Dearberry Today Nail Lacquer #20 Fantasy

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Hi everyone! The work dinner I went to on Monday was fun but I got a massive headache after coming home. I should have worn my hood when I was outside since I think the cold weather made me feel kind of dizzy after I got back home. I'm feeling better now so let's see today's nail polish swatch.

Dearberry Today Nail Lacquer #20 Fantasy is a orange creme. I only own a handful of orange polishes so I'm happy to have this one in my collection. Its a bright orange but I feel like its not overly bright so that makes it a bit more wearable on the nails. Formula and application was great on it too. This is two coats.

I'm really happy with this orange polish. I don't wear it nearly enough though but I'm going to try to since I feel like its pretty wearable on the nails. What do you think?

Born Pretty Z005 Ocean Illusion

Monday, December 11, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I can't believe its almost the end of the year. I actually have a work dinner to attend today so that will be fun since were doing a little gift exchange as well. Anyways, for today's blue polish, I'm swatching a nail polish I received from Born Pretty Store to review so let's check it out.

Born Pretty Z005 Ocean Illusion is a sheer blue polish with duochrome micro glitter that shifts between blue and purple in it. This polish is pretty sheer so it will take quite a few coats to build up the coverage. I definitely recommend layering this polish since I feel like you can see the duochrome effect much better that way. I found the formula on this polish pretty good even though its a sheer color. I also really like that the brush on this polish is the wide rounded type of brush since I feel it makes application easier. This is four coats.

I'm very happy with this polish but its a shame that you can't really see the blue to purple shift here. Its definitely a color that stands out when you have it on. I'm usually not a fan of polishes that require a lot of coats but in this case, I don't mind it that much since the color really is awesome. What do you think?

November 2017 Product Empties

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Here's my product empties post for November. I don't have a lot of product empties this month so let's get right into it.

November 2017 Product Empties

1. Listerine Total Care Zero Mouthwash
My favorite mouthwash that I've been using for quite a while now. I've finished quite a few bottles of it already and plan to continue using it unless I find something better.

2. Rose Mine Dermaceutical Azulene Calming Gel
I was mainly using this at night but I think it would work much better in the morning. It kind of works and feels similar to aloe vera gel. Its a blue tinted gel and it really really cooling and soothing when applied to the skin. I liked it and would repurchase it to use for the Summer in particular.

3. Rivecowe Sebum Control Convenient Compact
This was my everyday face powder and I quite liked it. It doesn't have that much coverage but it kept my skin from appearing shiny/oily when I used it. It took me quite a while to use it all up too.

That's all for my product empties. Not a lot of products but I'm still happy that I finished a few things.

Blue with Purple Tribal Inspired Stamping

Monday, December 4, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! For today's blue manicure, I'm sharing some stamping I did using a stamping plate from Born Pretty Store I was sent to review. I own a lot of stamping plates from Born Pretty Store and I've always been pleased with them so I really did like this one as well. Let's see the manicure.

Blue with Purple Tribal Inspired Stamping Nail Art

First, I used Essie Rock The Boat on all the nails. Next,  I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish #2603 with stamping plate Geometry BP-X36 from Born Pretty Store. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your entire order. Finished with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Here's a closer look at the stamping plate Geometry BP-X36. I like the mix of designs as well as the different sizes ranging from full nail to smaller designs that you can stamp onto your nails. This stamping plate is great for someone who likes either floral or tribal/aztec inspired designs.

I used a clear stamper to get the image centered on the nails and I think I did a pretty good job. Really happy with how the images stamped onto my nails and I like the mix of designs on the stamping plate too. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Camo

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is camo. This manicure was a bit rushed since the weather during the day I took these pictures wasn't the best and I had to work quickly before it got too dark. So, let's check out my design.

Neutral Colored Camouflage Nail Art

First, I used China Glaze Mahogany Magic on all the nails. Next, I created the simple camouflage print with Nicole by OPI My Jay Or The Highway!, OPI I Brake For Manicures, and American Apparel Hassid with a dotting tool. Lastly, I finished with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

It's been a really long time since I've done a camouflage print so I thought these turned out just okay. I went with a more neutral color scheme which I think fits with the cold weather right now. What do you think?
