NYC Amazon Green

NYC New York Color Amazon Green COVEREarlier this week I went to Rite Aid to take advantage of their 40% off NYC Cosmetics sale. I use the Smooth Skin foundation as my every day foundation and use several of their other products so I stocked up. While I was there I noticed the NYC City Samba collection display. While we’ve already reviewed most of that collection I was a bit skeptical of reviewing the last couple as I wasn’t sure…

Pixi Crystal Champagne

Pixi Crystal Champagne COVERPixi sure knows how to celebrate their birthday!

For their 15th birthday Pixi created Crystal Champagne. It is a lovely rose gold glitter that is a mix of chunky pink glitter and smaller gold glitter. In the bottle this glitter really does look like champagne!

Application was fairly easy though this glitter is on the thick side. I didn’t have any issues with the glitter laying down flat though I…

OPI – Can’t aFjörd Not To

opi - can't afjord not toYippie! OPI’s Fall collections always make me happy. I love the destination/location based themes the most.  The Nordic Collection for Fall 2014 has been out for over a month, but I had trouble narrowing down my choices. I finally decided on Can’t aFjörd Not To and Skating on Thin Ice-Land. I have my eye on a few more, but we’ll have to see!

I don’t wear oranges that often. It’s not that I don’t…

Nail Art: Sally Hansen Triple Shine Palm Beach Jellies

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Palm Beach JelliesThis is a LONG overdue post.

When I heard about the Sally Hansen Tripe Shine Palm Beach Jellies I was SO EXCITED. I never really got into the OPI Sheer Tints so I had nothing like these jellies in my collection.

I ordered the entire collection and was eagerly waiting so I could play with them and make super awesome nail art. Well, as it turned out, I did manage to achieve some pretty fun…

Barielle My City Apartment

Barielle My City Apartment

Barielle My City Apartment COVERThe weather here this week, while cooler, has been quite drab and dreary. I blame that for picking this nail polish out to wear on a whim. I’ve had My City Apartment for a while but I always forget how awesome gray nails can be.

My City Apartment is a light cool toned gray with blue undertones. The color is lovely and very flattering. Plus, the formula is fantastic. I used just two coats in my…

deborah lippmann Harlem Nocturne

deborah lippmann Harlem Nocturne COVEROh my gosh I’m in nail polish love. This is another polish I wasn’t all that enthusiastic about. Honestly, in the bottle, it looks like China Glaze Midnight Mission which I adore (it’s seriously a gorgeous polish) but I was hoping for something new. Wow, was I wrong! Harlem Nocturne is nothing like China Glaze Midnight Mission though equally gorgeous.

deborah lippmann describes Harlem Nocturne as…

Essie The Perfect Cover Up

Essie The Perfect Cover Up

Essie The Perfect Cover Up COVERIt’s finally starting to feel a bit like fall here in Charlotte which is good, not only because I’m over the hot weather, but because I’m really getting into fall nail polish collection. Essie’s Dress To Kilt collection is my current favorite for fall. I absolutely loved Style Cartel, Fall In Line and Partner in Crime so my expectations were high for The Perfect Cover Up.

I’m going to be honest;…

OPI My Voice is a Little Norse

OPI My Voice is a Little Norse coverLately my nail polish preference has been mostly cremes. I don’t know why as I used to be a glitter lover but I just haven’t been much into glitters in quite awhile. But, My Voice is a Little Norse was included in the OPI Nordic mini set and I figured since I had it I might as well give it a try! As it turns out, I’m a little bit head over heels in love with this polish.
