Nails of the Week – I’m Alive!

​No, I’m not dead, sorry for the lack of updates these past few weeks. It’s been a combination of writer’s block and a bad cold that has been keeping me away from the computer/blog. I’ll try to be more consistent with my content for the rest of the month.

Today I come with an amazing combination of colors. One of my favorite colors is Lie-Lac by Sinful Colors and I decided to jazz it up a bit and add a cool shimmer/holo/dual chrome topper. I used You Just Wait.

Here’s a look at the nail polish in motion, it’s so beautiful.

 

After the topper, the lilac colored nail polish turned into a cool blue color. At first I thought I wouldn’t like it that much since I love the lilac color, but I did love it!

These two bad boys are available at Walgreens (they have one of the biggest displays ever!), find them at your local store and get your mani on!

How have you been? What colors are you wearing? Are you wearing fall colors, or are you still hanging on to summer?

Nails of The Week – Green Thumb

 

This week I went green!! Sally Hansen’s Green Thumb is one of my favorite nail polishes of all time. I love it! I’v never had a green nail polish before and this one is perfect, it’s super opaque. I love the formula and the shade. For my accent nail, I used a an old gold polish from e.l.f.


I used 3 coats and top coat to achieve this look.

Forever 21+ Sale Scores/Haul!! (Try-on)

I love it when Forever 21 has their sales, at least in-store. Last week, F21 had a 40% sale, but in-store it was an extra 50% off sale prices. I ended up getting 4 dresses for $16. Now that’s what I call a deal!!! Here are some of the dresses that I bought.

f211

Online, this dress was $10.99, in-store it was $15.90. It was on sale for $6.99 and on clearance for $3.50 I love the color of the dress, this dress is bodycon so I would still need to wear some sort of shapewear for me to be fully comfortable in this dress, but I love it anyway.

f212

I love this dress, it is so soft and cozy. If love both colors, but the only option available was the light blue option. This dress was $17.90, both online and in-store. It was on sale for $7.99 and on clearance for $3.99.

f213

This is probably my favorite dress of the bunch. I love how muted the pink is and how it works with my body. It’s super soft, stretchy and you can totally dress it up and wear it in the winter months. This dress was $10.90 online, $15.90 in-store. It was on sale for $6.99 and on clearance for $3.50

f214

This is something that was totally out of my comfort zone, I don’t really do a lot of lace up items, but I had to get it. I love it, the color is vibrant and it’s comfy. This romper was $17.90 original price. It was on sale for $7.99 and I bought it on clearance for $3.99.

Here I am trying it on with a denim jacket (from Ross) that I am obsessed with at the moment.

I recommend everyone to go to F21 during their clearance days, there are so many things that you can buy on the cheap cheap. I got 4 outfits for the price of one. Literally, I came in wanting a dress that was $16, I ended up putting it back and purchasing four!! So amazing!

Mani Monday – Break The Ice (Wet n Wild)

 

Hey guys! for this week, I decided to try a nail polish I’ve never done before. It’s Break The Ice by Wet n wild. My sister received a mini wet n wild collection a while back and she gave some polishes to me.


Here is the little bottle it came with. It’s so cute. I thought that the brush was not going to be workable but I was wrong. It was more or less the same thickness as other brands, but it was not wide like their normal-sized megalast polishes.


I love this color, but one thing I did not love was the application. The nail polish was streaky, I had to apply 4 (!) coats to achieve opacity. Here is how it looks like with the top coat on.

I would have loved it more if the polish was thicker and more opaque.

I think I’m going to play with some nail stickers for next week’s Mani Monday!

Mani Monday – Hazard!

Let’s get back into the swing of this – it’s time for a Mani Monday!!

This week, I decided to recover from that awful manicure and go with a nice coral/orange color – perfect for summer.

This is Hazard by Sinful Colors. I believe that as far as inexpensive nail polishes go, Sinful Colors might be the best.

Although this color was a bit streaky – I had to use 3 coats on some of my nails, my nails were not goopy or sticky, like I felt with Mellow Yellow from Sally Hansen.

I topped the nail polish with my favorite top coat – the wet n wild wildshine Clear Nail Protector
