Scented Pink Polish with Silver Abstract Stamping

Friday, August 26, 2016

Hi everyone! So for today's nail art design, I decided to use one of the few scented polish I own for the base polish. I kind of regretted it afterwards though since the scent on the polish gave me a headache for the rest of the day. The color was pretty though so let's see the nail art.

First, I used Revlon Parfumerie Ginger Melon on all the nails except the ring. Next, I stamped with China Glaze Devotion with stamping plate BP-31 from Born Pretty Store. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your entire order. For the ring nail, I used Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud and topped it off with China Glaze Point Me To The Party. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.

The scented polish from Revlon applied a little uneven on the nails but overall, I thought the manicure turned out okay. The stamping looks great but the glitter I used kind of bubbled on my accent nail pretty badly. What do you think?

China Glaze Pizzazz

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Hi everyone! Here's a quick swatch post of a glitter polish from China Glaze. I realize I own quite a few of these multi-colored glitters like the one I'm showing today. They all look pretty mcuh the same on the nails so its really just a choice of which brand you prefer. Anyways, let's see the polish.

China Glaze Pizzazz has a mix of silver, blue, green, fuchsia, orange, and yellow hexagon glitters in a clear base. This glitter reminds me of many rainbow glitters from other brands so its not very unique of a polish to me. The formula was good and for application, I did have to use the dabbing method to get the glitters evenly distributed on my nails. If you want full coverage, I suggest sponging the glitter onto the nails.  This is one coat over Essie Splash Of Grenadine.

This glitter polish was really nice to work with. It had a good mix of colors in it and application on it was pretty great with just one coat applied on the nails. I already own a few like this one though so its not the most unique glitter polish I've seen though. What do you think?

Blue with Starburst Inspired Dotting Pattern

Monday, August 22, 2016

Happy Monday Blues! For today's nail art design, I was in the mood to use my dotting tool. Your able to create so many different patterns and designs with a dotting tool so here's one I created on the spot with a mix of different colors.

Blue with Starburst Inspired Dotting Pattern Nail Art

I used Sephora by OPI Havana Dreams on my ring and middle nail. I created the starburst dotting pattern design with a dotting tool using Sephora by OPI Skinny Jeans, American Apparel Rouge, and American Apparel Mouse. For the rest of the nails, I applied Sephora by OPI Skinny Jeans. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.

I'm so happy with this starburst dotting pattern design. I didn't really have an idea on what it was going to look like but it turned out pretty nice. I want to try out this design with a different color combination now too. What do you think?

Packaging
The Jungle Bontancis Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub comes packaged in a nice all white cardboard outer box. There's black text on the box and there's also a nice embossed leaf design on the front. Pretty simple packaging but its nice and clean which I like. Inside, the scrub comes in a squeeze tube package which I like a lot since it makes it easy to use when your in the shower or bath. Unlike the outer cardboard packaging, the design on the tube is very pretty and detailed. It has a red to orange gradient with a leafy design on it. It kind of makes me feel like I'm going somewhere tropical. The text on it is mostly in white and the name of the product is clearly labeled front and centered. Overall, you can tell a lot of thought was put into packaging this scrub which I like seeing.

Texture and Scent
The Jungle Bontancis Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub has a grainy and thick consistency to it when you first squeeze it out of the tube. As you work the scrub in, you can definitely feel it exfoliating your skin since it has bits of small walnut shell granules in it. My skin is pretty dry and I do have dry patches so after even using this scrub once, I could tell a difference. All the oils in the scrub does help to keep the skin moisturized while your working the scrub into your skin. It left my skin feeling very smooth but I do recommend applying a good body lotion afterwards to help hydrate the skin even more.

When I first opened the scrub, the scent on it reminded me of an aroma therapy perfume which is a relaxing scent for a lot of people. After using it several times now, the smell isn't as strong when your using it in the shower. Its not something I'm really fond of but I'm okay with it since I really liked the results on how it made my skin feel afterwards. The scent does linger a little on the skin after you use the scrub but the smell is completely gone the next day for me.

How to Use
Apply the scrub to damp skin. Massage in a circular motion over the entire body. Rinse well. Use 2-3 times weekly.

My Review
The Jungle Bontancis Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub was a great exfoliating body scrub for me. This was my first experience actually using a body scrub and it definitely won't be my last now. It helped to get rid of my dead skin and dry patches on my body while leaving my skin pretty soft after I rinsed the scrub off. I do recommend applying a good body lotion after using the Jungle Bontancis Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub though to help keep the skin hydrated and to lock in the moisture. The only negative thing about this product would have to be the scent on it for me. It kind of has an aroma therapy perfume smell which I don't particularly like. It would have been better if it was more of a citrus scent instead. Other than that, I'm happy with the Jungle Bontancis Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub.

Final Thoughts
Overall, I would recommend the Jungle Bontancis Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub if your looking for a good exfoliating body scrub that's effective and for people who have dry skin in particular. If your sensitive to strong scents, this might be a product for you to skip. For me, I can handle the scent on it even though its not my favorite thing about it. I'm pleased with the results of how it left my skin feeling after using it so that's why I still like it a lot. It would be something for me to look into repurchasing it again once my bottle of it runs out or if I don't find another body scrub that I like better than this one.

Pink Gold Foil with Rosy Leaf and Floral Stamping

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Hi everyone! For today's nail art design, I will be using the last two items from Born Pretty Store that I got sent to review. I'll be using a vibrant rose stamping polish with a floral stamping plate so let's see what I did.

Pink Gold Foil with Rosy Leaf and Floral Stamping Nail Art

First, I used Hard Candy Lil Lilac on all the nails. Next, I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish 21# with stamping plate Y008 from Born Pretty Store. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your entire order. Finished with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.

Here's a closer look at stamping plate Y008. This stamping plate is split into two sections with either the stamping polish being the floral design or the dominant base color on your nails.

Born Pretty Store - Stamping Plate Y008 Review

That rose stamping polish was such a dream to work with. It was very opaque and it picked up the image perfectly. I'm loving how these turned out too. So girly and pretty looking. I guess I was on a floral kick when I chose these two recent stamping plates from Born Pretty Store to review. What do you think?
