Christmas Present Review #2 (Picture Spam)

Hey all! So as promised, I have my second xmas present for review today! I save this one for last because it was my favorite!! :)

The Color Workshop Nail Stage Collection ($10 @ my local Wal-Mart).

*Overall I was super happy, for the $10 my mom spent, I think it was worth it for all these products!!
*All the polishes except 1 were all shimmers or glitters, the other one was a creme.
*The french mani polishes worked great, although the white polish was a bit sheer!

Includes the following: 

  • Cuticle Cutter
  • Cuticle Pusher 
  • Cuticle Trimmer
  • Tweezers
  • Scissors 
  • Nail Clipper
  • Nail Buffer 
  • Nails Care Sticks
  • 2 Toe Spacers 
  • Nail Station (hand rest, which i love!)
  • French Mani Stencils (did not work) 
  • 14 nail polishes (3 are for a french mani)     
Now onto the nail polish reviews (they do not have names btw) :

*A red creme more on the coral family (opaque in 2 coats) 
*One of my favorites

*An iridescent lilac with purple micro glittlers  (opaque in 3-4 coats) 

*Sheer purple base with holo glitter (opaque in 4-5 coats) 
*Really pretty, love it! 

*Sheer black base with mini silver and green glitters (opaque in 2-3 coats) 

*Nude pink base with purple micro glitter (opaque in 3-4 coats) 
*This is also one of my favorites, looks gorgeous against my skin color 

                                  Click to see the flakies!! :) 
*Sheer iridescent base with silver flakies (this is great for layering, opaque in 4-5 coats) 
*This one is my favorite! I love polishes with flakies! 

*Gold/ copper shimmer polish 

*Metallic/iridescent pink (opaque in 3-4 coats) 

*Brown base with copper shimmers (opaque in 2 coats) 
*Also one of my favorites! 

*Bright pink base with purple micro glitter 

*Clear base with tons of holo glitters 
*A very very very close dupe of China Glaze in Fairy Dust 

                                    The French Mani Set 
*The french pink is a perfect shade for a french mani 
*The white is a bit sheer but two coats works 
*The topcoat takes awhile to dry & add a bit of shine 

*Alright so I hope you guys liked my review! I will be back to doing mani sometime later this week! & I will try to come up with a new years mani! Bye! 

*Which polish do you think is prettiest?

Christmas Present Review #1

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great Christmas! :) I would love  to know what you all got as presents?? Leave a comment below! So my mom got me a few gifts and 2 of them were nail polish sets of course :) Today i will share one of them  & stay tuned tomorrow for the other one! & I hope this makes up for my 2 missed days of 12 Days of Christmas!

Alright so she got me a Sally Hansen Merry Manicure! ($10) :

Includes the following:

1 Insta-Dri Nail Polish in Presto Pink 
  • Dont like the brush, it is way to thick 
  • Love, love, love the color! Goes on a bit brighter than the color of the bottle 
  • It's coverage is amazing (opaque in one coat) but it leave streaking, but another coat fixes that  
Quick Swatch 

  • Color is a bit pinker in this picture (but the real color is a bit more like the bottle but brighter) 

1 Nail Clipper & 1 Nail File 

  • Nail Clipper works great! 
  • Nail File works good as well but I only use glass or crystal files on my nails 
1 Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat 
  • Applies easily
  • Gives the polish great shine! :)
  • Does not dry very quick. The package said it would dry in 30 seconds but it took a little over a minute (I'm sticking to Seche Vite, but if i ever run out, this will do) 
1 Nails & Cuticles Hand Creme in Shea Butter 
  • This creme smells amazing!! It has a bit of a lemony/fresh scent! I love it! 
  • Applies great! 
  • It is not too thick or oily and I really like it! 
  • It does soften my hands & overall I'm very pleased with it! 

*Alright well I hoped you guys liked my review of my Christmas present! I definitely would recommend this to anyone! Like I said, stay tuned tomorrow for review #2 :) 

*Leave a comment below telling me what you favorite present was!

12 Days of Christmas: Day 2- Candy Cane!!

So the other day i bought a gorgeous red nail polish with mini red hex glitters. Personally i think its a dupe for China Glaze in Ruby Pumps. Anyways i thought it would be cute to make candy cane inspired nails! Enjoy!!

* In this post i decided to make a tiny video of the things i used, let me know what you guys think!!

12 Days of Christmas: Day 1- Sugar Plum Fairy

Hey guys! So i wanted to do something similar to the challenge i did for Halloween (10 days of Halloween). It was originally supposed to be 13 day of Halloween but i got sick so i changed the title. Anyways i really enjoyed doing that so i thought why not do something similar for Christmas!! I chose 12 day because of the that one song you always hear around the holidays. Some of these are Christmas related & some are just inspired by winter!
* I apologize in advance if i dont get to do 12 post because I am moving & ill be pretty busy
* For day one i was trying to come up with an idea & my little sister is obsessed with the song "Sugar Plum Fairy" from the nutcracker so i was like thats perfect! Enjoy :)

*I chose these polished because the first polish was a gorgeous plum color (as you can see its a purple & pink duochrome) & then glitter because of the fair part!
