Mani Monday: Gel Effect Shine

Happy Memorial Day loves!

Hope you all enjoy your day off and having fun!

I went to a makeup blowout sale a few months ago and found this really pretty metallic pink berry color for only $2. Sadly I can’t figure out what the official name of the brand or color, I even searched on google and got nothing! Either way it’s S.he Gel Effect Shine Polish and I love it. I only used 2 coats and got this vibrant color. It easily works with even just 1 coat, but I wanted that pop of color.

What do you guys think?!

 

OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s On the Go Kit

Happy Monday loves!

Have you ever went into a store knowing you were just going to browse and half an hour later, you buy more than you expected?! TJ Maxx is that store for me. I always have to take a look at their beauty products. This day was no different! I came across an OPI nail kit and once I realized it was Aubrey Hepburn, I knew I needed to buy it! Not only do I think Aubrey Hepburn was a great role model but Breakfast at Tiffany’s is probably one of my favorite movies.

OPI Breakfast at Tiffany’s On the Go Kit came with a few products which intrigued me to say the least.

The kit included the Nail Envy Original which is a nail strengthener, an Avoplex Cuticle Oil-to-go, Avoplex High Intensity Hand & Nail Cream and 3 Wipe Off! Acetone-Free Lacquer Remover Wipes.

I can’t wait to try Nail Envy because for some reason my nails have been quicker to chip than usual. 😦

FYI, this deal only cost me $9.99, which isn’t bad considering that OPI is somewhat an expensive brand!

 

Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson “Kiss Goodnight”

Happy Monday loves.

Hope your weekend was fun and unstressful!

Kandee Johnson, makeup blogger and vlogger, collaborated with Sinful Colors in 2 different lines! I pretty much “eeked” when I found this polish in my Influenster Fierce VoxBox. I applied this nail polish on Wednesday and it hasn’t chipped, which never happens! I tend to use my hands for work, so my polish usually chips without a doubt.

It’s such a pretty color! Its a baby blue with tiny iridescent glitter and only used 2 coats (mind you, I didn’t apply a top coat either).

This is the Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson Anime Collection “Kiss Goodnight”.This is no doubt a spring color I look forward to wear again.


What do you gals think?! Anyone else get the Influenster Fierce VoxBox? I would love to know what other colors you got! πŸ™‚

 

 

Kiko Milano Smart Nail Lacquer “38 Metallic Copper”

Happy Monday loves, only a week away from Christmas!!

I don’t know about your weather, but wow it’s pretty chilly here in California!

I went to the mall a few weeks ago and I just had to walk into the Kiko Milano makeup store. I’ve been looking for a change in nail polish colors and I’ve never had a polish from them so I took the plunge and bought it. It goes on retail for $2.90 and it’s 7.0ml (which is not bad at all in my opinion)

Pros:

*It does dry quickly, I can easily fit it in my purse for travel if needed and the bristles are large which make it easier to distribute it evenly.

Cons:

*My only con would have to be that I had to reapply the polish three times to get the color I wanted and yet it didn’t come out as it shows in the bottle.

Overall, I like this polish, I definitely would love to try the other polishes both the Smart nail lacquers and the other types. The color comes out as a lighter copper, almost looking like a rose gold color. Who doesn’t like rose gold?!

Mineral Fusion Garnet

Happy Monday loves, welcome to Daylight Savings!

I’m back to my Mani Mondays and I’m loving this color I’m wearing right now.

A little background to how I found this cosmetic line:

I was on Eventbrite and saw a beauty event being held at the Lazy Acres grocery store in Long Beach. They had a somewhat bigger booth and had plenty of skincare, hair care, cosmetics and nail polish. Of course the first thing I went to was the nail polish! I haven’t purchased nail polish in quite some time now, so I figured I would splurge a little bit. And hey, it’s a new brand I’ve never heard about till I saw the event.

 

I think what brought me closer to buying this polish was knowing that it’s a vegan nail polish and it’s cruelty free. I’ve never purchased a vegan nail polish to be honest and wanted to have one! garnet

I’m one of those who likes to have at least one color from different brands.

I’ve been looking for a deep red recently and when I noticed that the name was Garnet, I just had to have it! Dark deep red is all the rage this season and who can beg to differ!

Only con to this color is that I had to use 3 coats to get it to be this dark.

I’m glad I’m back to doing Mani Mondays, what do you guys think of the color?! πŸ™‚

 

Essie She’s PamperedΒ 

Happy Monday loves. Hope you all had a great weekend. Sorry about the missing week but work was kicking my butt. :-/ But I am back!

A few weeks ago, I was shopping at the .99 cent only store just looking around to buy some things I was looking for. However, to my surprise, I came in and found a few tables of drugstore beauty products for only $1!!! We’re talking about Maybelline, Sally Hansen, Loreal, and believe it or not…Essie!!

Without a doubt I pretty much bought all of the Essie nail polishes that were available and of course picked ones that I liked.

I’ve been looking for a basic red for quite awhile and have finally found it! Here I’m wearing Essie’s “She’s Pampered”. It’s a beautiful shiny red that’s perfect for an everyday look.

What do you guys think? Ever found a major drugstore makeup brand at the dollar store?!

Revlon ColorStay Sunburst!

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. πŸ™‚

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?! πŸ™‚ What’s your opinion about jelly polishes?
