Lush Lacquer Black Friday and Illamasqua Purity


I was browsing through my polish and came across this amazing glitter bomb from Lush Lacquer. I'm not sure what took me so long to try her out but I am completely in love! I used 1 coat of Black Friday over Wet N' Wild Black.  This is a beautiful combination and the glitter just pops over black. It's like a party on my nails.
 



I picked up Purity during the Sephora sale. Purity was a pure-challenge to apply. I'm not sure if it was due to me being tired or just a bad formula. Either way, it took quite a bit of cleaning to get a decent appearance. It is gorgeous, so I guess it was worth all of the trouble and the 3 coats. 

Those are my latest NOTD's. Hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by!

This new collection features a palette ranging from sky and sea-colored hues of blues and gray to reds, burgundies and browns inspired by some of the city’s most iconic elements – Chinatown, the Golden Gate bridge and the Embarcadero.

“To me, the women of San Francisco and the city itself really epitomize today’s multifaceted beauty consumer,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “San Francisco offers a European flair with distinct West Coast attributes. These elements inspired a collection of urban chic nail lacquer shades, thanks to the sophisticated combination of high fashion and eclectic street style.
“With twelve colors ranging from moody grays and blues to garnet and ruby jewel tones, these lacquers are designed to accessorize fall’s hottest looks, from military details to winter whites,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “On fall runways, models were seen wearing luxurious textures from head to toe. The three new Liquid Sand nail lacquers incorporate the texture trend through nails, with rich matte finishes in colors to complement the season’s fashion.”

NOTD: Apipila Pink Flowers


A quick post to share my NOTD.  For the base I used MISA Double Dutch and stamped with Zoya Carly using an image plate from Apipila, p2.  


Carly stamps very well. 

I really like the way it turned out. Fancy but not too over the top for the office. 

I hope you like it. 

Thanks for stopping by :)

Julep Modern Beauty - May 2013 Box

Hey Beauties! Today I wanted to share my Julep May box with you. I haven't done a Julep review in a while but I still receive the boxes every month.  This month's box was a little different, in addition to offering nail polish, they are extending their market into the beauty world and offered beauty products this month.

I'm labeled an American Beauty which I believe was switched over to Modern Beauty. The Modern Beauty receives beauty products in addition to nail polish, or just all beauty products alone. I actually meant to switch my box over this month, but I forgot (as usual).  So the box I received had all beauty products. I was debating on trying the lip scrub, so I was still happy with what I got.

First of all, I loved the packaging this month. I thought it was very elegant.  I received the: New York Jazz Trio lipstick minis, Sugar Smooch brown sugar lip scrub and Volumizing Mascara. I also received 4 cute hair clips (not picture).


Here are the products outside of the packaging. The lip scrub really smells like brown sugar. 


New York Lipstick Trio
Tea for Two - nude shimmer lip sheer
 Satin Doll - poppy lip sheer
Lady in  Red - matte crimson

Swatches


I'm still laughing at the fact that Tea for Two didn't show up on me at all! I'll probably use it as a lip moisturizer. Satin Doll is really pretty. Although it's sheer, you can still see the color quite well.  Lady in Red looked very red on me and not crimson. I'll have to play around with these to see how they wear.

I may try to get the Bombshell Box which includes two polishes that I like and the Paris lipstick trio which has a cranberry and bubblegum lip sheer.  Overall I was happy with my box this month. I'm very excited to try out the lip scrub. I think I may have tried one once in my life!
