Spoiled by Wet n' Wild in Show Me Some Skin

Spoiled polishes come in many fun colors. This line was made in 2012 by Wet n' Wild. I own a few bottles by this line. My recent color is Show Me Some Skin. This is a creme base polish. I like how Spoiled polishes come with thick brushes. This color needs 3 coats for a good coverage. I had issues with the neons from this line but the cremes I have had better application with. One hand 3 coats took me seven minutes to dry with a fan. This color is a pinkish-tan lol omgoodness I wad actually going to say peachy but it more pink. But either way I love it.

OPI Euro Collection (2pcs)

The Euro Collection is awesomely opaque, I love that, and colors are trendy buy not too bold. This trip I picked up My Vampire Is Buff & I Saw.. U Saw.. We Saw.. Marsaw. Like most OPI formulas these polishes lay even, coverage is excellent two coats, and entire manicure dries in ten mins. My ring finger was accented with little dots ( I used a new GUM floss/pick end) in Sinful Colors' Super Star. I never use a top coat if I do I will advise which one I used for each look/swatch.

Revlon Super Lustrous in Blackberry

Burgundy is definitely my go-to color for cold weather. It just makes you look elegant in an instant. I've searched around a lot for lippies and I can now say I own enough red lippies for use daily for up to two years! I love them though so they will not go to waste. Well Burgundian lips and dark plum lips were my intentions but they sell out so quickly. I found the most awesome dark plum I will share later its by Sephora. But this Burgundy lippy by Revlon in blackberry is THE ONE at the moment. It's a creme lipstick and no gloss gives you a semi-matte look. I will present a complete look another day because at this time I'm due for a dinner reservation in thirty mins!! Hehe

Orly freebied

Two trips later I now own Naughty and Sec 'n Dry Topcoat by Orly. I made over $3 purchases and they gave each customer an Orly product for free because of new packaging that's coming out. Either way I'm happy because I caught sales and got cool freebies! Eeek I love Orly stuff I just cant get over the fact of getting these items for free!!! :)

Femme Couture palette 827830

This palette is on sale at Sally's for $4.49. I suggest wearing this with a base or eyeshadow primer. The neutral top row especially needs a base, maybe NYX milk. It goes on smooth powder finish with a hint of sparkle. The plum like color is my favorite, 2nd row 2nd square in. The palette has no name and no shadow labels either. Eight shadows for under $5? Deal!!

OPI liquid sand- Stay The Night

Loving this matte textured polish! Easy to apply, follow the directions, and lasting results. I bought this from a Pro store and while I was paying the reps there were downing this line. I honestly think they didn't know what they were doing. This is two coats. Coat one was thin and totally dry before my second layer. This is the end result.... I love it. I've hands-in-face all my coworkers today. A few people even asked me to purchase them a bottle or set and c.o.d, I don't mind. Also grabbing some for my sis who "fan girl" screamed at the sight of my manicure.

Burt's Bees' repeats

I can't stop restocking on my Burt's Bees' products! Especially the cuticle cream and lip balms. Do you have any faves? Such a deal too for this duo, $4.99!! :)

Mary Kay Buy 1

Finally my little order is in! :) I'm ecstatic over this brush. Its a flat top mineral foundation brush, was $10! I'm going to use it for blending though. Its small and can be transported and comes in a nifty holder so it stays clean. My brow kit though... Is soooo tiny!! I was expecting normal size tools for $4 but oh well still gets the job done. The kit comes with a tiny pair of tweezers, slanted brush, and brow comb-barrel. So far I've only used the tweezers... Its good to keep in my wallet (yes it fits) for random strays or pull out a splinter. I'm eyeing other products from Mary Kay but will wait a bit and see if they come out with polishes for the Spring.

Buying discounted polishes (authentic) brands

Getting polish for way cheaper is awesome... but, yes there is a but, have you notice the bottles aren't labeled as they are purchased individually? Well most of my Color Clubs come this way, no they're not "knockoffs". Well the solution for me is to label them myself. I'm using a Sharpie, shears, and sturdy paper, tape or glue. After pics will be posted soon.
