Julep Diane a muddy dark green
Sinfulcolors Green Ocean a sheer green flaky and glitter polish St. Patty line 2012
I fortunately snatched up Sinfulcolors Green Ocean at Walgreen's this week using their friends and family 15% off discount. The polish only cost me .69 cents plus tax! What a deal!
Its really hard to capture the true effect of the polish on top of green. Its gorg in the light.
Excited that I received my Julep Maven box for the month of April. They added some Easter eggs and toe separators for pedi's. I am a "It Girl" so I received these goodies. I am still hoping to get the golden box...my dream ♥
♥Niecy a bright pink creme
♥Jessica a baby blue creme
♥Penelope opaque almost white creme with a hint of blush
Look at the cute packaging everything was secure very nicely.

This is my first half wig or wig period and I am really feeling it! This half wig is by Outre called Teri in the color 4. Its the wrong color but I don't care you cant tell in the picture but its to light. In the beauty supply store it look different oh well. I love how it gives my a fuller look I feel so diva in this!
Where have I been sleeping?! half wigs are going to be my next experience. Teri has a comb in the front and the back no drawstring but bobby pins work.
Cost: $24.99 at local beauty supply
Let me know your thoughts below! What are some good sites to purchase hair? I found SamsBeauty.com and they have a clearance section!
Here she is from the side!
While going to my local Walgreens I stopped at the standard Sinfulcolors display looking for Cinderella. With not one in sight I walked away looking at other beauty products. Well I decided to circle into the center where they normally display special products. Guess what?! saw a new Sinfulcolors display actually 2! I almost screamed! *so sad I know*
I snatched up Cinderella, Luminary and another fabulous color from the Sheer Shimmer Collection. I am so excited to show you all these polishes. Now some of the bloggers already had the opportunity to play with many of them but its new to me.
♥Julep Nail Therapy 1 coat
♥2 coats of luminary
♥Seche Vite Top coat
This polish was interesting to apply it seemed thick and quick to dry. Overall, I think it came out nicely. A great summer color.
What are your thoughts have any of you had a chance to pick up anything from this collection?
Today's polish is Megan by Julep a Seattle, WA based company who is well known for the Julep Maven program through social media. I received this color as part of my monthly subscription from one of my previous boxes.
This is a lovely shade of blue with great reflex of light. A great fall color or if your in the mood for a darker shade.

Wet n Wild has some new lipsticks that I found in my drugstore last week. I am in love with the color pay off they are so pigmented and a excellent price. These were each under $3 what a great buy. Since summer is coming up all of these are fabulous colors to brighten your day.
Each of the shades are matte except for "its a girl" which is considered a mega shield lipstick a.k.a moisturizing. Some people say that the mega shields are comparable to Revlon's lipbutters. It still feels like a lipstick to me.
The colors were easy to apply I did apply some lip moisturizer before applying the lipsticks. Hopefully the swatches are clear enough for you tell the color differences.
For reference purpose I am a shade NC45 or NC44 in MAC in case you are trying to figure out skin tones.
Does anyone have these shades already? How do you like them? Leave a comment below on your thoughts!
I am excited to review these lovely babies! Well this product is called Kiss Nail Dress the specific design I have is called "Cocktail." I love that its pink and almost in a zebra pattern my two favorites put together. I decided to only place these on the last 2 nails for a different effect.
Earlier I mentioned that I received this nail kit through Influenster click here to read that post. So lets get to the product!
These were easy to apply! Here are the steps I used.
♥Start with clean nails
♥Pick out the size you need
♥Pill off the nail dress
♥Apply starting at the cuticle and press out air pockets as you go along
♥File off the tips (nail file included)
So far I am on day 2 of wearing these lovely and no lifting has happened so that's a plus. Kiss claims these can last for up to 10 days. These are available in 18 different styles with many having 3D jeweled designs. There is no need for a top coat and when you are ready to take them off just peel them off. Be careful when peeling you do not want to damage your nails.
Here are some kudos for this product:
♥Retails for $6.99 available in all major drugstore and mass retailers like, Walmart, Walgreens, and CVS.
♥The kit includes sizes to do your toes! So you can match your mani to your pedi.
♥They will not dry out making them available for use for next time.
♥Again you get 28 strips!
I really like this product I feel like this also gives my nails some additional protection by making them feel stronger.

While playing around I decided to pull out the Milani Paint Eyeshadow Palette that they had for last summer for a limited time. Using this palette is a great way to do a low key bright spring/summer look. You could also bring out the colors more with bright bases.
The exciting news is Milani is planning on bringing this palette back out with some new wheels 2! Start checking your areas pretty soon.
Hello my fellow polish whores! I just wanted to share with you some information about the Julep Maven program that anyone can join. Now chances are you already have heard about Julep through other blogs or even Youtube. Well I have been a member for under a year now and I absolutely love it!
Each month I get a box with wonderful products included such as hand treatments, lipgloss, and even chocolate. Of course you get polish, each box has about $40 to $60 of product included. You can choose to skip a month, choose another box, send your box to friend or even cancel.
How you get started is that you take a style quiz to find out what style you most likely associate with. At the end you are placed in to a category in which your polish is chosen from. I am a "It Girl" say you decide you don't like the group you were placed into then you can take the quiz again.
This all cost $19.99 a month and I haven't had any regrets on signing up for the program. My readers can get a special introductory price of 1 cent! use the following code:

A quick stop at Bath and Body Works prompted me to look at the lip treatments. I have some other lip glosses from Bath and Body Works but they are glossy. I wanted an actual treatment and decided to try one of the mentha's... there are quite a few to choose from. After looking over the packaging and reading the labels I decided on this one.
Why? because my lips are super dry and I needed all the help I could get. This claims to have twice the moisturizers than the other ones. Plus I'm a sucker for packaging and got this one.
Here is what the applicator looks like:
You can see that this is a standard applicator making application pretty simple. Now to the gritty!
I love this stuff its super minty not over the top shiny on the lips. It makes my lips feel like they have been loved by the moisture fairies. Use this at night and you will wake up with super soft lips! The mint is a plus and I always feel fresh.
The consistency is not to watery like the other lip glosses Bath and Body Works carries. Its slightly thicker and from what I have read this formula is thicker than the other mentha formulas. Here is a pick of the consistency:
The price might be a turn off factor but if you really like this like I do you will just deal with it.
Product Facts: .5oz/14g for $8 USD
○2 coats of Hayden
○L.A. Colors Art Deco polish in White
○Out the Door Top Coat
I so wanted some ice cream after doing these. Super fun for the summer.
I had to pick up another lipbutter this time no pink. Last summer I really wanted to rock the coral lipsticks etc. So I am making up for it. Initially I did not think I was going to like this one. But to my surprise it was a instant favorite.
Revlon has really made a great product here. These are so moisturizing and I love to re-apply them. Plus these are apart of the permanent line...how dope is that? Love it.
For those of you on the fence about these definitely give them a try. Tons of colors to choose from of course I like the brighter shades or the nudes. Just saw them at Walmart for $6 or you can search for deals at the drugstores especially when Revlon hits 40% off.
*Sorry for the blurry shot I was not the best camera pro for this one.
My beautiful polish lovers I pulled out the Xtreme Wear by Sally. I think I picked up this color last summer its called Lacey Lilac which is a beautiful pastel purple great for spring/summer.
♥Nutra Nail Gel Strengthener

♥2 coats of China Glaze Fairy Dust
♥A coat of Out the Door
♥Use the Heart Stencil out of the Express Nail Stamp Kit (found at drugstores)
I love how when the lights hit my nails they just sparkle definitely an easy way to brighten the day.
