Copper Penny and Black Mesh

A lovely follower of mine Jessy commented on my original post of Revlon's 'Copper Penny'. She suggested I put shatter on top. I don't have shatter but I do have 'Black Mesh' from China Glaze. I paired these up yesterday. I really like this!

I used two coats of 'Copper Penny'. I based it with Nail Life Gripper and topped it  in the last pics with Seche Vite.

Thanks Guys!! have a great day!

Ombre Nails.. and I need patience :D

So I've never tried an Ombre look, but was curious. So I guess this is my interpretation. On my left thumb I started to use scotch tape for the angles, but I didn't have the patience and drew the lines myself. So some are crooked and they aren't very even... but that's okay lol

 I used Nail Magic as my base, Ulta's 'Snow White', NYC's 'Sidewalkers', Sinful Colors 'Black on Black' and topped them off with Seche Vite

 I accented with Color Club's 'Starry Temptress' This looks super good over black.

Thanks for reading! And sorry about the late post! Have a great night!

Essie French Affair

'French Affair' is a gorgeous rosy pink. I think this is what Barbie was painting on her tips and toes while Ken was mowing the lawn. It's that pink and that wonderful! This has a great formula, just like 'Sand Tropez'. It became opaque for me in two coats.

I was pretty skeptical about an Essie pink polish. I had tried 'Sugar Daddy' and that was just ridiculous! It was sooooooo sheer and I hated that formula. So I was definitely pleasantly surprised and I ended up loving this color! It's so bright and summery!

LOL, and I totally forgot to clean up before taking these, sorry! Thanks for checking me out!! Have a fantastic day!!

Bigger haul.. still pretty mini though :D (Pic Heavy)

Another Haul Post.. ack!
I picked up Urban Decay's Naked Palette at Sephora. I had been wanting this palette so bad! The colors are so gorgeous in all the swatches I saw and are sooo awesome irl!

That's Urban Decay Primer Potion attached.

I had no clue that the palette has a felt type texture...weird! :D

A shadow brush came with the palette.

I have another post coming with swatches of all the colors. I know you've probably seen them before but I want to anyway darn it! :D

The Tokidoki Pittura Brush Set is the cutest ever!!! I love the characters and the dyed tips of the bristles. I'm not exactly sure how I'll store them, but they are cute nonetheless!

Bath and Body Works is hosting their Semi Annual Sale. There are literally thousands of products 50% - 75% off! crazyness!

Cherry Vanilla Body Mist.. smells soooo good!
Very fresh and fruity

White Citrus Body Mist. Smells like Lilacs and oranges. Very Stark and fresh.

Foaming Soaps. Aqua Blossom smells like flowers lol. Idk how else to describe it.
Caribbean Escape should have just been called Papaya. Sweet, fruity Papaya :D

The sales woman said this is a great exfoliator before tanning. It smells just like the ocean, fresh and salty.

I've been getting a lot of self tanner samples where ever I go lately so I decided to pick this up and start trying them.
This smells exactly like Key Lime Pie.

This is hand gel, like germ-x. It smells just like a red apple. So juicy and amazing!
It dries pretty quick and doesn't leave a tacky residue.

This smells more of pomegranate and I don't pick up much citrus, but smells good nonetheless.
I think they might have changed their formula for lotions as well. i usually don't like them
because they don't seep into my skin, but this one does and I really like it! It's very moisturizing!

My mom loved this so much she got a HUGE bottle of it! lol. It smells just like an alcoholic apple lol

O.P.I's 'Sparrow me the drama' What was supposed to be my first full size O.P.I.. my mom commandeered it..
I'm never getting it back lol.

Well thanks for reading!! What are your fave products from Bath and Body Works? With this sale I've tried new stuff and love them even more! Thanks for following! Have a great day!
