NYC Color 247 Prince Street

Good morning loves! Happy Monday!

I have a guilty confession to make…  I haven’t bought nail polishes in awhile and it’s kililing me! lol the last thing I bought nail wise was a basecoat. (That’s for another blog post)

So as I was going through my nail polish pile trying to find a polish I haven’t blogged about yet and I found a pretty shiny metallic purple that is a little bright.

It’s the NYC Color Minute 247 Prince Street and for the accent nail I used the CoverGirl Scalding Emerald which is from the Hunger Games limited edition. I love using these polishes for an accent nail.

Influenster’s Frosty VoxBox Review

Hi Loves!

Hope you all are enjoying your Wednesday.

I was lucky enough to get picked this time for the Frosty VoxBox from Influenster. It’s been awhile since they sent me a VoxBox.

This Frosty Voxbox included:

 

frostbox

*No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Sachet (Full Sized: $29.99)

A clinical proven serum that is more effective at reducing the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles for younger looking skin in two weeks. You can purchase this at Target. It also came in with a $2 off coupon.

*NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum ($1.99)

There’s at least 20 different shades and it lasts up to 6 hours and is very moisturizing. Personally, I’m not a fan of Sugar Plum shade just because it doesn’t really show on me.

*Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea

It came with two green tea bags and it has a interesting taste actually. It’s made with finest green tea leaves, peppermint and other botanicals. I’ll find a way to make a relaxing hot drink with it since it’s been cold for the past two days in SoCal!

*EcoTools Hair Brush ($10.99)

There are five different types of brush head shapes that belong to the EcoTools Hair Brush line. I received the Full Volume Styler. It’s ultra comfort, and has a lightweight design which creates gorgeous volume and style. It distributes hair’s natural moisturizers for ultimate shine  while it nurtures hair and scalp.

*Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover ($7.49)

It gently removes all eye makeup including long wearing mascara without any oily residue. It really works wonders especially when removing a smokey eye look.

*Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner ($4.49)

This eyeliner is ultra smooth and has a creamy formula that easily glides. The shade I received is 001 Black. I personally am not really a fan unless I lightly heat up the liner before I use it.

*McCormick Gourmet Thyme ($4.79)

It has a light minty flavor that is distinctively warm and aromatic. It can be used in breakfast casseroles, hearty soups, stews, stuffing and oven-roasted chicken. I personally am going to use this for a Greek Yogurt Ranch dressing and a Mixed Greens Lasagna.

*Fruit Vines Bites ($1.28-$1.79)

They are a new, soft, chewy fruit candy from the Red Vines family and it comes with two available flavors: strawberry and cherry. They are low far and made with no preservatives. It comes in three different sizes: 2oz single bag, a 5 oz hanging bag and a 10 oz resealable stand up bag and can be found at Walmart, Walgreens, Target and Rite Aid. I got the cherry flavor and since I’m not a cherry fan, I may give it to my sister. lol

Columbus Circle Crimson Saturday

Hi lovlies!
Î hope you all are having a great weekend so far!

I know I was supposed to post a nail polish shade on Friday, but work kicked my butt this week. Haha (insert sad face here)

This nail polish is the NYC In a Minute nail polish in the shade 205 Columbus Circle Crimson. I found this awesome gem in Target in the clearance section. This is probably one of the best reds I have found!

The accent nail would be the Maybelline New York Color Show in the shade of Twilight Rays 240.

I hope you loves enjoyed this swatch!
Stay tuned for a few new skincare reviews I’m working on. 🙂

Skyline Blue meets Navy Narcissist

“Your willingness to break out of the old patterns means you’re well on your way toward realizing a whole new you.” -Scott Barnes

Hey Everyone, hope everyone is having a great weekend!

So I was doing my nails a few days ago using the New York Color (NYC) long lasting nail enamel in Skyline Blue. But the next day, there were a few chips in there. No one ever like those, right? Well I figured I’d try to cover it up so I tried this idea out.

I used a Maybelline Color Show Metallics in Navy Narcissist which is a dark metallic-ally sparkly blue.

I basically used a cuticle stick to place some of the polish from the brush to the cuticle stick. I tried to use the pointy part but it didn’t work that great so I tried using the side of it and this is what it became!!

Not bad for a first time try. 🙂

Skyline Blue is a light pastel blue with a little bit of white glitter. This is one of my favorite NYC colors I love to use in the summer.

Happy Easter to all my Orthodox Friends! I was at CVS pharmacy and looking at the New York Color nail polishes. I was pretty interested in the new spring colors. I picked up the color in “Lexington Lilac 147”. It’s a light pinkish purple color.

Little did I know, I had a similar color from Ulta called “Tutu Cute” and it’s almost the same color. 🙂 this one is more of a darker version of pink and purple.

Its a good thing, that they’re both similar in color. Especially if you’re tight on money, the NYC color is only 0.99 while Ulta’s brand is $6.

Here you can see the difference of the colors. Not too much though thankfully. 🙂
