I’m a little late on this bandwagon. But it’s been busy around here. From packing up my whole life, to getting ready to graduate and leave my friends to graduating and moving away from all of my friends, it’s been a time. But I squeezed in this nail review for you!
As I’ve said, everyone has already talked about this collection, and for good reason. These polishes are incredible.
This is the ‘Desert Divas’ collection. This was one of 3 collections that dropped all for the spring from Sinful Colors, underneath the title ‘Spring Trippin’. It also included the ‘Bayou Babes’ Sinful Shine collection (which I reviewed here) and the ‘Chic Chicas’ collection, which I’ll have a couple from soon.
For now, let’s look at the ‘Desert Divas’ collection. This is a 9 bottle collection. I have 8 here. So there were 8 that were in the main displays, and then Sinful Colors did that thing where they limited released one color to make it seem super limited and make people go crazy over it – it worked. But I got it.
These all have the ‘Stoned Crystal Shimmer’ sticker on them, which means they’re all a cream color base with little silver shimmers throughout it. Stunning. I knew I had to have these. My Walgreen was severely low stocked, but luckily Christy was able to hook me up! She found a full display and sent me the shades I still needed! Be sure to check her out on Instagram @he.chosethenails – she does lovely nail art! Have I mentioned before how I love the nail polish community?
Enough chatter, let’s get into the swatches! Hopefully you already picked some up!
Today I have a brand I haven’t tried before! This review comes from Palladio Beauty. Palladio is an affordable brand, and you can buy their products at Sally Beauty stores and online at palladiobeauty.com and on Sally Beauty’s website as well.
I got a gosh dang good deal on their eyeshadow crayons when they were running a special – buy all 12 colors of them for only $6, the price of 1. That’s right, I got 12 eye crayons, normally retailing for $72, for $6. So basically I couldn’t say no.
They’re called the ‘Herbal Crayon’ Shadow & Liner crayons.
It’s been a hot second since I’ve posted (I feel like I say this in every post. Someday I’ll get my life together). But, I graduate college in two weeks. When did that happen? It’s 2 weeks exactly from today! I get all overwhelmed thinking about it.
So my life has been consumed with finishing portfolios and applying for jobs. I have to be an adult soon and I’m not ready.
Let’s just talk about this. Today I have a nail polish review! Look out! I’m still slugging my way through the spring collections. It’s not summer until June in my book. So bring on spring!
Today I have the full China Glaze spring collection. This is called the ‘Spring Fling’ collection and it’s a 12 bottle collection. China Glaze (and OPI) are going to be the real reason I go broke with these 12 bottle collections lemme tell you.
I bought mine off transdesign.com – that website is really why I can afford this addiction, do wholeheartedly recommend.
This post is going to be very photo heavy – with 12 colors and comparisons at the end, there’s a lot that has to be shown. So let’s get right into it!
I have something a little different on the blog today! It’s a hair treatment, and it’s from Lush! I consider this as more of a post about a favorite product, that I love recommending to other people!
If you don’t know, Lush is a company that specializes in handmade, all natural hair and skin treatments, and are famous for their bath products, specifically their bath bombs – which I love. You can buy their products online at lushusa.com. But I recommend, if possible, go into their stores. The employees are always incredible, and can direct you to the right treatments, and you can smell everything in person. The very first time I went to a Lush store, I spent 2 hours in there as the employees had me try basically every product they sell. It was incredible.
Today I have a review of a Hard Candy product. If you don’t know, Hard Candy is a brand available exclusively at Walmart. You can buy them on Walmart.com – which thank god, they seem to be better at putting their new products up. (I’m going to be moving away from access to a Walmart, where I only go for Hard Candy, Flower, and the other Walmart exclusives, so that’s a relief for me that I don’t have to leave them). ANYWAY.
This is the Sheer Envy ‘Prismatic Highlighter’. It claims to give “an Iridescent effect on skin” and retails for $6.
I’m trying my best to catch up on all the spring collections. THERE’S JUST SO MANY. But we’re getting there. And I mean, it’s technically still spring. Spring just arrived in the UP 2 weeks ago, so I’m technically right on time. That’s right, I’m making excuses for myself – it’s my blog, I do what I want.
Better late than never I say.
Anyways, as you can see from the title, we’re looking at the Essie Spring collection! You know, OPI is my one true love, but Essie is slowly creeping into my heart as well. Especially with this collection – spoiler alert. Ever since I’ve gotten into blogging, and therefore been reviewing the newest Essie collections, they’ve been killing it on formulas.
And this collection is no exception, so let’s get right into it.
This spring collection is another 6 bottle collection, like normal. It features 6 cream colors. Onto the swatches!
Guys, I’m graduating from college in exactly a month. Where has the time gone? Soon, I’ll be moving to Chicago and starting a real adult job (I gotta get a real adult job first whoop) and life is moving real fast but I’m excited.
I just love to give you really personal things when you’re all just here for a review, yeah yeah I know, and it’s not going to stop. ANYWAYS.
Today, I have a super affordable product to review! It’s from the brand LA Colors. LA Colors is the brand you see boatloads of makeup from in Dollar Tree. They’re also sold in Dollar Generals and Family Dollar. You can also buy from their website at lacolors.com! (I feel like that’s a new thing and I’m so excited.) That’s super nice if you don’t have any of those stores near you as well.
