November 2016 Product Empties

Thursday, December 1, 2016

Here's my product empties post for November. Its almost the end of the year as we enter into December. This year seemed to really fly by for me. I finished quite a few products so let's hear my thoughts on them.

November 2016 Product Empties

1. SKIN&LAB Dr. Vita Clinic Gently Vita Exfoliator
This was my first peeling type exfoilator and I loved it. It was very effective and every time I used it, my face will feel very clean and refreshed. It has a great scent to it and its so cool to see my dead skin peel away when I use this product. I'm going to definitely repurchase another bottle of it. You can check out my full review on it here.

2. L'Oreal Paris Hair Expertise Nutri-Gloss Luminizer Shampoo
I got this product from Influenster to try out and it was nice. It made my hair feel and look good when I used it. It also had a nice scent to it too. Even though I liked it, I probably won't purchase a bottle because I prefer 2 in 1 hair products since its more convenient and easier for me to use.

3. A.H.C Whitening Special Gen Serum
This was a pretty decent sample size of this whitening serum. I quite liked it too. It had a nice scent to it and it absorbed pretty well into my skin. I didn't notice a lot of whitening happening but it did help to keep my skin feeling moisturized. This product would be something I would look into purchasing in a full size of too.

4. Listerine Total Care Zero
My most favorite mouth wash from Listerine. I've tried a few other kinds from Listerine but nothing compares to this one for me. It always leaves my mouth feeling very clean and refreshed every time I use it.

5. L'Oreal Paris Hair Expertise Nutri-Gloss Luminizer Conditioner
Like the shampoo I used up, I received this conditioner from Influenster to try out and it was good. It helped to moisturize my hair and left it feeling pretty soft when I rinsed it out. Probably won't repurchase it though since I do prefer 2 in 1 hair products more.

6. Lassie'el Night Miracle Brightening Pearl Shell
This is an overnight mask pack that your suppose to leave on during the night and rinse off in the morning. It came with two packs which your suppose to use up in one go when you open one. This particular one had shimmer to it which I didn't really like. It did keep my skin very moisturized during the night though which I liked.

7. Lassie'el Night Miracle Soothing Mango
I liked this overnight mask much more than the brightening pearl shell one since it didn't have any shimmer in it. It smelled faintly like mangoes which I liked and it was very moisturizing on my skin too. One pack was a lot for just my face and neck so I used any leftovers on other dry areas of my body like elbows,  hands, and etc.

That's all for my product empties for November. A lot of these products I used up were expiring very soon so I'm happy that I was able to finish them all up before they turned bad. Let me know if you've tried any of the products that I mentioned and what you've finished up too.

Matte Neutral and Turquoise Leopard Print

Monday, November 28, 2016

Happy Monday Blues! For today's manicure, I was inspired by this OPI Nordic Collection Leopard Print Nail Art from Chalkboard Nails that I saw when I was googling leopard print manicures online.  I always like creating leopard print designs and I wanted to try it with a matte top coat too so here's the result of it.

Matte Neutral and Turquoise Leopard Print Nail Art

I used Essie Very Structured on all the nails. I created the leopard print using American Apparel Port and MisQs GR001 with a dotting tool. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat and NYC Matte Me Crazy Mattifying Top Coat.

I really like how these turned out even though the base polish turned out a bit darker than what I was expecting. I think adding a matte top coat really helped to blend the turquoise and neutral colors together better too. I did wish the lighting was a bit better when I took these pictures since they look pretty dark here. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Share Your Polish Collection

Tuesday, November 22, 2016

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is to share your polish collection. To be honest, my nail polish collection isn't really organized since I just have them all randomly stored in two Melmers that I purchased from Michael's. Since each drawer basically looks almost the same, I'm just going to share one picture of it instead.

I try to keep most of the same brands together in one drawer if I can but most of my drawers look like the one above. I haven't purchased new polishes in a pretty long time so everything I own fits inside these two Melmers with some room to spare. I'm excited to see the everyone's polish collection since I think there's would be much more exciting than mine.

Matte Green and Teal Dry Brush Nail Art

Monday, November 21, 2016

Happy Monday Blues! For today's manicure, I'm showing a design I've done multiple times already using a fan brush. Its so simple to do and the end result always ends up looking pretty great too. Let's see it then.

Matte Green and Teal Dry Brush Nail Art

I used Sally Hansen Evening Fog on all the nails. I used the dry brush technique to apply on China Glaze Starboard and China Glaze Exotic Encounters horizontally and vertically on the nails. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat and then a coat of NYC Matte Me Crazy Mattifying Top Coat.

It's been too long since I've used a matte top coat so it was great using it in this manicure. The only negative thing was that the green and teal did end up looking very similar to one another on the nails. What do you think?

Orly It's Not Rocket Science

Thursday, November 17, 2016

Hi everyone! Today, I'm sharing a polish swatch. I've been trying to share more swatch posts lately since I have so many polishes in my collection that I haven't worn and its much easier to do compared to nail art designs. This particular green polish I'm showing is a pretty unique shade in my collection so let's see it.

Orly It's Not Rocket Science is a murky mossy green with gold, yellow, and blue flecks with a slight duochrome to it in a sheer swampy green base. The color is one of those ugly shades that not everyone would like but there fun to own a few. Its definitely a unique color in my collection. The formula was nice so application was easy on it. This is two coats.

The blue flecks and shift to this polish isn't noticeable in my swatches but in real life, you can really see it. Its so unexpected and makes the polish that much more unique to me. What do you think?
