Huge Walgreens Haul

*Products Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

I am back today to share with you all a great haul that I did yesterday. Everything I am going to show you, I purchased from Walgreens.

Yesterday they marked down a bunch of cosmetics and hair care products. One associate that worked at that Walgreens, who had the day off, grabbed a lot of the better items. I managed to get the second best items that were there, which is okay with me.

I got eleven items yesterday for just $3.35 total. 8 nail polishes, two eye shadow palettes, and one mirror compact.

Let's start with all of the polishes I picked up, and their prices.

All of the polishes here, except for the last one on the right, I paid $0.10 each for and retail for $1.99 - $2.19. First one is Fantasy Makers by Wet n Wild. This is called Ghouls Rush In and is a bright pink. Next is also from Fantasy Makers. This one is called Roach Busters and is a shimmery neon green.

The next one is from Wet n Wild's Megalast line., and this one is called LAC - My Mani?. This is a plain white creme.

The next four are all Sinful Colors. The first one is Bring It Sheer. This is a shimmery sheer super light mint green. Next to it, that is called Red Eye. This one is a shimmery dark pink. The next one is from Sinful Color's Sinful Shine line. The name of this one is called Spitfire. It is a basic lavender creme. The next one is called Outta Space. This is a frosty ivory.

The last one of the polishes that I picked up is from Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Line. This one is called Blueberry Blast. This one is a nice medium-dark shimmery blue. This is the only one of the polishes that I paid $0.50 for and retails for $3.19.

I next picked up a couple of eyeshadow palettes. First up, my favorite of the two, is from Wet n Wild's Fergie line. This is a ten color rectangle palette. The name of this collection is called Paris Runway. The colors in this collection go from nude to dark, all metallics and all good for going out, or for any time if you are me. I picked this one up for $1, and retails for around $7.

The second palette I got is from LA Colors. This is called Jewel. This one came out during Christmas time. I was almost going to pick it up one day, but changed my mind. Glad I didn't and waited until now. This collection is a bunch of springtime, jewel colors. From pinks, to blues, to purples, greens, and a brown and black. Some are shimmery, some are not. I only paid $0.50 and it retails for $3.

The last thing that I picked up is a mirror compact. This one is from Conair. It is from the Disney's Good vs Evil line. It shows Aurora and Maleficient side by side. I paid $0.50 for it, and I think it retails for at least $5.

Well, that is my entire haul from yesterday's trip to Walgreens. If any of you guys recently stopped by your local Walgreens and found some great deals yourself, let me know in the comments and share some pics!

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

Willow Tree Minerals Polishes Swatches and Review

*Products Sent for Review

Hey guys!

I am back today to share with you some products that I received to swatch and review for you guys.

The brand that was lovely and let me review some of their polishes is called Willow Tree Minerals. The owner is Lora, and she works in Thornton, Co. They are a brand that strives to be organic and good for the earth. As per their website,,

"Willow Tree Minerals is a family owned and operated mineral makeup and pure & natural body care company.

Their line of polishes is called Candy Paint. Their polishes are free of heavy metals and dyes, have no harsh odors, are non-toxic, do no damage to both your nails or the environment, has a water based formula, and is long lasting. The bottles the polish is housed in are made from recycled glass and doesn't harm the environment.

I was sent two colors in their polish line of my choice to review. These are very fun colors, so get excited! Here is a preview!

The first of the two that I have to show you guys is called Jawbreakers, and the colors remind me of just that. It is a glitter topper with a super, super sheer grey base. It is filled with blue, yellow, hot pink, and black small bar, circle, hex, and triangle glitters. I did three coats by itself to see if any base would form, but it didn't. It is super pretty and would be great over another color. Application was fantastic. (Sorry for my pinky, was buffing down my nails and accidentally went too low on that one)

Next, this one is called Italian Ice. This one is also a glitter topper, but can be worn by itself as well. It is a glitter packed polish filled with micro robin's egg blue, dark blue, holographic, and dark pink glitters. I did two coats by itself. I used a bit of placement to get this look. Application was great.

Candy Paint polishes, and Willow Tree Minerals are fantastic. They are so pretty and go on great. I also love how they are making all of their products safe for the consumer and the environment while not sacrificing on style in the least bit. We could use less products that leave a carbon footprint so to speak, and these help eliminate that. Their polishes can be purchased on their Etsy page, Besides polish, they also carry makeup, face, and body products. Their polish goes for $9.95 each for 16ml bottles.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I hope you guys enjoyed this review and the polishes that I had to show you. I'll talk to you all later, bye!

Butter London: Lolly

*Product Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

Today I have a lovely polish to show you, something bright and fun to get you away from all of those light, airy, white and baby blue polishes from winter and spring.

This polish is by Butter London. It is called Lolly. This is a metallic electric pink. I did three coats and one coat of Barielle top coat. I love this color, bright colors really make me feel happy.

This is only the second Butter London polish that I have every swatched, so it brought me right back to the first one I ever tried and I have noticed that my skills have grown in a huge way.

Butter London polishes can be purchased at Macy's, Nordstrom, Dillards, ULTA, and other fine retailers. You can also find these at TJMaxx, which is where I picked up this one. Polishes retail for around $15 to $20, or $4.99 at TJMaxx.

That's all I have to share with you guys for now, I hope you all enjoyed. I will talk to you all later, bye!

Orly Color Blast: Frozen Collection

*Products Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

I am back today to show you guys two of the shades in the new Orly Color Blast: Frozen Collection. I just picked these up recently from Walgreens. I saw the entire display and I just had to pick up a couple of these.

Here is a preview of the shades:

First one of the two up is called Frozen. This color is just like the name, a frosty blue color that shifts to a frosty minty color. I did three coats by itself. I love this color, it is really great for winter, or even for Spring as a pastel.

Second up, this one is called Coronation Ball. This one is a lilac glitter topper. I did three coats by itself, and it does build up nicely on its own.

I think these colors are so pretty, and really fun. While meant to be winter themed colors, so go with the movie Frozen, I think at least the two I've picked, and others, would work great for spring. These polishes, so far only spotted at Walgreens, cost $6.99 each or $10.99 for two packs. (These two sadly were not together in a two pack).

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

Sinful Colors: New Winter-Spring 2015 Shades, Plus One

*Products Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

I am back today with some new shades that I have picked up at Walgreens from Sinful Colors.

They recently came out with some new collections. Their collections usually comprise a bunch of already released shades mixed with a few new shades.

I picked up three shades that were new for this year. One from their Flirt with Hearts collection and two from their Bloomblast collection, along with one shade that is new-ish, but not from this year's collections.

Here is a preview of the polishes I have for you guys to check out.

The first one that I have up to show you is from their new Bloomblat line for this spring. This one is called Flower Power. This is a sheer, creamy baby pink polish filled with dark and light pink glitters and white glitters, micro and small sizes. I did three coats by itself. It still shows a little visible nail line, but I like the look Application was fantastic.

Next up, this one is also from their spring Bloomblast line. This one is called Petal Be the Day. It is a super sheer periwinkle blue polish with light purple and cornflower blue large glitter and micro blue glitter. I did three coats. It has a base color in the bottle, but it doesn't show up on the nail for some reason. Application was great.

The third one that  have to show you guys is from their Flirt with Hearts collection. This one is called Love Sprinkles. This is a glitter topper filled with light pink glitters, white glitters, and large white hearts. I topped this one over Sinful Colors Daredevil. I did two coats to get a better coverage. Application was fine, but it was hard to get out the larger heart glitters. Luckily I managed a couple to show you guys.

The last one is one of my favorites. This is called Daredevil. There are actually a few varieties of this one. One bright pink one, and this one that I have, a sort-of tie dye coral-bright pink mix. I did three coats by itself. It is super gorgeous! Application was a breeze.

All of these shades are gorgeous. They go on so well. If you guys can find these in your local Walgreens while the collections are out for the season, I recommend that you pick these up!

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