Manicure Monday

Today's manicure Monday is Fourth of July themed. Aka patriotic fun with striping tape! I started with a base of wet n wild French White Creme then put on some striping tape. For the red I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Cherry Red and for the blue I used wet n wild fastdry in Saved by the Blue. I then topped it off with NYC Shimmer Blast topcoat cuz I can't resist sparkle ^___^ beside some smudging from the topcoat, I likes! Hope you do too.

Swatch: Opi in Chic From Ears to Tail

Polish received free for review from the Vogue Influencer Network. This is my honest review. 

Sorry I have been so MIA. Last seven days I worked 103 hours between three jobs. I'm back to normal next week so hopefully I will get back to track. Have some more swatches and reviews I have to share with y'all. 

Today I have a polish from the OPI Minnie Couture collection. This polish was sent to me by the Vogue Influencer Network. This is a pale pink with a very subtle shimmer. It is so subtle it does not translate to the nail at all. To be honest I have never really fallen for OPI. Their polishes are nice, but for the price I expect perfection. This one was a streaky mess! Given that is true with many pale pink cremes. It took four coats to get what you see here.

My first time using striping tape! And very VERY far from the last time! Omg this was just too much fun. I started with a base of Zoya in Rory. After it dried I put a few random bits of striping tape on my accent nail then topped with wet n wild black creme. I removed the tape while the black was still wet and tada! I loves it!

Swatch: L.A. Girl 3D Effect in Purple Effect

My first holo! Don't care if its a soft scattered holo. It's a holo and its a start! This one is really pretty in sunlight. It's not over the top, but is a nice sparkle. Def increases my need for a silver linear holo!

Review: Perlier Shower & Bath Cream Kit

Product received for free from iFabbo.  This is my honest review

I was excited to try these out from iFabbo since I am a total sucker for good smelling bath products =P.  I will go through each scent then give my overall impression at the end.

They came in a zip top plastic bag, this bag would be perfect for travel or keeping in a gym bag

It also came with a card to give the details on each scent in the kit

I decided to try the Honey scent first.  Totally by accident, I wanted to try the almond first, but was half asleep when I put this in the shower. 

Overall Thoughts: YUM. This smells just like honey.  The body wash lathers up really nicely and leaves my skin soft.  The lotion is really thin, but I was beyond shocked at how soft it made my skin. I cannot remember the last time my skin was this soft! For a thin fast absorbing lotion this is the best I have ever tried.  

Next up is White Almond.

Overall Thoughts: Very mild almond scent.  I was hoping for a stronger scent, but mainly because I am a sucker for almond.  It is still very nice and does not smell artificial at all.  The body wash lathers nicely and the lotion is quick absorbing and makes my skin super soft. 

Next is Shea Butter

Overall Thoughts: MMMMM citrus.  This has a light fresh citrus scent to it.  Like the other scents the body wash lathers up really nicely.  This lotion is much thicker, but I expected this with so much shea butter.  Even with being super thick, it absorbed quickly and did no leave my skin oily at all. 

Last we have Olive Oil

Overall Thoughts: This is the most mild scented of the set.  I can't really describe the scent, it is fresh and clean but I cannot pin point what I am smelling.  Body wash is great and the lotion is not as thin as the honey, but not as thick as the shea butter.

Overall Thoughts On The Kit: Oh my! My skin is soooo soft.  I really can't remember the last time it has been this soft. I am beyond impressed by this kit.  The scents are great and don't smell artificial.  The body washes lather up and clean really well. And the lotion, even the thinner ones, do a killer job at making my skin super soft. 

You can buy the kit from HSN here.  You can also get $5's off any Perlier product purchase at by using the promo code: ifabbo5 (affiliate link)

Manicure Monday

Sorry I have been a bit MIA. Been a lot going on and trying to figure out how to balance my time. 

But! I haz a mani for you!  I started with Sation of Corset I'll Call You as a base. The polish was so sheer I knew it would be good for layering. I did a layer of wet n wild in Sparkled then topped with one more layer of Corset I'll Call You. I love it! I love the milky look it has. Hope you like!

Manicure Monday

Today I whipped out my beloved bottle of Sinful Colors Green Ocean. I decided to do a jelly sandwich with Sinful Colors Irish Green. They go so well together! Love this!
