Orly and some product raves!

18 Mar

On one of my trips to Ulta I picked up Orly’s Rococo-a-go-go. It’s mostly a purple micro glitter polish, but with gold and pink shimmer. I started with two coats of Gelous…which is where my first product rave comes in.  I heard good and bad about this base coat, but I figured I’d try it anyway. Its great, I had no problems with drying time like a lot of reviews said. I was a bit worried because some people were saying it took 10 minutes to dry, but it dried within a few minutes, if that.

Now, on to Orly’s Rocco-a-go-go. I only needed two coats, I could have used one, but I can’t help myself. I definitely think this is my new favorite! Orly’s formula is great! More of their colors will definitely be joining my collection! Now, bare with me, I took a lot of photos and this polish has so many colors in it.

I used two types of lighting, florescent lights and a CFL light. The ones with the color a bit more maroon and gold is the CFL and the purple and pink pictures are with the florescent lights.  Love it!

On a trip to Sally’s yesterday I picked up two lotions. Proclaim Olive oil lotion and Original’s  Cleansing Sugar Glow. Both really great. Proclaim’s lotion really soaks in and leaves my hands soft for the whole day! Original’s Cleansing Sugar Glow exfoliates great and leaves my hands and arms smooth.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

17 Mar

I was getting bored with my other St. Patty’s Day mani so I decided to change it up. I started with two coats of Sinful Color’s Base coat and then taped off my nail tips and used Ulta’s The Jungle Book.  Instead of stamping I decided to get in some practice with my dotting tools. I used Sally Hansen’s Spring Green.

 

St. Patty’s Day Nails

Feeling a bit festive, I picked up my Spring Green from Sally Hansen and Ulta’s The Jungle Book. It needed a little extra something so I stamped my ring finger with Konad’s Special White polish and Bundle Monster’s four-leaf clover.

I’ve been doing a lot of crazy colors lately so I decided to go in the opposite direction. I used Ulta Smoke Screen for the base. Then for the stamp I used BM12 and Sally Hansen’s Wet Cement.

More DIY Nail Color

19 Feb

I took a trip to Ulta this morning for my refill of Essie’s To Dry For. Since I’ve been buying new polish like crazy (picked up Revlon’s Popular yesterday) I knew I couldn’t get another new polish at Ulta so instead I picked up 2 Sally Hansen’s Clear polish for DIY Nail color so I could use my coupon.  I decided to use two of my Bare Mineral’s eyeshadows that I kinda forgot about. Cherry Coco Truffle is a brown with tiny pink sparkles in it and Berry Flambe is a purple with gold, blue and purple sparkles.

I like to use old scrapbook paper to make a funnel, its thick and easy to use since it is already a square.

I like the Bare Mineral’s because it’s powdery and if you use regular eyeshadow it needs to be ground up. I used the opposite end of a thin paint brush when I used an Almay shadow.

I’m pretty excited about these colors, I haven’t done a mani yet with them, I’ll probably do them tonight, but here is the final result! What would a nail polish be without a silly name, so here is Purple Moonlight

And here is Chocolate Strawberry.

New colors!

11 Sep

I took a trip to Ulta today to replenish my stock of Essie’s To Dry For, unfortunately they were out of it. 😦 But I did pick up some new polishes. Ulta’s Into Astrono-Me? (wow really annoying name. Lol) I’ve been looking for a flat navy blue, and had a really hard time, this polish was me giving in. I haven’t used it yet, but the more I look at the bottle the more I like it even though it isn’t flat. Eh, I also picked up Wet n’ Wild’s Greys Anatomy, it’s a purple holographic sort of color, it kinda looks like an oil stain…I tested it quickly…not impressed. the last color I got was Rimmels Steel Grey, it’s a purpley-grey….love it!
