Happy Monday loves!
I hope you all had a great weekend! Sorry, I’ve been somewhat MIA, it’s been a bit crazy here.
I was at Target a few weeks ago and came across Target’s new nail polish line: Defy & Inspire Wear Resistant Nail Lacquer! I normally don’t spend $7 on nail polish but I realized I needed to try this brand let alone the shade.
A little about Defy & Inspire: Their motto is “Beauty is our Responsibility”. Defy the Ordinary. Inspire the Extraordinary. It’s one of those new brands of nail polishes that have 5 Free: No DPB, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin or Camphor. I only know about the first Formaldehyde! lol
Target did a great job designing a nail polish brand! I mean have you seen the intensity of this “Moon Dust”?! According to Target’s website, it’s considered a metallic finish and metallic color palette. In my opinion, it’s a mix of sparkly baby blue, light purple with duo-chrome glitter. I topped it off with Revlon’s Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat, hence that strong sense of shine.
What do you guys think? Have any of you tried Defy & Inspire?
Happy Monday loves!
Hope you all had a great weekend and have been able to cool down in this crazy heat!
I couldn’t resist temptation and I had to go to Sally’s Beauty and check out their clearance. Low and behold, it was the same sale I saw last time I came in: Seche Premiere nail polishes up to 50% off. I originally was going to get the base and one shade. As I went to go pay, the lovely cashier told me there was a promotion: Buy 2 clearance items, and get the 3rd one free. So of course, I went back and looked for another shade that I would love. More on that next Monday 😀
I opted for Goddess which is a pretty metallic glittery almost white gold look to it. I think if I were to add this shade to another color as a top coat, it would look even prettier.
Happy Wednesday loves!
Hope you’re all having a great week.
I wanted to combine 2 nail polishes together and go figure, they’re both Sinful Colors. I used Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson “Kiss Goodnight” as the base and for the top, I used Sinful Colors “Gold n’ Roses”.
When I first saw Gold n’ Roses, I thought it would be a beautiful metallic rose gold color but when I first applied it, it was really sheer. I figured I would use it as a glitter or accent polish. I love how the 2 colors give off that pretty light blue with rose gold glitter.
What do you guys think?!
Happy Monday loves!
I hope you all are doing great! I’m so sorry for not posting as much as I used to, but been kind of busy with work! But I’m back. 🙂
I feel like I haven’t done a Mani Monday in forever. I scored this polish at the 99 cent store for only $1.99! Who would have thought you can find drugstore brands at the dollar store!
I’m wearing the Revlon ColorStay in the shade Sunburst. It’s a jelly type texture while I had to do a few layers for it to come out like that! The top coat on the middle finger is SinfulColor “Frenzy”.
What do you guys think?! 🙂 What’s your opinion about jelly polishes?
Happy Wednesday loves!

A few weeks ago, I was just browsing the beauty aisles at my local Rite Aid and found these gems on clearance!! All of the Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polishes were on clearance. Original price is about 5.99 and these were 75% off so they were $1.49. There was no way I was going to pass these up! I’ve been wanting to purchase these for a long time but kept waiting till they had a good sale. The best thing about these polishes is that they are scented!!
I got the:
*African Tea Rose: a pretty pink that smells like roses! This is the one I’ve wanted to buy since forever.
* Moonlight Woods: a metallic purple with a hint of blue. It smells like the Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods. (Go figure! :P)
*Wintermint: a sheer light green with a blue green glitter specks. Just like the shade says, it smells like Winterfresh gum! I’m pretty much a sucker for anything that smells minty so this is perfect.
*Surf Spray: a cool blue with blue shimmer. The scent reminds me of Irish Spring for some reason. It’s a fresh scent.
Swatches are coming soon! If only there was a way you all can smell the scents! lol 😛
Have you guys tried any of the Revlon Parfumerie? What do you think?
Happy Monday loves!
I’m going back to my Hunger Games themed nail polishes from CoverGirl because I wanted some glitter! lol
Here I’m wearing the CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Glosstinis in the shade 635 Scalding Emerald. This shade is more on the sheer side and to get this tone, I had to add 3 layers to it. 3 Layers! It doesn’t look as emerald as you would think but I personally like it. It has a mixture of gold and green specks of glitter. You can use it for a cute glittery top coat or just by itself. Either way, it’s a pretty color to wear especially during the holidays.
Hi loves! I hope all is doing well. 🙂
This is a very late post but hey its better late than never. About a month ago, I had gotten an email about trying the Julep Maven box and only pay 2.99 shipping. So I figured I would try it out to see what the hype was all about.
*The strengthening power of Hexanal
*Even color distribution and superior coverage
*Oxygen technology that lets nails breathe
*Antioxidants from pure green coffee extract
How Julep works:
You sign up and take a style survey and at the end you get a few picks depending on your style!
They have nail polish, makeup and hair, skincare, body, nail hand and foot care and weddings.
What I received:
*”Jet” from the It Girl collection- a creme dark black
*”Queen Anne” from the It Girl collection- a lilac confetti microglitter that does feel like there is a texture. Kind of like cat’s tongue or feels lighter than sandpaper.
*”Tatiana” from the collection Boho Glam- a golden burnt orange microglitter which is also a glitter.
* I also had gotten a gel eye glider in the shade Smoky Taupe Shimmer. I love this gel liner because it’s simple but yet makes a statement.
What do you guys think? Does any of you order from Julep Maven? 🙂
Hope you’re all having a great week and good luck to everyone taking their final exams. 🙂
For the past few weeks, I’ve seen both Target and CVS Pharmacy have the CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Glosstinis on clearance. At CVS, they’re 50% off and at Target it’s $1.49! Definitely a great steal! I bought this color at Target for only $1.48 and I’d be surprised to go back and see a few shades left. It turns out that this line is actually a limited edition Hunger Games called “Limited Edition Capitol Collection”.
Today, I’m wearing the shade 600 Sulfur Blaze. It’s a very vibrant yellow gold with gold glitter. It’s a great color statement and perfect for the summer.
I definitely can’t wait next week to see what shade I’ll be wearing for this Friday Manicure series.
I’m sorry for being so mia! Work has been hectic and somethings came up, but I’m back again! 😀
This weekend, I’m wearing the CoverGirl Outlast stay brilliant Glosstinis in 625 Violet Flicker.
This is definitely one of my favorite new polishes, maybe one of my top 5 nail polishes. It’s a purple color with dark colors of glitter although I had to use a few coats. (About 3 coats)
I actually found this polish on clearance at CVS. The original price is 5.99 but I got it for 2.99. I’m bound to go hunting for more of these Glosstinis!
I’ll be posting a beauty haul of some beauty products that I had to get! 😀
What do you guys think of this shade? Anyone else try something from this CoverGirl line?
I hope everyone is doing great this week! I unexpectedly went to CVS and found the Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Glosstinis in Inferno 615. I wish the picture could do justice to this nail color. In the bottle, it looks like copper but with gold speckles. Although on my nails, its more of a red polish but with copper speckles. Either way I love it! I used the Orly Polishield 3-1 Top Coat.
