took this as an opportunity to try out the line as I have never tried any of their products. I started with the shade that appealed to me most – a dark, yet obviously blue color named, ‘after hours.’ I love the color so much,  I’ve been wearing it for the past three days and reapplying when I see chips.

KISS Nail Dress Packaging

The nail applique trend is pretty big right now; rightly so, the appliques are probably the easiest way to get great looking nails effortlessly. Before trying this product, the only experience I had with these were via the Sally Hansen nail polish strips. The two products are similar but definitely not the same. I received this product via the Influenster Voxbox although I do have other designs I purchased on my own. The following is a review of these strips…..

Gel Manicure at Home with Gelish! Featuring the color Night Reflection.

Gelish Nail Polish In Night Relection, Swatch

Gelish Nail Polish Swatch in Night Reflection

Gel nails. They are huge right now. Among the claims sported by gel manicure companies are such statements as: no chipping, no peeling, 3 weeks wear, no fading. This is everyone’s dream right? Up until recently, you had to get yourself to a salon to get one of these manicures as well as pay around 25-35 a pop. Being one of those who doesn’t go to the salon, ever, I bought the Gelish kit when it was released at Sally Beauty Supply. I’d been sitting on the kit until today as I thought the manicure would take forever. However, I discovered that this manicure isn’t as complicated as I once thought. Read on for more!
