Blogmas Day Twelve: My Go To Nail Polishes For Christmas

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Twelve! I can’t believe it’s already Day Twelve, it has absolutely flown by. Normally for the last post of Blogmas I show the festive nails I’ve done during December, but this year I didn’t really do super festive nails. I had them sparkly red for the first couple weeks and now they’re matte white. So what I’m going to do for this post is show you my go to nail polishes for Christmas.

IMG_6905

I have two dark green polishes that I like to use because they give Christmas tree vibes. The first is the Dermelect Me polish. This is a peptide infused polish that is dbp, toluene and formaldehyde free. This the darker of the two polishes. 

IMG_6906

The second green is Pure Ice 303 – Free Spirit. This is a medium green, but if you want it to be darker it builds nicely. I also like to use this for St. Patrick’s Day nails. 

IMG_6907

Next I have a couple of red polishes that the holidays wouldn’t be complete without. The first is Sinful Colors 852 – GoGo Girl. This is one of those polishes that I’ve repurchased many times over the years and it’s a classic red that I think everyone should have in their polish collection. 

IMG_6908

The other red is a sparkly polish, and it’s Pure Ice 1026 – Hit The Floor. This is a darker red, but I really like it and it gives a great sparkle to any look. 

IMG_6909

Moving on, I have a couple of silver polishes that I really like. Silver isn’t a color of polish that I wear a lot, but I do like it. The first one is the p2 Techno Chrome polish in 010 Steel Drama. I always wear this with a high shine top coat, but on it’s own it does have a great shine and it lives up to it’s chrome title. 

IMG_6910

The second silver polish is a more recent purchase, but I’ve gotten a lot of use out of it so far. It’s the Sinful Colors 923 – Queen Of Beauty. This is the perfect silver sparkle, it’s great on it’s own but it also makes a fantastic topper for any other polish. 

IMG_6911

Next we have white polish, actually the polish I have on my nails right now. The Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in 110 – Hard To Get. This is a polish I use all year and it lends itself really well to shiny and matte looks. 

IMG_6912

Second to last we have a gold polish, but it’s a really interesting gold. It’s Kokie Cosmetics NP45 – Euphoria. This has some other colors in it, so when it shifts it can come across as blue/green toned. It’s very pretty. 

IMG_6913

And the last polish we have is a blue polish and it’s Salon Perfect 207 – Blue Ribbon. This is another polish I’ve repurchased many times over the years and it makes great looks for Christmas, but it’s also really nice for summer. A solid polish if you ask me. 

IMG_6914

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have a go to polish or polishes for Christmas time let me know and I’d love to know what festive nails you did this year. 

Until next time, thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed Blogmas, and I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas :).

Limited Edition Halloween Walmart Beauty Box Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I have a different unboxing, a Halloween beauty box. I haven’t done a holiday beauty box unboxing before so when I saw this I knew I had to buy it. This box comes from Walmart Beauty and you may or may not know that after the spring Walmart Beauty Box they decided to take off the summer to revamp the box. So I guess this is the intro to that relaunch, although I did get an email a few days ago saying that this week I’m going to charged for the fall box, so the fall boxes are coming. This box in particular cost me $10.00, which is double the price of the normal WBB, and came with a little pamphlet that gave a description of each of the items. I got to choose between two, both had the same base items but one came with an eyeliner and the other with a lipstick. I chose the eyeliner option because I knew I would get more use out of it and I haven’t worn a drugstore eyeliner in years so I wanted to try one out.

The box itself is all white with a white Walmart logo on the top and it’s white on the inside as well. Because this is the Halloween box I was hoping for a pop of orange, black or purple or even some festive tissue paper.

IMG_6479

IMG_6480 (1)

The first item we have in this box is the Splat Hair Chalk in Midnight Blue. This is basically hair dye but not, you take pieces of hair, lightly spray with hair spray, open the color compact, close it around the hair and slide it down your hair. Depending on how dark you want the color to be you can go over the already colored pieces of hair. And to set it just spray more hair spray. I haven’t used anything like this since I was a kid, but it’s a quick and easy way to get color into your hair, the Splat Hair Chalks come in a variety of colors, and once you’re over the color it washes out easily. 

IMG_6481

The next item we have is a Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelette. This is a single, but you can get this individually wrapped towelettes in a bag of 20. I always keep these on hand, the fact that they’re individually wrapped makes it easy to keep in your handbag, which I do, and I also really like these for taking off swatches because they get all the makeup off. 

IMG_6483

Moving on we have a Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow quad. This is the product that confused me when I saw it. On the website and in the pamphlet it shows a purple quad, to me it looks like 510, Precocious, but what I actually received was 500, Addictive, a neutral/brown quad. If this is a Halloween box the purple makes perfect sense, but I’m not sure how you would get the same effect with neutrals/browns. I also haven’t worn Revlon eyeshadow since I was in junior high, so I couldn’t tell you now how these shadows are going to perform. Normally I would do some swatches, but I’m going to give this to someone and I want it to be fresh for them. 

IMG_6484

Next up we have the Hard Candy Stroke of Gorgeous Liquid Eyeliner in 1807, Black To Basic. This is a matte eyeliner that says it’s easy to apply, mess free and dries down quickly. I’ve only tried Hard Candy lipsticks and nail polishes, so I’m interested to try this out and see how it performs. This has a nice tip on it and it seems like you could easily do thick or thin liner. I saw that this liner comes in different colors, so if I like it I might look into the other shades. 

IMG_6488

IMG_6489

Moving on we have the Milani Strobelight Liquid Highlighter in 06, 24K Gold. When they say gold, they mean gold. I do like liquid highlighters and when I saw this I was interested because I haven’t tried one from Milani. I think for me this might be a little too gold, but the formula seems nice and when the light hits it it is quite pretty. 

IMG_6491

IMG_6492

IMG_6500

The second to last item we have is the NYX Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in Red Haute. I’ve heard great things about the NYX Satin Lipsticks and based on the swatch I can see why. This is a really pretty shade of red and seems to be nicely pigmented. It claims to deliver up to four hours of hydration in one swipe, which I’ll be looking for when I wear it. All of the Shout Out Loud satins are infused with mango and shea butter and have a heart stamped into them which I think is adorable. 

IMG_6493

IMG_6494

IMG_6495

IMG_6501

And the last item we have is a Sinful Colors nail polish. This is the second thing that I saw that confused me. On the website and in the pamphlet it shows what looks to be a deeper sparkly red polish, maybe Sugar Sugar, and that’s one of the things that drew me in. But the polish I got was 852, Gogo Girl. I do like this polish, in fact I own this polish and it’s on my nails right now. It’s a nice shade of red and like the other Sinful Colors polishes it wears well. 

IMG_6499

IMG_6497

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I think it was alright. I was disappointed by a few things, but I’m really interested to see what the revamped seasonal boxes look like. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and have fun creating Halloween looks :).

April Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my April favorites. I have a fun mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my April Sephora Play Box, which I will link below if you haven’t read. My first Play favorite is the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. This is a holy grail product for me, I’ve been using it for a while and I always recommend it. It detoxifies, soothes the skin and helps with skins elasticity.

IMG_5434

My next favorite is the Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara in Black. I’ve worn this a few times since I got it and I really like it. There’s no clumping or transferring and it makes my lashes look full and long. Basically it does what it says on the tin and if you’re looking for a new mascara or just want to change it up then I definitely recommend giving this a try.

IMG_5431

IMG_5432

My last Play favorite is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dance Fever. I have a few of these Nars lip pencils and they’re some of my favorites. This one in particular is a really nice medium brown. These go on so smooth and have great staying power.

IMG_5438

IMG_5439

IMG_5440

I wanted to say quickly that as Sephora Play has ended I have subscribed to BoxyCharm and starting next month I will be unboxing those. I’m super excited about it and I hope you guys enjoy reading it.

And my last beauty favorite is the Sinful Colors Quick Bliss Nail Polish in 2674, Flushed. I’m always buying nail polish and when I saw the Quick Bliss line online, I was interested. The Quick Bliss line is quick dry, says it dries in 1 minute and I can attest to the fact that it dried down super quickly. They also have cherry oil which helps to protect from breakage. Flushed is a really pretty and sparkly pinky purple that goes a little bit gold when it hits the light.

IMG_5363

IMG_5362

Moving on I have a book favorite and it’s Tom Clancy’s Enemy Contact, A Jack Ryan Jr. Novel by Mike Maden. I’ve always really liked the Jack Ryan series, including the Amazon show. I haven’t read all of the books but after reading this one I picked up a few more. I really like that the series was expanded to Jack Ryan Jr and I think the writing is fantastic. This is definitely a series of books I recommend.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, and it’s the song A Conversation With Alice by Joe Bonamassa. This is a new song from Joe and I’ve been really liking it. I think the story behind it is great and I love the fact that he took his experience and turned it into a song. This song has a lot of elements that I like in a blues song and Joe plays slide, which I always really like. I first heard this on Spotify, but I’ll link the YouTube video below. It’s definitely worth a listen.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your April favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you all had a good April :).

March Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my March favorites. It seems like this month has been 97 years long and there’s been a lot going on, but I hope you’re all doing well. I have a good group of favorites this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my March Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that below if you haven’t read it. My first Play favorite is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black. This is a product I used long ago and loved and now having used it a few times since getting it, I still love it. It glides on really smooth, there is room for error with this liner which you don’t always get and once it dries then it’s not smudging or going anywhere.

IMG_5323

My next Play favorite is the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides. I’ve been using this since I got it and I really like it. It’s a rich cream that sinks in quickly and because it is whipped, feels nice and light on the skin. It makes my skin really soft and it feels very moisturized. Definitely a moisturizer I would recommend if you’re looking for a new one.

IMG_5322

And my last Play favorite is the Versace Bright Crystal perfume. This is a really well balanced scent. It’s fruity and floral with the perfect hint of freshness. A great scent for spring and summer and I have ordered a full size of this perfume. If you haven’t smelled this and you get the chance, I say definitely do.

IMG_5324

My next two favorites come from the winter Walmart Beauty Box, which I’ll link down below, and the first is the Curel Dry Skin Therapy Hydra Skin Moisturizer. I use the Curel Wet Skin Moisturizer and love that so I had high hopes for this and it delivered. It sinks in to the skin quickly, leaves my skin feeling really moisturized but not greasy and has a nice almost citrusy scent.

IMG_5238

My other Walmart Beauty Box favorite is the Color Club Nail Lacquer in 1198, It’s Complicated. This is a really pretty, nicely pigmented magenta shade. The formula is nice, it goes on smooth and for me two coats was perfect. It also held up pretty well and lasted on my nails once it was on. This is a brand I hadn’t purchased from before but now I’m definitely going to see what other polishes they have.

IMG_5242

IMG_5243

IMG_5254

And my last beauty favorite is the e.l.f. Bite Size Shadow palette in Rose Water. This is a mix of pinks and purples. The shimmers are really nicely pigmented and creamy and the mattes are very smooth. I’ve talked about a few of these and I definitely recommend them, they’re great little palettes.

IMG_5201

IMG_5212 (1)

Moving on I have a drink favorite and it’s the Pure Leaf Raspberry Tea. Pure Leaf is always my go to if I want a good tea in a bottle and I typically stick with the same one or two, but I love raspberry tea so I decided to try it and I’m glad I did. I also saw that Pure Leaf has some new and different teas and I picked up a Peach Hibiscus to try, and I’m excited about that. It’s the perfect spring/summer tea flavor.

I want to quickly mention something that isn’t exactly a favorite because I just started watching last night, but I’m 3 episodes in to Tiger King on Netflix and holy wow. It’s already not what I expected. No spoilers, but I want to know if you guys are watching/have watched and what do you think?

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s AC/DC’s album Rock Or Bust. Something I’ve been doing recently is a deep dive into some of my favorite bands/musicians and listening to music of theirs that I haven’t heard or have forgotten about. It’s been a lot of fun. The songs on this album are pretty short, but in this case it works. Like most AC/DC songs the chorus’ are catchy and when you hear a riff you know it’s them you’re listening to. Overall great album. Speaking of musicians I like, I want to wish Slowhand himself, Eric Clapton a happy 75th birthday. I’m listening to music as I write this.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your March favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you all had a good March :).

Winter 2020 Walmart Beauty Box Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with another review and this time it’s of the Winter 2020 Walmart Beauty Box. It is a little hard to call this a winter box when I received it on March 12th, but I’m happy that it came nonetheless. The theme for this box is Winter Wonders. The box itself is white with a Walmart logo in the center that is made of lipstick swatches in various reds and pinks and the inside of the box is blue.

IMG_5233

IMG_5232

The first product we have is the Herbal Essences bio:renew Birch Bark Extract shampoo and conditioner. These have 0% sulfates, parabens, gluten and colorants and are supposed to have gentle color protection. I haven’t used Herbal Essences in a very long time, but I’m going to give this to a friend that I know loves it.

IMG_5235

Next we have the Colgate Optic White Renewal toothpaste. This says it’s high impact white, removes 10 years of yellow stains and is 3% hydrogen peroxide. It’s also sugar free, enamel safe, gluten free and vegan. I have a little kit I carry in my handbag that has little things like this in it so that’s exactly where this is going to go.

IMG_5236

IMG_5237

Moving on we have the Curel Dry Skin Therapy Hydra Skin Moisturizer with Ceramide Complex. This says it immediately absorbs and delivers long lasting non greasy moisture. I use the Curel Wet Skin Moisturizer and I really like that. I don’t have particularly dry skin, but extra moisture is always a plus so I’ll let you guys know what I think of this.

IMG_5238

The second to last product we have is the NYX Makeup Crew 2 piece set. You get two lipsticks in this set. One is a soft matte lip cream and the other is a soft matte metallic lip cream and they’re both in the shade California. I have a couple of the NYX soft matte lip creams and I like them. They have a whipped texture, they’re light on the lips and they have a pretty long wear time. I am mildly concerned to wear the metallic just because the swatch, while gorgeous, was really metallic. But we’ll see.

IMG_5239

IMG_5240

IMG_5241

And the last product we have is the Color Club Nail Lacquer in 1198, It’s Complicated. Color Club is a brand I know of, but haven’t tried anything from. This is a really pretty magenta shade. I do have this on my nails now and it’s as pretty on as it is in the bottle. I put this on my nails on Friday, it’s now Monday and it’s holding up well. This went on great and it seems to have a nice formula.

IMG_5242

IMG_5243

IMG_5254

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your Winter Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next season :).

Blogmas Day Twelve: Christmas Nails

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Twelve! I can’t believe it’s already the last day, it’s been more stressful this year I will admit, but it does feel like it’s flown by. And I will probably be doing it again next year. Today though, I’m going to be showing you the nails that I did this month. Every December I do festive nails and I find it to be a lot of fun, so let’s get into it.

The first week was a little strange because it was right after Thanksgiving and my Thanksgiving polish was still fresh but it kind of fit in so I left it.

SEPT1

What I used was the Sinful Colors, 2621, Nakey Nay and the Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat. Super simple but really pretty.

CHN1

The second manicure I did was in keeping with the simple theme and very wintery and it’s matte white nails. I did forget to take a picture, but what I used was the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails 110, Hard To Get and Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat.

CHN2

For the third manicure this was when I started to get more into the design and I did snowflake nails. But I did them differently than I normally would, so I did one big snowflake on my ring finger and on the rest of the nails I did a bunch of little snowflakes.

CHN5

To do this I used the Salon Perfect 207, Blue Ribbon, Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Fine Tip Pen in 360, Pearly White and the Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat.

CHN3

And the last manicure I did, the one I have on now, is present nails. I do this one every year because they’re super cute, very festive and easy to do.

CHN6

To do this, I used the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 485, Golden-I, Pure Ice 1626, Hit The Floor, Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Fine Tip Pen 380, Red and Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat.

CHN4

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys did festive nails this December I’d love to know what designs you chose.

Until next time, thanks you all for reading the 12 Days of Blogmas. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas :).

September Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy October and Happy Spooky Season. I’m a couple days late, but today I’m going to be doing my September favorites. I feel like the first half of September flew by and the second half moved at a snail’s pace, but in that time there were a few things that became favorites. And with that being said, let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty I have a couple of favorites from my September Sephora Play Box, which I’ll link below. My first being the First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Pores Be Gone Matte Primer. This primer is oil free, has a matte finish, does a great job of blurring pores and is safe for sensitive skin. I don’t use matte primer a lot but this one I’ve really been liking. It does have a scent, which isn’t something I typically like, but this is a fruity/fresh smell so it’s not bad at all. First Aid Beauty makes some of my favorite skincare products and this is now one of them.

SPSP3

My other Play favorite is the Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara in Classic Black. I honestly can’t even tell you how much I love this mascara. From the minute I put it on I was so impressed. It makes my lashes really full and voluminous and super long. Lashes for days. The formula is great because it’s really smooth, I haven’t experienced any flaking or transfer and because it’s so smooth it’s really buildable so no lashes sticking together and looking clumpy. I also really like the brush. Its nice and big and it gets all of my lashes. I highly recommend.

SPSP5

SPSP6

My second to last beauty favorite is a nail polish. It’s Sinful Colors 2621, Nakey Nay from the Naughty Nudes Collection. This polish is so pretty. It’s a bronzey almost caramel color and when the light hits it you can really see the depth and the sparkle. I’ve looked into the rest of the Naughty Nudes Collection and it all looks so nice and like I’m going to be buying more nail polish soon.

SEPT2

SEPT3

SEPT1

And my last beauty favorite is my new hair. I had been growing my hair for so long and I decided it was time to change it up. I knew that I wanted to cut a lot of it off, it ended up being somewhere between 12-15 inches, and I knew that I wanted to be more blonde again. So I told my hairdresser and she went from there. I didn’t ever think that I would do anything in the red family but I really like the shade she chose and overall I’m so happy with it and I feel like it brightens me up, which I’m happy about.

SEPT4

Moving on I have a TV show favorite and it’s Downton Abbey. I was scrolling through Amazon looking for something to watch after finishing a show and I came across Downton. I didn’t watch it when it was on originally but I know what a huge success it was and continues to be. I’m currently on season 3, I think I have one or two episodes left but I’m absolutely loving it. I’m excited to see the movie as well. If you’ve seen the movie, no spoilers, but I’d love to know what you thought.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, and it’s This Train from Joe Bonamassa’s Live At The Sydney Opera House album, which is available on October 25th. This is one of those really fun songs that’s like the perfect balance of bluesy and bouncy. And I’m excited to hear the rest of the album and I definitely recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great September :).

Target Beauty Box Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing a post that I wanted to do for a little while and that is a Target Beauty Box review. I mentioned in my review of the Target Men’s Box that I was sent that by mistake instead of what I actually ordered, but that was sorted quickly and now here we are. I had been hearing about the Target Beauty Box for a bit but I hadn’t tried it, and now that I subscribe to the Walmart Beauty Box I thought it would be interesting to compare the two. So before we get into it I want to mention that the box that I purchased is from June. When I made the purchase the July box was available, but after looking at the two I decided that this one had more items that I would end up using, so that’s what I went with. The box itself is white and the lid is bright and multicolored with birds and some landscape elements. In the middle is the Target logo with ‘beauty’ next to it in black. On the inside surrounding the products is light pink tissue paper.

TBB1

TBB2

So the first product we have is the Pantene Intense Rescue Shots. This is supposed to treat any damage you have and help to prevent split ends. I actually received this in my most recent Walmart box, and I have been trying it out. I won’t say too much because I want to talk about it in an upcoming post, but I have noticed that the ends of my hair have been extra soft.

TBB3

Next up we have the Herbal Essences Bio Renew Revitalize Cucumber and Green Tea Dry Shampoo. This is a dry shampoo that has no parabens, gluten or colorants. It’s pH-balanced and is color safe. Herbal Essences is a brand I have only briefly used but not for many years and I have a couple of dry shampoos that I really love, so we’ll see how this one stands up.

TBB4

Moving on, we have another dry shampoo but this one is the TRESemme Between Washes Volumizing Dry Shampoo. This has mineral clay and citrus, doesn’t leave behind any residue like some dry shampoos can and you’re supposed to be left with what looks like day one, fresh, volumized hair. I also received this in my Walmart box and I have yet to try it but I will and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

TBB5

The second to last product we have is the Pixi T-Zone Peel Off Mask. This has a superfood blend that is supposed to get rid of oil and impurities and leave you with healthy glowing skin. You apply it in an even layer, wait for it to dry and once it has you peel it off. I really like Pixi and I love products like this so I’m excited to try it out.

TBB6

And the last product we have is the CND Vinylux Mini Duo in Romantique. This is a nail polish in a really pretty light pink shade and it comes with a top coat that is supposed to help it resist chips and last for seven days. I’m always buying new polishes, I’ve never used this brand before but I looked into them and it seems like they have a great range of colors. I’m interested to put this to the test and see how well it holds up. I’ll definitely let you guys know what I think.

TBB7

TBB8

That about wraps it up for this post, I did mention that I wanted to compare it to the Walmart box and overall I think they’re very similar. You get pretty much the same amount of products and sometimes the exact same products. With the Walmart box you get a bag and with this you don’t. This is a monthly box and Walmart does it quarterly, so you get four boxes a year, one box per season. And the price is different, this Target box is $7.00, you do get free shipping and free returns. The Walmart box is $5.00 and all you’re paying for there is shipping. And I will leave a link down below for the Target box.

Until next time, you can never subscribe to too many beauty boxes and I’d love to know what your favorite subscription/beauty box is :).

Blogmas Day Twelve: Christmas Nails

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Twelve! I can’t believe it’s already the last day, it’s truly flown by. I really enjoyed it and I’ll probably do it again next year. Today I’m going to be talking about and showing you guys the different nails that I this month. I do festive nails every December and I find it to be a lot of fun, so let’s get into it.

The first week was kind of fail on my part because I forgot, until I was taking the polish off, that I hadn’t taken a picture. But what I did because I wanted something simple to start off, was matte red. And what I used for that was Sinful Colors 852, GoGo Girl and Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat.

The second manicure I did was in keeping with the simple theme and it’s silver and gold. But I wanted it to be slightly different so I did matte silver and shiny gold. If I had a sparkly silver polish I probably would’ve used that because I do have a couple different sparkly golds. But I am happy with how these came out.

To do this I used p2 Techno Chrome polish in 010, Steel Drama and I topped that with the Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat. The gold is Kokie NP45, Euphoria which is topped with the Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat.

Week three I got into the more intricate designs and I went with Santa nails. I don’t do them every year but I think they’re really fun to do.

For this I did use one little brush to make sure the belt was relatively the same on all of them. And the polishes I used were Sinful Colors 852, GoGo Girl (red), LA Colors Color Last CNP31, Onyx (black), Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 485, Golden-I (gold) and on top Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat.

And the last one I did, the one I have on my nails now, is present nails. I really like this design and I’m pretty sure I do these every year but they’re always cute and they make me feel festive. Plus they’re super easy.

HD6

For this I used Pure Ice 1026, Hit The Floor (red), Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 485, Golden-I (gold), the bow is the Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art pen in 380, Red and I topped that with the Pure Ice High Shine Top Coat.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys did festive nails this December tweet me a picture or tag me on Instagram because I’d love to see.

Until next time, thank you all reading the 12 Days of Blogmas, I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas :).

2018 Halloween playlist and festive nails

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be talking about my 2018 Halloween playlist. I did a post like this a few years ago, I will link it down below, and I thought it was about time that I updated it. It’s on Spotify so I will leave a link to it down below if you want to go and give it a listen.

The songs that were on it from years past were I Put A Spell On You, there are three versions, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Buddy Guy and Carlos Santana and my favorite of the three Joe Cocker. Monster Mash (Bobby Pickett and The Crypt-Kickers), Ghostbusters (Ray Parker Jr), Thriller (Michael Jackson), Werewolves Of London (Warren Zevon), Superstition (Stevie Wonder), Bat Out of Hell (Meat Loaf), Black Magic (Little Mix), Highway To Hell (AC/DC), Bad Moon Rising (Creedence Clearwater Revival) and Cajun Moon (Eric Clapton). This year I really took the time to look for songs that I not only like but that I would want to hear if I was at a Halloween party or on Halloween night. So I added the following songs, Hungry Like The Wolf (Duran Duran), Witchy Woman (Eagles), Voodoo Chile (Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood), Voodoo Child (Slight Return) (Jimi Hendrix), Sympathy For The Devil (The Rolling Stones), Black Magic Woman (Santana), Runnin’ With The Devil (Van Halen), Evil Woman (ELO), Evil Woman- Live at Wembley (ELO) I included two versions of this song because sometimes a song is better live and I happen to really like this one live. The Time Warp (Richard O’Brien), Frankenstein (The Edgar Winter Group) and Hells Bells (AC/DC).

Because this post is slightly short and I don’t think I’m posting another Halloween post before the 31st, I’m going to show you guys the festive nails I did yesterday. Normally I go with a bloody nail look, but I wanted to branch out this year so I went with Frankenstein inspired nails. I do like how they came out, but I’m missing a detail brush so the scars are slightly bigger than I wanted them but you can tell what I’m going for.

For this I used LA Colors Color Last in CNP31 Onyx, Salon Perfect 502 Loopy Lime and Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat. I’m really liking mattes right now and I love the look of matte black nails so I’m really happy that I went with it.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have any more songs suggestions let me know and if you did Halloween nails tweet me a picture or tag me on Instagram because I’d love to see.

Until next time, if you’re going to or hosting any parties have fun and I hope you all have a Happy Halloween! 🙂
