Nail Polish Haul

Last week Revlon was having a great deal on Revlon and Sinful Colors nail polishes!  I believe Revlon polishes were $3.99 and then you got $3 back in Register Rewards, making it like you only pay $.99.  On top of that I also had a $1 off Revlon polish so I basically got it for free! With my register Rewards I got 3 Sinful Colors polishes and a Essie polish from their new collection – not sure of the name off the top of my head, I think it’s the Carry On collection? Anyway, in total I paid $10 for 4 polishes, including Essie.  Not bad in my opinion!


All in natural lighting, no flash.

 I tried to pick more fall-toned colors since it’s quickly approaching!

Sinful Colors L to R (same order as above):  Dancing Nails, Soul Mate, Vacation Time

L to R:  Essie Power Clutch, Revlon Gold Coin

July Beauty Favorites

Summer is when it’s a big deal if I wear makeup 4 times in a month.  It’s always hard to find favorites for the summer months because I’m all about minimalism and products that work great for on-the-go.  However, I have been able to compile a group of products that I could not live without or have been using consistently all month long!

left to right:

  • Maui Islands Secret Browning Formula –  I  bought this in California a while ago and it is my favorite tanning oil/lotion.  It will make me beyond bronze in only an hour.  I think they put some kind of magic in it because it does amazing things.  I only have a bit left, but I will so be buying some the minute that I run out!
  • Pink Nail Polish  –  I haven’t wanted any color besides pink on my nails, toes or fingers, all month long.   Also the brighter, more vibrant, the better!
  • Deep Conditioner – Because I’m in the pool so much I’ve been using a deep conditioner constantly to replenish the moisture in my hair so it doesn’t get too try from chlorine and the sun.  However, to take it one step further I mix all my deep conditioners together and I’m pretty sure the effects are a lot better than if you did it alone.  Of course, that could be imagined because it’s what I want to believe..
  • Biore UV Perfect Milk SPF50+ PA+++ (not pictured) – I bought this specifically for our Havasu trip. To be honest I absolutely hate putting sunscreen on my face because it always feels too thick, oily, and as if it’s clogging my pores.  Having extremely oily skin to begin with I hate putting sunscreen on and almost never put it on.  However, I knew that would not be smart being on a boat for about 7 hours in direct sun.  The consistency is extremely liquidy and white, almost like non-fat milk.  However, it dreis almost instantly and in a matte finish.  Your skin is left with protection from the sun, a fairly matte finish, and a feel as if nothing is on your skin to begin with.  The only place I know to order it is Amazon, which is linked above, because it is only sold in Asia.  Due to this, all the writing is in Chinese so I am not sure if it is water-resistant or not.

NOTD: NYC Uptown + My Attempt At DIY Ombre Nails









I also decided to try out the ombre nail effect with gold polish.  It chipped really quickly, as you will see the in the photos and looked better in real life than on camera.  Obvs I still need practice.  I also have plans to do ombre nails with a few colors so stay tuned for that!

Drugstore Haul






I haven’t bought new makeup (exclude a few nail polishes before our vacation) in a few months.  While this feeling may not last, I currently feel like I have enough eye shadows, blushes, etc. to last me for 3 lifetimes and have not had the urge to buy any new items lately.  However, I’ve been wanting some Wet ‘n Wild lately, especially their new Gilded Collection, so I headed over to Walmart for a few cheap thrills.
