Jordana In Love

*Purchased By Me

Hey guys! I am back again today to finish off January with another lovely polish from Jordana.

This is another old swatch from the same time as the one in my last post.

This color is called In Love. It is a lovely metallic baby pink with some rose gold tones that appear in the bottle, but you can't see them on my nails. 

Again, I apologize, I can't remember how many coats I did, but I did swatch it on one of my nails and it is sheer so probably three coats would be best for this. I love this color so much, I gotta get me some more Jordana polishes like right away!

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed this post on another Jordana beauty. I feel this brand is very underrated and not talked about much, so help me get the word out about these polishes by buying them up at stores and posting all about them, okay? If you have any posts on Jordana nail polishes, or any Jordana products, let me know in the comments.

Well, that's all I have for you guys today. I hope you enjoyed my post, I'll talk to you guys later. Bye!

Jordana Pink Shock

*Purchased By Me

Hey guys! I decided last night, because I was feeling down about my swatches, that I would switch things up on my blog. I am now going to show you just one polish per post with two swatches each of it, unless it is polishes I got to review.

I wanted to start this switch up off with an old swatch I planned to show you guys earlier with more polishes from this brand that I had, but I never got around to swatching them. 

This is Jordana Pink Shock. It is a bright metallicy pink. I sadly can't remember the amount of coats I did for this, but when looking at the color on the brush, it appears sheer, so you'll need at least two coats of this one. 

I apologize for the ring finger nub, this was back when my ring finger had a serious break. Besides that one nub, I think this is a fantastic swatch and you can really tell this is a gorgeous color!

Jordana polishes retail for under $2 in most drugstores, so this is super affordable. I haven't seen this color in every Jordana display I've checked out, and I've checked them all, so when I saw this I needed it right away!

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed my post and I'll talk to you all later. Bye!

Rainbow Honey Swatches and Review

*Sent for Me to Review

Hey guys! I hope you all are entering the contest and getting your friends to enter too!

Today I have a group of five polishes that was sent to me by Rainbow Honey to review. I want to state now that after I swatched the first polish, my camera went dead so the rest of my shots are from my cell phone, so excuse me if they are not up to par with my usual stuff, but I did my best. Did a little editing because acetone dried out my skin and made things look awful! Sorry, just want to be honest with you guys.

Okay, here are the lovelies I have up to show you!

First up, I have to show you Magic Cake! This is a glitter topper with with a mix of neon colored glitter. I did one coat over Milani Neon: Pink Rocks. This is the one that I took with my camera. It was hard to get the color to photograph correctly, hence the very bright, orange photo. I love this glitter topper a lot.

Next up, this one is called The Kraken. This is a "marine jelly with a blue and green glow filled with glitters, shimmer, and the sea monster’s own holographic Crashing Boom Bang!", as described on their website. I did three coats alone. I had no problems with application.

This next one is probably my favorite of the five she sent me. For some reason lately, I am in love with creme colored polishes mixed with glitter, and this one is a fabulous one! This is called Sweet Talk, from her upcoming Sweet Talk collection. Rainbow Honey describes this as "decadently sweet collection of pastel glitters in a white jelly with hidden shimmer!" I did three coats by itself. I had no problems with application.

Next, this one is called Xoxo, also from her upcoming Sweet Talk collection. This is a glitter topper that is a mix of gold, copper, red, and pink glitters. I did one coat over Covergirl Outlast Constant Caribbean. This is such a pretty glitter topper and I had no problems with application.

The last one I have up to show you is called Papillion. This is from their upcoming Midnight Garden Spring Collection that is coming in mid-March. This is a pink glitter topper filled with holographic pink glitters and holographic pink butterfly glitters. It was so shiny, I had trouble getting a photo to show the correct color. I did one coat over Nicole By OPI's Deck the Dolls. It was a little hard to get the butterfly glitters on my nails, but I managed at least one on each nail.

I hope you guys enjoyed my review! That's all I have for you guys now, so I'll talk to you all later, bye!

Milani Neon: Pink Rocks

*One Purchased By Me and One Gifted

Hey guys! Today I have a new polish to show you that I just picked up, another by Milani.

This one is from Milani's Neon line. It is called Pink Rocks. This is just what it says, it is a super neon, bright pink polish. It was so hard to photograph, either my camera is starting to not want to photograph for me anymore, or it is because it is bright. I know bright polish is hard to photograph, but this time it was worse. This is the best shot I got. I did three coats.

I have another swatch I wanted to surprise you guys with. I have another Milani polish to show you, it's gorgeous! It is called Twinkle, and it is a dark blue, dark purple, and medium purple fine glitter topper. I took this swatch a while ago, so that's why my ring nail is shorter. I did one coat over Milani Cool Vibe. I love this color.

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed my post, and continue to enter my big indie giveaway if you haven't already!

I'll talk to you guys later, bye!

My First Lip Gloss Review!

*Purchased By Me

Hey guys! Today I have something new that I am doing here. I recently wanted to get into reviewing lip gloss after I bought a couple of lip glosses that really got me wanting to buy more. Lately I have been buying a bunch of lip gloss and wanted to share with you guys some swatches and my opinions on them.

Here are all of the lip glosses I have up to show you guys today!

The first one I have up to show you is Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color, in Do I Make You Blush?. 

This is a medium pink. This goes on smooth but dries matte. It is very dry and pulls on your mouth, and is super difficult to remove. I like the color, but not a big fan of the formula. This is the only one I was able to photograph with my digital camera. The rest were taken with my phone.

Next up, this one is Rimmel London Stay Gloss 3D Lip Gloss, in Back Row Smooch. 

This is a nice sheer pink with a lot of 3D glitter and shine, like a bit of a shade shifting color. I think this is so pretty. It goes on well!

This next one is another one from Wet n Wild, from their MegaSlicks collection, in Cotton Candy.

This appears like it would be pink on the lips, but it is actually a very sheer, clear gloss. It is very shiny though, which I like.

Next up, this one is NYC Liquid Lipshine in Fashion Ave Fuchsia.

This is a nice bright pin that is a little sheer. It goes on well and has a lot of shine. I love this color so much!

This last one is also from NYC, from their City Proof 8 HR Extended Wear Lip Gloss line. This is called Perpetually Hot Pink.

This one is the brightest and richest of the bunch. Just as the name suggests, this is pretty much a hot pink lip gloss. I love the shine and color.

The only one I didn't care for was the Wet n Wild Megalst one but the rest were all fantastic!

If you like anything you see, you can find these at Walgreens or CVS, among other stores. The Wet n Wild Meglast Liquid Lip Color sells for $2.99, Wet n Wild MegaSlicks is $1.99, Rimmel Stay Glossy 3D is $4.99, NYC Liquid Lipshine is $2.49, and NYC Up to 8HR City Proof Gloss is $3.49.

I hope you guys liked this post. If you would like me to do more posts like this again, let me know in the comments. If you have any easy fixes to improving my images, also feel free to let me know in the comments.

Well, that's all I have for you guys now. Talk to you guys later, bye!

"Vintage Mom's Stash" Haul


Hey guys!

Today I have a type of post that you haven't seen me do in a really long time, a haul post.

Well, today my mom was doing a little cleaning. She likes nail polish just like I do, but hers were all over the place. She had some in the computer desk, some under her bed, and some on her dresser. 

I pulled out a box from under her bed, and it was covered in dust. Which means, it wasn't touched in a really long time, so the polishes were quite old. I took it to the couch and my mom and I looked through them.

I started looking and saw a lot that were so pretty that I wanted, so my mom let me take any of the ones I wanted, and then she took what she wanted, and donated the rest.

If you can tell me how old any of these are, let me know. I am sure they are not really super old, but I know some of these are in older bottles that the companies have since changed so they are old.

Okay, let's get to the polishes. Sorry about photo quality, photographing nails I can do with my usb light, but it doesn't work with bottles and usually I photograph bottles at night or apparently in areas that are dark because my photos always come out not that sharp, but these are the best shots I got.

Here is a lineup of all of the lovelies.

The first one is called Pure Ice Rio. This is a fuchsia pink leaning towards purple with loads of shimmer.

Next, this is Rimmel 60 Seconds Mirror Nail Polish in Cyber. This is a metallic baby pink. This is in a very old bottle style of theirs.

This is Rimmel 60 Seconds Vinyl Shine Stop Traffic. This is a metallic hot magenta.

Next, this one is called Night Before. This one and the next two after I am so excited to have and can't wait to try them out. This is a shimmery, duochome-ish dark purple.

This one is called Climax. I love colors like this. it is a shimmery duochrome-ish lavender.

This one is called Green with Envy. My pic does it no justice, it is a shimmery, metallic green teal.

Next up, this is CQ Mystical. It is a metallic deep purple.

Last one, this one is CQ Deep Blue Sea. This is a metallic navy blue.

Again, sorry for the photos, but hope you can tell sorta what each color looks like. I hope you enjoyed seeing these vintage polishes!

Well, that's all I have to show you guys for now. I'll talk to you guys later, bye!
