Manicure Monday

Super simple mani today since I'm home sick *sad face* I got this value set at Walgreens a while ago and I'm finally getting around to a mani with it 

I started with a base of Sugar Coat. This is a sheer milky color. It took about four coats to get rid of the streaks. I think day nails were smoother it would have been less streaky. I then did an accent nail with Sparkle and Grey. I wasn't very happy with how it looked so I did a milky jelly sandwich with another layer of Sugar Coat and man I love it!! 

Review: Perlier Refreshing Crackling Ice Body Water

I received this item for review from iFabbo. This is my honest review

The description of this item seemed so unique I was excited to try it. And man oh man is it special! It's like pop rocks for the skin! 

Overall thoughts: This is like nothing I have ever seen! It comes out of the bottle crackling and sounds like pop rocks!! You can feel it crackling on the skin. What I love best is it crackles as you rub it in, not just when it comes out. It is a very light gel that absorbs in the skin very quickly. It is not super moisturizing, and the citrus scent does not last long, but man is it refreshing! This product is so unique I'm glad I got a chance to try it.

Review: Hydroxatone AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex

 I received this product free for review from iFabbo. This is my honest review 

This isn't just a night cream, it can also be used for the day and has SPF 15. Lets take a look at it. 

Initial Thoughts: Happy it has SPF, just wish it was higher. I like to use at least SPF 30 on my face. It also, reminded me of butter, so I was a bit creeped out. It is very thick and I could definitely feel it on my skin.

Overall Thoughts: This cream is very thick. I could feel it on my skin and I was a bit extra oily the next morning. It is way too thick for my to wear under makeup during the day as I get super oily. I think this would work better for those with dry skin. It is way too much for my oily skin. My face was moisturized, but I was not a fan of the extra oil and heavy feeling it left on my skin. I would not purchase this one.

Manicure Monday

My awesome coworker got me this OPI set for my birthday *squee*

So of course I needed to do a mani with them! I started with a base of Number One  Nemesis. This one is pretty sheer and it took 4 coats to be opaque but man it's a stunner and dries quick too! 

I then topped my nails with a coat of Metallic 4 Life with three coats on my accent finger. Love! Black and silver glitter ah how I love it.

Swatch: Sinful Colors in Leather Loose

I don't like mattes. I prefer shine. So I wasn't really thrilled by the leather collection from Sinful. But then I saw swatches of Leather Loose. A brown jelly with glitter? Uh oh. So then Sinful is on sale for 99 cents at Walgreens this week. Double uh oh. Soooo y'all can guess what came home with me! I love it! Took three coats but dry time was amazing.
