So I know I have not been good at keeping up with the blog. I’m hoping to be publishing more posts considering my new android phone with a great camera. I am so excited for fall and winter…..it’s easily and hands down my favorite time of the year. In honor of that, I’ve got a great, vampy nail polish to show you…..

Pop Beauty Nail Polish in ‘After Hours’ – Pictures and swatches

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.

Butter London ‘Saucy Jack’ – Swatches and Review

Butter London is a prestige polish brand which can be a little pricey. Each polish typically retaisl for around $15.00 a piece. Now, if you’re a polish collector like me, a sale is a chance to buy some Butter. Ulta recently had a buy 2 get 1 free sale so I picked up ‘saucy jack’ to be part of my collection.

Physician’s Formula PH Matchmaker Bronzer in Light – Outside Packaging

Spring is here and with it come new drugstore products! The drugstore lines have all really stepped up to the high-end plate and cranked out tons of new, innovative, items! I purchased this bronzer in February when Physician’s Formula’s new products hit the shelves. I have waited until now to review this because, honestly, I’ve been using it everyday and had to pull it out of my bag to take pictures and swatches. I love this bronzer – it is my new holy grail bronzer y’all! Read on for more…..

Gelish Nail Polish In Sugar Daddy

Today is a simple post. I have swatches of Gelish Sugar Daddy. This is part of the Nail Harmony Gelish line at Sally Beauty Supply. This polish requires the gelish system and UV light which can be purchased at the same store. I love these at home gel manicures and I get a full two weeks of wear (without chipping!) from them! This color in particular is limited edition and part of the Candyland collection. Read on for more pictures….

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!

Almay Intense I-Color Shadow Stick Review and Swatches

Almay intense i-color shadow stick in Blue and Hazel

Almay intense i-color shadow sticks in blue and hazel eyes

Almay is kicking out some really awesome stuff lately! It isn’t a brand I’ve typically been drawn to, but with the new releases, I’m lovin’ the company! One of their new spring products are these shadow sticks. They are a cream shadow in twist up form and Almay claims they are ‘crease proof.’ They are also rumored to be a dupe for the MAC shade sticks. I can’t speak to that, since I haven’t tried the MAC, but as a cream shadow lover, I think these are great! Read on for more….

Yay for new drugstore products and double yay for new Revlon products! Y’all know I love my Revlon. They make my favorite foundation, concealer, and tons of other products that I love. The photoready line was extended for spring to include a new airbrush mousse foundation (review coming soon), brightening concealer, bronzing palettes, and primers. I love a primer that does more than just prep the skin, so I picked up the perfecting primer. I’ve been using this for a good week now, so read on for the review and more pics….

Sally Hansen Gem Crush Glitter Polish in Razzle Dazzler to right and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Celeb City on left

I have a bling-tastic manicure for y’all today! I just bought Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Celeb City on a great CVS sale. This polish is so pretty – it is a true silver foil polish that looks both bright, metallic, and shiny on the nails! Love! I went to paint my nails with this color last night and realized a colorful glitter with silver accents would look fab on top of the foil. So, I chose one of the new polishes from the Sally Hansen Gem Crush line in Razzle Dazzler. I love this manicure so much and it’s perfect if you want a sparkly, glittery, blingy manicure!

Revlon Colorstay 16 Hour Eyeshadow Quad in Precocious, outside packaging

More new drugstore reviews! So exciting! This is one of Revlon’s new offerings for spring. These quads are intended to be the next generation of the colorstay quads that have already been around for a while. The biggest difference I notice between the old quads and the new one quads is the color range! These new quads have more bright and other non-neutral colors to choose from. However, for my first purchase, I tried to stay a little neutral with Precocious…. Read on for more!
