November 2017 Product Empties

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Here's my product empties post for November. I don't have a lot of product empties this month so let's get right into it.

November 2017 Product Empties

1. Listerine Total Care Zero Mouthwash
My favorite mouthwash that I've been using for quite a while now. I've finished quite a few bottles of it already and plan to continue using it unless I find something better.

2. Rose Mine Dermaceutical Azulene Calming Gel
I was mainly using this at night but I think it would work much better in the morning. It kind of works and feels similar to aloe vera gel. Its a blue tinted gel and it really really cooling and soothing when applied to the skin. I liked it and would repurchase it to use for the Summer in particular.

3. Rivecowe Sebum Control Convenient Compact
This was my everyday face powder and I quite liked it. It doesn't have that much coverage but it kept my skin from appearing shiny/oily when I used it. It took me quite a while to use it all up too.

That's all for my product empties. Not a lot of products but I'm still happy that I finished a few things.

Blue with Purple Tribal Inspired Stamping

Monday, December 4, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! For today's blue manicure, I'm sharing some stamping I did using a stamping plate from Born Pretty Store I was sent to review. I own a lot of stamping plates from Born Pretty Store and I've always been pleased with them so I really did like this one as well. Let's see the manicure.

Blue with Purple Tribal Inspired Stamping Nail Art

First, I used Essie Rock The Boat on all the nails. Next,  I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish #2603 with stamping plate Geometry BP-X36 from Born Pretty Store. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your entire order. Finished with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Here's a closer look at the stamping plate Geometry BP-X36. I like the mix of designs as well as the different sizes ranging from full nail to smaller designs that you can stamp onto your nails. This stamping plate is great for someone who likes either floral or tribal/aztec inspired designs.

I used a clear stamper to get the image centered on the nails and I think I did a pretty good job. Really happy with how the images stamped onto my nails and I like the mix of designs on the stamping plate too. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Camo

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is camo. This manicure was a bit rushed since the weather during the day I took these pictures wasn't the best and I had to work quickly before it got too dark. So, let's check out my design.

Neutral Colored Camouflage Nail Art

First, I used China Glaze Mahogany Magic on all the nails. Next, I created the simple camouflage print with Nicole by OPI My Jay Or The Highway!, OPI I Brake For Manicures, and American Apparel Hassid with a dotting tool. Lastly, I finished with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

It's been a really long time since I've done a camouflage print so I thought these turned out just okay. I went with a more neutral color scheme which I think fits with the cold weather right now. What do you think?

Essie Rock The Boat

Monday, November 27, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! So the past week I've been feeling a little down. Hopefully, this week will be a bit better than last week. To help, I've been shopping online a bit more and trying to relax when I can. I've also decided to upgrade my phone so I'm waiting for that to arrive in the mail. Anyways, let's see today's blue nail polish.

Essie Rock The Boat is a soft pale sky blue with a subtle shimmer running through it. I really like the shade of blue this polish is and that shimmer in it just makes it so much more pretty. Even though I really like the color, the formula wasn't the greatest. I found the formula streaky so I had trouble with applying the color on the nails evenly. This is three coats.

So even though the formula isn't the best, I'm still pretty fond of the color and will continue to wear it on my nails often. What do you think?

Nicole by OPI Haley Good Lookin'...

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Hi everyone! The weather for this entire week is suppose to be raining all day which I like but its not good for me to take any pictures though. I'm a little behind on my posts I have planned so hopefully, the weather will clear up a little so I can take some pictures. Anyways, I have a glitter polish to share for today's swatch post so let's get right into it.

Nicole by OPI Haley Good Lookin'... has pink micro glitters and larger hexagon glitters in a clear base. The hexagon glitters do have a little of a holographic effect to it when the light hits it which adds something different to the polish. The formula had a good amount of glitter to clear base so I found application on this polish great. The glittery payoff was pretty good with just one coat too. This is one coat over GOSH Hot Coral.

Even though this glitter looks pretty in the bottle, I just didn't like how it looked on the nails here. I think I might have to either try wearing it on its own or layering it over another base polish. What do you think?
